Is it me, or is Pope Francis trying to replace "Church Teaching" with "tradition" in Pope Francis Urban Dictionary?

It's called doctrine not tradition.

If God's people can be convinced doctrine is merely tradition, everyone can just change the furniture.

It becomes a matter of style and taste, which is precisely the way he pitched our Catholic fiat at the sham synod.

Come to think of it, since the day of his elevation, he has not uttered a syllable that didn't paint the faithful practice of our religion as the antiquated fringe trying to cling to the old chestnut of resisting temptation to sin in our clothes that went out of style in the 60s.

In his swan song at the sham synod, he pigeonholed "traditionalists" as a group that needs to work on their inflexible hostility to renounce the baptismal vow of rejecting satan's lies.

Someone mentioned in the comments section below that the pope referenced a revolution at the 2015 synod.

I don't remember that and will have to read context, but I do remember him saying the sham synod was only his first push and his post synod homilies indicate he is not able to read the writing on the wall, throwing hints out there that that the world has morphed into Caligula and God is surprising us with the new definition that family is whoever you're sleeping around with.

I think his redefinitions bear watching and frisking.

The plan is to brainwash the uncatechized in the pews. We need to be right there to unravel, frustrate, undermine the language of deceit during this upcoming year.

He wants a revolution, he's got one.

Does Pope Francis think our Baptismal Promises are Obsolete?

This jabberwoky said a few very interesting things on 20/20:

First, I was shocked he described Pope Francis as "cunning" in this context.  It came across to me as though Pope Francis suffered a setback to thwart and pervert Church teaching, the Pope is a conniving fellow and he will go back to the drawing board to see if he could do it without the fallout of a schism.

Good luck with that.

That ought to help the unity he has broken for the first time in 1700 years.

Though this professor is clearly on the side of the counterfeit church, he actually makes some astute observations.

Like, Pope Francis is toast to Catholics faithfully teaching our fiat and we basically are going to hunker down until he moseys on down the road.  This is the first time in centuries, he says, that bishops and Cardinals do not have confidence in the Pope.

He  also is pitching the story line that Pope Francis' agenda to "welcome" cohabitating couples, divorced and homosexual Catholics and respect abortifacients suffered a defeat.

For the life of me, I can't figure out what this means.

I didn't know people committing adultery were not welcome, did you?

This is a dilemma.

How do Catholics get to the Confessional box if we can't come into the Church without a welcome?

Is there some kind of a mind reading process I've been excluded from?

Do they stop people at the door?

I never saw this shake down before, have you?

How do people know what kind of sins have been committed?

This explains why the Holy See didn't invite this blogger to their frufru blogging event!

I never knew there was a welcoming process, did you?

Is it secretive?

Seriously, isn't it farcical for the Pope to suggest there is a welcoming process that we have been excluding people from for 2000 years?

Does he think inflexible hostility to priests who mislead and confuse people with lies, errors and omissions is something he was born to ensure is welcomed into Catechesis?

It seemed like his bullet points in the closing synod homily conflates those who are inflexible to breaking our Baptismal promises with the list of things he wants to fix in the 2015 synod.

Are we supposed to reject satan's lies or teach and tolerate them in the name of charity?

The Pope was still at it today, asking us to adapt to changing society because God isn't afraid of new things.

We are not following you down that road. Give it a rest.

Pope Francis Manipulates Process to Include Rejected Paragraphs of Relatio

Good News - in fact great news: The dissident push embracing adultery as a good and precious vocation of family life in the Church and sacrilegious Communion was officially squashed.

Michael Voris states, and I agree, the shove to the push back seems to have had an effect. As it always does.

The victory won't last long. Though the disturbing paragraphs were voted out of the Relatio, the Pope ordered the Relatio to be published as if the vote and removal never took place.

Supposedly: as for the rejected paragraphs, they will still be sent out (!) as part of the entire text to dioceses around the world for "discussion" in preparation for next year's assembly. Yes, even though they were rejected...

In the end, this was going to be released with perverted content and distributed to every soul, come what may.

(There is an effective plan for this which we can discuss later.)

I'm very interested in the dissecting of the Pope's final message.

