CHARLES SCICLUNA NEEDS REMINDING THAT THE VERY GATES OF HELL YAWN OPEN FOR HIM IF HE DOES NOT REPENT OF HIS PRESENT COURSE.

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?

Prelates World-Wide Pass Through Holy FrancisDoors In Meaningful New Ceremonies For Mercy’s Sake

FrancisRamblings are insane, but they aren’t designed to make sense.  They’re supposed to make people believe lies.  If I were a student of the history of Protestant sects or cults and their leaders, I’m sure I would find that Francis fits a type.  Luther was similar.  You have to be a master of spin and false dichotomy.

At Mass this morning Francis said:

“Hope is a Christian virtue that is a great gift from God and that allows us to see beyond problems, pain, difficulties, beyond our sins. It allows us to see the beauty of God”.

That sounds pretty good, until we get to the part where we can ‘see beyond our sins’ through the virtue of hope.  Francis is so determined to make people think their sins don’t matter.  Is hope a virtue that allows us to see the beauty of God?

No one can see the beauty of God, but a pure heart helps you appreciate beauty.  What Francis seems to be referring to sounds more like piety.  Oooops.  Did I say something rigid?

According to Vatican Radio, Pope Francis stressed this during his daily morning Mass at his residence Casa Santa Marta, underscoring that those who have hope have the freedom and strength to see beyond the bad times, as well as opens up horizons and gives us freedom.

Why are these liberals always opening things and looking off to some horizon somewhere else?  Why do they call careless license ‘freedom?’

Reflecting on today’s Gospel, in which the chief priests question Jesus and ask with which authority does He act, the Pope said: “They have no horizons, they are men who are locked in their calculations, they are slaves to their rigidity”

Do you know why the pope hates the word ‘calculations,’ because it sounds like money, like people who are careful with money, and people who have money.  Pope Francis hates money.  He’s above money.  You don’t need money when you float about on a spiritual cloud of higher knowledge, looking past your sins and off to that free horizon of hope.  You don’t need money when you go around greasing wheels, slapping backs, and turning screws either.  A contempt for money, its inherent justice, and the power it bestows is integral to the true church of Francis.

FrancisChurch isn’t about hope and mercy.  It’s about enemies and targets.  Enemy #1 is power.  Enemy #2 are Catholics.  Both enemies have something Francis wants.  He wants power for his benefactors and he wants the Church so he can kill it, I mean,  ‘fix’ it.  In his mind, actual Catholics are the same as ruthless rich bastards who enslaved civilization for eons.  They both comprise a regime that must be dismantled.  They are united in their evil ‘rigidity,’ in a solidness that won’t give way without radical force.

It sounds preposterous and it is. It’s also communism, and for some reason it just won’t die.

“Human calculations,”  the Pontiff warned, “close hearts and shut out freedom”, while “hope gives us levity.”

Levity?

Meditating on the Book of Numbers Francis says:

Balaam opens his heart, repents and sees the truth, Francis noted, because “with good will one always sees the truth. Truth that gives hope.”

While Francis reflected on the beauty of freedom, of the hope of men and women of the Church, he also criticized the rigidity of others in the Church and “that clerical stiffness that contains no hope.”

Truth gives hope.  Hope gives levity.  Freedom is beautiful.  Something is always connected to something else in the aimless wandering of FrancisCosmos, except for rigidity.  Rigidity and clerical stiffness is not related to hope at all.  It has no hope, like the inhabitants of Hell.  Your heart is closed and not like an open door at all.  If you believe, you are stiff.  You need to move or be moved. You have only hopelessness to offer.

“In this Year of Mercy,” the Pope said, “there are these two paths: one of those who hope in God’s mercy and know that God is the Father; and then there are those who take refuge in the slavery of rigidity and know nothing of God’s mercy.”

Two paths?  I thought in the Year of Mercy there was but one path for all and none were excluded.  There are no longer any boundaries or criteria to the Catholic Faith nor to Heaven, and exclusion is against God.  You just step through the door of FrancisMercy and suddenly the mercy of God is imbued into you.  You may now look past your sins because everybody has sins. It doesn’t matter what they are or if you repent them.

So on the other side of the Holy Door of FrancisMercy, after I’ve walked through it partaking now of a new Mercy never before known, I can still go down two paths.  Next year maybe there will be just one path again, but for a year there’re two – just like this year you can go to Confession at an SSPX chapel and it works!

Next year it’s a sin and it might not work, but this year it does and there are also two paths.

Path 1: Hope in God’s mercy and know God is Father.

Path 2: Try and take refuge from my radical Church-wide anathema, be a slave to your rigid Faith, and know nothing whatsoever of God’s mercy.

