“Gaudete Et Exsultate”, Or: “I Hate You All”

 

Gatling Gun

The official English Text of the new Apostolic Excrementation is out, and it makes for more than a laugh. At this point, I think this old cretin is only good for laughter, as I can’t imagine there is anyone on this planet who is not in mortal sin who really believed he is worth anything as a religious, much less as Pope.

The main traits of the documents are as follows:

  1. Extremely long, as befits a man never tired of hearing himself talking.
  2. Extremely secular, as in “devoid of any serious notion of what Catholicism is”
  3. Full of insults to both God-fearing Catholics and, actually, contemplative religious orders (same as 5).
  4. Self-referential, with Francis quoting Francis like there is no tomorrow.
  5. Last but not least, insulting to Jesus and, therefore, blasphemous (I will not get to discuss this today, but take it from me).

This despicable work is the product of the wicked mind of the Evil Clown, aided and abetted by people who share his complete lack of belief in Catholicism. 


I will start here the analysis of some points one founds when he starts to swim in this lake of shit. No doubt, many will found others. Further blog posts may continue on this. But make no mistake: once again, this is the work of the Devil. 

I suggest that you completely avoid the topic with friends and family, as it is better that this disgraceful document is ignored. If you are asked to comment on it, shoot with the Gatling gun and leave your interlocutor in no doubt as to where Catholicism resides. 


 

1. I like to contemplate the holiness present in the patience of God’s people: in those parents who raise their children with immense love, in those men and women who work hard to support their families, in the sick, [….]. In their daily perseverance I see the holiness of the Church militant. Very often it is a holiness found in our next-door neighbours, those who, living in our midst, reflect God’s presence. We might call them “the middle class of holiness” (Par. 7)

Atheists do all these things, too. It is quite normal, actually it is the standard situation to work hard to support one’s family, love one’s children to bits, or to be sick at some point or other in our lives. Francis, who does not believe in God and has no idea of what the life of grace is, seeks holiness in purely human behaviour. Every atheist who loves his children is holy, every old man who is sick is holy. Nor can you say against this that Francis has restricted this holiness to “God’s people” as in: faithful Catholics. This can’t be, because five years of militant secularism showed us that to this guy “God’s people” are actually exactly those who are *not* faithful Catholics. The very reference to the “middle class” is telling.

2. […] in times when women tended to be most ignored or overlooked, the Holy Spirit raised up saints whose attractiveness produced new spiritual vigour and important reforms in the Church. We can mention Saint Hildegard of Bingen, Saint Bridget, Saint Catherine of Siena, Saint Teresa of Avila and Saint Thérèse of Lisieux. […] (Par. 12)

This is Feminist Francis at work. The times he mentions were times of great religious feeling and very robust Catholicism. There were also times in which were women were held in high esteem in their role as women. nor were they prevented to give an extremely important contribution to the religious spirit of their times, as Francis himself admits making a number of examples (to whom I add the most astonishing episode of a very young woman who rose to the very top: Joan of Arc). The problem with Francis is that he is so drunk of secularism that he does not see the virtue of those past times, and calls their ordered lives and well-aligned priorities “times when women tended to be most ignored or overlooked”. You read this man and believe that jesus must have ranted every day against the “Patriarchate”.

3.  To be holy does not require being a bishop, a priest or a religious. We are frequently tempted to think that holiness is only for those who can withdraw from ordinary affairs to spend much time in prayer. That is not the case. We are all called to be holy by living our lives with love and by bearing witness in everything we do, wherever we find ourselves. Are you called to the consecrated life? Be holy by living out your commitment with joy. Are you married? Be holy by loving and caring for your husband or wife, as Christ does for the Church. Do you work for a living? Be holy by labouring with integrity and skill in the service of your brothers and sisters. Are you a parent or grandparent? Be holy by patiently teaching the little ones how to follow Jesus. Are you in a position of authority? Be holy by working for the common good and renouncing personal gain. (Par. 14)

