Brace yourselves, here it comes. More passive aggressive reverse psychology from the Head of the Church leveled at good and holy Catholics.
He’d be so much happier if he just quit the Church and found a religion that suited his vapid sentimentality. Got any ideas, peeps? Some Buddhist/New Age hybrid, perhaps?
You can’t give what you don’t have, and this unfortunate Pope doesn’t have one lick of true Catholic teaching in his heart. The following blather is straight from his mouth. Extra points to those who can make sense of it:
Vatican City, Aug 22, 2018 / 05:11 am (CNA/EWTN News):
“Why are the saints so able to touch the heart?” [Pope Francis] asked at the general audience Aug. 22. “Because in the saints we see what our heart deeply desires: authenticity, true relationships, radicalism.”
...Francis drew a comparison to the “doctors of the law” in the Bible, who spoke about God but did not do his will or did not have a relationship with him.
He said if Christians all strive to take God’s name upon themselves “without falsehood… the Church’s proclamation is heard more and is more credible.” If the Word of God is spoken in unity with Christ, then it will not be “praying like a parrot,” but “praying with the heart, loving the Lord.”
One of our columnists asked the following question: What exemplifies “praying like a parrot” more than the “active participation” required in the New Mass where one must parrot back line after line instead of praying?
Care to answer that, Holiness?
