All over the Catholic world, statements are being made by the pope, cardinals, bishops, religious and priests about compassion for people in adultery and homosexual relationships. This is giving people arms to attack any priest or bishop who may uphold true Catholic and biblical teaching on the sinful nature of these sexual unions.
But from the beginning of the creation, God made them male and female. For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother; and shall cleave to his wife. And they two shall be in one flesh. Therefore now they are not two, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. And in the house again his disciples asked him concerning the same thing.
And he saith to them: Whosoever shall put away his wife and marry another, committeth adultery against her. Mark 10:6-11
Animated by what the pope has said and the issues being discussed at the ‘supposed’ Extraordinary Synod on the family, an Italian reporter went to confession and secretly recorded what response she would get from the priest confessing her. (The article says prelate which usually means bishop.)
Laura Alari who writes for Quotidiano Nazionale ‘went to Confession several times, inventing delicate issues for herself:
- she pretended to be a lesbian mother asking to baptize her daughter;
- a woman who cohabitates with her same-sex partner;
- and a divorced and civilly remarried woman who receives Communion every Sunday.’ CNA
She ‘wrote that the priest who confessed her suggested she could change parish so as “not to create a scandal,” and asked her to consider seeking the annulment of her failed marriage from a Catholic court — a costly procedure.’
“I am telling you what the Church is asking, but at the end it is you who must make a choice,” the prelate reportedly said.
He was also quoted as telling her that it was up to her conscience how to behave.
“It’s clear that from my position, I will never tell you that you can take the communion, as long as the church recognizes only one matrimony. But I will never tell you either that you cannot take it,“‘ ArcaMax
From this evil taping of a confession, God is also revealing the bad priest or prelate who, said what the church teaches, but in the end says to do what your conscience dictates. The conscience is to be ‘a formed conscience’ that adultery is immoral.
In a way you can see why we have so much sin going on. Because priests are not condemning sin in confessions. My theory is that the priests hearing confessions also want to decide that their own sin is not sin because they have justified it by convincing their conscience that it is not sin. Then they do not feel guilty about their personal sin. ‘You do what your conscience tells you, I do what may conscience tells me.’
For us traditional bishops and priests, it is becoming more and more dangerous to speak Catholic and biblical truth about sin. The pope and many cardinals, bishops, religious and priests are watering down the faith, confusing people and justifying sin.
Then if a true bishop or priest says the truth, they are attacked by the media, parents and the chancellory. It is all preparation for the antichrist. If you do not go along with the devil’s lies, you will be persecuted, sued and silenced. Eventually it will be imprisonment and later, possibly the death sentence.
We are so blessed to be traditional Catholics and to know that heaven is our home, not here.
