Francis: Church Must "Let Go" Her Traditions

The Church needs the "courage" of letting go her traditions, Pope Francis preached during a Mass for Caritas Internationalis (May 23).

His starting point was the decision of the Council of the Apostles (Acts 15) that pagans embracing the Faith don't need to accept judaism first.

Francis deduced from this that the first Christians "left behind" important religious traditions and precepts. But this is not true: These things were not "left behind" but fulfilled.

Then Francis fantasized that the early Christians did not need a "pile of doctrines and traditions” but only the announcement that “God is love,” disregarding that Catholic doctrine cannot be and never was reduced to a slogan.

Francis speculated that Christ didn't tell his disciples many things so that the Church would learn "to renounce the desire for clarity and order.”

That's not true either: Christ promised his apostles the Holy Spirit who would teach them "everything" while confusion and disorder are signs of the devil.

Nevertheless, Francis is ultimately right: He needs renouncing his worn-out liberal traditions that have brought the Church to the brink of perdition.

The slogan "God is love" can be used to justify every evil imaginable, as Pope Francis knows only too well. Using his infernal logic, if "God is love" then any sin a person loves to commit is "of God." His holiness is much given to ruthlessly destroying the careers of his subordinates and stridently denouncing his ideological opponents, all out of "love".

By focusing on "love" Pope Francis has given a proverbial blank check to the Left. Any moral atrocity they commit can always be justified out of "love" for someone in some context.
The Church needs to let go of the homoheretics. St Anthony hammer of heretics, ora pro nobis.

I think Francis means that the Church should stop being Catholic.

He means that the RCC must abandon Jesus Christ's Church and become One World Government Church. Thanks be to God for exposing the wickedness of them all.

He needs to read the Pastoral epistles and the Apostolic Fathers whose main concern was the insinuation of false doctrine. Where does this man come from? What theological training did he miss?

Come from the fire?

Maybe we need to let go of this Pope too, and let go the Spirit of VII and go back to the TRUTH!

The Church needs the "courage" of letting go her traditions, Pope Francis preached...

Here is one tradition that certainly needs “ letting go.”
Why should the supreme pontiff be in that office until he dies? This is too much power and authority for one man. (He is just a man, right?)

Why not let go of this obsolete tradition and get new ideas, fresh faces, bold innovators and individuals who represent the laity more directly. Perhaps accept nominations from elected political figures who more accurately represent the people of the church at large. The fine points of who will be among those potentially chosen (likely but not definitely limited to cardinals) can be refined over time. The important thing is that, as the pope said, “The Church needs the "courage" of letting go her traditions.”

The elected officials making these suggestions could start with President Trump of the United States and Matteo Salvini of Italy.

Read this line from Francis again: "Jesus intentionally omitted telling his disciples many things so that the Church would learn to renounce the desire for clarity and order"
What he said is absolutely ridiculous!
I recently read somewhere that he is saying this to set up for his next big change... for when he goes to the Amazon...
...Possibly something to do with the priesthood or some Catholic traditions which we hold dear. Please, pray that the bishops/cardinals do their duty. Heaven help us.

Renouncing the desire for clarity and order is renouncing the desire for the Universal Logos, who is Jesus the Christ. No more clear evidence can be had why Bergoglio uses ambiguity, double talk, and equivocation so systematically to sow confusion, doubt and division among the faithful. What is perfectly clear is that such confusion is of the Devil.
