Antonio Spadaro threatened Raymond Arroyo's access to the Sacraments:
Papal confidante Father Antonio Spadaro retweeted a call for EWTN to be severely censured “until they get rid of Raymond Arroyo.”
The call for an “interdict” to be imposed on the Catholic media empire started by Mother Angelica came from Anthony Annett, Assistant to the Director at the International Monetary Fund’s Communications Department.
Outing the perversion of bodies, souls and minds by Church officials is a dirty job, but somebody has to do it.
Last week, Pope Francis said he 'ignores' Catholics who raise concerns when what he says and does contradicts the Deposit of Faith.
But, we all know they do not ignore us.
The Pope added: “When I perceive resistance, I try to dialogue, when dialogue is possible.”
And WOE to those to whom their excuses will not gel.
“But some resistance comes from people who believe they possess the true doctrine and accuse you of being a heretic,” he said. “When I do not find spiritual goodness in these people, because of what they say or write, I simply pray for them. It pains me, but I do not dwell on this feeling for the sake of mental hygiene.”
First and foremost, comparisons are being made between what he says and does to the 'true doctrine' of the Church, which we do indeed posses. We posses it because we are Christ's heirs. It's the inheritance purchased by Christ's Blood. Christ and His Church is the author. We are simply showing him what Christ says on the matter.
Rather than accept his statements and deeds are being compared to the true doctrine of Christ, the Holy Father accuses unwavering loyalty to Christ as Catholics who have no spiritual goodness in them. All for the sake of his...mental health. Of course.
The Holy Father's assertion that he ignores and prays for us is disingenuous.
It is true that "dialogue" is their very first attempt at silencing accusations of spiritual malpractice, misfeasance, malfeasance and nonfeasance. But as a veteran of the tactics of spiritual perverts in the Catholic Church, I'm going to go out on a limb here and say they have been trying to silence Raymond and EWTN waaaaaaay before Spadaro's tweet. The bishops and Romans have already made the phone calls. They've slandered and threatened and bullied.
They have been firing away and the bullets have failed to wound their target. Their troops are out of ammunition and they are raising the white flag. Spadaro's public tweet calling for interdict is the last bullet they have in the bunker.
A lot of things can be said. Like, they still have no idea who and what they are up against. They think taking out Arroyo and threatening EWTN, Mother Angelica's apostolate, to cover up their spiritual crimes will solve their problems.
They want to try corrupting EWTN again. Remember what she said the first time Cardinal Mahoney tried to get his corrupt hands on it?
She said she would burn EWTN to the ground before she let the corrupt get their hands on it. Where she is now, I would not want to get into her crosshairs. You can't fix stupid but you can watch it self-destruct.
CCC 675-677 The Church's ultimate trial
“Before Christ's second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the ‘mystery of iniquity’ in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh.
“The Antichrist's deception already begins to take shape in the world every time the claim is made to realize within history that messianic hope which can only be realized beyond history through the eschatological judgment. The Church has rejected even modified forms of this falsification of the kingdom to come under the name of millenarianism, especially the ‘intrinsically perverse’ political form of a secular messianism.
“The Church will enter the glory of the kingdom only through this final Passover, when she will follow her Lord in his death and Resurrection. The kingdom will be fulfilled, then, not by a historic triumph of the Church through a progressive ascendancy, but only by God's victory over the final unleashing of evil, which will cause his Bride to come down from heaven. God's triumph over the revolt of evil will take the form of the Last Judgment after the final cosmic upheaval of this passing world.”
