Out of Bergoglio's own mouth - Christian marriage is an ideal which cannot be met

The Bergoglian sycophantic, papolaters, especially those clericalists should now be held to account with pitchfork and torches, if necessary!

Here below, is his entire address to the John Paul Institute which he has now successfully taken over through the placement of those who will carry out his accursed, Amoris Laetitia, a piece of papal bile that will be anathematised for its heresy in the fullness of time. He quotes from "himself," below.

Most Reverend Excellency,

Monsignor Principal,

Gentlemen Professors,

Dear Students,

I am especially happy to open together with you this new Academic Year of the Pontifical John Paul II Institute, the thirty-fifth of its foundation. I thank the Grand Chancellor, His Excellency Monsignor Vincenzo Paglia, and the Principal, Monsignor Pierangelo Sequeri for their words and I extend my gratitude also to all those who have headed the Institute.

The farsighted intuition of Saint john Paul II, who greatly desired this academic institution, can be even better recognized and appreciated today in its fruitfulness and timeliness. His wise discernment of the signs of the times restored with vigor the attention of the Church and of human society itself, to the profundity and delicacy of the bonds that are generated from the conjugal alliance of man and woman. The development that the Institute has had in the five Continents confirms the validity and meaning of the “catholic” form of its program. The vitality of this project, which has generated an institution of such high profile, encourages the further development of initiatives of colloquium and exchange with  all academic institutions, also those belonging to different religious and cultural areas, which are committed today to reflecting on this most delicate frontier of the human.

In the present circumstances, the conjugal and family bonds are put to the test in many ways. The affirmation of a culture that exalts narcissistic individualism, a conception of freedom disengaged from responsibility for the other, the growth of indifference to the common good, the imposition of ideologies that attack the family project directly, as well as the growth of poverty that threatens the future of so many families, are all the more reasons for the crisis of the contemporary family. Then there are the open questions of the development of new technologies, which render possible practices which at times are in conflict with the true dignity of human life. The complexity of these new horizons recommends a tighter bond between the John Paul II Institute and the Pontifical Academy for Life. I exhort you to frequent courageously these new and delicate implications with all the necessary rigor, without falling “into the temptation of varnishing them, of perfuming them, of adjusting them somewhat and of domesticating them” (Letter of the Grand Chancellor of the Pontifical Argentine Catholic University, March 3, 2015).

The uncertainty and disorientation that touch the fundamental affections of the person and of life destabilize all the bonds, those of the family and the social, having the “I” prevail increasingly over the “we,” the individual over society. It is a success that contradicts the plan of God, who entrusted the world and history to the alliance of man and woman (Genesis 1:28-31). This alliance — by its very nature — implies cooperation and respect, generous dedication and shared responsibility, ability to recognize difference as richness and promise, not as motive for subjection and malfeasance.

The recognition of the dignity of man and of woman implies a just appreciation of their mutual relationship. How can we know in depth the concrete humanity of which we are made without learning it through this difference? And this happens when man and woman speak to each other and question one another, love one another and act together, with mutual respect and benevolence. It is impossible to deny the contribution of modern culture to the rediscovery of the dignity of the sexual difference. Therefore, it is also very disconcerting to see that now this culture seems to be blocked by a tendency to cancel the difference instead of resolving the problems that mortify it.

The family is the irreplaceable womb of the initiation of the creaturely alliance of man and woman. This bond, sustained by the grace of God the Creator and Savior, is destined to be realized in the many ways of their relationship, which are reflected in the different communal and social bonds. The profound correlation between family figures and the social forms of this alliance – in religion and in ethics, in work, in the economy and in politics, in the care of life and in the relationship between the generations – is now global evidence. In fact, when things go well between man and woman, the world and history also go well. In the opposite case, the world becomes inhospitable and history stops.

The testimony of humanity and of the beauty of the Christian experience of the family must therefore be inspired again more in depth. The Church dispenses God’s love for the family in view of its mission of love for all the families of the world. The Church – which recognizes herself as family people – sees in the family the icon of the God’s covenant with the whole human family.  And, in reference to Christ and to the Church, the Apostle affirms that this is a great mystery (cf. Ephesians 5:32). Therefore, the charity of the Church commits us to develop – on the doctrinal and pastoral plane – our capacity to read and interpret, for our time, the truth and the beauty of God’s creative plan. The radiation of this divine project, in the complexity of the human condition, calls for a special intelligence of love. And also a strong evangelical dedication, animated by great compassion and mercy for the vulnerability and fallibility of the love between human beings.

It is necessary to apply oneself with greater enthusiasm to the rescue – I would almost say to the rehabilitation – of this extraordinary “invention”  of divine creation. This rescue must be taken seriously, be it in the doctrinal sense as well as the practical, pastoral and testimonial sense. The dynamics of the relationship between God, man and woman, and their children, are the golden key to understand the world and history, with all that they contain. And, finally, to understand something of the profound, which is found in the love of God Himself. Can we succeed in thinking thus “greatly”? Are we convinced of the power of life that this plan of God bears in the love of the world? Are we able to snatch the new generations from resignation and re-conquer them to the audacity of this plan?

