Papal Dressing Down of the German Bishops: German Church Not the Most Progressive, But Most Desolate

Ad Limina Visit of the German Bishops with Pope
(Rome) In the Catholic Church there is a conflict over the demand to give  Communion to the divorced and remarried. There is also uncertainty about what Pope Francis will present in his Post-Synodal Exhortation. According to the published opinion of the secular media the "German group" has prevailed at the Synod of Bishops last October, led by Cardinal Walter Kasper. In their ad limina - Visit of November 20 Pope Francis, however, told the German bishops, however, that their church was not "the most progressive, but the most desolate," as the Vatican expert Sandro Magister reports.
The German bishops, received a stern dressing down by the Pope:
- He lamented the lack of a "Catholic profile" in charitable institutions and Catholic schools.
- He deplored the decline in Mass attendance and the disappearance of the Sacrament of Penance.
- He blamed that there are  "always new structures" created for fewer and fewer believers.
- He exhorted the bishops to be "teachers of the faith" who "pass it down and live it in the living community of the universal Church."
- He recalled that in the parishes "the valuable work by lay faithful are not a substitute for the priestly ministry or should this make it appear even as a mere option," because "there is no Eucharist without a priest".
- He called for the "unconditional protection of life  from the moment of conception until natural death" because "we can not compromise here without even we ourselves becoming guilty of participating in the throwaway culture".

Out of Control communion for divorced and remarried was not an issue

A single question was not addressed by Pope Francis, however said Master: "The communion for the divorced and remarried, which is  now is a common practice in Germany that is accepted de facto by many bishops and regardless of   what was said at the Synod of Bishops and without  waiting which operative decisions of the Pope touch on it, as it requires." 
Communion to the divorced and remarried is spreading rapidly in some areas "It's a phenomenon that is getting out of control," says Magister, "without Rome, which had instigated this process, issuing any statement."

I am posting this as a comment to as many blogs I can. Please consider joining in to make reparation:

Father Jerabek just posted this today, and asks for us to join him in making reparation for the deliberate desecration of consecrated hosts:

In Spain, where an ‘artist’ deliberately desecrated 242 consecrated hosts, ( pilfered by attending Mass where he received in the hand), the bishops response to this profanation is woefully inadequate. Please, read the rest here at Father's blog.

Nothing but a political show.

Pope Fran says:

No conversion in Catholic schools:
No Catholic God:
Kasper does theology on his knees when he presses for communion for those in habitual state of mortal sin (oh my no confession (!!!!!!)).

Travel w/your pet rabbi and imam both of whom deny the divinity of Jesus Christ:

It's all about as believable as Pope Fran lusting after women while cross-dressing (at wild parties!).

Pope Fran can't convert children in Catholic Schools to Catholicism, but can "deploy them as Agents of Change in the cause of sustainable development."

Last week the Pontifical Academy for Sciences held a workshop which it was announced would be discussing how to deploy children as “agents of change” in the cause of sustainable development. The workshop was addressed by leading architects of the international population control movement, including Jeffrey Sachs, special advisor to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon.
Fran and those he addressed all need to be thrust into the pit of hell w/Satan so that they can't roam about the world seeking the ruin of souls. St. Michael defend us!

Paul VI and Pius XII praised the Luciferian UN as a "great hope for mankind".(1956 & 1965 respectively)
So,a "Son of the Revolution" (Francis) is involved with agents of chaos (UN) & we are shocked?
