Hell exists and today more than ever is full of damned: "Strive to enter in at the strait gate"

HELL EXISTS AND TODAY overflows MORE THAN EVER OF THE DAMNED: "Strive FOR ENTERING THE DOOR CLOSE"

.

[…] the Word of God calls us to strive to enter through the narrow door, because "many, I tell you, seek to enter, but they will not succeed ". And as you understand, this Gospel, then that is the only and the true Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ, is very different from that watered down some priests with La Repubblica and L'Espresso arm in arm, that instead of reading the works of theology of the great Fathers of the Church read Micromega, that instead of keep on their desks The Imitation of Christ, keep us in plain sight of quell'ateo unrepentant books, and thin detractor and desecration of Catholicism, This has always been Umberto Eco.

Bernard of Chiaravalle
painting of St. Bernard of Clairvaux

Today, Saturday 20 August, the Church celebrates the memory Cistercian abbot Bernard of Clairvaux, born in 1090 and he died in the now remote year 1153. In the pre-festive Mass on Sunday, the liturgy of this twenty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time, It is offering to the People of God this page of the Gospel:

.

During that time, Jesus passed through towns and villages teaching, while he was on his way to Jerusalem. Someone asked him,: "Lord, there are few who are saved?». he said to them: "Strive to enter through the narrow gate, because many, I tell you, seek to enter, but they will not succeed. When the landlord got up and locked the door, Oh, left out, knocking at the door, saying: "Lord, sunny!”. But he will answer: "I do not know where you are". And you will say: "We ate and drank in your presence, and you taught in our streets". But he will declare: "Oh, I do not know where you are. Depart from me, all ye workers of evil!”. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, you instead driven out. They will come from east and west, from north and south and will recline at table in the kingdom of God. And here, some are last who will be first, and some are first who will be last " [LC 13, 22-30]

.

In 1145 He went up on the Chair of Peter a disciple of St. Bernard of Clairvaux [1090-1153], also named Bernardo, abbot of the Roman monastery of Saints Anastasio and Vincent near the Tre Fontane, born member of the noble family of origin of de Pisan 'Paganelli of Montemagno. The choice of the cardinals was opposed by Bernard of Clairvaux, who saw fit to warn them indicating to them that this was his disciple person very "innocent and simple" and therefore not appropriate for the government of the Church, in serious doctrinal and political situation that was to live in those years. Probably, in its own way "innocent and simple," so he was the future saint and doctor of the Church, if he had not realized that for that very reason the Cardinals chose that candidate, needing at that precise historical moment of a person who is weak, so easily manipulated by criminals who even then enveloped like vultures the sacred papal throne. The Church was in fact beset by serious problems that the previous Councils Pope Eugenius III [1145-1153] They had failed to quell. The fact is worth mentioning that the Lateran Council of 1123 sanctioned in their precise regulations canons against simony, respect of celibacy by the clergy and the proper ecclesiastical investitures; but everything had remained virtually a dead letter. In 1139 It was celebrated the Second Lateran Council that in its fees again condemned simony, wear and false confessions. Sixty-two years after the pontificate of Eugene III, preceduto dai council Lateranensi testing cited, It was celebrated in 1215 the Fourth Lateran Council, that after the introductory preamble condemns heresy Cistercian abbot Joachim of Fiore. But it is mainly the subsequent disciplinary canons on bishops and priests who leave nothing short of stunned, both for their gravity both for their topical, just as if they were passed between then and now "unnecessarily" VIII centuries. Complete with detailed descriptions of the Council indicates one by one all the main affectations and malvezzi from which the church had to be cleansed [cf. can. XIV-XIX]. To give only a brief essay of the disciplinary canons of the Fourth Lateran Council, about the bad manners of the clergy, suffice it to mention just one case among the different:

.

"We regret that not only some minor clerics, but even certain prelates, pass half the night in unnecessary and illegal chatter feasts, not to say the least. They then sleep the rest of the night, they wake up only late in the day with the singing of the birds, remain sleepy for the rest of the morning. There are others who celebrate the Holy Mass just four times a year. But there is worse yet: They not even want to assist. And if it happens that sometimes are present when Mass is celebrated, deserted silence of the choir and go out to talk to the laity, immersing at inopportune speeches and not paying any attention to celebrating the sacred mysteries. Absolutely we are forbid these and similar things on pain of suspension, commanding strictly by virtue of holy obedience, that they recite the divine office day and night, as God gives them the, with a zeal that is equal to their devotion " [IV Conc. years. can. XVII, Trad.. en. in care of the Author].

