Fr. John Zuhlsdorf Caused NAPA VALLEY INFERNO As Punishment For Wearing Guns Under His Vestments While Saying Mass On Saturday!
Fr Z and his bizarre timing.
Fr Z was in Napa Valley on Saturday just as the fires were starting:
Fr. Z attended The 12th Annual Napa Valley Catholic Men’s Conference. 100th Anniversary of the Final Fatima Apparition Saturday, October 7th, 2017 || 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM Source
Fr. Z tells of his experience in Napa Valley:
Last Saturday I was in the Diocese of Santa Rosa, in Napa Valley, CA, to speak at a conference. At one point I had noticed smoke plumes on the far sides of a large Eastern ridge. On Saturday evening the other priest and I headed back to San Francisco in view of flights home at zero-dark-hundred. Fires swept through the area. In retrospect, people at the conference seemed unaware of the impending threat…. or, I surmise, they would not have been there. Source
Did the Latin Mass saying Priest Fr. Z caused the Napa Valley inferno?
A ridiculous question?
No. It is not a ridiculous question.
Can man not bring down the wrath of God for sins?
What sins does Fr Z commit?
Carrying a weapon on his person while saying Mass.
The sin is called irreverence and impiety while celebrating the Holy Mysteries.
It's not just the New Mass saying Priests who are guilty of irreverence and impiety while celebrating the Holy Mysteries, but those priests who say the Latin Mass can commit sins of irreverence and impiety while celebrating the Holy Mysteries.
Our Lady warned of this sin:
“The priests, ministers of my Son, the priests, by their wicked lives, by their irreverence and their impiety in the celebration of the holy mysteries, by their love of money, their love of honors and pleasures, and the priests have become cesspools of impurity. Yes, the priests are asking vengeance, and vengeance is hanging over their heads. Woe to the priests and to those dedicated to God who by their unfaithfulness and their wicked lives are crucifying my Son again! The sins of those dedicated to God cry out towards Heaven and call for vengeance, and now vengeance is at their door, for there is no one left to beg mercy and forgiveness for the people. There are no more generous souls; there is no one left worthy of offering a stainless sacrifice to the Eternal for the sake of the world.Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
What happens to priests when they commit sins of irreverence and impiety in the celebration of the holy mysteries?
“God will strike in an unprecedented way. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
“Woe to the inhabitants of the earth! God will exhaust His wrath upon them and no one will be able to escape so many afflictions together. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
And so on.
Well let Fr. Z answer for me:
About carrying a handgun while saying Mass… I am neutral on that point. It is wrong for a priest or bishop to say Mass with his wallet in his back pocket? Money can be misused, after all. Can he have his smart phone in his pocket? A pocket knife on his key ring? You can do bad things with smart phones or knives or keys. Fr. Z
Not only does Fr Z give the impression that he carries a gun on him while saying Mass - Fr Z also gives the impression that he knows how to use the gun and he aims to kill any man who is a threat to him during Mass:
Perhaps the firearms training many of us have undertaken is helpful as an analogy. First, you seek to avoid conflicts or deescalate them. When you can’t avoid violence you try to discern the level actually needed. Of course, this sometimes must happens in seconds. In the case that you are forced to act in defense of your life or the lives of others, you use deadly force to stop the threat. That means you shoot effectively to stop the threat. You don’t try to shoot the gun out of the enemy’s hand (this isn’t TV). You don’t shoot to hit the leg (because, again, this isn’t TV). You shoot center mass, to do maximum damage so the threat will stop, because … that’s the point you are at. You don’t shoot “to kill”. Shoot (or whatever) so that the clear, present danger to life and limb is no longer a threat. If a punch in the face or a kick in the ‘nads is enough, and the threat stops, then stop there. Stop punching and kicking. That’s an analogy from a few horrifying seconds of immediately conflict or threat. In prolonged situations, we have time to analyze our motives and consciences. Fr. Z
Now Fr Z is a law abiding man - a man who will register his fire arms and will fill out the necessary paper work required to bring his gun on a plane.
