Chaput is confused

Chaput is confused

Now Archbishop Chaput tells us that he was not criticizing the synod and saying that it was confusing... and of the devil...

CNA says, "Archbishop Chaput rejects 'false' media reports on synod comments"

LINK

The problem is that Chaput is just getting around to this confusing rejection on  October 24...

On October 21 the headline from Religion News Service (RNS) was “Archbishop Chaput Blasts Vatican Debate on Family, says ‘Confusion is of the Devil’.”

Apparently the Archdiocese of Philadelphia didn't like the tone of that headline so Religion News Service changed it to “Archbishop Chaput ‘disturbed’ by Synod Debate, Says ‘Confusion is of the Devil’.”

LINK

Chaput is confused... which way are the Vatican winds blowing...?

What is a spineless "conservative" bishop to do when confronted by bergoglio's "god of surprises"?

... back in the day when Ratzinger was pope it was cool to be conservative... all the cool bishops were conservative...

Now it is so confusing for spineless bishops... twisting and flapping in the wind... crawling on their spineless bellies...

Is it cool to be like Burke...?

What is going to get me the most airtime on EWTN?

... apparently Chaput has come to the conclusion that the short-lived palace coup by the ratzingerians has failed... and he no longer wants to be associated with the "conservative" crowd... like Pell and Burke...

... IMO Chaput is vying for a red hat and he will do and say whatever is needed in order to continue his ecclesial career climb...

It's all very confusing, I know... and confusion is of...?

So let me be very clear... my take on all of this is that Chaput wanted to send a message that he is still a "conservative" in spite of the obvious "liberal" shift in the
Church being orchestrated by don bergoglio. And so he had his people contact the RNS people and the story was  written with the first headline with his approval. And then Chaput decided that the first headline was a little too controversial and so his people contacted the RNS people and the headline was changed. A few days later Chaput decided that he wanted nothing to do with criticizing the synod and now he wants the story retracted... but it's too late. So Chaput denies that he intended to criticize the synod and tries to spin the story in a way that makes it sound like he was really criticizing the media protrayal of the synod and not the synod itself...

... it's called "plausible deniability" baby and it's the way the game is played in the always confusing world of politics...

... but the Church is supposed to be above politics... very confusing... and confusion is of... yes, that's right... confusion is of the devil...

... this confusing message brought to you by bergoglio and his demonic friends...

Ratzinger vs. bergoglio?

Ratzinger vs. bergoglio?

"Retired pope says interreligious dialogue no substitute for mission" [See news story below.]

This is what happens when you have "two popes"... thanks to Herr Ratzinger and his surprise "retirement" to "prayer"... more confusion... as if we don't have enough already...

And confusion is of... the devil... even Cardinal Chaput agrees on this [LINK]...

Oops, I meant to say Archbishop Chaput... somehow, I think it is going to be a while before Chaput becomes a cardinal... if ever...

We´ll see a Cardinal Cupich before a Cardinal Chaput... I would be willing to bet bergoglio's pectoral "cross" on that...

So now does this indicate that there is an all out power struggle going on behind the scenes at the Vatican between the two modernist camps -- the ratzingerians and the bergoglians...?

We saw some signs of this power struggle come out in the open during the debates in the synod (on sex)...

What's next a rumble between the Jets (bergoglians) and the Sharks (ratzingerians)?

[The reference is to West Side Story for those too young to remember...]

Tonight... tonight!

"Retired pope says interreligious dialogue no substitute for mission"

BY  FRANCIS X. ROCCA, CATHOLIC NEWS SERVICE -- October 23, 2014

LINK

VATICAN CITY - Retired Pope Benedict XVI said dialogue with other religions is no substitute for spreading the Gospel to non-Christian cultures, and warned against relativistic ideas of religious truth as "lethal to faith." He also said the true motivation for missionary work is not to increase the church's size but to share the joy of knowing Christ.

