Therefore, I highly recommend a visit to Toronto Catholic Witness for Barona's argument against this preacher of heresies who has the temerity to say that "we must never allow a moral issue like that of sexuality to divide us."
Raniero Cantalamessa; are you a sodomite or just a homosexualist?
If that is not bad enough, this heretic then has the temerity to state the "Christian world is preparing to celebrate the fifth centenary of the Protestant reformation." Is this man insane? Celebrate the loss of complete countries such as Estonia, Latvia, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and most of Germany along with Switzerland and England to heresy and the loss of millions upon millions of souls? I ask again, is Cantalamessa insane? This is religious indifferentism which is heretical.
Yes, 2017 is the 500th anniversary of that heretical devil Luther's tearing of the fabric of Christ. It is also the 100th anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima. Perhaps the Bishop of Rome might point out to him which is Catholic.
To show more about the danger of this betrayer of Christ and His Church, below are my comments and his homily from Good Friday 2013 which I wrote that day; the first as Jorge Bergoglio in the Chair of Peter.
He revealed then similar thoughts as to his comments before the Anglicans referred to above.
The preacher of the papal household.
A disgraceful Capuchin if every there were one.
The following is from a blog post which I wrote on Good Friday 2013 in response to this heretic's outrageous homily in St. Peter's Basilica.
Cantalamessa's Mess 1
"There is a short story by Franz Kafka that is a powerful religious symbol and takes on a new meaning, almost prophetic, when heard on Good Friday. It's titled "An Imperial Message". It speaks of a king who, on his deathbed, calls to his side a subject and whispers a message into his ear. So important is that message that he makes the subject repeat it, in turn, into his hear. Then, with a nod, he sends off the messenger, who sets out on his way. But let us hear directly from the author the continuation of this story, characterized by the dreamlike and almost nightmarish tone typical of this writer: "Now pushing with his right arm, now with his left, he cleaves a way for himself through the throng; if he encounters resistance he points to his breast, where the symbol of the sun glitters. But the multitudes are so vast; their numbers have no end. If he could reach the open fields how fast he would fly, and soon doubtless you would hear the welcome hammering of his fists on your door. But instead how vainly does he wear out his strength; still he is only making his way through the chambers of the innermost palace; never will he get to the end of them; and if he succeeded in that nothing would be gained; he must next fight his way down the stair; and if he succeeded in that nothing would be gained; the courts would still have to be crossed; and after the courts the second outer palace; and so on for thousands of years; and if at last he should burst through the outermost gate—but never, never can that happen—the imperial capital would lie before him, the center of the world, crammed to bursting with its own sediment. Nobody could fight his way through here even with a message from a dead man. But you sit at your window when evening falls and dream it to yourself”…We must do everything possible so that the Church may never look like that complicated and cluttered castle described by Kafka, and the message may come out of it as free and joyous as when the messenger began his run. We know what the impediments are that can restrain the messenger: dividing walls, starting with those that separate the various Christian churches from one another, the excess of bureaucracy, the residue of past ceremonials, laws and disputes, now only debris. In Revelation, Jesus says that He stands at the door and knocks (Rev 3:20). Sometimes, as noted by our Pope Francis, he does not knock to enter, but knocks from within to go out. To reach out to the "existential suburbs of sin, suffering, injustice, religious ignorance and indifference, and of all forms of misery."As happens with certain old buildings. Over the centuries, to adapt to the needs of the moment, they become filled with partitions, staircases, rooms and closets. The time comes when we realize that all these adjustments no longer meet the current needs, but rather are an obstacle, so we must have the courage to knock them down and return the building to the simplicity and linearity of its origins. This was the mission that was received one day by a man who prayed before the Crucifix of San Damiano: "Go, Francis, and repair my Church". "Who could ever be up to this task?" wondered aghast the Apostle before the superhuman task of being in the world "the fragrance of Christ"; and here is his reply, that still applies today: "We're not ourselves able to think something as if it came from us; our ability comes from God. He has made us to be ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; because the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life"(2 Cor 2:16; 3:5-6). May the Holy Spirit, in this moment in which a new time is opening for the Church, full of hope, reawaken in men who are at the window the expectancy of the message, and in the messengers the will to make it reach them, even at the cost of their life."
