Salus populi romani: April 1, 2020

Perpetual Supplica


This devotion is inspired by the request made by Our Lady Herself in
Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerich’s Vision of

August 25, 1822: “I know not now how I went to Rome last night, but I found myself near the church of Santa Maria Maggiore. Around it I saw crowds of poor, pious souls, in great distress and anxiety on account of the Pope’s disappearance and the agitation and alarming reports throughout the city. Led by one common impulse, they had come to invoke the Mother of God. They did not expect to find the church open, they intended only to pray outside. But I was inside, I opened the door and they entered, astounded at the door’s opening of itself. I was standing aloof where they could not see me. There was no service, only the chancel-lamps were burning, and the people knelt in quiet prayer. Then the Mother of God appeared. She said that great tribulations were at hand; that the people must pray earnestly with extended arms, if only for the length of three Our Fathers, for it was thus that her Son had prayed for them upon the Cross; that they should rise at midnight to pray thus; that they should continue to come to Her church which they would always find open; and that they should, above all, pray for the extirpation of the Church of Darkness. … I know not whether the people saw the apparition or not, but they must have been impressed by something supernatural for, when the Blessed Virgin said they should pray to God with arms extended, all lifted up their arms … It seemed to be an association of prayer.” From this time Sister Emmerich assisted nightly at the pious exercises at Santa Maria Maggiore. (The Life and Revelations of Ann Catherine Emmerich, Book 2)

Second Bergoglian Cardinal struck with COVID-19

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The Archdiocese of Ouagadougou, in the African nation of Burkina Faso announced today that Archbishop Philippe Nakellentuba Ouédraogo has tested positive for the Coronavirus.

Burkina Faso is a land locked nation in Western Africa, bordering Mali to the north, Niger to the East, Cote d’Ivorie, Ghana, Togo and Benin to the south. It has been ravaged by ISIS in West Africa and massacres of Catholics and Pagans by Islamic tribes. Burkina Faso was formerly called the Upper Volta. Ouagadougou is the capital of the nation with 2 million souls. The United Nations estimates the national population at 20 million.

Archbishop Ouédraogo was made Bishop of Ouahigouya by Pope John Paul II in 1996, and Archbishop of Ouagadougou on May 13, 2009 by His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI. He was named as a cardinal by Jorge Mario Bergoglio on Feb. 22, 2014.  The Archbishop is currently 69 years old.

So far, only two high prelates have been struck by the Wuhan virus, both of them named as cardinals by Bergoglio. The other is Angelo De Donatis, who was reported on Sunday to have tested positive for the infection. De Donatis is 65 years of age.

None of the Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church appointed by Popes John Paul II or Benedict XVI are reportedly sick from this coronavirus.

However, the Most Rev. Angelo Moreschi, Vicar Apostolic of Gambella, in Ethiopia, while convalescing from serious illness in Italy, died at the age of 67, reportedly with coronavirus. Bishop Moreschi was named a Bishop by Pope Benedict XVI in 2009.

[simple-payment id=”5295″] intentionally spreading false information about COVID-19

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

If you want to assess who is behind the promotion of Corona Hype and the panic which results from it, you need go no further than and do a search. Here are the results I got. First the search string, and then the results:

COVID-19 is not more lethal than the flu

Under this rubric you get on the first page of 10 results, you get 9 which say that COVID-19 is more lethal than the flu. Evidently is employing AI to make their search engine break down totally and give you the opposite result of your search. This is clear evidence of bias and manipulation for the purpose of controlling the narrative on Covid-19, a narrative which is based on the Big Lie of the WHO health director who claimed that this coronavirus is 340 times more deadly than the winter fu.

On the second page of results you get 7 of 10 which present the same false or incorrect information about COVID-19.

On the third page of results you get 3 of 10 which present false information, 6 of 10 which present information about other topics, and only 1 out of 10 which actually corresponds to the search!

So, if you want the score, out of 30 results, gave me 1 or 2 which was correct, 9 which are off topic, and 19 which are give false information.

So that means that is 3-7% correct in its search results, and 93-97% of the time wrong.

By choosing to search for “COVID-19 is not more lethal than the flu” I gave every opportunity to give the correct results.

If I do the same search at FromRome.Info, I get 6 results and no false results.

