The mission of the Church is to save people, not to include them.

I am a man of few words, so I'll leave it at that.

Joe, Sometimes the truth is so evident, as with the salvific mission of the Church, entrusted to it by Christ, that no more than a few words are needed to express it:

“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God” (I Corinthians, 6:9-11).

Hey Vito, you know more about the inner workings (and machinations) of the Vatican than I do. Who wrote the following on the 400th anniversary (two says ago) of the birth of the great Blaise Pascal? Could it have been Pope Francis himself, and could he have meant it? If yes, then perhaps I must adjust my opinion of him upwards.


Broither Bill, I think we are also at this point:

2 Timothy 4:3-4

King James Version

3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

And yet, when I go outside every morning, I always see how incredibly quiet the world actually is.


Francis is an admirer of Pascal, so he must have had had a hand in the letter; whether he wrote it or not is unclear, since it is known that he uses ghost writers; these include Mgr. Paolo Luca Braida and Mgr. Osvaldo Neves de Almeida for his speeches and public statements, and Archbp. And Víctor Manuel Fernández for Amoris Laetitia. This does not mean that Francis does not know Pascal; in fact, he not an entirely uncultured person, having an appreciation classical music and literature.


Thank you for the measured response. Bergoglio's ghostwriters did a fine job with the Pascal piece.


It is your inner spiritual quietude that allows you to appreciate the outer physical quiet.

Hans Urs von Balthasar's PRAYER arrived today. It may interest you. He is a first-rate theologian, but his writing is not 'popular.'

As for lust, our concupiscence is at the root of many of out troubles.

The Synod’s Instrumentum Laboris: Fulfilling the Freemasonic Dream of Annihilating the Papacy with Local Churches
By: Robert Morrison | Remnant Columnist


See this article?

The U.N. "expert" goes full bore against all that is true and good.

We will be sent to concentration camps.

We are answerable to our Creator and not to any government.

And the apostate Vaticain just sits there mutely.



And, while Mr. "Pope" is derelict in his duty, La Bella Signora Meloni, of Italy, takes up the slack:
