PopeWatch: Pope-a-ganda

The new guidelines for seminarians seek to transform our future priests into radical environmental propagandists:

 

 

Citing Pope Francis, the text censures “committed and prayerful Christians” who under the pretext of realism and pragmatism “ridicule expressions of concern for the environment.” The document, titled “The Gift of the Priestly Vocation,” calls on these Christians to undergo an “ecological conversion” so that their faith in Christ will “become evident in their relationship with the world around  them.

This ecological conversion must be “profound” and “interior,” the text states, because being protectors of the environment “is not an optional or a secondary aspect of our Christian experience.”

The guidelines say that “it will be necessary for future priests to be highly sensitive to this theme and, through the requisite Magisterial and theological guidance, help to acknowledge the appeal, immensity and urgency of the challenge we face.”

“This must then be applied to their future priestly ministry, making them promoters of an appropriate care for everything connected to the protection of creation,” it reads.

 

Go here to read the rest.  This Pontificate has an alarming propensity to ignore old sins on the grounds of mercy while imposing new sins.  The call for an “ecological conversion” would be Monty Python funny if it were not the Vicar of Christ calling for this kidnapping of Christian devotion for raw political gamesmanship.

  • I read about this several days ago. This Pope seems to think that man can create a paradise on Earth if he just practices socialism and environmentalism. But St. Peter in one of his epistles says that can will melt the elements with fervent heat and nothing will be left.

  • Question.
    Will this ( ecological conversion ) be salvific.

    When Jesus was lost for three days his Mother and Joseph found him in the Temple.
    To Mary’s rebuke Jesus replied; “Did you not know that I must be about my Father’s business?” Luke 2:49

    Is PF concerned about Our Father’s business?
    What is the most important part of His business in relationship to us?
    Is it not salvation?

    Eternal Salvation?

    My guess is that the new Heaven and the new Earth isn’t to be God’s doing but our’s… according to the ecological conversion to be promoted.

    Climate change is inside our hearts not the world. The hearts of men should be the primary focus of change, for this reason Christ suffered and died for us. I’ve read; “Our hearts are restless until they rest in you Lord.” St. Augustine. True. A concern for ecological restoration is secondary to the restoration of man’s heart. There…and only there is where the conversion is of absolute importance.

  • “This Pontificate has an alarming propensity to ignore old sins on the grounds of mercy while imposing new sins. ”

    Exactly. I dare say that this Pontificate seems to enjoy being with the spirit of the world. To be loved, rather than love.

  • Harming marriage and now the priesthood. Diabolical.

  • Lets use this popes dishonesty against him and his equally dishonest supporters:

    Sure, its all about the environment. So, instead of tending to the poor, or supporting our Church, lets take this bull by the horns.

    The environment and ‘her’ non-human inhabitants are entirely dismissive of the social engineering that claims LBGTQ is ‘normal’ and consistent with human fitness, and it rejects ‘gay marriage’ as the death of a species it is, and it embraces true Marriage as the pair bonding behavior that optimizes fitness. The environment does not recognize “oppression’, or ‘inequality’ or racial or sex quotas.

    Let the games begin.

  • Where are zeal for the glory of God and the salvation of souls?

  • Now you’re sounding like Elijah or one of the other great prophets, T Shaw. The liberal clerics hate that. I can only imagine how many lavender clothed priests and bishops you may have embarrassed. ?

  • All I could think was “what a lousy pope”.
    But it wouldn’t be right to say that in a combox, nor would TAC allow it,…
    …so I won’t.
    Neither should the rest of you deplorables.
    Sorry. Heavy sigh.

  • ExNOAAman.

    I feel sorry for him.

    A case of the Peter principal gone wild.

  • Questions. Was the text printed on paper obtained by cutting down a sacred tree? Or was it transmitted electronically, thereby using the ugly energy obtained through the raping of the earth, coal? The irony and the horror!

  • Here we have another example of Pope Francis sweeping the Catholic Church clean of Catholic doctrine to make it ready for utopian Communism. What’s next? An environmental catechism we might suppose. God help us soon–very soon.

  • Sadly, for some years now, I have known orthodox students here who have told me that they learned early on to keep their mouths shut and their heads down, from initial contact with admissions officers to professors, especially about Jesus giving the power to ordain only men as His priests and about the sinfulness of voluntarily engaging in homosexual sex. One man, ordained some years ago now, said these were some of the most difficult times in his life. Irony of ironies, Jorge Bergoglio speaks on the feast of St Lucy, and either he will respond here as a true shepherd to dubias of the faithful, or he will respond when God says to him: “Joreg, will there be faultfinding of God Almighty by a critic? Gird up your loins, lest you wet your self, for now I will questio and you WILL answer.” Why irony re feast of St Lucy? Jorge B, you got some ‘splaining to do. [my apologies to Ricky Ricardo].

  • Man is the glory of God. Hell freezing over, the fire and brimstone of hell, the molten sulfur, Satan, the smoke of Satan, have brought about global warming, climate change, and global freezing.
    Pope Francis addressing those “committed and prayerful Christians” who under the pretext of realism and pragmatism “ridicule expressions of concern for the environment.” fails to acknowledge that “committed and prayerful Christians” follow God’s command to steward creation. Ridicule of Satan is very effective to drive the “climate changer” demon from our midst.”People as pollution” is the “climate changer’s” hoax. Ridicule of the “Climate Changer” by committed and prayerful Christians is the means to drive Satan away.
    “My delight is to be among the Sons of Men” Jesus Christ.

  • Go get ’em Mary DeVoe! You are exactly correct. Down with people.

  • How dare St Joseph cut down CO2 consuming trees to use their raw product in his carpentry business–seeking a…gasp…profit by abusing the environment. And that Noah fellow, building that ark out of wood….
    Aren’t we lucky that God gifted mankind with resources so that we could “protect them,” perhaps hiding them under a rock as in the parable of the ten talents.

    Bless me father for I had more than 2.1 children…..

  • One wonders at the work of God ! We know that forest fires do clean the forest of bad wood and allow a fresh new beginning

  • Don’t forget “the volcanos”.

    Everyone is for renewable energy, but climate change? its called weather.

  • “Everyone is for renewable energy…”
    .
    Only if it is a fast neutron breeder reactor making more U-233 out of Th-232 or Pu-239 out of U-238 than it consumes. Now that’s renewable. The rest – solar and wind – is useless worthless crap.

  • I do not have words to express my horror re: this matter.

  • LQC-Now you’ve gone and done it-Jorge B is going to proclaim a new dogma about the eating solar and wind fetish. How about we call it “useless worthless bergogliite.” And Mary DV-keep on keepin’ on! Guy McClung