Another positively creepy long statement. It may well be that a person becomes holy in the midst of persecution and with no priest in sight; but normally speaking, in order to become holy I certainly need the sacramental life to provide me with the Church exists in the first place. The normal case should and cannot be the one where the faithful is accompanied by his priests and bishops, and with the prayers and assistance of religious, on the path of holiness. Therefore, the paragraph smells of Protestantism, another trait commonly seen in Francis and, therefore, clearly the intended message here. In addition, we notice that severla of the examples of this paragraph do not mention the Catholic life. The outlook on holiness is, once again, merely worldly: caring for spouses and children, working hard, being a good boss constitutes holiness. Yes, here and there there is a sprinkling of Catholicism (the grandparents, the religious), but these look like later additions to a secular building. This is another trait of Francis’ bloviations: a solidly worldly foundation with some quotation here and there to feed the pigeons.

 4. It is not healthy to love silence while fleeing interaction with others, to want peace and quiet while avoiding activity, to seek prayer while disdaining service. Everything can be accepted and integrated into our life in this world, and become a part of our path to holiness. We are called to be contemplatives even in the midst of action, and to grow in holiness by responsibly and generously carrying out our proper mission. (Par. 25)

27. Could the Holy Spirit urge us to carry out a mission and then ask us to abandon it, or not fully engage in it, so as to preserve our inner peace? Yet there are times when we are tempted to relegate pastoral engagement or commitment in the world to second place, as if these were “distractions” along the path to growth in holiness and interior peace. We can forget that “life does not have a mission, but is a mission”. (Par. 26)

This is a real bomb. It amounts to a severe downplay and even open rebuke of contemplative life, something not surprising in a man who clearly has no idea whatsoever of the spiritual life. Socialist Francis does not see any use i na life devoted entirely to prayer and contemplation, because it takes the person making such a choice away from the fight against “inequality”. This is another common trend of Francis’ writing and talks: if you are an activist, you are a good guy; if you aren’t an activist, you aren’t. I can, here, not avoid imagining that Francis has been invited, by people with more brains than himself, to excise this part, and has flatly refused like the stubborn ass he is. It takes a real Commie to either not understand the uproar these paragraphs would cause or to not care for it. 


This is a very long post already, and I am only at around one sixth of this disgraceful document. I will not eat this manure in its entirety. I might write more blog posts on the one or other anti-Catholic statement therein contained, but I trust that this presentation already gives a clear idea of what we are confronted with here.

Stay away from this rubbish.

It is, once again, the work of the devil.

  1. I am not amazed at how brazen Francis has become. After all, someone who can deny the existence of Hell, must believe that he can get away with anything.

    I did not read his latest set of heresies. I read only the synopses, as provided by you and other Catholic bloggers.

    What disturbed me most were the insults he hurled at contemplative monks and nuns. He called their contemplative life “unhealthy”. So the Carthusians and Benedictines are unhealthy? St. Teresa of Avila must have been so unhealthy, too. Our Lord himself went into the desert many times to pray in seclusion – unhealthy, according to this fountain of heresy who dares to call himself a successor of Saint Peter.

  2. It is curious that this crap (It has been impossible for me to read it in depth, if the English version is trash, the Spanish version is, with its corny argentinisms, insufferable) mentions Saint Bridget, because she was not at all complacent about the abolition of priestly celibacy, planned for the Synod of the Amazon. From GloriaTV:

    «When Saint Bridget of Sweden, +1373, was in Naples, Italy, as an advisor of Archbishop Bernardo of Naples, they once talked about priests living with concubines. Bernardo argued that, were he pope, he would abolish celibacy to avoid such scandals.

    »Saint Bridget replied to him that Our Lady told her (Revelationes, Book 7, Chapter 10) that a pope who would abolish priestly celibacy “would be totally deprived by God of his spiritual sight and hearing” and “his spiritual wisdom would grow completely cold.”

    »Our Lady added that “after his death, his soul would be cast out to be tortured eternally in hell where it would become the food of demons everlastingly and without end.”»

