PREGNANCY HELP, POPE, PM, PREVARICATING BUT NOT THE NEW POLITICAL PARTY

Image may contain: text



"Why," Mike Hosking asked the Prime Minister this morning, "are there cruise ships in Auckland Harbour?"

"That is untrue," said the Prime Minister. "We have already barred cruise ships."


"Prime Minister, I'm looking out the window right now, and there are cruise ships in the harbour."


"We have barred cruise ships," replied the Prime Minister; "we have barred cruise ships."


But if you'd looked out the window yesterday, reports the NZ Herald, you'd have seen the Noordam and the Azamara there in the harbour. 

One has to wonder if Ardern has lost the plot. The facts are that yes, the government had indeed barred cruise ships from entering NZ waters, but the Noordam and Azamara beat them to it; they were already here.


So why did Ardern "flat-out deny" what Hosking could see from his window? She and her gummint have locked New Zealand up and thrown away the key. All to stop one old lady dying in Greymouth. Ardern et Al are acting like they're scared witless.


The death toll above shows us reality. The world is sick as a dog, but not with coronavirus. The world is sick with fear; scared witless of dying..


Just as the Prime Minister denies the fact of two ships in Auckland harbour, so does she and her gummint implicitly deny the fact that deaths from coronavirus are a fraction of those from influenza and a mere blip in comparison with deaths from abortion. 


They also deny the proven, demonstrable fact that the unborn child is a human being. 


This is prevarication of the first water. It's all about avoiding the truth.


For instance, Pregnancy Help is all about coming to the aid of the unborn and their mothers - isn't it?

That's what I believed, until our local branch of Voice for Life (Central Hawke's Bay) decided to donate to PH. But first I sought an assurance from the local front person that Pregnancy Help would never refer a woman for an abortion. She gave me two A4 pages of bumff in which the word 'abortion' was not mentioned. No such assurance was forthcoming, and without that assurance, VFL CHB could not donate.


Yesterday a veteran pro-life advocate forwarded me an email from Pregnancy Help asking him to remove their address from his contacts. Evidently they wanted no more of his pro-life data. Pregnancy Help National stated that:


"Our policy is that clients considering abortion should be provided information about appropriate counseling options ... Information about the process of abortion etc is not to be provided ... We are respectful of people making their own choices (whatever choice that might be)."

Enough said. 

What sort of abortion counselling is it that prevents informed consent by not giving information on its harmful mental, physical and spiritual outcomes? You'd think NZ prolifers would be loathe to contribute to a platform which refuses to inform women on the effects of abortion - that it means murdering their own child and living with the consequences for the rest of their lives.

The same veteran pro-lifer belongs to the New Conservative Party. He says his "telecanvassing" in the last couple of weeks shows support for the New Conservatives in one out of every seven “conversations”, by which he means phone calls where someone answers.
"One in seven equals 14%", he says. "So if every voter who shares New Conservative’s values/principles gave their party vote to NC, we’d get 14%. But so many who are aligned with us worry about wasting their vote, and so their worry becomes self-fulfilling.

"I’m gonna try to make this point from now on during “conversations”.

So in the interests of increasing the prolife vote and tipping "kind" Jacinda out office, here's the latest New Conservative press release: 
"


PRESS RELEASE
18 March 2020
The Mortal End of a Kind of Kind Government
Dismembering a live baby with or without sedation can never be classified as kind.

Brutal?  Yes.

Repugnant?  Yes.

Inhumane?  Yes.

Kind?  No!

Leaving a living baby to die on a cold stainless steel bench does not qualify as kind either, yet this government has rejected medical treatment for abortion survivors. Even after birth!

New Conservative has committed to repeal of this repulsive, anti-child policy being a condition of any coalition agreement formed after September 19th, and would require a binding referendum so that New Zealand gets a say on how our most vulnerable citizens are treated.
“Allowing a conscience vote on a policy like abortion is undemocratic. Politicians are elected to represent us, not rule over us, dictate to us, or micromanage us,” says New Conservative leader Leighton Baker.

"When Government ministers proclaim discomfort at being shown images of what they are seek to legitimise, it proves they are disconnected from reality and society.

"Abortion kills babies.
“New Conservative is the party of binding referenda, the party committed to giving the citizens of New Zealand a voice between elections," concludes Baker.