He indicates those hostile to consider embracing adultery and sacrilegious communion are not listening to that wee little voice inside of us that tells us evil is good and good is evil - that is surprisingly God, you see. He wound up that train of thought with the insult that modifying our conduct according to Church teaching and using the Sacraments to strive to resist sin is a temptation of scrupulous, solicitous zealots and...brace yourself...

and of the so-called – today – “traditionalists” and also of the intellectuals.

Then he gave a kick in the pants to the wolves:

The temptation to a destructive tendency to goodness [it. buonismo], that in the name of a deceptive mercy binds the wounds without first curing them and treating them; that treats the symptoms and not the causes and the roots. It is the temptation of the “do-gooders,” of the fearful, and also of the so-called “progressives and liberals.”

and he didn't forget himself:

The temptation to neglect the “depositum fidei” [the deposit of faith], not thinking of themselves as guardians but as owners or masters [of it]; or, on the other hand, the temptation to neglect reality, making use of meticulous language and a language of smoothing to say so many things and to say nothing! They call them “byzantinisms,” I think, these things…

The temptation to come down off the Cross, to please the people, and not stay there, in order to fulfil the will of the Father; to bow down to a worldly spirit instead of purifying it and bending it to the Spirit of God.

His concept of Church seems a wee bit off of the reservation. When everyone gets in a room, those who malign Church teaching and mislead God's people are not erring. They are not confusing and misleading our children and parents should not find it a source of discord.

This is the Church, our Mother! And when the Church, in the variety of her charisms, expresses herself in communion, she cannot err: it is the beauty and the strength of the sensus fidei, of that supernatural sense of the faith which is bestowed by the Holy Spirit so that, together, we can all enter into the heart of the Gospel and learn to follow Jesus in our life. And this should never be seen as a source of confusion and discord.

A big tent with Joan Chittister and me in a room under and with a Pope, children don't need the direction from a Catechism. The truth is found in the battle of the wits.

However, I could not agree more with this:

Many commentators, or people who talk, have imagined that they see a disputatious Church where one part is against the other, doubting even the Holy Spirit, the true promoter and guarantor of the unity and harmony of the Church – the Holy Spirit who throughout history has always guided the barque, through her Ministers, even when the sea was rough and choppy, and the ministers unfaithful and sinners.

The gates of hell never prevail against It.

Fr. Fessio had some extremely interesting observations on the readings of the Office as all of this was going on.

Outstanding job to all those who spoke out against the prevailing wind. Most especially Cardinal Burke and Cardinal Muller, Cardinal Pell. Worthy is the Lamb.

Final Message from Synod Fathers: An invitation to walk away from Church Teaching with them.

I'd say its a synopsis of different situations where people have strayed from Church teaching and it isn't clear to them what their role is.

What's a Pope to do when the whole world is sleeping around and clinging to boats in the middle of the ocean.

When darkness is growing to the point of becoming a dense shadow and when evil and sin is working into the heart of the family, what's a see of bishops to do but to point out the precious value in the evils and dense shadows.

Too much of a challenge to remain faithful to conjugal love. Indifference, money problems and stress create failures. We find new lovers to sleep around with and everyone down at your local parish and chancery is too much of a coward to point out the choices that are faithful to Christ. Now with a coward in the chair of Peter, there is nobody all the way up the ladder who is willing to show you your choices. That leaves people sleeping around with choices that are not obvious to them.

Everyone is wandering in the desert, so not having any idea what Church teaching is, you and the person or persons you are sleeping with have become the authors of truth. They intend to continue to impovish us all. They are replacing the deposit of faith with the evils that have arisen from their starvation of Church teaching.

Here is their prayer:

Father, grant to all families the presence of strong and wise spouses who may be the source of a free and united family.

In case it isn't clear what I think about the 'final message' of the synod fathers, it looks to me like they're inviting us to walk with them for the next year as they walk away from Church teaching.

It's the biggest bunch of hooey this side of those three days in Woodstock.

Do check out the comment on the link to the Cardinal Archbishop of Boston's newspaper from a man who is the fruit of the people lighting the way.

He states:

Please mention the use of contraception after procreating 4 children.
secondly, the continuing education of young and newly married couples in the Faith.
Thirdly, what about accepting gay couples into our church community?

Poor ignorant and misled man doesn't get it. They are not going to inform his ignorance or explain away the perversions he's been taught or is teaching to others.

