DEAR FATHER ALEXANDER Minutella: Defend yourself. BUT I DO honoring the Roman Pontiff, WITHOUT DROPPING IN OLD TRAP OF MARTIN LUTHER

.

At the Pontiff nobody stops you in a respectful and filial report, on the basis of verified evidence, his moral and pastoral defects, after having first he bowed his head in front of his infallible teaching of truth. He 'so careful not to fall into the trap where Martin Luther fell with all heretics, ie the pretext of moral and pastoral defects, real and objective of the Pope, She might accuse him of heresy and reject his teaching office.

Deliver me from the hand of my enemies, by the close of my persecutors [Will 31,16]

Venerable Brother in Christ,

The priest Alessandro Palermo Minutella [to open the video click on the image]

we listened to the video of your defense against accusations of Cardinal Beniamino Stella, Prefect of the Congregation for the Clergy [cf. WHO]. This video was sent to us by several readers who asked our opinion on its contents. To those who have asked opinion and to you, we respond publicly: it seems to us that you've defended well.

.

Please take into account that direct you to this commentary are two priests, respectively: one Romagna, the other Tuscan-Roman. This is to help you understand, not worth misunderstandings, some of our examples as it ironic, paradoxical or if you want even grotesque. It calms the fact that you are in Sicily, son of a noble ancient people in an elegant irony is master.

.

This your story, rather than with the highest levels of the Holy See seems a bit’ have to do with a country priest of the thirties of the twentieth century, che per rifare il tetto alla chiesa, restaurare la canonica e costruire le sale parrocchiali, ha dovuto fare affidamento sulle generose donazioni di un ricco proprietario terriero della zona. Questo proprietario terriero ha però una figlia che si dà alla pazza gioia e che, as they say, salta allegramente di giovanotto in giovanotto. Tutti lo sanno, ma tutti tacciono, perché i paesani dipendono dal ricco possidente, che alla gran parte di loro dà lavoro, quindi sostentamento. L’allegra sgualdrina si reca dal Signor Arciprete per la confessione di precetto prima della Santa Pasqua, trovandosi dietro la grata del confessionale un uomo amabile, paterno, inclusive, oggi si direbbe: merciful. Thus, il buon sacerdote, quasi la conforta dicendole: «Eh, figlia mia, quando si è giovani, può anche capitare di commettere qualche piccolo errore, però s’intende: piccolo». La sgualdrina esce così assolta e persino confortata, lasciando il posto dinanzi alla grata del confessionale alla figlia di una serva del ricco e potente padre della precedente penitente, serva che lavora come lavandaia nella casa padronale, il marito lavora invece come contadino nei vasti terreni di questo proprietario. La giovane è fidanzata col figlio di altri contadini, un gran bravo ragazzo, il quale l’ha abbracciata e baciata. Ecco allora che il pio confessore si muta in quello che nel Codice Penale dell’epoca era il giudice istruttore, ed in tono severo, seguendo gli schemi del Manuale dei Confessori scritto nella seconda metà dell’Ottocento da Jean Baptiste Bouvier, Vescovo di Le Mans, comincia a chiedere quanto stretta sia stata abbracciata, ma soprattutto come siano stati scambiati i baci, perché se dati a bocca chiusa, erano peccati veniali, ma se la bocca fosse stata anche e solo leggermente socchiusa, in tal caso il peccato sarebbe stato mortale; e tra una amena descrizione e l’altra, il confessore intervalla il tutto rammentando alla penitente il fuoco dell’Inferno.

.

Noi non affermiamo che il tuo comportamento sia stato totalmente corretto ed esente da errori, come vedrai di seguito; ma dobbiamo in coscienza affermare che alla prova dei fatti, Cardinal Beniamino Stella, con una vita passata nel servizio diplomatico della Santa Sede — cosa questa che lo rende un grande pastore in cura d’anime ed un grande esperto conoscitore della vita pastorale e dell’apostolato del clero —, sorvolando sull’esercito di sgualdrine che oggi popolano la Chiesa, se l’è presa con gli abbracci ed i baci appassionati scambiati da una vergine col fidanzato.

.

