Papal Praise For Kasper and Progressive Anathema Against Doctrine of the Faith

What is brewing in the preparation of the Synod of Bishops on behind the scenes together? Is the convening of the Synod of Bishops only a  pretext to cap the sacrament of marriage? Are the remarried divorcees only the first step to a “new morality”? Was this topic remarried divorcees a secret ballot surrender  in the case Jorge Mario Bergoglios? The answer to these questions is not available. It is possible, however, to summarize the events of the past month and a half.

(Rome) A few days ago, Pope Francis joined the office of the Under Secretary of the Synod of Bishops  for the first time with the Episcopal dignity. In an accompanying letter to the Secretary of the Synod of Bishops, Cardinal Lorenzo Baldisseri, the Pope who wants to strengthen “collegiality” in the Church as “signs of the times”. An intention, which is clearly expressed to the bishop by the imposition of cardinal status on the secretary  and the appointment of the Under Secretary. This is also a step towards the preparation of the first Synod of Bishops of this pontificate, which will take place in early October and will be looked to in the Church with mixed feelings. It’s about the fear that a synodal coup could, if not in this first part of the Synod of Bishops, then in the second part, which is scheduled for autumn 2015, bypass parts of Catholic teaching on marriage and undermine the sacrament of marriage. The formula was supplied by the German theologian and Cardinal Walter Kasper. It is understandable given: Changing the formal doctrine untouched by a new practice. Specifically on the Kaspers program is the approval of remarried divorcees to the sacraments. Since the individual lives in a permanent state of public sin that remarried divorcees are excluded from receiving communion. If it goes according  to the Episcopal Conferences of Germany and Switzerland to the reception of communion will be possible under one or the other new formulae.

Egyptian demands Israel pay reparations for Biblical plagues!!!

Death of the first born sons.

Possibly disregarding that the Biblical ten plagues were brought down on the Egyptians roughly 3,500 years ago, a popular columnist in the North African nation is calling on his government to take the State of Israel to court for compensation, as reported by the Jerusalem-based news portal Israel Today on April 11, 2014.

Publishing his demands right before the Jewish High Holy Days of Passover (known to Jews as Pesach), popular and respected Cairo-based newspaperman Ahmad al-Gamal raised more than a few Hebrew eyebrows when he blamed “the Children of Israel” instead of Pharaoh for the various plagues that were of … well, Biblical proportions.

As cited in the Book of Exodus, for refusing to free the Hebrews from slavery, the Almighty visited the following plagues upon Egypt:

  • Drinking water turned into blood (דָם): Ex. 7:14–25
  • Multitude of frogs (צְּפַרְדֵּעַ): Ex. 7:25–8:11
  • Lice infestation (כִּנִּים): Ex. 8:16–19
  • Swarms of biting flies (עָרוֹב): Ex. 8:20–32
  • Death of livestock (דֶּבֶר): Ex. 9:1–7
  • Men and surviving cattle stricken with infectious boils (שְׁחִין): Ex. 9:8–12
  • Storms of fire (בָּרָד): Ex. 9:13–35
  • Locusts destroy crops (אַרְבֶּה): Ex. 10:1–20
  • Total darkness (חוֹשֶך): Ex. 10:21–29
  • Death of firstborn sons (מַכַּת בְּכוֹרוֹת): Ex. 11:1–12:36

As al-Gamal argued, it’s been the Egyptian people who have suffered for well over three millennia, so by his reckoning, the Jews owe him. Without due consideration that the statute of limitations may have already passed, the hostile Hamitic complained “We demand that the State of Israel pay compensation for the ten plagues that our forefathers in Egypt suffered thousands of years ago as a result of the curses of the Jewish forefathers.” Not quite done yet, al-Gamal may be under the impression that the plagues have been continuous since approximately 1,500 BC when he penned “What is written in the Torah is that Pharaoh discriminated against the children of Israel. What have we to do with it? We therefore need not suffer!

According to the American Lawyers Quarterly, the standard Egyptian statute of limitations is normally between five to fifteen years. Nonetheless, al-Gamal demands the Jewish State be brought before the docket due to the Tribe of Israel wandering in the wilderness for 40 years “the Children of Israel enjoyed our goods, which they stole before abandoning us.

