Pope exacta tribute from the Mohammedan ruler of Tunis

Pope Blessed Victor III

Victor III

Born in 1026 or 1027 of a non-regnant branch of the Lombard dukes of Benevento; died in Rome, 16 Sept., 1087. Being an only son his desire to embrace the monastic state was strenuously opposed by both his parents. After his father’s death in battle with the Normans, 1047, he fled from the marriage which had been arranged for him and though brought back by force, eventually after a second flight to Cava obtained permission to enter the monastery of S. Sophia at Benevento where he received the name of Desiderius.

The life at S. Sophia was not strict enough for the young monk who betook himself first to the island monastery of Tremite in the Adriatic and in 1053 to some hermits at Majella in the Abruzzi.

About this time he was brought to the notice of St. Leo IX and it is probable that the pope employed him at Benevento to negotiate peace with the Normans after the fatal battle of Civitate. Somewhat later Desiderius attached himself to the Court of Victor II at Florence and there met two monks of Monte Cassino, with whom he returned to their monastery in 1055. He joined the community, and was shortly afterwards appointed superior of the dependent house at Capua. In 1057 Stephen IX (X) who had retained the abbacy of Monte Cassino came thither and at Christmas, believing himself to be dying, ordered the monks to elect a new abbot. Their choice fell on Desiderius.

The pope recovered, and, desiring to retain the abbacy during his lifetime, appointed the abbot-designate his legate for Constantinople. It was at Bari, when about to sail for the East, that the news of the pope’s death reached Desiderius. Having obtained a safe-conduct from Robert Guiscard, the Norman Count (later Duke) of Apulia, he returned to his monastery and was duly installed by Cardinal Humbert on Easter Day, 1058. A year later he was ordained cardinal-priest of the title of S. Cecilia and received the abbatial blessing.

Monte Cassino

Desiderius was the greatest of all the abbots of Monte Cassino with the exception of the founder, and as such won for himself “imperishable fame” (Gregorovius). He rebuilt the church and conventual buildings, established schools of art and re-established monastic discipline so that there were 200 monks in the monastery in his day. On 1 Oct., 1071, the new and magnificent Basilica of Monte Cassino was consecrated by Alexander II. Desiderius’s great reputation brought to the abbey many gifts and exemptions.

The money was spent on church ornaments of which the most notable were a great golden altar front from Constantinople, adorned with gems and enamels and “nearly all the church ornaments of Victor II which had been pawned here and there throughout the city” [Chron. Cass., III, 18 (20)]. The bronze and silver doors of the Cassinese Basilica which Desiderius erected remain, and in the Church of S. Angelo in Formis near Capua some of the frescoes executed by his orders may still be seen. Peter the Deacon gives (op. cit., III, 63) a list of some seventy books which Desiderius caused to be copied at Monte Cassino; they include works of Sts. Augustine, Ambrose, Bede, Basil, Jerome, Gregory of Nazianzus, and Cassian, the registers of Popes Feliz and Leo, the histories of Josephus, Paul Warnfrid, Jordanus, and Gregory of Tours, the “Institutes” and “Novels” of Justinian, the works of Terence, Virgil, and Seneca, Cicero’s “De natura deorum”, and Ovid’s “Fasti”.

Desiderius had been appointed papal vicar for Campania, Apulia, Calabria, and the Principality of Beneventum with special powers for the reform of monasteries; so great was his reputation with the Holy See that he “was allowed by the Roman Pontiff to appoint Bishops and Abbots from among his brethren in whatever churches or monasteries he desired of those which had been widowed of their patron” (Chron. Cas., III, 34).

Within two years of the consecration of the Cassinese Basilica, Pope Alexander died and was succeeded by Hildebrand. Undoubtedly the chief importance of Desiderius in papal history lies in his influence with the Normans, an influence which he was able repeatedly to exert in favor of the Holy See. Already in 1059 he had persuaded Robert Guiscard and Richard of Capua to become vassals of St. Peter for their newly conquered territories: now Gregory VII immediately after his election sent for him to give an account of the state of Norman Italy and entrusted him with the negotiation of an interview with Robert Guiscard.

