The death penalty and the new “dogmas”Church: why not trust Adolf Hitler and Pol Pot to direct social services by the priest Antonio Mazzi? 3 August 201828 September 2018 isoladipatmos - Church news - THE DEATH PENALTY AND THE NEW "DOGMAS" CHURCH: BECAUSE DO NOT LEAVE ADOLF HITLER AND POL POT TO SOCIAL SERVICES DIRECT FROM PRIEST ANTONIO DECKS ? . The cases in which the death penalty is appropriate and necessary especially, They are indeed very rare, if not, today, non-existent. It is doubtful that the very rare cases do not come back to recur tomorrow; on the contrary, now it degenerated into a world in forms of disturbing human and moral decay, as well as a lot worst violence of earlier times, It may also be that some cases will recreate, perhaps even worse than before, and even sooner than you can imagine, just think of terrorism politically motivated or pseudo-religious nature. . AuthorAriel S. Levi Gualdo . . PDF format Print article . . . Father Ariel S. Levi Gualdo during a summer break from work in Sicily, escorted as an authentic Vip from its efficient and clever body-guard staff I take this opportunity to inform readers who have written to us that we are not on vacation. If the 17 June we published no more articles is because we have retained a number of works, travel and meetings over the summer, taking advantage of this period to the new organization of The island of Patmos, that from September it will present a new look. . on the page Theologically We publish soon two essays of Fathers de The island of Patmos: one on holiness and of canonization, one on humility as a principle of realism gnoseologic. Then in September we will return to our full workrate. . Taking a look at the sites and Catholics today's blog you can find an army of Roman Catholic lay apostolate committed and militants in the role of theologians and canonists, as well as commentators QUESTION in the ratio to "Marco Pannella beating St. Thomas Aquinas" [cf. WHO]. What these people amazes and amuses largely, Their seriousness is that it proceeds to step dance with catastrophism, deprived as they are of any healthy sense of irony. This leads them to feel bad and to live badly, thereby inducing a sick and evil to live all those who fall into the traps of their emotionality. . Time ago, in an article entitled boccaccesco published on these our columns, We spoke of something very serious, although that article had a strong headline, but it was intended to be a very profound paradigm: "I seriously pigliateli, pigliateli my ass' [cf. WHO]. . The doctrine and the Catechism of the Catholic Church there is nothing to laugh at. And yet, those who know the history of the Church and in particular that of its councils, He knows that in the course of some of them, including major dogmatic councils, there was a great flowering of ironies by the Fathers gathered nell'assise. We take only the last: when during the First Vatican Council Blessed Pope Pius IX explained his intention to proclaim the dogma of papal infallibility in matters of doctrine and faith, among the Fathers of the Church began to circulate this entry: "But what he was put into the head? With the election to the holy throne has become a Pope, Now does that become an Eternal Father?». . During the work of Vatican II, Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani said Cardinal Antonio Bacci: "Good thing we now have a certain age, because maybe we'll make dying more Catholics!». And who this sentence attempted to use it later as a harsh criticism of the Vatican Council II, He did not understand the pure irony, let alone the fact that Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani was highly esteemed by Pope Paul VI, that in the drafting of his encyclical suffered Humanae Vitae first held in high esteem the opinions and this blunt tips, loyal and very Roman cardinal, who left office as prefect of the former Holy Office, later he became the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, until the age of 78 year old, during his first five years of pontificate, ie the most delicate in absolute. Memorable were the words of Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani on the future of the Holy Father John Paul II who wanted to personally celebrate his funeral the 6 August 1979, remembering that a year before, the 6 August, at the same time returning to the Father's House, the Supreme Pontiff Paul VI. . Instead Going still further back in time, we find that when the weapon of irony ended up being ineffective, then the Church Fathers did not hesitate to unleash real fights and take a fight with each other, as it happened during the Council of Nicaea in the year 325 and in other subsequent councils, so much so that the emperors - which at the time formally summoned councils - They arranged an external call, prior order given to the soldiers to get inside the classroom trullana to quell any riots, if they broke. Incidentally: It was called τροῦλλoς, Classroom of the trulli, the imperial palace of Constantinople where the councils were held in the years 680 and 692. . If the Pope Francis I It decided to amend and approve a new wording of the number 2267 the Catechism of the Catholic Church dedicated to the death penalty, first of all we must start