"It is time for New Zealand's elected dictatorships to stop, and for all life to be respected.”

And hey, what about "kind" Aunty Ardern allowing abortions to continue as an "essential service"? A leading US OB-GYN dispelled myths about abortions being “essential” health care this week.
Dr. Christina Francis, who practises in Indiana and chairs the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians & Gynecologists, said doctors across the country are postponing medical procedures to conserve resources and protect patients from the coronavirus.
But abortion facilities, which primarily do elective abortions, are continuing their life-destroying business as usual.



Same here! And for those who look to the UN and the World Health Organisation for a reality check, last week the UN set out a $2B spending plan that puts abortion front and center of food and health security. Shame.

https://c-fam.org/friday_fax/abortion-essential-in-uns-2b-covid-19-funding-plan/

In these surreal days of coronaphobia, we look to our Mother, the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, for the truth.

And what do we see? The Head of the Mystical Body of Christ, the Pope, has dropped his title of "Vicar of Christ" from the 2020 Pontifical Year Book of the Holy See, relegating it to a footnote, deprecating it as an "historical title".

Previous Pontifical Year Books have stated "Vicar of Christ" over and above the name of the incumbent pope. In 2020 however, we see just the name "Jorge Mario Bergoglio".

Usually, the presentation of the Church's hierarchy – Cardinals, bishops and the Vatican's dicasteries – starts with the Pontiff, under the title “Vicar of Jesus Christ” (“Vicario di Gesù Cristo”), which “stems from Holy Scripture, in which Jesus granted St. Peter the power of the keys in the Church.” 

Cardinal Gerhard Muller calls the change "theological barbarianism" and "an embarrassment". The title "Vicar of Christ" stems from Holy Scripture, in which Jesus granted St. Peter the power of the keys in the Church.

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/pope-francis-drops-vicar-of-christ-title-in-vatican-yearbook1,097

Barbaric it may be, and embarrassed we may be, not only by the latest prevarications from the Vatican but also by the latest from our Prime Minister on "Covid-19" on the nightly TvOne news - which would be laughable if it weren't so horrible - we take refuge in God, who will not allow evil to prevail.

In his sermon today from St Anthony Whanganui's Priory - and please, Father, slow your delivery down so that dimwits like moi can keep up - Father Francois Laisney SSPX reminded us that God is Justice and Mercy. 

Our sufferings - like the Covid-19 terror, and the ravages inflicted on the Church by this pontificate - are a consequence of sin, and we must repair for our sins, be instruments of mercy for others.  (If Justice comes, can Mercy be far behind?)

By offering ourselves to God in reparation for sin, we will participate in God's victory over sin, in His Death and Resurrection, says Fr Laisney:

"... So that our children and and grandchildren will enjoy the fruits of that suffering in Heaven."

COMPARING PRIESTS AND SUPERMARKET WORKERS

To comment please open your gmail account if possible, use my email address, Facebook Messenger or Twitter. Scroll down for comments.




"Covid-19," says Sharon Crooks of Palmerston North, "makes the supermarket worker seem not only braver than the Bishops and priests of the Catholic Church, but filled with far more charity too.

"While the checkout-operator and shelf-stacker demonstrate love for their neighbour, ensuring food for the hungry, the Bishop instructs his priests to lock the church and starve their flock."


Comparisons are odious, of course. And one has to consider that check-out operators are paid to do their job - but bishops and priests are, too.

One might add that with NZ Listener, Women's Day and Sky City employees all out of a job, check-out operators are probably only too happy to go to work.

Bishops and priests also, surely, should be only too happy to go to work, saving souls. But they know their Employer will never go out of business.

They know their jobs are safe.

"For we, O Lord, are diminished more than any nation, and are brought low in all the earth this day for our sins. Neither is there at this time prince, or leader, or prophet, or holocaust, or sacrifice, or oblation, or incense, of place of first-fruits before Thee, that we may find Thy mercy" (Dan 3:15).

PROMOTING PANIC, SELLING SAUSAGES, SAVING SOULS


To comment please open your gmail account if possible or use my email address, Facebook, Messenger or Twitter. Scroll down for other comments.



A Muslim butcher can open his shop to sell sausages, but a Catholic priest can't open his church to save souls. On Easter Sunday.

As of now, that seems to be the plight of our nation as plotted by this evil Government and connived at by the Catholic Church.