As cited by Israel Today, a handful of Israeli pundits have fired back at al-Gamal that possibly their country could and would consider reparations, just as soon as Egypt pays them back for making slaves of the Hebrew people 3,500 years ago.

Arizona Border Fence . . . Speaks Volumes About Violations That Cardinal Overlooks

Image

PHOENIX — There wasn’t too much to disagree with in the words of the homily that Boston’s Sean Cardinal O’Malley, OFM Cap., delivered April 1 during a Mass at the high border fence in Nogales, Ariz. But what remained unsaid?

Many people are suffering and deserve Christian compassion, he said, giving examples of people seeking better lives.
The cardinal did condemn some people harshly twice in his prepared remarks, though. Drawing his displeasure were “the xenophobic ranting of a segment of the population” and “the bigotry and xenophobia of the Know-Nothings.” He wasn’t referring to illegal aliens.
What O’Malley didn’t say, however, was spoken most powerfully by the presence of the high, slatted metal border fence. It’s there for an overwhelming reason.
And it still will be there even if the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops attains the “comprehensive immigration reform” it seeks, and that O’Malley and some brother bishops prayed for in Arizona on April 1.
Illegal immigration long has been utterly out of control. The fence stands there out of sheer necessity, to try to deter additional uncounted illegal immigrants after tens of millions have been encouraged by governments to cascade, wave after wave, into the United States.

The sufferings of American citizens due to the crime and chaos that loom like a tsunami over the porous border also were absent from the cardinal’s prepared text. But that burden is never far from Southwesterners’ minds.
After the National Journal posted a typically liberal attack on the Grand Canyon State on March 31, “How the Right Hijacked Arizona,” a reader replied that conservative politicians are popular because they respond to “the border, the cartels, the coyotes, and all the crime that happens because of them.”
People of all political stripes here, he added, get tired of reading about a cartel shootout and a smuggler’s van rolling over on the interstate.
On April 1 Joe Arpaio, the sheriff of Phoenix’s Maricopa County, wrote Washington to ask why Immigration and Customs Enforcement apparently keeps releasing onto the streets illegal immigrants arrested for serious violations by local authorities instead of deporting them.
Arpaio wrote, “This flagrant disregard of the law, or incompetence in enforcing it, endangers both my deputies, other police officers, and the entire community.”
On April 2, the Arizona Daily Independent posted a story that began by saying the “nation is slowly awakening to a truth the ranchers have known for some time; the border is not secure, and the Mexican cartels are in control since the U.S. government relinquished it.”
Two days earlier, the Independent posted a routine story about illegal immigrants being abandoned by coyotes, including one man who said he was forced into a dry well by armed smugglers when he refused to carry a bundle of narcotics into the U.S.
Christ definitely desires His followers to aid those in need. He doesn’t say that anyone who hopes to force his way into the U.S. must be granted residency or citizenship here.
When Jesus condemns those who don’t show love for their fellows, He surely also has in mind the oligarchs and politicians in the home countries who tell their brethren to go far away and let the U.S. take responsibility for them.
To hear the cardinal and many of his brother bishops speak on the necessity to allow immigration, one could be misled into thinking that the U.S. allows little or no legal immigration, instead of already having a highly generous immigration system.
O’Malley and Tucson’s liberal Catholic bishop, Gerald Kicanas, distributed the Eucharist in Arizona to hands stretching through the slatted fence from the Mexican side. This made a strong photograph, and also made a strong argument this was a stunt that could be regarded by critics as serious disrespect of the sacrament.
Nogales has its fence, but people freely pass from country to country through legal crossings. And each of the two countries has its own Catholic churches. There’s no need to stretch arms through a barrier for Communion as if one’s trying to catch a baseball in the stands at a stadium.
A conservative Arizona Republican state senator, Al Melvin, told The Wanderer on April 2 that the prelates’ Nogales Mass was likely to cause more confusion and raise false hopes.
“As a Catholic, I think the bishops are being irresponsible because they are adding more chaos to the border, not less. And their actions encourage more unlawful behavior, which leads to more border crossings and ultimately to more lives being lost in the desert, not less,” he said.
Melvin’s gubernatorial campaign issued a statement saying, “If the Catholic Church or anyone else wants to improve the lives of those in other countries, they should spend their time and energy exporting American values and systems to nations that so clearly need them.”
An Associated Press story said Melvin said “the clergy visit will do little to solve problems on the border. He said developing private-sector jobs in northern Mexico and securing the border to prevent drug and human trafficking are needed to bring stability to both sides of the international boundary.”

