Papa Francis, Papa Francis Aleppe.......Papé Satàn, Papé Satàn Aleppe

Papé Satàn, papé Satàn aleppe
- Inferno VII
Robert Hollander (2000-2007), Inferno 7.1  
Plutus, the god of wealth in classical myth, wishes to prevent the passage of this living soul through Satan's kingdom. That, at least, is what we must surmise from Virgil's reaction, vv. 4-6, which assuages Dante's fear. There is a program of demonic resistance that makes Dante fearful throughout Inferno: Charon (Inf. III.91-93), Minos (Inf. V.19-20), Cerberus (Inf. VI.22-24), Phlegyas (Inf. VIII.18), the Furies (Inf. IX.52-54), the Minotaur (Inf. XII.14-15), Geryon (Inf. XVII.25-27), Malacoda and the Malebranche (Inf. XXI.23-XXIII.57), Nimrod (Inf. XXXI.67), Satan (Inf. XXXIV.22-27). In almost all of these scenes it is Virgil's task to quell the resistance of the infernal guardians and to reassure his charge. 
Pape Satàn, Pape Satàn, aleppe. The third verse suggests that Virgil understands these words spoken by Plutus. If that is correct, he is perhaps the only one to have done so. Over the centuries a continuing debate addresses, rather confusedly, the precise nature of these five words: whether they are part of a recognizable language or not; whether they are totally meaningless or have some meaning; whether they are an invocation of the power of Satan against invading Dante or an oath giving expression to the monster's surprise at the presence of a living soul in hell. For a review of the question see Hollander (Dante and Paul's “five words with understanding,” Occasional Papers, No. 1, Center for Medieval and Early Renaissance Texts and Studies [Binghamton, NY: Medieval and Renaissance Texts and Studies, 1992]), who sees this and Nimrod's similarly nonsensical five words (Inf. XXXI.67) as parodic inversions of the five words of clear speech called for by St. Paul, concerned about the over-reliance of the faithful on speaking in tongues (I Corinthians 14:19). Plutus's oath may be garbled speech, but it does contain 'pseudo-words' that have meaning: Pape represents either a Latin interjection (papae) of admiration, as many ancient commentators think, or/and a debased form of the Italian and Latin for 'pope' (papa – see Inf. VII.47: papi); Satàn would fairly clearly seem to be a form of the Italian 'Satana' or of the Latin 'Sathanas' and thus 'Satan'; aleppe, as some of the first commentators noticed, is the Italian form of the Hebrew word for the first letter of the alphabet, 'aleph,' as in the Latin expression 'alpha ed omega' (the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet, signifying 'the beginning and the end'), as God defines Himself in the Bible (Apoc. 1:8, repeated at Apoc. 21:6 and Apoc. 22:13). If one had to render these nonsense words in English one might say something like 'O Pope Satan, my god.' Fortunately, one does not have to. For the connection of these words in mixed language to those in the first verses of the seventh canto of Paradiso (there, naturally, totally positive in tone and meaning) – the parallelism is certainly striking – see Gian Roberto Sarolli, Prolegomena alla “Divina Commedia” (Florence: Olschki, 1971), pp. 289-90. 
Lorenzo Renzi (“Un aspetto del plurilinguismo medievale: dalla lingua dei re magi a 'Papé satan aleppe,'” in Omaggio a Gianfranco Folena, ed. Pier Vincenzo Mengaldo [Padua: Editoriale Programma, 1993]), pp. 61-73, presents evidence for a possible connection between instances of glossalalia in French medieval plays, some of which come from the mouths of pagan deities, and Dante's polyglot phrase here and in Inferno XXXI.67.

I once knew a crazed Medjugorje fanatic - a woman of course - I think she was one of the major players who made huge amounts of money off of the poor deluded followers of the false vision. She lived in a Chicago penthouse bought and paid for and she was Polish - I knew her only briefly and the thing that really irritated me at the time was her insistence in calling Pope John II  a "mama's boy" meaning that he had devotion to the  Mother of God, Mary Most Holy as a matter of fact she called any priest or bishop who had a devotion to the Blessed Virgin  - "mama's boy"

Too familiar if you ask me.

But for some reason most all those who attend the new mass have the same irritating habit in reducing devotion into something sickening sensual and way too familiar for comfort.

It all started with chanting "JPII we love you" and other such nonsense.

It's as if these people do not know how to keep their proper distance, everything is sensual to them. If it wasn't for their regular confessions and mass attendance I bet the lot of them would be spending all their waking hours producing porno -sensual porno that is.

