“I do. Or, do I?” How To Undermine A Sacrament.

Are you a Pope? Do you want to damage for a long time the Sacrament of Matrimony? I suggest that you “speed up”, “simplify” or, as they say today, “streamline” the annulment process. You will achieve the following results:

1) Catholics the world over will begin to doubt the permanence and sacredness of the marriage bond. They will still know what a Catholic marriage is supposed to be. But they will have in front of them how it is lived in their community: a de facto easily broken bond.

2) Millions of public adulterers will think they have an easy way not to seek an annulment, but to keep living in sin. Hey, if 45 days can be enough, why undergo the “formality” in the first place? Mrs Pious Adulterer will rather decide that the Church would certainly declare her marriage null and void, so why bother? Just dare to tell her she must bother in order not to live in mortal sin and she will try to eat you alive. Francis is so merciful, and you are such a Pharisee? Of course, she does not want to run the risk that the marriage is not annulled; but again, why should she? Is the Church not admitting that the entire thing is “full of legalisms”? She knows her marriage is null and void. Shut up.

3) Millions of good Catholics who have taken their bond seriously in the face of, say, the adulterous spouse who has ran away with the milkman will feel very stupid, at least according to FrancisThink. They have remained faithful to a bond once chosen their entire life, whatever the cost. Little they knew they were just “obsessing” about their marital bond, no matter the suffering. A good Christian is a fool in Francis' Circus. A fool is a victim of legalism.

4) There will soon be a feeling in the air that many, many marriages are null and void. The Evil Clown is reported to say up to 80%, which would make of the Church herself the biggest joke on earth. Even if the often reported 80% was misreported or misinterpreted, “an awful, awful lot” is certainly the message. Marriage as a sacrament is further undermined.

5) Most rose water Catholic will get this message: the church got it all wrong for three centuries, and caused untold “innocents” to suffer. O baddy, baddy Church: when will you stop oppressing your children? Thank God we now have SuperFrancis! Once again, Francis looks good as he makes the Church look bad.

6) Bad marriages will be encouraged. Catholics of the next generation will grow accustomed to think that if they made a mistake and married the wrong one if was not really their fault, it's the marriage that was faulty. Marriage will be taken even more lightly by rose water Catholics than it is today. Marriage in church is so romantic after all. In one generation, expect a growing expectation of 45 day annulments. Again, the expectation may well be merely factual. Why bother, then?

7) The pressure on the judges to annul the marriage will be huge. May God help them to decide wisely. I predict a new category of self-styled church victims: those who have had their annulment denied. Injustice! Oppression! Patriarchate! Why them? We need more mercy. Of course we do…

8) There will be more annulment as many couples taken together by the knowledge of their sacred bond will now be encouraged to seek annulment. More suffering children, who will grow up knowing that the Church says “I do” means “but do I really, really, really do?” Answer to be postponed a number of years.

9) The perceived easiness of annulment will further concubinage. Wife is gone away with the milkman. Let's take the new woman in for now. Annulment won't be a problem, surely? Next step: point 2.


I am sure many other sides to this mess can be highlighted. But the real issue is this: marriage can't be taken seriously by half. The only way to strengthen marriage is to make annulment difficult, not easy. The only way to foster responsibility is to demand that once taken, responsibilities be honoured. The only way to educate people to right thinking is by enforcing it, which has never been easy or convenient.

I predict that after a first wave of annulments the thing will slowly ebb down among the great mass of non-practising or vaguely practicing adulterers. Not many adulterers will want to run the risk to ask and be told “no”, and the easier if is to be told “yes” the less motivation there will be to risk the “no”. Francis himself undermines the institution, and creates the perception of an easily broken bond. Heck, apparently he himself believes the bond exists in merely a clear minority of cases!

No, Pious Adulteress will not run any risk: she will prefer to keep living in sin, helped every step of the way by Francis, and tell to herself that she is most certainly all right, it's just a formality after all.

Don't we live in the age of mercy?

Please, Lord, free us from this evil man. He insults devout Catholics, despise orthodoxy, and poisons the sacraments. He insults you in every way he can. He undermines your work and spits on Your Bride even when he is not directly trying to rape Her.

Please, Lord. In your good time, free us from this evil clown.

  1. How many times can one go through this annulment process? And it’s not always the wife who runs off, it seems to me it’s more like the husband. Today He could be the one running off with the milkman……MMM.

  2. Mundy, I had NO idea I have been such a damn fool.

    After 33 years of marriage – a battleground of suffering, hardship, sacrifice, tears and toil – I guess the joke’s on me. Had I known I could have been out whoring about and still be considered a Catholic in good standing I might’ve parked my shoes under many a damsel’s beddery.

    With Viagra and a new pair of shoes, is it too late for me to join a favela and engage in sexual shenanigans and become a Eucharistic Minister while my new whore wife does Sunday Readings at Mass?

