In September 2013, Pope Francis shocked the world by sending a letter to Eugenio Scalfari, publisher of the liberal Italian journal, La Repubblica, in response to questions the atheist journalist had raised in one of his editorials.
(Embarrassing for its lack of Catholic character, the Holy Father’s letter is available in seven languages on the Holy See website.)
Is it too much to imagine that Pope Francis might somehow catch wind of the following list of questions and perhaps deign to offer some answers?
Sure, but given that we have a pope who, in addition to sending letters-to-the-editors of secular newspapers, has also been known to place surprise telephone calls to transsexuals and adulterers, one never knows…
Dear Pope Francis,
Why, immediately upon assuming the throne of St. Peter, did you eschew all manner of things papal?
Why, on the first full day of your pontificate, did you deliberately refrain from making the sign of the Cross before a large gathering assembled in Paul VI Hall?
Why do you struggle to refer to yourself as pope?
Why do you consistently denigrate those who love the traditional Mass?
Why did you place a beach ball on the High Altar at Santa Maria Maggiore?
Why do you belittle those who seek clarity of doctrine?
Why do you so often engage in behavior well beneath the dignity of your office, like wearing a clown nose and posing for selfies?
Why did you dismantle the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate; a thriving religious order?
Why do you speak of the Qur’an as if it is comparable to Sacred Scripture?
Why do you encourage Muslims, Jews and heretics to remain in their error?
Why do you bow your head to receive the “blessing” of heretic laymen posing as clerics?
Why do you consider persuading those outside the Catholic Church to enter her “solemn nonsense?”
Why do you believe that making a mess in the Church is virtuous?
Why have you appointed so many dissenting clerics to important positions?
Why do you think that it’s possible to imagine a Resurrection that is “more majestic than the real one?”
Why are you willing to join heretics in celebrating the protestant revolt?
Why do you speak of Christian unity as if it doesn’t presently exist in the Catholic Church alone?
Why don’t you consider it a grave offense against Christ to proclaim that man is “king of the universe?”
Why were you silent on Ireland’s referendum on “same-sex marriage” prior to the vote?
Why are you convening a Synod of Bishops to discuss possible changes to immutable things?
Of course, many more questions of a similar sort could be asked of Pope Francis. Surely, you readers can come up with plenty of them right off the top of your head. In fact, it may be interesting to read those questions if you care to post them below.
In the end, however, all of them will be asking one and the same question; one directly related to the contents of yesterday’s post:
Why do you hate the Catholic faith so much?
Sound questions that will remain UNANSWERED as his agenda is to make a mockery of the Faith, and it is working.
Jorge Bergoglio, for me personally, has been a blessing. If Ratzinger had remained “pope” there is no doubt in my mind that I would have continued to remain ignorant to the reality of the false vatican 2 religion. Not even three years ago I was your typical, ignorant, go-with-the-flow, “Catholic”. Presently though….thanks mostly to Jorge’s antics and a LOT of reading….I am able to see that he isnt actually a pox on Catholicism but rather a “SAINT” of the vatican 2 “reformation”. For me at least, once I came to the logical conclusion that this v2 “reformation” and all of its adherents were in no way a part of Catholicism, things got really simple really quickly.
rich–you certainly do have a point. Catholics who remain in the N. O. mess are like the frog simmering in boiling water. Perhaps, Our Lord is using Bergoglio to “turn up the heat” so the frog will wake up from his reverie and jump out before it is too late.
As for the question, why does Bergoglio hate the Catholic Church so much: Let us not forget the Prince of the World hates the Church too!
Yes….and I was merrily simmering along for many years.
It is clear that he is continuing what he has been doing for decades – destroying the Faith and morals of all Catholics, from bishops down. It is simply not rational to continue to deny what is patent – there is no way to exculpate the Pope. Lord, have mercy.
Why did you find it funny to stop and pull apart the hands of the altar boy you were passing by in the Vatican? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QgP0YaOLT4
What did you mean when you told the cardinals they would be sorry for electing you pope?
