LaDonna Cardinal Wuerl: Pope Unleashed Second Vatican Council

With Pope Francis “all that Pentecostal energy that the [Second Vatican] Council unleashed is now being felt”, said Washington Cardinal Donald Wuerl (76) to Crux. According to Wuerl Francis wants to do “something” with this energy. Wuerl didn’t even try to prove his claims from the texts of the Council.

Further he tried to downplay opposition to Francis and to the controversial Amoris Laetitia, saying that this is “not a very large group” and called the discussion about it “esoteric”.

  1. There’s a gap in the floor of hell waiting for this jackweasel’s skull.

  2. Wuerl has spent to much time in his 40 million dollar penthouse with his secretary . The rarified air has made him delusional !

  3. Wuerl got it right this time. He’s been waiting 50 years for this unleashing. Anybody willing to take an objective look can see the logical progression begun at the Council. Francis is part of that. “By its fruits, you will know it.” Wuerl and Francis are fruits, alright.

  4. Mike Brady: I’m afraid the cardinal is right. We have to unleash Jan and let her go the the Metallica concert with her pot-smoking friends.

    Carol Brady: Are you sure, Mike? Remember when we let the kids have the Cardinal Wuerl’s sex-ed program “Catholic Vision of Love,” and Marcia started having fantasies about other girls?

    Mike: Carol, we have to trust the cardinal and the pope. They have the guidance of the holy ghost. Or some ghost.

  5. Mike Brady: That’s it, Carol! Maybe all this time we’ve been pushing Jan too hard to keep up with the other kids and that’s why she’s hiding her joy.

    Carol Brady: You think we should let her go to the Justin Bieber concert?

    Mike Brady: Well, sure. But what I was really thinking is that we should let Jan go to a Charismaniac hootenanny where she can feel the neo-gnostic Pentecostal energy that Vatican II unleashed.

    Carol Brady: Are you sure, Mike? I’ve heard that some of those charismaniac services can get pretty wild. She might get injured if a hysterical 300-pound charismatic woman decides to roll around on the floor to speak in tongues and falls on top of Jan.

    Mike Brady: Oh. I hadn’t thought of that.

    Carol Brady: Well, Mike, I grew up Catholic and we never did any of that rolling around on the floor stuff at Mass when I was a child.

    Mike Brady: Well, maybe we could let her go to one of those weekend Enneagram seminars to figure out why she’s hiding her joy. If anyone knows anything about what to do about hiding one’s joy it ought to be one of those crazy New Age ex-nuns who charge four hundred dollars for a weekend Enneagram seminar.

    Carol Brady: Mike!

    Küng Fu: Modernism the Legend Continues

    Master Po: What is troubling you, Grasshopper?

    Kwai Chang: I am confused, Master. If Mr. and Mrs. Brady do not wish their daughter Jan to hide her joy, why would they let their daughter make a fool of herself at a charismaniac hootenanny, risking permanent damage and serious injury if a hysterical 300-pound charismaniac woman decides to roll around on the floor to speak in tongues and falls on top of Jan?

    Master Po: The cycle of karma takes us on many paths, Grasshopper. But who can know the way to San Jose?

    Kwai Chang: I cannot be certain of this, Master, for I have not yet attained ontological certitude as a Shaolin Master, understanding all Taoist, Confucian, and Zen riddles, as you would wish me to. But I fear that you wish me to hide my joy until I do.

    Master Po: Ah, Grasshopper, ontological certitude requires patience. In time it will come to you and you will snatch pebble from my hand and be done with these annoying passive-aggressive questions which I must ask you for your spiritual nourishment. But I shall put it to you another way. Think wisely, Grasshopper. If Immanuel Kant could be any character on Scooby-Doo, which would he most likely choose – Fred, Daphne, Shaggy, Scooby, or Velma?

    Shaggy: That is a tough question.

    Velma: It must be somewhere in The Mahabharata or this copy of The Bhagavad Gita.

    Kwai Chang: This is a trick question, is it not, Master?

    Hans Küng: I would like to address that…

    Father Mulcahy, S.J.: That only seems fair. As Father Gannon used to say at Fordham in the old days, give the man a chance to gather his thoughts and come up with his answer…

  6. “LaDonna Cardinal Wuerl: Francis Unleashed Second Vatican Council” reminds me of …

  7. Master Po: Have you considered the question sufficiently to provide an answer, Grasshopper?

    Kwai Chang: I cannot be certain, Master. It is possible that there are some areas of modernism which I do not understand yet with clarity. Perhaps if you were to repeat the question….

    Master Po: Have you not already had sufficient time to experience the Pentecostal energy unleashed by the modernist Spirit of Vatican II?

    Kwai Chang: Surely, I cannot be certain, Master. Perhaps if you ask Jeff Spicoli, he will know the answer.

    Spicoli: I don’t know about Jan Brady’s Enneagram number, but I can’t picture Immanuel Kant as Daphne or Shaggy in Scooby-Doo. That narrows it down to Fred, Velma, or Scooby…and I’m just not sure yet. Maybe Velma. She’s pretty smart and brainy with books. But Scooby would fit in with a neo-Kantian Transcendental Aesthetic, following in the tradition of aesthetics of Alexander Gottlieb Baumgarten, so…I can’t decide yet.

    Batman: Make a note of that, Robin! It could be useful in your studies at Fordham Prep.

    Robin: OK, Batman.

    Master Po: You must think more deeply, Jeff. Then the answer will come to you.

