In the City all day, in conversations with various contacts, so not much from me today.
Except to report on the rapidly growing consensus that the long game is to impose formally onto the existing structures of the Church an entirely new religion.
Over the next nine months look for them to bring in, one at a time (in no particular order):
1) some form of non-canonical female “diaconate” (that we won’t officially call the diaconate, at least not just yet)
2) the mass reinstatement of priests who were laicised in order to get married
3) formalized permission for intercommunion with non-Catholic Christian communities
4) some decree devolving doctrinal jurisdiction to national conferences
5) the declaration of a Council or Council-like assembly of world religious leaders to ratify a pre-written declaration of a global, humanistic, Christ-less Christianity
The latest from Fra Cristoforo:
“Tip-offs on Intercommunion, part IV: whether the C9 are hiding something”
by Fra Cristoforo
I begin this post by citing for you an article by Sandro Magister, which confirms all the “Tip-offs” about intercommunion with the Luterans (read here)
That was just to tell you that we are not making up what we write. But there’s more. In these days the famous C9 was held, that is, the council of 9 Cardinals of whom we have spoken before. These 9 Cardinals are the “councillors” of Bergoglio. And the press office of the Vatican publishes the contents of these meetings, aside from, however, a topic which seems still to have to stay confidential.
That is “Intercommunion”.
Bergoglio has not managed to attend all the meetings of this C9. It seems that he has not attended only twice.
In one of the meetings in which he participated, the Argentinean Cardinal seems to have “pressed” not only for the reform of the Curia, but also for the “support” of the Commission which is currently working on intercommunion with the Protestants. Now, from what I’ve been given to believe, it seems that by April these Cardinals must meet together again. And that by then a sort of “pastoral letter” must be ready which would begin to prepare the people of God for a liturgical ecumenism; therefore pertaining to intercommunion with the Lutherans.
It seems that it’s a done deal. Without considering the damage which such a thing will provoke. The danger of a schism is I believe already imminent, as indeed Socci has recalled in one of his latest articles (read here)
In the meantime the purges of the Vatican continue. Cardinal Burke has been sent on a mission. Monsignor Negri has been retired in record time. Only the fate of Cardinal Müller is still awaited, which ought to arrive any moment. And it’s as good as done. All the same, it’s strange that just yesterday (at the conclusion of the C9), Burke’s missionary brief was made known. In fact I wouldn’t say it’s that strange! The C9 has spoken about how to reform the Curia and purify the College of Cardinals.
And if some people are still waiting for Bergoglio to answer the “dubia”, I’ll answer just has he – the Pope – answered 15 days ago at a dinner: “THEY’VE GOT ANOTHER THING COMING!”
