In verity I tell you: in front of that lady of Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, the italian stylist Donatella Versace is an authentic monument for male virility 12 Maggio 201828 Settembre 2018 isoladipatmos – Sorrowful Mysteries of the Church – IN VERITY I TELL YOU: IN FRONT OF THAT LADY OF CARDINAL GIANFRANCO RAVASI, THE ITALIAN STYLIST DONATELLA VERSACE IS AN AUTHENTIC MONUMENT FOR MALE VIRILITY . One could attempt a defense by stating that even heterosexuals are narcissists, vain and exhibitionists like Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi. It is true, but as any specialist in psychological science can explain, it is two completely different ways of manifesting narcissism, vanity and exhibitionism. It is in fact from the different ways of manifesting these three attributes that the personality of the homosexual and that of the heterosexual is recognized more than ever. . . Author Ariel S.

What would have happened if he had seen the actresses of ancient Judaea dressed with the insignia of the High Priest? First of all a premise: if tomorrow the Ecclesiastical Authority addresses to me only one warning, I must remember that, to do so legitimately and in conformity with canon law, I must first declare the full legitimacy and opportunity of the action of Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, that at the exhibition The celestial bodies: fashion and Catholic imagination [cf. HERE, HERE], held in New York, allowed the display of sacred vestments taken from the historic sacristies of the Vatican City and belonged and worn by the Supreme Pontiffs. The symbols of our faith are thus finished mixed on a catwalk of half-naked women. . It is certainly not my intention to refuse any warning from the legitimate ecclesiastical authority, to whom, before receiving the Sacrament of the Order, I freely promised a filial and devoted obedience. However, since the object of my criticism is the public behavior of a Cardinal, it is good to clarify that I can be warned, and later also condemned, only after the Ecclesiastical Authority has first declared legitimate and in conformity with the dignity and sacredness of the Holy Roman Church the act of Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, whom I criticized with a hardness proportionate to the action he performed. Otherwise, any provision against me will fall into that invalidity that would render it void, since it does not respect the provisions of the ecclesiastical laws [can. 1339-1340, can. 1341-1353, can. 1720-1728]. . the stylist Donatella Versace poses next to the tiara of the Blessed Pontius IX Let’s start with a fact: Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi is moved by a homosexual psychology. This does not mean ― it is clear ― that he has ever practiced homosexuality, no one can say this, because he alone can know him only in his conscience. Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi belongs to the category of repressed homosexuals, those who have become accustomed to venting the impulses of their libido in another way. In fact, an ecclesiastical animated by a structurally homosexual psychology will sooner or later end up desecrating the faith itself, especially after the rise of the hierarchy, ending up falling into that delirium of omnipotence that leads him to think of being an untouchable to whom everything is allowed. And, in the psychology of the ecclesiastical homosexual, more or less repressed according to the different cases, the three elements that emerge are narcissism, vanity and ostentatious and unbridled exhibitionism. . fashion show Let’s start with a fact: Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi is moved by a homosexual psychology.

Today the cleaning of the archives of the episcopal palaces, of those of the apostolic nunciatures and of the Holy See itself is very fashionable. Therefore, if in Milan they did not clean the archiepiscopal archive, there should always be a dossier in which the then archbishop, Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini, blocked the episcopal promotion of Gianfranco Ravasi, face already known to the general public for his presence in television. Another veto to this episcopal promotion was given by another Cardinal, the Cardinal Attilio Nicora, who was a companion in the seminary of Gianfranco Ravasi, ordained priest in 1966. Subsequently, a third Cardinal, the successor of Carlo Maria Martini on the Chair of Saint Ambrose, the Cardinal Dionigi Tettamanzi, has blocked for the second time this episcopal promotion [see the chronicle never denied HERE and HERE]. . show of the grotesque The Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini, whose theology and ecclesiology can be widely discussed, was nevertheless a deeply virile man. So much so that in this figure, undoubtedly beautiful and hieratic, the human structure of the virile man was represented on which, therefore, the Jesuit, the priest and the bishop had been built. And saying “no” to the hypothesis that Gianfranco Ravasi was promoted to the bishop, Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini knew very well all the reasons that in the ecclesiastical world are never deepened too much. However, the fact remains that three cardinals, two of whom bishops of the then Ambrosian priest Gianfranco Ravasi and a third his former seminary companion, strongly opposed his episcopal promotion, blocking him twice. And of all this ― if some documents have not disappeared ― there remain trace both in the archives of the Archiepiscopal Curia of Milan and in that of the Congregation for Bishops. . fashion show The Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi embodies that devastating homosexualism now widespread as an epidemic within the Church, which reaches its peak with the inevitable desecration; a desecration that has reached the