AVOID LIBERAL CATHOLICISM

AVOID LIBERAL CATHOLICISM

.
The majority of Catholics under the age of 50, who are nowadays referred to as 'the Lost Generation', are unaware of what has happened to the Catholic Church in England & Wales over the past 60 years. The tradition, reverence, & theology of the Catholic Church have been so erroneously distorted, santitised, and dumbed down by liberal clergy and laity that many Catholics no longer understand the ultimate truths of Christ, which are only contained within the One True Church.  




The following article shows how liberal Catholics have tried to dismantle your Church by usurping the guidance of the Catholic Church by the Holy Spirit, and by willfully and erroneously misinterpreting Vatican II. It shows how they brought about an internal protestantising reformation which has sterilised the Catholic faith.........

THE BAD NEWS

THE HERESY OF LIBERAL CATHOLICISM
.
HOW DID IT ALL START?
A SECOND PROTESTANT REFORMATION
(BUT THIS TIME INTERNAL)


The Vatican II Council

William Oddie recently authored an article in The Times regarding Vatican II (13/10/2012). In that article he highlighted that Hans Kung & Edward Schillebeeckx (theological advisors during VII) were overheard stating that they would work for a second protestant reformation: "but this time we won't leave". Internal protestantisers had started smashing Catholic iconography in Belgium as early as the mid 1950's and the liberals finally instigated their Trojan horse by successfully distorting the real meaning of Vatican II at great and continuing detriment to the Church. 

These falsehoods were finally set in action in England & Wales during the 1980 National Pastoral Congress where the liberal laity eventually ended up having a stronger voice than the clergy.  Most Catholics are nowadays unaware that these events happened because the falsehoods have become the norm.

These events, the negative consequences of which are often referred to as the 'Spirit of Vatican II' or as 'the Hermeneutic of Discontinuity' with the past (in relation to liturgy, catechesis, and the laity's path to sainthood), are now being referred to as 
The Great Apostasy.





WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES OF LIBERAL CATHOLICISM?
.

What did the future Pope Benedict mean? 

On the ground in Catholic Churches after Vatican II liberal clergy and laity ignored the documents whilst ELEVATING a false vision of them as a means to modernise the Church, at the expense of all the previous Church councils. In doing so, they incorrectly interpreted the decrees of Vatican II by discarding crucial past teachings and the traditions of the Church. Vatican II in fact championed the 'Call to Holiness' and continuity with sacred teaching and sacred liturgy. Liberals erroneously brought about a 'hermeneutic of discontinuity' (a rupture with the past) i.e. the wrong way of interpreting sacred scripture. This is why few Catholics nowadays understand that EVERY aspect of Catholicism is present to draw them towards Christ so that sainthood, as well as salvation, might be attained. 




However, these errors were further magnified when the laity were then given more latitude by the damaging 'liberal controlled' National Pastoral Congresses (click here) which ultimately set in place nationwide false interpretations of Vatican II. These 'interpretations' ultimately turned out not to resemble Vatican II, for the most part, in any way, shape, or form. 

Many Catholics, including those on parish and pastoral councils, instead of adhering to Vatican II set out their own false vision despite the fact that the vast majority of these Catholics have never read Vatican II. Liberal laity have since proselytised their falsehoods onto younger members of congregations and continue to subject fellow Catholics to 'best guess', 'winging it', and 'own personal belief' relativistic theology.


THE PRIMACY OF CONSCIENCE

A FUNNY, BUT THEOLOGICALLY ACCURATE VIDEO ON HOW LIBERAL CATHOLICS MADE OTHERS FALSELY BELIEVE THAT "YOU DON'T NEED TO WORRY ABOUT CHURCH TEACHING, YOU CAN JUST FOLLOW YOUR OWN CONSCIENCE".



IN OTHER WORDS....

LIBERAL CATHOLICS DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE THEOLOGY BEHIND THE PRIMACY OF CONSCIENCE & INFALLIBLE CONSCIENCE. THIS IS WHY THEY LEAD THEMSELVES INTO THEOLOGICAL ERROR AND THEN PROSELYTISE THEIR FALSE MESSAGE 
ONTO OTHERS.



