According to Vatican Radio, Francis has sent a message to participants of a conference taking place in Rome on the theme “Pope Paul VI, the pope of modernity.”
A more fitting theme would be “Pope Paul VI, the pope of Modernism.”
After all, this is the pope who unceremoniously abrogated the “Oath Against Modernism;” his reasons for doing so being obvious enough. (HINT: He’s the pope who signed off on each of the sixteen Council documents.)
In his message to the conference, Francis made note of the fact that 2017 marks the 50th anniversary year of the encyclical of Paul VI, Popolorum Progressio, which he said sought to be a “solemn appeal for concerted action in favor of integral human development”.
Integral human development…
Truly, this is nothing more than a slogan, and a fitting one at that, for the architects of the City of Man who have no interest in defending the Sovereign Rights of Christ the King.
And from where did it come?
It may surprise some readers to discover that it did not originate with Francis, who by way of motu proprio established the Dicastery for Integral Human Development in August of 2016. More surprising still, perhaps, is that the phrase wasn’t first invoked in Rome by Paul VI either.
It was actually Benedict XVI who in 2009 entered the dreadful buzz phrase into modernist Rome’s playbook with his encyclical, Caritas in Veritate – the full name of which is “Integral Human Development in Charity and Truth.”
When comparing Caritas in Veritate to Populorum Progression, the former may appear more defensible, but appearances can be deceiving. In truth, it is every bit as man-centered as the latter, in spite of its somewhat more Catholic tone.
In my reading of Benedict’s text, one of its main contributions to the unapologetic humanism being practiced by Francis today lies in the following:
The Christian revelation of the unity of the human race presupposes a metaphysical interpretation of the “humanum” in which relationality is an essential element. Other cultures and religions teach brotherhood and peace and are therefore of enormous importance to integral human development. (Caritas in Veritate 55)
NB: He does not say that the Holy Catholic faith is “of enormous importance…;” rather, he speaks of “other religions.”
Here one sees reflected precisely the attitude of Francis (and indeed all of the post-conciliar popes); namely, that “religion” in general is good for man and society regardless of whether or not it is true – a claim that only the Holy Catholic faith can make.
Benedict goes on, however, to add a word of caution:
Some religious and cultural attitudes, however, do not fully embrace the principle of love and truth and therefore end up retarding or even obstructing authentic human development. There are certain religious cultures in the world today that do not oblige men and women to live in communion but rather cut them off from one other in a search for individual well-being, limited to the gratification of psychological desires. (ibid.)
In other words, not all religions are good. Sounds rather Catholic, no?
If one pays close attention, however, it is clear that what Benedict is actually saying is that in order for a religion to contribute to “integral human development,” the only thing that is required is that it obliges men to live in communion with one another.
No room for Christ the King there!
Be that as it may, Francis did well to cite Populorum Progressio as a solemn appeal for “integral human development” as he understands it and wishes to promote it.
In fact, when reading the text, one understands why Francis called Paul VI “the Great Light” of his formative seminary years; truly, it seems that he imagines himself walking in Paul’s footsteps more so than any of the other conciliar popes.
For instance, Paul VI writes:
Before the close of the Second Vatican Council, providential circumstances allowed Us to address the United Nations and to plead the case of the impoverished nations before that distinguished assembly. (Populorum Progressio 4)
Francis’ own esteem for the UN is well known, and Paul is the first pope ever to address that “distinguished assembly.” (Note, however, that Benedict XVI also saw fit to pay homage to the United Nations in Caritas in Veritate.)
Later in the text, Paul VI quotes Fr. Louis-Joseph Lebret, O.P., whom he recruited to help draft Gaudium et Spes.
In so doing, Paul provides what one cannot but recognize as the mission statement by which the Bergoglian regime labors to promote integral human development in our day:
We cannot allow economics to be separated from human realities, nor development from the civilization in which it takes place. What counts for us is man—each individual man, each human group, and humanity as a whole. (ibid., article 14)
“What counts for us is man.”
Truly, the mindset and mission of modernist Rome, as epitomized by the words and deeds of Jorge Bergoglio, can be no better stated.
It is for this reason that the Church in the eyes of such men is no more glorious than that of a social sciences think tank as described so eloquently by Paul VI:
She [the Church] offers man her distinctive contribution: a global perspective on man and human realities. (ibid., article 13)
And here you thought that the Church’s distinctive contribution to mankind is salvation!
As has been written many times in this space, Francis is most certainly a problem, and a major one at that. He isn’t, however, the problem. Rather, he is simply carrying on the task of those who came before him; namely, that of implementing the Second Vatican Council.
If anyone has any doubt about this, a review of Popolorum Progressio alone should suffice to remove it.
You quote the Luciferian, Joseph Ratzinger as BXVI, saying this in his ,”Caritas in Veritate”:
“The Christian revelation of the unity of the human race presupposes a metaphysical interpretation of the “humanum” in which relationality is an essential element. Other cultures and religions teach brotherhood and peace and are therefore of enormous importance to integral human development. (Caritas in Veritate 55)”.
Let this stand as a pristine, existential commentary of Ratzinger’s on so called, “Personalism”, which as an instrument of Hegel’s dialectic of synthesis, finds its wellspring in the diabolical philosophy of “Phenomenonology”, held so near and dear to the hearts of Lucifer’s slaves, Wojtyla and Ratzinger, as the false popes, “JPII and BXVI”, of the church of the Antichrist.
You then go on to both say and to quote, “Caritas in Veritate”, again as quoting you,
“Benedict goes on, however, to add a word of caution:
Some religious and cultural attitudes, however, do not fully embrace the principle of love and truth…”
The Luciferian Joseph Ratzinger, as so called pope BXVI, there utterly as actually reduces, profanes, and blasphemes the Son of God made Man, as Almighty God Himself, down to the objective nature of the creaturely context of, “PRINCIPLE”, “…of love and truth…”, when Christ Jesus our Lord and Redeemer of the cosmos commanded Himself—–TO BE——THE TRUTH as Truth and Love Himself, as Deus Caritas Est. Need we anymore knowledge in the epistemological sense to KNOW who Ratzinger is, as Christ our Lord commanded: “You will know them by their fruits”. I pray this reality in Truth, which is hard, helps. In caritas.
Card. Ratzinger: “The text [of the Vatican II documents, especially Gaudium et spes] serves as a counter-syllabus and, as such, represents, on the part of the Church, an attempt at an official reconciliation with the new era inaugurated in 1789. St. Pius X’s Oath against Modernism mandate was not rescinded until 1967, more than a year after the closing of the Vatican II.
Each Bishop at Vatican II swore the Oath against Modernism; all broke it !!!!
And we are to believe the Holy Spirit guided Vat 2? lol I have a bridge to sell you in Bklyn !!!!
Its not a joke. The Luciferian Light PP6 was is the bergoglian moth attractant straight from the “shinning outer darkness” we see their Roll Out of the Program hatched by Adam Weishaupt and others. Like locusts stirring from their dusty dens Pupet Man Jorge will parade their wares for the gullible and mostly the disinterested.
So much for the “pleading PP6” achievements at UN NY. There’s 10 times more poverty now than then. So much integral human suffering.
Loved your Pirate ship post with crew under the real Black beard at the helm.
The only flag missing was Isis coloyrs but theres time! You are imptoving Louie. Quality stuff very disturbing neverthe less. Deo gratias.
“We cannot allow economics to be separated from human realities,…”
Then go after the Jewish owned central banks. If these Popes of “great light” really cared about the poor they would be writing encyclicals against usury.
