Bergolio-Effect: Secretary of the Italian Bishop's Conference Betrays Pro-Lifers for Secular Approval

(Rome) The appointed  new Secretary Generaly of the Italian Episcopal Conference hand picked by Pope Francis, Bishop Nunzio Galatino of Cassano  all'Jonio flattered the abortion lobby and distanced himself from Pro-Lifers in an interview on Monday. "I do not identify myself with the motionless faces of those who pray the rosary in front of the clinics that perform abortions."  We waited for a denial for 24 hours, says the editor of the Catholic website Nuova Bussola Quotidiana . But this denial did not come. "We have to accept it. This statement, which discloses a lack of humanity, one would expect only from the worst secularists, but it really comes from Monsignor Galantino."
The  secretary hand picked by Pope Francis  and since then practically the most powerful man in the Italian Episcopal Conference  is revealing a  "clerical arrogance"  which speaks of  "compassion" (for the women)   and contempt  for ( neighbors) life," said Riccardo Cascioli.

The governor of the Pope in Italy distances himself not only from the prayerful Pro-Lifers in front of the abortion clinics that already save hundreds of children from certain death and as many women, who they were able to keep  from making the biggest mistake of their lives. In the interview he kept a  distance from the fundamental right to life. "We have concentrated solely on a no to abortion and euthanasia in the past," said Galantino, but forget that "it comes into  existence, develops."  Therefore, an end to the resistance on behalf of  innocents, an end to the resistance against euthanasia and especially an end to the Rosary before clinics. Instead, "better quality of life for the people in their right to health and work," said the secretary of the Bishops' Conference.
"Besides the fact that it already if is no 'right to health' but possibly a right to medical treatment, Galantino  constructs an opposition that goes in deadly manner to the detriment of the child," said Cascioli. But this would in any case be something almost all  could support and propagate. The Church is the only really serious hotbed of resistance to the brutality of "progress". Only an "abstract ideological point of view" can dilute the right to life and dissolve it into a "right to health" and in a "right to work". "The truth is that you no longer want to talk about a thing that has become as  politically troublesome  a thing as abortion," said Cascioli. Not coincidentally, "Msgr Galantino even seems to be afraid, because  he instead speaks of the 'termination of pregnancy'. and  'this pratice', when he means abortion."
Galantino thus is ultimately only following Pope Francis, who distanced himself in Civiltà Cattolica interview in September by commitment to the protection of life and the Pro-Lifers, whom he accused of "obsession."   No abortion lobbyist,  could have said it "better". How now then are the statements for the protection of life  by the Pope? He also avoids meticulously  calling  things by their name and with the distancing from the "non-negotiable values", he gave them to understand that the protection of life was good and right, but ultimately has no priority.
"In addition, I would like to know who  all the bishops and priests who have spoken in these years constantly on abortion and euthanasia have been. I must have been distracted, but I know of so few in the sense that I can list them.  When John Paul II and Benedict XVI. talked about it - but certainly not exclusively - it is because they had to oppose a Church that has completely lost the sense of the "Gospel of Life", as the statement of Galantino confirmed in a startling way," said Cascioli.
"It would be nice if the Secretary of the Bishops 'Conference would at least try to think about the words said by  Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta: 'The greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a direct war, a direct killing, it which is the direct murder by the hand of the mother herself. Because if a mother can kill her own child, then there is nothing that would prevent me from killing you, and keep you  from killing me."
The pressure to conform seems to dominate the bishops. The urge to conform, to belong to  the mainstream society  seems overwhelming. Today, no one wants someone who "judges", so there are also no standards, at least not universal Christian standards any more because the standards that the world presents  as authentic, contradict the teachings of Christ. "And who would even dare to pray in front of clinics where innocent children are killed, who will not only be left by their own bishops  in the lurch, that has been happening in Europe for years, but even insulted and offended. They are the same bishops, who call heathens to the pulpit, so that they can teach Christians. Because the only ones evaluated in this new, 'non-judgmental' view who are so condemned, are Catholics.

They are abandoning the abortion ship.

This has not been The Roman Catholic Church since the liberal modernists imposed their protestant ecumenical anthropocentric vernacular but thoroughly invalid Novus Ordo (Seclorum) liturgy.

Instead we have the neo-catholic post-conciliar ecumenical assembly.

Avoid confusing two totally different paradigms as belonging to the same model. One is authentically Catholic based on Sacred liturgical Tradition and authoritative interpretation of Holy Scriptures. It still endures after some 2000 years. The other is an ever-changing, chaotic liberal modernist fabrication based on the macinations of the inner consciousness and the most immediate thought that comes into one's head. This one is about 45 years old and is slowly sinking into a quagmire of perpetual contradictions, systemic indiscipline, organised criminal activities, liturgical anarchy and doctrinal obfuscation

While Frances is our Pope, he behaves as though he is not.

