"ARE DISTURBED YOUR HEART" [GV 14,1]. Proclamations ON “CHURCH IN OUTPUT” THE POSTER OF PROCLAMATION OF FAITH OF CARDINAL GERHARD LUDWIG MULLER

.

Many now wonder why the Church still exists if the bishops themselves prefer to act as a political rather than as teachers of the faith to proclaim the Gospel. The look is not to dwell on side issues, but it is more than ever necessary for the Church to assume its own responsibility. Every human being has an immortal soul, that his death separates from the body, But the hope of the resurrection of the dead. Death ultimately makes man's decision for or against God. Everyone has to deal with the personal judgment immediately after death.

… the distant future or very close?

More than a "Church in output", at times our Holy Mother looks like a "Church in liquidation 'to seasonal sales.

.

The Fathers de The island of Patmos, sharing the highest consideration that all have towards the Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller, They were primarily affected by an expression which for them is a lament traded for some time and with increasing frequency among members who carry the sacred priesthood, fulfillment of which they have repeatedly regretted exchanging precisely the phrase that stands out in the first lines of the text written by the former prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith: "Today, many Christians no longer know even the basics of the faith".

.

Those who the so-called "field hospital Church" live there, often carrying emergency services to the emergency room where they arrived all the different cases and often more severe, They must face each other every day with a growing number of faithful who no longer know the fundamentals of the Catholic faith, who have no right perception of the sacraments of grace, who for years they do not confess and who can not confess, who do not know the prayers. But above, Every day, You are faced with the faithful in terribly high number speak and live the worst language of this world with total ease. abortion: "Well, a girl of sixteen who has a hiccup, You may perhaps become a mother at that age?». Life and health: "Why not give a gentle and dignified death to a person who suffers from an incurable disease, It serves perhaps something to make her suffer needlessly?». affective Life: "We were the parents, the first to recommend to our children, before getting married, going to live with for a few years, sperimentassero so if they really go well together, or maybe the marriage must be a leap in the dark?».

.

These, as many of the faithful who reason well on the different moral and spiritual aspects, are people who generally do not confess, because first of all say they have no sins to confess, But they go to receive Holy Communion, without the knowledge and clear perception of what is really and truly the Most Holy Eucharist.

.

Only these few introductory words They are sufficient to clarify what the Fathers de The island of Patmos have welcomed and much appreciated this essay containing the words which have long you are repeating each other with great sorrow and regret: Today you must start at one side with the missions for a new evangelization of our populations, the other with the fundamentals of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller

Faced with an increasingly widespread confusion teaching of faith, many bishops, priests, religious and laity of the Catholic Church invited me to give public witness to the truth of revelation. It is the responsibility of its pastors to lead men entrusted to them the way of salvation, and this can only happen if such pathway is known and if their first pass through it. About he warned the Apostle:

.

"In fact, I sent you, first, what I also received " (1 Color 15,3).

.

Today many Christians no longer know even the basics of the faith, with a growing danger of not finding the path that leads to eternal life. However, proper task of the Church is to lead people to Jesus Christ, light of the nations [see LG 1]. In this situation, one wonders how to find the right orientation. According to John Paul II, The Catechism of the Catholic Church is "a sure norm for teaching the faith" [A deposit of faith IV]. It was written for the purpose of strengthening our brothers and sisters in faith, Mass faith severely tested by the "dictatorship of relativism".

.

The

Triune God, REVEALED IN JESUS ​​CHRIST

.

The epitome of faith of all Christians It lies in the confession of the Holy Trinity. We have become disciples of Jesus, children and friends of God, through baptism in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. The difference of the three divine persons in the unit [254] It marks a fundamental difference in their faith in God and in the image of man over other religions. Recognized Jesus Christ, the ghosts disappear. He is true God and true man, born of the Virgin Mary by the Holy Spirit. The Word made flesh, the Son of God is the only Savior of the world [679] and the only mediator between God and men [846]. For this, the first letter of John refers to one who denies his divinity as the antichrist [1 GV 2, 22], because Jesus Christ, Son of God, eternity is a unique being with God, his father [663]. It is with clear determination to addressing the reappearance of ancient heresies that in Jesus Christ saw only a good person, a brother and a friend, a prophet and an example of moral life. He is first of all the Word that was with God and is God, Son of the Father, who took our human nature to redeem us and who is to judge the living and the dead. Him alone we worship in unity with the Father and the Holy Spirit as the one true God [691].

.

(II)

THE CHURCH

.

Jesus Christ founded the Church as a visible sign and instrument of salvation, which subsists in the Catholic Church [816]. He gave to His Church, who "it was born from the pierced heart of Christ who died on the cross"[766], a sacramental structure that will remain until the Kingdom is fully achieved [765]. Christ, chief, and believers as members of the body have a mystical person [795], for this reason the church is holy, because Christ, one mediator, It has established on earth as a visible organization and continually sustains [771]. Through it the redemptive work of Christ becomes present in time and space with the celebration of the Blessed Sacrament, especially in the Eucharistic Sacrifice, The holy Mass [1330]. The Church transmits with the authority of Christ's divine revelation, 'Which extends to all the elements of doctrine, including morals, without which the saving truths of the faith can not be preserved, explained, or observed ' [2035].

