Yesterday was a Feria, so if you went to Mass you might have heard the Mass of the Fourth Sunday of Easter again. I mention this for the Epistle:
Lesson from the letter of St. James the Apostle
Dearly beloved: Every best gift, and every perfect gift, is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no change, nor shadow of alteration….
No change nor shadow of alteration.
I am reminded of the Gloria Patri: as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be….
Fr. Z gives a good, albeit flawed in base premise, treatment to Antipope Bergoglio’s latest verbal skywriting of his obvious status as ‘not the Pope, in fact, not even Catholic’, which I link to instead of the Breitbart piece.
Note, especially, the despair and confusion amongst the faithful in Fr. Z’s commbox.
What part of “the Church must abandon tradition and renounce order and clarity” are we not getting here, folks? I’m thinking that having “Antipope and likely False Prophet Forerunner of the Antichrist“ tattooed across his forehead would actually be a MORE SUBTLE move for Bergoglio at this point.
But, hey, if Grand Master Luthermason Walter Kasper, orgy presider Coccopalmerio, pimpdaddy Maradiaga, Donna Wuerl and the rest of the apostate sodomite brain trust that is the College of Cardinals assure us that everything is on the up-and-up, and Bergoglio is totes da Pope, that’s INFALLIBLE DOGMA, stupid schismatic!
Canon 359 be damned!
The Good Shepherd Discourse is clearly one of those “traditions” that “must be abandoned.” Right along with “common sense”, “logic”, and “objective, visible reality.”
Old and busted: “papolatry”.
New hotness: CARDINALATRY.
I will conclude by renewing my challenge: say the following without laughing out loud: “THE CATHOLIC CHURCH AND THE ANTI-CHURCH CURRENTLY CO-EXIST IN THE SAME SACRAMENTAL, LITURGICAL AND JURIDICAL SPACE, and Jorge Bergoglio is the head of the True Church, opposing the anti-church.”
