The Bear is Back and Bergoglio better Beware of the Bear

There has been another sighting of the great St. Corbinians Bear in the Catholic Monitor comment section:

The Bear said…
It’s the money. That’s why Bergoglio is re-purposing the Church into non-Christian leftist cheerleader-state relevant only because the Pope is spending moral capital earned by 2000 years of saints. No more claims of exclusiveness for Christ or the Church—no stumbling blocks on the glorious road to a secular tomorrow. Brilliant survival strategy in a post-Christian world after Catholics voted with their feet post V2. To those with eyes to see God has given 20/20 vision this year.

Money, yes, but the CCP and the Conciliar Church have the same employer. They also have his agenda in common-total control of the world and the extermination of Christianity.

I have not seen the "Bear" for a long, long time.

It is *good* to see the bear is out of hibernation.

He seems well rested, clear minded - ready for a good meal on his anti-Christian enemies. They best beware The Bear,

Brings back memories to me of an earlier time, at the beginning of this present crisis, when we were all just trying to explain the inexplicable - scattered, confused, perplexed, searching for answers.

And here we all are, in the gathering concensus against this great evil - clarity is growing and the enemy now appears uncertain, desperate, their advance tenuous in the face of the growing resistance, disgust and anger.

Bear sniffs out lies and roars when he finds them. When it comes to the Bergolian Catholic Church near everything is a lie or obfuscation. Expect Bear to be very busy.

Below is the Bear's Independence Day post. For some reason the Bear's blog is not coming up when I google it, so here is his https:

The "Seriously?" Argument for Pope Benedict vs. Bergoglio

By now you have heard many argue Jorge Bergoglio is not the Pope. The idea that Benedict never effectively resigned has built up some steam. Recently, Dr. Edmund Mazza has caused a stir with his theory that the office of Bishop of Rome and Pope can be split--and was--upon the resignation of Pope Benedict.

The Bear was a criminal defense lawyer. He isn't a canon lawyer, can't think like they think, doesn't know the rules, and respects his ignorance of legal specialties. So he just won't get into it, anymore than he would expect to see Dr. Ed Peters defending a DUI, let alone first chair in a death penalty case.

But there are two mixed question of fact and law: (1) Pope Benedict was coerced, or (2) had a misunderstanding about the completeness of his resignation. For the sake of argument, let's say either of these would invalidate his resignation of February 28, 2013. (Has it really only been that long ago?)

The first involves speculation: Benedict may have been coerced, but, if so, the evidence hasn't surfaced. 

The second argument does not require speculation, since we can draw reasonable inferences of fact from his behavior. If this would make the resignation invalid, then the Bear thinks it likely Benedict did not have the requisite intent to fully resign, did not resign and Jorge Bergoglio is not Pope. But even this depends on canon law for the state of mind requirement.

And, as bad a Pope as we may have is, as a practical matter he enjoys an almost invincible presumption of legitimacy by now. But there's no law against being a bad Pope. The Bear cannot recall an unambiguous, formal declaration of heresy. But, that is not the way Modernists operate. See, Pope Pius X, Pascendi Dominici Gregis (1907) on their doublespeak.

So, the following argument is not legal, or even logical: call it rhetorical. The Bear calls it the "Seriously?" argument.

It is certain there will be another conclave in 2020. Or 2021. Soon, anyway. The Bear hopes the Church--including the Cardinals--have been given this glimpse of a Full Metal Modernist Bishop of Rome as a warning. If they continue by electing another, they have no excuse. 

The Historic Resignation

Pope Benedict XVI has conducted himself in a manner he knows can only confuse the faithful. He still wears white, has a papal ring, confers the Apostolic Blessing, and even calls himself Pope. (Yes, he adds "Emeritus" to that, a title that did not exist before he invented it.) This is just bizarre.

While the exact number may be debatable, it's generally held that only four of what we'll call 266 popes have resigned, the last Celestine V in 1294. Benedict would be the first in 700 years. 

Let that sink in.

And Benedict would be the only one to stick around dressed up like a pope, exercising some sort of co-papacy of contemplation and prayer. In the Navy, a change of command is one of the most solemn and traditional ceremonies in the most traditional branch of service. The old skipper doesn't remain on the ship as "Captain Emeritus." That would be unsettling, to say the least.

Celestine V fled Rome after his resignation, but was captured and imprisoned by his successor. He did not stay on as "Pope Emeritus." None of the other popes who resigned did. It is unprecedented.

The stated reasons were age and health, ("Resigned for health reasons" is usually code for something else, but let's take him at his word.) Yet he was close to his predecessor, John Paul II, who allowed neither age nor health to cause him to abandon his post. It seems odd for Benedict to flout such a precedent. 

Pope John Paul II—at his post until the end despite his illness.

It would be a wonder in Church history if Pope Benedict did resign. To stay on as "Pope Emeritus" to the confusion of the faithful would be unprecedented. To do so under a cloud of scandal, just after receiving the findings of an investigation he ordered makes it suspicious. The more you think about it, the more you realize just what a jaw-dropper it is.

This resignation--all by itself--is an unprecedented event in Church history. Unique, even.

Francis the Terrible

Jorge Bergoglio, stupor mundi, arrives on the stage of history at the same time Benedict resigned, amidst signs and portents. From his first appearance, he confused the faithful by referring to himself as "Bishop of Rome." Was the Bear alone in wondering, "Okay, so when do we get to see the Pope?"

He still has an aversion to titles, as the 2020 Vatican Yearbook shows, listing himself as Jorge Mario Bergoglio and putting "Vicar of Christ" and other historical titles in a footnote at the bottom. Isn’t that strange? Moreover, strangely honest? All it needs is an asterisk, like Barry Bond's dubious home-run record-breaking ball.

Comparison: in 2020 on right it's Jorge Bergoglio; the titles Vicar of Christ, etc. below. Might as well put an asterisk on it.

Barry Bonds' 756th home run record-breaking ball in Baseball Hall of Fame, with asterisk.

He has been the Pope most destructive of the faith in 2000 years of Church history. From coprophagic insults, to Amorous Laetitia, to the Abu Dubia Three Great Abrahamic Religions Worship Center and Waterpark, and Pachamama because God wills diversity in religion, and on goes the breathless list. It would take a book to contain all his scandals. In fact several have been written.

Francis--all by himself--is an unprecedented event in Church history. Unique, even.


The resignation of Pope Benedict XVI, under a cloud, then hanging around as "Pope Emeritus," is staggering enough, but the Bear could accept one major, unprecedented historical event. After all, weird things do happen.

But then there is Francis, too. 

Now the Bear’s sense of coincidence is tested. The words "unprecedented," and "major historical event," and "unique" mean things that rarely happen, or have never happened before. Example: Francis the Terrible, the Indifferentist, the Globalist, the Mocker. The Modernist who, like a squid, hides heresy with a cloud of the ink of orthodoxy when necessary. 

When two such events happen together, what are we supposed to say?

The Bear can only say, "seriously?" You seriously want us to just put aside all the weirdness going on in different quarters and whistle a happy tune? The Bear passes over the destruction of Catholic statues, the worldwide pandemic that has closed all the churches and denied the sacraments to all the faithful for the first time in history, and everything else: things that can't be blamed on Bergoglio directly, but are part of the weirdness.

It is as if the gates of Hell have been opened.

We just happen to have the worst Pope in 2000 years in Francis, but also a second "Pope Emeritus” whose resignation is sufficiently doubtful so as to cast doubt on whether we ever had a Pope Francis in the first place. 

Pope Francis.


Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Mass and the Church as well as for the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N.

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b

Bishops of Colorado gave an apparent Vaxx "Exemption" Letter & Stated: "Vaccination is Not Morally Obligatory and so Must Be Voluntary"

Today, the bishops of Colorado gave an apparent Vaxx " exemption" letter (21_8_Vaccine_Exemption_CCC_Fin...docx(20KB)) and stated that "Vaccination is Not Morally Obligatory and so Must Be Voluntary":  COLORADO CATHOLIC CONFERENCE 1535 Logan Street | Denver, CO 80203-1913 303-894-8808 |   [Date]   To Whom It May Concern, [Name] is a baptized Catholic seeking a religious exemption from an immunization requirement. This letter explains how the Catholic Church’s teachings may lead individual Catholics, including [name], to decline certain vaccines. The Catholic Church teaches that a person may be required to refuse a medical intervention, including a vaccination, if his or her conscience comes to this judgment. While the Catholic Church does not prohibit the use of most vaccines, and generally encourages them to safeguard personal and public health, the following authoritative Church teachings demonstrate the principled religious
