5 Santos que Viram o Inferno.

O site ChurchPop fez texto bem interessante reunindo a descrição do inferno feita por 5 santos. Esses 5 santos (4 mulheres e um homem) tiveram visões do Inferno.

Como diz o site, essas visões não devem meter medo, mas estimular que rezemos mais e evitemos os pecados.

Eu não tenho tempo para traduzir o texto no momento, mas aqui vão os destaques e depois as cinco visões descritas pelo site.

O que essas visões têm em comum: fogo, escuridão, ausência de Deus e perturbação eterna da alma.

Outros destaques:

- Beata Catherine Emmerich viu a "vespa inferna" comendo aqueles pecadores que idolatraram o pecado.

- Santa Teresa D´Ávila viu muitos Luteranos.

- São João Bosco ficou tão assustado com a visão do Inferno que compreendeu porque Cristo usava apenas símbolos para descrevê-lo, a mente humana não entenderia a descrição do Inferno.

- Santa Lúcia fez descrição dos demônios como animais terríveis;

- Santa Faustina detalha cada sensação da alma no Inferno.

1) Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerich: “No one could behold without trembling”

Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerich lived in the late 18th and early 19th centuries in the Holy Roman Empire. She was a mystic who claimed to have had visions of all sorts of spiritual things. Here is an excerpt of one of her visions of hell:

The exterior of Hell was appalling and frightful; it was an immense, heavy-looking building, and the granite of which it was formed, although black, was of metallic brightness; and the dark and ponderous doors were secured with such terrible bolts that no one could behold them without trembling.
Deep groans and cries of despair might be plainly distinguished even while the doors were tightly closed; but, O, who can describe the dreadful yells and shrieks which burst upon the ear when the bolts were unfastened and the doors flung open; and, O, who can depict the melancholy appearance of the inhabitants of this wretched place! […]
[A]ll within it is, on the contrary, close, confused, and crowded; every object tends to fill the mind with sensations of pain and grief; the marks of the wrath and vengeance of God are visible everywhere; despair, like a vulture, gnaws every heart, and discord and misery reign around. […] In the city of Hell nothing is to be seen but dismal dungeons, dark caverns, frightful deserts, fetid swamps filled with every imaginable species of poisonous and disgusting reptile. […]
[I]n Hell, perpetual scenes of wretched discord, and every species of sin and corruption, either under the most horrible forms imaginable, or represented by different kinds of dreadful torments. All in this dreary abode tends to fill the mind with horror; not a word of comfort is heard or a consoling idea admitted; the one tremendous thought, that the justice of an all-powerful God inflicts on the damned nothing but what they have fully deserved is the absorbing tremendous conviction which weighs down each heart.
Vice appears in its own, grim disgusting colours, being stripped of the mask under which it is hidden in this world, and the infernal viper is seen devouring those who have cherished or fostered it here below. In a word, Hell is the temple of anguish and despair

2) St. Teresa of Avila: “On fire, and torn to pieces”

The great 16th century mystic and Doctor of the Church claims to have had this experience of hell:

The entrance seemed to be by a long narrow pass, like a furnace, very low, dark, and close. The ground seemed to be saturated with water, mere mud, exceedingly foul, sending forth pestilential odors, and covered with loathsome vermin. At the end was a hollow place in the wall, like a closet, and in that I saw myself confined. […]
I felt a fire in my soul. […] My bodily sufferings were unendurable. I have undergone most painful sufferings in this life… yet all these were as nothing in comparison with what I felt then, especially when I saw that there would be no intermission, nor any end to them. […]
I did not see who it was that tormented me, but I felt myself on fire, and torn to pieces, as it seemed to me; and, I repeat it, this inward fire and despair are the greatest torments of all. […]
I could neither sit nor lie down: there was no room. I was placed as it were in a hole in the wall; and those walls, terrible to look on of themselves, hemmed me in on every side. I could not breathe. There was no light, but all was thick darkness. […]
I was so terrified by that vision – and that terror is on me even now while I am writing – that though it took place nearly six years ago, the natural warmth of my body is chilled by fear even now when I think of it. […]
It was that vision that filled me with the very great distress which I feel at the sight of so many lost souls, especially of the Lutherans – for they were once members of the Church by baptism – and also gave me the most vehement desires for the salvation of souls; for certainly I believe that, to save even one from those overwhelming torments, I would most willingly endure many deaths.

3) St. John Bosco: “Indescribable terror”

In 1868, St. John Bosco claimed to have had a dream about hell. His full narration is fairly long, so here is just a short excerpt:

As soon as I crossed its threshold, I felt an indescribable terror and dared not take another step. Ahead of me I could see something like an immense cave which gradually disappeared into recesses sunk far into the bowels of the mountains. They were all ablaze, but theirs was not an earthly fire with leaping tongues of flames. The entire cave – walls, ceiling, floor, iron, stones, wood, and coal – everything was a glowing white at temperatures of thousands of degrees. Yet the fire did not incinerate, did not consume. I simply can’t find words to describe the cavern’s horror. […]
[My guide] seized my hand, forced it open, and pressed it against the first of the thousand walls. The sensation was so utterly excruciating that I leaped back with a scream and found myself sitting up in bed.
My hand was stinging and I kept rubbing it to ease the pain. When I got up this morning I noticed that it was swollen. Having my hand pressed against the wall, though only in a dream, felt so real that, later, the skin of my palm peeled off.
Bear in mind that I have tried not to frighten you very much, and so I have not described these things in all their horror as I saw them and as they impressed me. We know that Our Lord always portrayed Hell in symbols because, had He described it as it really is, we would not have understood Him. No mortal can comprehend these things.

4) Sr. Lucy of Fatima: “Shrieks and groans of pain and despair”

Sr. Lucy of Fatima isn’t a saint (she died recently, in 2005), but she was one of the visionaries of Fatima in the early 20th century, an approved apparition in the Church. As a part of that vision, she claims she saw hell:

We saw, as it were, a vast sea of fire. Plunged in this fire, we saw the demons and the souls [of the damned].
The latter were like transparent burning embers, all blackened or burnished bronze, having human forms. They were floating about in that conflagration, now raised into the air by the flames which issued from within themselves, together with great clouds of smoke. Now they fell back on every side like sparks in huge fires, without weight or equilibrium, amid shrieks and groans of pain and despair, which horrified us and made us tremble with fright (it must have been this sight which caused me to cry out, as people say they heard me).
The demons were distinguished [from the souls of the damned] by their terrifying and repellent likeness to frightful and unknown animals, black and transparent like burning coals.

