VATICAN BOMBSHELLS OF MERCY: POPE FRANCIS LABORING ON LABOR DAY



Nice robes on those Scribes and Pharisees! Almost like Fr Zuhlsdorf had picked them out!

But who knew Gammarelli had a Jerusalem franchise open way back then?!

Hope the Bitter Bag O' Onions and the rest of the grim reaper sedevacantists over at RETROrate can manage to enjoy Labor Day, even though any thought of Jesus being merciful through His Church drives them nuts. (I know, that's a very SHORT drive! Like moving to New York City will be for their Bishop Cagey-Uh-Know-Nuttin'! if Francis doesn't hang around too long! But I digress!).

Because bright and early this AM (well, over here. It was Roman Noon over there), the Vatican Press Office made the surprise announcement that Pope Francis' Mission of Mercy takes another step forward tomorrow when two letters motu proprio, "on my own initiative" are issued regarding the reform of the annulment process for both the Latin and the Eastern Churches:


Mitis Iudex Dominus Iesus
Lord Jesus, The Meek Judge


and


Mitis et Misericors Iesus
The Meek and Merciful Jesus

Both of which descriptions of the Wrathful King Jesus Wreaking Havoc and Destruction on the Enemies of the Eleven Whack Job Cardinals Who Hate Lay People And Especially Sinners and Want to Keep Jesus Locked Safely in the Tabernacle Away from Such Sinful Scum (so unlike them) drive our Krazy Katholic Konverts in the Kraposphere even krazier.

Anyhow . . . read all about it here, where Rocco Palmo, as always, has a terrific story about it up bright and early!

Why isn't Jesus looking at those nice robes?
He must not have appreciated proper clerical dress or beautiful liturgical vestments
(like someone else we know these days).

Oh no! Don't tell me He's going to give her Communion!

  1. all due respect Father D but those aren't Glamorelli Glad Rags--they are far to masculine in their color and simple lines I mean a heterosexual male might even feel comfortable in them no self-respecting Daughter of Trent would sashay out on the streets of Jerusalem or Malta so simply dressed. no, no, where is the lace? where are the buttons and bows? Where is the screaming pink satin finishes? the feathered boas. this will never do

  3. A bishop friend of mine who said they always get a confidential heads-up on news like this said he knew nothing about it. Nor did any of his friends (other bishops). He said they were all laughing on the phone this AM saying they think it's Francis' response to those Eleven Asshole (my friend's word!) Cardinals and whacko Jesuit and Benny student Father Fessio at what you Father D like to call Obnoxious (Ignatius) Press! GO GET EM UNCLE FRANK!!!!

    1. Well, well, well, and my boyfriend just lit up, looks like storm clouds ahead. I am reminded that there is only ONE commandment which means anything at Cathedral Square.....thou shalt NOT touch the Do-Re-Me. Looking like a new fee schedule is on the horizon for the magic kingdom's "today your married and tomorrow your not" second time's the charm service.

      My boyfriend made mention that it just isn't fair (or really fun) anymore trying to take from those desperate to get married all that do-re-me, which of course, keeps the magic kingdom afloat. There will have to be a new scam to replace this old scam to keep the do-re-me flowing in the land of scotch and honey!

    3. Janet dear, is this blurb from Drudge about YOUR boss? Oh my! As you would say, take it from Janet and so many have. *LAUGHTER* You and your BF and Boss must be peas in a pod. Or ?

      quote from Drudge on Conservative Rebellion in Vatican:

      In an open letter to his diocese, Bishop Thomas Tobin of Providence, R.I., wrote: “In trying to accommodate the needs of the age, as Pope Francis suggests, the Church risks the danger of losing its courageous, countercultural, prophetic voice, one that the world needs to hear.” For his part, Burke, the cardinal from Wisconsin, has called the church under Francis “a ship without a rudder.”

  5. I'll have to read the motus carefully, to see if it makes it easier to petition for an annulment, or actually to get an annulment. Can I hope for both? Relevant to my interests, as I've just begun. Preparing the documents has been a bear, and the whole process seems pretty immitis (or immite).

