One could devote the contents of an entire blog to keeping an eye on what the Pope is saying!
Today, we find Pope Francis explaining that priests can become little Frankensteins and this gives him the goose bumps.
Francis, who headed the Jesuits' novice training program in his native Argentina in the 1970s, also warned the superiors of some of the failings of seminary training, or "formation," such as when would-be priests merely "grit their teeth, try not to make mistakes, follow the rules smiling a lot, just waiting for the day when they are told 'Good, you have finished formation."
"This is hypocrisy that is the result of clericalism, which is one of the worst evils," Francis was quoted as saying, returning to the issue of clericalism — or a certain cronyism and careerism among the men of the cloth — that he has frequently criticized.
The training of priests, he said, must be a "work of art, not a police action."
"We must form their hearts. Otherwise we are creating little monsters. And then these little monsters mold the people of God. This really gives me goose bumps," he was quoted as saying....
"I am not speaking about people who recognize that they are sinners: we are all sinners, but we are all not corrupt," Francis said. "Sinners are accepted, but not people who are corrupt."
What is this gobblygook supposed to mean?
The entire matrix of the Jesuit religious order is corrupt and they are teaching said corruption to hundreds of thousands of souls in our schools, apostolates, magazines, newspapers and periodicals.
He could not possibly have missed the 350 elephants in the room with him.
Moreover, why would Pope Francis hand-pick a Cardinal to advise him on restructuring Rome whose own Chancery is one of the worst examples of cronyism in the 2000 year history of the Roman Catholic Church?
Are we to believe the Pope told the superiors of the Jesuits that the monster in the Church is the teaching and preaching of moral teachings?
During his homily, Francis told his fellow Jesuits to use mercy, not morality, when they preach.
Do I understand that he is telling religious superiors not to teach seminarians the moral teachings of the Church and to teach them not to teach it?
Monsters in the church of Pope Francis are priests who teach the substance of the Catechism. Those little monsters create monsters who teach the moral teachings of the Church to the people of God, inside of their parishes and homes.
Seminaries are places where the artwork of theological mistakes and errors are to flourish and are training camps for forming priests so they do not teach the substance of the Catechism.
See what he's getting at?
I sure hope this is another misunderstanding.
A lot of us are developing a severe case of the goosebumps.
Here is more context.
