Oh Vast Rome, Your Ruin Approaches

"Oh vast Rome your ruin approaches,
Not your walls, but your lifeblood and substance;
Someone with a sharp tongue will make a dent in you,
Harsh chains will be around it all." 

Century 10:65

"Rome is doomed to destruction, not actually, but metaphorically by verbal and literary assault."

Henry C. Roberts, The Complete Prophecies of Nostradamus, Crown Publishers Inc., 1994, p. 332


According to Manuela Dunn Mascetti and Peter Lorie there are numerous such verses of Nostradamus that indicate the fall of the Roman Catholic Church. (No line for line interpretation was given.) However, despite the clarity and directness of this verse that explicitly predicts the end of the Catholic Church, they do not interpret as such for reasons unknown. They also made no mention of the "someone with a sharp tongue" who is not only going to penetrate its evil body but also enter its lifeblood and paralyze vital nerves with harsh Truth.

Instead, they say that this quatrain implies there will probably be a transformation, i.e., this outdated and monolith Catholic institution will change its policies to accommodate the changing world. But this will not be the case. The Church, its lifeblood and substance, will be completely destroyed for God Almighty has sealed its fate. The seat of Satan has to be annihilated before the nations can be healed. God, His Holy Spirit and Lord Jesus, not the pope and his henchmen, must rule supreme in the Millennium of the Spirit. The Truth must set Christians free forever of the external Idols.

Oh vast Rome your ruin approaches,

"As we have already seen, Nostradamus was a firm believer in divine retribution... . His harsh view of the Church may, therefore, be not so much anti-Catholic as pro-Christ....

The "harsh one of the letters" is the investigator(s) into Vatican conspiracies whose revelations will expose the corrupt custodians currently destroying the spiritual substance of the Church. In my opinion, David Yallop will be remembered as a prime candidate for that "harsh," though uncompromisingly brave, ("one of letters") who risked his life to expose the extend of drug money laundering in the Vatican Bank.

If Nostradamus is describing divine retribution here, he may be suggesting that the first two corruptions — of fascism and drugs — will lead the Catholic clergy toward a literal plague affecting the blood in their veins... . current estimates, by homosexual activist priests such as AIDS-sufferer Father Robert L. Arpin, indicate that over 40 percent of the priesthood are practising homosexual behavior in secret.

Henry C. Roberts, The Complete Prophecies of Nostradamus, Crown Publishers Inc., 1994, p. 165


This sentence is as clear as it is foreboding. The vast empire of the Catholic Church, way past its zenith, is definitely in decline and no force on Earth will erase its devilish past that is now becoming common knowledge. No institution tortured and killed more humans that the Church. The depth of human misery and pain inflicted on the human race by the satanic siblings of the Church has no parallel in human history. Genocide is an understatement, a mild word, to express its unprecedented atrocities. The most frightening aspect of this unequaled barbarity is that its was carried with the clear conscience of men claiming to represent Lord Jesus and God. Catholics may sleep in peace, blocking out the monstrous past from their conscience. Even the latest worldwide reports of atrocities committed in their churches does little:

"Last year, a report commissioned by the Church said more than 4,000 US Roman Catholic priests had faced sexual abuse allegations in the last 50 years in cases involving more than 10,000 children, mostly boys." (BBC July 6, 2005)

But the fact will always remain that the Church is an Evil Empire, no matter the denial and lack of soul-searching. The collective amnesia of history and Truth sure brings great relief and comfort to hundreds of millions. It also fulfils the scriptural prophecy that Satan will deceive humankind. What is a better camouflage than the Church?

Today, as in the dark past, Church-selected soul traders who barter with God for their salvation hold innocent humans ransom. In return for their services they continue filling the Church coffers with obscene wealth, now running into the billions of dollars. Bonds, stocks and property of the Vatican grow in size and diversification as their Devil-fearing donors discard fat wads of cash into its vaults. Everyone is happy and smiling in the Catholic paradise brochures — the salvation seekers, the priests, the Pope ... and, according to them, even God!

Nonetheless, the siblings of Satan still continue to devour souls by declaring that outside the Church no salvation is available. One of the greatest falsehood devised by the Diabolical One is that of "infallibility." Millions of mesmerized zombies still stand in awe and reverence to their Papal Prince of Darkness, for "the support and guidance of the Holy Spirit, springing from the fact that the pope is the Christ's Vicar on Earth" is the central, most important character of Catholicism — a stark testimony of his ungodly powers. Even history is false as far as these religious prisoners are concerned. The entire papal history is that of blunders, lies, falsehood, and outright ignorance. Where was the Holy Spirit throughout the dark history of the papacy? Where is the Holy Spirit as these lines are being written? We stand on the conviction that Truth cannot be contradicted. We are absolutely convinced that the Grace of God and His Spirit descends on men who seek Him, and they are blessed with the Truth that can never ever be contradicted. We are also absolutely convinced that the grace of the Devil descends on those who claim to be Vicars of Christ and their exclusive representatives on Earth, and they are deluded with the falsehood that absolutely destroys them in the end.

