The EPISCOPATE German and intercommunion MASS WITH PROTESTANT. PETER WASHES HANDS AS PILATO: "FIND A SOLUTION BETWEEN YOU UNANIMOUS"

.

If the Bishops of Germany, unanimously they were to agree to give Holy Communion to Protestants, what will happen tomorrow, if another episcopal conference, unanimously, decide to unite in marriage same-sex couples? What will happen if another, unanimously, decide that it is permissible to abort the fetus of a baby found suffering from malformation, not considering it right to give birth to a creature affected by imperfections? What will happen if another, unanimously, It decides that it is an act of charity to end the life of a terminally ill and suffering that has no life expectancy? Since when, unanimity, It is a guarantee of sound doctrine and profound respect to revealed truth?

Contrary to those who for years are stealing the reviews on the subject contained in the articles of Fathers of The Island of Patmos looking from mentioning the Authors, doing then pass certain analysis as their own, we have proven Christian intellectual honesty and always mention when we appeal to any past or present author, well it was a minimum sigh. This is the reason why our writings published on the page Actuality abound with numerous citations in brackets, those on the page Theologically notes at the page bottom or between the lines of text.

.

This introductory preamble just to sing two anthems: the first, to tenants who after the harvest they look from saying where they harvest the grapes. The second, to excuse me if I quote below the expression of an author that at the time I just can not remember the name, this thing that prevents me from giving the legitimate paternity to a phrase not mine, which is as follows: "The Supreme Pontiffs have placed the tiara, the laity and theologians have worn '.

.

When you feel discomfort, or subjective discomfort human, we must keep it, to limit talk privately with those who can possibly help. This not only because the emotion is not to be publicized, but because it is not appropriate or prudent to do so, less still it is to download their any inconvenience on others, in a very special way when - like the writer of these lines -, He has called for the sacrament of grace and mission to be guides and teachers, not sowers of confusion. But when the discomfort is objective, because based on public facts, often painful or even dangerous, in that case, manifest discomfort, It can be an imperative following awareness obligation to explain what is right and what wrong, if anything, even preaching to that slice of the People of God made slothful by bad shepherds to feel discomfort and pain before certain grave problems affecting society and the Church. All this with all due respect to those who try to eliminate certain problems at the root saying: "Nobody has the truth in your pocket". Phrase that said and then read in a certain way consequently leads to say that at the bottom, the truth, it is questionable, but above all relative. If anything, it is true that no one owns the truth, of which we are called to be faithful servants and announcers, or as St. Thomas Aquinas: "You're not you who possess the truth, but it is the truth that has you " [cf. De veritate]. For this reason, wriggling from certain discussions or answers with ambiguous phrase "No one has the truth in your pocket", statement is false and dangerous in itself, place the Church, which is a, saint, Catholic and Apostolic, the truth is the trustee and custodian, so, far from having in his pocket, have it still in custody by the will and divine mandate. And we, that we are certainly not its masters, But we are his faithful servants, guardians and announcers. Therefore, who announced this truth and defends it from error, It is not acting in this way because with style pelagiano the legalistic He believed to have in your pocket, but precisely because it must serve, defend it and proclaim it. No one who is true guardian and herald of truth may omit to specify and order the error, why in the world, with the truth, there is also the anti-truth that wants to impose on the truth, often so violent and destructive, but mostly untrue.

THOSE IN QUESTION AND LAY unconscious EVERYTHING REDUCED FOR A CLASH OF THE PARTY AND THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY OF progressives

.

The ongoing controversy unleashed these days the German Episcopate on giving Holy Communion to Protestants, It is a delicacy beyond any ordinary, because once again, these indomitable and irreconcilable barbarians, touch on beyond Rome and above Roma heart engine that drives the whole Mystical Body which is the Church: the Most Holy Eucharist. And before this problem, all of the theological and ecclesiological, as well as canonical and disciplinary, the laiconi floundering between an online journal and between a blog and the other, They are reducing their style as the whole issue to a political conflict.

.

