Ariel Father to Father John: "If I were a member of the Italian Episcopal Conference, I would not hesitate to snatch the hand fiasco, and to send him to a rehabilitation center for alcoholics anonymous, until during one of the group sessions will not say: “Hello to all, My name Nunzio, and is a week that I do not drink more”». .

No prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, since it does not by human will, but moved by the Holy Spirit men spoke from God [The Pt, 1,20-21] Whoever listens to you, hears me [LC 10,16] . . the steamship Titanic towards’iceberg Numerous readers They have pestered the letters to ask lights on statements made by S.It is. Mons. Nunzio Galantine, General Secretary of C.E.I, at a symposium held at the Pontifical Lateran University 18-19 October [cf. WHO]. First of all, we can say that the Lateran may be renamed Luteranense, after the number two of the Italian Bishops' Conference he said that Luther's "reform" was a "gift of the Holy Spirit" … . … it happened that an Italian bishop, a close relationship with the Father Ariel S. Levi Gualdo, in a moment of despair asked him a, before this externalization, the question in private: "But in short, in front of that kind of thing, what can we do?». The respondent stated: "And Your Excellency's question to me? I am not a member of the Italian Episcopal Conference, while Your Excellency, Yes. Therefore, I can tell you is that if I were a member of the Italian Episcopal Conference, I would not hesitate to snatch the hand fiasco, and to send him to a rehabilitation center for alcoholics anonymous, until during one of the group sessions will not say: “Hello to all, My name Nunzio, and is a week that I do not drink more”». . the collision of the Titanic with the’iceberg … From jokes, We then moved on to serious matters, going to see the guides on clinical specialties, verifying that there are more branches in psychiatry: child psychiatry, adolescent and adult psychiatry, Psichiatria GERIATRICA, Advisory-relational psychiatry, psychiatry of addictions. We have not found, because at the moment there, Episcopal psychiatry, but some cases could be included in the psychiatry of addictions, why certain individuals now depend on the follies they say, profess and spread. . Having stated the university of the Roman Pontiff, such is the Lateranense, that the "reform of Luther" was a "gift of the Holy Spirit", by S.It is. Mons. Nunzio Galantine, more than an indiscretion, it was a blasphemy. And with that we clarify well: Luther against the decrees of the Council of Trent have been developed with the assistance of the Holy Spirit. Therefore: or the Holy Spirit was denied by Nunzio Galantino mouth - something unthinkable - or the Holy Spirit was absent from the Council of Trent, whereby, The claims in this great council against Luther, You can be considered unjust. What also unthinkable. There is also another possibility on which we will not delve too: what is the level of knowledge of Nunzio Galantino Pneumatology? . the ship sinking … We just have to recognize, as required by the Catholic faith, that the Council of Trent was assisted by the Holy Spirit and that its complaints are valid. So if someone is wrong and voiced so improvident judging the "Luther's reform" as a "gift of the Holy Spirit", such Nunzio Galantino, that does not enjoy the same support they enjoyed the assembled Fathers sat in the Council of Trent. . This does not mean that the thought of Luther does not also contain the valid aspects, ecumenism of the last fifty years has highlighted as never before the truths of faith that unite us Catholics to the brothers Lutherans based on common Christian roots. . About the true ecumenism, the Decree on Ecumenism Bond Remember that the brothers who were once separated from the Catholic Church, while retaining some truths of faith, They lie with the Church in an "imperfect communion" [n. 3], plagued with "gaps" and "obstacles" [n. 3], preventing these brothers to achieve full communion with the Roman Catholic Church. . sinking of the ship … The Second Vatican Council prescribes to us Catholics to strive with every lawful means, invoking the Holy Spirit, to persuade these brothers to remove "obstacles" and to fill in the 'gaps', that impede full communion with the Church, so that, "Overcome the obstacles preventing the perfect ecclesiastical communion" [n. 4], "Are fully incorporated who have in some way belong to the people of God" [n. 3]. . True ecumenism It is not only to find ourselves happily together in those same truths that have remained intact, despite the separation, overcoming and forgetting mutual failings of charity and justice that we have been in the past, perdonandoci a vicenda, but also - and