Preso dall’impeto del sacro fuoco della passione, alcune cose sbagliate nel tempo le hai dette, followed by severe judgments that did not account to the end of the extreme and entirely new complexity of the unprecedented crisis historians that our poor Church is experiencing today. Nevertheless acting, before your Bishop, then the congregation for the clergy, oggettivamente manca un elemento che sta a fondamento di quel diritto chiamato di per sé ad amministrare la giustizia, to restore justice violated, so to do justice, namely: sense of proportion. Lo abbiamo detto poco prima con l’esempio della sgualdrina d’alto bordo che si dà a tutte le pazze gioie del caso, rapportata alla figlia della lavandaia e del contadino inquisita per un abbraccio ed un bacio appassionato scambiato col fidanzato.

.

È triste dover constatare di essere trattati in modo sproporzionato proprio da coloro che dovrebbero sostenerci e guidarci nella lotta. It is sad compulsion to resist brothers should be brothers in arms in the holy struggle and instead they are on the side of the enemy. It is sad that today the Church is persecuted by his own shepherds, while "our enemies laugh at us" [Will 80,7]. It is sad that there are pastors who prefer to come to terms with the world rather than following Christ.

.

And yet, dear Brother, you who know the history of the Church and the miseries of her children and your same miseries, do not you wonder, but seize the opportunity to forgive your enemies and live more intensely your sacred priesthood, in union with the divine victim on the altar of the Holy Sacrifice.

.

Today, Satan is putting to the test the Supreme Pastor of the Church. It is looking like wheat [LC 22, 31], Therefore God allows that he stagger under the blows, is sensitive to the lure, the blandishments and the attractions of the world; It allows that the Devil wickedly take advantage of its weaknesses, it is surrounded by friends as Christ on the Cross, but by "a pack of dogs" [Will 22,17], not to be trusted and competent employees, but Judases. Therefore orccorre very, as he often invites us to do, pray for him. certainly it must unravel the evil plots, in the Church, ordendo are the children of the devil against the Pope and against the Bride of Christ. If that's what you're doing is fine, indeed, as you may have noticed, for years we also do our Fathers de The island of Patmos. But it is imperative that you do a clear profession of fidelity to the Roman Pontiff, because your enemies, many of which are also dangerous enemies of the Church - the ones who are false friends and false representatives of the Roman Pontiff -, They would have you go as an enemy.

.

Oppose and with all your strength to this diabolical maneuver, thunders with mighty voice your solid certainty to recognize the Pope Francis I, the Vicar of Christ and the Master of faith, because only then will be able to cut their serpentine tongue.

.

On the day of our priestly ordination, consacrati sacerdoti in eterno attraverso questo Sacramento di grazia, al Vescovo ordinante in comunione col Vescovo di Roma ― quindi di fatto, come sai, al Vescovo di Roma ― nessuno di noi ha promesso che avrebbe stimato il Vescovo ordinante ed il Romano Pontefice, o che avrebbe professato profonda e incondizionata simpatia per lui. Tutti noi abbiamo promesso devozione filiale e obbedienza, nessuno ha promesso che avrebbe stimato incondizionatamente il Romano Pontefice; e non ci risulta che nel corso degli ultimi quattro anni sia stato cambiato il rito del Sacramento dell’Ordine Sacro. Tu puoi anche non nutrire stima, nei riguardi del Pontefice regnante. E se la triste cosa può confortarti sappi che a non stimarlo, non sei l’unico. But if the Roman Pontiff the estimate is not due, because if you want in that case if the must deserve, obedience and faithfulness, that it is instead due, because gliel'abbiamo solemnly promise. Therefore, even if the man Jorge Mario Bergoglio was also one of the worst popes ever in the history of the Church, more so we must remain firm in the faith, aware that, if we undermine the rock of Peter [cf. Mt 13, 16-20], throughout the entire building would collapse.

.

At the Roman Pontiff, nobody stops you in a respectful and filial report, on the basis of verified evidence, his moral and pastoral defects, after having first he bowed his head in front of his infallible teaching of truth. He 'so careful not to fall into the trap where Martin Luther fell with all heretics, ie the pretext of moral and pastoral defects, real and objective of the Pope, She might accuse him of heresy and reject his teaching office.

.

Vice versa, current and flatterers fans the Roman Pontiff, who do not believe at all papal infallibility nor immutability of truth - including numerous theologians, bishops and cardinals - they have the impudence to present themselves as its interpreters, representatives and defenders, and taking advantage of his negligence in suppressing heresy, or its objective and now proven philosophical training deficiencies, historic doctrinal and theological, They have successfully worldly crowds, between the bewilderment of true Catholics, the reigning Pontiff as a modernist. You shy away, rightly, this diabolical hypocrisy, But look well from the first pitfall: ask the Roman Pontiff the same charges which once gave him Luther.

.

The central problem of the Church today - and you've caught -, It is how to judge the reigning Pope and understand what attitude to take towards him. In this regard,, the first thing to keep in mind is, as we have said, that the Holy Father Francis, as all his predecessor, It is infallible teacher of the faith. Its human worthlessness - which unfortunately is a painful fact -, concern only his moral conduct and the government of the Church. While you rather bluntly accuses him of spreading heresy. We highly recommend you to change opinion and attitude and get into a different line of thought: the reigning pontiff is negligent in suppressing heresy. And you know that this is not a semantic game: an account, indeed, It is to spread the heresy, an account, instead, not suppress and not to condemn the heresy. some, before these our statements, They have replicated that heresy, spread it or suppress it, is the same thing. We are sorry, but it is not, What soon explained with a simple example: from the Holy Gospel and the Apostolic Letters, we can also derive the invitation to try to be heroes, but nowhere in these scriptures it is stated the obligation to be heroes. anything, the Blessed Apostle Paul is very clear in stating:

.

"Accept among you who is weak in faith, without discussing this hesitation. One believes he can eat anything, the other, that is weak, eats only vegetables. He who eats not despise those who do not eat; those who do not eat, don't misjudge who eats, for God has welcomed him " [RM 14, 1-3].

.

Do you also remember that the Gospel and dogma It is clear that a Roman Pontiff can not be, form, intentionally and voluntarily heretic, because that would suppose that Christ lied when he promised to Peter his assistance. Instead it can happen - and in fact happened - that a Roman Pontiff, materially, temporarily and accidentally fall into heresy, because, or deceived, as in the case of Honorius I in the seventh century, or because they threatened, as in the case of Liberius in the fourth century, or recklessly, as John XXII in the fourteenth century, or to mental weakness or perhaps even for some mental disorder; What it does not yet happened in the history of the papacy, but it could also happen.

.

As for the reigning Pontiff, accusations that unfortunately you can ask him for a long time we believe that the following:

.

  1. ambiguities of language;
  1. gross negligence in defending the sound doctrine;
  1. Reviews praise against heretics;
  1. use of inadequate staff and very dangerous;
  1. tolerate being praised by the modernists as a modernist without in any way disprove such and dangerous laudatori.

.

If the modernists and rage if they are the masters, se i non modernisti sono perseguitati e se il Romano Pontefice è attorniato da collaboratori e da amici eretici, in parte ciò è dovuto al loro potere ed alla loro astuzia, ma soprattutto è dovuto alla sua disonestà ed al suo attaccamento al successo e al potere mondano. Sono questi, in our opinion, i punti sui quali devi battere.

.

A noi è purtroppo chiaro in qual modo il Pontefice regnante si sia è cacciato in un terribile guaio, dal quale oggi non riesce a venir fuori, trovandosi infine nella condizione di non poter rispondere dicendo in modo chiaro né si né no. Allora è nostro dovere suggerirgli, come recita il titolo di un romanzo di Ignazio Silone, one Uscita di sicurezza, altrimenti potrebbe rischiare di andare all’Inferno trascinandone molti dietro con sé. E questa uscita di sicurezza è la Beata Vergine Maria Madre della Chiesa, della quale egli si dice devoto.

.

Vorremmo quindi suggerirti alcuni spunti per la tua linea di difesa e qualche consiglio per la tua azione.

.

First point. Come tu stesso hai riferito al Cardinale Beniamino Stella che ti accusa di aver provocato confusione e smarrimento nella Chiesa, di creare sconcerto, di rompere la comunione ecclesiale e di parlare contro il Pontefice regnante; tutte queste accuse, per essere valide, andrebbero spiegate e motivate. Indeed, se manca la spiegazione delle accuse, esse sono nulle, in quanto mancanti di significato. Siccome si tratta di figure in autorità che pare vogliano imporsi con la forza ― e non solo nel tuo caso ―, tu devi confutarle con la logica o col diritto canonico. Se poi non ascoltano, dovranno renderne conto a Dio ed al suo Popolo Santo. Pertanto devi chiarire in particolare:

.