Aware of speaking to that effect to the deaf, I repeat that certain major issues are theological and doctrinal, then face them with the typical spirit of the political tussle, eventually reducing everything to a struggle between the so-called party of the conservatives and the progressives, It can only encourage the de-consecration of the sacramental signs and reduce the Church of Christ to a battlefield on which collide animated subjective moods at the base by pure ideology, not rarely even by personal problems of certain people who would need a good spiritual director, of a good confessor, but sometimes certain of a good psychiatrist.

.

This inevitably leads to some lay people who stood on his head the tiara placed by the Supreme Pontiffs, to cause further damage to the Church and to the People of God, never as lost and confused today.

GREAT DECEPTION THAT ALL PLAYED BY PARA-COUNCIL AND THE COUNCIL ON POST-A LANGUAGE NOT JUST HAPPY ADOPTED BY THE SECOND VATICAN COUNCIL

.

briefly summarize the overrun problem Germany then proceed with the analysis of the fact: The German Bishops' Conference discussed the possibility of giving Holy Communion to married Protestants with Catholics, adopting in this sense, the technique of the so-called "sliced ​​salami". Indeed, each time in the Church were granted limited special pardons and as many limited permissions to experiment, these concessions were then adopted practices, almost always it spreads beyond all limits of what had been granted. A concrete example of the many that serve as a paradigm? Soon said: the liturgical reform etched in The Council [cf. text WHO]. Please read this carefully and then make an evaluation: which are written, indicated and granted all liturgical aberrations, many of which are flush with the sacrilege of the Holy Eucharist, who for four decades we've made in many of our churches to the nefarious work of an army of exotic creative priests? In the text there is no trace, let alone legitimacy of the worst now institutionalized liturgical abuses in the fearful silence of the bishops who do not ensure, They do not prohibit and not awarded on the proponents of certain aberrations; if anything, they take strong dislike and make life bitter for those few priests who dare complain as this is not good and what is the duty of bishops oversee and stamp out certain practices in the clergy. Therefore, if the text of that reform does not permit grants what is now plain for all in many of our churches, where does the problem, or rather the catch? Arises from the fact that the documents of Vatican II - as I explained more times [cf. eg. WHO] - use a new language, which affected, for the strong influence exerted by the Teutonic theologians, the typical style of German Romanticism decadent. To this is then added the optimism of Pope John XXIII, convinced that we must not always judge and condemn, but rather talk. Through this set of things we can finally reach the documents that express profound concepts, valid and useful, together with urgent and necessary reforms such as The Council, but omitting to clarify through the precise standards that what is right and what is wrong, What is allowed and what is prohibited, if anything, even adding fines and penalties for offenders, the so-called "Anathema sit», often it used in documents of previous councils, who have not been any less of councils meta-council Vatican, even if in the opinion of the whole foolhardy many theologians, with this last session of the Council seems finally to be born suddenly, after two thousand years of history, the Catholic Church.

.

The certainty and clarity of the doctrine and canon law, It is not only protecting the deposit of faith, of truth and thus the doctrine itself, but also valuable protection for Ministers in sacris and the Christi fideles, in order to avoid those kinds of injustices and abuses that almost always take life by the poor lack of clarity. In fact, when we hear the "revolutionary" cry "enough of this legalism, with this doctrinal hardness, with this "cult" of canon law!», always it ends up failing both the certainty of the law also erected to protect the members of the Body of the Church, is the clear doctrinal definition of what is lawful and unlawful, right and wrong, what is the truth and against what the other hand is false and erroneous. A quel point, when the lack of clarity leaves room for ambiguity, here is that Ministers in sacris on the one hand and Christi fideles on the other hand, they will end up becoming victims suffering of the free will of those who can make the biggest voice and impose itself despotically.

WHERE CAN REACH THE SIN OF MURDERERS Catholic Faith;? UP TO beatify and canonize I POPES IN THEMSELVES HAVE DESTROYED THE TEACHINGS

.