A theologically 

incorrect understanding of 

the primacy of conscience has lead to

liberal Catholics believing in 

'personal interpretation' 

which is not only a mortal sin, 

because it is an offence against faith,

 but it is recognised 

as a heresy.

ACTUALLY READ VATICAN II BECAUSE IT IS NOT FULL OF LIBERAL FALSEHOODS THAT LIBERAL CATHOLICS WOULD HAVE YOU BELIEVE!

The vast majority of liberal Catholics have never seen a copy of Vatican II and do not know what it actually states. Despite this they still champion it whilst being ignorant of the real meaning of Vatican II's 'Call to holiness', the true meaning of Catholic ecumenism, sacred scripture, divine revelation, and the authentic nature of 'the sacred liturgy'.  This is the primary reason why Pope Benedict stressed that Catholics should revisit Vatican II and actually read the Catechism during the Year of Faith.

Below is just one example where liberal Catholics
have strayed into error in ecumenism. Few Catholics know that Vatican II states the following...

click to enlarge. 

Vatican II actually states that Catholics should use good theology, apologetics, and common sense to guide protestants back to the one true faith.

It is not about 'befriending them' as many liberals regularly try and pass ecumenism off.



All of the previous issues are reasons why many churches are impotent at bringing new people into the church, fail to engage in evangelisation, & ultimately fail in striving to save souls. This is what happens when they engage in 'best guess', 'winging it' & relativistic theology and ignore the theology and teachings contained within the Magisterium of the Catholic Church. They end up breaking away from the ultimate truths of Christ and His Catholic Church and engage in an 'hermeneutic of rupture'. 


In other words, 
liberal Catholics have 
PROSELYTISED 
a false version of the 
Catholic Faith on to those 
less catechised.




The tenets of liberal Catholicism enshrine Christian mediocrity. It involves a sterilising INTERNAL protestantisation of the faith which turns its back on the true nature of the catholic church. This is the reason why:

1. ......liberal Catholics scoff when you mention Catholic traditions and devotions.
2. Why the 'Call to Holiness' in Vatican II is ignored in your church and why there is disdain for the Pope by liberals.
3. Why sacredness & reverence are often not present within Catholic churches.

4. Why liberal Catholics perpetuate the false myth that Vatican II stated that "it is no longer necessary to attend regular confession ". This goes hand in hand with the false liberal doctrines of "as long as I am a nice person I will get to heaven" and "God will forgive me no matter what".  None of these beliefs are true and never changed at Vatican II. They are not scriptural and do not make up any part of church teaching.



5. Why certain Catholics publicly deny the ultimate truths of Christ and His Holy Church and then proselytise their false belief system on to those less catechised. 

6. Why liberal Catholics, who often control parish councils, do not follow the guidance of Vatican II and are apathetic in witnessing to Christ, fail to deal with lapsation, are not pro-active in bringing those in the community into the church, and fail to provide genuine catechesis to those who wish to receive it. Liberal Catholics on parish and pastoral councils are particularly guilty of this error. Pope Benedict XVI has the following message for them: 


7. Why liberal Catholics do not want to use the term One True Church.
8. Why they place false ecumenism above the needs of the Catholic Church.

9. Why liberal Catholics have elevated anti-Catholic, left wing, socio-political agendas, and political correctness at the expense of scripture & Church teaching. 


.
10.  Why liberals scoff at other Catholics when they wish to kneel for communion or mention the Traditional Latin Rite and why there are so few individual Church pilgrimages to our Catholic Shrines any more.





The basis of liberal Catholicism is described as:

'Pan-doctrinal Catholicism'.

translated as

"anything goes despite what the Gospel might say"





POPE BENEDICT XVI REPEATED MANY TIMES HIS WARNING CONCERNING WHAT HE TERMED THE 'DICTATORSHIP OF RELAVITISM' 
WHICH IS PRESENT ON THE INSIDE OF THE CHURCH, AND NOT JUST ON THE OUTSIDE. 

POPE FRANCIS CONTINUES TO CLEARLY STATE
THIS MESSAGE.


The atheist Penn Jillette accurately explains why liberal Catholicism is wrong on Piers Morgan Tonight!