  6. What will the pseudo-Anglicans do now? All this mercy may be too much for them. Perhaps they'll flee to the Orthodox Church. Alas, they may be put off by the practice of economia. Three chances for marriage may be difficult. The most horrid may be the repetition of Kyrie, Eleison for up to forty times each

  8. It's getting REALLY ugly.....this evening on Drudge, a top splash article was posted

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/europe/a-conservative-revolt-is-brewing-inside-the-vatican/2015/09/07/1d8e02ba-4b3d-11e5-80c2-106ea7fb80d4_story.html

    In this article, there are somewhat veiled threats leveled against Francis and even Tabby T is quoted. The TIMING is interesting and my boyfriend and me were wondering if this was done on purpose to maybe influence the release scheduled for tomorrow??

  9. I just read an article in our local rag that most Catholics who have left the church can never see themselves going back again even though they do like Pope Francis.

      Fr. Z, I think a correction is in order. You’re typically extremely diligent with vetting sources. This was an anonymous internet claim that a simple Google search reveals was known to be inaccurate for weeks.
      ____
      When has Father Z ever retracted post or admitted an error? Has it ever been done?



      This one is also interesting. It comes from someone with an Irish first name and an Irish symbol of the trinity for her avatar:

      I’m with Father Z on this one. I do believe that some of these people are refugees. However, you can be sure that what you are watching is a ‘quiet’ Islamic invasion of Europe. They are playing on people’s emotions and it’s working, as they knew it would. I hope that I am proved wrong but I think it’s time to double our prayers.


      _____
      Fiona, if you're indeed Irish, or worse, Irish-American, shame on you! If we could only give you a time machine, so you could meet your ancestors in the 1840's. I'd love to hear you explain why migrants religion makes a damn bit of difference to whether they deserve help. I think they'd probably punch you in the throat before long, if they weren't too weak from hunger and dysentery. Do you have any idea at all who the Know-Nothings were? Trust me when I tell you it would be a lot less important to those you came from that you're an upstanding Catholic girl and much more important that you're a person of generosity to all. Go read a history of An Gorta Mór before you shame their memory again.

    3. I may be banned again for it. Oh well, I travel often enough to get around that IP block. Rev Zuhlsdorf claims to be studying for a doctorate, and should be prouder of his intellectual honesty. t I've seen this sort of failure to retract or correct often enough that I now suspect the error is known before it is posted on his blog to serve his purposes. He's a very smart man and seems to even be a scholar. It is disappointing that he doesn't demonstrate more integrity.

      Delete
    4. I suspect that Zuhlsdorf has been playing the self-delusional games practising fraud for so long now that he no longer has any genuine moral sense at all.
      Every thing in his psyche has reduced to a primitive form of resentment which projects itself into monumental self-loathing and contempt for those who make his ultimately destructive life of self indulgence possible.

      I think that when he finally disintegrates or is publicly exposed for what he is then the mess will take a small army to clean up.

    5. "Every thing in his psyche has reduced to a primitive form of resentment"

      yes, and that would describe every reactionary

    6. I don't know what to make of it. I've never met him and I wouldn't want to judge a personality over the internet. To me it seems that the emotion being expressed at that blog by Rev. Zuhlsdorf and his comment following is overwhelming anger. It would be wise to reconsider the image that projects.

  11. It suits Brass Ass' strategy of inciting hysteria, fear and paranoia in everything and everywhere especially in regard to what might negatively impact on his pious trinkets and the 1570 for cash warehouse enterprise.
    He has no interest in truth, honor, decency or the people who bankroll his inertia, laziness, pretence and overinflated sense of clerical entitlement.

    A strong Eschatology is very helpful.

  12. I loved this comment from JuliB on Z' post about the annulment reform:

    "This is a bit frustrating. My SO* and I have been working on his application (we’re on the last 10-12 questions of the 100 question section) and had planned on getting it submitted shortly. December is close, but I think we should get it in sooner rather than later. I think things will be chaotic once things start changing.