5) St. Maria Faustyna Kowalska: “A place of great torture”

St. Maria Faustyna Kowalska, often known simply as St. Faustina, was a Polish nun who claimed to have a large number of mystical experiences in the 1930s. Here’s an excerpt from her diary about one of her visions:

Today I was led by an Angel to the chasms of hell. It is a place of great torture; how awesomely large and extensive it is!
The kinds of tortures I saw: the first torture that constitutes hell is the loss of God; the second is perpetual remorse of conscience; the third is that one’s condition will never change; the fourth is the fire that will penetrate the soul without destroying it – a terrible suffering, since it is a purely spiritual fire, lit by God’s anger; the fifth torture is continual darkness and a terrible suffocating smell, and, despite the darkness, the devils and the souls of the damned see each other and all the evil, both of others and their own; the sixth torture is the constant company of Satan; the seventh torture is horrible despair, hatred of God, vile words, curses and blasphemies. […]
Each soul undergoes terrible and indescribable sufferings, related to the manner in which it has sinned. There are caverns and pits of torture where one form of agony differs from another. […]
But I noticed one thing: that most of the souls there are those who disbelieved that there is a hell. When I came to, I could hardly recover from the fright. How terribly souls suffer there! (Diary of St. Faustina, 741)

Educação no Ocidente, no Estado Islâmico e a Civilização da Idade Média

Muitos dizem que vivemos o "mundo moderno", no sentido que nosso mundo é mais avançado que o passado. Desprezamos o passado. Nós seríamos melhor, mais sábios. Até a Igreja Católica acha que é "arcaico" o que foi definido pelos seus santos e doutores e até pelo próprio Cristo.

Pois é, mas hoje eu li as seguintes notícias:

1) Pesquisa nos Estados Unidos entre os estudantes mostra que os estudantes estão se sentido oprimidos pela ditadura "politicamente correto". A maioria silencia sobre suas crenças e opiniões com medo de serem condenados pelo "politicamente correto" dos professores. E apesar disso, eles não sabem que podem denunciar essa ditadura, pois grande parte dos estudantes dos EUA nem sabe o que é a Primeira Emenda da Constituição Americana. Não sabem que esta Primeira Emenda defende a liberdade religiosa e a liberdade de expressão. O ensino americano (e ocidental) vive o Estado Islâmico do Politicamente Correto.

Falando em Estado Islâmico, li também sobre a educação infantil no Estado Islâmico.

2) O Estado Islâmico eliminou história, filosofia, música e matemática do ensino das crianças e promove chicotadas para quem se desviar do ensino islâmico.

E o mundo ocidental continua falando muito mal da Idade Média diz que é a idade das trevas.

Vejamos o vídeo abaixo no qual o professor Anthony Esolen conta o que tinha na Idade Média, não era nada de trveas e sim de muita luz e ensino. Época de criação das universidades, da notação musical, das igrejas góticas (nada mais bonito que uma igreja gótica), da Divinda Comédia de Dante (ainda hoje o melhor poema que o homem foi capaz de compor)... E eles, na Idade Média, não, não acreditavam que a terra era quadrada, sabiam que era redonda há séculos.

As Opiniões de Cardeiais Conservadores sobre o Sínodo.

Quando eu soube do resultado do Sínodo, eu disse que o Diabo dominou a Igreja, mas rezei que cardeais como Raymond Burke e George Pell dissessem que eu estava errado na minha avaliação.

Agora eu já sei das opiniões deles sobre o Sínodo da Família, eles deram entrevistas. E eu não estava errado, infelizmente.

Vou detalhar as duas entrevistas, começando pela a de Raymond Burke, feita para jornal National Catholic Register..

Burke condenou a falta de clareza do relatório final do Sínodo e disse que estava muito preocupado com os parágrafos 84, 85 e 86 que tratam da comunhão a divorciados que se casaram novamente, pois eles podem fragilizar a Doutrina da indissolubilidade do casamento que é "determinada tanto pela fé como pela razão".

Burke também condenou o termo "integração" usado no relatório, para ele o termo é mundano e ambíguo. O relatório (parágrafo 84) disse que esses divorciados devem ser "integrados" na comunidade cristã.

Burke também criticou o uso que se fez do documento Familaris Consortio do Papa João Paulo II, pois o Papa João Paulo II entendia claramente que esses divorciados não poder receber eucaristia, a não ser quando vivessem como irmãos.

Burke disse ainda uma frase maravilhosa que serve muito ao Sínodo:

"The exclusion of those in irregular matrimonial unions from the Sacraments does not constitute a judgment about their responsibility for the breakdown of the matrimonial bond to which they are bound.  It is rather the objective recognition of the bond" 

(Traduzo: "A exclusão de sacramentos para essas pessoas em matrimônio irregular não constitui um julgamento sobre a responsabilidade delas pelo fim do casamento que elas firmaram antes. É feita com o objetivo de reconhecer que elas possuem vínculo com o casamento firmado na Igreja").

Vejamos as palavras originais de Burke, em seguida trato da entrevista do cardeal Pell.

"The entire document requires a careful study, in order to understand exactly what counsel it is offering to the Roman Pontiff, in accord with the nature of the Synod of Bishops, “in the preservation and growth of faith and morals and in the observance and strengthening of ecclesiastical discipline” (can. 342). The section entitled “Discernment and Integration” (paragraphs 84-86) is, however, of immediate concern, because of its lack of clarity in a fundamental matter of the faith: the indissolubility of the marriage bond which both reason and faith teach all men.

First of all, the term, integration, is a mundane term which is theologically ambiguous. I do not see how it can be “the key of pastoral accompaniment of those in irregular matrimonial unions.” The interpretative key of their pastoral care must be the communion founded on the truth of marriage in Christ which must be honored and practiced, even if one of parties of the marriage has been abandoned through the sin of the other party.

The grace of the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony strengthens the abandoned spouse to live faithfully the marriage bond, continuing to seek the salvation of the partner who has abandoned the marriage union. I have known, since my childhood, and continue to meet faithful Catholics whose marriages have, in some way, been broken, but who, believing in the grace of the Sacrament, continue to live in fidelity to their marriage. They look to the Church for that accompaniment which helps them to remain faithful to the truth of Christ in their lives.

Second, the quotation from no. 84 of Familaris Consortio is misleading. At the time of the 1980 Synod of Bishops on the Family, as throughout the history of the Church, there has always been pressure to admit divorce because of the painful situations of those in irregular unions, that is, those whose lives are not in accord with the truth of Christ on marriage, as He clearly announced it in the Gospels (Mt 19, 3-12; Mk 10, 2-12). While, in no. 84, Pope Saint John Paul II acknowledges the different situations of those who are living in an irregular union and urges pastors and the whole community to help them as true brothers and sisters in Christ by virtue of Baptism, he concludes:

“However, the Church reaffirms her practice, which is based upon Sacred Scripture, of not admitting to Eucharistic Communion divorced persons who have remarried.” He then recalls the reason for the practice: “the fact that their state and condition of life objectively contradict that union of love between Christ and the Church which is signified and effected by the Eucharist.” He also rightly notes that a different practice would lead the faithful “into error and confusion regarding the Church’s teaching about the indissolubility of marriage.”

Thirdly, the citation of the Catechism of the Catholic Church (no. 1735) regarding imputability must be interpreted in terms of the freedom “which makes man responsible for his acts to the extent that they are voluntary” (CCC, no. 1734). The exclusion of those in irregular matrimonial unions from the Sacraments does not constitute a judgment about their responsibility for the breakdown of the matrimonial bond to which they are bound. It is rather the objective recognition of the bond.

The Declaration of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts of June 24, 2000, which is also cited is in complete accord with the constant teaching and practice of the Church in the matter, citing no. 84 of Familiaris Consortio. That Declaration also makes clear the finality of the conversation with a priest in the internal forum, that is, in the words of Pope Saint John Paul II, “a way of life that is no longer in contradiction to the indissolubility of marriage” (Familiaris Consortio, no. 84). The Church’s discipline provides ongoing pastoral assistance for those in irregular unions who “for serious reasons such as for example the children’s upbringing, …cannot satisfy the obligation to separate,” so that they may live chastely in fidelity to the truth of Christ (Familiaris Consortio, no. 84).”