They are going to let him stew in his own urine and tell him it smells like roses.

Christ's Mystical Body: Where is It in Its Journey to Follow Christ's Three Year Ministry?

On yesterday's post, I spoke about a comment Cardinal Burke made sometime in the last week that I found thought-provoking.

He spoke about the Relatio and basically said if this is where it's going, he wouldn't know where we were.

Whenever events in Christ's Body are disorienting, I try to figure out, literally, where Christ's Mystical Body is and what is happening. That way, I can see the roadmap Christ left for us more clearly.

Sometimes my guess is in the vicinity and other times, as events unfold, I find I was off the mark.

Over the past year, as the muslims have once again risen to pursue and kill us - wiping us out of every country, down to the last Christian in town - it became a little clearer that we were in Gethsemene where Judas and the soldiers were approaching Christ's Body in pursuit to kill It.

Yesterday, I thought we were further along. Judas has arrived with the soldiers and Christ's Body has been seized.

I mentioned my observations this morning to a friend and he responded: Peter's Denial.


Of course!! That is precisely where we are.

The Deposit of Faith is in captivity. The cock has crowed three times and Peter is denying Christ.

Watch your step in the chaos.

Events have shaken out the wheat from the chaff in Peter's see.

They have all been revealed and each has taken their role of Judas or Peter.

The mystical properties of Christ's Body are complex.

Cardinal Erdo is a shining example. Standing by the fire, he denies Christ but them somebody or something dope slaps him and he returns to what he knows is the road to his persecution and martyrdom - wet or dry martyrdom doesn't matter, we have not begun to see ugly yet. LOL.

Whether Pope Francis goes to his casket playing the role of Judas or whether he wakes up one morning to realize he is denying Christ is really immaterial.

We stay tethered to the Chair of Peter and the Deposit of Faith.

At some point, maybe the next Pope or the Pope after that, Peter once again returns.

I don't know who Fellay and SSPX is, but they are not part of Christ's Apostolic Church at this point in time and so they are to be stayed away from. Just remember Christ's instructions. Go right down to your local parish and stand up and speak the truth when it becomes clear the pastor has taken the role of denying Christ and the truth. If they throw you or chase you out, go to the next town.

If you have small children, it is not time for you to play in the game. Find a pastor who is playing the role of Peter and let him teach your children the tools for their salvation. The time is now. Evaluate who your pastor is, and mosey on down the road. Tell him why you are going before you go. This way, you have gifted him with the opportunity to recognize what role he is playing and may some day wake up. But you and your children flee to a safe place.

Much prayer for all.

A Walk Out?

According to this report, at least one Cardinal threatened to walk out of the sham synod if it didn't conform the Relatio to Church teaching.

It's a good idea.Why would you bother to take a vote on something you know you do not have the authority to do or say or change or pervert?

Why lend credibility to the action of a vote on a sham document in a sham synod?

A walk out would pull the rug out from under their feet.

It would suck the oxygen out of using a document for a year-long brainwashing of God's people.

Pope Francis and Cardinals would know there will never be, not now, not a month from now or a year from now, any collaboration to carry out this agenda.

He would never try to pull a stunt like this again.

Maybe something could be salvaged.

That is what you call mercy.

Synod Day 10: Veil Ripped off of Pope Francis and His Sham Synod "on the Family"

You've all no doubt read the explosive interview by now.

Cardinal Burke has always been an extremely prudent servant for Christ's Church.

For him to be so transparent about Pope Francis and his sham of a synod, I would venture to guess the situation is probably as bad as it gets.

If, as any rational person observing the situation has concluded, Pope Francis jury rigged the synod to discredit Church teaching, Carinal Burke said the following:

If Pope Francis had selected certain cardinals to steer the meeting to advance his personal views on matters like divorce and the treatment of LGBT people, Burke said, he would not be observing his mandate as the leader of the Catholic Church.

It is a misfeasance and malfeasance of his duty and role of supreme custodian of Church teaching.

I don't know what canonical ramifications his orchestrated buffoonery has upon his election, but I think the deliberate deception and outcome is catastrophic to his leadership as Roman Pontiff.

