What kind of man is this Oscar Cardinal Rodriguez Maradiaga? What kind of evil has overwhelmed this priest?


What kind of man is this Cardinal Oscar Rodriquez Maradiaga? Who would sit so pompously as he has in this photograph? What arrogance. What hubris. What clericalism. What defiance of all humility and service. 

We have written before of this Cardinal, this close collaborator of Pope Francis.

How much pain it is to endure when we see these priests, these bishops and cardinals spew such as what you will read below. 

Was there ever in the history of the Church, any Cardinal who spoke thus about another brother Cardinal? Particularly one so known for his humility and peace?

As reported on Crux. this is what Maradiaga has said about Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke:

He was among four cardinals who submitted a set of questions, called dubia, to Francis, seeking to dispel what they described as “grave disorientation and great confusion” created by the document.
In the new interview, Maradiaga comes out swinging.
“That cardinal who sustains this,” Maradiaga said, referring to the criticism of Amoris, “is a disappointed man, in that he wanted power and lost it. He thought he was the maximum authority in the United States.
“He’s not the magisterium,” Maradiaga said, referring to the authority to issue official teaching. “The Holy Father is the magisterium, and he’s the one who teaches the whole Church. This other [person] speaks only his own thoughts, which don’t merit further comment.
“They are the words,” Maradiaga said, “of a poor man.”
Maradiaga also criticized conservative schools of thought in Catholicism, of which Burke is often seen as a symbol.
“These currents of the Catholic right are persons who seek power and not the truth, and the truth is one,” he said. “If they claim to find some ‘heresy’ in the words of Francis, they’re making a big mistake, because they’re thinking only like men and not as the Lord wants.
“What sense does it have to publish writings against the pope, which don’t damage him but ordinary people? What does a right-wing closed on certain points accomplish? Nothing!
“Ordinary people are with the pope, this is completely clear,” Maradiaga said. “I see that everywhere.
“Those who are proud, arrogant, who believe they have a superior intellect … poor people! Pride is also a form of poverty,” he said.
“The greatest problem, however, is the disorientation that’s created among people when they read affirmations of bishops and cardinals against the Holy Father,” he said.
Maradiaga called his fellow cardinals to loyalty.
“I think that one of the qualities we cardinals [should have] is loyalty,” he said. “Even if we don’t all think the same way, we still have to be loyal to Peter.”
Whoever doesn’t offer that loyalty, he said, “is just seeking attention.”

He writes of those who are "proud, arrogant, who believe they have a superior intellect." 

Who is this man but proud, arrogant, gnostic, who believes that the "poor (pathetic) people," have no ability to discern the truth from a lie, right from wrong, a sheep from a wolf?

He calls his fellow cardinals to "loyalty." Loyalty? If loyalty to the Bishop of Rome means disloyalty to Jesus Christ and what has come before then this writer will have no loyalty to that Bishop of Rome in matters where he is wrong. 

"Loyal to Peter," says Maradiaga. No, not if it means being disloyal to Christ!

He speaks of obeying a "magisterium," but ignores "collegiality." Is this Cardinal opposed to Vatican II?

His words are full of lies and slander.   

It is certainly not Our Lord Jesus in possession of this man's heart. To say what he has said, he can only have handed it over already to the evil one himself.

Father Z has suggested rosaries for Maradiaga. Perhaps and exorcism might also be in line.

Yep, That's Jorgee's boy, he does like them to be humble, just like him, so very humble indeed.. I have never known such a bunch of double faced Ba-t-rds sitting around the throne of jorgee's camp, as the bunch he promotes(with the exception of a few)into high office. Know them by their fruits. They really make me sick!

As various insightful people have noted over and over, we tend to criticize others for faults to which we are particularly liable. (Whether or not the people we criticize also have these faults.)

So, when Cardinal Maradiaga claims Cardinal Burke was seeking power, he's not saying anything relevant about Cardinal Burke. But he is showing that he himself is motivated by the lust for power.

And, no, I won't speculate on whether the fact Pope Francis has such a person as his henchman reflects on the Pope's own motivations.

What Kind of man would sit so pompously .....there is an eerily similar photo of one Cardinal Bernadine that comes to mind. Just another of satans minions.

This empty shell of a man is truly a demon in disguise. about PRIDE? He REEKS of pride.

A mere man is "the Magisterium"? Really "Your Eminence"? This belief that a mere man - in this case a man from Argentina - can somehow on a whim change, alter, decide the WIll of Christ is absolute blasphemy. It is known as "papolatry". Mohommedans hold this perspective, likewise believing that Mohommed received a direct "brain dump" from God.

This warped ideology of this evil, vile Cardinal is interesting too from another perspective. It actually reflects what Francis himself denounced regarding the false apparitions at Medjegorje. Just as it is repugnant that the Holy Virgin engages in mindless chit-chat and releases contradictory, foolish, false and ridiculous messages, so too is it repugnant that the Vicar of Christ is receiving similarly demonic messages on a daily basis from the "Holy Spirit" forming this so-called "magisterium".

Give him his props...he's got the Mafioso "Godfather" look down pat....

"The Holy Father is the magisterium, and he is the one who teaches the whole Church". What arrogant nonsense. PF has not taught or upheld Catholic Doctrine since his very dubious election but pulled apart over two thousand years of CC Dogma & Tradition, calling Catholic priests, journalists & laity vulgar & offensive names, refusing to speak ex cathedra on serious topics relating to the Magisterium as he knows full well he would be immediately denounced as a Manifest Heretic if he did. These scurrilous heretics have taken over the CC in order to scupper it from within. They have given us two living popes which goes against Tradition for which they hold no regard & are presently re-writing the Ten Commandments, denuded the Liturgy of Ages & demeaned the Sacraments & surrounded themselves with anti-Catholic advisers - infidels, abortionists, pro-abort populations controllers et al. How dare Cardinal Maradiaga cast aspersions against anyone, much less a fellow Çardinal of the stature of Cardinal Burke.

Agreed. Now all we need is for Peter to be loyal to Christ.

Exactly, John the Mad.

Not so much a cardinal as a dictator, on that picture alone. Scary.

Sorry. The red print is too difficult for my old eyes to read.


JayJay said...

I have to agree with above commenters, he looks scary - a step further, he looks possessed to me. Sorry bub, I mean Cardinal Madariaga, Magisterium is Tradition. You just voted yourself off the island. Don't let door hit your sorry south on the way out.

Yes yes...

Be Loyal to the Party!

The Party and the Chairman! Forever! Forward! Towards Utopia!

Let us build the Tower to Heaven!

Let us take Eden for ourselves!

Who does that lousy Angel with the fiery sword think he is?

Isn't he open to the God of Surprises? Always holding to Tradition and his orders to remain where he is! Always on guard, building walls between the People and the Tree of Health Care! He just wants power! Arrogance! Pride! Waving his sword against the rainbow parade poor peoples! Attention-Seeking Angel! Clearly only the devils deal with fire, like the arms dealers they are.
