George Weigel Endorses Abraham Heschel’s Hermetic/Kabbalistic Gnosis

April 29, 2010

“Go to any bookstore in North America today and you’ll likely find a large section on “spirituality,” in which there are large numbers of books about “our search for God.”

“But there is wisdom in the title the late, great Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel gave to one of his books: God in Search of Man. Biblical religion – faith in the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Jesus – is not about “spirituality,” and it’s not about our search for God. The God of the Bible comes to search for us, and asks us to take the same path through history that he is taking.” (George Weigel, April 15, 2010)

Am I reading unintended Hermeticism into Heschel? I think he made himself very clear:

“This outlook provides the foundation for the study of the teachings of the Kabbalah. In many places in the Zohar you will find the statement that the Holy and Blessed one created this world on the model of the world above: ‘Everything that exists above is replicated below'(Zohar Pekudei 221a). In the opinion of the sages, the people brought with them from Babylonia the names of the angels. But we have not yet been able to discover the source of the [non-biblical] concept of the parallelism of the world above and the world below.” (Abraham Joshua Heschel, Gordon Tucker, Heavenly Torah: as refracted through the generations, p.266)

NY Archbishop Dolan: "The Holocaust" "Demands" "Memory," "To Forget is Heretical"

April 27, 2010

When is the last time you heard a modern prelate mention the term, heresy, in its proper context, in relation to the perennial teachings of the Church?

In a recent ceremony commemorating Pope Benedict’s visit to a synagogue during his U.S. visit in 2008, Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York spoke on the importance of Catholic-Jewish relations, stressing that the two must focus on their commonality and work together to preserve the “memory” of the faith.

Archbishop Dolan gave his remarks at the unveiling of a commemorative plaque at Park East Synagogue in New York City on April 22 …

“Both of our traditions reverence memory,” he asserted. “’To forget’ is disastrous, dangerous, and heretical. We both worry about an amnesia that seems a part of today’s existence, to live only for the now, unconscious of our roots, our foundations.”

“It is my hope that in the many years God may give me as Archbishop of New York, our Catholic-Jewish dialogue may be marked by a practice of ‘memory’ which never fails to hold us mutually accountable to the honesty and transparency demanded by the tragedy of the Holocaust, but also to a ‘mutuality’ of concern for each other which places our friendship first, and our grievances second. Our dialogue must never be reduced to one of exchanged grievances.” (“Archbishop Dolan: Catholics and Jews must work to preserve ‘memory’ of faith,” Catholic News Agency, Apr 27, 2010)

In fact, “our dialogue” is an arrangement in which one side “remembers” and expresses its grievances for which it offers no forgiveness while the other makes unending concessions from which even core beliefs are not spared. This is not dialogue and it’s not friendship. It’s enslavement.

Will traditionalists stand against the enslaving modernist dogma of Holocaustolatry which has been enshrined in the Catholic Church?

Senator Chuck "Shomer Yisrael" must be Replaced by a Senator who will "Shomer" the U.S.

April 27, 2010

“My name as you know comes from a Hebrew word. It comes from the word shomer, which means guardian … and I believe Hashem, actually, gave me the name as one of my roles that is very important in the United States Senate, to be a shomer for Israel, and I will continue to be that with every bone in my body.” (US Senator Charles Schumer interviewed by Nachum Segal, Apr 22, 2010)

This is a running theme of Chuck Schumer. He made the same statement in a Florida synagogue during the 2008 presidential campaign among many others that should concern American citizens:

Last year we briefly touched on the meaning of the kabbalistic concept of “Shomer Yisrael” which is one of the names of the strange god of Judaism, Metatron, who the rabbis teach is the “Guardian of Israel,” who protects “Israel” from “Esau” (non-“Jews,” Christians) whose guardian is Satan or “Samael” according to the rabbis (cf. Eisenmenger, The Traditions of the Jews).

Chuck Schumer’s “Shomer” lore should greatly concern the non-Judaic majority that a U.S. senator is obligated to represent. This man is seriously compromised by extreme tribal ideology, mysticism and attachments to a foreign nation hostile to our own.

Vatican II Peritus: Because of "The Holocaust," Church Must Reinterpret Gospel

April 26, 2010

Fr. Gregory Baum, along with Frs. Ratzinger, De Lubac, Schillebeecks and Küng, was a Peritus (theological expert; advisor) at the Vatican II Council. The modernist theology of Auschwitz that he preaches is at least as pernicious as any other modernist error devastating the Church. Who will stand against it?

