Meanwhile, as the Hell debate raged…

Pope Francis mean face 2According to reports, a cardinal or cardinals has challenged Francis over the Hell dust-up; perhaps even going so far as to suggest that he may lose his “so-called pontificate” (as Fr. Gruner aptly called it).

I’m not sure what to make of this. As I wrote in yesterday’s post, Amoris Laetitia contains blasphemy and heresy – signed, sealed, and delivered – with no room for debate.

And yet it wasn’t until this latest Bergoglian-Scalfarian scandal erupted that such an action has taken place?

Something doesn’t add up.

In any case, the alleged challenge (as reported by Antonio Socci) was presented to Francis on Holy Thursday.

How did he respond?

He pressed forward full speed ahead with his evil plan to destroy what little is left of a Church that no pre-conciliar Catholic would even remotely recognize.

During the Easter Vigil, he once again used the occasion of his homily to encourage acceptance of his agenda, saying:

We are invited to contemplate the empty tomb and to hear the words of the angel: “Do not be afraid… for he has been raised” (Mt 28:5-6). Those words should affect our deepest convictions and certainties, the ways we judge and deal with the events of our daily lives, especially the ways we relate to others.

HINT: Let us not address the matter of Holy Communion for those publicly known to be in mortal sin the way the Church has always done so.

This he made even clearer as he stated:

To celebrate Easter is to believe once more that God constantly breaks into our personal histories, challenging our “conventions”, those fixed ways of thinking and acting that end up paralyzing us. To celebrate Easter is to allow Jesus to triumph over the craven fear that so often assails us and tries to bury every kind of hope.

Translation: Be not afraid! Amoris Laetitia is Thomist! It’s Catholic! No, really!

He went on:

The stone before the tomb shared in this, the women of the Gospel shared in this, and now the invitation is addressed once more to you and to me. An invitation to break out of our routines and to renew our lives, our decisions and our existence. An invitation that must be directed to where we stand, what we are doing and what we are, with the “share of power” that is ours.

So, you see, the bi-millennial practice of the Church, which is itself an expression of the immutable faith and the very words of Our Lord, are but a worn out “routine.”

How can we change such things?

Easy, we have a “share of power;” the same power that Christ exhibited in the Resurrection!

A time will come when the Church will be tempted to believe that man has become God.

It’s here, folks.

Now, a word about “the stone.”

In this very same homily, Francis demonstrated for all to see just how evil can strip a man of his ability to reason; even to the point where his intellect is dulled in the most remarkable of ways.

Francis declared:

The stone before the tomb cried out and proclaimed the opening of a new way for all. Creation itself was the first to echo the triumph of life over all that had attempted to silence and stifle the joy of the Gospel. The stone before the tomb was the first to leap up and in its own way intone a song of praise and wonder, of joy and hope, in which all of us are invited to join.

The stone cried out… The stone proclaimed… The stone was the first to leap up…

Yes, he actually said this. (NOTE: I double-checked the Italian text to make sure that the English translation provided by the Vatican is accurate.)

No, Jorge Bergoglio isn’t insane. He knows very well that the Scriptures tell us that “an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and coming rolled back the stone and sat upon it,” and this same angel was the first to proclaim “He is risen.” (cf Mt 28:2,6)

He is simply so immersed in his own evil ways that he has been rendered as one who speaks as if he is insane.

On Easter Sunday, he once again insisted:

God’s announcements are always surprises, because our God is the God of surprises … God can not make an announcement without surprising us.

(And guess what? He wants the Church to look exactly as Jorge would have it look. Surprise!)

At the Easter vigil, Francis posed the following rhetorical question, and it’s a good one:

Do we prefer simply to continue standing speechless before events as they happen?

I, for one, refuse to stand speechless as this man wreaks havoc on the Church and leads countless souls to perdition; rather, I intend to call his heresies and blasphemies by their proper name, warning everyone who has ears to hear that this man simply is not a member of the Church; much less her head on earth, and he therefore must be avoided.

May it please God to inspire others, especially those in the sacred hierarchy, to follow suit.

One comment on “Meanwhile, as the Hell debate raged…

  1. Louie, we truly “feel your pain”.
    But neither you nor any of us laypukes has the authority to declare the apparent occupant of Peter’s chair to be not what he apparently is.
    Consider this: Jorge Begoglio is not the first heretic on the throne of Peter. At the very least, Benedict XVI and the Un-Saint JPII were, materially and objectively, heretics before him. Anyone doubting this needs to do a little homework.
    So why would Francis be self-deposed for heresy, but his predecessors not?
    Is it that he has reached a level of super-duper, extraheretical hereticalness that the others didn’t reach?
    If so, where precisely is the line over which one passes into super-duper, extraheretical hereticalness, and is thus self-deposed?
    Fact: Heresy is a choice one makes to place one’s own opinion over that of Faith in what God, through His Church, has taught. One is therefore equally a heretic whether one denies a single article of Faith or every single one of them.
    Face it, Louie. The line is not out there anywhere. It’s in you. Your insistence that Francis is not the pope is a result of no objective facts “out there”. It is purely a result of your frustration at the egregious frequency of his heretical words and heresy-favoring actions.
    Was Judas Iscariot automatically self-excommunicated from the apostleship?
    If so, concerning Judas, why does Acts 1:16ff quote Ps. 108: “Men, brethren, the scripture must needs be fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost spoke before by the mouth of David concerning Judas, who was the leader of them that apprehended Jesus: Who was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry. And he indeed hath possessed a field of the reward of iniquity, and being hanged, burst asunder in the midst: and all his bowels gushed out. And it became known to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem: so that the same field was called in their tongue, Haceldama, that is to say, The field of blood. For it is written in the book of Psalms: Let their habitation become desolate, and let there be none to dwell therein. And his bishopric let another take. ”
    Short of some highly unlikely decision of a proper authority, such as a council of a majority (at least) of bishops, Francis can only be deposed in two ways.
    1) By resignation.
    2) By death, as Judas was.
    Christ Himself chose not to depose Judas, although He could have. He chose rather to die on the cross.
    It’s for us then to just pray, do penance, and work for Francis’ resignation, or pray and do penance for his conversion, or pray and do penance for his death.
    Some of these intentions are more virtuous than others. :o)
    If God chooses not to hear us, well…Ave crux, spes unica!
