THE TRUTH ABOUT MEĐUGORJE

THE BEST-OILED “MARIAN APPARITION FACTORY”
IN CATHOLIC HISTORY!

No matter who you are, one of the following observations is certain to offend you: some keyword will trigger you. This utilitarian blog post is a specialized tool intended as a fact-based discernment aid and pastoral guide providing a comprehensive look at the known and diligently contextualized facts of Međugorje as they relate to one another and to the Church. Hence you are welcome to use it or not use this again purely informational post, but be blessed whatever you do.

Please, aside from your thoughts on Međugorje, join me in this heartfelt prayer before and after reading.

INCOMPATIBLE WITH ROMAN CATHOLIC TEACHING?
“Gospa’s” pattern of contradicting Gospel, Creed and other infallible Dogmas, paired with its overall gnostic tone, bears all the markings of Illuimined Freemasonry, specifically on the topics of Jesus, Mary, the Church and Hell

If you don’t read any farther, at least be aware of the following statements selected from the alleged apparition-locutions (the communications professionals prefer the looser terms visions and messages) at Međugorje. You’ll surely find all of them to be undeniably blasphemous and otherwise heretical, statements with whose originator no faithful Catholic has any business consorting, regardless of their dazzling “fruits” (which should at any rate include, probably under the cons column, that this blogger had to explain the ABCs of Catholic Dogma to people who call themselves catechized adults), or big-name enthusiasts:

  • HELL
    Međugorje trivializes eternal afterlife punishments!

    in terms of the torments of hell, do they vary from soul to soul and do they continue unabated for eternity rather than say regress toward a limbonic mean?
  • Međugorje says no:
    “All sufferings in hell are equal” (“Our Lady” of Međugorje);
    “The souls in hell eventually become comfortable” (“Our Lady” of Međugorje**).
  • The Church (which is unilaterally skeptical of all but the earliest locutions) says yes:
    “[I]t shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment, than for [Corozain and Bethsaida]” (Jesus of Nazareth in Matthew 11:22b and again in Luke 10:14b [D–R]);
    “The chief punishment of hell is eternal separation from God, in whom alone man can possess the life and happiness for which he was created and for which he longs” (Catechism of the Catholic Church 1035b).
  • JESUS
    Međugorje
    trivializes Our Lord Jesus Christ who is fully divine!
    Is Jesus of Nazareth completely God and as such totally united to the Father?
  • Međugorje says no:
    “Jesus had a great desire for God” (“Our Lady” of Međugorje, Međugorjexplaining™◄29► how Jesus was able to pray all night long).
  • The Church says yes:
    Jesus is “Consubstantial with the Father” and as such is fully God in himself and with nothing beyond himself to in any sense desire, yearn for or seek (Nicene [i.e. Nicæno-Constantinopolitan] Creed, literally all Christians).
  • MARY
    Međugorje
    trivializes the Blessed Virgin Mary who is absolutely essential to our salvation!
    (even as they take “her” word over the orders of their own bishop ironically)
    Is the Blessed Virgin Mary undividedly and unwaveringly surrendered to God and as such lacking nothing in terms of holiness, power or importance to God’s plan? and Does the Blessed Virgin Mary always affirm the authority of the divinely established Catholic hierarchy over all merely human aims?
  • Međugorje says no:
    “I am not the disposer of all graces” or “I do not dispose of all graces”;
    “Forgive us our trespasses” (in the context of praying the Our Father which Our Lady of Fátima [approved and yet still non-binding] does not say);
    “I will help you as much as I can (“Our Lady” of Međugorje, who the apparitionaries have said even physically becomes darkly stained supposedly from the sins of the people touching her garments and who, unlike Our Lady of Fátima, prays “forgive us our trespasses”).
  • The Church says yes:
    “By the grace of God Mary remained free of every personal sin her whole life long. ‘Let it be done to me according to your word…’” (Catechism of the Catholic Church 493b);
    “[T]he Blessed Virgin [Mary] is invoked by the Church under the titles of Advocate[ss] [Intercessress], Auxiliatrix [Helpress], Adjutrix [Benefactress], and Mediatrix (Lumen Gentium 62b, italics added. These classic Marian titles are the feminine form of Advocate, Intercessor, Auxiliator, Helper, Adjutor, Benefactor and Mediator respectively).
  • CHURCH
    Međugorje trivializes the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church and its ordained hierarchy, and the gospel, credal, dogmatic and orthodox Faith which (again together with Jesus and Mary) are absolutely 100% essential for obtaining salvation!
    Are the Church and the Faith required to mediate God’s work with humans?
  • Međugorje says no:
    “All religions are equal before God”;
    “All religions are dear to me and my Son…The Muslims and the Orthodox, like the Catholics, are equal before my Son and before me: for you are all my children”;
    GOD DIRECTS ALL DENOMINATIONS AS A KING DIRECTS HIS SUBJECTS THROUGH THE MEDIUM OF HIS MINISTERS;
    “You cannot be a Christian without respecting others be they Muslims or Orthodox. In God there are no religions nor divisions”;
    “The Christians who come to church without preparation, without communion, without an act of thanksgiving after communion, it would be better if they didn’t come”;
    The holiest woman in the village is a Muslim woman named [Koskin-Mehmed] “Pasha” whom the tween- and teen-aged “children” are counseled to imitate for her humility and sincerity of faith (?);
    Bishops and even sometimes religious superiors need not be obeyed by the Franciscan priests who vowed obedience to them, but those same disobedient friars are to be obeyed (“Our Lady” of Međugorje, caps added).
  • The Church says yes:
    “Outside the Church there is NO salvation” (Catechism of the Catholic Church 845b, caps added);
    “You MUST believe in the Trinity to save your soul” (Our Lady of Fátima, caps added);
    “The Sunday celebration of the Lord’s Day and his Eucharist is at the heart of the Church’s life. ‘Sunday is the day on which the paschal mystery is celebrated in light of the apostolic tradition and is to be observed as the foremost holy day of obligation in the universal Church’” (Catechism of the Catholic Church 2177). What is perhaps a more serious sin than truancy, if such a thing were possible, is knowingly attending Mass presided over by a disobedient priest. (!) Either way, religious indifferentism, which Međugorje is constantly spouting, since it implicitly condones all heresies, is unavoidably also itself just a great big load of heresy.

So for the reasons mentioned above, Međugorje in its entirety must never, can never and will never enjoy Rome’s approval. In lieu of this, the nominal and edifying process would unfold in the following manner: the purported apparitionary-locutionists, following a conditional exorcism if it is determined that there is some possibility that the alleged apparition-locutions could be infernally authentic rather than merely human in their source, will need to continue to completion the process of handing over to their bishops as well as to their pope ALL diaries and other chronicles, recanting ALL errors, repenting of ALL sin and scandal, and lastly naming ALL of their ringleaders, present as well as past. Quite aside from its unconditional necessity, these steps will most likely have the added benefit that they will result in further salutary excommunications as they already have in the case of Tomislav Vlašić. Once all of that has been accomplished, the opportunity presents itself that as many as comply will again be on the road to achieving a state in which heaven, much less ecclesial divine servanthood status, is on the radar screen for these so-called “children” who to be clear at no time even remotely preceding the age of reason claimed any apparitions, much less locutions. Much the same would be required of any friars, laypersons, and ranking members of the Catholic hierarchy who, knowingly or unknowingly, have abused their respective charisms to sow heresy far and wide. The agenda of the flesh has obviously had its day in the sun and its fun at the expsense of Christ’s bride. But done is done, and we must, can and by God’s grace will get back on the same page of our missals with heaven lest we be shams, frauds and devils in the eyes of man as many already are in the eyes of our one true God who looks primarily at the heart and at the love therein. The window for hopping off that fence is fast closing. (For more metaphors, read the parables, read the Gospel: it’s all there, nothing new under the sun when it comes to those identifiers that reliably signal and track iniquity.) God is not mocked, these tacky 1970s churchman parlor tricks are in their golden years, and it is once again “time for the Lord to act”!

The following video is in Portuguese (the language of Fátima), but I post it due to its clarity and light-heartedness:

“A joyful mind maketh age flourishing: a sorrowful spirit drieth up the bones” (Proverbs 17:22, D–R)

Blogger’s comments: Whoever or whatever this Međugorje messenger is, we can’t help agreeing that it has good reason to beg God the Father of mercies for forgiveness since, if nothing else, it is teaching heresies (as well as disobedience as we’ll see) to tween- and teen-aged “children”—in all apparent probability sending them barreling down the road to hell—while impersonating her who gave birth to God the Son! In a twisted way, this again formally and manifestly heretical attempts at softening Catholic Dogma may signal the rogue Franciscans’ twisted sense of balance, their misguided attempt at atoning for the frankly unimaginably petty and cold-blooded acts of sectarian as well as racist violence by their elder brothers (certainly their very religious superiors!) during WWII. Sloppy exorcisms that end by attracting more demons (Cf. Matthew 12:43–45 or Luke 11:24–26)?

According to actual 🤨 Catholic Church teaching (and directly contrary to the Pope Urban VIII misquote that is discussed toward the bottom of this post—one of several apparent misquotes so mindlessly spread by Medge-heads), according to actual 🤨 Catholic Church teaching, if you don’t believe in Fátima you are still equally eligible for heaven, but if you believe in Međugorje then you can in no wise be eligible for heaven, again always assuming that actual 🤨 Church teaching means anything. Hence when you’re an actual 🤨 Catholic you hold fast to the knowledge that it is always better to err on the side of caution rather than hysteria. People who follow Međugorje are either knowingly causing scandal or have lost their minds, and the first step to communication is deciding which type of person you are dealing with, so that you can apply either public denunciation or merely good old-fashioned tough love to each case.