In the year of FrancisMercy, FrancisMercy is the only mercy.  If you’re too rigid for that, go to Hell.

All around the world today there are pictures of ridiculous looking bishops stepping through special FrancisDoors for what?  Is that really a blessing, honoring a man who hates the Faith of Christ by doing his ceremonial dance of presumption and contempt?  Read the man’s words.  If you are a Catholic, that door brings a curse, and cursed you very well may be.

Jesus’s Favorite Kind of Guy?

Does Pope Francis make a fetish out of some academic, ideological notion of ‘the people?’

The capacity to recognize ourselves as sinners opens us to the astonishment at the encounter with Jesus: that was the message of Pope Francis Thursday morning during Mass for the feast of Saint Gregory the Great, Pope and Doctor of the Church.

Pope Francis’ homily focused on the day’s Gospel reading which tells the story of the miraculous catch of fish. After working throughout the night without catching anything, Peter, trusting in Jesus, cast his nets into the sea. The Holy Father used this story to speak about faith as an encounter with the Lord. First of all, he said, it pleases me to consider the fact that Jesus spent the greater part of His time in the street, with the people; then, later in evening, He went away by Himself to pray – but He encountered the people, He sought the people.”

I have never gotten this message from the Gospel myself.  From what I’ve read, Jesus was just as likely to be at a beautiful wedding, with the doctors in the Temple, or at the home of an important person as among the sick and lame in the street.  How did he ‘recline at table’ if he was huddling in the road all the time?

Sinners are everywhere and Jesus is a King.  He wasn’t a stranger to power and responsibility.  He could relate to it.  He was of course a leader Himself.  I don’t believe Pope Francis or his contemporaries in the hierarchy when they try to paste this ‘preferential option for the poor’ onto Christ.

Wealth is a great temptation, but Jesus didn’t avoid the wealthy, and if they were hardened and proud, he didn’t reject them either.  He scolded the Pharisees because it was for their own good, not because he loved them less.

Christ prefers the repentant faithful.  That’s who he prefers.  He’s not a Communist.

 

 

 

A sin

Ruled as Insufficiently Compelling

Pope Francis has made his universally broad new environmental Catholic doctrine mandatory.  Obey or you’re not a true Christian!  You have no choice in the matter because I’m the Pope of course.

How do we specifically comply with this new teaching from God?  There are millions of media outlets, government funded institutions, and ‘Catholic’ establishments who will provide the necessary action items.

For two years I taught social studies at an inner-city high school; for six years I ran a Catholic Worker shelter for homeless families. Then, almost 20 years ago, I became a full-time animal advocate, confident that such labor is integral to Catholicism.

As one might expect, I received plaudits from fellow Catholics for my anti-poverty and educational work but less support for my animal protection work. Most Catholics I’ve encountered seem to think of such do-gooding as fundamentally removed from religious imperatives.

Yet Pope Francis begs to differ.

“Living our vocation to be protectors of God’s handiwork,” Francis wrote in his latest encyclical, “is essential to a life of virtue; it is not an optional or a secondary aspect of our Christian experience.”

Get out your FrancisChurch notebook.  Full-time paid animal advocacy fits the bill as being ‘essential to a life of virtue!’

On the day Francis released the encyclical, he tweeted, “It is contrary to human dignity to cause animals to suffer or die needlessly. #LaudatoSi.”

Leaving aside the modern method of transmission, this statement is not actually remarkable. It’s a quotation from the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

But what does it mean that we should not cause animals to suffer or die needlessly? Surely this admonition demands more of us than that we not personally injure and kill animals. I’m convinced that we are also obligated as Catholics to avoid paying others to kill or harm animals, absent some exceedingly compelling justification.

Is a chicken sandwich exceedingly compelling?  I’m not sure but I definitely feel guilty.  I was hungry but I wasn’t exceedingly compelled I must admit.  I wish I could ask Pope Francis but he probably just eats beans.

Put another way, “purchasing is always a moral — and not simply economic — act.” That line also comes from the encyclical, in a paragraph in which Francis applauds consumer boycotts focused on pushing corporations to engage in more ethical practices.

Thinking about consumer choices in the context of animal rights, consider that by far the most needless suffering comes at the hands of the meat industry, which kills about 9 billion land animals annually. These creatures are treated in ways that would warrant cruelty-to-animals charges were dogs or cats similarly abused.

Do you know why purchasing is always a moral choice in FrancisGospel?  It’s because he’s an anti-capitalist and his hackles rise when anyone is able to do something with money.  Making money a moral choice gives him jurisdiction over every tiny decision people make.  It robs those foolish enough to believe him of their God-given freedom.

