Photo: St. Peter's Consumed by Flames UPDATED

Your watch, Pope Francis.

If you arrived via Pewsitter, the Bear invites you to bookmark his blog before you leave. Welcome!

ADDED: The Bear has not been able to find a price tag for this tasteless celebration of paganism. Surely that money would have been better spent on feeding the hungry, and homing the homeless. After all, it's just global warming propaganda, so the Bear is sure that -- what's that? The Pope knew all about it? He wanted a splashy propaganda coup for climate talks in Paris? And this was the same man who grimly complained that Christmas trees were just "a charade" as long as there is still war? 

The Bear understands the same group sent a team to Mecca to give the Ka'aba the same treatment. They have not been heard back from yet.

ADDED: "Fiat Lux" is, of course, "Let there be light." The producers thought it would be clever to make a mockery of God by using it. And, of course, Satan can appear as an angel of light. There is much good discussion in the comments section you will want to read, including of the "abomination of desolation." Jesus spoke of it in Matthew 24:15-16. The Bear doesn't want to go all apocalyptic, but the word "apocalypse" means "unveiling." It is used of the act of unveiling the bride. What do we see behind this veil?

The Bear is reminded of Army Chief Counsel Joseph Welch's famous statement to Senator Joseph McCarthy during the famous "McCarthy Hearings" in 1954. "You've done enough. Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency?" 

Where is the appreciation of holiness? Even the common decency that would tell normal people, "no, this will not do." It does not exist in this pontificate. Instead, they think, what could be holier than God's creation? Corruptible man, and birds, and of four-footed beasts, and of creeping things? What goal could be worthier than saving the planet from global warming?

Finally, the Bear thought of this passage from Scripture as the holy place of St. Peter's was covered with animals.
And they changed the glory of the incorruptible God into the likeness of the image of a corruptible man, and of birds, and of fourfooted beasts, and of creeping things. 24 Wherefore God gave them up to the desires of their heart, unto uncleanness, to dishonour their own bodies among themselves. 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie; and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
(Romans 1:23-25 Douay Rheims)

Indeed, the Prince of This World's hand is almost visible.

Cool! They made it look like St. Peter's basilica is being consumed by flames, with camels in the foreground, for some reason. ISIS must love this. The Bear refrains from a three-letter response beginning with "W" because this is a respectable blog. Prophetic? Deliberate insult? Satanic?

If showrunner Archbishop Rino Fisichella, President of the Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization (you remember: speaking ill of the Pope is the same as a physical attack) had not assured us that this was like the greatest thing ever, the Bear would be appalled and angry.

But since this is all approved, the Bear accepts it as a legitimate display of how monkeys are more important than humans. And destroying St. Peter's.

Could it be that The Prince of This World is signing off on some of this stuff? If so, he needs to back off a bit, because he's blowing his cover. Added below another image.

  5. "One of the Vatican’s top diplomats said the Holy See was studying the possibility of acceding to the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change,...the transition will likely send another strong signal of Pope Francis’ “moral leadership” in ecological issues. ...Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin, and not the Pope, who would sign on behalf of the Holy See."**

    So Mr. Bear, Esq., is this is an attempt at a Doctrinal reach-around?

    If the Holy See, as a sovereign nation*, can accede to the climate change convention (which I am assuming will incorporate COP21) and COP21 calls for controlling women's reproductive autonomy (with already Via Cd. Turkson, per pope F is A-okay, no?) and we in essence, by our faith accede to the Holy See, that's essentially a parallel doctrine, isn't it?

    *despite recent intl lefty-law reviews calling for recession or dissolving that sovereign status, which makes one wonder if there isn't some coercive element in play and the pope isn't as insane (he'd still be wrong to give into coercion) or as inclined to potential heresy as we thought.

  8. What the Bear finds interesting is that they're just rubbing our noses in it now. See? We can do anything we want and there's nothing you can do to stop us. "There is nothing wrong with your television. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are now in control of the transmission. We control the horizontal and the vertical... From now own, we will control all that you see and hear."