Are you going to hear Raul Castro’s confession when you visit Cuba in September? Will you tell him to publicly renounce Satan as part of his reversion?
Why have you not publicly called out John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, and Joe Biden (among countless other prominent fake Catholics), for the sake of their immortal souls, for their evil stance on the murder of innocent babies?
Why oh why Pope Francis did you say that we need not “be like rabbits” and that “there are so many ways out”? Will you teach me the many gymnastics I can do in order to thrawt God’s order for conjugal intercourse through the false teachings on NFP that separate the primary purpose of procreation from its secondary purpose unity and goes against the teaching of the Catholic Church, Casti Connubii and natural law but stays in line with Paul VI’s Humanae Vitae so that I don’t exceed the suggested “three is enough”?
Question: Do you believe Adam and Eve were each born of a sub-human primate?
It was clear that he disapproved of the objectively pious and traditional form of reverence, correctly used by the altar boy. This is a pope who refuses to bend his knee before the Blessed Sacrament, even when exposed, even at the most holy consecration. Lord, have mercy on us.
“stop obsessing” about the legalised systematic slaughter of innocent defenceless babies – it’s not nice, especially as most people including our “esteemed brothers and sisters” of heretical organisations like and approve of same.
“Sub-human” is a term with false premises.
Ah, yes….I forgot that we shouldnt be “obsessing” over things like abortion, gay marriage and contraception. Thank you for this reminder.
rich ditto. my2cents bravo!
QUESTIONS FOR POPE FRANCIS:
Why do we seldom hear your many quotes that might even be acceptable to readers of this blog?
QUOTES BY POPE FRANCIS
1)Every child that isn’t born, but is unjustly condemned to be aborted, has the face of Jesus Christ, has the face of the Lord.
2)Jesus fights the devil: first criterion. Second criterion: he who is not with Jesus is against Jesus. There are no attitudes in the middle. Third criterion: vigilance over our hearts because the devil is astute. He is never cast out forever. It will only be so on the last day.”
3) “Faith is not a light which scatters all our darkness, but a lamp which guides our steps in the night and suffices for the journey. To those who suffer, God does not provide arguments which explain everything; rather, his response is that of an accompanying presence, a history of goodness which touches every story of suffering and opens up a ray of light.” (“Lumen Fidei,” June 29, 2013).
4)The perfect family doesn’t exist, nor is there a perfect husband or a perfect wife, and let’s not talk about the perfect mother-in-law! It’s just us sinners.” A healthy family life requires frequent use of three phrases: “May I? Thank you, and I’m sorry” and “never, never, never end the day without making peace.” (Meeting with engaged couples, Feb. 14, 2014).
5)Jesus’ three questions to Peter about love are followed by three commands: feed my lambs, feed my sheep. Let us never forget that authentic power is service, and that the Pope too, when exercising power, must enter ever more fully into that service which has its radiant culmination on the Cross. He must be inspired by the lowly, concrete and faithful service which marked Saint Joseph and, like him, he must open his arms to protect all of God’s people and embrace with tender affection the whole of humanity, especially the poorest, the weakest, the least important, those whom Matthew lists in the final judgment on love: the hungry, the thirsty, the stranger, the naked, the sick and those in prison (cf. Mt 25:31-46). Only those who serve with love are able to protect! (3/19/13)
Why you ask? Simple, because he’s not the pope that’s why. I’m shocked that anybody who calls themself a Catholic would recognize this rambling charlatan as anything other than a world class clown. Let’s face it, the Holy See has been vacant since the ascension into Heaven of Pope Pius XII on October 9, 1958. The false Vatican II sect that emerged from the subsequent Roncallian coup d’état has nothing to do with the Catholic Faith as taught throughout the ages by popes, saints and doctors. Let’s pray for God to give us a true pope so that once more the Barque of Peter has a captain to lead her through these turbulent waters. http://www.novusordowatch.org/wire/stuck-in-a-rut-bergoglio.htm
Is this the best you’ve got?
