He’s back…

Perhaps we should be grateful that in Francis’ latest video for his prayer intentions of the month (now for March 2016), Francis offers no direct insult to God, does not explicitly deny any Catholic doctrine, and does not put our Lord Jesus Christ on a level with Buddha, Mohammed, or any other false prophet or deity.

Unfortunately, however, Jorge Bergoglio’s silence comes at a price: We now have to hear about the Modernist tripe preached by the “papal” retreat master instead, and tripe it is.

On March 9, 2016, Aleteia’s Rome correspondent, Diane Montagna, reported on one of the “meditations” offered that day by the Modernist preacher, a certain “Fr.” Ermes Ronchi, OSM, who reflected on the question, “How many loaves do you have?” in the account of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fishes (see Mt 14:14-21; Mk 6:34-44; Lk 9:12-17; Jn 6:1-14).