.

This is to clarify the state in which the Church poured before and then after the election of Eugene III, but especially to clarify how ever, as soon as he was gone up to the sacred throne, Bernard of Clairvaux hastened to send a complimentary good treaty for every Pope specially adapted to him. And now hear what he writes on the free pen Bernardo inspired by the grace of God. To begin, Bernardo, It invites Eugene III not to delude themselves about who was around ... and does it with these exact words:

.

"Can you show me one that has greeted your election without receiving money or without the hope of receiving? And the more they have professed your servants, the more they want to rule the roost in the Church ".

.

Words are written about 900 years ago, but I defy anyone to say that they are not current, Today perhaps more than yesterday, especially then if we add this other brushstroke is written by Saint Bernard that followed to warn Eugene III with this additional recommendation:

.

"Your brother bishops learn from you not to keep around zazzeruti boys or young men provocative. Between the heads covered by the Episcopal mitres it is very sick that bustle of sophisticated hairstyles » [CF. Bernard of Clairvaux, Treaty good for every Pope, Trad.. en. in care of the Author].

.

this warning, sweetened but clear, It is dedicated to St. Bernard of Clairvaux to certain current ecclesiastical, in particular to those diocesan bishops thundering behind the scenes towards me I am saying that ... "the priest from screanzata pen is obsessed with gay clergy and their so-called lobby gay » [cf. WHO]; and after having turned behind these criticisms peevish, they continue undeterred to ordain priests of subjects with overt structurally rooted homosexual tendencies [cf. WHO].

.

As the People of God, we are projected, since the Holy Spirit Pentecost, in an endless journey. This path moves from the present and looks to the future. We can not remain attached to the past that must not pass, nor live buildings immersed in memories past, as do those who typically and incorrectly defines as "traditionalist" Catholics. Certain, we should know our past well, because the work of the past has led to our present; and if we do not run for cover soon, this born of a past that was not always happy, It is likely to adversely affect our future. For as stated George Santayana, thinker of the twentieth century essay: "Who does not know history are doomed to repeat it".

.

I will try to explain with an example: when 40 years ago I was a teenager, before my eyes of thirteen I had anything but an example and model of bishops and priests. At the time,, an appalling mediocrity like today, still it was not even thinkable in Priestly College, let alone in the Episcopal College. Our priests, and the bishops in particular, They were very careful in pointing to the faithful what was good and what was bad, trying to separate the wheat from the chaff, or at least to indicate what was and what was wheat wheatgrass, remembering that one day, weeds, It would be tied in bundles and burned in the fire. Myer explaining carefully that wheat and weeds must sometimes grow together and that weeds can not be eradicated at once, if anything to eradicate this weed you run the risk of tearing together with it also only one good ear of corn; But the same day last harvest, the owner of the field would provide in each case to separate the good seed from the weeds destined to be uprooted and burned [cf. Mt 13, 24-30; 13, 36-43]:

.

"Let them both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers: “First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to burn; but gather the wheat into my barn” » [CF. Mt 13,30].

.

Today, many priests, pass us by in civilian clothes with La Repubblica and L'Espresso arm in arm; and their troubling theological deficiencies feel, even though, of the great intellectuals, Attentive readers because of the radical left magazine Micromega. On their desks flaunt books by Umberto Eco and happen to hear them when they speak magnify - even in their homilies - the worst philosophers and sociologists of the nineteenth and twentieth century anti-Christian, all with pernicious habit and above all boasted a display of a culture that unfortunately, de facto, they do not have …

... And so, just us priests established pastors and leaders of the People of God, We began to be often the first to mislead the people of God, teaching for example, that since God is love, at the Rendering forgives everyone and does not condemn anyone. And from our homilies, often used to make clumsy speeches of sociology rather than to proclaim the Gospel, disappeared words like mystery of evil, Satan, punishment, inferno, judgment of God, salvation and eternal damnation ...

.