Louie, those list of questions collectively, and individually, are all valid matters which deserve to be answered.
The emphasis by various spokes people at the time was that the new Pope comes from a different, South American Catholic church, and that because of this the style of this papacy would be different in appearance to his predecessors papacies.
I try to give this Pope the benefit of my considerable doubt. I can do no more.
Some more direct questions from Dr kelly bowring “open letter to pope francis ” 12mins vid
What are the some of the “false” premises of the term “sub-human?”
I don’t think an Evolutionist would object to the term, since it simply means “less evolved.”
What do you think of substituting “non-human” for “sub-human?”
To rephrase the question to the Pope:
Do you believe Adam and Eve were each born of a non-human primate (not referring here to a Cardinal Kasper or Marx)?
Maybe it would be simpler to ask the Pope:
Were Adam and Eve born of a monkey?
Are you putting these quotes out there as good things Poor Francis has said? If that’s the case I could deconstruct each one and show how even these sweet sounding words foster his twisted take on the Faith, and the mission of the Church .
For example: “Every child that isn’t born, but is unjustly condemned to be aborted, has the face of Jesus Christ, has the face of the Lord.” This is not true – every unborn child, born child, man or woman does NOT have the Face of The Lord. We are created in the likeness of God, by virtue of the fact that we have a soul which can reason, and a will to act. We please God to the extent that we mirror Christ. Not quite the same thing.
Besides, the Catholic Church teaches that all unborn babies have dead souls until they receive the exorcism and sanctifying grace of Baptism.
When Poor Francis talks like that he’s just blathering the pablum he always blathers.
Another example: “Jesus’ three questions to Peter about love are followed by three commands: feed my lambs, feed my sheep. Let us never forget that authentic power is service, and that the Pope too, when exercising power, must enter ever more fully into that service which has its radiant culmination on the Cross.”
More socialist crap. Authentic power is NOT service. The Pope serves, yes, but he must exercise his real power by preserving and conserving, and handing down the One True Faith – NOT ‘by entering ever more fully into that service’….He leads us into service by teaching the first principles of Faith, Hope and Charity (as in love of God). Then WE help our neighbours. He twists fraternal charity into JOB-ONE, when in fact it is JOB-TWO.
When Poor Francis first began to speak in public it was obvious that everything he said had a twist to it. But for some his words sound great. The brainwashing of the past 60 years has been completed.
Because the term presupposes an essential relationship between human beings and certain animals. It presupposes the absurd and ideologically-bound Neo-Darwinian hypothesis of human beings having evolved from an ape.
Also, various statements that may in themselves be reconciled with the Faith and moral law, are of no relevance to the issue.
His objective stance on marriage and its meaning and purpose is not that of the Catholic Faith nor even the Natural Law.
“Style” that does not impinge on the Deposit of Faith and morals, nor discipline dependent thereon, is not in issue.
Mr Verrechio’s use of the term “hate”, is, as it ought to be, about the public stance, decisions and behaviours of the Pope, not occult or interior acts or tendencies or motivations, much less emotions.
Not really…the hour was late…I was just thinking that surely not everything he says is all bad…
Although my brain was in need of washing, I can also appreciate it having some good sense knocked into it as well
Thank you for the timely reminder to stay on topic…which I shall add to the mental note of thinking things through carefully before commenting
“Why do you struggle to refer to yourself as pope?”
This is the million dollar question…
Q for Bergoglio:
Why do you pretend to be a devotee of Our Lady and then suggest that She might have thought God lied to her at the foot of the cross?
As for the main question and all the variant, subsidiary questions, “my2cents” has already answered correctly:
“As for the question, why does Bergoglio hate the Catholic Church so much: Let us not forget the Prince of the World hates the Church too!”
Bishop of Rome Bergoglio is not a well meaning incompetent (he IS incompetent, but he doesn’t mean well).
Bishop of Rome Bergoglio is not simply a faithless, worldly narcissist who craves praise and attention.