  1. Quali sono i due termini della confusion? Si confonde A con B. Che cosa è che confondi? Qual è A e quale è B? Therefore, in che cosa consiste la confusione?
  2. Smarrimento? Che cosa o chi hai fatto smarrire, come e a chi? Che prove hanno?
  3. Hai creato sconcerto? Hai scandalizzato, turbato o sconvolto i buoni princìpi e la pace dei fedeli? Quali? As?
  4. Hai rotto la comunione ecclesiale? Sei stato ribelle alla Chiesa? Sei scismatico? What do you mean?
  5. Hai parlato contro il Pontefice regnante? Lo hai insultato? Con quali insulti? Lo hai diffamato? Hai respinto o falsificato il suo magistero? Which one? Hai disprezzato la sua autorità? In che cosa?

.

Perché le accuse siano sensate e valide, devono essere precise, motivated and demonstrated on the basis of canon law and the doctrine of faith or about proved actions you performed in the exercise of your ministry or some propositions to you incurred, otherwise it is slander and defamation, or simply arrogant acts of free will in defiance to all the basic criteria of Church law.

.

The generic accusation does not hit the target and the accused was unharmed. The unfounded accusation is false and unjust accusation: lack of evidence. And again the accused remains innocent. In this case the accusation is nothing: To subvert the accused and backfires sull'accusatore, which it is required to repair and to restore the good name taken from the accused.

.

Second point. In our opinion, più che di «neochiesa» o di «falsa Chiesa», faresti bene parlare di ”modernisti”, perché di ciò esattamente si tratta. È roba vecchia, non sono novità ― altrimenti porti davvero acqua al loro mulino ―, anche se loro si ritengono i profeti dello Spirito Santo, la punta avanzata della Chiesa, per esempio i seguaci di Karl Rahner, Walter Kasper, Gianfranco Ravasi, Frei Betto, Enzo Bianchi, Jacques Dupuis, Vito Mancuso, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Leonard Boff o Edward Schillebeeckx. Indeed, benché essi abbiano un concetto falso di Chiesa ― e proprio per questo, non costituiscono affatto una Chiesa, ma un gruppo di potere o sètta ereticale all’interno della Chiesa che sta rovinando la Chiesa ―, essi sì, che sono meritevoli di essere scomunicati. Chiamandoli “modernisti”[1], li qualificheresti con maggior precisione ed esattezza storica, in such a way as to make them more recognizable; in tal modo, your criticism, It would be more targeted and effective. In other passages you call them with the right name, because they are actually "slaves of the modern world", that does not light up or correct, as they should, in the light of the Gospel, but "the modern world is their god, which sacrifice the Gospel ".

.

third point. It is necessary for you to distinguish the reigning Pope his doctrinal authority and magisterial from his pastoral activity of the Church and his government. In the first field, he can do no wrong. If anything needs to be done some of his benevolent interpretation statements, because actually it happens that they are ambiguous: They may leave or be subject to an orthodox sense or in a sense unorthodox. For example, certain statements in Chapter VIII of 'The joy of love seem influenced or historicism or ethics of the situation, but at a closer look you may realize that they are doctrinally correct, although ambiguous. If anything, the fact that you can do to the reigning Pope is the lack of clarity about whether the divorced and remarried may or may not, in certain cases, be admitted to the Sacraments.

.

the reigning Pontiff Error It is surely to shirk its responsibility, ie to interpellations, if only to reject them, especially considering ch'esse go up more and more - some very influential - by the People of God, leaving to others the more or less authoritative or questionable answers, or allow questions put to him meet the modernists spreading false interpretations, What this extreme gravity. In doing so he gives the impression of being evasive or not to be master of matter he treated, or in other words that brutally: to be ignorant. However, keep in mind - as we have amply demonstrated over the past two years The Island of Patmos - which in itself the Supreme Pontiff, under the power of the keys, It has the power to change the existing discipline concerning the question of granting the sacraments to divorced and remarried in special cases. What you quite rightly point out, It is that he has not yet ruled on whether grants or does not grant permission. So for now it's current legislation, that is the one contained in the n. 84 of Family company the Holy Father Giovanni Paolo II.

.

Fourth. Instead, it is legitimate to point out to the reigning Pontiff some of his serious moral and pastoral errors, for example, he:

.

