A few weeks ago, the Catholic Identity Conference was held in Pennsylvania. It was chaired by Michael Matt of the Remnant Underground. They are all Catholics who are faithful to Church teaching and tradition. Archbishop Vigano had prepared a presentation to be given to the attendees; he could not come himself for he is still in danger.
Vigano’s presentation was not given. I’m not sure of the reason, and I frankly don’t care. The questions that the archbishop put forth are questions that we Catholics must face. Those questions focus on the legitimacy, or lack thereof, of Bergoglio’s occupation of Peter’s Chair. I think that many good people don’t want to face the fact that the evil inside the church hierarchy is so prevalent as to have insinuated in the visible head of the Church. Perhaps they fear the label “sedevacantist”. Perhaps they just want to stay in the good graces of local hierarchy and friends. Whatever the reasons, they must be cast aside and these questions must be addressed.
Ann Barnhardt has the video of Vigano giving his talk. For those who’d rather read it, here it is. Consider what he is saying. The time for kicking the can down the road is long past – if it ever existed at all. LifeSiteNews posted an article about the Saint Gallen mafia and how they might have tampered with the 2013 papal election. They may have tried that with the 2005 election, but were unsuccessful.
For the record, I now believe that there are reasons to doubt the legitimacy of the 2013 papal election. Frankly, I don’t believe the resignation of Pope Benedict was done validly, so that is another reason why the 2013 election is dubious. I have questions about these. I don’t have answers, I cannot propose solutions, but that does not preclude me from voicing reservations.
What should be obvious to all is that evil is having its way with Bergoglio. That has been painfully apparent for several years now. If you aren’t awake and praying your Rosaries, why not?