Prudential Judgments

Marguerite Telford, the communications director for the Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies, which favors carefully controlled legal immigration, told The Wanderer:
“As a Catholic, I am saddened and alarmed by the bishops’ use of the Holy Eucharist as a photo opportunity to push for amnesty for illegal aliens. As a person informed on immigration issues, I am appalled by the bishops’ lack of understanding of how their actions encourage foreigners to illegally cross our border, leaving their family members behind, to come wait out an amnesty which may never happen.
“Do Catholic Mexican nationals not have access to priests in Mexico? If so, the U.S. bishops should be working with the cardinals, archbishops, and bishops of Mexico to find a solution,” Telford said.
“But distributing Holy Communion to random hands coming through a fence by individuals standing at the border in anticipation of breaking American laws demeans the Catholic Church.”
She said that granting “amnesty” for many millions of illegal entrants “is a complicated political issue that requires an understanding of the resulting fiscal, security, labor, and legal consequences. There is a distinction between fundamental moral issues and ‘prudential’ judgments in regard to complex social and political issues. Unlike abortion and euthanasia, immigration is not a key theological issue that obliges Catholics to support the bishops’ political stance.”
On the other side, champions of “immigration reform” continued to speak as if failure to grant it to every possible person means the U.S. callously betrays its ideals.
The chairman of the USCCB Committee on Migration, Bishop Eusebio Elizondo, said sternly: “We exhibit our own indifference when we minimize or ignore this suffering and death, as if these people are not worth our attention. It degrades us as a nation. Hopefully by highlighting the harsh impact the system has on our fellow human beings, our elected officials will be moved to reform it.”
And a Catholic News Service story said the bishops in Nogales prayed “for compassion and for a return to ideals that welcome immigrants.”

Pope ignores prepared Palm Sunday homily, speaks off-the-cuff before posing for selfies!!!

Pope Francis (C) greets faithful taking souvenir photos with him as he arrives to lead Palm Sunday Mass in Saint Peter Square in Vatican City, 13 April 2014. Palm Sunday for Roman Catholic devotees symbolically marks the biblical account of the entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem, signaling the start of the Holy Week before Easter.

I am so humble Bergoglio proves once again, (Palm Sunday of all days) truly how he is NOT!!! All about Bergoglio. It is suppose to be ALL about CHRIST!!! Haereticus!!!

 Absolutely disgusting!!!!

 Pope ignores prepared Palm Sunday homily, speaks off-the-cuff before posing for selfies!!!

VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis, marking Palm Sunday in a packed St. Peter’s Square, ignored his prepared homily and spoke entirely off-the-cuff in a remarkable departure from practice. Later, he continued to stray from the script by hopping off his popemobile to pose for “selfies” with young people and also sipping tea passed to him from the crowd.

In his homily, Francis called on people, himself included, to look into their own hearts to see how they are living their lives.

“Has my life fallen asleep?” Francis asked after listening to a Gospel account of how Jesus’ disciples fell asleep shortly before he was betrayed by Judas before his crucifixion.

“Am I like Pontius Pilate, who, when he sees the situation is difficult, washes my hand

He sounded tired, frequently pausing to catch his breath, as he spoke for about 15 minutes in his homily during Palm Sunday Mass, which solemnly opens Holy Week for the Roman Catholic Church.

“Where is my heart?” the pope asked, pinpointing that as the “question which accompanies us” throughout Holy Week.

Francis seemed to regain his wind after the 2 1/2 hour ceremony. He shed his red vestments atop his plain white cassock, chatted amiably with cardinals dressed more formally than he at that point. Then he posed for “selfies” with young people from Rio de Janeiro who had carried a large cross in the square.

