Bishop Barron Praises Homosex Activist James Martin As A "Winsome Guide"

The Homosex activist James Martin, a Jesuit, has written a book on prayer entitled “Learning to Pray: A Guide for Everyone.”

It will be released in February, but Martin already published its cover on Twitter (October 30). The “conservative” Los Angeles Auxiliary Bishop Robert Barron, a self-declared Thomist, is quoted on the cover with an endorsement. Barron speaks of the "genius" of the book,

“The genius of this book – evident in both its content and its style – is that it speaks, simultaneously, to beginners in prayer and to those experienced in the way of the Spirit."

Barron believes that "Martin is a winsome guide for all those who want to deepen their friendship with the Lord."

What is it with you Chris? You're repeating a falsehood I've already corrected for you over here

Canon Law does NOT require the Pope to renounce "the Petrine Charge, Office or Mandate". That phrase does not appear in 332.2 and neither does the word "munus", neither in the English translation nor in the Latin original which reads:

Si contingat ut Romanus Pontifex muneri suo renuntiet, ad …More
What is it with you Chris? You're repeating a falsehood I've already corrected for you over here

Canon Law does NOT require the Pope to renounce "the Petrine Charge, Office or Mandate". That phrase does not appear in 332.2 and neither does the word "munus", neither in the English translation nor in the Latin original which reads:

Si contingat ut Romanus Pontifex muneri suo renuntiet, ad validitatem requiritur ut renuntiatio libere fiat et rite manifestetur, non vero ut a quopiam acceptetur.

You're doing what so many of Benedict's fanboys have done before you: re-writing Canon Law to invalidate an otherwise legitimate resignation. I've said it before and I'll say it again, the only resignaton your kind will ever accept is the one Benedict didn't make.

He didn't resign the office? That's not what Benedict said in his last General Audience, Wednesday, 27 February 2013

He stated: "I no longer bear the power of office for the governance of the Church,.."

Benedict has also said , "Francis has a strong presence. Much stronger that I could ever have with my physical and mental weaknesses," he observed. "To remain in my office would not have been honest."

Benedict has explicitly used the term "office" in reference to the papacy and his renunciation of it, both during his resignation and afterwards. This shows conistency in Benedict's statements and in Benedict's understanding ofthe Papacy as an "office".

Benedict XVI resigned and all the wishful thinking and re-writing of Canon Law won't change that.

Francis is the Pope @Baptist John . There's nothing false about his rightful claim to the office.

Again, that's a lie and you're a liar. The Pope didn't "shut down Mass worldwide". It was done by the Bishops. Quote and link the official Papal directive wherein Francis "shut down Mass worldwide". You can't and you won't because he never did. You're just makin' it all up like you do with your farcical references to the "Petrine Charge" and the "munus".neither of which even appear in Canon Law …More

Barron should be considered to have come out.

I do believe he is TG having been AFAB. Muscles? Testosterone? All media personalities suspect including Fr Murray and Raymond Arroyo. For the latter, look at his “wife” and who he hangs out with.

“If you are a theologian, you will pray truly. And if you pray truly, you are a theologian.” - St. Evagrius So no, a heretic like Fr. Martin is *not* qualified to teach anyone how to pray.

Martin is an infallible guide to hell.

Can everybody stop pretending Bishop Barron is someone who should be listened to?

This vice (sodomy), which surpasses the savagery of all other vices, is to be compared to no other.

If we were unsure where Bp stood, now there cannot be a doubt.

“His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor and gather his wheat into the granary, but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire.”
- Matt 3:12 (RSVCE)