Okay, now you’ve read the obligatory parts of this article. The rest is bonus features. Even if you do intend on reading on, I ask: if you learned anything that you think could be potentially soul-saving, that you pause right now and share this article with your friends, family, fellow-parishioners and fellow–prayer group members. Thank you.

A discussion that’s much calmer than the blog post that follows!

Let’s start with some social context. In understanding how this insulting travesty ever got off the ground, one has got to come to terms with the fact that Croats today (essentially the hillbillies of the Slavs) are largely cultural “Catholics” and that in addition the friars who tightly supervise the purported apparitionaries-locutionists are unscrupulous to say nothing of lawless opportunists and as such unequivocally not good shepherds. These alleged apparition-locutions, which are openly planned through human scheduling and therefore more like séances than what one normally terms “apparitions”, are tightly controlled by the local misrepresentatives of the Franciscan Order as we will be seeing, and so nowhere in the process is there concern for orthodoxy, which of course elegantly sums up the first section of this post. Indeed, when taken together, the obvious agenda behind these openly anti-Evangelical “apparition-locutions” would seem to be one of blunting or softening the more challenging Church teachings and therefore also the blunting or softening of Rome’s apostolic authority. Now in defense of Gospa devotees (hereafter Medgeheads) all of this may very well register as acceptable to the undiscerming ear when under the trance of disinhibiting “Charismatic Renewal” techniques (plus what drugs?), and thus the goal of these mesmeric methods comes into view. The operative psychology here is very much that of Islam or Mormonism◄01► (if you were to picture a triumphalistic fantasy-RPG designed for the Religious Right of the Baby Boom generation). All of this shows the Međugorje message to be a canny pivot for the friars given that Islam, as a cursory study will show, lacks both the administrative centrality and the theology of exclusivity that Catholicism teaches, precisely what Međugorje seems intent on destroying in the minds of the faithful.

…which only serves to make these “easy, breezy, escapist quotes” from high-caliber Catholic clerics that much more alarming…

1
Servant of God Hans Urs von Balthasar said:
“Everything concerning Međugorje is authentic from a Catholic point of view.”

Balthasar is a major influence on Bishop Robert Barron, a man who is to Fulton Sheen everything that Međugorje is to Fátima, i.e. an imitation that the New World Order can more easily manipulate.

2
Warsaw Archbishop Henryk Hoser, S.A.C. (i.e. Society of the Catholic Apostolate) said:
“[Apart from the many charities {proved fraudulent fronts for the Croat military fund, see below}], what confirms the authenticity of the place [what does that phrase even mean?] is the great effort that is being made at the level of Christian formation*.

Archbishop Hoser was Pope Francis’s Holy See Special Envoy to, then Apostolic Visitor to, Međugorje until his passing which we’re told was due to COVID-19. Back in 2013 Hoser was intensely criticised when he refused to remove a priest from active duty who was convicted of molesting two altar boys. On the other hand, Hoser removed a priest called Wojciech Lemanski, who had used his pulpit to continually and vocally condemn Poland’s anti-Semitic tendencies and the Church’s lenient treatment of clerics accused of sexual abuse. (!) 😒

3
René Laurentin—French priest, “Mariologist” and “spirit of Vatican II” extremist—ascribed the following to Međugorje:
“A post-conciliar style”;
“openness and topicality“;
“the apparitions of Međugorje do not have a retro style”;
“they are in keeping with post-conciliar pastoral theology”;
“the Gospa encourages openness and ecumenism.”

Now here finally is something we can all agree on: Međugorje is all about shoving Catholics in a modern, streamlined and secular direction by completely contradicting all other Marian apparitions! Rev. Laurentin, addressing the nagging lack of (supernatural) signs, which is bad enough even before you consider that it disproves purported apparitionary Ivan Dragičević’s glowing prophecy, granted only that Ivan “had proceeded imprudently”. Can we honestly ask for greater obviousness about what is really happening here? Would any of us presume to pray for more horribly clear focus, not to mention credence, in favor of that label beloved by tradition-oriented Catholics of a KGB-engineered “Spirit of Vatican II” cult***? We have to chuckle at the irony that this cult (if cult it be) had to resort to reproducing three things they hate most vehemently (Mary, pilgrimages and fasts) in order to continue performing cardio-pulmonary resuscitation on the already fetid corpse that is their at best humanly inspired vision of the Church and keep pushing the central lie of universalism, Satan’s counterfeit of Catholicism. Turns out they’re fine with Mary as long as she isn’t crushing the serpent and with pilgrimages provided they ooze with the prosperity anti-gospel of Joel Osteen! And so what initially appears “revealed”—and later just “refreshingly apolitical”—soon takes on a considerably more prosaic New World Order aspect when further scrutinized.

And much more about the moral character of the actors involved coming up…

AND WHAT OF FÁTIMA?
Is there any “Fátima logic” that leaves room for another apparition-locution now?

Definitely not, the reason being that the mission of Fátima (whose words have consistently come true) is not yet completed. The mission of Fátima is not yet completed. In the person of Pope Francis the Holy See, winking at Međugorje, has deteriorated to the point of open idolatry. The show of consecrating Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary was not done according to Our Lady of Fatima’s demands. Therefore, Međugorje (whose words are frequently proven false as well as all other types of spiritually ruinous and which conspicuously never once refers to Fátima anyways) is simply there to distract the attention of all who may be misdirected. Međugorje is the devil’s mockery of Fátima, complete with ten new anti-secrets, although only the first three are consistent across all purported apparitionaries, giving us a grand total of 45 Međugorje anti-secrets. (And let’s not forget the Fátima II contestant who placed second, Stefano Gobbi! And then there’s this in the full spirit of Pope Francis.) Members FDIC (Fátima Deuterocanonical Impersonators Club).

Croatian national flag.
It wouldn’t be unkind to call Croats “the hillbillies of the Slavs”. Their reliance on the Italian Mafia is analogous to the Klan’s subordinate relationship to Freemasonry or to Neo-Nazism. We’re dealing with a people who straight-up lack the sensitivity to grasp the meaning of Roman Catholicism: hence why they use it almost exclusively as a nationalistic device.
For the record, this is what blew in when we opened the doors at the Second Council of the Vatican. Easy, breezy escape from reality, no more punishments or “chastisements” like in all the approved apparition-locutions: that’s the Međugorje shrine to a tee! Note the lack of heels, which are the part of Mary that the Tempter fears, consistent with the Luciferian “Enlightenment” tone of a great many of her locutions. And this is the same “Mary” who prays “forgive us our trespasses” and whose garments become stained from people touching them. You see what they did there? Pretty neat, huh? (NOT!!!)

INCOMPATIBLE WITH ROMAN CATHOLIC SPIRITUALITY?
“A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign” (Matthew 16:4, D–R).
“And they healed the breach of the daughter of my people disgracefully, saying: Peace, peace: and there was no peace” (Jeremiah 6:14, D–R).

There is an old saying that all that glitters is not gold. And as we’ll learn, not all who wear brown hoods are pure of intent nor do they necessarily even outwardly pretend to be of peace, beyond simply mouthing the word (a Freemasonic characteristic to be sure)!

But before dealing with the popular counterfeit, my approach is to start with a quick rundown of unpopular yet sound spirituality, i.e. the Narrow Way. But first this seems like a good place to note that this post will not be dealing with the numbers of visitors or even religious enlistments, however “confirming” these may be to those already in the tank. Popularity isn’t the same thing as fruits (and last time I checked the Church teaches that invalid confessions are worse than no confession); rather, it is persecution that signals a good harvest. “The blood of the martyrs are the seed of the Church.” In fact, as the true Christians said of the Arians, “they have the churches, but we have the Faith”.

I remember hearing once that in heaven there is only music and silence. In other words the genuinely devout soul, far from frantically thumbing beads, pursues recollection and allows no mundane (much less scandalous) chatter to fend of the threat of “dead air”, no banal, spirit-draining chatterbox experience (albeit baiting us with that initial silent apparition then tap, tap, tapping us along with postponed and ultimately unfulfilled promises of some great sign that never was).

And I remember, by contrast, learning about how German churchgoers were told to “sing a little louder” when from a Nazi cattle train that had to make an emergency stop nearby, cries for help could be heard from the Oriental types who were being forcibly shuttled back east in Germany’s Ashkenazi-funded and meth-fueled reenactment of the Spanish Inquisition.

The fact of the matter is that the mature soul stays true through any and all dark and desolate nights, stoically or soberly, without digressing in order to favor deceitful comforts. The fact is that this mature soul is the soul that will one day be awakened◄04► and forever after behold the radiant face of her God who is the perfection of charity and therefore of every virtue: that is of every strength of character. Indeed the great Doctor of the Church John of the Cross counsels spiritually minded Christians to make an effort to resist “spiritual sweetness” but for sure never on any account to seek it. But who among us◄05► may be reckoned as mature in the Lord? Who of us can actually say that union with God is what we’re going for with our church or other activities? Arguably, where does such a pursuit fit in with today’s parish (or for that matter friary) life? These are tough questions, the short answer would be to seek first God’s kingdom and to have the unitive love of God as your entire goal, but it is of course understandable on a carnal level that many today apparently will put them off so as to prioritize the chatter of easier, breezier, more comfortable forms of Catholicism instead of the cross of Jesus of Nazareth, of John of Castile and of others. Carnally “understandable” that is, yet at the same time unspeakably unwise from an inner- and afterlife standpoint, and I have a hunch that we cannot afford to take for granted that Medge-heads have a sincere belief in the afterlife. But in any case even the most immature of Catholics can agree with me that it is certainly better to receive no apparition-locution from heaven than to receive one from the other place while believing it to be from heaven.

