From a warrior of the faith to a straw man to serve as a useful idiot, This is the difference between Gerhard Ludwig Müller and Luis Ladaria Ferrer 10 May 201812 May 2018 isoladipatmos - Church News - BE A WARRIOR OF FAITH TO A STRAW MAN serve as useful IDIOT, THIS IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GERHARD LUDWIG MULLER AND LUIS FRANCISCO Ladaria FERRER . Can a man loyal and faithful servant to invite the Roman Pontiff not to give a wrong answer? Yes, because the man faithful and loyal servant is above all one who invites the Roman Pontiff not to give a wrong answer, avoiding to be both his notary is his spokesman error, instead it is the supreme custodian and administrator of the Sacraments, not the master of the Sacraments. Author Ariel S. Levi Gualdo . . PDF format Print article . . St. Thomas Aquinas in the grip of an apoplectic stroke start Before delving into the theme it is necessary to clarify two expressions of the Italian language that are neither insulting nor outrageous, It is two technical terms used herein for what they really mean, not for the incorrect meaning which some might attribute, accusing me, if anything, to have insulted the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. S. AND. Mons. Luis Francisco Ladaria Ferrer. . The term "straw man", born in socio-economic sphere, They are indicated those particular figures used by a single person or by groups of people for their weakness malleable. The straw man acts as nominee, if necessary, respond in person to those who put forth, but deciding what to do behind him. And if things turn out badly, to pay will be the straw man, also said prestanome. A typical case that of commercial companies in which the owner had become a figurehead or nominee. In the event of bankruptcy or bankruptcy, Who will answer before the law will be the figurehead or nominee, Unless it is not discovered and identified - which is not easy -, the actual or effective managers and financial beneficiaries. . The term "useful idiot", born in strictly political context at the beginning of the Cold War between the West and the Soviet Union, They would show the members of the Communist Parties of Europe, strong supporters of the Stalinist regime and indomitable giustificatori. The useful idiots were the faithful allies of the Soviet regime and by the thought of being rewarded with equal fidelity, whereas they were only exploited at the level of propaganda, especially in Western countries deny the cruelties of the Stalinist regime, they promoted and defined as "Paradise of the Proletarian People". . The straw man and the useful idiot They can be both in good and in bad faith. They are generally subject in good faith when they finish used without their knowledge by people who exploit their naivete and incompetence objective without them being aware of them; are subject in bad faith when, although aware of lending as such, accept to run serious risks by virtue of personal gain in any case be able to derive both from their role is the situation in which they accepted consciously being put. . Having clarified the meaning of words, It requires further clarification before we get into the theme: none of us can know if S.It is. Mons. Luis Francisco Ladaria Ferrer is in bad faith, on the contrary, I want to give good its total good faith. If, however, the Prefect is really in good faith, in which case we would find ourselves faced with a perfect incompetent than his own voice - and risk being assigned to the story with a bad reputation theological -, has shown in the facts of not having clear what the doctrine of the faith, in particular the ecclesiology, dogmatic sacramental and canonical law. . The Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith recently he presided over a meeting with a delegation of the German Bishops [cf. WHO], occurred following a request for clarification from seven members of the Episcopal Conference, who wondered whether the episcopate of a country could decide on a matter as delicate as the granting of the Holy Eucharistic communion to Protestants united in marriage with a Catholic spouse [see my recent article on the subject, WHO]. S. AND. Mons. Luis Francisco Ladaria Ferrer gave a shocking answer on behalf of the Pope Francis I: . "During the interview, held in German, Ladaria the archbishop explained that Pope Francis appreciates the ecumenical commitment of the German bishops and asks them to find, in a spirit of ecclesial communion, possibly a unanimous result. In the interview we were discussed various points of view: for example the relationship of the question with faith and pastoral care, its relevance to the universal Church and its legal dimension. The Archbishop Ladaria inform the Holy Father about the content of the conversation. The meeting took place in a cordial and fraternal " [cf. WHO, WHO]. . Faced with this response, in which, in essence, the Supreme Pontiff has replicated "find a solution unanimous among you", it becomes necessary to move the straw man and profit idiot to precise description of what faithfulness and who can be truly loyal and faithful man servant of the Church and of the Successor of the blessed Peter Prince of the Apostles. . A faithful man and faithful servant, It is neither a notary ratification, nor a spokesman that aseptically shows what has been commanded to bring, thereby fulfilling his office. A faithful man and faithful servant is far: the one who says to Lord what is right and what is wrong with that. Therefore, aware that the Bishops of Germany have dared to discuss what