This took place on 2 Aug., 1073, at Benevento. In 1074 and 1075 he acted as intermediary, probably as Gregory’s agent, between the Norman princes themselves, and even when the latter were at open war with the pope, they still maintained the best relations with Monte Cassino (end of 1076). At the end of 1080 it was Desiderius who obtained Norman troops for Gregory. In 1082 he visited the emperor at Albano, while the troops of the Imperialist antipope were harassing the pope from Tivoli. In 1083 the peace-loving abbot joined Hugh of Cluny in an attempt to reconcile pope and emperor, and his proceedings seem to have aroused some suspicion in Gregory’s entourage. In 1084 when Rome was in Henry’s hands and the pope besieged in Sant’ Angelo, Desiderius announced the approach of Guiscard’s army to both emperor and pope.

Though certainly a strong partisan of the Hildebrandine reform the gentler Desiderius belonged to the moderate party and could not always see eye to eye with Gregory in his most intransigent proceedings. Yet when the latter lay dying at Salerno (25 May, 1085) the Abbot of Monte Cassino was one of those whom he named as fittest to succeed him. Desiderius was by no means willing to assume the mantle of Gregory VII, experience had taught him that his power and utility lay in being a middleman, yet at a time when the Church was surrounded by powerful enemies his influence with the Normans made him the most obvious candidate. The Romans had expelled the antipope from the city, and hither Desiderius hastened to consult with the cardinals on the approaching election; finding, however, that they were bent on forcing the papal dignity upon him, he fled to Monte Cassino, where he busied himself in exhorting the Normans and Lombards to rally to the support of the Holy See. Subscription

When autumn came Desiderius accompanied the Norman army in its march towards Rome, but becoming aware of the plot which was on foot between the cardinals and the Norman princes to force the tiara upon him, he would not enter Rome unless they swore to abandon their design; this they refused to do, and the election was postponed.

At about Easter (Chron. Cass., III, 66) the bishops and cardinals assembled at Rome summoned Desiderius and the cardinals who were with him at Monte Cassino to come to Rome to treat concerning the election. On 23 May a great meeting was held in the deaconry of St. Lucy, and Desiderius was again importuned to accept the papacy but persisted in his refusal, threatening to return to his monastery in case of violence. Next day, the feast of Pentecost, very early in the morning the same scene was repeated.

The consul Cencius now suggested the election of Odo, Cardinal-Bishop of Ostia (afterwards Urban II), but this was rejected by some of the cardinals on the grounds that the translation of a bishop was contrary to the canons. The assembly now lost all patience; Desiderius was seized and dragged to the Church of St. Lucy where he was forcibly vested in the red cope and given the name of Victor (24 May, 1086). The church had been without a head for twelve months all but a day. Four days later pope and cardinals had to flee from Rome before the imperial prefect of the city, and at Terracina, in spite of all protests, Victor laid aside the papal insignia and once more retired to Monte Cassino where he remained nearly a whole year. In the middle of Lent, 1087, a council of cardinals and bishops was held at Capua at which the pope-elect assisted as “Papal vicar of those parts” (letter of Hugh of Lyons) together with the Norman princes, Cencius the Consul, and the Roman nobles; here Victor finally yielded and “by the assumption of the cross and purple confirmed the past election” (Chron. Cass., III, 68). How much his obstinacy had irritated some of the prelates is evidenced in the letter of Hugh of Lyons preserved by Hugh of Flaviony (Mon. Germ. Hist.: Script. VIII, 466-8).

