One More Reason I Can't Take Bishop Barron Seriously!

St. John Fisher vigorously fought Luther. He
knew the man was no "mystic of grace."
Bishop Hails Martin Luther as “Mystic of Grace”


That's not what historian Michael Davies says. Below is the second part of a lecture series on the great English bishop and martyr, St. John Fisher. Fisher's response to Martin Luther, his heretical contemporary who did so much damage to the Church, shows exactly how arrogant and proud Luther was. How many souls are in hell because of Martin Luther? We'll find out on Judgment Day.

Historians are more credible when they use primary sources. St. John Fisher wrote four books addressing Luther and his heresy.
Fisher wrote that "I found scattered throughout [Luther'  books] so much of that poison by which innumerable simple souls, day by day, are destroyed. Yet of all that I have seen none is more pestilential, senseless or shameless than the one he entitles The Abrogation of the Mass, for in it he tries utterly to destroy the sacrifice of the body and blood of Christ, which the Church has ever held to be most slutary, and the chief object of devotion to all the faithful of Christ, which the Church has ever held to be most salutary, and the chief object of devotion to all the faithful of Christ." 

Fisher also describes Martin Luther's denial and vicious attack on the validity of the priesthood. This "mystic of grace" would deny the very validity of Bishop Barron's orders not to mention the pope whom he called the Anti-Christ. 

May Bishop St. John Fisher intercede for
Bishop Robert Barron.
Bishop Barron seems like a nice guy. I saw his video on Chesterton at the National Chesterton Conference last summer. He spoke by video to the group. We were all delighted to hear from a fellow Chestertonian. But somehow, I doubt Bishop Barron has read John Fisher's works on Luther. I'm currently reading Fisher's The Defence of the Priesthood. It's devastating to Luther and his beliefs and writings. He was certainly no "mystic of grace!" Bishop Barron obviously needs to read St. John Fisher and Michael Davies' videos as well. 

I'm starting with Davies' second video which describes the state of the Church at the time and Fisher's debate with Luther's positions. But watch all the videos to get the full picture. And I heartily recommend St. John Fisher's writings on Luther. St. John Fisher was Superman to Luther's Joker. Too bad the evil clown is being so praised today by clergymen who should know better.

“Christ committed adultery first of all with the women at the well about whom St John tell’s us. Was not everybody about Him saying: ‘Whatever has He been doing with her?’ Secondly, with Mary Magdalen, and thirdly with the women taken in adultery whom He dismissed so lightly. Thus even, Christ who was so righteous, must have been guilty of fornication before He died.” (Tischreden, Weimarer Edition, Vol. 2, p. 107).

“I have greater confidence in my wife and my pupils than I have in Christ” (Tischreden, 2397b).

“It is not in opposition to the Holy Scriptures for a man to have several wives.” (De Wette, Vol. 2, p. 459).

yeah.....that's got the Holy Spirit written ALL over it.

The praise comes from Pope Bergolglio himself.
Bp Barron is yet another product of bad priestly formation. He is aligning himself with the Francis cabal with a red zuchetto in mind...

Thank you SO much for pointing this out!

Luther was obsessed with feces and visions of the Devil all his life. He was, imho, a victim of some mental disorder or outright Satanic obsession.
