Archbishop Vigano addresses those whose hearts are in the right place, whose spirits are justly offended by the wickedness and evil of Clown World, but fail to grasp the fundamentally spiritual nature of the conflict they are observing:
In this series of events that we are witnessing and will continue to witness, your commitment could risk being thwarted or limited by the fact of not being able to see its essentially spiritual nature. I know that two centuries of Enlightenment thought, revolutions, atheistic materialism and anticlerical liberalism have accustomed us to thinking of Faith as a personal matter, or that there is not an objective Truth to which we all must conform. But this is the fruit of a propaedeutic indoctrination, one that happened long before what is happening today, and it would be foolish to believe that the anti-Christian ideology that drove the secret sects and Masonic groups of the eighteenth century had nothing to do with the anti-Christian ideology that today drives people like Klaus Schwab, George Soros, and Bill Gates. The driving principles are the same: rebellion against God, hatred for the Church and humanity, and destructive fury aimed against Creation and especially against man because he is created in the image and likeness of God.
If you start from this evidence, you will understand that it is not possible to pretend that what is happening before our eyes is solely the result of profit-seeking or the desire for power. Certainly, the economic part cannot be disregarded, considering how many people have collaborated with the World Economic Forum. And yet, beyond profit, there are unstated purposes that stem from a “theological” vision – one that is turned upside-down, it’s true, but still theological – a vision that sees two opposing sides: the side of Christ and the side of the Antichrist.
On the one hand, there is the City of God – the one Saint Augustine writes about – and on the other hand there is the city of the devil. We can say that in this era the city of the devil is clearly identifiable in neo-Malthusian globalism, the New World Order, the United Nations, the World Economic Forum, the European Union, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and in all those so called “philanthropical foundations” that follow an ideology of death, disease, destruction, and tyranny. And also in those forces that have infiltrated the institutions, which we call the deep state and the deep church.
The archbishop is absolutely correct. How many times have I warned you of the dangers of propaedeutic indoctrination! Well, none, actually, since that’s a new one on me.
Propaedeutics (from Ancient Greek προπαίδευσις, propaídeusis ‘preparatory education’) is a historical term for an introductory course into an art or science.
But if the words are new, the point is clear. Too many people who are on our side don’t even know what our side truly is because they have been spiritually lobotomized and forced to perceive the world through the false and illogical lens of the rational materialist. The Good, the Beautiful, and the True sings out to them, but they can only hear the faintest echoes of it, they do not hear the music itself.
And yet, they can smell the stink of sulfur that permeates Clown World, and their very being revolts against it. What the archbishop is telling these people is that they will be forced to make a choice, and it’s not our side that will force them to make it. Submit to God or submit to the world, those are the only two options available to every man.