Much of the deeply Second Council of the Vatican–attached “Reformed Catholic” culture, perhaps from a preexisting insecurity at sensing its own optical redundancy, its clerical depravity—in short, its arguably demonically silly hideousness—and perhaps by being already predisposed toward the “Pentecostal Revival”—I mean “Charismatic Renewal”◄06►—and relatedly given to raging incoherently against their own (often “communist”) bishops, yet mystifyingly never against the Talmud or other “traditions of men” as Jesus (quoting Isaiah) did, and by just being what the clergy like to call “your more simple-faithed Catholics”, have acquired a rather jaded taste for the thrill of increasingly hardcore doom ideations◄07► with no apparent quality control over the authenticity much less wholesomeness of their at times (in layman’s terms) thoroughly suspicious apparition-locution suppliers (in the form in this case of alleged Marian apparitionaries). If you’re taking notes, we’ve just covered all of the markings of a cult and of radicalization. (It ain’t just those Muslims, folks, and some of the fruits of Međugorje devotions (this “Gospa Gospel” or Gospal™◄29► for short) that we will be seeing should aid you in getting what I’m saying: “the enemy is us!”)

Now the current state of affairs could in part owe to the Vatican’s refusal since the 1950s to teach on the Apocalypse of Saint John (i.e. the Book of Revelation) or on the “end times”◄08►, bureaucratically producing this legally fictitious “prophecy vacuum”! Camera B: One pastoral lesson here: nature abhors a void, and when the Church’s preaching policies become too “safe”, other less scrupulous ministers will fill the gap. Indeed, as Marian expert Donal Foley summarizes in confirmation of my central thesis, “the only rational conclusion about Međugorje is that it has turned out to be a vast, if captivating, religious illusion”. Foley goes on to attribute the popularity of the Međugorje cult to the fact that Međugorje may appeal to Catholics confused by changes after the Second Council of the Vatican whose ham-handed enforcement of course belied the council’s pastoral rather than dogmatic nature. Could this be you? Is Mr. Foley perhaps another bookish type who has personal job security reasons to blow off these important locutions coming from the alleged apparitionaries of Međugorje? If you’re inclined to think this way, then definitely keep reading: the truth may surprise you.

Catholics today furthermore have to deal with their clergy being overrun by the hardcore St Gallen’s Mafia (a.k.a. the Lavender Mafia) that’s stuck in the 1970s promoting homosexual depredation (i.e. perverts), superficial worldliness (i.e. modernism), progressive politics (i.e. transhumanism, all CIA-shepherded every bit as much as the religious right is) and apparently fewer special callings to live more “visibly holy lifestyles”◄09►, and so naturally they’re going to turn to the convincing supernaturalists and end-timers with their glowing promises of resurrecting your religion by any means necessary similar to a Billy Graham “crusade”. It’s perfectly natural, but then when it all proves to have been an ingenious device to corrupt your mind, then where do you turn?

So it was upon this spiritually bottomed-out and frenetically materialistic cultural landscape (a wicked and corrupt generation, if you will) that entered many 1980s alleged Marian apparitions particularly in Ireland and Italy, among them Our Lady of Međugorje (Međugorska Gospa in the original Croatian), legit pronounced /meh•jew•GORY•eh/ and meaning “betwixt mountains”, that would arguably become The Greatest Religious Show on Earth, all believed by some investigators to have been set up by the same CIA that directed the public lives of both reliably crowd-pleasing thespians Pope John Paul II stationed at Old Rome and President Ronald Reagan reassigned from California to Washington, D.C.◄10►. This slick “arch-operation” that would define the 1980s (“Project: I’m Not a Real Leader but I Play One on TV”?) came out swinging as it entered the fray suspiciously choreographed to pose for photographic opportunities as the bright shining “hero” and take all the credit for the suicide of Bolshevik Qommunism◄11► and to cater to precisely this sort of heroin den demographic of Cold War–weary and apocalypse-crazed Baby Boom brats, raising the (ostensible) piety-dollars that would finance the Croat-dominated (98.5% in 2013) boomtown that is modern Međugorje in the municipality of Čitluk in the southern Herzegovinian region of present-day Bosnia and Herzegovina (as of 1992, initially the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia carried over from World War II (gut-wrenching stories about the Franciscans from back then to follow!) then the Croatian Republic of Herzeg-Bosnia [1991] and finally the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina [1995], which tract of land seems designed to balance out Bosniak versus Croat influence).

And no, this blogger is not being flippant in using substance abuse–suggestive wording here, as there is much to indicate that the purported Marian apparitionaries◄12► in Međugorje[09] were chronic smokers (against their parents’ orders, filial disobedience actually being a theme we will see repeated in Franciscan matters as well) and pathological liars (truly the kind of kids you can easily imagine getting in over their heads such that an unscrupulous adult with a flair for showmanship could get them “off the hook” by means of a win-win strategy—omnibus bono). The tween- and teen-aged purported apparitionaries may have also taken hallucinogenics◄14►, but either way they almost certainly smoked something they didn’t want people to know about while at a still somewhat tender age just prior to their initial alleged apparition-locutions◄15►. Indeed one of the most damning things about the purported apparitionaries is how they changed their story regarding what they were doing atop Podbrdo Hill◄16►, first saying they had hiked up to smoke but later claiming that their aim had been to gather flowers. And there is furthermore something of a very astutely scripted mass–mind manipulation component here, woven into the stereotypically Catholic “Charismatic Renewal” element, comprising this operation◄17► which would obviously explain this CIA affinity for those familiar with spy world (and with the classically Franciscan modus operandi if we’re being brutally honest).

By way of a preliminary word to the wise, probably one of the best clues to assist the cool-headed discerner in getting the human and improvised nature of Our Lady of Međugorje (and indeed the tragically cognitively dissonant mental state of its Medgeheads) is that on 29 June 1981 Rev. Jozo Zovko gave the then tween- and teen-aged “children” a Croatian-language book about Our Lady of Lourdes (which in terms of friar politics [which is what this whole article is about] had represented a big win for the OFM side against the OP side, that is against the Dominican rival-friars). After this, Mirjana and Ivanka declared that their alleged Marian apparitions would have the same duration as those in Lourdes (meaning that the Međugorje apparitions would all completely wrap up on 3 July 1981), claiming that in fact the Blessed Virgin Mary had told them it would end on this date, and this was recorded on audiotape. (They have since changed their story, indeed they later said that the Blessed Virgin Mary offered to continue appearing as long as the tween- and teen-aged “children” wanted her to [alternately when all six children had all ten of their respective {varying} secrets], accommodating their mundane and often sordid schedules and even moving as their gaze shifted (!), and indeed they have been claiming to receive Marian apparitions for over forty years now. In other words, the purported “apparitionaries” were the ones in charge because these weren’t apparitions in any conventional use of the word but were in fact séances or ouija sessions. It’s as if they “love” Our Lady in a very Jeffrey Dahmer sense of the word?) It isn’t clear whether or not this second suspicious self-contradiction was the reason why from early on Tomislav Vlašić and Slavko Barbarić so extensively coached the tween- and teen-aged “children” that they even went to the extreme of forbidding the purported Marian apparitionaries to give any statements without these men’s prior knowledge and insisted on reading the tween- and teen-aged “children’s” diaries, but this is what their almost powerless bishop, Ratko Perić, affirmed that they indeed did. Because there’s regular old clerical child abuse and then there’s “stay on script and no breaking character or the mafia’ll getcha”!

All of these data, one would have hoped, catch the eye of the soundly discerning Catholic as if each fact of the case were a bright red buoy warning sailors of underwater rocks. Thing is though, again the whole mood over there seems to be one of desperation and clique culture—terms like cognitive dissonance and circular reasoning do bear repeating—to the utter exclusion of cool-headed introspection, Church unity or obedience, never mind sound contemplation!

THE LIVES OF THE FRIARS

Now we are going to look at the biographies of some of the spiritual, psychological and finally sexual predators behind this operation who in the 1980s posed as members of the OFM (“Order of Franciscans Minor”) in a part of the world where the Franciscan friars were notorious for directly committing genocide (like physically pushing hundreds of women and children off cliffs) and even more shockingly for butting heads with their legitimate ordinary bishops.

Note that all these men have had clear ties with at least two foreign organized crime◄18► syndicates. The first of these is the Croat separatist “Ustaša” /u•STAH•shah/. Though there’s no real doubt that the Međugorje operation benefits the Croat Mafia, it isn’t yet public knowledge how the money flows, although one orphanage fund was found to be used toward the Croat military and the partly Franciscan-owned Hercegovačka banka (a “private” bank [but then again so is the Federal Reserve] apparently set up to prevent their “occupiers” from profiting off of their operation) was shut down on suspicions that it was funding the Croat Democratic Union [HDZ] to arm Croat separatists—this known fraud is especially telling in view of the glowing statement by Holy See Special Envoy Warsaw Archbishop Henryk Hoser, S.A.C. (you know the one who praised their just unbelievably sketchy “Christian formation” program), that “what confirms the authenticity of the place is the large number of charitable institutions that exist around the sanctuary”. The second syndicate with which the OFMs of Bosnia and Herzegovina have been associated is the Neapolitan “Camorra” (a.k.a. “Campanian Mafia” and not to be confused with the Hill Camorra nor with the Comoros Islands of Captain James Kidd’s exploits), which according to Wikipedia controls the drug trade in Europe and is one of your older, more hardcore, more demonic organized crime syndicates, second only to the Sicilian Mafia with whom they do extensive clandestine substance trade in Italy, the other major difference being that Camorra is more federated while the Sicilian Mafia is more centralized with their formalities mimicking those of churchmen. The Camorrah are deeply involved in matters of church and state. These men do not play nice, and they are of shadow. But what this also means is that these friars had access to hardcore mind-altering substances for their golden egg–laying teens or for whomever, and some of these substances are likely unknown to the Muslim psychoanalyst who, perhaps sensing something of her own faith paradigm (namely very given to violent proselytism and to unexamined mysticism) within this Međugorje movement, chose words that betrayed her own personal bias in favor of Međugorje, a bias that makes sense in view of Međugorje’s clearly Islam-ish overtones and occasional outright praise for Muslims.

