The issue of the permission of the Communion to the Protestant is actually the responsibility of Canon Law, but the material is constrained by dogmatic sacramentaria and ecclesiology, while the Cardinal Walter Kasper unfortunately does not take account of these constraints of no small importance, ending with the heresies endorse Lutheran. . . AuthorJohn Cavalcoli, o.p. . . PDF format Print article . . . Colonel Muammar Gaddafi [1942 – 2011] Libyan leader The Agency Press Vatican Insider It shows an interview conducted by Andrea Tornielli to Cardinal Walter Kasper on the question of legality of the Eucharistic Communion to Lutheran [see interview, WHO]. At issue is not the interviewer, but the interviewee. Therefore, who stigmatizes Andrea Tornielli, as it is happening, commits a grave error. It would be like blaming Oriana Fallaci to have interviewed Colonel Gaddafi in 1979, in a memorable interview he remained in the history of journalism. Fallaci, only he made their work [See text, WHO]. Or as I said a moment ago the Father Ariel S. Levi Gualdo: "It would be as if I, He called before his death at the bedside of a serial killer, I refused to confess'. And then, which of the two, Cardinal Kasper and Colonel Gaddafi, be more sympathetic and less dangerous, This is not something that concerns for any reason this article. Let's assign the sympathy prize to Readers, since today, more than ever, the grotesque imagination really seems to come to power. . We have already motivated in our other writings the teaching and directives of the Church on this delicate theme of the Eucharist and its administration, that, as St. John Paul II in the encyclical Ecclesia de Eucharistia of 1993: "It recapitulates the heart of the mystery of the Church" [n.1]; the Eucharist, "edifies the Church" [(c). (II)] and it is "the culmination of all the sacraments in perfecting our communion with God the Father through the compliance with the Only Begotten Son of the Holy Spirit" [n. 34]. . It is the principle generator and propeller, the summit and summit of the Church's life, in itself and in individual believers, the raison d'etre of its existence, that gives form to its essence. It is the bond of love that unites Christ to his bride, is the food of the Mystical Body of Christ. . It creates unity in diversity; obedience in freedom, charity in truth. It combines the brothers among themselves and with God; It joins the shepherds of the flock; It joins the flock to Peter and Peter to Christ. It contains all the mysteries of faith, all the treasure of the gifts of the Spirit, across the source and the strength of the virtues and the secrets of sanctity. It pushes constantly to progress and reform; gives the fervor of charity; He holds firm in perseverance and fidelity. It is a foretaste of future glory and pledge of eternal life. It should be taken with devotion, right intention, sincere faith and integrates, full ecclesial communion, with its own Bishop and with the Supreme Pontiff [Ecclesia de Eucharistia, n.39], the consciousness prepared and purified from sin. . Cardinal Kasper says that the granting of permission to Lutheran Communion is contained both in the Decree Bond of Vatican II, or in two encyclicals of St. John Paul II. Now, if we read these documents, we will notice that they are in compliance with the directives of Canon Law [Can. 844 § 3-4], I quoted and commented in my previous article. . As for the Council document, it reads as: . "This communicatio It is mainly governed by two principles: express the unity of the Church; the sharing in the means of grace '. . I note that there are two principles in tension between them, therefore, must be carefully linked: the first is concerned with the Communion with the Church; the second bay to the salvation of the believer. The first is closer to the outer hole; the second, the internal forum. The first is accentuated justice; in the second, mercy. . In this subject, as noted by the Canon Law, It works the pastoral authority of the Episcopal Conference or the individual diocesan Bishop. The fact exact Decree: . "About the concrete course of action, having regard to all the circumstances of time, place, of people, be decided by local episcopal authority of the place ". . The law grants the Church go meet the demands of our separated brethren only in cases of serious urgency. It is not at all part of the case that the applicant is the non-Catholic spouse. Indeed, the situation of the Lutheran in danger of death, spouse or non-spouse, provided for by Law, It is incomparable with that of the Lutheran spouse in good health. The first, as it is supposed, It is going to have to give an account to God of his life, while it is assumed that the second time and has way to educate and correct on the Eucharist and mend the previous conduct of Lutheran. . Cardinal