He had barely climbed aboard his open-topped popemobile when he spotted Polish youths. They, too, were clamouring for a “selfie” with a pope, and he hopped off, not even waiting for the vehicle to fully stop, to oblige them. In another moment in the pope’s long tour of the square, the Vatican’s security chief poured herbal mate tea from a thermos, thrust toward the pontiff by someone in the crowd, into a mate cup, also held out by an admirer, and passed the cup to Francis for a sip.

In a crowd of around 100,000 Romans, tourists and pilgrims, people clutched olive tree branches, tall palm fronds or tiny braided palm leaves shaped like crosses that were blessed by Francis at the start of the ceremony.

Francis used a wooden pastoral staff carved by Italian prison inmates, who donated it to him. The pope wants to put people on the margins of life at the centre of the church’s attention.

Modernist Benedictine “Monastery” to Host Rabbi Promoting Aberrosexuality April 28th

Image

Anathema sit!  Haereticus!!!  


Edit:  St. John’s Abbey at Collegeville is probably one of the most vile and evil places in the world, made so much more so by the fact that they misrepresent themselves as good, as Catholic.

They habitually return to lap up their vomit. No public reprimand will change the way they think or the patterns long established here since before the Council, they will continue attacking the Church from behind a Catholic name. No matter how many outrages they’ve done, many of which are publicly known, as well as the endemic failure this institution suffers in terms of its decline in numbers and fervor, no one really stops them, they suffer no visitation, no interdict,  but they enjoy full recognition by the Catholic Church, despite all of their frequent outrages and insults to Christ. 

It’s not enough to say that they will die out. Average age of the monks is nearing 70. Shouldn’t something be done for their souls, and the souls of the many students who are placed in their spiritual care year after year by largely unsuspecting families?

These Social Media Nuns Are Winning The Internet –

Singing sister Christina Scuccia  is a product of Newchurch Bergoglio!! 
Pre-Vatican II Popes would never had allow this ABOMINATION!!!
Modernism ” synthesis of all heresies.”
St. Pius X

(The Huffington Post)  –Sr. Cristina Scuccia took the Internet by storm last month with her awesome singing skills on Italy’s “The Voice.” But she’s not the only nun using modern, and even mundane means of communication to evangelize.

On Thursday, the Atlantic profiled Sr. Helena Burns, “The Nun Who Got Addicted to Twitter.” Burns calls herself a “media nun,” which she defines as “A woman religious with a calling to communicate the word of Christ, in any way she can.” She has 14,000 followers on Twitter.

Sister Helena Burns

Burns’ superior, Sr. Irene, has an even more creative way of reaching out to people through the Internet — she’s a gamer nun. Burns said, “She gets her own little ministry out there. Once people get to know she’s a nun, they have questions, or they ask for prayers. But you do have to clean up your language when Sister Irene’s out there.”

Imagine Sisters is a web movement raising awareness about nuns and the important work they do in a thoroughly 21st-century fashion. Their Facebook page is full of nun memes and explains “Imagine Sisters is a web movement that aims to inspire the imaginations of young women to consider the beautiful call to consecrated life as a sister. With the guiding truth that one sister can change the world, Imagine Sisters strives to connect the world with sisters passionately embracing their call to serve the Lord. “

Mary Beth Baker, an aspiring nun, turned to social media last week in order to pay off her student loans. The 28-year-old was $25,000 in debt, which prevented her from entering the convent, so she set up a crowdfunding page to get donations from the Internet. Today she tweeted:
 
Mary Beth Baker

The outpouring of support has been incredible and so humbling. I am finished fundraising. Thanks for everything! God bless you. 

The Pope’s killing it on social media too. Last year he was named the most influential world leader on Twitter, and he recently started using Instagram.

Gay Anglican priest marries his boyfriend. He’ll be the first of many

Well, that didn’t take long. As my colleague Edward Malnick reports, a gay Church of England priest – a canon, no less – today married his boyfriend. Canon Jeremy Pemberton, 58, a divorced hospital chaplain and father of five, wed his long-term partner Laurence Cunnington, 51. We’re not told where, but obviously it wasn’t in a C of E church. That’s against the law. But they may well be able to have their marriage blessed in church because that’s only “against the rules” as opposed to illegal.

