Game Over for those in denial…

Francis confirms: “YES”, Sacraments for Public Adulterers now an Option, points to “Cardinal” Schönborn’s Explanation

Bad news for “Cardinal” Burke, Michael Voris, Dave Armstrong, Tim Haines, and the rest of the conservative Novus Ordo crowd that thought they could explain it away: Francis has just personally confirmed that yes, with the publication of Amoris Laetitia, there are now new options availbable for unrepentant public adulterers and fornicators (possibly also for sodomites), options that were not available before, with regard to access to the Novus Ordo “sacraments.”

Today, April 16, on his return flight from Lesbos — that’s a Greek island in the Mediterranean — he held his usual in-flight press conference, in which he answered impromptu questions from journalists aboard the “papal” plane.

After Amoris Laetitia: Illustrating the Absurdity

To illustate the absurdity and folly of “Pope” Francis’ Post-Synodal “Apostolic” Exhortation Amoris Laetitia, we have put together a few memes for sharing on social media that all are welcome to disseminate widely. The idea is to quickly reach more people with the truth that what is put out by the Vatican II Sect as “Catholicism” is utter Modernist garbage and does not deserve to be taken seriously. Sometimes it is easier to communicate ideas to people by means of satire in a cartoon, a picture, or a meme, especially to those people who do shy away from reading.

Francis’ post-synodal exhortation Amoris Laetitia has caused the predicted chaos among conservative adherents of the Vatican II religion, although a few are still in denial. Approximately 18 hours since its official release, plenty of summaries, commentaries, and reactions continue to pour in. We are chronicling the meltdown and present the most explosive quotes from the wordy document in the following two links:

Meanwhile, the German intellectual review Merkur has published an interview with one of the country’s leading “papal” biographers and Vatican journalists, Andreas Englisch.

With his latest humongous document which virtually no one will actually read in full, “Pope” Francis has outdone himself once more. The newly-released document exceeds even his previous overlong “Apostolic Exhortation”, Evangelii Gaudium (2013). At 254 pages of printed text, 391 footnotes, and exceeding 57,000 English words, Amoris Laetitia has got to be a new record for the post-Vatican II paper factory.

Exhortation Amoris Laetitia:
Summary Leaked

francis-uh-oh.jpg

They do not say how they obtained it, or who put it together, but the indult/semi-trad blog Rorate Caeli has just published a summary of the “post-synodal Apostolic exhortation” Amoris Laetitia, which will be officially released tomorrow (April 8) at a press conference scheduled to begin at 11:30 am Rome time (5:30 am ET). Novus Ordo Watch will provide full coverage.

Click here to read the alleged summary:

LEAKED SUMMARY
OF AMORIS LAETITIA

The summary is divided into the following sections, with the paragraphs of the exhortation referenced in parentheses:

  • Introduction (1-7)
  • Chapter One: “In the light of the Word” (8-30)
  • Chapter two: “The experiences and challenges of families” (31-57)
  • Chapter three: “Looking to Jesus: The vocation of the family” (58-88)
  • Chapter four: “Love in marriage” (89-164)
  • Chapter five: “Love made fruitful” (165-198)

  • Chapter eight: “Guiding, discerning and integrating weakness” (291-312)
  • Chapter nine: “The spirituality of marriage and the family” (313-325)

At 325 paragraphs, the document fails to surprise as far as its length goes.

The Day Before:
Novus Ordo Adherents Apprehensive about Post-Synodal “Apostolic Exhortation” Amoris Laetitia

apprehensive.jpg

Don’t worry, buddy, Jimmy Akin’s got this!

What, oh what will Francis do?

Nothing shows trust and confidence in the Petrine office as the guarantee of orthodoxy and sound morals better than hysterically anticipating the theological equivalent of a nuclear detonation because “the Pope” will make a decision about whether publicly unrepentant adulterers can receive “Holy Communion”. In the Catholic Church, there would be nothing to decide on this topic. If a document were to be issued on it, it would contain one word: “No!” Or maybe two words: “Heck no!”

In the pseudo-Catholic Vatican II religion, on the other hand, anything is possible.

