Synod Preamble . . . The Pope’s Extraordinary But Perilous Policy

Excellent article; admittedly, I had to read and reread slowly to feel sure I understood the points, warnings and implications.I ved through the time of the Second Vatican Council while still quite young, I remember the “lost feeling” so many Catholics had at the various “newnesses”, esp. in language, which somehow seemed (to me) to diminish The CatholicChurch ! I imagine many readers are familiar with EWTN (EternalWordNetworkTelevision), with a worldwide presence! Prior to Pope Francis I historic visit to the USA, Setp. 2015, I contacted EWTN in its Q&A arena, over 2-3 weeks posing two questions (1 ea time) regarding Papal Political Activism, as I was becoming concerned since this Pope’s elevation/election by COC in Rome three years ago–concerned about his many very public statements reflecting a clearly liberal voice & position on matters of Politics and social issues within sovereign Nations & nation-states, seemingly viewing the NWO (new world order) as a done deal, while still talking about justice, love, equality, noting females should be educated, all religious accepted, with no delineation addresing any ‘religion’ which expresses itself in violence, vengeance, oppression and total ‘codified’ control in the name of ‘religion’! My ?’s to EWTN were much shorter, simply regarding “Papal Activism”; still wawiting response which I not sure will be forthcoming!
Yes, of course, dialog is healthy, a dialog which contains prayer and thought, some knowledge of an issues history; yet, as an American Catholic, many things are exactly what they are, have been, and will always be (no matter who says or writes what or labels it in celestial & poetic Latin), God’s Law, The Teaching of of Jesus, are not subject to revision based on the social mores of the day or the inclinations of those who only wish for the State to replace God!
Interesting and accurate the article concludes with reference to the Gates of Hell and God’s promise they will never prevail against The Church, but, of necessity, goes on to note, that is, if we don’t attack them!
The current Pontifical Positions seem, at least in part to, be taking a most dangerous path descending directly & aggressively toward the ‘gates of evil’–and with what consequence?
God Bless and Help Pope Francis to see Your Everlasting Will for Your Church, and Grant Him Your Blessing to truly be a Faithful Successor to Saint Peter and The-Son-of God, Jesus Christ, through The Wisdom of the Holy Spirit, Amen!

Catholicism Pure & Simple

In light of the fast approaching Synod of the Family, here is an excellent article written for The Wanderer by Louise Kirk:

September 24, 2015

Synod-on-the-Family-imageThe time of Pope Francis’ visit to the U.S. has arrived as I write this. Each stage of his journey, in Washington, New York, and Philadelphia, promises individual riches but will also be watched by the world as a preamble to the Synod of the Family happening in October.
The Holy Father is aware of this. In a direct challenge to the Obergefell v. Hodges Supreme Court ruling he recently urged Catholic married couples to take up the defense of marriage between one man and one woman as a mission entrusted to them.
He explained that this mission is all the more important given that “the image of the family — as God wills it, made up of one man and one woman, in view…
