Liberal Establishment 'Peace' Prayer
Where there is hatred, let me bring heresy.
Where there is injury, let me bring schism.
Where there is discord, let me bring dissent.
Where there is doubt, let me bring confusion.
Where there is error, let me bring more error.
Where there is despair, let me bring moral relativism.
Where there is sadness, let me bring feminism.
Where there is darkness, let me bring shades of grey.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be liberal as to liberalise, to be participatory as to encourage participation, to be loved as to love promoting a female priesthood, same-sex unions, and voluntary celibacy for male priests. For it is in giving scandal that we receive attention. It is in exploring theological cul-de-sacs that we are promoted and it is in ying that we are born to eternal yang.'
I've realised there is no point pointing out the theological orthodoxy of the Saints of the different ages with professors with a liberal agenda, because what liberal professors do is, instead of looking up to the Saints as is fitting for devotion, they drag them down to their level. So, St Francis of Assisi, perhaps one the most orthodox of Catholics who ever lived, in their eyes, 'would have agreed with' same-sex unions, 'if he was around today' because he was 'compassionate, kind and caring'. Deep down, Francis was a 'feminist' and that's clear from his writings and his holy love for St Clare. Obviously, he thought she'd have made an excellent priest...'
These professors do the same with Our Lord, yes, that's right, God Himself. In the opinion of these learned scholars, the Lord is not the Lord, Almighty God, He is just the vehicle for whatever cause they decide is fitting for the modern age in a modern Church. Jesus is a feminist, a socialist, a thinker, a campaigner, an activist, a helper of the poor, an ecologist, our friend, but He is not, really, in the expert opinions of these scholars, God. That is why these 'expert' theologians and respected scholars are so infuriating and insulting. They trample all over what the poorest simpleton, the most uneducated pauper can accept with humble and obedient faith and cannot begin to understand why he even loves that faith in its fullness and doesn't desire to alter any of its doctrines, teachings, devotions or traditions.
That is why it makes me so angry to read about these theologians. What the uneducated and those not so 'wise' in the ways of the world can accept, if they can never understand, the educated tirade against and wish to tear down! If they could they would strip Churches in a manner that would make Henry's men blush! If they were in charge of the Churches, Our Lady would be scorned, Our Lord mocked and the Poor would be left to starve because nothing, nothing so as important as the next liturgical committee meeting and the next round of power-struggles with the Priest!
Enough...I'll give myself an ulcer if I don't calm down.