It is no different with their devotion to Pope Francis - he is PAPA to them - even in their blog posts & combox comments, it's PAPA Francis PAPA Francis Aleppe:
Posted by Yaya on Thursday, Dec 5, 2013 6:35 PM (EST): “And “attractive” is precisely what Francis is. Also orthodox. Completely. As in, “has never denied or betrayed any teaching of holy Church”.” Our dear Holy Father is going to be okay…we know it as does he. Let them wail and moan and cry. Papa Francis stands with Christ and his predecessors when proclaiming the truth of the Gospel. He will stand until the end of time…I stand with him. Limbaugh and his co-cohorts have nothing on Jesus.
llinidiva kirthigdon • 2 days ago No.. Pope Francis has an even better phrase for these types - "self-absorbed promethean neo-pelagians." This is the greatest putdown of all time. I wouldn't like to get on Papa's bad side; he has a bit of a bite and snark to him. The SSPX Argentina didn't act up like this when Bergoglio was around because they seem scared of him. If they'd have shown up in Buenos Aires Cathedral to disrupt the memorial service when Bergoglio was presiding, the former bouncer would have thrown them out in a jiffy. I don't think that the entire group should be excommunicated, but I do think that the bishops and some of the superiors of SSPX should be. 
Illinidiva Dan • 18 hours ago Cardinal Bergoglio spent his nights in Buenos Aires serving the homeless. He would go out after dark and give them food. Apparently, Papa is still doing this. I highly doubt that Burke or any of the other Curia types are running around Rome with Papa and Don Corrado. It might dirty Buke magna cappa. I'm sorry. I keep hearing about how traditionalist bishops do care for the poor, but I have yet to hear about how they are doing so. Cardinal Bergoglio's actions in Buenos Aires are my new gold standard. I highly doubt that Burke was walking around St. Louis incognito after dark and I doubt that he is doing so in Rome. Burke was the farthest thing from pastoral. He excommunicated an entire parish in St. Louis and bullied victims of clerical sexual abuse. And I don't see him expressing a willingness in his new role to help people undergoing painful divorces, including abuse victims. In fact, he probably would advise women being slapped around that it is their fault and they should do a better job making sammiches for their husbands and have more babies. Burke epitomizes what is wrong with the Church. And many of the BurkeClones in the U.S. follow his example. Paprocki, Chaput, Cordileone, Sample, etc. are all about freaking about gay marriage and abortion and not about caring for poor people. I don't think any of them sneak out after dark and talk with the homeless.
Illinidiva margaret1910 • 2 days ago Again please tell me what pastoral bishops that Benedict appointed in the U.S.? I don't care about Tagle because I live in Chicago, not Manila. I was deeply concerned by some of the appointments in America because Cardinal George is retiring soon. I was concerned some culture warrior jerk like Chaput or a BurkeClone who likes playing sparkly dress up would be appointed. And I know my opinions don't matter but I pray that Papa appoints an O'Malley rather than a Burke in Chicago.
Jordan • a month ago I can't recall where I saw this headline (and I hadn't had time to click on the article right then), but I saw something to the effect stating that relationship/attachment to parents more important than formal religious education in determining whether children remain Catholic as they age (if the parents are raising them that way to begin with, that is). What do you know, being able to trust and feeling loved actually is worth more to human beings than being formally instructed and admonished from those they do not even know before they can "earn" the right to be loved. It doesn't guarantee anything, and it's not love to lie and say sin is not sin, but if someone knows you care, it's a lot easier to be open to your Christian witness. Papa Francis builds relationships, even if only briefly with a smile that says "I am so happy to see you!" (imagine if you'd never been looked at that way, or at least not in a long while, like this man probably experienced, and suddenly it happened again), and puts himself that much closer to working with God to win hearts (not that he's the only Pope to have done so). I love that about him. 
Stu Jordan • a month ago Papa is clearly attempting to stress that aspect and that is certainly needed. (Though I think his predecessors did that just as much). But setting such an example is not the only thing that people look for from the Pope. Many want (and need) stability especially in a World that seems to be rapidly changing and not necessarily for the better. In the great scheme of things, is that anything new? Certainly not but it is “new” to the people who are living in it right here and now. I think those people (of which I would include almost everyone) want clarity and reinforcement of Church teaching. They want to see the Church as the bulwark of Truth against an ominous tide. I’m not saying for one bit that Papa is anything but a “loyal son” to the Church. But there is pastoral need out there for another segment of the Church that needs his attention as well and I don’t believe it has to be an “either/or” sort of thing.
......Papa Francis, Papa Francis Aleppe.......Papé Satàn, Papé Satàn Aleppe....just sayin'

Pay Attention!

Demon Pazuzu 
“In the year 1864, Lucifer together with a large number of demons will be unloosed from hell; they will put an end to faith little by little, even in those dedicated to God. They will blind them in such a way, that, unless they are blessed with a special grace, these people will take on the spirit of these angels of hell; several religious institutions will lose all faith and will lose many souls.Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)  
Several will abandon the faith, and a great number of priests and members of religious orders will break away from the true religion; among these people there will even be bishops. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
