There is nothing we can say to the latest remarks by the Pope. The world and the media are salivating with delight, good Catholics, good Christians everywhere, good non-Christians everywhere, are feeling helpless. If the Church is Christ, then we are watching the Crucifixion again, now in real time.
A Pope of Rome condemns these sinners to Hell by not telling them the hard truth.
A Pope of Rome joins the crowd who shake their fists at God.
Who could ever have believed that the homosexual perversion would have run so deep in the Church and landed so near the very top. Those who have recently claimed that Paul VI was himself committing this sin seem to have been vindicated.
Evil pours over the world like black slime and a Pope of Rome encourages it.
I personally needed a wake up call like this. It is a time for us to avail ourselves of the Sacraments of Confession and Holy Communion, while we still can, to wash away our sins so that God will take pity on us and end this chastisement. Every new papacy has been worse than the last. John XXIII was a silly do-gooder in many ways. Paul VI was ghastly. John Paul II, who early on gave us hope, eventually followed the destructive Party Line right up to his death. Benedict XVI, aside from one or two acts of Christian charity, was himself a carrier of the disease he often condemned. And now this man.
I remember well the feelings of anxiety and portending doom that many if not most in the Church felt on those dark, final weeks of December 1969 when that ugly parody of the Mass was thrust upon us by a cruel hierarchy in Rome. We felt the ground crumbling under our feet. Some saw then how it would lead to the evil that we now swim in. I doubt, though, that anyone at the time could have imagined a Church filled with the stench of sodomy as it so obviously is today.
The evil men in the Church are doing the work of the Fallen Angel and driving us to despair. Hard as it is we must resist that.
We are surrounded. We are Catholics. Now we attack.
But while we fight we pray that God grants us His mercy and removes this man, hopefully by conversion, before he scandalizes Christ's little ones any further.
