USCCB Caught Funding Cult of Death: "Catholic Campaign for Human Development" is Radical-Left Money Machine

James Austin

There has been absolutely no shortage of ridiculous, sad, and completely off the wall news coming out of the "Novus Ordo" world this week:

First up: Homosexualist Jesuit Priest, James Martin, began promoting a new "Yoga Ignatian" retreat at the Jesuit Center in Milford, Ohio. Because when the novelty of build your own liturgies wears out, it's time for DIY blended spirituality! Buddhism, splashed with a little paganism, and shaken up with modernist humanism is all the rage now. (See: John Vennari on the New Paganism.

Next on our agenda: Pope Francis said that people who Fear the Lord (a Gift of the Holy Ghost) have a "mistaken image of God." He continued, stating that if we fear God "our lives cannot be fruitful, because we will live in fear and this will not lead us to anything constructive." 

And last but not least: "Cultural Diversity in the Church" committee chair, Bishop Jaime Soto of Sacramento, called Deportation a "sin crying to Heaven for vengeance." Last time I checked, there are only 4 sins that cry to Heaven for vengeance, and deporting criminals & illegal aliens isn't one of them. This is of course an attempt at moralizing illegal immigration for the political ends of bringing in more Democrat Voters, and the economic ends of filling the church coffers on Sunday. Steve Bannon was right...

Speaking of immigrants, sins that cry to Heaven for vengeance, and Bishop Jamie Soto... On top of spouting nonsense about immigration policy and diversity quotas, Bishop Soto also heads up the Catholic Campaign for Human Development. The campaign is marketed as a "domestic anti-poverty program," whereby the CCHD "works to break the cycle of poverty by helping people, help themselves."

Instead of relying on the social and economic teaching of Leo XIII's Rerum Novarum, and coordinating a national movement against the sin of Usury (which is enshrined in the American economy via the Federal Reserve Bank), these wolves in sheep's clothing are taking money from Sunday collection plates, and putting it right into the pockets of our enemies: Radical, Alinskyite, Community Organizing, Alt-Leftists.

Just a quick peruse through the list published by the USCCB and you start to get the feeling that this has less to do with helping the poor, and more to do with helping pink-hat wearing Social Justice Warriors. The Lepanto Institute took more than a cursory peruse through the recipients of the USCCB's CCHD beneficiaries. Thanks to their hard work, they have helped decode this list of Community Organizers, and shown them for what they really are: part and parcel with the homosexualist, abortionist, cult of death.

The USCCB's Catholic Campaign for Human Development is, objectively speaking, evil. At what point do we begin to admit to ourselves that these bishops are actively seeking to destroy not only the Church, but also entire nation states, economies, ethnicities and extinguish the Light of Faith wherever they can. How long will these diabolically disoriented (at best) Bishops continue to try to run God's Holy Church for the sole purpose of benefiting Marxists, Leftists and Homosexuals? These bishops are running the Church for everyone under the sun, except the Son, in Whom, for Whom, and by Whom the Catholic Church was founded.

"How long, O Lord, shall I cry, and thou wilt not hear? shall I cry out to thee suffering violence, and thou wilt not save? Why hast thou shewn me iniquity and grievance, to see rapine and injustice before me? and there is a judgment, but opposition is more powerful. Therefore the law is torn in pieces, and judgment cometh not to the end: because the wicked prevaileth against the just, therefore wrong judgment goeth forth." - Habakkuk 1:2-4

Pope Francis Releases Statement On Amoris Laetitia- Affirms "Primacy of Conscience"

James Austin

Here we go again.

Earlier today, Pope Francis (who stands accused of allowing heresy to spread within the Church) released a video statement to a meeting organized by the Italian Bishops Conference (CEI) on Amoris Laetitia. Yahoo! News said in an article today, that Pope Francis "reaffirmed the 'primacy' of using one's conscience to navigate tough moral questions."

According to Yahoo, "Francis reaffirmed the centrality of 'The Joy of Love' [Amoris Laetitia] as the Church's guide to Catholic couples today trying to navigate the ups and downs of complicated family situations."

