Bergoglian Apocalypse Update:
“Secret” Commission To “Reinterpret” Humanae Vitae
Based on Amoris Laetitia
by Christopher A. Ferrara
June 16, 2017
The redoubtable Roberto De Mattei, a courageous opponent of the destructive advance of Bergoglianism, has confirmed the existence of a secret commission tasked by Pope Bergoglio to find a way around the constant teaching of the Church on the intrinsic evil of contraception, affirmed by Paul VI in Humanae Vitae.
Prof. De Mattei reveals that Monsignor Gilfredo Marengo is “the coordinator of the commission nominated by Pope Francis to ‘re-interpret’ the encyclical Humanæ Vitæ by Paul VI, in the light of Amoris laetitia, on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the former’s promulgation, which falls next year.” The story, first broken by Marco Tosatti, is now confirmed beyond question by De Mattei.
The other members of this clearly subversive commission are Monsignor Pierangelo Sequeri, Professor Philippe Chenaux and Monsignor Angel Maffeis. The commission has, quite ominously, been given “the task of procuring from the Vatican Archives, the documentation related to the preparatory work on Humanæ Vitæ, which took place over a period of three years, during and after the Second Vatican Council.” That “preparatory work” resulted in the recommendation that the Church relax her teaching to permit contraception — a recommendation that Paul VI, no doubt under the influence of the Holy Ghost, ultimately rejected despite his personal liberal inclinations, as any compromise of that teaching would destroy the credibility of the infallible, universal ordinary Magisterium (i.e., what the Church has constantly taught even without a formal, infallible dogmatic definition).
As De Mattei notes, however, it was only “after two years of wavering” that Pope Paul “published the encyclical Humanæ Vitæ… wherein he affirmed the traditional position of the Church, which has always forbidden the artificial limitation of births. It was, as the philosopher Romano Amerio said, the most important act of his pontificate.”
As Paul VI declared in that encyclical, not only abortion and sterilization are “absolutely excluded” as permissible conduct, but also “any action which either before, at the moment of, or after sexual intercourse, is specifically intended to prevent procreation — whether as an end or as a means…. [I]t is a serious error to think that a whole married life of otherwise normal relations can justify sexual intercourse which is deliberately contraceptive and so intrinsically wrong.”
That decision has never been accepted by the Modernist termites, including numerous liberal bishops, who have been gnawing away at the moral edifice of the Church over the past fifty years and now are exulting over the Bergoglian apocalypse that commenced with Amoris Laetitia (AL).
Indeed, the planned modus operandi for the “pastoral” abandonment of the Church’s infallible teaching on the intrinsic evil of contraception would appear to be the same as that which AL proposes for the “pastoral” abandonment of the Church’s teaching on the intrinsic immorality of adultery and thus the “intrinsically impossible” admission of public adulterers in “second marriages” to Holy Communion. Leaving little doubt of the matter, Msgr. Marengo, the very coordinator of the not-so-secret commission, has already told Vatican Insider (as De Mattei notes) that it is time to consider “abandoning a conception of the doctrinal patrimony of the Church as a closed system, impermeable to questions and provocations of the here and now, in which the Christian community is called to justify its faith, through its proclamation and testimony.” Marengo proposes the classic Modernist opposition between Catholic teaching and “the here and now,” as if the mere passage of time could alter immutable doctrines and dogmas rooted in divine revelation.
Only this year, in the same journal, Marengo all but declares that AL’s false disjunction between, on the one hand, “abstract ideas” — meaning the divine precepts of the moral law — and, on the other hand, “pastoral action” in the face of “reality” is the way this commission plans to subvert the Church’s infallible teaching against contraception. The infallible teaching will be affirmed in principle but negated in practice, just as AL does with the indissolubility of marriage and the intrinsic immorality of adultery. Quoth Marengo (as recounted by De Mattei):
“The polemical game – the pill yes – the pill no, like today’s – Communion to the divorced yes – Communion to the divorced no – is only an appearance of discomfort and strain, [which is] much more decisive in the fabric of ecclesial life.”
“Every time the Christian community falls into error and proposes models of life derived from too abstract and artificially constructed theological ideals, it conceives its pastoral action as the schematic application of a doctrinal paradigm.”
