The Church of priests is coming to an end
Certainly, as Sandro Magister claims “the Church of priests is coming to an end.” With it, the Sacraments are coming to an end as well. This is because satan needs to rid the world of the Sacrifice, and Christ’s presence in the Eucharist. The puppets of satan’s plan are those climate change, free-Willy, tree-hugging fools who have been duped to think ‘the good’ can be found in this world and not in the world to come. I’m not one of these Marxists seeking an earthly utopia.
Why does satan need to rid the world of the Sacrifice? First, we need to know what happens during the celebration of the Eucharistic. To this end, please reflect slowly on Lumen Gentium 11 – this is what happens at Mass:
Taking part in the Eucharistic sacrifice, which is the fount (source) and apex (summit) of the whole Christian life, the [priestly community] offer the Divine Victim to God, and offer themselves along with It. Thus both by reason of the offering and through Holy Communion all take part in this liturgical service, not indeed, all in the same way but each in that way which is proper to himself. Strengthened in Holy Communion by the Body of Christ, they then manifest in a concrete way that unity of the people of God which is suitably signified and wondrously brought about by this most august sacrament (Lumen Gentium (LG) 11).
Note that the Body of Christ is a priestly community. We offer in union with Jesus the Sacrifice perpetuated for the forgiveness of our sins (as we hear during the consecration of the Precious Blood) making 1. Christ present 2. the Sacrifice present and 3. Christ’s Body participate in redemption through its priestly “offering and through Holy Communion” (LG 11). It is my understanding that the abolition of the Sacrifice will allow the horrible sacrilege to occur (Mt 24:15). This is what is restraining the wicked One from appearing (2 Thessalonians 2:6-7).
How to do this? 1. Sacrilegious communion (i.e., communing with mortal sin), 2. offering communion services instead of the Mass (happening in Germany now), 3. allowing deacons to ‘say Mass,’ 4. change the Mass (i.e., by accepting protestant doctrine), or just 5. outlawing the Mass. Below is option 3. God forbid…
In the Amazon Married Deacons Are Already Saying Mass. And the Pope Knows It
For a few days a video has been circulating on the web in which an Italian priest of the highest rank, among those closest to Jorge Mario Bergoglio, says that in the Amazon the celebration of the Mass by married deacons is already a de facto reality, authorized by the local bishops. And Pope Francis, informed of the matter, is alleged to have said ”Go ahead!”
The author of this revelation is not just anybody. He is Giovanni Nicolini, 79, an esteemed priest of the archdiocese of Bologna, which has as its archbishop that Matteo Zuppi whom a few days ago Francis promoted as cardinal.
Fr. Nicolini is currently a national ecclesiastical assistant of the Catholic Associations of Italian Workers, ACLI, and was previously director of Caritas of Bologna, in addition to being a parish priest in the neighbourhood next to the prison. A priest of the poor, of the imprisoned, of the immigrants: this is his best-known profile.
But even before this he was a spiritual son of Giuseppe Dossetti (1913-1996), a leading politician in postwar Italy and then, as monk and priest, a protagonist of Vatican Council II along with Cardinal Giacomo Lercaro.
In the footsteps of Dossetti, Fr. Nicolini founded in the 1970’s the Family of the Visitation, a community now made up of around thirty monks and nuns and as many married couples, divided between the countryside of Bologna and the archdiocesan missions in Tanzania and Jerusalem.
Moreover, Fr. Nicolini is connected to that influential progressive Catholic think tank known as the “school of Bologna,” which had its founder in the same Dossetti and has in Church historian Alberto Melloni and in Bose monastery founder Enzo Bianchi its current mainstays and gurus, both of them ultra-Bergoglians.
So here is a link to
Fr. Nicolini’s shocking video:
> “Sento l’opportunità di ricordare…”
The video is part of a broader “lesson” by Fr. Nicolini, it too recorded, at the summer school of the political-cultural Catholic association La Rosa Bianca, held in Terzolas, Trentino from August 21 to 25.
And the following is an exact transcription of his words concerning the celibacy of the clergy and the “Masses” that already are said to be celebrated by married deacons in the Amazon, with the authorization of the local bishops and the support of Pope Francis.
AND THE POPE SAID: “GO AHEAD!”
I feel it is fitting to recall, together with you, that the Church of priests is coming to an end. Is this a prophecy? No, it is the reality. This has to be taken into account, because it changes completely. We are now reaching the height of folly, every priest is taking care of six parishes, but this is how it ends. This crisis of the priesthood in any case will increase relentlessly, until serious consideration is finally given to the suitability of abolishing the celibacy of priests.
As long as this celibacy of priests remains, the decline is unstoppable, in part because very often there is no reflection on the fact that I, for example, am a priest, but before being a priest I am a monk. Francesco, who is here, is a monk, and since [we] are a very small monastic community of prayer we have given to the Church of Bologna the gift of five priests, but we have been able to do so because we belong to a different breed. But as long as there continues a situation according to which - you get it, right? - the fact of remaining celibate is purely an arrangement of the disciplinary order, juridical, not a vow, not a gift of God, not supported by the life of the community… That’s all it is, he doesn’t get married, the rule is that he cannot marry. But it is clear that when I find out that a thirty-year-old priest who comes to me for confession, now they are putting him in a big rural area by himself, in six months he has a mistress. And so now this decline will be very rapid. They other day someone told me that if one does the math, in 2030 Bologna will have 30 priests. Right now there are 450, and that’s already a big decline. And so this structure of the Church will no longer be there.
The synod of bishops for the Amazon is taking place. We found out that in the Amazon one evening, from an isolated mission parish in the Amazon they made a pone call, it was an old deacon, in his sixties, married, who said to his bishop: “I have to tell you that tomorrow there won’t be any Mass, because there is no priest.” And the bishop told him: “You go there and say Mass.” A married deacon, children already raised, the “elders” are called, and the bishops there have given him authorization to preside over the liturgy. They told the pope about this and the pope said: “For now we cannot write anything, you go ahead!” I wondered, when I found out that he was convening the worldwide meeting of bishops for the Amazon, who knows if perhaps he can or wants to say something. But the Church, in its concrete juridical structure, as it exists now, is at an end.
That does it for the words of Fr. Giovanni Nicolini, which lead to questions that demand answers, even before the synod for the Amazon begins.
Is it true or false, what he says about the “Masses” already being celebrated in the Amazon by married deacons?
And is it true or false that Francis gave the go-ahead?
