#AmorisLaetitia: My Papa Offers Me A Mistress

From the unchanging Sacred Deposit of Faith [= Sacred Scripture + Holy Tradition], religious infidelity/idolatry is called immorality/fornication/adultery. The unchanging Sacred Deposit of Faith like God its Revealer does not change. When Israel committed idolatry [= playing the whore with demons/devils], even though they exchanged God, they did not change him.

Now a story about me and the wife of my youth:

I married the wife of my youth. She is pure, very beautiful, the mother of my children. She has been my companion and it has been wonderful together. She has been Mother showering me with such tender loving care.

At 11:30 AM on Friday, April 8, 2016 in Rome, a day which will live in infamy, my papa offered me a mistress saying I do not have to change my wife. My wife is still my wife, she does not, and she won’t change. Some of my uncles and aunties, some of my friends, and even some of my own brothers and sisters are telling me that the offer conditions by my papa are excellent and make it fine since my wife is not changing. To them, a tantalizingly very good offer not to be refused, they are envious. Oh, one more thing, the mistress is not attractive all! She is nothing compared to my wife, and can’t hold a candle to her, not even remotely, … and, she has been around the block … [doctrine of demons]

‘#AmorisLaetitia not a reform of rules, but a reform of the Church,’ says Archbishop Cupich

Words to terrify and literally scare the hell out of all orthodox believers!

One of the most discussed issues during the last months was the interpretation of chapter 8 of “Amoris Laetitia” about remarried divorcees. There were different interpretations: nothing changed or something changed. What is your position on that?

My position is the same as that of Pope Francis, who has indicated that the proper interpretation of “Amoris Laetitia” was given by Cardinal Christoph Schönborn and then again by the bishops of Argentina, for which the Pope noted “no further interpretation is needed.” So if people want to know what I think, they should refer to those sources. I also draw attention to the fine article written by Professor Rocco Buttiglione in L’Osservatore Romano on July 19 of this year, which I reprinted in our archdiocesan newspaper. Professor Buttiglione makes a convincing case for the continuity of the teaching of Pope Francis on these matters with his predecessors and with The Catechism of the Catholic Church.

(My emphasis)

Qual è secondo lei la riforma più importante e urgente che il Papa vorrebbe realizzare?
«L’inizio di processi che, secondo la sua personale convinzione, sono quelli che lo Spirito vuole provocare nella sua Chiesa. In quanto tali, questi processi andranno oltre gli anni del pontificato di Francesco e, orientati dallo Spirito, diventeranno irreversibili, perché saranno entrati nel cuore del popolo di Dio». – “Il Papa che vuol far brillare il volto di una Chiesa accogliente” | La Stampa | ANDREA TORNIELLI, Pubblicato il 17/12/2016 – Intervista con Víctor Manuel Fernández, rettore della Uca: gli 80 anni di Francesco, un primo bilancio del pontificato e il cuore del suo messaggio

In Coena Domini Mass 2016.03.24, Pope Francis: “Do as I say, not as I do!”

The Teacher and LORD: “I have given you an example, that you also should do as I have done to you.” – Jn 13:15 (RSVCE)

His Vicar: “Do as I say, not as I do!”

Do as I say:

The Pope decrees that not only men may be chosen for the washing of the feet in the Liturgy of Holy Thursday, Vatican City, Thursday, 21 January 2016 (VIS)

Not as I do!:

The Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, said the Vatican norms are meant for traditional liturgies in Catholic communities, not necessarily a unique papal Mass where the overall message is one of universal brotherhood and the love of God for all his children.

“We must always take the pastoral context into account,” Lombardi said in an email. “Norms that are appropriate for a parish celebration aren’t to be considered binding on a very unique celebration of the pope in a refugee center with a non-Christian majority.” – Pope Washes Feet of Muslim Migrants, Says ‘We Are […] by LUIGI NAVARRO AND NICOLE WINFIELD, ASSOCIATED PRESS, CASTELNUOVO DI PORTO, Italy — Mar 24, 2016, 5:16 PM ET

… on the very day his supposed Teacher and LORD, whose Vicar he is, who having loved his own who were in the world and loving them to the end said to them:

If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you also should do as I have done to you.Jn 13:14-15 (RSVCE)

Who does the pope love, who are his own in the world?

