Can you believe that headline? This is what the news report is coming out of Rome from our Archbishop of Vancouver, Archbishop Miller. As first reported by Fr. Nick Meisl who is in Rome studying.

I'm speechless.....literally.

Read this sounds like the Bishops actually asked questions and Francis just blabbered away saying..."let someone else answer that... let me talk about myself and my life in South America"

The Archbishop apparently said this bizarro statement:

For Archbishop Miller, the most important challenge is that of “moving toward a focus on fundamental evangelization.  Not of teaching.  We need fundamental evangelization before catechesis. We have always gone straight to teaching, but one cannot face the challenges of a secular culture, or rather a post-Christian culture, if people are not at least evangelized.”  
Here are the things Pope Francis discussed with the Canadian Bishops

Interview with Andrea Gagliarducci, ACI Stampa.  Italian original here.

Growing secularism.  A lack of vocations.  Evangelization of indigenous people.  The legalization of euthanasia, which is a critical topic.  These are some of the subjects which Pope Francis discussed with the Western Canadian Bishops on their ad limina visit. The Pope offered them, among other things, a personal reflection on the crucifixion of Peter.  So explains Archbishop J. Michael Miller, a Basilian formerly in the Secretary of State and the Congregation for Catholic Education, who now guides the Archdiocese of Vancouver, to the ACI Stampa.  

Archbishop Miller explained that, “Pope Francis welcomed us at the door, one by one.  The chairs were arranged in an oval, and while we were taking our places, he continued greeting us.  Then, he sat on a chair in the center.  After the situation of our region was explained to him, the Pope began to speak.  The encounter lasted two and a half hours.”

All the Bishops spoke in English, and the Pope in Italian, with the help of an interpreter.  “The problems that we described” says Miller “are a small part of all those we live with in Canada and in Western countries.  The decline of vocations, in particular of religious vocations.  Also the situation of the indigenous people, who live in the territories of the North West, who are often very poor.”

“Certainly, the situation in Western Canada is different from that which is seen in Quebec, where the growing secularization has assumed aggressive contours from the quiet revolution.  There” explains Archbishop Miller, “the Church had a position of power, that has since been eroded and attacked.  In our area, the Church never had such power.  The majority were Anglican, protestants.  In the last census, however, 40% declared that they do not belong to any religious confession.  Catholics were 16%, making them the largest Christian denomination.”

“The faith of Canada, therefore, is one preserved by immigrants, in particular those from Korea and China.  But, in the end,” says the Archbishop of Vancouver, “all Canadians are immigrants and so we cannot talk of immigrants but new Canadians.”

What did the Pope speak about in two and a half hours?  “He spoke of many things.  He spoke about Peter, about the fact that he was crucified head first so that God could wash his feet.
Also,” continues Archbishop Miller, “at different times he returned to his experiences in Buenos Aires, in particular, he highlighted the difference of cultures.  He spoke of the Virgin of Guadalupe, of religious practices and of popular piety.  In some cases he offered his reflections, in other cases his personal experiences.  He emphasized repeatedly that the Bishops must be close to the people.  He spoke often of affinity.  He also discussed synodality, a word which he prefers to collegiality.  He asked us to have courage, to take risks.  With respect to the indigenous people, he spoke of the situation in Latin American, and of his reflections on the Jesuit missions.  He asked the priests to pray and to preach.”

All had the opportunity to speak.

Rather than focus on questions specifically, responding or trying to give an answer immediately to the problems that were brought forward to him, Pope Francis wanted to keep the discussion on a pastoral level, leaving the task of dealing with specifics to the specialized bodies of the Holy See.

An example of this is the issue of euthanasia, which will certainly be treated in a deeper way with the Secretariat of State.  The Archdiocese of Vancouver is very concerned with this issue, and - with the Archdiocese of Toronto - decided to join the “Healthcare Coalition”, which is the coalition that is striving to ensure the right of conscientious objection.  This is because the new law threatens to undermine this fundamental right.

Here is some background.  In 2015 the Supreme Court struck down the federal crime against euthanasia, and in 2016 the federal Parliament created legislation to produce the changes that were made necessary by the Supreme Court judgement.  Now, the provinces are called upon to implement the reform of the medical system, given that in Canada the Criminal Code is under the jurisdiction of the federal government, while healthcare is under the jurisdiction of the provinces and territories.

What then must the Church do?  Archbishop Miller explains that “it is necessary to have a united , clear front, against euthanasia.  We know that the battle against the legalization of euthanasia has been lost, and now we can work together to ensure that there is protection for the conscience rights of health care workers, Catholic institutions and other faith-based institutions.  For example, a Catholic institution should not be forced to provide abortion, which in Canada is permitted almost without restriction.  We need to ensure that Catholic institutions are not obliged to provide those things which come to be called ‘health services’”.

The Archbishop explained further that in the province in which Vancouver finds itself, British Columbia, the administration has guaranteed that it will not obligate Catholic institutions “to take part in euthanasia”, but “it is still not clear what the position of the opposition will be on this point,” even though it is clear that they want more control.  In the end, however, Archbishop Miler is optimistic, believing that at least the battle for the right of conscientious objection will be won, because “there are also people on the left who defend freedom of conscience.  They do this for other reasons, but they defend it.”

For Archbishop Miller, the most important challenge is that of “moving toward a focus on fundamental evangelization.  Not of teaching.  We need fundamental evangelization before catechesis. We have always gone straight to teaching, but one cannot face the challenges of a secular culture, or rather a post-Christian culture, if people are not at least evangelized.”

