PONTIFICAL DECREE

“Thou shalt not have strange gods before Me…” (Exodus 20:3)

GREGORY XVIII
Servant of the True Church of Jesus Christ by the mercy and election of God

During the course of the history of the People of God, which we are acquainted with through the books of the Old Testament included in the Bible, we often see the immense offense made against God when one of His children kept or even concealed a stone idol in order to pay it some form of worship, veneration or even respect.  God then severely chastised the individuals who were guilty of this sacrilegious idolatry, and oftentimes even the people.

What took place this month in Rome on the occasion of the so-called “Amazon Synod” is even worse.  To circulate in Rome, inside the Vatican and even in various churches, statuettes of pagan divinities carried by Catholic prelates accompanied by pagan shamans is an abomination.

IN THE NAME OF GOD, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, in the name of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary Mother of God, in the name of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul, in the name of the Holy Pontiffs our predecessors, in the name of all the Saints and Angels who contemplate the face of God, We condemn these blasphemies and blasphemers.

We invite all priests of good will, as well as all the faithful who still have faith, to join with us in asking pardon of God.  Let us unite to ask pardon of God.  Together let us make amends.  Let us offer Him reparation.  May the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass be offered in expiation.  May those who are conscious of the gravity of the hour enter into prayer.  Let them join forces and take turns at the foot of Jesus-Host present in the Most Blessed Sacrament.  Let us implore His pardon and mercy.  Let us compensate by honoring Him.  May our afflicted heavenly Mother be consoled.  We ask in particular for recitation of the Holy Rosary.  May each one humble himself before God:

IF NOT, GOD WILL STRIKE.
“Be not deceived: God is not mocked.” (St. Paul, Galatians 6:7)

The Church has distanced itself greatly from God for more than half a century now. And God is silent and patient. For a long time now, God has been flouted and the faithful have been led into error and falsehood. And God is silent and patient. This time it has gone further, men thinking that God will maintain His silence and His patience. This shameless public mockery will soon come to an end.

When the Church was in its beginnings, a multitude of martyrs shed their blood, gave their lives in order to remain faithful to Jesus Christ Crucified and to reject all other worship and idols which then covered the earth.

May the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God, lead souls of good will to obedience to Her Divine Son Jesus.

Given at the Sanctuary of the Keys of Saint Peter,
