Even Bergoglio Devotee Admits: „FrankenPope Is Mis-Quoting Canon Law”

Even Bergoglio Devotee Admits: „FrankenPope Is Mis-Quoting Canon Law”

en.news – 6/22/18

Pope Francis said on June 21 in the aeroplane from Geneva that canon law allows bishops but not bishops’ conferences to introduce intercommunion.

Francis called a sacrilegious German proposal on intercommunion “not a novelty”, “well done”, “a restrictive document”, “well thought”, “with ecclesial spirit” claiming that it corresponds to canon law.

According to Francis, individual bishops have a right to decide about intercommunion [which is not true].

Even the Bergoglian journalist Robert Mickens who has insulted Benedict XVI as “the rat”, said on Twitter (June 22) that Francis has gotten “this terribly wrong” and that he was “mis-quoting” canon law. read more

The Roots and Historical Consequences of Modernism

The Roots and Historical Consequences of Modernism

Roberto De MatteiRoberto De Mattei – June 23, 2018

Translator’s Note: Roberto de Mattei’s paper, presented today in Rome, is entitled “The roots and historical consequences of Modernism”. It provides a detailed study of the origin of the present theological confusion in the Church in the ideas embraced at the time of the so-called “Modernist crisis” of the early 20th century. The teaching of Maurice Blondel that experience is the criteria of truth spread to influential theologians such as Alfred Loisy, George Tyrrell, and Ernesto Buonaiuti, who all affirmed in various ways that truth is not immutable, rather it evolves as man evolves. These writers in turn influenced Teilhard de Chardin, Henri de Lubac, and Karl Rahner, all of whom were extremely influential on the work and teaching of the Second Vatican Council. This “Neo-Modernism” subtly tried to influence the Church without revealing its agenda of dismantling the philosophical foundation of the immutable nature of Truth and the theological foundation of the unchanging character of Divine Revelation. Through a “revolution of language,” one of the key principles of Marxism, those who seek to foment revolution in the Church have used words such as “renewal,” “aggiornamento,” and “accompaniment” to radically change the Church’s praxis, falsely setting up a separation between doctrine and praxis. The writings and statements of contemporary churchmen such as Walter Kasper, Bruno Forte, and Jorge Bergoglio are imbued with this same thinking. Bergoglio is clearly a disciple of Blondel. The only effective way to combat the present culmination of the “Modernist crisis” is to embrace the immutable Tradition of the Church. read more

The anthropological shift of Vatican II 

Writing to Cardinal Ottaviani on 9 May 1961, Cardinal Ernesto Ruffini (1888-1967) expressed himself without using half-measures: “I have said it other times and I repeat it: Modernism, condemned by St. Pius X, today has become freely spread in aspects even more serious and deleterious than it was then!”[34] The same Cardinal Ruffini, together with Cardinal Ottaviani, had suggested to John XXIII, who succeeded Pius XII in 1958, to convoke an ecumenical Council, thinking that such a council would have condemned the errors of the time in a definitive manner. But John XXIII, in his allocution which opened Vatican II on 11 October 1962, explained that the Council had been launched not to condemn errors or formulate new dogmas, but rather to propose, with language adapted to new times, the perennial teaching of the Church.[35] What actually happened was that the primacy attributed to the pastoral dimension effected a revolution in language and in mentality. It was this new mode of expressing itself which, according to the Jesuit historian Father John W. O”Malley, “signaled a definitive rupture with the preceding Councils.”[36] read more

Neo-Modernism in the Church today 

How extensive is the presence of Neo-Modernism in the Church today? It is difficult to find a seminary or a Catholic university that is immune from it. The question ought to be turned around: Which seminary or Catholic university is faithful to the Magisterium of the Church? Unfortunately, it is not difficult to answer this question. Modernism pervades the Church, even if few explicitly claim it. Among those who do is Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, who in an article which appeared in the newspaper Sole-24 Ore affirmed that the intuition at the foundation of modernism “was linked to the necessity of a cultural and systematic ‘aggiornamento’ of the analysis and communication of the Christian message” and that “in itself this undertaking was not only legitimate but necessary.” In Ravasi’s interpretation, Loisy, Tyrrell, and Buonaiuti were “theologians of great intellectual quality who were attacked by the anti-Modernist repression of the Church.”[50] read more

Attack on the Priesthood, Attack on the Eucharist

Attack on the Priesthood, Attack on the Eucharist

Roberto de Mattei
Corrispondenza Romana

The Holy Eucharist has always been the choice target of those who hate the Church. The Holy Eucharist, in fact, sums up the Church. As a Passionist theologian notes, the Eucharist “epitomizes all the revealed truths; it is the exclusive source of grace: it is the anticipation of bliss, the sum of all the wonders of the Almighty.” (Enrico Zoffoli, Eucarestia o nulla, [The Eucharist or Nothing] Edizioni Segno, Udine 1994, p. 70).