Vatican: Post-Synodal Exhortation
on the Family to be Released April 8

Oh goodie. Francis’ fake “Church of Joy” is about to get a lot more joyful. In a press briefing today, the Vatican’s spokesman “Fr.” Federico Lombardi announced that Francis’ long-awaited post-synodal “Apostolic Exhortation” will be released on Friday, April 8. Its title will be Amoris Laetitia — “The Joy of Love”. The official announcement is posted on the Vatican web site. At 11:30 am local time, there will be a special press conference in the Vatican to introduce the lengthy document. It will be presented by “Cardinals” Lorenzo Baldisseri and Christoph Schönborn, both of them known to be adherents of the liberal wing of the Modernist sect.

What he has written, he has written…

This much is clear: Publication of the long-awaited so-called “Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation” of “Pope” Francis on the Synod on the Family, which will address the question of whether publicly unrepentant adulterers, fornicators, and sodomites can be admitted to the Novus Ordo sacraments, is imminent. If recent rumors are true, then the document is in excess of 200 pages, was drafted mainly by “Archbishop” Manuel “Smoochie” Fernandez, and was already signed by Francis on March 19, the feast of St.

What’s Good for the Goose is Good for the Gander: How the October Synod Refutes Vatican II’s False Ecclesiology

When the so-called “Synod on the Family” met at the Vatican this past October, a lot of people were outraged when they heard about the midterm document (relatio) that attempted to dissect mortal sins — including those that cry to Heaven for vengeance — into positive and negative “elements”. This idea, however, was not entirely new — it was simply the extension of a concept endorsed at the Second Vatican Council, according to which there exist “elements” of the Catholic Church in other religions, specifically Protestant sects.

Silent No More: Benedict XVI Joins Debate over Communion for Adulterers

[UPDATE 03-DEC-2014Ratzinger’s revised text now available online (click here)]

Approximately four weeks after the close of part one of the infamous Synod on the Family, the retired “Pope” Benedict XVI now adds some fuel to the inferno. Though he once promised to withdraw completely from ecclesiastical affairs, he somehow always manages to make himself heard whenever he so chooses, even if usually in an indirect or even cryptic way.

This time, Joseph Ratzinger has chosen to weigh in on the debate over whether public adulterers (the “divorced-and-remarried”) should be allowed to receive the Novus Ordo sacraments, which is one of the core issues currently under discussion in the Novus Ordo Sect’s ongoing synod of bishops, part two of which is scheduled to take place in October 2015.

In Final Speech, Francis warns of “Temptations”, criticizes “Traditionalists” and “Liberals”

janus-francis.jpg

In a sly move, “Pope” Francis addressed the Synod in Rome at its closure and criticized both liberals and conservatives for succumbing to certain “temptations” — thus allowing both sides to claim victory in a sense, and thus perpetuating the problem and the controversy until the Ordinary Synod scheduled for October 2015. This way, he has averted a schism at least until then, when final decisions will be made and Francis will release a so-called “Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation” that whichever side wins will say is “the Pope speaking” and the losing side will claim is “just a non-binding exhortation” (which is precisely what we saw with regard to the heretical 2013 exhortation Evangelii Gaudium).

Communion for “Divorced-and-Remarried” Not Impossible

[UPDATE: Did Ratzinger retract his essay in 2014? Not Quite — the facts here: Benedict XVI weighs in on Communion Debate]

At a time when sparks are flying ahead of the controversial Synod on the Family that “Pope” Francis has scheduled to begin on October 5, 2014, we thought it would be a good idea to share once more with our readers — as we already did in March of this year — the little-known fact that among the very first “Catholic” theologians to try to find a way to permit public adulterers (the “divorced-and-remarried” in the Vatican II Church that didn’t manage to get an annulment) to receive the Novus Ordo sacraments was none other than the suit-and-tie Modernist Fr.

At a time when everyone is talking about the German apostate “Cardinal” Kasper’s address to the consistory in Rome on February 21, 2014, outlining ways in which he thinks public adulterers can be admitted again to the Novus Ordo “sacraments”, specifically that of “Holy Communion”, we thought it most appropriate to let people in on the fact that in 1972, Fr.
