Hail Mary, Full Of Gratuitousness and Beauty
As happened some days ago with the terrifying episode of the witchcraft ferula, Pope Francis has given us another example of his utter lack of most elementary intelligence, coupled with an arrogance that defies imagination.
This excerpt from his latest book shows first of all that Francis has lived an entire life without knowing what Grace is. Seriously, this is stuff every Catholic boys knows perhaps not in elementary school, but certainly at Confirmation.
But then again this appalling ignorance shows the arrogance of the man. A man who does not care to show the world his ignorance of Catholicism, because to him it is far more important that you know how much he despises it. The man who has already objected to the Our Father now tries to remake the meaning of, very likely, the first praying words learned by every Catholic little boy and girl all over Catholicism.
Let me repeat this point so that it sinks in: it is very clear to Francis that he does not understand the basics of Catholicism. What he wants you to know is that he cannot even be bothered to learn anything about it, because he despises Catholicism so much that he wants you to know it is not worth the effort, and it is utterly inferior to his own blather about everything.
This is a consistent feature of this papacy: Francis explains to you what Catholicism really means, and it is never what Catholicism has always meant.
I am more and more persuaded that this man never had any faith. Born of a poor family and with little prospects in life, in a Country with paucity of opportunity and in which family, money and connections are pretty much everything, the man decided to scrounge an existence by attaching himself to a powerful and rich order; a course, this, that he deemed vastly preferable to a humble existence perhaps, at some point, graced (see what I am doing here?) with a wife and children and to be lived in humility and faith in the Lord. A course, however, even more understandable is he is, as he might well be, homosexual. In all cases, there can be no doubt that to a power crazed man like this one the possibility to enter an order that did not require power, money or political or other connections, but made one respected and one day, possibly influential, was vastly preferable to the existence of a lowly employee, married or not.
This explains both Bergoglio the Jesuit and Bergoglio the Arrogant. He lived out of the Church whilst he despised Her with a passion all his life. When he was put at the top, his lifelong resentment and his stellar arrogance created exactly what we are seeing now: the man who wants to explain to us, out of his own appalling ignorance, what “full of Grace” means.
It is so embarrassing it makes one cringe. But then again by now we are accustomed.
Hail Francis, full of shit.
I hope you die soon.
