Pope Bergoglio invents a new sin – the sin against “ecumenism”

Ah, another papal trip, another homily, another aeroplane interview. It’s all becoming so boring.

It is not necessary to write much about what follows. You know the difference between true and false ecumenism.

For those who do not, a quick refresher, it really is quite simple.

True ecumenism is to preach that all Christians ecclesial communities have a duty to return to full and complete and visible unity in the Catholic Church outside of which there is no salvation.

What we have primarily experienced since the Second Vatican Council is a false ecumenism, that we can dialogue and leave people where they are because God just loves them there, anyway. Even though, “there” is out of union with the Church and in heresy or schism.

We don’t need to pick a fight on an individual basis with our Orthodox brothers and sisters. Frankly, given the behaviour of Rome and the those in the west who undermine the Church’s faith, liturgy and morality, what possible reason would the Orthodox have for wanting to discuss unity.

To equate that one can “sin” against “ecumenism” is an utter falacy. It is repugnant to think that a Pope could invent a sin against an action or a theory or a movement. One sins against God, not an idea.

“Be open, be a friend. ‘But I must do everything to convert them!’ There’s a great sin against ecumenism: proselytism, they’re “our brothers and sisters.”

Well, you can dialogue and encounter all you want but it’s not going to get you anywhere if your’e afraid to proclaim the truth.

Oh wait, it will get you somewhere.

  1. As foodies say, “An excellent pairing,” Tom.

    Salud! ( a term used as a toast, or after one sneezes – the latter perhaps more apt in this case )

    Ecuminate (eh-cuum-in-ate): the act of being ecumenical.

    So can you be damned to hell for all eternity for failing to be sufficiently ecumenical, or at least suffer additionally in Purgatory for the same “crime?”

    Franky George Bergoglio thinks so:

    “Be open, be a friend. ‘But I must do everything to convert them!’ There’s a great sin against ecumenism: proselytism, they’re “our brothers and sisters.”

    And remember, “proselytism is solemn nonsense.” I’ll remember to tell that to Saints Francis Xavier, Martin de Porres, Boniface, Augustine, Isaac Jogues, Jean de Brebeuf, et. al, if I am blessed enough to meet them in Heaven.

    Do I even need to unpack this? We see in this statement how in the mind of a progressive, a highly disordered and abused “movement” within the Church magically transmogrifies into a pseudo-doctrine over a few decades, or, at least, when it suits the needs of the progressive to pretend it so. Ecumenism is the solemn nonsense to me. It’s been a movement rife with indifferentism and bearing destructive influences since its inception and has primarily served to wound the Church, not bring Catholics and X closer together.

    Surely some preparatory rhetoric there for the upcoming 500th anniversary of Luther circle jerks “celebrations.”

    * * *

    And as if that were not enough …, it seems it’s become something like open season against the 45 leading Churchmen who had sent a private letter to Francis imploring him to “clarify” the extremely damaging statements of Amoris Laetitia. That letter was subsequently leaked – very likely from the Vatican itself – and the names of the signatories released. Those signatories have since been enduring some harsh repercussions from the “peace, love, and brotherhood” side of the Church …

    According to the new religion, everyone is entitled to heaping helpings of mercy, except those worthless Pharisaical Promethean neo-Pelagian adherents of the bad old religion.

    Apparently we have two new super-Commandments. “Thou shalt ecuminate with all thy heart, and all thy soul, and all thy strength,” and the second is like unto it, “Thou shalt not point out the emperor’s nakedness.”

  3. Will You Go to Hell For Failure to Ecuminate?

    No, but you may need to get a strong laxative.
