Is There A Roman Instruction Forbidding Confessions?

Hilary White writes on Twitter (March 28) that a friend of hers was allowed to attend Annunciation Mass in parish somewhere in Rome's modern parts. The friend asked ton confess, even at a distance …

@Caroline03 You would do well to review the history of St. Athanasius. ;-) www.unamsanctamcatholicam.com/…/559-obedience-o…

"No sooner is a Pope elected, than somebody kills him, but to the enemies horror, no sooner is one dead that another is elected that takes his place."
I read that somewhere and have memorized it. It was a Prophecy of a Catholic Saint.

and it struck me quite forcibly, how little evidence there is in all modern day Popes, that they continue in any way the Church led by pre-Vatican II Popes. As for St Athanasius, he would rebuke Francis TOO! 🙂 Back in those days the Church Laws called for homosexual clergy to be whipped, publicly, stripped of their robes and spat on. If St Athanasius had caught the Pope washing the feet of an unrepetant Transexual, or greeting married homosexual couples with a friendly hug, he would have called down the wrath of God to smite him down for BLASPHEMY! He would have made not apologies, NO TRUE Christian should! St Athanasius would call those impious practices "Satanism" - NOT "Modernism."

We are not aware of what is TRUE as regards St Karol Wojtyla, OR Cardinal Siri. ALthough one mystic did prophecise a Pope Gregory XVII - and I believe another Mystic spoke of "The Pope in Red"

All I know is that a Church Historically existed, that Christ founded on the Rock of Peter. If Peter seems to not be Peter any longer, whether someone has imprisoned/bumped off the TRUE Peter and placed "Judas" on his See every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.....should not affect what we all know now to be TRUE Dogmatic Church Teaching handed down to us from the Apostles... Popes come and go, but we are called elsewhere to resist a Pope who might teach error at some juncture. If Bergoglio is or was ever a Freemason/Marxist sympathizer he appears to be serving both Christ and Belial, and Christ confirms that none of us is able to serve two Masters

Yet, a "Pope" expects me to believe that the same Selfless, Self-sacrificing God, forbids us Confession that is meant to save our souls?

There is only ONE reason why Christ would have called Francis (whether he is Pope or not) to tell the entire group that is led by him to close their churches, and to prevent their flock from receiving the Sacraments, and that is if Divine Judgement was upon them all and they were no longer considered obedient enough or worthy enough to administer them . Historically urged to instruct all the souls that have been given them to rebuke, console, chastise and uphold in all the Traditions of the Latin Rite Church. Yet, Hardly anywhere today is that necessary spiritual fortification anywhere to be gained, other than within the Traditionalist Church and the Latin Rite trained Priests. Ultraviolet! I need to attend the Sacraments, I want to receive absolution, and if a Priest is anywhere who is willing to receive my Confession, then, it is authorized by God that I be so blessed - If I find one, then God no doubt accepts that He is validly ordained to absolve me of my sins. Christ will urge that Priest to do so in His Name. For He LOVES and would prefer me not to die without receiving absolution. If I doubt that, and if Francis is speaking for Christ, then Christ - like Aslan is no longer Christ at all. As Lewis stated in "The Last Battle" He has become a False Aslan."

Basically unless Francis is given permission by Our Lord to re-activate the Priesthood of all those Priests who are obedient to his new laws, - we can see that this passage out of the Book of Apoc. appears to have been completely fulfilled.

"Come OUT of Her My people lest you partake of Her Sins and Her Plagues."

"Christ confirms that none of us is able to serve two Masters."

Nor are we, the laity, required to do so. We follow the Christ via the Church. Christ's teachings were clear. The Church's have been as well, regardless of the wonky muddle Francis makes of them.

"If Peter seems to not be Peter any longer, "

...as I have told many of Francis' critics, he is nothing new. There have been many, many "bad Popes" in history.We've had over sixty years of Vatican Council II's disastrous reforms now. Yet the Church has always survived poor leadership and calamities because the Church is eternal.

"but we are called elsewhere to resist a Pope who might teach error at some juncture."

Resisting a Pope presupposes recognizing that he -is- Pope, which many of Francis' critics simply refuse to do. That is the lesson of St. Athanasius. He may have disagreed with the Pope but he still recognized holder of the office as legitimate. To do otherwise is to place one's self into schism with the Church.

"and Christ confirms that none of us is able to serve two Masters."

Nor should we. Pope Francis is not our Master. Christ is.

"Yet, a "Pope" expects me to believe that the same Selfless, Self-sacrificing God, forbids us Confession that is meant to save our souls?"

Would you please be so kind as to supply a direct quote from His Holiness stating this? i.e. "God, forbids us Confession that is meant to save our souls"... I seem to have missed that pronouncement from him.

"There is only ONE reason why Christ would have called Francis (whether he is Pope or not) to tell the entire group that is led by him..."

You presuppose that Christ is speaking to Pope Francis or through Pope Francis.. On what grounds? Has Pope Francis EVER displayed any evidence of Christ speaking to/ through him? :D

"Ultraviolet! I need to attend the Sacraments, I want to receive absolution, and if a Priest is anywhere who is willing to receive my Confession."

If you feel your soul is in -that- level of jeapordy, there is a solution. GTV has a number of articles on priests in the US who still offer confession. Check which parishes they serve. Get a bus ticket and go. I admit this might well be the single most financially expensive confession you ever make, but compared to the value of your soul, that's a small price to pay, yes? ;-)

You seem like a nice person, Caroline so I can't imagine you committing any sin requiring such urgency. Also remember, if you've completed at least one of the Five First Saturdays Devotion, the Blessed Mother promised she'd "assist at the hour of death with the grace necessary for salvation". Under these circumstances, I'm sure God's going to take the situation into account.

"If I doubt that, and if Francis is speaking for Christ, then Christ - like Aslan is no longer Christ at all."

The Last Battle was such a trippy allegorical book. Some of it drifted away from Catholic teaching, too. There is no salvation outside the Church and Aslan was saying differently, with that long quote about doing good in the name of a foreign god counts as doing good in his name.

Hurts me to say it, but Lewis just didn't know how to end the series. It's much easier to reason that a.) God allows humanity free will. b.) humanity misuses its free will to do foolish things c.) electing Francis as Pope is a good example of b.). :D

Try not to frighten yourself into believing the Apocalypse is happening. It isn't. Easy proof: Our Lady of Fatima's predictions must first come true -before- the Apocalypse. Likewise those of Our Lady of Akita. Unless I missed the event, there hasn't been anything even close to fire falling from heaven and killing off most of humanity.

Can't wait to see the posts on GTV when it starts happening, though. :D

Go bother someone else, pattfm. You have nothing to contribute, as usual, and it shows.

If any Priest reading the above STILL insists that there is a lawful Pope on the See of Peter and believe he has a right to prohibit Confessions....well.... you've not only lost a true sense of what Roman Catholicism is , you're going to be losing your soul!

Throughout History, the only individual who preferred us to die without Confession was The Devil.