.

III

ORDER SACRAMENTAL

.

The Church is in Jesus Christ, the universal sacrament of salvation [776]. It does not reflect itself but the light of Christ, shining on his face, and this can only happen when the reference point is not the opinion of the majority nor the spirit of the times, but rather the Truth revealed in Jesus Christ, who entrusted to the Catholic Church the fullness of grace and truth [819]: He himself is present in the sacraments of the Church.

.

The Church is not an association created man, whose structure can be changed by its members at will: it is of divine origin. "Christ is himself the source of ministry in the Church. He instituted, It gave her authority and mission, orientation and goal " [874]. Even the Apostle's admonition is valid now that cursed is everyone who proclaim another gospel, "Even ourselves, or an angel from heaven " [Maybe 1,8]. The mediation of the faith is inextricably linked to human credibility of its announcers: they, in some cases, They have abandoned those who had been entrusted to them, turbandoli and severely damaging their faith. For them it realizes the word of Scripture: "Do not endure sound doctrine, but, to hear something, It will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own whims " [2 Tim 4,3-4].

.

The task of the Magisterium of the Church with regard to the people of God is that of "]safeguard it from deviations and failures "so that it can" profess no mistake the true faith " [890]. This is especially true of the seven sacraments. The Holy Eucharist is "the source and summit of all Christian life" [1324]. The Eucharistic Sacrifice, in which Christ draws us into his sacrifice on the cross, It is aimed at the most intimate union with Him [1382]. For this reason the Holy Scripture warns about conditions for receiving Holy Communion: "Whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord unworthily, It shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord " [1Color 11, 27], So "anyone conscious of a grave sin, It must receive the sacrament of Reconciliation before coming to communion " [1385]. From the internal logic of the sacrament it is understood that the divorced and remarried civilly, whose sacramental marriage before God is still valid, as well as all those Christians who are not in full communion with the Catholic faith and also all those who are not properly prepared, do not receive the Holy Eucharist fruitfully [1457], because in this way it does not lead them to salvation. Put it in evidence it corresponds to a work of spiritual mercy.

.

The recognition of sins in the holy confession at least once a year is one of the precepts of the Church [2042]. When believers do not confess their sins more receiving absolution, it makes vain the salvation brought by Christ, In fact, he became man to redeem us from our sins. The power of forgiveness, that the Risen Christ gave the Apostles and their successors in the Episcopate and in the Priesthood, take away grave and venial sins committed after Baptism. The current practice of confession shows that the conscience of believers is not sufficiently formed today. The mercy of God is given to us, in order to fulfill his commandments to conformaci to his holy will and not to avoid the call to conversion [1458].

.

"It is the priest who continues the work of redemption on earth" [1589]. The order, which gives the priest a "sacred power" [1592], is irreplaceable because through it Jesus becomes sacramentally present in his saving action. The priests voluntarily choose celibacy as a "sign of such a life" [1579]. It is the gift of himself to the service of Christ and His coming Kingdom. In order to validly conferring ordination in the three degrees of this sacrament, The Church recognizes herself as bound to the choice made by the Lord himself, "For this reason the ordination of women is not possible" [1577]. In this respect, talk about a discrimination against women clearly demonstrates a misunderstanding of this sacrament, it does not affect an earthly power but the representation of Christ, the Bridegroom of the Church.

.

IV

THE MORAL LAW

.

Faith and life are inseparable, because faith without works carried out in the Lord died [1815]. The moral law is the work of divine wisdom and leads man to the promised beatitude [1950]. As a result, the "divine and natural law shows man the way forward to do good and attain his end" [1955]. Its observance is necessary for all people of good will to attain eternal salvation. In fact, he who dies in mortal sin without repentance will remain forever separated from God [1033]. This has practical consequences in the lives of Christians, between which it is appropriate to recall those most frequently neglected today: [cf. 2270-2283; 2350-2381]. The moral law is not a burden, but part of that liberating truth [cf. Jn 8,32] through which the Christian along the way of salvation and should not be relativised.

.

The

ETERNAL LIFE

.

Many now wonder why the Church still exists if the bishops themselves prefer to act as a political rather than as teachers of the faith to proclaim the Gospel. The look is not to dwell on side issues, but it is more than ever necessary for the Church to assume its own responsibility. Every human being has an immortal soul, that his death separates from the body, But the hope of the resurrection of the dead [366]. Death ultimately makes man's decision for or against God. Everyone has to deal with the personal judgment immediately after death [1021]: or you will still require a purification, or the man will go directly to the heavenly bliss and will be allowed to see God face to face. But there is also the terrible possibility that a person, until the end, remains in contradiction with God: finally rejecting His love, it "shall immediately damned forever" [1022]. "It gave, who created us without us, He did not choose to save us without us' [1847]. The eternity of the punishment of hell is a terrible reality, which - according to the testimony of Holy Scripture - concerns all those who "die in a state of mortal sin" [1035]. The Christian crosses the narrow gate, "Because the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter " [Mt 7,13].

