  1. The Vatican Is Going To Accept Condemned Teilhard de Chardin

    [Will the Jesuit movers and shakers soon say “Santo e dottore della Chiesa subito (Make him a saint and doctor of the Church now)!”?]

    The Pontifical Council for Culture unanimously approved a petition to Pope Francis requesting him to waive the condemnation of Jesuit Father Teilhard de Chardin (+1955). The Council is headed by [Modernist] Cardinal Ravasi and has no competence to judge theological works.

    Chardin was condemned several times. In 1925 he had to withdraw his denial of original sin. In 1962 the Vatican found that Chardin’s works “abound in such ambiguities and indeed even serious errors, as to offend Catholic doctrine”. Chardin’s thought is a strange mix between theology and the theory of evolution.

    The Council for Culture wants Francis to acknowledge Chardin’s effort “to reconcile the scientific vision of the universe with Christian eschatology” although Chardin’s achievements are highly disputed in the scientific community.

  2. This is Teilhard’s church. Ratzinger as Pope Benedict confirmed it:

    “The role of the priesthood is to consecrate the world so that it may become a living host, a liturgy: so that the liturgy may not be something alongside the reality of the world, but that the world itself shall become a living host, a liturgy. This is also the great vision of Teilhard de Chardin: in the end we shall achieve a true cosmic liturgy, where the cosmos becomes a living host.” (Benedict XVI, Homily, Celebration of Vespers with the Faithful of Aosta, July 24, 2009)

    Yes, Ratzinger is a Teilhardian, an evolutionist who views the Church and salvation history as the convergence envisioned by Teilhard. If you have the time, this article provides a very horrifying picture: A Living Host: Liturgy, and Cosmic Evolution in the Thought of Benedict XVI and Teilhard de Chardin

    I can’t begin to understand how the Good God could allow Ratzinger to become pope. Likewise Bergoglio. Add Wojtyla, Montini and Roncalli to that list as well. We are being severely punished, given teachers who say “what their ears are itching to hear.”

    • The answer as to how the Good God could allow Ratzinger and Bergoglio to become popes is given by you yourself:
      We are being severely punished.
      And how very, very richly we deserve it.

      “And now you know what withholdeth, that he may be revealed in his time. 7 For the mystery of iniquity already worketh: only that he who now holdeth do hold, until he be taken out of the way. 8 And then that wicked one shall be revealed: whom the Lord Jesus shall kill with the spirit of his mouth and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: him 9 Whose coming is according to the working of Satan, in all power and signs and lying wonders: 10 And in all seduction of iniquity to them that perish: because they receive not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. Therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying: 11 That all may be judged who have not believed the truth but have consented to iniquity. “