We are certainly very aware of the fact that we also bear this treasure in “earthen vessels” (cf. 2 Corinthians 4:7). Grace exists, as does sin. Therefore, we must learn not to be resigned to human failure, but let us sustain the rescue  of the creative plan at all costs. It is right, in fact, to recognize that at times “we have presented a theological ideal of marriage that is too abstract, almost artificially constructed, far from the concrete situation and of effective possibilities of families as they are. This excessive idealization, especially when we have not reawakened confidence in grace, has not made marriage more desirable and attractive, but all the contrary” (Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia, 36). God’s justice shines in fidelity to His promise. And this splendor, as we learned from Jesus’ revelation, is His mercy (cf. Romans 9:21-23).

The twofold Synodal appointment of the Bishops of the world, cum Petro e sub Petro, has manifested concordantly the necessity to extend the Church’s understanding and care for this mystery of human love, in which the love of God gains ground for all. The Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia makes a treasure of this extension and solicits the entire people of God to render the Church’s family dimension more visible and effective. The families that make up the people of God and build the Lord’s Body with their love, are called to be  more aware of the gift of grace that they themselves bear, and to become proud to be able to put it at the disposition of all the poor and the abandoned that despair of being able to find or re-find it.  Today’s pastoral topic is not only that of the “distance” of many from the ideal and practice of the Christian truth of marriage and the family; more decisive yet is the topic of the Church’s “closeness”: closeness to the new generations of spouses, so that the blessing of their bond convinces them increasingly  and accompanies them, and closeness to the situations of human weakness, so that grace can rescue them, give them new courage and heal them. The Church’s indissoluble bond with her children is the most transparent sign of God’s faithful and merciful love.

The new horizon of this commitment certainly sees your Institute convoked, in an altogether special way, to sustain the necessary opening of the intelligence of the faith at the service of the pastoral solicitude  of the Successor of Peter. The fruitfulness of this task of further reflection and study, in favor of the whole Church, is entrusted to the impetus of your mind and your heart. Let us not forget that “good theologians also, as good Pastors, smell of the people and of the street and, with their reflection, pour oil and wine on men’s wounds” (March 3, 2015). Theology and pastoral <care> go together. A theological doctrine that does not let itself be guided and molded by the evangelizing end and by the pastoral care of the Church is all the more unthinkable than a pastoral of the Church that is unable to make a treasure of the revelation and of her tradition in view of a better intelligence and transmission of the faith.

This task calls for being rooted in the joy of the faith and in the humility of joyful service to the Church. Of the Church that exists, not of a Church thought in one’s image and likeness. The living Church in which we live, the beautiful Church to which we belong, the Church of the one Lord and one Spirit, to whom we give ourselves as “unworthy servants” (Luke 17:10), who offer their best gifts. The Church we love, so that all can love her. The Church in which we feel loved  beyond our merits, and for which we are ready to make sacrifices, in perfect joy. May God accompany us in this path of communion that we undertake together. And may He bless from now on the generosity with which you are about to sow the furrow entrusted to you.

Thank you!

Scroll up, scroll up, scroll up - has it finished yet?! That's what I think of this man's speeches - Trigger Alert - don't read them!

PF doesn't get the smell of the sheep at all, otherwise he would be condemning from the rafters the sodomites, satanists, abortionists & indifferent Catholics/Christians. He would not be in unity talks with schismatics & especially those who brought such destruction to the CC & introduced sodomite clergy, married sodomite clergy, women clerics & bishops, divorce, & are now telling the CC what they will accept as suitable changes to our liturgy in order for them to be friendly with us - not to rejoin us - but just to come together when suitable & sing a few songs & partake of bread & wine (not the Body & Blood of Christ).

The sheep don't want anything of this demeaning of Christ's Sacraments. They want to venerate Jesus in the True Holy Sacrifice of the Mass & Mary in the public recitation of the Rosary, Holy Hours & Benediction. They want the Old Rite restored & all false ecumenism ditched forever. If PF doesn't get it & neither the Hierarchy, then Rome is surely the next target for the wrath of God & deservingly so.

What a windbag he is! Mostly gibberish with a smattering of weasel phrases. Note the creepy, repeated use of the word "delicate" in regards to marriage bonds. Up until Vatican II sacramental marriage bonds were sturdy. It's as if he and his modernist minions are willing the bonds to be "delicate"". But isn't this what all good communists want?--the destruction of the nuclear family?

This p*pe would make a lousy teacher... ""A's" are just an ideal. Not realistic. Promoting "A's" makes "A's" LESS attractive to the students."

Come to think of it, he's a lousy teacher NOW.

My question is this: why is anybody still paying any attention to the Pope? We have seen that he has no clothes and so let's go on and live our faith with prayer, conviction and truth.