A opinião do cardeal Pell é mais extensa e um pouco mais positiva com relação ao sínodo do que Burke.  mas ele se baseia em um erro, um erro de palavras. Ele achou que o relatório final defendesse o "completo ensinamento do Papa João Paulo II",  mas o texto do relatório não usa as palavras "completo ensinamento" (insegnamento complessivo), e sim os temos "criterio complessivo", que é traduzido como "critério geral" do ensinamento do Papa Francisco (parágrafo 85).

O jornal Catholic Register descobriu posteriormente esse erro de Pell e tentou contatá-lo novamente, mas não obteve resposta ainda. O jornal diz que muitos bispos podem ter se enganado com o termo e se mostra preocupado com isso.

Apesar de ser um pouco mais positivo, Pell diz também que os parágrafos 84, 85 e 86 são "insuficientes" e que só foram aprovados porque o Papa Francisco escolheu 45 participantes para o Sínodo.

Vejamos parte da entrevista do cardeal Pell, vejam toda no site do National Catholic Register.

Cardinal Pell on the Synod, the Final Report, and Decentralization

By Edward Petin 10/26/2015
Cardinal George Pell, prefect of the Vatican Secretariat for the Economy, sat down with the Register Oct. 25 to share his reflections on the Synod on the Family.
In this characteristically frank interview, he discussed the quality of the final report, criticisms over ambiguous language in the passage relating to divorce and remarriage, the influence of the Pope's 45 personally appointed delegates, and what the Holy Father's recent comments on synodality and decentralization might mean for the Church.

Your Eminence, what was your overall assessment of the synod?
I’ve been to seven synods, I think this was certainly the most interesting and also was very hard work. I think the final document is immensely better than the instrumentum laboris, in every way. It’s elegantly written, it’s more clearly structured, the level of argumentation is not embarrassingly low, and it’s a consensus document. There was massive consensus on 92 of the 94 paragraphs and there is nothing in the set of paragraphs that is heretical or opposed to current Church practice.

Paragraphs 84-86 on divorce and remarriage only just got enough votes and have drawn criticism for being ambiguous. Is this a problem?
No it’s not ambiguous, it’s insufficient. There’s really no ambiguity in the text. If you closely examine the text in 85, it’s very clear. The basis for all the discernment must be the “insegnamento complessivo”* – complete teaching – of John Paul II. Then it goes on to repeat that the basis of discernment is the teaching of the Church.

A lot of the fathers would have liked it spelled out a bit more explicitly but there is no mention anywhere of Communion for the divorced and remarried. It’s not one of the possibilities that was floated. The document is cleverly written to get consensus. Some people would say it’s insufficient. It’s not ambiguous.

EXPLICAÇÃO DO JORNAL:  * the text actually says "criterio complessivo" - overal criteria. As a reader pointed out: this is "extremely important since no. 85 passed by one vote. If Pell got it wrong, others did also. It shouldn't have passed." Checking with Cardinal Pell's office and will update soon. 

The headlines in some Italian newspapers, and an Irish website, implied the Church was now allowing all remarried divorcees to receive Holy Communion on a case-by-case basis. What’s your view of this?
That is completely unjustified. There is nothing in the document to justify that, and the Polish bishops came out today I believe to say very explicitly that such an understanding is not justified by the text. Now you might like the text or dislike it. You might think it’s good, bad or indifferent, but at least let us read it accurately and justly, and judge it on its own terms. So those headlines are inaccurate and misleading. They’ve probably been fed a line. I’m not sure there was or is an official English text so there’s some excuse for them misunderstanding it, but such headlines are not justified. People should go to those paragraphs and judge for themselves.

Some were critical that Familiaris consortio was cherry picked, and its clear position on not admitting remarried divorcees omitted, thereby diminishing the integrity of the apostolic letter. How do you respond to that?
Well the full text is not quoted, but they did add the word “complessivo” – it’s the entire teaching of John Paul II which is the basis, not the incomplete citation that was given.

At last year’s synod, there was manipulation and clearly an agenda being pushed. Are you more content with what has happened at this year’s meeting?
Yes, we voted paragraph by paragraph and, in most ways, the document did represent what was discussed in the groups whereas the interim relatio last time bore little relationship with the discussion in most groups. The Holy Father said there would be no manipulation and so we were substantially reassured on that.

You had this year 45 papal-appointed delegates who appeared to swing the vote. It’s said those controversial paragraphs on divorce and remarriage probably wouldn’t have passed without those papal appointees.
That’s very possible.

Do you think that’s a problem?
It’s a fact.

Regarding the Pope’s speech last Saturday on synodality, what is your opinion of that and his comments about decentralization? How will that proceed?
The two terms [synodality and decentralizations] are not really compatible because the Synod of Bishops has got people coming from the peripheries, near and far, to the center, and that’s a wonderful example of Catholic life. Catholicos, a Greek word, means universal, it doesn’t mean continental or regional. Synodality – I’m not quite sure what it means when it’s applied to the whole of Church life as distinct from the existence of a synod like this. But these things are to be the activities that are to continue to flow along. There are questions to be resolved and explained, and to get beyond the title or the affirmation and work out just what it means. The Catholic Church has been going for 2,000 years so there are established patterns and they don’t work too badly. That’s not to say we couldn’t improve.

Are you concerned that the Anglican model might creep in, weakening Church authority?
No because we’ve got the papacy and we’ve got a Holy Father who’s quite capable of making decisions for himself.

O "Espírito da Lei de Cristo" e o Papa Francisco.

O Papa Francisco gosta muito de ressaltar o "espírito da lei de Cristo" em contraponto às próprias palavras de Cristo (que seriam a lei). No seu discurso de fechamento do Sínodo ele disse:

The Synod experience also made us better realize that the true defenders of doctrine are not those who uphold its letter, but its spirit; not ideas but people. (A experiência do sínodo nos fez entender que os verdadeiros defensores da doutrina não são aqueles que mantém a letra da lei, mas aqueles que guardam seu espírito, não são as ideias, mas as pessoas).

Eu já disse aqui que essa passagem do discurso é bem frágil, especialmente por entregar às pessoas a determinação da lei de Cristo. O Papa se aproximou da heresia do pelagianismo.

Mas eu com certeza entendo que todas as leis têm um espírito, um ideal por trás, uma motivação.

A Bíblia tem um espírito: mostrar o caminho da salvação humana, do Velho Testamento ao Novo Testamento. Se não se considera esse espírito não se pode entender a Bíblia.

Em alguns casos, no entanto, o "espírito da lei" é controverso. Por exemplo, o Concílio Vaticano II teve um "espírito". Alguns, como o Papa Bento XVI, alegam que deve ser observado no contexto de continuidade da doutrina católica ("hermenêutica da continuidade"), outros se concentram no "aggiornamento" (atualização) do Papa João XXIII e procuram misturar a Doutrina Católica com o pensamento secular, até com marxismo.