LIBERAL CATHOLICISM ENSHRINES THE 
HERESIES OF:
(Click each for definitions)



These heresies underpin liberal Catholicism, but what is not understood is that they also underpin the theology of Protestant, non-conformist and free churches. This is the fundamental reason why other denominations differ from the Catholic Church. Not only do these belief systems get in the way of other denominations acknowledging the primacy of the Catholic Church, but they are also the reason why liberal Catholics, and people from other denominations, no longer attend any form of regular confession. This has major implications for salvation.........




This statement demonstrates how we got to the point where few people regularly attend confession. Liberals took the heresy of pelagianism and moral relativism and made Catholics believe that 'God will forgive me no matter what', which is neither scriptural or in the teachings of the Catholic Church. Beyond this Vatican II never said that regular confession was no longer necessary, but many liberal Catholics will in fact state that regular confession is no longer required. 
Which is a lie.

His Holiness Pope Benedict, speaking as Cardinal Ratzinger in 2003 stated the following regarding Catholics (not just non-Catholics).......



The consequence of this is now referred to as 

'The Lost Generation

i.e. the generation which is no longer in receipt of the FULL knowledge of salvation history which is revealed, not only in scripture, but within the teachings of the Catholic Church. This is also the reason why Pope John Paul II and 
Pope Benedict XVI championed 

THE NEW EVANGELISATION, 
THE YEAR OF FAITH, 
THE CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH 
&
YOUCAT 

......so that the faithful could once again become well catechised and once again become well versed in the Catholic Church and the Mystery of Faith.

In fairness to the liberal clergy and laity (both then and now) they followed their dead end path because they believed that by making the Church 'look and feel like the secular world' they would bring people into the church. 


THEY CATASTROPHICALLY FAILED BECAUSE THOSE WHO LOOK FOR THE TRUTHS OF CHRIST WANT SOMETHING THAT IS SET APART FROM THE SECULAR WORLD. IN EFFECT THEY ARE IN SEARCH OF THE SACRED & SPIRITUAL WHICH THE LIBERALS TRIED TO DESTROY.




IF WE LOOK AT THE EXAMPLES OF YOUTH 2000, JUVENTUTEM, & THE FAITH MOVEMENT, WHERE A SENSE OF THE SACRED HAS BEEN RESTORED, AND WHERE YOUNG CATHOLICS ARE FINALLY BEING EXPOSED TO THE AUTHENTIC TRUTHS OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH, WE ARE SLOWLY SEEING SOME OF THESE YOUNG PEOPLE NOW TAKING THEIR FAITH MORE SERIOUSLY. WHY? BECAUSE EVERY ASPECT OF CATHOLICISM (THE SACRED & THE TEACHING) IS NOW BEGINNING TO BE EXPLAINED 
CORRECTLY TO THEM.

& FINALLY!

HOW DOES LIBERAL 
CATHOLICISM WORK?

It is imperative to understand the difference between the infallible nature of those teachings which are proclaimed ex Cathedra, and the perfect nature of the rest of the Church's teachings which, although not pronounced ex cathedra, are still never in error.

In the Catholic Church infalliable teachings are proclaimed ex cathedra and can never be changed, even by a pope. However, at the same time the rest of the teachings of the Magisterium of the Church are still error free, but they can be technically changed in the future. Liberals make those who are less catechised believe that the teachings (that are not pronounced ex cathedra) are in some way inferior, are not perfect, that they are in error, or that they can easily be changed. None of these things that they would have you believe are true.




The reason why the rest of the teachings of the Catholic Church are never in error is because they are continually guided by the Holy Spirit who cannot err or contradict Himself. This means that at every present moment those teachings are always perfect and error free. However, these teaching can be changed in the future when or if they are guided by the renewal of the Holy Spirit.

Liberal dissenters take their own agendas and seek man-made reform to these teachings by usurping the renewal of the church by the Holy Spirit, so that they can thrust their own agendas upon the Magisterium of the Church.

i.e. liberal Catholics who call for public dissent, and change to church teaching, are only interested in man-made reform and aim to 
side step the Holy Spirit.