from an obvious fact: He decided to pursue his sacrosanct and legitimate authority. And these its powers - which I repeat are sacrosanct and legitimate -, if these are not just like the Roman Catholic apostolic lay people involved and militants, but these are always, otherwise we would end up falling in the Lutheran psychology paradoxical order to protect an unspecified traditio catholica, afterward in psychology borderline that educated, amiable and reputable person of Professor Roberto de Mattei and all his followers … . … let's see how this particular kind of psychology in certain subjects: when it comes to discussing the liturgical reform and the Roman Missal promulgated by Blessed Pope Paul VI, these Catholic circles they are ready to unleash criticism and controversy of everything and more [cf. WHO, WHO, WHO, WHO], but if it comes to discussing the Humanae Vitae, where the topics touch the themed themes, and the greatest sin of sins, ie everything that is related only indirectly to human sexuality, in this case it reaches up to the point of support, no ridiculous sentence, that the prohibition of contraceptives has a dogmatic foundation. And then, if the Blessed Pope Paul VI has not come to this solemn proclamation - obviously because he could not reach it -, In this case we thought others, so it should correct it using more rigorous [cf. WHO, WHO]. . Reading, for example, the blog Church&Council post, which contains in its archives hundreds of pages that mocks the Blessed Pope Paul VI to the Second Vatican Council referred disparagingly as a 'secret meeting', while the Missal promulgated by him after the liturgical reform is referred to as "Missal heretic" of the "Mass protestantica", we will notice that at the same time do not hesitate to confuse this upcoming Holy Pontiff with the legendary hero of the anti-slavery John Brow, singing the praises of His Holiness' glory glory hallelujah!» [cf. WHO] when it comes instead of the ban - it goes without saying, opinionated! - use of contraceptives [cf. WHO]. In conclusion: the liturgical reform and the Missal of Blessed Pope Paul VI are "Protestant heresies", Mass that results is a "Mass protestantica", while the prohibition of contraceptives is instead a dogma of faith - though never proclaimed by the Catholic Church -, on which you can not argue [cf. WHO]. That said it is worth recalling, although we do, the first to be aware that the wise and appropriate to ban the use of contraceptives for Catholics, It is a church discipline that could not be given through a solemn pronouncement of the infallible magisterium, it was just the Supreme Pontiff Paul VI [I refer to my previous article, WHO]. . Do not get dragged into moods and in some people's discontent that in their ridiculous inconsistency always takes quite seriously, and instead learn to "take the piss", because in that case, healthy and intelligent sneer, part in the great eschatological means of salvation, well not last to be a lesson holy, but above all an act of perfect Christian charity. . In ancient times, or so to say in quite another my life, I remember that during my legal studies I was able to articulately discuss and interesting with several of my fellow students with various academic Article number 139 of the Italian Constitution which states: "The form of Republic shall not be subject to constitutional revision". The reasons for the discussion were more or less the following: while understanding that this article was born as the result of the influence and the victory of the first referendum popular through which Italians voters chose the republican form of government in place of the Savoy monarchy, similar wording, It is not a real dogmatic expression entered in a secular Constitutional Charter? . The same question we could apply it to the new formulation of the wording of the Catechism, whose previous text recited number 2267 : . "The traditional teaching of the Church does not exclude, presupposing full ascertainment of the identity and responsibility of the offender, the use of the death penalty, when this is the only possible way of effectively defending the unjust life of humans. Are, instead, bloodless means are sufficient to defend and protect people's safety, authority will limit itself to such means, because they better correspond to the concrete conditions of the common good and are more in conformity to the dignity of the human person. Today, indeed, in consequence of the possibilities which the state has for effectively preventing crime by rendering inoffensive the one who has committed, without abandoning the chance to reform, cases of absolute necessity of executing the offender "are very rare, if not practically non-existent ''. . The Pope Francis I, exercising its legitimate authority and sum, He has decided to eliminate from this issue of the Catechism of the concept "when this is the only viable way", consequently the concluding part which states "cases of absolute necessity of executing the offender" are very rare, if not practically non-existent ''. . All prior explanation left to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith He has exerted in this regard its office in admirable fashion [See full text WHO]. . Many have written to me and asked