The capocomici of this terrible theater had among other things need to beatify and canonize then all the Popes of the post-conciliar. But beware well: not because nothing interests them the elevation of these Pontiffs to the altar glories, but because through them they wanted dogmatise and finally canonizing the para-council and then the post-council. And all this they did it with a spirit evil delinquent, because the same people who wanted at all costs Blessed and Saints these Popes, are also the same people who are questioning the human life imminent Holy Paul VI; They are the same who have destroyed over the past five years the teaching of St. John Paul II, not hesitating to define the Family company as a document dated, exceeded, but above all the result of sexual phobia inherent in the moral rigor of the Supreme Pontiff. And yet, just how much of what they believe, teaching and acting accordingly, but especially undermining and destroying the teaching of these blesseds and saints Popes, They wanted at all costs to canonize John Paul II in record time, instead of waiting for him as for his other predecessors, as prudence of the Church he imposed once, Thirty years after death, before opening a long process, finally reaching, no earlier than half a century after their death, the first stage of their beatification.

.

It is thus clear to what kind of dangerous and destructive criminals we ended up in the hands? It is therefore clear how, these dangerous and destructive criminals, They are wreaking serious damage in the Church, favoring the worst decadence and self-destruction inside, after replacing the clear language and certainly with the "poetic hope", Finally replacing the much-despised "harsh and strict law", with their staff and free will tyrannical?

.

It was old overall context of fifty this weak language, uncertain, apparently permissive and open to all the disparate hypotheses, you have to read the recent case of the German Bishops, but staging political clashes between the party and the conservative party of progressives, as do the so-called lay people engaged who are put at the head of the tiara deposed Popes.

.

All this is at the so-called "salami technique", of which it is granted a slice, but later, a slice behind the other, It is sliced ​​and taken everything. The same goes for the repeated proposal farfetched which presses on one of the greatest destroyers of the Church of Brazil and as such a major contributor of uncontrollable bleeding of his faithful, Cardinal Claudio Hummes, pressing to have - obviously to experiment ― i sources try married ordained priests for the region of the Amazon where there is the greatest shortage of clergy. I say then, hypothetically: we allow the well 'experimentum, only to see at a glance how the Amazons will also become Belgium, Holland, Germany, France and so to follow.

BISHOPS OF GERMANY HAVE DISCUSSED ON THIS ON WHICH THERE IS NO REASON TO DISCUSS YOUR OWN, WHILE THE CARDINAL REINHARD MARX PLAYING AT Vestal Virgin

.

Of the twenty-seven members who make up the Episcopal Conference of Germany, plus the Exarchate Professor of Germany and Scandinavia and the Military Ordinariate, for a total of twenty-nine diocesan bishops, who are joined by a total of forty-one auxiliary bishops assigned to the holders of episcopal chairs of these twenty-seven dioceses, seven diocesan bishops in total have sent a letter to the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, S. AND. Mons. Luis Francisco Ladaria Ferrer, and the President of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, His Em.za Cardinal Kurt Koch. The signatories to the question are sent to Rome His Em.za Cardinal Rainer Maria Woelki, Archbishop of Cologne [cf. WHO], followed by Their Excellencies Rev.me Ludwig Schick, Archbishop of Bamberg [cf. WHO]; Konrad Zdarsa, Bishop of Augsburg [cf. WHO]; Gregor Maria Hanke, Bishop of Eichstatt [cf. WHO]; Stefan Oster, Bishop of Passau [cf. WHO]; Rudolf Voderholzer, Bishop of Regensburg [cf. WHO]; Wolfgang Ipolt, Bishop of Görlitz [cf. WHO].

.

The request for clarification addressed to Rome by seven bishops concerns an exemplary question: "Such a decision, It could be addressed by a single episcopal conference?». The answer, which it is neither a journalist nor be confined to disputes between secular party, it is easier than you just imagine. Indeed, seven bishops that the question they put, the answer to the same question are very familiar: a single episcopal conference, such an argument can not even dare to face him. What this escaped to all journalists and all lay with the tiara on his head that dipped in fish to comment on this story from them reduced to succulent "party struggle".

.