    Shaggy: It sounds technical, Scoob …

    Captain Kirk: Mister Spock! Why doesn’t Spicoli know the answer? Too much sinsemilla resin in his brain?

    Spock: That is a distinct possibility, Captain, and one we should consider carefully, given Spicoli’s advisory role in foreign policy making for the last presidential administration.

    Luke Skywalker: Ben, you’re a Catholic, aren’t you?

    Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: Ever since my conversion, yes.

    Luke Skywalker: I guess I don’t know that much about neo-modernism, but would Jan Brady really be in danger at a charismaniac hootenanny?

    Captain Kirk: Captain’s Log, stardate 1329.1 , the crew of the Enterprise is investigating why Spicoli is unable to reason clearly….

    Reverend Neuhaus: That’s my opening….Forgive me for interrupting again as aggressive and pushy professional Protestant converts sometimes do, but speaking as a semi-recovering former Lutheran familiar with the pitfalls of eliminating reason and logic from discussions of religion, this might be a good time to discuss the Naked Public Square in modernity, Max Weber’s concept of disenchantment in modern culture, and Professor Taylor’s secularization theories….

  8. Carol Brady: Mike, if I go along with your idea to let Jan go to one of these charismaniac hootenannies to roll on the floor and speak in tongues, shrieking like a banshee, what then?

    Mike Brady: Well, Carol, then Jan can experience the full pneumatic outpouring of the Holy Spirit and the modernist vibes from the eschatological chiliasm and Pentecostal energy from the Spirit of Vatican II and the neo-Gnostic charismaniac Parousia. Since Jan won’t have to hide her joy anymore, she’ll be able to express her charismaniac joy by scolding others for hiding their joy, like other modernist charismaniacs who go around scolding fellow Catholics for hiding their joy.

    Carol Brady: Gee, I don’t know, Mike. That sounds a lot like Jansenism. Do you think Jan will be able to handle scolding and shaming others for hiding their joy?

    Mike Brady: Jansenism? I hadn’t thought of that….

    Carol Brady: Mike, you’re the father of a large family. You have to think about these kinds of things. What will happen to Greg, Peter, Bobby, Marcia, and Cindy if Jan is prancing around the house scolding them for hiding their joy all the time?

    Father Mulcahy, S .J.: Oh, yes, Jansenism can be a problem. Especially now when most modernist neo-Catholics don’t even know what it is, thanks to the curriculum changes from the Land O’Lakes conference agenda…

    Captain Kirk: Mister Spock! Will Jan be able to handle that kind of pneumatic power, scolding and shaming others for hiding their joy?

    Spock: Doubtful, Captain. It proved too much for Simon Magus as well.

  9. Greg Brady: Mom, Dad, could I have a word with you about Jan and this charismatic thing about her hiding her joy?

    Mike Brady: Sure, Greg, what’s on your mind?

    Carol Brady: We’ve both read Dr. Spock. What is it, Greg?

    Greg Brady: Well, if Jan starts marching around the house scolding and shaming the rest of us for hiding our joy, I might flip out.

    Carol Brady: I have to admit, Mike, the thought of Jan scolding all of us for hiding our joy is worrisome. And what if Jan gets seriously injured if a 300-pound hysterical charismaniac woman falls on top of Jan after deciding to jump on the floor to roll around and speak in tongues at one of these charismaniac hootenanny services?

    Mike: Oh. I hadn’t thought of that….

    Carol: Well, Mike, the father of a large family has to think about these kinds of dangers.

    Carol Brady: Could you tell her “no” for me. The last thing we need is Jan scolding the rest of the kids for hiding their joy.

    Mike: Oh, Ok.

    Greg: Peter and I have another concern. If Jan starts pressuring the rest of us to attend an Enneagram seminar to find out our Enneagram numbers I’ll be out four hundred bucks!

    Peter: Yeah.

    Mike: Four hundred?

    Mike: Well, four hundred does sound a little high just for a New Age Enneagram seminar.

    It’ll probably cut into your weed fund a bit, huh, Greg?

    Mike: Alright, Greg. But only from licensed dispensaries. And no smoking in the house.

    Greg: Groovy.

    Greg: Oh, and one more thing.

    Mike: What’s that, Greg?

    Greg: I’ve decided to accept the Johnny Bravo offer from the record company.

    Carol: Mike….

  10. Mike Brady: Johnny Bravo?

    Greg Brady: That’s the hipster name they invented to go with the groovy costume. They said if I fit the suit that they would give me the contract. And, well, I fit the suit.

    Mike Brady; Well, alright, Greg. But you’ll have to find out what Johnny Bravo’s Enneagram number is first.

    Alice: They’re having an Enneagram seminar at the YMCA, Mrs. Brady.

    Carol Brady: We’ll have to tell Johnny Bravo.

    Mike Brady: Well, at least he’s not hiding his joy.

    Bobby Brady: We were thinking maybe we should find out our Enneagram numbers too.
    Peter: Yeah.

    Alice: Do you know how much a weekend Enneagram seminar costs?

    Peter Brady: Only four hundred dollars.

    Carol: Mike….

    Bobby Brady: We could always pawn my Tiki idol at the pawn shop…

    Marcia Brady: You wouldn’t want to sell a good luck charm.

    Greg Brady: Right. We’ll enter the song contest to win the money…

    Davy Jones: That’s a great idea! I’ll just ask the Monkees to back us up…

    Marcia: With Davy Jones and the Monkees we’re sure to win!

    Peter: Just make sure not to hide our joy!

    Davy: You can say that again.

    Peter: Just make sure not to…