Acontece que o "espírito" que exala do Papa Francisco não é o mesmo espírito das leis de Cristo. Como eu sei disso? Vejo diariamente o que os católicos tiram do comportamento e das palavras do Papa Francisco.

Por exemplo, ontem eu li o que uma "católica" famosa dos Estados Unidos disse sobre o Papa Francisco. Ela se chama Nancy Pelosi, "católica" do tipo que aprova o aborto e o casamento gay, que já foi presidente da Câmara dos Deputados, e é líder do governo Obama no Congresso, .

O site Life News relata que ela disse que os católicos deveriam ajudar a financiar a maior empresa de aborto dos Estados Unidos, "porque foi isso que o Papa Francisco disse que deveríamos fazer".

Ela está mentindo, claro, tenho convicção de que o Papa Francisco nunca diria isso.

Mas sei também que as palavras de Pelosi se adequam ao "espírito" esquerdista do Papa Francisco. Por isso, as palavras dela são minimamente críveis.

Ela jamais usaria o nome de Bento XVI.

Assim, quando o Papa Francisco defende que devemos usar o "espírito da lei", todo católico que se preza fica tremendo de medo e se ajoelha.

O "espírito" que ele fala por vezes fica muito distante do Espírito Santo. Infelizmente.

Como diz Patrick Archbold, os católicos verdadeiros estão meio sem líder, nesse caso devemos rezar ainda mais para que Deus nos dê verdadeiros líderes católicos. Assim, como Cristo disse em Mateus 9-36-38:

36. Ao ver as multidões, teve compaixão delas, porque estavam aflitas e desamparadas, como ovelhas sem pastor.
37 Então disse aos seus discípulos: "A colheita é grande, mas os trabalhadores são poucos.
38 Peçam, pois, ao Senhor da colheita que envie trabalhadores para a sua colheita.

Quem Venceu o Sínodo da Família: Esquerdistas ou Conservadores?

A minha leitura do resultado do sínodo foi que promoveu uma destruição nunca vista na história da Igreja, eu disse que o Diabo (o pecado) está dominando a Igreja.

Eu também disse que podia ser bem pior. E o pior ainda pode vim, com a possível decisão do Papa Francisco. Rezemos para que não ocorra isso.

O jornalista especialista em Vaticano, Edward Pentin, disse que se não fossem os 45 membros do Sínodo que foram apontados especialmente pelo Papa Francisco, o resultado teria sido conservador da Doutrina. Então, vemos claramente de que lado está o Papa Francisco.

O site Creative Minority Report disse que pelo ódio que o Papa Francisco destilou contra os conservadores em seu discurso final, ele não conseguiu tudo que ele queria no Sínodo.

O Cardeal Kasper, o grande incentivador de comunhão para divorciados que se casaram, além de outras mudanças que destruirão a Doutrina da família da Igreja, disse que ficou satisfeito com o Sínodo e já colocou pressão sobre o Papa.

Ele disse em uma entrevista para Rorate Caeli (traduzo em seguida em vermelho):

“I’m satisfied and happy with the work of the Synod. The final report (approved by a two-thirds majority) is a good text. Now it’s up to the Pope to make a decision. I hope he issues a document which highlights the joy of Christian marriage.”

“I’m satisfied; the door has been opened to the possibility of the divorced and remarried being granted Communion. There has been somewhat of an opening, but the consequences were not discussed. All of this is now in the Pope’s hands, who will decide what has to be done. The synod made suggestions. There has been an opening, but the question has still to be resolved in full and needs to be studied more.”

(Eu estou satisfeito com o trabalho do Sínodo. O relatório final (aprovado por dois terços) é um bom texto. Agora o Papa faz sua decisão. Eu espero que ele lance um documento que reforça a alegria do casamento cristão.  Eu estou satisfeito, a porta ficou aberta para a apossibilidade do divorciado que se casou novamente receba comunhão. Há uma abertura para isso, mas as consequências não foram discutidas. Tudo isso está nas mãos do Papa, que irá decidir sobre o que será feito. O sínodo fez sugestões. Há uma abertura, mas a questão deve ser resolvida completamente e precisa de mais estudo)

O Padre John Zuhlsdorf, conhecido como Padre Z, fez uma excelente análise dos três parágrafos mais relevantes do Sínodo (parágrafos 84,85 e 86) que tratam da situação dos divorciados. Com essa análise podemos saber quem venceu e quem foi derrotado no Sínodo.

O Padre Z teve o cuidado de marcar em cores diferentes as partes dos parágrafos provenientes da vertente esquerdista de Kasper e as inserções de bispos conservadores.

Vou reproduzir aqui, sendo em vermelho o texto dos chamados Kasperitos  (defensores do cardeal Kasper) e em azul a parte dos conservadores.

Vejam os parágrafos com essa divisão abaixo, depois eu digo qual foi a conclusão do Padre Z.

84 The baptized who are civilly divorced and remarried should be more integrated into Christian communities in different possible ways, avoiding thereby every occasion of scandal. The logic of integration is the key to their pastoral accompaniment, so that they not only know that they belong to the Body of Christ, which is the Church, but they can also have a joyous and fruitful experience of it. They are baptized, they are brothers and sister, the Holy Spirit bestows upon them gifts and charisms for the good of all. Their participation can be expressed in different ecclesial services: it is therefore necessary to discern which forms of exclusion that are currently in practice in the areas of liturgical, pastoral, educative, and official responsibilities can be eliminated. These individuals not only must not feel themselves to be excommunicated, they should be able to live and grow as living members of the Church, feeling Her as a mother who accompanies them always, who cares for them with affection and encourages them along the way of life and the Gospel. This integration is necessary also for the care and Christian education of their children who should be considered the most important of all. For the Christian community, taking care of these individuals is not a weakening of their faith and of the witness of the indissolubility of marriage; rather, the Church expresses its charity in just this care.

85. St John Paul II offered a comprehensive criterion that remains the basis for the assessment (valutazione) of these situations [civilly divorced and remarried Catholics]. “Pastors must know that, for the sake of truth, they are obliged to exercise careful discernment of situations. There is in fact a difference between those who have sincerely tried to save their first marriage and have been unjustly abandoned, and those who through their own grave fault have destroyed a canonically valid marriage. Finally, there are those who have entered into a second union for the sake of the children’s upbringing, and who are sometimes subjectively certain in conscience that their previous and irreparably destroyed marriage had never been valid.” (Familiaris Consortio, 84). It is therefore the responsibility of priests to accompany such persons on the way of discernment according to the teaching of the Church and the directives (orientamenti) of the Bishop. In this process it will be useful to make an examination of conscience through moments of reflection and repentance. The divorced and remarried should ask themselves how they behaved toward their children when their marriage entered a crisis; if there have been efforts at reconciliation; what is the situation of the abandoned partner; what are the consequences of the new relationship on the rest of the family and on the community of the faithful; what example this new relationship offers the young persons who must prepare for matrimony. A sincere reflection can strengthen confidence in the mercy of God that is not denied to anyone.

