Facta, Non Verba

The question whether he "fosters adoration" was taken very seriously by those present.

The question whether he “fosters adoration” was taken very seriously by those present.

From Rorate Caeli: emphases theirs.

Pope Francis then asked: “Are our temples places of adoration? Do they foster adoration? Do our liturgical celebrations foster adoration?”. Judas Maccabeus and the people “were zealous for God’s temple because it was the house of God, God’s dwelling place, and they went as a community to find God there, they went to adore”.

“But, I think – I say this humbly – that maybe we Christians have lost a little the sense of adoration, and we think: we go to the Temple, we come together as brothers – that’s good, it’s great! – but this is where God is. And we worship God.”


Yes. Have we?

What about the Pinocchio Mass, for example? Does it foster adoration?

Or perhaps is the Tango Mass more in tune with God’s dwelling place?

What about, for example, openly admitting past mistakes (so that they can never be used as excuses for other liturgical wreckovations) and crushing down very hard on the abominations happening all over the West? 

I seem to detect a certain dissonance between words and facts, and you know which ones speak louder.

Keep praying for Francis; that he may, one day, always practice what he, at times, preaches.

  1. No dissonance. He is perfectly coherent. I’m willing to bet that, for him, Pinocchio and tango ‘masses’ are a form of adoration, and the TLM is what he is talking about when he says that we lost the sense of adoration. He is perfectly coherent, he is just omitting the main premises.

  2. What we need is someone to go undercover in the Vatican, pretending to be a gay Jewish transvestite Muslim Wiccan atheist dialogue-specialist, to find out what Francis is really up to behind the scenes.

    Now that’s a joke (maybe), but I’m hoping that one day there will be leaks from inside. Since all worldliness has entered the Church and its beachball is upon the altar, leaks should come along with that.

    • Maybe.
      Maybe not.
      Whilst I do not think we have Pope Fag, I shudder at thinking what he might have said in private to Monsignor Ricca, or to his buddy bishop who got the mistress, or to the mistress who then became a close friend of his.
