Draft of the letter prepared by the bishops of the BCP

We, the bishops of Mexico, hereby publicly repent for having approved, and some of us even for having adopted, a so-called Mayan rite of the Mass with idolatrous elements. The two pseudo liturgical offices of a principal and an incensor are absurdly included in the rite. The principal can also be female, though at times appearing of greater importance than the priest. The role of the incensor is in fact a combination of the roles of the deacon and the celebrating priest. The new rite also includes an idolatrous ritual dance that worships so-called Mother Earth, i.e. Gaia or Pachamama.

We, the bishops of Mexico, acknowledge in repentance that we have been deceived by the magic word of inculturation promoted by Vatican II Nostra Aetate syncretism. We refused to see the reality of pagan cruelty and demonism. Our ancestors, the Aztecs and Mayans, suffered under the heavy yoke of this slavery. Up to 20,000 human sacrifices were offered to demons annually. While still alive, a shaman cut open their chest with a knife and sacrificed a bleeding heart to Satan. Blood rituals were often accompanied by ritual dance. Besides the shaman, the roles of the incensor and the principal were also relevant in human sacrifice rituals in the Mayan culture.

Our ancestors 600 years ago lived in fear and terror that if they did not make daily human sacrifices to the pseudo-god, Satan, the sun would not rise. The fear and darkness of pagan superstition ruled our forefathers even after the arrival of the Christian missionaries. The spirit of paganism, embodied in so-called Mayan culture, continued to dominate even our baptized ancestors. The dark bondage to demons, causing people to live in fear and sorrow, persisted. The turning point only came when the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to the simple peasant Juan Diego in Guadalupe. Within a short period of time, the people underwent a profound internal change. The Mother of Jesus crushed the head of the infernal serpent, which had subdued the nation through paganism and its so-called demon-worshipping ritual dance tradition. The Blessed Virgin broke its dark power. Nine million Mexicans, who were converted in Guadalupe immediately afterward, were delivered from this strong spiritual bondage. Gone was the deep sadness that had previously blanketed all of Mexico, holding it under the curse of paganism. God spoke to our ancestors in their own language, when He used symbols on a miraculous image of the Blessed Virgin that opened their eyes and hearts to the Saviour. For the first time, they were able to believe the good news of the Gospel about our temporal and eternal salvation. So great was the joy of the people that faith spread like fire.

The Mayan (and Aztec) culture, on the other hand, burned incense to worship demons instead of the true God! Scripture clearly warns: “What pagans sacrifice they offer to demons and not to God.” The Apostle further warns: “I do not want you to be participants with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons.” (1Co 10:20-21) Promotion of so-called Mayan culture reflects a basic ignorance of Holy Scriptures and Tradition. The prophets always warned the people and God punished them with diseases, wars and Babylonian exile for their pernicious syncretism with paganism. These punishments are a warning precedent for us too. They are the consequence of the sins against the First Commandment. According to Church tradition, the early Christians preferred a martyr’s death to offering a single grain of incense to pagan deities. The proposed Mayan rite is supposed to be a breakthrough in the efforts to eliminate the Most Holy Sacrifice. Contemporary religious relativism and syncretism is now being embodied in practical steps towards self-destruction of the essence of Christianity.

Public idolatry is currently being committed by Bergoglio. The October global synodal assembly in the Vatican is to launch a secret coup in the Church. The Synod also plans to discuss and vote on the adoption of Mayan pseudo Mass as a precedent for the whole Church. It should be known that all participants in this robber synod are subject to a latae sententiae excommunication, i.e. expulsion from the Church. This applies to all the bishops, priests, cardinals and lay people present.

The fraudulent legalization of idolatry has already started with the Amazon Synod. Cardinal Brandmüller said about its documents that they were not just about apostasy but about stupidity. The enthronement of the Pachamama demon in the Vatican is a public apostasy from Christ. In 2022, the invalid Pope publicly dedicated himself to Satan in Canada to the accompaniment of a sorcerer blowing a wild turkey bone whistle. This is an official satanization of the Church. It takes a more covert form by promoting so-called Mother Earth (Gaia) worshipping ecology. Its outward manifestation is sodomite propaganda as part of the so-called synodal LGBTQ journey.

Therefore, we, the Mexican bishops, now definitely turn away from the apostate step of introducing the so-called Mayan rite. We dread to think that it would ultimately eliminate the mystery of faith, namely Holy Mass. In no way can the introduction of pagan practices contribute to a deeper experience of this mystery! At their core lies the dark spirit of paganism, the spirit of apostasy.