    Remember, our enemy is not Pope Francis. Our enemy is the Prince of the World who is tantalized by the prospect of victory. Of course, he's already lost the war, but he can still win the battles, can still ruin souls. The Bear would not dream that Pope Francis would knowingly cooperate with the Prince of This World, but it is the Bear's sober opinion, based on the evidence, that there's a real chance he's on the wrong side unknowingly. His opinions, if taken to their limits, would destroy the Church, leaving in its place an apparatus to give moral legitimacy to The Prince of This World's one-world republic of mercy.

    Just pictures? You can tell a lot about someone by the pictures he likes, the pictures he tolerates, the pictures he is willing to inflict upon his subjects. Here we had the natural world, global warming, overpopulation and pollution. And St. Peter's being consumed by flames. It is demented.

    Are we sure our guys are in charge?

    1. If the pope is on the wrong side "unknowingly", it doesn't say much for his intelligence. But at least that's better than "knowingly" being on the wrong side. Either way, we're in trouble.

  9. P.S. "Fiat Lux" was name of this abomination. Satan himself can transform into an angel of light. Lucifer means "light bearer." That this was clearly about almighty man and his planet, "Fiat Lux" cannot be taken in any godly way. Mockery on top of mockery. You either get it or you don't, like so much of this pontificate. If you're horrified, congratulations. You have sound instincts.

  10. I still hold the pope culpable of all this squalid evil. His attitude is one of hubris. You say the pope is not willingly cooperating with the Prince of the World. The pope himself says his favourite book is "Lord of the World". How do you suppose the pope thinks that the one world order will play out? Something very fishy is going on. You, Bear, seem straining to exonerate Jorge Bergoglio.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Not straining to exonerate. Just not finding clear evidence to boldly accuse the Pope of being a Satanist. I believe a little journalistic prudence is called for, wouldn't you? As for Lord of the World, perhaps he didn't read it all the way to the end and admires the "Lord's" methods and accomplishments, believing him to be the protagonist. It is a very odd pick by him.

    2. P.S. Of course Pope Francis is responsible for all of it. I never suggested otherwise. I've learned, though, no matter what I write, it will not be harsh enough for some. That's okay. I have to write what I'm comfortable with writing, and if people find it wanting, there are plenty of blogs out there.

  11. Bear, I think there is a continuum between being a prideful jerk wanting to impose your will on everything and being a Satanist. I do not want you to call him a Satanist.

    2. Agree with you, Bear. I read, though I cannot independently confirm, that one of the images projected on St. Peter's was that of the Hindu demon, Kali, aka 'the Dark Mother'. Perhaps you or your readers may have some evidence of this? If it indeed happened it would be the gravest of insults to our Blessed Mother on the Feast of Her Immaculate Conception.

    3. Liam, no the image of Kali was projected on the Empire State Bldg. in NYC. What is disturbing is that it's this same group of propagandists the Vatican hired for their slideshow.

  12. Bear,
    What comes to mind is Jesus's words in Matthew 24:15-16 "So when you see the desolating sacrilege spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains;"
    I was away on a business trip but managed to watch this "NatGeo" slide show live on CTV. I was appalled. I got up at 6:00 AM to get to early Mass for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception so I could get back in time for the day's meetings. I took a break in the afternoon to see this, naively expecting beautiful images of the Blessed Virgin Mary celebrating her feast day and the opening of the Year of Mercy. Instead I was subjected to this perversion of a sacred place. This is the tomb of St. Peter! What part of desecration of a church do they not understand? There weren't any religious images for a holy day like this. All I saw was a Discovery Channel slide show with canned jungle sounds. Time to take Jesus's advice and flee to the hills. All that I can think of doing is making acts of reparation for this gross misuse of St. Peter's Basilica, our most sacred Church. May God have mercy on us.

  13. We had foreshadowing of this sacrilegious attitude early on ... remember the rental of the Sistine Chapel to Porsche for a party?

