Remnant: Cardinal Burke is No Modernist Nor Liberal?
By: Eric Gajewski
“He may not be a full-fledged traditionalist, but he is no modernist! And he is no liberal! He is a good and holy man!” ~ The Remnant facebook December 10th
This article is written out of pure charity for those pseudo traditionalist groups and websites who are still tap-dancing with the issue of the Council. As Lefebvre pointed out these pseudo trad types still “to some degree” hide behind the Council. The latest piece of “Tom Foolery” from the false traditionalist world comes from our friends over at the Remnant. Yes, the same Remnant which continually removed my Father Hesse posts and general posts (on their facebook page) reminding them that Archbishop Lefebvre was against them and the conservative cardinals they stand behind. So many get "their britches" all twisted when I speak against Cardinal Burke for still standing behind the Council and the New Mass and yet they offer nothing theologically competent in return to defend against what I have said. Too many are attached to these conservative types, who, in the end, are not the measure of “Catholicity” (at least at this point) but we should still remain hopeful.
“He may not be a full-fledged traditionalist”. Let your yea be your yea. Oil and water do not mix. If he is not a full-fledged traditionalist then what exactly is he? Well I can answer that. He is a false traditionalist like the Remnant which is why you do not see the NEO-SSPX nor the Remnant speaking up against Cardinal Burke any longer. Somewhere along the line the “conservative” Novus Ordites became the measure of Orthodoxy and Archbishop Lefebvre’s real position was suppressed and misrepresented by the Society and their pseudo trad clique partners in crime. Michael Matt, John Salza nor Robert Siscoe and the whole lot of the rest do not follow what Archbishop Lefebvre truly taught even though they will constantly do articles on him. Lefebvre is that old uncle who they have heard about but truly don’t represent properly. For many of them economics certainly comes into play. Conferences and books must sell. Just take a look at narcissistic pseudo trad John Salza trying to push his latest "gem".
Michael Matt still ridiculously claims that Vatican II has been largely blown out of context by the liberal media...Goodness...
Father Hesse, who holds two Doctorates (one in Thomistic theology and the other in Canon Law) explains why Vatican II is not a Catholic council nor a work of the Church
He is no modernist nor liberal!. If he accepts Vatican II which is a direct implication that He accepts the heresies in Vatican II than what is he Mr. Pseudo traditionalist? Again I say this in charity. You yourselves hide behind there are novelties inVatican II and yet when has Cardinal Burke openly resisted the pastoral platform of the New Religion (cult of man). This is simply more pseudo- trad brainwash or used car salesman tactics by the Remnant. They are notorious for this as is Bishop Fellay and his gang. Again, I love Cardinal Burke and want to see him correct his errors which are SO CLEAR as it relates to his acceptance of heresy (in general) and the New Mass. The reality that he says the true Mass is a not an indicator that the faithful should be attending his mass and why? He is not keeping Catholic doctrine and Archbishop Lefebvre was adamant that prelates/priests must FIRST return to the Faith before ever attending their masses. Because Cardinal Burke is featured all over the poisoned pseudo trad network online is not reason to be going to his mass. Cardinal Burke has come to Steubenville several times and I refuse to go to his mass on the basis of this. He need not be treated like some celebrity of the false traditionalist world. The problem is the following. The false traditionalists do not see their errors both in doctrine and principle. This is why God MUST chastise. Do not get me wrong articles like this are really not going to change their minds and this is where God will step in. He knows how to convince prelates and priests that they are on the wrong path. So when the persecution starts and churches close down guess who will be here to remind you all of what I have stated?
Archbishop Lefebvre:Rome in Apostasy
“He is a good and holy man”. They say the same thing about Bishop Fellay and I think I have said enough about the "worst compromiser of them all" who has turned his back on his own founder and tried to demonize those nobly resisting. Subjectively we will all make judgements about one another. I have never met Cardinal Burke so I cannot give you my impression. After perhaps an hour of talk covering the heresies of Vatican II and the reality of the New Mass being an illicit and schismatic Mass I could get a better feel for him (why he doesnt resist). I am only concerned with the Faith on the objective level. Again, this is more brainwashing by the Remnant to try and convince their delusional following that we can follow Cardinal Burke as an example. Well, no folks we can not and he needs to recant his errors. DO NOT expect that to come from any of these false traditionalist sites (asking him to recant his errors) whether it be the Remnant or OnePeterFive.
In addition, on December 11th the Remnant states on facebook, “History was made on Saturday, December 10, 2016 when, for the first time ever, a Tridentine Pontifical High Mass was offered at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Raymond Cardinal Burke was the celebrant and, among other beautiful observations, His Eminence spoke of the glories of the Traditional Latin Mass. The Cardinal also expressed his desire to begin offering the old Mass more frequently.”