The retired pope's words appeared in written remarks to faculty members and students at Rome's Pontifical Urbanian University, which belongs to the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples. Archbishop Georg Ganswein, prefect of the papal household and personal secretary to retired Pope Benedict, read the 1,800-word message aloud Oct. 21, at a ceremony dedicating the university's renovated main lecture hall to the retired pope.

The speech is one of a handful of public statements, including an interview and a published letter to a journalist, that Pope Benedict has made since he retired in February 2013.

"The risen Lord instructed his apostles, and through them his disciples in all ages, to take his word to the ends of the earth and to make disciples of all people," retired Pope Benedict wrote. "'But does that still apply?' many inside and outside the church ask themselves today. 'Is mission still something for today? Would it not be more appropriate to meet in dialogue among religions and serve together the cause of world peace?' The counter-question is: 'Can dialogue substitute for mission?'

"In fact, many today think religions should respect each other and, in their dialogue, become a common force for peace. According to this way of thinking, it is usually taken for granted that different religions are variants of one and the same reality," the retired pope wrote. "The question of truth, that which originally motivated Christians more than any other, is here put inside parentheses. It is assumed that the authentic truth about God is in the last analysis unreachable and that at best one can represent the ineffable with a variety of symbols. This renunciation of truth seems realistic and useful for peace among religions in the world.

"It is nevertheless lethal to faith. In fact, faith loses its binding character and its seriousness, everything is reduced to interchangeable symbols, capable of referring only distantly to the inaccessible mystery of the divine," he wrote.
Pope Benedict wrote that some religions, particularly "tribal religions," are "waiting for the encounter with Jesus Christ," but that this "encounter is always reciprocal. Christ is waiting for their history, their wisdom, their vision of the things." This encounter can also give new life to Christianity, which has grown tired in its historical heartlands, he wrote.

"We proclaim Jesus Christ not to procure as many members as possible for our community, and still less in order to gain power," the retired pope wrote. "We speak of him because we feel the duty to transmit that joy which has been given to us."

The synod from hell

The synod from hell

... brought to you by the pope from... Argentina... which as far as we can tell is as close to hell as you can get without leaving the surface of the planet...

The Remnant has posted two new videos which review the synod and the impact it has had and where the Church is headed under the leadership of bergoglio.

Video 1: Remnant Underground, Episode 22: The Synod from Hell -- LINK

Video 2: The Remnant Forum: The Pope's Synod: ROUND 1 -- LINK

=====

Here is a previous video from July 2014 from the Remnant that discusses the synod.

Occupy Vatican: Bracing for the Synod on the Family -- LINK

"The Remnant Forum's Michael Matt and Christopher Ferrara break down Instrumentum Laboris—the working document for the coming Synod on the Family in Rome.  Question: Are the revolutionaries who broke the Church in the first place really in any position to fix it now?"

=====

And this is what I wrote at the time regarding this video.

"Radical synod: Oktober 2014 revolution!"

LINK

Christopher Ferrara repeatedly makes the point that the next phase in the revolution is an assault on Church teachings on morality. This is the one area that was considered more or less out of bounds as the Vatican heirarchy officially  implemented changes in the Church "in the spirit of Vatican II".  And now that final fortress wall is about to be breached and the demonic army will come rushing through to attack the inner sanctum of the Church. The Holy of Holies.

So that is why I refer to the upcoming Oktober revolution as the "synod on sex" rather than the "synod on the family". The theme of the "modern crisis" of the family is simply a propaganda ploy to bring the sexual revolution into the Church.

The popular media likes to portray the Church as being "obsessed with sex", but actually they are the ones obsessed with sex and only cover the Church when it relates to how Church teachings impede the progress of the sexual revolution.

And of course bergoglio infamously chimed in and said that the Church was "obsessed" with issues of morality such as abortion and "homosexual marriage".

bergoglio and "friends" have chosen the issue of "communion for the divorced and re-married" as their perfect propaganda tool in which they can put into practice the world's largest "situational ethics" therapy session.

