As a basis for understanding the way in which Francis uses Catholics to advance his anti-Catholic agenda, it is useful to know something about a similar relationship found in nature, involving the so-called “zombie ant fungus”:
“Native to tropical forests in Asia and South America, the Ophiocordyceps unilateralis fungus has a very specific set of temperature and humidity requirements it needs to thrive and reproduce. Rather than leave it to chance, the fungus recruits nearby carpenter ants to scout out the perfect position. Using its spores, the fungus infects the ants and dramatically changes their behaviour. Instead of working normally alongside their colony, these ants leave their nest, high in the trees, and make their way down to the lower leaves. Once there, the ant clamps down hard on the underside of a leaf in a so-called 'death grip'. The fungus, having got what it needs, kills the ant.”
The prospect of the “zombie Catholic pope” might seem even more preposterous. And yet, even if we were to say that Francis is not the pope, we see the man reputed to be the pope causing Catholics to abandon the Faith and attack the Church.
Neither the ants nor the fungi exercise anything approaching human reason in this interaction, but most of us nonetheless feel some revulsion at the parasitic behavior: we may not like ants, but it is hard to take the side of the fungus here. Tragically, far too many people fail to feel a similar revulsion for the even more grotesque way in which Francis and his collaborators perform the same type of parasitic takeover of Catholics, which we can see with the following comparisons:
The Fungus is Not an Ant. Just as the fungus is not an ant, Francis is not a Catholic. Some otherwise sensible Catholics may still applaud when he says or does something that sounds vaguely Catholic — such as the bizarre attempt to consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary — but none of the pre-Vatican II popes would have recognized the man as a Catholic. If we attribute any sincerity to his professed beliefs we would have to identify him as an immoral Protestant.
The Fungus Needs the Ant. Just as the fungus needs the ant to help it thrive and reproduce, Francis and his globalist collaborators need as many Catholics as possible to support their cause. Critically, the globalists realize that a strong Church will always overcome their stratagems, so they must weaken Catholic opposition to their onslaughts. Beyond this, though, they need the semblance of a unifying moral authority to help their immoral agenda to spread, and the only universal authority capable of fulfilling that role is the Catholic Church. The actual Catholic Church can never promote anything other than God’s holy truth, but the globalists only need a substantial number of zombified Catholics to tacitly support their agenda for it to appear that the Church supports their efforts.
The Fungus Poisons the Ant. Just as the fungus poisons the ant, Francis and his fellow collaborators must infect Catholics with heretical beliefs. The pre-Vatican II popes warned against these poisons, but the Modernists simply adapted so that they could penetrate the defenses of unsuspecting Catholics. Now that almost the entire Catholic population has been infected with Modernist beliefs in the wake of Vatican II, Francis has an army of zombified Catholics — Biden, Pelosi, Fr. Martin, Cupich, McElroy, Roche, etc. — who practically beg for any new poison he can deploy.
The Fungus Changes the Ant’s Behavior. Just as the fungus changes the ant’s behavior — making it depart its colony in the high part of the tree to seek lower leaves — Francis and his collaborators use their poison to change how Catholics believe and practice their religion. Instead of pursuing the glories and beauty of the immutable Catholic Faith that nourished the saints, Francis seeks to accompany souls in a life of sin. He corrupts them to such an extent that they abandon the fundamental beliefs of the Church, embrace the most unholy nonsense, and then turn on those Catholics who remain uninfected.
The Fungus Destroys the Ant. Just as the fungus destroys the ant after it has fulfilled its purpose, Francis and his fellow collaborators destroy the religion, and ultimately the souls, of the Catholics they infect. Even if Francis and the globalists do not desire to send Catholics to hell, the one who controls their agenda (Satan) certainly does.
As unbelievable as the zombie ant fungus may sound, the prospect of the “zombie Catholic pope” might seem even more preposterous. And yet, even if we were to say that Francis is not the pope, we see the man reputed to be the pope causing Catholics to abandon the Faith and attack the Church.
No matter how much Francis and his collaborators threaten us, we must hold firm to the conviction that God cannot possibly want such heretical men to persuade us to abandon the immutable Catholic Faith.
In various ways, we had been warned that this could happen. In his They Have Uncrowned Him, Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre quoted the original “small exorcism” against Satan that Leo XIII composed:
“Behold, very cunning enemies have filled the Church, Spouse of the Immaculate Lamb, with bitterness; have watered it with absinthe; they have cast ungodly hands onto all that is desirable in it. Where the See of the blessed Peter and the Chair of Truth were established like a light for the nations, there they have set the throne of abomination of their impiety; in order that once the shepherd is struck down, they may be able to disperse the flock.”
Archbishop Lefebvre noted that one of Leo XIII’s successors must have removed this language, perhaps because they found it “unthinkable.” For his own part, Archbishop Lefebvre acknowledged that he could not comprehend how such demonic infiltration of the Church could occur:
“How is it possible? you will say. I do not know at all, I admit it; but there it is, more and more, day after day.”
In addition to Leo XIII’s “small exorcism,” there have been other warnings that Satan could deceive faithful Catholics by appearing to gain control of the Mystical Body of Christ:
- "You know, Gabriele? It is Satan who has been introduced into the bosom of the Church and within a very short time will come to rule a false Church.” ( Padre Pio to Fr Gabriel Amorth)
- “Rome will lose the Faith and become the seat of the Antichrist.” (Our Lady of La Salette)
- “Because [Satan’s] religion will be brotherhood without the fatherhood of God, he will deceive even the elect. He will set up a counterchurch which will be the ape of the Church, because he, the Devil, is the ape of God. It will have all the notes and characteristics of the Church, but in reverse and emptied of its divine content.” (Bishop Fulton Sheen, Communism and the Conscience of the West)
Unless and until Francis converts, the best service we can render him and the Church is to completely reject even the appearance of cooperating with his demonic globalist agenda.
As Catholics, we are not required to believe any of these prognostications, and many faithful Catholics firmly believe it would be impossible for any of this to happen. How else, though, can we explain what we see so plainly? How else do we explain the bishop in white zombifying hundreds of millions of Catholics so that they chase their own perdition by going along with the demonic globalist agenda?
But unlike the helpless carpenter ant, we can simply refuse to be parasitized by Francis’s anti-Catholic poisons. No matter how much Francis and his collaborators threaten us, we must hold firm to the conviction that God cannot possibly want such heretical men to persuade us to abandon the immutable Catholic Faith. Unless and until Francis converts, the best service we can render him and the Church is to completely reject even the appearance of cooperating with his demonic globalist agenda. Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us!
