Canada's Pope

Well, when you run your mouth off all the time the press will pick up on it. Correct or not, someone  should really tell him to stop talking.

Archdiocese of Vancouver Supports Cardinal's Dubia






After several conflicting reports,rumours,Twitter & Facebook posts the BC Catholic, (Official newspaper of the Archdiocese of Vancouver), has published over the past few issues, true support for traditional marriage. It is no secret that the Archdiocese of Vancouver is a conservative Diocese, considering we live in the granola police capital of Canada, it's a good thing. Are there problems here?...of course, but we have it pretty good.


The BC Catholic newspaper has, I believed redeemed itself with it's last several issues in regards to the AL crisis in the Church. Good for them, Good for the BC Catholic newspaper. I am including a few links and quotes from articles to demonstrate where FAITHFUL Catholics stand.

I do not agree with everything Msgr.Pedro Lopez-Gallo writes but it can be said, He is not a coward. Msgr. has seen many things in his life and I am happy that he is speaking clearly...the truth, when Catholics ask. That is all we ask.

Feb.20/2017

From the article “The Dignity of Marriage Crumbles Before Adultery”


“But such a declaration by the Maltese bishops is CONTRARY and OPPOSED to the traditional Catholic teaching that living in adultery is to be in MORTAL SIN, that five elements are necessary to make a good confession, and to receive Communion one must be in a STATE OF GRACE."


"Document not in line with teachings of previous Popes
by Msgr. Pedro Lopez-Gallo “


"Many Catholics report being troubled as they ponder Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia (The Joy of Love).I too was disconcerted when it was published in March 2016”
“It is hard to believe the Pope’s response to the questions of the four Cardinals was absolute silence. And now, out of the blue, the long period of silence has been broken with the publication of the guidelines of Malta’s bishops, WHO ALLOWED THEIR DIVORCED AND CIVILLY REMARRIED FAITHFUL TO RECEIVE COMMUNION.”
*(Actually they can’t be faithful if this is the case but….meh you get the point)*

“Pope Benedict XVI condemned CLEARLY and finally the theory of the INTERNAL FORUM, and I an unnerved not so much by the commentaries of the bishops, BUT BY THE ATTITUDE OF THE HOLY FATHER, WHO APPEARS TO BE ENCOURAGING BISHOPS TO MODIFY THE THEOLOGY OF SIN AND CONFESSION."


Pope Pornholio





"In those days there appeared in Israel transgressors of the law who seduced many, saying: “Let us go and make a covenant with the Gentiles all around us; since we separated from them, many evils have come upon us.” The proposal was agreeable; some from among the people promptly went to the king, and he authorized them to introduce the ordinances of the Gentiles. Thereupon THEY BUILT A GYMNASIUM in Jerusalem according to the Gentile custom. They disguised their circumcision and abandoned the holy covenant; they allied themselves with the Gentiles and sold themselves to wrongdoing."
1 Maccabees 1:11-15

Great job!  Pay attention blind pew sitters and coward priests.





Father Paul Goo


A priest in the Archdiocese of Vancouver needs your prayers, he is clearly struggling (as we all are) with the current situation in the Church today. I knew this Priest even before he was in seminary, and lately we have been engaging in an on line forum. He blocked me from engaging with him anymore in the forum or FB...why? he never told me. I'm sure I must have done something terrible, something that deserves NO MERCY and NO DIALOGUE and NO EXPLANATION, or perhaps I was just pointing out the truth, the truth scares a lot of people, even Priests.

What a coincidence the next day............

The next day Fr.Goo delivers a homily and posts it on line about BULLIES (BOLD FACED RED)
The first three lines really show the level of frustration that this Priest is going through. There is also a claim of "recent harassment that was sheer nastiness" and brings up a scripture verse of Jesus calling one an 'evildoer'.

Here is the text of that sermon:

"BULLY"


"Have you ever felt that you have had enough with someone, that you don't want to hear one more word out of that person’s mouth, that you would be better off if that person were cut off from your life?

That person is an enemy.

You have heard, "Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you" (Mt 5:44).
This saying of Jesus should challenge you if you have ever felt the temptation to cut off someone from your life.

I know I am challenged. In fact, I find this saying of Jesus practically impossible to live out.

I recall an instance when someone harassed me with sheer nastiness. Has that ever happened to you? In my case, to make the matter worse, the harassment triggered me. It reminded me of the times when I was bullied as a child.

But Jesus said, "Do not resist an evildoer. But if anyone strikes you on the right cheek, turn the other also" (v. 39).

When I read that, I was not only challenged but also scandalized. Isn’t turning the other cheek a gesture of enabling abuse? Isn’t that the last thing you would want to do?

How are we to understand what Jesus is saying?

To be sure, Jesus is not telling us to be a doormat. When someone harasses you, you should not let that person continue. That is against reason. God does not want you to be harassed. You are “the temple of God” (1 Cor 3:16). “If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person” (v. 17), says St. Paul in today’s second reading.

Then what is He saying?