Furthermore, it cannot be denied that in certain circumstances “the imputability and responsibility of an action can be diminished or nullified” (CCC 1735) on account of diverse constraints (condizionamenti). As a consequence, the judgment about an objective situation must not be carried over to a judgment about “subjective imputability” (Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts, Declaration of 24 June 2000, n. 2a). In defined circumstances people experience great difficulty in acting in a different way. For this reason, in addition to upholding a general norm, it is necessary to recognize that the responsibility with respect to certain defined actions or decisions is not the same in all cases. Pastoral discernment, in addition to taking into account the rightly formed conscience of individuals, must also take these situations into account. Moreover, the consequences of actions carried out are not necessarily the same in all cases.

86. The pathway of accompaniment and discernment leads these faithful to conscientiously reflect on their situation before God. A conversation with a priest, in the internal forum, leads to the formation of correct judgment concerning that which bars the possibility of a fuller participation in the life of the Church and on those steps that may favor it and enable it to grow. Given that there is no graduality in the law (cf. Familiaris Consortio 34), this discernment can never be detached from the exigencies of truth and the charity of the Gospel proposed by the Church. In order that this may happen, the necessary conditions of humility, confidentiality, love for the Church and its teachings must be guaranteed in the sincere search for the will of God and in the desire to arrive at a more perfect response to it.


Só de olhar, vemos que os Kasperitos conseguiram dominar completamente o texto, com esparsa presença de argumentação conservadora.

O Padre Z viu justamente isso, o Sínodo abriu as portas para a comunhão de divorciados que se casaram novamente (que estariam em adultério, segundo Jesus Cristo). E além disso, o Sínodo excluiu um determinação da Igreja (do Papa João Paulo II) que exige que as pessoas nessa situação façam continência, vivam como irmãos e irmãs, para que possam receber comunhão.

Assim, com o Sínodo, a porta ficou aberta para que o corpo e o sangue de Cristo seja dado a todos "que tenham consciência tranquila" e o padre aceite.  Como eu perguntei, no meu outro post, quem irá impedir que o padre aceite dar eucaristia para qualquer um que tenha casado e recasado diversas vezes?
Alguém pode dizer: "mas isso já acontece por aí". É verdade, mas o padre que faz isso comete pecado gravíssimo, não aceito pela Doutrina da Igreja.
Certa vez, eu li que um padre é o homem mais poderoso do mundo. Pelo simples fato que por meio dele temos o corpo e o sangue de Cristo. Para mim, isso é uma verdade insofismável.
O Sínodo deu mais poderes ao padre, em tempos em que  muitos padres dizem que o diabo (o pecado) não existe. 
Ainda no blog do Padre Z, ele menciona um canonista que diz que o Papa Francisco não pode ir contra Cristo e todo o magistério da Igreja. E que o Papa Francisco sabe que se ele fizer isso irá provocar um enorme cisma.
Em todo caso, rezemos pela Igreja, o Papa Francisco traz muita insegurança, sua fragilidade teológica e seus desejos doutrinários são temerosos. Suas palavras de ódio aos conservadores são reveladoras. Infelizmente, isso é a mais pura verdade.

A Raiva, o Protestantismo, e Erros Teológicos no Discurso do Papa Francisco.

Eu já falei aqui do "livro dos insultos do Papa Francisco", o autor coleciona todos os insultos feitos pelo Papa Francisco. Esse Papa, que a mídia adora chamar de misericordioso, gosta  muito de atacar conservadores com todo tipo de insultos. O discurso dele de fechamento do sínodo tem tantos ataques a conservadores que o autor do livro vai completar um capítulo só comentando esses ataques.

Leiam o discurso vocês mesmos e verão o ódio que exala das palavras do Papa. Um discurso sem nenhuma classe, como denominou o site The American Catholic.

Eu não vou perder meu tempo com esse ódio do Papa Francisco.

Vou me ater a uma passagem que eu chamei no post anterior de puro Protestantismo, marcada em negrito abaixo na parte do discurso dele.

Ele disse:

The Synod experience also made us better realize that the true defenders of doctrine are not those who uphold its letter, but its spirit; not ideas but people; not formulae but the gratuitousness of God’s love and forgiveness. This is in no way to detract from the importance of formulae, laws and divine commandments, but rather to exalt the greatness of the true God, who does not treat us according to our merits or even according to our works but solely according to the boundless generosity of his Mercy (cf. Rom 3:21-30; Ps 129; Lk 11:37-54). 

A passagem é puro Protestantismo, porque diz que Deus desconsidera nossos pecados, nossa santidade, e nossas obras, nos salva apenas por Sua misericórdia. Assim, pecado e santidade não são importantes, o que importa é apenas a misericórdia de Deus. Muitas seitas protestantes dizem isso e liberam para todo tipo de pecado.

Pois, pela lógica, quem não seria salvo então?

Cristo condenou muitos quando esteve entre nós, condenou até São Pedro em certas passagens e sempre mandava os pecadores nunca mais pecar.

Além disso, Cristo não abandonou a lei defendida pelos fariseus, ele melhorou e até aprofundou como no caso do casamento. Cristo condenou o comportamento dos fariseus e não a lei que eles defendiam.

Mas vou comentar as passagens que o Papa usa para fundamentar suas palavras que dizem que Deus usa somente pela sua misericórdia, e não se o homem pecava ou não, ou fazia coisas boas ou não.

A primeira é de Romanos 3:21-30, e não tem nada a ver com o que disse o Papa, nem fala de misericórdia de Deus, mas da graça de Deus a todos, pagãos e judeus. No caso, São Paulo defende a lei dos judeus mas exalta a importância da fé em Cristo que é dada a todos e não apenas aos judeus. É um discurso aos judeus. Eu vou adicionar o versículo 31, excluído pelo Papa, vejamos (fonte Bíblia de Jerusalém):

21 Agora, porém, independentemente da Lei, se manifestou a justiça de Deus, testemunhada pela Lei e pelos Profetas,
22 justiça de Deus que opera pela fé em Jesus Cristo, em favor de todos os que crêem — pois não há diferença,
23 sendo que todos pecaram e todos estão privados da glória de Deus —
24 e são justificados gratuitamente, por sua graça, em virtude da redenção realizada em Cristo Jesus:
25 Deus o expôs como instrumento de propiciação, por seu próprio sangue, mediante a fé. Ele queria assim manifestar sua justiça, pelo fato de ter deixado sem punição os pecados de outrora,
26 no tempo da paciência de Deus; ele queria manifestar a sua justiça no tempo presente para mostrar-se justo" e para justificar aquele que é pela fé em Jesus.
Papel da Fé —
27 Onde está, então, o motivo de glória? Fica excluído. Em força de que lei? A das obras? De modo algum, mas em força da lei da fé.
28 Porquanto nós sustentamos que o homem é justificado pela fé, sem as obras da Lei.
29 Ou acaso ele é Deus só dos judeus? Não é também dos gentios? É certo que também dos gentios,
30 pois há um só Deus, que justificará os circuncisos pela fé e também os incircuncisos através da fé. 31 Então eliminamos a Lei através da fé? De modo algum! Pelo contrário, a consolidamos.

