The Declining Power of the Catholic Church in the World

The Declining of the Power of the Catholic Church

The overall effect of the Revolution in the Catholic Church beginning with Vatican Council II and culminating in the recent Synod on the Family of the Catholic Bishops, (see my previous posting, ), is the authoritative moral power of the Church, that is, the Mystical Body of Christ on Earth is diminishing and doing so rapidly.

During the Pontiff’s recent and much ballyhooed visit to the United States there was little mention of the Catholic Faith, no mention of Our Lord Jesus Christ or His Social Reign, but much attention was focused on the refreshingly warm and fuzzy popular pope, who took up the crusade for social acceptance of Sodomy and for the rights of Gaia, that is the anthropomorphic image of the goddess of the earth. Certainly, for the Vicar of Christ there was little resemblance to the King of Kings, Jesus Christ; instead he, Pope Francis I, was here to promulgate the Gospel of Green, with all its earth-worshiping aspects. Clearly, his priorities were not on supernatural aspects of the True Faith of Christ, but on the temporal and passing fads of the world and the green banner of the New World Order.

The effect is to reduce the power of the Church to just another inaudible clatter in the cacophony of the endless opinions on the state of the world and universe instead the clear, decisive, and authoritative voice of the sole authority of God on earth. The Church, thanks to him and his immediate predecessors, has become part of the white noise lulling the masses into a drug-like induced stupor and haze; this at a crucial time when clear and decisive direction from the Catholic Church is needed more than ever in the history of man.

solar_pope_francisTo illustrate just how low the prestige and influence of the Catholic Church has sunk, a Crunchy-con company called Real Goods, is featuring a solar activated 7 & ½ “ statue of Pope Francis I, that seemingly blesses the owner for using a socially responsible sense in buying renewable energy products. Truly the Catholic Faith has become a mockery and laughing stock of the secular world.

Below find the link to the Real Goods Giffen-good . Meantime, here is the catalog’s description of the scandalous item:

Fresh off his recent encyclical compelling people to do more to combat man-made climate change, Pope Francis is powered by solar energy. The benevolent pontiff will wave his blessings from your bookshelf, window, or dashboard. Whenever a beam of light touches him, he’ll reassure you with a wave that everything is going to be okay (though you are not excused from your moral obligation to reduce your carbon footprint).

When going to the webpage be sure to view the video below the description as it puts in perspective the salacious disdain of the Pope’s Holy Office and the Catholic Church. Clearly, in the modern world nothing remains sacred!

Here is the web citation:

Needless to say, in view of the foregoing we must continue to recite the Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary for the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart… time is running out.

    We love your blog! It was found yesterday somehow through a link from a fruit collectors association. I noticed it has been a while since you posted an article and I wondered if your health is OK? I was going to ignore the impulse to inquire regarding your health, however I was prompted again this morning as I said my prayers. My husband had melenoma and I served internships with a few prominent cancer treatment organizations, so I can empathize with your challenge.
    Be well. God bless you in your work.

    • Rose,

      Many thanks for your concern and prayers. I firmly believe in the power of prayer. I’m happy to report that so far there have been no complications or spread of the melanoma, Deo Gratius! It has been a busy fall and winter for me within our parish structure and that is the reason for my not posting as much as in the past. I hope to begin posting regularly in the near future.

      Meantime you mentioned that your husband had melanoma… I hope the outcome was similar to mine. Was it?

      Again, many thanks for concern and prayers

      Richard of Danbury