Perhaps Catholic should be reminded again of just one historical fact, a centuries-old teaching of the Church that was sworn as the absolute truth by every infallible pope after infallible pontiff after infallible Vicar:

"The Roman Pontiff and the bishops are "authentic teachers, that is, teachers endowed with the authority of Christ, who preach the faith to the people entrusted to them, the faith to be believed and put into practice." The ordinary and universal Magisterium of the Pope and the bishops in communion with him teach the faithful the truth to believe, the charity to practice, the beatitude to hope for.

The supreme degree of participation in the authority of Christ is ensured by the charisma of infallibility. This infallibility extends as far as does the deposit of divine Revelation; it also extends to all those elements of doctrine, including morals, without which the savings truths of the faith cannot be preserved, explained, or observed.

J. C. Ratzinger, Catechism of the Catholic Church, U.S.C.C. Inc., Libreria Editrice Vaticana, 1994, p. 491-2


"When Galileo touched the Gospels and admitted his 'heretical depravity' in the heart of Rome, it was a solemn moment in the history of the church. Only the trial of Jesus before Pilate can surpass it in gravity.

The Founder of Modern Science, at the behest of the Roman Inquisition, was forced to affirm, in accordance with the Catholic faith, that the earth is the motionless centre of the universe. A scholar who, in any list of the world's great men, would figure in the first twenty, was condemned by a group of clerics, none of whom would figure in the first million. With Copernicus on the Index and Galileo condemned by the Inquisition, Catholic astronomers now had to choose between being good Catholics and being good members of their profession. By all the normal criteria, the immobility of the earth was Catholic doctrine. It was held by every pope, bishop and theologian for centuries. Nor was it merely implicit. When the teaching was tested, when Copernicus and Galileo cast doubt upon it, the reigning pope and popes for centuries afterwards explicitly confirmed it with the plenitude of their power. And they were wrong. The earth does move, however many popes denied it, saying it contradicts Scriptures and the faith. If Catholics today claim this was never really Catholic doctrine, can one ever be sure of any Catholic doctrine? ...

"Infallibility means, literally, immunity from error. In Christian theology, the term is applied to the whole church, which, it is believed by many Christians, cannot err in its teaching of revealed truth because it is aided by the Holy Spirit ... Papal infallibility was formally defined at the First Vatican Council (1870.) The doctrine was reaffirmed at the Second Vatican Council (1962-65.)

1988 Grolier Multimedia Encyclopedia


After eight years of house arrest, Galileo Galilei died in January 1642 ... Pope Urban VIII was not yet finished with his friend ... the body of the greatest scientist of his age was interred for almost a hundred years in the cellar of the bell tower in Santa Croce. Urban, wrong on almost everything, was at least right in the reason he gave for refusing him decent exequies: Galileo by his sins had given rise to 'the greatest scandal in Christendom'...

In the early 1980s, John Paul II, was heard to say something about 'rehabilitating Galileo', though to date nothing has come of it. After three and a half centuries, Rome is in no hurry to apologize."

P. de Rosa, Vicars of Christ: The Dark Side of the Papacy
(Peter de Rosa, Vicars of Christ: The Dark Side of the Papacy,
Bantam Press, 1988, p. 229-31.)

Not your walls, but your lifeblood and substance;


According to Peter de Rosa priests are the pontiff's primary concern. A 1971 study commissioned by the Sacred Congregation of the Faith, leaked to the press, revealed that from 1963 to 1969 over 8,000 priests had asked to be dispensed from their vows. About 3,000 others had left without waiting for permission. The study estimated that over the next five years 20,000 would leave. The estimate proved to be far too conservative. Matters were worse in countries that pontiffs had relied on for providing missionaries. Holland, for example, used to produce over 300 priests a year. Now, ordinations are almost as rare as mountains. In Ireland, at the end of 1987, there were 6,000 priests and over 1,000 ex-priests. In the United States of America there are reckoned to be 17,000 ex-priests. The average age of those who remain is a startlingly high 54. The future, too, looks bleak. Over the last twenty years, the number of seminarians in the States has fallen from 50,000 to 12,000. "All the indicators suggest a worldwide community in Napoleanic retreat. The church is still teaching but fewer and fewer are listening."

Who is the Whore?

