The announcement of a project to build an Abrahamic Family House in Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) on November 15, 2019 shows that the Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together, co-signed on February 4, 2019 by Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, constitutes a roadmap for the current pontificate.
A Temple for a New World Religion
On November 19, 2019, Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, former apostolic nuncio to the United States, published his analysis on the construction project of this common house, grouping together a synagogue, a mosque, and a church on Vaticanist Aldo Maria Valli’s website. Here are some significant passages: “On Friday November 15, 2019, as reported by Vatican News, the Pope received in audience the great Imam Ahmed Al-Tayeb, accompanied by various personalities and representatives of Al-Azhar University, all animated by the desire to give concrete form to the content of the Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together, co-signed last February.”
About the project itself, the Roman diplomat writes: “Sir David Adjaye Obe is the creator of this architectural project, which will rise in the opulent and extravagant Abu Dhabi. It is the House of the Abrahamic Family, a sort of New Tent of Universal Brotherhood that evokes that other Tent of Reception in which the Old Testament Patriarch hosted three mysterious Angels (cf. Gen. 18), the prefiguration of the Trinitarian God who was fully revealed to the legitimate Abrahamic posterity through faith in Jesus Christ.”
“The House of the Abrahamic Family is therefore the name of this structure that will house a synagogue, a mosque, and a church, naturally dedicated to the Poverello [St. Francis of Assisi]. Sir David’s project envisages the three different places of worship united by unique foundations and placed inside a garden, evoking a New Eden, a Gnostic and Masonic new edition of the paradise of the Creation. As explained to the pope, this ‘structure ... will serve as a place of individual worship, but also for dialogue and interreligious exchange.’ In fact, a fourth building is also planned, the headquarters of the Centre for Studies and Research on the Human Fraternity, whose objective, which is inferred from the Abu Dhabi document, will be to ‘make the three religions known.’ The ceremonies for the presentation of the Human Fraternity Award will also take place here.”
“The building of the House of the Abrahamic Family appears like a Babelesque enterprise, designed by the enemies of God, of the Catholic Church, and of the only true religion capable of saving man and the entirety of creation from destruction, both in the present as well as eternal and definitive. The foundations of this ‘House,’ destined to give way and crumble, precisely where, at the hands of the same builders, they are about to remove the Only Corner Stone: Jesus Christ, Savior and Lord, on whom stands the House of God. This is why the Apostle Paul warned, ‘let each one take care how he builds upon it. For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ’ (I Cor. 3:10). In the garden of Abu-Dhabi is about to arise the Temple of the World Syncretic Neo-Religion with its anti-Christian dogmas. Not even the most optimistic Freemasons could have imagined so much!”
And to show the true cause of this frightening project Archbishop Vigano states: “Pope Bergoglio is thus proceeding to a further implementation of the apostasy of Abu Dhabi, the fruit of the pantheistic and agnostic neo-modernism that tyrannizes the Roman Church, germinated from the Council document Nostra aetate. We are forced to recognize it: the poisonous fruits of the ‘springtime of the Council’ are before the eyes of anyone who no longer lets himself be blinded by the prevailing Lie.”
The former nuncio found the solution in the traditional magisterium: “Pius XI had alerted us and warned us. But the teachings that preceded Vatican II were thrown to the winds as intolerant and obsolete. The comparison between the pre-conciliar Magisterium and the new teachings of Nostra aetate and Dignitatis humanae—to cite only those—shows a terrible discontinuity, which we must note, and which urgently needs to be amended as soon as possible. Adjuvant deo... Let us listen to the words of the Supreme Pontiff Pius XI [in Mortalium Animos, 1928], when the Popes used to speak the language of Truth, chiseled with fire in diamond: “such attempts can nowise be approved by Catholics, founded as they are on that false opinion which considers all religions to be more or less good and praiseworthy, since they all in different ways manifest and signify that sense which is inborn in us all, and by which we are led to God and to the obedient acknowledgment of His rule. Not only are those who hold this opinion in error and deceived, but also in distorting the idea of true religion they reject it, and little by little, turn aside to naturalism and atheism…”
A Secular Policy
In line with this House of the Abrahamic Family, we must place the Vatican’s request for a World Day for Human Fraternity on December 4. On behalf of the High Committee for Human Fraternity [Abu Dhabi], Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar have co-signed a letter to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres. This World Day should be held on February 4 of each year, precisely on the anniversary date of the signing of the Human Fraternity Document. In addition, the letter calls for the United Nations to participate in the World Summit on Human Fraternity, which the Committee wishes to organize soon. Antonio Guterres, as one could easily guess, responded favorably to these proposals. He has appointed his Special Adviser on Hate Speech and the Prevention of Genocide, Adama Dieng, to oversee this new cooperation between the United Nations and the Holy See.
At a conference given by journalist Sandro Magister, on November 30, in Anagni, Italy, they announced two meetings that will take place next year, at the Vatican’s initiative, from a more secular than religious perspective, and even more secular than Catholic.