After celebrating Easter in his monastery Victor proceeded to Rome, and when the Normans had driven the soldiers of the Antipope Clement III (Guibert of Ravenna) out of St. Peter’s, was there consecrated and enthroned (9 May, 1087). He only remained eight days in Rome and then returned to Monte Cassino. Before May was out he was once more in Rome in answer to a summons for the Countess Matilda, whose troops held the Leonine City and Trastevere, but when at the end of June the antipope once more gained possession of St. Peter’s, Victor again retired to his abbey. In August a council was held at Benevento, at which he renewed the excommunication of the antipope and the condemnation of lay-investiture, and anathematised Hugh of Lyons and Richard, Abbot of Marseilles.

When the council had lasted three days Victor became seriously ill and retired to Monte Cassino to die. He had himself carried into the chapter-house, issued various decrees for the benefit of the abbey, appointed with the consent of the monks the prior, Cardinal Oderisius, to succeed him in the Abbacy, just as he himself had been appointed by Stephen IX (X), and proposed Odo of Ostia to the assembled cardinals and bishops as the next pope. He died 16 Sept., 1087, and was buried in the tomb he had prepared for himself in the chapter-house. In the sixteenth century his body was removed to the church, and again translated in 1890. The cultus of Blessed Victor seems to have begun not later than the pontificate of Anastasius IV, about 60 years after his death (Acta SS. Loc. cit.). In 1727 the Abbot of Monte Cassino obtained from Benedict III permission to keep his feast (Tosti, I, 393).

Pope Victor III is a far less impressive figure in history than Desiderius the great Abbot of Monte Cassino, but there is abundant evidence that it was largely his failing health that made him so reluctant to accept the great position which was thrust upon him, indeed Ordericus tells us that he was taken ill when saying the first Mass after his consecration, so that during his papacy “he hardly got through a single Mass”, vix una tantum missa perfunctus (P.L., CLXXXVIII, p. 578)

Pope Victor IIIOn 5 Aug., 1087, when Victor was holding the Council at Benevento, an army consisting of Roman, Genoese, Pisan, and Amalfitan troops sent by him to Africa under the Banner of St. Peter captured the town of El Mahadia, and forced the Mohammedan ruler of Tunis to promise tribute to the Holy See and to free all Christian slaves. This event may perhaps be considered as the beginning of the Crusades.

The only literary work of Victor which we possess is his “Dialogues” on the miracles wrought by St. Benedict and other saints at Monte Cassino. There is also a letter to the bishops of Sardinia to which country he had sent monks while still Abbot of Monte Cassino. In his “De Viris illustribus Casinensibus”, Peter the Deacon ascribes to him the composition of a “Cantus ad B. Maurum” and letters to Philip of France and Hugh of Cluny which no longer exist.

SAVE the St. Patrick’s Day Parade – Sign the Petition

As things stand now, the 2015 St. Patrick’s Day Parade in New York City will have homosexual activists marching…

…under their own banner promoting the acceptance of homosexual sin!!!

And this is because the New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee, breaking with 252 years of precedent, has authorized an activist homosexual group to march in the 2015 parade.

This homosexual group call themselves, OUT@NBCUniversal.

But there’s even more!

A group called Irish Queers has applied for a place in the parade!

That’s why I am asking you to:

Sign this petition:

Give Us Back Our St. Patrick’s Day Parade!

Perhaps you know that the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in New York City was founded in 1762, to honor St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland.

And it’s the oldest Catholic parade in America and the largest in the world. 
So I ask you:  Are we going to just stand aside and let this group blatantly promote homosexual sin?

As you know from the Bible, this very sin led God to destroy the cities of Sodom of Gomorrah with fire and brimstone.  This matters.

That’s why I’m asking you to:

Sign this petition:

Give Us Back Our St. Patrick’s Day Parade!

We must try to save the holy memory of Saint Patrick from being dishonored!

And we must try to save the St. Patrick’s Day Parade from becoming a national platform for the promotion of unnatural vice.

And that is why I ask you to:

Sign this petition:

Give Us Back Our St. Patrick’s Day Parade!