The first thing we are told about the woman is that she is a "whore" (Revelation 17:1), that earthly kings "have committed fornication" with her (verse 2), and that "all the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication" (verse 3). Why would a city be called a whore and be accused of having committed fornication with kings? Such an indictment would never be made of London or Moscow or Paris—or any other ordinary city. It wouldn't make sense.

Fornication and adultery are used in the Bible in both the physical and the spiritual sense. Of Jerusalem God said, "How is the faithful city become a harlot!" (Isaiah 1:21). Israel, whom God had set apart from all other peoples to be holy for His purposes, had entered into unholy, adulterous alliances with the idol-worshiping nations about her. She had "committed adultery with stones and with stocks [idols]" (Jeremiah 3:9); "and with their idols have they committed adultery" (Ezekiel 23:37). The entire chapter of Ezekiel 16 explains lsrael's spiritual adultery in detail, both with heathen nations and with their false gods, as do many other passages.

There is no way that a city could engage in literal, fleshly fornication. Thus we can only conclude that John, like the prophets in the Old Testament, is using the term in its spiritual sense. The city, therefore, must claim a spiritual relationship with God. Otherwise such an allegation would be meaningless.

Though it is built on seven hills, there would be no reason to accuse Rio de Janeiro of spiritual fornication. It makes no claim of having a special relationship with God. And though Jerusalem has that relationship, it cannot be the woman riding on the beast, for it is not built on seven hills. Nor does it meet the other criteria by which this woman is to be identified.

Against only one other city in history could a charge of fornication be leveled. That city is Rome, and more specifically Vatican City. She claims to have been the worldwide headquarters of Christianity since its beginning and maintains that claim to this day. Her pope enthroned in Rome claims to be the exclusive representative of God, the vicar of Christ. Rome is the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church, and in that too she is unique.


Rome! Your time has come. Your followers have already begun to abandon you. Surely your vacant churches testify to this fact. The maggots have begun to eat your entrails. It will take some time before you will smell the stench of decay and death within yourself. Your body will be foraged by the birds of carrion and your bones picked clean. In this century you will be devoid of any lifeblood and substance. Mark these words and be forewarned — The Holy Spirit of God Almighty has come to destroy you, the Whore of the Seven Hills,  just as predicted in the Bible and foreseen by many.

Maybe you have forgotten the three visions shown to Lucia de Santis (10), Francesco Marto (9) and Giacinta Marto (7) on the 13th. of May 1917 in the village of Fatima in Portugal. The first revealed the world wars and the second the fall of communism. Both came true. But what is the third vision that you have hidden from humanity? What is the frightful third vision that you are afraid to tell your religious captives? Isn't it true that it reveals the fall of the Vatican City brought about by The Mother of GOD!? Weren't the visions revealing the destruction of the Catholic Church by the Holy Spirit sworn into strict secrecy? Isn't this vision much more destructive to your empire than all the scandals, blasphemies and genocide of your corrupt history?

Nostradamus had already seen your fall about 400 years earlier. The children of Fatima just confirmed the inevitable decades ago. The SPIRIT of the Living GOD has already laid the groundwork for your destruction and before the first century of the Age of Aquarius ends you will witness your death — great Rome, be forewarned!

"The great star will burn for seven days,
The cloud will cause two suns to appear:
A great howling will be heard from morning to night
When the great pontiff will change country.
Shortly before the monarch is assassinated,
Castor and Pollux in the ship with a bearded star:
The public fund emptied by land and sea,
Pisa, Asti, Ferrara, Turin land under order." 

Century 2:14-15

"During the summer of 1994 some twenty-one meteorites crashed into the planet Jupiter, with a force thousands of times greater than any nuclear bomb ... a meteorite hitting the earth and the moving of the pope — it can only be presumed that this will happen in the future ... There are a number of specific predictions which tell us of the problems the Church will experience towards the end of the millennium . . .

In Greek mythology, Castor and Pollux, the heavenly twins, were the protectors of seamen. In this context they represent Saints Peter and Paul, and their ship the Catholic Church. The bearded star is a comet or meteorite, traditionally an evil omen, and the conjunction of these emblems portends difficulties for the Church in uncharted waters. We can relate this reference to the expected changes in the general condition of organized religion throughout the "civilized" world."

"The Catholic church has made it a point of faith that popes are successors of St Peter as Bishop of Rome. But Peter never had that title; he was only invested with it centuries after he died. The pope says mass with Peter's trunk beneath his feet. Two hundred feet above his head there is something far more important than Peter's remains: words of the Lord. In letters five feet high, running round the dome, is the famous of all puns: 'Tu es Petrus, et super hanc petram aedificabo ecclesiam meam, et portae inferi non pravalebunt adversus eam' — 'Thou art Peter and upon this Rock I will build my church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it.' Scholars assume that in the original Aramaic, the pun was perfect: Peter and Rock are both Cepha.

