A few things about this article.
The quote in Scripture that describes people whose theological focus is material things as pagans came to mind when I read the excerpt from Amoris wherein Pope Francis defends his ideas by saying "Communion is not a prize for the perfect."
It is completely bankrupt of spiritual substance of what the Eucharist is, its effects upon a soul in a perpetual state of mortal sin.
Instead of acknowledging he is recommending a Medicine his people will have a bad reaction to because of the toxic waste in their soul, he accuses Church teaching of cultish practices that are mortal and sinful in nature. He makes the Eucharist a spiritually empty gesture of welcome.
It's like an oncologist giving chemotherapy to a healthy person because
He does not want them to feel left out!
I'm sorry to say...It's mind boggling spiritual malpractice.
The other theme that keeps manifesting itself is his practice to ignore the damage he is doing. I think about this in terms of his role as our supreme parent.
How do you watch negative effects of your parenting, ignore them does and pleas of your children, insult them and continue to do and say the same things over and over again?
Who does that?
If you stop a child doing something self destructive and he complains, this we of course ignore.
When WE suggest our children do something destructive and they come to us with wounds and we ignore and insult them, these are sinister actions of a sick individual.
Again, I am sorry to say it, but these are valid observations and sound conclusions.