Kasper quotes the texts of the two encyclicals of John Paul II says: . «To be one  and Ecclesia de Eucharistia  They have formulated a more advanced position may be the rule of interpretation of the fee in full harmony with the Second Vatican Council. In the first of two encyclicals of St. John Paul II, to the number 24  let's read: "It is a source of joy to note that Catholic ministers are able, in certain particular cases, administer the sacraments, Penance, Anointing of the Sick to Christians who are not in full communion with the Catholic Church, but who greatly desire to receive, ask them freely, and manifest the faith which the Catholic Church professes with regard to these sacraments ". . While in the second encyclical of the same Pontiff, to the number 45, let's read: "If it is never legitimate to concelebrate in the absence of full communion, It does not happen the same respect administration of the Eucharist, in special circumstances, to individual persons belonging to Churches or Ecclesial Communities not in full communion with the Catholic Church. In this case, indeed, the goal is to meet a grave spiritual need for the eternal salvation of an individual believer ". . And the Cardinal says: . "The two encyclicals insist much on the accession of the Protestant to Catholic doctrine on the Eucharist, ie on manifesting "the faith which the Catholic Church confesses, to quote Pope John Paul II. This seems very important, because the sacraments are sacraments of faith. For a true Lutheran, which is based on confessions, the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist is obvious […] Sure you can not apply for a Protestant than you normally takes a Catholic. Just believe: "This is (East) the body of Christ, given for you ". On this Luther also he insisted strongly. The most developed doctrines about transubstantiation or consubstantiation, Also a faithful Catholic "normal" does not know…». . Refutation of the Cardinal Kasper errors . The Cardinal comes at a frightening air pocket, indeed, if "you can not take from a Protestant as it normally takes to be a Catholic", then we must say frankly to this Protestant who can not go to Communion. And then, the plane, even plummets: . "Just believe: "This is (East) the body of Christ, given for you ". On this Luther also he insisted strongly. The most developed doctrines about transubstantiation or consubstantiation, Also a faithful Catholic "normal" does not know ". . But believe what? A Catholic who knows and accepts the dogma of transubstantiation is not a Catholic "normal", but is ignorant Catholic, urgently needs to be educated, lest he fall into heresy and not he happens, as St. Paul warns, unworthily to eat the Lord's body, ie not to recognize and then to "eat his own condemnation" [The Cor 11,29]. Anyhow, if you like Cardinal says, Protestant truly believe the words "this is the Lord's body", pronounced by the priest at Mass, it will mean that believes in transubstantiation. And if we believe, He can not continue to maintain the Lutheran faith, should say: "There is the Lord" in this bread. But it will mean that he converted to Catholicism. . He added Cardinal Kasper: . "If these people, in a context quite secularized, They are true believers who believe and are united in the same baptism and thus are part of the one Church of Christ (though not in full communion), and they are also linked in the sacrament of marriage and the union representing the mystery of Christ and his Church and living, They are together with their children, a house church. It is normal to feel the intimate desire to also share the Eucharist. If they also share the Catholic eucharistic faith, what prevents? [cf. Acts of the Apostles 7, 37; 10,47]». . The texts of St. Paul do not need at all to the thesis of Cardinal, because they deal with other matters. Instead, we know how demanding the ecclesiology and the sacraments of the Blessed Apostle Paul, that does not ignore the lower grades or imperfect of ecclesial communion that are proper to the catechumens, but when it comes to Eucharistic Communion it requires full ecclesial communion, as it can be seen from the same term "Communion". . Paul is ecumenism teacher for his extraordinary openness of mind, for his respect for diversity and the values of the greek-Roman culture, for the sense of universality of the Gospel message, and for its understanding for the lower forms and for the weaknesses of human spirituality, for his ability to dialogue with everyone and everywhere seize the positive by leading to Christ. . Paul's ecumenism is not, however, play a sull'equivoco, a silence error rather than correct it; is not an idling inconclusive, one to always be on the threshold of the Church without ever encourage his brother to enter all’interno sanctuary, but instead is a