We are living in the 21st century where humans have easy access to vast information, and the freedom to research, cross-examine and expose untruth. The information technology empowers hundreds of millions instant access to the works of such authors. Gone are the dark ages where religious regimes could muzzle voices of dissent by threat of torture and death, and keep illiterate masses in the dark. Gone also are the days where humankind could be shielded from the Messengers of other existing religions. We are now living in a global village where transmigration keeps the world in a state of ever increasing flux. Humans are now constantly exposed to the religious beliefs of their fellow humans. Organized religion will be the one of the first fatalities of this Information Age as seekers of the Spirit re-examine various scriptures and discover that all demand that they seek the Kingdom of God within, a process that all religious institutions are far from delivering. The surety that it is now Resurrection Time is the deathblow to them. The seekers of Truth are not going to wait for these religious dinosaurs to wake up from their spiritual sleep and plod towards this Kingdom within, something that is yet a mystery despite millennia. They are on the brink of extinction.

Pope is another horrible fake guru sitting here. Then we have another one that is of Canterbury sitting there. All of them are false gurus — know nothing about Kundalini, don't know anything of Brahma, ... So they want to propound that they are the solution, achieving nothing, spoiling the name of Christ and doing all kinds of things against Him, stupidly, without knowing the Divine.

Then we have many in Islam. Horrible people, just the opposite of Muhammad Sahib, who will say wrong things in the name of Muhammad Sahib. Its something like one can understand that a thief has to become an impostor to behave like a king to show that he is not a thief, and to have his thieving done. This is how they are — all of them! 

Right from India we have many brahmins of the same category. This priesthood has to go. Wherever there is a priest know there is a Mafia, is a sophisticated Mafia!


Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
You Are Gurus,
Gmunden, Austria — July 6, 1986


Both these quatrains relate to the fall and demise of the Catholic Church. Celestial signs will precede this fall but the pontiff will not change country as interpreted. Popes will be feared for their bad religion as much as the Devil for its evil empire, and the younger generation will flee from the Church likes bats out of hell. This will take time as Christian fanatics will first refuse to believe the colossal web of deception surrounding the Pope and will rally round him. Over the years they will not be able to stem the relentless tide of Truth. The Catholic Church will be destroyed as prophesied in Revelation. These Princes of Carnal Life who pretended to be Vicars of Christ will rule no more — great monarch be forewarned!

Castor and Pollux are in Greek mythology the heavenly twins who protect seaman. Here they refer to Peter and Paul, and their ship is the Church. Peter protested to Shri Jesus about his loyalty when Jesus warned His disciples that they would abandon Him (Matt. 26:33-34; Mark 14:29; Luke 22:33.) Peter's hypocrisy, cowardice and betrayal becomes apparent when he denies Shri Jesus' three times (Matt. 26:69-75; Mark 14:66-73; Luke 22:54-62; John 18:25-27.) as prophesied by the Saviour, "Verily I say unto thee, that this day, even in this night, before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice" (Mark 14:30). And Shri Jesus had also warned earlier that Satan would take him! "Get away behind me, Satan; thou art an offence to me, for thy mind is not on the things that are God" (Matthew 16:23 & Mark 8:33). Yet Peter managed to be the first pope of Christendom.

According to Peter de Rosa the title 'Bishop of Rome' bestowed on Peter does not tally with facts and other matters are far from clear:

  • How long did Peter live in Rome? A late fourth-century report says twenty-five years, but there is no historical basis for this. Today, historians indicate that Peter lived in Rome for three or four years at most.

  • How could a leader or overseer of a small early Christian community be compared with a modern bishop bristling with power and jurisdiction. There is no record that he took charge of the community.

  • Peter was never the bishop in Jerusalem after Jesus' death. James, Lord Jesus' brother, was.

  • There is another alarming fact. In the earliest lists of the bishops of Rome, Peter's name was missing. For example, Iraneaus, Bishop of Lyons from 178-200 AD enumerated all the Roman bishops up to the twelfth (Eleutherius.) According to him, the first bishop of Rome was not Peter or Paul but Linus! Peter's name never appeared anywhere! The Apostolic Constitution in the year 270 also named Linus, appointed by St Paul, as the first bishop of Rome. After Linus came Clement, chosen by Peter. And the mystery deepens. Even Eusebius, in all his writings, never once spoke of Peter as Bishop of Rome! So who appointed Peter as the first Bishop of Rome — Christ or Satan?

Paul, a cruel prosecutor of the early Christians, never met Christ.