The treatment of Pope Francis, even as bad as he may or may not be is no different than the liberal media’s lies and half -truths about Trump because their goal as journalist’s, unfortunately, is not to tell the full and complete truth about whats going on so people are better educated about what’s been happening last 50 years but to make both Trump and Francis look as bad as they possibly can to win as many people on their side as possible. Here’s a perfect example in this article of a reporter critically writing about Pope Francis’s relationship with U.N: believe it or not she writes “this NEW alliance, UNTHINKABLE under the pontificates of St. John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI” smh https://catholicismpure.wordpress.com/2017/03/01/catholics-must-resist-pope-francis-alliance-with-pro-abortion-united-nations-catholic-coalition/
Like I said this is just a flat out lie:http://www.traditioninaction.org/RevolutionPhotos/A254rcJPII_UN.html
And even when they do admit there was problems before Pope Francis unlike with blaming Pope Francis 100%, suddenly they’ll blame only VII (idiotically blaming a piece of paper document just like liberals blame guns for killing people) as if the previous Popes had very little to do with the destruction or they just continuosly come up with new ridiculous excuses to downplay previous 4 Popes role in destroying the Church by saying things like they were only “PART of the problem”, “just too trustworthy”, “naive” “surrounded by bad bishops who had gun to their head”, the list of excuses just goes on and on. In the mean time NOBODY, and that includes Pope Francis “the worst”, had more to do with spreading the 3 deadly VII errors of ecumenism, religious liberty, and collegiality than last 4 popes.
Oh, and thats another trick they also never specifically name what the so-called “spirit of VII” errors” were (ecumenism, religious liberty, and collegiality) because as stated before the 4 biggest promoters of these errors that have already destroyed the Church are the Popes that Pope Francis is supposed to be obeying and they don’t want it to become too obvious that 99% of the time he already is.
And here’s more disengenuity from TINO’s. One of tino’s “courageous” heros these days is this guy Josef Seifert who also wrote this article titled “The Persecution of Orthodoxy” apparently pointing out how unfairly Pope Francis is persecuting him and all those holding fast to PJPII’s (one of Seiferts close friends and associate) “orthodox” teachings. He also blames the blind support of some catholics towards Pope Francis on papalotry.
Most reading this probably understand how ridiculous this is but for those who don’t: 1) Probably nobody in the history of Church was ignored, persecuted, or treated more unfairly (EXCOMMUNICATED) by a Pope as Archbishop LeFebvre was by the poor “persecuted” Seifert’s close friend and hero Pope John Paul II. 2) This injust treatment to Arch. LeFebvre happened mainly because it was people like Seifert, dubia cardinals, neocon bishops, etc. who were already busy idolizing and committing the sin of papalotry ( of which Seifert accuses the P. Francis cult of) with their hero and living saint Pope John Paul II “The Great” so obviously they would have to side with PJPII and like everyone else make “bad” Archbishop LeFebvre look like he was being fairly ignored, persecuted and “excommunicated” by their hero PJPII. Hopefully, someday Seifert or his TINO followers will come to their senses and write an article titled “The Persecution of Orthodoxy” but this time be about possibly the most unfair persecution in Church history of Archbishop LeFebvre and authentic orthodoxy by Pope John Paul II and his friends/supporters like neocats Seifert himself. https://www.firstthings.com/web-exclusives/2017/10/the-persecution-of-orthodoxy
Only ‘truth’ will set us free!
Yep, I’m not even sspx or sure everything Arch. LeFebvre did was 100 % correctly done in the right way, heck, I even attend new Mass if that’s only Mass available but I definitely feel like Arch. LeFebvre is getting the short end of the stick lately at the very least in an indirect way thanks to Pope Francis effect.
If I were to define what a trad was in one word it would be Arch. LeFebvre but definitely not Card. Burke, Arch. Schneider, Seifert, etc. who all of them still to this day defend and promote PJPII along with his disastrous VII errors which are the same exact errors that Arch. LeFebvre fought against and was known as a Trad because of his fighting against . So how all these VII supporters are suddenly now considered trads or orthodox I have no idea. But I suspect it’s due to the so-called Francis Effect.
Money is not made Round to go round. The bankers make it Flat to stack.
The Prince of this world having been enthroned in Rome & Charlotteville- ref: Fr Villa & others, has not got his minnions mopping up the last days resistance. You & me. Spiritually. Or thats their plan. There will be cate-cheese us(Swiss variety riddled with hoes) to write on the way to a mailorder clergy. Various states of clerical habitation will comply- eventually. The only Off Limits will be Tradition. So the inner darkness they cling to such as heresay, apostacy lukewarmedness and any other blasphemy on order, is their great hope for the Eternal Tent.