me what I thought and if this was really necessary. I responded by saying that what I think is irrelevant, I am neither I nor others to me higher for sacramental able both to ecclesiastical charge, the supreme masters of doctrine and faith. No less, even a layman engaged as Riccardo Cascioli with all its columnists in the wake of The New Compass Daily, anger can manifest before an act of so legitimate magisterium, if anything, by placing the dots over the "i". Certain decisions fact fall in the Proceedings of the August reigning Pontiff who are not subject to discussion, like it or not those lay Catholics who for too long have now started playing dangerously on the theology, the ecclesiology and canon law. In conclusion, people who after seeing the evening movie blockbuster dedicated to The Ten Commandments [year 1956] with the legendary Yul Brynner in the role of the Pharaoh of Egypt, They woke up the next morning believing that biblical scholars sopraffini. And someone, It should even take them seriously? Here's what was meant to say, in that my old article ago, about the usefulness of "butt plug" that becomes an act of perfect charity [cf. WHO]. . Different matter if anyone asks me what things do you think a purely personal capacity and at the level so to speak purely academic, because then I can answer that the number 2267 the Catechism of the Catholic Church had been drawn up with great wisdom and balance under the pontificate of the Holy Father John Paul II and that this could be left. But we know well that today the Church also took over another fashion: on one side they beatify and canonize the Pontiffs, rather well in a huff, the other is reformulated in a different way the pages of their supreme magisterium. Even though this falls in full and ordinary legitimacy, so that in the government of the Roman Curia ambits there is a very comprehensive saying goes: "A Pope bubble and another sbolla!». . The cases in which the death penalty is appropriate and necessary are indeed very rare, if not, today, non-existent. It is doubtful that the very rare cases do not come back to recur tomorrow; on the contrary, now it degenerated into a world in forms of disturbing human and moral decay, as well as a lot worse violence than previous times, It may also be that some cases will recreate, perhaps even worse than before, and even sooner than you can imagine, just think of terrorism politically motivated or pseudo-religious nature. . Adolf Hitler apparently committed suicide to his own free choice within bunker Berlin. If that had not been, Analysts say historians have always believed that the war would last at least two more years, till you drop and the total self-destruction of Germany. . Saloth Sar, better known as Pol Pot, responsible for an impressive number of deaths and torture and unspeakable torture for years, finally fallen into the typical paranoia of dictators, starting from 1997 he began to see enemies everywhere, up to kill his most faithful collaborator Son Sen, he had only tried to reach an agreement with the government. Soon after, the military leader of the Khmer Rouge ordered the capture of Pol Pot and his imprisonment for life under house arrest. After various vicissitudes, April 1998 It has announced that the Khmer Rouge have decided to hand over Pol Pot to an International Court of Justice. The same night after the announcement, the dictator would, however, died of a heart attack. . Leave to life some iconic figures, changed by large slices of the population into real idols, Wellcome - and we know it very well -, facilitate the continuation of wars with everything in the price of atrocities and human lives that can result. Not only is it necessary to suppress them for the greater good of entire populations, but it is also good that their death sentence to happen publicly, or it is documented by photographs and movies, thereby to remove any illusion to indomitable deluded subject to plagiarism of certain leaders. And certain illusions can only be removed showing the population subjected to tyranny suppression and inexorable end of their idol, before which the decay mechanism of plagiarism, if anything, leaving room for other consequences, suffice in this regard to recall the wave of suicides that swept Germany after the fall of Hitler. Or have you forgotten that while Germany had already lost the war and was the total defeat, They began to recruit and to send to their deaths adolescents of fifteen and sixteen years, while a large portion of the population was sure that soon would be completed and used the "great secret weapon '? . Perhaps the Pope Francis I, assisted by a grace of the Holy Spirit very special, He has received special lighting which guaranteed him that never in future history will arise again some cases. And if you presentassero, at that point we will entrust some young Adolf Hitler or Pol Pot managed to social services by the priest Antonio Mazzi, so that it is brought to fruition their full recovery, because as we are taught that wise "Father of the Church" by Jean Jacques Rousseau: the bad man does not exist. And if esiste, this is not his fault, but the company, of history … . Asked if I am opposed to the death penalty, I say always yes, I am, but categorically