point of extracting from the monumental sacristy of the Vatican City the sacred vestments belonging to the various Venerable Pontiffs, to bring them as choreographic accessories to an offensive parade, among young half-naked girls wearing the symbols of the sacred episcopal order. . the crown of thorns of Jesus Christ reduced to a necklace under the head of an androgynous figure The sacred vestments are part of what are known as “external accidents” and are called sacred because they are used for the celebration of the Sacred Mystery of the Eucharistic Sacrifice. These vestments, as Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi should know, have been blessed with the appropriate blessings provided for by the blessing ritual. Every time they were worn, a prayer was recited on each piece. Just as I do today when I get dressed for Holy Mass, mentally reciting the prayer for each piece worn. Completely clothed with sacred garments, I recite the act of contrition, so that, although I am imperfect, sinner and unworthy of the Sacred Priestly Order received, I may celebrate the Eucharistic Sacrifice of Holy Mass in communion with the universal Church for edification and the salvation of the People of God. . Who like me ― rightly never elected bishop and never created cardinal ―, lives the mysteries of faith in the sacred respect of their divine substance and also of those external events that contribute as such to the substance itself, including the sacred vestments, in what way accept these “bullshit” by cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi? . Cardinal Timothy Dolan, did not raise any question, for the simple fact that he was also present, and posed smiling in photos with Donatella Versace Why, the Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Metropolitan Archbishop of New York, in whose canonical jurisdiction this irreverent parade took place, did he not raise his voice to express disagreement and indignation, promptly sending a note of protest to the Holy See? But for the simple fact that he himself was present, and because he himself expressed himself ironically, as an eighteenth-century Irish drunk who had come to the New World to escape a penal colony. Jokingly, the cardinal replied to the journalists that the episcopal miter worn by the beautiful girl was hers and that he himself had lent it to the girl: . “I gave the girl the episcopal miter, she gave it back to me this morning … she was very kind, my auxiliary bishops made fun of this story, but I told them:” Hey, you guys should not complain because in exchange for my courtesy, the singer has offered to make some confirmations “» [see the statements reported, HERE]. . For years and years I have spoken in vain and written of the great scourge of homosexualism within our Catholic clergy. In one of our private speeches, shortly before his death, Cardinal Carlo Caffarra told me: . «… this great wound has now assumed in the Church those which are in all respects the signs of a true epidemic». . I answered these words saying: . «Father Cardinal, as I have written several times: the problem is now dramatic and out of control: these subjects have created a powerful lobby capable of putting their men at the top of the Church, to determine ecclesiastical positions and careers. Today, from homosexual priests of the past, we have come to have homosexual bishops, because those who in the late sixties and early seventies were directing the pious gay brotherhood in the seminaries, today they have become bishops and, as soon as they reach this delicate role, they assume as collaborators similar subjects, and soon after, these subjects, we find them to manage the dioceses inside the episcopal palaces, in the apostolic nunciatures and in the dicasteries themselves of the Holy See. . the exhibition and its various organizers This powerful and unstoppable lobby, today more than ever, has proliferated the worst of these elements, placing them in the special affairs section of the Secretariat of State or taking them to the Pontifical Council for the new evangelization; and all this is due to what I defined in 2011 as a «universal gay flood unstoppable within the Church». . In March 2013, however, the wind has changed, these subjects have abandoned the gold, silver and the solemn vestments from evening to morning, to cover themselves with the poor and poverty, but continuing as before and worse before, making great careers and entering into delicate positions, even if on them have been collected dossier containing news to say the least disturbing for each candidate for the episcopal dignity. And all those who yesterday had been excluded from the Episcopal elections especially for serious moral reasons, today are becoming bishops one after another; and all today carry the iron cross to the neck and the wooden pastoral stick in their hands, declaring on every occasion that «the poor are the Church’s priority». . At those words, the good cardinal Carlo Caffarra gave me reason a thousand times, then, not even a month later, while I was preparing to return to Bologna on September 18, 2017 to visit him again, after having had a long conversation with him on September 5, the next day, late morning, he was hit by a heart attack and returned to the Father’s House. . I would almost be tempted to say: better this way. Many other things have been spared, to him as to others, including this desecrating spectacle during which Donatella Versace, now rendered a monster disfigured by excessive abuse of plastic surgery, in front of Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, appears as an authentic monument to male virility. . «Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God. Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends thema powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness» [Saint Paul, II Thessalonians 2, 3-12]. .
