Pope Silent On Abortion, Outspoken On Mass Migration of Muslims: Why?editor
Pope Francis Weaponizes the Mass for Politics
by Chris Ferrara
Fatima Perspectives #1213
The Pope who vows he will not interfere in the concrete politics of nations when it comes to abortion and “gay marriage” never ceases to interfere in politics when it comes to his obsession with promoting the mass influx of Muslims into Europe.
Thus the Vatican Press Office has just announced that tomorrow “the Holy Father Francis will celebrate a Mass for Migrants at the Altar of the Cathedra, in Saint Peter’s Basilica. The Mass coincides with the fifth anniversary of Pope Francis’ visit to Lampedusa (8 July 2013).”
Lampedusa is the place where Francis ostentatiously denounced as “shameful” a shipwreck off the coast of that island near Sicily in which many migrants from Africa, most of them military age Muslim males, were drowned. As if it were the fault of the government of Italy that illegal traffickers in human beings had provided an inadequate vessel for their cargo of illegal immigrants.
On June 14, addressing a conference on international migration at the Vatican, Francis demanded “a change in mindset: we must move from considering others as threats to our comfort to valuing them as persons whose life experience and values can contribute greatly to the enrichment of our society.”
The notion that the mass migration of Muslims into Italy in violation of Italian law enriches Italian society is utterly preposterous. And, as the recent elections in Italy have shown, the Italian people, who are overwhelmingly Christian at least by virtue of Baptism, have had quite enough of this nonsense.
Over the past five years Francis has continually glossed over critical distinctions between legal and illegal immigration, between true refugees with bona fide claims of asylum and merely economic migrants hoping to reap benefits by entering illegally, between able-bodied males and vulnerable women and children, between people fleeing wars or disasters and merely opportunistic individuals who had no compelling reason to leave their home countries, between people without skills who may have criminal tendencies and the best and brightest from other lands.
These are all legal distinctions it is the duty of civil authorities to sort out with appropriate legislation, including tight restrictions on the number of permitted legal immigrants, not excluding a total moratorium on immigration from certain places if it is deemed to serve the common good of citizens. The crafting of these laws and regulations is, frankly, none of Francis’ business.
Yet on June 14 Francis continued with his crude demagoguery on the immigration issue, demanding that European countries “tear down the wall of ‘comfortable and silent complicity’ that worsens their [the migrants’] helplessness; they are waiting for us to show them concern, compassion and devotion.” As if legitimate attempts to impose strong restrictions on immigration were immoral — restrictions like those in effect in Vatican City!
The Mass tomorrow will be a virtual weaponization of the sacred liturgy for political purposes, including a specially composed prayer, published by the Vatican, that declares: “O God, father of all men, for you no one is a stranger, no one is excluded from your fatherhood…” — as if to suggest that the exclusion of illegal immigrants is per se offensive to God.
The same prayer pleads that “we,” meaning, of course, the opponents of open borders, “be given a sensitive and generous heart towards the poor and oppressed.” One wonders when the Pope will have a Mass for the innocent unborn who are slaughtered by the millions each year, and when he will offer a highly publicized prayer that supporters of legalized child murder be “given a sensitive and generous heart towards the poor and oppressed” victims of their slaughterhouses.
But we know the answer to that question: Probably never. And therein lies the essence of the disaster that is this pontificate. Source – Fatima Perspectives
I seen on the Net that 2 Hollywood Idiots Martin Sheen and Alec Baldwin said they were going on a 24 Hour Hunger Strike for Immigrants . I nearly fell of my chair when I read it . The only surprise was that Francis hadn’t said he was going to join their 24 Hour Hunger Strike . What would we as Catholics not give for this Man to go on a Month long Silence. As you said no word from him on The Homosexual Thing ( I can’t call it Marriage) except to welcome Homosexuals with open arms when he meets them . We know that the Lavender Mafia is now peaking and Francis gives them more or less free reign. He hasn’t said one word about the Irish Referendum on Abortion. Whereas you would think he would be having a Mass said for the Future Souls of these innocents.
