+Scicluna spikes seminarians’ terror

scicluna

The Archbishop of Malta told his seminarians to leave the seminary if they disagree with his own wild interpretation of chapter 8 of Amoris laetitia, which Pope Francis describes instead as a mere contribution to dialogue that has nothing to do with any magisterial intervention. To viciously smash down Jesus’ vocations based on a diverse contribution to dialogue is… well… let’s just say I wouldn’t want that on me going to the judgment before Jesus who called those young men to be His priests. All this while the priests of Malta are being bullied without mercy. Here.

To those seminarians in Malta I say: Just be faithful. Always in everything. This is about respect for Jesus. You are called to be faithful to Him before you are called to be priests by Him. If Jesus wants you to be a priest, He will make it happen. But you be faithful. Those kicking Jesus in the face think they have power because they are not yet killed by the holy angels of the Most High while they continue to kick Jesus in the face. But don’t agree with them. They have no power. Jesus took on the worst onslaught of hell when all His apostles ran away from Calvary. Stay with Jesus. Don’t compromise, ever. The Love Who is Living Truth is the Way. Don’t be afraid. No terror allowed! Rejoice and be glad. Read the beatitudes… to each other… support each other…

To +Charles: This is your moment, friend. That’s all you get. Happy?

    I agree with your criticism on Scicluna, but this is also a criticism on the Most Holy Father. I don’t think it corresponds to the facts to claim that Scicluna is in contradiction to Amoris Laetitia or to Pope Francis’ intention.

    I’m emphasizing the draconian lack of dialog. So far, Pope Francis has not told Seminarians to take a hike.

    no, he’s just removed people from congregations, papal institutes, the Apostolic Signatura, etc.

    Fr, Byers, does it seem like Amoris laetitia is somewhat like a Sawyers extractor?

  5. Father George David Byers

    Very subtle!