Seems that the halal butchers got to be reconsidered by our 'kind' Prime Minister because they put up a very strong case for being an "essential business".

But as Fr Francois Laisney SSPX has commented in one of his sermons live-streamed daily from St Anthony's Priory Whanganui, "To say that the Church is non-essential is against the Faith. The worship of God is the first duty of man. He describes the closure of churches as 'persecution'."

And remember that in this crazy country, abortion is 'an essential business'.

So how about it, dear bishops? What's the likelihood of making a very strong case for opening our churches as an essential business, saving people for eternal life, not just for this one which is just a blip in comparison - for the greatest festival of the Christian year?

Well, they say miracles do happen. Let's pray. Preferably in public spaces, like outside churches seeing we're not allowed in, with our rosary in hand and perhaps a candle - although the latter's not likely to stay alight in Palmy.

In contrast to the halal butchers, the Catholic Church remains mute, seemingly muzzled like an attack dog, not by her owner who is God Himself, but by fear.

"Fear is not in charity: but perfect charity casteth out fear, because fear hath pain. And he that feareth, is not perfected in charity" (1 Jn 4:18). That means, perfect love casts out human fear - fear of viruses, for example - but certainly not fear of God's judgments.

Which is why the NZ bishops' crackdown on public Masses is wrong twice over. They fear a virus which kills bodies but seem not to fear God's judgment on the preposterous proposal that His people not celebrate the Passion, Death and Resurrection of His Beloved Son. 

Was it also fear of upsetting the Government which induced them to crack down on public Masses - our best means of reparation and repentance - just two days after same Government authorised a holocaust of unborn babies?

They may fear upsetting Novus Ordo Catholics, aka the Church of Nice, who by and large are a bunch of conformists ('a Church of Sixes' according to people who know the Enneagram).

We must make an exception for Fr Joe Grayland, the brave priest at Our Lady of Lourdes, Palmerston North who popped out of his presbytery (illegally, going by his own bishops' mandate) to order a praying parishioner off the premises. 

Perhaps unfortunately for Fr Grayland, the parishioner was not a compliant NO Catholic but a Latin Mass adherent who is not so easily pushed around.

Bishop Athanasius Schneider of Kazakhstan says that "any priest, using discretion and following the necessary health precautions “has not to obey the directives of his bishop or the government to suspend Mass for the faithful.” 

Bishop Schneider described the COVID-19 pandemic as "a chastisement and a purification." 


WOT??? What an extraordinary idea! We NO Catholics don't believe that, do we? For years, Sunday after Sunday, Father has told us that God doesn't punish. No wonder we Kiwis are "smiling zombies, lazy and smug", as Gordon MacLauchlan put it. But for Catholics who believe in God, Covid-19 proves otherwise. If you believe God exists, you must believe that God is either permitting Covid-19, or willing it as punishment.

And don't say, "What for?" For the four sins that cry out to God for vengeance, for a start:
  • murder (e.g. abortion, which is legal in its most horrible manifestations particularly in New York which is the epicentre of the virus in the US - and in NZ legalised just two days before the bishops cancelled public Mass, and also in 'Catholic' countries like Italy and Spain)
  • sodomy (promoted by the World Health Organisation's dissemination of LGBTQ propaganda) and freely practised by many priests and highly-placed prelates in the Catholic Church, notably within the Vatican
  • oppression of the poor - rampant always; "The poor are always with us"(Mt 26:11) 
  • depriving workers of their just wages (ditto)
Pope St Pius X stated that these sins "provoke God to the severest punishments". Evils like pestilence (e.g. Covid-19) are an effect of sin, either original or actual; all natural disasters including Covid-19 are attributable to God's displeasure and not, as Pope Francis in his latest outburst has stated, "to nature having a fit". (1)Neither are they, as Leonardo Boff, theologian, laicised priest and evident idolater claims, "a reprisal from Gaia" (the South American goddess, Earth) "for the offences we inflict on her".

Which brings me to idolatry in the Vatican, where Boff's chum Pope Francis looked on benignly as worshippers bowed down to the Amazonian goddess, Pachamama, desecrating the nearby tombs of martyrs and the Church of St Peter by placing her before the high altar, on October 4. 

The Pope broke the First Commandment. In St Peter's. Should we wonder why Covid-19 soon followed?  

