History Repeats Itself As a Farce: Francis Warns Against “Prophets of Doom”

Yesterday, Pope Francis opened the Synod of Bishops on the Youth with a mass in St Peter's Square. In his homily, he urged the delegates not to be smothered by - quote: "prophets of doom". John XXIII was the first to warn of "prophets of doom" in his opening speech at the beginning of Second Vatican Council. Karl Marx points out that all great world-historical facts occur twice, the first time as a tragedy, and the second time as a farce.

Delegates From the Communist Party

Francis especially welcomed the two delegates from China, two regime bishops who were handpicked by the governing Communists. According to Francis, thanks to their presence, the community of the episcopal college with the successor of Peter is – quote – “strengthened”. What Francis did not say: At this moment a merciless persecution of the Church is ongoing in China.

Francis: Read only La Repubblica

In his opening speech for the youth synod yesterday afternoon, Francis repeated his request not to listen to "prophets of doom". Now he was more concrete. One should not focus on mistakes and accusations, as they are addressed in "blogs" and news sites. On the other hand, Francis is very friendly with the big oligarch owned media with which he lives in a close relationship.

Does German Bishop Encourage Us to “Start With Immorality and Disbelief”?

Bishop Stefan Oster of Passau, Germany, who is considered to be a “Conservative” told the German Bishops’ news agency that the representative of the bishops’ "Association of German Catholic Youth" will ask at the Synod for a recognition of the homosexual concubinage. Oster added: "Today we can no longer start first with morality or dogma." In other words, Oster believes that today we need to start with immorality and unbelief.

Francis is Satan personified!

What Francis did not say: At this moment a merciless persecution of the Church is ongoing in China.

“For Christians alone, last year we documented persecution against 1,265 churches, with the number of people persecuted over 223,000. And that is just the tip of the iceberg,” Mr. Fu said. “In 2016, there were 762 cases of persecution, according to our documentation, with the number of people …More

It really is almost five times [as much].”

Here's an old joke with a slight adaptation.

A Communist, a Marxist and an Argentinian Progressive walk into a bar…
The bartender says "What would you like to drink, Your Holiness?"

Pope Francis greets 2 bishops from Continental China. 3 Communists walk into the Synod.

On his deathbed, the kindly Roncalli is said to have realised what he unleashed. His cries to 'stop the Council' went unheeded.

Francis either does't know, or he has conveniently overlooked the fact that Pope John XX111 tried to have the Council aborted. Yes that's correct! The Council had been 'high jacked' by revolutionaries, namely the Jesuit peritis who were advising their Bishops on the theological discussion points. Two major rival camps emerged.

Francis either does't know, or he has conveniently overlooked the fact that Pope John XX111 tried to have the Council aborted. Yes that's correct! The Council had been 'high jacked' by revolutionaries, namely the Jesuit peritis who were advising their Bishops on the theological discussion points. Two major rival camps emerged. The Progressives and the Conservatives. Ascendancy was achieved by the Progressives and by 'their fruits' we all have lost our way. Hence the severe mess the Church finds herself in. Warning against 'Prophets of Doom' will not put the Church back on course. 'Hoping it will all go away' - which appears what Francis is hoping for- is even a more bizarre position to take. CHRIST'S Church should be a beacon for all mankind. Given the depth of sinfulness in the very heart of the church, nothing short of a spiritual cleansing will result in the world once again seeing the Beacon of Christian welcome shining from St. Peters church.
