Pope Francis’ horrible, awful, embarrassing, no-good January prayer intention video January 11, 2016

Can you say indifference?  Can you say kumbayah?  Aging hippie?  Materialist?

When I watched this, aside from feeling an enormous sickness in the pit of my stomach, my biggest sensation was one of profound embarrassment.  Embarrassment for the Pope and hangers on who produced this worldly abortion.  Disgust was another emotion.

It’s profoundly disgusting to see the Pope elevate heinously false religions and disaffected sects to any kind of equivalence with the Church.  But even more disgusting is his apparent willingness to forget the name Jesus Christ whenever his worldly ambitions necessitate doing so.

Oh, I really enjoy watching the muslim declare his belief in love.  Right…….sure thing.  Ask any woman in Stockholm, Cologne, Helsinki, or anywhere in the ummah just how much muslim men “love” them some women.

I’m sure most everyone has seen the video already.  I don’t think Rorate backed the clock up quite far enough when prognosticating what this pontificate would be like, it’s past 1977 and more like 1968.  The very heart of the Revolution, and also a time when the so-called ecumenical movement was really much more vibrant and a graver threat than it is today.  Obviously, there seems an effort afoot to recreate those “glory days.”

Louie Verricchio produced a new set of subtitles for the video to produce something that I think is, sadly, much more accurate:

“I enjoy the esteem of men, honoring their false gods and encouraging their rejection of the One True Faith”  Whether one believes this is the Pope’s deliberate intent, or not, practically speaking, can this be denied?

Do you find it too strong when Verricchio said Pope Francis denies Jesus Christ?  But isn’t ecumenism/interreligious dialogue as it is practiced by the progressive wing more or less predicated on that denial?

Look, this kind of worldly pap has been going on since Vatican II, there were these three things called Assisi, after all, but the really difficult to stomach aspect is this new video format all the Pope’s prayer intentions will be publicized in.  If the prayer intention had been merely verbal, it would have been banal and forgettable, but  in video format it becomes unforgivably worldly, cheap, and cloying.

Much more of this kind of thing to come as the year unfolds, I fear.  The papacy is being remade in ways it may be impossible to undo, short of a true saint/great miracle.

Look, I know for some readers this stuff is beyond old hat.  I know they are past done with the entirety of what might be called the institutional Church.  But there are many more who haven’t grasped the nature of the crisis.  I will continue to write for them, since I was one of them myself not long ago.

Absolutely, Tantum. It is very important that you do continue to raise awareness for those who are still shocked and surprised by all of this buffoonery. After all, each and every one of us was in that position at some time ourselves. People who put this sort of stuff out there are doing a great service for Catholics and for the Church, contrary to comments made by those who believe a naked emperor should remain unnoticed.

And, yes, there are those of us who just have a hard time getting very upset or excited about all of this any more. We struggle in retaining the baby while discarding the wash water.

Whether these guys are legitimate popes or bishops or priests is not for us to decide. Maybe they are and at the same time it would not surprise me to arrive at the General Judgment and find out that they were not so all along. I don’t need to figure that one out. What I do know is that it is strictly impossible for me to exercise those religious tenets I was taught in the 50s never to abandon for any reason while at the same time accepting that I share in common a religion with these bozos. Can’t be done. The law of non-contradiction interferes.

Glad you’re back, Tantum. I hope your Christmas was holy and your family are well.

That said…This make my soul cry tears of flame. At least, that’s how it feels.

Nice to have you back.

To me, the most offensive part was the ending shot, the one Rorate posted. If ever there was a clear expression of indifferentism, this was it. And from the Holy See itself.

I keep thinking it can’t get much worse, and then once again I am disappointed.

Tantumblogo - January 11, 2016

Yeah, and notice the worldly baby Jesus image instead of the crucified Christ. Naturally……

I wonder if the videos are going to get worse from here. I keep thinking like Frank, and like him, keep getting surprised not in a good way.

Sad to see the ‘infestation’ of liberals in the Church, like in the government and I’m afraid like the Muslims in the EU. I have prayer friend in London and it’s horrible over there. We missed you Tantumblogo.

Moozlems are everywhere not now trying but doing ,not only to bring down The Catholic Church but to spread their usual lies . One of which there are over ( according to the Homosexualy infested BBC )100,000 Hispanic Catholics in the USA which are converting to Moozlemism. As soon as one grows a beard over here in the UK the BBC got them as a Moozlem .

So, on a practical level, no praying for the special intention of the Holy Father in the Morning Offering, then?
Just more prayers for him.

This is exact opposite of the homily a visiting priest at our parish on Friday. He said all religions aren’t equal. Catholicism is superior because we believe Jesus Christ is God and he founded the Church. I couldn’t help thinking of how opposite of Pope Francis and some bishops he sounded. I wish he was our parish priest. He was a long time before my reconversion. Even then I liked him because he spoke the truth. There are some good NO priests out there.

It is becoming clear PF and his supporters are pushing to form a ‘one world’ UN-approved religion.
