Did the Secretive Pro-Francis & Pro-Amoris Laetitia Opus Dei give us Barr, Voris, Roberts & Coney Barrett?

KeanoTheDog on Twitter: "I'm wondering what Putin has on Bill Barr, was he  also secretly recorded whilst having a golden shower? Or is it just plain  and simple putin paid him to

Here's Bill Barr:

...“I’ve said I don’t think [Trump] should be our nominee, the Republican Party nominee. I think Republicans have a big opportunity. I think it would be a big mistake to put him forward...."

 The big mistake was you, Bill.  For a guy who talks "Catholic" you sure forgot a lot about punishment for crimes, especially those committed by your underlings in the FBI. - Dad29 [https://dad29.blogspot.com/2022/04/takes-one-to-know-one.html]

In 2021, Gateway Pundit reported that, Donald Trump's apparent controlled opposition, former Attorney General Bill Barr told "Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer to Stop Looking Into Truck Driver Jesse Morgan’s Testimony That He Moved More Than 200,000 Fraudulent Ballots from NY to PA Before the 2020 Election." - The Catholic Monitor

Could Amy Coney Barrett be the woman behind the Opus Dei curtain?

The leftist Washington Babylon website said that to some extent the secretive pro-Francis & pro-Amoris Laetitia Opus Dei put John Roberts and Amy Coney Barrett in the Supreme Court:

"Executive Vice President of the Federalist Society Leonard Leo, board member of Opus Dei’s Catholic Information Center, can take credit for installing four members of the Supreme Court: John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. It is Leo who prepares Trump’s “list of judges and the people that he’s put on the bench.” That now includes Judge Amy Coney Barrett."


"Its finances are also secret. An official organization of the Catholic Church, in the U.S. Opus Dei gets a 501(c)(3) tax code as a “religious” organization. Donors not only receive a tax deduction, but their names and amount of donations are secret. Opus Dei’s outlays are equally opaque."

Moreover, in 2021, Gateway Pundit reported that, Donald Trump's apparent controlled opposition, former Attorney General Bill Barr told "Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer to Stop Looking Into Truck Driver Jesse Morgan’s Testimony That He Moved More Than 200,000 Fraudulent Ballots from NY to PA Before the 2020 Election."

In February, NewsMax's Emerald Robinson reported that "former AG Bill Barr prevented 30 Trump Administration executive orders from being finalized after Election Day":

Barr has even made the list of Villains of the Republic: Pence-Judas Sixpence, Barr-BarrStool, Romney-Minion, Mitch-Yertie, Jeb Bush-Yeb...  [https://twitter.com/LarrySchweikart/status/1328699027588743170]
 
What most people don't know is that Barr appears to be a collaborator, but not seemingly a member with the secretive pro-Francis and pro-Amoris Laetitia Opus Dei according to the New York Post:
  
Along the way, writer David Rohde dwells on Barr’s Catholic faith and worldview. He brings up Barr’s association with the Catholic Information Center, a small cultural nonprofit in Washington, where swamp denizens stop by to buy spiritual books, hear the Mass and generally find uplift.

“Led by a member of the arch-conservative group Opus Dei, the center is a hub for Washington’s influential conservatives,” Rohde darkly suggests. “The center’s board of directors ­remains a nexus of politically connected Catholics. [White House counsel] Pat Cipollone and Barr have both served on the board, as has Leonard Leo, the executive vice president of the Federalist Society.”

[... ]

Barr’s connection to the CIC, which it said is “staffed by priests from the secretive, ultra-orthodox Catholic sect Opus Dei.” The same month, The Nation’s Joan Walsh sounded the alarm about Barr’s links to “extremist Catholic institutions,” while an article on the liberal Web site ­Alternet speculated that Barr may be an Opus Dei member. The group, it said, had taught Barr to “put away his scruples.” This is egregious nonsense. For starters, Barr isn’t, in fact, a member, as the organization was forced to clarify in November, breaking its usual policy of not identifying members or non-members.

The Catholic Monitor has shown that Micheal Voris has been soft on doing real investigations on the sex abuse scandals of Opus Dei and Francis. ["Now, Why doesn't Voris do a Months in the Making Investigation into the Sex Abuse scandals of Opus Dei & Francis' Vatican?": https://www.thecatholicmonitor.com/2020/04/now-why-doesnt-voris-do-months-in.html
 
Is Voris like Barr a collaborator of Opus Dei?
 
