Synod: A Call to Coversion ( integral ecology)

I'm afraid I'm still catching up from the weekend, and boy - has a lot of stuff happened since Friday!

One quick observation I needed to write down was prompted by the 'unanimous call of the synod groups for the conversion of Catholics to "integral ecology".'
Synod groups unanimously call for church defense of rights,
culture & territory of indigenous people; conversion of all Catholics to
"integral ecology" that respects the Earth & the dignity of the
people who live on it. — Cindy Wooden (@Cindy_Wooden) October 18, 2019 This extraordinary claim comes as one of the leading synod fathers from the Amazon says he has never baptised a single indigenous person and never will!

One has to wonder what exactly he is doing down there! It increasingly appears that the purpose of the synod is to convert Catholics to...whatever it is they do down there, rather than to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with them!

Interestingly, this repeats the assert…

Synod Paid For by Major Abortion Funder

It's literally one crushing scandal a day at the moment isn't it folks?

Today's dose of sulphur from the Amazon Synod is perhaps the worst news yet.
As one Catholic Bishop I denounce this disgusting cooperation with evil & urge every believing Catholic to join me, we are morally bound to speak for the voiceless unborn children......Pro-Abortion Ford Foundation Major Funder of Key Synod Organizations — Bishop J. Strickland (@Bishopoftyler) October 19, 2019 Edward Pentin explains that a missionary council for indigenous peoples run by the Brazilian bishops’ conference has received almost $2 million from the pro-abortion Ford Foundation since 2006, a Brazilian journalist has revealed.

Yes that's right, this lot:
"Ford Foundation continued its grants to abortion rights groups, with substantial grants given in the 2000-04 period to Catholics for Choice, the International Planned Parenthood Federation, and the International Women’s Health Co…

Pope Francis: Indulging in False Oppositions

Last week, Pope Francis made this much reported remark:
“Do I love God or dogmatic formulations?” We might be tempted to think that the false opposition and sentimentality implicit in the question is characteristic of modern Jesuits. And no doubt it is, of some of them.

However, as the Catholic Scholar ‎Peter Kwasniewski‎ shows in his latest article at LifeSite, Francis's statement sharply contrasts with the views of five major modern Jesuit theologians:

Fr. Pierre Rousselot, S.J. (1878–1915);
Fr. Emile Mersch, S.J. (1890–1940);
Fr. Henri de Lubac, S.J. (1896–1991);
Fr. Piet Fransen, S.J. (1913–1983);
Fr. Avery Dulles, S.J. (1918–2008). So does this mean that Francis is an outlier even among his own order?

This article contains quotations from all five in which they show why (in the words of one):  "Take away dogma and you take God away; to touch dogma is to touch God. To sin against dogma is to sin against God." Pope Francis continues to demonstrate his unsuitability f…

Unbelievable! Vatican CONFIRMS Idol Worship

After days of prevarication it has finally been made clear that the Pope allowed pagan worship in the Vatican and Catholics (even Franciscans) took part.

This is wrong. Do Bishops not care? If they take their vocations at all seriously, something needs to happen now. Remember, this is the Pope who moved the papal Corpus Christi procession out of Rome, but allows idol worship in the Vatican.
Syncretism is deeply and inextricably Masonic.

If anyone is wondering. — Ed. Condon (@canonlawyered) October 16, 2019CNA reports:

Fr. Giacomo Costa, a communications official for the Amazon synod, said Wednesday a wooden figure of a nude pregnant woman, which has been present at events related to the synod, is not the Virgin Mary, but is instead a female figure representing life.

“It is not the Virgin Mary, who said it is the Virgin Mary?” Costa said Oct. 16 at a press conference for the Amazon synod, a meeting taking place in the Vatican Oct. 6-27 on the ministry of the Church in the region.


A Huge Sign of Hope

Despite all the madness in Rome at the moment, there is cause for hope. The evil men will not win and even as they are openly revelling in their victory, good Cardinals are gathering and supporting the flock. This is very heartening, please watch!

Amazon Bishop Kräutler: "I will not baptise"

"I have not yet baptized any Indian and I will not" - Bishop Erwin Kräutler.

German theologian, Johannes Stöhr critiques +Kräutler's book "Have courage! Now change the world and the Church", says +Kräutler plays the Eucharist against sacramentality#SinodoAmazonico#AmazonSynod — Catholic Sat (@CatholicSat) October 14, 2019 So the bishop at the Amazon Synod who is there to teach us all about evangelising the people rejects the great commission and the fundamental purpose of his whole mission. What is he doing down there? Being "nice" and "accompanying" everyone?

