George Weigel Endorses Abraham Heschel's Hermetic/Kabbalistic Gnosis

"Go to any bookstore in North America today and you'll likely find a large section on "spirituality," in which there are large numbers of books about "our search for God."

"But there is wisdom in the title the late, great Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel gave to one of his books: God in Search of Man. Biblical religion - faith in the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Jesus - is not about "spirituality," and it's not about our search for God. The God of the Bible comes to search for us, and asks us to take the same path through history that he is taking."
(George Weigel, April 15, 2010)

Am I reading unintended Hermeticism into Heschel? I think he made himself very clear:
"This outlook provides the foundation for the study of the teachings of the Kabbalah. In many places in the Zohar you will find the statement that the Holy and Blessed one created this world on the model of the world above: 'Everything that exists above is replicated below'(Zohar Pekudei 221a). In the opinion of the sages, the people brought with them from Babylonia the names of the angels. But we have not yet been able to discover the source of the [non-biblical] concept of the parallelism of the world above and the world below." (Abraham Joshua Heschel, Gordon Tucker, Heavenly Torah: as refracted through the generations, p.266)

NY Archbishop Dolan: "The Holocaust" "Demands" "Memory," "To Forget is Heretical"

When is the last time you heard a modern prelate mention the term, heresy, in its proper context, in relation to the perennial teachings of the Church?

In a recent ceremony commemorating Pope Benedict's visit to a synagogue during his U.S. visit in 2008, Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York spoke on the importance of Catholic-Jewish relations, stressing that the two must focus on their commonality and work together to preserve the “memory” of the faith.

Archbishop Dolan gave his remarks at the unveiling of a commemorative plaque at Park East Synagogue in New York City on April 22 ...

“Both of our traditions reverence memory,” he asserted. “'To forget' is disastrous, dangerous, and heretical. We both worry about an amnesia that seems a part of today’s existence, to live only for the now, unconscious of our roots, our foundations.”

“It is my hope that in the many years God may give me as Archbishop of New York, our Catholic-Jewish dialogue may be marked by a practice of 'memory' which never fails to hold us mutually accountable to the honesty and transparency demanded by the tragedy of the Holocaust, but also to a 'mutuality' of concern for each other which places our friendship first, and our grievances second. Our dialogue must never be reduced to one of exchanged grievances.” ("Archbishop Dolan: Catholics and Jews must work to preserve 'memory' of faith," Catholic News Agency, Apr 27, 2010)

In fact, "our dialogue" is an arrangement in which one side "remembers" and expresses its grievances for which it offers no forgiveness while the other makes unending concessions from which even core beliefs are not spared. This is not dialogue and it's not friendship. It's enslavement.

Will traditionalists stand against the enslaving modernist dogma of Holocaustolatry which has been enshrined in the Catholic Church?

Senator Chuck "Shomer Yisrael" must be Replaced by a Senator who will "Shomer" the U.S.

“My name as you know comes from a Hebrew word. It comes from the word shomer, which means guardian ... and I believe Hashem, actually, gave me the name as one of my roles that is very important in the United States Senate, to be a shomer for Israel, and I will continue to be that with every bone in my body.” (US Senator Charles Schumer interviewed by Nachum Segal, Apr 22, 2010)
This is a running theme of Chuck Schumer. He made the same statement in a Florida synagogue during the 2008 presidential campaign among many others that should concern American citizens:



Last year we briefly touched on the meaning of the kabbalistic concept of "Shomer Yisrael" which is one of the names of the strange god of Judaism, Metatron, who the rabbis teach is the "Guardian of Israel," who protects "Israel" from "Esau" (non-"Jews," Christians) whose guardian is Satan or "Samael" according to the rabbis (cf. Eisenmenger, The Traditions of the Jews).

Chuck Schumer's "Shomer" lore should greatly concern the non-Judaic majority that a U.S. senator is obligated to represent. This man is seriously compromised by extreme tribal ideology, mysticism and attachments to a foreign nation hostile to our own.

Vatican II Peritus: Because of "The Holocaust," Church Must Reinterpret Gospel

Fr. Gregory Baum, along with Frs. Ratzinger, De Lubac, Schillebeecks and Küng, was a Peritus (theological expert; advisor) at the Vatican II Council. The modernist theology of Auschwitz that he preaches is at least as pernicious as any other modernist error devastating the Church. Who will stand against it?