The friars whose names follow are further known to have jointly conducted disinhibiting “sensitivity sessions” as E. Michael Jones has termed them, frequently with such drastic and alarming outcomes that similar sessions have now been criminalized in many countries, and the Diocese of Mostar has indeed cautioned the faithful against such “renewals” calling them “dubious”. Were Franciscans not exactly the first kind of person you would expect to be committing crimes against humanity? Well don’t stop reading now—we’re just getting warmed up!

  1. THE FIRST “MARIAN APPARITIONARY SPIRITUAL DIRECTOR”
    Rev. Jozo Zovko, OFM /YOH•zoh ZOFF•coh/
    Last known location: Zagreb, Croatia.
    Canonical status: relocated away from the town of Međugorje, reinstated after decades of defiance.
    Organizations: Roman Catholic Church, Order of Franciscans Minor, Catholic Charismatic Renewal.
    Current bodily health: medically ordered rest for heart condition.
    This guy put the “God” in “Godfather”. The original coach or “advisor” (for like four days) to the initially tween- and teen-aged “children” before being sentenced by the Communists to 3½ years, later reduced to 1½ years, of forced labor on charges of sedition (in lieu of the routine sentence to capital punishment), Zovko was eventually removed from Međugorje this time by Catholic Church authorities amid allegations that he was carrying on with female pilgrims in a sexually molesting manner. Riding this wave of perversion and corruption as a known Ustaša sympathizer, “Father Jozo” has become a top religious figure, rivaling any pope, and he has distanced himself from the others (below) whom he stepped on to get where he is today: organized crime influence again blatantly evident! In a November 2002 letter to Walter Rossi, Jozo Zovko’s Bishop Ratko Perić characterized Zovko as a “disobedient Franciscan”, that is to say that he has exercised the form of ministry while in violation of those vows without which he is no friar and no ministerial priest and indeed Bishop Perić clarified that Zovko had been stripped of “every faculty” to serve in public ministry since 1989 (which was the year Rome confirmed the local bishop’s revocation of Zovko’s priestly jurisdiction, a revocation they never actually enforced until twenty years later in 2009 when Zovko was finally reassigned to Croatia [and, even more shockingly, finally kept a vow and completed his assignment rather than go awol per was his custom]). Now after dismally failing the first two commissioned investigations, the (Card. Camillo) Ruini Commission finally decided that, at the absolute most, the first ten days of alleged (initially silent) Marian apparitions warranted further investigation, but beyond that the Ruini Commission saw way too much politics in all of subsequent alleged apparition-locutions (i.e. those recorded as taking place after 3 July 1981, which again would mean that Our Lady of Međugorje did indeed run as long as Our Lady of Lourdes, i.e. just ten days and no longer—and only three more apparitions in those ten days), making Zovko the only coach who at least initially didn’t allow his order’s politics to influence the tween- and teen-aged “children’s” alleged apparition-locutions and that it would be the even more shameless showman Tomislav Vlašić who would undertake to twist the alleged apparition-locutions in a personally expedient direction. (It is worth noting, however, that social scientist Raymond Eve writes rather clear-headedly concerning the Ruini-countenanced first ten apparition-locutions that “Ivanka, who was the first to perceive a visitation, had just lost her natural mother. The perception of apparitional experiences spread rapidly among her intimate peer group…The region’s tension and anxiety likely exacerbated this contagion process and the need to believe among the [illiterate] youthful protagonists”◄19►.
  2. THE SECOND “MARIAN APPARITIONARY SPIRITUAL DIRECTOR”
    Ex-Rev. Tomislav Vlašić, former OFM /TOM•iss•lav VLAH•shihh/
    Last known location: Gheda (Petfood), Italy.
    Canonical status: excommunicated (with extreme prejudice).
    Organizations: Roman Catholic Church, Order of Franciscans Minor, Catholic Charismatic Renewal, Queen of Peace – Totally Yours – to Jesus through Mary (coed “monastery”), The Fortress of the Impeccable (?), Central Nucleus (heresiarch think tank), Church of Jesus Christ of the Whole Universe (blatant rival to the Catholic Church).
    Current bodily health: unknown.
    Spoiler: clearly a “charismatic leader” in both senses of the word, this guy spells it not Međugorje but rather Međug-orgy! But seriously, if Mr. Tomislav Vlašić’s life has one thing to teach us it must be that disbedience is simply schism in its infancy. Through unrepeatable theological maneuverings (comparing his secret lover’s unwed pregnancy to that of the Blessed Virgin Mary), Vlašić fathered a child (later named Tomo) by this anonymous nun whom he then tried in vain to bribe into silence with a one-time payment (abortive intent implied; manipulators always expect their preys’ souls to sell cheaply). Vlašić’s baby’s nameless mama then moved with her son to Germany (a move that sources indicate Vlašić may have encouraged, and the ill-fated lovers seem to have kept written correspondence). While all this was going on, at a Charismatic gathering in Rome in May 1981 (the month preceding the onset of the alleged Marian apparitions in Međugorje), Briege McKenna, O.S.C. (a “Poor Clare”) “prophesied” (all under the direction of our covert mafia don Jozo Zovko) that Vlašić would be in a twin-towered church “surrounded by a large crowd” or group of people with rivers of “living water” flowing away from the place where he would sit, and a Dominican priest who then added: “Do not be afraid: I will send you my mother”. As it happened, a few weeks later, on 25 June 1981 the alleged Marian apparitions began also under Godfather Jozo Zovko’s direction, and Vlašić became their spiritual director on the 29th and forbade the purported Marian apparitionaries to make any statements without his prior knowledge and insisted on reading the tween- and teen-aged “children’s” diaries in an effort to put a stop to their erstwhile abysmal track record for internal consistency. (Like herding cats or Croats I tell you!) Then while Jozo Zovko was detained by the Soviets, Vlašić, with his experience in choreographing what again the Diocese of Mostar characterizes as “dubious Charismatic spiritual renewals” back in Čapljina, appears to have taken Zovko’s place, relocating from Čapljina where he was supposed to be pastor (just a chronic deadbeat type apparently) and on at least this occasion his Franciscan provincial, one Jozo Pejić /YOH•zoh PAY•yeahh/, joined him in disobedience (but you know I’m sure there are many fine men named Jozo too) to the town of Međugorje while having zero correspondence with, let alone permission from, his bishop, who approved the move only on 27 July 1982 (owing to his then unawareness of Vlašić’s whole affair, son and cover-up thang). In an ostensibly penitential statement on 3 April 1982 the tween- and teen-aged “children” made a great show of “confessing” that when the bishop had asked them on 15 January of that year whether or not the Blessed Virgin Mary had commented to them concerning the guilt or innocence of friar-priests Ivan Prusina /ee•VAHN proo•SEE•nuh/ and Ivica Vego /ee•VEE•kah VAY•goh/ who had been laicized on the charge that they had led an angry mob to evict a legitimately installed secular pastor in Mostar, Vlašić had manipulated them to lie to his bishop (millstone pending) and say that the Blessed Virgin Mary had said nothing when, according to their again showily “penitential” statement, the Blessed Virgin had indeed allegedly proclaimed the friar-priests’ innocence to Vicka◄20►, ordering that the two friar-priests be reinstated. (The purported Marian apparitionaries, seemingly always taking the sneakiest road possible, had already behind the scenes instructed the friar-priests to ignore their bishop’s orders laicizing the pair.) Later Rome would step on the bishop’s toes, complying with Our Lady’s apparent request by reinstating the two Mostar Franciscans in question, but later still it would be uncovered that Vego, far from being the innocent type, had like Vlašić fathered a child by a consecrated nun and covered it up. (Quick aside, why is it that Our Lady of Međugorje just never seems to detect the presence of love-children? Oh well, no matter.) Vego then shacked up with his paramour, settling down in that wretched hive of scum and villany known to you and me as Međugorje where St James (Sveti Jakov) Parish, notwithstanding everything, kept his bestselling prayer book in its inventory alongside Maria Valtorta’s once expressly forbidden The Poem of the Man-God. The erstwhile lawless couple however did eventually marry and (again like Vlašić) move to Italy. This state of affairs seemed to satisfy Bishop Žanić (also all sane people) that this whole Međugorje thing was indeed all just a cleverly orchestrated scam. The alleged Marian apparitions are chronicled in a brazenly fraudulent log kept by Vlašić and titled Chronicle of the Apparitions that was ultimately deemed “not credible” by a Vatican investigative commission. And just to get an idea, Rome will apply the term credible to anything unless and until it is demonstrably false. In this case, anachronisms abounded in the early entries so that based on simultaneous history it doesn’t appear that writing began any earlier than October of 1981. On 21 June 1983 and 6 February 1985, purported Marian apparitionary Ivan Dragičević (who would later marry, I kid you not, a Miss Massachusetts by the name of Laureen Murphy having flunked out of two seminaries, with whom he lives in a $1M-plus mansion), under Vlašić’s tutelage, went on the attack, telling the bishop that he was in big trouble with the Our Lord and Our Lady unless he (I am not even making this up) “converts” (because Međugorje is a solidification of the “Spirit of Vatican II” [or rather of the KGB] cult*** or?) from scrutinizing the Međugorje apparitions or at least refrains from “persecuting” those priests who believe in what at this point could not be more obviously a rival religion with the clear (and clearly Croat-separatist) goal of hijacking and distorting rather than in any wise faithfully promoting the Catholic Faith (see quotes above). Note that Ivan’s diary frequently bashes and threatens the local bishop which was why the gang steadfastly refused to hand them over to bishops and commissions, even going so far as to deny its existence. Lie-la-lie! Furthermore, on 2 September 1984 Vlašić was transferred to Vitina whereupon we have a letter where Vlašić not very subtly implied his bishop was a slave of Satan and in which he cast about for any believable excuse to keep supporting his habit of being a religious con artist. (His exact words were: “It would be necessary to get all the