Accusations of Idolatry in Catholic practice
Nearly 30 years ago when I was in seminary I used to engage in apologetic discussions with “Bible Christian” acquaintances. Many of our disagreements proved to be based on misunderstandings and were resolved. Sometimes the disagreements were more serious but we could “agree to disagree” (for example on the doctrine of the Real Presence). In the end both “sides” found the other to be logical and reasonable but having different starting points (premises).
One of the weird things I would encounter with these folks is they would sometimes have been poisoned with the falsehoods of the likes of Jack Chick-
deliberate misrepresentations of Catholic doctrine to fool the less educated (Catholics worship Mary, believe in a “wafer god” etc. etc.).
Friends, not a single one of those falsehoods and insults can match what is going on in Rome today. The greatest enemies of the Church Our Lord founded are within our very gates.
As Benedict XVI said “In the end God wins” and He already has the Victory. Do not despair or be discouraged, but do not remain asleep or indifferent to the sacrilege and blasphemy in your midst.
The idolatry I am about to describe is a “fruit” not a seed. In other words, it is as a result of the gradual abandonment of the True Catholic Faith on a trajectory toward a syncretist one world religion of brotherhood. One that has man (Christian humanism) at its center not that of God- the True Triune God (The “nuReligion” spreads the nonsense and lie of other religions sharing the worship of the same God/god. We share our Creator but those who deny the Triune God, the Incarnation and the decent of the Holy Spirit DO NOT know Him).
The Seriousness of Idolatry
The Catholic Encyclopedia describes idolatry as “…the greatest of mortal sins. For it is, by definition, an inroad on God’s sovereignty over the world, an attempt on His Divine majesty, a rebellious setting up of a creature on the throne that belongs to Him alone. Even the simulation of idolatry, in order to escape death during persecution, is a mortal sin, because of the pernicious falsehood it involves and the scandal it causes.”
This idolatry did not come from “out of the blue” but as a result of the Church’s reorientation from God to man via aggiornamento (surrender/compromise to the “wisdom” of the world (“Christian” humanism). In this model we seek “inclusion” and “unity” as more important that the Truth.
The idolatry of these days is the result of a prolonged process that inevitably led to replacing God with things made by man. The matter of Pachamama is an accurate x-ray of the situation in the Church at this dramatic moment. Idolatry does not suddenly happen like lightning out of the blue. It is preceded by a prolonged process that begins with the loss of faith, with a silent and pragmatic atheism that grows like a larva and takes the form of an almost general apostasy. We have become atheists without realizing it while believing we are representing the interests of the Gospel in an ever-changing world.Fr. Serafino M. Lanzetta at Lifesite News
The idolatrous worship of Pachamama and the concurrent display of the demon Moloch are events that would shock even many “liberal” Catholics who nonetheless seek to love Our Lord Jesus.
Pachamama is the Andean deity of “Mother Earth”/ a fertility goddess. She accepts sacrifice of various fruits of the earth as well as llama embryos and human children. She would have been one of the false gods that Christian missionaries would have exhorted the people to abandon for the sake of their souls.
Far from being a dead religion, prominent figures such as the former president of Bolivia Evo Morales is a worshiper of Pachamama.
Veneration in Rome
On October 4th, 2019 in the presence of Pope Francis Bergoglio and other prelates the false goddess/demon Pachamama was venerated and/or worshiped. This news came almost beyond the capacity for we Catholics to absorb or believe.
A petition of protest was written and as a summary I have reproduced their charges here:
- “On October 4, Pope Francis attended an act of idolatrous worship of the pagan goddess Pachamama.
- “He allowed this worship to take place in the Vatican Gardens, thus desecrating the vicinity of the graves of the martyrs and of the church of the Apostle Peter.
- “He participated in this act of idolatrous worship by blessing a wooden image of Pachamama.
- “On October 7, the idol of Pachamama was placed in front of the main altar at St. Peter’s and then carried in procession to the Synod Hall. Pope Francis said prayers in a ceremony involving this image and then joined in this procession.
- “When wooden images of this pagan deity were removed from the church of Santa Maria in Transpontina, where they had been sacrilegiously placed, and thrown into the Tiber by Catholics outraged by this profanation of the church, Pope Francis, on October 25, apologized for their removal and another wooden image of Pachamama was returned to the church. Thus, a new profanation was initiated.
- “On October 27, in the closing Mass for the synod, he accepted a bowl used in the idolatrous worship of Pachamama and placed it on the altar.”
Bizarro: The Breast Feeding of Weasels/swine
Concurrent to this idolatry nonsense was a display seeking to show how “we are all connected”, but which is activity that mocks the dignity of humanity and reality of the Incarnation.
Fallout from the event
A young Catholic named Alexander Tschugguel of Vienna, Austria threw the statues into the Tiber River. Pope Francis Bergolio condemned this act and confirms the images were of the demon Pachamama.
Since these horrible events occurred in the context of the Amazonian Synod some of the attending bishops reportedly announced they would refuse to attend the closing Mass if Pachamama was present.
Some traditional groups remained silent. The Society of St. Pius X correctly condemned the horror. Some see in these events apocalyptic signs.
Some have linked the event to the abomination of desolation spoken of in the book of Daniel.
Understandably many in the Catholic world were upset about these reports, including Fr. Mitch Pacwa, SJ of EWTN/
Of particular concern is the usual political weaselry; when questioned by the Catholic media the Vatican representative present lied. They didn’t fool anyone who didn’t want to be fooled.
Some priests have already offered Masses and prayers of reparation. To date six cardinals and bishops have condemned the Pachamama event.
Moloch was the god of the Phoenician and Carthaginian religions who also demanded child sacrifice. A statue of Moloch was displayed on grounds separate from the Vatican but on land controlled by the Vatican concurrent to the Pachamama idolatry. On the very spot Christians were martyred for their Faith.
Coincidence or Direct Link?
You may have noted the coincidence that child sacrifice figures prominently but did you know that the John Paul II Academy of Life was gutted of its life appointed members (appointed via JPII and Benedict XVI) and replaced with a number of characters opposed to the teaching of the Church.
Abortion is the Secular West offering of Child Sacrifice
It is saddening that the institutional church is attempting a “redefinition” of Pro-Life as they are trying to spin their trajectory towards syncretism and one-world religion based on fraternity and cultural Marxism, rather than on a central uncompromising, un-accommodating focus on the ONE True Triune God, a focus on Our True Lord and King: Jesus Christ.
Why do many bishops and priests ignore the Faith of their Christian ancestors and the people whom they shepherd?
Link to Our Lady of Akita?
As many of our readers know. Our Lady of Akita is a Church approved Marian apparition.
It has been reported that the messenger of Akita, St Agnes Sasagawa who has been silent from public life, I believe since 1976, spoke out on the very same day the Amazon synod opened.
The message to her was:
“Put on sackcloth and pray a Rosary for repentance every day.”