this is the ultimate goal - nell'adoperarci tirelessly in the above sense, with all charity, humility, competence, prudence, mildness, courage, frankness, delicacy, patience and hope, waiting the hour of God, invoked in a continuous and constant prayer and pleaded with the offering of sacrifices and performing good works, done together. . the famous Titanic orchestra during the sinking continued to play … The separated brethren They must be loved, but also correct, if you really loved. There is in fact a wrong ecumenism and ambiguous that leads nowhere, too considerate and opportunistic, not the result of true charity, for which there is a risk that instead of being Lutherans to review their positions, Catholics are to be swayed by Luther's errors, so it runs the false opinion that the Church has erred in his judgment of Luther or misunderstood and therefore not worth more past convictions. . We felt good about what do here a list of popular character of Luther errors, It has been known for five centuries, exposed for thesis, that reflect his thinking without expecting to ever bring the Eusebius. Such errors should be recognized and judged in the light of the Magisterium of the Church, especially the Bull Arise, O of Pope Leo X and the decrees of the Council of Trent. . the commander of the steamer, remained at the helm … Errors Lutheran ancestry They are also condemned by other important documents of the Church, such as those of the First Vatican Council, the Catechism and the encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis St. Pius X, but also by the same Vatican II, above documents The Council, Lumen Gentium, Dei Verbum, Priesthood, perfect Charity and Christ the Lord ; and who today, by the ecclesiastical academic chairs and from church pulpits, It tells you that the Second Vatican Council opened to Luther and Protestantism by incorporating their concerns, I mind so dangerous and pernicious. . Grandi also the actions of Pius XII on liturgy or church or the modern errors etched in Encyclical Humani Generis, of Blessed Pope Paul VI on the Eucharist, or theological language, St. John Paul II, on the priesthood, on religious life, morals or faith-reason relationship, all acts of the Magisterium that correct errors Lutherans. There are also many interventions Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith the last fifty years have references to Luther, although it is not named, or to harmful consequences of his thought, from Sacramentum a Dominus Jesus. But the most important and current benchmark is the Catechism of the Catholic Church. . l'inabissamento the Piroscafo … How and why did the “reform” Lutheran? What he decided to do Luther? The "reform" is born from tormenting Luther's own sinfulness, of its difficulty to obey the divine law, fear that God riprovasse and extreme desire and always dissatisfied with having Friend . . An always feeling guilty and accused without being able to clarify and get out, despite all efforts, therefore an increasingly angry God, but without knowing why. The feeling of being a hypocrite, but without being certain . A feeling guilty and innocent at the same time. In the famous "tower experience" [Turmerlebnis] of 1515 But he was suddenly convinced that he had discovered the mercy of God and felt relieved and freed from his terrible torment ["I opened the doors of paradise ']. But Pope Leo X in the Bull reminded Arise, O of 1520 that to obtain God's mercy must be repent and do penance. But that Luther did not accept, because it seemed an impossibility, and he stared into the idea that the Pope distorts the gospel and the Church were driving out and against the line of the Gospel. He then lost confidence in the pope as an interpreter of the gospel and to guide the Church, so the way to get the reform of the Church, which he felt the need, It had to be based on a personal interpretation of Scripture ["Free examination"], on a direct contact with the Script. Luther is then said to this work, under which he took from the Catholic doctrine of many truths, he judged falsehoods added by the Pope to the Gospel, including the office of the Pope as an interpreter of the gospel. . S. AND. Mons. Nunzio Galantine, second in command of the Italian Episcopal Conference It is clear at this point that Luther, proud and obstinate in error, without denying that at the beginning he has proposed some good food for reform that has earned him the title of "reformer", He fell into heresy and separated himself from the angry church, founding a rebellious and heretical communities and taking with it many followers, to this day. Therefore he is also rightly called "heretic", founder of a messy and inconsistent set of communities without internal cohesion, albeit