others involved (intellectuals, theologians, bishops, cardinals…). We have to admit that Satan can also work through the structures of the Church.”) It was after this that Vlašić’s baby’s mama sent a November 1984 note to Vlašić’s bishop (other sources say her landlord simply dumped Vlašić’s and his ex-lover’s mutual correspondence on then Cardinal Ratzinger now Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI), whereupon Vlašić was confronted, made no denial of the claims, and finally had to leave the town of Međugorje, though Vlašić would remain actively involved with Međugorje believers until the present day, only physically departing Međugorje in 1987 when the affair and cover-up were finally made public. The Mostar Chancellor claimed that Vlašić, whom Bishop Žanić had called a “Charismatic magician”, had “conjured up evil spirits in Međugorje”, and indeed his future career choices would bear out this characterization of the man’s religious leadership style. When Vlašić (again finally) had to leave the town of Međugorje, it appears that Jozo Zovko (and Vlašić?) wasted no time in directing the purported Marian apparitionaries to proclaim Vlašić’s innocence◄21►, and indeed their alleged apparition-locutions have routinely been critical of the divinely anointed bishops and supportive of the evil friars of a candidly reprobate character. One purported Marian apparitionary even went so far as using her apparently magisterial authority as what must be termed the “Popess of Charismatic Catholics” to sanction a wantonly scandalous◄22► coed “Marian religious community” in Parma, Italy (because organized crime and occultism naturally) together with his latest paramour Agnes Heupel who ironically hails from Germany where his at-risk son was growing up! (Word to the wise: vow-breaking relations of a heterosexual nature are rather the exception within these “Vatican II” orders and societies.) In founding the religious community (called Queen of Peace – Totally Yours – to Jesus through Mary) Vlašić left the Franciscan Province of Herzegovina. Later in 1987 Bishop Benito Cocchi of Parma shut down the strange foundation, but with the help of “association deputy head” Stefania Caterina they branched out and spread their tentacles, including back to good old Međugorje! But it was in the aftermath of this “prophetic” overreach that the mask really started to crack: in July of 1988 the “apparitionary” who had formerly approved the Queen of Peace community recanted and repented before the Blessed Sacrament then went on to recount Vlašić’s manipulation of her (specifically he had told her what to claim that the Gospa [i.e. the Blessed Virgin Mary] had told her). Then in 1992 Vlašić joined the Franciscan Province of Abruzzo, down south aways in central Italy. Vlašić claims that in 2007 he and Stefania Caterina retreated to solace. Either way, in 2008 Vlašić was subjected to a CDF investigation in their words “for the diffusion of dubious doctrine, manipulation of consciences, suspect mysticism, disobedience towards legitimately issued orders” and charges of sexual misconduct (contra sextum) and was in fact finally laicized by then Pope Benedict XVI on the grounds of “suspicion of heresy and schism, as well as scandalous acts contra sextum [against the sixth commandment], aggravated by mystical motivations”. After finally leaving the town of Međugorje and disappearing for a time (presumably to regroup and conspire with his CIA handlers sore at having their grasp on the Chair of Peter thus loosened), Vlašić was found to a member of the Joseph Smith–, Teilhard de Chardin–, C.S. Lewis– or L. Ron Hubbard–inspired “Central Nucleus” (commissioned “to save humanity in all [three] universes”), the pope of his own Church of Jesus Christ of the Whole Universe (“to root the whole universe in Jesus Christ”), and moreover living in sin and scandal with the aforementioned Agnes Heupel (not to be confused with the church’s co-popess Stefania Caterina who started as Vlašić’s spiritual directee and is now his lover), Vlašić all the while continuing to represent himself and to “minister” as a “Catholic priest” (because Italy)! Now Tomislav Vlašić was finally excommunicated on 23 October 2020 (hindsight for ya), making him the 178th person ever excommunicated (different link). (Yup, that’s what it takes these days when you’re a serial con artist on behalf of the élite who is ready, willing and able to bring pious idiots into line and bring in the dough!) Despite living in Italy and being 1000% outside the Catholic Church, it seems that Vlašić persists in pretending to be a Catholic priest, in claiming to receive apparition-locutions from God the Father, the Holy Spirit, the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Apostles and (being an unscrupulous occultist naturally) the archangels (whereas Stefania only sees the Blessed Virgin), and in owning this ultra-creepy hotel in the town of Međugorje that features a “Door of Light” through which initiates become dead to themselves (and alive to what though?!). (Note: all of this is just what we know!) On 20 May 2018 the Church of Jesus Christ of the Whole Universe was established on and in 2019 was formally registered in Italy as a non-profit organization, its charter having been laid out in their 2008 book Preko Velike Barijere (Through the Great Barrier), basically to bring saving knowledge of Jesus to the whole universe which supposedly lacks said knowledge.
    The rest is adapted from Wikipedia: According to the teaching of the Earth (!), after a Great Jubilee in 2000 (New Age of Aquarius?), God “speeded up” (sic)◄23► his plan for the new creation, using many (ordinary) “instruments”: Fátima, Međugorje and whatnot. They believe that God asked the “official Catholic Church” to recognize the existence of humans in other universes but that it (obviously) still hasn’t done so. Therefore in 2004 God mobilized the three “extraordinary instruments”: the Central Nucleus, the angels, and the brethren faithful to their brethren elsewhere in the universe. They claim that these three “extraordinary instruments” complete the tasks that the Catholic Church had refused. According to the Church of Jesus Christ of the Whole Universe, God tasked the Archangel Michael with leading these three “extraordinary instruments” all of whom would be challenged by “Lucifer and his allies”. The Church of Jesus Christ of the Whole Universe claims that the year 2012 was a turning point where God for the final time asked humanity to serve him. That year Vlašić had asked Pope Francis to acknowledge the existence of humans in other universes, which the Pope (obviously) hasn’t done. Between 2013 and 2017 people from the High Universe visited the Middle and the Lower universes spreading news of redemption in Jesus and christening (meaning confirming or?) everyone…The Church of Jesus Christ of the Whole Universe claims that 2018 begins the evangelization of the people of the Earth, which is the first step towards the “Christs’” (?) return… (Why is everybody laughing?) (Note: in the wake of the alleged apparitions at Međugorje the Franciscans have literally erected church buildings without ecclesastical permission.) Now ask yourself: Is Vlašić’s full flowering any less Catholic than Međugorje itself? By no means, since zero is equal to zero! (With that said, it may surprise them when their respective places in hell do after all differ.) Note the link between religious indifferentism and wild extraterrestrial claims: you make the world of men seem larger so that your interfaith agenda seems less radical against this backdrop.
  3. THE THIRD “MARIAN APPARITIONARY SPIRITUAL DIRECTOR”
    Rev. Slavko Barbarić, OFM /SLAV•co BAR•bar•itch/
    Canonical status:
    Organizations: Roman Catholic Church, Order of Franciscans Minor, Catholic Charismatic Renewal
    Bodily health: deceased.
    Now to complete the unholy trinity we have the gangster, the conman, and finally the academic. A doctor of catechesis [in what though?] and psychotherapy who studied in Freiburg, Germany, Barbarić succeeded Vlašić as spiritual director to the now even more adult “children” in 1984, adding his own entries to the fraudulent Chronicle of the Apparitions, and at this juncture Barbarić finally forewent all pretense to being a spiritual assistant in Mostar, his nominal assignment. #OFMAWOL Even vocal supporters such as Split-Makarska Archbishop Frane Franić have stated that Barbarić used his pedagogy and general psychology background to, as his excellency put it, “coach” the adult “children”. Bishop Žanić ordered Barbarić to change towns from Međugorje to Blagaj on 3 January 1985, but Barbarić’s provinicial initially disregarded the order #OFMAWOL, and even when Žanić didst finally deign to grace Blagaj and later Humac (20 July 1985) with his presence he still remained active in the town of Međugorje, additionally handling the purported Marian apparitionaries on global tours, until Barbarić disappeared completely from Humac. #OFMAWOL In his telling response to the 1991 bishop’s conference in Zadar which expressed its utter frustration in seeking any evidence whatsoever that could be taken as suggesting supernatural origins for the alleged Marian apparitions in Međugorje, the ever-disobedient and fraudulent Barbarić shot back: “We have our sanctuary. We have permission for the people to come here. Why do we need the seers anyway?” Clearly here was a man who knew exactly what he was doing and was at the point of no longer caring who else knew! Indeed one is tempted to wonder if John Paul II wasn’t expressing a similar cynicism concerning the alleged Marian apparitions’ authenticity when he sort of threw up his hands and said in one of his not made-up statements about the alleged Marian apparitions in Međugorje: “If they are converting [also “reverting”, but to what?], praying, fasting, going to confession and doing penance, let them go to Međugorje.” It’s haunting to consider that, even if the alleged Marian apparitions weren’t real, these men undeniably had a vision for a new future church with its own “alien” (demonic?) theology, and then to ask yourself the tough question of Where did this vision originate if not from these relatively younger purported Marian apparitionaries? And indeed on 13 May 2017, Pope Francis, as a caveat while he lifted the ban on pilgrimages, declared that the original alleged Marian apparitions reported by the teenagers were worth studying in more depth, while the subsequent continued alleged Marian apparitions over the years were, in his view, of dubious value, a sad commentary on Barbarić’s legacy to be sure. Barbarić would remain in Međugorje until passing on to his personal judgment in 2000 nine months after the first of two suspensions of his confessional jurisdiction by Bishop Perić on the basis of his ultimate decision to disobey both bishop and provincial in favor of a highly suspect voice that made all kinds of cavalier claims concerning its origin. #OFMAWOLRIP