Also Catholics being murdered now at a terrible rate in Africa and again Silence from this Man whom at a horrific rate is bringing us all down. As an afterthought why doesn’t Francis ask these Muslim Immigrants where their women are ,of course there’s Gender Abortion but Francis also won’t go there .
Month-long silence? How about a permanent resignation?!
Well said, LOL!
Ed can I have your permission to post some blogs on Twitter. It will not be derogatory. If you say no I will understand. Thanks .
Please feel free to spread our blog posts anywhere, any time.
Thank you . The one I especially was wanting to put on for a start was The letter from the Alter Boy where Francis said about his experience as an alter boy trying to make fun of the Priests.
Abortion is not the only pagan/barbarian scourge Pope Francis is silent about, by any means. But his silence can be attributed, I think, to the undeniable fact that he is a leftist (or any of the other synonyms for that corrupt, failed system of thought). His leftist belief system exposes him as a politician disguised as a cleric, not a true religious leader, and he betrays the Faith and the Church on a daily basis because of it.
In fact, not only is he disguised as a cleric, but also as a Catholic. He is not Catholic by any stretch of the imagination: he is simply an enemy of the Church, a betrayer, a Judas. But he is also the instrument of God’s wrath – which, judging from the sleazy gravity and depth of Francis’ surrender to the world and the New World Order, has reached ferocious proportions.
Here is a new article on the larger picture, a startling analysis of the state of the Church and the world, by the former head of the Vatican Bank, no less. I disagree with his thinking that the source of collapse of the West is due to the collapse in European births – that is making a cause out of an effect, when the real cause is man making a god of himself – but his analysis of the symptoms is spot on:
You are geographically closer than me, the lady Florida yankee here. Gonna call him up and snitch on you. Gonna tell him you called him a dang leftist. As Head of Magisterium, he’s gonna be ticked off. I’m telling on you and I mean it.
You BELIEVE life site??} it’s not even Catholic!!!
What I find especially puzzling about this pope is how he can keep silent about abortion and same-sex marriage yet be vocal about transgenderism
The above report is dated 2015, so he may have changed his mind since then, LOL!
What is it that makes him tick?
In an apocalyptic scene in the Bible (Apoc. 17:9-12) St. John sees and records about the beast of Antichrist. He has “only the horns that have diadems as symbols or royalty governing powers. (Apoc 13:13) They symbolize that Satan’s attacks against the Church in the latter days will be by Judaism, Paganism, Arianism, Mohammedanism, Protestantism, Rationaoism, Atheism.”
“The dragon which is seen in the heavens is a symbol of the Church, the Kingdom of heaven on earth. This indicates that the first troubles of those days will be inaugurated within the Church by apostate Bishops Priests, and, people – the stars dragged down by the tail of the dragon.”
The tail of the dragon represents the cunning hypocrisy with which he succeeds in deceiving a large number of people and pastors – a third part of the stars.. With the beast of Antichrist, only the horns have diadems as symbols of governing powers, The heads are branded with names of blasphemy. Hence they symbolize the sins and errors that will afflict the Church in those days:
Seven, the number of universality, indicates that, in the final struggle to prevent the Universal Reign of Christ the King, all sins and errors will be marshalled against the Church.
A prelude to this was modernism.”
The Apocalypse of St. John
Rev. E. Sylvester Berry
Do not be afraid! We have been given all the weapons of warfare by Our Lady. Pope Francis is loved by the world. He speaks of the devil in mockery and jest mixed up with traditionalism.We must pray and sacrifice our way through his blasphemous verbiage and behaviour such as the Mass written about the migration of muslims and his absence of even a token word of heartbreak and pity about the babies being ripped from limb to limb. their blood laying in a pool on the floor around the shoes of the abortionist, just like the Aztec King Huitzilopochtl whose ‘priests’ dressed in feathers and wielding bloody daggers, sacrificed on a stone.
We must prepare for the return of barbarianism, such as existed in the world before Christ was born. From a poor little cave a great light issued, as choirs of angels filled the sky with song on that beautiful night and sang the first words from heaven to mankind: Glory to God in the Highest and Peace on earth to men of Good Will”
Long live the Church! Viva Cristo Rey!!
