"CHURCH OPEN» (IV episode) - TOUCHING THE BEGGING THE MAYOR OF VENICE IN SANTA MARIA OF HEALTH. HOPE THAT NO ONE TOWARDS THE URLI outrage “DOGMA” THE SECULAR STATE …

.

We offer our readers this third precious videos of our esteemed brother John Zanchi, priest of the Diocese of Arezzo, so that it can also serve as an effective and wise antidote to all those who unfortunately, at this time of extraordinary crisis and emergency, They have nothing better to do than argue, often in harsh and aggressive tone, against decisions taken by our bishops for safety reasons to protect public health: suspend the sacred celebrations and in many cases close the churches. Recall that the Church, during crises and emergencies, It has never been saved by the controversy of those who stand for all time the most faithful among the faithful or to the purest of the pure, but the unit. Someone has written these days that "the bishops are committing suicide the Italian Church". Unfortunately he did not understand anything of the essence of the Catholic faith: The Church “If suicide” attacking the bishops, instead follow them and support them in a moment of so severe test.

Welcome to the fourth installment of Open Church!

In these difficult days Our churches in Italy, made of stones and bricks remain open, as a sign of the Church that remains present and active in the midst of our people (cf Tuscan Episcopal Conference, 14 March 2020); the churches remain open even if there are held public celebrations. In one of these churches open there was a very special prayer, of which we now speak.

.

The Basilica of St. Mary of Health in Venice It was built by the government and people of Venice as a fulfillment of the vow made to the Madonna for the cessation of the plague of 1630; finished the epidemic to the Holy Virgin intervention, Venetians erected with great effort a magnificent monument of spirituality and art, where constantly thank God for the renewed health.

.

The 13 last March the Mayor of Venice, Luigi Brugnaro, He has officially gone to the Church of Health to entrust her to the City of the Madonna protection in this time of epidemic, reciting the prayer composed by the Patriarch of Venice [ see video WHO].

.

The Mayor of Venice He has made a significant gesture and true. He teaches us the Catechism of the Catholic Church:

.

Number 1884: "God has not willed to reserve to himself all exercise of all powers. He entrusts to every creature the functions it is able to exercise, according to their ability of his nature. This mode of governance ought to be followed in social life. The way God acts in governing the world, which testifies to a very deep respect for human freedom, It should inspire the wisdom of those who govern human communities. They should behave as ministers of divine providence ".

.

Number 2244: «Every institution is inspired, implicitly, a vision of man and his destiny, hence their judgment criteria, its hierarchy of values, its line of conduct. In most companies the institutions refer to a certain preeminence of man over things. Only the divinely revealed religion has clearly recognized in God, Creator and Redeemer, the origin and destiny. The Church invites political authorities to measure their judgments and their decisions against this inspired truth about God and man ".

.

Officially On his way to pray in St. Mary of Health the Mayor of Venice has put into practice the truths just mentioned and has been shown to have at heart the common good of his countrymen. The Catechism of the Catholic Church in fact also remembers another very important truth:

.

Number 2244: «Companies that ignore this inspiration or reject it in the name of their independence in relation to God, They are driven to seek in themselves or to borrow from an ideology their references and their end and, not tolerate the affirmation of an objective criterion of good and evil, arrogate to themselves about man and his destiny absolute power, explicit or admitted, As history demonstrates (cf. John Paul II, Became. enc. Centesimus annus, 45; 46)».

.

In this time the spread of a microscopic virus It has made it clear that the claim of the men of sufficient unto themselves apart from God is false. A society that denies God inevitably becomes tyrannical and finds himself alone in the face of disasters, unable to promote and safeguard the true good of the men who compose it. Well so he did the Mayor of Venice to seek God's help in these necessities.

.

In Italy there is no shortage policies declare themselves Catholic authorities; we expect that in the exercise of their functions are consistent with the Christian faith they profess, making gestures similar to those of the Mayor of Venice, Luigi Brugnaro. The real gesture he made in the fulfillment of his high office reminds all of us to practice 2 other teachings Catechism of the Catholic Church.

.

Number 1900: "The duty of obedience requires all to bestow authority honors that are due to it and to surround respect and, as it is deserved, of gratitude and benevolence the people who hold office ".

.

Number 2240: «The Apostle exhorts us to raise thanksgiving "and prayers for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and dignity " (1TM 2, 2).

.

For this intention Catholics pray solemnly every Good Friday, but especially at this very difficult time it is essential to beg the Lord to enlighten, guide and support public authorities, so they can act quickly and successfully for the good of us all. In open churches, and those of stone and brick, both domestic ones that are our homes do not miss this prayer.

A resent tomorrow for a new episode Church Open.

One thought on ""Open Church" (IV episode) - The touching supplication Mayor of Venice Santa Maria della Salute. In the hope that no one screams outrage toward the “dogma” the secular state …

  1. Non è l’unico caso: anche due sindaci pugliesi e il sindaco di Siena hanno fatto lo stesso. Il sindaco di Cagliari e il presidente della Regione Sardegna si sono rivolti pubblicamente al santo patrono Efisio.
    Di sicuro non lo faranno mai Mattarella, Prodi e compagnia bella.
    Qui un commento del tipico cattedraticocattolico adultofiloprodiano:

    Don Ariel, what do you think? Chiedo sul serio, non è una domanda retorica.