The Pope's address smacks of phenomenology, relativism, situational ethics and interior revelation, instead of the defined doctrines, dogmas and traditional practices of Holy Mother Church. In the 4th paragraph the Pope states "Let the Church in Italy help to assimilate and develop Amoris Laetitia’s content and style," giving a nod to Collegiality run rampant in the post-Vatican II Church. One would think that the Pope's teachings wouldn't need to be "assimilated" into the pastoral practice of the Church, but would blend seamlessly with the teaching and practice of the church passed down through the ages.

This document basically stands as an insult to faithful Catholics everywhere, and only continues to muddy the already murky waters for those unaware of the Modernist revolution within the Church. Instead of bringing the clarity and unity that the clergy and the faithful need so desperately in this time of crisis, this letter only further divides the Church.

Dear brothers and sisters, good morning!

I cordially greet all of you who attend the third International Symposium on the Apostolic Exhortation, Amoris Laetitia, convened by the Office for Pastoral Care of the Family of the Italian Bishops’ Conference.

The theme you have proposed: The Gospel of Love between Conscience and Norm, is of great importance, and can illuminate the path that the Churches in Italy are taking, in order to respond to the desire for family that emerges in the soul of the young generations. Love between a man and a woman is obviously among the most generative human experiences; it is the leaven of a culture of  encounter, and introduces to the present world an injection of sociality. Indeed “the good of the family is decisive for the future of the world and of the Church. (Amoris laetitia, 31)” The family born of marriage creates fruitful bonds, which reveal themselves to be the most effective antidote against the individualism that currently runs rampant; however, along the journey of marital love and family life there are situations that require arduous choices, which must be made with rectitude. In the domestic reality, sometimes there are concrete knots to be addressed with prudent conscience on the part of each. It is important that spouses, parents, be not left alone, but accompanied in their commitment to applying the Gospel to the concreteness of life. On the other hand, we know well that “we are called to form consciences, not to pretend to substitute them. (Ibid., 37)”

The contemporary world risks confusing the primacy of conscience, which is always to be respected, with the exclusive autonomy of the individual with respect to the relations that he entertains in life.

As I said recently to the Pontifical Academy for Life, “There are those who even speak of ego-latry, that is, of a true worship of the ego, on whose altar is sacrificed everything, including the dearest affections. This perspective is not harmless: it molds a subject that looks constantly in the mirror, until it becomes incapable of turning its eyes to others and the world. The spread of this attitude has most serious consequences for all the affections and ties of life. (5 Oct., 2017)” This is a “pollution” that corrodes souls and confounds minds and hearts, producing false illusions.

Romano Guardini, in a text on the subject of conscience, indicates the way to the search for the true good. He writes: “From this imprisonment in myself I am free only if I find a point, which is not my ego: a height higher than myself; something solid and working in my interior – and behold! Here we are come to the core [...] that is, to religious reality. That good [...] is something alive. [...] It is the fullness of worth, which belongs to the selfsame living God. (La coscienza, Brescia 1933, 32-33)”

In the very depths of each one of us there is a place wherein the Mystery reveals itself, and illuminates the person, making the person the protagonist of his story. Conscience, as the II Vatican Council recalls, is this, “most secret core and sanctuary of a man. There he is alone with God, Whose voice echoes in his depths. (GS 16)” To the Christian falls the task of being vigilant, so that in this sort of tabernacle is no want of divine grace, which illuminates and strengthens married love and parental mission. Grace fills the amphorae of human hearts with an extraordinary capacity for gift, renewing for the families of today the miracle of the wedding feast at Cana.

Commenting on that Gospel episode, I have been able to say that, “By transforming into wine the water of the jars used ‘for the Jewish rites of purification’ (Jn 2:6), Jesus preforms an eloquent sign: he transforms the Law of Moses into the Gospel, bearer of joy. (Gen. Audience, June 8, 2016)” Jesus points in particular to the medicine of mercy, which cures the hardness of the heart, restoring the relationship between husband and wife, and between parents and children.

Dear Brothers and Sisters, I wish all the best for your work in this Symposium. Let the Church in Italy help to assimilate and develop Amoris laetitia’s content and style; may she contribute to the formation of family group animators in parishes, associations, and movements; may she support the journey of so many families, helping them to live the joy of the Gospel, and to be active cells in the community. I bless you, and I ask you, please, to pray for me.
