Amoris Laetitia Turns Indissolubility of Marriage into “Phantom”

Father Giulio Meiattini, a Benedictine of Madonna della Scara Abbey in Noci, Italy, has published the book “Amoris Laetitia? I sacramenti ridotti a morale” (Amoris Laetitia? The Sacraments Reduced to Morals).

Meiattini explained to La Fede quotidiana (February 24) that Amoris Laetitia disorients the Christian families instead of confirming them in the faith because its Chapter 8 introduces a relativistic practice and does not properly consider the sacramental foundation of moral theology.

According to Meiattini Amoris Laetitia preserves the indissolubility of Christian marriage only in theory. In the light of the Buenos Aires interpretation which Pope Francis has called the only and official interpretation of Amoris Laetitia and which Meiattini considers “badly written” it is “impossible to say that the principle of indissolubility is respected.“

“One can insist with words that the indissolubility of marriage is sacrosanct, but if one allows those who live in notorious and stable infidelity to access to the sacraments, the indissolubility becomes a phantom”, Meiattini adds.

For him it would have been “not only opportune, but dutiful and polite” and “a sign of respect and willingness to listen” if Francis had answered the Dubia of the four cardinals regarding Amoris Laetitia.

This is as simple as a,b,c and clear crystally. Note the end of the Malachi quote. It seems God gave Malachi a vision of Jorge Bergoglio’s reign and an advance copy of Amoris Laetitia.

Jesus: "Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels."

Jorge Bergoglio: "No one is condemned forever."

This is as simple as a,b,c and clear crystally. Note the end of the Malachi quote. It seems God gave Malachi a vision of Jorge Bergoglio’s reign and an advance copy of Amoris Laetitia.

Jesus: "Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels."

Jorge Bergoglio: "No one is condemned forever."

Inspired word of God in St. Paul to the Galatians: " I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed."

Inspired word of God in Malachi 1: 6; 2: 7-9, 17: “A son honors his father, and a slave his master. If I am a father, where is the honor due me? If I am a master, where is the respect due me?” says the Lord Almighty. It is you priests who show contempt for my name. . . . And now, you priests, this warning is for you. If you do not listen, and if you do not resolve to honor my name, says the Lord Almighty, I will send a curse on you, and I will curse your blessings. Yes, I have already cursed them, because you have not resolved to honor me. . . . For the lips of a priest ought to preserve knowledge, because he is the messenger of the Lord Almighty and people seek instruction from his mouth. But you have turned from the way and by your teaching have caused many to stumble . . . So I have caused you to be despised and humiliated before all the people, because you have not followed my ways but have shown partiality in matters of the law. . . . You have wearied the Lord with your words. “How have we wearied him?” you ask. By saying, “All who do evil are good in the eyes of the Lord, and he is pleased with them”

As for me and my house, we'll stick with Jesus.
