Heresy Charge Against "Black Pope" -- Pope Francis and Cardinal Müller Are Presented With Heresy Charge Against Jesuit General

Jesuit General Arturo Sosa Absacal left of Pope Francis: is the
"Black Pope" spreading heresy?
(Rome) Next Sunday, Pope Francis will visit the small diocese of Carpi in the Po Valley.  A courageous priest of this diocese is currently pestering the Pope. He raises the question with a memorandum of whether the new Jesuit Father General, Arturo Sosa Absacal, spreads heresies.

Memorandum against the "Black Pope"

The priest is Don Roberto Bertacchini and is a pupil of three priests of stature, the German Jesuit, Father Heinrich Pfeiffer, art historian at the Gregoriana in Rome, and the two Italian Jesuits, Father Francesco Tata, former religious prosecutor of Italy, and Father Piersandro Vanzan, Augustine connoisseur and leading author of the Roman Jesuit paper, Civiltà Cattolica . The reference to his Jesuit teachers is not without significance in the matter. Bertacchini was ordained priest in 2009 by the then Archbishop Carlo Ghidelli of Lanciano-Ortona.
Last week, as the Vaticanist Sandro Magister reports, Don Bertacchini sent both Pope Francis and Cardinal Gerhard Müller a memorandum. On six pages, the priest critically comments on a recent interview of the new General Superior of the Jesuit Order, who has been in office since October 2016. The Venezuelan Arturo Sosa Abasca  stands very close to Pope Francis, himself Jesuit.

Does the Jesuit General Want a "Christianity without Christ"?

The Jesuit general had represented theses in the interview, which are "so serious that they can not be passed over without silence, without making one's self complicit." Bertacchini accuses the "Black Pope", as the Jesuit general is traditionally called, of speaking of  "a Christianity without Christ".
Magister published Bertacchini's memorandum . Giuseppe Rusconi, the Swiss Vaticanista, published the interview where he criticized him last February 18. Arturo Sosa had reviewed the text and released it for publication.
Bertacchini's criticism is centered on the massive doubts expressed by the Jesuit General about the credibility of the Holy Scriptures. Arturo Sosa made fun of it. Rusconi addressed himself to criticism of the controversial papal Amoris laetitia . The words of Jesus were opposed to the admission of remarried divorced persons to the Sacraments. Sosa replied sloppily that nobody could know exactly what Jesus had said "really," because no one had "a tape recorder" with him.
According to Bertacchini, the Jesuit General says that the words of Jesus on the indissolubility of marriage are not a theological fixed point, but only the point of departure for the doctrine, which must then be developed "comfortably." In this way, however, the exact opposite could be represented, in other words the compatibility of divorce and Christian life."

Jesuit genius "too smart" to openly represent a heresy

Bertacchini emphasizes that Arturo Sosa Absacal SJ, "is too smart to fall into an obvious heresy, which in some respects is even worse. It is, therefore, necessary to follow the thread of his reasoning."
In an interview, the Jesuit General asked whether the evangelists were credible or not. His answer: One must distinguish. He thus implied, by way of a roundabout way, that it is not said, about the credibility of the Gospels. He thus questions the truthfulness of Jesus' whole doctrine of faith. The Jesuit had been careful to go into details. He remained general, but nevertheless offered a statement destructive in its core. If we consider that, in all his statements on marriage and the newly remarried divorced, Pope Francis never cited the words of the Lord on the indissolubility of marriage, the thrust of the Jesuit General would be clear. Bertacchini added:
"If the Pope does not quote these passages, it means that he has made a distinction and does not consider it authentic. They are therefore not binding. But all the popes have taught the contrary! So what? They will be wrong. Or they have said true things and taught for their time, but not for ours. "
The Jesuit General does not say it apertis verbis, but interprets it and lets it show through.
"This gives the Pope's a reading to the  family pastoral, which deviates from the traditional doctrine."

Jesuit General: "We know today that Jesus never taught that marriage is indissoluble"

