Kasperism Soundly Defeated. V II Still In Place

Still very far away

Alarmed from a post on Father Z's blog, I have re-read the 4 English language reports, and added to them the 3 Italian language report and (being of excellent humour) the German one.

I repeat once again: the Heresy of Kasper has been soundly defeated. It has been defeated beyond the expectation of any concerned Catholic before the Synod. You can't tell me you did not sleep at night fearing what would happen, and are not very happy with the results up to now. (Of course, it ain't over yet; but this is a different pair of black shoes).

Still, I sense in some quarters a disappointment that suddenly the Church of V II has not died; as if the wonderful outcome of yesterday would authorise them to believe in the Rise of The Don Camillos, and the Death of The Kasperites. Unfortunately (cough), not one single Kasperite Synod Father has died. They are all still there. This is why the war still rages on.

Please read the reports attentively, and repeatedly. Only the German report dares to clearly, if subtly, support Kasperism. All the other reports are very sound in their rejection of Kasperism, but they are written by V II prelates. This explain the waffle, and the many references to pastoral care that sound weak and effeminate, and the way to look at the situation of adulterers and homos and try to bring them back to the fold.

It is true that Italicus B has a solid reaffirming of doctrine concerning reception of communion, followed by a reference to the internal forum that, whilst in the context of the just affirmed fidelity to doctrine, sounds stupid to say the least. It is obvious thar there is sensitive waffle aplenty, as in the suggestion of Anglicus D that “excluded” from communion be discarded in favour of “abstain” from communion. All of this waffle is in line with the reports of the first week. It is also to be expected by V II priests. It is, of course, a shame. But it is no endorsement of Kasperism in any way, shape or form. There is no revolution. There is no call for the “Spirit” to inspire Francis to adopt novelties. There is nothing of what kept you awake at night.

Heavens: only days ago many feared the Bishops would openly embrace heresy, and now even its sound rejection should not be enough? If you expected a charging Don Camillo, and everything else to you is a disappointment, I am afraid you had not the faintest idea of the precipice that stood in front of us.

I have had a blog post pinned at the top of this blog since the day the Instrumentum Laboris was published. Not out fear of V II ambiguous waffle (about which I never had any doubt), but out of fear of formal heresy proclaimed by a Pope and supported by his Bishops in one way or other. Praised be God, the second part has not happened and it is improbable that it will happen now. As to the first part, we shall see, but I am serenely confident.

It's amazing how easily dangers are forgotten once they are gone. This is like one who has run the risk of food poisoning and complains that the food does not taste as he wished. Yes, man. Yes, ma'am. It's V II food, it has always been crap. But it's not the poison you were fearing.

Pray many prayers of Thanksgiving instead, that we did not wake up one morning discovering that the Church Hierarchy has officially embraced heresy.

Pray, also, that the last days of the Synod may lead to the rejection of any new trick that the Evil Clown may be trying. But I see his space of manoeuvre as rather limited now. It will be, I hope, more like trying to push the waffle in an inclusive direction, than letting nuclear bombs explode.

We must stay vigilant, pray, and do penance. But we have no right to expect that the rejection of Kasperism will give us Vatican I overnight. As long as Francis is Pope, the emergency will be there and the war will be raging.

The battle of Kursk was won; but you still have 3.5 million Kasperite soldiers in front of you and Berlin is very, very far away.

  1. Thank you, Field Marshall.

    Praise be Jesus Christ, True God and True Man.

    • Thanks, Akita.
      I am merely an angry soldier in the trenches, like everyone of us.
      But I do not complain. How many generals will go to hell!

  2. I have read all thirteen reports. Eight of them contain language that is clearly supportive of Kasperism. Three of them contain language that is clearly not supportive of it. Two are either neutral or silent. The three Catholic reports are obviously full of VII nonsense, but that is to be expected. The eight heretical reports are also full of VII nonsense, but go clearly beyond that to endorse some combination of Kasperism, decentralization and leaving the matter to the Pope (who would then implement Kasperism, of course).

    Unless something drastic happens, the Synod will vote tomorrow to implement some form of Kasperism, that is, it will approve a document that recommends opening communion to unrepentant adulterers and maybe active homosexuals, or, failing that, leaves the matter to the individual bishop’s conferences or the Pope to decide (and we know that he is a Kasperist.) It will, of course, contain some ambiguities, so conservatives can hide behind their fingers and continue to pretend they “won”, but this will not change the fundamental reality that unrepentant adulterers and probably homosexuals will shortly be able to receive communion with the reasonable expectation that the official Church approves, under whatever pretext they come up with.

    If my reading of the events is as utterly wrong as you claim, we will find out tomorrow, because the conservative landslide will produce a huge majority for a soundly Catholic approach in the vein of JPII and BXVI.

    • Your reading is completely wrong from the information we have today. The press is full of article that clearly state that Kasperism is defeated. A well-written article is here.
      Still, I do not doubt that even in the case of wonderful outcome, you will find ways to say that the relatio is “clearly supportive of Kasperism”.
      I think you need some office experience, and some more experience of life, to discern what is really happening in this kind of confrontations. It’s not a quarrel like it happens at school, at among friends. It’s a context in which everything is softened and made palatable for the loser, because – right or wrong – that’s the way the office workers think it should work.

    • “I think you need some office experience, and some more experience of life, to discern what is really happening in this kind of confrontations.”

      Well, if we’re getting patronizing and insulting now, we might as well end our discussion. This will be my last reply, then.

      For what it’s worth, my reading of the texts is shared by people as inexperienced as Father Z, who counted the reports exactly the same way I did. The problem is not “experience” but reading comprehension and delusionary optimism.

    • No, Catocon, my reply is neither. But I have some more experience than you and I can see in you the “Sturm und Drang” attitude of people who do not understand the working of the office corridors.

      father Z has a negative view of the documents, but it clear by reading him that he does not see Armageddon coming, at all. He points out to disappointing aspects, but i think his expectations were too high in the first place.

      I would have signed for ambiguous V II fluff on the day the Synods were announced. What I was afraid of was the nuclear explosion, not that Kasperites stay alive after this Synod. Of course they will. This might go on for centuries.


  3. Good job, Mandator. I know we have disagreed about this matter and MJY truly feared that Franciscus would dare go it alone but it seems you are right.

    MJY has never been happier to be wrong

    • oh, I have also feared – and still fear – that he would go nuclear. But I always thought it not very probable; both because of the speed with which he caved in last year and because he is what the Queen would call an effing Jesuit.

  4. You may not be wearing a red robe, cape and beanie, but you are leading so many of us Blogosphere foot soldiers. I’d say you, Steve Skojec, Michael Matt, Hillary White, Christopher Ferrera, Anne Barnhardt, John Vennari, the man behind Vox Cantoris, and the man behind Deux Ex Machina all qualify as Field Marshalls in the Book of Life tucked securely under St. Peter’s arm.

  5. Oh yes, Louie Verrechio’s name is also in that book!

  6. Even if “Kasperism” is defeated, I think the damage has been done. Francis will continue weakening the foundations of the Catholic Faith step by step. The demolition of the faith will resume on December 8 as the reform of the annulment processes will begin. Among other new novelties a 11th new commandment will be created: “Thou shall recycle”. And 2 new works of charity will be included: feed illegal immigrants and hug your fellow Muslims refugees where you are. Which means the catechism will be revised. The Pandora box has been open.