    I saw the photo of the fire and the camels yesterday, and had pretty much the same thought regarding jihad.

    By the way, I have started reading a book called "Did Mohammed Exist?" by Robert Spencer. In the first chapter the author discusses the role of historical research in studying the leaders of religions, and notes the reactions among the various Christian sects and the Church. In discussing their attitudes, he writes that some were more receptive even of excessively skeptical research:

    "Large Protestant churches such as the Episcopalians, Presbyterians, and Methodists ultimately abandoned Christian dogma as it had hitherto been understood, espousing a vague, non-dogmatic Christianity that concentrated on charitable work rather than doctrinal rigor and spirituality."

    You know that moment when everything gels?

    1. I will not read the official American Catholic Bible because the USCCB will not let it be printed without irreligious, modernist, faith-destroying notes accusing the Gospel writers (and the Holy Spirit) of error, etc.

      Yes, we are going the way of the Methodists and Presbyterians. Except we are the real Church and God can fix all of this in a moment. Not that I expect he will; God seldom works that way. I expect a long Babylonian captivity when it will look like the Church is washed up, and entirely coopted by the Prince of This World. That is what we are seeing, you know. Right before our very eyes, in our day.

  14. Below is a link to a petition for the conversion or abdication of 'Pope' Francis. I signed, but, of course we all know that the college of cardinals is pretty much a big evil hydra. If the Bergoglio head is extinguished, another ugly hydra head will likely replace him. Nonetheless, I felt I should sign it.

    While I do not believe Francis is a true pope , he, at least bodily occupies the Chair of Peter. There is, then, the remotest of possibilities that he could convert and abolish Vat 2 and return the Church to tradition.

    1. I have no doubt he is Pope, such as he is, I also signed the petition, but take no position on whether others should do so. It's a gesture, like leftists love to me, a bit of magical thinking that I have accomplished something in the real world. But it raises my information-action ratio. And God knows that I am on record asking an unfit man to step down from the most important office in the world. There are not enough of us, though. Most people are dazzled by his celebrity and "mercy." Otherwise there would be such a cry the bones of St. Peter would shake.

    2. I signed it too Bear. It was incredibly sad to do, and I never in my very wildest dreams would I ever have imagined such a thing as happening in my lifetime, but here we are. I feel sick inside at the paganism being displayed over and over again and no Bishop or Cardinal or group of Cardinals coming to the defense of the Bride of Christ. When the Blessed Mother predicted that the faithful will have much to suffer......she MEANT EVERY WORD.

  16. I agree with you Murray about the 'demonic face'. It's the very first thing my eyes were drawn to in this particular picture, even before the 'fire' below it. A demonic face devouring. Quite unbelievable, and quite profoundly telling. Francis was 'unaware' of all this? REALLY??? Is the Pope Catholic?????

How will anyone ever be able to use that cliche again?

  17. Hi Bear,
    According to Lifesite, "The main financial backer behind the event is the US-led World Bank Group via its Connect4Climate initiative." They didn't list the price tag, though.

    Also per Lifesite, one of the artists whose images were used in the show (and I quote at length):

    "specializes in portraying terrifying images of Greek, Roman and Eastern pagan deities. He said in an interview last month that he turns to these gods and goddesses by means of “psychedelic substances” (mind altering drugs) so that he can portray them accurately. He said the “deities” are “actively involved” in guiding his hand as he makes the work.

    “These [drugs] are tools that grant portals and access into different realms that I still haven’t fully been able to grasp or say that I have uncovered all of their meanings. … They have evolved my ability to … discover new and interesting combinations of energy and matter. Some have … shown me greater nightmares than I could ever depict or wish to imagine ever again.”

    “These spirits and the deities that [the images] represent [in India, Greece, etc.] are actively involved, enrolled, and contributing to humans reinventing the visual vernacular of these beings as time and technology evolves,” he said.

    Jones said that good art connects the viewer to something “mystical.” He said in a 2010 video interview that a good reaction to his art happens when people “throw up, or urinate themselves, or [release] any sort of bodily excrement.”

