“I learned it in the press.” Even FrankenPope’s memory raises dubia

“I learned it in the press.” Even FrankenPope’s memory raises dubia

[Google translation of « Je l’ai appris dans la presse ». Même la mémoire du pape soulève des « dubia »]

Sandro Magister – 6/22/18

On 17 June, during his meeting with Philip Pullella of Reuters, Pope Francis said something about the “dubia” that was submitted to him in 2016 by four cardinals.

Here is what Pullella reports:

“Francois said he heard about the letter from the Cardinals who criticized him ‘in the newspapers … a way of doing things that is, let me say it, not very ecclesial, but we all make mistakes” ». read more

Germán Arana, the Jesuit Who Advised FrankenPope Badly

Germán Arana, the Jesuit Who Advised FrankenPope Badly

Sandro Magister – 6/18/18

The first head to roll, in the work of rebuilding the Catholic hierarchy of Chile that has been set in motion by Pope Francis, has been the most predictable: that of Juan de la Cruz Barros Madrid, removed as bishop of Osorno.

But there is something that does not add up, in this operation and in its backstory.

The photo above is a clue to this. It was taken at the cathedral of Osorno on March 21, 2015, the day of the turbulent entrance into the diocese of Bishop Barros, who was made the target of serious accusations of unfitness but strenuously defended by the pope. And who is next to him, in liturgical vestments and with the act of appointment in his hand, while the protest rages all around? A Jesuit who is not Chilean but Spanish, Germán Arana, a friend and spiritual guide of Barros but above all one of the most intimate confidants of Jorge Mario Bergoglio. read more

Association of U.S. Catholic Priests (AUSCP): Cog in the International Heresy Machine

[Has counterparts in other countries (such as the Association of Catholic Priests in Ireland) which influence Catholic opinion and policies there (such as the Irish group waffling on the morality of abortion and “abstained” on the recent referenda on legalizing sodomarriage and abortion)! – AQ Tom]

AUSCP Cog 01

Since November of last year, the Lepanto Institute has been focusing its attention on the actions of a small, but influential cabal of heretical priests seeking to upend the Glory of the Holy Catholic Church.  But the Association of United States Catholic Priests (AUSCP) is only one piece of the puzzle.  We have discovered that the AUSCP is a part of a much larger and more global effort to spread the heresy of Modernism throughout the Church. read more

FrankenPope: German Proposal on [Sacrilegeous] Intercommunion Will Be “Guiding Document”

FrankenPope: German Proposal on [Sacrilegeous] Intercommunion Will Be “Guiding Document”

en.news – 6/22/18

On his flight from Geneva to Rome (June 21), Pope Francis commented on negated the letter of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith against the German bishops’ proposal on allowing Protestants to receive Communion.

Francis stressed that the bishops should “study the thing further” as the German proposal “will be a guiding document so that every diocesan bishop can work with what canon law already permits.” For obvious theological reasons, canon law prohibits intercommunion. read more

Boston Catholic Insider – 6/22/18

In the wake of Cardinal McCarrick’s being removed from public ministry over a credible claim of sexual abuse of a minor — plus reports of past sexual activity with adults and associated settlements – it’s disgraceful that the Boston Pilot promoted a puff piece today highlighting McCarrick’s service to the Catholic Church. read more

ROME, June 20, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) — Did Cardinal Lorenzo Baldisseri, the lead organizer of the Vatican’s upcoming Youth Synod, knowingly make a false statement or was he simply mistaken?

At a June 19 press conference to present the working document for the October 3-28 Youth Synod, the Secretary General of the Synod of Bishops was asked why the phrase “LGBT youth” was used in the Vatican document. read more

Reporters: Cardinal McCarrick’s abuse was widely-known ‘secret’ for years

June 21, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Cardinal Theodore McCarrick’s removal from public ministry over allegations he sexually abused a minor may turn out to be a watershed moment in the Church’s sex abuse crisis, shining more light on both the homosexual element and cover-up of the scandal.

After news broke Wednesday that the Vatican had banned McCarrick from ministry, numerous reports emerged saying that McCarrick’s abuse has been a widely-known “secret” for years among journalists and in the Church, and that even Rome had been made aware. read more

Rome conference to expose heresy of Modernism

Rome conference to expose heresy of Modernism

ROME, June 23, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) — Imagine that the trials of the current pontificate, the machinations of the German bishops, and Fr. James Martin’s controversial statements on homosexuality were to end tomorrow.

Perhaps for a time some would feel that Mordor had been destroyed and sunshine and freedom restored to the Shire, but the current crisis in the Church would not be over.

Why? Because controversial passages in Amoris Laetitia, the German Bishops’ intercommunion proposal, and Fr. James Martin’s watering down of the Church’s teaching on homosexuality are only symptoms of a deeper problem. Health will not be restored to Christ’s Mystical Body until the deeper problem is identified, addressed, and healed. read more

Cardinal Raymond Burke has commented on Pope Francis’ claim that he heard about the Dubia “from the newspaper”.

“The late Cardinal Carlo Caffarra personally delivered the letter containing the Dubia to the Papal Residence, and at the same time to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, on September 19, 2016, as he also delivered subsequent correspondence of the four Cardinals regarding the Dubia”, Burke told lifesitenews.com (June 21). read more

While jihadists across the globe are busy slitting throats, American school children are taught that jihad is an “inner struggle” and Islam means “peace.” While Muslim rape gangs destroy the lives of teenaged girls in England, American teenagers learn that Muhammad was a champion of women’s rights. And although American students are taught all the gruesome details of the Atlantic slave trade, they learn little if anything about the Arab slave trade which took many more lives. read more

Neo-Catholic Robby George Says We Should Believe Jebbie Jim Martin

Neo-Catholic Robby George Says We Should Believe Jebbie Jim Martin

Image result for robert-george-james-martin

[“Birds of a feather gather together”] It was a shocking photo. There was Jesuit James Martin with his arm around Professor Robert George of Princeton, both of them grinning ear to ear.Professor George published the photo on his Twitter feed and it appeared this beacon of orthodoxy had given his imprimatur to the heterodoxy of James Martin, who has quite famously opposed Church teaching on homosexuality.

But, it turns out this was much more than a chummy photo. In subsequent Tweets, George made it clear he has fully accepted Martin’s claims that Martin has never “challenged” Church teaching and never would. Professor George said, “…it would be churlish for Fr. Martin’s critics not to take yes for an answer.”

The photo was taken at a three-day confab at Georgetown University called “Overcoming Polarization” that was said to bring together different types of Catholics, so-called liberals and conservatives, in order to heal or talk past the polarization in the Church. The effort was organized by John Carr of Georgetown, who was the long-time peace and justice person at the US Conference of Catholic Bishops. read more

Time to Preach to the Non-Converted on Abortion

Time to Preach to the Non-Converted on Abortion 6/21/18 Filip Mazurczak writes that no one says he’s personally opposed to human trafficking, but it’s better to have it safe, legal, and rare. So why on abortion?

Those who believe that the right to life is a fundamental human right have experienced two major defeats on two continents in less than a month. On May 25, two-thirds of Ireland’s population voted to strike down a constitutional amendment protecting the right to life, paving the way for what the Irish government has promised will be one of Europe’s most aggressively pro-abortion regimes. Then last week Argentina’s Congress voted by a 129-125 margin to legalize abortion up through the fourteenth week of pregnancy (for the bill to become law, it needs to pass the Chamber of Deputies and be signed by the nation’s president). read more