genuine mutual reconciliation factor in Christ and in the Church under the guidance of Peter, It is always a free call to conversion and to accept the fullness of truth, It is a powerful and warm invitation to experience in depth the mystery of Christ and his Church. . With regards to the Pope to Bishops to "find a common solution», says Cardinal Kasper: . "I think that the Pope gave a very wise answer. He has remained in complete harmony with the idea of collegiality of the Church. But he also pointed out that on the fundamental issues not just a majority of the legal canonically, It needs unanimity ". . The Pope, in urging the bishops to come to a "possible consensus", It can certainly neither have understood that may grant communion in the sense understood by Cardinal Kasper, which would imply a desecration of the Eucharist, nor can it understood that must reach agreement by a simple majority vote, how they would interpret other, ready to accuse the Pope of irresponsibility, not to know how to evaluate the seriousness of the issue and the political mentality, but certainly it implies that the agreement should be based on Scripture, Tradition, Canon Law. . It is conceivable that the discussion of Bishops on this topic emerge a proposal to the Pope to change the current provisions on the canon law, but of course always in consonance with the imperative requirements of the divine right, for which he can not be lawful to treat a brother who is not in full communion with the Church, nor is it intended to be so, like one, or he may be lawful to pretend to be in full communion with the Church, that he actually refuses, unless he intends to or want to become a Catholic, as it is understood in the case of the Protestant Communion in danger of death. . He continued Cardinal Kasper: . "I think the admonition of the Apostle Paul, examine themselves to see if you can eat and drink from the altar [1 Color 11,26]: an indication that it is not only Protestants but also for Catholics. Initial applications are the same: I really believe in the Eucharistic mystery and my way of life is in tune with what is celebrated and which is present in the Eucharist?». . Cardinal Kasper does not realize the difference that exists here between the Catholic and Protestant. Indeed, while the Catholic can certainly make a sacrilegious Communion, if you approach the Eucharist in a state of mortal sin and without the necessary provisions, Lutheran is devoid of the necessary provisions as Lutheran, whereby, except in cases of good faith, if not remedied in advance by removing these bad provisions, but it keeps them knowingly and willingly, It can not be guilty of profaning the body and blood of the Lord, and so far more serious Catholic, that accepts the dogma of the Eucharist with all the truths of faith and moral values that are connected and is in full communion with the Church, although with the Catholic sacrilege bad compromises that communion and thus needs fixing. However, unlike the Protestant, which remains in a partial fellowship, Catholic least knows what to do to recover the cracked communion and it is supposed to do it. . Even Cardinal Kasper: . "If a Protestant participating in the Eucharistic celebration, listens to what we say in the Eucharistic Prayer. We must ask ourselves: can at the end of the doxology truly answer with the whole assembly: “Amen, I think yes. "also we will feel that we name the name of the Pope and the bishop, which means that we celebrate in communion with him. You must ask: "I really want this fellowship?ˮ ». . Is a Protestant, really, sincerely, not pretend, a Mass ago and he believes all those things, It should rather ask if he has not abandoned Lutheranism to become a Catholic. In this case he is certainly ready, willing and permitted to receive Communion, after entering into communion with the Catholic faith. . Adds Cardinal Kasper: . "I met many Protestants who have more esteem and often even more love for current Popes than they have some Catholic critics and skeptics". . Unfortunately, it is estimating that many Protestants have for the present Pope It has nothing to do with the acceptance of the primacy of the Pope, infallible Master of the Doctrine of the Faith, possessor of the "keys sums", Supreme liturgist, Keeper and Dispenser of heavenly mysteries and sacraments of salvation and Moderator of the Divine Liturgy, but it is motivated by purely human interests, ie from the simple fact that Pope Francis does not correct them in their mistakes and urges them to convert to the Catholic Church. But if they read these Protestants what Luther said Pope Leo X or St. Pius V and Blessed Pius IX and Leo XIII and St. Pius X, I think that would change opinion on the papacy. . The other part, it is true that some Catholic, too attached to the past and rebels in Vatican