Catholics are deeply disturbed about the Parade Committee’s caving to pressure from homosexual activists to allow OUT to march in the 2015 parade.

Believe me, the liberal news media will make sure that the whole world knows about the decision.

Plus -- many Catholics were again disturbed to learn that having allowed the homosexual group in, the Parade Committee asked Cardinal Dolan to be the Grand Marshall of next year’s parade.  And that he accepted.

His acceptance breaks precedent and principle.  A previous Archbishop of New York, Cardinal John O’Connor, standing on principle, refused to allow homosexual groups to march in the parade.

Under intense pressure from homosexual activists and then NYC Mayor David Dinkins, Cardinal O’Connor said political correctness was not worth “one comma in the Apostles’ Creed.”

He added, "Irish Catholics have been persecuted for the sole reason that they have refused to compromise Church teaching. What others may call bigotry, Irish Catholics call principle."

He also said that he “could never even be perceived as compromising Catholic teaching by entertaining their admission as an identifiable group in the city's 232nd parade up Manhattan's showcase Avenue in honor of Saint Patrick.”

But now, everything has changed.

And that is why a copy of this petition will be sent to His Eminence Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York.

I think you will agree that, if this ruling stands, it will make it impossible for you and I to participate in the New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade. 

Simply put, it is wrong for Catholics to march side by side with homosexual activists who openly promote their sinful lifestyle and agenda as normal.

St. Patrick, who did not compromise with the pagan practices of the times, would certainly not approve of doing so. He never backed down or minced words when it came to defending Church teaching!

We also must not back down. We cannot be accomplices to the mainstreaming of homosexual sin.

To this, our conscience says "NO".

Sign The Petition

It’s just not right.  We don’t want to draw down God’s chastisement upon our nation.

But we do want our parade back.  The way it used to be in the days of Cardinal O’Connor.

Please think about it.  Seriously.

The St. Patrick’s Day Parade is supposed to honor Saint Patrick, the patron of Ireland, and the Archdiocese of New York…..

We cannot honor Saint Patrick by promoting the mainstreaming of the sin of homosexuality. 

So let’s ask Saint Patrick, from his place in Heaven, to help us win back HIS Saint Patrick’s Day Parade…after it was hijacked by homosexual activists.

Sign this petition.  Urge the New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee to:

Give Us Back Our St. Patrick’s Day Parade!

Here, please ask St. Patrick…

        Saint Patrick, from your place in Heaven, help us win back YOUR Saint Patrick’s Day Parade…it was hijacked by homosexual activists. Amen.

Give Us Back Our St. Patrick’s Day Parade!

Read our statement on homosexual “marriage.”

September 17 – Stigmata of St. Francis of Assisi

The Stigmatization of Saint Francis, by Rubens

The Stigmatization of Saint Francis, by Rubens

Early in August, 1224, Francis retired with three companions to “that rugged rock ‘twixt Tiber and Arno”, as Dante called La Verna, there to keep a forty days fast in preparation for Michaelmas. During this retreat the sufferings of Christ became more than ever the burden of his meditations; into few souls, perhaps, had the full meaning of the Passion so deeply entered.

It was on or about the feast of the Exaltation of the Cross (14 September) while praying on the mountainside, that he beheld the marvelous vision of the seraph, as a sequel of which there appeared on his body the visible marks of the five wounds of the Crucified which, says an early writer, had long since been impressed upon his heart. Brother Leo, who was with St. Francis when he received the stigmata, has left us in his note to the saint’s autograph blessing, preserved at Assisi, a clear and simple account of the miracle, which for the rest is better attested than many another historical fact.

Subscription16

The saint’s right side is described as bearing on open wound which looked as if made by a lance, while through his hands and feet were black nails of flesh, the points of which were bent backward. After the reception of the stigmata, Francis suffered increasing pains throughout his frail body, already broken by continual mortification.