According to my understanding of the church’s teaching and discipline, no, it wouldn’t be correct,” Burke said, saying the pope had “done a lot of harm” by not stating “openly what his position is.” Burke said the Pope had given the impression that he endorses some of the most controversial parts of the Relatio, especially on questions of divorce, because of a German cardinal who gave an important speech suggesting a path to allowing people who had divorced and remarried to receive communion, Cardinal Walter Kasper, to open the synod’s discussion.

“The pope, more than anyone else as the pastor of the universal church, is bound to serve the truth,” Burke said. “The pope is not free to change the church’s teachings with regard to the immorality of homosexual acts or the insolubility of marriage or any other doctrine of the faith.”

The irony of all this is, if he had only chosen faithful bishops to calibrate his message and help him deliver the invitation for all to see the beauty of Church teaching, we all could have pulled it together.

But, Burke said, the church must always call a “person who’s involved in sinful acts … to conversion in a loving way, but obviously, like a father or mother in a family, in a firm way for the person’s own good.” There cannot be “a difference between doctrine and practice” on questions like homosexuality or anything else, Burke said.

“The church doesn’t exclude anyone who’s of goodwill even if the person is suffering from same-sex attraction or even acting on that attraction,” said Burke. “If people don’t accept the church’s teaching on these matters then they’re not thinking with the church and they need to examine themselves on that and correct their thinking or leave the church if they absolutely can’t accept. They’re certainly not free to change the teaching of the church to suit their own ideas.”

The Jesus who gathered apostles and ended His day walking them to the brothels to get some precious, good and valuable support is a fata morgana.

Jesus immediately drove out demons and cured the spiritual problems of those around him. He excluded entire races of people saying they were not worthy as we do not give what is holy to the dogs. He instructed His Apostles not to case pearls before swine - and He was talking about people, not pigs. He told people they could not hear Him because their father was the devil.

Do you remember when Jesus invited Ciaphas to teach His people?

Me neither.

Do you remember when St. Peter invited Nero to teach his beliefs on moral theology?

They do not know the Man.

Who Pope Francis hand-picked to calibrate Church teaching was deliberate, as is the outcome, which we all know contradicts 2000 years of Church teaching.

He didn't just pick one crackpot, he surrounded himself with them and appears to be conspiring to ambush and obstruct the moral authority of Church teaching.

Who could deny what we are all now hearing from everyone around us?

Even our good friend in Christ Mikey had to pony up.

Who's left? Robbie George, George Weigel and the motley crew of juggernauts at Patheos.

It is a really sad situation, but the damage the pope has done to his papacy is irreversible, IMO.

Justin Beiber the out of control drug addict paid the Pope 16,000 to go into the vacant papal household and kick a football around the room. The Pope is renting our ancient Sistene Chapel, turning it into some kind of a coporate function hall serving booze and food. He demonstrates not an ounce of respect for the treasure over which he was appointed temporary custodian, including the Deposit of Faith. A treasure which does not belong to him.

Words could never convey the gratitude I feel for Cardinal Burke's devoted service to Christ and His Church. In some ways, he will be much freer to speak and lead us through this crucible from Malta.

He said something the other day that I've been thinking about. So

mething like, if it turns out the Cardinals write a document that contradicts Church teaching, he would know where we were.

I've been thinking about what it would mean and where we are in the journey of Christ's Mystical Body. I wonder if we are in the Garden of Gethesemene and Christ's Body is about to be seized.

I don't know - but I don't think it's good. Wherever we are, stay put, and keep your powder dry.

Here's a great suggestion from Fr. N:

Dear Little Crackerjack;

Cardinal Burke has asked us to pray the Chaplet of the Holy Face for the Extraordinary Synod on the Family. You can find it here. Devotion to the Holy Face is simply greater devotion to the Sacred Heart.

Pray the chaplet HERE

Be sure to watch for my special videos coming from Rome next week, as I attempt to capture something of the spirit of the Extraordinary Synod of the Family. Sign up your friends and family to receive these special messages, and enrol them in the Seven Roman Masses that I will offer for the Crackerjack Club. Share this email with them, and encourage them to go to to sign up!

Watch my homily for October 18th, and be sure to share it with your friends ... because faith grows by sharing it!

God bless you and Mary keep you;

Fr. Paul Nicholson

By-the-bye, Fr. N's facebook status was the following - and I couldn't agree more!