"In his letters to the churches he had established at Corinth, Ephesus, Thessalonica, Galatia, Philippi, and Colossae, Paul was uninterested in recording the facts of Jesus' life and death. Instead, he teased out their inner significance, which he commended to the weak and divided Christian communities he had founded ...  

Dr. Peter B. Clarke[(Consulting Editor], The World's Religions, A Reader's Digest Book, 1993, p. 50-1


Yet he was able to mold Christianity profoundly and now occupies overwhelming prominence in the Bible, his gain proportional to the Savior's loss!

Vawsttracts of the Christian forest have been stripped and supplanted by the duo, and Shri Jesus relegated to scarce virgin pockets that are far and few between. Numerous books published since the release of the Dead Sea Scrolls in 1991 portray Paul as a liar and traitor. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi has said that he was an evil man. Others have found his evil intentions in the Bible itself!

"Gautama, the Buddha, taught that the Wheel of Dharma — the teaching of truth, is like a great wheel which, 2,500 years from its first revolution, runs out of momentum. The next world teacher, who is given the name "Maitreya" meaning "friend," would appear around the year A.D. 2000 and will restore momentum and power to all those seeking after religious truth.

Nostradamus corresponds to this prophecy with the Quatrain 24 Century 4.

This quatrain predicts that organized religions will be destroyed by words of truth spoken by the "friend" through the "human flame" of a new religion. In the original French the word "sacred" is represented by the word "saint" written in the archaic form with an "f" written for "s," thereby implying that the "saint" is "faint" or false." "

J. Hogue, Nostradamus: The New Revelations, Element Books, p. 243.

These are the satanic origins to the birth of the papal empire. A billion Catholics sleep in a serene slumber, assured that their mighty popes have the power to move heaven and earth. The balance 700 million non-Catholics also sleep with equal ease. One billion, seven hundred million Christians refuse to acknowledge the satanic birth of their religion. The Resurrection assures that you will now toss and turn in your sleep.

Both Peter and Paul are regarded as the pillars of Christianity — towering icons of hypocrisy, cowardice, betrayal, persecution, lies, deceit and hidden evil! Peter are Paul are more than ill omens for the Catholic Church; they are the twin death knells that have begun tolling around the world announcing the funeral of the Church. They are the harbingers of the death to your Evening Empire — great pontiff be forewarned!

Peter, the first Pope of the Catholic Church, was overpowered by the Devil and thus was able to deny Jesus not once but thrice! In spite of the Saviour's dire warning of the impeding arrival of Satan no one heeded Him. Why? If during the time of Shri Jesus' itself the Devil had overpowered Peter and made him deny Jesus thrice what hope was there of the Prince of Darkness ever leaving Rome? Peter was a excellent receptacle, a warm womb from where the Beast incubated and nourished itself by devouring countless souls that surrendered to the Church. The Christian world allowed the Diabolical One to penetrate their religion from the very beginning itself — through Peter. And the Evil One never left ever since and sustained His satanic rule through subsequent popes — till today! All churches that trace their origins from Peter have darkness in them — history is the witness to this Truth! Fools and fundamentalists, open your eyes and ears and see the work of the Evil One in your houses of worship.

Church faces record abuse payout

"A Kentucky judge has provisionally approved the largest payout yet in the US Catholic Church abuse scandal.

The settlement, between a diocese in the state and an unknown number of sexual abuse victims, amounts to a record $120m (68m).

The class-action suit accused the Church of covering up child abuse by priests and others over 50 years.

The scandal has cost the Church more than $1bn in payouts since 1950,an Associated Press review says."

The Great Apostacy of the "Last Times" Announced by Holy Scripture

To someone who was questioning her on the content of the Third Secret, Sister Lucy one day replied: "It's in the Gospel, and in the Apocalypse, read them." She has also confided to Father Fuentes that the Virgin Mary has made her see clearly that "We are in the last times of the world."

This does not mean, one must emphasize, the time of the end of the world and of the last judgement, since the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary must come first. Cardinal Ratzinger himself discreetly alluding to the content of the Secret of Fatima, has mentioned three important elements: "The dangers threatening the faith," "the importance of the last times" and the fact that the prophecies "contained in this Third Secret correspond to what has been announced in Scripture." We even know that one day Lucy indicated Chapters 8 and 13 of the Apocalypse.

That is why, in the last two chapters of my book, I take up the great teachings of Our Lord, of St. Paul and St. John so ignored today! - Announcing the troubles, the heresy and finally the great apostasy which will arise in the Church during the "last times." And the objective comparison of the prophecies of Scripture - very particularly those of the Apocalypse - and the great prophecy of the Virgin of Fatima, at the dawn of our Century shows indeed very numerous and quite striking parallels.