Communists think you should get what they give you when they want you to have it and they think they should own everything you’ve got.  Pope Francis Communists (Liberation Theologists) are the same, but they pretend it’s Christian morality and not just pride, envy, and thievery.

Why does FrancisChurch seem to inevitably lead to putting left wing environmentalist pressure on every tangible industry in the world?  Miners can’t mine; Farmers can’t farm.  Ranchers can’t slaughter cattle.  We can’t eat the meat they sell us.  Nobody can have any money or property that someone else doesn’t, regardless of their choices or rights.  And if you have enough to do something really productive, then you’re really in trouble.

You’re money belongs to you, not to Pope Francis and his false preaching on moral choices.  Buying poison or a mafia hit is a bad use of money, not a steak, or a gun, or an acre of land. We used to understand this was foolishness and tyranny.  Why must we now pretend it’s our Faith?

 

 

 

 

Be in communion. No-one is unmercifully excluded Photo by Kyle Spradley | © 2014 - Curators of the University of Missouri

Merciful FrancisChurch communion.  No-one is excluded.

Since Pope Benedict abdicated due to weariness and in the stated belief that someone, anyone could do better than he could, we have been treated to one unthinkable and outrageous papal crisis after another, the most frightening being the unified hurricane of worldwide media spin behind Francis.  That enormous roar is the sound of money, lots of it.

In general these painful shocks have been limited to three main areas: Francis’s calculated heretical meanderings, his formal documents, and the sinister Synod.  There are actually two others problem areas which are indirect but no less destructive.  These are the license and backing given to unfaithful ‘catholics’ in the institutional church, and the close alliances with anti-Christian lawless political regimes and their players.

Now we have something worse.

Like their Orthodox brothers and sisters, Catholics formally will mark September 1 as the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, Pope Francis has decided.

The day of prayer, the Pope said, will give individuals and communities an opportunity to implore God’s help in protecting creation and an opportunity to ask God’s forgiveness “for sins committed against the world in which we live.”

Pope Francis announced his decision to add the annual prayer day to the Catholic calendar in a letter to Cardinal Peter Turkson, president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, and to Cardinal Kurt Koch, president of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity.

Aside from the unjust anti-capitalist planning Pope Francis continually trumpets as Catholicism, there is also a kind of pantheism, and with it a diminution of human nature – of the rights of man before God. The faux-scientific ranting of his Laudato Si Manifesto betrays a contempt for man’s true dignity, for his freedom, life, family, and material possessions.  Earth-worship and materialistic communism are one and the same. They share a spirituality founded on something that is inevitably dirt, on death.

The faithful pundits have responded with measured council to overlook the lies and accept the truths in the Pope’s letter, but doing so accomplishes little because FrancisChurch is all about hyper-propaganda.  Faithful Catholics are just in the way and will be ignored, managed.  The steamrollers will flatten Christian men and women like so many unarmed Chinese hoping to save their homes.

Francis doesn’t care that you’ve parsed his encyclical according to what is doctrine and what is fancy.  He’s treating the whole thing as if its the God’s truth and asking the entire Catholic world to spend a day begging forgiveness for sins against creation.  What was an erroneous encyclical now becomes a day of Earth-supplication.  What will happen next to all the other days?

Pope Francis said Christians want to make their special contribution to safeguarding creation, but to do that they must rediscover the spiritual foundations of their approach to earthly realities, beginning with an acknowledgment that “the life of the spirit is not dissociated from the body or from nature,” but lived in communion with all worldly realities.

It’s telling that the Pope’s call for our debased communion with the Earth coincides with his push to profane true Holy Communion.  FrancisChurch points down.

The ecological crisis, he said, is a summons “to a profound spiritual conversion” and to a way of life that clearly shows they are believers.

We must believe and demonstrate our belief here to something akin to animism in order to now be ‘Catholic.’

Quoting his encyclical, he said, “living our vocation to be protectors of God’s handiwork is essential to a life of virtue; it is not an optional or a secondary aspect of our Christian experience.”

Behold a definitive statement of Francis’s anti-doctrine.  He isn’t specific here about acts we must perform or avoid, but he is clear about the obedience we must show.  For specifics, just read Laudato Si. In the mind of Francis, its commands are neither ‘optional’ nor ‘secondary’  but ‘essential to a life of virtue.’

If you are still perplexed the new Church of the world will show you how to comply.  Witness California.

As the hollowed-out spaces of Catholic Churches fill with worldly prayers for communism and environmentalism, we are required to make an inhuman submission like the Christian bowing before the Islamist’s knife.  It’s not just a matter of disjointed papal sermons or misguided encyclicals. We must be made spiritually smaller, be degraded to accept FrancisChurch.
