Bergoglio's Disenchantment in a "mensis horribilis"? -- Pope Tirade Against Critics

Pope Salutes Like an American President
(Rome) for Pope Francis the month of October 2014 was a mensis horribilis (Messa in Latino). Although the Synod of Bishops on the family went according to plan in terms of support from the mass media, it did not in terms of the Cardinals and Bishops who exercise their pastoral office and take responsibility in the Church. Their resistance was underestimated by the  enthusiastic innovators of novelties. The papal note in the sermon for the beatification of Paul VI., God  "has no fear of new things" was looking back at the Synod of the pale smack one of those cartoon balloons with big words, but theologically modest or out of place content. What "fear" should have God and before these "innovations"? Such  inappropriate language that could be understood as a threat even within the church. It's the attempt at a provisional balance sheet of the Synod of Bishops.

Major Archbishop calls on Pope to read the Catechism

The Pope had to Sviatoslav Shevchuk, Grand Archbishop of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church opened the Catechism of the Catholic Church in the General Congregation. A harrowing situation, at least for more recent Church history,  of unprecedented embarrassment. A Metropolitan and Synod father, who isn't instructing the believers in the Catechism, but the Pope himself. Literally speaking, Shevchuk spoke of the need "to send the faithful and the Pope a clear message" that "the family is  a solid and sacramental bond between a man and a woman," as Il Foglio reported.
Pope Francis, who is celebrated by the international media world, sees himself facing increasing  and unusual criticism. The journalist Antonio Socci has been so distraught by the Argentine counterpoint to Benedict XVI.  that he has fallen into a previously unknown form of the conservative anti-popery. The publication of his latest book earlier this month "Non è Francesco" (He is not Francis) does not hesitate to describe the reigning Pope "in yet the first part, where he tries to prove the invalidity of the election of Francis, in which Socci,equipped with common sense can convince readers," said Messa in Latino.

Antonio Socci's J'accuse

However, the second part of the book has  interesting documentation of  numerous fractures, which Francis has caused when compared to the previous pontificate. Socci has issued a weighty J'accuse, to which those before can not close their eyes, trying to escape its responsibility in the Church and before God.  Antonio Socci was never a representative of  tradition, but whose "conservative" direction was with John Paul II., wanted to form a counterweight to the devastation of the post-conciliar period. The book of the Rector of the Italian School of Journalism in Perugia is already out in Italy in the bestseller lists, although some Catholic bookstores, such as the chain of Paoline, refuse the sale. The sales success of Socci's book shows, in any case, that not all Catholics and non-Catholics are willing to form their opinion about the current pontificate only by the benevolent basis of papal hugs in front of cameras in great humanity.
The Synod has become practically a debacle for Pope Francis. However, the Church has taken significant damage, since the publication of the now shredded interim report, sent the wrong signals out to the people,  supported by the mass media. Signals that contribute to further confusion, since the message  desired by the Pope to the people was more clerly emphasized at the Synod than ever before: Everyone is free to do what he wants and with the blessing of the Church.

Vote of no Confidence  in Synod Against Francis

Cardinal Napier even spoke of  "irreparable damage" to the Synod in his indignant, but lucid first speech. The oxen were released and no matter how good the document of the Synod could be, they will not return. Ultimately, the Pope reached, though not in  desired form, the stated goal which is now obvious,   to hurl two thousand years of doctrine into the dustbin and not to do so with extensive encyclicals, but by some impromptu interviews in a few sentences.
However, this strategy has cost Bergoglio a high price. The Pope has been deprived of trust 17 months after his decision to have a  "parliament" as a collegial decision making  body in the Church of the Synod with which he attempted to make change. In the world of politics, this means, depending on the political system, an immediate end to a government or the beginning of her impending end. In fact, there has never been, under any pope, such an open and sometimes even vehement public opposition to the head of the Catholic Church.

Where Francis Writes About Collegiality Is There Manipulation Within?