The reason the Pope is silent on abortion and same-sex marriage is because he’s full of “mercy” – except for the unborn babies murdered, of course.
Excuse my sarcasm but I can’t take this pope seriously at all. He’s terrible. Either he’s keen to flood Europe with Muslims out of a misplaced pity for them because he really hasn’t a clue about Islam, or he just clutches onto popular causes like migrants and climate change. He’s such a confused man, it’s difficult to work out what he’s thinking.
Am with you M.Mary . But then after all does he take us seriously.
As ever, Christopher Ferrara nails it in a sentence – his opening sentence, in this case, LOL! “The Pope who vows he will not interfere in the concrete politics of nations when it comes to abortion and “gay marriage” never ceases to interfere in politics when it comes to his obsession with promoting the mass influx of Muslims into Europe.” You could add climate change to that. He said recently that the world would end up as a heap of rubble if we didn’t pay attention to the green agenda.
What a disgraceful pope. There’s just no words to describe my anger towards him and I don’t need a priest in confession to tell me it’s not sinful anger. I just cannot understand how any Catholic can be anything except angry with this nincompoop of a pope.
I’d like to say thanks, though, to the regular bloggers here who help to keep me sane. It takes some grit and character to persevere in these times and I notice some have fallen by the wayside, but to those who are sticking it out, a big, heartfelt thank you.

Many thanks for posting that article.
Since we set up shop in 1999, we have focused on this loud silence from the hierarchy, inside and outside of Rome. We have been puzzled by it, shocked by it, but at no time have we been quite as astonished by it as we are now, with this horrendous pope at the helm, doing his best to sink the ship.
Those cardinals and bishops who are remaining silent, some, perhaps, for misguided “prudential” reasons, will – nevertheless – pay a very heavy price at their judgment. They have a duty, inherent in their office, to defend the Faith and protect the faithful, at times of crisis such as this. Instead, they have abandoned us, left us to flail around seeking help and support from wherever, in order to keep true to the Faith of our Fathers.
Yesterday was the Feast of the English martyrs, SS John Fisher (the only bishop to remain faithful at the time of the Protestant Reformation) and St Thomas More, married man with a family, who, nevertheless, put fidelity to Christ’s Church before his own life. By contrast, what a bunch of wimps are (not) serving the faithful right now, the world over.
When I read the reports (Catholic press online) of their silly activities, tea and biscuits with the local Presbyterian minister, and see photos of their grinning faces fronting a group of parishioners from St Gall’s parish, I shake my pretty little head and think – WOW! Are you in trouble; feted in this life, but what about the next?
Here here in the states everybody’s hoping Kavanaugh, the new nominee for Supreme Court is their answer stopping abortion forever. They and Trump are deluding themselves.
They aren’t the only ones, Jeanne!
If you clap in church, are you gonna be struck dead by lightening?
We do not know the day nor the hour… as Our Lord warned.
But, why on earth would anyone be “clapping” in Church – aren’t we there to praise God, not applaud ourselves?
You obviously don’t think it’s important to be reverent in church. Clapping is for theatres, not church.
Editor and Fidelis,
Many NO churches are concert venues, in addition to being – giving them the benefit of the doubt – Catholic houses of worship. Choral concerts are especially common, at least on this side of the pond, at the conclusion of which….thunderous applause (that is, if the singers were any good…). Furthermore, in about 99 out of 100 cases (my guess), the Blessed Sacrament is not removed, neither for rehearsals nor performances, so you have people tramping about as if Our Lord wasn’t even there.
That’s very sad, but true. I’ve noted quite a few adverts for such concerts in Catholic churches and cathedrals in recent years.
In fact, in 2005 we reported the scandal of a Glasgow church handed over to Buddhists for a “Singing Bowls” concert. In that case, we were told the Blessed Sacrament had been removed but nobody knew to where. We’d gone to pray a public rosary outside the church and the police came along to check us out. The whole thing was shocking. We discovered later that a woman had gone into the church to kneel at the back and pray in reparation, so that was something.