O Salmo 129 (o salmo tem uma contagem que depende da Bíblia, tenho impressão que é esse 130(129), pois o 129 (128) não tem nada a ver) fala da misericórdia de Deus diante de tantos pecados de Israel. O que o Salmo quer dizer é que pelos pecados todos estarão no Inferno, a misericórdia de Deus nos salva. É verdade, mas é bem diferente de dizer que Deus não sofre com os pecados e não é louvado pela santidade humana, como o Papa disse. Vejamos:

SALMO 130 (129)

Das profundezas clamo a ti, Iahweh: 2 Senhor, ouve o meu grito! Que teus ouvidos estejam atentos ao meu pedido por graça! 3Se fazes conta das culpas, Iahweh, Senhor, quem poderá se manter? 4Mas contigo está o perdão, para que sejas temido. 5Eu espero, Iahweh, e minha alma espera, confiando na tua palavra; 6minha alma aguarda o Senhor mais que os guardas pela aurora.Mais que os guardas pela aurora 7aguarde Israel a Iahweh, pois com Iahweh está o amor, e redenção em abundância: 8ele vai resgatar Israel de suas iniquidades todas.

No evangelho São Lucas 37-54, Cristo critica quem se esconde por meio de lei práticas mas carrega muito pecado dentro do coração. Em suma, Cristo condena o pecado e não exalta a misericórdia de Deus. E Ele não condena a lei judia, mas sim os fariseus hipócritas que conhecem e pregam a lei mas não a cumprem. Vejamos:

37 Enquanto falava, um fariseu convidou-o para almoçar em sua casa. Entrou e pôs-se à mesa.
38 O fariseu, vendo isso, ficou admirado de que ele não fizesse primeiro as abluções antes do almoço.
39 O Senhor, porém, lhe disse: "Agora vós, ó fariseus! Purificais o exterior do copo e do prato, e por dentro estais cheios de rapina e de perversidade!
40 Insensatos! Quem fez o exterior não fez também o interior?
41 Antes, dai o que tendes em esmola e tudo ficará puro para vós!
42 Mas ai de vós, fariseus, que pagais o dízimo da hortelã, da arruda e de todas as hortaliças, mas deixais de lado a justiça e o amor de Deus! Importava praticar estas coisas sem deixar de lado aquelas.
43 Ai de vós, fariseus, que apreciais o primeiro lugar nas sinagogas e as saudações nas praças públicas!
44Ai de vós, porque sois como esses túmulos disfarçados, sobre os quais se pode transitar, sem o saber!"
 45 Um dos legistas tomou então a palavra: "Mestre, falando assim, tu nos insultas também!"
46 Ele respondeu: "Igualmente ai de vós, legistas, porque impondes aos homens fardos insuportáveis, e vós mesmos não tocais esses fardos com um dedo sequer!
47 Ai de vós que edificais os túmulos dos profetas, enquanto foram vossos pais que os mataram!
48 Assim, vós sois testemunhas e aprovais os atos dos vossos pais: eles mataram e vós edificais!
49 Eis por que a Sabedoria de Deus" disse: Eu lhes enviarei profetas e apóstolos; eles matarão e perseguirão a alguns deles,
50 a fim de que se peçam contas a esta geração do sangue de todos os profetas que foi derramado desde a criação do mundo,
51 do sangue de Abel até o sangue de Zacarias, que pereceu entre o altar e o Santuário. Sim, digo-vos, serão pedidas contas a esta geração!
52Ai de vós, legistas, porque tomastes a chave da ciência! Vós mesmos não entrastes e impedistes os que queriam entrar!"
53 Quando ele saiu de lá, os escribas e os fariseus começaram a persegui-lo terrivelmente e a cercá-lo de interrogatórios a respeito de muitas coisas,
54 armando-lhe ciladas para surpreenderem uma palavra de sua boca.

Em suma, nenhuma citação usada pelo Papa apoia o argumento dele de que somente a misericórdia é importante. Nem podia apoiar, pois cristianismo não é isso.

Diabo Chegou ao Trono da Igreja

Hoje é o dia mais triste de toda minha vida católica. Apesar de ter ouvido palavras de esperanças durante o sínodo do cardeal Pell, o resultado que vi do sínodo e as palavras do Papa Francisco me deixaram sem dúvida, o diabo chegou ao trono da Igreja, conseguiu destruir o que é mais sagrado, a família.

Nas palavras de um cardeal, o sínodo abre as portas para que qualquer padre libere o corpo e sangue de Cristo a quem se casou de novo. Quem impedirá que aquele que se casou de novo e de novo e de novo receba comunhão? E quem impedirá que um padre dê a comunhão para um casal gay?

Já tem organizações pró-vida e pró-família pedindo socorro vendo o resultado do sínodo. Eles apelam ao Papa Francisco para que ele "restaure a confiança na Igreja".

Acho, e sei que essa organizações também sabem, que o Papa não é pessoa mais indicada.

As palavras do Papa Francisco no fechamento do sínodo foram um desastre épico para mim. Vejamos isso que mostrou o site Estadão.

" O papa Francisco afirmou que procurou “abrir os horizontes para superar toda a hermenêutica conspiradora ou perspectiva fechada, para defender e difundir a liberdade dos filhos de Deus, para transmitir a beleza da novidade cristã, por vezes coberta pela ferrugem duma linguagem arcaica ou simplesmente incompreensível”.
A experiência do Sínodo fez-nos compreender melhor também que os verdadeiros defensores da doutrina não são os que defendem a letra, mas o espírito; não as ideias, mas o homem; não as fórmulas, mas a gratuidade do amor de Deus e do seu perdão”, disse ainda o papa. “Isto não significa de forma alguma diminuir a importância das fórmulas, das leis e dos mandamentos divinos, mas exaltar a grandeza do verdadeiro Deus, que não nos trata segundo os nossos méritos nem segundo as nossas obras, mas unicamente segundo a generosidade sem limites da sua Misericórdia.

Isso é puro PROTESTANTISMO. A graça é suficiente. Fé e obras do homem não serviriam para nada. E tem um tanto de Doutrina maçônica. O homem é que determina o que é certo e errado. Lula disse recentemente que tinha a consciência tranquila, vários nazistas disseram o mesmo. As palavras do Papa não são palavras de quem conhece a Doutrina Católica, são palavras de um protestante!

E olhem que ontem mesmo, lendo Dom Quixote, eu li sobre São João 10,36-38, onde o próprio Cristo exalta as obras. Vejamos:

36.como acusais de blasfemo aquele a quem o Pai santificou e enviou ao mundo, porque eu disse: Sou o Filho de Deus?

37.Se eu não faço as obras de meu Pai, não me creiais.
38.Mas se as faço, e se não quiserdes crer em mim, crede nas minhas obras, para que saibais e reconheçais que o Pai está em mim e eu no Pai.

Sei que as portas do inferno não prevalecerão sobre a Igreja (Mateus 16:18).

Mas sei também, pela minha leitura da história da Igreja e dos papas, que o Diabo nunca teve tanto domínio. A Igreja já teve péssimos papas, mas ninguém, nem mesmo os papas adúlteros e assassinos, imaginaram o sínodo de hoje. 

O sites brasileiros que li só viram opiniões de cardeais que desejam liberar completamente a Igreja para qualquer tipo de união, como casamento gay.

O site da Veja, por exemplo, sempre tão imbecil em matéria de catolicismo, chega a dizer que o Papa queria uma Igreja "que não julgasse ou condenasse". Parece que ele quer mesmo isso, mas não é  possível uma Igreja de Cristo sem a existência do pecado. Um fato básico do cristianismo que até a Veja deveria saber.