.

To keep silent about these and other truths of faith, or teach otherwise It is the worst deception against which the Catechism admonishes vigorously. This is the ultimate test of the Church, or 'a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems, the price of apostasy of the truth " [675]. It is the Antichrist's deception, that is, "with all the seductions of iniquity, to the detriment of those who perish because they received not the love of the truth and be saved " [2Ts 2,10].

.

APPEAL

.

As workers in the vineyard of the Lord, we all have a fundamental responsibility to remember these truths holding on to what we have received the same. We want to give courage to walk the path of Jesus Christ with determination, so as to obtain eternal life by following His commandments [2075].

.

We ask the Lord to let us know how great is the gift of the Catholic faith, through which opens the door to eternal life. "For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels " [MC 8,38]. Therefore we are committed to strengthening the faith confessing the truth that is Jesus Christ himself.

.

The warning that Paul, the apostle of Jesus Christ, by his collaborator and successor Timothy is addressed in particular to us, bishops and priests. He wrote:

.

«Ti scongiuro davanti a Dio e a Cristo Gesù, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: proclaims the Word, insist upon and out of season, do warn, reproaches, encourage through all patience and teaching. The day will come, indeed, when they will not endure sound doctrine;, but, to hear something, men's masters according to surround their whims, refusing to listen to the truth to get lost behind the Fables. But you shall carefully, endure the sufferings, do your work of Gospel announcer, fulfill your ministry " [2 TM 4,1-5].

.

may Mary, Mother of God, implorarci the grace to hold fast to the confession of the truth of Jesus Christ without wavering. United in faith and prayer,

4 thoughts on ""Do not be troubled heart" [GV 14,1]. From proclamations on “Church output” the poster proclaims the faith of Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller

  1. Il manifesto del Card. Muller è la riproposizione della vera Dottrina Cattolica, che è stata consegnata da Dio, che rivela, alla Sua Chiesa, agli Apostoli che l’hanno trasmessa alle successive generazioni, giungendo fino a noi, come recita il Canone Romano, la prima Preghiera Eucaristica, che dovrebbe essere recitata spesso, and not infrequently, durante le SS. Messe festive. Questa iniziativa dell’esimio cardinale giunge a proposito a poco più di cinquant’anni dalla pubblicazione delCredo del Popolo di Dio”, la Professione di Fede di Paolo VI. Sarebbe stato auspicabile e desiderabile che una simile iniziativa fosse stata portata avanti dal Papa attuale, specie alla fine dell’ultimo Anno della Fede. In mancanza di ciò e in tempimi si consenta di scriverlodi vera e propria emergenza nella Chiesa, ben venga il Manifesto della Fede dell’ex Prefetto della Congregazione per la difesa della Dottrina della Fede.

  2. Father Ariel Caro

    Nella dichiarazione congiunta firmata da Papa Francesco e dal leader maomettano nel quale si legge: ” Il pluralismo e le DIVERSITADI RELIGIONE, di colore, di sesso, di razza e di lingua sono una sapiente volontà divina”,

    Pensare che Dio possa aver, non solamente permesso, ma anche deciso di manifestarsi in migliaia di religioni diverse mi fa davvero male e vedo in queste parole l’esaltazione di un misero teismo senza Cristo.
    Sono affermazioni che chiedono preghiera perché offendono la Croce e la firma del Papa sotto questa frase é una responsabilità esclusivamente sua perché nessuna persona con un QI minimo potrebbe mai sostenere che DIo possa volere n religioni diverse attraverso n culti diversi. Cosa che è implicita in quella affermazione così anticristiana.

    L’intervento del Card Muller è forse stato spinto dalla lettura di questo documento, non saprei ma sicuramente mi da motivo di credere che la Chiesa esiste ancora ed è viva.

  3. Il Manifesto della Fede del Card. Muller ripropone la Dottrina della Fede Cattolica a poco più di cinquant’anni dalla pubblicazione della Professione di Fede, the “Credo del Popolo di Dio”, Paul VI. Sarebbe stato auspicabile e desiderabile che un’iniziativa del genere fosse stata portata avanti dall’attuale Papa, al termine dell’ultimo Anno della Fede. Non possiamo che aderire volentieri, as Catholics, a questo atto dell’ex Prefetto del Dicastero per la difesa della Dottrina della Fede, in un momento in cui nella Chiesa di Cristo sembra prevalere la confusione, insieme alla diffusione della tenebra dell’errore.