Old Mass or True Mass? He should only be saying the TRUE MASS! Again confusing language from the Remnant. I don’t want to nit pick (so it seems to false traditionalists) too much but the reality is the TLM is the only True Mass of the Latin Rite. The New Mass is an illicit/schismatic Mass of the modernists behind Vatican II which Cardinal Burke stands behind. On the basis of this one compromise alone I would refrain from his mass. The New Mass was constructed by heretics, signed off by a heretical sodomite and sold to the public as the “true mass”. It is essentially Luther’s Mass. Ding ding… does that ring a bell? Ever wonder why the modernists are trying to legitimize both the Council and the New Mass? Fr. Hesse was told by Cardinal Stickler himself that the New Mass was protestant. Marie Julie (approved by the Church) revealed to the world that Jesus and Mary warned that the New Mass was from the Jews/Masons.
Fr Hesse: Cardinal Stickler says new Mass is Protestant
|Which Gospel does Burke preach?|
On November 27, 1902 and May 10, 1904, Our Lord and Our Lady announced the conspiracy to invent the "New Mass": "I give you a WARNING. The disciples who are not of My Gospel are now working hard to remake according to their ideas and under the influence of the enemy of souls a MASS that contains words that are ODIOUS in My sight. When the fatal hour arrives when the faith of my priests is put to the test, it will be (these texts) that will be celebrated in this SECOND period ... The FIRST period is (the one) of my priesthood which exists since Me. The SECOND is (the one) of the persecution when the ENEMIES of the Faith and of Holy Religion (will impose their formulas) in the book of the second celebration ... These infamous spirits are those who crucified Me and are awaiting the kingdom of THE NEW MESSIAH."
Given the complete decline of society since Vatican II how can prelates like Cardinal Burke still suggest/imply that Francis is the problem. Vatican II was ambiguous therefore it was from the devil. Vatican II has wrought about confusion therefore it is from the devil. Vatican II is outrightly heretical teaching Masonic principles therefore it is of the devil. We dont want to hear this nonsense that we need "reclarification" of Vatican II that is pure poppycock. I truly could carry on all afternoon about this as you know. In close to this section do you see how Cardinal Burke said he wants to say the “old mass” more regularly? This means he stands behind the Protestant/Masonic New Mass. Again, compromise enough to keep clear of his masses. Archbishop Lefebvre stated, "And we have the precise conviction that this new rite of Mass expresses a new faith, a faith which is not ours, a faith which is not the Catholic Faith. This New Mass is a symbol, is an expression, is an image of a new faith, of a Modernist faith. ….Now it is evident that the new rite, if I may say so, supposes another conception of the Catholic religion-another religion.”
Msgr. Perez, "Novus Ordo Catholic??"
Quit picking on Cardinal Burke. To this weak response I say, “start taking the Faith more seriously”. There is a reason we are in this mess to begin with. There is a reason the worst chastisements the world has ever known are about to befall upon mankind and you are a part of the problem, that is, not taking the Faith seriously enough. This is a matter of principle and a matter of the Faith. Those who are offended are either ignorant or simply don’t understand the Faith. I would not be picking on Cardinal Burke per se but rather be picking on his errors. Errors can keep one from heaven according to Catholic teaching therefore we ought be praying earnestly for the Church and her leadership.
Believe it or not. I am actually rooting for Cardinal Burke as I am with any deceived by Vatican II. He can truly be a catalyst in this Counter-Revolution if he is willing to stick his neck out. If he continues to imply Francis is the problem than many traditionalists such as myself will continue to criticize him and for good reason. It is not doing the faithful any justice to continually make it seem as if the problem just started with Francis in general. The Revolution started at Vatican II and he stands behind it therefore what else can I say? If Vatican II represents the Revolution and Cardinal Burke stands behind it then how can we imply he is a traditionalist at all? Again the pseudo trads always misuse the word traditionalist. Pope St. Pius X said the true friends of the peoples are traditionalists and not the revolutionaries therefore Burke needs to be a friend of Christ and the peoples and come out against the Revolution.
TradCatKnight Radio: " Far Deeper Problem Than Francis"
Newsflash!: Cardinal Burke is not the measure of "orthodoxy". Pseudo trad sites like the Remnant and OnePeterFive live in delusional world where we can accept that Cardinal Burke still accepts Vatican II and the New Mass and think this is the "Catholic" path. This is ought who I follow in the crisis.
Please pray for Cardinal Burkes conversion I am tired of hearing about the “dubia” lately... we need to be talking about the past 50 years instead of Francis. All of Francis' encyclicals have been heretical where was Cardinal Burke when Francis said (in his first masterpiece) "the old covenant is not revoked!"
The day we say "ah this is the best we got and we ought accept it"...is the day you ought quit Catholicism altogether". Get your big boy britches on, soldier up and quit the tap-dancing. Conservatism, objectively speaking, is not going to save your soul. This is about getting it right and not simply accepting “what is best available”. Continue to pray for these “conservatives”. Could Cardinal Burke and some of the other conservative Cardinals be waiting for a more strategic time to blow the horn on Vatican II? Possibly but until then an eagles voice cries out from above. Woe, Woe, Woe… the hour is late! The Remnant and the other false traditionalist sites need to quit giving the wrong impression about these N.O. Cardinals because right now they are giving the faithful the wrong impression that Francis is the problem and they are somehow not.
Having said all of this is it any wonder The Remnant has fallen drastically in the Alexa rankings (measure of website traffic) from 120K to 200K the last few months? More and more people are tired of their false narrative on the crisis....