Well he has certainly encouraged me to go and pray outside an abortion clinic when the occasion arises!

"I do not identify myself with the motionless faces of those who pray the rosary in front of the clinics that perform abortions."

And at the foot of the Cross as the Most Innocent of Innocents lay dying was the Blessed Virgin's face not motionless in agony for her Dear Jesus?

M. Prodigal said...

I am one of those with the rosary praying for lives and souls at the abortion mill where the unborn are dismembered and no pregnancy is ever continued after "interruption".

It just does not stop!!! I mean the heresy and confusion and anti-Catholic statements from top clergymen who are leading souls astray. God help us! The Holy Father has surrounded himself with this type of man. Where oh where are the St. John Fishers? (Oh, Cardinal Burke who has been removed from two congregations-so far)

"I do not identify myself with the motionless faces of those who pray the rosary in front of the clinics that perform abortions."

How condescending.

"motionless" and "rosary". God help us. One can only wonder how many more prelates like this are going to crawl out of the woodwork seemingly encouraged by our new reigning Pontiff.

Did Msgr Galantino forget that an angel came to Joseph to persuade him to take Mary as his wife when it became apparent she was already with child? A lot of men would just tell these poor women to get an abortion in similar circumstances.

Aversion to the rosary, aversion to Our Lady.

Dear Tancred
I don't know what was said on your blog a couple of days ago, but thank you for sticking up for Bishop Williamson. I'm not an SSPX-er, but I am rather fond of Bishop Williamson.

In a a nut-shell - if he was once a Catholic - he no longer is. No true Catholic would say such things...these men have no shame now about saying such outrageous un-Catholic things!

...and that's right - those who denigrate the Rosary do not love Our Lady and so they are not to be trusted at all! AT ALL! A BIG RED FLAG!

One statement, by one bishop and you are ready to conclude the most important anti-abortion institution on earth is "abandoning the ship? Not only that, but the statement is obvious taken out of context and translated into another language.

And the sharks that are swimming toward it are in for a surprise! The Church can't be anything but totally against the killing of life in the womb. Period.

Tancred said...

The Pope also disparaged Pro-Life movement. You haven't been paying attention.

Anonymous said...

There is no more important work in the world today than that done by people praying outside abortion clinics. Just because one bishop made a stupid remark, don't blame the billion+ member Catholic Church.

His comments are extremely evil. Also, since Francis became pope, attacks on those defending the sanctity of innocent human lives has increased in number and intensity, and this coming from those within the Church too. The diabolical disorientation is dizzying. Lord, help us to stay faithful to Thee.

The statement is in context and it is translated correctly.
Rosa, Italy

Pope Francis thinks Herodias was at the foot of the cross shouting at God about how she was lied to and cheated. No doubt he believes the disciple Jesus loved was putting on a clown nose and making selfies w/all and sundry while tweeting blow by blow updates (to show how human and full of doubts he was about the true Messiah!)... I won't go into what he thinks Mary Magdalene was doing (sure y'all get the idea about how us humans are supposed to serve our Messiah).

Meanwhile Herodias was too busy planning a charity gala and after party on Palm Sunday Eve to attend the crucifixion of John the Baptist's cousin (though she might have tried to get his head to auction off as a door prize) :

All who are catholic and considers themselves true followers of the truth, in which Mercy is not "YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO DO WHAT YOU PLEASE BECAUSE WE ARE SINNERS< WEAK>>> BUT GOD WILL FORGIVE YOU" Mercy is the twin sister of Justice and if you read evangelii gaudiim #214 you will see the true vision of Bergoglio as he in #213 writes beautiful words about abortion and how wrong that is then goes to #214 following those beautiful words with a LIE FROM THE PITS OF HELL!!! Read for yourselves:

214. Precisely because this involves the internal consistency of our message about the value of the human person, the Church cannot be expected to change her position on this question. I want to be completely honest in this regard. This is not something subject to alleged reforms or “modernizations”. It is not “progressive” to try to resolve problems by eliminating a human life. On the other hand, it is also true that we have done little to adequately accompany women in very difficult situations, where abortion appears as a QUICK SOLUTION to their profound anguish, ESPECIALLY WHEN THE LIFE DEVELOPING WITHIM THEM IS THE RESULT OF RAPE OR A SITUATION OF EXTREME POVERTY. Who can remain unmoved before such painful situations?

They abandon ship in the moment that they didn't cry heresy and instead say chose to nothing.