Brother Michael of the Holy Trinity


Finally and especially, for the good of the Church. While the Church, without a doubt, is going through the most serious crisis in her history, while heresies of all sorts are taught and propagated, poisoning everywhere the people of God, while her "self-destruction" continues without let up since 1960, and when the "smoke of satan"(20) has penetrated into the holy place, to use some expressions of Paul VI, it would be a very great pity and certainly even criminal to continue to neglect, to disregard, to despise the salutary words of the Virgin Mary - concerning precisely this 'crisis of faith' that we are undergoing. Since the Queen of Heaven as early as 1917 had foretold the danger and since She had certainly indicated the real causes of it, and moreover, since She had proposed the effective remedies, is it not a terrible shame that these remedies intended to be publicly made known in 1960 have yet to be revealed to us? Is it not scandalous that for 25 years, millions of souls have been suffering in this "diabolical disorientation" and have been running the risk of being lost eternally without the pastors of the Church deigning to accept the extraordinary aid that Heaven is offering them?"       

Brother Michael of the Holy Trinity


"For the greater part of human history, men and women have turned to religion not only for moral guidance, but also for answers to the fundamental questions of existence. How was the universe created and how will it end? What is the origin of life and mankind? Only in the last few centuries has science begun to make its own contributions to such issues. The resulting clashes are well documented. From its origin with Galileo, Copernicus and Newton, through Darwin and Einstein, to the age of computers and high technology, modern science has cast a cold and sometimes threatening light on so many deep-rooted religious beliefs. Accordingly, there has grown a feeling that science and religion are inherently incompatible and antagonistic. It is a belief encouraged by history. The early attempts by the Church to hold back the flood-gates of scientific advance have left a deep suspicion of religion among the scientific community. For their part, scientists have demolished a lot of cherished religious beliefs and have come to be regarded by many as faith-wreckers."       

Professor Paul Davies, God and the New Physics, Simon and Schuster Inc., 1983, p. 5


"Every pontiff up to the nineteenth century condemned interest-taking on loans (usury) under any circumstances whether interest charged was high or low, whether the loan was made to a poor peasant or an emperor. For centuries the church denounced interest-taking and has never officially withdrawn its ban. Yet today the Vatican has its own bank, incorporated in 1924 by Pius XII, lately the focus of terrible financial scandals."       

Peter de Rosa, Vicars of Christ: The Dark Side of the Papacy, Bantam Press, 1988


Archdiocese in abuse lawsuits to file bankruptcy

PORTLAND, Oregon (AP)—The Portland Archdiocese said Tuesday that it will file for bankruptcy, becoming the first Roman Catholic diocese in the nation to seek bankruptcy court relief in the face of accusations of sexual abuse.

The Chapter 11 bankruptcy action, planned for Tuesday afternoon, puts an immediate halt to a priest abuse case scheduled to begin in Portland on Tuesday. It involves the Rev. Maurice Grammond, who was accused of molesting more than 50 boys in the 1980s.

Plaintiffs in two lawsuits involving Grammond have sought a total of more than $160 million.

The archdiocese and its insurers already have paid more than $53 million to settle more than 130 claims by people who say they were abused by priests.

Dozens of other claims are pending, and at Tuesday's news conference, church officials said they "could not afford what the plaintiffs are asking."

"The pot of gold is pretty much empty right now," Archbishop John Vlazny said.

Religious revival worries many Russians


Moscow — Eighty years after the Bolsheviks trampled on icons . . . religion is celebrating a revival not seen since Greek missionaries brought their orthodoxy to Russia a millennium ago. But many Russians are troubled by the lingering question of how much the church enslaved itself to Soviet authorities in return for being tolerated by the Kremlin. Some also question whether the church is collaborating with the dark forces of nationalism and racism to expand its power. What worries liberal Russians is not the racist rant of some clergymen, but the hierarchy's outspoken support for a draft law on religion that, if passed by parliament and applied indiscriminately, can outlaw orthodox fundamentalists as "heretics" and all the West's Protestant denominations as "ungodly sects." The Bishops' Synod has already approved a list of offenders the law should ban. "All Protestant denominations are on this (list) circulated to all governing church bodies and the Duma (parliament)," said Vyacheslav Polosin, a former priest who is advising the Duma on drafting the new law ...