The Les Femmes website reported that Voris appears to be a collaborator like Barr with the pro-Francis and pro-Amoris Laetita Opus Dei:
 
So let's look at the beginning of CM as St. Michael's Media and Real Catholic TV.The saga begins in 2006 when Michael Voris formed his company, St. Michael's Media. In 2008 Real Catholic TV premiered in Ferndale, MI, a city known for its homosexual presence. 

But the domain name wasn’t registered by Voris. Rather it belonged to Marc Brammer who hired Voris to do the programming and put $250,000 into the startup of Real Catholic TV. 

So who is Marc Brammer and what kind of programming did he want Voris and company to produce?

Marc Brammer is a wealthy and successful businessman from South Bend, IN. He is also a member of Opus Dei as researcher Randy Engel confirmed from a 2011 email responding to a query to Mike Voris. Not just an ordinary member, however. Brammer wrote to Engel that he is a “supernumerary” of Opus Dei and involved in several media enterprises. What is the connection of those enterprises to OD? Another area of investigation.

In another contact with Engel, Brammer linked Opus Dei with Voris saying, “Come on Randy…be a Catholic warrior with us…with me…with [E. Michael] Jones…with Voris…we are not OD thugs.” Hmm… Brammer clearly connects Voris here with OD.  So exactly what level of involvement does Voris have with OD? Member? Cooperator? Friendly ally in their work? Something to investigate.

These questions need answers because they would go a long way to explaining why Church Militant is trying to destroy not only the SSPX, but LifeSiteNews, The Remnant, Catholic Family News, and any other media outlet favorable to the Holy Tradition of the Catholic Church.

Is Michael Voris a member of Opus Dei? A cooperator? Or just the financial beneficiary of a number of Opus Dei promoters who may be acting as Opus Dei front men? OD appears to act on the principle of plausible deniability letting some of their wealthy members act as stealth actors in their “work of God.” [https://lesfemmes-thetruth.blogspot.com/2021/08/church-militants-hatred-for-sspx.html#more]

Voris in a video titled "The Answer," re-posted by Restore-DC-Catholicism, said:

"As far as I can see Opus Dei which means the work of God is if not the answer is at least the best that I can see.
(Church Militant, "The Answer," 4:44-4:52 which was posted on Restore-DC-Catholicism, "The "Answer" according to Real Catholic TV, March 25, 2010)

In the above post, Restore-DC-Catholicism said former members of Opus Dei "relay their stories of how they were subject to subtle thought reform and increasing mental control."

Are the Opus Dei Collaborators, Barr and Voris, controlled opposition for Biden and Francis respectively?

Pray an Our Father now for reparation for the sins committed because of Francis's Amoris Laetitia.

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

Stop for a moment of silence, ask Jesus Christ what He wants you to do now and next. In this silence remember God, Father, Son and Holy Ghost - Three Divine Persons yet One God, has an ordered universe where you can know truth and falsehood as well as never forget that He wants you to have eternal happiness with Him as his son or daughter by grace. Make this a practice. By doing this you are doing more good than reading anything here or anywhere else on the Internet.

Francis Notes:

- Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation:

"[T]he Pope... WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic, he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him, or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See."
(The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306)


Saint Robert Bellarmine, also, said "the Pope heretic is not deposed ipso facto, but must be declared deposed by the Church."

 -  LifeSiteNews, "Confusion explodes as Pope Francis throws magisterial weight behind communion for adulterers," December 4, 2017:

The AAS guidelines explicitly allows "sexually active adulterous couples facing 'complex circumstances' to 'access the sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist.'"

-  On February 2018, in Rorate Caeli, Catholic theologian Dr. John Lamont:

"The AAS statement... establishes that Pope Francis in Amoris Laetitia has affirmed propositions that are heretical in the strict sense."

- On December 2, 2017, Bishop Rene Gracida:

"Francis' heterodoxy is now official. He has published his letter to the Argentina bishops in Acta Apostlica Series making those letters magisterial documents."

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church by the bishops by the grace of God.

Amazing. This Opus Dei scandal goes even into the Supreme Court. Truly, it is a monster with tentacles. Even more insidious than the Jesuits.

Good article. However, Describing him as not an ordinary member, but a supernumerary weakens The credibility... A supernumerary is a lower form of member than a celibate numerary.
Fr. VF said…
"Supernumerary" does not signify an extra-special member of Opus Dei. A "supernumerary" in OD ranks BELOW a "numerary." A supernumerary does not promise celibacy or live in community. Numeraries do. All priests of the prelature were at one time numeraries, who were chosen to study for the priesthood.