not without some points in common, characterizing Lutheranism as such, from the more fundamentalist the most liberal, in continuous contrast between them, as already she noted at the time Bossuet, and all for the fact that they lack the principle of unity in the truth, which is the Pope. Like Luther rebelled against the Pope, so easily Lutheran rebels to Luther. . The "" Luther's reforms ended therefore not real reform, in a purification, an advance or an improvement of the Church, but in a deformation Church. Indeed, real reform, It is the return something to its original form or is it develop in its form, distinguishing the genuine from the spurious. then it is clear that in these operations, so that the reform succeed, We have to keep an eye on the shape of the thing, because it is with this in the form that reform can succeed. But if you change or corrupts the form, It not born a reform, but a deformation. This was unfortunately the end result of the work of Luther. And here we really have to say that - with all due respect to Nunzio Galantino - that the Holy Spirit does not at all. . what is left of the boat of the Church after the guided crossings from various Nunzio Galantino … The original need for Luther was not so moral reform, but rather to find the truth of the Gospel, that he thought the Pope had lost. The reform is a consequence, but the starting point of Luther was the sudden and blissful certainty - at least so it seemed to him - he was enlightened by the truth: l ' "tower experience" or, as he intended, God's mercy. This assurance became for him an essential point and reason for living, assurance of salvation, and duty to proclaim it as the true gospel, even if it means going against the Pope. From what we identify the original moral wellspring of Luther's errors that was contested by the Council of Tento: the presumption of salvation without merit as a remedy to despair of salvation by works. Luther could not stand that God would punish him for disobeying his law. He saw it as a cruel God. He, at the beginning, He misunderstood the divine justice and believed that God asked him to do more than he could. . The other part, He had an exaggerated conception too pessimistic and the corruption of human nature and concupiscence following on original sin, exchanging the latter with sin, as I chided the Council of Trent [Denz. 1515], whereby, because it is permanent even in the right, He believed that sin is permanent [permanent sin] Also in the right, so that it froze on these well-known ideas : . . the right flaw in every good work [Denz. 1525]; As a result of original sin, concupiscence is invincible, it is impossible for those who are in favor with the commandments [Denz. 1521, 1568]; If God punished for disobeying his law, it would be unfair and cruel, because it is impossible to obey [Denz. 1568]; Therefore God, if you want to be merciful, He must accept the sin and forgive unconditionally [Denz. 1570], ie without works of penance [Denz. 1579, 1692, 1693,1713, 1715] and without merit, because there is not saved with the works, but with faith to be saved [Denz. 1559, 1580]; The true God is not the God of reason, inaccessible, far, abstract, but the concrete God, close, accessible, sensible, incarnate in Jesus Christ. The first is terrifying and despotic; the second is kind and merciful [Denz.3016, 3019]; True theology is not speculative theology, but the Theology of the Cross [Denz. 3016]; Christ took our sin to give us his righteousness [Denz. 1529]; Faith is the assurance, hope and confidence to save themselves apart from works [Denz. 1533, 1534, 1535, 1562, 1570]; It is impossible to faith without charity [Denz.1578]; The fear of hell is lack of trust in the mercy of God [Denz. 1526, 1534, 1541, 1558]; Those who believe that he sincerely repented is a hypocrite [Denz. 1705]; Who claims to have made a good confession and being purified from sins, not much room to divine mercy [Denz.1459]; God does not punish the sins of those who have faith to be saved, but forgive them even if he sins. It punishes only those who have no faith to be saved, because it means that he does not trust in his mercy [Denz. 1560]; To be forgiven by God just believe to be forgiven [Denz. 1563, 1564, 1570]; We need not worry if we sin; sinning is inevitable: just have faith to be forgiven and forgiven [Denz. 1563, 1564, 1570]; The Gospel message is not that we can be forgiven, but that we are already forgiven. Just have faith in this. This is the faith [Denz. 1563, 1564, 1570]; Subject of faith are not abstract ideas, but my and your salvation [Denz. 3016]; Salvation is not a result of works, but it is a pure gift of grace [Denz. 1531, 1545]; One is not saved by merit, but by grace alone.
