Going Backwards? Old Francis Scorns Young Faithful Priests

Francis - who led the Church back to the conflicts of fifty years ago identified the "present suffering of the Church" as a temptation to go "backward.”

He told Slovak Jesuits on September 13 that “going backward” is an “ideology that colonises minds” - whatever this means (transcript: LaCiviltaCattolica.com, September 21).

Haunted by his hatred for the Roman Mass and without being asked, Francis talked about Traditionis Custodes, “I hope that with the decision to stop the automatism of the Ancient Rite we can return to the true intentions of Benedict XVI and John Paul II” - suggesting that quashing Benedict's intention was in Benedict's intention, thus, taking his audience for fools.

Francis complained that young priests, after a month of ordination, ask their bishops for the Roman Mass and qualified this as "going backward” - while, in reality, celebrating the Mass of All Ages is a huge step forward out of the mess left by the secularised and failed Novus Ordo.

He repeated the story of a cardinal who told two newly ordained priests who asked him for permission to study Latin to celebrate the Roman Mass, to study Spanish or Vietnamese instead, to serve local communities. However, the Latin Mass serves all nations and all languages, unlike the vernacular Novus Ordo.

Again, Francis fooled the faithful by saying that gender ideology - which is synonymous with homosexualism - was "abstract" - whatever that means - and "dangerous" but had "nothing to do with homosexualism.

About people who look at him with suspicion, Francis said that there is a large Catholic television channel that has no hesitation in continually speaking ill of the pope, "I personally deserve attacks and insults because I am a sinner, but the Church does not deserve them." He made it clear that he is unable to accept criticism and to learn from it, so he lashed out on clerics who make “nasty” comments about him, “I sometimes lose patience, especially when they make judgments without entering into a real dialogue.”

But the real problem with "dialogue" is Francis who admitted that "I don't want to enter in their world of ideas" - i.e. to dialogue with them. "That's why I prefer to preach, preach…" Preaching is a monologue.

The evil of Francis is obvious and we need not dwell on it,we need to pray!

Gender ideology is abstract.
That you say when you hold the doctrine that knowledge, truth, and morality exist in relation to culture, society, or historical context, and are not absolute. And that is not Catholic.
Moreover gender ideology is not abstract. Gender ideology is simply not an issue that the church should mingle with.

Francis never stops railing against the past. I wonder if he ever read the first sentence of St. John's Gospel.....

Francis despises "the automatism of the Ancient Rite" because it doesn't allow for his entirely non-Catholic "ecumenical" innovations.

"we can return to the true intentions of Benedict XVI and John Paul II". It's a foul thing to put thoughts in a dead man's head, and even worse when the first one isn't even dead yet.

"He repeated the story of a cardinal who told two newly ordained priests who asked him for permission to study Latin to celebrate the Roman Mass, to study Spanish or Vietnamese instead,"

...because Spanish or Vietnamese are the official languages of the Roman Mass, yeah? Sounds like this (probably fictional) Cardinal was a Francis-appointee. :P

Marxists like Francis were the ones who destroyed Western support for the non-Communis South Vietnamese government, too.

"I personally deserve attacks and insults because I am a sinner, but the Church does not deserve them."

...implying attacking the former equates to attacking the latter. Or that attacking a few Church leaders implies attacking all of them. Fallacy of Composition. Protip for the Pope. You aren't The Church, your Holiness. You're just the lates disgrace to lead it. You aren't the first and you won't be the last, but you aren't The Church Herself.

"I sometimes lose patience, especially when they make judgments without entering into a real dialogue." --and "real" dialogue is defined by him. Therefore every statement he can not or will not address (like the Dubia) isn't "real" dialogue. Fallacy of Circular Reasoning.

Isn’t “Always Forward” some sort of neo-marxist slogan?

"... with the decision to stop the automatism of the ancient rite ..." Notice the absolute contempt for the True Mass, or beloved Rite that goes back to the time of the Caesars.

Make the Pope's words your own: "There are also clerics who make nasty comments about me. I sometimes lose patience, especially when they make judgments without entering into a real dialogue... I go on without entering their world of ideas & fantasies."
