Sex-Abuser Rupnik’s Occult Art

It recently became known that the Vatican covered up for sex-abuser and Jesuit priest, Marko Rupnik. Apparently he was excommunicated in 2019 for serious abuse of the sacrament of Confession – absolving a woman with whom he had fornicated. This unfortunate woman was only one of at least nine with whom he undertook such relations, but it was all swept under the rug by the Jesuit-controlled CDF.

Our interest in this man is not so much for his despicable violations of his vow of chastity, but for his disturbing artwork. Rupnik is the man behind a couple of the Vatican’s very strange logos and also had a hand in the disturbing basilica at San Giovanni Rotondo – the newer version of St Pio’s pilgrimage site.

The logo for the Jubilee Year of Mercy:  “Christ sees with the eyes of Adam, and Adam with the eyes of Christ.”

Could be.

Or maybe this is a tribute to the Gnostic “third-eye” opening after ritual sodomy.

Rupnik’s logo for the 2022 World Meeting of Families, “This mystery is great”, says he. Well, it certainly is a mystery how an excommunicated priest came to design the official logo.

Interesting to see the third-eye symbolism recurring here; this time it is Our Lady and Jesus who share the third eye.

Some more of Rupnik’s talent can be seen in the Redemptoris Mater chapel in the Vatican. John Paul II had the chapel renamed in 1987 then refurbished in 1996. It was meant to be a tribute to his ecumaniacal obsession of uniting the Eastern and Western churches, but the artwork, mosaics completed in the style of Eastern iconography, appears to have an underlying anti-Christ theme to it.

One of the four walls was worked by Alexander Kornoukhov, a Russian Orthodox artist – this seems to be the wall directly behind the (rather bizarre) altar. Rupnik completed the other three walls, which show predominantly scenes from Scripture.

The Knights of Columbus loved the end result so much that in 2005, they paid for this panoramic online version to be set up so that interested parties could make a virtual pilgrimage. The images below are screenshots taken from that site. For a psychedelic taste of Rupnik’s work, you may wish to visit (or to avoid) the Aletti centre website.

It’s hard to know exactly what this depiction of the Annunciation is meant to represent. The scroll probably means that Our Lady was prophesied in the Old Testament, but by placing Her figure in such a way that She appears to be on the scroll itself reduces Her to a mere myth.

St Peter unlocks the door to his pawn-shop? Note the yin-yang style decoration of the circles.

Perhaps the strangest of the images is this one of Christ with his “as above, so below” gesture. Behind him, JPII looks on approvingly.

Interesting Masonic-style grip between Christ and the male figure to our left.

“New exegesis” suggests sodomy is not a sin.

There’s never a shortage of controversy when James Martin is involved – now he’s featuring theologians who are trained in the art of de-abominising sodomy. It’s all on his new, heretical website, Outreach, of course: the place to be when you kind of want to go to heaven but have no intention of giving up your lifestyle of vice.

A less thorough treatment of God’s opinion on sodomy could not be found than the one given in this article. The story is only 600 words, and 200 of those are quoting St Paul’s Letter to the Romans! The only accurate sentence is the opening one: “Romans 1:26-27 is frequently cited as Paul’s blanket condemnation of homosexuality.” That’s something on which we can all agree.

But according to the “groundbreaking” theology of the author, Fr Thomas Stedman S.J., St. Paul abhorred sodomy only because that vice was frowned upon by the Jews of his time – and not because it is intrinsically disordered.

“Paul comes from a religious tradition that forbids same-sex relations (cf. Lev 18:22; 20:13). Like many Jews of his day, he regarded such relations as a quintessential vice among Gentiles.”

But to say that Paul’s prohibition means God also abhors sodomy is “unnuanced” in Fr. Thomas’ view. That’s because, compared with the number of times St. Paul talks about other sins, sodomy barely gets a mention.

Maybe someone needs to point out to Fr. Thomas that most people aren’t tempted to actively engage in homosexual acts, whereas everyone struggles with the common sins that Paul mentions more frequently? His theological number-crunching leads the deluded Fr. Thomas to the conclusion that “same-sex relations are not the main issue—failure to recognize and honor God is.

Being a good progressive, Fr. Thomas undoubtedly believes in man-made climate change and experimental COVID treatments. But since St. Paul didn’t preach about those, would he say traditionalists have a better understanding of what God really thinks of those issues? I doubt it.

If Scriptural numerology was all Catholics had to rely on, then we wouldn’t believe in the Trinity (That word is mentioned precisely ZERO times in the Bible.) Nor would we believe in Our Lady’s Immaculate Conception and Assumption. Nor would be have faith in countless other elements of Catholic teaching which Scripture either veils in meaning or which are explicit but commonly misinterpreted by non-Catholics.

But even if all we Catholics had was Scripture, and there was no comforting support of Tradition, which in His Providence, God supplied for our salvation, then the meaning of St. Paul’s Letter to the Romans would still remain crystal clear: sodomy is a vice, and the blindness of the understanding experienced by Fathers Thomas and James is the consequence of wilful attachment to that abomination.

24 Wherefore God gave them up to the desires of their heart, unto uncleanness, to dishonour their own bodies among themselves.

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie; and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 For this cause God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature.

27 And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts one towards another, men with men working that which is filthy, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error.

28 And as they liked not to have God in their knowledge, God delivered them up to a reprobate sense, to do those things which are not convenient;

29 Being filled with all iniquity, malice, fornication, avarice, wickedness, full of envy, murder, contention, deceit, malignity, whisperers,

30 Detractors, hateful to God, contumelious, proud, haughty, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31 Foolish, dissolute, without affection, without fidelity, without mercy.

32 Who, having known the justice of God, did not understand that they who do such things, are worthy of death; and not only they that do them, but they also that consent to them that do them.

(Rom 1:24-32)

‘Tis the Season for Gaia worship

The Pope’s 2022 “Season of Creation” has just kicked off: it runs from September 1 to October 4th. Those dates are pretty handy for all the Wiccan nuns involved in the Church since the Spring/Autumn Equinox falls smack in the middle of the “Season”. But that’s just a coincidence.

Its theme is “Listen to the Voice of Creation”, which sounds like another Gnostic attempt at ‘discovering’ what God really wanted all along, diluting the Faith and getting us ready for the One World Religion.

The “Season” kicked off with a World Day of Prayer of which only the most obsequious parishes took any notice: the others were too preoccupied with trying to pay their utility bills.

The European bishops contributed by showing their devotion to The Science with an alarmist statement written in the style of Paul Erlich or Al Gore:

“Our own Europe has been faced with a genuine environmental catastrophe that, in 97% of cases, is attributable to the actions of man. In the 27 countries within the European Union, according to a recent estimate, fires have already devastated a total of 517,881 hectares since the beginning of the year, compared to 470,359 the previous year. Scholars are already hypothesising the transition from our era (Anthropocene) to the next one, to which they have already given the name “pyrocene”, the effects of which are already visible considering that CO2 emissions have reached levels that the planet has not known for well over 3 million years.

3 million years, eh? The author of Genesis might have something to say about that. Speaking of Moses, the symbol for this year’s Season is the burning bush. Its creators tell us why:

“Today, the prevalence of unnatural fires are a sign of the devastating effects that climate change has on the most vulnerable of our planet. Creation cries out as forests crackle, animals flee, and people are forced to migrate due to the fires of injustice.

They certainly have a thing about fire, don’t they? Then again, considering where most of them will be spending the afterlife, it’s no wonder that these heretics are predicting a “pyrocene” future.

Below is another little snippet from the “Season of Creation” website. I really don’t know what it means except that it isn’t helpful and it isn’t Catholic. It isn’t true, either, since the voices calling for “protection of the Earth from anthropogenic climate change” are among the loudest in society these days. Muted, on the other hand, are the voices of traditional and faithful Catholics.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many have become familiar with the concept of being muted in conversations. Many voices are muted in public discourse around climate change and the ethics of Earth-keeping.

These are voices of those who suffer the impacts of climate change. These are voices of people who hold generational wisdom about how to live gratefully within the limits of the land. These are voices of a diminishing diversity of more-than-human species. It is the voice of the Earth.

If Bergoglio had put as much effort into promoting the concerns of the Holy Trinity as he has to promoting Gaia, the Church – and he world – would be in a much better place.

Pope: Sweet song of praise for Creation has become 'anguished plea'
“A sower went out to sow” ….. dissent.

Paglia: Italy’s abortion law is a ‘pillar of society”

They said it would never happen – “they” being the Feting Francis Fan Club.

“They” said the Vatican’s sodo-clerics would never abandon the Church’s teaching on the sanctity of life. How wrong they were.

One of his closest (and most effeminate) allies, Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, President of the Pontifical Academy for Life, has told media that the Catholic Church doesn’t want to get rid of the Italian law which legalises abortion.

Referring to the child-killing Law 194 as a “pillar of our social life”, Paglia then went on to say something vaguely Catholic about problems with the declining birth rate.

TOO LATE, YOUR GRACE. The cat is out of the bag. You are not pro-life.

Commenting on the abomination, Archbishop Vigano said,

It is emblematic and revealing that the sect of apostates who infest the Catholic Hierarchy and have occupied its highest levels find themselves aligned with the ideological positions of the enemies of Christ, not only on issues that are seemingly unconnected – like the psychopandemic narrative and green ideology – but also in the denial of the very foundations of the Natural Law, including respect for life from conception to natural death.

Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano

Speaking of abominations, no reference to Paglia would be complete without remembering what he said after Roe vs Wade and Dobbs laws were aborted. At that time, Paglia issued a statement on behalf of the Pontifical Academy for Life saying that “It is not right that the problem (of abortion) is set aside without adequate overall consideration.

Meaning that it is not right that the Supreme Court should strike down an abortion law.

Because – and this is his main objection to child sacrifice – abortion is bad for the economy.

Demographic suicide = bad. Killing babies = a pillar of society.

You can’t have it both ways, Your Grace. the more frivolous among us might suggest that you pick a side, but unfortunately, the side you have chosen is all too obvious.

NEOM proves that the world is not overpopulated

Some Saudi Arabian overlords have designed this ultra-modern, if not dystopian, mega-city to house up to 9 million people., as part of their futuristic NEOM project.

Although is has a few drawbacks (ie it is full of high-tech surveillance and will be run by misogynistic Islamists, people will be relying on bugs and lab-grown meat for their food, and non-elites will never see the outside world) the project does prove one thing: that planet earth, as created by God the Father, has plenty of room for billions upon billions of human beings.

Repeat after me:

The world is not overpopulated.

The world is not overpopulated.

The world is not overpopulated.

This French Mystic predicted the Adrenochrome trade

Blessed Marie-Julie Jahenny is well-known for her prophecies about the rise of a false Church and the Three Days’ Darkness, but a newly-released book on Marian prophecies includes rare predictions from the mystic which seemingly include references to cannibalism and the adrenochrome trade.

…today it [the world] makes a hellish trade, the likes of which the world has never seen before … All is delivered up, everything is sold and new plots are being hatched every day. The hunger to devour human flesh, the thirst for human blood makes all their bodies seethe with unrest, and consumed with a desire to reach their goal as soon as possible.

(Nov 1924)

Fairly graphic, isn’t it?

It is clear that Marie-Julie was given a premonition of something more than mere organ harvesting, or even of industrial scale organ trafficking trade, such as the one which has become institutionalised in China. She spoke of the “devouring” of human flesh and of the drinking of human blood.

This points to a civilisation on the brink of extinction; Hilaire Belloc believed cannibalism was the sign of a civilisation about to be annihilated. That certainly sounds like our Western culture.

When the New York Times starts running articles about cannibalism, then some red flags certainly start a-flying.

Marie-Julie had some inspirations about other aspects of our civilisation’s decline, as if to confirm the abysmal state of this evil generation. She foresaw a totalitarian society complete with surveillance and detention, as well as a return to the use of the guillotine – that highly-favoured implement of French revolutionaries:

The strong political party will be the one of evil’s victory … the small number will fall under the thunder of these voices who call for the blood and the flesh of bodies to “stretch their instruments” as they say. The Christian judges will be replaced in every part of France. The people will have to submit to surveillers or being sent to prison and finish one’s life under cutting weapons.

(Jan 1882)

I have no idea about what “stretching their instruments” refers to, but when searching, I came across a technique used in genetic experimentation known as “stretching”. Whether or not this is related to the prophesy, there is no doubt that many of the chastisements seen by Marie-Julie Jahenny stem from the world’s obsession with Scientism and that realm’s fascination with cells stolen from aborted babies.

As she said, “the world makes a hellish trade.” And nothing is more hellish than powerful adults misusing innocent children.

Whether you believe that adrenochrome is a real substance harvested by elites from terrified children, or whether you think it is Q-Anon bunkum, one thing is for sure: a hundred years ago, Blessed Marie-Julie Jahenny predicted that one day, a gruesome trade would be conducted on earth, to supply depraved customers with human flesh and blood. If that isn’t worthy of a divine intervention, then nothing is.

Spooky start to the Plenary Council?

Now, am I just imagining it or did something rather spooky take place during that quaint little pagan ritual preceding the Plenary’s Opening Mass?

You’ve probably already seen the video – an indigenous woman opened proceedings with an acknowledgement of the Cathedral site’s previous inhabitants, who were of course, itinerant and somehow forgot to mention those other former residents of the area – the Irish, English, Italian, Chinese, Polish, Tongan, New Zealand and so on who helped build our nation.

She went on to lecture the Catholics present about their need to learn from Aboriginal spirituality. Just as she mentioned that she was stolen from her family by the “Catholic Church” – note, not by members of that Church, who may well have been rescuing the unfortunate woman from a life of abuse – the altar cloth blew up quite noticeably, before falling back to its former vertical position.

“Listen to what the spirit is saying.”
“No, seriously. Listen.”

The video of the livestream can be found here (spookiness at around the 12 minute mark). Of course, I may be being too imaginative. (One can get away with such things on an anonymous website, after all.) Perhaps it is the talk of “male and female spirits” that has me on edge. I can imagine all those Plenary participants being exposed to demons, and then returning to the chanceries around the country with some (extra) evil spirits in tow. Or maybe it is the thought of all that smoke, “wafting through the entrance” to the church, which has been offered to devils instead of the pleasing scent of incense which should have risen up to honour the Holy Trinity.

There is another question to be asked: precisely who would even want to watch a livestream of the Plenary’s Masses? The entire event is completely irrelevant to most Catholics, who have far more important things to do than watch their hard-earned offerings being squandered on an unholy talkfest.

Just in case anyone was in doubt about the order being established at the 2nd session: the Plenary candle was lit FROM the smoking ceremony flame. That makes the PAGAN light the SOURCE of CHRISTIANITY’S light.

In her little speech, the woman makes the unusual claim that her DNA “predates Australia.” Well, it’s likely that the DNA of many people contains genetic markers that are older than that.

But, consider this: one needs to retrace only twenty generations to find that we all have ancestors in common. And another fifteen generations takes us all back to a common family.

So Adam and Eve being our common parents, we are all of the same family. My ancestors just happened to have come via Europe. And they brought some pretty fine technology, culture and philosophy along with them. Perhaps that is the acknowledgment that needs to be promulgated from now on – although I have a feeling the Plenary won’t get behind that idea. It’s simply too Christian..

Instead, the PC (political correctness) Assembly seems committed to implementing its predetermined agenda, come hell or high water. And with all those demons invited onto the sanctuary, hell is what it’s most likely to get.

Archbishop Vigano’s extraordinary interview with Steve Bannon

Well, I think it’s extraordinary, anyway.

A prince of the Church, a man cut from the same cloth as St Peter, opines on the Great Reset, its connection with the Bergoglian pontificate and a future time of peace. It makes for wonderful reading, and I’ve included a few highlights here. [The full interview is here.]

In some of your other statements, you have spoken of a “golpe bianco” (a “silent coup”).

A “silent coup” is a coup d’état that takes place without the use of force, carried out by a government that exercises power in an unconstitutional way.

In this case the coup was carried out in all the Western nations almost simultaneously, beginning with the first years of the 1990s. For Italy, this coup began with the divestment of investee companies and the privatization of services that normally burdened the treasury, such as health and transportation services, following the directives given by high finance to Mario Draghi on June 2, 1992, on the yacht Britannia. Yes, Mario Draghi, who at the time was General Director of the Ministry of the Treasury and whom then-President of the Italian Republic Francesco Cossiga called a “cowardly businessman.” In other nations this coup took place in an analogous way, with a series of progressive transfers of sovereignty to supra-national entities like the European Commission, the European Central Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and the World Bank. With the introduction of the euro [in 2002], monetary sovereignty was removed from the nations adhering to the Maastricht Treaty, transferring it to the European Central Bank, which is a private bank. This bank decides the rate with which it finances national budgets, using money that these same nations have already given it. In practice, the European Central Bank demands interest on money that it only returns a penny at a time, and only on certain conditions: reforms, cuts in public spending, the imposition of laws promoting gender equality, abortion rights, the indoctrination of children, etc. The introduction of a balanced budget requirement into the [Italian] Constitution – as if the State was a company – was also part of the silent coup.

All the members of these bodies, including the same rulers who have been appointed at the recommendation of non-elected powers or have succeeded in winning election thanks to the manipulation of information, are at the same time the servants of high finance power groups or of large investment funds – some were their employees, such as Draghi of Goldman Sachs – others became employees after their term ended. Just like the drug agencies and health organizations are composed of former BigPharma employees, who often receive consulting contracts and who are paid by the very pharmaceutical companies they are supposed to be keeping an eye on.

Up until the pandemic, power was in practice still managed at least formally by individual nations, and laws were passed by Parliaments. But for the last two years, the Parliaments have been deprived of authority, and all those whom the World Economic Forum and other lobbies have succeeded in placing at the high levels of governments and international institutions have begun to legislate against the Constitution and the interests of the Nation, obeying orders given to them from on high – “from the markets,” they tell us – which in fact is made up of a very small number of multinational corporations that engulf competing companies, flatten professional skills with damage to the quality of the product, and reduce the protection and wages of workers thanks to the complicity of unions and of the Left.

In short, we are governed by a high command of usurers and speculators, from Bill Gates who invests in large farms right on the eve of the food emergency or in vaccines just before the outbreak of the pandemic, to George Soros, who speculates on the fluctuations of currencies and government bondsand along with Hunter Biden finances a bio-laboratory in Ukraine.

To think that there is no relationship between the instigators of these crimes and those who carry them out at the highest levels of national governments, the EU, and the UN is a sign of bad faith, because even a child could understand that we are held hostage by a group of technocrats who are ideologically deviant and morally corrupt. The peoples of the world need to reclaim their sovereignty, which has been usurped by the globalist elite.

The instigators of this crime show themselves proudly at the Davos Forum, at meetings of the Trilateral Commission or the Bilderberg Group along with the rulers, prime ministers, directors of newspapers and television broadcasters, CEOs of social bankers and directors of social platforms and multinational corporations, bankers and directors of ratings agencies, presidents of foundations and self-styled philanthropists. All of these share the same agenda – which they publish on their websites – and are so confident in their own power that they affirm it with impunity – as Soros and Schwab have recently done – that it is necessary to create a narrative to be conveyed through the mainstream media, in order to make their decisions acceptable to the people. They embrace censorship and mass manipulation as instrumentum regni, and we have had proof of this both with the pandemic farce as well as with the pro-Zelensky propaganda in Ukraine.

We must understand that our rulers are traitors of our Nation who are devoted to the elimination of populations, and that all of their actions are carried out in order to cause the greatest amount of harm to citizens. It is not a problem of inexperience or inability but rather of an intentio nocendi – a deliberate intention to harm. Honest citizens find it inconceivable that those who govern them could do it with the perverse intention of undermining and destroying them, so much so that they find it very hard to believe. The main cause of this very serious problem is found in the corruption of authority along with the resigned obedience of those who are governed.

The Catholic Church also, beginning with the revolution of Vatican II and above all during the last nine years of the Bergoglian “pontificate,” has experienced the same cognitive dissonance: the faithful and the Clergy have resigned themselves to obeying mere cynical officials – who are no less corrupt and perverted than their counterparts in the deep state – although it has been evident that the purpose of the alleged “reforms” has always been the systematic destruction of the Church by its highest leaders, who are heretics and traitors. And I note that the deep church has had recourse to the same false arguments in order to pass off the doctrinal, moral, and liturgical dissolution: first of all, the false contention that those reforms were requested “from the ground up” and not imposed with force from on high. Just like the reforms planned by the World Economic Forum, the Bilderberg group, and the Trilateral are adopted by their infiltrators in the highest levels of nations and international organisms, making it appear that their plans are ratified by popular consent.

Is there any analogy between what is happening in the Catholic Church under the pontificate of Jorge Mario Bergoglio?

The deep church is an offshoot of the deep state, in a certain sense. For this reason it should not surprise us that we are witnessing the demolition of Faith and Morals in the name of ecumenism and synodality, applying liberal errors in the theological sphere; and on the other hand the transformation of the Papacy and the Roman Curia into a politburo in which ecclesiastical authority is both absolute and also released from its fidelity to the Magisterium, following the modalities of the exercise of power in a communist-type dictatorship. The law is no longer founded on Justice but rather on the convenience and utility of those who apply it: it is enough to see how harshly the clergy and faithful who are traditional are treated by the Vatican, and on the other hand with how much indulgence the Vatican praises notorious pro-abortion activists (I am thinking of Biden and Pelosi among the most striking cases) as well as the propagandists of LGBTQ ideology and gender theory. Here too, liberalism and communism have formed an alliance to demolish the institution from within, just as has happened in the civil sphere. But we know that contra legem fit, quod in fraudem legis fit – that which circumvents the law is done against the law.

Your Excellency, do you believe that the world can return to God?

The world can and must return to God: this is a necessity dictated by the divine order that the Creator has imprinted on creation. It must return to God, because only where Christ reigns can there by true justice and true peace. And the world can do this, but not in a collectivist or communitarian vision in which individuals disappear into the mass, but rather in a personal and individual vision, in which each one of us freely recognizes that nothing can be better than what Our Heavenly Father has prepared for us, since He loves us and wants to make us sharers in His glory.

If we all return to God, our Nations will also recognize His Lordship and will conform their laws to His Law. Let us pray therefore that what the Psalmist sings may be realized: Laudate Dominum omnes gentes; laudate eum omnes populi (Ps 116:1)– Praise the Lord, all you nations, praise him all you peoples. Quoniam confirmata est super nos misericordia ejus; et veritas Domini manet in æternum (Ps 116:2) – For his Mercy is confirmed upon us, and the Truth of the Lord remains forever.

Pelosi receives Communion at the Vatican

Fresh from encouraging the irate members of her pro-abortion coven to commit acts of violence and vandalism, Nancy Pelosi arrived in Rome a few days ago. A significant appointment on her agenda was celebrating the feast of Sts Peter and Paul by committing yet another egregious act of sacrilege at St Peter’s.

Although reports say that it was not the Pope who distributed the Eucharist to Pelosi, Bergoglio himself was in attendance at the Mass.

Previously, Pelosi had spoken at an event at the US Embassy in Rome, calling to mind one of her favourite rhetorical devices: invoking demonic spirituality (cloaked in Catholic imagery) to insult the Trinity.

Before the Mass, Pelosi had a talk with Bergoglio, at which she apparently received a blessing from him. After that, Pelosi went to a Francis-fave, the Sant’Egidio Community, and later handed over $25,000 in US-taxpayer money to the charity.

Perhaps the pontiff had run his new encyclical by Pelosi during their meeting. Part of it could have been written just for her:

” … everyone is invited to the supper of the wedding of the Lamb (Rev 19: 9). To be admitted to the feast all that is required is the wedding garment of faith which comes from the hearing of his Word (cf. Rom 10:17).” {Emphasis added.}

This novel take on admittance to the Holy Eucharist, seemed to have appealed to Pelosi. After all, during her address at the US Embassy, she remarked:

“Faith is an important gift, not everyone has it but it is the path to so many other things.”

A path to other things? Like that wide ol’ road to hell, Nancy?

Is Rome disappointed about the end of Roe vs Wade?

After the Roe vs wade was momentously overturned in the united states, The Pontifical Academy for Life issued a very strange statement.

Perhaps this is not so surprising when we remember that the Academies are no longer Catholic, being comprised of globalists, abortion advocates, sodomites and so on. The Pontifical Academy for Life is headed up by the pro-sodo Archbishop Paglia.

Some of the more questionable sections – apart from only one mention of the word, “abortion”: “After 50 years, it is important to reopen a non-ideological debate on the place that the protection of life has in a civil society to ask ourselves what kind of coexistence and society we want to build.” Hmmmm. A “non-ideological debate”? The Vatican doesn’t want those nasty prolife ideologues always insisting on sticking to Church teaching?

And this in direct violation of traditional Catholic teaching, “….adequate sexual education” and what is perhaps a nod to climate-driven depopulators:

” … a powerful invitation to reflect together on the serious and urgent issue of human generativity…”

I may have missed it, but did Pope Francis bother to mention this wonderful pro-life development at the World Meeting of Families?

“It is a time for healing wounds and repairing social divisions; it is a time for reasoned reflection and civil dialogue, and for coming together to build a society and economy that supports marriages and families, and where every woman has the support and resources she needs to bring her child into this world in love.”

The Court’s opinion shows how the issue of abortion continues to arouse heated debate. The fact that a large country with a long democratic tradition has changed its position on this issue also challenges the whole world. It is not right that the problem is set aside without adequate overall consideration. The protection and defense of human life is not an issue that can remain confined to the exercise of individual rights but instead is a matter of broad social significance. After 50 years, it is important to reopen a non-ideological debate on the place that the protection of life has in a civil society to ask ourselves what kind of coexistence and society we want to build.

It is a question of developing political choices that promote conditions of existence in favor of life without falling into a priori ideological positions. This also means ensuring adequate sexual education, guaranteeing health care accessible to all and preparing legislative measures to protect the family and motherhood, overcoming existing inequalities. We need solid assistance to mothers, couples and the unborn child that involves the whole community, encouraging the possibility for mothers in difficulty to carry on with the pregnancy and to entrust the child to those who can guarantee the child’s growth.

Archbishop Paglia said: “in the face of Western society that is losing its passion for life, this act is a powerful invitation to reflect together on the serious and urgent issue of human generativity and the conditions that make it possible; by choosing life, our responsibility for the future of humanity is at stake”.

Vatican City, June 24, 2022