Minha fé católica nunca esteve tão abalada.

Vou rezar muito hoje.

E pedir que eu me arrependa rapidamente do que escrevi nesse post. Tomara que os Pell e os Burke da vida consigam elevar minhas esperanças. Por enquanto, a minha única alegria é que sei que o sínodo podia ser ainda bem pior.

Finalmente, eu gostaria de dizer que agora é com vocês abaixo.

Para ONU, Criança de 10 Anos Já é Parceiro Gay.

Documento da ONU para Gays diz que faz análise da vida de "MSM" (homens que fazem sexo com homens) desde os 10 anos de vida!

É isso, para a ONU, crianças já são gays com vida sexual ativa aos 10 anos. Enquanto qualquer análise que mostre o íntimo relacionamento entre pedofilia e homossexualismo é considerada crime de ódio.

No documento, eles admitem que gays têm mais parceiros, têm mais AIDS e usam mais drogas, o que na boca de um cristão seria também considerado um crime de ódio. Mas eles admitem isso para dizer que os gays são discriminados, que sofrem pressão psicológica social, por isso usam as drogas e fazem mais sexo.

O desejo daqueles que escreveram o documento é que os gays sejam considerados uma "comunidade", possuindo direitos especiais de proteção mundial.

Eles também querem mais pesquisas sobre o sexo usando o reto (para não usar palavras de baixo calão) e sobre lubrificantes para o sexo gay.

Quem preparou o documento foi um braço da ONU, chamado UNFPA, Agência das Nações Unidas para Planejamento Familiar. Isso mesmo, gays e planejamento familiar tem tudo a ver na ONU.

O documento menciona apoio psicológico para gays que querem deixar de ser gays, mas apenas para condenar isso como mais um tipo de pressão sobre os homossexuais.

Vejamos análise do documento feito pelo C-FAM, Center for Family and Human Rights, uma importantíssima organização católica que luta contra o aborto e em defesa da vida.

UN Agency Includes Ten Year Old Boys in Definition of Gay Behavior

By | October 22, 2015

NEW YORK, October 23 (C-Fam) The UN family planning agency (UNFPA) drifted further into controversial territory with a new report on HIV and sexually transmitted infections among men who have sex with men – and boys.

UNFPA’s report implies that promiscuity and dangerous sexual practices are a pervasive part of the male homosexual experience, a charge that the Southern Poverty Law Center would label as “hate” if it came from a conservative Christian group. At the same time, the report ignores the fact that having multiple sexual partners, especially multiple concurrent partners, greatly raises the risk of infection. The advice it offers for changing sexual behavior is limited to using condoms and lubricants.

UNFPA begins with a definition of MSM as “men who have sex with men,” and “should be understood to include young men, i.e. those in the age range 10–24 years.” While MSM is generally considered to be a behavior rather than an identity, UNFPA includes those “who experience sexual attraction towards the same sex.”

This definition seems to create a “community” based on a common behavior or inclination, despite the fact that some men swept into this grouping may not identify themselves as belonging to it. UNFPA repeatedly calls for strengthening “community” systems and empowering groups to promote the cultural acceptance of homosexual behavior.

UNFPA co-authored the report with several groups, including the World Health Organization, and USAID and PEPFAR (the U.S.’s foreign aid and HIV/AIDS programs). While the report ostensibly aims to prevent the spread of diseases, it instead attempts to turn high-risk behaviors into a “community”— encompassing ten-year-olds being abused or sold for sex and individuals choosing not to act on their attractions.

UNFPA and its collaborators rely on interpretations by sexual-rights advocates of human rights standards, citing a UN Development Program report calling for the decriminalization of prostitution and homosexual behavior, and the Yogyakarta Principles, a document produced by non-governmental groups.

The report notes the “significant prevalence of intimate partner violence among men who have sex with men,” and admits they “are more likely to use alcohol and [illegal] drugs than other adults in the general population.” They use drugs and alcohol, it claims, to “overcome social inhibitions and increase confidence while seeking sexual partners,” as well as to “provide psychological enhancement of sexual experiences, [achieve] the ability to engage in sex for extended periods of time, and lower sexual inhibitions.” Drugs “may help them cope with a diagnosis of HIV and escape from the fear of rejection due to their HIV positive status.”

Regarding behaviors associated with MSM, UNFPA recommends, “more research on enema usage and rectal fisting is needed, especially to develop guidelines.” It avoids calling them “harmful cultural practices,” a concept frequently denounced in UN documents.

Much of the report is devoted to HIV prevention and management through antiretroviral drugs, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), which are very costly, as well as the widespread dissemination of condoms and lubricants.

UNFPA mentions reparative therapy only to dismiss it as “shown to subject men who have sex with men to additional emotional and psychological trauma.”

Os Bispos Não Apoiarão o Papa no Sínodo. Louvemos a Deus.

Estranho escrever esse título, mas rezo para que seja verdade, para que os bispos se levantem contra o que deseja o Papa Francisco. O Jornal Wall Street Journal disse ontem que nenhum dos 13 pequenos grupo de bispos dentro do Sínodo da família apoiou a liberação de comunhão para divorciados que casaram novamente. O site Catholic News Agency confirma o que escreve o Wall Street Journal

Ficou claro que deve-se defender as palavras de Cristo. Por vezes, dentro da Igreja hoje em dia, infelizmente, até o Papa parece querer jogar fora as palavras de Cristo.

O Papa ainda pode ser ditador e usar de sua autoridade determinando o que nenhum pequeno grupo de bispos aceitou. Por isso, continuemos rezando e lutando pelas palavras de Cristo em defesa da família. E, se isso for verdade, o resultado também é fruto do esforço de muitos fiéis que se levantaram para defender Cristo em sites, blogs, petições e cartas.

Vejamos parte do texto do Wall Street Journal.

Catholic Bishops Likely to Deal Pope Francis Setback on Family Issues

Synod signals insufficient support for changing rules on divorce and Communion

By Francis X. Rocca in Vatican City and Tamara Audi in Los Angeles                            

Newly released documents show Catholic bishops are unlikely to back Pope Francis’ drive to let church members who have divorced and remarried receive Communion, threatening to set back one of the pope’s signature initiatives.

Position papers prepared during a high-profile meeting on family issues indicate conservative opposition to the move remains strong. Without the support of the gathering, known as a synod, the pope faces the unpalatable choice of watching a major meeting he has promoted come to an inconclusive end, or acting unilaterally and potentially dividing the church.

“You can’t separate practice from moral teaching,” Cardinal George Pell, the Vatican’s finance chief and a leader of conservatives at the synod, said in an interview last Friday. “Christ’s teaching on adultery and second marriages is very clear.”

A proposal for a change in rules on Communion has become the centerpiece of the pope’s push for a more conciliatory approach to Catholics at odds with church teaching on family issues, including remarried divorcées and people in same-sex relationships.

“The church says, ‘Be faithful to your dream’ ” of lifelong fidelity in marriage, said Cardinal Reinhard Marx of Munich, a leader of the synod liberals, at a news conference Wednesday. “But when you fail, we stay with you, we stay together, you belong to us.”

