Catholic Pontiffs Are Princely Rulers


Feast of St. Bartholomew

The Church instituted by the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is governed by bishops (episcopoi in original Greek), Ac. 20.28. But a Catholic Pontifex or bishop is not only known for his 100%* orthodoxy in his doctrine - in accordance with the Apostolic Tradition (cf., 2 Thess. 2.14); he is also identified as a prince: Thy friends, O God, are made exceedingly honorable... princes over all the earth (Ps. 138.17; 44.17, from the "Introit' and "Gradual" of the Holy Mass for today's Feast).
* "He must preserve this Faith whole and untarnished" (Athanasian Creed, recited by clerics and religious in the Office of Prime on Sundays). But, "The Ultimate Delusion of Vatican II 'Catholicism'", "Pope Francis Proclaims the New 'Gospel' of 'Universal Salvationism'", "Lumen fidei - a 'faith' or the Catholic Faith?", and Pope Francis on Homosexuality

A prince of the Church, Card. Pacelli - who became Pope Pius XII

SUMMUS Pontifex, that is,
the SOVEREIGN Vicar of the King of kings

When the Neo-Catholic ministers scoffed at and repudiated the royal position and dignity with which God has deigned to honor, even while on this earth, those whom He has elected and drew to Himself as His friends - like to Moses (cf., Ex. 33.11) - it should not be therefore surprising that in their precipitation from the royal position of a prince... made exceedingly honorable, they hit that exceeding shame that was ever unheard of (cf., "Our Lady, Vatican II Disorientation, and the Annihilation of Many Nations")!

'Simplicity' as that effect of 'humility'? But our dear "Little Therese" says: "Sanctity consists in being what God wants us to be" and that "humility is truth." That is, humility is that supernatural disposition which inclines us to take our proper place before God and no other. Cf., "Pope Francis and Desacralization"

Salvation is in the "Blood of the Lamb"

Apocalypse XIV now unfolding (cf., our posts "The Wine of the Wrath of God" and "After Pope Benedict XVI, the 'Last' Roman Pontiff?"). The divine chastisement of world-wide conflagration (Lk. 17.29-30, cf., our post "Our Lady, Vatican II Disorientation, and the Annihilation of Many Nations") to annihilate the 'super-power' and cities and nations drunk with the wine of its immodesty, impurity, fornication, homosexuality, and blasphemies (Apoc. 14.8) is imminent - the close of our end-times period (distinct from the consummation of the world, Mt. 28.20).

They... have made them white in the Blood of the Lamb
(Apoc. 7.14) ... All things... are cleansed with Blood: and without shedding of Blood there is no remission (Heb. 9.22).

The Blood of the [Divine] Lamb can be availed of in the traditional Rite of the Sacrament of Penance (cf., our post "On Concealing Sins in Confession") and of the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist (the Traditional Latin Mass). Go to our traditional Catholic Mass Centers (links on the left-side bar of this site). Flee to the mountains... (Mt. 24.16).