A quel point, His Em.za Cardinal Reinhard Marx, Archbishop of Monaco of Bavaria and President of the Episcopal Conference of Germany, lowering himself in the role of vestal virgin - role that however well poorly suited to its physical shape, which attracts more an obese brewer Bavaria instead of a Prince of the Church -, even dares to argue the 4 April in these terms: "I'm surprised by the initiative [Nrd. Seven German bishops], because the pastoral resource discussed in February by the Assembly of Bishops of Germany was only a draft and not a final text ».

.

The answer, for many who unfortunately have not understood or understood, other socket instead perhaps even for good, It should be read in three optical delicate linked to the foundations of ecclesiology, the foundations of dogmatic sacramental, to the fundamentals of canon law. And based on these three foundations, the reckless Vestal Virgin Bavarian should know that they had not even dare, to discuss such a thing, all the more so if they wished then change it into an eventual indecent Proposal addressed to the Holy See, if not worse, in a real ratification of the Episcopate of Germany, which before due to Martin Luther, Then centuries later because of the para-conciliar and post-conciliar, it is not always clear that they are Catholics only insofar as they are with Rome and especially in Rome. And these days, to speak to certain vestal virgins Teutonic concept of "Rome" and especially "in Rome», You run the risk of blowing away the dust from their surface to immediately emerge the Lutheran romanofobo hiding under.

.

The Vestal Virgin Bavarian, It should first of all know that for the Bishops gathered in the assembly is not permissible to discuss - to give a concrete example - the legitimacy of women's ordination, because a similar theme can not be discussed, it is a topic that has been closed once and for all through a precise document [cf. Priestly ordination, text WHO] which is expressed so definitive, What this implies that recourse to the second degree of the infallibility of the Roman Pontiff, which it is expressed by means of three different grades, so both definitional both definitive [cf. To defend the faith, § 2, text WHO]. Just as we can not argue on the possible legitimacy of abortion in certain special cases and restricted, equally applies to euthanasia, for adultery lawful and so to follow. Always to make some concrete examples: the bishops of any national conference can come together to discuss whether it is appropriate or not to join in marriage of same-sex couples, because the discussion has not really any reason to exist, because there is nothing to discuss. As it is not lawful to discuss whether the case would be better to reformulate the dogma of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary or of her Assumption into heaven in body and soul, because those who formulated those dogmas, He has formulated them well; and dogmatizzando these two mysteries of faith, It closed any possible future discussion, even for the restless German episcopate and large insidiatisi German experts like a cancer in the Second Vatican Council, within which, not having been able to play on the substance of the doctrines, They played on language style. And at the moment no one noticed, nobody understood the ambivalent language and not decided, where on the one hand and the other urges are not threatening to those who transgress it, would be a great gateway to the great de-future construction generated an unprecedented chaos, based on the destruction of the legitimate apostolic authority and the imposition in place of the authoritarianism of the flag theologians and laity with the tiara on his head.

.

And by the way that certain lay which it is not quite clear on their role within the Church, They are born to those movements that right under the eyes of the Blessed Paul VI and St. John Paul II have ended up giving life to real churches within the Church, complete with their own liturgies and catechisms, spreading wrong idea heretical and often based on non slight confusion they are doing on the common priesthood of the faithful acquired in Baptism, and the ministerial priesthood acquired the Sacred Order; and here I refer to the Neocatechumenal. To say nothing of the pneumatology of certain self-elettisi lay personal delegates the Holy Spirit, which it is not easy to clarify that charisms bestowed by divine grace, They are such only if recognized and regulated mainly by the Church, then practiced in the Church, for the Church and under the watchful eye of the Church; and here I refer to certain fringes of the charismatic and the Renewal in the Holy Spirit. All this has produced in the Church that very well explained at the time the Venerable Pope Benedict XVI, lamenting the "clericalization of the laity and the secularization of the clergy". Well, Perhaps these were the expected results and desired by the Second Vatican Council that addressed the discourse on the mission of the laity in the Church? If we read the decree on the laity in the Church, between its rows there will find nothing that can justify only distantly certain follies put standing by Kiko Arguello and Carmen Hernandez or by certain charismatic fringes [cf. Apostolate, text WHO]. Where do, therefore, some “monsters”? Soon said: the para-conciliar and post-conciliar of the great “interpreters” and “actuators”. Needless to say, if at the beginning of his pontificate, St. John Paul II, towards these phenomena degenerative state for the last decade, It used the same clarity and severity used towards those who favored the distribution of contraceptives in the countries of the African continent, we would never come after fifty years to the current situation today to the out of control, with ever higher numbers of pastors who ask the bishops to be removed from parishes where lay groups they have completely occupied for decades the scene, imposing on priests liturgical directives, catechetical and pastoral, except make his life a living hell if they dare raise objections; and the fierce and terrible are women, also called the priestesses. All this with no little certain aggravating: under Pope St. John Paul II, these movements was even allowed to open seminars and training future priests, which generally are not the priests the bishop, but the priests of the movement, formed according to the criteria of the movement, often formed even by the laity, and obedient in fact not the bishop, but the movement.