Last year, the pope convened a two-part meeting of bishops from around the world to discuss family issues, with particular attention to divorce. The final half has been under way this month in Rome and draws to a close Saturday.

After more than two weeks of debate, position papers released Wednesday showed insufficient support among the bishops for liberalizing church law on Communion for divorced and civilly remarried Catholics.

None of the 13 small groups into which the more than 250 bishops had divided for discussion called categorically for allowing such Catholics to receive Communion. Some groups either advised against doing so or failed to reach a conclusion; others called for further study of the matter by the pope, bishops or a body of experts.

Under church law, such Catholics may not receive Communion without an annulment of their first, sacramental marriage, unless they abstain from sexual relations in the second, civil union. Otherwise, the church considers them adulterers.

Conservatives argue that any change would effectively sanction extramarital sex, opening the door to acceptance of cohabitation and homosexual acts.

Top Meteorologista Francês: Mudança Climática é Mentira Escandalosa.

Philippe Verdier, chefe da meteorologia da France Television, escreveu o livro acima em que questiona o que se chama de mudança climática, aquela em que o homem seria o culpado por conta das emissões de gás carbônico. Ele acusa a comunidade científica de se vender aos governos. Por conta de sua posição, ele foi afastado do trabalho. A mídia não aceita dissidentes.

Eu já falei muito do assunto "mudança climática" aqui no blog, especificamente falando dos erros grosseiros de previsão da ONU e dos vários casos de corrupção científica (como o climategate). Mas ultimamente tenho usado meu outro blog, Bloco 11, Cela 18, onde outro dia eu falei de um top cientista britânico/americano que questiona a sanidade e a ganância da comunidade cientifica do mundo.

Agora mais essa voz se junta àqueles que questionam e chamam de mentirosa a abordagem da mudança climática que tem sido defendida de Obama ao Papa Francisco. Verdier, assim como aquele top cientista, falam dos benefícios do aquecimento, que é taboo no meio científico hoje em dia.

Como o Papa escreveu uma encíclica defendendo uma "solução" para a mudança climática e falou muito disso em sua visita aos Estados Unidos, achei que cabe voltar ao tema aqui nesse blog, em que falo mais sobre questões teológicas, conflitos militares e política internacional.

O livro de Verdier se torna mais importante porque em dezembro ocorrerá em Paris a conferência do clima que o Papa Francisco tanto pressionou para que apresente uma solução para "salvar o planeta".

Vejamos parte do texto do jornal inglês The Telegraph.

France's top weatherman sparks storm over book questioning climate change

By , Paris
5:45PM BST 14 Oct 2015
Every night, France's chief weatherman has told the nation how much wind, sun or rain they can expect the following day.
Now Philippe Verdier, a household name for his nightly forecasts on France 2, has been taken off air after a more controversial announcement - criticising the world's top climate change experts.
Mr Verdier claims in the book Climat Investigation (Climate Investigation) that leading climatologists and political leaders have “taken the world hostage” with misleading data.
In a promotional video, Mr Verdier said: “Every night I address five million French people to talk to you about the wind, the clouds and the sun. And yet there is something important, very important that I haven’t been able to tell you, because it’s neither the time nor the place to do so.”
He added: “We are hostage to a planetary scandal over climate change – a war machine whose aim is to keep us in fear.”
His outspoken views led France 2 to take him off the air starting this Monday. "I received a letter telling me not to come. I'm in shock," he told RTL radio. "This is a direct extension of what I say in my book, namely that any contrary views must be eliminated."

The book has been released at a particularly sensitive moment as Paris is due to host a crucial UN climate change conference in December.

According to Mr Verdier, top climate scientists, who often rely on state funding, have been “manipulated and politicised”.

He specifically challenges the work of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, or IPCC, saying they “blatantly erased” data that went against their overall conclusions, and casts doubt on the accuracy of their climate models.

The IPCC has said that temperatures could rise by up to 4.8°C if no action is taken to reduce carbon emissions.

Mr Verdier writes: “We are undoubtedly on a plateau in terms of warming and the cyclical variability of the climate doesn’t not allow us to envisage if the natural rhythm will tomorrow lead us towards a fall, a stagnation or a rise (in temperature).”

The 330-page book also controversially contains a chapter on the “positive results” of climate change in France, one of the countries predicted to be the least affected by rising temperatures. “It’s politically incorrect and taboo to vaunt the merits of climate change because there are some,” he writes, citing warmer weather attracting tourists, lower death rates and electricity bills in mild winters, and better wine and champagne vintages.

Asked whether he had permission from his employer to release the book, he said: “I don’t think management liked it, let’s be honest.”

Tiraram Versos Romanos 1:26-32 da Leitura Católica. Versos contra Homossexualismo.

O teólogo Taylor Marshall observou que os versos de Romanos 1:26-32 foram tirados das leituras diárias nas Igrejas Católicas. Passa-se de Romanos 1:16-25, para Romanos 2:1-11.

Aconteceu o mesmo no Brasil, vejam o site da CNBB para as leituras do dia 13 de outubro, depois vejam para o dia 14 de outubro.

Mas o que dizem esses versos Romanos 1:26-32?


Por isso, Deus os entregou a paixões vergonhosas: as suas mulheres mudaram as relações naturais em relações contra a natureza.

Do mesmo modo também os homens, deixando o uso natural da mulher, arderam em desejos uns para com os outros, cometendo homens com homens a torpeza, e recebendo em seus corpos a paga devida ao seu desvario.

Como não se preocupassem em adquirir o conhecimento de Deus, Deus entregou-os aos sentimentos depravados, e daí o seu procedimento indigno.

São repletos de toda espécie de malícia, perversidade, cobiça, maldade; cheios de inveja, homicídio, contenda, engano, malignidade.

São difamadores, caluniadores, inimigos de Deus, insolentes, soberbos, altivos, inventores de maldades, rebeldes contra os pais.

São insensatos, desleais, sem coração, sem misericórdia.
Apesar de conhecerem o justo decreto de Deus que considera dignos de morte aqueles que fazem tais coisas, não somente as praticam, como também aplaudem os que as cometem.

Os versos condenam o homossexualismo!!

Um padre chamado Lawrence, comentando no site de Taylor Marshall,  disse que Romanos 1:26-32 não faz parte das leituras desde os anos 70 e que um padre não pode adicionar leituras ao texto. Mas que o padre pode sim comentar os versos Romanos 1:26-32 em sua homilia quando comentando Romanos até o versículo 25O padre também diz que as leituras deveriam ser revistas e incluir os versos contra o homossexualismo.

Desde os anos 70? Depois se deseja que os católicos saibam o que a Igreja pensa sobre homossexualismo!! A Igreja não odeia os homossexuais, os ama, como ama todos os pecadores, e quer atraí-los para a Igreja, mas considera extremamente depravado e pecaminoso o ato homossexual, um pecado gravíssimo. Simples assim.

Depois querem que católicos valorizem a família e encham a Praça de São Pedro para ver a santificação dos pais de Santa Teresinha de Lisieux.

Meu Deus, a Igreja já está rasgando a Bíblia. E destruindo o pensamento do mais importante teólogo da Igreja de todos os tempos, o formador do pensamento católico e cristão, São Paulo.

Rezemos pela intercessão de São Louis e Santa Zélie Martin.