Bishop of Rome Bergoglio is fully committed to the destruction of the One True Faith and the birthing of the one-world religion of The Enemy. Whether he is a knowing, fully conscious disciple of Satan or whether his incompetence, worldliness and narcissism simply make him a perfect, unknowing, tool in the plan is, actually, immaterial.
Dear Ever mindful, I’ve said it before, you are the holiest of us all. 🙂
Good work Barbara.
I admire your humility Evermindful.
The term “sub-human” doesn’t necessarily presuppose the Neo-Darwinian hypothesis, which, of course, is a false premise. On its face, the term simply means “less than human.” The question for the Pope is whether or not he believes Adam and Eve had less than human parents, a widespread belief among modernist Catholics that goes contrary to Sacred Scripture, Tradition, and the Magisterium. How would you phrase the question?
I am shocked that Novus Order Watched upholds Pius XII as spotless when he brought back Bugnini to help him with liturgical reforms, commenced new changes in the Easter Liturgy, endorsed the mordern leanings on evolution and endorsed NFP and contradicted Pius XI’s Casti Connubii. Although he did and said some things in line with Tradition he also did and said things that were modernistic and progressivist. He was a vacilating Pope.
Bergoglio’s actions speak louder than his words. Many examples could be stated, but for me it is his actions or more precisely his INACTION when the Holy Eucharist is profaned and desecrated at his mega-Masses (Manila!!). I sound like a broken record, but for me, that is the bottom line!!
I doubt he was spotless – what man, except, Our Lord, is?
I don’t know much about him, but I have read that he was very sick for several years before he died, almost at the mercy of Montini and Bugnini. Can you imagine being sick and having those two judeo-masonic vultures circling around you constantly? There was even a question as to whether he knew what he was signing when he signed certain documents. Apparently his personality was not that of a fighter as Pope Pius IX and St. Pius X were. He certainly was very holy and intelligent and whatever personal defects he might have had, he was most certainly a valid Pope and that is, for our purposes, a very important fact. The changes to the Easter liturgy forced on him by Bugnini were “experimental” and only temporarily promulgated. He certainly was not a modernist.
Why do you go forth and say something if you are persuaded it could be heresy?
Why do you say in “Evangelii Gaudium” that the Old Covenant is still valid?
Why did you hide your pectoral cross when meeting with mahometans and Jews?
What do you like about using the “crozier” cross in your gatherings?
Why do you receive congratulations from masonic lodges?
Why did you call mothers with big families “rabbits”?
Why don’t you apologize in public for that?
Shouldn’t it be a proof of the humility you profess and want for us?
Absolutely! Did you see the video posted by Indignus recently demonstrating how commonly tiny particles of the Real Presense are shed when hosts are handled? Imagine what happened when that “cardinal” in Austria “consecrated” loaves of ordinary bread and broke them up before passing around bowls of fragments?
Whenever you see these monstrosities, take great comfort. The NO consecration is invalid. Crumbs of bread are being scattered around – not the Body and Blood of Our Lord.
Why don’t you admit that your statement “Who am I to judge?” opened Pandora’s box and publicly declare that you were wrong for saying those explosive words?
Why don’t you just go back to Argentina and leave us alone????
Why did you tell the Czech bishops that devotion to the Old Rite was a “fashion” and not worthy of investigation?
Yes, Peter Lamb. However, the N.O. church still claims to believe in the Real Presence and this behavior is a scandal—We believe, but don’t care!!!
Yes, Rich. This papacy has been a great opportunity for all of us to have a slap-head moment, and say “hey, that can’t be right!” Golden opportunity to learn just what is right and be able to speak it when appropriate. Our Loving Father’s plan is mysterious indeed but He has given us these opportunities to strengthen our belief in The One True Faith.
Let’s get back to basics: Adam and Eve had NO parents.
Well, S_o_ Michael you can’t have it both ways. You say “Bishop of Rome Bergoglio is not simply a faithless, worldly narcissist who craves praise and attention…is fully committed to the destruction of the One True Faith…
Then you say he may not be aware that he is doing Satan’s bidding….and that this is immaterial. Poor Francis speaks in contradiction – let us be different. There is surely enough in what he is doing to analyze.
