When will these folks wake up?
Here’s the official definition according to Babe:
hal⋅lu⋅ci⋅na⋅tion [huh-loo-suh-ney-shuhn en min-e-apo-lis]
–noun — [hopefully without nuns]
1. a sensory experience of something that does not exist outside the mind [women priests], caused by various physical and mental disorders [see: bad spirits and intellectual wish-list philosophies inspired by renegade theologians], or by reaction to certain toxic substances [any potions conjured up that smell of the notion of obedience to Christ and His church], and usually manifested as visual or auditory images. [see (or hear): any call to action mass wherein puppets and liturgical dancers mystically appear… KAZAAM!!!]
In Prophetic Obedience to the Spirit…
Well, that’s the claim anyway over at the Wild Reed:
“Yesterday in Minneapolis, the Roman Catholic Womenpriests movement hosted its Sixth Midwest Region Ordination – an event that drew over 500 people to witness the ordination of one woman to the deaconate (sic), and three women to the priesthood of the Roman Catholic Church. (sic, again)”
This notion of prophetic obedience to the spirit (which, includes the Apostles and their successors the Bishops) is a sham. Recall that only a few days ago, while bemoaning Archbishop Nienstedt’s official warning on the Catholic Coalition for Church Reform, the same Mr. Bayly on the Progressive Catholic Voice said:
“The Archbishop has nothing to fear from us. We want to be in communion with him. But communion is not a juridical relationship, it is primarily a relationship of spirit. Real communication is necessary for communion.”
Which, begs this question:
If real communication is necessary for communion, and your ardent desire for union is authentic and true, why is it necessary to sideswipe your fellow brothers and sisters, including Bishops, with underground ordinations within our dioceses?”
Pitiful, Tragic, and Juvenile…
It appears that all the groups that make up the American Catholic Council, including its satellite, the Catholic Coalition for Church Reform, are circling the wagons for Custard’s Last Vatican II Stand. Perhaps, the USCCB will take this opportunity to act decisively and put an end to all this error by stating clearly the non-Catholic status of these groups as was done in St. Paul/Minneapolis. Why? Because it’s all pitiful, tragic, and juvenile…
(A personal observation)
Yes, pitiful, in that Christ has given you the sublime gift of eternal salvation and life (if you remain in Him and He in you) through the gift’s of the Holy Spirit within His Church, yet, by this ‘false spirit of pride’ you continue to thwart and grieve the Holy Spirit of God and the good works He began within you as a child born through baptism; tragic, in that the unsuspecting will, or may, be led away from the same and only gate of salvation, turning instead, towards the gates of hell, which, are wide and many and filled with similar such souls who fell through error into the same moral and spiritual ills the American Catholic Council proposes to Christians; and finally, juvenile, in that this false ‘spirit of Vatican II’ is stunting the growth of the Church and her proclamation of the Gospel–so necessary for the salvation of souls–by proclaiming a false Christ and false Church under pretext of the Holy Spirit.
Here’s my ode of hope for all those fast asleep within bygone era’s, followed by a warning to the Body of Christ within the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis….
WHAT YOU CAN DO DEFEND YOUR FAITH AND PROTECT THE FAITH OF OTHERS FROM SUCH ERROR WITHIN YOUR DIOCESE
1. Don’t participate. Warn your family, friends, and fellow Catholics of the spiritual danger(s) involved in falling for propaganda (errors)coming from representatives of either the Catholic Coalition for Church Reform or the American Catholic Council within your diocese. Especially, be on watch for advertisements that promote “Synods of the Baptized” or invitations to meetings found within parish bulletins describing “Catholics coming together to dialogue on difficult Church issues…” This smokescreen tactic was used recently within a bulletin at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church in Minneapolis.
2. Contact your pastor in person or by e-mail and (respectfully) inform him about the dangers CCCR and the American Catholic Council represent within the Archdiocese.
3. Contact your bishop in person or by e-mail and (respectfully) inform him of the same.
4. Pray for all those suffering from a spirit of constantly taking umbrage: with Church, Church doctrine, and defiance of divinely instituted authority–
