Uruguayan primate on abortion, sodo-marriage: “Let’s just move on…” February 21, 2014

I agree with Rorate, and have for a very, very long time.  Many viewpoints long held on Rorate but in the past dismissed by ostensibly “cooler minds” have not only been demonstrated to have been correct, but have come to be accepted by some who once held some hostility to those very beliefs posited on Rorate.  Such as this post, here, which I wish I could get to but do not have time today (plus, I always feel bad when I rip off another blog too much).

A case in point: Rorate has long maintained that the crisis in the Faith is, to a very large degree, a crisis of bishops.  I wholeheartedly agree. While we cannot just try to foist off all the problems in the Church on the bishops and do nothing ourselves to rectify matters, there is no other single area in the Church where the collapse in faith, duty, and zeal has been more apparent or more damaging.  That is one reason why this blog has long been willing to openly report on and question the actions of prelates around the world.

Some say that to do so invites scandal, or that pinning so much of the blame for the destruction in the Church could lead people to refuse the personal responsibility we all collectively bear for the crisis in the Faith (through our own hardness of heart and coldness of faith).  I say balderdash to both: it is not those who report on scandal who cause scandal – it is those who create the scandal in the first place!  On the other side of the coin, I have admitted on numerous occasions that we get the leadership we deserve, so we all bear some collective shame for the current dreary state of leadership.  If we want better leadership, we need to pray, fast, and do penance to that end and lead a truly sanctified life.

Having said that, there are men in high positions who simply refuse to cooperate with Grace, who have gone over to the world and its nightmarish errors, who are more concerned with being a political operative than a pastor of souls.  If this dire situation is to change, these men must be called to account.

A case in point.  The new Archbishop of Montevideo and, essentially, primate of Uruguay, was interviewed recently in a local newspaper, wherein he declared that abortion and sodo-marriage having been declared legal in Uruguay, the fight is over and it’s time to move on (interview question in italics, I add emphasis):

-The government approved last year the legalization of abortion. What is your opinion?
-I think we have to move on [mirar para adelantelit. “look ahead”] because the law is already approved.And here what is important is a Church that goes out to heal the wounds of society, that keeps defending the life of the unborn, from the first moment of conception until natural death. [In Uruguay, a realistic likelihood exists of being able to roll this law back.  And this is the response?  In spite of the words about “conception to natural death,” this bishop has just signaled total surrender on this issue.]
What do you think of the law that approved homosexual marriage?
The same, it has been approved, we have to move on  [mirar para adelantelit. “look ahead”]. I am against this law, but I believe that what matters is human dignity more than the sexual condition. [This is extremely easy to interpret as chucking doctrine in order to avoid having to take politically difficult stands.] I defend the family, formed by man and woman, defend that these families be generous in the transmission of life, and at the same time feel an enormous respect for the persons who form a homosexual couple. [So you “defend” one, but have “enormous respect” for the other, in situations of sin so dire it was viewed as a complete abomination for thousands of years?] It is an error to call it marriage, I believe it is an error for adoption to be allowed to them, but I understand that legal solutions be found[So, basically, you won’t oppose homosexualists raising children up to mimick them, as so much data indicates children raised by homosexuals tend to do]
What a nightmare.  I’m out of time, but this a total train wreck. Note the careful aping of the language of Pope Francis.  If abortion didn’t exist in the first place, there wouldn’t be so many wounds to heal, no?

This is a shepherd?  This is zeal for souls?  This man believes in eternal death or eternal life?  Has he ever heard it said “I will spit you out of my mouth?”

Thanks, Hans Urs.  You’ve created generations of complete indifferentists.

So much leftist terror around the world…..please pray February 21, 2014

The forces of the Left are on the march around the world.  So many major conflicts or vicious repressions ongoing around the world feature a left-wing government using violence against their own people to remain in power.  Syria (yes, in this one case, the government might be the least of several evils, but they are killing their own people), Ukraine, and now Venezuela.  Yes, even though the US media has kept a near total blackout on the collapse of the Venezuelan economy (the better to protect their now deceased hero Chavez and his neo-Cuban project), a little bit of news has managed to get out.  And things in Venezuela just managed to get a whole lot worse.

But first, the Primate of the Ukrainian Catholic Church, gloriously in union with Rome, has asked – begged, really – Catholics worldwide to pray one Our Father and one Hail Mary every day at 2pm EST for the intention of a peaceful and non-violent resolution to the conflict there.  To let you know what’s been happening, here is an absolutely horrific video I saw yesterday of government troops shooting non-violent protestors (children, many women, those with delicate consciences should not watch):

There may be a deal in the offing to end the violence, but there have been several such deals in recent weeks but when it comes time for the government to step down (as it promised to do) or in general acquiesce to popular demand, hey, guess what?  The armed thugs come back out!

Via Codgitator again, it seems the long simmering protests against the collapsed economy and totally failed leftist regime there have now brought violent reprisals.  Amid Venezuelan government efforts to block the internet, the international media is curiously (or incuriously) silent, as this reporter on the spot laments:

Dear International Editor:

Listen and understand. The game changed in Venezuela last night.What had been a slow-motion unravelling that had stretched out over many years went kinetic all of a sudden.

What we have this morning is no longer the Venezuela story you thought you understood.