  3. This exhortation has been jokingly renamed «Jodete e Insultate» (“fuck you and insult yourself”), pronounced in the Argentine way, and even jokes are made, such as “Amoris took me longer than Jodete” in reference to the number of pages.

    Quickly, I see in 52ss that a direct reading would lead to sustaining the Lutheran justification. Point 26 is a clear and direct attack on Cardinal Sarah, the prefect of the Liturgy. And in 140ss it eliminates the sanctity of the eremitical way: it does not exist. The whole text lacks completely supernatural sense. Neither mention the existence nor need to pray for the souls of Purgatory, a work of fundamental mercy.

    Summary of this mental diarrhea: if you want holiness, you have to emulate him and leave the Neognostic-Pelagian critics hidden in Jonah’s whale (§134 New insult!, his inventiveness is inexhaustible) to drown in vinegar, as bitter as they are, until their souls are annihilated.

  4. One of my worst fears was made a reality in this Exhortation. I have long prayed that the Church formally declare the infamous “Seamless Garment” what it is: a heresy. Instead, in Gaudete Et Exsulate (“Rejoice and be glad!”) the “Seamless Garment” received papal validation, using Cardinal Bernardin’s own words, drawing a moral equivalency between a life and death issue (abortion) and quality of life issues.

    101. “‘Our defense of the innocent unborn’ needs to be ‘clear, firm and passionate, for at stake is the dignity of a human life, which is always sacred and demands love for each person, regardless of his or her stage of development. Equally sacred, however, are the lives of the poor, those already born, the destitute, the abandoned and the underprivileged, the vulnerable infirm and elderly exposed to covert euthanasia, the victims of human trafficking, new forms of slavery, and every form of rejection’”.

  5. Are you married? How is anyone supposed to know the answer to this? He’s totally confused the issue.

  6. Thank you for the summary. His insult against Cardinal Sarah was impossible to avoid. He makes direct reference to “silence”, and the way it was phrased, we know who he means.
    There is no way around the fact he is an evil old materialist probable communist. Yet he’s becoming like that old crotchety neighbor who lived down the street when you were a kid. He was only annoying when he came out and confiscated your Frisbee or yelled at you for riding your bike across his lawn. You laughed at him with friends, but basically you didn’t pay him much attention. I know there are rapt, mostly Latino pope-idolizers out there, but except for them, who is listening to this old heretic any longer. Nonetheless I’m not saying the old guy can’t do some damage, he can, he’s dangerous, but we can’t get rid of him, nobody is willing to, so frankly, we’re stuck like Chuck and have to accept it or go insane. So let him rave. He’s hateful, and like a dog returning to his vomit he’s going to flog the faithful now and then any way he can.

    • I should think he would prefer the silence of the Cardinals. So far, it seems to have worked out well for him.

  7. prescribe and enforce caning for every one caught playing tambourine or guitar in church after Midday next Monday, irrespective of sex, age and musical orientation (sorry, ma’m: you wanted to play tambourine at 92, you’ll have to be caned at 92. No, ma’m, no exception. Too late. – this had my husband and I in fits of laughter – laughter is best medicine – this is really crude and I never talk like this however; it did cause – you know – a little – forget it

  8. I’m tired of being “Billy Chickens” on the net. I’m going to change my name to “That saint next door”. Because I’m super saintly.

  9. PF and his minions have been tried so hard to cut down RCC. There is already a lot of succeeds in causing devastations of confusing, dividing, error spreading and moral falling. What a diabolical blasphemy and sacrilege in allowing protestants who are not in communion with the Catholic Church receiving Eucharist. The truth is those protestants never believe that Body, Blood and Divinity of Jesus Christ real presence in what they think plainly as bread and wine; they cunningly turn Eucharist idolatry and protestants Idolaters. The pope and his minions have been exposed that they are not furthering God’s kingdom but are aiding the kingdom of darkness, this pope and all Vatican leaderships will come crumbling down and the veil will be dropped down and the whole world will see how deep and dark the deception has been. Deo Gratias and God is great.
