Introduction

.

Cardinal Carlo Caffarra [1938-2017], one to whom God's mercy has spared on this earth the abomination of desolation …

It can really cause astonishment that, the opposite of previous meetings, this time the Synod of Bishops dealing exclusively with a land region whose population is only half that of Mexico City, that means 4 millions. This is also because of suspicions about the true intentions that you would like to implement surreptitiously. But above all, we must ask what are the concepts of religion, of Christianity and of the Church that they are the basis of 'Instrumentum laboris recently published. Everything will be examined with the support of the individual elements of the text.

.

Because a synod in this region?

.

Per cominciare, the question is why a synod of bishops should deal with subjects, which - as is the case of three-quarters of’Instrumentum laboris – hanno solo marginalmente qualcosa a che fare con i Vangeli e la Chiesa. Obviously, by the Synod of Bishops it is also accomplished an aggressive intrusion into purely mundane affairs of the state and society in Brazil. C’è da chiedersi: what they have to do ecology, the economy and politics with the mandate and mission of the Church? And especially: which professional competence authorizes a church synod of bishops to issue statements in these fields? If the synod of the bishops really did, this would constitute an encroachment and a clerical presumption, that the state authorities would have grounds to reject.

.

On the natural religions and inculturation

.

Cardinal Carlo Caffarra [1938-2017], one to whom God's mercy has spared on this earth the abomination of desolation …

There is another element to be considered, which is located across the’Instrumentum laboris: namely the very positive assessment of natural religions, including indigenous healing practices and the like, as well as practices and forms of mythical-religious cult. In the context of the call harmony with nature, there is even talk of dialogue with the spirits (n. 75).

It is not only the ideal of the "noble savage” outlined by Rousseau and the Enlightenment here it is compared with the decadent European man. This line of thinking goes further, until the twentieth century, when it culminates in idolatry pantheistic nature. Hermann Claudius (1913) he created the anthem of the socialist labor movement “When we walk side by side…”, into a verse of which reads: "Green birches and green seeds, that the old Mother Earth sows generously, with a gesture of supplication so that man becomes her… “. It should be noted that this text has since been copied in the book of songs of the Hitler Youth, probably because it corresponded to the myth of "blood and soil" National Socialist. This ideological proximity is to be remarked. This anti-rational rejection of culture “western” which highlights the importance of reason it is typical of’Instrumentum laboris, respectively speak of “Mother Earth” nel n. 44 he was born in “cry of the earth and the poor "in 101.

As a result, the territory - that is, the forests of the Amazon region - is even said to be a locus theologicus, a special source of divine revelation. In it, there would be places of epiphany in which negative reserves of life and the planet wisdom, and speaking of God (n. 19). Moreover, the resulting regression from Logos al Mythos is raised to the criterion of what’Instrumentum laboris called inculturation of the Church. The result is a natural religion with a Christian mask.

The notion of inculturation is here virtually distorted, since it actually means the opposite of what the international theological commission had presented in 1988 and what had previously taught the decree To nations del Concilio Vaticano II sull’attività missionaria della Chiesa.

.

Abolition of celibacy and the introduction of women priests

.

Cardinal Carlo Caffarra [1938-2017], one to whom God's mercy has spared on this earth the abomination of desolation …

It is impossible to hide this “synod” It is particularly suited to implement two projects among the most loved ones who have not as yet been implemented: namely the abolition of celibacy and the introduction of a female priesthood, beginning with women deacons. In any case it is "taking into account the central role that women now play in the Amazon Church" (n. 129 a3). And likewise, it is "open new spaces to recreate appropriate ministries in this historic moment. It's time to listen to the voice of the Amazon… “ (n. 43).

But here you omit the fact that, da ultimo, Pope John Paul II affirmed with the greatest teaching authority that is not in the power of the Church to administer the sacrament of ordination to women. Effectively, in two thousand years, the Church has never administered the sacrament of Orders to a woman. The request that is placed in direct opposition to this fact shows that the word “church” It is now used only as a sociological term by the authors of’Instrumentum laboris, implicitly denying the sacramental-hierarchical nature of the Church.

