Eventually, even I reach a breaking point, and deletions need to be done. One can only push for so long before one pushes back.

Dear the 70's, please, please, please take your theology, logos and other ideas back, and don't return them...Thank you.

Thought of the day

It's a good thing our faith is NOT based on consolations, if so, perhaps it should be re-considered. Feelings come and go, and sometimes those feelings have very questionable motives.

Questions received on facebook...or rather, public corrections hat I'm much oo lazy o do.

It's my typical philosophy, to let people dig themselves in their own grave and provide them the shovel instead of wasting time engaging in intellectual debates when people are not open to hearing your side of the argument. Why waste effort when no one's willing to listen right? But eventually, one needs to put the lid on the coffin...so here we go.

a. Pope Francis IS the Pope, yes, even if I'm not a fan of him

There are some thoughts here, and here on the topic

The fancy wording is in the articles above...I'll simplify it.

a. No person on earth has the right to judge the Pope
b. Sin is internal, not external, actions are external, intentions are internal
c. A bishop or Pope must be warned, they need to know what they're doing is wrong (by he competent authority)
d. A Pope does lose office when he becomes a manifest heretic, the Church (justice) would declare the Pope has lost his office. (Public office would require the faithful to know)
e. No, the sedevacantist position is not logical and can't be defended.

b. The NO is not Catholic..

Unfortunately, there are some that do not understand the theological diversity within the Church. The existence of the various missals in the Church do not make one less Catholic than the other. There are various theologies expressed in the various Liturgies in the Church. There is no theological supremacy of the Roman Rite to any of the others. The NO is a mixture of various theologies (Roman, Byzantine, Protestant) without a real focus, but that does NOT make the NO heretical or a danger to the Faith.

c. Unrelated to a & b

I do ask for prayers. There will be major things happening in September...

The capacity to love is inversely proportional to the times we have been broken.

Thought of the day

The Saints, were not perfect by any stretch of the imagination. The saints show us how to cooperate with the graces that we're given to overcome our imperfections. Goodie too shoes saints are no where near as fun as the saints that have struggled....To know that some had anger issues, and others were extremely stubborn, is comforting. Rejoice