Seriously, is this some sort of sick joke?

No wonder 80% of the Amazon is Pentecostal. With bishops like this we kill the faith.

Vatican Storm Intensifies - Financial Probe Links Straight to Pope's Top Man

The Vatican is investigating how $200m in Swiss bank accounts controlled by its central administrator ended up financing a luxury property development in London that generated large profits for a company that managed the investment. According to an article in the highly reputable Financial Times, in addition to forking out £168 million for the equity, the Vatican has also taken over £100 million of debt.

The project to construct 49 luxury apartments at 60 Sloane Avenue has become the focus of an investigation by Vatican police into the financial activities of the Holy See’s Secretariat of State, the custodian of millions of dollars in charity given by Catholics around the world, according to multiple people familiar with the probe.

The Vatican became involved in the Chelsea project in 2014 when $200m held in Swiss bank accounts controlled by the Secretariat of State was transferred to a Luxembourg investment fund called Athena Capital.
Athena is owned by the Italian London-based fina…

The Appropriation of Cardinal Newman

I've just about had enough of this.
The priest that our Pope meets with, seeks counsel from, and legitimizes ladies and gentlemen.

Everything is okay, everything is okay, everything is okay... — Tyler Rowley (@tylerrowley) October 12, 2019 Why does everything with James Martin have to be about homosexuality? As Tyler states in his tweet — this is the man the pope chooses to meet with, to promote, to legitimise, and he is speculating about the sexual preferences of a celibate man so holy he is about to be canonised. It's not just massively inappropriate, it's frankly FILTH!

But Gay Jim isn't the only one seeking to appropriate Newman's canonisation for their own agenda.

This is complete twaddle:
“The spirit of Newman is hovering over the synod gathering as it seeks out new pathways for the 21st century Church.” Fascinating @ctrlamb iv with Newman expert Mgr Rod Strange on the surprising connections between the #sinodamazonico and the Eng…

The Papal Posse on Sinodica Amazonia

The Papal Posse from 10-10-2019 looks at the Scalfari controversy. Raymond asks why the Pope & the Vatican don't simply shut Scalfari down?

They discuss the Vatican Garden debacle, especially the Pachamama idol - Robert Royal says no one seems to know what it was, what was going on or what it meant. No one seems to want to take responsibility for it either! The fact that no one can explain this is as problematic as what actually went on! Fr Murray is very clear that the whole thing is horrendous.

They discuss the Pope's criticism of biretta wearing priests

Also the the fact the cassocks have been dispensed with at the synod.

Cardinal Hummes started the synod by stating baldly that the whole thing was about a push for married priests. Robert Royal points out the image of the Amazon being portrayed has been demonstrated already to not be accurate. Hummes is pointing to a solution to a problem which doesn't seem to even exist.

Fr Gerry says there's an attempt to re-i…

Sinodo Amazonica - A Hot Mess Already!

There's been loads to write about as the debacle of #SinodoAmazonico is unleashed on us this week, but if I am honest, I'm not sure I have the stomach for it - it really is just too distressing. The only thing is, I do feel duty bound to record the circus for posterity I suppose, but before I do, please say a prayer for our wonderful priests, many of whom - I know - are suffering terribly through all this, as are all the faithful. I hope you will join me in praying fervently, fasting and offering sacrifices for all this.

There was an interesting moment before the weekend when Cardinal Ouellet came out questioning the direction of the Amazon synod:

The Pope's Faith in Question

Truly scandalous headlines for Christians emerged yesterday as Eugenio Scalfari of the Italian journal La Repubblica, purportedly a friend of Pope Francis and someone he has granted interviews to repeatedly, claimed Pope Francis told the self-professed Italian Atheist that he believes that
“Jesus of Nazareth, once he became a man, though a man of exceptional virtues, was not a God at all.” (“Sono la prova provata che Gesù di Nazareth una volta diventato uomo, sia pure un uomo di eccezionali virtù, non era affatto un Dio.”)
Back in April 2018, the Vaticanista Antonio Socci reported that at least one non-Italian Cardinal (apparently representing a group), had approached Pope Francis to protest in the strongest possible terms over his interview with the Italian Atheist/ Marxist nonagenarian Eugenio Scalfari. This interview was published on the morning of 29th March. In it Scalfari directly quoted Pope Francis as saying — for example — that hell does not exist, and that the souls of sinne…
