Fr. Thursday: "Avoiding a [Amoris] priest who gives advice like you mentioned (hypothetically, I presume) regarding the 6th Commandment"

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/]

Vox Cantoris vs. Aqua

The Catholic Monitor commenter Aqua had this to say to the Vox Cantoris website: Aqua said… Fred, your topic here reminds me of a dust-up, a few days ago, on Vox Cantoris. He asserted that it is our duty as Christians to wear masks to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass if the government tells us we must, or they will close our Churches. My response to him was that I find it inconceivable that an orthodox Catholic, such as himself, would ever submit to unjust dictates from secular government over how we approach Our Lord in Holy Mass. My response to him was that the Mass belongs to Catholics and we decide, within the bounds of Tradition, and in accord with the Word of Jesus, how we conduct ourselves in Holy Mass. Only one authority prevails over Mass and that is our God and the Sacred Tradition given by Him to guide us in all times and places. Understand, there is nothing inherently wrong with wearing a mask to Mass. But there is EVERYTHING wrong with wearing a symbol

Inventor of mRNA Vaccines, Robert W. Malone MD: "'Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò is calling for the creation of an Anti-Globalist Alliance 'under the Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the only King and Savior,' to fight back against the establishment of the New World Order'"

T his is what the inventor of mRNA vaccines, Robert W. Malone MD himself, reported about the vaccines: Robert W Malone, MD @RWMaloneMD "We conclude that the mRNA vacs dramatically increase inflammation on the endothelium and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination."