"... if the Church wants to clear itself of the anti-Jewish trends built into its teaching, a few marginal correctives won’t do. It must examine the very center of its proclamation and reinterpret the meaning of the gospel for our times ... It was not until the holocaust of six million Jewish victims that some Christian theologians have been willing to face this question in a radical way ... Auschwitz has a message that must be heard: it reveals an illness operative not on the margin of our civilization but at the heart of it, in the very best that we have inherited ... It summons us to face up to the negative side of our religious and cultural heritage." (Gregory Baum, ‘Introduction’, in Rosemary Ruether, Faith and Fratricide: The Theological Roots of Anti-Semitism, p.7)

Bishop Slattery Takes Place of Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos at D.C. Pontifical Latin Mass

Bishop Slattery, like Pope Benedict XVI, is hailed by neotraditionalists as a champion of tradition because he says the Novus Ordo Mass ad orientem. Can they be unaware of Bishop Slattery's Judaizing liturgical alchemy? Or is it that they don't care?

"There's nothing in Catholic teaching or law that would prevent a group from having a seder meal to teach the faithful the origins of our own Mass, which comes from the seder." (Bishop Edward J. Slattery)


In fact, the Haggadah, the liturgy used at seders, began to be formulated in the Talmudic Era, centuries after Christ's Last Supper. The Haggadah as it exists today--as it is now celebrated in Catholic parishes around the world--dates only to the 13th century A.D. The traditional Mass does not "come from the seder," although it is accurate to say that parts of the Novus Ordo Mass of 1969 do. I doubt that Bishop Slattery wants this distinction to be known. As we have seen from other modern prelates of high position, including the Pope, they want Catholics to believe that rabbinic tradition is an authentic continuation of the religion of the faithful Israelites of the Bible and for Catholics to involve themselves in these traditions. There could be no worse deception than this, as Pope Innocent IV observed, through the rabbis' traditions, they render souls utterly alien from the law and the prophets, a fact which was later documented so thoroughly by Johannes Eisenmenger in his masterwork, Entdecktes Judenthum that no defense, other than censorship and ad hominem, has even been attempted against it.

For this rabbi enabler to be offering a traditional Latin Mass in the place of the sex predator enabler, Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos, is no less a scandal. Protect your children, body and soul, from these treacherous men.

Rabbi-Mason Receives Honorary Doctorate from Australian Catholic University

The Australian Catholic University today conferred a major award on Rabbi Raymond Apple, the former spiritual leader of Sydney’s Great Synagogue [and Past Grand Chaplain of the United Grand Lodge of New South Wales].

Especially in English-speaking countries, [Freemasonry] has always had a high proportion of eminent Jewish members, including leading rabbis. Among present day Australian rabbis, high masonic office is held by Rabbi Shalom Coleman of Perth, Rabbi Chaim Gutnick of Melbourne and myself in Sydney. Other rabbis and ministers are past masters of their lodges. ("Freemasonry and Judaism are Compatible," Bro.

Cardinal Castrillion Hoyos Says John Paul II Approved His Letter Encouraging Shielding of Sex Predators

This is a follow up to Ecclesia Dei Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos Lauded Sheilding of Admitted Sex Predator from Justice.

Cardinal: Pope John Paul II approved letter on shielding priest abuser

The Documentary Record: Bishops and Pope Paul VI Were Warned

Following up on the last blog posting, Bishops and Popes Ignored Warnings of Sex Predator Priests, here are documents in which Fr. Gerald Fitzgerald, in his capacity as founder of the Servants of the Paraclete, an order for rehabilitation of alcoholic and pedophile priests, warns numerous bishops and Pope Paul VI of his findings that pedophile priests were not capable of rehabilitation; that if they were returned to parishes they would almost certainly continue sexually abusing children, and his recommendation that they should be laicized and ostracized.

The claim "we didn't know" is a lie. They've known since at least the early 1950's.

Bishops and Popes Ignored Warnings of Sex Predator Priests

Bishops were warned of abusive priests

Fr. Gerald Fitzgerald, founder of the Servants of the Paracletes, an order established in 1947 to deal with problem priests, wrote regularly to bishops in the United States and to Vatican officials, including the pope, of his [well informed] opinion that many sexual abusers in the priesthood [could not be rehabilitated and] should be laicized immediately.

An Island for Abusive Priests

Ecclesia Dei Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos Lauded Sheilding of Admitted Sex Predator from Justice

Cardinal Hoyos is a rabbi in cardinal's clothing. Why do I say this? Because he attempts to hang his talmudic casuistry from St. Paul, according to which it's virtuous for a bishop to shield an admitted sex predator priest from the punishment he deserves. The real basis for his pharisaic anti-morality is the Talmud of Babylon:

Israel is not to be accused of pederasty. (Babylonian Talmud, Kiddushin 82a)

Would you care to join the neotraditionalists in assisting at a Latin Mass offered by this villain in Washington D.C. next week? I'm certain that the vestments and rubrics will be flawless. And while there's no guarantee that your children will be safe there, you can be fully assured that the liturgy and sermon will be free of any offenses to the tender sensibilities of "our brothers, the sons of Abraham."

