Sermon for the Fourth Sunday after Easter – May 10, 2020 by Monsignor Patrick Perez

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
Father began the sermon by reciting the Hail Mary.
 
“Vado ad eum, qui misit me: et nemo ex vobis interrogat me: Quo vadis?” No, I’m not going to preach the sermon in Latin. These are words from today’s gospel. “I am going to Him Who sent Me but nobody amongst you is asking Me: Where are you going?” And this statement contains within it a saying that has been used over the ages and which I wish to bring to you today which is “Quo vadis?” “Where are you going? Whither goest Thou?” Because this is the time for us to ask, Where are we going? As Catholics in this society at this strange time, Where are you going and what are you going to do? Now in a second I will read a letter that was given to us to read actually today. I didn’t write the letter. It was actually written by somebody important and it should have been written by the pope, or it should have been written and broadcast by the local bishops and local clergy; however, the pope and all the local bishops and local clergy have locked themselves into their bomb shelters with their supply of Pachamamas and locked their doors and are not responding. So it is up to a few of us to do this which I will get to in a second.
 
What I want to preface this with is part of the reason we have to ask ourselves, as Catholics in today’s society, right now in this point in history, is what are you going to do about this situation. Now, I’m not a doctor – I mean I might be a doctor of the Church someday, I don’t know, but that’s up to like Pius XXXII or something to determine. But I know doctors, I know several doctors, I know lots of nurses and you know what? These nurses and doctors work in hospitals and they know many, many doctors in different hospitals. I know doctors and nurses in fact personally in hospitals and clinics across the country. This is just the ones I know personally and they relate to me from doctors and nurses they know personally. This is fake; this is a hoax, this is a ploy to control society and mind control to make you afraid and so you say, well, isn’t Covid19 actually a real virus? Some doctors are even questioning that. And then they say, well, have a little sympathy. People are dying. If they’re dying in the state of mortal sin I’m saddened by that. But if they are dying in the state of sanctifying grace then I’m not. As I’ve said, Ah sure, we have to die from something- and what makes me feel that this is fake? Well, the overall death statistics have not changed since the beginning of the Covid thing, only the deaths they attribute to this virus have changed.
 
So for instance let’s say they have predicted that for the month of April a thousand people will die – just a number – Now they predicted this two years ago, three years ago, four years ago, it doesn’t matter. What happened last April? A thousand people died according to the models to their statistics. Only before they were dying from cancer and heart attacks, gout and exploding gall bladders or something, they were all of a sudden dying of Covid19 but the total number was the same. So all these people who would have died from cancer suddenly didn’t. But all these other people suddenly appeared with Covid – we have ample evidence. You can look this up yourself – that doctors are being pressured to put this virus down as a cause of death even when it isn’t. I think it was the president of Tanzania started hopping on to this and he had some of his doctors send samples to their laboratories for testing for Covid19. Little did the testers know that what they sent them was some goat tissue and some paw paw tissue? Paw paws are fruit, okay. Well, most of them came back yes, serious Covid19 infections. And that’s pretty much what’s going on here too. Stay away from paw paws and goats is all I have to say.
 
Anyway, this is being used by the powers of darkness. The prince of this world is already judged but it doesn’t mean he won’t make trouble for the rest of us, right? Well, we can’t really say what’s happening. We do know- stay away from watching TV! The TV channels and what you hear are controlled by the minions of the prince of darkness, they are controlled by people who want to control you and they have their agenda. And this has been true for decades. So don’t watch them, find an alternative media source on the internet that you trust and will be giving you the truth and then start listening to them.
 
In any case this situation has gotten for us this letter (Monsignor holding up letter) from an individual in the Church and has asked us to share it with our congregations today. Now the letter comes from Archbishop Viganò. Very interesting. Archbishop Viganò has been very prominent lately. He revealed a series of Vatican scandals, cover ups, dirty dealings on the part of the Vatican and is now in fact in hiding for fear of his life. But he has issued this letter and three cardinals have signed on with him with this letter. Now this is very, very brave. You will see the content of this letter and will see why it is very brave of them. But it talks about the world situation and the mythical virus and this kind of thing. There were four cardinals who signed and then it was published with the names of the four cardinals and Archbishop Viganò. And then one of the cardinals who is actually in charge of the Vatican Office for the Liturgy, Cardinal Sarah, probably got a little phone call from the guy in white saying, you know Cardinal Sarah you’d better not sign on to this letter because something might happen to you, this kind of thing. So he withdrew his name. In fact, he said he never signed it and Archbishop Viganò whom I believe more than I believe Cardinal Sarah at this point said yes, he did sign it and he pulled out later and said he didn’t. In any case there were three cardinals who did sign it, Cardinals Mueller, Zen and Pujats. Cardinal Zen was the former cardinal of Hong Kong. Anyway, good for them for signing on to this letter.
 