Well, there are several things to note.
First, note that Jesus also said, "Be perfect therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect" (Mt 5:48). Such perfection is unattainable on earth. He is pointing to a very, very high bar.
Nonetheless, it does not mean we can ignore this calling. It is an ideal worth pursuing. To love even those who harass us is an ideal worth pursuing. St. Thomas Aquinas says there can be perfection in the extent of our love (cf. II-IIae q. 184, a. 2). If we love not only our friends but also strangers and even enemies, we would in fact be “doing more than others” (Mt 5:47).
The second thing to note is this ideal should make us realize how weak we really are. For all the talk we do about love in the society, we are not very good at loving. We get offended easily, and we forgive hardly.
A bit of humility would serve us well here. I took a step back and thought about what happened to me. Then I recalled that there were moments when I harassed some people. I have said uncharitable words and insulted people on occasions, swinging the yardstick of truth.
If it wasn't for Jesus' challenge to a perfect love, I would not have realized that.

The third thing to note is how Jesus walked the talk. Look at the Cross. He was harassed, insulted, and bullied. He endured the worst. For what? For love. Love not just for those who loved Him but even for those who abused Him.

It is an unfathomable love. Just as 'loving enemies and turning the other cheek' seems unattainable, His love expressed by the Cross is unfathomable.
His unfathomable love is our source and strength. We do not find in ourselves the strength to forgive and love our enemies. We find it in the Cross. The Cross is the wisdom of God. So St. Faustina said, "As often as I look upon the cross, so often will I forgive with all my heart" (Diary, 390).

My brothers and sisters, let us etch into our hearts the words the Lord spoke to Moses:
"You shall be holy, for I the Lord your God am holy. You shall not hate in your heart anyone of your kin; You shall reprove your neighbour, or you will incur guilt yourself. You shall not take vengeance or bear a grudge against any of your people, but you shall love your neighbour as yourself: I am the Lord" (Lev 19:17-18).

I want to invite you now to think of someone you need to forgive.
If you can't forgive, I don’t blame you.

At least humble yourself to admit your weakness. Say a Rosary for that person. All five decades. On your knees.
And don’t pray, “Lord, fix him up or fix her up!” But say a genuine prayer of blessing, as Jesus commands us (cf. Lk 6:28).
At this Mass, turn your heart to Jesus and ask Him to show you His unfathomable love—especially in the Eucharist—so that you may attain the unattainable."

I wonder who Father Goo is talking about in this homily.....I certainly hope... if it was me, he would send me a message and or let me know how I have offended him...or how I have "BULLIED" him. lets dialogue about it. Perhaps Father Goo has already discussed this with the person he is describing in the homily. 
Pray for Father Goo and all Priests in your daily prayers that they may have the courage to defend the teachings of Christ with clarity when asked.

They Think We Are Stupid

I won't link to the two articles from these 'writers' but you can find the links in the article I did link (try saying that 3 times fast)

These people know NOTHING about the Catholic faith, except....I guess they do recognize that most Catholics are empty headed pew sitters when it comes to the politics that run the Vatican.

Francis Reads My Blog

After receiving a brief greeting from Fr. Mario Johri, Minister General of the Capuchins and President of the USG, and Fr. David Glenday of the Comboni Missionaries, Secretary General, the Pope listened to questions from the Assembly. And if there were any criticisms? “It’s good to be criticized,” the Pope says.

No problem, I will keep at it.

Experiment of Tradition


A great interview, it is long but well worth the read.

"We are really coming to exceptional times. A time of dissociety. A sort of dissolution of society, a loss of the common good, the disappearance of the idea that there is a goal, that every society has a goal. And we have also lost the idea of authority, the need for an authority to unite men’s wills in order to reach this goal. Hence the need to submit to authority, and the need for authority to remain objective and not arbitrary. When you see how governments are behaving today, it seems like so many absolutely fundamental values are forgotten in favour of the individual or of whoever wishes to establish his own personal power or to keep his power. And we see this as much in society as in the Church. Today in the Church – and this is new – we are also witnessing a time of dissolution in the Church. The loss of unity in the Church today is absolutely staggering."

INTERESTING Knights of Malta "Drama" Not Over





A new report from Christopher Lamb in Rome

http://www.thetablet.co.uk/news/6690/0/former-grand-master-says-knights-drama-not-finished-

The Knights of Malta’s former leader has come out fighting saying the saga involving him, the Vatican and his leadership of the order is “by no means finished” 
Matthew Festing resigned as Grand Master last week after a meeting with Pope Francis, a move that signalled his capitulation in a very public battle between the knights and the Holy See. 
But speaking to The Tablet, Festing has stressed the complex dispute is far from over, raising the possibility of him trying to make a comeback as Grand Master or even a legal challenge to the validity of his resignation.

The Times They Are A Changin'

We can only hope they are....

I Took the first photo in Rome 12 years ago .....the second photo is what is all over Rome Saturday morning.







Translation:
“Ah Francis, you’ve taken over congregations, removed priests, decapitated the Order of Malta and the Franciscans of the Immaculate, ignored Cardinals… but where’s your mercy?”

Reprobate Scicluna



Archbishop Scicluna checking out my blog



In a homily on the Feast of the Conversion of St Paul in Birkirkara, Malta, Jan. 25, Archbishop Scicluna said, 


“Whoever wishes to discover what Jesus wants from him, he must ask the Pope, this Pope, not the one who came before him, or the one who came before that. This present Pope. "

Well there you have it folks....this Pope is God.

Check out the great piece from Edward Pentin