Sosa asserts nothing less than that
"We know today," that Jesus probably, probably almost certainly, never taught that marriage is indissoluble. The evangelists would have misunderstood this."
"On the other hand, the Sensus fidei tells us that the evangelists are credible. Our Jesuit General, however, rejects this credibility and even ignores the fact that St. Paul received this doctrine from the teaching as directly following Jesus, and passed it on to his congregations." (1 Cor 7: 10-11).
According to Bertacchini, the consensus of the Synoptics is "too clear" in the rejection of  adultery.  Moreover, St. Paul reaffirms this doctrine in the Epistle to the Ephesians and even strengthens it. He reaffirmed it by quoting the passage from the book of Genesis, which Jesus also quoted, and strengthened it because Christ loved the Church in an indissoluble way, so much so that he gave his life for it and beyond his earthly life. This faithfulness of the Lord is what Paul calls the model of marital fidelity.
There is, therefore, evidently a continuity between the pre-Easter and the post-Easter teachings. Equally obvious is the break with Judaism, which retained the possibility of the repudiation. Bertacching asks the following questions: "If Paul himself refers to Jesus for this break, what is the meaning of the Gospels? Where should this leap come from which determined the practice of the early Church, if not of Christ?"
It should be remembered that divorce was also permitted in the Greco-Roman sphere, and that a form of the concubinage existed, which could easily lead to a later marriage, like the life of St Augustine shows. The rejection of a abandonment, divorce, concubinage constitutes a cultural breach, a phenomenon which is decisive in the history of culture, what should it point back to, if not to Jesus? And if Jesus is the Christ, why should the faithfulness of the Gospels be doubted?
"Apart from this, if Jesus is not to have said these words, from whence comes the drastic commentary of the disciples in Matthew 19:10 (" then it is not good to marry at all?") Among these disciples was also the evangelist himself who does not strike a good figure. They understood late what Jesus taught them because they were then still dependent on the traditions of their time that Jesus criticizes. "From a historical point of view, the pericope Mt 19, 3-12 is credible in every respect," the priest said.
Bertacchini then goes into detail on the "dogmatic horizon" of the statements of the Jesuit General. In it, he expanded his criticism and extends it to a recent article in the Roman Jesuit journal Civilta Cattolica, with the Jesuit Giancarlo Pani, where the prohibition of female priesthood is questioned. Bertacchini criticizes the fact that the solemn gospel, which calls for infallibility, is questioned without hesitation. The priest criticizes this work of subversion with the aim of destroying safe dams.
What will Pope Francis do with the inscription of Don Roberto Bertacchini? What will CDF Prefect Müller do with it?

Jesuit Periodical Publishes Anti-Christian Caricatures by "Charlie Hebdo" Out of "Solidarity"

(Paris), the French Jesuit journal Études published, in "solidarity" with the victims of the attack in Paris, anti-Catholic cartoons of the radical left-wing satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo. In contrast, the Jesuit Father Jean-François Thomas took objection.
"I have no illusions about the effect of my protest, but I still want him to put it forward, because I know that a considerable part of the Jesuits in my community feels the same, but can not express or does not dare to express."  With these words Father Thomas, a French Jesuit, began  a letter which he sent to the competent religious superiors to protest against the Jesuit magazine Études.

Scurrilous "Solidarity"

The solidarity with the victims of the attack on Paris during these  days of highest media coverage, is yielding strange blooms.  Catholic voices warn of false solidarity with the anti-Christian ideology of radical left-wing blade.
Unlimited, however, is the "solidarity" of the Jesuit magazine Études who made ​​the decision to reprint "some cartoons relating to the Catholic Church."  This magazine will show their "solidarity with our brothers and  the other victims who were  murdered," they said.
One of the four printed Charlie Hebdo-cartoons shows the crucified Jesus, asking "to remove the nails," so that he could take part in the conclave. Another cartoon was a salute to and  editorial about the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI. It shows the Pope in homosexual outfit saying, "Free at last". The Jesuit magazine did not publish the most blasphemous among all the anti-Christian Charlie Hebdo cartoons, those against the Holy Trinity. We do not even wish to give words to this representation.

Freedom of blasphemy?

"We share, so I hope at least, not the 'values' of this weekly newspaper," writes Father Thomas. "The horror of the attack can not" make us forget that "freedom of expression is not a freedom to insult   believers daily and even to blaspheme God." The Jesuit insists that "there is no anti-blasphemy law" needed, but "some common sense, good taste and a little bit more respect." Humor, even "unpleasant, can make you laugh," but vulgarity, "which is made absolute, is truly lamentable and causes only new hatred and still attracts more hate."

The Society of Jesus is not Charlie Hebdo

The last issue before the assassination speaks volumes. It bristles with cartoons against God, Mary and the birth of Jesus. It is debatable to be able to publish blasphemies against the "right" of the satire newspaper.  "But a Jesuit magazine  who does these things is an outrage. The most heinous is that against Benedict XVI. The ridicule of the drama of the crucifixion is pathetic. I never thought that certain Jesuits could laugh at something like this. Personally, I cry every day because of my sins and because of the suffering of Christians, many persecuted by the editors of Études, have been not nearly defended with the same zeal," said Father Thomas.
Études has been in publication since 1856 and today carries the subtitle "magazine for contemporary culture." The editor since 2013 is the theologian and physicist Father François EUVE SJ. Father EUVE is the holder of Teilhard de Chardin-Chair at the Centre Sèvres, the Jesuit College of Paris. The Chair is funded and awarded by the Fondation Teilhard de Chardin.The Foundation was founded in 1962 and owns the copyright to all the writings of the late Jesuit Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (+1955) and the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle located in Paris.

Fr Hugh Thwaites RIP

Edit: it's very sad to see Father Hugh Thwaites SJ go, but there's great hope too.  He was a great son of St. Ignatius and an inspiring speaker and an authority on the demonic.

"When people want to know why God created the world, I can't think of a more plausible reason than Our Lady."

Thanks to Father Tim Finegan and Linen on the Hedgrow...also listen here to several of his talks.
