As the crisis in the Church deepens to critical proportions, look to the example of St. John. The Beloved Disciple had a winning game plan for he darkest day in human history. We can follow the same strategy today.

It’s hard to keep up with all the moves being made during this pontificate. Many of the pronouncements coming from the Vatican seem to be intentionally ambiguous, allowing for the faithful to fib to themselves that nothing’s changed, and allowing the less heterodox among us to exploit the carefully constructed loopholes in documents like Amoris Laetitia. No doubt the end product of this month’s synod will produce whoppers of equal magnitude.
Then, of course, there are the outright moves of betrayal, such as the stunning agreement with the Red Chinese which effectively throws the Underground Church in China under the bus.
Even though many faithful Catholics are confused, perplexed, disturbed, and perhaps even outraged by the Pontiff’s moves, there are those whom we suspect would be quite pleased…
The hunt is on for the “renegade” Archbishop! In the wake of his bombshell eleven page letter which named quite a few names, more than a few high-ranking prelates are ticked off. According to some press reports, the Vatican is actively seeking the whereabouts of Abp. Viganò, and has dispatched agents to locate him. Fearing for his life, Abp. Viganò has gone into hiding. From an undisclosed location, Viganò has written two additional letters.
Pray for Viganò’s safety during this time of crisis. Pray that his allegations be investigated fully, and pray to Our Lady that our beloved Church will emerge from this present tribulation stronger and holier!
The Roman Catholic Church has a deficit of cardinals who openly embrace the Magisterium. We need more men like Cardinal Sarah. Instead we have guys like this.
Some months before his infamous “rabbit hole” remarks the cardinal in charge of the Chicago Archdiocese still had plenty of other weird things to say.
In a recent talk at the Catholic Theological Union when praising the concept of “thinking out of the box,” he went just a little too far. According to a LifeSiteNews article published Nov. 2 2017, Blase Cardinal Cupich (appointed by Pope Francis) stated that if Catholics want to engage in “discernment” like Pope Francis does, they must let go of “cherished beliefs.”
Excuse me, Your Eminence, does “cherished beliefs” include things like the Catechism of the Roman Catholic Church? The Magisterium? You know…stuff like that? Here, see for yourself what Cupich is saying:
I don’t know about you, but talk like this gives me the creeps. Just sounds like a justification of “cafeteria Catholicism.”
Letting go of “cherished beliefs” like the magisterial teaching of the Church and instead engaging in something like following a path of personal discernment….hmmm…isn’t that what the arch-heritic Martin Luther did? This guy sounds like he’s just another protestant to me.