This conjunction of being so wrong and being so right is inexplicable, because if you search for “COVID-19 is not more lethal than the flu, site:FromRome.Info”, gives you 667 results.  This proves that knows of those 6 articles at FromRome.Info, but they don’t want anyone to know of them. Also by claiming the 6 articles at FromRome.Info produce 667 results in their search engine, I think they are trying to tell me that FromRome.Info is not following the narrative. It’s off by one word, “not”!

Tomás Luis de Victoria: Office for Palm Sunday

Having lingered among the works of Palestrina, the most famous composer of sacred polyphony in Italy in the 16th century, we pass to Tomás Luis de Victoria, the most famous composer of the same, in 16th Century Spain. Today we feature is Office for Palm Sunday, which is a sublime celebration of Our Lord Jesus Christ’s Entry into Jerusalem. De Victoria composed this ornate piece, because in the time of the Council of Trent, the Catholic faithful had the habit of attending the Divine Office during Holy Week, which was celebrated with great reverence by a clergy who had great faith and great respect for things divine.

This performance is by the famous Monks of Santo Domingo de Silos (Espagne).

FromRome.Info features at 5 P.M. daily, Rome time, a selection of sacred music for the edification of our readers, so that they can better grasp how contrary to the very nature of Catholic liturgy were the so called “reforms” of Vatican II.


Two grave errors of Canon Peters in the Corona Panic

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The Big Lie becomes the premise which the small minded will never question, and what his mind consequently thinks or judges on that basis will be utterly corrupted.

A case in point is Canon Peter’s opinions on Sacraments during the Corona Panic, as expressed in his post entitled, Canonical deep breath time. Canon Peter’s accepts all 3 Big Lies which I recently listed: that the Church in conforming Her pastoral practice to modern times does not risk damaging the traditio fidei, that Pope Benedict in renouncing the ministerium renounced the office of the  papacy, and that the Coronavirus is 340 times more deadly than the common cold.

So consequently, do not expect Canon Peters to be any more accurate about canonical or sacramental questions than a man with 1/340th of the IQ of a normal person, or 1/340th of the eyesight of a normal person, or 1/340th of the memory of a normal person. We should not compare persons to cellphones, but no one would want to use a cellphone with 1/340th capacity.

I bluster in words, of course. Because the problem is much worse than a 340x reduction.

Because when you accept any false premise, all your conclusions are 100% false.

So now I will address Canon Peter’s false conclusions and show what the truth is:

First Canon Peters says:

1. Do not assume that some wrong, even stupid, policies being announced by various levels of Church government are necessarily canonically illegal policies. Christ, who foresaw COVID19, nevertheless gave considerable authority to his Church, specifically to his bishops and popes, to formulate how the Church would carry on his mission in these days. People should be very wary of concluding that a given a local Church policy is canonically illegal and can therefore simply be disregarded.

Here is your classical positivist. Throw the book of the Gospels in the trash, shut up, and presume like a good Catholic under the Nazi regime of Adolf Hitler than your local Fuhrer is probably acting lawfully. Don’t even dare think that other considerations make that presumption invalid!  — But that is not Catholicism. That is clericalism.

Catholicism is this: the Faith trumps obedience to a visible superior, so when a Bishop dumps the Gospel in the trashcan and acts contrary to the Gospel, the presumption that he is acting legally can be dumped likewise in the trashcan!

Next Canon Peters writes:

Consider, e.g., that for most of Church history the institution of “territorial interdict”, whereby Church authority could shut down access to sacraments for the innocent as well as the guilty in whole countries, was practiced. See most recently 1917 CIC 2268-2277. There were, of course, efforts over the centuries to mitigate the impact of territorial interdicts on the innocent but, in its heyday, though criticized on prudential grounds, interdicts were not attacked as illegal in themselves nor as somehow outside of the Church’s authority to implement. Today, what amounts to territorial interdicts are being imposed (rightly or wrongly, in terms of medical advice) as a way to protect the innocent. Even if such policies are wrong-headed (as some seem to me) that does not necessarily mean they are canonically illegal.

What Canon Peters fails to mention, is that like every canonical penalty, interdicts have to be motivated by some injustice.  That a prince rebels against the Church did merit an interdict against his principality! But that the faithful in what they perceive to be a life-and-death situation want to receive the Sacraments is not an injustice! Nay, it is their divine right! When any penalty is not motivated by injustice, then it is invalidly imposed per se and ipso iure. So there is no question at all that it is legal.