.

The denial of the sacramental-hierarchical nature of the Church

.

Cardinal Carlo Caffarra [1938-1917], one to whom God's mercy has spared on this earth the abomination of desolation: the coffin containing the coffin during the funeral Mass in the Metropolitan Cathedral of the Bologna 9 September 2017.

Similarly - albeit with rather expressions of passage - the n. 127 It contains a direct attack on the hierarchical and sacramental constitution of the Church, When it is asked whether it would be appropriate to “reconsider the idea that the exercise of jurisdiction (power steering) It must be connected in all areas (sacramentale, judicial, amministrativo) and permanently to the sacrament of the order ". It is a vision so wrong that comes later in the n. 129 the demand for creating new offices that meet the needs of the Amazonian peoples.

However it is the area of ​​liturgy, cult, one in which the ideology of inculturation falsely understood finds its expression in a particularly spectacular way. Who, some forms of natural religions are taken positively. L'Instrument labor (n. 126 e) We do not hesitate to ask for the "poor and simple people” can express “their (!) faith through images, symbols, traditions, rituals and other sacraments (!!)”.

This definitely does not meet the precepts of the Constitution Holy Council, nor those of the decree To nations sull’attività missionaria della Chiesa, and it shows a purely horizontal understanding of the liturgy.

.

Conclusion

.

Cardinal Carlo Caffarra [1938-2017], one to whom God's mercy has spared on this earth the abomination of desolation: the coffin containing the coffin during the funeral Mass in the Metropolitan Cathedral of the Bologna 9 September 2017: the last farewell of priests.

In sum: l’Instrumentum laboris loads the synod of bishops, and ultimately the pope of a serious breach of deposit of credit, which means as a result of the self-destruction of the Church or the change of Christ's mystical in a ONG secular with a psychological social-ecological task.

After these observations, naturally, open questions: you can find here, especially as regards the sacramental and hierarchical structure of the Church, a decisive break with the apostolic tradition as constitutive for the Church, or rather the authors have a notion of the development of doctrine that is supported theologically to justify the breaks mentioned above?

This really seems to be the case. We are witnessing a new form of the classic modernism of the early twentieth century. At the time,, it started with a decidedly evolutionary approach and then she supported the idea that, During the continuous development of man to degrees higher, must be found, consequently, higher levels of consciousness and culture, so it may be that what was false yesterday can be true today. This dynamic development is also applied to religion, that is, the religious consciousness with its manifestations in doctrine, in worship, and of course in morals.

that my, At that time, it presupposes an understanding of the development of doctrine that is clearly opposed to the genuine Catholic understanding. The latter includes the development of dogma and of the Church not as a change, ma, Rather, as an organic development of a subject that remains true to its identity.

This is what the Vatican Councils I and II teach us in their constitutions the son of God, The light e God's word.

So you have to say today strongly that the’Instrumentum laboris binding contradicts the teaching of the Church in decisive points and therefore must be regarded as a heretic. Since then that even the fact of divine revelation is here questioned, or misunderstood, You must also talk, in addition, of apostasy.

This is even more justified in the light of the fact that the’Instrumentum laboris uses a purely immanent notion of religion and religion as it results in the form of man's personal expression of spiritual experience. The use of words and Christian notions can not hide that they are simply used as empty words, regardless of their original meaning.

l’Instrumentum laboris for the Amazon Synod is an attack on the foundations of the faith, in a way that was not previously thought possible. And so it must be rejected with the utmost firmness.

    Dear Father Ariel, long as there are priests like her (and many others) the Church will never collapse!
    For the rest I feel deep sorrow for what is happening but I can not trust in Divine Providence.
    Once I was told that “the world is basically good;” because it has perfected goodness that no human action could ever undermine.
    Thank you for your article.