Fast forward a bit and that same church hit the headlines around the world when a young Polish student who was staying at the church, was murdered by another man staying at the church who turned out to be a serial killer, later linked to other murders. Living there under a false name and all because of the ridiculous simpleton attitude to helping the poor and needy. Instead of helping them to a formal homeless shelter, the PP gave them rooms in the parish house and the rest, as they say, is (horrendous) history.
For the record, the Parish Priest, now deceased, had been one of the leading lights in the archdiocese… what a scandal.
Can’t help wondering if the Buddhist concert played any part in the demise of that church… Speaking, not figuratively, mind you, but supernaturally…
That was a truly terrible case, the murder of Angelika Kluk, at St Patrick’s in Glasgow. What a terrible scandal it was at the time.
I’d say that the Buddhist concert definitely did play a part in that evil – to remove the Blessed Sacrament to allow a pagan service or concert to take place? I would say that definitely would pave the way for the kind of evil we saw in St Patrick’s later on, and as far as I know, that church was never re-consecrated. I wouldn’t set foot it in, myself. .
The murder of Angelik Kluk at St Patrick’s Church, Glasgow was indeed terrible, and, a scandal at the time.
As far as I know Archbishop Conti lead a special liturgy of rededication of the Church to mark its reopening. The Church was closed for some months I think.
What I am not too sure about – is whether a “rededication” means the same as a re-consecration of the Church. Perhaps someone could clarify this for me. Especially in the light of post Vatican II and before.
To remove the Blessed Sacrament from the Tabernacle in order to allow a pagan service or even concert to take place in a Catholic Church is terrible. It does lay the path for the kind of evil that came subsequently.

I remember Editor strongly decrying the fact that a “rededication” was the only response to the evil which occured at St Patrick’s, so I can confidently state that these are not the same or even comparable!

I appreciate why people do not like this idea, but it is surprisingly common to generate funds for the upkeep of buildings.
I was in Budapest a few years ago and St Stephens Basilica there held regular concerts (we attended one). This summer, I was in Utrecht and the SSPX Church there, St Willibrord’s, holds concerts to provide funds for upkeep of the Church.
I think that, as long as its born of necessity rather than desire, and the type of (sacred/classical) music etc is appropriate, then I am relatively comfortable with the practice.
However, I strongly disagree with the kinds of events which the Church in Scotland holds in its Churches though – plays and musicals etc. The problem there is the Archdiocese of Glasgows “arts project” which seems to teach people to view Churches as being galleries and performance spaces.

LOL! Me, too. I remember that and although I’m not sure, I guess it’s because a re-consecration will include an exorcism.
I completely agree with what RCAVictor says, that Francis is a politician disguised as a religious leader.
Francis’ agenda mirrors that of the secular world perfectly. Was it Fr Linus Clovis (?) who said of Francis that the world “recognises him as one of it’s own”? Which is precisely the reason he gets little if any bad press (compare to Benedict, who couldn’t even wake up without generating a scandal).
He must be a tool of someone or some political body. With his silence on outrages like abortion and his defence of mass immigration, he would do very well as part of many contemporary secular Governments.
I suspect Francis is a tool of the German episcopate and the Lavender Mafia, with lots of circumstantial evidence – but, as far as I am aware, no smoking gun….yet…
I think any smoking gun will be kept well hidden – this pope is doing the bidding of the liberal left, so he will be protected, I have no doubt.
I expect absolutely nothing from this pope. He is a politician, a worldly man, who is going along with every politically correct cause on the planet, even if occasionally he seems to condemn something (like transgenderism – in the end, he smooths over anything that might “offend” anyone.)
I just can’t wait to be rid of him.
This report has just arrived in my inbox – seems having the crucifix in public places in a Catholic country is regarded as “political” and thus unacceptable – by the Pope.
I wonder what he thinks about the public display of Islam, not only on the streets of Muslim countries but every western nation as well. Political? Unacceptable? Or a wonderful example of our tolerance and embracement of “diversity”?
Although I’ve never read it, the title of one of Archbishop Lefebvre’s books springs to mind: They have uncrowned Him.