I shall land in Rome tomorrow just in time for a great hornet's nest explosion! Stay calm my little crackerjacks! Rome has seen many hornets! Wheels up!

URGENT - Please Follow Link Below to Send Petition to Pope Francis and Synod Fathers -- Share, Post and Encourage Others

Our friends at BCI have set up an incredibly simple urgent petition to the Synod Fathers, urging them to defend the Faith.

Kindly note, one you fill in your information, the petition will take you to a separate page where you will review information to make sure it's correct - then you hit "send emails".

After you've done it yourself, please share, email, post and encourage others to send the message.

As many TTC readers have already discovered, George Soros - the man who funded the culture of death which was ha proven to be incredibly destructive to the family, has found Pope Francis to have a such a similar agenda to his own - he is funding a petition to help Pope Francis roll out their mutual agenda in the Catholic Church.

Pope Francis and George Soros are on the same culture warrior team helping children of Catholic families.

Soros would make a good speaker at Pope Francis 2015 Synod on the He's an expert in the field of finding value in adultery.

The Pope's Circus Wordsmythes Adultery from Precious Support vs. Valuable Support

When you pick up somebody in a barroom and take them home to sleep with you, Pope Francis is shifting the response of priests for 2000 years to helping us all see the value we can receive from the activity.

For instance, after the sex, you could ask the individual to help you pay the electric bill or fix the leaking faucet.

When we are not feeling well, our sexual partners can give us a sponge bath.

Get it?

This is saintly.  Full stop.

Pope Francis is trying to get us to see that our children actually benefit from cohabitation and adultery.

The more I think about it, this could be the fix for the problem I have getting the lawn mowed.

When the grass gets ankle deep, I could run to the nearest barstool and grab me some of St Faustina's Divine Mercy.

The corporal works of mercy of Christ's Church have shifted to immoral sex and sacriligious Communion.  

The first caricature of the benefits received from adultery was described as "precious support".

After the uproar, they felt it would help us to accept the Pope's skullsuggery if they reduced the benefits from precious support to valuable support.

Is there a rubber ball on the end of my nose?

"Will" Catholics faithful to the fiat of fidelity to Christ's Teachings "Turn on Pope Francis"?

John Allen asks.

The story has a problem with tense.

They already have.

He's crossed the Rubicon and we've burned the bridges down.

If the final document contains anything resembling Monday’s draft, it’s likely criticism of Francis will intensify.

Combine that with speculation that in the near future Francis will remove Burke from his position at the Apostolic Signatura, the Vatican’s supreme court, and it’s not difficult to imagine that many on the Catholic right could conclude, once and for all, that Francis is not on their side.

Which just so happens to be the side where 2000 years of defined truth is anchored.

But there's a miracle in the making.

For at least ten years Catholics have been asking wealthy donors to stop giving the bishops money - and tell them why you cut them off. Quit their committees, resign from their boards and councils, stop answering the phone.

I think they've finally got it.

Yet there will be a price to pay.

What people generally think of as “conservative” Catholics are often among the Church’s most dedicated members, among other things serving as major financial donors. Already, one head of a conservative think tank in Rome this week said he’d gotten a call from one of his benefactors saying that if things keep going the way they are, he was going to stop ponying up.

More broadly, Catholics typically labeled as “conservative” are often people who carry water for the Church at all levels, from the local to the universal. If that pool of human capital begins to dry up, it could make it more difficult for Francis to advance his agenda.

Even John Allen is admitting "Francis" is advancing an agenda.

The God of surprises has a surprise for Pope Francis' agenda: No tickee, no shirtee.

I don't think the bishops have come to Jesus on the line in the sand they've drawn.

They are just not getting it.

At no time in the history of Christ's Church has there been a crisis of this magnitude. Maybe going back to St. Athinasius. But not in the last 1700 years. The mood in faithful Catholic circles is irreconcilable, determined, prepared for battle and as ticked off as I have ever experienced in the pews. People are really, really hot under the collar.

By the time this is over, the scuffles over their ordaining and shuffling pedophiles is going to seem like a fight in the kindergarten schoolyard.

A coup of the Chair of Peter to rob our children of their salvation was the last cheap trick.

When Mommy and Daddy ain't happy, ain't nobody happy.