Canon Peter also fails to explain to you, quite conveniently, that an interdict loosed you form all bonds of obedience to your Prince so that you could and should disobey him! But what the Bishops are doing is punishing an entire territory for the fault of no one, and demanding you continue to obey your unjust leaders! This is the complete opposite moral and legal case!

Thus it is a complete and diabolical shell game, Canon Peter’s is playing here. And that is also clericalism of the most depraved kind: to justify the denial of sacraments to 100s of millions of Catholics!

Then Canon Peter’s goes off the deep end, saying:

2. The use of communication devices (e.g., cell-phones, video devices) in sacramental Confession has been an interest of mine for some time and I published a peer-reviewed series of three articles exploring the validity and liceity of such practices.* While I far prefer such matters to be debated in the calm of academe some points apparently need to be made now. …

I won’t quote the theological dribble which follows under n. 2. But suffice it to say that Canon Peters does not know the first thing about Sacramental theology, which requires that for a Sacrament to be valid that it be a sign which is communicated. And here ”’communicated” is the Latin word for shared among persons in the presence of one another. The notion of communication via wires and radio waves etc., that is remotely, is an analogy, it is not the reality of communion. The voice you hear on the TV or cellphone is NOT the voice of a human being, it is the semblance of the voice created by merely inanimate instruments which cannot in the sacramental sense produce an act of personal communion. Remote communication is only the sharing of information, it cannot be or produce the real communion of persons. We are men, after all, not Angels, communion for human beings requires physical proximity of human bodies.

For that reason, no Sacrament can be valid which is done through phones or radios or tv. It is ontologically impossible, just as it is ontologically impossible that two persons by means of such things be physically proximate to commune in the sharing of anything.

In conclusion…

But since the truth is that Pope Benedict XVI has not ordered any Bishop to suspend the Sacraments or close the Churches, and since Coronavirus is not even as deadly as the winter flu to healthy persons, there is absolutely no reason for Canon Peters to try to start figuring out how to solve the problems which result from accept the Big Lies opposed to those 2 truths.

Here we have the classic example of the Pharisee. Straining gnats but swallowing camels. That is, straining canonical problems but ignoring the Big Truths that Benedict is still the pope and that all medical statistics show the Wuhan virus is not a plague.

The liberty of mankind is founded upon this fact…

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Absolute tyranny has its limits.

You cannot control everyone in all things at all times and in all places, because then you would need more police than there are citizens.

And in this, the liberty of mankind has its practical basis: there are always more of us than of the tyrants and their allies in tyranny.

Forcing everyone to stay at home, however, is one of the more brilliant acts of tyranny. Because shut in your house, you are denied in an absolute manner all rights to free assembly. And in a certain sense, all rights to free speech.

Yes, being shut in your house denies you free speech, because of what value is it, if no one hears you? And what kind of freedom do you really have, if everything you say has to be done through a medium which can be policed by super-fast AI programmed computers? a few of which can watch all humanity simultaneously.

This is why the Corona Hype is the perfect instrument of a brave new world of tyrants. And the psychopathic narcissistic political leaders of our age, in Church and State, are glorying in it. That is why the love extending the deadlines.

And personally I think we should all have a healthy doubt that the deadlines will ever end.

We might very well see a World War III begin, not with arms and bullets, but with bio-weapons released by this or that country which either wants more panic, so that their leaders can exact more servitude from the masses, or because they want to take revenge on the countries they perceived caused the Wuhan virus.

But our strength lies in this: they cannot monitor what you say with your voice, apart from your phone and the internet. They cannot watch everyone in every neighborhood. They cannot know how you are organizing your neighborhood. And if neighborhood after neighborhood resists the Hype and resists control, they will lose control very quickly.

From a simple point of view of truth and honesty, the world leaders who are promoting and implementing Corona Hype and Corona Panic and Corona Control need to be removed from power. They are now the real enemies of humanity. And the threat they pose is both imminent and existential.

Warrior nun: now the tables are turned on those who turned on us

FromRome.Info publishes here its English translation of a letter by an anonymous Catholic nun, here in Italy, interpreting the signs of the times. It was sent to Aldo Maria Valli, and you can read it in Italian at his site.

Dear Doctor,

I have read with lively interest your interview of Father Alfredo Morselli. Truly, it is a great insight, on his part, to have known how to find that, in the language of Dante, one might see a counterpoint in every happening.