Fr. Z is worldly wise or prudent and he knows that he has to store his weapon in his luggage as required by law.
However when Fr Z is on the ground and in his hotel; room - where does Fr Z keep his weapon?
No. Fr Z will keep his weapon on him - even during Mass. In his mind that is the safest place for his gun - on his person - even during Mass.
So it reasonable to assume that Fr Z was packing heat while saying Mass at the 12th Annual Napa Valley Catholic Men’s Conference.
Now you can say that Fr Z never said Mass at the Conference. Yeah OK. But Fr Z did say Mass that day and probably wore his gun - just as he has done many times - by his own admission on his blog time and again.
So yes believe it or not a Latin Mass saying Priest by the name of Fr. John Zuhlsdorf is committing irreverence and impiety in the celebration of the holy mysteries because he is carrying weapons underneath his vestments - contrary to the example Christ gave while Crucified on the Cross.
Here is St Thomas Aquinas condemning Priests who carrying guns or other weapons on their person while saying Mass:
Article 4. Whether it is lawful for clerics to kill evil-doers?
Objection 1. It would seem lawful for clerics to kill evil-doers. For clerics especially should fulfil the precept of the Apostle (1 Corinthians 4:16): "Be ye followers of me as I also am of Christ," whereby we are called upon to imitate God and His saints. Now the very God whom we worship puts evildoers to death, according to Psalm 135:10, "Who smote Egypt with their firstborn." Again Moses made the Levites slay twenty-three thousand men on account of the worship of the calf (Exodus 32), the priest Phinees slew the Israelite who went in to the woman of Madian (Numbers 25), Samuel killed Agag king of Amalec (1 Samuel 15), Elias slew the priests of Baal (1 Kings 18), Mathathias killed the man who went up to the altar to sacrifice (1 Maccabees 2); and, in the New Testament, Peter killed Ananias and Saphira (Acts 5). Therefore it seems that even clerics may kill evil-doers.
Objection 2. Further, spiritual power is greater than the secular and is more united to God. Now the secular power as "God's minister" lawfully puts evil-doers to death, according to Romans 13:4. Much more therefore may clerics, who are God's ministers and have spiritual power, put evil-doers to death.
Objection 3. Further, whosoever lawfully accepts an office, may lawfully exercise the functions of that office. Now it belongs to the princely office to slay evildoers, as stated above (Article 3). Therefore those clerics who are earthly princes may lawfully slay malefactors.
On the contrary, It is written (1 Timothy 3:2-3): "It behooveth . . . a bishop to be without crime [Vulgate: 'blameless.' 'Without crime' is the reading in Titus 1:7] . . . not given to wine, no striker."
I answer that, It is unlawful for clerics to kill, for two reasons. First, because they are chosen for the ministry of the altar, whereon is represented the Passion of Christ slain "Who, when He was struck did not strike [Vulgate: 'When He suffered, He threatened not']" (1 Peter 2:23). Therefore it becomes not clerics to strike or kill: for ministers should imitate their master, according to Sirach 10:2, "As the judge of the people is himself, so also are his ministers." The other reason is because clerics are entrusted with the ministry of the New Law, wherein no punishment of death or of bodily maiming is appointed: wherefore they should abstain from such things in order that they may be fitting ministers of the New Testament.
Reply to Objection 1. God works in all things without exception whatever is right, yet in each one according to its mode. Wherefore everyone should imitate God in that which is specially becoming to him. Hence, though God slays evildoers even corporally, it does not follow that all should imitate Him in this. As regards Peter, he did not put Ananias and Saphira to death by his own authority or with his own hand, but published their death sentence pronounced by God. The Priests or Levites of the Old Testament were the ministers of the Old Law, which appointed corporal penalties, so that it was fitting for them to slay with their own hands.
Reply to Objection 2. The ministry of clerics is concerned with better things than corporal slayings, namely with things pertaining to spiritual welfare, and so it is not fitting for them to meddle with minor matters.
Reply to Objection 3. Ecclesiastical prelates accept the office of earthly princes, not that they may inflict capital punishment themselves, but that this may be carried into effect by others in virtue of their authority.
