Jesuits on the Big and Little Screens in 2017

Sarre-Union ChJésuites 03

Shaun Willcock:

With a Jesuit sitting in the seven-hilled city as Pope Francis I, and the Jesuit Order holding the Vatican in a grip of iron, the Order is on top of the world, riding a wave of global power and authority and enjoying celebrity status.

The pontificate of Francis I is the reign of Jesuitism.

And in order to further enhance its image worldwide, the Order has seen to it that the motion picture and television media have been harnessed to promote the image of the Jesuits to the masses, at such a time as this.  Two movies and a TV series are the result – and millions will be captivated by the work of this sinister and deadly Order, entertained by a sanitised version of what the Jesuits are really all about.

One film is about Jesuit mission work; the other is about the Jesuit founder, Ignatius of Loyola; and the TV series is about the Jesuit pope, Francis I.

“Silence”: Bringing Worldwide Attention to the Jesuits

One of Hollywood’s leading movie directors, Martin Scorsese – a Roman Catholic, sort of – made the movie, Silence, in 2016, based on a 1966 novel written by Japanese Roman Catholic author, Shusaku Endo.[1]  Described by a Roman Catholic news source as “a thrilling depiction of the persecution suffered by Jesuit priests in 17th-century Japan”, the same news source confidently predicted that “the film is sure to bring worldwide attention to the Society of Jesus, 30 years after the other great film about the congregation: ‘The Mission.’”[2] Bringing worldwide attention to the Jesuits: now that is worth winking at Scorsese’s somewhat-less-than-devout Romanism, as far as the Jesuits are concerned.  They have always been lenient towards erring Papists, if those same Papists are able to serve their interests in any way.

A renowned United States Jesuit, James Martin, editor of the Jesuit magazine, America, worked on the production of Silence, coaching the actors to enable them to “understand the Jesuit charisma.”  He said, “I was asked to look at the script to see what a Jesuit would say and do in certain situations.  I also helped the actors prepare for their roles, especially Andrew Garfield, who plays the lead, I led him through the spiritual exercises of St. Ignatius, which was a six month project, and he was very well prepared by the time he was finished.”[3]

Garfield himself said, “I studied with Father Martin all things Jesuit and attempted to crack what it means to be a soldier for Christ.  The basis of that was the exercises [Ignatius’ “Spiritual Exercises”] for me.”  Although his ancestry is Jewish, Garfield was raised in a non-religious household.  He did the 30-day Jesuit retreat, but not in the customary way.  The third week was spent at a retreat house in Wales.  He described it as “a silent week, and intense”, and added: “Yeah, it was remarkable, really.  I was so grateful for the sacred time.”[4]  Scorsese also gave Garfield many books and films to prepare him for the role.

What are Loyola’s Spiritual Exercises?  They are vital to the training of any Jesuit.  “The Spiritual Exercises work on the imagination of the candidate, helped by a ‘director’.  Various biblical scenes are ‘relived’ in front of him, beautiful ones alternating with frightening ones.  His sighs, inhalings, breathing, and periods of silence are all noted down.  After a number of weeks of this, he is ready for indoctrination.”[5]  It is not surprising that Garfield, even after a modified experience of the Exercises, emerged a different man.  This is what the Exercises are designed to do.  The lead actor in this film about the Jesuits had been molded into something of a Jesuit novice himself.

Garfield said that what he took away from the film, personally, was “endless”.  “What I’ve been given by playing this role and being with Marty [Scorsese], being with Father Martin, doing the [Ignatian] exercises, it’s impossible to sum up.  I’ve been given so many different graces for the whole experience.  By the end of it, of filming, I [didn’t] even need the film to come out or for people to like it.  The year of preparation, those months making the film, were worth it.”[6]

Clearly, authenticity regarding Jesuitism was important to Scorsese.  He went to a lot of trouble to see to it.  The Jesuits were very obviously expecting great things from the film.

Before the film’s premiere, Scorsese met with the most famous living Jesuit on earth, Francis I.  The director brought his wife and two daughters to the meeting, along with the film’s producer and his wife.