Father Morelli, in his reply to one of your questions, says: “See: Communion was given to all, even if in the state of sin, and to the Lutherans in Germany, and now no one can make Holy Communion. Worship was given to idols in the Vatican and in Saint Peter’s, and now Saint Peter’s will not have the rites for Holy Week with the faithful. The Church in China was betrayed and sold to the Chinese regime, and from China has come the virus. With the Synod on Amazonia, nature was glorified and considered even a source of theological doctrine, and now she is showing — on account of the original sin — that she is not a tiger who is easily ridden.  A plot was begun to give wives to priests, and now priests are without their spouse, their parish. Is it not as if there is coming to pass what is said in the book of Wisdom, “…  That they might know that by what things a man sinneth, by the same also he is tormented.” (Wisdom 11:17)

For my part, to the list made by Father Morselli, even though with great reluctance (and with that prayer with which those called by God see and comprehend), I would add two other aspects.

They obligated all the nuns to leave their beloved cloisters with the most extreme threats, and now they are subject to cloister with the most extreme threats against anyone who leaves it.

In recent days, they made decisions by administrative process concerning matters which required the power of a legislator, and now the Italian government, falling into the same abuse, is deciding with administrative acts who, how, where and in what manner one may worship God.

God help us!

How much more until you admit that we are in the Great Apostasy?

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

How many more heresies, blasphemies, sacrileges, idolatries and profanations have to be uttered or committed at the Vatican?

How many more churches have to be shuttered?

How many more Bishops have to order their priests to stop being priests?

How many more Catholics have to be denied the sacraments by State and Church?

How many more absurd excuses do you need to hear from your Bishop or Pastor about how this is all for your good?

How many more Catholics need to tell you a winter flue is worse than going to Hell because you cannot get to Confession?

How many more priests have to totally and utterly spurn you spiritual welfare?

How much more of this, until you admit we are in the Great Apostasy?

The Great Apostasy according to the fathers of the Church is the great falling away which Saint John the Apostle prophesied in the twelfth chapter of the Book of Revelations, when he saw the dragon with its tail sweep a third of the stars from heaven and cast them down to the earth. The Fathers of the Church say that those stars represent the clergy. And their being swept out of the heavens is the biblical way of saying they will abandon their sacred ministry.

Oh, and for all those Catholics out there, who think Pope Benedict XVI is no longer the pope, because they bought into the Big Lie that a renunciation of ministry is the same thing as a renunciation of office, please tell me now, if you pope and your bishops and your priests have or have not renounced their offices, in renouncing their ministry to you?

I would love to hear the discombobulated reasons to explain that away….

Oh, and since it its the tail OF the dragon who does this, tell me who is the tail and who is the dragon?

Angelo de Donatis struck with Coronavirus

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The acting vicar of Rome, appointed by Jorge Mario Bergoglio, has come down with Coronavirus. So reports Vatican News. The test results of the swab he took yesterday, came in 4 hours ago positive. He was running a fever and thought to have the test done. Now he has been transferred to the prestigious Gemelli Hospital, in NW Rome, which has been nominated the Coronavirus hospital for the city.

His closest collaborators have all, now, been put in quarantine.  The follows the reports from the Vatican of the spreading Coronavirus epidemic there, also.

Father Angelo de Donatis is a priest of the Diocese of Rome, elevated to cardinal vicar and consecrated a bishop. He was the first to shut down the Churches in the Eternal City, before the Conference of Italian Bishops followed suit a few days later. He has been the object of much criticism, and outcries over his dastardly deed caused him to  reopen the Churches just days later, while maintaining the suspension order against all public services.

Needless to day, since he holds no office in the Church with such authority, his commands are both illegitimate and illegal. But the clergy of Rome, confused or careless about who is the real pope are nearly all following what De Donatis commands.

De Donatis has angered many of the clergy also, by appointing a raving Marxist as Rector of the Diocesan Seminary. Seminarians are now subject to the most banal formation and required to listen to the most bizarre harangues on environmentalism.

Under De Donatis, the Diocese adopted a pastoral plan for 2020 called, Opening your Heart to the needs of the City. — His closing of the Churches seems not to have been included in that plan!

Ironically, at the Shrine of Our Lady of Divine Love, where he celebrated with Bergoglio asking God’s intercession for the Diocese against the Coronavirus, he said that the true therapy for the present times is trusting oneself to the Hands of God.

But, since God is just and De Donatis forgetful, it remains for the faithful to recall the words of scripture reproving the wicked who presume of themselves:  It is a terrible thing to fall into the Hands of the living God (Hebrews 10:31).
