Pope Francis Condemns Gender Ideology

  • Pope Francis warned against the influence of gender ideology in a June 8 message to visiting bishops from Puerto Rico.

    The Pope told the bishops, who were making their ad limina visits, that the distinct roles of men and women are designed for “communion and generation, always as the image and semblance of God.” He encouraged them to protect and defend the beauty of marriage.

    The Pope cautioned against the influence of other ideologies as well, reminding the bishops: “The Church, by virtue of her mission, is not linked to any political system.” He urged them to work together to promote the Gospel, noting that divisions within the Church dampen the force of evangelization.

    During the Jubilee Year of Mercy, the Pope said, all bishops and priests should be “faithful servants of God's forgiveness, especially in the sacrament of Reconciliation, which allows God's love to be experienced in the flesh and offers every penitent the source of true inner peace.”

    "As the head of the Church, I cannot answer you otherwise: The Jews have not recognized Our Lord; therefore we cannot recognize the Jewish people." -Pope St. Pius X

    "No Jew adores God! Who say so?  The Son of God say so."

  • Quote from: Pope St. Pius X

    Already we observe, Venerable Brethren, the introduction of that most pernicious doctrine which would make of the laity the factor of progress in the Church. Now it is by a species of covenant and compromise between these two forces of conservation and progress, that is to say between authority and individual consciences, that changes and advances take place. The individual consciences, or some of them, act on the collective conscience, which brings pressure to bear on the depositories of authority to make terms and to keep to them.

    With all this in mind, one understands how it is that the Modernists express astonishment when they are reprimanded or punished. What is imputed to them as a fault they regard as a sacred duty. They understand the needs of consciences better than anyone else, since they come into closer touch with them than does the ecclesiastical authority. Nay, they embody them, so to speak, in themselves. Hence, for them to speak and to write publicly is a bounden duty. Let authority rebuke them if it pleases -- they have their own conscience on their side and an intimate experience which tells them with certainty that what they deserve is not blame but praise. Then they reflect that, after all, there is no progress without a battle and no battle without its victims; and victims they are willing to be like the prophets and Christ Himself. They have no bitterness in their hearts against the authority which uses them roughly, for after all they readily admit that it is only doing its duty as authority. Their sole grief is that it remains deaf to their warnings, for in this way it impedes the progress of souls, but the hour will most surely come when further delay will be impossible, for if the laws of evolution may be checked for a while they cannot be finally evaded. And thus they go their way, reprimands and condemnations not withstanding, masking an incredible audacity under a mock semblance of humility. While they make a pretense of bowing their heads, their minds and hands are more boldly intent than ever on carrying out their purposes. And this policy they follow willingly and wittingly, both because it is part of their system that authority is to be stimulated but not dethroned, and because it is necessary for them to remain within the ranks of the Church in order that they may gradually transform the collective conscience.

    So, do you mean to say that Pope Pius X is in agreement with Pope Francis on this issue?

    Dear Mrs. Poche- Please see me at your earliest convenience so that we can arrange for a tutor to help little Pochie work on his reading comprehension.
