“The secular clergy will leave much to be desired because priests will become careless in their sacred duties. Lacking the divine compass, they will stray from the road traced by God for the priestly ministry, and they will become attached to wealth and riches, which they will unduly strive to attain. How the Church will suffer during this dark night! Lacking a prelate and a father (Bishop of Rome/Pope) to guide them …many priests will lose their spirit, placing their souls in great danger.” The poor priestly souls that would be left to uphold the Church would suffer greatly. “Thus I make it known to you that from the end of the 19th century and shortly after the middle of the 20th century… It will be difficult to receive the Sacrament of Baptism, and also that of Confirmation… The Catholic spirit will rapidly decay; the precious light of the Faith will gradually be extinguished…”
Our Lady of Good Success
An important prince of the Church has come to say, in a few trustworthy persons, that these are probably the most dramatic months of the entire history of the Church. That as well, in two thousand years, has spent huge storms. Escapes the more serious the situation. Even if the media are passionate all’infuocata dispute that announces to the Synod, which will start on October 5, do not have well grasped the stakes. To understand what is happening in the Church must exit from the luxurious, self Vatican court of Santa Marta, populated by some Vatican correspondents, in ecclesiastical career, waiters and sycophants. You have to go in true existential suburbs.
In fact, just to be there – after the explosive report of Cardinal Kasper at the consistory of February (the report on the Eucharist for divorced and remarried desired by Bergoglio) – we received some enlightening words. I am a PIME missionary, Father Carlo Buzzi, 71, of Milan, for forty years in Bangladesh, one of the world’s poorest. His letters were published by Sandro Magister in his famous site on the Church. Father Buzzi is an extraordinary man of God, has dedicated his life to bringing the Good News to the poor, for they have built schools, clinics, chapels and rebuilt them when they gave them destroyed. Often risking their lives. From the outskirts of Kasper commented on the report to the Consistory as follows: “If we proceed on the path laid out by Cardinal Kasper will do considerable damage: 1) You make the Church superficial and accommodating; 2) You will have to deny the infallibility of the Chair of Peter because it is as if all the previous popes are wrong; 3) You must take us for fools all those who gave their lives as martyrs to defend this sacrament. ”
Father Buzzi has added some practical considerations: “There are thousands of Catholics who die each year, persecuted for their faith, and that we’re good we care stubbornly giving communion to remarried. How many martyrs there were in England to maintain the integrity of the faith, the sacrament of marriage! Woe if the Catholic Church is put on the trail of the Anglican Church. ” It would be devastating. So says the old missionary, “do not give rise to schisms because of something so minor.” Father Buzzi notes that “if we give communion to remarried, it means that you do not even need to go to confession.” From here a waterfall coming down the sacraments and commandments. So the Church herself: “In this way blows up everything. Old and New Testament. ” Says the old missionary: “I want to remain Catholic. I do not want to become an Anglican or Baptist. ” Finally his dazzling conclusion: “We see that the states and large organizations are all subjected to a mysterious force that inclines to evil. The only institution that does not bend and keeps the head, stops on the true human values, it is the Catholic Church. Hold on and do not intorbidiamo our fountain. One day, when they are tired and thirsty, so many people will know where to find some ‘fresh water’. Unfortunately pope Bergoglio instead of listening to these men of God, speaking from the suburbs existential prefer conversing with a powerful guru in the living room as bourgeois or Scalfari – it happened at this time – with the darling of the salons of the European left, Alexis Tsipras, the leader the party of the radical left SYRIZA greek. Yesterday, an important prince of the Church, Cardinal Pell, he used the same arguments to Father Buzzi.
He asked for the Synod, “the reaffirmation of Catholic doctrine” and stressed that the issue of communion for divorced and remarried is – even statistically – a minor thing, but it has become a “symbol” that is, an ideological banner. It is “a stake in the confrontation between what remains of Christianity in Europe and an aggressive neo-paganism. All opponents of Christianity that the Church would capitulate on this point. ” It is very important to emphasize this, because really what it seems to innovators press is not so much the condition of suffering from certain pairs (in this case percorrerebbero other avenues have already been identified), but the fact of the reversal of Catholic doctrine through the so-called “practical pastoral. ” The same position of Pell, contrary to Kasper and the “revolution,” is shared by the most influential cardinals who have made public pronouncements sensational. Beginning with the prefect of the former Holy Office Muller, who – in controversy with Kasper – has just published a book and participated in the famous book of the “five cardinal” (Caffara Muller, Brandmuller, Burke and De Paolis). That so annoyed Kasper and Bergoglio. Other authoritative pronouncements in defense of Catholic doctrine and against the ‘tipping’ came from the Cardinals Collins, Martin Ouellet and Scola.
All important names. It refers only to public pronouncements, because the Consistory has been estimated that as many as 85 percent of the cardinals have rejected the thesis of Kasper. The protest which, however, represent Bergoglio: “I (I spoke) twice with the Holy Father. I all agreed with him. He agreed. They know I did not do these things from me. I agreed with the Pope. ” In fact it is Bergoglio who wanted one speaker to the Consistory and it is he who has enthusiastically praised when the vast majority of the cardinals rejected. Kasper has reason to indicate in Bergoglio the leader of the “revolutionaries”. The rest has never been refuted. Bergoglio already bishop of Buenos Aires, in grave disobedience to the Pope and the Church, authorized to give the Eucharist to all. The father said quietly Pepe Di Paola, the famous “street priest” very close to him, in an interview with “Resto del Carlino”, 13 March 2014 And then, as Bishop of Rome, April 23, 2014, Bergoglio made the famous phone call to lady of Argentina, with a married civilly divorced, during which he told her to “quietly take Communion because he is not doing anything wrong.” Thus creating a sensational case. So Bergoglio has long been out of its own way, different from the doctrine and the magisterium of the Church. This is why the situation is explosive. Never in the history of the Church had happened that most of the cardinals were to take public positions against a reversal of the teaching and practice of the Church that has been proposed by Cardinal Kasper, but which in reality is headed Bergoglio same. It never happened that a bishop of Rome propugnasse a thesis that goes against the whole tradition and the teaching authority of the Church. But to make this reversal – as Cardinal Pell said – it is simply “impossible” (…)
