9/24/17 – Francis Will Again Refuse To Dialogue

Francis will give to the recent ”Filial Correction” by a group of scholars the same response as to the Dubia cardinals: “silence”, writes Raymond Arroyo on twitter.

The Journalist of EWTN thinks that Francis has already responded “via the reformation of the John Paul II Institute on Marriage and the Family and via the dismissal of any critics”.

9/25/17 – No Dialogue: Even Francis’ Friends Admit

In a pro-Francis article in Il Giornale, Francesco Boezi shows the difference between Benedict XVI and Francis. According to Boezi, Benedict XVI followed a dialectical personnel policy that was the expression of different ideological currents and promoted those liberal circles, that did not agree with him.

On the contrary, Francis is “less inclined toward an internal dialogue”, writes Boezi.

  1. Captain Kirk: Mister Spock! Pope Francis being less inclined toward internal dialogue and Raymond Arroyo’s report that the Pope will give his critics the silent treatment… analyze using your usual superior Vulcan logic which we no longer call “superior” to avoid triggering sensitive liberals and progressive Social Justice Warriors less familiar with Aristotelian logic, due to changes in curriculum, who might consider such displays of logic to be oppressive microaggressions.

    Spock: Fascinating, Captain. Of course, the Pope has been changed with heresy, a serious charge in the Catholic Church. He may, therefore, need to check with canon lawyers before addressing the charges.

    Captain Kirk: Canon lawyers? Of course…

    Sister Mary Benedict: Perhaps the Holy Father must ask his Jesuit superior for permission before he can reply to the heresy charges.

    Father O’Malley: Oh, I don’t think it works that way, Sister. When Father Bergoglio became a bishop, he was relieved of his submission to his Jesuit superiors.

    Father Fitzgibbon: Like, when the Red Sox traded Babe Ruth to the Yankees.

    Captain Kirk: Would he actually have to ask his Jesuit superiors for permission, Mister Spock?

    Spock: Anything is possible, Captain.

    Father O’Malley: Of course, Seifert has to settle a few issues with his bishop as well.

    Father Fitzgibbon: Seifert? Is he the fullback playing for Rockne at Notre Dame?

    Sister Mary Benedict: Father, you don’t think perhaps that the Holy Father is refusing to answer because he’s…hiding his joy?

    Father O’Malley: Hiding his joy? Well, it’s possible that there have been cases of Jansenism in Argentina. Sometimes Jansenists hide their joy a bit. I’ll have to ask Father Fitzgibbon, of course.

    Luke Skywalker: Ben, do you think Darth Vader could be a Jansenist? And that’s why he hides his joy so much when he’s turning to the Dark Side?

    Obi-Wan Kenobi: Luke, you and I should have a long talk about Jansenism.

    Father Mulcahy, S.J.: Jansenism? Well, St. Thomas Aquinas recommends cold showers for that.

    Walker Percy: Maybe he just needs a good drink.

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

    Hans Küng: I would like to address that…

    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….