    Dear don Ariel,
    remember your remote controversy with Father Cavalcoli on the closure of the pope to the Holy Spirit's inspirations.
    Cavalcoli claimed a sort of inerrancy of the pope, that was a little’ to smile, it is conceived in a manner, in my opinion, a powder’ mechanics: when he became pope, Cardinal-elect can not teach error, worth the loss of Christ's promise to Peter.

    Now, beyond the way to explain it, the father Cavalcoli thesis is perfectly in line with what the Catholic faithful have believed until yesterday: that is, the important thing is to be in communion with the Roman Pontiff.

    Cavalcoli saying that if he drew the pope's words had to be properly interpreted, which is to say that the four, when you need, we do become five.

    In reality, This is the theological problem unsolved: how I can be in communion with the pope who teaches the error in official texts? Of course, It is not solemn magisterium, but it's magisterium. How could God let this?

    Here is not in question the moral life of the Pope or his personal ideas, but the teaching of the doctrine. If the guarantor does not warrant, who will guarantee?

      • ector barbers
        ector barbers says:

        Revelation is given to the Church and her mediation. If the Church collapses, crolla anche tutto il resto. There can be no revelation without Church, worth dropping in Protestantism, which reduces the Church to the community in which everyone receives and interprets in his own way and neither can exist without Peter's Church unless you become Orthodox: many autocephalous Churches. The credibility of the Church to Benedict XVI was based on continuity in the magisterium. If this continuity is broken, in that sense we can still talk about the Catholic Church and especially in what sense we can say that the Catholic Church is the true Church of Christ?

        • orenzo
          orenzo says:

          The Revelation, you see God's word, It was completed by Christ (DV 4) and it was entrusted to the Church to “He remains always in its entirety and be transmitted to all generations” (DV 7).

          However, “to derive the exact meaning of the sacred texts, care must be taken with no less diligence the content and unity of the whole Scripture, taking due account of the living tradition of the whole Church and the analogy of faith” (DV 12).

          Of this, Unfortunately, the current Pope does not take any account and then, that expresses, are just his personal and not the authentic Magisterium.

          One example from recent the living: at the end of CV 12 states that “Jesus praises the young sinner who takes the good way most of those who believe to be true but does not live the spirit of love and mercy.”

          However, if you go to read the Gospel parable, the “young sinner” It is not praised in any way, and the brother who “He had an old heart and let greed possess, selfishness and envy”, It is remembered that all the paternal inheritance is exclusively his and not the younger brother.

    Fabrizio Giudici says:

    What does the Cardinal with the expression “in a way that was not previously thought possible”? That was not considered possible that such an attack came from within the visible Church?

  5. orenzo
    orenzo says:

    How I can give birth to something like “Instrumentum laboris” above?
    Simply using the same technique used in AL:
    – This is the Revelation, the divine law and the natural law as if they were the same thing;
    – It reaffirms what St. Thomas says about the natural law;
    – It is concluded that the revelation is not immutable but that is changing as it must be subject to specific cases.
    In practice, it now defines the “mercy” as the search for a mediation between the divine law and human behavior at variance with it, and not the embrace of the Father who will be seeking, with a sincere heart, concretely to return to Him.

  6. Nick
    Nick says:

    A mio umile parere, it seems to me that the problem of perspective here. Let nature be upgraded to one of the privileged places of the manifestation of God, He teaches S. Paul in his Letter to the Romans, where highlights the heathen are without excuse for their ignorance of God, in that “… that God can be known is their manifesto; God himself has revealed to them. [20]Indeed, the world's creation onward, His invisible nature can be understood and perceived in what he has done …” (RM 1. 19-20); not to mention the importance that the natural world is in great saints such as S. Francis or S. Ildegarda in Bingen. Even the integration of non-Christian symbols in Christianity, what has always happened (we think the Christmas tree, by it.). Obviously the situation is different if you use the exaltation of nature or indigenous religions to oppose them to the western Christian culture, in the wake of the destruction of our identity, indeed culture, now in place. In that case did well Card. Müller to express his criticism, which, however, in my opinion, It would have been more effective if he had distinguished the two planes.