.

EH, There had occupied a little 'less of condoms and a little 'more than was triggered degenerative level within the Church!

PLAY ON SEMANTIC NUANCE IS AN OLD TECHNIQUE OF GERMAN THAT HAS GONE BIG AND SERIOUS DAMAGE TO THE UNIVERSAL CHURCH

.

Had it not been for some careful theologians, including Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani, It would be passed with subtle semantic nuances so-called "wild collegiality" in the Dogmatic Constitution on the Church Lumen Gentium, in open break with all previous magisterium and the tradition of the Church, thus changing Pietro, holder by divine mandate an absolute record, in a first among equals [the first among their own peer]. Discovered the time to catch, in the text of Lumen Gentium the numbers were well placed 22-24. After, Catechism of the Catholic Church, to n. 883 fu printed: "The college or body of bishops has no authority, if it is not united with the Roman Pontiff […] as its head "As such, this college "is also the subject of supreme and full power over the whole Church: this power can not be exercised without the consent of the Roman Pontiff ".

.

All that was concocted during the para-council, though never assimilated and ratified by the Vatican Council II, has been realized, however, in the large "interpreters" post-council and "actuators", including the claim to exercise a "wild collegiality" in open defiance to all the previous magisterium, the tradition of the Church, and to the teaching of the same Vatican II.

.

Cardinal Reinhard Marx, It has therefore clear in itself the Eucharistic mystery and the Eucharist as the "core of the mystery of the Church"? [cf. Ecclesia de Eucharistia, text WHO]. The teaching of the acts are in fact clear in affirming: "The Eucharist objectively creates a powerful bond of unity between the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Churches, which they have preserved the authentic and integral nature of the eucharistic mystery. At the same time, the emphasis on the ecclesial character of the Eucharist can become an important element also in dialogue with the Communities of the Reformation " [cf. The Sacrament of Charity, text WHO]. Well, reading these words, what will the Cardinal Reinhard Marx? Can you grasp that while those Orthodox are referred to as "Churches" separate, aggregations born from Lutheran schism are referred to as 'Community'? It is clear to Cardinal Reinhard Marx of difference for us Catholics that runs between Orthodox and Protestants? the Orthodox, separatisi from Rome for the "shape" of filioque inserted in the symbol of faith of Nicea-Constantinople, They enjoy apostolic succession and profess the substance of our faith, beyond different rites in their outer shape and accidental beyond various "shades". The Protestants, that preserve within itself a definite Christian heritage, They are not separated from us by external accidental or the "nuances", but so they are the deep substance of the sacraments and the very way of conceiving the Church, to read and to announce the Holy Gospel. In addition to, Protestants, do not recognize the primacy of Peter over the universal Church and its full and absolute power, do not recognize the Ministerial Priesthood, do not recognize the transubstantiation and the real presence of Christ in the Holy Eucharist. Or maybe you think, Cardinal Reinhard Marx, that all these are only semantic nuances? But if the Presiding Bishop of Germany has some gaps, in that case, instead of wasting time and perhaps even the Catholic faith in some theological faculties of Germany, could always visit one of our brave missionary sisters that with a few, short and simple words prepare children for First Communion in the most remote villages in Africa; and transmit the purity of the faith to Christi fideles certainly much better than some bloated dottoroni disaster of German theological faculties.

