Putting away for a moment all the distractions that are besetting us just now - presidential races, scandals, chaos and the rest - I and many others are dreading what is soon to be coming from Rome, a Rome we can no longer trust. I refer of course to the Pope's final word, if that it may be, on his horrifying Synod of Sodomy.
More than anything else, I believe, his final statement will define his papacy and lay out for all to see what he is planning for a wounded and in some areas dying Church. If his statement is what so many of us fear then we know that God has decided to let us, like His Son on Good Friday, drink the cup to its dregs.
We are in Passion Week now, in the month of St Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church and Terror of Demons. Passion week will conclude on St Joseph's feast day, the day we are supposed to hear the final Synod summation, or exhortation, from the Pope. The portent of all this could not possibly be more significant.
Already that joke of a Cardinal, Walter Kasper, is crowing about the document, so we must expect the worst. And the media is keeping suspiciously quiet about it even though they know full well it is planned for release on St Joseph's feast day. If the exhortation from Francis is as bad as we expect it to be, and if the Vatican, in an in-your-face act of contempt, releases it on the feast day of the Head of the Holy Family then the current regime that controls Christ's Church will be spitting in St Joseph's face.
Frankly, I am simply not good enough a writer, or a Catholic, to write about this supreme insult that they are seemingly planning. I lack the grit to write about it in the proper way; it is just too awful to contemplate that this could actually be happening. I can only enter Holy Week, beginning after they release their document, and try to see that it is the Church hanging on that Cross now, as Christ once did. This document, if it is what we expect, will be another nail spiked through Jesus' hand, and another jeering cry of malice towards Christ and His Church.
Perhaps Pope Francis is simply off his crumpet. I just don't know. That he is incoherent and inconsistent, yes. That he has the characteristics of a martinet, yes. That he is capable of doing good if he so chooses, yes. Yet if this document is what the execrable Kasper is hinting it will be, it - and all the other disastrous innovations of this papacy - will turn the average Catholic into the average protestant. And it will be the end of conversions.
I wont say that my sins, my personal sins, did not contribute to God's anger,which is now being manifested in the crucifixion of His Church.
