Some necessary reading

Necessary reads today..

At National Catholic Register…  Ed Pentin’s piece “‘Great Reset’ Plan Parallels Some of Pope’s Initiatives — But There’s a Crucial Difference”.

Lot’s of links in that.  And a description of the Great Reset.

The Great Reset.  The concept makes my flesh crawl in a “signs of the times” sort of way.

Come!  Lord Jesus!

At Crisis, there are two pieces, one by Janet Smith and one by Eric Sammons.  No, wait, three pieces.  There is also a good piece about the need to restore the minor orders by Bp. Athanasius Schneider.  HERE

About the undersigned, you might want to check out a piece by Fr. Finigan and another by Fr. Hunwicke.

About Fr. John Zuhlsdorf

    Fr Tim Finigan’s, “On the Cancellation of Father Zuhlsdorf”, is an outstanding piece of writing. He puts the whole unjust attack on you, Father Z, in a nutshell, whilst demonstrating the great contribution you have made to your huge extended flock all over the world. Chapeau, Father Tim!

    Fr John Hunwicke’s piece is excellent too, written in his usual stylish and insightful manner.

    And then there is this one, “In Defence of the Great Father Z”, where both the above posts were included in the article:

    These pieces all appear to come from England, but I’m sure there are others too from around the world. It’s good to know you have so many loyal followers on the Catholic blogosphere Father.

  2. Eccles has come to your defense as only he can, with A Man for All Zuhlsdorfs…

    An interesting perspective regarding the ‘Great Reset’ from Jimmy Akin:

    Ed was a little more gracious on subject than I would have been.
    Then again, he is a pro and I am not.

    Edward Pentin is a fine reporter and worth reading. Though as commenter monstrance points out above graciousness can be overdone. That the current Vatican’s “vision is anchored in God’s grace” (which may have been the editor instead of Pentin) is a dubious proposition.

    From the child-sacrificing Pachamama to an ancient Egyptian and Sumerian “Nativity Scene,” from Querida Amazonia to Fratelli Tutti, most, but not all, of the Vatican hierarchy is inspired by Davos Man more than by Jesus Christ.

    “Davos Man” (referring to the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland) was popularized in Samuel Huntington’s 2004 essay “Dead Souls: The Denationalization of the American Elite.” An excerpt:

    “The rewards of an increasingly integrated global economy have brought forth a new global elite. Labeled ‘Davos Men’, ‘gold-collar workers’ or ‘cosmocrats’, this emerging class is empowered by new notions of global connectedness. It includes academics, international civil servants and executives in global companies, as well as successful high-technology entrepreneurs [it also includes the Vatican hierarchy and their collaboration with Jeffrey Sachs, Liliane Plouman and others].”

    Two previous posts:

    Archbp. Chaput responds to Jesuit Fr. Antonio “2+2=5” Spadaro and La Civiltà Cattolica

    Another example of Davos Man. Several days ago a 2019 video of John Kerry resurfaced. Kerry is now the “Climate Czar” of the Installed Regime in the Kremlin on the Potomac. Back in 2019 Kerry flew on a private jet to Iceland to get the Arctic Circle Climate Award (the Award is reportedly shaped like an iceberg). A reporter asked Kerry if the private jet was the “environmental way to travel.” Kerry replied, “It’s the only choice for someone like me.”

    Davos Man (relax feminazis, it refers to both males and females), can be found in the Vatican and in UN Headquarters in New York and in the Installed Regime in Washington DC and in EU Headquarters in Brussels.

    The boundless ambition and rage of Davos Man recalls this scene in The Devil’s Advocate, with Al Pacino as the Devil and the lawyer Keanu Reeves as “Davos Man”:

    Thus, globalist utopians and the “Great Reset,” the Vatican’s “Our Guardians,” the Installed Regime in Washington DC plotting a war on Christianity, Judaism and American citizens. It’s the same old story and here we are again.

    Abraham Lincoln:

    “We all declare for liberty; but in using the same word we do not all mean the same thing. With some the word liberty may mean for each man to do as he pleases with himself, and the product of his labor; while with others the same word may mean for some men [the hyperactive and power-hungry Davos Men] to do as they please with other men, and the product of other men’s labor. Here are two, not only different, but incompatable things, called by the same name—liberty. And it follows that each of the things is, by the respective parties, called by two different and incompatable names—liberty and tyranny.”

    Our present predicament is unsustainable. There is Liberty under God and Tyranny under the Vanity of Davos Men. Blessed be the name of the Lord.

    Dear Father,

    These well written pieces really enlightened me. I was not aware of much of it. Maybe it means I need to get out more, but I like to think that it means I’ve just been trying to read the ‘good stuff’, like your blog.

    I remember reading here that a priest had told you you’d lost your mojo (whatever that is, you said) but the thought of what it might mean stuck with you a bit. I didn’t find you complaining though, just figuring out ways to keep moving forward.

    After reading these pieces and the liberal furor you caused, I think I can safely say, you haven’t lost your mojo (whatever that is, you may be thinking).

    You give me hope, Father; a very rare thing these days. You also make me laugh with your quick wit. I consider your blog a resource for Truth. We must find and know our resources and be sure to consistently use them. Thanks for being that for so many.

    God bless Fr. Finigan and Fr. Hunwicke.

    May “c”atholics everywhere, be they Socialist laity, Modernist clergy or the Vatican II fetishists, Davos zealots and Pachamama cultists inhabiting the Vatican today, return to the Catholic faith.
