Dear Bishops.
Enough of this facile nonsense. We are STARVING to death for the truth and you give us Pharell Williams. Amazon can give us Pharell Williams.i tunes can give us Pharell Williams.Give us Christ.Give us the fullness of Truth.Give us the One Holy Catholic Church.
For the bishops there is salvation outside the Church, even for Protestants etc.
The mistake was incorporated in magisterial documents.
Flame 2 and the Archdiocese pastoral programs are also an expression of this.

VIS News reports that on 08 March 2015 Francis visited the Roman parish of Santa Maria Madre del Redentore. The report states:

"Later, in the church, he met with a group of children and young people, and answered their questions. The first was: if God forgives everything, why does Hell exist?

The Pope replied that Hell is the desire to distance oneself from God and to reject God's love. 'But, he added, 'if you were a terrible sinner, who had committed all the sins in the world, all of them, condemned to death, and even when you are there, you were to blaspheme, insults... and at the moment of death, when you were about to die, you were to look to Heaven and say, 'Lord …!', where do you go, to Heaven or to Hell? To Heaven!

Only those who say, I have no need of You, I can get along by myself, as the devil did, are in Hell – and he is the only one we are certain is there'.

I recall Matthew 7:21:

"Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter."

Lent? Repentance? Get in step with the Bishop of Rome and start dancing.

While we're in the midst of our Lenten penitential reflections, may I offer this news item (below) from LifeSite News reporting on one of our very own Brits who has been given a forum at the Vatican?

Something to look forward to at the A&B 50th anniversary celebrations, along with the face painting, fairground attractions, clowns . . .
Funny how, with all these attempts at yoof appeal, so many young people seem never to darken the church door on a Sunday.
As for Lent, wassat?

When you look at the membership of CYMFED it is obvious to see some of the problems:

Really CYMFED should invite groups such as the LMS, Juventutem, Faith Movement and Evangelium who do considerable work with young people into their membership fold.

Meanwhile, in the real Catholic world Our Lady of Good Counsel Network is calling for a day of rigorous fasting on 24 March against a plan to establish exclusion zones around abortuaries.

If this dancing were not in the context of the Mass I would not mind it. However, what I do mind is the way dance is treated as if anyone can do it and dancers who are pretty abject beginners like these girls perform when the organizers would never let a beginner piano player accompany the event. As a palate cleanser, here's a link to contemporary dancers Keone and Mari Madrid who are both Christians, by the way. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_bX0T76X8U

What can one say?

It looks like a cheesy aerobics video from the '80's.

At least back then, we did it to "I love a rainy night" which, btw, would work better with Lent. Just saying . . .

If Protestnats do not have to convert and if the Jesuits say that Hell is empty except for extreme cases, then expect all these changes at Mass. Since the Protestants are also going to Heaven inspite of the dancing etc.

The decline began with a factual error accepted into theology by the magisterium since 1949.
The error have also been incorporated in Dominus Iesus and other magisterial documents.


SSPX show the Vatican the Marchetti error carried over into Redemptoris Missio, Dominus Iesus and other magisterial documents

@Liam. When I read this latest declaration from the Gospel According to Begoglio I recalled exactly the same scripture. If Bergoglio is even vaguely aware of the Gospel According the Matthew he must know his response is the kind that deserves a millstone around one's neck.

PS. Doesn't someone need to inform the flambéTU(or flambéVOUS if we are being polite) troupe that carnival is before Lent? But then tradition be...Vatican flambéTUeed.