During the traditional exchange of gifts, Scorsese gave the pope a religious picture, saying as he did so: “This is a Japanese artist from the 17th century, and the original is in the 26 Martyr (Museum).  But this is the most revered image for the hidden Christians.  This is with the Jesuits.  We used this for research in our film.”[7]

Amazing how Scorsese had come back into favour in Roman Catholic circles.  This was the man who made the blasphemous movie, The Last Temptation of Christ, back in 1988.  When it was released it was immediately opposed by the Roman Catholic institution as morally objectionable, and people picketed outside theatres and boycotted the movie in their thousands.  Scorsese, commenting on the film, said: I’ve always wanted to do a spiritual movie but religion gets in the way.”  He said that The Last Temptation of Christ sought to “tear away all the old Hollywood films… and create a Jesus you could talk to and get to know.”[8]  Hardly the kind of statements guaranteed to earn the approval of the Roman Catholic hierarchy.  Scorsese was certainly unpopular.  But now, almost three decades later, here he was being fêted in the Vatican itself, meeting the pope, and preparing for his new film’s premiere to be shown in Rome.  The Jesuits now looked with indulgent fondness on Scorsese the black sheep, a man who had once wanted to become a priest.  Make a film about the Jesuits and be forgiven and rehabilitated back into the fold, apparently.

The Wandering Jew

Wandering Jew ChapbookThe holy church to this day, in the city of Mexico, to my own knowledge, receives large sums from the same sources, and these are supported principally by monks, friars and priests. No wonder, then, that the publication of the Wandering Jew should be prevented in Catholic countries. The writer, Mr. Sue, is a man of the world, he has read the book of nature with as much attention as he has those in his library. He is a well-read historian, and possesses an admirable faculty of communicating his ideas. He clothes them with a simplicity and beauty, almost peculiar to himself. The man that could depict Rodin, the sanctimonious Jesuit, in his true character, as Mr. Sue has done, must necessarily be silenced in a Catholic country. It must not be known that Jesuits may come among us in the garb of merchants, or in any other disguise which they may please to assume; no intimation must be given, that the poisoned cup, the assassin’s dagger, the desperate sea-captain, or the valiant soldier, could be concealed under a Jesuit’s cowl, or that he may throw off that cowl, at his pleasure, and exchange it for a pea-jacket, a dancing pump, the violin, the fencing foil, or even the costume of a barber, or tamer of wild beasts.

It will not answer the purposes of the holy church, that a man should live and write, who is capable of raising the curtain which hides its do-signs, and conceals the instruments, which she has ever used, and is now using, for the destruction of liberty. Such a man is the author of the Wandering Jew.

No man can look at the picture which he has drawn of Ignatius Morok, without recognizing, in its every feature, those of a Jesuit and a villain. He travelled about, in the assumed character of a “tamer of wild beasts,” but in reality, he was a Jesuit missionary, and sent by that order, with full power to accomplish, by any means within his power, one of the most infamous acts of fraud that over was committed by man.

He was accompanied, (as the reader of Eugene Sue will find,) by a lay Jesuit, named Karl, and I cannot give my readers a better idea of Jesuitism, as it ever has been, and is now, than by requesting of them to observe the course adopted by those two villains in accomplishing the object of their errand. Look at their treatment of the honest and faithful Dagobert. Look at the cruelties which they inflicted on the two innocent orphans, committed to his charge. See the schemes, by which they have made even the wife of Dagobert subservient to their designs. See the arts by which Jesuit priests crept into families, under various disguises, sowing amongst them discord, hatred, and domestic strife. They have put the father against the son, and the son against the father; husband against wife, and wife against husband; brother against sister, and sister against brother. See how they have contrived to filch from the poor and almost starving, the last sou they possessed, to have masses said for the repose of the souls of those who were actually living, to the knowledge of the priest, though represented by him at the confessional, to have been long since dead!