But there remains the perception among a number of Russians that the priesthood has relapsed into the same habits that made it an easy target for the Bolsheviks in 1917: avarice, arrogance, abuse of power, anti-semitism and intolerance. Requests for interviews with Patriarch Alexy II and the Metropolitan of Moscow to obtains the church's comments on the perceptions and charges were not granted. Polosin said he shed his cassock in disgust with a clergy that he believes to be corrupt. "It's a known fact the church received 10,000 tons of tabacco from abroad as humanitarian aid and exempt of taxes and sold it on the commercial market for its own gain. The church does the same with vodka, wine and gold," he said. In its zeal to purify Russians of foreign influence and heretics, some of the clergy frequently have allied themselves not only with nationalist fanatics but even nostalgic communists ... former security chief Alexander Lebed recently described Mormons as "mold and filth come to destroy the state," . . .

The Moscow Patriarchy — the Russian Orthodox equivalent to the Vatican — is often criticized for its liberal choice of financial partners to restore Russia's 70,000 churches, two-thirds of which were ransacked and devastated in Soviet days. Cathedrals like the symbolic Christ the Saviour in central Moscow, dynamited by Stalin in 1931 but now under reconstruction, are rumored to be money laundries for Russia's Mafia. Below the $500 million Christ the Saviour project, the patriarchy is building a sumptuous residential complex equipped with saunas, sports facilities, restaurants, guest houses and garages ... it has bred distrust in a priesthood perceived as more preoccupied with collecting alms than saving souls. Vladmir Soloukhin, 72, author of books on religion and an avid collector of icons, was asked whether the time has come to return such collections to the churches. "No way!" he said. "The priests would only sell them."

"In bed with the rulers

Not only does Rome's pope call himself the vicar of Christ, but the Church he heads claims to be the one true Church and the bride of Christ. Christ's bride, whose hope is to join her Bridegroom in heaven, is to have no earthly ambitions. Yet the Vatican is obsessed with earthly enterprise, as history proves; and in furtherance of these goals it has been, exactly as John foresaw in his vision, engaged in adulterous relationships with the kings of the earth. That fact is acknowledged even by Catholic historians.

Christ said to His disciples, "If ye were of the world, the world would love his own; but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you" (John 15:19). The Catholic Church, however, is very much of this world. Her popes have built an unrivaled worldwide empire of property, wealth, and influence. Nor is empire-building an abandoned feature of the past. We have already seen that Vatican II clearly states that the Roman Catholic Church today still ceaselessly seeks to bring under its control all mankind and all their goods.

Popes have long claimed dominion over the world and its peoples. Pope Gregory XIs papal bull of 1372 (In Coena Domini) claimed papal dominion over the entire Christian world, secular and religious, and excommunicated all who failed to obey the popes and to pay them taxes. In Coena was confirmed by subsequent popes and in 1568 Pope Pius V swore that it was to remain an eternal law.

Pope Alexander VI (1492-1503) claimed that all undiscovered lands belonged to the Roman Pontiff, for him to dispose of as he pleased in the name of Christ as His vicar. King John II of Portugal was convinced that in his Bull Romanus Pontifex the pope had granted all that Columbus discovered exclusively to him and his country. Ferdinand and Isabel of Spain, however, thought the pope had given the same lands to them. In May 1493 the Spanish-born Alexander VI issued three bulls to settle the dispute.

In the name of Christ, who had no place on this earth that He called his own, this incredibly evil Borgia pope, claiming to own the world, drew a north-south line down the global map of that day, giving everything on the east to Portugal and on the west to Spain. Thus by papal grant, "out of the plenitude of apostolic power," Africa went to Portugal and the Americas to Spain. When Portugal "succeeded in reaching India and Malaya, they secured the confirmation of these discoveries from the Papacy..." There was a condition, of course: "to the intent to bring the inhabitants ... to profess the Catholic Faith." It Was largely Central and South America which, as a consequence of this unholy alliance between church and state, had Roman Catholicism forced upon them by the sword and remain Catholic to this day. North America (with the exception of Quebec and Louisiana) was spared the dominance of Roman Catholicism because it was settled largely by Protestants.

Nor have the descendants of Aztecs, Incas, and Mayas forgotten that Roman Catholic priests, backed by the secular sword, gave their ancestors the choice of conversion (which often meant slavery) or death. They made such an outcry when John Paul II in a recent visit to Latin America proposed elevating Junipero Serra (a major eighteenth-century enforcer of Catholicism among the Indians) to sainthood that the pope was forced to hold the ceremony in secret.

Christ said, "My kingdom is not of this world; otherwise my servants would fight." The popes, however, have fought with armies and navies in the name of Christ to build a huge kingdom which is very much of this world. And to amass their earthly empire they have repeatedly engaged in spiritual fornication with emperors, kings, and princes. Claiming to be the bride of Christ, the Roman Catholic Church has been in bed with godless rulers down through history, and these adulterous relationships continue to this day."       