  19. Bear,

    "But that's what deliberate collaboration with the Prince of This World would be. That is why I must assume, as do you, that there are purely human failings at work."

    Note bene: According to the actual Word of God in Scripture, ignorance or " purely human failings" are no excuse for the crippling, destructive consequences that result from a lack of faith or a spiritual life not firmly rooted in doing Christ's Holy Will.

    "Then Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him, 'God forbid, Lord! No such thing shall ever happen to you.'

    He turned and said to Peter, 'Get behind me, Satan! You are an obstacle to me. You are thinking not as God does, but as human beings do." Matthew 16; 22-23

    It has been clearly demonstrated, in many instances related in the New Testament, that "direct collaboration" is not necessary and does not mitigate a souls culpability or  accountability when acting as an "agent" or "co-conspirator", knowingly or unknowingly with the Prince of this World.

    "... and that they may return to their senses out of the devil’s snare, where they are entrapped by him, for his will." 2 Timothy 2:26

    Let us pray earnestly that the Holy Father comes to his spiritual senses and breaks free of his pride and the Man-centered theology that blinds him from Revealed Truth which, in turn, leads him and other souls astray - regardless of any sincere, humanitarian motives. "The road to Hell is paved with good intentions."

    1. For journalistic purposes, the Bear will continue to maintain a distinction between being a useful idiot to the Lowerarchy and engaging in full-fledged Satanism.

    2. Then I don't understand his point. By the way did you read the latest article about Pope Francis?

      "Pope Francis takes ecumenism and interfaith efforts seriously. Muslims who die trying to break into Europe "are with the Lord now." Well, then, says the Bear, so much for the role of the Catholic Church. Ah, the Pope would reply, the poor who perish on the sea enjoy special grace. They are in Heaven because they were refugees on Earth. But the Church still has much work to do for The Prince of This World."

      Do you think I don't know and haven't said that Pope Francis is an agent for the Prince of This World? Do you think I don't know have haven't said Pope Francis is not Catholic, but merely a leftist humanitarian? Do you think I don't know and haven't said that Pope Francis sees himself as a reformer whose reforms would destroy the Church? Did I not say that the Prince of This World is behind the Holy Chimpanzee Christmas Special?

      The only thing left for me to say is that Pope Francis is a practicing Satanist, i.e. believes he is advancing the cause of Satan. What evidence is there of that? Isn't it sensible to believe he thinks he is one of the good guys, bringing the basic Gospel message back to life that has been suppressed by an oppressive shadow-Church encrusted with rules that separate the people from God? Now, does he have an excuse to believe that, or that his program is legitimate? No. He is as without excuse as the pagans in Paul's letter to the Romans, quoted in the article about the Holy Chimpanzee Christmas Special.

      Delete
    3. Because there is a middle ground: being a naïve (?), confused (?), you fill in the gap, yet not culpable cooperator with the world and being an all out Satanist (as you've described) are not the only options, which I think is the point he was making above.

      "According to the actual Word of God in Scripture, ignorance or " purely human failings" are no excuse for the crippling, destructive consequences that result from a lack of faith or a spiritual life not firmly rooted in doing Christ's Holy Will."

      But you've replied about being a reformer, and thinking he's one of the good guys. The point is, that is not truly possible, it doesn't seem, according to the Word of God. Or, it is possible, but it doesn't imply a lack of culpability.

      I see that you've conceded that point in your most recent comment, but I don't think that's the impression given in the earlier one (useful idiot or Satanist).

      Delete
    4. I think it's silly to imagine that Pope Francis wake up every morning and rubs his hands together and says, "What evil can I accomplish today." I am taking human psychology seriously here. But his good intentions don't make what he's doing right. He has no excuse, and his actions are culpable because his ignorance is willful. How can the POPE not know how to be Catholic? He has willfully chosen to reject the truth out of pride. Pope Francis the Great knows better than anyone, is more compassionate than anyone, and hates fundamentalists more than anyone.