LIBERAL CATHOLICISM IS THE LATEST HERESY THAT THE CATHOLIC CHURCH MUST PASS THROUGH. THE CHURCH HAS COME THROUGH OTHER HERESIES IN THE PAST 2000 YEARS AND THIS ONE WILL BE NO DIFFERENT.

  1. Dear Brother or Sister in Christ,

    I pray you will continue to spread orthodoxy at this time where it's needed the most. It is so painful to watch the relativistic thinking coming from supposed fellow 'Catholics'.

  2. You have very persuasive postmodernist images here but you ignore all the ones where our post-conciliar popes relativise the faith themselves. Visits to mosques; Hindu & Buddhist temples; protestant temples; kissing qurans; appearing in public with female priestesses of Methodism, Anglicanism, Lutheranism etc. The theatrical proclamation of forgiveness of the church's past sins by JP II which was symbolically nonsensical and a gratuitous thespian display of personalism. {Pope Paul VI fabricated a new liturgy, trying to abrogate the traditional Latin Mass allowing a masonic archbishop Bugnini (BUAN) to rewrite the time-honoured sacred liturgy of The Church which as led to the loss of over 32,000 priests; closures of hundreds+ churches and chapels, religious houses and congregations; seminaries become bastions of gay politics unchecked by seemingly disinterested papacies who never discipline errant bishops and priests but who have been indifferent towards the needs of Traditional Catholics and who hide behind political correctness on most moral issues affecting The Faith.

    Relativism is the consequence of post-conciliar ecumenism and interconfessionalism; pantheism of Teihhard de Chardin admired so much by Cardinal Ratzinger and the anthropological phenomenology of John Paul II the liberal modernist par excellence. When popes do as they please so do the laity and the clergy.

    It is the consequence of Pope Paul VI's abandonment of Sacred Liturgical Tradition allowing Satan's smoke into the sanctuary and auto-demolition of the church which he admitted to himself. It is the suicide of altering The Faith in the liturgy as Cardinal Pacelli prophesied in the late 1920s - the red lamp and the Tabernacles have disappeared from our churches alongside the Real Presence and the reverent devotions of the once well-instructed laity. It is even the church's own surveys that reveal new catholics are no longer knowledgeable about their Faith but believe all sorts of protestantised heresies.

    Who is responsible for this? the irresponsible papacies; the irresponsible bishops; the irresponsible prebyters; the protestantised laity. It is these who have turned the church into a circus of liberal modernist pastoral and liturgical chaos where tradition is despised and seen as no longer relevant. However, what is important is to cover-up scandals; cover up financial irregularities (Bishop Marcinkus & the Vatican Bank - episcopal financial misappropriation & corruption); cover up child sexual abuse by moder presbyters and their complicit bishops - Cardinal Law, Bernadin; Levada etc., etc. & then give them immunity to prosecution in order to hise the truth.

    the liberal moderist church is a phantom of the postmodernist secular media and a neutralised and compliant catholic media. yes, wonderful images on this site but they hide the realities demonstrated by the chief indicators of the Novus Ordo Church - severe reductions in vocations; massive decline in vocations to the religious life of monks and nuns; huge decline in Sunday attendances (80/90% in the 1950s down to 20% and even 4% in France and number of Masses available has been enormously cut; neglect of The Sacrament of Confession; no more Sacrament of Extreme Unction for the dying; increase in demonic activity according to the withering number of exorcists in the church who admit the new prayers are useless against the devil but only the traditional ones work but have been taken away. Also, the same popes have handed out Communion like appetisers into hands of the laity and have permitted clergy to free the laity to even help themselves and to touch the sacred vessels. The NO funerals assume all are saved and eulogise the demised.

    What a mess!Fr Paul Marx OSB (RIP) stated having visted and worked in 85 countries - "The Church is in chaos".

  3. All excellent points LeonG, of course all these where 'liberal' acts..........

    Did you know that Bugnini also tried to destroy the Rosary. At the same time he changed the Mass he also wanted the rosary to be cut down to just one 'our father' and I believe three 'Hail Mary's' on every decade. The pope put his foot down at this point and said that if he allowed this to happen then "he would be remembered as the pope who destroyed the rosary".
