Here We Go Again: Francis Explicitly Denies What the Church is All About and the Neo-Cons and the Neo-Trads Shout AMBIGUITY!!!!
|Even the Children Themselves Cry Out !
It is a mistake for the Church to try to hold onto old traditions or to have clear answers for everything, Pope Francis said Thursday.
Dr. Chojnowski: We are so used to hearing abominations from Francis that we let them pass now as if they are just more expected static. If we really consider this statement, cited in the article below, we can see that it denies the very foundation of the Christian Faith and the Life of the Church. Dare I ask, what is the Holy Roman Catholic and Apostolic Church about if not for preserving "old traditions" (i.e., Sacred Tradition coming from God the Son and God the Holy Ghost through the Apostles and their lawful successors --- and all of the traditions uses to surround and uphold the Sacred Deposit the Faith and the Life of Sacramental Grace) and "hav[ing] clear answers for everything" (i.e., 2,000 years of preserving the specifics of definitive Catholic doctrine. This was the whole reason for Catholic theology, philosophy, the Fathers of the Church and their interpretation of Sacred Scriptures, the whole reason for the Ecumenical Councils with their arguments over such important and essential things as, even, the ending of a Greek word, the Scholastic doctors and their objections, responses, and replies to objections, papal encyclicals, and the vaunted "Jesuitism" in moral matters, etc.). So, in other words, Francis is saying the Church has been on a deviant path for 2,000 years and only now --- well at least since Vatican II --- has understood its mission of bringing peace and harmony to man's earthly life, so that they can --- perhaps, be mulched and reincorporated into the soil of Mother Earth.
Let this suffice for now but I want to comment on the rest of the address tomorrow. It leaves you shaking your head as to how anyone can believe that this man holds the Catholic faith and could actually be a friend of Catholic Tradition.