Again we are arguing about details when there are more important principles at stake.
In my opinion the sacrilege of allowing particles of The Body and Blood of Jesus to fall does not make the Mass invalid.
The Church teaches that if the priest says the words intending to do what the Church requires, the Mass is valid. This is NOT to say what he and his cohort do in total is good. There is grave sacrilege there.
In the same way, a sodomite priest in mortal sin, can still give Absolution if he intends to do what the Church requires in Confession.
Dear Crawler, yes, “less than human” has the same false premises. There is no animal that has any meaningful or relevant relationship to human beings. To say “sub human” or “less than human” implies that there is – that if they just had certain changes made to them they could be as humans. This is a false idea. An ape isn’t “subhuman” – it has no relationship to a human being. As for the question, you could say “non-human”, I suppose. God bless.
Thanks, Evermindful, Of course, not everything he says per se is bad. But one ought not follow a heretic no matter that they may say some things that appear good on their face.
The NO consecration IS valid (barring ludicrous abuses where the words of consecration may be completely altered or removed etc).
That is why profanation of the Holy Eucharist during the NO masses is such a big scandal and sacrilege.
Being a sede, I don’t know if you’ve heard too much, if at all, about Akita – but these apparitions are further prove of the validity of the NO consecration:
The supernatural events that occurred in Akita are undeniable. Furthermore, according to Fr Chazal (SSPX-MC), who often serves the faithful in Japan, poor Sr Sasagawa is undergoing a “house arrest” of sorts by the other NO nuns for her inclinations to tradition – in short, she is being persecuted, even in her old age – further proof that she is a true visionary and that the apparitions are indeed of heaven.
Another question (but one we are forbidden to ask seriously…) Why does God allow Francis to do what he does? One answer: chastisement.
If only we could see this horror as an opportunity for us to do penance by accepting this chastisement and understand that Our Loving Father intends it for our sanctification. Of course, we must fight each in his place and preach Truth, but first working out our salvation right here, right now, in this toxic environment is God’s Plan.
God has a Plan for Francis too. But when you are so loud and so persistent, and so proud that you have the answers, the small still Voice can’t be heard.
We might transfer our prayers forward for the Holy Pope who will come. He will need all of them as there is great persecution coming. Our Lady announced it.
Hope I didn’t appear abrupt. As a qualified lawyer, and having a chronic illness that means I have little mental energy, I have a tendency to keep it very short! God bless.
If the ordination of the priest saying mass is invalid, his consecration is invalid and the mass invalid, no matter his sincere intention.
The various invalid NO sacraments are rendered invalid through the use of altered sacramental forms.
A valid Priest in a state of sin, confects valid sacraments, providing form, matter and intention are correct.
Yes, the objective acts (including formal written statements) are unassailable. This is the objective “hatred” of which Mr Verrechio speaks.
I don’t know about Akita. Have these apparitions been approved by the Church? Of course there is a problem for me if you answer yes, – by the NO church. 🙂 Based on all the evidence, I have accepted the responsibility on my soul of my conclusion that VII, conciliar popes and NO religion are false, heretical and not Catholic. In short the whole mess is absolutely anathema. That’s my freely arrived at conclusion and I hang my fate on it. I’m not a great one for private apparitions/revelations, except ones approved by the Catholic Church before VII. So, Akita – let each decide for himself, I have no opinion on the matter.
I am basing my statement regarding the invalidity of various NO sacraments on the Sacramental Theology I have read, especially the writings of Patrick Henry Omlor and Fr. Rama Coomaraswamy. I haven’t got “Work of Human Hands” yet, but I suspect Fr. Cekada expounds on the subject.
I’m not decrying Akita because I know nothing about it, but just remember we have been warned about the evil one doing miracles in these times which will almost deceive even the Faithful.