Campaigners predicted that Canon Pemberton would be the first of many. I think they’re right. After all, it’s not as if Mr Pemberton’s boss, the Bishop of Lincoln, Christopher Lowson, is handing him over to the Inquisition. Over at the Mail, my old friend Jonathan Petre reports that “Bishop Lowson confirmed he had told Canon Pemberton of the House of Bishops’ statement [telling gay priests not to marry] but would not say if he was planning disciplinary action”.

I’m no expert on Anglican canon law, but I’d guess that the punishment facing Mr Pemberton is the withdrawal of his licence to officiate at services (he doesn’t have a parish). Technically he could be defrocked, but that would involve a messy legal process… by which time other priests will have tied the knot. The Rev Andrew Cain, for example, who wasthe first clergyman to declare his intention to marry, and who explained why in our Telegram podcast (click here).

That will be an interesting case. Mr Cain is the Vicar of St Mary with All Souls in Kilburn and St James in West Hampstead and known to parishioners as “Father Andrew” – ie, he’s an Anglo-Catholic. North London is full of High Church priests with same-sex partners. If only a few of them defy their bishop and get married, then the Diocese of London faces a public relations as well as a legal nightmare.

Likewise, Chichester. I once went to a party in Brighton where a bishop turned up with his much younger Italian boyfriend. None of the other clergy present were bishops but they were all gay. Those were the days of the “gin, lace and backbiting” subculture, which wasn’t a great advertisement for gay men or the C of E. The culture now is more open, but many homosexual clergy are still uncomfortable about their relationships – they feel that the General Synod forces them to be hypocritical or secretive. This is a Church, after all, that enjoins celibacy on gay priests but not gay laity, a compromise that I can’t see surviving for much longer.

To be clear: it is now perfectly legal for Church of England clergy to marry their gay partners. It’s only illegal for the established Church to stage any same-sex wedding services itself. But if your bishop turns a blind eye you can have the next best thing. A lesbian priest can marry her partner at the register office, then find an accommodating vicar who’ll bless the couple in church.

Pope poses for ‘selfies’ after Palm Sunday homily

 
Pope Francis poses for pictures with faithful at the end of a Palm Sunday service in St. Peter’s Square, at the Vatican on Sunday. / 

VATICAN CITY (AP) – Pope Francis, marking Palm Sunday in a packed St. Peter’s Square, ignored his prepared homily and spoke entirely off-the-cuff in a remarkable departure from practice. Later, he hopped off his popemobile to pose for “selfies” with young people in the crowd.

Francis wore red vestments, symbolizing blood shed by the crucified Jesus.

Holy Week culminates next Sunday with Easter Mass, also in St. Peter’s Square. Many faithful will remain in Rome, while others will pour into the city for the April 27 canonization of two popes, John Paul II and John XXIII. Francis noted that John Paul’s long-time aide, now Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz of Krakow, Poland, had come to Rome.

Francis noted he’ll be making a pilgrimage to South Korea this summer, with the key event, church World Youth Day celebrations on Aug. 15 in Daejeon

WAY OF THE CROSS MEDITATIONS – creating “bridges of solidarity”, “winning the fear of isolation, job insecurity, unemployment, financial speculation , suicides entrepreneurs!!!!

UNBELIEVABLE!!!   MEDITATIONS on economic crisis, unemployment, ISLAMIC IMMIGRANTS, TOXIC WASTE and OVERCROWDING in PRISONS!!!!  Parce nobis, Domine!