precisely was not debated, trying to push through a horrible mistake that touches the heart of the basic element of Church unity, which is the Holy Eucharist, here is the real man faithful and loyal servant, in his role as Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, he should have said to the Roman Pontiff: "Holiness, This is wrong. And I, instructed by you as Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, I beg you not to give an answer like, because what the Bishops of Germany have attempted to propose is a real attack on the Most Holy Eucharist and the unity of the Church. Moreover it is an error that can not be passed as a legitimate majority, because no majority that put together can compromise the Sacrament of grace which underpins the very unity of the Church ". . So he should have answered the Prefect, If even before the ecclesiology, dogmatic sacramental and canonical law, he simply knew the Catechism of the Catholic Church [cf. n. 1400, text WHO]. And if, as we all imagine, in addition to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, he also knows the ecclesiology, dogmatic sacramental and canonical law, because, he pretended not to know? . Can a man loyal and faithful servant invite the Roman Pontiff not to give a wrong answer? Yes, because the man faithful and loyal servant is above all one who invites the Roman Pontiff not to give a wrong answer, avoiding to be both his notary is his spokesman error, instead it is the supreme custodian and administrator of the Sacraments, not the master of the Sacraments. The sacraments were given by Christ in custody to the Church so that she might administer them, because neither the Church nor its Supreme Head are masters of the substance of the Sacraments, that are not available goods. And the custody of the Discipline of the Sacraments, It can not be left to the decisions of some fierce majority. . I could argue: and obedience? First, remember the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith that the Holy Bishop Ambrose Doctor of the Church, once she sent through a apocrisarius this ambasceria to the Roman Pontiff: . "Tell the Pope for me, after Jesus, there he. And that the end that God has given us, We will use it not only to put on a hat ". . So let's recap: the two parties in question, the Pope and the Prefect, are both two Jesuits. Well, I'm wrong or right, the Jesuits are focusing on the "theology" of the so-called "primacy of conscience"? Now, if this much-vaunted "primacy" is really such, however not a record as the lights intermittently Christmas tree, the good Prefect would have to precede just what the best of Jesuitism calls the "primacy of conscience", if the head that he was given not only serves to put a hat on. In a different way, Who is writing, being in this situation, instead of talking about the "primacy of conscience" would rather talk about imperative of conscience, as such closely linked to the deposit of the Catholic faith, regardless of the mode of the moment or the more or less aggressive majorities, but above all more or less Catholic; place either the Roman Pontiff or the Prefect from him in charge of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith they are above the revealed truth. . Back when authority and the concept of authority does not joking, Cardinal Eugenio Pacelli, seen the devastating results produced by retaliation by the Nazis after that in March 1937 It was published the encyclical care with burning Pius XI [cf. text WHO], on which he worked just the big hand of the then Secretary of State Eugenio Pacelli, the Pope time the ruling was decided to issue a solemn document repudiation of Nazism. Cardinal Eugenio Pacelli, former apostolic nuncio first in Bavaria then in Berlin, large and deep knowledge of Germany and viewer for years in that country of birth and the rise of Nazism, He pointed out that after the promulgation of the encyclical were retaliation was heavy both to Jews and towards German Catholics. He then made a solemn document that repudiation would not braked Nazi barbarism, but it ballooned acts of retaliation. When the Supreme Pontiff insisted that act it would have been in his opinion needed, Secretary of State, showing in this sense that the head should be used not only to put on a hat, replied: "Holiness, You if you deem it appropriate, Please publish this document after accepting my resignation office Secretary of State '. . The Supreme Pontiff Pius XI was not the Pope Francis I, evidence that is something next to him had put the Cardinal Eugenio Pacelli and many other men of great value; the ones who have to urge the necessary Lord not to commit blunders, always avoid speaking out of turn and especially to fall into omissive miss assumptions of responsibility. . Even the Pope Francis I, as a precious legacy left to him by his Venerable Predecessor Benedict XVI had at his side a valuable and loyal man, Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller, that at the end of its first five years, however, he has decided to "liquidate" by giving notice to the person concerned 'in a conversation lasting less than a minute ", as reported by answering the direct question an interviewer [cf. WHO]. And today, the Roman Curia, including the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, move monkeys, dancers and dwarfs. Even some trippone teddy will not move, for example S.It is. Mons. Giacomo Morandi, Archbishop Secretary of this delicate ministry, whose appointment "is a bit 'the key to understanding certain maneuvers", as always says to another