The Judas Complex and Pope Francis

NOTE:  I have corrected the missing link to The Mystery of Iniquity, which now works, thank you.

The following is from 2016 and has not been updated. Back then,  it was newsworthy to discover that the Vicar of Christ appears to have a tender devotion to Judas. Well, that’s old hat now, isn’t it? I offer this for a bit of nostalgia as we continue to sink into the subterranean depths of this Bergoglian Reformation.

Fom April, 2016:

Odd, isn’t it that Pope Francis has such a tender spot for Judas the betrayer of Christ?

In Monday’s  homily at Msgr. Ricca’s humble abode, Pope Francis opined, “It hurts when I read that small passage from the Gospel of Matthew, when Judas, who has repented, goes to the priests and says: ‘I have sinned’ and wants to give … and gives them the coins. ‘Who cares! – they say to him: it’s none of our business!’ They closed their hearts before this poor, repentant man, who did not know what to do. And he went and hanged himself.” (Vatican Radio) [Note: Pope Francis really did call Judas a “poor, repentant man” !]

To Francis, Judas “repented”, even though Judas never acknowledged his sin to Jesus Christ, who is the One whom he offended. For Francis, Judas’s worldly regret expressed to the “doctors of the law” was sufficient, ignoring Jesus entirely. Odd that this Vicar of Christ seems not to understand that the victim of every sin is Jesus Christ and reparation must be to Him.

So, Pope Francis teaches us, Judas was “this poor, repentant man”. Thus, once again Pope Francis is greater in mercy than Our Lord Jesus Christ, who prayed to His Father, shortly before Judas betrayed Him, “While I was with them, I kept them in Thy name. Those whom Thou gavest me have I kept; and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition, that the scripture may be fulfilled. (John 17, 12)

The Judas Complex

Thinking on this strange Pope’s even stranger affinity for Judas recalled to mind Father Malachi Martin’s writing about the Judas Complex among the Modernist Churchmen who infest the Church. His 1990 book, “The Keys of This Blood”,  has a final portion titled “Coda, the Protocol of Salvation” which contains a fascinating analysis of the precise situation in which we find ourselves today, under a pope who asserts himself as more merciful and practical than Jesus Christ, whom he insists he represents. Indeed, as he himself reminds us, he is  “by the will of Christ Himself – the supreme Pastor and Teacher of all the faithful”. And that he enjoys, “supreme, full, immediate, and universal ordinary power in the Church”.

Cardinal Manning on Bergoglio’s Reformation

Previously Posted on  October 19, 2016
This is a long post, but thank you for reading- it is necessary to review this in order to  understand the importance of what is occurring now. Never before in Church history has the declared and accepted Vicar of Christ promoted such destructive policies against our Lord Jesus Christ. As in St. John Bosco’s Vision of the Two Pillars, the Barque of Peter has become unmoored and has entered into dangerous waters. Since posting this earlier today, please note that new material has been added. Please take some time to prayerfully consider:

Long before Cardinals Danneels, Marx and Kasper got their man, Bergoglio in the See of Peter, a holy Cardinal in England, a convert actually, foretold much of what we are now seeing. Cardinal Henry Edward Manning in “The Present Crisis in the Holy See”,  warned of a grave crisis facing the Church. The book’s four chapters, “The Progress of the Mystery of Iniquity, the Antichrist, What Holds Back the Antichrist  and The Apostasy of Rome“, are a solemn warning to the Church for these times.

Francis and Francis, A Prophecy?

The first Francis, St. Francis of Assisi was an enigma to the world which he utterly rejected. The second Francis, born Jorge Bergoglio and hailed as Pope Francis is embraced by the world and acclaimed as a modern day saint by that very world he so skillfully courts.

The first Francis, St. Francis of Assisi, took to heart Our Lord’s command in the Gospel, “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.” (Matthew 16, 24). Although even his own followers at times rejected the severity of St. Francis’s insistence on following Christ with total poverty, for St. Francis it was simply a matter of total trust in Our Lord Jesus Christ. A beautiful saying of St. Francis inspires us still, “May I die, O Lord, through love of Thee, Who through love of me didst not disdain to die!”  On 3 October, 1226, two years after being blessed with the suffering of the stigmata, his desire was fulfilled and he entered into complete union with his Beloved.

Shortly before he died, St. Francis of Assisi called together his followers and warned them of the troubles to come in the future, saying:

“The time is fast approaching in which there will be great trials and afflictions; perplexities and dissensions, both spiritual and temporal, will abound; the charity of many will grow cold, and the malice of the wicked will increaseThe devils will have unusual power, the immaculate purity of our Order, and of others, will be so much obscured that there will be very few Christians who will obey the true Sovereign Pontiff and the Roman Church with loyal hearts and perfect charity. At the time of this tribulation a man, not canonically elected, will be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his cunning, will endeavor to draw many into error and death.

“Then scandals will be multiplied, our Order will be divided, and many others will be entirely destroyed, because they will consent to error instead of opposing it. There will be such diversity of opinions and schisms among the people, the religious and the clergy, that, except those days were shortened, according to the words of the Gospel, even the elect would be led into error, were they not specially guided, amid such great confusion, by the immense mercy of God.

“Then our Rule and manner of life will be violently opposed by some, and terrible trials will come upon us. Those who are found faithful will receive the crown of life; but woe to those who, trusting solely in their Order, shall fall into tepidity, for they will not be able to support the temptations permitted for the proving of the elect.

“Those who preserve in their fervor and adhere to virtue with love and zeal for the truth, will suffer injuries and persecutions as rebels and schismatics; for their persecutors, urged on by the evil spirits, will say they are rendering a great service to God by destroying such pestilent men from the face of the earth. but the Lord will be the refuge of the afflicted, and will save all who trust in Him. And in order to be like their Head, [Christ] these, the elect, will act with confidence, and by their death will purchase for themselves eternal life; choosing to obey God rather than man, they will fear nothing, and they will prefer to perish rather than consent to falsehood and perfidy.

“Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it under foot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true pastor but a destroyer.” (From The Works of the Seraphic Father, Washbourne, 1882, available online:

The second Francis, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Pope Francis, has already been canonized by the world media, both secular and ostensibly Catholic for his “poverty” and “mercy”. in fact Elton John has already facetiously called for Pope Francis to be canonized for his “compassion”.  Although this latter-day Francis speaks often about mercy, he has brutally suppressed the Franciscans of the Immaculate, who are truly following the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi’s order. And although he speaks often about poverty, he leaves his many worldly followers in the utmost  poverty by failing to  provide them with the Spiritual food they need to nurture their eternal souls. “For what doth it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his own soul? Or what exchange shall a man give for his soul?” (Matthew 16, 26)

What do you think? Is the prophecy of St. Francis a foretelling of these days, of this Pope? Many of us are suspecting the worst, but in any event we may have our answer by the next Synod in October this year, 98 years after the last appearance of Our Lady of the Rosary at Fatima. May St. Francis of Assisi bless Pope Francis that he repent and be converted.

Pray the Rosary and confound satan!

Remember – Our Lady needs us to obey:  First Saturdays of Reparation, daily rosary, at least 5 mysteries, wear her brown scapular and live your Total Consecration to her Immaculate Heart, offering daily duties in reparation and for the conversion of poor sinners.