As part of penance, we bishops present to you a real deepening of the mystery of our salvation, which is made present through Consecration in the Mass. First of all, stop saying in the Mass the name of the invalid Pope Francis, who has brought upon himself an anathema according to Gal 1:8-9 for an idolatrous anti-gospel. By doing this you will get from under the curse that every Catholic brings upon himself if he inwardly submits to him, thereby renouncing Christ and His Gospel.

As for deeper inner experience of the mystery of the Mass, make two pauses for silence. The first one before the Consecration and the second one after it. Before the Consecration, let each celebrant kneel down and realize his priestly anointing, through which the Holy Spirit works during the Consecration. Again, briefly with faith, let him ask for the renewal of his priestly anointing. At the same time, let him realize with a living faith that now through him the Holy Spirit will make present the mystery of Christ’s Calvary sacrifice. During the second moment of silence after the Consecration, the priest kneels again and remains in short adoration with the people. He realizes that Jesus is here now. It is a moment of grace. In spirit, he is by the cross of Christ and he realizes: Jesus sees me, Jesus now speaks to me and entrusts to me His testament before death, saying: “Behold your Mother.” With the same faith and devotion as the Apostle John, I now receive the Mother of Jesus into my innermost being, Greek eis ta idia (Jn 19:26-27).

Then priests and believers ponder the reality of Christ’s death, in which there is victory over sin and death. We were immersed in Christ’s death in Holy Baptism (Rom 6:3).

The silence before the Consecration lasts about 3-5 minutes and so does the silence after the Consecration. At this time, there is either silence or the choir sings an antiphon – one to the Holy Spirit before the Consecration and another one after it repeating the name of Jesus, Yehoshua in Hebrew.

Instead of the words before Holy Communion, “Let us offer each other the sign of peace,” the priest says, “Christ is risen!” The people begin to sing a joyous antiphon or song celebrating Christ’s resurrection. Everyone should realize their participation in Christ’s new life. The essence of the liturgy is the making present of Christ’s death and resurrection. In liturgical terms, the resurrection is expressed in the placement of a particle of the Body of Christ into the chalice of His Blood.

Holy Communion follows, where the priest and the faithful are united with Jesus not only spiritually, but also physically. The condition for Communion is not to be in a state of mortal sin. After Holy Communion, there can be absolutely no room for pagan dancing, so-called ritual dance. The Spirit of Christ in the Mass has nothing in common with the spirit of paganism. One cannot use pagan elements to “enliven” Christ’s sacrifice of the cross!

The Church in the current extraordinary situation is in a state of sede vacante. Until a rightful Pope is installed, the orthodox college of bishops assumes the responsibility for orthodox doctrine and morals. This college is accountable before God Himself for the purity of the teaching providing a guarantee of eternal salvation to all of you. However, everyone must strive for salvation through a life of repentance and prayer. Without repentance and prayer no one will be saved. That is why we call for the spiritual renewal above all of priests and religious. It consists in the fact that everyone must stand on the path of salvation, which is Jesus. Therefore, they must categorically reject the false path of Bergoglio’s synodality with the promotion of idolatry and sodomy. His false path leads to eternal destruction. It is necessary for every Catholic believer to realize this. There is only one way to salvation, and that is Christ. The path of paganism is associated with the worship of and submission to demons. This path leads to eternal destruction.

As part of the repentance and spiritual revival of our nation, we call on priests to strive for a period of one year to implement the basic principles on which the early Church was built. Here were also the Virgin Mary and the apostles. These are the four spiritual pillars according to Acts 2:42: 1) prayer, 2) apostolic teaching, not heresies or false ways, 3) fellowship – koinonia, 4) Eucharist – Holy Mass, not syncretism with pagan demons.

How to implement these principles? Let the priests spend time in prayer together the day after Sunday, at least four hours, and then in fellowship. Let preferably 4‒7 priests meet in groups in one of the parish houses. The strategic moment is for them to gather already on Sunday evening. They mostly need to share with each other and also get out of a kind of feeling of outward loneliness or emptiness, which usually overwhelms them at the end of Sunday. After lunch together on Tuesday, the prayers and fellowship will end. It is during this meeting that God gives insight into His Word, which every preacher needs. The living water flowing from these regular priestly meetings will cause a spiritual awakening. Our Lady of Guadalupe intercedes for the new warriors of Christ, the Cristeros, just like in the generation of Mexican Catholics a hundred years ago. These warriors will remain faithful to Christ as martyrēs even at the cost of martyrdom.