Then there's the profanation of Holy Communion by allowing reception by divorced and 'remarried' Catholics, foisted on the Church through the back door of Amoris Laetitia.

"Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of profaning the body and blood of the Lord. Let a man examine himself, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For any one who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment upon himself" (1Cor 11,27-29) [6]. 

Quite apart from adulterous couples profaning the Most Holy Eucharist, think of the millions of Catholics worldwide who front up for Communion without the Sacrament of Confession, which is required for mortal sin, and which in NZ at least seems to be a thing of the past? And it's not only the communicant but the Minister of Communion who by canon law is held gravely responsible for this most serious sin.

Bishop Schneider points to the sinister implications in relation to Covid-19 for the verse following the one just cited: "Therefore are many weak and ill among you, and many have died" (ibid, 30).

Does that not send a chill up your spine, dear bishops? And yours, dear Ministers of Communion'?

On the other hand, St John Eudes observes that "the most evident mark of God's anger and the most terrible castigation he can inflict is when He permits His people to fall into the hands of clergy who are priests more in name than deed, who practise the cruelty of ravening wolves rather than charity and the affection of devoted shepherds.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Df6iIuaFmDA

Our shepherds are hidden away from this plague in their presbyteries; our chief Shepherd will evince his charity and affection from the safe 'social distance' of the Balcony of St Peter's.

Oh, but he's an old man so he's more vulnerable. Yes, most the clergy are old - and they're afraid of death? A holy old man - like one I know well, and like St Paul - longs to die and "be with the Lord, which is far better"(Phil 1:23).

"When God permits such things" (ravening wolves in shepherd's clothing), Bishop Schneider says, "He is thoroughly angry with His people and is visiting His most dreadful anger upon them. 

"We (the Church) have pushed God away, and so we also push His protection away. The devil is the prince of this world. God permits him to do harm only to bring good out of evil."

+Schneider reminds us that God is closest to us in suffering. He speaks of clandestine Masses, no doubt remembering his childhood in the Soviet Union where his family went 100 miles by train for Sunday Mass. He reminds priests, who are privileged to receive Communion, or the faithful who can receive only spiritually, to do so on behalf of all those who can't or won't or don't know now.

He reminds the 'God doesn't punish' brigade of non-believers that  God sent a plague on Israel (2 Sam 24, 15). 70,000 Israelites died because David had failed to trust in the Lord. Doesn't this tell us that God punishes people for the sins of the leaders they themselves have chosen? Transfer that story of God's justice to this day (God doesn't change) and who can say the sins of leaders like the Pope and our Prime Minister are not being visited on the world through Covid-19?

But the terrible irony is, the same leaders are asking for more punishment by blaming the Covid-19 fiasco not on the sin of sacrilege against God, but on sin against 'Mother Earth', which is idolatry (the Pope) and closing down the economy (Ardern).

"Do we know enough to justify the massive measures that violate human rights in our free democratic society?" asks Professor Doctor Sucharit Bhakdi of  Germany, who has devoted his life to researching the pathogenesis, diagnosis and therapy of infectious diseases. He says:
  • there is no reason to panic
  • it is essential to differentiate between infection and disease
  • infection must not be equated with illness
  • the danger of equating infection with illness  must be obvious as the daily record of infections is indeed exponential
  • Infection cannot serve as the basis for projections on possible burden of medical care
  • we need numbers of genuine Covid-19 cases to arrive at a sensible prediction
  • implementation of draconian infringements on human rights can only be justified by an exceptionally dangerous virus
  • There is no scientific evidence to support this contention for Covid-19
  • Covid-19 does not differ in danger from its everyday relative
  • Covid is more dangerous than everyday viruses but nothing points to it being much, much more dangerous
  • it is not deadly, like SARS or MERS or like the flu virus two years back 
  • two years ago there were 20,000 flu deaths in Germany but no stringent corrective measures were taken because the health system was adequate to cope
  • if the virus has already spread to the general population, any attempts to halt its further spread are senseless
  • the terrible world-wide error is, whenever Covid-19 is detected in a deceased it's automatically assigned as the cause of death and enters the awful list of corona-dead
  • this violates a basic principle of medicine: it must be established that a person dies of Covid-19,not just with it - did the old lady in Greymouth die of Covid-19, or with it (she suffered from COPD)
  • this principle is  not heeded in the case of Covid-19, making it impossible to differentiate between virus as the cause of death and virus accidentally present at death
  • the simple and trivial presence of the virus must never be interpreted as the cause of death
  • reports from Italy, Spain etc must not be the basis for our own measures
  • our people need have no fear that a similar scenario threatens our economy
  • a return to normality is desperately needed
  • many of Prof Dr Bhakdi's colleagues in Germany have openly stated similar views
  • one of the most renowned and acknowledged experts in the field, Prof John Ioannides of Stanford, has done so
  • can the present curtailment of human rights be legally justified?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rwb5QzJY2-s&feature=youtu.be
Pandemics like COVID-19 occur when there is no herd immunity and no vaccine. It’s similar to the situation in 2003 when another new coronavirus - SARS - emerged from China.

