Protestantization of the Church Accelerates: German Bishops to Allow Communion for Remarried Divorcees October 6, 2016

Posted by Tantumblogo in asshatery, disaster, error, foolishness, Francis, General Catholic, horror, paganism, Revolution, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, Society, the struggle for the Church, unbelievable BS.

It is amazing the degree to which the program of Francis, Bishop of Rome, follows that of the modernist/progressive elements of Vatican II.  Relative to the statements in the documents themselves, Vatican II unleashed a torrent of changes and chaos all out of proportion to the (I freely admit, and furthermore, passionately argue) rather limited errors that were promulgated therein.  There is not much in Vatican II that can be taken to directly attack belief in the Real Presence, and yet the changes implemented since Vatican II have constituted a full-on assault on that precious belief and have left only a small minority of “Catholics” believing in this Dogma so absolutely central to the Faith.  Heck, it is THE central Dogma.

The revolution was worked, primarily, with small changes.  A shift of emphasis here, a dubious pronouncement there, a wink, a nod, and all of a sudden, we had an entirely new religion.  Please understand, I am not under-emphasizing the importance or the scale of the errors present in most all the documents of Vatican II at all.  I am simply saying, relative to their effects (ginormous), those changes themselves were relatively small.

And we see the same thing at work in the wake of the disastrous 2014/5 synods and the post-synodal exhortation Amoris Laetitia.  Amoris Laetitia is a disastrous document for numerous reasons, it does gravely undermine the sanctity of marriage and the Eucharist to an amazing degree, but most all the well-placed concern over the document has come more from the, by now, all too predictable consequences of what would flow from it.  By leaving the door open to Communion for those persisting in adulterous relationships with a still valid marriage under what were purported to be supposed “special circumstances,” following a “process of discernment and penance,” is now rapidly becoming a de facto acceptance of divorce in the Church and the provision of the Eucharist for those who manifestly and constantly commit adultery in a relationship outside their still-valid marriage.

Already we know that many if not all of the Bishops of the Buenos Aires region, and probably, inevitably, all of Argentina, are intending to implement a very free-wheeling interpretation of Amoris Laetitia – an interpretation provided and reinforced by Francis himself!! –  opening the Eucharist to many divorced and “remarried” people.  And now it seems the German bishops, the ultimate propulsive force behind this radical departure into heresy and schism, are preparing to implement Communion for the divorced and remarried on a grander scale, which will apply to the entire country:

Just after the news about Pope Francis’ support of more liberalizing approaches to the “remarried” question in Argentina and in Rome, news is now coming to us from Germany that other elements of the Catholic Church are moving in the same direction. Stephan Burger, Archbishop of Freiburg, Germany, has just announced that he expects the German Bishops’ Conference soon to allow Communion for the “remarried” throughout Germany.  Katholisch.de, the official website of the German Bishops’ Conference reports on this same news today:

Stephan Burger, the Archbishop of Freiburg, expects a document of the German Bishops concerning marriage and the family and concerning the Church’s dealing with the remarried divorcees. The Bishops’ Conference has seen it as its task to pick up on Pope Francis’ recent explanations and to make them more concrete, said Burger to the Diocesan newspaper Konradsblatt in Karlsruhe.

More importantly, moreover, Burger says that Pope Francis himself wants to allow Communion for the “remarried,” as Katholisch.de also reports:

An essential point of the papal document concerning marriage and the family (Amoris Laetitia) is, in the eyes of Burger, that Francis himself wants to make free the path for the remarried to receive Holy Communion. This is, in individual cases, possible after an ‘in-depth examination and formation of conscience and after a pastoral accompaniment.’ The Archbishop stressed that ‘life is too complicated in order to have at hand a clear and unequivocal solution for everybody and everything.’ [Good Lord, you could justify positively anything with this kind of moral relativism.  Really, amoral relativism.  You  may as well chuck the entire moral edifice of the Church with this kind of attitude, which is exactly what the leftists have always wanted: a totally neutered Church that says nothing of value to anyone, a worldly do-good society that is just another damned NGO jockeying for funding.]

Katholisch.de rightly reminds its readers that the Diocese of Freiburg has already allowed, “for several years now, the giving out of Communion to remarried divorcees and to admit them to the Sacrament of Penance in individual cases.” However, in 1993, the Vatican had condemned a similar decision made by the German Dioceses of Freiburg, Rottenburg-Stuttgart and Mainz. [What is this BS about Confession being “denied” someone.  I mean, the priest may not grant absolution if one continues to manifestly persist in a grave sin without any purpose of amendment or indication of such – like someone living with someone other than their spouse, and engaging in carnal relations with them – but where on earth are such people denied “admission” to the Sacrament of Confession?]

…….The Francis Revolution keeps showing its disastrous effects. Another example of just how damaging the effects of this papacy actually are can be seen in a report by the Italian journalist Marco Tosatti. He reports today that the Belgian Bishop Johan Bonny – appointed by Pope Francis himself – has now proposed in the form of an indirect question “whether it would not be possible to establish a new rite to celebrate homosexual unions as well as cohabiting couples.”

They will leave nothing left.  Look, I use the term “different religion” as a kind of catch-all for the modernist/leftist influences in the Church, and there are certainly many arguments, some quite persuasive, that the Novus Ordo establishment-types have constituted a new and different religion since Vatican II, but this here……..this is making the tattered fig leaf of unity whither to nothingness.  If Communion becomes a free-for-all, then it means nothing – read my previous post from St. Justin Martyr, on adherence to Doctrine, practice, and eschewing of all sin that contradicts same, as being a prerequisite for reception of Holy Communion.  And that was written almost 1900 years ago!