Jorge mentioned it recently. Mansions? No reference alluded to those as described by the of Lamb God in Holy Writ. How bizarre JMB’s conjuring tricks for those still dizzy from the intoxication of their wine of fornication.
Do the blind care about the gravity of the developing series of acts and actions?
I suppose out of sight out of mind for a few. What this site does is bare knuckle the locusts. It helps Pro Q and others cut to the chase within their capacities to look and learn abec tais-toi style.
I would hazard a guess its nearly all over…in the humanistic sence as far as tradition is concerned. Will the minions recant. ?
Our Holy Mother has other plans for us, fortunately. 3rd secret spelled it out. Its become clearer NOW. Released verbatum or not. The cats out of the bag. At the feet of the fans of Baphomet. See the cat symbol. Again Ref. Fr Villa & Dr Adessa great works on symbols and the infatuation they hold for false shepherds and hirelings.
His explanations on the masonic symbols and papal regalia are confirmation that the current elders of the people have capitulated Rome has lost it. Will He find it anywhere when He comes? Faith. Is this our Great Chastisement ..leading to the three days of Darkness.
The goal for us? For those few…a few… Final perseverance. Our Lady of Quito ora pro nobis.
….and as evidenced by the number of responses, only Louie V and his sockpuppets are posting here any more. Give it up before you become as ridiculous as Pope Gregory XVII (the Palmarian clown) – the only way you generate clicks any more is by asking the perverse yaoi fan-woman Engel to write more nonsense for you. You should just give up and go join your best friend MILO on his next “Dangerous Trad Catholic” tour.
Psalms 58, 83 and 109 to all of you enemies of God.
Your regular but juvenile prattle is worthy only of contempt and serves as a timely warning to all good, faithful Catholics that Lucifer has many stooges on sites like this in order to sow discord and disorientation. News flash! You have failed miserably!
The Freemasons/Luciferians have been trying to destroy our beautiful Catholic Church founded by Jesus Christ. ALL they needed was to infiltrate the Church and groom a Freemason Pope – which was John XXIII. He was the one who – for no reason but the fact that the Freemasons wanted it! – called Vatican II; when he contracted cancer they had Paul VI waiting in the wings to carry on their work of destruction. Paul VI’s mother’s gravestone has the Freemason’s set square etched in to it and Paul VI demanded that NO Christian symbol [even the cross] was to be used in his burial.
You latch on to the open defiance against the Pope by Lefebvre [although justified in hindsight was, nevertheless, very dangerous for the Church at that time] but ignore the fact that Francis – whose “guiding light” is Paul VI – is also a Globalist, Humanist menace to our Church………… and judging by Francis’ hideous , never ending stream of blasphemies and heretical statements and actions is not just an ADMIRER of Paul VI but a clone!
Why not spend your time reading the facts and stop wasting that said time in prattling like a challenged 7 year old? Your inability to rebut Louie’s FACTS shows that you are simply another less than credible religious anarchist.
Viva Cristo Rey! Our Lady of Good Counsel, pray for us. Veni Creator Spiritu
Only Christ is the Way, the TRUTH and the Light. Francis does not speak the truth.
Proof?……….. Christ never did and never would condone sin, let alone mortal sin; He would never blaspheme against His Heavenly Father by publicly stating that “Mother Earth created everything ; and SHE takes care of us!!!!”; He preached often about the Hell and Purgatory that Francis denies; stated firmly that when He comes again as Judge – His mercy will be based on Justice and He honors His Holy and Blessed Mother in like Francis who, on the fest of the Immaculate Conception held an light show on the façade of St Peter’s honoring ANIMALS.
Agreed 100%. The first part of the great chastisement is that God will withdraw His Grace from the Church as a direct result of the “Suicide of altering the Faith”.
Look at the last 50 years and the proof is there for all to see. The only people who SEE what happened – and see how things are now escalating at breakneck speed with Francis at the helm – are those who pray to the Holy Spirit for discernment. For us there is no doubt. Glory be to God the Father; the Son ; and the Holy Spirit. And may Our Blessed Lady keep us faithful and safe.
But apparently they have no qualms about sending souls to Hell! ……………..