and absolutely, or to put it improperly: so as “opinionated”. For as I have just explained, They can propose the very rare cases, also wanting only, in which it is right for the salvation of others suppress a human being. I also believe that the more severe the crime committed and the good must be the advocate practicing in favor of the accused the inalienable right to his defense. Never condemn to death the worst serial killers who is guilty of the most heinous murders, because once convicted and jailed for life, no longer constitute any danger, on the contrary, it is said that over the years, while the discount of its worth, It has not reformed, as rarely it happened, even within the Causes of Saints, just remember in this regard the murderess of Santa Maria Goretti, Alessandro Serenelli [1882-1970], that with the rosary in hand, kneeling in a side chapel, assisted in 1950 the ceremony of beatification of our beloved heroine of charity. Today, Alessandro Serenelli's remains buried in the same church in which she was buried mother Assunta, the mother of St. Maria Goretti. If Alessandro Serenelli had been tried and sentenced to death for his brutal murder preceded by an attempted rape, He would perhaps never got to, after the discount of its worth, to ask for forgiveness on his knees to the mother of the heroic girl, or he could live a truly holy life in a convent of Capuchin Friars, leaving a short spiritual testament which is, in its essential brevity, a true synthesis of the theology of redemption? And here he deserves quote his exact words: . "I'm almost old 80 year old, next to close my day. Taking a look at the past, I recognize that in my early youth slipped astray: the way of the evil that led me to ruin. I could see through the press, the shows and the bad examples that most of the young people follow that path, no thought: and I well I did not care. People believing, practicing I had next to me, but I did not mind, blinded by a brute force that pushed her to me the wrong way. It consumed twenty years the crime of passion, which now I horrified at the memory. Maria Goretti, holy hour, It was the good angel that Providence had put forth my steps. I still imprinted in the heart his words of rebuke and forgiveness. He prayed for me, intercedette per me, his killer. They followed thirty years in prison. If it was not a minor, I would be sentenced to life. I accepted the deserved judgment; espiai resigned my fault. Maria was really my light, My Protector; with his help diportai me well and I tried to live honestly, when the company I riaccettò among its members. The sons of St. Francis, the Capuchin Friars Minor of the Marches, with seraphic charity welcomed me among them not as a servant, but as a brother. With them live by 1936. And now I look serene time of being admitted to the vision of God, to hug my loved ones, to be close to my guardian angel and his dear mother, Assunta. Those who will read this letter want to make the happy teaching of avoiding evil, follow the good, always, since children. Think that religion with its precepts is not something that you can do without, but it is true comfort, The only sure way in all circumstances, even the most painful of life. Peace and good! » [Will Alessandro Serenelli, 5 May 1961] .. I repeat, therefore, that "like" or "I do not like" the reformulation of this passage from the Catechism of the Catholic Church is totally irrelevant affair, because the guardian of doctrine and faith are not me, least of all are the critical Roman Catholic lay apostolate committed and militant, but so is the Pope Francis I. . Otherwise you risk ending up so inglorious and dangerous as the Palermo priest Alessandro Minutella, boasting that at every turn to have earned two doctorates in sacred theology - as if they were dogmatic guarantee of wisdom and holiness -, but I did not have with what even understand the foundations of ecclesiology, He is scandalizing and disorienting the People of God by saying that the Holy Mass "in communion with our Pope Francis" is invalid and there is no transubstantiation, because in his opinion "the heretic Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio is not the legitimate Pontiff, but it is an anti-pope elected by Freemasonry " [see video, WHO, WHO]. To follow below with tragic amenities of various kinds, where no Catholic should ever fall, because today, the new heresiarch Luther became much more subtle and refined than yesterday and looks like a fighter enlightened by the Holy Spirit of God and the Blessed Virgin Mary for the defense of the true Church, the true faith and the true tradition. Unfortunately, with the result ever: guiding souls to the rebellion against Peter and then to perdition. . We can say with all the grace and devotion to him due that man Jorge Mario Bergoglio is not perfect, that as a private doctor showed signs of recklessness and ambiguity, pastoral deficiencies and Government. He is defective, just as it was Simon called Peter, that defects and limitatezze had perhaps several more than that his future successor. But when Peter spoke in matters of doctrine and faith, then it is silent. Otherwise, to defend their subjective Catholicism, It could really fall into the worst forms of Lutheranism. . .