.

In the Holy Eucharist we are called to be perfect unity [cf. GV 17, 20-26], not in the fragmentary diversity of multiple pseudo-churches, because the Word of God founded only one true Church entrusted to Peter, assisted by the College of the Apostles [cf. Mt 13, 16-20]. Furthermore, I understand that in Germany you recite in the Profession of Faith: « … the one, saint, Catholic and Apostolic Church». And in German, if I'm not mistaken "the one'Followed to mean "one", "single", "Unique". This is to remember that Martin Luther destroyer of unity and communion, He was not scheduled yesterday and can not become an emblem of the "good reform" even today. Therefore, though some of his followers married to a Catholic spouse yearn to receive the Holy Eucharist, It must first be clear what is essentially and actually the Eucharist, then they have to undertake a proper catechesis, Finally abandoning errors heresiarch Luther and his followers and enter with a sincere act of faith in the Catholic communion. Only then, They can receive the Holy Eucharist, We remember that it is a free gift like all thanksgivings, it's not a “political right”.

.

perhaps it needed a priest and Italian theologian to remind members of the German episcopate filled with doctorates, and at the same level from clinically affected anthropological Overall Genius and the complex of the culturally superior race, what are the basic rudiments of the Catechism of the Catholic Church that in fact they have been shown not to know the substance of their talk and act?

HOW DO I TELL EYEWITNESS: GERMAN BISHOPS HAVE TRIED TO formalize WHAT ARE LONG TIME IN TOTAL contempt AT THE CHURCH TEACHINGS AND TO READ CANONICAL

.

In the past I stayed for several months in Germany and for some time in the Archdiocese of Monaco of Bavaria, already straight at the time Archbishop Reinhard Marx, created Cardinal then a few years later by Pope Benedict XVI. They are therefore an eyewitness of all their abhorrent abuses, to which I attended and which many times I refused to participate. Then I will offer a few examples, which is already reported in my book 2011 in the process of reprinting. Let's start from the Eucharist: in total disregard to what has clearly the Education Redmptionis mystery [cf. text WHO], at the Abbey of Sankt Bonifaz where I was staying, in the heart of the Bavarian capital, I was shocked to see people who were taking the Eucharist with their own hands and dipped in the chalice of the Precious Blood of Christ, unconcerned that here in the document cited, to n. 104 It is imposed: "The host into the chalice Do not allow yourself to communicating intinct itself". Also in the church of this abbey, I saw a woman, after the Holy Communion of the faithful, altar to purify the sacred vessels and a lay lay the Blessed Sacrament in the tabernacle, while the concelebrants were sitting on the presbytery. And yet: i have seen, churches in the archdiocese of Cardinal Reinhard Marx, Women who actually held the functions of the deacon, I saw lay proclaiming the Holy Gospel during Mass, and once, during a celebration, after a layman had proclaimed the Gospel, I saw him get on the presbytery, a woman dressed in a strange black robe that begins to make the homily. When the brother sitting next to me, mormorai: "But who is this ... what does?». He answered: "It's a vescovessa Lutheran, every so often we do these ecumenical exchanges ». At that point I stood up, I took off my neck Stole, I laid it on the chair and left way before the whole assembly ". then when, after Mass, the other priests asked why the foreign priest had gone away, they said: "Ah, never mind, it's a Roman priest, people closed!».

Not being able to submit to certain abuses, because where I was visiting was not allowed to celebrate Mass in private in some chapel, because I had to be the obligation of concelebrations coerced and put up with all their worst abuses, through the good offices of two elderly Jesuits in Rome, I went at the Faculty of Philosophy of the Jesuits of Monaco of Bavaria where I placed at the disposal one of their several chapels to celebrate Mass.

