Today in the reading for St. Venerable Bede, we heard from St. Paul to Timothy:
For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own likings, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander into myths.
Fr. James Martin, homosexualist and Jesuit, Oooos and Ahhhs over a book by Card. Zuppi which claims that no one chooses their orientation. And yet it remains that people DO have choices.
Bravo! Cardinal Matteo Zuppi, in new book, on LGBT people: “When communities will truly begin to look at people as God looks at them, then homosexual people–and everybody else–will begin to feel, naturally, a part of the ecclesial community,” https://t.co/GhzV1HM6ql

This is Zuppi’s third work on a book promoting homosexuality. I’m sensing a pattern.
Then the same Jesuit homosexualist was aflutter about a new book exploring the possibility of blessing same-sex unions commissioned by the Archdiocese of Salzburg.
The Archdiocese of Salzburg has commissioned the publication of a new book exploring the possibility of blessing same-sex unions: “The Benediction of Same Sex Partnerships”: https://t.co/lI8FGiN2Lh

Down down down into the rabbit hole of myths.
Also, Card. Marx stated that women’s ordination is off the table for now. Coincidentally, according to CNA in the Archdiocese of Munich and Freising last year, 10,744 Catholics formally withdrew from the Church in 2019. It noted that this was a fifth higher than in 2018, when 8,995 people left.
Today I stumble across this. Take in the jargon, the scrambled thought, the sheer unhinged fantasy of this verbiage. This is how the liberal left in the Church think.
Here is the extract:
” I Name Myself in Power ” : The Roman Catholic Womenpriests and the Performance of Relational Authority
by Claire Maria Chambers (Performance Studies, Liturgy, Feminist Theology, Gender and religion (Women s Studies)) My emphases and comments.
By focusing on the liturgies and spiritual narratives of the Roman Catholic Womenpriests, this article explores the performance of the authority of women [cf. 1 Corinthians 14:33-35] in ways that challenge institutional hierarchy and affirm inclusivity and equality, but still maintain forms of power. The Womenpriests are a radical reform movement internal [lie] to the Roman Catholic Church committed to a progressive politics of inclusion. They challenge normative power relations by practising ritual ordination of women priests in the full line of apostolic succession [lie]. Their performance of priesthood names the individual and the community as sources of power in a manner that creates what the author calls “relational authority.” [This takes the dreadful errors of Schillebeeckx way beyond crazy.] Relational authority regards dwelling with others and the recognition of inherent, human worth as sources of meaning that are creative and co-creative. [?!? What does that even mean?] This concept responds to existing theories that consider the social dimension of participation, rather than the individual viewer or actor, in collaborative performance. The article reflects on the relationship between performance theory and the theological dimensions of Christic representation and interrogates feminist theology for new forms of performative signification. The performance of priesthood by women in the Roman Catholic Church is [an illusion] an interstice of new possibilities for the exchange of authority and power, and an example of performance that, by means of “dwelling with,” opens new paradigms for performance theory beyond [beyooooond!] being, doing, and its permutations through showing and explaining. Rather than authority stemming from being and doing, the Womenpriests demonstrate authority that issues from knowing (wisdom) and relating.
What a load of B as in B, S as in S.
This is what goes on inside the heads of proponents of the ordination of women, including to the diaconate.
“I name myself in power”
I’m reminded of Zuhlio’s song, Lady Tambourine Priest
Then take me disappearin’ through your schism and dissent,
We’ve cast off all pretense, we finally have a voice,
In Catholics for Free Choice, who cares what bishops teach,
We’re far beyond the reach of Christ’s own Vicar,
Yes we dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free,
Goodbye to sanity, in our labyrinths of pride,
“Non serviam!” we’ve cried, all gender roles have died,
We’ve forgotten our Creator and humility.
The Official Parodohymnodist hit it on the head.
Pray, friends. It’s CRAZY out there!
Pray and work for the restoration of sanity in the Church through a liturgical renewal centered especially the reclamation of the Traditional Latin Mass.
