I was very pleased to read that the Evil Clown will symbolically plant a tree to show how very ecological he is etc. Etc.
This kind of cheap, cheesy PR stunts will damage him among Catholics and, by being praised by the wrong crowd, will help even those who are still not red pilled yet (and boy, they are late!) to finally understand what is going on.
Religious should never try to emulate politicians. When they do, they unavoidably damage themselves in the long run for the fleeting satisfaction of the headlines in the short term. The eco warrior in cassock, or priestly suit, is the perfect image of the guy who just doesn’t get it. All those who are more interested in salvation than in the next tree (broadly speaking, they should coincide with the Elect) will immediately feel that all this is as off as last month’s carrots. The eco loons (many of them, assuredly, Reprobates) will immediately embrace the stuff or, in case, criticise it because not looney enough, thus further alerting the first group as to the kind of people the Evil Clown is stupidly trying to court.
Francis does not get this because, having no faith, he is unable to even imagine how the brains of the faithful work. To him, vacuous slogans and an empty search for popularity is all there is, whilst his obvious hatred for the Church makes his stupidity more fun, at least for as long as he lives.
I hope the guy keeps planting trees, starts going to the funeral of glaciers and publicly invites teenager to not go to school in order to aggrandize him. The wrong crowd will be delighted, but the people who count will be terrified.
Keep planting trees, Frankie boy.
Show everybody what a joke you are.
The Italian Trump, Matteo Salvini, criticised two recent anti-Christian moves in Italy: the proposal to remove the Crucifix from classrooms and the traitorous decision of the Archbishop Cardinal of Bologna to have, for the feast of the Patron, tortellini made with chicken instead of pork, you easily imagine why.
Salvini criticises and then reflects whether he is the best man for it, because he is a sinner.
My answer to this is: we all are, Signor Salvini.
God works in mysterious and often unexpected ways. Countless times, He has used improbable characters for His purposes.
The tribal chiefs whose conversion led to the christianisation of England were certainly no saints, either before or, it is to be suspected, after their conversion. The lesser chiefs and common people who then converted because of tribal customs were also quite improbable speakers for their new religion. But this is how it works.
The Cathars were forced to convert or die. Not many champions of orthodoxy about them, I am sure. But how many Cathars has France now?
Do not reject good deeds because they come from people who are below par. Encourage and support politicians who are committed to the right policies for the public, and let the Lord deal with their private failings.
The man who gave Italy the long-desired peace with the Church was – at that time – a public atheist and public concubine. He married canonically merely because the Church made of this a precondition of the agreement. He remained, all his life, a first-class philanderer. But he changed the Country and helped the Church to become a formidable force in Italy. He was good enough for Pius XI, who very rightly called him “l’ uomo della Provvidenza”. You work with what God gives you.
Please remember this every time you vote. Please do not help Christian values to be defeated just because those who would lead you to victory are below your standard. And please always support the Salvinis of the world, when you know they are batting for the right team.
God knows, these days we cannot afford to be choosy.
