I have received a couple of very disquieting – I would say: delirious – messages from some confused Jew; possibly drunk, or else a foreigner without a good command of English.
I think it is fitting here to publish Pope Pius XII's (yes: the hero who saved more than 800,000 Jews from persecution and very possible death) prayer for the conversion of the Jews in the English translation:
Let us pray also for the faithless Jews: that almighty God may remove the veil from their hearts; so that they too may acknowledge Jesus Christ our Lord. Let us pray. Let us kneel. [pause for silent prayer] Arise. Almighty and eternal God, who dost not exclude from thy mercy even Jewish faithlessness: hear our prayers, which we offer for the blindness of that people; that acknowledging the light of thy Truth, which is Christ, they may be delivered from their darkness. Through the same our Lord Jesus Christ, who liveth and reigneth with thee in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Whilst the translations I have found say “faithless”, my rusty Latin would indicate that the prefix “per” in oremus et pro perfidis Judaeis indicates “wrong”, the idea of “wrongness”. As in pervert (per and versus, in the wrong direction) or perjury (per and iurare, “to give a wrong oath”). Therefore, it seems to me that the translation should primarily convey the concept of “wrong faith”, rather than that of “no faith”; which last would almost seem to suggest that the Jews are atheists; albeit I do get that as there is only one faith all those who are outside of it are, strictly speaking, “faithless”.
I ask you to join me in this sincere prayer for the conversion of the Jews. Say also, in your charity, one or three Hail Marys for the offence to the Blessed Virgin of the possibly drunken guy.
Ecumenism, Mundabor's way.
It appears the “apostolic excrementation” of the Evil Clown might be published within the first quarter 2016. I have often stated th following two concepts: a) Francis will certainly not dare to introduce heretical novelties, unless he thinks he can get away with it, and b) the man is such an arrogant ass that he actually could think that he can get away with it.
Please understand this: any and every attempt at subverting doctrine would unavoidably state that the step of the Pope is encouraged, authorised or otherwise sanctioned by an already existing document, providing the Church with either a precedent or a pretended “consensus'. Francis would never be so stupid as to say “and now I give you FrancisNovelty”. Rather, he would claim that he is merely developing on something already existing.
Two documents come to mind for the purpose: Familiaris Consortio and the final Relatio of the Synod. It is, therefore, absolutely vital that the Catholic world reiterates that such a precedent is not contained in any of those or in any other document, and that any heresy that should come from the Evil Clown would have to be answered by Francis and by Francis alone. It is, of paramount importance that prelates from all Continents state that both the above mentioned documents cannot be manipulated to promote heresy, and the latter will not be accepted.
It is extremely dangerous to attribute to the final relatio, or to Familiaris Consortio, a meaning they do not have. May this be motivated by a sincere desire to help the Church, the fact remains that in this way it becomes easier for Francis and his minions to exploit the narrative you are yourselves helping him to fabricate or, rather, are actually fabricating for him.
Goethe said it with an expression well known in Germany: die Geister, die ich rief / werde ich nicht mehr los, or loosely translated “the spirits I have called, I can't get rid of them anymore” (poetic translation: “The spirits I have cited / my commands ignore”).
Pay attention to the spirits you cite.
