Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano's Open Letter to Confused Priests on Obedience, Resistance, Jorge Bergoglio, and Vaccines, posted by Rene Henry Gracida, Bishop Emeritus of Corpus Christi Texas.
All faithful Catholics, ordained and laity alike, need to read this letter.
How do we know that what Abp. Vigano says in this open letter is true? We know by our collective Catholic Sensus fidei; that sure and strong inner sense of what is Catholic and what is not. By two thousand years of unwavering repetition of truth, by our credal faith, by our Ten ommandments, by our unchanged Word of God and by the Holy Ghost, all of which are in agreement, and all of which contributed to the making of our well formed Catholic consciences.
Read the letter fully, carefully and in Catholic humility. And note well that Catholic humility does not mean becoming a door-mat. The Catholic does not just roll over and obey an order obviously opposed to the whole Sensus Fidei just because it is the order of someone in authority on the matter.
Our Catholic fidelity goes first to God Almighty, before any mere man.
The Word of God will outlast any man, and all men.
The faithful Catholic can never accept any intrinsically evil thing, nor can the faithful ever except the profanation of the Eucharist in the Church, no matter what anyone in ecclesial authority says to the contrary.
All members of the American military should note this too; there is a remarkable similarity between the obedient relationship of man to God and the obedient relationship of the American military to the Constitution.
The faithful military can never obey any illegal order, according to the Uniform Code of Military Justice, for the oath they took was of obedience to and defense of the American Constitution, and not to any mere man.
Today's Catholic faithful have before them a seeming majority of ordained clerics who are ravening wolves in sheep's clothing. We have the Islamo-Commie-Homo Fr. James Martin playacting at being a real Catholic and a Catholic Priest. We have the Islamo-Commie-Homo Blase Cupich playacting at being a real Catholic and a Catholic Cardinal. And we have Jorge Bergoglio playacting at being a real Catholic and a Catholic Pope.
Now, by ordination and succession, Martin is indeed a Priest, Cupich is indeed a Cardinal and Bergoglio is indeed the Pope; granted.
But we all know, by our Sensus Fidei, that they are also corrupt men.
Thus, we the faithful need to pay very close attention to their orders before we obey them. They have put themselves under great suspicion.
Similarly, America's military face a seeming majority of elites, in the military and in the government who are enemies of the very Constitution they are sworn to uphold, adhere to and defend.
Especially when the Commander In Chief of the military is an invalidly elected President who's foreign and domestic sponsors, who's political party, who's media and who's minions in the courts and throughout the government bureaucratic swamp are proactively preventing the evidence of their own crimes from being heard in any court or seen by the public. Never in American history has anything been more censored.
Catholic faithful and American military are alike in this:
We cannot and we must not obey any illegal order.
All of our first allegiance is to God, and second, to our Constitution.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.
Sign the Letter to your Bishop, and make our Church Catholic again.
Get behind President Trump, and make America Constitutional again.
With fear and trembling, work out your salvation--Phil 2:12

Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
