Bishops as successors of the apostles have a primary duty to defend the truths of faith and morals, which give assurance of salvation and save us from eternal death.
A few years ago, a 17-year-old Russian girl dying of AIDS wrote a letter of warning to young people. She painfully blamed her parents for not forbidding her to walk the self-destructive path of false freedom, which caused her to sink into immorality and drug addiction. She writes: “However harshly my parents would have disciplined me, I would now kiss their hands, because they would save my life. Now it’s too late, I’m dying.”
Bishops and their assistants, priests, are spiritual parents to God’s children. It is their duty to safeguard the truths of faith and to warn the flock against heresies and immorality. The gravest form of immorality today is LGBTQ. It involves the demoralization of children from the youngest age and the forcing of gender reassignment onto minors, i.e. irreversible mutilation of their bodies and souls. As for the Q-orientation, it includes, apart from other crimes, sexual murders.
Some years ago, a Q-oriented man slit the throats of more than fifty women in Ukraine. He is in prison now. However, the current synodal process in the Church, as pseudo Pope Francis said to the world’s media on 24 January 2023, shall welcome these LGBTQ persons in the Church despite the fact that they refuse to repent. They must not be prevented from living freely according to their sexual orientation, including the ‘Q’ one. What is more, Bergoglio said about the bishops who defend God’s commandments that they must necessarily undergo a conversion to be able to welcome unrepentant LGBTQ people in the Church. Finally, after such a conversion, they will completely boycott God’s commandments.
Every bishop, however, is obliged by Scripture and Tradition to categorically reject the false LGBTQ antigospel! It is the duty of an apostle of Christ to preach the Gospel of salvation in season and out of season. He has the task of exhorting and rebuking like the Apostle Paul, even at the cost of imprisonment, chains or death. If he neglects to do so, God warns such a one through the prophet Ezekiel: “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel… When I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, that same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand. Yet, if you warn the wicked…, you have delivered your soul.” (Ez 3:17-19)
In order to have God’s power and strength to witness to Christ, the bishop, successor to the apostles, must have the same Spirit as the apostles. At the beginning of the Second Epistle to Timothy, the Apostle Paul writes: “Therefore I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands.”
Through the laying on of the hands of the apostles, the priestly and apostolic anointing is passed on to priests to offer the bloodless sacrifice of Christ and to preach the word of God. Some cardinals and bishops, that is, successors of the apostles, have already received the spirit of the world, which has now culminated in them preaching the LGBTQ antigospel instead of the Gospel of Christ. This is part of the synodal journey.
The so-called continental stage is currently underway worldwide, bringing a curse on all continents. The question arises: What kind of spirit do these LGBTQ apostles pass on to those on whom they lay their hands? It is definitely not the Holy Spirit working through them anymore, since they are subject to God’s anathema, i.e. expulsion from the Mystical Body of Christ, due to the LGBTQ antigospel. The Holy Spirit has been driven out.
The Apostle Paul, on the other hand, was full of the Holy Spirit, and he was also a man of prayer. He would often pray not only during the day but also at night (cf. 2Tim 1:3). Therefore, an apostle of Christ must be a man of interior prayer, or else he will sow weeds instead of good grain. He will be cowardly silent on the elimination of God’s law rather than defend it. Today we can even see false apostles of the synodal journey preaching, as the Apostle Paul says, “another Jesus whom we have not preached, offering a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted. Such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.” (cf. 2Cor 11:4.13-15)
These words apply to all pseudo apostles of the LGBTQ synodal journey.
The synodal journey aimed at legalizing LGBTQ in the Church was also condemned by the former Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Card. G. Müller, as “doctrinally incompetent and canonically illegitimate”. In a similar way, US Bishop Paprocki accused Cardinal McElroy of heresy for his pro-LGBTQ views and propaganda. He made it public that the cardinal inflicted the penalty of automatic or latae sententiae excommunication upon himself.
The Apostle Paul encourages Timothy: “Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you – guard it through the power of the Holy Spirit who lives in us.” (v.14)
The synodal journey not only does not guard the good deposit of the Gospel, but it has cast it out along with the Holy Spirit and exchanged them for an antigospel and unclean LGBTQ spirits. But you, dear bishops who are faithful to Christ’s Gospel as true successors of the apostles: Do guard this good deposit that was entrusted to you! Well, it is not within your powers; you need God’s help, the power of the Holy Spirit who lives in you. It requires daily interior prayer, or prayer routine, to allow the Holy Spirit to work through you. Otherwise you will not have the strength to fight for the salvation of immortal souls, “so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God” (Acts 26:18).
At the Continental Assembly in Prague, Bishop Bätzing, a pro-LGBTQ apostle, said concerning the saving faith: “This is not my faith, not my image of Christ…” As a pro-LGBTQ apostle, Bätzing spoke the truth: he does not have the faith of the Apostle Paul, nor does he preach the same Christ, so he does not lead souls to salvation.
The Apostle urges Timothy: “Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers.”
The time has already come. The protagonists of the synodal journey no longer endure sound doctrine, be they bishops, priests or laymen. Their desire is to welcome all unrepentant LGBTQ sinners in the Church, who dictate how the Church should change her teaching after their own lusts.
“They will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.” So-called listening promoted by the pseudo Pope actually means turning one’s ears away from the truth and being turned aside to lies and fables.
There were brave bishops in history who had the same spirit as the Apostle Paul and fought courageously for the purity of faith and morals. They are an example to us too. One of them was St Athanasius, who fought for the purity of the Gospel against the Arian heresy. He suffered in exile for twenty years.
Another fighter against heresy was Saint John Chrysostom, who died in 407 during the second exile. He testifies: “I am a bishop entrusted with the care of souls. I will not stop speaking the truth, because if I were trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.”
Pope St Martin (649-655) fought against the heresy of Monotheletism. The emperor sentenced him to death. The Pope said before the court: “You can threaten me and cut me into pieces, but I will not enter into communion with the heretical Church of Constantinople.” Today every bishop should say: “You can cut me into pieces, but I will not enter into communion with the heretical Pope occupying the Vatican or with his LGBTQ synodal journey!”
The heresies of Modernism were opposed by Pope St Pius X in 1907.
John XXIII, who opened the Second Vatican Council, was an adherent of Modernism and opened the door for it to penetrate into the Church. The invalid Pope Francis Bergoglio now brings its pernicious fruits to maturity.
The present time requires a reform of the Church. It involves the need to renew the zeal and holiness of priests. The Holy Bishop Eusebius of Vercelli attempted to form a synthesis of priestly and monastic life as early as the 4th century. St Augustine attempted the same some time later. How to implement this idea today? By forming groups of 4 to 6 priests who would meet regularly for prayer and the study of God’s word. They would set aside all Mondays and Tuesday mornings for that. The meetings would be held in a parish house, where the priests would arrive on Sunday evening.
The present time calls for holy bishops and priests. This is the key to solving the crisis in the Church.