See how one of those vagabond Jesuits, in the assumed character of a physician, aided by one of the sisters of that order, Madam de St. Dizier, imposed upon the heiress, Mademoiselle de Cardoville. He offered his services to accompany her to visit a friend of hers, but had a private understanding with a lay Jesuit in the ‘disguise of a hack-driver, to take them to a lunatic asylum, where he deposited the heiress. I will not quote from the “Wandering Jew,” it would be depriving my readers of much pleasure; but I would recommend the perusal of it, in order to become acquainted with some of the prominent features of Jesuitism. The work appears as a romance, but it contains many sad and serious facts. It is a compendium of Jesuitism, and should be looked upon as a warning to the citizens of this new world. Americans will scarcely believe that we have any such Jesuits in this country, as are described in the Wandering Jew. I tell them they are mistaken; we have them in every state in the Union, but especially in New York, Maryland, District of Columbia, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts. I speak from my own knowledge.

Dangerous Enemies to Civil and Religious Liberty

St Ignatius of Loyola (1491-1556) Founder of the Jesuits“It is my opinion that if the liberties of this country – the United States of America – are destroyed, it will be by the subtlety of the Roman Catholic Jesuit priests, for they are the most crafty, dangerous enemies to civil and religious liberty. They have instigated most of the wars of Europe.”

The Most Absolute of Despotisms

Ignatius of Loyola (militant)“The Jesuits are a MILITARY organization, not a religious order. Their chief is a general of an army, not the mere father abbot of a monastery. And the aim of this organization is power – power in its most despotic exercise – absolute power, universal power, power to control the world by the volition of a single man [i.e., the Black Pope, the Superior General of the Jesuits]. Jesuitism is the most absolute of despotisms [sic] – and at the same time the greatest and most enormous of abuses…”

Michael Savage on the current U.S. president:

Religion.  What has the President actually done for religious freedom?  That tepid bill he passed a few weeks ago didn’t really please the truly conservative Christians out there.  They-They were not fooled by it.  He is basically advised, I’m sorry to tell you, by Jesuits.  I don’t, look, I don’t want to go into it because there’s more to this than meets the eye.  Uh, not a good thing.  Almost all of the people advising Trump on his transition are Jesuits.  You say, well what’s wrong with Jesuits?  I don’t-just say Jerry Brown.  Just say Jerry Brown.  They’re all very left-wing.  All of them.  All of them.  All of them.  All of them.  All of them.

The Jesuit’s New World Order

An old Ministry of Truth interview between Gordon Comstock & Darryl Eberhart.

The Ministry of Truth was a website run by Gordon Comstock that featured interviews on a variety of topics, from theology to health, science, history, and more.  This was the website that first made me aware that there was a historicist interpretation of biblical prophecy.  Unfortunately, the Ministry of Truth is no longer online, and neither are its archives which were once available at thinkorbebeaten.com (Vyzygoth/Keith Hanson’s old site).  I do not know why Gordon Comstock and Vyzygoth have removed their work from the internet, but someone kindly posted this on YouTube so people can listen:

Zionists or Jesuits? (Debate)

An interesting debate over who really controls the world. I do not consider any of these sources entirely reliable, but the debate is interesting nonetheless:

The Land of the Jesuits’ Operations

History of the Society of Jesus in North America - colonial and federal (1907) (14586971919)

“America,” as a talented writer (Giustiniani) expresses it, “is the promised land, the land of the Jesuits’ operations. To obtain the ascendency, they have no need of a mercenary Swiss guard, or the assistance of the holy alliance, but a majority of votes, which can easily be obtained by an importation of Roman Catholics from Ireland, Bavaria, and Austria. Rome, viewed at a distance, is a colossus; near at hand, its grandeur diminishes, its charm is lost. But the Jesuits are every where the same—cunning, immoral, and sneaking intriguers, until they have obtained the ascendency. Rome feels her weakness at home; she knows herself to be a mere political institution, dressed in the garment of Christianity. She takes good care to uphold that holy militia, the Jesuits, in order to appear what she is not. It is a strife for existence. I am not a politician,” says this writer, “but knowing the active spirit of Jesuitism, and the indifference of the generality of Protestants, I have no doubt whatever, that in ten years the Jesuits will have a mighty influence over the ballot-box, and in twenty they will direct it according to their own pleasure. Now they fawn, in ten years they will menace, and in twenty command.”
