Shadow-Boxing: Vatican Document Criticises [German] “Tax On Sacraments”

The Congregation for the Clergy released a July 20 instruction about the parish. It is approved by Francis and claims that the current parish model does “no longer adequately” correspond to the “…

Sounds like the pay to pray thing only is valid in Germany

Bergogliano's anti-Catholic document is self-referential and exclusively quotes Bergoglio and some post-Vatican II modernist inclusions. Here it is clearly seen that the Bergoglian sect is not the Catholic Church. Bergoglio has caused a complete rift between Vatican II and the pre-Vatican II Catholic Church. There is no continuity Bergoglio has formed a parallel church that goes in the opposite direction to the Catholic Church.
The anti-Catholic document cites Bergoglio's insult against Catholics faithful to the doctrine of the Catholic Church in his pamphlet Gaudete et exsultate: On Gnosticism and Pelagianism
😡 Bergoglio's insult against the Catholic faithful: “This worldliness can be fuelled in two deeply interrelated ways. One is the attraction of gnosticism, a purely subjective faith whose only interest is a certain experience or a set of ideas and bits of information which are meant to console and enlighten, but which ultimately keep one imprisoned in his or her own thoughts and feelings. The other is the self-absorbed promethean neopelagianism of those who ultimately trust only in their own powers and feel superior to others because they observe certain rules or remain intransigently faithful to a particular Catholic style from the past”. Evangelii Gaudium, n. 94: AAS 105 (2013), 1059-1060; cf. also Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Letter Placuit Deo (22 February 2018): AAS 110 (2018), 429.

The new instruction cautions priests not to “commercialize” the sacraments by charging fees & it stipulates that financial difficulties within a diocese are not a legitimate reason for closing down parishes

As a pastor for almost 3p years I 100% agree on the point about not charging for Sacraments. No pastor should have set fees for Sacraments
Fr Dan
That's 30 years

Thank you for that sign. As a sidewalk counselor of many years, and seeing only very few people stand up for life out near the abortion mills, I often think of this quote. “Evil flourishes when good men do nothing.” Also, these last few years I often ponder this quote by Pope St. Pius X, “All the strength of satan’s reign is due to the easy going weakness of Catholics.”