Following the SARS pandemic, our Ministry of 'Health' produced a
plan. All contacts had to be tracked and anyone not needing hospital care was to “be isolated at home or in some other suitable facility. Household members were to be relocated away from anyone infected. If that was not possible, they were to minimise contact, with daily follow up by public health officials.

Why was the plan not enacted when WHO declared a pandemic on 12 March? Why did the Government decide not to isolate the
ten cases in New Zealand at the time? 


The fatality rate of Covid-19 in Wuhan is between 0.04 percent and 0.12 percent - lower than the seasonal flu at 0.1 percent. 
The fatality rate for the virus in the UK is around 0.002 percent, far lower than the seasonal flu.


German immunologist and toxicologist Professor Stefan Hockertz concurs with Dr Bhakdi: most so-called ‘corona deaths’ have other causes while testing positive for the virus. He says, “Covid-19 is no more dangerous than influenza, but is simply observed much more closely. More dangerous than the virus is the fear and panic created by the media and the ‘authoritarian reaction’ of many governments.”
Muriel Newman <muriel@nzcpr.com

Yep, Ardern has closed NZ down - but China, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore have shown it's possible to contain the disease without destroying the economy: 

  • they rigorously test  
  • isolate people with the virus 
  • meticulously trace contacts
  • require that people practice good hygiene and social distancing
  • wear face masks in public places
  • Patients in a serious condition are treated in isolation hospitals 
  • those with mild symptoms are often housed in makeshift facilities so the family don't catch the disease
  • regular hospitals, patients and staff  are thus protected from cross-infection
  • Singapore and China didn’t let positive patients back into the community 
  • Wuhan created 50,000 hospital beds in two big temporary hospitals for the mild cases
  • Australia, Europe and US send them home
  • .https://www.noted.co.nz/currently/currently-currently/why-singapores-coronavirus-response-worked-and-what-we-can-all-learn

Face masks are deemed essential. All of the countries that are beating the disease have issued face masks which must be worn in public. People here can't buy hand sanitiser, because of overly restrictive health and safety regulations.
Ardern announced “the widest ranging and toughest border restrictions of any country in the world” - but her 'restrictions' were reported by visitors to be a farce. No temperature checks, no explanation of the new requirements, and insufficient details collected to ensure people self-isolated.
The Government’s latest decision to close down the country will cripple the economy. The sharemarket has been in free fall. Wealth is being destroyed. Many Kiwi businesses will not survive. 
muriel@nzcpr.com>

In all of this, let us remember that facts are no substitute for the truth. Statistics are no substitute for the truth. MSM gives us dodgy 'facts' and fake news.

We must live by the Catholic code of canon law which teaches that salus animarum lex suprema. The salvation of souls is the highest law. 

To what purpose are human lives saved, if the souls are eternally lost? 

"And my people, upon whom my name is called, being converted, shall make supplication to me, and seek out my face, and do penance for their most wicked ways: then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sins and will heal their land" 

(2 Chron 7:14).

FORBIDDEN TO PRAY OUTSIDE HER CHURCH (OLOL, PN)

  BOB GILL SAYS:
A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS


COVID-19 GOD'S CHASTISEMENT FOR SIN SO IN-HIS-FACE

"You're stuck, just like we all are."

That, I heard today, was a priest's response to a parishioner who'd asked, in tears, for the Sacrament of Confession. She never asked that priest for Confession again.