It also seems that the last church members  have realized that Francis, despite his demonstrable  show about expressions of collegiality and freedom of speech, does not shrink from manipulation and the oppression of opinion  to enforce its objectives. The unspeakable interim report was written by the Archbishops Forte and Fernandez and approved by the Pope as far as it is now clear. The Synod were so outraged that they themselves rejected the long-held custom in the Church and not only out of respect and courtesy, attacked the material executors, when they meant the Pope, but those directly underlying the Pope.
In their rebellion in the Synod Hall made the Cardinals around Francis, accused the principal executors and not his henchmen. And the accusations  in themselves: The synod accused the Pope of having done "great damage" to the Church "great damage" inflicted, as Cardinal Raymond Burke formulated. Major Archbishop Shevchuk fordete the Pope frankly, to study the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Leading Cardinals like Prefect Gerhard Müller, Camillo Ruini or Raymond Burke  even denied the Pope a greeting.

Synod to Pope: "We don't seek cheap populism"

And how different then is  a pointed criticism of the Pope  in the patience of the Synod Working Group is to be read in Italicus B. "We're not looking for the cheap populism lulling everything and packed in cotton wool."
The American Cardinal Raymond Burke was  the public opponent of the Pope throughout the Synod.  A man of particular integrity, great piety and love for the traditional rite as well as distinctive intellectual ability. We will see whether the Pope will dare after this synod to dismiss the cardinal as Prefect of the Apostolic Signatura. Even if this should be the case, and Burke's room for maneuver and information access would be restricted, the Pope has found his challenger and who has the courage is no small thing,  in the face of religious practice and education to oppose the Pope publicly.

Cardinals Asked Benedict XVI., To Slow Francis

"Pope Francis has been undermined by  a serious mistake," said Messa in Latino in attacking the family, the central theme of the pontificate of John Paul II., who has significantly influenced the Catholics living today, and the pontificate of Benedict XVI. with the "non-negotiable values". "The lukewarm may be satisfied by moral laxity," but not the really faithful who consciously or unconsciously understand that this hand should be applied to substance.  There would probably  have been less resistance if the Pope had launched his attack in the area ecumenism, which is more personally distant to most. 
According to La Repubblica several cardinals contacted Pope Benedict XVI in the course of the Synod of Bishops . and asked him to slow down Pope Francis. Benedict XVI. is supposed to  have answered them: "I'm not the Pope, do not turn to me." Nevertheless, he sent a friendly embassy to Pope Francis, in which he again offered his theological  help. An aid that has not been used to date.

German Church Leaned Too Far Out the Windo Together with the Pope  

Who with Pope Francis leaned too far out of the window? An aging 68s clergy and the "German Church", as they say from Rome considers with a view to the north and the entire German-speaking world. That rich, but inwardly rotten church, having special regard for the church tax, although it is a huge machine that mainly manages itself and the faith more clearly undermines than it supports. A Church that also does not shrink, thanks to their money, in negatively affecting poorer churches and  destroying their clergy through scholarships to their schools and universities. The "German Church" stands for  "aberrosexual-understanding" and the "gradation of relations"  which is more naked than ever before in Cardinals Reinhard Marx and Christoph Schönborn.
Cardinal Walter Kasper, the idea man and spokesman of  the upheaval with papal blessing, has been undermined by his  derailment by African confreres and having revealed himself as a bold faced liar himself.  [He's been claiming to be Catholic for more than half-a-century, no?] Anyone who could take his place in the second part of the Synod of Bishops in 2015, currently still seems unclear. Cardinal Marx is indeed loud and strong minded,  but is considered a theological lightweight compared to Kasper, Cardinal Schönborn again is seen as too hesitating. Absolutely no cardinal is likely to seize  this role  after the debacle.
The Rhenish alliance is solely fused into a nationwide German-Austrian-Swiss. Not even the French wanted to participate any more. The Latin Americans, made sickly by the aid of the "German Church" and undermined by decades of liberation theology menace, were in Rome for Bergoglio, but the North Americans who are used to the struggle over the family in  policy, and the Africans along with the majority of Asians, have a healthy attitude on the subject, and vigorously opposed  the Pope.
A special role in Europe is still played by the Polish Church, which primarily has  substantive reasons. But  the Poles were also filed with outrage, who viewed Bergoglio's anti-Wojtyla position, whose relationship to Marxism is quite unclear. These days, the 30th anniversary of the death of a priest kidnapped and murdered by the Communists,  Jerzy Popieluszko.  Catholics in Poland are sensitive as they resist   the former communists positions represented by  Pope Francis in their gender agenda, abortion, "gay marriage" and the legalization of incest.