Following online consultation with Lynda and Barbara in the comments above, here is a re-phrasing of my question to Pope Francis:
Did Adam and Eve have NO parents or non-human parents?
Note: “NO” in this case means, “No”, not “Novus Ordo.”
Let nothing of the truths that have been defined be lessened, nothing altered,nothing added, but let them be preserved intact in word and in meaning. Pope St. Leo the Great
OK, now I’m heading for the chop, but it seems appropriate to all the prayers uttered here for help in these times:
THIRTEEN TUESDAYS DEVOTION TO HONOR ST. ANTHONY
At St. Gertrude the Great, we try to keep up with all our saints, but there is one who needs no introduction to any Catholic in the world, for he is the “Universal Saint,” as Leo XIII said. Other saints are honored for this or that particular need. St. Anthony of Padua is invoked for ALL needs.
Many of us know St. Anthony as the finder of lost things, but he is so much more. He is the “Saint of Miracles.” Wherever we turn today, we see universal distress and disorder. Surely we should join together in honoring St. Anthony for all of our needs, spiritual and temporal alike.
This year, St. Anthony’s feast falls on Saturday, June 13, the very day on which he died in 1231. The following Tuesday at his burial in Padua, miracle upon miracle was worked and no one asked the aid of the saint without obtaining relief. Thus arose the custom of dedicating Tuesdays to St. Anthony, which popular piety has increased from the customary nine to thirteen in honor of the date of his death.
We invite you to join with us in our annual Thirteen Tuesdays Devotion to Honor St. Anthony. Send us your intentions to be placed at his shrine. You will be remembered in a Mass on the first of the Tuesdays, and will send you a holy card of St. Anthony, together with a piece of lily blessed on his feast.
You may send your intentions at any time during the summer, but we recommend that you participate from the very beginning.
Follow the devotions via our live 8:00 AM webcasts every Tuesday at this link.
Remember also: June 13, 12md rosary for right outcome of Supreme Court ruling on sodomitic “marriages.”
Have you watched the youtube video I linked above?
To answer your question, “yes” – the apparitions have been approved by the Church at both the diocesan level and at the Vatican by the CDF. Regardless whether you accept this Church approval or not, the supernatural occurrences remain a fact.
Moreover, there have been no bad fruits to emerge from the apparitions, quite the contrary. Apparently, the novus ordo nuns where sister Sasagawa used to reside would like to sweep the message under the rug, so to speak – another sign of the veracity and heavenly origin of the apparitions.
Does this sound to you anything other than a warning from heaven of the apostasy we are currently witnessing? :
“If men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the Bishops and the priests.
“The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see Cardinals opposing Cardinals, Bishops against other Bishops. The priests who venerate Me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres (other priests). Churches and altars will be sacked. The Church will be full of those who accept compromises, and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.
“The demon will be especially implacable against the souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of My sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will no longer be pardon for them.
“…Pray very much the prayers of the Rosary. I alone am able to still save you from the calamities which approach. Those who place their confidence in Me will be saved.”
October 13, 1973.
You say: “That’s my freely arrived at conclusion [sedevacantism] and I hang my fate on it.”
It’s one thing to hold the sedevacantist opinion and argue in favour of it, quite another to “hang your fate” on something which the church still has to declare formal judgment on.
I believe Pius XII was the first Pope to open the doors to modernism because of the above things I stated in my previous post. Was he a fullfledge modernist? I say does this really matter when it comes to damaging Church doctrine?
Starting at the end of your comment. Everything that I was taught before VII and much that I have read in the last few years has utterly convinced me that the NO church is not the Catholic Church, but a predicted Judeo-masonic attempt to subvert the Catholic Church. How can I wait for the Church to pronounce formal judgement on sede? Are you referring to the NO church? Not a hope in hell of them doing that! Where are the Catholic hierarchy who can do that? The Church is eclipsed as Our Lady said it would be. The usurpers occupy Rome. The only truly Catholic prelates we have left are the sede Bishops and they have declared sede correct and NO false. The Catholic Church of our fathers declares the NO church false and apostate in its immutable doctrine from Scripture, Tradition and Magisterium. I hear their voices in the defined Dogmas and read their words in infallible magisterial writings online. They loudly and clearly denounce the NO apostasy. That’s official enough for me. God has given me an intellect, eyes to see and ears to hear. I know the basic Catholic Faith; I can perceive by my intellect, see with my eyes and hear with my ears the lies of the NO church. When a train is bearing down upon me I don’t wait for a formal declaration by somebody, my common sense tells me to depart from the tracks pronto.
