Cardinal Kasper’s presentation to the Consistory of Cardinals in February, wherein he proposed potential pathways for admitting the civilly divorced and “remarried” to Holy Communion, is anything but “profound and serene theology,” in spite of Pope Francis’ glowing evaluation.
This episode fell from the radar screen very quickly, especially given the more recent dust-up over the pope’s telephone call to the Argentinian woman.
On the one hand, this is rather shocking given its utterly scandalous nature; on the other, it’s indicative of the degree to which we’ve grown numb to the many assaults against our Holy Faith that have taken place at the hands of the Roman Pontiffs in recent decades.
Can anyone imagine, Pope Pius X, a genuine Saint, publicly congratulating the architect of a plot to undermine the dogmas of the faith, and this before the Consistory of Cardinals? I digress…
As it is, Cardinal Kasper and his supporters (including perhaps even the pope himself) are no doubt lobbying the bishops of the world to solicit their support in preparation for the upcoming Synod. Of this one can be reasonably sure.
Well, it occurs to me that it would make logical sense for Kasper and his Merry Band of Ecclesial Saboteurs to beg the intercession of Saint John Paul II in the process. In fact, they might even do well to consider appointing the Polish pope Patron Saint of the effort to invite adulterers to Holy Communion. Why not?
After all, Karol Wojtyla as pope had numerous public and scandalous dalliances with those other than his rightful and legitimate Bride, and that didn’t stand in the way of him being formally recognized via canonization as one among the Communion of Saints.
Surely, therefore, his intercession will be efficacious in the matter of urging the Church to likewise overlook the adulterous behavior of other, far less public figures, relative to Holy Communion, no?
that about sums up the ‘worth’ of the ‘canonizations’. they had to ‘elevate’ someone to whom they coud ‘pray’ whilst promulgating their betrayals. and let’s face it – jpii was and remains an anti-catholic scandal. once again, it will be despite the vii popes that people will find the Faith – a ridiculous situation, but not surprising.
Ecclesial Saboteurs – sounds like a new wave band, but wait, that’s exactly what they are.
p.s. good video:
Fr. is right. The average Catholic would care more about the rules of their favourite sport being changed than the perversion of the Salvific Sacraments and Teachings of Holy Mother Church. Our Mother is weeping, the vii popes don’t care, and for the most part niether do the clergy or the laity.
quotes from the above video (warning resistance sspx so if that’s touchy watch at your own discretion):
St Catherine of Siena, ‘cry from the housetops, because many go to hell because of silence.’
the pope ‘is not the successor of Christ’, but His vicar (he cannot invent, change or comprimise anything). VII LG, basically says the ‘bishop and the Pope are ‘oracles’ of the Holy Ghost, ‘guiding the Church right now’. I never heard that one before. No wonder they think they are above Holy Tradition, indeed, Holy Mother Church.
These “canonizations” are pretty much just another variation on Hollywood’s Oscars: in this case, ecumaniac disoriented revolutionaries handing out rewards to their fellow revolutionaries, to bolster their own narcissistic prestige, to legitimize their horrific novelties and to justify their ongoing destruction of the Church.
The canonization process is corrupted, the clergy administering the process are spiritually corrupted, and the subjects of their idolatrous adulation were spiritually corrupted. What all this amounts to is worshipping a golden calf.
Fortunately, there were some Cardinals in February’s Consistory who did openly protest Cardinal Kaspar’s proposal for admitting divorced and remarried Catholics to Holy Communion. Whether or not they can be later be effective in stopping heretical changes to take place remains to be seen.
I think that these canonizations may have been timed to precede changes in doctrine or traditional teaching. They may pave the way for the Modernists to do what Modernists do best – sow confusion and scandal as they attempt to change Church teaching.
Pope St. Pius X, pray for the Church!
Great video. I’m a little confused and concerned where the Father alludes to the direction of Bishop Fellay and the Vatican. I was unaware of any current talks and cannot find references to them.
In these times, take heart and remain rooted in the Truth undefiled.
Yeah – in all Bishop Fellay’s writings and speeches I’ve only ever heard good sound Catholic sense from him. I guess the ‘politics of dancing’ beats on everywhere.
I agree. Not only is it an affront to my Faith to be ‘required’ to believe that two giant Judas Iscariots are models of Christ, but anyone with a wit of Catholic history must KNOW these men turned their backs on Christ and His Church and preferred the world. the average pew-punter prior to vii demanded something of their popes – orthodoxy and fidelity to Christ and His flock. Nowadays the popes demand unorthodoxy and fidelity to the latest appalling Bishop of Rome in spite of the Faith and Church.
Thanks for the link: the True Faith is the antidote for the fake faith.
on that score, this is the correct response to the Saboteurs:
the Saboteurs don’t believe in Truth, and don’t care for those who seek It.
Salvemur, that was one of Mundabor’s finest. It made a few scales fall from my eyes, I must admit.
About the above photo of Fr. Barron: he’s got a very ‘contented’ look on his face. I want to say ‘smug’ actually, but perhaps that would be judgmental.
I meant the photo on the ‘Trippin with Fr. Barron’ article, in case that wasn’t clear….
I agree. We have been taught to think there is no such thing as scandal, no such thing a ‘sin’, in fact as if nothing offends an All Good, Perfect God. If there are any priests out there in the conciliar Church that would even dare to present the Truth as present in mudabor’s piece, they’re doing an excellent job of hiding that daring.