.

One of my main problems It was also and above all tied to the Most Holy Eucharist, because it was widespread use in the Bavarian parishes that Protestants, spouses or companions divorced united in a second marriage to the Catholic, They went quietly to receive Communion. All this is to clarify, that Roma specializes in pretending not to know and not to know, that Cardinal Reinhard Marx and the assembly of the German Bishops, except for seven that raised a question to the Holy See, they simply tried to "ratify" and then to "legalize" and "formalize" what is in fact already do for many years. All this while Roma continue to pretend not to know and not to know, committed as it is today to speak only of two basic mysteries of faith: refugees and migrants.

.

PETER WASHES HANDS AS SAYING Pontius Pilate: "TRY TO BE PLACED BETWEEN YOU AGREE"

.

And so, early May, a delegation of the German Bishops It met with S.It is. Mons. Luis Francisco Ladaria Ferrer, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. The delegation was composed by Their Eminence Cardinal Reinhard Marx, Archbishop of Monaco of Bavaria and chairman of the German Bishops' Conference, Cardinal Rainer Maria Woelki, Archbishop of Cologne, Their Excellencies Rev.me Felix Genn, Bishop of Münster, Karl-Heinz Wiesemann, Bishop of Speyer, Rudolf Voderholzer, Bishop of Regensburg, Gerhard Feige, Bishop of Magdeburg, Padre Hans Langendoerfer S.J. in his capacity as Secretary of the Episcopal Conference of Germany.

.

This meeting ended in a stalemate redolent indecency, through which we understand to what extent under this pontificate Rome is no longer the heart of the Church Mater et Magistra, but only a bored and helpless spectator. Indeed, the Pope Francis I, far from giving or to give an answer on an issue that touches the heart of the Church and the center of its unity, He did respond to appreciate "the ecumenical commitment of the German bishops and asks them to find, in a spirit of ecclesial communion, an outcome possibly unanimously ' [cf. WHO, WHO]. In conclusion, he sent them home after having told him in clear substance: "You try to agree among yourselves unanimously" (!?).

.

Needless to ask a question, although unfortunately I must put it: If the Bishops of Germany they had been at odds over key issues that haunt this pontificate, namely refugees and migrants, the Supreme Pontiff, He has been slow to give a clear and precise answer, if anything, well seasoned with one of his sour jokes against those he said variously "hard-hearted"?

.

I think that in two millennia, we can not afford "the luxury" to respond to Jesus Christ with the same question of Pontius Pilate:

.

«[…]”I came into the world: to bear witness to the truth. Who belongs to the truth listens to my voice”. Pilate says to Jesus: “And what is the truth?”» [GV 18, 37-38].

.

While the house is burning and everything collapses, while the lay people who have worn the tiara placed on their heads by the Supreme Pontiffs and while several journalists improvvisatisi ecclesiologists, theologians and canonists, reduce everything to a clash between the party and the conservative party of progressives, We take note that the Successor of Peter, just like Pontius Pilate, after being asked "but what is truth?», He responded to the bishops of Germany telling them: «And now, Try to make arrangements between you unanimously " (!?).

.

If the Bishops of Germany, unanimously They should agree to give Holy Communion to Protestants, what will happen tomorrow, if another episcopal conference, equally unanimous, decide to unite in marriage same-sex couples? What will happen if another, unanimously, decide that it is permissible to abort the fetus of a baby found suffering from malformation, not considering it right to give birth to a creature affected by imperfections? What will happen if another, unanimously, It decides that it is an authentic act of charity to end the life of a terminally ill and suffering that has no life expectancy? Since when, unanimity, It is a guarantee of sound doctrine and profound respect to revealed truth? These are the questions that, S. AND. Mons. Luis Francisco Ladaria Ferrer, who spoke on behalf of the Pope to the delegation of German Bishops, It should respond to all of us; and it should do it right in his capacity as Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, knowing that in the fourth century, the majority of the bishops, They had accepted the Arian heresy. Come May, in that case, an absolute majority did not constitute any guarantee of truth in deference to the mystery of Revelation? Here, This it must explain the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

.

