It is with great interest that we in the Sacred Society of St Philibustre have observed the election in Rome this week of “Cardinal” Jorge Mario Bergooglio as “Pope” Francis. Of course we are saddened that our own Pope Linus has been rejected by the “Conclave of Cardinals” but it was to be expected. We who hold to the ancient traditions of the church are used to being persecuted by the purveyors of clown masses.
In his first appearance on the balcony and first Mass we have already seen how Pope Francis has betrayed the minimal reforms in the liturgy pioneered by the timorous academic Joseph Ratzinger. The mozzarella was not worn, nor was the cappa magnesium. The triple tiara was left in the museum, and on his feet he did not wear the slipperia rubum. The seedy gestatoria was not restored nor the peacock fans. At Mass in the Sixteen Chapel I noticed that neither the buttoned, nor the more ancient be-ribboned maniple was worn. He also did not stand up very straight. “Pope Francis” as he has called himself, is clearly another impostor and an anti-pope. Our own Pope Linus will soon be issuing a statement from his home in Bishop’s Stortford in England regarding this pretender to the chair of St Peter. In it he will stress the importance of the Western Ambrosianic Rite (non-collegian) and the institution of the be-ribboned maniple.
What interests me more than these liturgical innovations and infractions (which we have come to expect from the post Vatican II Novus Ordo Church) was the fact that Pope Francis clearly fulfills the prophecies of St Malachy. These earth shattering prophecies from the Old Testament minor prophet Malachy reveal that this is the last pope before the end of time. As the prophecies state, “Petrus Romanus will reign before the sun falls from the sky and then after the great persecution the great judge will come.”
You may well ask how a Pope from Argentina who’s name is Jorge and who takes the name Francis may be seen to be “Petrus Romanus” or “Peter the Roman.” We must remember that prophetic language is always cryptic and ambiguous. It takes some discernment to ascertain the true and certain meaning. The clue is in the name he has assumed. The full name of St Francis was Francis di Pietro di Bernadone. The middle name “Pietro” means “Peter” in Italian. Although Pope Francis comes from Argentina, he is the son of an Italian railway worker, and therefore he is a true Italian not Argentinian. The capital of Italy is Rome, and all Italians consider themselves Romans at heart. Therefore it is clear that he is the “Petrus Romanus” of Malachy’s prophecy.
I do not say this to you my dear friends to alarm you in any way, but to remind you that there is still time to turn to the one true church in which there is salvation: the Sacred Society of St Philibustre.