About Blessed Marie-Clémentine Anuarite Nengapeta (c. December 29, 1939 – December 1, 1964)

Blessed Marie-Clémentine Anuarite Nengapeta

Blessed Anuarite was a member of the Holy Family Sisters in then Belgian Congo today Congo DR. She became a martyr about the age of 25 when she was killed during the anarchy that followed Congo’s Mulele rebellion led by Simba rebels, in 1964.

It was in November 1964 when postulants, novices and religious sisters at Bafwabaka convent were taken to Isiro under the guise of protecting them. While in Isiro, Blessed Anuarite was singled out by one of the Simba leaders, Colonel Ngalo. He tried to persuade Anuarite to become his wife but she refused him. Colonel Pierre Olombe then offered to persuade Anuarite, on behalf of Ngalo but then decided he wanted her for himself and tried to rape her. Blessed Anuarite fiercely resisted Olombe telling him she preferred to die rather than commit sin. She was badly battered and in a fit of rage Olombe ordered some Simba fighters to stab Anuarite with their bayonets. Olombe is then said to have shot Anuarite in the chest.

Born Nengapeta sometime before the year 1941, Blessed Anuarite was baptised as Alphonsine. She was baptised together with her mother and some of her sisters in 1943. Anuarite was actually her sister’s name and became hers only through a clerical error. A Belgian sister who accepted her when she was presented for registration in order that she starts primary school, wrote her down as Alphonsine Anuarite. When she became a sister at the Holy Family convent, in 1959, she took the name of Sr. Marie-Clementine.

Blessed Anuarite lived most of her religious life in Bafwabaka area in the north eastern part of Congo DR. During her life as a religious sister, Sr. Marie-Clementine was known for her zeal in serving others and working hard to improve the lot of those under her care.

Since Blessed Anuarite died in 1964, this year marks fifty years from the time of her martyrdom and the Church in Congo has been commemorating the Jubilee year of Blessed Anuarite with various spiritual activities. According to Fr. Santedi, the secretary general at the Congolese episcopal conference, the Congolese Bishops see Blessed Anuarite as a role model who can inspire both Catholics and non-Catholics in Congo DR. They regard her as an example of a woman who, if emulated, can restore reconciliation and honour to Congo DR’s tainted image of violence against women and of endless civil wars. During her beatification on 15 August 1985 (Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary) in then Zaire, Saint Pope John Paul II likened her act of forgiving her aggressor before she died to that of Christ. Before succumbing to the blows of her killer, Blessed Anuarite had the strength to turn to him and say, “I forgive you because you do not know what you are doing.”

If Paul VI, a great man, in a difficult situation in Africa, permitted nuns to use contraceptives in cases of rape”, then …

A. The permission never reached Blessed Marie-Clémentine in time.

B. The Simba fighters did not allow the permission to get to Blessed Marie-Clémentine.

C. Permission was not for native religious.

D. Permission was only for nuns and not for religious sisters.

E. Blessed Marie-Clémentine was being more Catholic than the Pope.

F. What kind of a father was Paul the VI if good fathers will not give permission to their precious daughters to use contraception when in danger of rape? And what kind of a father is Pope Francis to propose him in this manner?

G. This young maiden Blessed Marie-Clémentine,  running to the odour of the ointments of the Queen of all the virgin choir, loved her Queen and Lady exceedingly.

H. Blessed Marie-Clémentine was madly in love with and faithful to her LORD and Spouse and wishing to preserve her honor for him, imitated those who had gone before her like SS. Maria Goretti, Agnes, Agatha, and Lucy.

Bl.  Marie-Clémentine and SS. Maria Goretti, Agnes, Agatha, and Lucy.
Pray for the Pope and pray for us.

Since it is lawful to take life in the legitimate defense of one’s material goods, it is evidently also lawful to do so in defense of chastity which is a good of a much higher order. With regard to honor or reputation, it is not lawful to kill one to prevent an insult or an attack upon our reputation which we believe he intends, or threatens. Nor may we take a life to avenge an insult already offered. The proceeding would not be defense of our honor or reputation, but revenge. Besides, in the general estimation honor and reputation may be sufficiently protected without taking the life of the offender. – Catholic Encyclopedia > Self-Defense > Honor

“Papal Response” to ChurchMilitant.com’s ‘Public Criticism of the Pope’


What does the Church Teach?

Q. May lay people manifest to the sacred pastors their opinion on matters which pertain to the good of the Church, and also make their opinion known to the other Christian faithful?