These are the facts, it is not humoral opinions dictated by some kind of sympathy instincts, dislike or closing worse reasoning. And before the matter of objective fact, It consists of Peter who washes his hands like Pilate, I have no more to own more, because I know better than to say the least, but especially, and especially when it comes to Peter, It avoids above all, to say more than they should.

6 thoughts on "The German episcopate and Eucharistic intercommunion with Protestants. Peter washes his hands like Pilate: "Find a unanimous solution among you"

  1. In my youth sessantottino, I attended several times a Mass celebrated by one or two Catholic priests, without authorization as to the place, in poor seat pacifist association, where the secretary, Waldensian confession, There was very keen that celebrating Mass, and always devoutly he received Holy Communion. I strongly hope that the secretary is in heaven, because my human views no doubt he deserved much of certain bishops and cardinals. But it was an amazing person, and it can not possibly be taken as a paradigm of today's average Catholics and “evangelicals” environment. And in conclusion, despite my single and now distant experience, I agree with his father around Ariel.

  2. Bravo, Padre Ariel!… How they are always beautiful, the clarity of words, of faith and reason… reassure, and soothe…

    In this period we lay us, somehow, privileged, because, in general, We can speak more freely than you clerics. You understand, being careful not to say sfondoni, as do the card. Marx and his acolytes.

    On the other hand, I think that we too, Having regard to the situation, we are called to speak out. And’ On this basis, in reference to the blind guides that accompany “graciously” the flock towards the ravine, We can not say anything but… “Anathema sit”.

  3. Anyway, Mr. Marx Rehinard should explain why he wants “give Communion” in dogs and pigs (literally, the metaphor is absolutely real), in dogs and pigs yes, but NOT to Catholics who refuse to pay his exorbitant fee Ecclesiastical, collected on its behalf by the State so it abhorred that should not even afford to expose the crucifix in public office.

  4. I believe that our Holy Father shows, once again, to be consistent with his pastoral line would call at least inconsistent…

    I would note that the 15 November 2015, in his visit to the Roman evangelicals, after a harping of subjection “a theologian Cardinal Kasper!”, in responding to a question intercommunion says:
    – The Lord's Supper is sharing,
    – We acknowledge one baptism,
    – Evangelicals also ask the Lord, in their hearts, forgiveness of sins,
    – about the presence of Jesus in the Eucharist “We believe that the Lord is present there. Is present. You believe that the Lord is present. And what is the difference?”,
    – and although “I do not dare ever give permission to do this because it is not my responsibility”,
    – pututtavia “Talk to the Lord and go ahead”,
    – and he concludes with a cryptic “I dare not say more”!?!?!?

    If the chief shepherd, passes the idea that the sheep follow some’ their instinct and what they called their hearts, because the sheep should then follow the signs of the shepherds which are directly assigned and not dissipate over mountains and valleys?

  5. Dear don Ariel, abuse in the Communion under both kinds made separately by two different people saw him do in the Catholic Cathedral in Geneva, then in Switzerland, in 2007. The to take the Blessed Sacrament in the tabernacle by women (“extraordinary ministers”, I guess) they do often in my parish in Rome. How do you see, unfortunately the chaos is everywhere, and always in the name of '”people draw near”, I guess. German arrogance, suffice it to say that there are Italian monsignor in the Vatican curia who tease Brandmueller because he made a career in Rome as they turned away from Germany because filoromano. In other words, even in the Vatican among the Italian prelates some are fixed with “how beautiful the local Churches”, “we choose the bishops of the local churches or the people of God” etc.

  6. those holy words Article!

    I was thrilled by the story of his experience 'German’ but applause for her to get up and go away before the massacre!

    Thanks…and I recommend: never abandon the cassock! And’ a dress so elegant and, I would say, majestically.
    If they see so few now. But perhaps because there are no more people that they deserve…I don't know, it seems to be a choice of the priest, not to wear, but sometimes I have the ìimpressione that it is not their choice but the fact, note, who do not deserve.
