Francis's False Humility doesn't lead to True Humility in Christ & the Resurrection of Easter

The great theologian Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange said "Humility... consists in abasing ourselves before God."
(Christianperfection.info, "The Three Ages of the Interior Life")

True humility or abasement is shown to involve repentance from sin and abasement in and with Jesus to God the Father:

"Catechism of the Catholic Church

 537: Through Baptism the Christian... must enter into this mystery of humble self-abasement and repentance, go down into the water with Jesus in order to rise with Him, be reborn of water and the Spirit so as to become the Father's beloved son in the Son."

Pope Francis in his Palm Sunday liturgy homily said:

"[Jesus] knows that true triumph involves making room for God... self-emptying. To remain silent, to pray, to accept humiliation."

Francis in a homily in 2014 explained what he means by humiliation:

"That is the path of Jesus Christ: abasement, humility, humiliation... if a thought, if a desire takes you along the road of humility and abasement, of service to others, is from Jesus."
(Catholic News Agency, "Pope Francis: the path of "humiliation' leads us to Jesus," January 7, 2014)

Francis is wrong if he means that "humility and abasement, of service to others" by themselves are the "path of Jesus Christ."

The true path of Jesus Christ to true humility and true charity is "abasing ourselves before God" in repentance from sin and in adoration of the Father by going "down into the water with Jesus in order to rise with Him, be reborn of water and the Spirit so as to become the Father's beloved son in the Son."

After "abasing ourselves before God" and adoring Him then "service for others" flows from our repentance from sin, abasement before God and love of Him.

Catholics following the Apostle St. James's "faith without works is dead" are not Martin Luther Protestants who believe that good works are useless, but we don't abase ourselves before man or do service for man unless it is ultimately pointing to abasement and service to God.

Sadly, it appears for Francis that humility and abasement doesn't necessarily involve or include repentance from sin, abasement before God and adoration of Him.

St. Paul put it best:

"Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things and consider them as dung."

Yes, even humiliation and service to others unless it flows from adoration and love of God is "dung," but if it flows from true humility and charity it is precious for "faith without works is dead."

Sadly, self-humiliation is not always good and can be evil. We find this out by a little research into a dung word, coprophilia, of Francis that is related to perversion and moral evil:

"[I]n Psychopathia Sexualis... categorize foot fetishism [such as foot kissing] and coprophilia under the same heading... Self-humiliation."
(Book. google.com, "Dada and Surrealist Films,"Page 165)

This brings us to a historical fact of Francis:

Never before in the history of Catholicism has a healthy pope repeatedly refused to kneel in front of the Holy Eucharist and meanwhile kneeled spontaneously to kiss the feet of politicians.

To put this in perspective, imagine if Pope John Paul II while he was still healthy had repeatedly refused to kneel in front of the Holy Eucharist, but meanwhile kneeled spontaneously to kiss the feet of Mikhail Gorbachev, President Ronald Reagan or a Muslim politician.

Pray Francis comes to understand true humility and starts kneeling before the Holy Eucharist.

May we all this Easter have true humility and abase ourselves before God "with Jesus in order to rise with Him, be reborn of water and the Spirit so as to become the Father's beloved son in the Son."

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

Might Biden be a Liar & Predator like McCarrick?

September 15, 2020   Everyone knows that sexual predator ex-cardinal Theodore McCarrick is a liar. His whole life was a lie of betrayal of the most sacred vows he took and the violation of the moral tenets of the Catholic faith which he desecrated. Most people don't realize that part of this desecration of lies included lying for "gravely sinful" Democrats like Joe Biden. McCarrick protected Biden when then head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (later to be Pope Benedict XVI) wrote that bishops were not to admit to Communion politicians like "gravely sinful" Biden who supports the killing of unborn babies. McCarrick lied for politicians like Biden by ignoring the important parts of the Ratzinger letter and told bishops not to ignore the Catholic Church law.  Last year, Fr. Robert Morey denied Holy Communion to the “gravely sinful” Biden following a "2004 decree signed jointly by the bishops of
