May 7, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Catholic clergy led by former papal nuncio Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò and Cardinals Robert Sarah, Gerhard Ludwig Mueller, Joseph Zen, and Janis Pujats have joined an appeal “for the Church and the world” that warns that the COVID-19 pandemic is being used as a “pretext” by world leaders to “control” people, strip them of their fundamental rights, while providing a “disturbing prelude to the realization of a world government beyond all control” (read full text below).

                                   Some good names on that list, but more are needed !
Glad to see some of our shepherds stepping up to resist these very obvious efforts to implement some sort of global technocracy. God bless them
It's possible to read the text, and to sign it, also. Link here. I did. 1576 have signed so far. I think I was 1244 or some such.
They need to clean up their own house before bemoaning what the world is doing. Francis is saying obey the lockdown rules and the Vigano gang is doing the opposite. More cognitive dissonance from the R&R crowd.

Unfortunately, it seems that while Cardinal Sarah may share some of the beliefs contained in this petition, he expressly asked not to be listed as a signatory.

Great pic!  If that's Old St. Mary's, that's where my folks got married.
'(S)ome friends of mine advised me not to sign your proposed Appeal.' Advised? Probably more like warned!

From Stilvm Cvriæ

By Marco Tosatti

Dear friends and enemies of Stilum Curiae, we receive this communiqué from Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, and we share it with you. The communiqué evidently follows the statement made by Card. Robert Sarah in Infovaticana.

STATEMENT May 8, 2020
Subject: His Eminence Cardinal Robert Sarah’s withdrawal of official support from the “Appeal for the Church and the World,” released yesterday, May 7.
At this time of serious crisis that the Church and the world are passing through, it is my wish to abide by an attitude of deep charity towards my brother in Christ, Cardinal Robert Sarah, whom I immediately forgave for the grave wrong he committed against the truth and my person. Genuine charity, however, cannot disregard the truth, since it has its foundation in it. I therefore have the duty, also for the sake of fraternal correction, to make known the series of events as they occurred, with regard to Cardinal Sarah’s signing of the Appeal.

Monday, May 4, at 4:00 p.m.

I had a telephone conversation with His Eminence, Cardinal Sarah. The call was recorded and lasted 6 minutes and 25 seconds.

Regarding the text of the Appeal, the Cardinal said: “It seems to me a very serious matter. I think that this Appeal will do much good, because it will make us reflect and take a position: I agree that it should be published as soon as possible.”

I then asked His Eminence if he intended to sign it. The Cardinal replied: “Yes, I agree to put my name to it, because this is a fight that we must engage in together, not only for the Catholic Church but for all mankind.”

Thursday, May 7

At 8:43 a.m. I telephoned His Eminence, to ask him if he had a telephone number for Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Mueller, which he later kindly sent to me by SMS. During this telephone call, which lasted 4 minutes, Cardinal Sarah made no reference to his wish to withdraw his signature.

At 3:00 p.m. I began to send out the text of the Appeal with the list of signatories, including Cardinal Sarah, to press agencies, blogs and various newspapers.

At 5:48 p.m. I received a text message from the Cardinal, but only became aware of it about an hour and a half later. At the time the message was sent, I was totally absorbed in the work of disseminating the Appeal and I did not see the arrival of His Eminence’s message and therefore was not able immediately to become aware of its contents.

At 7:37 p.m. the Cardinal telephoned me asking if I had seen his message. I said no.

This is the text of the message sent to me by the Cardinal: “Dearest Excellency, as I am still working in the Roman Curia, some friends of mine advised me not to sign your proposed Appeal. Perhaps it would be better to remove my name this time. I am very sorry. You know my friendship and my closeness to you. Thank you for your understanding. Robert Card. Sarah.”

The cardinal informed me in his telephone call that he intended to remove his name from the list of signatories. I was terribly sorry and pointed out to His Eminence that the Appeal and the signatures had already been circulated “universally” for more than four hours. The conversation ended without His Eminence requesting or suggesting any solution.

One could, for example, have agreed on a “joint statement” in which the Cardinal’s decision to withdraw his signature was made public. None of this was done. We cordially said goodbye expressing our esteem and mutual support. Faced with this de facto situation, to which neither he nor I were able to find a solution, I took the liberty of encouraging His Eminence, pointing out to him how much his support of the Appeal would be of comfort and encouragement to a great many faithful.

With surprise and deep regret, I then learned that His Eminence had used his twitter account, without giving me any notice, to make statements that cause serious harm to the truth and to my person.

I am very sorry that this matter, which is due to human weakness, and for which I bear no resentment towards the person who caused it, has distracted our attention from what must seriously concern us at this dramatic moment.

I confirm that the name of His Eminence Cardinal Robert Sarah has been promptly removed from the official website of the Appeal, as can be seen at:

+ Carlo Maria Viganò, Archbishop, Apostolic Nuncio

Official translation.
Pray for Cardinal Sarah.

I was also thinking too, as Countries start to come out of lock down, I'll know for sure this is an orchestrated attack if we get a COVID 2.0, as even with the bush fires in Australia, there were arsonists setting little brush fires (and there has been no news of who got caught and why they lighted them) and of course, you set brush fires hoping to start a big bush fire.

There was the Plague in the 1300's and the Spanish Flu in the 1900's (Any others you can add?), but to have Ebola, SARS, Swine Flu and COVID all within 20 years? Looks very suspicious to me, like someone is lighting some brush fires in the hope that a big one will take off, and the two places it outbreaks are Africa and Asia, the two places those like Bill Gates believe are the most over populated and something needs to be done about.

In any case, if a COVID 2.0 mysteriously breaks out as Countries ease lock down measures, I'll know for sure it's an orchestrated attack.

"For the sake of His sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world."

God Bless You

Far, far too many to type with one finger as I do. Yellow fever, cholera, and smallpox all come to mind. Here is a list of epidemics and pandemics. In reality, since the development of germ theory in the 19th century and of virology in the early 20th, we have had far fewer epidemics and pandemics than at any time in recorded human history.
