The "Top Down" Catholic Revolution by Bishops Against Established Church Doctrine.

The "Bottom Up" Catholic Revolution by Laymen Supporting Established Church Doctrine.

Vic Biorseth, OWM; Friday, November 07, 2014
http://www.CatholicAmericanThinker.com/

We have talked about the goings on at the recent Synod on the Family and the way many (most?) Bishops successfully fought to keep their shameful remarks hidden from the public.  Most of the work of this Synod was done in the dark, so that the shamefulness of the Bishop's radically changing positions on ancient, originally established Church doctrine could not be seen in the full light of day. 

In the Anathematizing Anathema argument, we showed how your failure to reject and shun pure evil eventually winds up with pure evil rejecting and shunning you.  It's already happening on a grand scale here in America, with the courts and the justice system deeply involved.  And our Catholic Bishops helped the process along.  Perhaps they even lead the charge.  It might be argued that if they had steadfastly held their ground on moral issues, immorality might never have made so much "progress" in American culture. 

Look around. 

And, we have talked about all the Lip-Service Catholics in the pews with us every Sunday.  The "Faithful Catholics" who attend Mass regularly, receive Eucharist regularly, but do not live the lives of faithful Catholics. 

In fact, many receive Eucharist sacrilegiously, because they may be

  1. fornicating
  2. cohabitiing
  3. active homosexuals
  4. divorced and remarried without annulment
  5. using artificial contraception
  6. using pornography and/or masturbating
  7. committing sins of non-sexual nature

The predominant sins, of course, are of a sexual nature; but they are no longer seen as sins, for they are often not taught as sins, by Bishops. 

It is a sad fact that a minority of Catholics attend Mass regularly.  It is a sadder fact that a majority of Catholics who attend Mass regularly do not properly know their faith, and come unworthily to Eucharist, regularly

And many (most?) of our Bishops are proactively making it even worse. 

Leading the charge against viewing sin as sinful are, of course,

  • Cardinal Dolan, who has a special devotion to all the sins associated with homosexuality, and who would like to make the Church more inclusive by welcoming active homosexuals to Eucharist.
  • Cardinal Wuerl, who sees anathematizing sin as exclusionary and judgmental, and would like to grant Eucharist to everyone, in the interest of inclusiveness and non-judgmentalism.  
  • Cardinal Kasper, who sees no real sin in adultery, and would invite and welcome all marriage breakers to Eucharist.

What makes matters worse is that Pope Francis appears to favor these clearly deviant Cardinals over traditional doctrinal Bishops like Cardinal Burke. 

"Not to worry", the new Bishops say; Church doctrine will never change!  But, the application might change, and the disciplines concerning them might change, to make the Church more welcoming to the other.  Why, heavens, we wouldn't want to be exclusionary of anyone. 

It is through their teaching of error, and their failure to point out and highlight sin, that so many Catholics have fallen into sin.  And now, rather than correct their own erroneous and sinful ways, they are moving to further allow the sin to live, metastasize and grow inside the Church.  They prefer to pretend that it's not their fault. 

Why, it's not as if a Bishop should have to repent, confess, convert, mend his behavior and sin no more.  Heavens no. 

Who do you think we're talking about here?

Vic,

I appreciate all your insight and thoughts on Holy Mother Church. Thanks brother.

I have been wrestling/struggling with the "assumed" approval from Pope Francis regarding these matters....It's tough to fathom and I find it difficult not to conclude our pope's consent. Why aren't these three bishops rebuked? Excommunicated? It seems Francis has no problem speaking against faithful bishops...?!? I'm confused with all the vague and wishy washy language coming out of St. Peter's nowadays. Nevertheless, I'll keep praying for our Holy Father, hold tight to Father's Word/Catechism and remain faithful.

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you and family! 

Chuy

Chuy:

Thank you so much; know that you are not alone in this struggling to understand the language and actions of his holiness.  Remember that infallible does not mean impeccable; even the pope is not above sin and imperfection.  We can hope and pray that, over time, these vagaries and imprecisions of language will improve, and the necessities of the office itself will mold him into the best Vicar that he can be. 

I too pray for the pope, with every rosary.  Thank you especially for the blessing; may it return to you and yours. 

Regards,

Vic