So I will just now without further ado read the letter to you. As I said, this should be coming from the pope himself. We look to the office of Peter for spiritual guidance and what are we getting? We look to the local bishops and priests for guidance and what are we getting? My dear friends, I want to remind everybody who is hearing this and seeing this and receiving the sacraments from Our Lady Help of Christians that you are getting zero from them. You are getting nothing from them. I who am a nothing priest, I have to do the job in a way of the bishop and the local clergy because they won’t do it? It reminds me of Archbishop Lefebvre. Once he came out to do Confirmations, he went through the airport in Los Angeles and I think it was Cardinal Manning at the time that met him at the airport and said “What are you doing here?!” to Archbishop LeFebvre. Archbishop LeFebvre said “your job!”. Okay? There it is…   Now, this is called,
 
An Appeal for the Church and the World To Catholics and all people of good will,
 
Veritas liberabit vos. (The truth will set you free.) Jn 8:32
In this time of great crisis, we Pastors of the Catholic Church, by virtue of our mandate, consider it our sacred duty to make an Appeal to our Brothers in the Episcopate, to the Clergy, to Religious, to the holy People of God and to all men and women of good will. This Appeal has also been undersigned by intellectuals, doctors, lawyers, journalists and professionals who agree with its content, and may be undersigned by those who wish to make it their own. (Monsignor Perez: So I undersign it as well.)
 
The facts have shown that, under the pretext of the Covid-19 epidemic, the inalienable rights of citizens have in many cases been violated and their fundamental freedoms, including the exercise of freedom of worship, expression and movement, have been disproportionately and unjustifiably restricted. Public health must not, and cannot, become an alibi for infringing on the rights of millions of people around the world, let alone for depriving the civil authority of its duty to act wisely for the common good. This is particularly true as growing doubts emerge from several quarters about the actual contagiousness, danger and resistance of the virus. Many authoritative voices in the world of science and medicine confirm that the media’s alarmism about Covid-19 appears to be absolutely unjustified.
 
We have reason to believe, on the basis of official data on the incidence of the epidemic as related to the number of deaths, that there are powers interested in creating panic among the world’s population with the sole aim of permanently imposing unacceptable forms of restriction on freedoms, of controlling people and of tracking their movements. The imposition of these illiberal measures is a disturbing prelude to the realization of a world government beyond all control.
 
We also believe that in some situations the containment measures that were adopted, including the closure of shops and businesses, have precipitated a crisis that has brought down entire sectors of the economy. This encourages interference by foreign powers and has serious social and political repercussions. Those with governmental responsibility must stop these forms of social engineering, by taking measures to protect their citizens whom they represent, and in whose interests they have a serious obligation to act. Likewise, let them help the family, the cell of society, by not unreasonably penalizing the weak and elderly, forcing them into a painful separation from their loved ones. The criminalization of personal and social relationships must likewise be judged as an unacceptable part of the plan of those who advocate isolating individuals in order to better manipulate and control them.
 
We ask the scientific community to be vigilant, so that cures for Covid-19 are offered in honesty for the common good. Every effort must be made to ensure that shady business interests do not influence the choices made by government leaders and international bodies. It is unreasonable to penalize those remedies that have proved to be effective, and are often inexpensive, just because one wishes to give priority to treatments or vaccines that are not as good, but which guarantee pharmaceutical companies far greater profits, and exacerbate public health expenditures. Let us also remember, as Pastors, that for Catholics it is morally unacceptable to develop or use vaccines derived from material from aborted fetuses. (Monsignor Perez: Which is all of them, by the way. The vaccine they are working on for this virus is derived from aborted fetuses so we cannot ever take it.)
 
We also ask government leaders to ensure that forms of control over people, whether through tracking systems or any other form of location-finding, are rigorously avoided. The fight against Covid-19, however serious, must not be the pretext for supporting the hidden intentions of supranational bodies that have very strong commercial and political interests in this plan. In particular, citizens must be given the opportunity to refuse these restrictions on personal freedom, without any penalty whatsoever being imposed on those who do not wish to use vaccines, contact tracking or any other similar tool. Let us also consider the blatant contradiction of those who pursue policies of drastic population control and at the same time present themselves as the savior of humanity, without any political or social legitimacy. Finally, the political responsibility of those who represent the people can in no way be left to “experts” who can indeed claim a kind of immunity from prosecution, which is disturbing to say the least.
 
