The GOSPEL OF THE TEMPTATIONS : SEARCH THE DEMON OF HITTING THE WORD OF GOD IN HIS HUMANITY

.

If the devil can take pride in, relying on the weak points of the ambition and vanity, can make us what we want and get what craving since the dawn of time: who we prostrate ourselves before him and worshiping him call Lord. And for a better name Lord, then we will go directly into the house of Satan, as recently did the president of the Pontifical Academy for Life, Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, to beatify the headquarters of the Radical Party the "spirituality" and "the precious heritage" of those who, such as the late Marco Pannella, the supreme gift of life attacked him and profaned, indicating as "civil rights" and as "social achievement" the monstrous crime of abortion [on the topic, see the article by John Cavalcoli: "Marco Pannella, “saint now !”», see WHO]

In this brief passage from the Gospel we are faced with a paradox: really it happened that the devil has tempted God Incarnate, the Word was made flesh ? [CF. Mt 4, 1-11 - text WHO]. Perhaps the devil attempted to play God in his humanity, pretending to be unaware of what Jesus was divine in his humanity and his divinity in human. Blinded by pride and by the delirium of omnipotence tend to overestimate the most of themselves and to underestimate others, why they are doomed to defeat. It may be that they do not fall in the near, but inevitably fall at the first change of season, with the wilting of wildflowers.

In Gospel of the temptations, one would think just that: that the Devil overestimate himself and underestimate God [following full text …]

  1. Three years ago one of my students asked me averages (to clarify that I was teaching letters, no religion): “Teacher, it is true that the devil exists? The professor of religion says that it was only a projection of the doubts of Jesus man…” I barely held back the anger and, since I could not criticize behind a colleague, answered: “Who said Pope Francis? Who does not please Christ, Please the devil. Also there are people who pray to heal the possessed”. The girl was happy and said to her friends: “Seen? I said it that there!”. But I was very sick at the thought of what kind of teachers “religion” are now in circulation (this is not the only case).

    1. Dear Professor,

      the situation of teachers of religion, few exceptions, It is dramatic traits.
      This is the reason why I have always said unfavorable to this teaching, especially considering the forms of clerical patronage, or if prefers impudent nepotism … I mean: in some dioceses – especially of Southern Italy -, teachers of religion are mostly women, most of which invariably sisters, grandchildren, cousins ​​and relatives of several priests, obviously starting from managers in charge of the teachers themselves.

      In an Italian diocese was discovered long ago that the priest in charge of’school office, he had enrolled 14 his family members including teachers of religion, of which 8 without even the required title, but provisional for years and years.

      The second reason why I am in favor of the abolition of this teaching is the lack of doctrinal preparation of teachers, always subject to rare exceptions.

      Do catechesis in schools is not possible, particularly today, In our contemporary society.
      To spread Catholic doctrine we parishes, ecclesiastical institutions, youth movements, etc. … that will work on those and through those.

      Anyhow, if you have the kindness to read my old text dating from the 2015, you will find various explanations in this regard, You can open it by clicking WHO

  2. I forgot another pearl. In Reggio Emilia, a few years ago that they had invented to teach religion in schools it was enough to have followed a course of a few months (!). The result was that those who had studied years at the Institute of Religious Sciences was bypassed by teachers avowedly atheist who had rushed to obtain a license in that way just to earn some money by adding more teaching religion to their duties. It was pointed out the scandal to the Diocese, but without any response. Probably it was fine with the Diocese because of the local political context in red: nothing grits and all happy (and “Democrats”, obviously).
