Francis: Omnia Instaurare In Homine

Awfully sorry, Your Holiness, but the Spirit has gone past your ideas now...

Awfully sorry, Your Holiness, but the Spirit has gone past your ideas now…

 

 

 

“The idea, therefore, is to save mankind, in the sense of restoring him to the centre: to the centre of society, of thought, of reflection. Restoring mankind to the centre. You do good work. You study, reflect, hold conferences for this reason – so that mankind is not discarded.”

Pope Francis is all in this phrase.

As around 70 people get a nice holiday in Rome to try to give sense to the economics nonsense of the man in Evangelii Gaudium, and thus try to save his face as much as they can by saying no, the Pope is for Capitalism and no, the Pope isn’t a nincompoop who does not know what he is talking about,  Francis keeps spreading his own secular thinking.

A man obsessed with removing Christ from the centre (of society, of thought, of reflection) and with putting mankind at his place.

We have gone from Omnia instaurare in Christo to “Omnia instaurare in homine”. The Pollyannas applaud and praise the great sensitivity of the man to the plight of the poor.

A Che Guevara in white. And a stupid one at that.

Please pray that this disgrace be taken away from us as soon as possible.

  1. Francis and Saint Pius X are as different as night and day.

  2. Mundabor, you stopped short.

    The Pope thanked those present for their work and their initiatives “to restore balance to this imbalanced situation and to recover mankind, restoring him to the centre of reflection and the centre of life. He is the king of the universe!” he exclaimed.

    Such words were “exclaimed” by the sovereign pontiff, the successor of St Peter.

  3. I thought G-D is at the center.
    My bad.
    Guess I’ll never get to be Pope in this new church.

  4. At least he is honest and says that his utterances are not theology.
    Christ is the King of the universe, this is theology. Francis´ actions prove that he doesn´t believe this.

    The Pope thanked those present for their work and their initiatives “to restore balance to this imbalanced situation and to recover mankind, restoring him to the centre of reflection and the centre of life. He is the king of the universe!” he exclaimed. “And this is not theology, it is philosophy and human reality.”

  5. I find that he has a peculiar way of phrasing things. Initially I thought it was something in the translations, but now I do not think so. I think it stems from the way he thinks.

    • Yes.
      What he is comes out in the way he speaks. Particularly in hsi way, as he is so unguarded an dpersuaded of the great wisdom of every piece of rubbish he regales us with.

      by th eby, I could follow the Italian version from the start. Bar a case of two, it was never a mistranslation.

    I don’t know why he thinks this strictly humanist approach will ever work or improve anything. It has never worked. Take God out of the equation and you end up with Communism or totalitarianism of one sort or other. Even the Romans had their pagan gods and took them seriously for a time. Now it’s all about Man. Fallen, weak, inclined to sin, a horrendous track record of inhumanity to man throughout history, and helpless without God. And we want to put that at “the center.” Que lio indeed.

  7. So, he hopes to ‘redesign’ capitalism. Good luck with that one! Has he never read Pope Leo’s encylical Rerum Novarum, on capital and labour? He could have saved himself a great deal of effort.

  8. The BoR always speaks from a purely personal point of view. He is incapable of objective thought, ie he is the centre of his own little universe.

  9. Should the Pope be “for capitalism”?

    • Of course he should.
      What’s wrong with capitalism?
      Open your big blue eyes, and realise no economic system has ever worked better than Capitalism.
      Which doesn’t mean unbridled exploitation; but you know that…

  10. Wasn’t it Pope Pius XI that stated that:

    “Many … speak, write, and, what is more, act as if it were not necessary any longer to follow, or that they did not remain still in full force, the teachings and solemn pronouncements which may be found in so many documents of the Holy See, and particularly in those written by Leo XIII, Pius X, and Benedict XV [… on such questions as … the right of owning private property, on the relations between capital and labor, on the rights of the laboring man, … on the relations between the different social classes,… on the social rights of Jesus Christ, Who is the Creator, Redeemer, and Lord not only of individuals but of nations.]

    There is a species of moral, legal, and social modernism which We condemn, no less decidedly than We condemn theological modernism.” (Ubi Arcano dei concilio).

    Pope Pius XI also wrote Quadragesimo Anno.

    The thing is it seems there is no historical example of capitalism without unbridled exploitation. So, even if capitalism works better than socialism or other economic systems, the Popes should try to *judge* capitalism in accordance with the doctrine of the church and not serve as its cheerleaders. And they did. How many Popes in a row criticised capitalism since the end of the XIX century ? Its almost like its part of the ordinary universal magisterium …

    • Joao, this is utter nonsense.
      Capitalism is the world in which you, I, and everyone else lives. It might be a bit (and more than a bit) too “socialised”, but there is no doubt that its principles are alive and kicking, and it is the basis of the economic organisations of those societies.

      I agree: the Papal States were way more Capitalist than any modern society, and would make the utter joy of every Tea Party follower you may care to mention; but still, Capitalist they certainly were, with every modern standard you may care to apply.

      Your idea that there is no historical example of capitalism witghout “unbridled exploitation” is purest Chavez crap, with which you might make a good impression with an audience of rabid trade unionist and bergoglinis, but not here.

      Anyway: give me back the state, justice and taxation system of Leo XIII. I am all for it.