“… if the Church wants to clear itself of the anti-Jewish trends built into its teaching, a few marginal correctives won’t do. It must examine the very center of its proclamation and reinterpret the meaning of the gospel for our times … It was not until the holocaust of six million Jewish victims that some Christian theologians have been willing to face this question in a radical way … Auschwitz has a message that must be heard: it reveals an illness operative not on the margin of our civilization but at the heart of it, in the very best that we have inherited … It summons us to face up to the negative side of our religious and cultural heritage.” (Gregory Baum, ‘Introduction’, in Rosemary Ruether, Faith and Fratricide: The Theological Roots of Anti-Semitism, p.7)

Bishop Slattery Takes Place of Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos at D.C. Pontifical Latin Mass

April 22, 2010

Bishop Slattery, like Pope Benedict XVI, is hailed by neotraditionalists as a champion of tradition because he says the Novus Ordo Mass ad orientem. Can they be unaware of Bishop Slattery’s Judaizing liturgical alchemy? Or is it that they don’t care?

“There’s nothing in Catholic teaching or law that would prevent a group from having a seder meal to teach the faithful the origins of our own Mass, which comes from the seder.” (Bishop Edward J. Slattery)

In fact, the Haggadah, the liturgy used at seders, began to be formulated in the Talmudic Era, centuries after Christ’s Last Supper. The Haggadah as it exists today–as it is now celebrated in Catholic parishes around the world–dates only to the 13th century A.D. The traditional Mass does not “come from the seder,” although it is accurate to say that parts of the Novus Ordo Mass of 1969 do. I doubt that Bishop Slattery wants this distinction to be known. As we have seen from other modern prelates of high position, including the Pope, they want Catholics to believe that rabbinic tradition is an authentic continuation of the religion of the faithful Israelites of the Bible and for Catholics to involve themselves in these traditions. There could be no worse deception than this, as Pope Innocent IV observed, through the rabbis’ traditions, they render souls utterly alien from the law and the prophets, a fact which was later documented so thoroughly by Johannes Eisenmenger in his masterwork, Entdecktes Judenthum that no defense, other than censorship and ad hominem, has even been attempted against it.

For this rabbi enabler to be offering a traditional Latin Mass in the place of the sex predator enabler, Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos, is no less a scandal. Protect your children, body and soul, from these treacherous men.

Rabbi-Mason Receives Honorary Doctorate from Australian Catholic University

April 20, 2010

The Australian Catholic University today conferred a major award on Rabbi Raymond Apple, the former spiritual leader of Sydney’s Great Synagogue [and Past Grand Chaplain of the United Grand Lodge of New South Wales].

Especially in English-speaking countries, [Freemasonry] has always had a high proportion of eminent Jewish members, including leading rabbis. Among present day Australian rabbis, high masonic office is held by Rabbi Shalom Coleman of Perth, Rabbi Chaim Gutnick of Melbourne and myself in Sydney. Other rabbis and ministers are past masters of their lodges. (“Freemasonry and Judaism are Compatible,” Bro. Rabbi Dr Raymond Apple, AO RFD PJGW Past Grand Chaplain of the United Grand Lodge of New South Wales)

A special award for Rabbi Apple

Catholic prelates have been cozy with the rabbis in Australia since at least the early 1970’s:

The Documentary Record: Bishops and Pope Paul VI Were Warned

April 19, 2010

Following up on the last blog posting, Bishops and Popes Ignored Warnings of Sex Predator Priests, here are documents in which Fr. Gerald Fitzgerald, in his capacity as founder of the Servants of the Paraclete, an order for rehabilitation of alcoholic and pedophile priests, warns numerous bishops and Pope Paul VI of his findings that pedophile priests were not capable of rehabilitation; that if they were returned to parishes they would almost certainly continue sexually abusing children, and his recommendation that they should be laicized and ostracized.

The claim “we didn’t know” is a lie. They’ve known since at least the early 1950’s.

Bishops and Popes Ignored Warnings of Sex Predator Priests

Bishops were warned of abusive priests

Fr. Gerald Fitzgerald, founder of the Servants of the Paracletes, an order established in 1947 to deal with problem priests, wrote regularly to bishops in the United States and to Vatican officials, including the pope, of his [well informed] opinion that many sexual abusers in the priesthood [could not be rehabilitated and] should be laicized immediately.
