Teilhard, the Council and Bergoglio

 Louie  September 19, 2017

With the publication of the Envirocylcical, Laudao Si’, many were shocked to discover that this represented the first time the once-condemned French Jesuit, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, was cited in a papal (if you will allow) encyclical. (Laudato Si’, footnote no. 53)

In 1962, Teilhard was the subject of a monitum (warning) issued by the Holy Office which read in part:

The most eminent and most revered Fathers of the Holy Office exhort all Ordinaries, as well as the superiors of Religious institutes, rectors of seminaries and presidents of universities, effectively to protect the minds, particularly of the youth, against the dangers presented by the works of Fr. Teilhard de Chardin and of his followers. read more

Did the Pope just answer the dubia by abolishing the John Paul II Institute?

September 19, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — One year ago to this day, four Cardinals submitted five yes-or-no questions to Pope Francis asking him if his 2016 exhortation on marriage and the family — Amoris Laetitia — conforms to perennial Catholic teaching on marriage, moral absolutes, conscience, and the sacraments.

The Pope has refused to answer their questions, despite the moral and pastoral chaos that ensued throughout the whole of Christendom as priests, bishops, and cardinals interpreted his teachings in completely contradictory ways. Some allowed civilly-divorced-and-remarried Catholics living in habitual adultery to receive Holy Communion. Some did not. read more

It will not openly confront Francis but will take the form of letter or document signed by Cardinal Burke and other prelates, who in a magisterial way will correct those parts of Amoris Laetitia who contradict the Catholic Faith. read more

According to the anti-Catholic Italian paper Repubblica there is an “agreement” between the leftwing Italian government and the Vatican to introduce the birthright citizenship in Italy.

The Italian journalist Antonio Socci comments, “Where are now the leftwing protesters who complained about ‘interference’ in politics any time the Church spoke out in favor of the sacredness of life?”

He further points out that Pope Francis, when Italy was about to introduce gay pseudo-marriage, refused to take a position “because he did not want to interfere in politics.” read more

September 19, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The revocation of Fr. James Martin, SJ’s invitation to speak at Catholic University of America’s Theological College has sent out shock waves in the world of Catholic academics.

Rank and file Catholics wonder, “Is it really the duty of Catholic institutions to provide a platform for messages antithetical to the Gospel?” read more

WASHINGTON, D.C., September 19, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The withdrawal of Jesuit Father James Martin’s appearance next month at Catholic University of America-affiliated Theological College stirred reaction that continued into Monday and included San Diego Bishop Robert McElroy defending the controversial priest.

McElroy was among those who labeled reports and commentary on Father Martin’s LGBT stances as homophobia, censorship, “verbal violence,” and being a “cancer of vilification” in the Church. The bishop said Father Martin’s critics were overemphasizing chastity and they resent Pope Francis’ call for Catholics to move away from judging others. read more

The validity of the commandments and of the entire moral law is at stake in the Church according to Bishop Athanasius Schneider.

Talking to onepeterfive.com he asserted that “the Pope is himself tolerating a wide dissemination of obvious errors of faith and of grave abuses of the sacraments (like the admittance of unrepentant adulterers to the sacraments)”.

Schneider compares this to a ship in a stormy sea, in which the captain ignores the obvious dangers, while the majority of his officers wrap themselves in silence, saying: “All is just fine on the sinking ship”. The few officers, who raise their voices, are grotesquely and unjustly criticized by their colleagues. read more