"How do YOU feel about that?"
"How does that make you FEEL?"
"What would YOU do when faced with this situation?"

God? Commandments? Dogma? Tradition? Even the teachings of Christ are thrown out in this phony excercise of mass "group therapy" where the unwitting guinea pigs are the Catholic faithful worldwide.

Kyrie eleison!
Holy Mother Mary, pray for us!

The end of the Catholic World?

The end of the Catholic World?

Take it away Louie Verricchio with the Catholic version of "the end of the world as we know it"...

LINK to VIDEO

Hey Louie, where are the lyrics?

bergoglio's god of surprises

bergoglio's god of surprises

The following quotes are from bergoglio's homily inaugurating his papacy on 19 March 2013.

LINK

Surprise!

"... but we also see the core of the Christian vocation, which is Christ! Let us protect Christ in our lives, so that we can protect others, so that we can protect creation!"

What does it mean to be a Catholic according to bergoglio? What is at the "core"?

"To protect others"... in other words "peace and justice"... "anti-poverty" programs... in other words a man-centric religion... and even a marxist/socialist/masonic religion...

"To protect creation"... in other words "environmentalism"... which is really a code word for "population control"... which is really a code word for sterilization and abortion...

All very mundane... nothing about protecting souls and leading them to heaven... this is what a shepherd of Christ's flock is tasked to do... this is the job of the bishops and the pope... not "anti-poverty" programs and saving the whales... it is the duty of our shepherds to save souls... this is the "core"...

Surprise!

bergoglio goes on to stress the importance of "respecting the environment"... (see above)

He says we must "care for creation and for our brothers and sisters"... what's missing here? Love of God and love of souls. It is not enough to provide "bread"... man does not live on bread alone. And by "creation" bergoglio really means "the environment"... again...

Surprise!

"let us be 'protectors' of creation, protectors of God’s plan inscribed in nature, protectors of one another and of the environment."

There's "the environment" again...

Surprise!

"We must not be afraid of goodness or even tenderness!"

As we have since learned, this translates from "bergoglian" into English as... "who are we to judge" sodomites?

Surprise!

"we need to see the light of hope and to be men and women who bring hope to others. To protect creation, to protect every man and every woman, to look upon them with tenderness and love, is to open up a horizon of hope; it is to let a shaft of light break through the heavy clouds; it is to bring the warmth of hope! For believers, for us Christians, like Abraham, like Saint Joseph, the hope that we bring is set against the horizon of God, which has opened up before us in Christ. It is a hope built on the rock which is God."

Hope is used 5 times. Hope. Change. Hope. Change. Who does that remind you of?

And along with "hope" is "light". Is a picture forming in your mind of a lady with a light... the masonic Statue of Liberty of course.

Surprise!

bergoglio's god of surprises is none other than the masonic goddess of liberty... egalite, liberte, fraternite...

Surprise!

"to protect the whole of creation, to protect each person, especially the poorest, to protect ourselves: this is a service that the Bishop of Rome is called to carry out"

"give me your poor... your masses yearning to breath free... " or whatever. Sound familiar? It should. It is the usual liberal/masonic/marxist/atheist mantra.

What does Bishop Tobin really think about the synod?

What does Bishop Tobin really think about the synod?

From the Bishop Tobin's coliumn on the website of the Diocese of Providence

— In trying to accommodate the needs of the age, as Pope Francis suggests, the Church risks the danger of losing its courageous, counter-cultural, prophetic voice, a voice that the world needs to hear.

— The concept of having a representative body of the Church voting on doctrinal applications and pastoral solutions strikes me as being rather Protestant.

— Wherever he serves, Cardinal Burke will be a principled, articulate and fearless spokesman for the teachings of the Church.

— Pope Francis is fond of “creating a mess.” Mission accomplished.