Formal Correction In Camera Caritatis

Thoughts on Formal Correction In Camera Caritas  (In The Room of Charity)

Cardinal Brandmuller suggested it could first happen in private.
The Dubia Cardinals Brandmuller, Burke, Caffarra and Meisner have presented themselves in person, either as a group or in pairs to Pope Bergoglio.This would have happened sometime after Epiphany.

Could it be possible that it has happened? I think so, after watching 4 years of this Gong Show here are my thoughts.

The Cardinals were charitable and direct.... Francis answered them to their face with Heresy. I believe he dared them to make a public correction, and I believe he even has stored up files of dirt on the four Cardinals dating back to when they were in diapers. If there is true dirt let it come out, regardless if there isn’t a lot of dirt..... Francis and his band of Merry Men (Waffen SS) will invent dirt….Bergoglio slings dirt everyday from Santa Marta….what’s one more bag of manure? 

I believe the Cardinals thought  they would eventually get an official response to the Public Dubia before Ash Wednesday with the correct answers (Catholic) and that would be the end of it…..oh sure  Bergoglio will keep “wink wink” “nudge nudge”   

 "but….what can we do….we did our job as Cardinals…the Dubia is answered…see nothing has changed”

They were not expecting the Sultan of Insults to Dare them and Profess Heresy to their face. That is what he has done…..and now the Cardinals don’t know what to do.

It would be a daunting task……..but thats why they wear red.

Could it be that the “Formal Public Correction” will also include a direct accusation of Hersey?   I am not sure it works that way….

Tarantino, make this movie happen.

BREAKING: Archdiocese of Vancouver Stands with Christ

Father Pablo Santa Maria of the Archdiocese of Vancouver has posted the following.

Communion, Marriage and Divorce

Who can receive Holy Communion at Mass? None of us are truly worthy of such a great gift but God’s grace makes us worthy and prepares us to receive this sublime gift through which we are united to Christ and find salvation. We are reminded of this reality at Mass when we prepare for Holy Communion and say “Lord I am not worthy that You should enter under my roof, but only say the word and I shall be healed.”
When it comes to the issue of those who are divorced and remarried, some confusion arises. The following paragraphs are an attempt to give some clarity to this delicate matter and to encourage all of us to accompany those who are on the peripheries of the Church.
The Church has always upheld the dignity and vocation of Marriage as a central component of her life: “The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament”. (1)
However, there are instances when a couple has to divorce. Reasons may vary but usually it is for the physical and mental wellbeing, of one of the parties. When there are situations of abuse, violence, neglect, etc. separation and even divorce are a necessary step. Those people who are divorced but are not living with another person either in marriage or in cohabitation, can and should receive Holy Communion if they are not is the state of mortal sin.
“I say to you, whoever divorces his wife – unless the
marriage is unlawful – and marries another commits adultery.”
 – Mt. 19, 31 – 32
In this passage, our Lord is debating with the Pharisees on the nature of Marriage. Here Christ reiterates what he mentioned in the fifth chapter of Saint Matthew’s gospel, that divorce and remarriage are a serious sin. When we know we have committed a serious sin, we should not receive Holy Communion.
St. John Paul II in the Apostolic Letter Familiaris Consortio further reminds the faithful of this truth. Those who are divorced and remarried cannot receive Holy Communion. This is because the previous union still exists. Even though civilly it’s no longer there, in the eyes of Church it still exists.
However, those who are divorced and civilly remarried are not outside the Church. The divorced and remarried should be welcomed as an essential: part of the Catholic community. These members of the Church should share in the life of the Church.They can attend Mass, pray, and take part in the activities of the parish. The children born in these situations are central to the life and mission of the Catholic Church and should be brought up in the Faith.In the recent Papal document Amoris Laetitia, Pope Francis reiterates the teaching of Christ and of Pope John Paul II: “In no way must the Church desist from proposing the full ideal of marriage, God’s plan in all its grandeur.” (2)
However, what the Holy Father is also encouraging us to do is to have an examination of conscience and to see how we can help those who are on the peripheries, in this case, those who are divorced and civilly remarried. In some cases they feel ostracized and excluded from the life of the Church. The Holy Father is encouraging all of us, but especially priests to “accompany {the divorced and remarried} in helping them to understand their situation according to the teaching of the Church” (3)
In some cases the first marriage bond may have never existed. To this end a canonical investigation of the first marriage by a Church marriage tribunal may be appropriate, which may help to regularize the second civil union. In other cases, when the first marriage was indeed valid, the Church invites the couple in the second civil union to abstain from marital intimacy so that they may receive the sacraments.
In recent days, since the Synod on the Family and the publication of the Papal Exhortation Amoris Laetitia, there has been some added confusion to this matter. There are some who say that the Pope has somehow changed this teaching of Christ, which is not the case. The teachings of Christ cannot be changed or re-interpreted according to the fashions of the time. In a recent interview, Cardinal Muller, the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith says that “For us marriage is the expression of participation in the unity between Christ, the bridegroom, and the Church, his bride. This is not, as some said during the Synod, a simple vague analogy. No! This is the substance of the sacrament, and no power in heaven or on earth, neither an angel, nor the pope, nor a council, nor a law of the bishops, has the faculty to change it.” (4)
In other words, neither the Pope nor a bishop can change the teachings of Christ. The Church has always maintained this practice and teaching reminding us of the sanctity of Marriage and the importance of the Holy Eucharist. St. Paul in the First Letter to the Corinthians reminds us all look into our hearts and to see if we are indeed ready to receive Holy Communion as it’s a grave sin to receive Holy Communion when we are in the state of mortal sin. (5)
The ultimate goal of the Church is to accompany those who are hurting and feel excluded and to bring them back into the fold. To encourage them and to lead them to a worthy reception of the sacraments by which they will come to share in the life of our Saviour.