Traditional Tarot decks have 22 cards with allegorical subjects. These serve as trump cards in the game. The Fool is usually a kind of wild-card among the trumps and unnumbered, so the highest trump is numbered 21. The Second Council of the Vatican was the 21st ecumenical council (by Rome’s reckoning). Occult Tarot decks usually have 22 similar cards which are called Major Arcana by fortune-tellers. Occultists have related this number to the 22 letters (21 consonants?) of the Hebrew alphabet and the 22 paths in the Kabbalistic Tree of Life.

THE FACTS AND THEIR IMPLICATIONS

In E. Michael Jones’s critical analysis the Međugorje pilgrimeers (i.e. these rogue OFMs and their child-marionettes) are “using the spirituality of the Catholic Church [and that of their founding ‘Father Francis’] to draw people [in], then…ignoring the authority of the [same] Catholic Church” and the poverty, pacifism and other near and dear values of Brother Francis when these don’t suit their human agenda! This bait-and-switch formula appears to summarize the “tithing” 🤮 engine that finances the Međugorje operation; it is indeed this blatant hypocrisy that seems to be the key to what has been termed the “Međugorje industry”.

With one notable exception, no bishop with apostolic jurisdictional authority over the town of Međugorje since that first summer of 1981 has expressed anything other than not only a doubt of its supernatural claims but an active disbelief in said claims. For a Church that professes to practice hierarchical subsidiarity rather than imperialistic ultramontanism, the supervision over the “Gospal” to date presents a serious credibility problem!

The reader will further note that Pope John Paul II ultimately refused to visit Međugorje after Medgeheads◄24► used their well-known worldly and underworldly (organized crime) ties to beat and kidnap for ten hours their own Bishop Ratko Perić /RAHT•co PEH•trich/, together with his secretary, whom that most popular of popes (notorious for ordaining active homosexuals sadly, great job CIA) had just appointed to succeed Bishop Žanić. Perić and his secretary were detained in a chapel that was under the management of Franciscan friar-priests who were also associated with the Međugorje operation.◄25► (Again, still better than genocide. More about His Late Excellency in the following paragraph.) The motive behind, and indeed the demand during, this kidnapping which took place on 26 March 1995, was to obtain permission to run a parish in an illicit manner. (To add insult to injury the assailants ripped off their bishop’s pectoral cross.) This may perhaps serve as the most vivid example to date of the limitless disobedience and violence that pervades within Međugorje’s “spiritual” leadership. The attack was clearly motivated in part by the “apparition-locutions” which were worded prophetically but were clearly intended as a threat (see also Joseph Smith). Now personally, if Our Lady of Međugorje ever threatens me with “divine justice” what I’ll be on the lookout for is a lynch mob rather than a lightning bolt.

Now for those either poorly catechized or perchance well CharismaticizedMeđugorjized, Pavao Žanić /pah•VOW ZHAH•niche/ being Perić’s predecessor of course had likewise enjoyed both Rome’s approval and full apostolic authority over the town as well as St James Parish in Međugorje from the inception of the alleged Marian apparitions. It was he, that is it was Bishop Žanić, who commissioned an investigation that concluded that it was able to find a grand total of zero scraps of evidence indicating supernatural phenomena at its conclusion in the Year of Our Lord 1985. Now there are, on the other hand, suggestions that the commission was in essence rigged against the alleged Marian apparitions and that furthermore some Muslim doctress once exclaimed that the now entirely teen-aged “children” were of such sound mind that only those of abnormal psychology would even have brought them to her for evaluation. (Homework: watch Harvey starring Jimmy Stewart after reading this.)

This blogger can freely attest that the Medgeheads and (ironically called) “prayer warriors” in his own hometown love usurping authority through feral (“prophetic”) spectacles in which they instigate public verbal altercations provoking their own priests when they’re not spitting the most toxic gossip imaginable about them behind their backs and disobeying them like it’s going out of style.

And quite apart from Međugorje and the former Yugoslavia more broadly, this blogger witnessed an OFM-run “Charismatic retreat” in t.b.’s own (in many other ways wildly perverse and corrupt) home parish where t.b. saw first-hand the deceitful twisting of arcane words in tandem with bodily gestures (referred to in some circles as NLP or neurolinguistic programming) employed to produce predetermined mindsets in the unwitting (because artfully misdirected) faithful, all based, rest assured, on humanly induced impressions and also on nothing discernibly divine.

So yes the Franciscan Province of Herzegovina is quite the breakaway province ever since Rome’s 1923 decision to begin the (completely routine and healthy) process of normalization (i.e. transitioning from mission mode [and here it became such a violent caricature of mission work as to further justify this decision] to secular mode) by giving half of the Franciscans’ parishes to diocesan priests, and the province’s friars have been notorious for directly and violently perpetrating genocide (or at minimum ideocide, a.k.a. persecution and martyrdom) against their own brothers in Christ the Eastern Orthodox Serbs during World War II (so not quite a channel of God’s peace any more than they carry themselves like sons of Francis of Assisi in any other respect). But this blogger has witnessed that even outside this unusually diabolical clan within the Franciscan family, the OFMs exhibit this pattern of occultism in the form of clerical esoteric dabblings and messing with the minds of their parishioners and other audiences. And it is therefore no surprise when, just after the bishop’s commission found no supernatural content within the alleged Marian apparitions in Međugorje, the OFMs immediately had the now entirely teen-aged “children” call on Medge-heads to turn positives into negatives◄26► (not negatives into positives as I wishfully heard it initially), something drawing perhaps from Croat folk magic. And many of their broadcast phrases will be difficult to trace simply because the inner clique in Međugorje, like the Vatican City-state itself, may be building its own library of obscure occult tomes—gnostic gospels, grimoires, A Course in Miracles, the Necronomicon, the Zohar and what-have-you—as just another component of this rather naked bid for unrivaled religious prominence. And this is an important reason why unfortunately many popular but weak-minded, spiritually immature or obviously CIA-connected ecclesiastical celebrities like Pope John Paul II, particularly devoted to, and indebted to, the alarmingly pro-Međugorje theologian Hans Urs von Balthasar (whom John Paul tried to make a cardinal) can’t possibly be taken seriously when showing unofficial support for Međugorje in all these allegedly encouraging secret conversations that Medgeheads pretend somehow trump the duty of these religious priests to keep their vows to the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity and obedience and to stop sowing the seeds of division and scandal in their cavalier stride, the baked-in conflict of interest with regard to international intelligence being painfully real. We must stoically or soberly content ourselves with understanding the late pope’s refusal to visit Međugorje as the clearest message the late pontiff durst send us concerning his perhaps true personal feelings on the matter, that pope who went to his grave bemoaning the materialism of the Poles, another fact E. Michael Jones has brought to light.

The blogger notes here that contempt for the Eastern Orthodox and their ways, a contempt that was and is white-hot in Međugorje (yes I am aware that the messages say that the Eastern Orthodox and Muslims for that matter have no need of the Catholic Church), has consistently borne rotten fruit in the Roman Catholic community, beginning with the so-called Hesychast (i.e. the Prayer of the Heart) “controversy” from which only one side (theirs, who defended the practice) has a canonized saint! Slightly better though far from ideal is cultural appropriation, such as happened with the Divine Mercy prayers wherein the Trisagion (even more beautiful when sung correctly, protip) was infused into Catholic devotions.

See, while on the surface Međugorje culture is laying all the groundwork to replace the Vatican, in terms of the deep state◄27► the Papacy is scripted by the same cynical internationalists/interreligionists/geopolitical occultists that coreograph the “Gospal”. This also goes a long way in accounting for why the Holy See won’t vocally denounce or even disavow Constantinople (excommunication lifted in 1965), Moscow (or Kyev, never excommunicated just sort of Fátima’d—score one for Carmel), Canterbury (still excommunicated), Augsburg (still excommunicated) or the current West Jerusalem régime (officially “Jewish” [in the racist not religionist sense of the word, crucially] and consistently [albeit sneakily] anti-Christian), all so sacred (rightly or insanely) to many who confess Jesus as the Christ. Heck, under Pope Francis◄28► the Vatican City-state even put Martin Luther on their postage, which may well be the political equivalent of elevating infernal “earth goddess” idols inside Saint Peter’s Basilica. (Disclaimer: this blogger is not calling on anyone to do anything to the current pope of Rome other than pray, blog, and litigate!)

In short, members of the Order of Franciscans Minor (OFMs), as a general rule, are either out of their minds or sold out to the oligarchs and never to be trusted. What they do under the guise of CharismaticPrayer™◄29► is disturbing to the point of being criminally inhuman. They are essentially “good cops” busily slipping subliminals into our souls on behalf of the powered and moneyed (((élite))), and unfortunately this has set the tone for how the Church treats the poor.

