Francis Praises Everything – Except the Lord

Francis plans pompous celebrations for the 5th anniversary of his environmentalist pamphlet Laudato Si, although the Prefect for the Economy told him to be “sober” and to “cut the costs of …

Anything but the Faith; anything in place of the Faith.

The ultimate self-celebration: is there a clearer mark of anti-christ spirit, I mean, the guy is in the Apostolic See... I would NOT say he IS the antichrist... He is a pawn, a very important one, but a pawn, he follows orders, he's not the one calling the shots

Not only the traditional Catholic liturgy but also traditional Catholic culture and there is no place for this modernist nonsense within either.

I can almost visibly imagine the profound disapproval from a certain traditionalist pastor if he were ever "encouraged" to present such material. This would probably end up in the parish newsletter just to serve as printed proof of his obedience. Beyond that? A Sunday sermon on the subject would probably strike him as an impious waste of time. Sermons during Mass address subjects relating to The Almighty, not "sustainable development programs".

Because he is extremely devout and loyal to both God and The Church, he would immediately notice the crucial flaw in this latest fancy from the Vatican. He's quite cunning, far more so than yours truly in fact -much to my endless delight. :D

As a priest, he might be obligated through his vows of obedience to present such left-wing eco-hippie nonsense -all of which is entirely contrary to the Church's traditional stance. However, it is up to the parishioners to participate and implement a parish "sustainable developmen" initiative.

Traditional parishes have an equally traditional respect for their pastor's spiritual guidance on earthly affairs. If Father thinks something is a dumb idea, then it is -and with good reason. In nearly every case, that reason doesn't need to be spelled out, either. One sly reference to Pachamama during an after-Mass coffee social would make his opinion blindingly clear even to the few naive dullards and the whole rotten mess dies right there.

If there's no interest from the parish for sustainable development, well, he -did- present the Vatican's material. ;-)

I think parishes may soon be encouraged to plan meetings and seminars to support the sustainable development program. This will take away the praise and worship due to Our Lord. As a child I remember the crowning of the statue of Our Lady Queen Of The May. Corpus Christi Processions in June and Kneeling to receive Holy Communion on the tongue. I always remember the joy of singing "Soul of my …More

As a child I remember the crowning of the statue of Our Lady Queen Of The May. Corpus Christi Processions in June and Kneeling to receive Holy Communion on the tongue. I always remember the joy of singing "Soul of my Saviour" and "Faith of our fathers" I say "Make the church holy again."