    Thanks for your Agony Aunt response.

  3. “Please, Lord, free us from this evil man. He insults devout Catholics, despise orthodoxy, and poisons the sacraments. He insults you in every way he can. He undermines your work and spits on Your Bride even when he is not directly trying to rape Her.

    “Please, Lord. In your good time, free us from this evil clown.”

    Which one? Pope Francis? Mark Shea? Karl Keating? Jimmy Akin? Dwight Longenecker? Virtually any member of the USCCB? It could apply to all of them, perhaps more. Change the gender of the relevant nouns and pronouns and you could throw in Simcha Fisher and Elizabeth Scalia, as well.

  4. When my husband and I went through our meetings with the priest before we got married 17 years ago, we had to sign a ledger in the rectory stating that everything we had said was good and true, and that we weren’t holding any secrets from one another or the Church. There was no doubt that everything would be valid on our wedding day. Our children even tease us about how serious we looked in pictures before the altar. Inscribed inside of our wedding rings, “No Matter What”.

    I wish the same for them someday. Completely sober and serious, understanding that their job is to help each other to get to heaven.

  5. First, contraception destroyed the first marriage bonum – Procreation; then, No fault divorce destroyed the second marriage bonum – Permanency; and today, the Head of the Church on Earth destroys the third marriage bonum – Fidelity. There really is, now, no reason to even have a Sacrament called “Marriage”, for its Sacredness has been annulled by motu proprio, courtesy of the Pope. There is no reason left to try and sanctify a wayward spouse, to uphold the integrity of your spoken vow before Christ, Spouse and Priest or to show example to your children that your words have meaning, even if it means being in a less than happy marriage. The only thing that counts from this day forward in marriage is that damnable word: HAPPINESS!

    Only HAPPY marriages are valid. Only kids from HAPPY marriages succeed. Only Spouses in HAPPY marriages become successful entrepreneurs. Only Catholics in HAPPY marriages can hope to gain Heaven. Only Catholics in HAPPY marriage can be good Catholics.

    Will someone please tell me when it was I got sucked into a parallel universe? The God Is Love In All Forms Catholic Church scares the hell out of me.

    I want to go back to the old one….Please, Lord. Soon…Yes??

  6. Well, now the sacrament of marriage has been taken care of, without even need for a Synod. Shot in the back of the head. Bergoglio borrowed Obama’s pen and phone. Two peas in the cesspool of neo-marxism.

    Now it is the turn to focus our full attention on sodomy, pardon, on “gayness.” After all they bring all these unique gifts and qualities. Such as HIV/AIDS, syphilis, mental disease, promiscuity, narcissism, domestic violence, exhibitionism, genital warts, condom, lube, excrement, cleansing enemas, and Hollywood’s debauchery, to name a few. The supreme pontiff homogoglio is already getting advice from experts:

    Pope Bergoglio invited Gaillot (Bishop, pro same-sex marriage and euthanasia) to continue to bless homosexual couples because “the blessing of God is for everyone”

  7. Francis will expedite the Catholic divorce style in a very smart way, and this is what has been happening in the last decades when annulments have been granted in great numbers. Where is the mercy Francis likes to preach when there will be thousands of children who are involved in the annulments and who will quickly become illegitimate in my own understanding?

  8. Mundy.You are spot on-as always-in your analysis of this Bishop of Rome!His heretical utterings and apostate statements cry out to Heaven for forgiveness.He is dragging The Bride of Christ through the mud and ,by doing,dragging souls to perdition.Our Lady of Akita pray for us,Our Lady of Fatima pray for us.May The Queen of Heaven crush the head of satan soon.God Bless .

  9. “Francis looks good as he makes the Church look bad.” This is dead on & puts it in the right perspective, as we are led to believe the Church has been so evil in the past and only now we have a merciful Pope who will bring things to there so-called rightful order. Many are putting their faith in Pope Francis alone, when it is supposed to be in Jesus Christ & his Church.

  10. Please, Crusader 1835, the children of annulled marriages are not illegitimate, as you understand. It is very important to realize that the children do not suffer the effects of a spouse who ‘faked’ their way into a marriage, enough so that the Church allowed a sacramental marriage.

    Unfortunately, you’re right that this new ‘mercy’ is going to make those children believe they are illegitimate, but in the eyes of the Church they are not.

    May God have true mercy on us and end this disastrous pontificate!

  11. Pope Francis is making an excellent progress in term of fooling and leading many souls to hell. He prepares the way of no resistance to chastity, adulterous sex is acceptable and God encourages you to break marriage bond and have as much as sexual pleasures as possible. Sin or no sin is doesn’t matter anymore, He forgives you all. Eventually Pope’s evil intention is to merge the Catholic Church in to NWO church for destruction. Saint Mary, Mother of the Church, protects us from this false prophet.
