Song sung at Vatican: "bend over, let us see you shake your tail feathers"

I'll let this speak for its self...

*note the 2:23 mark

Nothing like hearing "bend over, let us see you shake your tail feathers" sung at the Vatican for our Holy Father who then tells them "you are doing great things".  

Hey, I'm all for wanting people to smile, but where is the DIGNITY and REVERENCE once known to the Vatican?  

I expect better from Christ's Holy Catholic Church.  Perhaps I have my standards set too high for this papacy.

God give me strength. 

In Christ,

Can't say it better than Christopher Ferrara

I read a very good article today, by Christopher Ferrara over at Fatima Network.

Since I can't possibly say it any better than Mr. Ferrara, I will simply offer a quote (emphasis mine) and link to the full article.  

quote: "It seems that Pope Francis is determined to be more and more provocative with each passing week, as if to reveal deeper and deeper layers of what appears to be a liberal, seventies-era Latin American Jesuit’s constitutional disdain for the supposed “rigidity” of orthodox Catholicism. 
By now the whole world knows that on June 14, during his customary rambling remarks, this time at a “pastoral conference” at Saint John Lateran, Francis declared that “the great majority of our sacramental marriages are null” because the spouses “don’t know what they say” when they say “Yes, for life.” He also dropped the bomb that in his view couples in the countryside of northeast Argentina who cohabit out of the husband’s superstitious fear of marriage vows, avoiding Catholic nuptials until they are grandparents, have “a true marriage, they have the grace precisely of marriage, because of the fidelity they have.”
In other words, according to Francis, it is quite literally the case that among Catholics most marriages are not really marriages, whereas many non-marriages are.  With these remarks, Francis simultaneously undermines confidence in Holy Matrimony while legitimating unholy relationships which the Church, following Our Lord Himself, can only view as adultery or simple fornication. The Vatican’s frantic post-conference “correction” of the transcript of Francis’ remarks changes “great majority” to “a part,” but it leaves unchanged Francis’ mind-boggling and really quite nonsensical assertion that cohabiting couples afraid to marry can have a “true marriage.”
Changing the transcript of this particular outburst of heterodoxy does not change what Francis actually believes. For as he declared without correction in September 2015, during the flight back to Rome from the “beach party Mass” in Rio (citing his predecessor as Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Cardinal Quarracino): “half of all marriages are null…. Why? Because they are married without maturity, they get married without realizing that it’s for an entire lifetime, or they are married because socially they must get married.”  That is what Francis really thinks." [end quote]

Please read the full article HERE.  Mr. Ferrara is spot on. 

In Christ,

Pope Francis Voter Guide 2016 elections

Just what we need, another progressive voter guide for liberals to push their anti-Catholic agenda's on stupid Catholics voting in this years Presidential election. 

This "guide" is a little different from the previous progressive "Catholic" guide because it is using Pope Francis as its source for [get this] "…a new community with new rules is established…hierarchies are subverted, concentrated power is decentralized, and prodigal children are welcomed home." 

Oh yes!  Out with the old (2,000+ years of Catholic teaching) and in with the new!  New things like the mortal sins of abortion and euthanasia are now equal with being poor!  Imagine that? Being poor is now a sin! 

**(On a side note: this reminds me of another article I highly recommend all my readers read on Pope Francis' latest comment that Jesus was stained with sin- click HERE to read)

Here is a quote from the Pope Francis Voter Guide:
quote: "In this new place of mercy, the last are first, the poor are blessed, and enemies are loved. Black lives matter here. LGBTQ lives matter here; and so too do the lives of refugees, the imprisoned, the unborn, and anyone else who suffers dehumanization, exclusion, and injustice…. Today, human dignity and life is degraded by racism, violence, abortion, war, the death penalty, euthanasia, human trafficking, torture, environmental damage, and poverty." 
To read more of this rubbish, go HERE

Just wondering...does Pope Francis approve of his name being used on a progressive Catholic voter guide that places abortion on the same level as "environmental damage and poverty"?  Again, just when did being poor become a sin? 

Will the Pope tell these progressives to "stop" or will he continue to allow them to use his name for such scandal?

In Christ,

Jesus stained by sin:

How do you stop a pope who has gone off the rails?

"If the faith is in imminent peril, prelates ought to be accused by their subjects, even in public." -St. Thomas Aquinas 

How do we stop a pope who has clearly (for a while now) gone off the rails? 

No, seriously.  What do we do?  Sit by and watch as Pope Francis continues the downward spiral of spouting heretical ideology that is causing chaos and mass confusion in the world?

We do nothing?  Just stand by and watch people go to hell with a helping hand from the Vicar of Christ? 

How long do we keep saying "He hasn't officially changed Church teaching" to comfort ourselves when we've got a pope saying things like fornicators have "real marriages" because of their "fidelity to each other"? 
Quote: He [Pope Francis] said that in Argentina’s northeast countryside, couples have a child and live together. They have a civil wedding when the child goes to school, and when they become grandparents they “get married religiously.”
“It’s a superstition, because marriage frightens the husband. It’s a superstition we have to overcome,” the Pope said. “I’ve seen a lot of fidelity in these cohabitations, and I am sure that this is a real marriage, they have the grace of a real marriage because of their fidelity, but there are local superstitions, etc.”

When did fidelity fornication become sinless?  Is this not a "new teaching" by a Catholic pope?  How many people living in the mortal sin of cohabitation will now not even consider an actual valid marriage because Pope Francis has just made this latest SCANDALOUS statement?

So go ahead and fornicate folks, if you are loyal to each other Pope Francis "is sure" you have a "real marriage" even though you've never gotten married.  Pope Francis has just redefined the word "fornicator". 

Can the rest of the Catholic world now call Pope Francis' ideology heresy? 

What else will it take before we collectively call a spade a spade? 

When our first pope, Saint Peter was wrong about his treatment of the Gentile converts nearly everyone was silent.  It seemed no one was willing to step up and tell the pope he was wrong- then Saint Paul stood up and opened his mouth and corrected Saint Peter.  Peter accepted the correction and world didn't end.  Should it be any different today? 

I don't have to list all the things this pope has said and done over the last few years - you all know what I am talking about.

Is there no one at the Vatican willing to correct Pope Francis?  No one? No backbones to be found among the clergy?  What a disgrace!

Is it to fall to the laity here and there around the world, whom the pope probably doesn't hear and wouldn't listen to anyway, to speak up?

I know everyone sees it - including clergy, too many simply will not tell the truth about what we all see happening. 

Shame on you for your silence, souls are being lost and you sit by and do nothing to stop it!

In Christ and weeping, 

Julie @ Connecticut Catholic Corner 


Catholic Church teaching (before Pope Francis): 


2353 Fornication is carnal union between an unmarried man and an unmarried woman. It is gravely contrary to the dignity of persons and of human sexuality which is naturally ordered to the good of spouses and the generation and education of children. Moreover, it is a grave scandal when there is corruption of the young.

2396 Among the sins gravely contrary to chastity are masturbation, fornication, pornography, and homosexual practices.

Diocese of San Jose video

Anyone else think this video shouldn't be on the Diocese of San Jose, CA's website because its misleading?

(*note what is said at the 1:33 point*)
