The crisis in the Church is not particular to the homosexual priest and those Bishops who promote and protect them; the larger problem is a corruption of the Church’s doctrine and liturgy that has enabled the perverts.
Among the greatest errors of the modernists is neo-ultramontanism, a heresy which elevates the person of the Bishop of Rome to a “successor of Christ” status, rather than a mere “successor of Peter”. These ‘Catholics’ see in each Pope a de facto reincarnation of Christ; a Priest and King who is to owed absolute obedience. This Papolatry has plagued the Church for 40 years and led to the loss of many tens of millions of souls and the confusion of hundreds of millions more.
The following article gets to the heart of the issue:
he chaos that engulfed the Church in the 1960s and 1970s was probably due in large part to rebellion against the tyrannical exercise of authority that had been inflicted on clergy and religious prior to the 1960s. Like other revolutions recorded by bistory, however, this revolt against tyranny did not lead to the triumph of freedom. Instead, it produced a more far-reaching and thorough tyranny, by destroying the elements of the ancien régime that had placed limits on the power of superiors. It did away with the factors listed above that had counteracted the influence of a tyrannical conception of authority in the Counter Reformation Church.
The progressive faction that seized power in seminaries and religious orders had its

It’s okay to have Communists pick and consecrate pro-abortion Communists as Bishops, and it’s okay to have heretics, pedophiles and pederast Bishops consecrate heretics, pedophiles and pederasts as Bishops, but if a Catholic Bishop consecrates Catholic priests as Bishops without permission, well, forget the good of souls, that’s like, um, you know, schism and stuff.

Father X shares the traditional doctrine:
“Let God arise and let His enemies be scattered. Let them that hate Him flee from before His face,” words taken from the Introit for this eleventh Sunday after Pentecost. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, Amen.
The great South American Jesuit missionary, Saint Peter Claver (he died in 1654)- he often spent some five consecutive hours in prayer before going out to fulfill his duties. His basic schedule, for something like forty-five years of his life, ran like this: As night fell, he slept for a short while, often three hours or so. Then from midnight to 1:00 he got up to enjoy, so he said, “the silence and peace which God granted him when all slept”.
Then either kneeling or prostrate on the ground, often with the symbols of the Passion on him- like the crown of thorns or a rope around his neck or crucifix in hand- he prayed until 6:00 in the morning. Then he went out to work.
Not surprising, like many of the saints, he had a special gift for bringing souls to God- especially those who seemed farthest away. Among them were those condemned to death by the state; those under the death penalty, the capital punishment. They became his friends, and the officials always called him in shortly before their execution. He would hear their confessions and offer Mass for them in prison. He often instructed them … Read the rest