Thinking that a "supernumerary" is something special indicates lack of familiarity with OD.
Mike Jones denies he is or has been a member of Opus Dei.

What proof does Engel have he is or was a member?

In the book "Rite of Sodomy" Ms. Engel committed a mortal sin by falsely accusing Rafael Cardinal Merry del Val of sodomy with the young boys he mentored and also, according to a nasty rumor she passed along (with no proof), of hosting homosexual origes in his apartment.

She also wrongly claimed that the Merry del Val favored the election of Rampolla when the exact opposite was true. He was chosen to work with the conclave to oppose him.

How many fetid lies and egregious errors in ecclesiastical history does one have to commit before her reader begin to not take her claims seriously?

Voris is controlled opposition. The only question is, controlled by whom?

The article has no credibility.

The CIC is owned by the Archdiocese of Washington, but was languishing years ago and OD was asked by the then archbishop or cardinal of the archdiocese to run it. When OD takes something on, it doesn’t do anything half-way.

Membership in OD isn’t defined by “rank” but rather availability to serve the apostolates of OD. A married member, a supernumerary, by virtue of their marriage and likely parenting responsibilities is least free to serve specific OD apostolates, instead focusing mostly on one’s primary PERSONAL apostolate, their spouse, children, friends, coworkers, etc.

The organization is much looser than you think. I suspect most of the CIC board are NOT members of OD. That’s just how things are done.

The Catholic Monitor got an email from an anonymous source saying that Steve "Skojec has a new pseudonym. It's no longer Amateur Brain Surgeon, it's Mic Jagger Gathers No Mosque. Read his trolling of Dr. Ed Mazza in the combox at Briggs: https://www.wmbriggs.com/post/39752/." (I wrote back to the source that he changed it after I did a post on Amateur Brain Surgeon possibly being Skojec. But, what interested me more is that a former intelligence officer joined Skojec in the combox attack with the so-called "rejoinder" against the Dr. Mazza Briggs post.)

That said, I know for a fact that the formerly "Amateur Brain Surgeon" has changed his tag to Mick Jagger Gathers No Mosque. [https://www.thecatholicmonitor.com/2021/12/the-cm-comment-section-victory.html]

Can you imagine if the quotes were from Marcial Maciel?

I guess traditionalists now think Escrivá is worthy of quoting. Funny, back in the day most trads hated Josemaría Escrivá & Opus Dei? [https://www.romancatholicimperialist.com/2016/09/ex-legion-of-christ-steve-skojec-of-one.html]
Dear Fred. I have used many different screen names over many years. I think the first one I used was Catholic Guy at Free Republic where I was TOSed for making fun of Dubya. I said he invaded Iraq before Iran because he though that was the alphabetical order.

I am not Steve Skojec.

I have also used Bornacatholic, Amateur Brain Surgeon, I am not spartacus and, no doubt ,a few others I cannot remember.

Fred. You are falling for the Genetic Fallacy dismissing out of hand any information generated by a source you reject.

In a few days, on my crummy blog, I will be documenting what I charged Ms. Engel with having done in here.

I am sort of surprised you are more interested in my screen name than her being wrong abut Mike Jones "membership" in Opus Dei and her fetid, unproven, accusation that Rafael Cardinal Merry del Val was an active sodomite who hosted homosexual orgies in his apartment and preyed on young men but we all have our priorities.

So what if Mr. O'Reily is a former intelligence officer.? Does that make his reasonable responses to the BISP crowd nugatory?

You've got to do better.

What is your real name if you are not Skojec so I can do research on you? "So what if [Barr] is an [apparent deep state Bush collaborator].? Does that make his reasonable responses to the [Trump] crowd nugatory?"
Dear Fred. I'm not telling you or anyone else my real name. I would have thought my use of different screen names would have made that apparent to others.

Might it be Good for all of us & for Francis to Read about the "Gruesome Death of Arius"?

  I have read the letters of your piety , in which you have requested me to make known to you the events of my times relating to myself, and to give an account of that most impious heresy of the Arians , in consequence of which I have endured these sufferings, and also of the manner of the death of Arius . With two out of your three demands I have readily undertaken to comply, and have sent to your Godliness what I wrote to the Monks; from which you will be able to learn my own history as well as that of the heresy . But with respect to the other matter, I mean the death, I debated with myself for a long time, fearing lest any one should suppose that I was exulting in the death of that man. But yet, since a disputation which has taken place among you concerning the heresy , has issued in this question, whether Arius died after previously communicating with the Church ; I therefore was necessarily desirous of giving an account of his death, as thinking that the question woul