A. According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church 907:

“In accord with the knowledge, competence, and preeminence which they possess, [lay people] have the right and even at times a duty to manifest to the sacred pastors their opinion on matters which pertain to the good of the Church, and they have a right to make their opinion known to the other Christian faithful, with due regard to the integrity of faith and morals and reverence toward their pastors, and with consideration for the common good and the dignity of persons.” – [CIC, can. 212 § 3.]

Thus according to the Code of Canon Law this right and even at times duty is an obligation and right belonging to all the Christian Faithful and from the Catechism of the Catholic Church it also what comes with participation in Christ’s prophetic office.

“Papal Response” to ChurchMilitant.com’s ‘Public Criticism of the Pope’

 Q. How has the Pope responded to public criticism?

A1. When Pope Francis called Mario Palmaro, who had criticized him, the late writer recounted that Pope Francis had during the call responded by saying that he 

“understood that the critics had been moved by love for the Pope.”

A2. Recently in the letter Pope Francis sent to Antonio Socci after receiving the latter’s book, the Pope wrote:

In reality, also criticism helps us to walk on the righteous path of the Lord.

In their article “The Pope Himself Says: Your Criticism is Good for Me” – And What will the Post-Synod Document Say? RORATE CÆLI provides a translated commentary by Roberto de Mattei on the pope’s words:

These few lines demolish a certain “papalotry” widespread in conservative circles. The Pontiff states that criticizing the Pope is not only licit but can “be very good” for the Pope himself, by helping him to “walk on the righteous path of the Lord”. With the term papolatry, we mean undue divinization of the Pope’s figure, which is very different from the veneration and devout respect we owe him for the office he holds. Frankness, also in criticizing, notes Socci, may be of help to the Bishop of Rome, “particularly when the prevailing mentality exaggerates with adulation” (p.92). The great Dominican theologian Melchoir Cano states: “Peter has no need of our lies or adulation. Those who blindly, indiscriminately defend every decision by the Supreme Pontiff are those who undermine most the authority of the Holy See: instead of reinforcing its foundations, they destroy them”.

Concluding, I see ChurchMilitant.com’s mistaken position on ‘Public Criticism of the Pope’ as shirking from their right and obligation as indicated by Church teaching,  a failure to participate in Christ’s prophetic office, and a missed opportunity to do something for Pope Francis that according to the pope himself, may help him.

The Deus Ex Machina Blog

Card. GeorgeIt was with great sadness that this blogger learned of the passing of Francis Cardinal George OMI. As a life long Chicagoan, not to mention a product of the city’s Catholic school system (K through B.Sc.), I still vividly remember the dark days of the Catholic Church in Chicago, the period between the passing of John Cardinal Cody and the appointment of Cardinal George.

With respect to the man himself, I consider Cardinal George a man of good will and an exemplary transitional figure that guided the Catholic Church in Chicago and in the United States from the post-conciliar “neo-modernist theology of death” back onto the road of the ONE TRUE FAITH, the FAITH that was given by Our Lord to His apostles and handed down through the generation of Faithful. In another era, Cardinal George would have been a GREAT CARDINAL. Having said that, I think posterity will be…

Pope Francis’ Martians


Just as if, for example, tomorrow an expedition of Martians came … green, with long noses and big ears, just like children draw them … and one were to say, ‘I want to be baptized!’. What would happen? | We are all ostiaries (12 May 2014) | Morning Meditation in the Chapel of the Domus Santae Marthae | Pope Francis

Pope Francis’ Martians are  “people living in such unions [same sex] request[ing] a child’s baptism” cf. Instrumentum Laboris 2014 No. 120.

[Update 4/26/2015]:

In Baptism, join new faithful to the People of God. Do not ever refuse Baptism to anyone who asks! With the Sacrament of Penance, forgive sins in the name of Christ and the Church. And I, in the name of Jesus Christ, the Lord, and his Bride, the Holy Church, I ask you not to grow weary of being merciful. In the confessional, you are to going to forgive, not to condemn! Imitate the Father who never gets tired of forgiving. With holy oil, you will give relief to sick. Celebrating the sacred rites and raising at various times of day prayers of praise and supplication, you will make the voice of the People of God and of all humanity. – Pope Francis, Pope’s Homily to New Priests on 52nd World Day of Prayer for Vocations | ZENIT.
