We here at Rorate rarely laud Francis. However, he has been consistent, and we have consistently lauded him, for his numerous dismissals, and outright mochary, of the Medjugorje hoax.

But one man is openly, and purposely, contradicting Pope Bergoglio. read more

It’s disturbing to hear cardinal’s defense of sacraments called ‘pastoral terrorism’ after Chile’s abortion vote

It’s disturbing to hear cardinal’s defense of sacraments called ‘pastoral terrorism’ after Chile’s abortion vote

Judie Brown

August 22, 2017 (American Life League via LifeSiteNews) — A recent article regarding Church teaching and the Eucharist really rattled me. It carried the good news that Chile’s retired Cardinal Jorge Medina Estevez stated publicly that “Catholic politicians who voted to legalize abortion in Chile cannot receive the sacraments until they show public signs of repentance.” Yet it also carried the distressful news that left-wing Jesuit Fr. Felipe Berrios responded by suggesting that the cardinal’s words of instruction to pro-abortion politicians were “heartless” and examples of “pastoral terrorism.” Another Chilean commentator excused the pro-abortion politicians by saying: “We must say no to the right to freely have an abortion, but at the same time learn to trust in the mature consciences of our brethren.” read more

PORTLAND, Oregon, August 22, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — A high profile Vatican consultant has publicly departed from Catholic teaching on homosexuality, saying God made “LGBTQ people … who they are.”

Father James Martin, a Jesuit priest who is the editor at large of America Magazine as well as an adviser to the Vatican’s Secretariat for Communications, made the comment to the pro-homosexual organization PFLAG (Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) on August 18. read more

In his document for the Day of the Migrant – published now although it is dated 14 January 2018 – Pope Francis asks, that children of illegal immigrants who are born in the new country, be given citizenship automatically (ius soli). This demand is supported by leftwing parties and former Communists.

In the document Francis puts “personal security” against “national security”, although they belong together, saying that the first is always to put before the second, an unfortunate statement in the light of the recent Barcelona terror attacks. read more

Monsignor Ignazio Zambito, the former Bishop of Patti, Sicily, said to La Fede Quatidiana that “Islam is not a religion of peace”.

About illegal immigrants he added, “They are not human resources and much less an opportunity, at least not in the present way. They could become this if they really wanted to integrate. But the majority of them refuses to integrate. How often do they arrogantly throw away the food they receive from volunteers? Or they say that Italy is disgusting?” read more

An op-ed on the webpage of the Vaticanista Marco Tosatti [À PEZZO GROSSO LANCIA UN APPELLO AL PAPA PER IL VIAGGIO IN COLOMBIA: NON VEDA LE FARC E PREGHI LA MADONNA DI CHIQUINQUIR] appeals to Pope Francis not to meet with representatives of the Marxist-Leninist terror organization FARC while visiting Colombia in September. In October 2016 a popular referendum declined agreements with FARC. Francis and the Columbian bishops had been invited to vote in favor of it. FARC is responsible for over 200’000 casualties. read more

Vatican spokesperson Paloma García Ovejero told CruxNews on Friday (Explaining papal calm on security …) that the Vatican is not taking any extra security precautions in light of the events in Spain, in part because “we don’t have any evidence” of a specific threat. She added, “We haven’t increased measures of security, because here, the level of vigilance was already very strong.” Pope Francis, a strong proponent of mass-immigration into Europe, lives well protected behind the high Vatican walls. read more

The Italian paper Il Giornale has noticed that very few people showed up for Pope Francis’ Angelus on August 20th, “Saint Peter’s square was half-empty.” The paper speaks of “one of the lowest numbers since the beginning of this pontificate” and tries to put the blame on the hot weather or even on the terrorist attacks in Barcelona.

The readers in the commentary section are less obsequious. Referring to Francis’ tireless efforts in favor of illegal mass-immigration, one of them writes, “They could have filled the square with all the immigrants!” read more

“I have learned, that I must abandon myself totally to defending Christ and His Church”, Cardinal Raymond Burke said to The Wanderer on August 21.

God assists us even in matters of physical strength and of being able to endure very difficult situations. The Cardinal discovered this “because there have been times when things that have been said about me are very painful.”

With great honesty he adds, “From my childhood, I have been rather sensitive to being criticized by other people — it is not something I enjoy. But I have found that the recent, somewhat harsh criticism does not deter me from doing what Our Lord asks of me and that I am very much at peace.” read more

CHILE, August 21, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – In a 6-4 vote today, Chile’s high court upheld a law legalizing abortion in cases of rape, danger to the mother’s life, and fetal disability.

Pope Francis’ mediocre theological advisor, Archbishop Víctor Manuel “Tucho” Fernández, rector of the Catholic University in Buenos Aires [and expert on the “art of kissing” in his book Heal Me With Your Mouth], issued a defence of “Amoris Laetitia” in Medellín, the theology journal of the Latin-American Bishops’ Conference.

Fernández claims that Francis gave an “authoritative interpretation” of the controversial chapter eight of Amoris Laetitia, which seems to allow Communion for adulterers. He refers to a September 2016 letter which Francis wrote to the bishops of Buenos Aires. But this letter, instead of removing doubts about the orthodoxy of Amoris Laetitia, sheds doubts on Francis’ orthodoxy. read more
