The challenge to Pope Francis and Amoris Laetitia - IV

I meant this post for yesterday, but my schedule did not permit it. The remainder of the articles are not yet in English (if they are please direct me), however, Maike Hickson at OnePeterFive gives a brief summary.

The Pope continues to refuse to answer the reasonable questions of the Cardinals. He is boxed in, one answer undoes the whole house of Amoris, the other would declare himself to have taught against doctrine and opens himself for a declaration of heresy. The laity are confused, the bishops, emasculated, the Church, in increasing turmoil.

The Psalm from the Office of Sext for yesterday, Feria Quinta infra Hebdomadam I post Octavam Paschae speaks clearly to us in this day of the darkness that has descended on our Holy Mother, the Church.

Be edified by its reading.

Ut quid, Deus. A prayer of the church under grievous persecutions.

[1] Understanding for Asaph. O God, why hast thou cast us off unto the end: why is thy wrath enkindled against the sheep of thy pasture? [2] Remember thy congregation, which thou hast possessed from the beginning. The sceptre of thy inheritance which thou hast redeemed: mount Sion in which thou hast dwelt. [3] Lift up thy hands against their pride unto the end; see what things the enemy hath done wickedly in the sanctuary. [4] And they that hate thee have made their boasts, in the midst of thy solemnity. They have set up their ensigns for signs, [5] And they knew not both in the going out and on the highest top. As with axes in a wood of trees, [6] They have cut down at once the gates thereof, with axe and hatchet they have brought it down. [7] They have set fire to thy sanctuary: they have defiled the dwelling place of thy name on the earth. [8] They said in their heart, the whole kindred of them together: Let us abolish all the festival days of God from the land. [9] Our signs we have not seen, there is now no prophet: and he will know us no more. [10] How long, O God, shall the enemy reproach: is the adversary to provoke thy name for ever?

[11] Why dost thou turn away thy hand: and thy right hand out of the midst of thy bosom for ever? [12] But God is our king before ages: he hath wrought salvation in the midst of the earth. [13] Thou by thy strength didst make the sea firm: thou didst crush the heads of the dragons in the waters. [14] Thou hast broken the heads of the dragon: thou hast given him to be meat for the people of the Ethiopians. [15] Thou hast broken up the fountains and the torrents: thou hast dried up the Ethan rivers.

[16] Thine is the day, and thine is the night: thou hast made the morning light and the sun. [17] Thou hast made all the borders of the earth: the summer and the spring were formed by thee. [18] Remember this, the enemy hath reproached the Lord: and a foolish people hath provoked thy name. [19] Deliver not up to beasts the souls that confess to thee: and forget not to the end the souls of thy poor. [20] Have regard to thy covenant: for they that are the obscure of the earth have been filled with dwellings of iniquity. [21] Let not the humble be turned away with confusion: the poor and needy shall praise thy name. [22] Arise, O God, judge thy own cause: remember thy reproaches with which the foolish man hath reproached thee all the day. [23] Forget not the voices of thy enemies: the pride of them that hate thee ascendeth continually.

These are the most sobering times. If this is not the time for divine intervention I don't know what is.

I think the laity will be the decisive factor in this controversy. I don't expect the cardinals, even the dubia cardinals, to have the courage to say what is needed. I've become increasing aware that it is not only orthodox leaders that is needed, but orthodox leaders with a fighting spirit. And that is an incredibly rare thing. On the laity side, there is a greater willingness to speak openly. You'll be interested in some younger voices coming out on YouTube about this issue also: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f308T1oiWLc

Child sex abuse is rampant in nearly all religions,it's more widely reported when it's the Catholic Church ,Paedophiles will put themselves anywhere where they have access to children ,they are also extremely manipulative. In trying to protect the reputation of the Church ,these men were simply moved to another parish and allowed to run amok ,instead of been stripped of the Priesthood and expelled.This keep quiet and cover up exists in all organisations ,medical.political and religious. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-03-23/jewish-leaders-thought-it-was-a-sin-to-report-child-abuse/8380574 http://www.lastampa.it/2011/10/24/vaticaninsider/eng/world-news/islam-and-paedophilia-in-great-britain-5mD1pLmQDb2aAgkszGKxtI/pagina.html http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/01/protestant-sex-abuse-boz-tchividijian_n_4019347.html