To little it's worth, I ask for forgiveness from the people of God for those of my confreres who do not announce the Gospel and who have long been derogated from their fundamental task: the salvation of souls, the salvation of souls and their eternal salvation. For as many of you will remember, over the years the Church has made repeated MEA culpa asking forgiveness to all: Jews, to Muslims, the Orthodox, Protestants, the African animists, to the descendants of the indigenous peoples of Latin America ... in short, to all, own all, unless the Christi fideles and his faithful servants, ie not a few bishops and priests who in times far remote lived real situations and their white martyrdom within the Church. Indeed, you can be persecuted for the Church, but also in the Church, and they persecuted the Church often suffer harassment very worst of a martyrdom in hatred of the faith which almost always runs out in the space of a few seconds through a shot decided machete or a gunshot gunshot. White martyrdom lasts instead for all existence. And only God knows how cruel and uncontrollable are in the infliction of such martyrdoms priests or often even worse their bishops.

.

Several of those undergoing long white martyrdom They were then elevated to the altars, as in the paradigmatic case of St. Benedict Menni, who was vilified, dishonored and finally dragged into the criminal courts through serious false allegations created a table by brothers, nuns and various church. It deserves incidentally remembers that Benedict Menni was made the subject of an accusation very shameful: It has used violence to a poor demented hospitalized in a psychiatric structures he created, what gave birth to “Semillon case”, of which occupied the Criminal Court of Madrid. The case dragged on in the classrooms by the court 1895 to the 1902. After seven years, the event ended with the full acquittal of Benedict Menni and condemnation of his false accusers. Much worse was the smear campaign in the ecclesiastical court at the Holy Office, that came only three years later to declare the total groundlessness of the accusations. Accused and bitterly fought in the Hospitaller Order of St. John of God, by a group of diehard opponents ready for anything, preferred to resign rather than defend the 20 June 1912 from the office of superior general of the Order, to one year and a little more of his election. The incessant and heavy psychological pressure suffered over the years caused him in 1913 a paralysis attack that led to his death on 23 April 1914, at the age of 73 year old. In 1964 the general postulator of the Order opens the beatification process. In 1982 It has declared the heroic nature of his virtues, the 23 June 1985 Pope John Paul II proclaimed him Blessed and 21 November 1999 santo.

.

And yet, come to think, it was easier to proclaim holy, instead say during the beatification ceremony: "Blessed Benedict Menni, we will proclaim Blessed, and at the same time we ask for forgiveness for the evil that religious, Religious, priests and bishops their complaisant accomplices and protectors have caused you during your whole existence ". Never! Certain figures is easier beatificarle and canonizzarle, prudently leaving the terrible oppression they suffered well secreted in the files of their beatification and canonization, creating rather below the loving stories of santini sdolcinati that are suitable to the People of God, of course, not to arouse in it upsets with excessive realism bathrooms, but especially of truth, because it's true, Yes, that "the truth shall make you free" [cf. GV 8], but some master alchemist of clericalese might even believe that "too much freedom", the good People of God, would ultimately give the head. And who inhibits freedom, Always deny the divine truth, to impose the dictatorship of evil likely.

.

We can forget what happened on that of Sicily to Father Luigi Orione, where in 1908 the earthquake in Reggio Calabria and Messina caused about 90.000 dead? Father Luigi Orione came to the aid of the survivors and numerous orphans, and with Father Annibale Maria Di Francia - with whom he will later elevated to the altars in 2004 - They formed the two pillars of future reconstruction. After that terrible tragedy began to arrive from Italy and from abroad, especially by Catholics North America, Canada and Australia, large sums of money that came on quite a few fantasies, mire and large appetites in the local clergy. They were then prevented from two problems at once: robberies by clergy and accommodation by the same grandchildren, family and friends of friends within an operation with charitable sums of money to many zeros. The Holy Pontiff Pius X appointed Father Luigi Orione Vicar General of the Archdiocese of Messina, where for three years he carried out his mission among enormous difficulties and as many enormous suffering. Suffice it to say that the diocesan clergy, finding himself unable to get their hands on great cake of money, contemptuously nicknamed him: "Vatican Commissioner». Nothing, however, were the despise and slander, compared with the attempted poisoning that Father Luigi Orione suffered through a barber hired by his enemies. In 1910, while serving in a very noticed his ministry, attentive first to hinder riding of money dishonest during the reconstruction, when cutting the beard he was infected by the barber with syphilis virus. A few days later, on his study table and working, some anonymous hand deposited a book-tribute, it was a medical book entitled: "How is Syphilis". If anything was needed confirmation of what at that moment it was impossible to trust the local clergy before such economic interests, Father Luigi Orione called in Messina as close several of his fellow employees, all coming from outside and thus quickly nicknamed by local clergy as "foreign colonizers' [Please refer to an old article 2004 on The Catholic Civilization, WHO].

