Is this what your Bishop is teaching you?
From NewChristorchaos.com May 16, 2013: No Need to Get Serious About Things, You Know Jorge Mario Bergoglio (Pope Francis)used an address Caritas International on May 16, 2013, session to berate those who want what they think is the Catholic Church to take herself “too seriously”: VATICAN CITY (CNS) — The Catholic Church needs to revive its loving and tender side, which gets lost when the church becomes too serious, Pope Francis said. The church has ended up with “deviations, sects and heresies when it got too serious, that is, when it took things here too seriously and it forgot about embracing and tenderness,” he told representatives of Caritas Internationalis — the umbrella organization of national Catholic charities around the world. The maternal, tender side of the church is a value “that the mother church cannot lose,” he said. The pope made his comments during a 45-minute informal meeting with Caritas Internationalis’ executive committee, its secretary-general, Michel Roy; and its president, Honduran Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga of Tegucigalpa. Regional presidents of the Vatican-based umbrella group presented summaries of the situation in their regions. Roy also presented the pope with a small basket of bread to symbolize the more than 1 billion people who go hungry in the world and to highlight a new campaign Caritas will launch this year to fight world hunger. The pope talked about 15 minutes off-the-cuff in Spanish, responding broadly to questions representatives had posed earlier. He touched on four points in his remarks: the crises plaguing the world, love, development and spirituality. “A church without charity doesn’t exist,” the pope said, thanking Caritas for its “dual dimensions” of social action and mystical, spiritual dimension. “Caritas is the church’s caress to her people,” showing tenderness and understanding toward their needs, he said, according to partial translations supplied by Vatican Radio and the Vatican newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano. “The search for truth and the study of the Catholic truth are other important dimensions of the church which are carried out by theologians” and transmitted through catechesis and exegesis. “Caritas is the love inside the mother church that approaches, embraces and loves” people, he said. (When church is too serious, it loses its loving, tender side, Bergoglio says.) Tell you what, Jorge, we don’t take you very seriously as you try to posit a false dichotomy between Holy Mother Church’s obligations to teach the immutable truths contained in the Sacred Deposit of Faith in all of their Holy Integrity and “caritas” as true love wills the good of the other, the ultimate expression of which is the salvation of his immortal soul. It is not “charitable” to leave unrepentant sinners without correct or, worse yet, to reaffirm them in their sins. It is not “charitable” to let heretics poison the minds of Catholics and non-Catholics alike. It is not “charitable” to reaffirm adherents of false religions in their falsehoods and/or to give even the slightest impression that those false religions are pleasing in the sight of the true God of Divine Revelation, the Most Blessed Trinity. It is not “charitable” to engage in “inter-religious prayer” or to treat places of false worship as “sacred” in the eyes of God. Catholics believe in the Spiritual Works of Mercy, Jorge. Here is a little review for you: To instruct the ignorant. To counsel the doubtful. To admonish sinners. To bear wrongs patiently; To forgive offences willingly; To comfort the afflicted; To pray for the living and the dead. Catholics also believe that there are nine ways that they can be accessories to the sins of others: 1. By counsel. 2. By command. 3. By consent. 4. By provocation. 5. By praise or flattery of the evil done. 6. By silence. 7. By connivance. 8. By partaking. 9. By defense of the ill done. Conciliarism is by its very false nature uncharitable as it makes a mockery of the authentic, immutable teaching that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ by making it appear that it is somehow opposed to tenderness and mercy to follow these words that Saint Paul wrote in his Second Epistle to Saint Timothy:  I charge thee, before God and Jesus Christ, who shall judge the living and the dead, by his coming, and his kingdom: Preach the word: be instant in season, out of season: reprove, entreat, rebuke in all patience and doctrine.  For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears:  And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables.  But be thou vigilant, labour in all things, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill thy ministry. Be sober. (2 Tim. 4: 1-15.) As we know all to well, Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis does not take this kind of “stuff” seriously. That was in the past. Saint Thomas Aquinas was just too “serious.” So were all those who attended Holy Mother Church’s true general councils, especially the Council of Florence, the Council of Trent and the [First] Vatican Council as they put the Church into a “box” wherein she is alleged to have lost her “tenderness” and “mercy” and “charity for the poor.” Well, here is what the Apostle of Charity, Saint Francis de Sales, had to say on the matter: The declared enemies of God and His Church, heretics and schismatics, must be criticized as much as possible, as long as truth is not denied. It is a work of charity to shout: “Here is the wolf!” when it enters the flock or anywhere else. (Saint Francis de Sales, Introduction to the Devout Life, part III, chap. 29) Jorge Mario Bergoglio does not take seriously, for example, the Catholic Church’s consistent condemnations of his own beliefs and actions, which are those of the conciliar revolution itself, as he promotes propositions that are contrary to right reason and Divine Revelation.
