Repost: Fr. Thursday on the Sin of Solicitation

Dear Ann,

Good morning, and all the very best on the feast of the Chair!

As always, I enjoy what you write and what you and “Super Nerd” discuss on your podcasts.

I had one thing to add to your remarks on podcast #046, about the 48 minute mark; in addition to avoiding a priest who gives advice like you mentioned (hypothetically, I presume) regarding the 6th Commandment, your readers (listeners) should know that any priest who advises violating the 6th or 9th Commandments is guilty of solicitation, i.e. inducing the penitent into impurity. It doesn’t have to be inducement into a sin with the priest himself; it can be any approval or encouragement to commit any sin of impurity. Solicitation, of course, still carries the penalty of suspension a divinis and excommunication latae sententiae (i.e., no adjudication needed). Any penitent who encountered that kind of thing should rightfully inform the bishop or vicar general, and then go straight to the Sacred Penitentiary in Rome if not satisfied with the response. Even if nothing is done outwardly to the priest-culprit, they would remain excommunicated until they were absolved by the Sacred Penitentiary in Rome. (Bishops do not have faculties for lifting excommunication or suspension for solicitation.) You probably already knew all this, but just in case you didn’t ….

As always, I continue to offer the true Mass for you and your benefactors on Thursdays (e.g., today!).

All the very best for a holy Lent,

Fr. Thursday

Sadly, I have been told by more than one person over the years that they have been told by a priest in the confessional that they need to “get laid” and would be better off for it.  This happens, both in the context of heterosexual fornication, and sodomy.  Most priests of this ilk don’t hear confessions as a matter of principle – they don’t believe in sin, and hate God, His Church and the Sacraments.  However, there are also priests that are so malicious, so filled with spite and hatred of God that they luxuriate in going into the confessional and doing as much damage as possible.  I coined the term “Diabolical Narcissism” for a reason. These filthy wretches are diabolical. [https://www.barnhardt.biz/2019/07/27/fr-thursday-on-the-sin-of-solicitation/]

Flashback: Virtue Signaling Francis Trads did to Frank Walker what RINO "Conservatives" are doing, now, to Trump

For Virtue Signaling Banning the Mass Francis Trads is Frank Walker the New Trump?   March 25, 2020 British conservative Daniel Hannan said: "Virtue signaling is competitive. When all your friends are anti-Trump, you have to go further." After President Donald Trump took office the liberal virtue signaling was very competitive with them, calling him every name in the book with death threats as well as 12,000 Tweets for his assassination and the famous Kathy Griffin's beheading Trump photo. After Canon 212 publisher Frank Walker made a headline which he later admitted he made a mistake on it appears that banning the Mass Francis traditionalists decided to join in the liberal-like behavior in a frenzy of virtue signaling against him. The Francis trads like the liberals are very competitive in their virtue signaling. Remember, when all your friends are anti-Walker, you have to go farther. The banning the Mass Francis traditionalists have issued num

"Catholics for Trump" Taylor Marshall has sure Gone Dark on the Subject... Wondering... Whole concept of Bogus Elections (as per Francis) is just a Bridge Too Far

For a guy who headed up a group called "Catholics for Trump," Taylor Marshall has sure gone dark on the subject in recent days.  His "What If Trump Loses?" show features his claim of not giving up, but all he has really said all week is to focus on our own spiritual lives. Nothing wrong with prayer and penance, to be sure! But I can't help wondering whether the whole concept of bogus elections (as per Francis) is just a bridge too far. Important Note : The publisher of the Catholic Monitor has made a pledge to say the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary everyday for a Rosary Lepanto-like victory for President Trump. He asks all CM readers to make this pledge. " THE HOLY ROSARY, MOST POWERFUL WEAPON AGAINST THE ENEMY OF GOD AND MAN... Saint Pius V ordered the faithful to recite the Rosary to impetrate victory from God in the epic battle of the Christian Armada against the Turk in the waters of Lepanto: still today, at noon each day, the bells rin