Image

Good Friday – April 18 – the Colosseum, the Way of the Cross led by Pope invites us to reflect on the economic crisis and its severe consequences on the stories of immigrants, on the evils that tear to many young lives. 
The texts of the meditations – which will be published Tuesday by Libreria Editrice Vaticana – were written by Msgr. Giancarlo Bregantini, Archbishop of Campobasso-Boiano, that in the 14 stations of the Passion has brought the plagues of today’s world and all the dramas known as shepherd of the Diocese of Southern Italy: the deaths caused by the toxic waste, the conditions of detainees in overcrowded prisons. In the service of 
Tiziana Campisi advances of contents: In the wood of the cross of Christ, we are the sins of man, the injustices produced by the economic crisis, “with its serious social consequences,” such as job insecurity, unemployment, financial speculation , suicides entrepreneurs, corruption and wear. Jesus carries on Calvary, to teach that life should be lived not in unrighteousness, but by creating “bridges of solidarity”, “winning the fear of isolation, recovering the estimate for the policy” and looking for common solutions to social problems .written In the meditations for the Via Crucis on Good Friday at the Colosseum, Msgr. Giancarlo Bregantini brought the plagues of today’s world. In its reflections are the dramas of immigrants, the wounds of women who are victims of violence, trauma abused children, the pain of those mothers who lost their children in wars, into the abyss of drugs or alcohol in the whirlpool. But Jesus falling three times on the way to Golgotha, the Archbishop of Campobasso-Boiano a glimpse of the certainty of hope in the test, the intense prayer to God lightens every cross staff. And so we learn from Christ to accept the fragility, not to be discouraged by any failure. Instead, Simon of Cyrene, the man who helped the Son of God to carry the cross, today tells us that to meet each other, offer help, creates fraternity, and to discover God in every human being. And there are also the realities of the South of Italy in the Via Crucis of Msgr. Bregantini: children killed by cancers caused by the fires of toxic waste, the needs of those seeking asylum, but are looking for a new home behind closed doors. The last of today’s society are there in the various stations of the Way of the Cross, where the sufferings of Christ resemble those of prisoners in overcrowded prisons – with too much bureaucracy and a slow justice – or in gloomy prisons, where torture is sometimes still a practice. But there is also the Church in the Passion of Jesus, it is a symbol of his tunic remained intact, which refers to the unit to recover, in harmony to achieve a “patient journey, in a peace craft, built every day “through the fraternity, reconciliation and mutual forgiveness. And if excruciating has through the centuries the image of Jesus from the Cross in the arms of Mary, the other says this icon called “Pieta”: “Death does not break love. Because love is stronger than death … Who is ready to sacrifice his life for Christ, will find it. Transfigured after death. “

No Catholic Crucifix on Palm Sunday for Bergoglio!!!!

Image

Hideous non- Catholic Crucifixes Bergoglio has chosen in the past rather than A Catholic Crucifix. Unbelievable!! 

 

Papa Francesco tomorrow will march in the streets 
St. Peter with the pastoral staff given to him by the inmates of San Remo

Another direct attack from Bergoglio!  Another Non-Catholic Crucifix without our Lord!!   Kyrie eleison!!

 What are the symbols at the bottom?? 

(La Stampa)  –   Papa Francesco tomorrow in St. Peter’s Square, will lead the celebration of Palm Sunday with the pastoral staff of olive wood made for him by some prison inmates in Sanremo with the assistance of the Cooperative de The Way.  

The Pope has promised to executives of the same The Way that yesterday, in Santa Marta, the papal residence, have made a gift to the Pope of the stick (which, by the Pope, is called “splint”) that the detainees have made a cross on top, coat of arms papala in half and stick behind another emblem that represents the tradition of the “parmureli” Easter Sanremo. 

The Pope, in addition to the stick, will also have a “maxi parmurelu” come from San Remo, up nearly 3 meters. The big “parmurelu” is the work of skilled craftsmen who hand down the darkened ancient olive trees of the plot between Sanremo and Bordighera. In Rome went even further 200 “parmureli” smaller that will be allocated to the cardinals and bishops and more than 2,500 mini-parmureli that will be distributed to the faithful in St. Peter’s Square. Everything in the tradition, due to sanremasco Bresca captain in 1586 he received, for himself and his descendants, by Pope Sixtus V, the perpetual privilege of donating every year, the palm trees to the Vatican for Easter as a sign of gratitude for having saved from the fall (with his providential cry dialect sanremasco “aiga pe ropes”) of the obelisk in St. Peter’s, which still stands on the square and that during the lifting operations, was about to collapse due to the overheating of the strings who raised him. Bresca had had the courage to shatter the silence absolute ban imposed on pain of death, from the Pope during lifting operations.The tradition continued for centuries, was stopped in the ’70s and was taken in 2003 by the work of the Municipality of Sanremo, the Cooperativa de The Way and the Center for Studies and Research on the Palm.