Rome has practiced evil to gather her wealth, for the "golden cup" is filled with "abominations and filthiness." Much of the wealth of the Roman Catholic Church was acquired through the confiscation of the property of the pitiful victims of the Inquisitions. Even the dead were exhumed to face trial and property was taken from their heirs by the Church. One historian writes:

The punishments of the lnquisition did not cease when the victim was burned to ashes, or immured for life in the Inquisition dungeons. His relatives were reduced to beggary by the law that all his possessions were forfeited. The system offered unlimited opportunities for loot....This source of gain largely accounts for the revolting practice of what has been called "corpse-trials."... That the practice of confiscating the property of condemned heretics was productive of many acts of extortion, rapacity and corruption will be doubted by no one who has any knowledge either of human nature or of the historical documents.... no man was safe whose wealth might arouse cupidity, or whose independence might provoke revenge.

Most of Rome's wealth has been acquired through the sale of salvation. Untold billions of dollars have been paid to her by those who thought they were purchasing heaven on the installment plan for themselves or loved ones. The practice continues to this day — blatantly where Catholicism is in control, less obviously here in the United States. No greater deception or abomination could be perpetrated. When Cardinal Cajetan, sixteenth-century Dominican scholar, complained about the sale of dispensations and indulgences, the Church hierarchy was indignant and accused him of wanting "to turn Rome into an uninhabited desert, to reduce the Papacy to impotence, to deprive the pope... of the pecuniary resources indispensable for the discharge of his office." 

In addition to such perversions of the gospel which have led hundreds of millions astray, there are the further abominations of corrupt banking practices, laundering of drug money, trading in counterfeit securities, and dealings with the Mafia (fully documented in police and court records), which the Vatican and her representatives around the world have long employed. Nino Lo Bello, former Business Week correspondent in Rome and Rome bureau chief for New York Journal of Commerce, writes that the Vatican is so closely allied with the Mafia in Italy that "many people ... believe that Sicily ... is nothing more than a Vatican holding."

The Roman Catholic Church is by far the wealthiest institution on earth. Yes, one hears from Rome periodic pleas for money-persuasive appeals claiming that the Vatican cannot maintain itself on its limited budget and needs monetary assistance. Such pleas are unconscionable ploys. The value of innumerable sculptures by such masters as Michelangelo, paintings by the world's greatest artists, and countless other art treasures and ancient documents which Rome possesses (not only at the Vatican but in cathedrals around the world) is beyond calculation. At the World Synod of Bishops in Rome, England's Cardinal Heenan proposed that the Church sell some of these superfluous treasures and give the proceeds to the poor. His suggestion was not well-received.

Christ and His disciples lived in poverty. He told His followers not to lay up treasure on this earth but in heaven. The Roman Catholic Church has disobeyed that command and has accumulated a plethora of riches without equal, of which "the Roman Pontiff is the supreme administrator and steward.... 14 There is no church, no city which is a spiritual entity, no religious institution past or present which even comes close to possessing the wealth of the Roman Catholic Church."       



The Roman Catholic Church, however, has insisted upon celibacy even though many Popes, among them Sergius III (904-11), John X (914-28), John XII (955-63), Benedict V (964), Innocent VIII (1484-92), Urban VIII (1623-44), and Innocent X (1644-55), as well as millions of cardinals, bishops, archbishops, monks, and priests throughout history, have repeatedly violated such vows. Not only has celibacy made sinners of the clergy who engage in fornication, but it makes harlots out of those with whom they secretly cohabit. Rome is indeed "The Mother of harlots"! Her identification as such is unmistakable. No other city, church, or institution in the history of the world is her rival in this particular evil.

History is replete with sayings that mocked the church's false claim to celibacy and revealed the truth: "The holiest hermit has his whore" and "Rome has more prostitutes than any other city because she has the most celibates" are examples. Pius II declared that Rome was "the only city run by bastards" [sons of popes and cardinals]. Catholic historian and former Jesuit Peter de Rosa writes:

Popes had mistresses of fifteen years of age, were guilty of incest and sexual perversions of every sort, had innumerable children, were murdered in the very act of adultery [by jealous husbands who found them in bed with their wives].... In the old Catholic phrase, why be holier than the pope?

As for abominations, even Catholic historians admit that among the popes were some of the most degenerate and unconscionable ogres in all of history. Their numerous outrageous crimes, many of which are almost beyond belief, have been recited by many historians from preserved documents that reveal the depths of papal depravity, some of which we will cover in later chapters. To call any of these men "His Holiness, Vicar of Christ" makes a mockery of holiness and of Christ. Yet the name of each one of these unbelievably wicked popes, mass murderers, fornicators, robbers, warmongers, some guilty of the massacre of thousands - is emblazoned in honor on the Church's official list of popes. These abominations that John foresaw not only occurred in the past but continue to this very day."
