Skip to comments.[Catholic Caucus] Marian devotion of Bergoglio inspired by Wojtyla
Posted on 12/14/2017 1:25:03 PM PST by ebb tide
On the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, Francis, in a shameless attempt to fool the ignorant into believing that he and his agenda are Catholic, stood before a statue of Our Lady to deliver what amounted to a glorified political speech disguised as a prayer.
Pretending to seek Our Ladys intercession, he used the occasion to publicize a laundry list of his pet causes (e.g., poverty, immigration, environmentalism) and to convict those who arent convinced of his pious intentions as fearful, hypocritical, and antisocial.
The full text of Jorges prayer is linked above. Go ahead, read it. Allow yourself to become outraged at the mockery of Our Lords mother as her Feast Day is leveraged as a public relations tool by a heretic dressed in papal garb in furtherance of his earthbound agenda.
And then, offer prayers and sacrifices in consolation of Our Ladys Immaculate Heart.
One of my first thoughts in reading the disgusting text was, No surprise, after all, this is the same guy who claimed that Our Lady wished to accuse God of lying.
This thought led me to reread those comments.
Speaking of Our Lady at the foot of the Cross, Francis stated in December 2013:
The Gospel does not tell us anything: if she spoke a word or not She was silent, but in her heart, how many things told the Lord! You, that day, this and the other that we read, you had told me that he would be great, you had told me that you would have given him the throne of David, his forefather, that he would have reigned forever and now I see him there! Our Lady was human! And perhaps she even had the desire to say: Lies! I was deceived! John Paul II would say this, speaking about Our Lady in that moment. But she, with her silence, hid the mystery that she did not understand and with this silence allowed for this mystery to grow and blossom in hope.
Upon publication of these blasphemous words, a number of commentators objected to Francis suggestion that John Paul II would say this.
As for why Francis would make such a claim, apparently he had in mind the Encyclical Redemptoris Mater, wherein John Paul II said:
At that moment [the Annunciation] she had also heard the words: He will be great and the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; and of his kingdom there will be no end (Lk. 1:32-33). And now, standing at the foot of the Cross, Mary is the witness, humanly speaking, of the complete negation of these words. (RM 18)
Do you see how Bergoglio twisted and manipulated the words of John Paul II?
I suspect that many, if not most of you, said yes.
As for me, what I see is Francis, a dyed-in-the-wool Vatican II modernist, building upon the example of yet another dyed-in-the-wool Vatican II modernist.
Lets take a closer look at what the Polish pope said in Redemptoris Mater, and Ill conclude by giving you another opportunity to tell me what you see.
Question: Is it true that the words of the Archangel Gabriel, spoken at the Annunciation, telling Mary that her Son would be a King whose reign is everlasting, were completely negated on the Cross, humanly speaking?
I can imagine the neo-con answering:
Yes, but only humanly speaking since Our Lord, in His sacred humanity, truly died! Our King, however, is true God!
This is an entirely conciliar way of looking at the Kingship of Christ; i.e., it is wrong.
As Pope Pius XI wrote in his magnificent Encyclical Quas Primas:
But if we ponder this matter more deeply, we cannot but see that the title and the power of King belongs to Christ as man in the strict and proper sense too. For it is only as man that he may be said to have received from the Father power and glory and a kingdom, since the Word of God, as consubstantial with the Father, has all things in common with him, and therefore has necessarily supreme and absolute dominion over all things created. (Quas Primas 7)
The power of King belongs to Christ as man in the strict and proper sense; i.e., humanly speaking.
When the Archangel tells the Virgin Mary that the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, therefore, he is speaking precisely of her Son in His sacred humanity; i.e., human speaking.
As such, Our Lords death on the Cross, by which He merited the Kingship that was given to Him, does not represent the complete negation of Gabriels words; most especially humanly speaking since this is the only way (the only Catholic way, that is) that they can be understood!
To this, no doubt, the neo-con defender of all things Wojtyla will object:
John Paul II merely meant to say that viewing the Cross in purely human terms makes it appear as though the words of the angel were completely negated!
Nice try, but John Paul II wasnt speaking about human beings in any general sense, much less only those who are spiritually blind; rather, he was speaking very specifically about Our Lady and what she witnessed while standing at the foot of the Cross:
Mary is the witness, humanly speaking, of the complete negation of these words. JPII
Let us not forget (as Francis reminded us) that Mary is entirely human!
In other words, John Paul II the Totus Tuus pope who allegedly embodied Marian devotion like no other pope before him is telling us what the Cross looked like through the eyes of the Blessed Virgin Mary; namely, the complete negation of the words spoken at the Annunciation.
At this, let revisit the words of Francis:
Our Lady was human! And perhaps she even had the desire to say: Lies! I was deceived! John Paul II would say this, speaking about Our Lady in that moment.
Now do you see how Bergoglio twisted and manipulated the words of John Paul II?
I didnt think so.