Discomfort for Months Already Smoldering Under the Surface

The explosion of the resistance during the Synod of Bishops were signals that already subliminally must have prevailed in the months before in high church circles, a strong discomfort about this pontificate. One reason is the almost unbearable tension  exhibited before the cameras between collegiality and humility, while his actual church government bore tyrannical trains. That applies not only to the Roman Curia. The humiliation, as the President of the Italian Bishops' Conference, Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco, by Francis, without any consultation appointed a new deputy and a new Secretary-General, or the U.S. episcopate by the recent appointment of a progressive outsider to one of the most important episcopal sees in the United States in Chicago, was carefully noted abroad. In addition there are arbitrary dismissals without due process that did not give the humiliated a chance to justify himself. The most recent example is the deposed bishop of Ciudad del Este Livieres Rogelio, who was sent by the Pope without any justification, in the desert. Although summoned to Rome and asking for an audience with the Pope, was refused any conversation.

Bergoglio "a cunning Jesuit who does not simply concede the field" - Pope Tirade after Synod Debacle

"Pope Bergoglio is a fighting and cunning Jesuit, in contrast to Benedict XVI. who will not simply leave the field," said Messa in Latino . This is already shown in his final speech to the Synod in which he spoke of "moments of desolation,   tension and  temptations". When ever has such language been used in the past centuries, in its recent history in the context of a Church Congregation?
The Pope lamented in his closing speech to the Synod of Bishops last October 18 of a "negative hardening" and that they "should not be surprised by God" proposing, "the God of the surprises". Then he swore at the Synod Fathers, the Bergoglianesque  "surprises" were refused by "zealots, scrupulous, fussy and so-called traditionalists and intellectualists".

"Bishop of Rome" Suddenly Discovered He is Pope and Reminded Who's in Charge

In the same speech, Francis suddenly discovered he is not only the Bishop of Rome, as he otherwise demonstratively refers to himself, but the Pope. He was suddenly attentive to his prerogatives as "supreme pastor and teacher of all the faithful", which is equipped with the "highest power in the universal Church". A clear message to remember who's in charge.
In his homily for the not uncontroversial beatification of Pope Paul VI. he then unmistakeably said: "On this day of the beatification of Pope Paul VI . his words come to my mind, with which he established the Synod of Bishops, carefully inquiring  the signs of the times, [we seek] to adjust the ways and methods [...] the growing needs of our day, as well as the altered circumstances of society ' (Acts . Letter Motu Proprio Apostolica sollicitudo ). "

"Early Autumn" of a Pontificate that Could not Advance Its "October Revolution"

Nevertheless, even in his well-meaning comments like the Huffington Post mentions "premature Fall of  a Leadership, which is unable to advance its October Revolution". Has the swan song of this pontificate already begun?
This much is certain: Pope Francis has lost his aura of rays. His trees do not grow in the proverbial sky. The unchurched press will test him further for support and complain about conservatives who plot against the Pope. There will still be millions of people who fall into ecstasy, because they crudely see the Pope as "meal". The church, however, is more and more believers and decision-makers seem to be aware that the Church  can not make a state with this Pope.

Impeachment or "lame duck"?

"Pope Francis now his Williamson case,  which Benedict XVI  had the consequence of open rebellion in further parts of the Church, "said Messa in Latino . For Francis, it's not about one person, but an assembly, which is a stumbling block and brings this pontificate to the ground of reality, as always, Pope Bergoglio will now react to it, possibly even with a still frenetic activism.
Perhaps a description of the situation can be  borrowed from big politics: If Pope Francis were  President of the US would he in the worse case, face the threat of an impeachment, impeachment trial in the better case, he would be for the rest of his remaining term of office a Lame Duck , a "lame duck ".