The man Bergoglio causes disgust in me.
It is impossible to imagine our Lord Jesus, after He taught a crowd, or spoke with a person, to run after them, once they rejected His teaching, once they did not repent their sins, and insisted that doing so would be unrealistic, and His teaching was presenting an ideal detached from realities of life.
It is impossible to imagine that our Lord would not let them go, and would accept the sin (for example, of two sodomites playing with their genitalia) - I will accompany you, and I will be friends with you, and I am inspired by the gifts you share with our united community. All are welcome to our "beautiful church".

Only one of two sinners was promised Heaven by our Lord, when He was hanging on the cross between them - the one who repented.

Bergoglio, I am not of one body with heretics, liars, duplicitous snakes, fornicators and adulterers, who persist in their sin. Obviously they do not know God, if filth still attracts them so much, that they are unwilling to make a decision to reject it, and instead make it into good.

Christianity IS about the cross, it is about rejection of the flesh, it is about love for that which is not of this world.

There is nothing you can do, Jorge Bergoglio, to make us reject the reality (not some ideal detached from our reality) of Jesus Christ. Those who love Him accept their yoke, for it comes from Him, for our benefit.

Jorge Bergoglio, you are a deceitful snake. Your flatteries and tenderness (for determined evil doers, not babies) smell really bad. You smell not of the sheep, but of Satan.

Amen Dorota amen.You are spot on in your analysis of this Heretical Rogue in our Church.Well said.

Kathleen1031 said...

Well he managed to mention Christ once, in paragraph three I think. I begrudgingly note that he defends relationship between man and woman as a good thing. Where are we that the pope defending relationship between a man and a woman has to be acknowledged! This world is certifiable. And I personally don't want to hear another word about stinking sheep. Or mercy. I've had it with mercy.

perhaps a name change towards the religion lead by our man francis? roman sounds divisive, espicially towards our Islamic brothers and sisters, who suffered so much as victims in their 7 century long completely defensive no rape no genocide war against the eastern roman empire. and catholic, this too is not only offensive to our protestant sistera and brothers, but also greek word, as well, who can understand this?

globalist episcopalian, a much more inclusive name than roman catholic

" . . . who offer their best gifts . . ." And there you have it, folks! Under cover of this phraseology, Amoris and all its heretical implications are smuggled into this speech--which the Bishop of Rome most rudely insisted on giving himself--and into the Institute which has since suffered the fate of Vince Foster. Our "best gifts," eh? Just like Amoris says. If institutionalized adultery is the "best" we can do, then apparently God Himself has no right to object. What of active homosexuals who are doing their "best," abortionists and their clients who are doing their "best," drug dealers, prostitutes, and jihadis who are doing their "best"? As is quite evident by now, according to Jorge Bergoglio, EVERYONE is doing their best, except for anyone who happens to disagree with him. The pernicious relativism masquerading under the mantra of "doing one's best" is pumped into the parish system relentlessly, like a pollutant throughout a water supply, by the "Dynamic Catholicism" of Matthew Kelly. It is time to contrast this spiritually crippling if enchantingly packaged message with the Gospel principle acknowledged and lived by the saints: Be ye perfect, as your Heavenly Father is perfect.

Sandpiper said...

Kathleen, beware, imbedded in this Modernist gasbag's address are weasel words. Marriage between a man and woman is simply an ideal. The church "loves all families" meaning of course it cannot but approve of marriage between homosexuals,transsexuals and whatever means they employ to produce offspring: donor gametes,rent-a-womb.

Karl, I row a boat identical to yours. Time for you to come and join us Catholics ol' chap.

From this faithful abandoned Catholic father and husband to Jorge Bergoglio:

You know well who I am, so do your Canon lawyers. Please excommunicate me formally, so I can be rid of the stench you have brought to Catholicism.

"...I row a boat identical to yours."

I am sorry that you have faced what I do.

BTW, I am Catholic, though not a perfect one.

Thank you.

when did the Church not recognize holy matrimony as a wonder sacrament for Christ's statement, "Be fruitful and multiply". When did the Church not say it would always be difficult but pray! Pray! and still more Pray and then even more pray. When did the Church stop saying and teaching that as long as we put out an effort to be perfect or in the words of this Pope "ideal" that God condescends to add what is missing. May I ask you all to say what is missing in to many marriages today. I will give my three cents worth. It is called children. There is a another component missing it is called faith. How does faith work in marriages with lots of children God provides for those who keeps the Faith.
In reading this document horribilis I get the meaning that grace and sin are close together very lutheran where there is sin grace is more abounding.
I quote "Then there are the open questions of the development of new technologies, which render possible practices which at times are in conflict with the true dignity of human life. The complexity of these new horizons recommends a tighter bond between the John Paul II Institute and the Pontifical Academy for Life. I exhort you to frequent courageously these new and delicate implications with all the necessary rigor, without falling “into the temptation of varnishing them, of perfuming them, of adjusting them somewhat and of domesticating them.
Does he hint here that birth control should be courageously used or new technologies that are medical and can operate on babies in the womb. With the Janus like double speak which has scandalized the church. I hesitation to think what and where this will lead us to practice. To courageously use birth control in defiance of God is somewhat stupid and foolish.
