Something old, something new for you to watch this weekend.  First, a very cool video, unfortunately in French, from JP Sonnen showing the Declaration of the Dogma of the Assumption by Venerable Pope Pius XII in 1950, in (mostly) glorious, living color:

The good old days, indeed. Rome and Saint Peter’s as it looked in the early 50s.  Sede gestoria and all! St. Peters brilliantly lit in candlelight! Unfortunately there was a serpent writhing just under the surface in all these scenes.  Incredible how far and fast the Church fell from this, to the first session of Vatican II.

On a more sour note (maybe watch the first video first, to feel better afterwards?) Johnnie V and Chris Ferrara discuss whether Catholics should fear the reaper Synod:

Second part here if you want to watch it.

More cowbell.

A little Friday humor August 28, 2015

I especially like the first one.  The second is a bit coarse but appeals to my engineering side:

humor (1)

“He sleeps who drinks; he who sleeps does not sin; he who does not sin is a saint; therefore, he who drinks is a saint.”

Too bad telecom necessity has led to the virtual extinction of unicorns.  Only place to get the fiber.

Another shocking Pope Francis scandal, or that dirty Secretariat of State at it again? You decide! August 28, 2015

It is being reported – all, it seems, from the same original article – that Pope Francis sent a letter of thanks to the author of a book designed to indoctrinate children into acceptance of perverse family arrangements.  This is a book found so offensive that it was banned by the mayor of Venice, hardly a rad-trad himself.

So, is this a further revelation of just what kind of literally unimaginable, and irreconcilable, this pontiff holds, or is that dirty Cardinal Sodano forging letters in his name again (if he ever did)?  I copy from St. Corbinian’s Bear, you decide (seriously, I ripped pretty much all this off, but since you never expect Friday PM content, count yourself lucky.  Hopefully I won’t suffer a bear-mauling in retribution for my naked theft.  Click on this link at least four times!):

The Holy Father has sent a letter praising Francesca Pardi for a children’s book in which an egg encounters all sorts of different families, including those headed by gay penguins and lesbian rabbits. The controversial book, which was banned in Venice, touched hearts at the Vatican. According to an article in The Guardian, the letter said:

“His holiness is grateful for the thoughtful gesture and for the feelings which it evoked, hoping for an always more fruitful activity in the service of young generations and the spread of genuine human and Christian values,” wrote Peter B Wells, a senior official at the Vatican secretariat of state. 

[This was also claimed:  “The Vatican said the closing blessing of the private letter was addressed to Pardi and not in support of teachings which went against church doctrine on ‘gender theory’.” However, that is dang near silence giving consent, since the matter of sodomite indoctrination books targeting children has been a huge issue in Italy (hence the action of the Mayor of Venice), and saying things like “fruitful activity in the service of young generations/spread of human values” gives the appearance of support.  Sure it’s boilerplate and sure it’s a bit nebulous, but it’s a dang far cry from what it ought to be: a full-throated denial of the legitimacy of this kind of propaganda and its contradiction of Sacred Catholic belief]

The Bear will say this, after taking a deep breath. Obviously, this was not the doings of Pope Francis. The Vatican Secretariat of State has its own agenda. People are always taking advantage of poor Holy Father, by shoving anti-fracking T-shirts or commiefixes into his hands, or misquoting him, or making up stories about phone calls they supposedly received from him. This is a boilerplate letter, and the Pope certainly never even saw the book.

How does the Bear know this?

Because not even Pope Francis would approve of a book for young, impressionable children promoting homosexuality. Only a flat-out homosexual activist would abuse his position for such a purpose. This would constitute517fLZALn5L._SX318_BO1,204,203,200_ material assistance — through his endorsement — for a book even secular authorities found repulsive…….

Also, if he had, Michael Voris would have done a Vortex about it. Because if there’s one thing Michael Voris hates, it’s bishops who approve of homosexuality. 

The Bear predicts that within 48 hours, we will see a retraction from the Vatican. And thus shall we know that the problem we have at Santa Marta is not a horror beyond all imagining or toleration.

Oh, I needed that, Bear.  Thanks for relieving the tension.

Figure it out, people.  It’s called irony.
