Fides et Ratio

Our Lady of Fatima, come to the aid of your sorely oppressed children.

“Truly, the “synthesis of all heresies.” Not just one aspect of the Faith was threatened, but the very Faith itself. Not just one aspect of God’s truth disappeared, but God himself. No wonder Pius X knew he must count no cost too great in addressing this malignancy. He mandated every one of his bishops around the globe to hunt down this heresy and crush it. The saint commanded that every priest solemnly proclaim an oath against Modernism as a prerequisite for reception of Holy Orders. That oath remained in effect till 1978, when it was thought to be an embarrassing fossil from a crouched and paranoid Catholic past, a relic of a Fortress Church. Today, echoes of Modernism resound in not a few parishes and university lecture halls. Its resuscitated apologists preach an open church that will make possible the easy dissemination of the old theological errors along with their newer variations.

During the Modernist crisis, Pope Pius X was approached by some cardinal advisers to reconsider his condemnation of the Modernist heresy. Shouldn’t he adopt a more conciliatory tone? Wouldn’t the Church be better served by fruitful dialogue? The humble yet Herculean pope famously retorted: “You want them to be treated with oil, soap and caresses. But they should be beaten with fists. In a duel, you don’t count or measure the blows, you strike as you can.” Isn’t this how we expect fathers to sound when his children are at risk? Especially Holy Fathers? Wouldn’t it be nice to think that Winston Churchill was inspired by that remonstrance of Pius X when, faced with advisers who pleaded negotiation with Hitler, he bellowed, “One does not reason with a tiger when one’s head is in his mouth!”

Someone, please tell me, where is Pius X today?”

People of Faith, not Muslim Faith at first, but Catholic, Evangelical, our Orthodox Jew will face increased discrimination. Dictatorship of Relativism demands it. “As noted by Cruz, Booker’s inquiries followed similar tactics employed by then-Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), who asked Roman Catholic judicial nominee Amy Coney Barrett last year if she considered herself “an Orthodox Catholic.” Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) followed Boxer’s question by commenting, “The dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s a concern.” Senator Richard Durbin (D-Ill.) asked Barrett to define “Orthodox Catholic.”

And Catholics, or Orthodox Jews, or Evangelicals, or ….. Who was it that talked about death panels and was hooted off the stage?

“What does it say about a political party that never promotes policies for life? Why is the Democrat Party fascinated with death?

Why were the Nazis fascinated with it? Well, they weren’t — unless, of course, you were a member of some race or ethnic group or class of people the Nazis deemed ‘inferior.’

Kind of like the way Democrats view babies. And now, old folks and the infirmed.”

Of course it does. Abortion is not about health but $$$ & power. Lots of both. “In a late-term abortion, a mother is at higher risk for uterine perforation and incomplete separation of the placenta – and thus, life-threatening hemorrhaging that can occur, potentially resulting in the death of many mothers,” he said of the procedures that are now legal in the Empire State. “Late-term abortions also have high risk of permanent scarring, and the possibility of an infection of the uterus and surrounding organs, which often leads to infertility.”

Cui bono? Bigger the human being, the more $$ can be made on body parts. The longer the opportunity to kill,  more crimes can be covered up.

“The newly elected, Governor JB Pritzker, has promised to make Illinois the abortion capital of the world, and he’s making good on his word.

Illinois Democrats propose laws expanding abortion access — including repeal of parental notification for minors”

If this can happen in a formerly Catholic country, it can happen anywhere.

“Father Emmanuel Pic from Notre-Dame parish told La Bien Public news that since nothing of great monetary value was damaged, it seems the vandals wanted to attack the “heart of the Catholic faith.”

“Nothing of value has been broken, but it is the intent that is very shocking. This is what characterizes profanation,” Pic said.”

Are all equal under the law or are some more equal than others?

“The Clintons took in millions from Edelman, Kochavi and Sheikhs in the Middle East. In return the Clintons made promises and performed actions for a price. Unfortunately, the actions taken by the Clintons and the companies and individuals who donated to them were often illegal.”
