Fr. Ripperger defines a recidivist.
I worry that the Holy Father's is sentencing future generations of Catholics with some of these characteristics
- No intention to change his/her ways.
- No improvement in avoiding sin.
- No attempt to overcome and root out vice and sin.
- No contrition for sin
As Father Ripperger brilliantly explains (as usual!), people living this way have no remedy for defects in their disposition.
Catholics following the instructions of Pope Francis are being brainwashed into following their sinful appetites.
What a curve ball in the decaying culture of death. I always anticipated that Christ's promises would mean the battles would be external and the Holy Father would help us preserve our children from the wiles of the devil outside of the Church. I'm stressing out that he's joined the chorus of brainwashing diabolical nonsense!
I've read where Ed Peters and others are finding consolation that the Holy Father's attempt to incorporate heresy into the Magisterium did not abrogate Canon 915.
I can't get any traction with the thrill.
I suppose they are thinking for those awake, alert and oriented, this gives them the Canonical license to reject the counterfeit "magisterium", without opening oneself to disciplinary actions?
Where the rubber hits the road, we have a solid 40% of priests who are unfaithful that will use the counterfeit 'magisterium' to mislead people we love. Maybe I'm underestimating how the canons will come into play, so please feel free to set me straight if there's something I'm not seeing - but I just don't see how that is going to help us. I suppose it means it will be all the more important to get out of parishes with priests who teach apostasy but an awful lot of people will be putting a lot of mileage on their cars.
