Don’t mess with Francis!

Dean of Roman Rota: “Four Cardinals who have written to Pope could lose their Cardinalate”

[UPDATE: “Mgr.” Pinto says he was misquoted, Religion Confidencial issues retraction]

We all know that Francis is the champion of dialogue and encounter, but when “Cardinals” Burke, Brandmuller, Meisner, and Caffarra recently did nothing more than ask five very specific questions on a very important theological matter they wanted clarification on, the ever-so-humble Argentinian bridge builder decided to put up a wall: In a defeaning silence, he simply refused to answer.

After nearly two months of receiving no reply, the Novus Ordo cardinals decided to make their questions public.

“Boiling with Rage”: Francis Reacts to Formal Request for Clarification on Amoris Laetitia

francis-warns2

 

The neverending drama about Amoris Laetitia continues.

The formal request submitted by “Cardinals” Caffarra, Meisner, Burke, and Brandmuller for clarification of five specific points in the infernal exhortation Amoris Laetitia (the so-called dubia, or “doubts”), was released to the public this past Monday, since for almost two months the “Sovereign Pontiff” had refused to give them the courtesy of a response. “Cardinal” Burke added more fuel to the fire by saying in a follow-up interview that the next step would be to confront Francis with a “formal act of correction” should he persist in his errors.

“Cardinal” Burke threatens Francis with “Formal Act of Correction” if he won’t retract the Errors in Amoris Laetitia

cardinal-burke-concerned
When on Monday, Nov. 14, the Italian journalist Sandro Magister published the five dubia submitted to Francis by “Cardinals” Caffarra, Burke, Brandmuller, and Meisner in September, requesting a “clarification” on various controverted points found in the Bergoglian exhortation Amoris Laetitia, it was certain that “clarification” was just a smoother-sounding code word for “retraction”. There is, after all, nothing left to clarify: The exhortation is a most dangerous document subversive of the very foundations of Catholic morality that brazenly attacks the indissolubility of the marriage bond; and Francis has already confirmed, sometimes more, sometimes less openly, that any ambiguous passages are to be understood in their heretical sense.

Amoris Laetitia Revolution:
Pro-Francis “Secret Police” dispatched to ensure last remaining Vestiges of Catholic Morals will be Overturned

francis-secret-police

Boy, things are really hitting the fan now over Amoris Laetitia. As the Italian conservative Novus Ordo journalist Sandro Magister revealed on his blog today, there is a pro-Francis “secret police” at work in Rome now, bullying Novus Ordo academics into compliance with Francis’ new-found perverted morality as laid out in the “Apostolic” exhortation Amoris Laetitia. This is the document that effectively permits unrepentant fornicators and adulterers — and, at least by extension, also practitionors of unnatural vice — to receive the Novus Ordo sacraments.

[UDPATE 12-SEP-16: The Vatican has confirmed the authenticity of the leaked documents and their controversial contents. The matter has now been reported by Vatican Radio, by News.va, and by Osservatore Romano.]

Full Text Leaked: 45 Novus Ordo Scholars Condemn Amoris Laetitia as Heretical

The laughing stock that is the Novus Ordo Church is getting more and more absurd by the day. A few weeks ago was the first time we heard about a substantial scholarly critique of “Pope” Francis’ supposed “Apostolic Exhortation” Amoris Laetitia, the blasphemous and heretical document in which Francis undermines not only Catholic teaching on sexuality but obliterates the very foundations of Catholic moral theology. (See our memes that illustrate the absurd effects of the teaching contained in Amoris Laetitia.)

The critical study, together with its accompanying June 29 letter addressed to the Dean of the College of “Cardinals”, Angelo Sodano, was signed by 45 theologians and other scholars in the New Church and sent to all 219 “cardinals” around the globe.

Francis: “Great Majority” of Marriages today are Invalid because People don’t realize it’s indissoluble — but “Fidelity” in Cohabitation = Real Marriage!

[UPDATE 17-JUN-2016 18:01 UTC: Vatican edits official transcript, changes Francis’ actual words “a great majority of” into “part of”. In either case, however, the fundamental problem remains: Francis believes sacramental marriages are invalid if people do not know or understand that marriage is permanent for life — how many such cases there actually are, is insignificant; the point is that Francis admits the principle! And he furthermore believes that fornication with only one and the same partner equals a real marriage!]

Francis simply cannot keep his jaws together.

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.

NOTE: For reactions to the document, analyses, and commentary, please access our special CHAOS WATCH page at the following link:

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 six: “Some pastoral perspectives” (199-258)
  • Chapter seven: “Towards a better education of children” (259-290)
  • 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.

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.