We strongly urge those in the media to commit themselves to providing accurate information and not penalizing dissent by resorting to forms of censorship, as is happening widely on social media, in the press and on television. Providing accurate information requires that room be given to voices that are not aligned with a single way of thinking. This allows citizens to consciously assess the facts, without being heavily influenced by partisan interventions. A democratic and honest debate is the best antidote to the risk of imposing subtle forms of dictatorship, presumably worse than those our society has seen rise and fall in the recent past.
 
Finally, as Pastors responsible for the flock of Christ, let us remember that the Church firmly asserts her autonomy to govern, worship, and teach. This autonomy and freedom are an innate right that Our Lord Jesus Christ has given her for the pursuit of her proper ends. For this reason, as Pastors we firmly assert the right to decide autonomously on the celebration of Mass and the Sacraments, just as we claim absolute autonomy in matters falling within our immediate jurisdiction, such as liturgical norms and ways of administering Communion and the Sacraments. The State has no right to interfere, for any reason whatsoever, in the sovereignty of the Church. Ecclesiastical authorities have never refused to collaborate with the State, but such collaboration does not authorize civil authorities to impose any sort of ban or restriction on public worship or the exercise of priestly ministry. The rights of God and of the faithful are the supreme law of the Church, which she neither intends to, nor can, abdicate. We ask that restrictions on the celebration of public ceremonies be removed.
 
We should like to invite all people of good will not to shirk their duty to cooperate for the common good, each according to his or her own state and possibilities and in a spirit of fraternal charity. The Church desires such cooperation, but this cannot disregard either a respect for natural law or a guarantee of individual freedoms. The civil duties to which citizens are bound imply the State’s recognition of their rights.
 
We are all called to assess the current situation in a way consistent with the teaching of the Gospel. This means taking a stand: either with Christ or against Christ. (Monsignor Perez repeated this last sentence.) Let us not be intimidated or frightened by those who would have us believe that we are a minority: Good is much more widespread and powerful than the world would have us believe. We are fighting against an invisible enemy that seeks to divide citizens, to separate children from their parents, grandchildren from their grandparents, the faithful from their pastors, students from teachers, and customers from vendors. Let us not allow centuries of Christian civilization to be erased under the pretext of a virus, and an odious technological tyranny to be established, in which nameless and faceless people can decide the fate of the world by confining us to a virtual reality. If this is the plan to which the powers of this earth intend to make us yield, know that Jesus Christ, King and Lord of History, has promised that “the gates of Hell shall not prevail”.
 
Let us entrust government leaders and all those who rule over the fate of nations, to Almighty God, that He may enlighten and guide them in this time of great crisis. May they remember that, just as the Lord will judge us Pastors for the flock which He has entrusted to us, so will He also judge government leaders for the peoples whom they have the duty to defend and govern.
 
With faith, let us beseech the Lord to protect the Church and the world. May the Blessed Virgin, Help of Christians, (Monsignor showing thumbs up after reading Blessed Virgin, Help of Christians) crush the head of the ancient Serpent and defeat the plans of the children of darkness.
8 May 2020
Our Lady of the Rosary of Pompeii
ss: Archbishop Vigano, Former Vatican Ambassador Apostolic Nuncio to the United States for many years, Cardinals Mueller, Zen and Pujats and of course, others.
 
So my dear faithful, this needs no further comment.
 
One other thing I would like to mention is that today is also Mother’s Day and I want to wish all women – all women – all females – a happy and blessed Mother’s Day and you are remembered in a special way in my Mass. Now why would I include all females, all women, whether they have had children or not? Because this is what God made you for, whether or not you end up having children for one reason or another or the effects of original sin that’s so flagrant. This is why feminism is so evil. This is why the crime of abortion, the sin of abortion is so evil. Abortion rips from a mother; it murders the very reason that mother was created by God in the first place. That was her purpose that was ripped from her womb and murdered. It’s no wonder we have such disturbance and evil in our society when that is available on demand. You know, I can’t go into my favorite restaurant now and sit down and have whatever is on the menu there. But you can go into an abortuary and murder your child during this crisis. There is something more than evil about that and radically wrong. So to all women, all females, a blessed Mother’s Day and you are remembered in this Mass in particular.
One final question: Quo vadis?
 
In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
