Small Test.

Mundabor's Blog

“Go ye therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I commanded you: and lo, I AM with you always, even unto the end of the world.” Matthew 28: 19-20

Let us make a small test here, and let me ask which of these Francis, the Bishop of Rome, is following:

1) Is he “making disciples of all the nations”?

2) Does he consider vital – as mandated by Christ – that they are baptised? How does he see their probable destiny if they aren’t?

3) Does he teach his people to observe his commandments? Or does he rather think there’s no need for that, because hey, they know already? (and by the by, do they?). Does he promote evangelisation, or “dialogue”?

 If I were a religion…

    Dear Mundabor,
    It’s easy to see how TMAHICH earned his nick-name.
    One commenter on your “original” of this post, linked a report on Pope Francis’ generous response to the Polish Jews-when their Chief Rabbi Michael Schudrich asked his help in 2013 to fight a government ban on their ritual slaughtering of animals- (according to Jewish Tradition without stunning them first). Francis personally assigned Cardinal Koch to help them, calling it “important for the continuing religious freedom of Polish Jewry”. The Rabbi responded “this is something that is very welcome and encouraging and especially coming from the pope, it really gives us encouragement…” that we will find a wise and quick solution.”
    =====
    That August, the Pope interviewd with 3 Jesuit magazines, and demonstrated a completely differet set of standards when it comes to Catholic Tradition, saying:“If the Christian is a restorationist, a legalist, if he wants everything clear and safe, then he will find nothing. Tradition and memory of the past must help us to have the courage to open up new areas to God. Those who today always look for disciplinarian solutions, those who long for an exaggerated doctrinal ‘security,’ THOSE WHO STUBBORNLY TRY TO RECOVER A PAST THAT NO LONGER EXISTS HAVE A STATIC, INWARD-DIRECTED VIEW OF THINGS.”

    Dear M,
    This post really points to core values and priorities. Have you ever considered writing a piece, (or better yet a series) on what you would do if God made you Pope for an undetermined time, and asked you to restore His Church right now?

    We find it quite a challenge to mentally shift-gears this way. A flood of ideas for possible action come to mind -but how to best prioritize Restorations, Banns, re-institution of useful practices from the past–hey maybe even a Crusade and/or a Vatican dungeon, and definitely Bell, book and candle? We’d love to hear your ideas on this some time… 🙂 🙂

    • I find myself, every now and then, thinking what my ideal Pope (not myself, of course; but one who is really good) would do.

      It always ends up in an autodafe of bad Cardinals… 😉
      (joking, of course; in a way…).

      M