For, condescending as the saint always was to the weaknesses of others, he was ever so unsparing towards himself that at the last he felt constrained to ask pardon of “Brother Ass”, as he called his body, for having treated it so harshly. Worn out, moreover, as Francis now was by eighteen years of unremitting toil, his strength gave way completely, and at times his eyesight so far failed him that he was almost wholly blind.

During an access of anguish, Francis paid a last visit to St. Clare at St. Damian’s, and it was in a little hut of reeds, made for him in the garden there, that the saint composed that “Canticle of the Sun”, in which his poetic genius expands itself so gloriously. This was in September, 1225.

Judges order Arizona and Indiana to recognize gay ‘marriages’ on death certificates

Kirsten Andersen Kirsten Andersen, www.LifeSiteNews.com 

Two federal judges have ordered Arizona and Indiana to recognize same-sex “marriages” on death certificates, although both states have laws defining marriage as a union between one man and one woman.

In Arizona, Judge John Sedwick ordered the state to issue a death certificate for George Martinez listing his marital status as “married” and his spouse as Fred McQuire.  The two were “married” in California in July, and Martinez died in September.  They had previously sued Arizona to recognize their out-of-state “marriage” as legal – a case that is still ongoing.

In his decision, Sedwick said that the majority of federal appeals courts have found that “marriage laws which discriminate between heterosexual couples and homosexual couples infringe a fundamental right.”  He said he thought it was likely that Arizona’s marriage protection law will soon be overturned.

Sedwick’s decision applies exclusively to Martinez and McQuire.   The judge explained that given the likelihood of same-sex “marriage” becoming legal in Arizona, he didn’t want McQuire’s “marriage” to be excluded from recognition just because his “husband” died before the law could be overturned.  He said he hoped the decision would prevent “the loss of dignity and status coming in the midst of an elderly man’s personal grief.”

Meanwhile, in Indiana, Judge Joseph Van Bokkelen presided over an agreement between the state and a lesbian couple, Veronica Romero and Mayra Yvette Rivera, who “married” in Illinois in March. The state agreed to recognize the couple’s “marriage” because Rivera is dying of ovarian cancer, and said they will issue a death certificate bearing Romero’s name as “spouse” when Rivera passes away.

Indiana opted to concede the case mostly due to its striking similarities to an earlier case the state lost, in which Judge Richard L. Young ordered Indiana to recognize the “marriage” of Niki Quasney and Amy Sandler, who “wed” in Massachusetts in 2013.  Quasney also has terminal ovarian cancer, and the couple had argued that Sandler and her two children would suffer irreparable financial harm if the state does not recognize their “marriage” so that Sandler can collect death benefits when Quasney passes away.

Both Indiana decisions apply only to the couples named specifically by the court; however, last week, a federal appeals court upheld an earlier ruling by Judge Young declaring the state’s marriage protection law unconstitutional.

The state of Indiana has appealed that ruling to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Now they want legalized suicide!

Stop the Suicide Conference -- Sign Protest

The World Federation of Right to Die Societies is holding a conference in Chicago in support of Euthanasia.
They want legalized suicide!!!

The World Federation of Right to Die Societies consists of 49 right to die organizations from 26 countries working to make euthanasia legal across the board all over the world.
Many of the speakers at the conference have euthanized their own mothers.

Their web site states: "We hold that mentally competent adults who suffer from a fatal or irreversible physical illness... have a basic human right to choose to end their lives when they judge the quality of their life to be unacceptable."

They want all Americans adults to have the "choice" to kill themselves?

So, first its kill your babies then it's kill the elderly and now its kill yourself all in the name of human "dignity." When will this insanity stop!

This is an atrocity!

Send Your E-Protest

God is seriously offended by this sin because He gave us our lives to live to their fullest, knowing loving and serving Him. We should desire to live on earth doing good because that is what pleases God even if it involves suffering.

No one has the right to choose to take their own life.

