Francis: “The Wounds inflicted on our Mother Earth are Wounds that also Bleed in Us”
Before Francis, there was Michael Jackson: Heal the World (1992)
Each day seems to be some other World Day of this or that secular cause observed by the United Nations, and June 5 happens to be that of the Environment.
It won’t take you long to guess who had something to say about it: Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”), of course. When it comes to matters of Sacred Theology, the man pretending to be the Pope of the Catholic Church is quick to confess his limited competence — with regard to everything else, he considers himself an expert.
The host nation for World Environment Day this year is Colombia, and the Jesuit squatter occupying the Vatican’s Casa Santa Marta naturally had to send a message to the nation’s president, Iván Duque Márquez, for the occasion. It included the following outrageous lines:
The protection of the environment and respect for the biodiversity of the planet are issues that affect us all. We cannot pretend to be healthy in a world that is sick. The wounds inflicted on our mother earth are wounds that also bleed in us….
…We cannot remain silent before the outcry when we realize the very high costs of the destruction and exploitation of the ecosystem. …We have the chance to reverse course, to commit ourselves to a better, healthier world, and to pass it on to future generations. Everything depends on us if we really want it.
Recently we celebrated the fifth anniversary of the Encyclical Letter Laudato Si’, which drew attention to the cry that mother earth lifts up to us.
(Antipope Francis, in Jim Fair, “Holy Father’s Letter on World Environment Day”, Zenit, June 5, 2020; underlining added.)
Of course a reference to the “most vulnerable and marginalized” was also included. Reference to anything supernatural, on the other hand, was absent.
Francis’s mother, it is clear from his message, is not the Blessed Virgin Mary but Gaia, also known as “Mother Earth” or “Pachamama.” He is concerned because “she” is wounded and bleeding, such that he cannot be silent! Whereas, when the Sacred Heart of Jesus is wounded and bleeding profusely on account of the world’s unbelief, apostasy, idolatry, blasphemy, and rejection of Christ’s Sacred Kingship, on account of which countless souls are going to hell each and every day, the ever-talkative, ever-active Francis is not disturbed in the least. If anything, he takes care to make matters considerably worse:
- Golden Calf 2.0: Earth Goddess Worship at Vatican under Francis’ Nose
- Francis publishes book on “Our Mother Earth”
- Getting in Touch with “Mother Earth” at Vatican Christmas Concert
- Francis: Religious differences are necessary!
- Francis boldly promotes generic One-World Religion
If he is then asked what might be the cause of the Coronavirus pandemic, Francis has the answer: It’s Mother Nature’s revenge!
As always, Francis thinks in natural terms, never in supernatural terms, at least not when he’s talking to a secular audience: “They are of the world: therefore of the world they speak, and the world heareth them” (1 Jn 4:5). But it is precisely the secular or non-Catholic audience that needs to hear the supernatural truth the most: “And he said to them: Go ye into the whole world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized, shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall be condemned” (Mk 16:15-16). The virtue of Faith is absolutely necessary, by necessity of means, for salvation. Ignorance cannot obviate that requirement, for “without faith it is impossible to please God” (Heb 11:6).
Bergoglio is very concerned about leaving a better and healthier natural world to the following generations. That is fine as far as it goes, but it is really not something the Pope — which he falsely claims to be — should concern himself with too much: “But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his justice, and all these things shall be added unto you” (Lk 12:31).
It is no accident that with all his concern for leaving a better natural world to our progeny, Francis is not terribly concerned about people entering a happier supernatural world in the afterlife. The natural world will necessarily come to an end for each and every one of us, after roughly 100 years of natural life at most. The world that is to come, on the other hand, is eternal and therefore infinitely more important: “Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it!” (Mt 7:13-14; cf. Mk 9:42-47).
The earth is not a person. It cannot bleed, it cannot feel pain, it cannot cry, and it cannot have wounds. Our Blessed Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, however, is the “Lamb that was slain” (Apoc 5:12), and He suffered more than any mere human being is capable of suffering: “But he was wounded for our iniquities, he was bruised for our sins: the chastisement of our peace was upon him, and by his bruises we are healed” (Is 53:5). We can and must make reparation to His Most Sacred Heart so as to “fill up those things that are wanting of the sufferings of Christ” (Col 1:24); for example, by devoutly venerating His Five Wounds:
To summarize: The content of Francis’ letter to the Colombian president was essentially such that it could have come from the leader of any religion or none, and that’s the point. His exhortation that “everything depends on us” denies God’s assistance even in natural affairs. Francis’ letter was basically nothing but a Bergoglian rendition of a Michael Jackson song, with about as much philosophical and theological meaning and depth.
Heal the World (1992) comes to mind, in which Jackson wondered “why do we … wound this earth, crucify its soul?” The Cistercian theology professor “Fr.” Karl Wallner sang it on Austrian TV in 2015, just before the release of Francis’ eco-encyclical Laudato Si’. At the time, we called it “a perfect theme song for the entire Modernist Sect”. Or perhaps Jackson’s Earth Song (1995) would be an even better candidate, in which the pop star sang about “this crying earth, this weeping shore” and — get this — “the bleeding earth” with “its wounds”!
Maybe Jorge Bergoglio should have been a writer for Hallmark greeting cards or a lyricist for the sentimental music industry.
Although he continually says that “the Church is not an NGO”, that is mere window dressing. An NGO — that is, a non-governmental organization — is precisely what Francis’ false church is, and that’s what he wants: a church not merely in the world but of the world, by the world, and concerned with the things of the world (cf. Jn 17:9,14-17).
Therefore, on account of its friendship with the world, it “becometh an enemy of God” (Jas 4:4), and so with the world, it shall perish.
