Desolation, our destruction is here
or one of you must correct me here, or at least answer my question.
Is the reporting of the work of American Bishops correct by Catholic
Blogs or am I completely out of touch with the catechism, of what I
was taught growing up in the English Catholic Church. Am I perhaps
seeing actions and seeing and thinking of them erroneously.
account of the latest agreement on Baptism between us??? (am I wrong
in my catholicity by saying us as the universal church in this case?)
and the Lutheran, Baptist and Methodist persuasions? It is just like
the agreement over Novus Ordo with more experts from the gentiles
than ours??? It is like the great happiness after Vatican 2 in the
episcopalian/anglican groups when catholic priests no longer forbade
the Catholics in South America to listen to the gentile missionaries.
said we have, and to me it is obvious we still do, interpret Vatican
2 wrongly, The Popes since, have all stated Vatican 2 was pastoral and
could not, would not change Catholic Doctrine and Dogma. Yet
consistently there have been synods called with faux theologians of other
beliefs that have not admitted to these directives from the Papacy.
See my previous blog:
Let us be
honest with ourselves when we answer the question, “Has the Church
changed HER teachings on Baptism. Well obviously not, once made it
remains as such. Yet again as we can see interpretations are made and
supported by those not in unity with the Pope. Spin is the king and
all else is as smoke when confronted by conceit. Is it perhaps the
smoke described by Paul 6th.
what I was taught by priests, sisters and my father. Am I to
surrender this to what I can visibly hear, see and read from those who may be
considered to have broken their vows of obedience to the Papacy. Those who
severely punish their priests who break their vow of obedience made
to them, the bishops, every Maundy Thursday, at the Chrism Mass???? Am
I to be considered wrong headed and disrespectful by “many” not
is a “SOLEMN” occasion when sins are forgiven and we
re-enter the Church through the sacrament of regeneration. Who are
the ones who can forgive sins? Sins are certainly forgiven by the recognition of various imitation sacramental acts made by women, and men who are episcopalian, baptist,
methodist or lutheran ministers? This is a short cut to the women
priesthood. Also soon we must figure on the altered gendered in this picture. Can this be denied when the results of Vatican 2 are
examined in the light of the Catholic Faith?
Yes, the Church teaches anyone can Baptize
in the case of emergency, but there are provisos. As soon as possible, as
quickly as possible, a SOLEMN baptism must take place. The
Baptizer must have the aims of the Church in mind. I cannot for the
sake of my life, for the sake of my soul's eternal life of grace
contemplate a woman pastor who is contrary to Church Dogma on the
priesthood entertaining for one moment the Church's views on
anything. I cannot contemplate any pastor baptising anyone with the
Church's view on the Trinity being in the right frame of mind in
using the Trinitarian formulae.
When we consider the Baptism of
Desire I have to scoff at the theological stupidity involved in the
Bishop's pronouncement here, again especially in the light of how
bishops, ably supported by the gentiles outside the Church spun
Vatican 2. I truly wish that what I am about to write is not so, but
consider the facts. In the Church today a woman priest from another
heresy or schism could present herself to the Parish Priest and say,
“I thought about being Catholic once. I had the desire, so I am
Catholic, give me Holy Communion”. The dance to the Altar begins.
These people can say, “I was baptised with the right formulae, give
me Holy Communion”. Whose to deny them? Were you there? If you are
sure this will not happen write and correct me. Go to your parish
priest ask him what he would do? Better still in the light of this
episcopal agreement ask your bishop what he will do or allow. Watch
the slow shuffle of his feet as he tries to dance around you. In the
previous Catholic Church, the explanation for desire was simple. If
one was attending catechetical classes leading to Baptism if one died
before the solemn application of the sacrament, they because their
desire was active the Church acknowledged they had become Catholic.
Desire rarely lasts without action. Look at the young man in Matthew,
who could not get rid of his worldly goods (sins), he left and Jesus
watched him go. How uncharitable Jesus was, by the world today?
way remember the Bishops who made this agreement are the same
authorities who are supposed to make sure catechism is taught in the
Church today. We know that there are few of these dear fellows who are exemplary in the teaching of our faith. Is it any wonder so many going through the RCIA etc are
so woefully ignorant of the Church's teachings and make up their own
theology based on sensual opinions?
says it well, Chapter4 v 6; “My people have been silent, because
they had no knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will
reject thee who do not do the office of the priest to me. Thou hast
forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children”.
Bishops what a bright eternal future you may have also that future
will be afforded those children who do not inform their conscience. I would
also recommend Hosea Chapter 2 especially verses 10 to 15.
I must also write of my feelings that I have more in common with Tertullian on the use of and who can use scriptures correctly. I have more in common with Athanasius and Augustine than with the spin theologians in the Church today. Should I be faulted for this? Can I say that the American Bishops are still throwing down the gauntlet to Rome? Are they calling Rome to put up or shut up.
forget, print this out, forward by e mail to you parish priest or
bishop. The only reason you might have not to is because you lack