.

It is much easier to take a theologian priest persecuted all his life for being a tireless servant of the Church and defender of the holy Catholic doctrine, ruled and made subject to ostracism within the Church and of ecclesiastical academic pest-ridden world for half a century of modernist heretics, and finally elevate him to the rank of Cardinal ultra octogenarian, because it costs much less, compared to admitting: "We ask forgiveness, because you were right, we made a mistake ". And I will tell: who has accepted some of these targeted purples to wash certain ecclesiastical consciences, often in his own way he was wrong. In their place I would have acted otherwise, for example, answering: the dignity of Cardinal, give it to a fifty or a sixty, not to me that I have over eighty years old. All I want is far less: I to ask my forgiveness for all you have done to me in my lifetime. And what I will not ask for me - to which your excuses not interested in anything - I ask only for yourself, for the eternal salvation of your souls, They can not wash or be washed by putting a purple him to a poor man walking towards the ninety, because purple is also dress the whores, but at least they are much more consistent and honest compared to certain ecclesiastical.

.

This is to reiterate that the Church seems to be able to ask forgiveness only to Jews, to Muslims, the Orthodox, Protestants, the African animists, to the descendants of the indigenous peoples of Latin America and so on, but not to his sons, least of all his servants devoted and tireless protectors ...

.

The words written by Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, and here quoted at the beginning, today descend more than ever in the divine word of the Gospel of this liturgy of the twenty-first Sunday of Ordinary Time, in which the Word of God does not tell us: “I love without judgment and punishment”. The Word of God, when absolute and exclusive way tells us: "I'm away, truth and life " [cf. GV 14], with those words tells us that he does not tolerate the denial of his way, and the salvific plan of life that he has given us through the mystery of redemption through His incarnation, Death and Resurrection; not tolerate the lie, It does not tolerate a life that does not conform to him and to his announcement. Christ said, in a clear and absolute: I am. He did not say: "There are various ways to reach the truth and my life". And this with all due respect to certain theologians of false ecumenism which imbued with dramatic ignorance do not want to hear even say the word “absolute”, that theology has a specific meaning, not to be confused with the political absolutism, as do many of our modern theologians or modernists. In his I am, Christ thus it presents us with the purity of the absoluteness of faith, not the vagueness of faith, no religious relativism. He says I am, does not state: "I could be, but it is said that it is always I, it could also be Buddhas, Mohammed, Luther ... "

.

The Word of God says: "Since I am Infinite Mercy, you can do what you want and how you want, because so much, the reckoning, I forgive all ". The Word of God does not say that "there is no hell", anything: there recalls the existence over and over again throughout his entire preaching, even putting us on notice that in that place of eternal damnation "will be weeping and gnashing of teeth" [cf. Mt 7,13-14; 8,11; 7,21; 25,31-46. MC 10,43; LC 17,27-30; etc ..].

.

The Word of God does not say that “the devil is an allegory”, or says - as I hear more priests never called by their bishops, or more professors never fired by the Holy See from pontifical universities - that Satan "is a mythic-symbolic translation of the old man's ancestral fears", as he claimed by Karl Rahner and as now claim its poisonous grandchildren now in power. To affirm this is blasphemy and heresy, is poison fed to our faithful, because in that case the first mendacious legends would just those written in the Gospel, where the first miraculous intervention of Jesus Christ is the liberation of one possessed [CF. MC 1, 23-26]. The Gospels tell of how Jesus Christ cast out demons [CF. MC 1,21-28; 5,1-20; 9, 14-29, etc..] and how to give mandate to its apostles to cast out demons in his name [CF. MC 9, 38; 16,17-18; etc.. ], He urges them not certain to teach his people that the Devil is an allegorical legend, because in that case it would follow immediately afterwards another legendary allegory: the mystery of original sin, until the complete de-construction of the deposit of our faith ...

.

This is to say how today more than ever we need to urgently instruct the living members of the People that God has entrusted to us, explaining that the Word of God calls us to strive to enter through the narrow door, because "many, I tell you, seek to enter, but they will not succeed " [CF. LC 13, 22-30]. And as you understand, this Gospel, then that is the only and the true Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ, is very different from that watered down some priests with La Repubblica and L'Espresso arm in arm, that instead of reading the works of theology of the great Fathers of the Church read Micromega, that instead of keep on their desks Imitation of Christ [The Imitation of Christ], keep us in plain sight of quell'ateo unrepentant books, and thin detractor and desecration of Catholicism, This has always been Umberto Eco.

