New Bergoglian Beatitudes

Whatever.

More Jesuitical babble.

Blah, blah, blah.

Whether any of these wishes of his are good is irrelevant. The temerity of this man to call them new "Beatitudes" is repugnant so much so, I feel as if I want to vomit as I did that night in March 2013 when he came out and showed himself.

  • Blessed are those who remain faithful while enduring evils inflicted on them by others and forgive them from their heart. 
  • Blessed are those who look into the eyes of the abandoned and marginalised and show them their closeness.
  • Blessed are those who see God in every person and strive to make others also discover him. 
  • Blessed are those who protect and care for our common home. 
  • Blessed are those who renounce their own comfort in order to help others. 
  • Blessed are those who pray and work for full communion between Christians.

Blessed are the blessed who bless blessedly.

Did he actually call them "Beatitudes"? That would be, I want to say temerity, is that the right word? Certainly presumptuous. It would be to put oneself in the same league as Christ, to be actually capable of producing "Beatitudes". Horrible. And I don't even like this mottos, or slogans, whatever they actually are. I wish there was a more descriptive word than "ugh".

Blessed are those who mistake not 'new' for 'good.'

I totally agree with you. Here's the original from the Vatican website:

I admit that I was floored when I read today's blog post. So it seems that the Beatitudes given by God Himself, Who IS good, perfect and incapable of error - aren't good enough anymore for certain people. "Aggiornamento" has reached Holy Scripture.

Lord, have mercy on us, for in You we place our hope. Be not exceedingly angry with us nor mindful of our transgressions but look upon us even now with mercy and deliver us from our enemies. For You are our God and we are Your people; we are all the work of Your hands and we call upon Your Name.

Deuteronomy 12:32
"Whatever I command you, you shall be careful to do; you shall not add to nor take away from it.

Do not add to His words Or He will reprove you, and you will be proved a liar.

Blessed are those who suffer Bergoglio, for they will be called Latter-Day-Jobs.

These sayings remind me of what you might find on chocolate bar wrappers which people collect! And then share and swap with each other
until the fad passes. Then they are all thrown into the wastepaper
basket. Shame, that. I wonder how the Choccy Martin tasted? We never got any feedback on that! I wonder how long this show will go on?

The last one is deficient and is an affront to Muslims, Jews, and Druids.

We don't want to get too hipper about these BE-attitudes as a Jesuit priest I know calls them. We have heard a lots worse from him, e.g. this statement made recently in Sweden: “Proselytism is a sinful attitude.”

Randall Gough said...

While not a big fan of the way Francis is taking the church I find it difficult to get worked up about these statements. To simplify the already simplified...
1. endure prosecution and forgive
2. be merciful
3. see God in all (a very Jesuit concept)
4. be nice to the earth (give a hoot, don't pollute)
5. embrace asceticism so others can have more
6. a prayer for Christian unity, even Christ prayed that we may be one.

Maybe I am hardened by some of the other things that Pope Francis has let fly in the past but these six don't raise my hackles that much.

Valdemar said...

I'm with Randall Gough on this.

I, too and repulsed by Pope Martin Saladin, the First Luthero-Muslim Pope of the Catholic church, but these, except for the mild slip of hubris in the naming, don't seem too awful. In fact, I actually think they have some good aspects to them.

JTLiuzza said...

Mr. Gough the content of the statements is really no surprise coming from this leftist/lutheran buffoon. Boilerplate stuff really. The audacity in referring to them as "new beatitudes" however, is staggering, even for Pope Humble™.

Chutzpah! (The classic definition of chutzpah is that given by Leo Rosten: "that quality enshrined in a man who, having killed his mother and father, throws himself on the mercy of the court because he is an orphan.")

Francis, the talking Pope, should be ashamed of himself.

Pope Francis "does Jesus" better than Jesus...or at least it seems that way! Isn't there some admonition about adding to/subtracting from Scripture?
