There certainly was no relief from the buffoonery of Pope Francis and company while I was recovering.
This one really got under my skin:
That notorious drunk and heretic is a witness to the gospel all right.
He is the poster boy for Luke 17:1.
And he said to his disciples: It is impossible that scandals should not come: but woe to him through whom they come.
It were better for him, that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should scandalize one of these little ones.
The article references a new initiative of the insufferable birdbrains in the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Christian Unity, which Cardinal Kasper suggests is tee'd up to advance desecration of the Eucharist through 'intercommunion' with protestants.
That's when we'll really see the poop hitting the fan. I personally don't think he's going to pull the trigger.
I hope I am mistaken, but I quickly read through the Vatican document and it left me with the impression they are inviting us to 'celebrate' the 500 years of the suckers and their descendants who were robbed of the forgiveness and absolution of mortal sin and the Holy Father's nonfeasance edicts relative to the fiat of converting the uncatechized.
Here is the linkmto the doc. Read and let us know your thoughts!
Look, everyone wants to see Protestants come into communion with the Catholic!I'd Church and have access to the Sacraments of salvation. But you are not going to get fish on the hook by telling them the cespool of heresy and sin they are swimming in is a path to salvation.
That's like telling alcoholics you're going to celebrate decades of getting drunk with a week of free Dewers thrown from the Pope mobile and expecting that to lead them on the path of sobriety.
We are not dealing with people who are in a state of grace able to overcome the mixed messages.
The Reformation was a train wreck that continues to be lethal. There isn't a sane Catholic in Christendom who recognizes Luther as a "witness to the gospel". Not a one.
Over the past few weeks I'm starting to hear solid, smart, faithful Catholics predict we'll see sede vacante in 2017. An interesting development! I am surprised by the quality of Catholics taking this position and I predict we'll be hearing more about this in the near future.
I don't have a crystal ball but my educated guess is the Holy Father will come to Jesus and clarify Church teaching before he is tarred and feathered. I do think it's going to get ugly before we see his white flag.
More on this later.