Come to think of it, that’s got to be why you keep seeing these new societies—the Vincentians, Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity, Dorothy Day’s Catholic Worker—in the hopes that one of them will remain humble and sound and not flip Marxist or Keynesian (i.e. communist or capitalist in that soulless sense). If there was ever indeed a period in history when the OFMs were in any sense the “purely righteous conscience of the Church” this is not the case today and it probably hasn’t been since Francis of Assisi stepped down in protest of precisely this classically Franciscan sort of avarice creep!

Our Lady of Međugorje has been called “the biggest hoax in the history of the Roman Catholic Church” (see video below). Ten years into his assignment at St James Parish in Međugorje, one of your more fidelity-minded Franciscan friar-priests summarized the entire thing as “the devil’s plan for the pious”. The veteran pastor went on to say that “the whole point [of the Franciscan operation in Međugorje] is to take a human oracle and promote it to the status of something divine, and then to excommunicate everyone who doesn’t believe it,” which was exactly where Vlašić was at just before he went off the deep end. The above cited veteran pastor further declared that “[t]his is another Jesus,” which in Biblical terms, just so the reader knows the score, constitutes it as Antichrist, to say nothing of radical or cultish! It’s so important for Catholics who claim to preach the Gospel to also keep reading the Gospel and keep fending off Pharisaism in all its many forms, because plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose. We must do all with love, including prayer, or there’s literally zero value to it.

Six purported Marian apparitionaries, in order: Ivan Dragićević, Marija Pavlović, Ivanka Ivanković, Mirjana Dragićević, Jakov Čolo (whose mother succumbed to the effects of alcoholism roughly two years into the alleged apparitions, and Vicka Ivanković (apparently including two pairs of siblings).
Conspicuously absent are Ivan Ivanković and Milka Pavlović both of whom allegedly claimed to have seen the first alleged (silent) Marian apparition but no further apparitions (!)
Also absent is Jelena Vasilj who claimed to have apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary on 24 May 1983.
“LYING LIPS ARE AN ABOMINATION TO THE LORD: but they that deal faithfully please him” (Proverbs 12:22, D–R, caps added)
“BECAUSE THEY RECEIVE NOT THE LOVE OF THE TRUTH, THAT THEY MIGHT BE SAVED…THEREFORE GOD SHALL SEND THEM THE OPERATION OF ERROR, to believe lying: That all may be judged who have not believed the truth, but have consented to iniquity” (2 Thessalonians 2:10b–12, D–R, caps added).
Supposed “transport” or “ecstasy” proved fraudulent.
(The devil’s knock-offs really never are as good as God’s originals.)

Bishop Pavao Žanić of Mostar-Duvno?, the first bishop to have been landed with the unenviable task of shepherding this whole messy Međugorje business, wrote in a 1987 letter to Rev. Hugh Thwaites, SJ: “I AM SURE THAT OUR LADY DOES NOT APPEAR. No miracles. The ‘messages’ cannot be of our Virgin. They are the fruit of a FABRICATION, FRAUD AND DISOBEDIENCE to the Church. It is about big money and personal interest [as well].” (Caps added.) So well said: macroeconomics and deranged ethnofascism, that is indeed the x-factor with all things Međugorje. The bishop went on to say that people who put their own words into the mouth of the Blessed Virgin Mary◄30► have merited for themselves not so much heaven as the lowermost bowels of hell. His Late Excellency finally denounced the OFMs◄31► for their disobedient haste in promoting the alleged apparitions, in his words “hurrying forward before the Church’s judgment”.

There is still much about which we can only speculate. What do the OFMs and their CIA handlers aspire to achieve? Can it be anything other than a false “Catholicism” rebuilt in the image and likeness of that increasingly discredited American cult that alternately insists on calling itself Mormons and Latter-day Saints?◄32►

“Just as one whiff of crack can give some people a cocaine addiction for life, so one touch of spiritual consolation of demonic origin can give some people an undying craving for more of the same” (Rev. Hugh Thwaites, SJ). Think your more messed-up Bible camp experiences I think.

On March 18, 2020, Mirjana Dragičević Soldo announced that the Blessed Mother would no longer appear to her on the second of each month.

But the highly-problematic-at-best Pope Francis (famous for saying “Make a mess!” and for his unabashedly Freemasonic ideology both of which would seem to endear him to the direction in which Međugorje moves the mind of the Medgehead), notably more than any other pope in the alleged apparitions’ history, seems inclined to throw his measured support into the initial alleged apparitions, although as a matter of personal taste he says that he prefers “the Madonna as…our Mother” rather than “the head of the telegraphic office, who sends a message every day: this is not the Mother of Jesus”.◄33► To be clear, Pope Francis leaves no room for hope that the ongoing apparitions have any authenticity to them, and contrary to media lies his use of the phrase “good, very good” is in reference not to the apparitions nor to their fruits but rather to the bishop whom he was sending to evaluate the pragmatic and pastoral end of things (see video below). Indeed ruling Communists before the 1991–2 breakup of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia had come to view the tourism from 1982 as an economic benefit to their ultimately doomed cause. It’s almost as if Pope Francis is beginning to achieve self-awareness in the midst of his power trip and starting to see the handwriting on the wall of his own tyrannical régime. But another take on Pope Francis’s smarmy (if measured) “warmth” toward the “Gospal”, in view of the Jesuit Pope’s similarly uncharacteristic welcoming of the FSSPX (often simply “SSPX”) also more so than popes past, could be that, being the unprincipled churchman that he is (let’s just say it: surrounded by arch–child rapists), Pope Francis simply befriends those he would sooner disband if he thought he could do so effectively.

Spiritual damage assessment and action proposals

  • It impresses this blogger that you have a cult following that will rough up and indefinitely detain a middle-aged bishop and his secretary yet will not defend their own daughters’ honor against rapacious “friars” (which is true because of course they’re really organized crime bosses). Without even considering anything else (such as the multiple organized crime ties), this by itself would constitute that whole place as being clearly demon-infested. With all due respect, did the Ruini commission, disturbingly dismissive as it was of demonic origins theories, even ask themselves whether or not the prevalence of genocide and organized criminals could lend themselves to a (to this blogger) incomparably more satisfying occult or demonic narrative on the alleged apparitions?
  • And speaking of demonic infestation, this blogger can only gape in wonder that the Vatican today has all these unprecedentedly exalted “exorcist priests” (such as that Međugorje shill Rev. Gabriele Amorth), literally now awarding each other “doctorates” in exorcism, running around profiting from oft-dubious “accounts” of their “heroic work” while safely behind Vatican walls, and yet not a one of them can be bothered to denounce much less deliver the abominable cult*** of Our Lady of Međugorje and of the “Spirit of Vatican II” (or rather of the KGB) in all of its spiritual filth◄34►. It all just goes to show that the deeply ingrained avarice of today’s mercenary desk jockey priests is every bit as bad or worse than under the Renaissance “popes”, that for sheer in-your-face corruption the OFMs are as bad or worse than the OPs ever were, if such a thing were possible. But on a hopeful note, a more hands-on bishop, who has actually done the unheard of in personally performing some of his own diocese’s exorcisms, has stated the following: “It is an absolutely diabolical event, around which numerous underworld [double-entendre?] interests revolve…I’m referring to ‘the Devil’s dung’, to money, what else? At Međugorje everything happens for the sake of money: pilgrimages, overnight stays, the sales of trinkets. In this way, abusing the good faith of the poor people who go there with the idea of meeting the Madonna, the false seers have set themselves up financially, they have married and live a wealthy life, to say the least” (Bishop Andrea Gemma of Isernia-Venafro).
  • Or at the very least, where is the Swiss Guard when a bishop in a problem diocese is being beaten and kidnapped? Send ’em in! Send them to Međugorje, send them to China…
  • What if anything does the OFMs’ Minister General Massimo Fusarelli have to say about this whole scandalous mess?

Lastly, please buy E. Michael Jones’s book or at least subscribe to his BitChute channel. Same goes for Hutton Gibson, Peter Levenda, David Irving. If not for yourselves, just do it for me: I want to live in a society that’s intelligent (and not brainwashed by “intelligence”)!

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE: FAKE POPE QUOTE?

There is a quote that is chronically misattributed by Međugorje pilgrimeers (and by no one else) that claims while offering no source (to be fair, there isn’t one) that 17th-century Pope Urban VIII made the anachronistic (because Mormonistic) declaration that:

In cases which concern private revelations, it is better to believe than to not believe, for if you believe, and it is proven true, you will be happy that you have believed, because our Holy Mother asked it. If you believe, and it should be proven false, you will receive all blessings as if it had been true, because you believed it to be true.

Not Pope Urban VIII

Although it is inconceivable that any pope of Rome would ever say anything even remotely similar to this, the effect that it has, just like the heretical statements that the tweens and teens of Međugorje blasphemously ascribe to the Blessed Virgin Mary, is to pivot so nimbly from a Catholic and discerning modality into an abjectly wisdom-free “Mormonized” paradigm as a farmer’s enemy might plants weeds in the farmer’s wheat field in the hopes of ultimately draining the whole deposit of faith by means of unchecked mysticism, which as John Henry Cardinal Newman put it “begins in mist and ends in schism”. How can this be anything save the long-term agenda of Big Tyranny?

To just repeat a paragraph from above, According to Catholic Church teaching, if you don’t believe in Fátima you are still eligible for heaven, but if you believe in Međugorje then you can in no wise be eligible for heaven, again always assuming that Church teachings mean anything. Hence it is always better to err on the side of caution, albeit with love.