The present attacks on the Sacrament of the Eucharist were predicted by Our Lady of Fatima in 1917. At the Cova da Iria, the Virgin exhorted the three little shepherds to pray to “[…]Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifferences whereby He is offended.” And even before, in the spring of 1916, the Angel had appeared to the children holding a chalice in his hand, above which a Host hung in the air. He gave the Sacred Host to Lucia, and the Blood from the Chalice to Jacinta and Francesco, who remained on their knees, while he said: “Take and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, horribly insulted by ungrateful men. Make reparation for their crimes and console your God.”
Cardinal Robert Sarah, Prefect for the Congregation of Divine Worship, in the preface to Don Federico Bortoli’s fine book- Communion in the Hand. Historical, Juridical and Pastoral Profiles (Cantagalli, Siena 2017), asserts that this backdrop “shows us how we must receive the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ.”
According to the Cardinal, “the outrages that Jesus receives in the Sacred Host” are first of all “the horrible profanations, which some former-Satanists (now  converted) gave horrifying descriptions of”; but also “sacrilegious Communions, received when not in a state of grace, or not professing the Catholic faith”.  Moreover “All that might impede the fruitfulness of the Sacrament, above all, the errors sown in the minds of the faithful as they no longer believe in the Eucharist”.
But the most insidious diabolical attack consists “in attempting to extinguish the faith in the Eucharist, by sowing errors and favoring an unbecoming way of receiving Communion; truly the war between Michael and his Angels on one side, and Lucifer on the other, continues in the hearts of the faithful: Satan’s target is the Sacrifice of the Mass and the true Presence of Jesus in the Consecrated Host”. This attack follows two lines: the first is “the reduction of the concept of the ‘Real Presence’, with the neutralizing of the  term “transubstantiation”.
The second is “the attempt to remove from the hearts of the faithful the sense of the sacred”. Cardinal Sarah writes: “While the term “transubstantiation” points to the Real Presence, the sense of the sacred helps us catch a glimpse of the absolute distinctiveness and holiness of the Sacred Host. What wretchedness it would be to lose the sense of the sacred in that which is precisely the most sacred! And how is it possible? By receiving the special food in the same way as ordinary food.”
He then gives a warning: “May no priest dare to impose his own authority on this matter by refusing or maltreating those who wish to receive Holy Communion on their knees and on the tongue: we come as children and we humbly receive the Body of Christ  kneeling and on the tongue.”
Cardinal Sarah’s observations are more than right, but must be placed into a process of secularization of the liturgy which has its origins in the ambiguous Novus Ordo Missae of Paul VI (April 3, 1969) which next year sees its ominous fiftieth anniversary. This liturgical reform, as Cardinals Ottaviani and Bacci had written when presenting their Brief Critical Study, represented “both as a whole and in its details, a striking departure from the Catholic theology of the Mass as it was formulated in Session XXII of the Council of Trent.”  A new theology of the Mass replaced the traditional one, the notion of sacrifice was removed and faith in the Eucharist, in praxis, was undermined.   
On the other hand, the opening to the divorced and remarried, encouraged by the Exhortation Amoris laetitia, and inter-communion with the Protestants, wished for by many bishops – what are these but outrages to the Eucharist? The Bolognese priest Don Alfredo Morselli has illustrated well the theological roots that link Amoris laetitia and intercommunion with the Evangelicals.*
Let us also say that  the attack on the Eucharist has today become an attack on Holy Orders, because of the close link that unites the two Sacraments. The visible constitution of the Church is founded on Holy Orders, the Sacrament that renders the baptized participant in the Priesthood of Christ; the priesthood is principally exercised in the offering of the Eucharistic Sacrifice which requires the miracle of transubstantiation, the central dogma of the Catholic faith.
If the presence of Christ in the Tabernacle is not real and substantial and the Mass is reduced to a mere memorial, or symbol, of what happened at Calvary, there is no need for priests who offer the sacrifice and since the hierarchy in the Church is founded on the priesthood, the constitution of the Church and Her Magisterium are annulled.  In this sense the admittance of the divorced/remarried and the Protestants to the Eucharist is linked to the prospect of assigning the priesthood to married lay-people and conferring the  minor holy orders to women. The attack on the Eucharist is an attack on the priesthood.
There is nothing greater, more beautiful, more touching than the mercy of God towards the sinner. That Heart which has so loved mankind, by the intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, to which He is inseparably bound, wants us to enjoy eternal happiness in Heaven and nobody, not even the most hardened sinner, can doubt this redeeming love. For this reason we must never lose trust in God, but conserve this until the end of our lives, as no-one has ever been deceived by this ardent trust.  Our Lord does not deceive us, but we  can try to deceive Him and ourselves. And there is no greater deceit in making believe that it’s possible to be saved without repenting of our sins and without professing the Catholic faith.  
        
