It’s more than a little ironic that THE false prophet warns of other false prophets.
There’s been a ton of headlines this week on this “Yalta-like” betrayal, folks. Francis, always a pragmatist, no doubt rationalizes that the RCC can have a bigger impact in China if it recognizes the Beijing-controlled bishops. This is just one more reason for church conservatives to hope for a quick end to Francis’ reign.
- Cupich: Amoris Laetitia is Pope Francis’ ‘revolutionary’ vision for the church
- Cardinal Cupich Launches Amoris Laetitia Seminars for US Bishops
It appears that liberal cardinal, Blase Cupich, is going to be Francis’ point man in the U.S. in rolling out the lifting of the ban on communion for remarried divorcees and unmarried cohabitors.
Traditionalist Catholic virtual rag, The Vortex, bemoans that only a tiny percentage of RCC members actually take their religion seriously.
- Rochester pastor becomes first woman bishop in her breakaway Catholic church
- Syracuse Roman Catholic Diocese Offers Reparations For Past Clergy Abuse
Hey, here’s some local Catholic news! First story – Denise Donato presides over Mary Magdalene church just a mile away in East Rochester. More and more of these breakaway “inclusive” Catholic churches are popping up. Second story – Just seven years ago, the bishop of the next-door Syracuse RC diocese, Robert Cunningham, referred to an underage abuse victim as “culpable” in a courtroom deposition. Finally convinced that the “jig is up,” he’s ready to begin doling out parishioners’ cash. The Rochester diocese where I live still has not compensated victims. A spokesperson for the DoR said it’s “finalizing details” of its compensation program and will be announcing it soon. I was an altar boy for four years and, thankfully, none of the parish priests made advances towards me, but I could tell, even as a child, that they were strange men. My Catholic high school guidance counselor, an Irish Christian brother, did make subtle advances, but I just laughed in his face. The Irish Christian Brothers declared bankruptcy in 2011 after paying out $17 million to 400 victims.
Catholics are taught the consecrated communion bread wafer is literally Jesus Christ, so they bow down and kneel before it in worship. So sad.
This meeting of “evangelical leaders” with Ivanka (not Donald?) included Franklin Graham, Robert Jeffress, Paula White, and Greg Laurie, ALL TBN regulars. I don’t often comment on politics, but this stuff nauseates me.
RCC conservatives have noted with dismay that Francis’ Vatican is quite friendly towards pro-abortion folks. Here’s another example. Thanks to Maria at Pilgrim’s Progress revisited – Christiana on the narrow way for this story.
There’s no Cracker Barrel on our side of town, so we have to make do with other options for Sunday post-church brunch.
