Hillary White wrote an article at the Remnant that I highly recommend reading, thinking and praying about.
I don’t have any answers for the questions I will pose below, but I think, with less than eight months to go before the next installment of the Synod to End the Family, now might be a good time to at least open the discussion: what do we do when the Cardinal Kasper’s New Paradigm is officially in place?
Simply put, can a Catholic in good conscience continue to attend a parish where the priest has agreed to go along with the New Paradigm? And if not, what then?
Ultimately, I believe we are in a situation in the Church so dire that only the long view of history is going to be able to determine what is really happening. But this is not to say that we who are living in it are unable to discern what our duty is here and now. I propose, therefore, only to start the discussion by asking some obvious but painful questions, and to perhaps illumine it with a few easily verifiable facts.
I'm going to tell you the exact moment I knew our beloved Holy Father would ask us to embrace and practice heresy.
It wasn't his disrespect and condescending insults of 2000 years of practitioners and praxis.
It wasn't the absence of Church teaching on moral theology.
It wasn't the now hundreds of off-the-cuff statements he made that conveyed to listeners in every corner of the world that Church teaching on breaking the commandments should be ignored in practice because they're antiquated, the people who practice them are rigid, creed-reciting sourpusses who are afraid to dance.
It wasn't the numerous instances when he discredited, obstructed and dismantled Traditionalists.
It wasn't even when my own children cited the Pope's encouragement of immoral conduct, making them skeptical of 30 years of painful Catechesis in the world pulling them away from it. Though admittedly, that was the moment he became anathema to me. The long battle of keeping their moral compass straight through the many priests who tried to lure them into the pit, the many parishes I fled to find them a faithful pastor - or at least one who wouldn't lure them into heresy - the day they regurgitated what the Pope is teaching and expressed their skepticism, perhaps for the rest of their lives -- that is the day I wanted to punch Pope Francis in the nose. I've wanted to punch him in the nose every day since. But it still gave him the benefit of the doubt that it was not his intention to lead Christ's Church and people to embrace and practice heresy.
The day I knew was the day he appointed Kasper to lead the Synod on the family and asked us to embrace and practice the heresy Kasper teaches.
There we have it straight from the horses mouth.
There is no miscommunication or misunderstanding possible. He appointed a heretic and asked the Church to embrace and practice it. The end.
The deceptive and sleaze around the Synod and the Relatio confirmed the moment Pope Francis appointed a heretic and asked the Church to embrace and practice it, in spite of it's contradiction to 2000 years of theology.
We don't have to wonder about whether he is going to do it. There it is in all it's glory.
So, what do we do now?
Same thing we've always done.
Find a pastor who will remain faithful. Find the remnant. Practice and teach our religion in the cavern. And take every opportunity to resist and trip them. Like the Conference of Polish Bishops, like bloggers, find a mountain and witness that under no circumstances will we teach and practice their heresy. We are going nowhere. We will stay and muck up everything they try to roll out until they retreat. In every diocese, in every parish and every apostolate.
We are two generations of parents and grandparents whose children have been raped and robbed. They have no idea what that means and what they are up against.
The show in Rome is more of a threat to us than the muslim crusaders ethnically cleansing Christians with the help and support of the President of the United States and politicians whom they idolize, adore and honor. They are not going to lead our children into immorality and sin as the devil rises out of the abyss to kill us.
You want to know what we're going to do? Give Russ Steinback of the MA Knights of Columbus a call. He'll give you an earful. Tell you all about how Pope Francis and Cardinal Dolan were a witness to parade souls into clapping fornication and tell you the reasons why he couldn't get it executed.
You want to know what we're going to do? Call Fr. Rosica. He'll tell you that every time he publishes or tweets the propaganda, we will use his own words and actions and demonstrate how the errors lead our people into Sodom and Gomorrah. When he bullies and threatens us, we intends to pull together and fight back with masses of Catholics whose children they robbed. We expose every attempt to tell us to STFU and then end up drinking their own poison. By the Grace of God.
We're going to go to Mass, daily if and when we can. We're going to do what it takes to stay in a state of Grace every day. We're going to teach our religion. And we are going muck their agenda up from now until the October Synod, and afterwards if we have to.
Let's acknowledge the elephant in the room.
Let them go back to Rome demoralized and tired and knowing that if they do it, we will reject the authority of the Pope and there is going to be a big fugatz. A lot of commotion. We don't know how it will play out. But there's one thing we do know. Even a pope is not going to separate us from the Chair of Peter of which he is a temporary occupant. We will, somehow, put the rubber ball on his nose and the noses of anyone who utters the agenda and we will carry on until the smoke rises again. We'll see plenty of ugly and cowardice. The boys will be separated from the men.
I believe informing the Holy Father what will happen is an act of charity. Maybe he will reconsider and his papacy will be spared the nightmare ahead of him. But I am not the least bit worried about whether he will or won't. Other then dreading the work ahead of us if he does. Whatever happens, happens. We will rise to the occasion.
Worthy is the Lamb.
I do not give a flying, flipping turd that the Pope doesn't like Catholics who are going to hold his feet to the fire to pass on the religion that gives our children a daily dose of Sanctifying Grace. I'm not losing any sleep over it. Rock on dude. Rock on.
So long as they know there is no way and no possibility we will teach our children the commandments can be ignored, breaking them can be virtuous and all the other farcical and diabolical concepts he has floated through the heretics he has appointed.
It is not happening and there will be some kind of earthquake that leads a huge divide in the fault, come the Synod.
We are going to stand as a witness on the opposite side of the Pope. We will retain the Chair of Peter and the Deposit of Faith. We will say to our children "look, this is the Chair of Peter and the Deposit of Faith. The Pope is not in it. " We will be in the faces of every bishop and priest, right in the pews on on the internet. There will be plenty of priests who will be with us. Enough refuges for our children. We have Christ's promises.
That's what we'll do because at the end of the day, our children will be reluctant to jump over into the Roman Sodom and Gomorrah. That is my job above everything else. To be a witness to the truth to the children in my care. Those are promises I have made to Christ. I am not breaking them. For any mortal. Even should a pope ask me to do so.
God will heal the division at some point in the future.