interviewer Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller [cf. WHO]. And the current Archbishop Secretary, responsible to supervise the orthodoxy of the doctrine, rightly invites, perhaps not least from personal experience - as all of us children of Adam are sinners, including especially the writer -, to "Do not be experts in the other's sin" [cf. WHO]. For it is better that some sins - I might add -, remain locked in the closets of the episcopal curiae, and finally made to disappear before or immediately after the episcopal ordination of the sinner, always insisting that all of us, including bishops and curial, we are children of Adam are born with the stain of original sin. . If during this painful affair we want to make an ecclesiological analysis, we must first emphasize the fact that the only voices that were heard clearly, strong and courageous, They spoke from countries that we never expected; these are countries where secularism, the haemorrhaging of faithful from the Catholic Church and the progressive de-Christianization in late stage, They are bringing those particular Churches, if not to the complete extinction, surely to fall soon to a tiny and small minority of believers. . from Germany, in which long since it occurred a schism of the fact that should only be formalized, You were heard the voices of seven bishops, including Cardinal Rainer Maria Woelki, elected to the seat Archbishop of Cologne subway and elevated to cardinal by the Pope Francis I. From Holland, already home to the controversial Dutch Catechism he did bleed Blessed Pope Paul VI as the crown of thorns on the head of Christ, where for years the churches are decommissioned and sold to dozens, interior furnishings liquidated companies to antique or junk, It has instead raised the voice of Cardinal Willem Jacobus Eijk, Archbishop of Utrecht and primate of Holland, created cardinal in 2012 Venerable by Pope Benedict XVI. . Like other media, also we have the full text of the letter of the primate of Holland in the true Italian translation [see WHO]. . These facts lead us to ask: is that perhaps, by divine paradox, the defense of faith and the future rebirth of the same faith, start precisely from those countries which were triggered in time the most dangerous and destructive mechanisms of de-construction of dogma and of the truths of faith revealed? . Unfortunately we can not fail to give a salutary slap the more fearful of the world episcopate, which is what was the catholic Italy. And this salutary slap deserves to be bestowed with the representation of two paradigms that sum up the substance and form of our episcopate: Prince of Machiavelli and The Leopard Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa. . In Italy we 223 diocese [cf. WHO] for a total number of Bishops, between Diocesan Ordinaries and auxiliary Bishops, of about 250 membership. Has anyone even heard a weak voice? And the voices we never hear the sound, why the bishops of Italy, between machiavellism and gattopardismo, reflects in every way the political styles of our country; now able to stand in national elections with a party, and the next election with the opposite party, then move on to another party yet between a government and the other. Italian politicians are capable, the day after the election, to abandon the deployment in which they were elected to pass in the mixed group. They are able to be born and Democrats to end two decades after candidates in the party of the Democratic Left. The identical they are made our Italian Bishops, now it is vying with each other to who shoots the biggest of migrants and refugees, all of them with the smell of sheep on him and with the existential outskirts always ready on the mouth. But if tomorrow the wind should change, the first that would arise with a precious jeweled miter on his head and seven meters magna hood would be the very people who were brought before the episcopate, then celebrated the release of the Italian left Radical chic as a "street priest" and "suburban priests'. . For some time we realized that the future rebirth of the Church will never from this pleasant country of Pulcinella and none of its owners 223 Diocese. We have already had clear anticipation these days with the stance of seven bishops of Germany and with the precise point, decisive and courageous Primate of Holland. And while this happens, our bishops complain in private in the living rooms, but keeping silent "prudently" in public, always waiting for better times and paid the penalty on the skin and on the courage of others, then jump on the bandwagon of the new winner with such a lack of dignity which never would reach even the dear and good women whores. They will jump on the bandwagon wearing, as the case may, then according to convenience, or a synthetic cheesy chasuble of the few euro value to suck even the flea market, or wear the hood magna making escort by two caudatari in nineteenth century livery. . Yes, Perhaps the defense and rebirth will share their where half a century ago came to life destruction, while the sons of Machiavelli and await Gattopardo "cautious" the wind change and flag, to be able to sing with the same intensity Red flag [cf. WHO] as White flower [cf. WHO], according to what they will return to their better, the important thing is to keep going, but most never become "experts of other people's sins" … . the Island of Patmos, 9 May 2018 . . . . «You will know the truth and the truth will set you free» [GV 8,32], but bring, spread and defend the truth not only of risks but also the costs.