    The fees in our Diocese are low ($175). Someone needs to pay for salaries, time, etc. The Diocese underwrites a large portion of it, which ensures that I donate appropriately to the annual appeal.

    snip

    * Yes, I know that one shouldn’t date before an annulment is granted, but we had started dating while I had just come back to the Church (after 25 years of atheism). He had faltered in his commitment to the Church at times, was a bit more cafeteria than he would acknowledge, and had (has, to an extent) issues with recognizing the Church’s authority. As my faith and orthodoxy has grown, I believe his has started to become deeper as well. We do our best to follow the Church’s expectations of a non-marital relationship."

    Honestly, I only blow him like 3 times a week. And I'm always sorry afterward

      CQ CQ CQ #HamRadio Saturday – of Vatican Radio and Geomagnetic Storms
      Posted on 12 September 2015 by Fr. John Zuhlsdorf

      "On the cusp of Sunday last, sleepless, I turned on my rig and heard on 40m at 7250 Vatican Radio’s morning broadcast of Mass in Latin (OF). The celebrant sounded French. You can get VR’s Rome station 105FM perfectly over the interwebs, of course…. now.
      This called up from memory my first year of U.S. seminary. I would turn on a tiny short wave radio, a German Philips about the size of a cigarette pack with a wire attachable antenna, and try to hear Vatican Radio. Those were hard days. So hungry were we for sanity that even Vatican Radio sounded good. It was as if I… we … were in the gulag listening to a contraband radio hidden under the barrack’s floorboards as the searchlights flashed passed the barred wooden shutters. Lookouts peered through cracks in the walls for the patrolling guards. Those were hard days, I can tell you. The walls and wire, the dogs, the food – or lack of it. The constant psychological manipulation, incessant harassment and punishment for tiny infraction like citing Trent or wearing black socks. But we made it. I made it, at least. I tunnelled out of there and went to Rome to finish up. But the scars… the scars… they will never leave me now. Even now I can see the faces of the men who were lost. The faces…
      But on to happier themes."

  15. Check out Zero's latest xenophobic and anti-Muslim rant on the refugee crisis. While the Pope is calling for refugees in Vatican City, he is going on and on in an anti-Muslim screed completely ignoring Nostra Aetate which like the rest of his SSPX cohorts he denies. Still, his Bishop allows him to go on and on.....

    1. Trouble is, his bishop is in Villetri-Segni. The Dirigible in Madison simply uses Brass Ass as a proxy flag flyer on contentious issues. He watches to see what kind of a response on hot issues can be expected from the lunar Right wing then takes a position slightly to more moderate than that in order to appear reasonable and responsible.

  16. I dare Mark Thomas to cut and paste a section of Nostra Aetate. I will bet a package of ammo two black helicopters that Z will censor it!! Yep Z will actually censor and not publish a section of a Vatican II document. Here is the relevant section:

    The Church, therefore, exhorts her sons, that through dialogue and collaboration with the followers of other religions, carried out with prudence and love and in witness to the Christian faith and life, they recognize, preserve and promote the good things, spiritual and moral, as well as the socio-cultural values found among these men.

    3. The Church regards with esteem also the Moslems. They adore the one God, living and subsisting in Himself; merciful and all- powerful, the Creator of heaven and earth,(5) who has spoken to men; they take pains to submit wholeheartedly to even His inscrutable decrees, just as Abraham, with whom the faith of Islam takes pleasure in linking itself, submitted to God. Though they do not acknowledge Jesus as God, they revere Him as a prophet. They also honor Mary, His virgin Mother; at times they even call on her with devotion. In addition, they await the day of judgment when God will render their deserts to all those who have been raised up from the dead. Finally, they value the moral life and worship God especially through prayer, almsgiving and fasting.

    Since in the course of centuries not a few quarrels and hostilities have arisen between Christians and Moslems, this sacred synod urges all to forget the past and to work sincerely for mutual understanding and to preserve as well as to promote together for the benefit of all mankind social justice and moral welfare, as well as peace and freedom.
