How I want to believe we have a pope who is truly a man after God's own heart. How difficult the pope makes it for me to believe it. This latest Vatican meeting adds one more confusing (and toxic?) ingredient to the papal soup pot.
What a photo op for these ghouls of the left all of whom favor ripping babies limb from limb and call sodomy "marriage." But for the pope to label these death peddlers the "conscience of humanity!" It sets my head spinning and my heart aching.
Pope Francis throws out an occasional comment about the slaughter of the unborn, but expresses nothing like his concern over the disputed issue of "climate change" which used to be "global warming" until it became obvious that the planet is NOT warming. And his enthusiasm for the U.N., one of biggest threats to humanity on the planet by their promotion of population control, "reproductive rights," and questionable education policies.
Who are you, Pope Francis? The secular liberals who promote sodomite marriage and abortion love you. The Catholic dissenters love you. Mothers of big families, on the other hand, hear themselves compared to mindless rabbits. You compare a dying Europe to grandmothers like me. And those of us who have spent a lifetime fighting abortion and contraception basically hear, "Move on; there are other issues."
Today on St. Martha's feast day, I reflect on the work of my adult years trying to foster protection of human life from conception until true death, and I know that it pleases my Lord Jesus Christ who called Himself the Way, the Truth, and the Life. I'm not so sure how pleased he is with Vatican conferences that eulogize the U.N. and call enemies of life the "conscience of humanity."
Pray for the Holy Father and for poor Holy Mother Church and her flock of milling sheep searching for shepherds. We are living in morally dangerous times. Fast and pray that confusion in the Church will not scandalize and mislead many souls into choosing the wide and pleasant path to perdition.