.

And if all of you Christi fideles the door will close, for us priests, that much more, and we had received from Christ in gifts of grace and therefore in responsibility, the door will be closer still, because Christ has entrusted to our hands the Holy Mystery of his Body and his Blood; because our people has given his people to guard and feed, not to disperse, least of all to mislead with thoughts and with fashionable thinkers who have always been the denial of Christ the Good Shepherd who is the door of the sheepfold [CF. GV 10, 1-21]. And the meaning of the "door of the sheep" should be remembered - or perhaps worse explained from scratch - in some of our priests went out after years of "training" from our most holy seminars, when the doors of their parish churches attack posters, various leaflets and ads, often even religious. The door of the Church has a theological significance, metaphysical, the door of the Church is the symbol of Christ the Good Shepherd: "I am the door of the sheep" [CF. GV 10, 1-21]. How will thus allow, breed of villains, to put on Christ the Good Shepherd Gate Sheep, posters stuck with pins that advertise dance competitions and social dinners ?

.

Christ God invites us to go through a narrow door, from which many will not be able to pass, because the infinite mercy of God goes hand in hand with his infinite justice, and a divine mercy without justice is not even conceivable; and if someone conceives, then it does not announce the Gospel, but announces another, ie it is not Catholic, but it belongs to another religion, a false religion.

About isoladipatmos

16 thoughts on "Hell exists and today more than ever is full of damned: "Strive to enter in at the strait gate"

  1. About Bernardus Claravallensis, I remember the beautiful encyclical of Pius XII:
    http://w2.vatican.va/content/pius-xii/it/encyclicals/documents/hf_p-xii_enc_24051953_doctor-mellifluus.html
    and the exhortation contained in it to increase every day more devotion to the Mother of God high, that today the Church venerates as the Queen:
    “11 October 1954, S. S. Pius XII instituted the feast of the Queenship of Mary, to be celebrated every year around the world on the day 31 May; He was transferred to 22 August, Assumption day eighth, to underline the relationship of the royalty of Mary with her bodily glorification.
    ….
    ..Virgin Augusta and Mistress, Regina, Lady, hide me under your wings, custodiscimi, so do not rejoice against me Satan, who sows ruins, nor triumphs against me the wicked adversary " (S. Efrem).”
    http://mobi.santodelgiorno.it/beata-vergine-maria-regina/

    The crisis of faith is also a consequence of the increasing devotion to Our Lady, increasingly neglected and overshadowed by modern theologians, by shepherds, preachers ….. and also from the meetings.

    1. It can also be said the opposite. Devotion to the Blessed Virgin was born loving his Son, having faith in Him.

      I believe that only with the absence of this love for the Savior can explain the current situation of the Church. The sloppiness of the clergy, religious indifference, devotion to the saints which increasingly diminishing.

      The prayer taught by the Angel at Fatima is still relevant:

      My God, I believe, love, I hope and I love You. I ask pardon for those who do not believe, do not worship, do not hope and do not love.

  2. Unfortunately the white martyrdom is for us believers, Sometimes, during certain homilies, we would like to stand up and say officiant round “but heresies is saying…”, but we are in God's house and swallow the pill.
    The trouble is that you do not do either of catechesis or meetings of “community” where to discuss and debate. There is also to say that many priests are overworked, our needs to keep up with three very populated countries thanks to the cursed “pastoral units” that , in my view, It ended to disperse the flock. The Lord that, in this period, I think, is silent, We are watching us to see how far we want to go. Thanks for what you do, I always read with much interest your articles. The Lord bless you.

  3. Of, Father expensive … she touched her finger on the problem and we also filmed the inside: I have to put up with a priest who in his homilies (to do as she says, the intellectual) He cites Umberto Eco and Massimo Cacciari, and this second is very fashionable in our diocesan institute of religious sciences, where is that “intellectuals” atheists and non-believers are invited to donate their wisdom distilled …
    … we do not speak of the course that was set up on the word of Cardinal Martini (!?) or his friend Bose, Father expensive Ariel, that certain Enzo Bianchi …
    and Higher Institute of Religious Sciences, to clarify, It is in the same large complex where also lies the bishop, that like the three monkeys … does not see, he does not hear, does not speak …
    and not tell other, because maybe she even understood where I write and those who speak …

  4. Yesterday, the day dedicated to the Queenship of Mary, Bishop Emeritus of Civitavecchia and Tarquinia, mons.Girolamo Grillo returned to the house of the Father. Certainly a sign of “predilection” from the Queen of the Church, the family and peace.
    Thanks for teaching monsignor who gave us, from initial concerns about the appearance of blood and tears to the living and painful witness against ridicule and disbelief of the world…..
    Holy Mother of God, intercede for us sinners…

    Of course not!
    No one can say that Hell is full, no one can say that it is empty, but, above all, no one can say that there is.

