Document Released

Pretty much what had been leaked...

Read it at Catholic World News (CWN)

An excerpt:

"It would be gravely dishonest if a candidate were to hide his own homosexuality to enter, notwithstanding everything, to Ordination. An attitude so inauthentic does not correspond to the spirit of truth, allegiance, and availability that must characterize the personality of he who believes to be called to serve Christ and His Church in the priestly ministry."

    It is fast becoming one of the great ironies of history that the mainstream Protestant churches were part of what is called the "Protestant Reformation." Now in the 20th and 21st Centuries -with those churches embracing everything from abortion, to serial and gay marriage as well as ordaining practicing gay bishops in gay marriages the REFORMation is clearly over and the Reformation has become the DEFORMation. The only question is how many Catholics will be seduced into jumping into the wreckage that once could have been called a noble cause.

  2. Rev. Mr. Bresnahan,

    I say this as a former protestant. The Deformation happened five hundred years ago. The "Reformers" chose their own dogma over that revealed by Christ. They told Christ that they refused His teachings about the Eucharist, His Mother, the authority of the bishops, the papacy, etc.

    Here's one way to look at it.

    In 1517, Luther said, "I abandon the Church in the name of Christ."

    In 1717, the Freeasons went public, saying, "We abandon Christ in the name of God."

    In 1917, the communists triumphed in Russia, saying, "We abandon God in the name of humanity."

    Now, we have the Culture of Death saying, "We abandon humanity in the name of the environment."

    Note the pattern:

    The letter of Luther: protestantism
    The spirit of Luther: Freemasonry

    The letter of Freemasonry: liberalism
    The spirit of Freemasonry: communism

    The letter of communism: Marxist atheism
    The spirit of communism: the Culture of Death

    See the pattern? That is the importance of doctrine, because little errors of doctrine go a long way.

    If you wish to take this dialog up Deacon John or anyone else, I invite you to my blog faith2understand.blogspot.com (emailing your points and questions to me on faith2understand@catholic.org).
