Synod key words: "Graduality"

It has come to my attention that many of the Cardinals and others attending the synod have been floating around a certain term, never heard before, to provide cover and support for +Kasper.

This word is "Graduality", and its definition is related to how the Church looks on protestants and other religions as having certain truths in them that the church can affirm. So too these promoters of Kasper want the Church to recognize that the irregular unions that are entered into can bring about good fruits.

My first thought is simple:

When a religious scheme is shattered (as Christianity was shattered at the Reformation), it is not merely the vices that are let loose. The vices are, indeed, let loose, and they wander and do damage. But the virtues are let loose also; and the virtues wander more wildly, and the virtues do more terrible damage. The modern world is full of the old Christian virtues gone mad. The virtues have gone mad because they have been isolated from each other and are wandering alone. Thus some scientists care for truth; and their truth is pitiless. Thus some humanitarians only care for pity; and their pity (I am sorry to say) is often untruthful - GK Chesterton, "Orthodoxy"

There might be good intentions and the couple might eventually be led back by natural events that occur within the marraige, that is one thing.  But lets not confuse having the Church affirm the disorder of entering into that is not a marraige by saying people can take communion because they have a possibility of coming back later.  Thats either Jesus or its not, and if it is that action is sacrelidge, plain and simple.

So Bishops and Pontiff, be BOLD, call people to take up their cross, for it is their salvation



  1. I an not sure why anyone would want moral guidance from a bunch of people who had child rapists in their midst for decades and did nothing about it. No whistleblowers, nobody saw anything. Just move the perps around to rape again.

    It would make more sense to go on a AA course run by George Best and Paul Gascoigne

    1. ok, first you dont keep the focus on the issue at hand. Then you attack Holy Mother Church for the evils perpetrated by sinful men as if it was a Church teaching to engage in homosexuality or to look the other way to begin with. The fault for such things lies at the feet of the Bishops involved not with the Church herself. When news of such things finally reached Rome the head of the CDF Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger and Pope John Paul II took immediate action defrocking priests and removing bishops from their sees.
      You want to attack the Church for teh individual policy of moving people around but that is what the world told her to do, the best psychiatrists said if if removed the person and moved them away from the situation and gave them therapy it would be fine and those Bishops that trusted those with secular authority gave in. Not calling disorder a disorder is the real issue, and you can attack the Church now but where is the outrage over the protestants who have grater abuse cases that dont even get mentioned, or where is the outrage over the public schools or within families where this is atrocious. Sorry kid tell me where the Church teaches evil is ok, you will find the opposite.