A couple of days ago a parishioner at Our Lady of Lourdes, Palmerston North was chased away from the church - where since the 'lockdown' she's gone daily to sit praying outside, to keep the Blessed Sacrament company - by Father Joe Grayland, parish priest at the Cathedral of the Holy Spirit. 

A lay person commented that the woman sitting outside OLOL was "giving a bad example". 

So what's all that about? you ask. What's that got to do with Covid-19, which is all I can think of right now?

It's about loss of faith. Loss of faith especially in the source and summit of our faith, the Blessed Eucharist.It's about apostasy. It's about the Modernist heresies that have permeated the Church throughout the world: vide

"Catholics. Prayer, Belief and Diversity in a Secular Context: A New Zealand Perspective" by J P Grayland (Father Grayland, if you prefer - I do) which gets a plug in the current OLOL newsletter.


"This book offers a narrative of how belief structure and liturgical patterns have changed in parishes over the last fifty years." 

You can say that again, Father. My point entirely. 

"This book is a pastor's reflection on the impact of the contemporary world on what believers believe. ... J. P Grayland explores several of the key forces that are driving changes in beliefs."


In other words, apostasy. "Catholic beliefs" cannot change. The are truth, and truth does not change. "Jesus Christ, yesterday, and today; and the same for ever" (Heb 13;8)

Now at last we get around to Covid-19, and the NZ Bishops'  preposterous response - locking the faithful out of the Mass, our of their churches and even ordering them off their own parish property; ordering their most faithful, the elderly, to neglect their physical and mental health as well as the vigour of their spiritual life, and their most vulnerable, women at risk of harm from violent husbands, by staying indoors. 

Pandemics have always been considered as a means of God's chastisement for the sins of mankind. By means of Covid-19, in New Zealand, the Father even employs His own shepherds to chastise His own flock. And when, in all the course of history, have the sins of mankind, especially in widespread apostasy and heresy in the Mystical Body of Christ, been so in-your-face, O Lord?

Back in 590 AD, the current Pope, Pelagius, was the first victim of a plague - the terrible lues inguinaria - which was widely accepted by Romans as punishment for their immorality. Pelagius was succeeded by Gregory (St Gregory the Great). 

Now, there was a Pope. Immediately he gave a cracker sermon and called on all of Rome to follow him in penance, like the king of Ninive (coincidentally, in the epistle read today by Fr Michael Johnson SSPX in the TLM live-streamed from St Anthony's Whanganui).

“Look around you", proclaimed the Pope. "Behold God’s sword of wrath brandished over the entire population. Sudden death snatches us from the world, scarcely giving us a second of time. At this precise moment, oh – how many are taken up by evil — here all around us — unable even to think about penitence.” 

Pope Gregory led a seven-fold procession of men, women and children all with heads covered in ashes, in funereal silence, bearing the image of the Virgin painted by St Luke to the bridge uniting the city to the Hadrian Mausoleum, when suddenly a celestial choir of angels were heard, singing the Regina Caeli. 

An avenging angel - St Michael the Archangel, naturally - then appeared about the Mausoleum, bearing a sword which dripped blood, and plunged it home into its sheath. The plague was over.

The Third Secret of Fatima reminds us that, calling us to repentance, “an Angel (appeared) with a flaming sword in his left hand; flashing, it gave out flames that looked as though they would set the world on fire; but they died out in contact with the splendor Our Lady radiated towards him from her right hand: pointing to the earth with his right hand, the Angel cried out in a loud voice ‘Penance, Penance, Penance!’”
Now, (I'm sounding like a TVOne reporter) we've heard ever so much about Covid-19 in Northern Italy. Professor Walter Ricciardi, an advisor to Italy’s minister of health, has admitted that only about 12 percent of deaths attributed to the virus were directly caused by the virus: only 12 per cent of death certificates have shown a direct causality from coronavirus, while 88 per cent of patients who have died have at least one pre-morbidity – many had two or three.”

Now, the hardest-hit of the Italian towns in that region was Bergamo, where at least a thousand and probably many more have died during the outbreak. 

