Yesterday, I called attention to the fact that “Francis,” via Querida Amazonia, approved of the ordination of married men for the conciliar church just as expected.
What was not necessarily expected, much less even noticed by the vast majority of commentators – including many “traditional” Catholic outlets – is the way in which he did so; namely, by effectively ratifying the Synod’s Final Document in its fullness. That text includes a call, among other things, for the following:
…to ordain as priests suitable and respected men of the community with a legitimately constituted and stable family, who have had a fruitful permanent diaconate and receive an adequate formation for the priesthood…[Emphasis added]
This means that Francis has given the green light to the bishops of Amazonia to begin forming and treating “permanent deacons” in exactly the same way that the conciliar church presently treats “transitional deacons.”
As such, one can be certain that those bishops will begin routinely “ordaining as priests” married men in the not too distant future. From there, one can be certain that this practice will spread, “in order to sustain the life of the Christian community,” throughout the conciliar church.
Yes, but we can thank the good Lord, the terminally naïve will declare, that he didn’t set in motion the ordination of females to the diaconate, much less to the priesthood!
Oh, really? Remember who we’re dealing with here.
“For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places.” (Ephesians 6:12)
The diabolical operation that has been unfolding over the last half-a-dozen or so decades is being led by Satan, a fallen angel whose cunning and intelligence far exceeds our own, and he’s forever playing the long game. So too are his earthly accomplices.
At this, I call your attention to a post that was published in this space back in October:
To briefly recap its contents:
Vatican News reported that, with the encouragement of Francis, individuals are being accepted into a formation program that has been underway in Amazonia since November 2017, focused on “ministries that Deacons perform in order to move toward being ordained as Deacons.”
For the report, Vatican News spoke with Bishop Wilmar Santin, who is responsible for “an area that covers 175 thousand square km” in the Amazon. According to Santin, the program’s first class includes “20 men and 4 women,” but it has since grown to include a total of forty-eight persons; the total number of women among them not being specified.
NB: Under discussion is a formation process for future deacons that includes at least four women and very likely more!
The day before Vatican News reported on the Amazonian diaconate formation program, Edward Pentin of National Catholic Register published a report stating:
One of the key figures behind the Pan-Amazon Synod’s working document [Bishop Erwin Kräutler, who worked for years in the same area as Bishop Santin] admitted Wednesday that he supports the ordination of women as priests and that he sees this month’s meeting as one possible step towards achieving that goal.
One possible step…
OK, so let’s follow the steps that have since come into focus to see where they might possibly lead:
– One of the authors of the Instrumentum Laboris for the Amazonian Synod is a bishop who plainly favors the ordination of females to the priesthood. As observed by writer Thomas Ascik at Crisis Magazine:
In the only passage where the word “ordination” appears, the Instrumentum goes on to advocate the “possibility” of the “priestly ordination” of married “older people” (in the Spanish version, personas; in the French, personnes; the word “men” is not used in any language) “for the most remote areas.”
– The Synod’s Final Document very specifically calls for conferring priestly ordination upon those “who have had a fruitful permanent diaconate.”
– With the publication of Querida Amazonia, Francis has unequivocally put his stamp of approval upon the above-cited Final Document, making it plain to the bishops of that region – men like Erwin Kräutler and Wilmar Santin – that they now have the green light to move forward with the plans and proposals that are presently in place.
– In the meantime, a diaconate formation program has already been underway in the Amazon since 2017, which, according to the official news agency of the Unholy See, includes at least four women.
For those with eyes to see and the will to use them, the long game plan is on the table.