Council II, a bad example of behavior towards the Pope. But there are also those who turn to the Pope, with respect that is due, legitimate criticism, precisely in order to help in leading the Church, which it is the People of God, Guided by the Spirit, collegially, flock and shepherds, Under Peter and Peter. . We conclude these considerazionthe noting that the spouse's desire to receive Communion Lutheran must be taken seriously, but it must be carefully examined, to ensure it is not dictated by psychological emotions, yes human sympathy, by need empathic sharing, by imitation instinct, the need to be approved, by a desire not to feel left out or make themselves attractive, from fiction with ulterior motives and things like that. . The subject must be started gradually and methodically, with an appropriate catechesis, the experience of the sublime Mystery, so that they are removed, as indicated by 'Bond [n. 3], all those "obstacles" that Luther stepped, with its false reform, the worthy consuming of the Eucharistic bread. . Indeed, the desire to receive Communion while remaining Lutheran It makes no sense and is an inconsistent attitude not to say schizophrenic and that has nothing to do with ecumenism. The shortage Lutheran ecclesiology, indeed, It consists precisely in the absence of the most noble and supernatural factors of the ecclesial reality, which I am precisely the sacraments, among which the most sacred and the most divine of all is precisely the Eucharist, introduced by the sacrament of Penance, and then rise to the celebration of the Mass in full communion with the Church and the Pope. . If, therefore, a Lutheran approach sincerely wants to Communion, this must be the proven and clear sign that he wants to recover all those elements of the Church and all those elements of faith that Luther had destroyed and which are the prerequisite to the reception of the Eucharist; In other words, It will be a sign that wants to be Catholic. And bless God for this divine inspiration! . The fundamental error of the theology of Cardinal Kasper . The whole argument of Cardinal Kasper rests on a serious flaw the epistemological character, I have shown in my essay to be published and dedicated to the epistemology of Cardinal Kasper. The light of this vice is given by the following words: . "Of course, always apply the theological principles, but their practical application is not made in one deductive and mechanical way. If we did, It would be the heresy of gnosticism, It is rightly denounced by the current Pope ». . It is the method of rational deduction is speculative and moral, that Cardinal Kasper is not based on the objectivity of reality and truth, but the "modern principle of subjectivity", ie on cogito Cartesian "for which man becomes conscious of his autonomy and freedom as if it makes the starting point, and measurement means for a whole conception of reality " [cf. Jesus the Christ, Queriniana Publishing, 1981, the. 253]. Consequently, continued Cardinal Kasper: . "A God who is now thought within the horizon of subjectivity can no longer be understood as the Supreme Being, perfect and immutable ", so we need a "de-substantialization the concept of God '. . Therefore, per Kasper, as Hegel, l'It will be identified with becoming, God becomes, move, and it identifies with the story: the Absolute is not on the story, but in history, according to the title of his study of Schelling . Hence the mutability of human nature and the moral law, as already he denounced St. Pius X in his encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis. . Now the cogito Cartesian contains in itself, as it has been shown by studies Fabro and Maritain, the principle of idealism and Hegelian pantheism, as results from careful observation of the history of philosophy, and the explicit refer to Descartes idealists and pantheist. Which means that the cogito already it contains in nuce the principle of Absolute Knowledge Hegel, which it is precisely the most elaborate form of modern Gnosticism. . If there is someone to blame so today of Gnosticism, these is Cardinal Kasper and not at the logical deduction mechanism, applying moral principles in particular cases. The ecclesiastical positive law admits exceptions, but not the natural moral law, unless the epikeia, where exactly it is not an exception, but to suspend the application of an inferior law in the name of the application of a higher law. Instead the divine law never admits even the epikeia. . The issue of the permission of the Communion to the Protestant It is effectively the expertise of Canon Law, but the material is constrained by dogmatic sacramentaria and ecclesiology, while the Cardinal Walter Kasper unfortunately does not take account of these constraints of no small importance, ending with the heresies endorse Lutheran. .
