This Gnosticism is in Neo-Platonism which is implicit in the Eastern Church Fathers and Eastern Orthodoxy which appears to reject part of the Catholic doctrine of the Incarnation by rejecting that the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Son and this in part led to the Eastern Orthodox accepting of intrinsic evils such as contraception, divorce and other errors.

It seemed useful because of the length of the article to post with James' permission a email exchange we had that gives a overview a his important, but long piece:

Great article Jim. I agree with most of it.

 Good tracing back beyond even Ockham of Kant and Hegel to heretical
Neo-Platonism. I agree that Ratzinger was a Hegelian and Teihardian, but he was

 moving away from Kantianism from which comes Hegel both of which come from
 Ockham and as you traced all the way back to heretical Neo-Platonism.

 I think Ratzinger was a confused thinker attempting to get out of the Kant
 trap who never was able to get out of the H and T trap.

Ratzinger it appears too me was attempting to be a orthodox
Catholic despite deeply flawed philosophy whereas Francis
is not making a attempt to be orthodox.

In link below read where Ratzinger says one can't put praxis ahead of doctrine as
does Francis and the Marxist Hegelians.

 Fred,

 I agree. Ratzinger was trying to get out of the Kant trap, while
 rejecting Thomism, and this because of his surrender to reductive
 science. I read the piece you sent. It is so much like thousands of
 other pages he wrote - bouncing from one confused modern philosopher
 to another, juxtaposing them, and ending up with nothing. It draws
 forth the image of a man slushing through a swamp futilely searching
 for clean and refreshing water, while 200 feet away there is a hill
 offering an artesian spring of pure, living water. Most disturbing,
 however, is the fact that he always comes across as believing that all
 this is a necessary and worthwhile endeavor. There is not even any
 honest sign of desperation. That, to me, is what is really scary about
 him. He should be weeping and loudly crying out for help.

Jim

Here is a brief overview of Jim's treatise.

Gnosticism is pantheistic which rejects that God created everything out of nothing. It, also, believes we and creation are sparks of God and can return to be God with Gnosticism's secret knowledge.

This Gnosticism is in Neo-Platonism which is implicit in the Eastern Church Fathers and Eastern Orthodoxy which appears to reject part of the Catholic doctrine of the Incarnation by rejecting that the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Son and this in part led to the Eastern Orthodox accepting of intrinsic evils such as contraception, divorce and other errors.  

Neo-Platonism was rejected and purified of its heretical elements by St. Thomas Aquinas which was and is in many non-Thomist scholars and even saints throughout Catholic history.

Gnosticism returned to Catholicism in our time as a strong force through Modernism specifically Hegelianism and Teilhard de Chardin's evolutionary teachings which were supported with some qualifications by Pope Benedict and without apparently any qualifications by Pope Francis.

Francis's Gnostic Teihardism means "Time is proposed... as being greater than God's Supreme Being... and Revealed Truth" so Francis's "mercy trumps" the Ten Commandments and all moral infallible teachings starting with allowing Communion for adulterers in it's evolutionary unfolding.

The piece is long so I advice unless you have time to skim or scan the piece first and then go back to it when you have time. It is well worth the effort.

Please pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

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

Mainstream Media: "Is America the Real Victim of Anti-Russia Sanctions?" & "Biden's arrogant anti-Russian sanctions have amounted to a price hike on working class Americans that have so far failed to weaken the Russian economy"

  Mainstream Media Acknowledges Biden’s “Arrogant” Sanctions On Russia Are Damning Americans:     @MaxBlumenthal Biden's arrogant anti-Russian sanctions have amounted to a price hike on working class Americans that have so far failed to weaken the Russian economy. His neocon policy accelerates the process of de-dollarization, diplomatic isolation & imperial decline. The mainstream new outlet asked "Is America the Real Victim of Anti-Russia Sanctions?": Remember the claims that Russia’s economy was more or less irrelevant, merely the equivalent of a small, not very impressive European country? “Putin, who has an economy the size of Italy,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said in 2014 after the invasion of Crimea, “[is] playing a poker game with a pair of twos and winning.” Of increasing Russian diplomatic and geopolitical influence in Europe, the Middle East, and East Asia, The Economist asked in 2019, “How did a country with an economy the size of Spain … ach
