What the ‘c’atholic Left is up to on Twitter

Like the world, the flesh and devil, the catholic Left never sleeps. They are fierce users of social media. What are they up to today?

Here’s something from relentless self-promoter and catty provocateur, Beans. I’m blocked by Beans, btw.

This is simple nastiness.   Did Beans ever receive a formal mandatum to teach in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia?

A while back Francis gave a reliquary with bones of St. Peter to the Patriarch of Constantinople. Look how this Jesuit member of the New catholic Red Guard interprets the move. I’m blocked by Spadaro, btw. However, everyone can still access the site he personally runs in honor of infamous Italian homosexual writer Pier Vittorio Tondelli.

Did you get that? “Unfettered DISINVESTMENT” … “SYMBOLIC authority”. What the “its” refers to is puzzling, but I think we know what he is driving at.

And what about Jesuit homosexualist James Martin? I think I know the answer: “Render unto Caesar….”, or in other words, “Obey the law.”

We have to be aware of what these corrosive voices incessantly promote.

    This morning between the Rosary and Mass I thought, what if we began public prayers for these men and others who are marring the beauty of the Church with their heterodox teachings? Did Jesus say that some demons will only leave by prayer?

    [Thank you.]

    So you are not blocked by Fr Martin?! I am. It happened after I quoted him 1 Cor 6:9

    Re Beans: I suppose it would be expected the parasite infesting the body would concern itself with the potential remedy.
    Re Spadaro: He knows full well how that affected faithful Catholics, and here he is flouting it in our faces and adding a new twist for pleasure. Sadistic little worm.
    Re James Martin: The Holy Family returned to their homeland. They didn’t stay in Egypt.

  4. acardnal: I am not blocked by him. If I remember correctly I was for a while, but was later unblocked.

    Card. Burke said a couple of years ago that SSPX is schismatic (I am a SSPX attendee by the way) so joke is on Faggioli.

  6. JamesA says:

    fmsb78, I seriously doubt Cardinal Burke said any such thing, mainly because the Society is not, as you should know if you attend.

    Quote, please.

  7. Dan says:

    JamesA I can’t, or don’t have the energy, to produce the quote now but I do recall reading that once. It surprised me.

    Of course it is quite clear now they are not, and I believe they are far more in communion with the Catholic faith than the likes of those sited above.

    Whenever I have a question about a liturgical action or Catholic teaching I always take into account what the SSPX says on the subject. They do not subject themselves to the plethora of options that currently plague our faith. If they teach it. Chances are it is true and sound.

    As I understand it, Dr. Faggioli does not require a “mandatum,” because he is an actual (not institutional) theologian.

  9. JonathanTX says:

    I don’t know anything about building websites, or I would do it myself; but perhaps someone could make a website which would tally pledges for a prayer bouquet for the intention of the conversion of Fr. Martin et al. I remember Pope Francis mocked us for such things, but I think it’s important for them to understand even subconsciously how many people are praying for them. It’s also good for us to see how many people are praying, to encourage and motivate us to pray even more.

    Yes the Left are ferocious users of social media, heck I suspect they even own 9started) some of those big diverse SM tech companies. Regarding the last one, the “rounding up #migrant families.” Is any one really “rounding up #migrant families ?” I think some are trying to have a rational discussion on immigration, and others are socially attacking them as haters. I did see an Italian boat rescuing people at sea when their overcrowded #migrant boat sank. Is that what is meant by “rounding up #migrant families ?”

    Well now, the Troika of Spadaro, Beans, and Martin have set the 2019 Production Quota for Glorious People’s Church. No doubt the Comrades in the Sauna are well pleased.

    Meanwhile, Fr. Cusick requested on Twitter that people behave themselves and was greeted by a phalanx of digital switchblades flicking open.

    An interesting time in the vineyards of the Lord.

    p.s. It’s anyone’s guess who will win the 2019 Most Ridiculous Award: men’s ‘c’atholic Twitter, women’s ‘p’rofessional soccer, or ‘d’emocrat presidential candidates. Though, Marianne “Course of Miracles” Williamson is providing quality entertainment.

  12. But wait! There’s more from the homosexualist.

    The Jesuit wants to use the Emmaus account, despondent disciples coming to recognize the Lord “in the breaking of the bread” – a Eucharistic theme – as… what? Recognizing … what? Admitting… what? Does this strike you as blasphemous?

    And here’s the Jesuit lauding congregationalism.

  13. Semper Gumby says:

    We might have reached Peak ‘c’atholic Left. The Road to Emmaus is apparently about the Marginalized Walking Together. Fr. Martin is indistinguishable from Susan from the Parish Council. One wonders how to tell them apart when they share a Liturgy Space.

    Speaking of “phalanx”, and in the spirit of today’s Coast Guard post, enjoy a Phalanx CIWS (“see-wiz”, also known as the R2D2) having a little target practice on remote-controlled small boats and drones.

    Isn’t he teaching at Villanova? If so, the mandatum is applicable.

  15. Athelstan says:

    He’s not a theologian. He’s a Church historian, and his degree is in history. A mandatum applies to theology instructors.

    Not that this doesn’t raise questions about one or more actual theology professors at Villanova…

  16. Johann says:

    For a professor Beans Faggioli has a remarkably poor grasp of Catholic theology. He made a comment a couple of months ago that Traditional Catholics can “have the traditional liturgy but not the traditional doctrine”, only Canonist Father Pius Pietrzyk OP to then point out to him that the theory of the so called “the Bologna school” that Vatican II represented a change in doctrine was specifically rejected by the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith in 2008, and that by holding to this view Beans was in effect no different than Sedevacantists.