    fabio says:

    caro padre Ariel
    vorrei domandarle
    the Code of Canon Law reports

    “Can. 1364 – § 1. The apostate, a heretic or a schismatic incurs a latae sententiae excommunication, without prejudice to the prescript of can. 194, § 1, n. 2; the cleric, moreover, may be punished with the penalties mentioned in can. 1336, § 1, NN. 1, 2 e 3.
    §2. If a longstanding contempt or the gravity of scandal, They can add other penalties, not excluding dismissal from the clerical state.”

    but for these gentlemen who proposed this “tool of labor” is valid or not? It always takes a canonical trial, but then the faithful when the shepherds make apostasy must always obey? What confidence can be stored in those who destroy the Catholic faith, Thank you

    • Ariel S. Levi di Gualdo
      Ariel S. Levi di Gualdo says:

      dear fabio,

      in many of my writings, two years now, lament, I explain and show that not only all the basic canon laws are disregarded, but if before serious wrongdoing or injustice one requesting it, the result is that the one who violates it is protected, those who claim the application ends punished.
      Therefore, contact at this time to the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura, or to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith responsible for crimes against the faith, It would like to ask a Soviet court to denounce the Stalinist era deportations to the gulag of political dissidents, seeking a judgment against those who deported them and their immediate release.

      It is not that everything is falling apart but worse: tutto è ormai crollato.
      Perhaps before long we will discover what were, behind it, God's plans.

      • fabio
        fabio says:

        dear father Ariel

        he did not answer me, the faithful when they notice that as you say “tutto è ormai crollatocosa deve fare, It must obey? It must resist? How convenient? And when a pope clearly deviates from his office, which it is to guard the deposit of faith and tradition? It must consider the pope? Heresy does not automatically lose the sense office? The confusion, the ambiguity does not come from malignant?

        • Ariel S. Levi di Gualdo
          Ariel S. Levi di Gualdo says:

          vede, the thing is very simple: the Roman Pontiff is not judged by any human authority, either ecclesiastical or secular, because it can not be subjected to any human judgment as there is no authority superior to her who can judge.
          So much so that to date the judgments or decisions personally or approved by the Roman Pontiff, It can not be presented any appeal [can. 333 § 3].
          That the so-called “Pope apostate” it's just pure speculation, an academic speculation, because never in the history of the Church occurred the case of a pope fell into apostasy.

          Heresy means that someone will judge and recognize it as such and then condemn the heretic, but if the heretic – always for academic hypothesis – It was a Roman Pontiff, there does not take over a slight problem: first, no one can judge; second, no one can lay.

          Instead, if one day the Church was transformed into a parliamentary republic, at that point, to the elected President of the Catholic Church whose mandate is given and taken away by voters through the mechanism of free elections, the procedure could start impeachment so to be able to depose, and convict.

          What, however, can not be done with the Roman Pontiff, holder of a power that he comes directly from God and therefore can only be judged by God.

          It's not so hard to understand.

            Instead, it is difficult to understand. Indeed, if I can not be in communion with the Pope, because it taught me the error in matters of faith and morals, this fact does not imply the end of the Church and, Consequently, the same Catholic faith that is based on the continuity of the Magisterium? Where the Church is a time that the pope is no longer obbedibile? Where is his indeffetibilità? I wrote a correction to my comment that has not been published in which I said that the fact that the Church “you change” il il announce the point standing or falling Church. It should be added Catholicae. Indeed, would remain the possibility to go on without hierarchy, becoming Protestant or be autocephalous Churches, as the Orthodox. These things I write to you as a priest, because I assure you that the desire to take the door and walk away, even at the age of fifty, It is very strong. It was already difficult before, Now it is becoming impossible.
