EXCLUSIVE: Speakers at Vatican-run youth meeting call for women’s ordination, LGBT inclusion
VATICAN CITY, July 19, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – A Vatican-sponsored meeting for young Catholics in Rome in June featured speakers[Chosen ahead of time because of their views. This wasn’t an accident.] who called for “deaconesses,” the administration of sacraments by women, “revolution”, “LGBT” inclusion, and “structural change.”
Young Catholics at the event loudly applauded when such calls were made while calls for missionary discipleship were met with little enthusiasm. [Of course they applauded. Young people will generally applaud that they think will get them attention by annoying older people.]
The International Youth Forum, consisting of almost 250 young people from around the world, gathered between June 19 and 22 to discuss Pope Francis’ post-conciliar exhortation “Christus Vivit.” The pontiff published the document on April 2, 2019 following the October 2018 Synod of Bishops on Young People, the Faith, and Vocational Discernment. Some of the young people at the June Forum were auditors at the October Synod. The event was organized by the Dicastery for the Laity, Family and Life.
The general theme of the Forum was: “Young people in action in a synodal [“walking together”] Church.” [See what they are doing?]
LifeSiteNews spoke to two participants, a young man and a young woman, on the condition of anonymity, not only for their sake, but for the sake of their sponsoring bishops. The first Forum participant told LifeSiteNews of feeling uneasy as a progressive agenda was put forward by numerous speakers while participants cheered.
“The reaction to different open-floor comments and speakers quickly developed a pattern of being loud and supportive of those demanding structural change and diversity, ‘revolution’ or greater support for social issues such as the environment and [then maintaining] an almost deafening silence for those talking about evangelizing our cultures with theology of the body, being missionary disciples united in Christ, or growing in personal holiness,” the young woman told LifeSiteNews. [Almost as if the organizers had planted cheerleaders in the group to give signals. It takes a while for the patterns to organize, but they do.]
LifeSiteNews’ known and trusted source was particularly troubled by the enthusiastic reception of Austrian theology student Eva Wimmer’s demand for women’s ordination.
“During the first panel we heard from a handful of youth synod auditors talking about their experience of the synod process. During this, there was a call that in ten years time it would be ‘normal for women to be deaconesses and administering the sacraments’,” the female source said. [Remember Antonio Gramsci? Saul Alinsky?]
Wimmer also said, according to the source, that she dreamed of a Church in which women do not merely catechize for baptism but baptize, and do not merely teach marriage preparation but perform marriages and indicated that she was for greater inclusion of “LGBT” people in the Church. [The exaltation of sterile sexual selfish self-gratification. She’s the Synod’s perfect young spokesdupe.]
LifeSiteNews has reached out to Wimmer by email for comment, but she did not respond.
John Paul II declared in his 1994 Apostolic Letter Ordinatio Sacerdotalis that “the Church has no authority whatsoever to confer priestly ordination on women.” He added that this “judgment is to be definitively held by all the Church’s faithful.”
‘Few seemed Christ-centered’
Meanwhile, such topics as holiness and conversion largely fell by the wayside.
“While important issues such as migration, climate change and youth suicide were frequently mentioned, we seemed to be missing the crucial point – holiness, our evangelistic mission inherent of our baptism, and self-transformation – for only when we are united with Christ, can we heal families, heal our culture and ultimately bring us all back to the one true Catholic Church of God,” the source said.
The young people had been invited to discuss ways in which the ideas of “Christus Vivit” could be implemented in their home diocese to attract more young people to life in Christ. The source said that she sensed that many of her colleagues were not “Christ-centered.”