There will be “in Assisi from March 26 to 28,” reports the Vatican, “thousands of aspiring economists from all over the world, for ‘a festival of the economy of the young with the pope, a middle way between Greta Thunberg and the powerful of the earth,’ as announced by the main organizer, Luigino Bruni, a member of the Focolare movement, professor of political economy at the LUMSA [a private Roman university] and adviser to the dicastery for the laity, family and life. In the letter of invitation to the event, Francis proposed nothing less than ‘a pact to change the current economy’ and to replace it with an ‘Economy of Francis’ (read: St. Francis of Assisi, but with a ready double meaning). Among the personalities who have already confirmed their presence, in addition to Bruni and Stefano Zamagni, president of the pontifical academy of social sciences, there will be the Nobel laureates Amartya Sen and Muhammad Yunus, the Malthusian economist Jeffrey Sachs, and, in this pontificate an inevitable guest at every Vatican event concerning the economy and ecology, Carlo Petrini, founder of Slow Food and previously a personal guest of the pope at the Synod on the Amazon, as well as the Indian ecologist Vandana Shiva, as much celebrated within the world of ‘popular movements’ as discredited by the scientific community worthy of this name,” concludes Sandro Magister.
“The second event is scheduled for May 14, 2020 at the Vatican, and will be open to ‘all public figures’ who ‘are engaged at the worldwide level’ in the field of education, regardless of their religion.” According to Sandro Magister, “what is striking is the complete absence from his educational project of any sort of Christian specificity. In the video message with which Francis launched the initiative, there is not the slightest verbal trace of God, nor of Jesus, nor of the Church. The dominant formula is ‘new humanism,’ with its accompaniment of ‘shared home,’ ‘universal solidarity,’ ‘fraternity,’ ‘convergence,’ ‘welcome,’”…
“And the religions? These too are grouped together and neutralized in an indistinct ‘dialogue.’ In order to ‘reclaim the terrain from discrimination,’ the pope refers to the Document on Human Fraternity which he signed on February 4, 2019 with the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, a document in which even the ‘pluralism and the diversity of religions’ are seen as ‘willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings.’ The novelty of this initiative of Francis consists precisely in the fact that it is the first time a pope has made his own and taken the lead in a global educational pact that is so radically secularized.
FSSPX.News site reported on this project of a global educational alliance in an article dated September 30, 2019, which shows that Francis’s dream is not Catholic: the supernatural dimension is completely absent. This educational alliance is naturalistic, ignoring original sin and proposing objectives that only Christian civilization can achieve. Finally, it is a utopia: wanting to take into account all ethical or religious trends in education is purely chimerical.
As Sandro Magister points out: “This secular flattening is not marginal, in the political vision of Pope Francis. In Corriere della Sera of last October 2 Ernesto Galli della Loggia hit the mark when he recognized in this pontificate the tendency to dissolve Catholicism ‘in the indistinct,’ to interpret ‘the intimate missionary vocation of Catholicism toward the world as equivalent to the need to become confused with the world itself.’ Only that in the world, beginning in the second half of the 1900s, is being imposed ‘an ethical ideology of naturalistic inspiration’ made of individual rights, of pacifism, of environmentalism, of anti-sexism, which is to assign to religious discourse, when it does not exclude it altogether, only a subordinate, decorative place. So when Pope Francis lays down every trait of the Church’s historical identity and assimilates it with the ideology and language of the world, he is making a very, very risky choice. He would like to make the world Christian, with the serious risk instead of making the Church worldly.” That is to say, to give the Church over to the spirit of this world.
From Abu Dhabi to Assisi
Returning to the project for a House of the Abrahamic Family, in Corrispondenza Romana of November 20, 2019, the historian Cristina Siccardi shows, as Archbishop Vigano did above, the deep roots of the current crisis: “We must not think that the interreligious citadel is an original and avantgarde idea of Pope Francis’ pontificate. It comes from the ‘spirit of Assisi’—which was not, is not and can never be the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi—in 1986, when John Paul II gathered all the representatives of the most important religions of the world to pray, in human fraternity, for peace in the world. But this ‘spirit of Assisi’ has its roots in the Second Vatican Council, as evidenced by the document Nostra aetate (October 28, 1965), which opened interreligious dialogue, canceling the pedagogical mission of the Church to condemn religious errors : ‘The Catholic Church rejects nothing that is true and holy in these religions. She regards with sincere reverence those ways of conduct and of life, those precepts and teachings which, though differing in many aspects from the ones she holds and sets forth, nonetheless often reflect a ray of that Truth which enlightens all men’ (NA 2).”
“Liberalism has led the Church of men to religious freedom; religious freedom led it to ecumenism and to interfaith choice, confusing the issues according to a secular criterion: no religion possesses the Truth, but all are carriers of plural truths which can lead, with human fraternity, to world peace. The ‘spirit of Assisi’ today creates the House of the Abrahamic Family, but this ‘spirit of Abu Dhabi’ has the merit of providing clarity between those who choose to belong exclusively to the living Christ, real and eternal in His humanity and His divinity, and those who, on the contrary, choose the fraudulent, diabolical, and unreal gods (be they of religious or secular origin).”
On February 24, 2019, three weeks after the Abu Dhabi Document, Fr. Davide Pagliarani, Superior General of the Society of Saint Pius X, said in a press release: “Following St. Paul and our revered founder, Abp. Marcel Lefebvre, under the protection of Our Lady, Queen of Peace, we will continue to hand on the Catholic faith that we have received (cf. 1 Cor. 11:23), working with all our might for the salvation of souls and of nations, by preaching the true faith and the true religion.
“Going therefore, teach ye all nations: baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you” (Mt. 28:19-20). “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall be condemned” (Mk. 16:16).”
