Each striving to be the world’s number one Latin Mass Killer, anti-church partisans Blase Cupich and Wilton Gregory both confect fictititious commands -having zero force of law- to eradicate the Catholic Mass from their respective, alleged jurisdictions. Targeting the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, and attempting to suppress their Masses at the end of July, Cupich takes the lead with the sheer malice and severity harbored in his slash-and-burn edict. Of course, such wild-eyed mania in attempting to exterminate Catholicism comes as surprise to exactly no one paying attention to events since the publication of Anti-Pope Francis I’s pretended Apostolic Letter of July 2021, Traditionis custodes.
Catholics in Chicago, however, are at center stage of the real story: ground zero of the threshing floor presently winnowed by our Most Dread Lord and Judge of all history. The brethren there will soon discover, and Gateway implores them to share far and wide with the rest of us, on which side of the bright red line will stand Canon Talarico, ICK Provincial for the U.S.? On the Catholic side of the line will be found one of two stances.
Position one will have the Canon formally requesting clarification from Cupich: on whose authority can the Anti-church Prelate suppress Catholic Mass? Furthermore, if Cupich will please clarify the authority claimed by Bergoglio, author of Traditionis custodes. Clarification is needed because Bergoglio claims to be Pope, yet visible and unmistakable signs of Benedict XVI’s ongoing Papacy remain evident. Uncertainty will best be cleared up with the irrefutable legal evidence of Benedict XVI’s abdication conforming to Canon 332.2 of the Code of Canon Law, requiring Benedict’s explicit resignation of the munus. Also most helpful will be the signed certifications from the College of Cardinals in 2013, testifying that the See was indeed vacant. Failing any of the above certification and supporting documentation, Cupich’s command will be disregarded as originating from an illegitimate source; as contrary to the will of Almighty God, and the Supreme Law of the Church. The Shrine will thus remain open, confessions will be heard and marriages performed, per Canon 1335 of the Code of Canon Law, until such time as said explanations and clarifications be made.
Incidentally, the above Position One serves as effective rejoinder to the following tiresome rhetorical question asked by far too many pastors: “it has been almost 10 years since we’ve been dealing with Bergoglio, so what does it matter about Benedict?” The course of action outlined above indicates that Benedict has been telling every little loyal priest and layman alike, “you matter very much, if only you cling to the Truth with love, faith and fortitude! You can do great things to stop anti-church, but you have to be willing to try!”
Position two will be much simpler: divide the assemblies and clergy among assigned residences for a return to the catacombs, and carry on the Church’s mission in a geographically distributed fashion.
Contrariwise, the Anti-church side of the bright red line will be observed to have been taken by the abrupt abandonment of the faithful, shut out of their Masses once again, who watch as their priests literally run away from them as their flocks beg them for the sacraments.
No More Precious Middle Ground
exists for those lions of Tradition who feather their nests while asserting the legitimacy of the anti-pope. All those crypto-Jews among both clergy and traditional Catholic opinion shapers (a.k.a. Jewish con-artists) must choose. All the paid flunkies of the Crypto-Jewish cabal of Opus Dei must likewise take a stand. Once again, it is Gateway’s position that anti-church has figuratively teed up a home run ball for Roman Catholicism with the publication of the mindless Bergoglian babble known as Traditionis custodes.
No more will Catholics have to listen to the insipid prattling of pastors who insist that, “we have to work with these people” (the same people who work tirelessly to exterminate the Faith). No more will Catholics be subject to the dim-witted rationalizations such as “we have to do whatever they say or we will have no Latin Mass at all.”
No matter how meager their means, or difficult the way, Catholic clergy will obey Christ, and continue the business of saving souls.
In parallel fashion but opposite direction, no matter how much they furrow their brows and claim that their hands are tied, and that they really want to help, the Christ-hating cowards in thrall to anti-church will defy Him as they persist in leading souls to hell, or in abandoning those who strive to attain Heaven.
With Calvary comes clarity: in August, the brethren in Chicago will discover the difference between those clergy who love Christ and His Church, and those who have always hated both. Soon also the same knowledge will arrive for the rest of us.
It is with deep regret that Gateway reports the news of the death of our contributor and commenter, Drumgarive. Early on the morning of Friday July 8th, while at his customary walk/practice shooting on his favorite golf course, Drumgarive collapsed, and died moments later. Born on today’s date, July 24th, 1935; Drumgarive leaves behind his wife of 62 years, and the four remaining of his five children. Drumgarive was 86.