“A certain way of defending and acknowledging the teaching of Paul VI was, probably one of the factors for which [alluding to AL] we have presented a too abstract theological ideal on marriage, almost artificially constructed, far from the concrete situation and the effective possibilities of families as they really are. This excessive idealization, above all when we have reawakened trust in grace, has not made marriage more attractive and desirable, but quite the opposite.”
This is no time for politely diplomatic locutions: in a mystery of apocalyptic dimensions, this Pope is on a mission to destroy. He is precisely the hypothetical Roman Pontiff envisioned by Saint Robert Bellarmine: the Pope who must be resisted if he is “invading souls… and much more if he should endeavor to destroy the Church.” [On the Roman Pontiff (De Controversiis), trans. Ryan Grant (Mediatrix Press: 2015), Book II, Chapter 29, p. 303.]
I join Prof. De Mattei in posing this question: “Will there be any priest or theologian faced with this program of the ‘reinterpretation’ of Humanæ Vitæ, [who will] have the courage to utter the word ‘heresy’?” As incredible as it may seem, the Church is under attack by the Pope himself. We can only resist the errors of Bergoglianism according to our station, defending the Church as best we can until Heaven’s intervention finally makes an end of this madness.
My Comment : I copy below 2 comments from this interesting website about the same topic as I have myself no word anymore, these 2 Comments in a good English match completly what I think about this Apocalyptical situation within the Church, if the owners of these comments do not agree then just contact me and I will delete, thank you.
1st Comment :
“Our prelates will blow it, period. They will mess up because they are just about all cowards. Even the few that seem to be not entirely cowardly are not exactly doing much of anything. It’s like they are all inwardly waiting for “the moment” to do “the big thing”. What are they waiting for? They are waiting for something. We hear a faintly, vaguely encouraging word here and there. It’s like a crumb from the table, and sustains faith in the least possible way. What are they waiting for? Get on with it. Man up. If you are going to talk heresy, now is the moment. Speak plainly and just get ON WITH IT. Lose your life! Lose your position! Charge the line NOW. Man up! Is there some prize waiting for those who say nothing about this utter catastrophe?
If it’s cardinal against cardinal, bishop against bishop, then let’s get on with it. Name names. Throw the first punch and denounce the heretics. Just do it. Does waiting for more damage make the inevitable less damaging? Are any of you reading this? You know who you are!
I mean, if your plan is to just go along and die a slow death, at least JUST TELL US. Just say “so and so is a heretic and there is nothing we can do. Those of us that believe, we will just die together”. Be a father to us and speak plainly. Tell us your plan, plain and simple.
That said, I’m confident that evil men in the Vatican will snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. But not before the Church is nearly entirely destroyed. It feels like we are well into overtime. The end is in sight. It doesn’t look like anyone does anything. It looks like we just lose badly, because this is likely the end of an age.
But since we don’t know if this is really the end of an epoch (regardless of all positive indicators!) I still hold hope that all of this could change in an instant. Whatever that looks like, Fatima, conclave, whatever, I’m eternally hopeful for that sudden moment when all the tears drain into the abyss and we stagger about like men suddenly awoke from a nightmare, to find the sun shining and birds singing.
I’ll publish this but I may delete it later”
2nd Comment :
“yes, we are the ones that have to take up the task to correct the Pope, not the dubia brothers, not the polish bishops, not the african bishops, not any cardinal or bishop or even priests. The only bishop that has spoken clearly is auxiliary bishop Athanasious Snider (God bless this bishop who not coincidentaly is named Athanasious). He is a voice preaching in the desert.
Consequently, it is to us, the faithful, to whom it corresponds to make manifest to this Pope that we are opposed to the heretic views expressed in his documents and to his entire papacy project and we can ennumerate the policies that he has
implemented in various important matters such as sodomy, abortion, and relationship with heretics and other relations.
So I propose to write a document expressing our opposition to his papacy and all his heresies, and we will call them that “heresies”.
Some of the most gifted witers in the traditional movement can redact this document, to be signed by all the catholics of good will, from the traditional movement as well as other various movements that want to associate to this project on which we will manifest our opposition to this papacy, and reject to obey his heretical views.
There has been a movement from well recognized catholics to beg the “Holy” Father to answer the famous “dubia”. without a response; so the time is ripe for this new step on the part of the faithful, and any priest or bishop that wants to associate to it”
