Father Julián Carrón, leader of the Catholic movement Communion and Liberation

Although some Catholics, especially the more conservative sort, often find Pope Francis a bit of a shock to the system, the leader of the Church’s influential Communion and Liberation movement says that if you don’t think this pontiff is the cure, then you don’t understand the nature of the disease we’re facing in a post-modern, secular world.

  1. Quote from the article: ““The changes we’re living through are so radical, so unprecedented, that I get why many people just don’t understand what’s happening or the gestures of Pope Francis,” he said. “But if we don’t understand those gestures now, we will in a time when we see the consequences they’re leading to.” Carrón argued that what’s happened in modernity is that people have lost site (sic) of what it means to be a human being, so the crisis is much deeper than simply the rejection of this or that ethical precept, and that what’s needed now is not so much moral exhortation or theological argument (…)”

    This is actually quite frightening in a “brave, new world” sort of way. It really is about what Hilary White & Ann Barnhardt have been saying: a battle between those who see reality rooted in the Word (Logos) of God and a human hubris that believes it can change anything at whim… gender, sexuality, morality, etc. I’ve been exposed to the ramblings of Communion and Liberation’s founder Luigi Giussani because the missalette Magnificat often featured his writing. I always had to read and reread each passage to try (in vain) to defect any semblance of rational thought. Instead his words seemed the ravings of a lunatic. It’s no wonder that Francis supporters are found within this group.

  2. These C&L clowns have been applauded by the post-conciliar neo-cons since the 1980s. Close to Wojtyla, Ratzinger and the Communio crowd, they have been nothing more than foot soldiers for the alliance between the Vatican and the left wing of the Christian Democrat Party in Italy.

    About as useful for the good of the Church as a screen door on a submarine.

  3. That the highest of the highest prelates, since the 60s, have been openly treasonous and left unchecked in their infamy explains much about why the current catastrophe has reached this point, which will likely only grow much worse.

    Although I oppose the anti-“Traditionalist” positions the author of “The Jewish Revolutionary Spirit” ( i.e., one E Michael Jones ) has maintained for decades, he does make a sound point in that massive tome: Since revolution, per se, is an act of blind madness born of rejection of the Logos (Christ), the only eventual means to check it is brute force.

    Thus, the burnings-at-the-stake of a several self-appointed heretical chieftains, prior and subsequent to the formal rise of the prot revolution, did manage to check, for awhile, further dissemination of their blasphemous, evil doctrines.

    I certainly don’t endorse those earlier definitive acts as a solution to the current insanity. However, Canon Law provisions in re. removing heretics from office are still on the books.