Yes, I watched the video. Seems pretty good to me. One little thing struck me: “Churches and altars will be desecrated” – as they are being indeed – by the NO. Well if that is the case, it is not saying much for the validity of NO mass and sacraments if they desecrate the altars, is it? I saw absolutely nothing else in the video even vaguely related to the validity of NO sacraments. This nun is being persecuted for being a traditionalist and that might have something to do with the reason Our Lady chose her and not a NO nun?If so, that also doesn’t look good for NO, or NO sacraments. I honestly can’t say I see anything in this video in support of the validity of NO sacraments. The theological arguments against their validity are much more compelling. Now my turn: Have you read Ottaviani, Omlor, Rama, or Cekada on the subject?
“… he brought back Bugnini to help him with liturgical reforms, commenced new changes in the Easter Liturgy, endorsed the mordern leanings on evolution and endorsed NFP and contradicted Pius XI’s Casti Connubii.”
Please can you cite specific reference sources to back up all of these allegations? I would be very interested to read them.
Thomas A Kempis on Divine Assistance
Thou must not judge according to thy present feeling, nor give thyself up in such manner to any trouble, from whencesoever it comes, nor take it so as if all hope were gone, of being delivered out of it.
Think not thyself forsaken, although for a time I have sent thee some tribulation, or withdrawn from thee the comfort which though desirest;
for this is the way to the kingdom of heaven.
Thanks Indignus. Good stuff! I’m printing it and sticking it on the wall. 🙂 🙂
Now de Maria there are no rude words in that sentence! 🙂
Besides reading Pius XII’s private letter to the Italian midwives and comparing that with Pius XI’s encyclical Casti Conubii I would suggest you read page 64 of Father Anthony Cekada’s “Work of Human Hands A Theological Critique of the Mass of Paul VI” and also read any of the chapters on Bugnini in this book. As for evolution I would suggest googling evolution and Pope Pius XII.
Please join with us in spirit tomorrow at 4 pm, rosary in Dublin City centre for reparation of offence against God by Irish people.
Thanks for this timely reminder of the Great Saint Anthony. This past April I had the privilege of visiting Padua and praying at his shrine there. He is revered all over the world.
We must not forget St. Joseph!!! He is patron of the Universal Church. The Racolta has a wonderful prayer to him asking him to keep us from error.
Barbara, where is the contradiction?
Question for Pope Francis:
Why did you tell the atheist writer Scalfari that when people go to hell their souls are obliterated? Why have you not corrected that heresy when Our Lord in Scripture says otherwise?
God bless you for listing all of the insanity of this lost Pope to remind people that he truly hates the Catholic faith. God bless you Louie:+)
Why do you bother wearing a white cassock and parading as if you are the Vicar of Christ when it is evident to any Catholic that you are Christ’s enemy? Answered my own question – because he is Christ’s enemy.
EM. The quotes you supply as ‘acceptable’ are simply more of the same modernist poison. They teach nothing of Christ’s truth, defends no one ounce of Christ’s teachings and encourages not on iota of work of the Catholic which is to believe in Christ and follow His directions. God does provide ‘arguments’ which explain everything we NEED to know. Bergoglio of the ‘doubt is a virtue’ brigade simply denies this in his unholy ‘magisterium’.
Much like the “Pope Francis Little Book of Insults” found on another great Catholic blog, I think another books is in order, listing all these (and many more) “Why” questions for the Pope. I’d love that and it could remain an open book to continue adding to practically as often as he opens his mouth on a daily basis.
