A serious case: from Luther to Rahner through Hegel. magic tricks and somersaults …

Father Giovanni

– Theologica –



Under the pretext of ecumenism, it happened that a reborn, devastating and seductive modernism has succumbed to Luther's errors. This is the false ecumenism promoted for many years by Cardinal Walter Kasper, influenced by German idealism.

[…] in Rahneriani, these new Pharisees, convinced that they are in the vanguard of the Church, do not be stopped in due time by a short-sighted and fearful episcopate, and therefore for too long tolerated and imprudently admired, they were comfortable, since the immediate post-conciliar period, to organize and grow, aiming systematically and brazenly at the conquest of Roman power, and gathering followers in academic circles and in the episcopate. And now Rome is surrounded by this intrusive crowd of intriguers, that smooth it, they suffocate her, they would like to impose their ideas on it, they hinder its action and make Rome appear stained by worldliness, which it doesn't actually have.

    While not sharing Father Giovanni Cavalcoli's position on love joy, rather, its position in relation to the synodal debate, since, I think, the dear father on it (on the exhortation that is) did not enter into the merits of the contents, even if a certain convergence between it and the exhortation of the Roman Pontiff seems to be strong; I can not, nonetheless, do not show feelings of gratitude for a person like Father Cavalcoli, who, in my journey within the Roman Church, it constitutes a point of light and balance.
    If I'm not mistaken, Father Cavalcoli has received the offense of no longer being published by certain telematic sheets, precisely because of its position within the synodal debate. Such behavior towards a theologian and a metaphysician at whose school I am is inadmissible, unworthily and stealthily I ask myself, purpose, precisely, to obtain light and balance regarding the authentic faith. Albeit as an uncultured person and following the conversion, e, so, for necessity of things, I enjoy reading the greats of traditional thought. Well, they tell me, implicitly, worth one as Cavalcoli.

      Dear Eros Francesco.

      I enter the speech to tell her that the episode to which she refers was humiliating not for Father Giovanni Cavalcoli and for me, who were denied the publication of articles of pure theological speculation by secular gentlemen who had begun to act as Lefebvrian politicians disguised as hard-core Catholics; for indeed it was humiliating to them, not for us. And I explain why: if Father Giovanni and I produced writings of a socio-political nature, in that case we should be subject to all disputes and choices of “editorial directives”. But if we produce – as we always have – writings on speculative theology or ecclesial theology, based on the deposit of faith, on the doctrine and magisterium of the Church, there really is only Lay Lords, without any serious and profound theological training, they begin to censure theologians because of them “politico” say certain writings do not match the “They” line “theological“.

      It all means, against the other, cover up with an unspecified one Catholic tradition but ignore at the same time, maliciously and ideologically, that the the task of teaching it was bestowed on us; and it was given to us by the Church, for the Church and within the Church by Sacrament of grace, and it is the Church through her constituted Apostolic Authority, the only one who can tell us, eventually, what to write and how to write in matters of doctrine and faith, certainly not of the laity who often lack a basic theological formation.

      I who am a presbyter, every time I administer confessions to my penitent priests, at the end of the confession, after the acquittal, I always kiss the hand of the confreres who have chosen me as their confessor; and this as a clear sign of the veneration that I have for the ministerial priesthood and for all those who, to the mystery of grace, however unworthy and sinners, by arcane mystery they participate in the ministerial priesthood of Christ.

      We have therefore both left certain people free to live their subjective idea of ​​the Church and their even more subjective idea of ​​respect for the priestly figure; respected by them only and exclusively if the priest does what they are told, think what they think, confirms what is often doctrinally wrong – or sometimes even heretical – they claim.

      Father Giovanni Cavalcoli and me, together with our young collaborator and talented philosopher and theologian Jorge A. Faccio Lince, with the precious technical help of our webmaster Manuela Luzzardi, we closed the year 2015 with over 3.000.000. of visits.
      In this current year – even if in those days we didn't report it because we were busy with completely different writings – in the first four months of operation, from 1 January to 30 April we passed the 3.000.000. of visitors.
      At the present day 23 May, the number of visits has already reached 3.652.000.

      I therefore consider – and all together we think – to have had much more than we expected as compensation for our apostolic work carried out through the telematic network.

      All this to tell you that among certain pro-Lefebvrian laymen and certain rowdy Neocatechumenals who dance tribal around the altar and which transform the Eucharist into an exotic dinner “celebrated” often outside sacred spaces, there is no difference, because basically, to both, the figure of the priest as teacher is not clear, guide and pastor in the care of souls.

    I read the rightly critical comment by Msgr. Antonio Livi against Amoris Laetitia. Exactly the opposite that Father Cavalcoli does by praising this blasphemous exhortation. Bergoglio, unlike what Cavalcoli says, is the Problem as he is also together with those around him a rahnerian and teillardian for which he is clearly a heretic. Even the Second Vatican Council is in itself polluted by heresies for which its more or less heterodox interpretation has nothing to do.

      The Fathers of the Island of Patmos says:

      Dear Mr. Bazzorini.

      We too have raised and can raise some concerns about the “style” of the text of Amoris Laetitia, on the choice of his “expressive language”, on his “length”, on his “not particularly clear” on some pages … because all of this is legal, indeed in the precious theological criticism, done with charity and above all in deference to the Supreme Authority of the Church. And this is what Antonio Livi did, like other theologians and scholars.

      She can express what she wants, it's his business and in some respects it's all a burden of his soul. What he cannot do, however, is to involve the eminent philosopher and theologian Antonio Livi in ​​support of his personal ideas, which in our opinion are somewhat peregrine.

      We know Antonio Livi very well, not just because in October 2014 he founded this magazine with us, on which remains his name as founding father, but because we know his works and above all his priestly zeal.

      Antonio Livi is the last heir of the great Roman school and is a refined epistemologist.

      Following the ancient technique of the devil, she tries to drive turmoil by turning people against each other; and this is, precisely, diabolical.

      For this we invite you, both here and elsewhere, not to involve the name of Antonio Livi in ​​these statements, and all for this simple reason:

      – Antonio Livi would never accept that an act of magisterium of the Supreme Pontiff be defined as "blasphemous";
      – Antonio Livi would never accept that the Supreme Pontiff be defined as a "heretic";
      – Antonio Livi would never accept that the last ecumenical council of the Church is defined as "polluted by heresies".

      Why the whole thing, for him as for us, it would be the denial of our priestly ministry and of the service rendered to the Church as theologians.

      Therefore, if you want to support these absurd theses in supreme hatred of the Church and the Roman Pontiff – and it is his freedom and right to do so – do it in his name, but does not involve the name of an orthodox theologian and a zealous elderly priest like Monsignor Antonio Livi as suffrage of them, who, like us, he promised devoted and filial obedience to the bishop who consecrated him a priest in communion with the Bishop of Rome; and to this promise, which falls within the mysteries of faith and the mystery of participation in the ministerial priesthood of Christ, he has never failed and will never fail, we guarantee it to him who know him well both as a zealous priest and as a zealous philosopher and theologian to whom we will never cease to love and to pay fraternal priestly esteem.