I’ve always been very reticent to draw the most obvious conclusions from the experience of the Church in the past 50+ years since the Council, because the implications of such considerations are soul-crushing.  Under Benedict (boy, was I fooled – well, kinda), that fig leaf of unity seemed to have a little bit of realism to it, we, or I, could fool ourselves that the worst was over and things would improve, at least after a fashion, and maybe many years down the line.  That is obviously not the case.  Apparently, these guys are absolutely determined to force the issue.  You will either submit to the new religion and all that implies, or…….you can go through many months or years of agonizing existential angst, at the least, that’s for sure.

I don’t let myself think about this stuff much because the answers are all very bleak and none too comforting.  But, like I said, they appear absolutely determined to make those who take this “stuff” – this religion, this Faith – seriously think about constantly.

I’d probably be better off if I just totally unplugged.  Yellowknife, here I come!

At what point does the handful of still Catholic Cardinals demand that this papacy be declared invalid? How far can this go? If “the gates of hell” will not prevail then how much worse can it get?

Until you see the annihilation of the soul, my sister.

Dear Tantum,
Please try to cover Trump’s political situation right now. Please urge your readers to contact their Republican representatives in Congress to support a dump Trump movement.

“….but where on earth are such people denied “admission” to the Sacrament of Confession?””

Especially in a country where apparently even most *priests* don’t even go regularly to Confession any longer?

I’m so glad I’m in the SSPX and not contributing to the radicals and their monstrous experiments.

Traditioninaction.org has an article on St. Anthony Marie Claret, apostle to Cuba in the 19th century. I think it is in the category ‘saint of the day’. It details how St. Anthony was sent to Cuba, and Cuban freemasonry rejected him. They tried to kill him repeatedly and the Spanish Crown decided to withdraw him. As St. Anthony was leaving Cuba, he cursed the island that had rejected him. This was in the latter half of the 19th century. After independence, Cuba became known as a center of vice for bad Americans seeking immoral vacations. Some 80ish years later, the Castro brothers communize Cuba. That is their punishment, right there.

The same thing is going to happen to NATO. People have refused to follow the SSPX over lack of catechesis, and it leads to monsters like Francis having a heyday. They will descend into communism for their heterodoxy and democracy, although it must be said that if we followed the SSPX on economics, communism would not exactly be off the table either. On the other hand, there would be no question on ecumenism and religious liberty if everyone would follow the SSPX, and marriage would remain intact.

Under Benedict (boy, was I fooled – well, kinda), that fig leaf of unity seemed to have a little bit of realism to it, we, or I, could fool ourselves that the worst was over and things would improve, at least after a fashion, and maybe many years down the line. That is obviously not the case.

Those who have studied the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin (and, yes, even some of those not approved by the Church) were not fooled.

In my opinion, for what it’s worth, the alleged apparitions reported at Garabandal, Spain, are being vindicated on a daily basis.

The alleged seers reported that communism would “come again,” that some communist priests would cause much confusion in the Church, and that it would look as if the Church has disappeared.

Several apparitions have stated that Satan would enter unto the very summit of the Church. Are those apparitions true? If so, are we at that point?

Camper - October 7, 2016

I’ve heard of the apparations of Garabandal! Great, and highly recommended!

Malachi Martin wrote a book that Lucifer was enthroned in the Vatican. Some people don’t believe it but I do. The proof is all around us.

The original St. Michael prayer was written by Pope Leo XIII after having experienced a vision in which evil spirits released from hell were trying to destroy the Church. The devil and his legions were vanquished when St. Michael appeared and cast them back into hell. The prayer includes the following: “These most crafty enemies have filled and inebriated with gall and bitterness the Church, the spouse of the immaculate Lamb, and have laid impious hands on her most sacred possessions. In the Holy Place itself, where the See of Holy Peter and the Chair of Truth has been set up as the light of the world, they have raised the throne of their abominable impiety, with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has been struck, the sheep may be.”

6. Magdalene - October 7, 2016

I do think Bergoglio is the pope but an anti-pope. He is bringing down the Church quickly because of 50 years of equilibration and non-catechesis. The Church is indeed becoming as if one more of the thousands of ‘denominations’ as it may seem from the outside and perhaps from the inside. We MUST cling to Jesus and Mary. Truth does NOT change! We are watching the crumbling of our society and the Church at the same time! Never dreamed this could happen. The sheep have been given over to the wolves to a large extent. We need God’s intervention both in the society and in the Church. We little ones can only pray, fast, and remain faithful no matter the cost which looks to be increasing daily.

I guess if I had to say there was one central dogma, it would be the Incarnation, of which the Eucharist is an extension.

8. Observer - October 7, 2016

There appears to be a concerted program in operation with the aim of destroying the Catholic Church from within. This program dates from before Vat II, as key players were already in place during that Council. Destruction isn’t the final aim however, as we are now witnessing the first stages of the next step, namely to merge not only Catholicism but Christianity in general with other religions. Strenuous efforts are going to be made for the ‘unification of all Abrahamic Faiths’. Those Catholics now in their early 20s may see such a development in the next 50 years.

Chicago’s Blaise Cupcake is now a cardinal. Ughhh!

Judy - October 9, 2016

AND Farrell. So much for the “he is being called to Rome because he is too progressive” excuse. This doesn’t bode well for the appointment of a new bishop.

Gc5341 - October 9, 2016

No it does not…..Bishop Mark Seitz perhaps?

Tantumblogo - October 11, 2016

No it does not! And what bodes even worse is the demands of the majority of older clergy, who still make up most of priests here, for a liberal bishop.

Whoever said Farrell was called to Rome for being too liberal? Yeah right!
