It is with deep honour and respect that I acknowledge this place and ask permission of the ancestral spirits, the male spirits, the female spirits, for all of us to be here in ceremony (Church) this afternoon.”
On Sunday, the Australian hierarchy sat in thrall to an enchantress in the Mary MacKillop Memorial Chapel in Sydney after allowing themselves to be ‘cleansed’ as they walked in. Following the mumbo-jumbo, Wilcannia-Forbes Bishop Columba Macbeth-Green gave a homily that could serve as a how-to exemplar for making clinical depression contagious.
Timely and new from Keith Windschuttle at Quadrant: Sacred Traditions Invented Yesterday.
More of the same yesterday:
“Thou shalt have no other gods before Me” (Exodus 20:2).
“You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God” (Exodus 20:4–5).
Talk about bang on the money.
lol, listen to the actual words of the whacko.
“My DNA predates Australia”.
So does mine dummy.
“Professor bates is a woongaboalongala man…sorry he couldn’t make it, so I’m going to step in for him and welcome you to his land which is not my land, I’m from next door…”
I think someone should declare a law, The law of Digeridoo, any retarded mish mash of words can be made to sound profound to the Australian ear by putting the drone of a digeridoo (or someone blowing into a long cardboard pipe) behind it.
BWWwwwaaaAAAawwwaaa “I am a canabilinaba man, my DNA is ancient as time itself, welcome to Suburb, an ancient and traditional tradition of baking bread and looking at the spirits in the sky” *hit sticks together*.
“What do you think god is asking of us in Australia” he asks – as a montage of aboriginal paganism runs.
Let me hazard a guess, probably the need to do something about this Babylonian level disaster of godlessness in this country that he and people like him have personally presided over.
Is it any wonder why Western civilisation is totally fucked.
Somehow I think that if Jesus were around in Australia today he wouldn’t just be throwing only the merchants and money lenders out of the “temple.”
Lee, I think Jesus’would be kicking every so-called priest in the nuts. Or crutch.
Doesn’t matter. Just kick it hard.
Well at least I no longer feel guilty about not going to mass anymore.
Meanwhile the lumpenatheist wokists who dominate the ABC are not content with dancing on the grave of Christianity after the census, but want to get rid of the ANZAC Day ceremonies because the are allegedly modelled on Christian worship.
And on the Plenary Council, note well that the form of Catholic worship anchored in ancient tradition is under relentless assault – as are the Scriptures and the creeds.
This is not the Church but a profoundly disturbing piece of false worship, cheap and nasty as well, served up as good enough to wow the great unwashed. It’s disturbing to think that not one of the archbishops refused to participate in the paganisms, and that not a single congregant broke through with a disruptive word to resist the affront to both God and man.
The struggle continues, then.
This looks awfully like a claim there’s only two spiritual genders … trouble brewing!
The new Bishops’ Conference President is Perth Archbishop Timothy Costelloe, by the way, not Columba Macbeth-Green. (!). I edited original draft and married a surviving reference to the discarded one. Now corrected.
But did they have statues like Frankenfurter did that someone stole and slung in the Tiber?
Not pagan enough then.
Try harder next time… at least rip the beating heart out of a virgin or 2.
He “asks permission” of the “spirits” to be there? How would he know if they refused to grant it?
The Plenary Council’s Facebook pages muzzled and deleted the opinions of many true Catholics. So much for their hypocrisy of being inclusive and welcoming.
There is a campaign in the Letters section of The Catholic Weekly to intimidate and muzzle the opinions of Dr. Philippa Martyr.
But it doesn’t surprise me. I’ve been following Philippa’s columns on the Council and she has really been speaking truth to the powers that be – meaning Church luvvies. Monica Doumit has also been excellent.
Gosh I’m getting sick of this monster of a pope. My facebook comment today, written with a still, small voice of calm:
Pope Francis has said before that he believes abortion is contract killing. He excommunicated the Mafia – contract killers par excellence – a few years ago. But he’s insisting that supporters of the most prevalent form of contract killing should be permitted to go to Holy Communion.
What an absolute disgrace. What a spineless, grovelling, needless to say illogical hypocrite. Charity forbids me to say what I really think.
Which bishops, apart from Vigano, etc, are going to stick their necks over the parapet and call him out? Don’t hold your breath. But please write to your local ordinary, ask him to grow a pair and offer him a form of words he can sign off on and send to this worst of all popes.
And pray and fast for the Pope and your bishop.
Here is a sample form of words for your ordinary, which can be sharpened at will:
Just what in the blazes do you think you’re doing, allowing supporters and enablers of mass contract killing to receive Holy Communion?
Abortion is murder. A Catholic publicly supporting it is objectively in a state of mortal sin. Do you know what mortal sin is, or did you skip those classes in moral theology?
Your execrable excuse is you don’t want to “politicize” the Eucharist. B as in B and S as in S. YOU ARE POLITICIZING THE EUCHARIST by allowing supporters of murder to receive. Oh, and by the way, you’re sending them to hell. But do you even believe in hell, or was Mr Scalfari right when he said you told him you believed in the heresy of annihilationism – something you haven’t had the time to deny or affirm since 2013, because of more urgent matters such as suppressing the ancient Latin Mass, and arranging Pachamama vases on the altar of St Peter?
In the tradition of St Paul: I withstand you to your face. Unless you recant, I’ll issue a decree denying YOU Holy Communion within my diocese.
+ Bishop/Archbishop X (insert name of diocese).
P.S. What did you say to Nancy Pelosi the other day about abortion being contract killing? Or did you omit that bit, and just smile and go on drinking tea?
Nothing says Francis’ pontificate than a little pagan ceremony before, during and after Mass.
Any wonder many young people and young families are fleeing to the traditional Mass.
China is not the only place for “underground” Catholic Church.
Hugh, it pains me to say this but I’m starting to think that Francis’s outwardly hard line orthodoxy on abortion is nothing more than a tactical expedient.
You’re right to suspect this man’s beliefs, C.L.
We must remember he’s a close personal friend of Emma Bonino, the “bicycle lady” who boasted of supervising 10,000 illegal abortions by use of a device she invented operated by a bicycle pump, and has been one of Italy’s leading campaigners for abortion and euthanasia. He referred to Bonino as one of Italy’s “forgotten greats”.
In a typically fatuous defence of her, the Pope said “We have to look at people, at what they do.”
CL: It’s all very well to promote your own version of Catholicism, but surely hypocritical to casually assault other people’s beliefs?
“CL: It’s all very well to promote your own version of Catholicism, but surely hypocritical to casually assault other people’s beliefs?”
You clearly have no understanding of Catholicism.
It’s what Christ taught, or the highway.
I’m not sure how one ‘assaults’ a belief.
Heathen rituals and rubrics have no place in a Catholic Church. Saying so places me in a straight line of orthodoxy going back to the Apostles.
Falsies draws another false equivalence.
CL: Heathen rituals are a central part of Catholicism. One need only examine the collection of pagan in the Vatican, the accumulation of pagan dieties among the saints and the many manifestations of Catholic mergers and acquisitions that absorbed pagan preferences to doubt the notion a direct and orthodox line.
Why are there Sybils among the apostles in the Sistine Chapel? Why indeed so many pagan symbols all about the Vatican? Or need among the practices of Catholics ritual so many pagan rituals adopted? You can Google all sorts of stuff.