Throughout last night, panicked people told their stories of state-sponsored paramilitaries onmotorcycles roaming middle class neighborhoods, shooting at people and  storming into apartment buildings, shooting at anyone who seemed like he might be protesting.

Venezuela is obviously overwhelmingly Catholic, so I think similar prayers as those for Ukraine are in order.  And, of course, if you haven’t been, pray for the Catholics of Syria, who have had it worst of all (save for few Catholics left in Iraq) for quite some time.

What an ugly, ugly world.  Can you imagine being pagan/atheist, and believing this – THIS -is as good as it gets?


For pedants who might want to argue – yes, the governments of Syria, Ukraine, and Venezuela are overtly leftist. The Ukraine government is totally dominated by Putinists, closely aligned with Brother Russia, and Putin’s government is certainly left wing in outlook and especially action.  Neither government (Russia, Ukraine) has any qualms killing a few hundreds or thousands of its own citizens who get in the way or do inconvenient things.

Nothing has more defined leftism in government than willingness to use violence against their own people.  Ever since the French Revolution fundamentally deformed human government, the left has always been most comfortable using institutionalized violence against the citizens as its prime means of terror and thus, control.  Right wing governments which have sadly performed similar atrocities  aped extant leftist practices.

The fall of the Soviet Union meant nothing. The Left is on the march around the world, and all the groundwork is being laid (has been laid) in this country for its ascendance, as well.

of my soul, the suffering and love of my heart, be more
honoured! Whoever gazes upon me already consoles me.”

We now implore all the Angels and Saints to intercede
for us as we pray this Holy Novena to the Most Holy Face

with your sufferings at the foot of the cross, and through the
united efficacy of both, obtain the favour which we humbly

endure. Call them and admit them to your most sweet embrace

Jesus, that thus we may have a share, small though it may

Hail Mary, Daughter of God the Father! Hail Mary, Mother

Mary, Temple of the Most Holy Trinity! Hail Mary, our
mistress, our wealth, our mystic rose. Queen of our hearts,
our Mother, our life, our sweetness and our dearest hope!
We are all Thine, and all we have is Thine. O Virgin blessed
above all things, may Thy soul be in us to magnify the Lord;
may Thy spirit be in us to rejoice in God. Place Thyself, 0
faithful Virgin, as a seal upon our hearts, that in Thee and
through Thee we may be found faithful to God. Grant, most
gracious Virgin, that we may be numbered among those
whom Thou art pleased to love, to teach and to guide, to
favour and to protect as Thy children. Grant that with the help
of Thy love, we may despise all earthly consolation and cling
to heavenly things, until through the Holy Spirit, Thy faithful
spouse, and through Thee, His faithful spouse, Jesus Christ,
Thy Son, be formed within us for the glory of the Father.

generous faith, thy profound and sincere humility and thy
burning love, was honoured by Jesus Christ with singular
privileges, and in particular, with the leadership of the other
apostles and the primacy of the whole church, of which thou
was made the foundation stone, do thou obtain for us the
grace of a lively faith, that shall not fear to profess itself
openly in its entirety and in all of its manifestations, even
to the shedding of blood, if occasion should demand it, and
to the sacrifice of life itself in preference to surrender. Obtain
for us likewise a sincere loyalty to our Holy Mother the
Church. Grant that we may ever remain most closely and
sincerely united to the Holy Father, who is the heir of thy
faith and of thy authority, the one true visible head of the
Catholic Church. Grant, moreover, that we may follow, in
all humility and meekness, the Church’s teaching and coun-
sels and may be obedient to all her precepts, in order to be
able here on earth to enjoy a peace that is sure and undis-
turbed, and to attain one day in heaven to everlasting happi-
ness. Amen.

we do to express our gratitude? How can we speak of our
joy? That you have deigned to hear us, that you have chosen
to answer us in our hour of need. We say this because we
know that our prayers will be granted. We know that you,
in your loving kindness, listened to our pleading hearts, and
will give, out of your fullness, the answer to our problems.
Mary, our Mother, thank you for your intercession on our
behalf. Saint Joseph, thank you for your prayers.

all the affections of our hearts and all our actions may be
always conformed to your most Holy Will, so that after
having seen you here on earth in appearances and in a dark
manner by the means of faith, we may come at last to con-
template you face to face, in the perfect possession of you
forever in paradise. Amen.

The Nativity Story Movie Blasphemous and Sacrilegious February 21, 2014

We got that movie The Nativity Story some years back, when it came out on DVD.  We watched it once, then trashed it.  It was a very protestant-oriented movie.  That, and it had no plot to speak of.  It just ended abruptly with the flight into Egypt.

But the biggest problem, as the priest notes below, was the depiction of Our Blessed Mother as being afflicted with the pangs of labor.  This is heresy.  Labor pains were inflicted on women due to the stain of Original Sin caused by our first mother.  But Our Lady was preserved from Original Sin.  She, thus, had no labor pains.  This may seem like a small thing, but that just shows how inured to blasphemy and sacrilege we’ve become.  That’s why I say the movie is pretty protestant oriented, they treat Our Lady as just a lucky woman what happened to done birth her a Messiah.

Yes, that’s how protestants talk, I know, I used to be one.

Watch this, and see what you think.  Please say 3 Ave’s for the priest:
