According to her website, “Fr” Anne offers a range of “sacraments” including confession – but not Mass apparently. No doubt she does, but even demons have limits on what they are allowed to say in public.
Unsurprisingly, along with her other work, she supports LGBTIQ+ persons. Poor deluded woman.
At least she doesn’t identify as a man. And I s’pose we should be grateful that she wears clerics, which is more than most Jesuits are doing these days. Speaking of Jesuits, Anne is a fan of Ignatian spirituality and has run a Jesuit parish as a pastoral assistant.
Susan one day. Fr Anne the next.
Here’s what Anne says about her sacrilegious vocation: “The exclusion of women from the priesthood is rooted in an unjust law propped up by sexist theology. It’s really that simple. There is ever-increasing historical, archeological, theological and scriptural evidence that supports the ordination of women in the Catholic Church. After many long years of discernment, struggle, sacrifice and prayer, I had to finally obey God’s ask of me. Though some interpret my ordination as a sign of disrespect for the institutional Church, it is actually a great act of love for the Church I adore.“
Anne is involved with the wacky Women’s Ordination Conference. They seem to think that if they just keep nagging, God will let them be ordained – or at least that the bishops will let them. Here one suggestion from their website. It’s all very inclusive, and note that the Jesuits are singled out as being amenable to their requests:
There’s much more on their website, and it’s all rather tedious. Not the kind of thing any of us want to spend much time on.
EXCEPT that women like these are gaining influence in the Church and have the ability, as we saw at the recent Plenary Council, to throw a tantrum and gain a lot of sympathy and attention. Not to mention that they have bullied the bishops into rewriting the Australian lectionary in inclusive language. Which just might have been their goal all along.
Once they have that, a few of those new preaching positions, and a female diaconate, there will be no holding them back and “Fr. Anne’s” might start popping up all over the place. Lord have mercy.
A faithful priest has written a series of letters to the Pope, and has published them online since he received no answer. [The letters can be found here.]
Writing under the name Father Jesusmary Missigbètò:, he sets out the laundry list of serious problems with the Francis papacy, even suggesting that the Pope is Freemason.
Of course, there is no reason to believe that he will be answered: since the first days of the Pope’s refusal to respond to the Dubia, it has been pretty clear that Bergoglio is not in the business of “dialogue” when there’s a chance he’ll be shown up as the heretic he really is.
Despite that, it does the soul good, in some ways, to see one is not alone in one’s concerns about this papacy and that not every priest is a Modernist pushover.
An extract from the fourth letter follows:
O Father, why are you taking so long to rectify your obvious serious errors? Many Vatican analysts believe that you are part of ecclesiastical masonry (since Argentina you are officially an honorary member of Rotary International, usually considered close to masonic lodges). In fact, your errors go in the same direction as those of masonry: (devaluation of the Eucharist, homosexual cohabitation laws, abortion, anti-natalist measure of direct sterilization by hysterectomy, religious syncretism, etc. Moreover, Our Lady of Anguera seems to confirm this: “the poison is in the tree, not in the fruit” (3.790; March 16, 2013); “the poison is in the tree, and not in the fruit” (5.260; March 24, 2022).
V Such membership is forbidden and sanctioned with excommunication by the Catholic Church (cf. Encyclical Humanum genus, Pope Leo XIII, April 20, 1884; Code of Canon Law 1917, Canon 2335; Documents of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, February 17, 1981, November 26, 1983, March 11, 1985). Let us hope that Catholic journalists and intellectuals will have the courage to investigate, for the love of Jesus and his Church.
Pope Francis’ October address to the World Movement of Populist Movements contained all the technocrat talking points with which the world is so enamoured while omitting the solid Catholic teaching which it so desperately needs.
Characterised by America Magazine as nine “Commandments”, the Pope’s list of nine areas in need of change indicates that the Ten Commandments as given to Moses by God the Father are no longer suited to the Modern World. In true socialist style, the Pope called for an overhaul of the current capitalist system demanding the redistribution of wealth and the establishment of a Universal Basic Income. Presumedly expecting governments worldwide to take his advice and pick up the tab, he requested that workers’ hours be reduced in an effort to allow greater numbers to be employed.
He went on to say that the world is at a crossroads and that for mankind to return to its previous course would be “suicidal … ecocidal and genocidal.” The Pope also said that politicians should not be listening only to economic elites. This is quite bizarre, coming from the man who regularly meets with economic elites like Jeffrey Sachs, Paul Ehrlich, Ban Ki-moon, and Mark Zuckerberg.
The Pope claimed that the Catholic Church doesn’t have all the answers, but does have “some principles that can help along this journey to provide concrete answers, and to help Christians and non-Christians alike.” Without any mention of God or man’s duty toward Him, the Pope’s nine “commandments” instead cover almost all of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals:
Pharmaceutical companies should make patents for COVID “vaccines” freely available (SDG #3)
International credit institutions should cancel debt. (SDG #1 and #10)
Big resource corporations should stop polluting and stop destroying habitats. (SDG #7, 9, 13)
Food corporations should end monopolies and provide inexpensive food. (SDG #2)
Powerful nations should rely on global entities such as the UN for mediating conflict. (SDG #17)
Big tech corporations should censor “hate speech, fake news and conspiracy theories.” (SDG #11)
Arms manufacturers and dealers should completely stop arms production. (SDG #16)
Media corporations should provide digital education for the poor. (SDG #4)
The media should report in a moral fashion and protect those who are “most damaged.” (SDG #5)
The Pope continued with a nod to Jacques Maritain and his integral humanism, urging other religious leaders to promote disarmament as a means to “integral human development.” He then compared the Good Samaritan to protesters outraged by the death of the George Floyd, saying:
“It is clear that this type of reaction against social, racial or macho injustice can be manipulated or exploited by political machinations or whatever, but the main thing is that, in that protest against this death, there was the Collective Samaritan who is no fool! This movement did not pass by on the other side of the road when it saw the injury to human dignity caused by an abuse of power.“
For consistency’s sake, it would have been helpful to his fellow Catholics had the Pope also decried the global pattern of violence being perpetrated by police against unarmed citizens. Those workers who protest against draconian lockdown measure and vaccine mandates also have the right to employment instead of being shut out of their workplaces by the economic elites with whom Francis enjoys unending “closeness” and “dialogue.”
But then, why should consistency be expected from a man who blasphemously promotes, “in the name of God”, the UN’s radically antichristian agenda?