Cardinal hailed bishop for hiding predator priest: report

(Reuters) - A Vatican cardinal in charge of clergy around the world congratulated a French bishop in a 2001 letter for not denouncing a sexually abusive priest to the police, according to a French website on Thursday.

The letter posted by Golias, a critical lay Roman Catholic magazine based in Lyon, is the most explicit of a wave of recently published internal church documents in showing past Vatican encouragement to cover up sexual abuse by priests.

In the letter dated Sept 8, 2001, Cardinal Dario Castrillon Hoyos backed French Bishop Pierre Pican's decision not to denounce a priest who was later sentenced to 18 years in jail for repeated rape of a boy and sexual assaults on 10 others.

Under fire in recent weeks for its secretive handling of abuse cases, the Vatican has insisted the fact that other published documents did not explicitly instruct bishops to inform police of abuse did not prove it told them to hide it.

Vatican spokesman Rev. Federico Lombardi did not dispute the letter's content but said it confirmed "how opportune it was to centralize treatment of cases of sexual abuse of minors by clerics under the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith."

The then Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict, instructed Catholic bishops around the world on May 18, 2001 to report all case of clerical sexual abuse of minors to the Congregation, the top Vatican doctrinal office that he headed.

Pican, who received a suspended three-month jail sentence for not denouncing sexual abuse of minors, admitted in court he had kept Rev. Rene Bissey in parish work despite the fact the priest had privately admitted committing pedophile acts.

The case shocked France and prompted its bishops to declare that all abuse cases must be reported to civil authorities.

"I congratulate you for not denouncing a priest to the civil administration," Castrillon Hoyos said. "You have acted well and I am pleased to have a colleague in the episcopate who, in the eyes of history and of all other bishops in the world, preferred prison to denouncing his son and priest."

BISHOPS NOT REQUIRED TO INFORM POLICE

In it, the cardinal said relations between bishops and priests were not simply professional but had "very special links of spiritual paternity." Bishops therefore had no obligation to testify against "a direct relative," he stated.

The letter cited Vatican documents and an epistle of Saint Paul to bolster its argument about special bishop-priest links.

"To encourage brothers in the episcopate in this delicate domain, this Congregation will send copies of this letter to all bishops' conferences," Castrillon Hoyos wrote.


A staunch conservative from Colombia, the cardinal headed the Vatican department for priests from 1996 to 2006. From 2000 to 2009, he also ran a commission dealing with traditionalist rebels who broke from Rome in 1988 and were excommunicated.

He conducted the talks that led to the January 2009 decision to readmit the four banned bishops of the Society of Saint Pius X to the Church, which caused an uproar when it emerged that one of them, Richard Williamson, had denied the Holocaust.

The controversy was highly embarrassing to Pope Benedict, who said he did not know about Williamson's views, even though they could easily be found on the internet.

Two months after the incident, Benedict folded Castrillon Hoyos's commission into the Congregation and the cardinal retired.

On Thursday the pope said the church had to do penance for its sins, in a rare public reference to the pedophilia scandal.

In Light of Recent Events ...

Israel is not to be accused of pederasty. (Babylonian Talmud, Kiddushin 82a)

It's worth recalling Ratzinger's talmudic attitude vis a vis investigation into the Church's horrific sex predator problem by am haaretz:

In 2002 Cardinal Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI, slaps ABC reporter Brian Ross when asked about pederast founder of the Legionaries "of Christ" Marcial Maciel


It seems, now that "the brothers in the faith" have pretty much all they need from the Vatican, there's little left to bargain with for media protection. I doubt Benedict's effeminate hand slaps can stem the outrage he deserves to face now.

I propose that "Church militant" "traditionalists" who heed the call to "defend the 'holy father'" against "his attackers" ask themselves a simple question: if "the holy father" is able to change ancient Catholic tradition and teaching to suit "the brothers in the faith" in a matter of weeks and months, then why, even after decades pass, is it not possible to protect the souls of Catholic children from sex predators in "the holy father's" employ?

On the Contrary: Bishop Williamson's society will offer no public prayers for him

The SSPX leadership has led a "rosary crusade" campaign to pray millions of rosaries for the conversion of a nation more Christian than the nations in which the SSPX rosary crusaders reside, but they will not campaign for prayers for a brother bishop under attack by the synagogue.
