The Eponymous Flower: Archbishop Wilton Gregory Promotes "Gay Pride" March

Fluffly-wuffly (c)atholicism; false Mercy and and even falser Compassion; (REDACTED). Hear No Evil - See No Evil - Speak No Evil - it seems to be the modern mantra being firmly espoused by the Catholic Church.

God Help Us...Our Lady of Sorrows, Pray For Us and For the Enlightenment of Our Bishops and Pope! 

From The Eponymous Flower:

Archbishop Wilton Gregory Promotes "Gay Pride" March in Atlanta

Edit: We just received this on the 17th of this month about the usual abuse of Catholic heritage and resulting sacrilege for the usual disordered proclivity in the name of mercy. What's particularly tragic about this is the provenance of this parish as a Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.

Archbishop Wilton Daniel Gregory, former President of the UCCB and current Archbishop of Atlanta, has authorized the use of The Shrine of the Immaculate Conception and support for participating in the secular Gay Pride Parade. The event took place on October 14th and the Shrine is listed as a sponsor endorsing the event.

The laity in Atlanta has done nothing, and a cursory search of the internet shows no concern about this event, either.

And the Gates of Hell shall not Prevail against it...

I won't attempt to analyze the happenings of the Synod since the High Noon occurrence of October 13th. Suffice to say it did not end with Cardinal Baldisserri and his gang riding off into the sunset, their kidnapped Bride (The Church) in the wagon with them. "Will Kane" once again emerged the victor, only this time the He did not throw his badge into the dirt after saving the Bride and then ride away. This time He just shook his head in disgust and disbelief, awestruck at the sheer audacity shown by the bad guys, that they really thought they could kidnap His Bride and get away with it. Or of the townsfolk, who thought Him accepting of their desires. "Nope", he opines to to no one in particular, "You had plenty of warning of what I would do...what I always have done. Don't ever again mistake my seemingly benign persona as a weakness to be exploited." 

If Cardinal Baldisserri can be thought of as "Frank Miller", then it remains that Will Kane is, quite evidently, The Holy Ghost - He "Who governest the Church".  The Holy Ghost, the "Author of all good", re-wrote the Relatio. It was The Holy Ghost, the "Consuming fire", that quenched the immoral desires of a few. Finally, it was The Holy Ghost, the "Spirit of the fear of the Lord" who reminded His Princes to "inspire in us the practice of good", to "make us persevere in justice" and to "lead us in the way of salvation". In short, The Holy Ghost, through His agents (Cardinals Burke, Napier and Pell at the forefront) orchestrated the coupe. Or was it a coup de grace

In either case, October 13th was the watershed moment that blew the facade off of the true intent of the Synod from its beginning, which was to-change-without-changing the Sacrament of Matrimony and redefine the nuclear family to accommodate those who wish to persevere in grave sin, all in the name of "mercy" and "compassion". To welcome them back into full communion, without requiring of them what all the rest of us have to do when we are in grave sin, is not "mercy" - it is a death warrant to the Soul. To welcome them back into full communion through "compassion" for the extenuating circumstance of having children born of a second marriage, is to show disdain and a severe lack of "compassion" to the children born of the first, who truly desire - if asked - nothing more than the return of the abandoning Parent unceremoniously ripped from their midst. Where, I've asked before, is the Mercy and Compassion shown to them? Since when have the needs of the many suddenly been outweighed by the wants of the few? There is mercy, compassion and justice for the Middle East, but is none left for the innocent Spouses and their children?? 

What was and is lacking in the constant "mercy and compassion" meme is the third member of this triumvirate - Justice.  If Mercy and Compassion are the two legs of the triangle, their base is Justice. Absent justice, and you have nothing to keep the other two secure. Thomas Aquinas recognized the relationship between mercy and justice, writing: “Mercy without justice is the mother of dissolution; [and] justice without mercy is cruelty.”  Our Lord showed mercy and compassion to the woman at the well, but also justice when he said "... Thou hast said well, I have no husband: For thou hast had five husbands: and he whom thou now hast, is not thy husband." Likewise with St. Mary Magdalene, he showed the same mercy and compassion when he said "...Woman, where are they that accused thee? Hath no man condemned thee? Who said: No man, Lord. And Jesus said: Neither will I condemn thee." His justice, however, came in the very next sentence:"...Go, and now sin no more." 

 And yet, certain Synod participants would have had us believe that this means not to "go and sin no more" but "if you can only not sin on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, as those are Traditional Ember days, this means you show a penitential spirit and therefore you can receive the Body and Blood of Christ, as determined by me, Your Bishop, but remember...you must continue to gradually return yourself to full communion by not sinning any more, sort of like a 12-step nicotine patch... you know what those are, right?"  

It's never going to work unless Justice remains intact. You can't expect others in the throes of other types of mortal sin to not ask for the same leniency, can you? It's not very Realistic, Merciful or Compassionate if you don't, is it? If gradualness can be applied to divorced and remarried, can it not also be applied to others as well? With whom would it end? It's a mess in the making. They have a year to figure it all out and a critical choice to make: grab the Bride and make a new putsch or face the wrath of "Will Kane" once again. 

The ending has already been written: "...And the Gates of Hell shall not Prevail against it." 

What I find hard to believe is why certain people don't believe it.

And the world knew Peace...

Cardinal Kasper needs to be re-assigned to a cloistered monastery, run by a Rosalind-Russell type Mother Superior, that is located in Africa, as far in the interior as is possible and still have outside communication with the world, but only via the fastest runner in the Convent school, who runs to the nearest town 150 miles away, where he passes off a letter to the local postman, who hops in his tuk-tuk and traverses the rut-infested roads to a dirt-strip airport 10 miles away, where it's handed off to a bush pilot who then crash lands on a deserted island that's never been charted, there to languish in perpetuity - along with Cardinal Kasper's latest meaningless pronouncements to the Pope.

Thereby causing a new springtime in the Catholic Church, full of Orthodoxy and 2,000 year-old Tradition.

And the world knew Peace.

(Oh...and the pilot gets rescued, but the letter doesn't...)

"Click Here To Email..."

I am convinced it's a scam, pure and simple. Those little "Click here to email so-and-so" are just dummy buttons that lead to internet-nowhere. Oh..they may let you send an email alright, but its just a placebo to make you feel good about yourself. Do you really believe you'll get an answer?

                   HAH! HAH! HAH! HAH!.....
                        Heh! heh!heh!...

Confírma hoc, Deus, quod operátus es in nobis...

"We beg you, Lord, to look on these your servants, and graciously to uphold the institution of marriage established by you for the continuation of the human race, so that they who have been joined together by your authority may remain faithful together by your help. Through Christ our Lord. Amen." (Rite of Marriage During Mass - Ordo Celebrandi Matrimonii Sacramentum, April 2, 1964 (1962 Missal)

                                       AND YES...
                  I WOULD DO IT ALL OVER...

Who's On First? (in Rome)

It seems the Princes and Shepherds are having a PR nightmare. Especially with these headlines:

Cardinal on his own Report's paragraphs on homosexuality: "Ask him! I didn't write this, the author must know what he meant!"
3 - Müller on Censorship: "I say what I must say"

And these are just from Rorate Caeli...

What is going on in Rome is not meant to be funny and hilarious. But sadly, that is exactly what the above headlines indicate. 

It reminds me of this:

These are the successors to the Apostles and Princes of the Church! If THEY don't know who's on First, then God help us...