After reading this, I am more convinced than ever that Benedict XVI is a coward, and was a whining crybaby coward to resign his office. Because of his cowardice, we now have Francis.

But Francis can be brought down, and let us hope and pray that the resolve of the magnificent Cardinals and Bishops in the Synod who stood up to Francis and his garbage can of assistants will have even more Grace and strength to continue the fight and bring Francis down,
Francis is perhaps the Anti-Christ of the old prophecy. He and his supporters must be inspired by evil. They must be removed.
I pray that tens of thousands and hundreds of thousands of good Catholics join the fight against the Pope and his supporters.

May God in His Mercy grants us a young and totally orthodox and traditional Pope in a year or two....and undo all the damage of Francis and his minions.

Benedict came down from the cross and left us as orphans. And Stepdad likes to beat us.

We should pray that Francis accept the Holy Ghost and repent, If I were him, I would be examining my conscience and my philosophical assumptions. And I would ask for the most Catholic confessor I could find.

Francis didn't sound so good at the beatification of Paul VI. Weak voice and gasping. Maybe he will not be around long. I know it's probably a sin, but if I were to turn on the TV or my computer one morning ad hear or see the headline... "Pope Francis has massive heart attack", I would not rejoice...because that would be genuinely evil.....but I wouldn't care either. And by his agenda and actions, that's how he's made a lot of faithful Catholics feel. I don't hope that he dies, but I would not be surprised...and wouldn't care. I'd just hope for a new CATHOLIC pope.

I´m not a big fan of Francis myself, but I don´t get how someone who call themselves catholics can be wishing and praying for their pope demise... .Well, you only need one crazy out there who really believe that Francis is all some are saying he is ( false pope, heretic, trying to destroy the papacy and bring down the Chruch..) and wish granted.

REQUIREMENT for repentance to receive God's Mercy - Jesus Mk 1:15;
Jn 8:11.

CCC: " 1451 Among the penitent's acts contrition occupies first place. Contrition is sorrow of the soul
and detestation for the sin committed,
together with the resolution not to sin again."

It is NOT Pastoral, Charitable or Merciful to affirm, condone or assist in the mortal sins of others.
One becomes a participant or remote participant in the sin if -
CCC: " 1868 Sin is a personal act. Moreover, we have a responsibility for the sins committed by others when we cooperate in them:
- by participating directly and voluntarily in them;
- by ordering, advising, praising, or approving them;
- by not disclosing or not hindering them when we have an obligation to do so;
- by protecting evil-doers.

On the contrary, Benedict was a compromised pope and incapable of anything other than ultimately liberal modernist solutions, for example, the final hybridsation of the liturgy for the Western Latin(less) Rirte Church.
Wake up and see him for what he was - an ecumenist and pantheist in the mold of his predecessor who left his personalised papacy and the institutional church in ruins. To have advocated and sponsored the rapid Conanisation of such a person was a characteristic reflection of his own liberal modernist papal judgement

Tancred said...

The FSSP doesn't offer a hybrid and Summorum Pontificum, while it takes the wind out of some vagus clergy's sails on the way to the grand stand, wasn't widely hailed as a liberal solution.

It's been unbelievable, unbelievable! Until you realized that it was part of what Our Blessed Mother had been warning us all the time, if we do not repent.
At La Salette: "Rome will lose its faith."
At Akita: "It will be bishop against bishop, cardinals against cardinals."
At Fatima [through Little Jacinta]: "More souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason."
The battle has begun; it's not the end. Do not abandon the Church as she is being crucified by her own sons. Stay with the Blessed Mother at the foot of the cross and seek shelter under her mantle.
And pray, pray, fast, sacrifice. Make the Five Saturday devotion of Confession, Communion, and the Holy Rosary in honor of Her Immaculate Heart. Do not lose heart because we know how it's going to end: "Her Immaculate Heart will triumph."