Context: it’s a huge thing with promoters of Međugorje and likewise of Maria Valtorta that they spout fake saint and pope quotes left right and center. They’re completely unhinged quite apart from being un-Christian in every possible sense of the word.

To give you some idea, this utterly bizarre and effortlessly debunked misattribution is quoted as if genuine in the following media:

Footnotes

  • * Međugorjean “Christian formation” 🤮 has the strength that it is presented in a format that is organic, feminine one might say. It may borrow its style from G.K. Chesterton. (After all, that was good enough for Gandhi!)
  • ** The Church’s involvement with Međugorje is, by all top clergy statements, purely for recruitment (“evangelization” and “vocations”) opportunities since Međugorje sort of jolts life into the now rapidly outmoded “Spirit of Vatican II” (or rather of the KGB).
  • *** The implied creed in the “Spirit of Vatican II” cult (word to the wisest) is that everybody is already catholic whether they know it or not, similar to how the implied creed of the Jesuit is Nestorianism.
  • ◄01► Mormons lately prefer to be called Latter-day Saints, whence Mormonism would be LDSism or something like that..
  • ◄02► Just in case it wasn’t already perfectly clear, God is Three but that doesn’t mean he has to do everything in threes, least of all by man’s sense of timing!
  • ◄03► Who after all loves money as much as any friar does, and don’t forget to buy his book and watch his video linked below.
  • ◄04► This awakening occurs generally though not necessarily in that process which we vain fools call “death” which of course Jesus transforms into the best friend of the true disciple.
  • ◄05► Especially if, for whatever flimsy excuse, we aren’t cloistered Teresian Carmelites (this blogger is not, but if you must be a loyal Catholic then you must at minimum be a Carmelite, just saying): “Carmel teaches the Church how to pray” (Pope Benedict XVI). “There is no member of the Church who does not owe something to Carmel” (Thomas Merton).
  • ◄06► Sanctioned by Pope Paul VI in 1975 and sneakily disobedient, insular, paranoid, divisive and Antichrist (meaning that they subtly present the faithful with an alternative or parallel savior) ever since. Francis Michael Duff, LOM, founder of the Legion of Mary, wrote in a letter to Rev. Hugh Thwaites, SJ, that “The Charismatic Renewal movement is one of the most dangerous things in the Church today”. Like Pentecostals, who are their Protestant elder brethren, Charismatics generally feel that if you don’t have the “baptism in the Holy Spirit” then you’re damned and if you don’t speak in “tongues” then you’re sort of an abortion of a Christian. In other words they appear to be Corinthian sectarians more than being “of Christ” in any serious way. Non-OFM groups that are “Charismatic” in this ecclesiastical sense of the word include the late Rev. Benedict Groeschel and his CFR (Franciscan Friars of the Renewal) who purvey similar scientific mind control tactics with status quo attitudes, both of which frequently cross the line into abusiveness or downplaying the severity thereof for which Rev. Groeschel as well as Abp. Henryk Hoser really carved out a name for themselves.
  • ◄07► Though apparently wholly forsaking the classical “three days of darkness” and other signatures of the end-times “certainties” of their Latin Mass–going counterparts.
  • ◄08► Catholics are never compelled on pain of hellfire to believe any alleged Marian apparitions, which are often eschatological in content.
  • ◄09► “Vocations” as we rather cynically label them
  • ◄10► The same CIA that supplied Jerry Garcia and the “Deadheads” with copious amounts of LSD, some of whose addicts this blogger has seen in person, living out their existence mumbling platitudes and being exploited by the landowners who rule the roost in the so-called “Rainbow Family”. Another very American phenomenon, completely intel-controlled.
  • ◄11► Communism’s successor authoritarians had long since rather visibly if quietly made their peace with race realism and implemented ethnostatist fascism.
  • ◄12► This blogger will uniformly call them purported Marian apparitionaries though they are sometimes referred to, especially within the cult (particularly by its CIA handlers perhaps), as seers, visionaries or simply children (actually tweens and teens at their youngest) possibly revelators, messengers or prophets too!
  • ◄13► Međugorje, Cyrillically transliterated Међугорје, is under the Diocese of Mostar-Duvno. (This becomes hugely important later touching both on issues of obedience to the corresponding bishop and indeed fidelity to their pope) and is also within the modern-day state of Bosnia and Herzegovina (henceforth B&H).
  • ◄14► Drugs that Mirjana possibly brought in from Sarajevo (the national capital of B&H).
  • ◄15► Note that of all six alleged Marian apparitionaries not a one has managed a “religious vocation” to become a monk, nun, friar, sister or priest but they live today as “religious superstars” owning local tourism-related businesses in Međugorje (the clearest imabinable appearance of a conflict of interest) living all kinds of celebrity-type lifestyles, and at one point the naughty OFM pilgrimeers who owed their profits to the also naughty “children” (actually tweens and teens at their youngest) began to distance themselves from the alleged but so consistently inconsistent and dissatisfying alleged Marian apparitionaries, even as these same friars had long before (in a fit of irony which E. Michael Jones calls out in a quote above) severed themselves from the Church’s rules and authority to whom they presumably owe their we must point out severely jeopardized hope for final and eternal redemption.
  • ◄16► Podbrdo Hill not to be confused with Crnica Hill a.k.a. “Apparition Hill” in the hamlet of Bijakovići nor with Križevac or Cross Mountain.
  • ◄17► Think Pharaoh’s priests duplicating the miracles YHWH worked through Moses.
  • ◄18► Note that the ceremony of organized crime is patterned after the ritual of Roman Catholic religion and hierarchy, which may help explain why subliminally the Franciscans’ partnership with organized crime may be said to substitute for submission to Holy Mother Church.
  • ◄19► “Politicizing the Virgin Mary: The Instance of the Madonna of Medjugorje” in Skeptical Inquirer, 8 February 2015.
  • ◄20► Vicka is the purported apparitionary whose “apparition diary” (allegedly, like Ivan [Dragičević]’s, containing the Blessed Virgin Mary’s earthly life story though admittedly partially written by Vicka’s sister Ivanka) when investigated together with the Chronicle was found not only to be anachronistic as were Vlašić’s Chronicle but also partially forged presumably by Vlašić.
  • ◄21► Which I guess also supposedly excused the OFM priests’ flagrant disobedience by MeđugorjeLogic™◄29►?
  • ◄22► Apparently Thelema-themed?
  • ◄23► “Speeded up”: note the same cultishly chronic misspelling in John Leary (an unabashed devotee of the “angel” Meridia, see the succubus [i.e. demoness] Meridiana)’s interminable Vlašić-ese.
  • ◄24► Medgeheads exhibit just this amazing legacy of vandalism and violence to a genocidal extreme (though interestingly Judai$m [Talmudism rather] never finds itself in their cross hairs), probably because they’re a fascist mafia as all the local Serbs (largely Eastern Orthodox Christian and using the Cyrillic alphabet, contrasted with the Croats’ Roman Catholic form of Christianity and Latin alphabet) and Muslims know only too well.
  • ◄25► The kidnapping prompted a UN intervention. Wikipedia (which does have an approval process contrary to smug tenured tropes) refers to the incident as the final stage of the so-called Herzegovina Affair: “On 2 April 1995, Bishop Ratko, along with his secretary, was abducted and beaten by members of a Croat separatist militia at a local [OFM] chapel. They were held for eight hours until rescued by UN peacekeepers and the Mayor of Mostar. The abduction was retaliation for Perić’s intention to replace the [OFMs] with diocesan priests in several parishes as well because of his criticism of the unconfirmed Marian apparitions, mother of Jesus in Medjugorje. He was released only after the intervention from the Mayor of Mostar and UNPROFOR [i.e. the UN Protection Force]”.
  • ◄26► This blogger is still searching for an exact quote (whether within the alleged apparition-locution or in a 1980s-or-sooner grimoire or occult manual) or a date for the red-flag alleged apparition-locution mentioned above (mentioned without sources by the scholarly but also tenacious E. Michael Jones) or the date of the conclusion of the local bishop’s commission. Any source or context for this will me of utmost benefit to the cause of upsetting what is clearly an elaborate system of falsehood and wrongness behind the Međugorje devotions.
  • ◄27► Term deep state used advisedly and non-Trumpianly.
  • ◄28► The Luciferian-Enlightened™◄29► Solomon of Roman Catholicism?
  • ◄29► Not a real trademark to this blogger’s knowledge.
  • ◄30► The Blessed Virgin Mary or the Gospa as the initially tween- and teen-aged “children” generally call her, which is Croatian for “Lady”.
  • ◄31► The OFM certainly flexed its muscles in the Lourdes–Immaculate Conception push of the nineteenth century at which time it was a matter of controversy and certainly not one of sensus ecclesiæ (see Saint Thomas Aquinas, another Doctor of the Church).
  • ◄32► Similar also to the Legion of Christ (Cotija, United States of Mexico) and Saint Irenæus Ministries (Rochester, New York, USA), the former indulging, like the purported apparitionaries in Međugorje, in bashing bishops and in sneaking around the Church authorities, forever sneaking and lying, sneaking and lying, sneaking and lying, until they finally go to hell.
  • ◄33► Jesuits have their own style of herding the sheeple that differs from the Franciscans which they view as their beta version.
  • ◄34► For that matter, these “no-nonsense exorcists” won’t bite the hand that feeds them by denouncing or delivering the manifestly (Pachamama) idolatrous Vatican itself, for it’s difficult to say whether today’s Međugorje or today’s Rome is more of a slap in the face to the name of Francis, to say nothing of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
