Frankenmama: The Church on a Journey . When the Harlot of Babylon Jumps on the Backseat of a Motorcycle.
|Jesus wants the Church to be "on a journey, without fearing the upheavals of life.”
Living like Jesus demands the “courage of renunciation,” the pontiff said, a willingness to abandon traditions that are dear to us.
Changing and adapting is not about imposing something new, he said, “but leaving aside something old.”
Those early Christians had to learn to leave behind “important religious traditions and precepts, dear to the chosen people,” he said, by which their very “religious identity” was at stake.
In the end, they did not need a bunch of doctrines and traditions. but the simple announcement that “God is love,” Francis said, and in the face of this great truth, “even convictions and human traditions can and must be abandoned, since they are more of an obstacle than a help.”
Maybe a little bit of Mentevacante here!
Did you ever think you would have a pope who recycled old Beatles' Songs and teach it as "Catholic doctrine"?
“God often purifies, simplifies, and makes us grow by taking away, not by adding, as we might do,” he said.
Sorry to your parents and grandparents who had to watch as their Catholic religion was dismantled and destroyed before their very pious eyes. It was God's Will, you know. Just wait to hear what we are taking away next!
“True faith cleanses from attachments,” he said. “As a church, we are not called to corporate compromises, but to evangelical enterprise.”
I have no clue what he is talking about here!
