A few more details have emerged on Pope Francis plans for shuffling the chairs around on the Titanic.
They're mulling over the idea of two new 'super-departments' - one headed by the peace and justice moonbats and another for 'the laity and the family.
A Vatican spokesman said during a press conference that the aim of the reform is to guarantee a more efficient form of service by the Vatican, both to the universal church and to bishops’ conferences around the world.
The Rev. Federico Lombardi acknowledged that the jury is still out on whether the reform will work.
“If the reforms lead to a more efficient and less centralized service is something that only time and history will tell,” he said.
With the painful exposition of corruption on the levels underneath the Holy See, why on earth would they see less supervision and authority from Rome as the solution?
If anything, we need a place to report corruption where the corrupt will know it will be acted upon.
We need a place that will tail priests who are suspected of living with their lovers or just plain old demoralizing parishioners - and then act upon the information cultivated from the investigation.
Other than political expedience and publicity stunts attempting to give the false impression that laity is running the Holy See, what possible benefit could be derived from this reshuffling?
I can't think of a single thing that would help the catechesis of our people and the problems with corruption.
They just finished putting the shinola on their image of woman with an infomercial using a sex kitten with over-sized false eyelashes and botox-injected lips.
The Pope has selected an apostate to lead theology on the family.
They have absolutely no discretion on what people to put in place and why.
It is particularly disturbing that the Bishop Gumbleton 'peace and justice' brigade is proposed on top of the hierarchy. They are notorious heretics and have been a major force in silencing Church teaching, promoting contraception and immoral sex - in the name of 'peace'. I've never come across a single clown involved in the ministry that was faithful to Church teaching. Not a single one in 58 years. The ministry has lead the crusade of the destruction of catechesis both inside and outside of Christ's Church.
It stinks to the high heavens.
With their people uncatechized and demoralized, the emphasis on 'the environment' is the sound of Nero's fiddle as Rome burns.
After the antics of the Pope's synod and Relatio, his assertion he operates his see with 'absolute transparency', I am sorry to say, is simply not believable.
Bishop DiNardo has also expressed his doubts.
The article in Crux clings to the hope that a list of folks having sex outside of marriage will be allowed to partake of the Sacraments without remorse, the Sacrament of Confession or amending the situation.
There is no theology that would allow cohabitating, same-sex, divorced and remarried to be welcomed to the Sacraments. It is not possible. If the Pope even attempts to push this agenda in October, his authority will not come out unscathed on the other end it. It will be the frosting on the cake of his slow creep towards anathema.