    In the title of the article it has been made use of a τόπος (topos), or a “hyperbole”, all in the sense more purely tied to the Greek etymology of the words.

    Time ago, during a homily, to make the idea I said: « … in times like these, not only Hell is not empty, but whether it was a physical space, like the one illustrated by Dante, in such a case they would have to buy more space and expand the premises to make way for the damned ".

    I'll explain. And’ as when in a speech happen to use hyperbolic expressions similar: « … sicuramente tu finirai all’inferno!”». Or, as recently he told me my brother during a serious / playful speech: «… Because God is infinite mercy, you will get away with the two thousand years of purgatory ".

    If we pass dall'iperbole rhetoric instead strictly theological discourses, which as such require extreme precision, in which case it is fair to say – for instance – Judas Iscariot could be Hell, considering what he did, the way it did and the seriousness of what he did; but no one can say with confidence that he is condemned to eternal punishment of the damned. We can assume, hypothetically, but without any minimum certainty. None of us can in fact know what happened between Judas and God in the space of those two or three minutes in which the rope that was close to him took away the life neck. And by the grace of God, human space, ground, physical two or three minutes, is a time “very long”, in which God, that can accommodate the full and perfect repentance of the sinner and redeem even in the last seconds of breath.

    In certain circumstances always I remember an answer given by St. John Vianney two parents grieve for the death of his son who had committed suicide by jumping off a bridge into a river.
    The Curé of Ars was silent, absorbed, Then he told his parents: "Go in peace, because the grace and mercy of God, in the space that goes from the water bridge, He was able to take it back and save him from eternal damnation ".

    This is not a truth of faith, but of a reassurance given by a Holy, which, however, he had all the best reasons, especially theological and doctrinal, to provide that reassurance.

    Certain, if we think about what was the twentieth century, and if we consider the conditions in which we have reached the Third Millennium, it is very difficult to imagine an empty Inferno, but, at the same time, no one can claim either – if not for hyperbole – it's super crowded.

    I recently severely reprimanded and then correct a person who told me about a family member of a soul as surely doomed to eternal damnation. Telling in this regard that during the hospitalization had refused the chaplain's visit, He had reiterated that it had always been an atheist; in physical pain he had continued more than ever to curse and, before losing consciousness, He had taken care to specify that he wanted to be buried without funeral obsequies, that no one had dared to take him to church or even put a simple cross over his coffin.

    Followed to tell this person: «… the night he lost the use of speech and, after she gasped all night, on the morning he died ".

    Reproachfully I said: "E tu, Perhaps you know what happened, between the heart and the conscience of this man and God, during those long hours of agony?».

    And I recommended: "Rather than take it for certain and obvious his damnation, pray for his soul and make celebrate Masses in suffrage of the deceased. Anyone who tells you, indeed, that following a repentance, It occurred even in the last minutes of life in what is the inscrutable inner relationship between the heart and the conscience of man and God, He is now in Purgatory?».

  6. A friend of mine was left by her husband (They married in Church, no nullity). Now after two years of solitude he met at a party a wonderful man (she says), practicing Catholic, generous, It does a thousand things Volunteer. in short, he told me that she would like to get involved with this man and get married together and having children to educate them in a Christian. I sought advice. I at first I would have said I did not had to do absolutely because there is still standing sacramental marriage. But I knew from the recent Synod and the subsequent apostolic exhortation came out interesting news, Also described by Patmos. I then suspended the proceedings, I have not given answers and I thought in my turn to advise me with you. What to say to my friend?

    1. Caro Tito.

      These situations are always complex, but above each of them is a different case, a human case apart.
      a woman – or vice versa a man – not liable, as often it happens when you leave / a by wife.
      But it, before a wedding with all the trappings of validity, It is not referred to the possibility of “rebuild their lives”.
      In addition to, a Catholic as you say "practitioner, generous, he does a thousand things Volunteer », if it is really not that put you in a situation like this; and if one puts, then it is not so “practitioner” and “generous” and its activities “voluntary” leave the time they are.
      Be “practitioners” and “generous”, involves also have the ability to give – generously – to what you can not have.

