Another “Francis Effect”
I am sorry that most blog posts now deal with Pope Diana. I would like to write far more about other issues, but I end up writing mainly about Francis. This I do for the following reasons:
1. I see what is happening as absolutely historic, a period that will be remembered in infamy for thousand of years to come. Francis is a plague comparable to John XXII – if probably not quite there, yet -, and I cannot find another period as troubled as this unless I look at Arianism, or at the XVI Century. It seems to me that the antics of a Pope let all the rest pale in comparison.
2. I do not see on the blogosphere anywhere near the number of scandalised reactions that I would like to read. Rather, the default “he is the Pope, so he must be right” reaction is still by far prevalent. The more I read pro-Francis waffle around, the more I want to put in my two cents.
3. The frequency with which the man spreads his senseless Bergoglism is breathtaking; he is all over the place, literally and figuratively. Every time one of his “events” take place one must point out what he has said, what it means that he has not corrected himself, why the groupies don't understand, and what is happening as a result of Francis' senseless talking.
It's a lot of blogging. Still, I can't keep pace with Francis' antics. There was no time to write a blog post about the Almoner now officially sent around to say “look how good Francis is”, so I did it in short and en passant whilst writing about something else. Ricca is still there, but I do not get to find the time to expand on what this means for the morality of the entire establishment. Ms Chaouqui, the “adviser”, would have merited a blog post or two, though this might have involved posing some questions about Francis' possibly all-too-developed fantasy (and yes, she is a vulgar beauty: she must remind him of some young woman in the favela).
I have followed closely the entire Limburg mess, and there was no time to write about it in a comprehensive manner (a complex mess, that one). There are many passages in Francis' interview, letters or rambling that should be commented upon. The fallout effect is getting bigger every day, and it's also linked to Francis.
There is no time, and one must prioritise. It seems to me that the absolute priority is to try to work, as far as I can, against the madness of a Pope who can't conceive hell even for most atheists, and can't conceive God even “slapping” anyone; and will therefore contribute to countless souls getting exactly there: to hell, all the while singing sugary song and feeling oh so godly in their “inclusive” “conscience”.

How wonderful! What a great team she will make with Msgr Ricca. Who is Pope Francis to judge?
Speaking of the “Fallout Effect” : Read this article about the blessed Bishop Paprocki and then note one of the prevailing sentiments expressed in one of the many comments thanks to PF:
“We cannot insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods. This is not possible. I have not spoken much about these things, and I was reprimanded for that. But when we speak about these issues, we have to talk about them in a context. The teaching of the church, for that matter, is clear and I am a son of the church, but it is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time…The church’s pastoral ministry cannot be obsessed with the transmission of a disjointed multitude of doctrines to be imposed insistently. “ – Pope Francis, Sept 2013
Perhaps “Prayers of Supplication and Exorcism in Reparation for the Sin of Same-Sex Marriage” are the kind of things Pope Francis was concerned about when he made the statement bolded above.
Question: Is this Francesca’s husband with her and did actually she post this picture on the you-tube herself?
It is clear she posted the photos herself. I think the man is the husband, though called “partner”. Whether married in church, I also do not know.
But that’s a modern “papal advisor” for you.
Well Mr. M…this priest has been scandalized since Pope Diana( Pope Diana…I love it) walked out on to the balcony (sans mozzette) of St. Peter’s six months ago. It’s all to surreal but didn’t you know he’s being hi-jacked by the liberals…gospel according to Zuhlsdorf…it’s unbelievable that these people can be so obtuse. I don’t know how much more of this I can take…even the Italian president is impressed with him because he’s sooo un-dogmatic and with Francis…well…you can just believe whatever you want…whatever your conscience tells you…oh brother. Somebody please wake me up form this nightmare…please!
The Italian President (of the Republic, I think you mean) is a former Communist.
I wouldn’t ask his advice about Popes.
With respect to the Communist Napolitano scandal, one would think it inconceivable that a pope (I know, the bishop of Rome in this case) would allow himself to be put in a position where a “former” Communist could “thank” the said pope TO HIS FACE and in front of the world media, for that said pope’s “absence of dogmatism”. And that said pope, after receiving this “former Communist’s lectio”, just sat there like the proverbial bump on a log.
But hey, let us all rejoice that the Scalfari interview was finally taken down from the Vatican website of official papal speeches.
Also very true.
The wrong people all over the planet praise him, but somehow this should not be a problem.
The real problem here is for the Catholics who for whatever reason do not know their faith and need guidance. This person (sorry but I cannot bring myself to call him Pope) is not letting me down at all. He is just meeting my low expectations. If I wind up going to hell it will be because of me and me alone. These lost Catholics though….these are the people that this person is failing so blatantly; yes they will be mostly to blame for their own demise as we all will be, but this man will be somewhat responsible too. What a great and important responsibility these men of the cloth have….I wonder how many of them nowadays actually view their position in life as such.
Sorry for not being specific…yes…the president of the republic of Italy is what I meant…
Thanks, I have found the video and there is a blog post in the making.
In Italy, the Prime Minister is officially the “Presidente del Consiglio dei Ministri” and receives the title of “President” for the rest of his life. Hence the question.