That is why I ask you to please join me in a peaceful and legal protest against this conference.

I have terrible news to report to you

   Here’s the terrible news:

   On September 21, at 7 PM, in Oklahoma City, at the Oklahoma City Civic Center, a Satanic ‘Black Mass’ will be performed.

   And since you are a special devotee of Our Lady I’m sure you will understand why we must oppose this Satanic event!

My friend, public sin demands public reparation.

   For that reason, we are going to bring people from all over America to rally at the Oklahoma City Civic Center.

   This is going to be a powerful and public act of reparation to God Almighty before and during the ritual of the Satanic Black Mass.

Perhaps you can join us!

   But even if you can’t join us… then perhaps you can send a special gift, because we are facing serious financial costs in order to send dozens of full-time volunteers and others to Oklahoma City. Can I count on your financial help?

Click HERE to support the Rally

   For example, just to fly one volunteer from our headquarters in Pennsylvania to Oklahoma City costs $487. Not to mention the cost of food and lodging after they arrive in Oklahoma.

   Maybe you can sponsor half the cost of one ticket for a volunteer to fly to Oklahoma, which would be a gift of $243.

   If God has blessed you recently, maybe you can send $487, which would cover the full amount for one ticket. How wonderful that would be!

   But whatever is the size of your gift, I know that the Blessed Mother will smile upon you and bless you in many ways.

Click HERE to support the Rally

   As you know, America Needs Fatima is moving people from all across America to join our prayer rally that will be done right in front of the Civic Center, where the black mass will take place.

   For example, we’re working on chartering three buses to take our rosary rally volunteers from Kansas to Oklahoma City and back.

   These time-tested children of Mary are key to the rally’s success…they know how to hold a beautiful rally in a holy, peaceful and legal manner.

   But just to charter one bus costs $2,500.

   Maybe you can help sponsor the full cost of one 56 passenger bus with a gift of $2,500.

   Or maybe you can send a donation to cover the trip of three volunteers on the bus to Oklahoma City with a gift of $134 ($45 each).

   You see, if everyone who gets this email will sponsor the trip of just one volunteer, or part of one round trip ticket to Oklahoma City, we will be in great shape to finance this growing pilgrimage of prayer and penance.

   I sure hope you can!

   Listen: a black mass is pure hatred against Almighty God and His Holy Catholic Church.

   It is meant to desecrate, mock, and insult the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

   Can we just turn our backs when the person of Our Lord Jesus Christ is going to be attacked in a most vile and unspeakable manner?

   Absolutely not!

   That’s why I am asking you if you can support our pilgrimage of prayer and penance.

Click HERE to support the Rally

   I warn you: to invite Satan into one of our American cities is a terrible sin that brings devils to the earth and provokes God to withdraw His graces and blessings.

   And when public buildings open their doors to a Satanic Black Mass that offends God so deeply, we must ask:

   “Are we still one nation under God?”

   So here’s what is going to happen on that day of terrible blasphemy, September 21.

First of all:

   Archbishop Coakley has invited Catholics, Christians, and all people of good will to join him in prayer for a Eucharistic Holy Hour at 3 pm, at the St. Francis of Assisi Church, 1901 NW 18th, Oklahoma City, followed by an outdoor Procession and Benediction.

   Then, at 5PM our America Needs Fatima Act of Reparation will take place at the Civic Center.

   Our standards will be flying in the wind!
   Our band will be playing.
   And we will be praying, singing and offering reparation.

   Remember, it is our constitutional right. And I promise you, our rally will be peaceful and legal.

   I hope and pray that you will support us as generously as you possibly can.

We must go to Oklahoma City and make reparation for this enormous sin. We can do nothing less.

   And since you are a special devotee of Our Lady I’m sure you will help us oppose this Satanic event!

Click HERE to support the Rally

    When public buildings open their doors and allow a Satanic Black Mass that offends God so deeply…

We cannot…

We must not…

We will not… remain silent.