      Sacramental marriage, if fully valid, It does not provide for the possibility of divorce or remarriage.
      Is this, any Catholic, should know, especially if "practitioner, generous, he does a thousand things Volunteer ».

  7. ” A woman - a man, or vice versa - is not liable, If as often happens is left / to the wife.”
    FALSE!
    That marriage would not have failed if it had been actually lived the way God!!! I hope that the woman during married life have participated in’ Eucharist at least every Sunday, for example, or have recited the Holy Rosary every day: Surely not’ so', too easy to shrug off the blame to others addossandole: NEGLIGENCE THERE’ AND REMAINS, every failed marriage and’ a victory of the devil tells the Virgin and that everyone take his Cross, and’ through the Cross that becomes stronger and acquires the strength to bear it!!!

    1. I get it!

      Therefore, if a woman 50 years in full menopause, It is abandoned by her husband overnight, because he decided to run away with a girl 25 year old, the fault of the woman, which if anything has not recited the Holy Rosary every day?
      And I do not go well in the answer, why should I for rigor – and especially for theological and moral rigor – angry not just for what she said …
      Anyway, if this is the inner spirit with which she recites the Holy Rosary, know that the Blessed Virgin Mary is likely to cause, with his Avemarie, only hives.

  8. Dear Father Ariel if that woman 50 years in full menopause had recited the Holy Rosary every day, and he did the Eucharist with abitudinarietà 'would surely have the right strength to endure, but above all the gift to understand that weight was a burden that God allowed through which God accepted that suffering and the prayer for the conversion of the man blinded by the passion of the flesh. Dear Father Ariel last Tuesday I went to San Giovanni Rotondo It is written in the crypt of St. Pio of prayer and suffering as a man who confessed from morning to night: Today my dear father Ariel in neo-church does not speak more 'sinful to confess of suffering to accept prayer to donate ...

    1. Its doctrinal approach, It is not Catholic; his moral approach, It is not Catholic; but especially, his reasoning, It is not Christian. Nor is the spirit of anyone, with inhuman superficiality, It presumes to deal with his own personal "traffic laws"Tragedies and human suffering. Go and read the Salvifici doloris St. John Paul II, that then we'll talk, about the way, but above all the modesty with which we must deal with the drama of human suffering ...

      I brought a concrete example of a woman betrayed and abandoned, not his fault, by spouse. And for all response, She, take this example and changes the victim guilty, presuming that maybe, the Lady, has not acted properly the Holy Rosary.
      Re-read his lines, look at what he wrote, Then try to realize how serious he said.

      In his lines it is enclosed, against the other: an erroneous conception of original sin and its consequences, an erroneous conception of the mystery of evil, a total lack of knowledge of what is the relation of God to man's free. The grace of God, indeed, if proposed, but does not impose.

      Now, in which case - and mind you, that mine is just an example - you were attacked by a prostate cancer, when he was to be - always for example - with a metastasized cancer, I will come to visit her and, with a coolness from accountant, as she will be taken from all the side effects of treatment, I will tell you these exact words: "If she had recited the Holy Rosary every day, and he did the Eucharist with abitudinarietà he would have definitely the right strength to endure, but above all the gift to understand that weight was a burden that God allowed ... ".
      So I will tell you the exact same words with which, She, assumed to play with the suffering and the pain of others, giving without restraint and Christian modesty sentences taken from Manual of general accounting.
      I'm sorry, but the mystery of Salvation and Redemption, It works in another way.

      So thank God that Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, today, It is inside the tomb, because if the Holy miracle-worker had still been alive, when she was presented before him to mention the word "neo-church", after having received two salutary slap she would be cast out between screams and profanity uttered in dialect by the Holy Capuchin Friar. Why was this, what was necessary Saint Pio of Pietrelcina, one of the greatest mystics in the history of the Church, unfortunately changed, today, those like her, in a middle ground between a "hero" and a "holy card schmaltzy".
      Imagine, say to St. Pio of Pietrelcina ... "neo-church", or affirm, before the drama of a woman abandoned by her husband, that everything had happened because maybe she had not played enough rosaries and with sufficient zeal …
      St. Pio of Pietrelcina would turn into a Bengal tiger!