  1. Talk of Christ, but he does not remember and neglects his office as Vicar of Christ;
  2. He speaks of confidence in God, but he does not speak of the fear of God;
  3. about faith, but it does not make clear that faith is intellectual knowledge of the truth and that only in the Catholic Church is the fullness of truth;
  4. He speaks the truth of faith, but he does not speak of the immutability of dogma;
  5. He speaks of sin, but he never speaks of the sin of heresy;
  6. He speaks of faith and does not speak of reason;
  7. He speaks of charity, but it does not make clear that the charity depends on the truth;
  8. He speaks of love of neighbor, but he does not speak of the higher love of God;
  9. He speaks of the duty of fraternal charity, but he never talks about the good works;
  10. He speaks of the duty to do the will of God, but no one ever says that the natural moral law is immutable;
  11. excommunicated the mobsters, but not the excommunication modernists;
  12. condemns abortion, but it is soft on the abortionists;
  13. exalts marriage, but does not reproach the adulterous couples;
  14. He speaks of adulterous couples, but he says they must stop their relationship;
  15. about families wounds, but he does not speak of feritrici and scandalous families;
  16. He speaks of the respect due to homosexuals, but condemns the sin of sodomy;
  17. He says that all are called to be children of God, but he says that only those who believe in Christ and in the grace is God's son;
  18. He speaks of salvation, but he does not speak of the beatific vision;
  19. He speaks of sin, but he says he does lose grace;
  20. He speaks of sin, but he says he deserves the punishment;
  21. He speaks of nature as it was only intended to be used by man and neglects to mention the hostility of the punitive nature of sin;
  22. He speaks of human dignity, but it does not explain how and why it is corrupted by original sin, hence the necessity of the law, order legal and judicial, dell’ascetica, the discipline and the right coercion;
  23. He speaks of Baptism, but it says that the original offense was a historical fact and that the original sin is transmitted by generation;
  24. He speaks of the Eucharist, but he does not speak of transubstantiation;
  25. talks about the Priesthood, but he does not say which involves the offering of sacrifice;
  26. It recommended that the confessional is not a "torture chamber", but remember that there are certain conditions in which the faithful can not be absolved;
  27. He speaks of episcopal collegiality, but it discloses the bishops who disobey the Pope or the Magisterium of the Church;
  28. He speaks of the saints in heaven and neglect to mention Hell Damned;
  29. He speaks of welcoming Church, but he does not speak of the Church Militant;
  30. He says the Church is open to all, but he says that should excommunicate rebels, without confusing them with the prophets;
  31. He speaks of persecution in the world, but he does not speak of intra-ecclesial persecution;
  32. deplores the terrorists, but he says that many of them are inspired by the Koran;
  33. dice che la Chiesa è al servizio del mondo, ma non dice che la Chiesa non è serva del mondo e che trascende il mondo;
  34. parla del dialogo col mondo, ma non parla dello scontro e della vittoria sul mondo;
  35. parla della diversità delle religioni, ma trascura di parlare del primato del Cristianesimo sulle altre religioni;
  36. parla della conversione, ma non dice che i non-credenti e gli eretici si devono convertire;
  37. dice che occorre rispettare l’altro, ma non dice che occorre guardarsi dagli eretici;
  38. dice che dobbiamo ascoltare l’altro, ma non dice che dobbiamo correggere e convertire gli increduli e i non-credenti;
  39. parla del dovere di soccorrere i sofferenti, ma trascura di parlare del valore espiativo e soddisfattorio della sofferenza;
  40. dice che Dio è misericordioso con i pentiti, ma trascura di parlare del castigo dei malvagi;
  41. parla delle opere della misericordia materiale, ma non della maggiore importanza di quelle della misericordia spirituale;
  42. condemns violence, ma non parla del giusto uso della forza;
  43. condanna la guerra ingiusta, lasciando sottintendere che per lui ogni guerra è ingiusta, perché ogni guerra è motivata solo da interessi economici o di potere, e non può essere fatta in nome di Dio o per volere divino;
  44. predica la misericordia per gli oppressi, ma non dice che gli oppressori andranno all’Inferno.

.

Dear Brother, ti siamo vicini nella tua prova, ma ti preghiamo proprio per questo di interrogarti se per caso non hai dato svariate occasioni alla tempesta che si è scatenata contro di te e su di te.

.

Per quanto sia facile a dirsi e più difficile invece a farsi, we urge you to bear in peace, united to Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary, as we are sure you'll be doing, and providing for the good of your souls and your sufferings. Willing to Church you can continue to perform your priestly mission, waiting for justice to be done. So you can put a new and rich fruit of the mind and heart the gifts God has given you.

.

Let us remember each other in prayer.

NOTE

[1] The modernists today, for those who know the history of heresies, They are anything but modern, because they are the exhumation, with a new makeup and a suitable deodorant, Modernism condemned by the Holy Pontiff Pius X. They love to cover herself with the honest adjective "progressive", but in fact they are the forgers of the genuine ecclesial progress.
