SUBJECTING THE POPE TO SCRUTINY

SUBJECTING THE POPE TO SCRUTINY  

Regarding the Pope’s proposal that married men in S America in remote areas be ordained. No doubt this is an extension of his ‘modernising policy’ following ‘Amoris Laetitia’. In that, he was supposedly acting to help those ‘in second marriages’ when in fact the only way to do so would be to urge them to go to confession and be absolved for their adultery – leave their concubines, and either return to their husbands or wives – or live celibately. And in giving them leave to take Communion while ‘living-in-sin’ what the Pope did was (a) suggest the ‘marriage’ was valid and (b) increase the pain of the rejected wife or husband and especially any children, who, in the proposals of Amoris Laetitia are scandalously left ‘out of the loop’. And now by proposing the above change, he is setting a precedent that is bound to be exploited to put pressure on the traditional requirement for a priest to remain celibate. He justifies it by claiming ‘a special case’, namely that in the wider Amazon region, there are Catholics who live too far from churches to have access to the Mass and the Eucharist. I would be sceptical of that, because being so far from civilisation, surrounded by water infested by piranhas and inhabited by pagan Indians wielding poison-darts, it begs certain questions. How transparent is the evidence? Does it conform to the demands of academia? So let’s take a critical look at his proposals. For in specifying those in ‘remote’ areas, he is raising other questions. These Amazon dwellers ‘too far for Mass’ how did they get there? .. For Bergoglio – is there a ‘spontaneous generation of Catholics’? Because, for there to be Catholics – there must be PRIESTS!! Like Love and Marriage, Horse and Carriage – YOU CAN’T GET ONE WITHOUT THE OTHER, So what Bergoglio is positing – is a pastoral impossibility.. Babies don’t baptise themselves. So the real solution would be – not to have a quick sacramental ‘fix-it’, but to send out priests as was traditionally the work of ‘Propaganda Fidei’ – a Vatican Department, and to declare their regions ‘missionary areas’, You can’t just ordain someone if he lacks priestly formation – that must come first. In other words the Pope is ‘putting the sacramental cart before the pastoral horse’. He is as in Amoris Laetitia riding roughshod over 2000 years of tradition in the name of his new church.  For a more comprehensive list of this pope’s misdemeanours, see an article on ‘Pope Narcissus 1’ by ‘Father Celatus’ in the August 15th 2019 ‘Remnant’.  He defines ‘narcissism as a love of self with a loathing for others’ and states: ‘examples of narcissistic behaviour on the part of Bergoglio abound and precede his dubious pontificate. Conspiring with cardinals to be elected pope – quite possibly an invalidating act – is narcissistic  .. and we hear the voice of a narcissist when he mocked those who offered spiritual bouquets of rosaries on the occasion of his election and when he hurls his infamous insults upon traditional Catholics. We see the vindictiveness of a narcissist when he strips prelates of their power should they dare to question his actions and again when he remains smug and silent in the face of damning accusations and calls for clarifications. The world got an ugly glimpse of the true nature of this narcissist in Chile, where he callously accused the victims of clerical sexual abuse of damaging the reputation of a credibly accused predator prelate. It was (he) who knowingly restored a serial predator Cardinal to prominence, thus enabling the continued rape of minors and ravaging of seminarians and young priests by a diehard diabolical narcissist. It is diabolical narcissism which probably accounts for the resolute refusal of Bergoglio to bend his knee in the Real Presence of our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament, whether at Mass or in Adoration… Only God can judge the soul but the faithful and cardinals in particular should judge the words and actions of this man who sits upon the Chair of Peter, when they do not conform to the faith…’ (‘Father Celatus’  8/15/19)
