A blog about the life & times of Jorge Bergoglio (aka Francis)
The divorced and civilly remarried were never 'excommunicated'. They simply couldn't receive communion because they were in a state of ongoing, public mortal sin. They were always able to commit to live a life of continence, receive the Sacrament of Penance (NOT reconciliation...this isn't Judaic double bookkeeping), and Extreme Unction. Disaster doesn't really describe Bergoglio. Bergoglio needs a properly ordained priest who can perform an exorcism.
You are 100% correct!!!
They probably have Fr. Gabriel Amorth locked up in a Vatican dungeon somewhere...
In the past, the divorced and civilly remarried were indeed excommunicated, not by reason of the divorce and remarriage but, rather, due to the fact that they could not fulfill the precept of the Church to receive Holy Communion during Eastertide.A Catholic who did not receive Holy Communion during that time incurred the penalty of excommunication. That's how "Christmas and Easter" Catholics came about.
I'm not sure about that; will have to check on it. Yes, a Catholic was obligated to confess mortal sins at least once per year, as a disciplinary rule, but I think it would take more than not being able to receive communion to excommunication a person. I think it would take being an apostate or heretic or similar. The main thing for a Catholic is to remain in a state of grace. So long as a person were to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of obligation, and confess at least once per year, not receiving Holy Communion would not necessarily excommunicate the person. As I say, I will look into that. If you have any disciplinary info that you are able to share, please do.
Speaking about presumption.. You're all in for a treat. Check out Francis' latest Homily (11 April) Santa Martha.He extols Judas. "Poor innocent Judas".If someone has an English translation, put on your seat belts.https://denzingerbergoglio.com/2016/04/11/el-pobre-judas/
I imagine the next two canonizations for Saints will be Martin Luther and Judas.
Don't forget Saint Ernesto (Che) Guevara.
Catechism #1735: "Imputability and responsibility for an action can be diminished or even nullified by ignorance, inadvertence, duress, fear, habit, inordinate attachments, and other psychological or social factors."
And obviously now, by purposeful and unrepentant sin, as is evidenced by the prolific and public displays of idolatry, heresy, sacrilege and blasphemy against the name of Jesus by the last four "popes."
What's "a state of mortal sin"? Maybe Ms/mrs/mr Marta elena bergoglio can catechize us......
Sin, sacrilege, blasphemy, and idolatry are the "virtues" of the counterfeit Church. Pray to God that he intervenes before Hell is so full, God will have to create a second one for the number of souls this apostate is sending there.