It was the Diocese of Bergamo (among others) that had published on its website the following “Prayer to Pachamama,” whose hideous image was idolized during the proceedings of the absurd and scandalous Amazon Synod. Here is the prayer as it appeared on the Diocese of Bergamo’s website (translation by LifeSiteNews):



Pachamama of these places,
drink and eat as much as you like of these offerings,
so that this land may be fruitful.
Pachamama, good Mother
Be propitious! Be propitious!
Let the oxen walk well,
and let them not get tired.
Make the seed taste good,
that nothing bad happen to it,
that frost may not disrupt it,
that it produce good food.
We ask you:
give us everything.
Be propitious! Be propitious!
(Prayer to the Mother Earth of the Inca peoples)
Saint Peter’s Basilica ought to be reconsecrated to remedy an unprecedented sacrilege perpetrated with the approval of Pope Francis himself. Never has there been a spectacle like this in the basilica that stands at the very heart of the Church and is situated over the bones of Saint Peter.

This a massive failure of the virtue of prudence, as Jeff Mirus has so insightfully explained, resulting in irrational decisions by civil authorities: the lockdown of entire countries and bans on public gatherings, except to buy groceries, work in “essential businesses” (sounds familiar?) and use mass transit, thereby defeating the very purpose of this ludicrous attempt at nationwide quarantines. 

These foolish decisions have caused immense damage to the temporal common good and unnecessary suffering on the natural level.
It is one thing to die from the effects of the coronavirus, quite another to die with the virus. Let’s say you are 87 years old, diabetic, with congestive heart failure and emphysema. You are infected with the coronavirus, get sick, and die. Did you die from it, or merely with it? 

Dr. John Lee, a retired professor of pathology in the United Kingdom, made in Spectator USA. “There is a big difference,” he writes, “between Covid-19 causing death, and Covid-19 being found in someone who died of other causes. . . .
“First do no harm.” Dr. Lee is right to warn that the panicked response to this new virus has neglected that age-old medical advice. 

“Unless,” he notes, “we tighten criteria for recording death due only to the virus (as opposed to it being present in those who died from other conditions), the official figures may show a lot more deaths apparently caused by the virus than [are] actually the case. 

What then? How do we measure the health consequences of taking people’s lives, jobs, leisure and purpose away from them to protect them from an anticipated threat? Which causes the least harm?” what government stimuli stimulate is more government spending, along with inflation and ever increasing government bureaucracy.
 As of March 26, we have seen more than 490,000 hospitalizations and 34,000 flu deaths. Add in the COVID-19 numbers and you get 565,000 hospitalizations and 35,264 deaths. In other words, seen in context, COVID-19 cases are a barely discernible blip.
With these differences: the patients suffering from the effects of COVID-19 tend to be much sicker, taking up hospital beds for longer, and they are arriving more quickly and in bigger clumps.

President Trump’s adviser on the “pandemic,” Deborah Birx, told the press, the only hard and reliable datum on the lethality of the virus is the number of people who have actually died from its effects, a numerator that grows smaller and smaller in relation to the rapidly rising denominator of total cases. 

Hence Dr. Birx also reported that the death rate for COVID-19 in the United State will likely fall below 1% based on the number of people tested so far. Assuming quite reasonably that reported cases are only the tip of the iceberg of actual total cases in the world, it may well turn out that the death rate from this particular coronavirus is vanishingly small. 

NY Governor, 'Catholic' Andrew Cuomo, recently said about moves to reduce deaths from Covid-19 that, “This is about saving lives. If everything we do saves just one life, I’ll be happy.” Cuomo it was who signed off on the deal that would leave full-term babies born alive after botched abortions and left to die, without even a nurse's arms to cradle them. Loss of faith? Apostasy? Heresy, even?

Coincidentally. Dr Birx continued to raise concerns about the New York metro area, which has become the epicenter of coronavirus cases and accounts for more than 50 percent of all new cases being reported.

Coincidentally, the bridge from which Alexander Tschugguel threw those pachamama idols into the Tiber is the very bridge from which Pope St Gregory the Great saw St Michael the Archangel sheathe his bloody sword as a sign that the plague was over. 


And - coincidentally - Alexander Tschugguel has just been discharged from hospital having recovered from Covid-19. Deo gratias.
Our Lady of Akita warns the world, in line with the Fatima prophecy of the annihilation of various nations:

“As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before.
"Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead.

“The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary.”

The Rosary and the Consecration of Russia to Mary’s Immaculate Heart are the only remedies to avert death by the worst virus of all: the virus of apostasy from God and His Law, which has spread throughout the world and shows no signs of abating.
