The Pope’s engineered silences

Sandro Magister, Italy’s most important Vatican observer, sheds light on the Pope’s silences:

“He remained silent on the hundreds of Nigerian schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram. He remained silent on the young Sudanese mother Meriam, sentenced to death solely for being Christian and finally liberated by the intervention of others. He remains silent on the Pakistani mother Asia Bibi, who has been on death row for five years, because she too is an ‘infidel’, and [He] does not even reply to the two heartrending letters she has written to him this year, before and after the reconfirmation of the sentence.”

In 2006, Pope Benedict XVI, in his Regensburg lecture, said what no Pope had ever dared to say — that there is a link between violence and Islam. Ten years later, Pope Francis never calls those responsible for anti-Christian violence by name, and never mentions the word “Islam.”

Reality check: There is light somewhere near the end of most tunnels (because we live on a spherical planet, so one must just keep digging … ).

The light so far is: One day, most Catholic churches in Canada will be nice little blocks of condos.

So, Asia, if you wrote to a faithful Catholic like me, she might answer you privately, fast and pray. That’s all it amounts to now, just as it was two millennia ago.

The rest is real estate.

    I’m curious how exactly the Vatican managed to elect such a coward as pope.

    • Martin B

      I’d say the cardinals who elected him are no better than he is, which bodes very ill for the future.

      • Justin St.Denis

        More communists and Jesuit puppets.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Pope Francis is the final realization of almost two centuries of Jesuit plotting, and that is just the beginning…..,

    In my humble opinion Vatican II started the downfall of the Catholic Church. I am also aware of the effect of KGB infiltration which produced the “Liberation Theology”.

    • DVult

      In my not so humble opinion I agree. Throw VatII in the garbage, boot out the modernists, perverts and atheists, canonize Pius XII and bring back the traditional Latin Mass.

        Several years ago I had an eye-opening first hand experience of that group. A devout Catholic friend had invited me to a gathering which mainly consisted of “leaders” (women altar servers or whatever it was called and those giving lessons to those seeking to convert) of the Catholic parishes in the area. While there I made the mistake of expressing my admiration for Mother Angelica and how much I liked her. Well, I got immediately shat on by the whole bunch as though I had mentioned the devil himself. I had no idea since my friend shared my admiration for the nun. I told him afterwards that they really did not strike me as even Catholics based on my childhood experiences. So it seemed to me that most what was Catholic got thrown out with Vatican II.

          My sister is very active in the Catholic Women’s League. Her experience of contemporary Catholics is very similar, although she is far more understanding of their confusion than am I.
