“Doctrine changes when pastoral contexts shift and new insights emerge” – Richard Gaillardetz

This blog has not ceased to denounce Antonio Spadaro S.J. as a villainous deceiver and a heresiarch. The cunning Jesuit, on a number of occasions, has skillfully and subtly pushed for the Adulterist Party – that is, those churchmen who are advocating the giving of Holy Communion to adulterers.

Toronto Catholic Witness has posted a number of times on Spadaro’s and others attempts to introduce the acceptance of adultery (the acceptance of sin!) into the Church, all the while denying it, and that doctrine would be changed. The Vox, at Vox Cantoris has written numerous times about this attempt to change doctrine under the guise of only changing pastoral practice.

The Vox wrote:

I’ve written previously about words originating in the National Catholic Reporter by Richard Gaillardetz and repeated ad nauseam as his own, without attribution, by Thomas Rosica, CSB. It must be repeated here to underscore what is written by Spadaro and reprinted below:

“Will this Pope re-write controversial Church doctrines? No. But that isn’t how doctrine changes. Doctrine changes when pastoral contexts shift and new insights emerge such that particularly doctrinal formulations no longer mediate the saving message of God’s transforming love. Doctrine changes when the Church has leaders and teachers who are not afraid to take note of new contexts and emerging insights. It changes when the Church has pastors who do what Francis has been insisting: leave the securities of your chanceries, of your rectories, of your safe places, of your episcopal residences go set aside the small minded rules that often keep you locked up and shielded from the world.”

What Vox has nailed down, has also been called a “Christological heresy” by Cardinal Muller. Now, we have an excellent interview published in The Wanderer with Raymond Cardinal Burke confirming our worst fears. Vox Cantoris wrote and warned us about the deceitfulness of the Synod’s Final Report. In The Wanderer interview, Vox’s analysis is confirmed by a Prince of the Church:

Cardnal Burke states:

The final report’s paragraph on this topic is deceptive in a very serious way. It gives the false impression of presenting the teaching of Familiaris Consortio, a teaching which is also illustrated in a document by the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts [to which the final report also refers]. The Synod’s final report suggests that Familiaris Consortio and the Pontifical Council’s document open a way for access to the sacraments by people in irregular matrimonial unions. It is just the opposite. I was truly disheartened that the final report stopped short of presenting the full teaching of Familiaris Consortio in the matter.

The Cardinal goes on to outline the specific deceitful actions of Spadaro:

At the same time, I was also disturbed because I knew this would be used by individuals like Fr. Spadaro and others to say that the Church has changed her teaching in this regard, which, in fact, is simply not true.

I really believe that the whole teaching in Familiaris Consortio should have been addressed through the final document of the Synod. During my experience of the 2014 Extraordinary Synod of Bishops, it was as if Pope John Paul II never existed. If one studies the Synod’s final document, the richness of the magisterial teaching of Familiaris Consortio, which is such a beautiful document, is not there.This would have been the ideal time to recover it and present it again in all its richness. One gets the strong impression that, even though it was repeatedly claimed that the Synod was not about relaxing the Church’s teaching or discipline regarding the indissolubility of marriage, this was indeed, in the end, what was driving everything.

For Fr. Spadaro, considering all the things contained in the final document, to point to the notion that this Synod accomplished what the other session could not, is very troubling. We have to be honest with one another about this. Something here is not right.

Did you read that, dear friends? “…it was as if Pope John Paul II never existed…the richness of the magisterial teaching…is not here…something here is not right”. Yet, for people such as Thomas Rosica CSB, the 2014 and 2015 experiences were successes.

Dear friends, we need to prepare for every eventuality. Pray, pray for the Pope that he not succumb to the deceitful words whispered in his ear by these heresiarchs who infest Rome and various chanceries and dioceses around the world. Let the Holy Father fall to his knees – for once – before Our Lady of Fatima, who distinctly said: “only I can help you”.
