Pope Francis, a praise of glory
I commented on the first chapter of this encyclical that assesses the damage caused by fifty years of conciliar reformation, even in creation, ever since the Church saw fit to believe in the myth of progress. The following chapter lays the foundations for a restoration, under the title : “ The Gospel of the Creation ”.
According to Die Welt: “ The Catholic Church is currently in a transitional phase : Pope Francis is encouraging the Church to evolve, which clearly antagonises the conservatives. ” “ The conservatives ” of what? Of the Second Vatican Council ! Does that mean that there is a contradiction between Pope Francis’ line and that of the “ Emeritus Pope ” ? Indeed there is !
Joan, remember !
Today there is great distress in the Kingdom of France, even more so than long ago when she was under heel of the English or in more recent times under the heel of the Germans. Our country is the hostage of demons come out of Hell. Yet she remains the Kingdom of Jesus and Mary, just as the Church, despite an adulterous Council, steadfastly remains the Spouse of Jesus Christ.
“ Praise be to you, my Lord ! ”
Everything that flows from the mouth or the pen of this Pope is limpid like “ our sister water. ” Unlike his immediate predecessors, he does not put his faith in man but in God. Consequently he is able to lay out the principles of an integral ecology, at the furthest remove from both Jacques Maritain’s integral humanism and Paul VI’s integral development.
The encyclical Laudato si ’, mi ’ Signore, Praise be to you, my Lord
Nothing could be more Franciscan than this call that Pope Francis makes in his encyclical for an “integral” ecology, in other words, a “Catholic” ecology: encompassing the whole of creation and all creatures. Next month, we will begin a series of articles commenting on this encyclical “with openheartedness,” according to the wish of our Holy Father.
A Christian reading of the Qur’an
A Christian reading is first and foremost a scientific reading, that is to say, one that is preoccupied with historical truth. The Qur’an is a document of the past that must be explained by using the principles of the historical and critical method, which have long been in use in the study of the Bible. To apply oneself to doing this leads to marvellous and fascinating discoveries.
The Whole Truth about Marthe Robin, a Mystery of the Apocalypse
The revelation of the greatest mystical and apostolic hoax of all times, and what is more, a revelation made by the postulator, whose task it is to prove the holiness of she who perpetrated the hoax, is a clear sign that God is still at work in His Church. Men of the Church cannot dispense with the great doctrinal trial requested by Fr. de Nantes.
Our apostolic mandate, letter of st. Pius X, of august 25, 1910
“Our Apostolic Mandate requires from Us that We watch over the purity of the Faith and the integrity of Catholic discipline. It requires from Us that We protect the faithful from evil and error; especially so when they are presented in dynamic language which, concealing vague notions and ambiguous expressions with emotional and high-sounding words, is likely to set ablaze the hearts of men in pursuit of ideals which, whilst attractive, are nonetheless nefarious.”
Saint Joseph, our Great Protector
« The humble Joseph is little known », complained Saint Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort at the beginning of the eighteenth century. Three centuries later, we are still deploring the same ignorance and indifference towards him. Let us hear the lesson that saint Joseph tries to infuse in our souls, and in the whole Church.
To our Holy Father, Pope Francis, the Father of the Poor
We find ourselves in the situation of the “poor of Yahweh” who, in the last times of the Old Covenant, gave forth their heartrending complaint by the Psalms, in order to appeal for the coming of the Messiah. At the end of our Community retreat, we became fond of them. We want to imitate them because we understand that they prepared the Gospel.
The mystery of Jesus
The mystery of Jesus
The only means to save the Church is to re-examine the central issue of man’s destiny and of the eternal Mystery of Jesus in all its components, and to give it a completely satisfactory solution to which all minds may adhere. Only kerygmatic theology can achieve this aim.
GEORGES DE NANTES The Mystical Doctor of the Catholic Faith
16. The appeal to the infallible magisterium
Bishop Le Couëdic thought that he could easily silence Fr. de Nantes, this importunate and sole opponent of the Vatican II, by threatening him with a sanction. “ If I were to surrender to the terrible threats of your spiritual power[...], ” our Father replied to him, “ I would be unable to do so without losing my faith in the Holy Church of Jesus Christ. ”
15. At the Council, the sect seized power
“ It is only the violent love I bear for my Mother that leads me to tear, to snatch from her face and her body magnificently adorned by God Himself, these loathsome rags, these soiled and sacrilegious cloths in which the World and our Times seek to clothe her. I shall carry my cry to the end. I will plead for my Mother. ”