Those who sin or live in sin, if they repent, will be saved; but if they presume to deceive God, they will not be saved. It is not God that condemns them, but themselves, as, by approaching the Sacraments unworthily, they eat and drink their own condemnation.  It is St. Paul who explains this to the Corinthians, with these grave words:  “Therefore whosoever shall eat this bread, or drink the chalice of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and of the blood of the Lord.  But let a man prove himself: and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of the chalice.  For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh judgment to himself, not discerning the body of the Lord.” (1 Cor. 11, 27-29). St Paul noted then that, in the Corinthian Church, as a result of sacrilegious Communions, there were many cases of people who mysteriously became ill and died. (1Cor. 11,30).
Sad is the fate of those who do not approach the Sacraments because they persist in a life of sin. Worse is the destiny of those who approach the Sacraments sacrilegiously, not being in a state of grace. Even graver is the sin of those who encourage the faithful to receive Communion in a state of sin and administer illicitly the Eucharist to them.  
These are the outrages that wound and pierce most deeply the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. These are the sins that demand our reparation, our presence in front of the Tabernacle and our public defense of the Eucharist against all kinds of desecrators. Doing thus, we will secure our salvation, that of our neighbor and accelerate the coming of the Kingdom of Jesus and Mary in our societies, which will not take long to establish itself upon the ruins of the modern world.

Is Pervert Uncle Teddy McCarrick one of Bella Dodd’s grandchildren?

Dodd also testified that she was personally responsible for placing over one thousand men into Catholic seminaries, men who had no faith, — atheists, communists, homosexuals, all to become priests and later bishops and cardinals whose mission was the destruction of the Catholic faith. It would not have been a hard sell, These men would have been promised an easy life, respect and prestige, a place to live, free food, security and all the sex with concubines and other communists agents they could want and for those who were so inclined, access to young boys. read more

The pseudonymous Pezzo Grosso has explained on Marco Tosatti’s blog (June 22) Pope Francis’ claim that he heard from the Dubia only from the newspapers.

If this claim were true, Pezzo Grosso continues, Francis would need to fire a few people of his entourage.

But he does not do this because Francis’ goal in making such statements is “to ridicule the role of the Pontiff, to make him lose credibility, to act in a way that the Pontiff is considered and recognized like any man, full of flaws, mistakes, etc.” read more

Irish redemptorist priest praises FrankenPope for ‘evolving’ Church to accept sodomy

BELFAST, June 22, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A Redemptorist priest told thousands of pilgrims at an annual celebration of faith in Northern Ireland that Catholic doctrine under Pope Francis has undergone an “evolution” that now makes homosexual relations accepted as “normative.”

“Never before in the history of the Church has a pope dared as Francis does to put the question of sexuality at the center of the Church’s debate, focussing on questions about remarried couples, questions about homosexuality, questions about condom use, and so on,” Fr. Peter McCarthy, C.Ss.R. said June 19 during a homily at the Clonard Novena event. read more

Toronto “Catholic” teacher unions go all out for sodomy

Toronto “Catholic” teacher unions go all out for sodomy

June 22, 2018 (Everyday For Life Canada) – The elementary and high school Catholic teachers in Toronto have been sent an email from their union leaders inviting them to “Come Celebrate Toronto Pride”. The message encourages teachers to walk in solidarity with their union representatives on June 25, 2018.

Will the Catholic union be marching in solidarity for the Kemptville chaplain who lost his position because he chose to defend Catholic teaching? We don’t think so. Chaplaincy leaders are supposed to defend and teach the Catholic faith. But these are times of political correctness. Will the Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association (OECTA) come to support the chaplain in the same way they are prepared to stand for sexual diversity and equity education event? We doubt this too. Where is the bishop responsible for the school’s religious curriculum? read more

ROME, Italy, June 22, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – For the first time in history, Vatican officials have seemingly embraced the notion that some people are born gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender via the inclusion of the term “LGBT” in the preparatory document for the Holy See’s upcoming Youth Synod.

Pro-LGBT Catholic organizations have cheered this as an important milestone. Fr. James Martin, SJ, the priest who stands at the forefront of promoting the normalization of homosexuality and transgenderism within the Church, accurately observed that for orthodox Catholics “It will be harder to object now,” to the infiltration of gay ideology. read more

Now at last the truth about Cardinal McCarrick’s misconduct has become public knowledge. If my email traffic is any indication, many more stories will soon emerge. But Rod Dreher drives right to the central point in his follow-up column, entitled “Cardinal McCarrick: Everybody Knew.

There’s a bit of exaggeration in that headline, because not “everybody” knew about the cardinal’s homosexual approaches to seminarians. The ordinary people in the pews didn’t know. But those seminarians knew, and the word spread across the clerical grapevine. read more
