Monday Roundup: because I’m just too damn busy to write about all this myself

From Church Militant:
2015-10-03-niles-eFather Dariusz Oko is a Polish priest 

…and professor at the Pontifical University of John Paul II in Krakow. He is best known for his 2012 paper “With the Pope Against the Homoheresy,” which details a large homosexual network within the Catholic Church that is attempting to undermine the Faith from within.
Boguslaw Rąpała: Fr. Krzysztof Charamsa has publicly announced that he is gay. And it is you, Reverend Father Professor, that are the target of his sharpest attack. How do you, Father, react to this? 

Fr. Dariusz Oko: After the attack on me, which was launched on Wednesday, I thought that he was gay and it was confirmed. I warned that he could end up like Fr. Węcławski or Fr. Czajkowski, and it also came true…

After the speech, one could see in Fr. Charamsa a disturbed, immature and selfish personality. It is something terrible, that he puts gay sex above God, so to speak.

From Faith in Our Families
130672
a warning to watch out for the Synod snake-in-the-grass, Englishman Vincent Nichols.

How Cardinal Vincent Nichols pulled the wool over our eyes just before the 2015 Synod.
I am reliably informed that the response in many of the diocese to this questionnaire was so low or non existent that those Bishops refrained from submitting anything at all. After all – this was not an official synod questionnaire. I am also reliably informed that at least one Bishop said he wasn’t consulted on content of the finished report before it was released at a press conference by Vincent Nichols.

Did Cardinal Vincent Nichols consult any of the Bishops of England and Wales on the content of this report before its release?

… a number of local and national organisations” also took part. According to Westminster’s website these organisations were: A Call to Action (ACTA)… The Association of Interchurch Families…The Dorcas group… No men’s groups seem to have been consulted. No clergy groups seem to have been consulted. No orthodox or more traditionally minded groups seem to have been consulted. Why?

From our Italian friends at La Nuova Bussola Quotidiana

Single direction for a Gay Friendly Synod
It would be wrong to think that this is a simple episode, the case of Monsignor Krzysztof Charamsa, the official of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith who revealed his homosexuality and introduced his companion: [that it is merely] an extreme case of a frustrated theologian of the Curia who took advantage of the Synod to get rid of the burden of his double life and seek to influence to his advantage the Synod on the family, just started…Too many elements do, however point to this being just the latest episode of a strategy that comes from afar and which aims to use the Synod on the family to make a decisive step forward in the project of the gay lobby in the Church…

And from our new buddies at Denzinger Bergoglio 

That is why the Church, with characteristic wisdom conferred by its Divine Spouse, has always decreed that only Catholics who lead a life in accordance with the Faith may be admitted as godparents in Baptism. Therefore, those who publically and obstinately live in grave sin may not be admitted to the special mission of guarding anyone’s faith.

    Great blog. I’m glad I’m coming more and more in touch with Catholics who have the same mindset as I do. I would like to comment on the sadness many perceive, and ask: what is a church building not in use as a church anymore? Just a building. Don’t forget, the Church is not seated in the Vatican, WE are the Church, the ecclesia, we all are. If the Vatican goes down, we might shed a tear or two in sadness and anger, but we wipe our eyes dry and we keep moving on. Now, the Gospels are starting to live again. Read Matthew from start to end. Every one of us now has the responsability to keep up the rules of the Church, keep up the true meaning of the Scriptures, keep our Sacraments and cherish them – at home, in your hearts – support the priests who stick to the rules and if there aren’t any priests, then start doing things yourself – except for the Consecration, but the CCC leaves to us lays the possibility to do spiritual communion. So, is there anything lost? The only ones who have already lost are the ones who think they are winning. Because if God is with us, who can beat us?
    Stop being sad. Forget about that pope if he goes asunder, if he does so he is already lost himself. Don’t forget what is said in the Gospel of St. Matthew by Jesus Christ: “Let the dead bury their dead”. Let it all go. Every home, every true Catholic is now a single fortress armed with the True Word, and not even the biggest evil can beat such a formidable army led by Arcangel St. Michael. Have faith, have courage. Just like the slaughtered Christians in Syria who wouldn’t renounce Jesus and have become martyrs of our faith – see how forgotten they are by the Vatican? Not by us. They are leading the way. And what they could muster in courage to die for Our Lord, we surely can.

    I am increasingly convinced that this sadness which I hear of so often, and which (every time I hear of it) invariably follows a period of tremendous confusion and despair at the state of things, and comes after persevering despite the sheer superhuman effort it seems to require, is itself a wonderful grace. To have tears to offer up in such circumstances is surely a beautiful thing.

  3. FranklinWasRight says:

    I think this has to do with the total lack of historical perspective most Catholics have thanks to poor education. I was raised by very liberal Catholics, heretical even. The kind that are waiting patiently for women’s ordination and fully support a woman’s right to choose, gay marriage etc. I didn’t know the Latin Mass still existed anywhere until my twenties, I don’t think one existed in the small rural state I grew up in. Everyone I knew adored JPII by the way, to the point of it almost seeming like idolatry to me. “Thank God for Vatican II” was a common utterance by my feminist religion teacher.

    My point is that I had excellent history teachers at my Catholic high school, and we spent much of our religion class learning church history in detail. I believe this is what saved me later when I had a reversion to the faith. Knowing the history of the various heresies, anti-popes, in fighting, etc helped me cope when I learned about traditional Catholocism and the truth of Vatican II. My history teachers didn’t have an agenda, they simply presented history as fact and included the good, the bad and the ugly. Having seen how awful history instruction in most schools is, I realize that my experience is the exception and not the norm, and that better history instruction would greatly help in a crisis such as this.

    That’s the main reason I started this blog. For some time now I’ve realised I and my friends have had an advantage. Being Traditionalists, we are not invested so heavily emotionally in the contradictory notions of Novusordoism and NuChurch. This has made it possible for us to keep laughing, though perhaps in a grim and gallows-ish sort of way, at all that has been going on. None of us has the least notion that we are being defeated or driven out of the Church, and none of us has the least fear that any of this will negate, alter or undermine the Truth of Christ. But a great many conservative Catholics have been mislead into believing that the pope = the faith, so a bad pope proves it wrong somehow. The ubiquity of this fallacy has shocked me. And the genuine fear and sadness I have seen has distressed me. I hope by sharing, not so much deep analysis, but jokes and pointed pithy remarks, to dispel some of this gloom. Make em laugh, and then they can maybe stop crying and freaking out long enough to listen to more sensible heads.

    It seems as though my prayers are being answered. I’m getting past the extreme anger I experience as the homofascists march on unabated. Now it’s sadness that engulfs my spirit. Sad for unrepentent sinners; sad for the Church generally; and sad for the shepherds whose judgment only God knows, but whose fruits tell us much.

  6. Barbara says:

    It’s hard to understand why there is no groundswell of protest from the man in the pew. Surely now there is enough evidence for even the most dense Catholic that there is something wrong.
