Pope Francis doozy to the Pentecostals shed some light on his canard about happiness.
I thought to myself, "Oh,I get it. He's giving out advice to make people feel good about themselves when they're in a state of mortal sin."
And brother, are the poor uncatechized slobs of this world ever going to need it.
This is brutal, isn't it?
If the translation is accurate, in the Pope's speech to the Pentecostals, he actually announced heresy, apostasy and the separation of countless immortal souls from Christ's Church should be 'celebrated' as 'diverrsity'.
It's clear Archbishop Chaput is troubled by the dissatisfaction with the folk wisdom of Dalia Franka.
Through the years, Archbishop Chaput has forged a special bond with Catholics who know true happiness and peace of mind and spirit can never be found outside of a state of sanctifying grace.
I'm sure he is getting an earful from people for whom he holds a great deal of respect.
There is one flaw in Ab Chaput's thesis that I have found repeats itself when people try to urge mothers to accept the antidote of watching the faith of their children unravel in the switcheroo from Sanctifing Grace to cheap grace.
They keep trying telling us that Pope Francis believes in the teachings of the Church.
Nobody sound and rational is disputing that Pope Francis himself is faithful to the teachings of the Church.
What they don't seem to get is, we are not interested in his personal set of values and his personal practices. Our dissatisfaction is related to his actual job: teaching our children and the people we love what to believe.
So when the Pope suggests the worst thing to do is evangelize the teachings of the Church or we should let apostasy live and let live or 'celebrate' the 'diversity' of the people we love moseying on down the road to a protestant church - and all the other nonsense that has been the fruit of lo these 500 days, we take no comfort in the proposition that Pope Francis knows his own way to Heaven.
God bless him, I hope he makes it.
But I am beside myself about he is teaching our children to believe is the path to their salvation.
If Archbishop Chaput believes there is some place in Heaven where prelates who have misled souls reside, I do not join him in that delusion, but where Pope Francis goes for his eternal place of rest is not on my radar.
If over the course of 500 days, the Pope taught our children faithfulness to teachings of the Church, these ten suggestions would be benign. They may actually be welcomed.
Even if he said nothing to instruct our people how to make judgments on the deposit of faith, the ten suggestions wouldn't stand out like a sore thumb.
But Pope Francis has repeatedly and consistently given our children the message he's come along to show us all the key to happiness is poopoohing 2000 years of judgments in the deposit of faith and focusing on what everyone does with money. You can sleep around, take contraception, murder your children, go to the protestant church -- so long as you donate time and money, you are on the path to salvation. Anyone who is honest has to agree this is the message of this papacy.
Pope Francis has painted himself as the white horse who is going to save Christ's Church from the faithfulness to Christ's teachings which is making the world miserable.
Unrepentant, murderers feel emotions that might temporarily lift their spirit when playing with their children and could in fact spend 24 hours of their day following the Pope's 10 suggestions, but they are nothing but distractions. The state of their soul controls their intellect which in turn controls their emotions. Outside of a state of grace, those wires are frazzled.
Leisure is not going to fix the problem any more than the drugs the shrinks are passing out like candy.
