Bogota is the perfect place for hundreds of bishops from North and South America to meet because FrancisChurch is a liberation theology mess, and Obama is a Castroite, banana republic dictator.
Can men like these look around them and see what they’ve laid waste? No. They only see their palaces and servants. They only hear their own vapid words.
ROME- In a new video message, Pope Francis calls bishops from North, Central, and South America to remember that mercy is not a “theory to brandish,” not an ideology or “empty talk,” but a summons to remember one’s own sin.
Mercy is not mercy, no. It’s a call from somewhere to remember our own sin.
“[Mercy] is not a theory to brandish so that our condescension can be applauded, but rather a history of sin to be remembered. Which sin? Ours, mine and yours,” the pope said in the message, released by the Vatican on Saturday.
Mercy is a history of our sin, not a stuck-up theory.
Despite his own conceit, Francis has a contempt for those who are in any way superior. But the human race varies. We all have different gifts. Sometimes we’re even gifted with painful, humbling situations. Some people are less sinful and more virtuous. Some have given much and received much in return. Some people are materially gifted. Some spiritually. Some both.
Do you know who else has hatred for the superior? Satan. That’s why he’s a radical, rebellious, and ready to overturn good order.
He said mercy is also “a love to be praised. Which love? The love of God, who has shown me mercy,” Francis said.
Mercy is everything, everything ‘the Francis’ says it is. In this case it’s praise for God since he forgave my sins, the sins that we all have regardless of who, what, or when, regardless of course correction or repentance. Why repent when it’s arrogant not to have sins? Why repent when mercy means I should remember my sins, their history, and never forget them?
Remembering “our sin and not our alleged merits” and being amazed by God’s mercy, the pope said, “is a sure message, sound teaching, and never empty talk.”
Remembering one’s sins so as to avoid them in the future, and humbly declining to dwell on one’s merits, particularly if they’re only ‘alleged’, are good practices, but somehow this strikes me as ‘an unsure message, unsound teaching, and always empty talk.’
Communists don’t believe in merit. For them merit is only alleged. People are paid based on merit and that’s unequal, see. The merit of Christ won salvation for us. Our corresponding, cooperating merit will, please God, help win our own. But winning or earning anything is evil to FrancisRadicals. We must only sit in our sins and savor them, not begging God for mercy, but thanking Him for the mercy we already got, and never attempting to do something which might add to our ‘alleged merit.’
The pope also said that one becomes scandalized when “spiritual Alzheimer” sets in: “when we forget how the Lord has treated us, when we begin to judge and divide people up.”
This judging of others, Francis said, leads to a fragmentation of society and the community, creating groups of “good and bad, saints and sinners.” That, in turn, means forgetting the “richest reality and the clearest teaching: Though we are all sinners, the Lord has unfailingly treated us with mercy.”
A man ‘sick with power’, the Argentine Nuncio called Cardinal Bergoglio. There can be no good or bad groups? What if you have somehow assembled ten good men? Is that not a good group? What if eight holy women pray the Rosary after Mass? Am I evil if I judge them to be relatively good? What about ISIS?
What is the Church Militant if we can make no judgment on the ‘merits’ of that group?
All of us being hopeless sinners, unable to reform, and papered-over by Christ, is the teaching of the nefarious megalomaniac and FrancisIdol, Martin Luther.
Pope Francis’ video was more than 30-minutes long, recorded for a gathering taking place in Colombia, with over 15 cardinals and 120 bishops, together with priests and laity. In total, 22 countries are participating.
Called “The Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy on the American Continent,” the meeting is organized by CAL, the Vatican’s Commission for Latin America and CELAM, the conference of Catholic bishops from Latin America and the Caribbean, together with the bishops’ conferences of the United States and Canada.
Columbia is the country that just put FARC communist guerilla killers in it’s parliament as part of a Church-negotiated deal in Havana.
Layman Guzman Carriquiry, one of Francis’ closest collaborators and vice-president of CAL, told Crux that the participation of bishops from the three Americas is a continuation of Pope John Paul II’s “prophetic vision” of holding a Synod of Bishops for America in 1997.
John Paul II would have shut down this event in two seconds flat. He was a Catholic, with only a warning and a wagging finger for men like pro-rebel FrancisSaint, Oscar Romero.
The event began on Saturday with Francis’ video, together with opening remarks by Canadian Cardinal Marc Oullet, prefect of the Vatican’s Congregation for Bishops and president of CAL, and Colombia’s Cardinal Rubén Salazar Gómez, host and president of CELAM.
Other speakers throughout the weekend include Italian Archbishop Rino Fisichella, President of the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization, the Vatican office organizing the Jubilee of Mercy, and Los Angeles’ Archbishop Jose H. Gomez.
Francis’ henchman Rino Fisichella is the prelate who recommended mercifully aborting the baby of a young girl from Recife, Brazil in 2009.
It’s nice to see the local contingent dragged down to what is now the heart of the Church. It’s appropriate. When they’re through getting what they want politically from the United States, Bogota will seem like paradise in comparison.
Although in the video the pope called the gathering a “celebration,” it’s being styled as an “event” rather than a conference, because in between addresses the over 400 participants will visit slums, prisons, charitable projects, and other “Works of Mercy” in Bogotá.
Oh, that was close. Someone almost found out they were celebrating when they were supposed to be acting merciful to those poor. How proud and foolish do you have to become to think strolling through a slum, in between pompous panels and break-out sessions at your five star hotel, makes you somehow ‘good’? How long has it been since one of these men actually did something helpful or difficult? How many faithless consecrations do they make in a state of sin? Why do they rule over our Church?
