Bump: It’s not about marriage; it’s a purge
I think a couple of re-posts could be in order, just to lay out some of our working ideas.
This is one of the most important. The current crisis has nothing at all to do with marriage or divorce.
It’s entirely and exclusively a purge, a means of getting rid of the remaining faithful.
Some time ago, just before the opening of Synod 1, someone more or less laid out what the Church was going to look like when they were done. This pontificate is the End Game of the whole Revolution that has been in constant forward motion, with almost no brake, since 1965 in the institutions of the Church. They know, and we know, that they’re almost done.
“Many Catholics are making the mistake of thinking this [the entire Synod process since the Consistory of 2014] is an attack on marriage. No. This is an assault on the very foundations of the Faith itself: the Eucharist and the priesthood.
“Once this principle is in place, that doctrine is irrelevant and practice can be whatever the winds of the world, or fashion or feelings or personal preference dictate, absolutely nothing in the Church is safe. It will first destroy the priesthood, and then end the Eucharistic belief of the Church. After that, we know that nothing will survive. Not the teachings on the sanctity of life, the Marian dogmas, popular piety or devotions or any of the practices, traditions, doctrines or dogmas that form the deposit of the Faith itself.
“The priesthood would be the first relic of the old Faith to be effectively destroyed. A decision to allow divorced and civilly ‘remarried’ Catholics to receive Holy Communion would, for example, logically spell the end of the return to orthodoxy among young priests and seminarians that has grown so much a feature of Catholic life in recent decades.”
Simply put, and in point form, it’s a Purge.
Make it a requirement that the Faithful, from bishops to priests to laity, may not refuse the systematic desecration of the Holy Eucharist
– make it very, very difficult for even the bravest and most orthodox bishops to dissent from the programme
– make it impossible for priests to act individually to defend the Eucharist
– make it impossible for seminarians to maintain the doctrines of the Faith while in the seminary
– make it impossible for seminarians to be ordained who are unwilling to desecrate the Eucharist
– make it impossible for lay faithful who refuse to participate in the desecration of the Eucharist to remain in their parishes.
