Scalia and Patheos- the "Pope Francis Effect"

I fell to temptation and read the comboxes on her attack of Cardinal Burke. So many of you have written to say her arrogance and noxious behavior worsened after the Romans poured gasoline on her fires of destruction of catechesis. I didn't think it was possible to reach a higher level of arrogance and obnoxious and I just had to see for myself.

She really has it going on but that is the way I always remember her.

I hadn't been to her snake pit since she wrote the piece titled "Ted Kennedy Crucible". When Catholics work to diminish the efficacy of the devil who has one of our own using his talent to slay children and the souls if their mothers, Lizzy rushes to defend sin and confirm them in it. Leading a soul to the Sacraments is a crucible to her. Shea and the other daffy dame work a trilogy.

When women are being hoodwinked into surrendering their incredible gift of human sexuality to a repository for sperm for men who do not respect or love them enough to care about their salvation, let alone marry them, take pills to chemically sterilize themselves or kill their own children, there is nothing like the "social justice" of Winkin, Blinkin, and Nod.

They are like people who let friends drive home drunk and attack friends who say what is necessary to stop them and then claim that is what nice is, convincing themselves they are doing service to God.

She must be a charmer as a friend, eh? When you are doing something stupid and self destructive, Lizzie stands on her front porch to wave goodbye, hand you a bright balloon and blow kisses.

I keep wondering how low EWTN will let them go before they cut them loose but her venom directed at Cardinal Burke speaks volumes about the state of affairs at that place. Mother Angelica may be incapacitated now, but when that holy, brave woman dies, she will storm from Heaven and knock them down and out of her apostolate like a lucky strike at the bowling alley.

I don't know how anyone could stand reading any of it. It is repulsive.

I've spoken of "the Pope Francis effect" in an off-the-cuff manner, but in all seriousness, we need to face the truth. Catholics who have been begging for Catechesis are in for a pontificate that is going to arm the enemies of teaching the Deposit of Faith. Pope Francis is arming them with tools to carry out their attacks with brutality and force. They will do it on the Internet and in every apostolate in every parish and school in every diocese.

And they are wearing the coat of arms of a Catholic Pope.

It is as clear as the nose on your face that Catholics who want and need effective teaching of the substance of the Catechism are the enemies of Pope Francis and his "effect", and we will be targets for removal and the tactics of King David to set you up to be killed. Please keep Fr Wylie in your prayers.

The situation is as bad as it gets. Good times are ahead.

Lizzie is the manifestation of the "Pope Francis effect" and it is as critical as ever for responsible Catholic evangelists to express what we know is happening before our eyes and how to keep your hand on the plow.

There is enough substance taught over the last thirty years to be effective in your parish, even when approached with Lizzies and Sheas carrying wearing the coat of arms of Pope Francis.

Grab something and hold onto it, preserve it.

With one very important caveat: if you have children under the age of 18 and a parish or school is not teaching the substance if the Catechism or is teaching error, get out. Find another place to worship where the faith is being taught to your children. This is not the time for you to do anything but see to it that your own are formed with tools they need to make the right judgments. There are priests excersising Moto Proprio in every diocese. If there is nothing left where you are, pack it up and drive there.

That is our job until the smoke rises again in Vatican City.

And of course prayer, Adoration and using every morsel of good fruit that can and will come from Pope to draw and convert--and our sense of humor.

How dare you?!?

This was a decidedly unPastoral blog post and I'm guessing you scowl at kittens and babies and kick the invalid's wheelchair.

No Grappa for you, lady, and may Msgr. Ricca in his mercy exclude you from his Sweet Merciful Revenge list of Orthodox Catholics.

Haha! Kick invalids in chairs!! Too funny.

I was on the revenge list at least fifteen years ago and stayed on it for ten years. I think I pooped them and their spin machine out!

Thought you would appreciate some information from 1930-31.

Are we seeing the start of "US" joining the rest of those who have abandoned the Faith?

The Historic Christian Teaching:

Few realize that up until 1930, all Protestant denominations agreed with the Catholic Church’s teaching condemning contraception as sinful. At its 1930 Lambeth Conference, the Anglican church, swayed by growing social pressure, announced that contraception would be allowed in some circumstances. Soon the Anglican church completely caved in, allowing contraception across the board. Since then, all other Protestant denominations have followed suit. Today, the Catholic Church alone proclaims the historic Christian position on contraception.

"Since a week ago last Saturday we can no longer expect them to defend the law of God. These sects will work out the very logic of their ways and in fifty or one hundred years there will be only the Church and paganism. We will be left to fight the battle alone — and we will."

— Father Fulton J. Sheen of the Catholic University of America. "Comments ..... and Comments On the Report of The Federal Council of Churches of Christ in America." The American Birth Control League's Birth Control Review, Volume XV, Number 4(April 1931), page 143.

Must be doing something right to end up on the revenge list....I'm about to get myself on the list too.

It's pretty obvious the trip to Rome went to "mean Lizzie's" head (she calls herself, that, by the way; even a stopped clock...) And it was meant to: the Vatican know a bored, ambitious, non-wealthy empty-nester when the see one. Mean Lizzie is smart enough to intuit that more junkets , publishing contracts and cardinal forewords are in the offing if she continues to follow the dance. i suppose it's wrong of me to find all this selling-out entertaining...
