    Program for 2018 World Meeting of Families Features Homosexual Imagery & Themes
    Steve Skojec October 18, 2017 270 Comments
    In a report last week at Ireland’s The Independent, we learned that Bishop Brendan Leahy of Limerick wants those involved in same-sex “marriages” to attend the World Meeting of Families in Ireland next year. “We’ve had the referendum in favour of same-sex marriage,” Leahy said, “and a lot of people voted in that referendum and all are equally welcome to join in this celebration of family.” Taking the issue further, he insisted that “Everyone must be made feel welcome next year.”
    But his comments didn’t stand alone. According to the Irish website Gay Community News (GCN), the parish program produced in preparation for the event the features a “Pro LGBT+ Message”:
    Quote
    “While the Church upholds the ideal of marriage as a permanent commitment between a man and a woman, other unions exist which provide mutual support to the couple,” the program, entitled Amoris: Let’s talk Family! Let’s be Family!, reads.
    “Pope Francis encourages us never to exclude but to accompany these couples also, with love, care and support.”

    According to GCN, “This message is accompanied by an image of two women (with their heads cropped out) embracing each other on page twenty-four of the program.” The image in the brochure is as follows:
    Adding insult to injury, GCN has featured their report, entitled “Irish Bishops Welcome Same-Sex Families at Catholic Conference”, as their front page cover story. The headline appears under a stock photo of two women preparing to kiss at their “wedding” while holding a sign saying “We are family!”. (Directly adjacent to the image is a piece of artwork too vulgar for us to display on 1P5):

    Internet sleuths have already discovered the full image that was cropped in the World Meeting of Families Program, and it has been making the rounds on social media along with the accompanying quote:
    This is not the first time the World Meeting of Families — an overtly Catholic event — has invited same-sex couples. In 2015, then-Bishop Vincenzo Paglia, then Pontifical Family Council President (now head of the Pontifical Academy for Life and the Pope John Paul II Institute for Marriage and Family) said, when asked if homosexual couples could come to the event, “Everyone can come, nobody is excluded. And if anyone feels excluded, I’ll leave the 99 little sheep and go and get him.” That same year, the Lepanto Institute revealed “that the president of the World Meeting of Families had donated thousands of dollars to political candidates that thoroughly support abortion and same-sex ‘marriage'” — a report which earned them a surprising rebuke from Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput.
    It was also in 2015 that Ireland voted“overwhelmingly” to legalize same-sex marriage. The Archbishop of Dublin, Diarmuid Martin, said before the referendum that it was not his policy “to tell others how to vote.” Exactly one year and one day later, the Vatican announced that Ireland would be the location for the 2018 World Meeting of Families. In his presentation of the theme for the meeting, “The Gospel of the family, joy for the world,” Paglia indicated that the post-synodal apostolic exhortation Amoris Laeitita would be the “charter” for the meeting. “Amoris Laetitia,” said Paglia, “requires not a simple update of family pastoral ministry, but much more: a new way of living the Church, a new way of achieving the love that gladdens the life of the people of God, of families and of society itself. In this sense the Dublin meeting assumes a special nature compared to the other World Meetings.” Paglia also reminded Europeans that Francis had only recently “forcefully exhorted” them to “rediscover their humanistic vocation.”
    In his own comments about the 2018 meeting, Archbishop Martin of Dublin said that Amoris Laetitiademanded “not a simple updating of family pastoral care, but much more — a new way of living the church, a new way of fulfilling that love that renders the life of the people of God, of families and of society happy.”
    He also indicated that there was significance in the meeting being held in Ireland, which was being “marked by a delicate moment of transition”. Martin emphasized that the meeting would focus not only on the “Christian ideal” of marriage and family, but also serve as encouragement for those “who can’t achieve the Christian ideal”.
    He emphasized that the meeting would be about “inclusivity”, in accordance with the pastoral approach of Pope Francis and the post-synodal exhortation.[/font][/font][/size][/color]

  • Philadelphia’s mayor used platform at World Meeting of Families to push gay agenda right before pope spoke
    Pete Baklinski Follow Pete

     Charles Chaput ,  Homosexuality , Pope Francis ,  World Meeting Of Families
    PHILADELPHIA, September 28, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- Philadelphia’s mayor used a platform given to him in front of tens of thousands of pilgrims at the World Meeting of Families to promote the “rights” of homosexuals.
    "In America, everyone has rights," said Mayor Michael Nutter at Independence Hall before the pope’s September 26 address. “Our lesbian, gay, and bisexual citizens continue to fight for equality,” he added.
    Nutter urged same-sex attracted persons in the audience to continue fighting, hinting that the Catholic Church under Pope Francis was aiding them in the effort.
    "Keep fighting for your rights," he said. "It's a collective fight. And there are many others fighting with you."
    The mayor served as honorary co-chair for the World Meeting of Families, by invitation of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, despite his well-known history as a LGBT activist and strong proponent of gay “marriage.” Nutter, who says he is Catholic, has even officiated at a gay “wedding.”
    Earlier this year Nutter, who is a Democrat, boasted that the city, under his leadership, "has enacted the strongest civil rights law and protections for LGBT citizens of any city in the country and was recognized by the Human Rights Campaign in 2014 as the number one city for LGBT equality.”

    Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput decided to keep Nutter’s Saturday speaking engagement despite various Catholic groups having beforehand raised serious concerns about the mayor’s credentials as a faithful Catholic.
    One of the groups, Church Militant, even highlighted to the archdiocese Nutter’s plan to — in the mayor’s own words — “advance these [LGBT] issues on an international stage” at the event, but to no avail.
    “Nutter has made clear his plans to take advantage of his position of prominence, both as Philadelphia mayor and as honorary co-chair of the World Meeting of Families, to advance the gay agenda when the Pope visits — and the faithful are left wondering why Chaput continues to refuse to do anything to remedy this,” Church Militant’s Christine Niles wrote September 22.
    Another group, the Lepanto Institute, made great efforts in August to communicate with the archdiocese about Nutter’s dissent from Catholic teaching on marriage, abortion, and contraception, but with no results.
    “At a time when advocates for abortion, contraception, same-sex ‘marriage’ and all manner of evil are pressing their attack against the Catholic Church and the very nature of TRUE families, such advocates should not be given any honorary positions or positions of leadership in any capacity at a Catholic event; especially one focused on upholding the very things that these individuals and their corporations are seeking to destroy,” Michael Hichborn of the Lepanto Institute wrote August 25.
    Instead of taking into account the Institute’s concerns about the mayor and others, the archdiocese issued a press release in which it accused the Lepanto Institute of acting “with the sole intention” of creating “division, confusion, and conflict within the Church,” adding that its “reports are not to be taken seriously.”
    LifeSiteNews contacted the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and asked Archbishop Chaput for comment on the mayor’s speech, but Director of Communications Keneth Gavin responded: “The Archbishop will not be able to participate in this interview.”
    Hichborn told LifeSiteNews that Mayor Nutter used the platform given to him by the archdiocese and his honorable position “as I feared would happen,” namely to “call upon the homosexual community to continue their fight for ‘rights and equality.’”
    “In speaking to a Catholic audience, he was in effect calling Catholics to abandon their faith and embrace the homosexual revolution,” he said. “Nutter should never have been given honors or a platform to speak.”
    Hichborn called the archdiocese’s involvement with Nutter a “symptom of a much larger problem.”

    “When I tried to warn the Archdiocese about Nutter and others, the Archdiocese told the Catholic world that my ‘reports are not to be taken seriously.’  Even if they didn’t want to concern themselves with my reports, they could have heeded Nutter’s publicly stated intentions, but they chose to ignore that as well.”
    “For the last couple of decades, bishops have placed a lot of stock in the wealthy, the powerful, and in politicians. The net result is that while millions of dollars are poured into major events such as the World Meeting of Families, the mission of the Church has been watered down. Emphasis has shifted from the Kingdom of God to the City of man. And, in the process, souls are being led astray and lost,” he said.
    The Archdiocese of Philadelphia was not the only diocese to be criticized for the people it selected to make a public presentation at an event involving the pope. The Archdiocese of New York under Cardinal Dolan received criticism from faithful Catholics after appointing well-known homosexual advocate Mo Rocca as lector during Pope Francis' Mass in Madison Square Garden on September 25.
    When news of Rocca’s official role as lector at a Mass with the pope hit social media, many saw this as a sign of the way leadership is pushing the Church to accept homosexuality and gay “marriage.”
    “That was Mo Cocca participating in the Pope’s Mass. How many people realize what a huge statement that is? aka he is GAY,” wrote one commenter on Twitter.
    “Seriously, what an amazing statement that the Pope has openly gay Mo Rocca give the first reading. A not-subtle message. Bravo,” wrote another.
    Matthew Pearson of Church Militant saw the choice of Rocca as problematic.
    “Many questions and frustrations still remain as to why, out of all the Catholics in New York City, a famous, open homosexual was chosen,” he wrote in a report.
    “Whatever the truth of the matter may be, Rocca was not picked because he's a Spanish-speaking Catholic born of Colombian and Italian descent. He was chosen because of his open homosexuality and his support of gay ‘marriage’ by revolutionaries within the archdiocese trying to push change to Church teaching. And Cdl. Dolan, as head of the archdiocese, is responsible for giving final approval,” he said.

    The Eighth Amendment to the Irish Constitution that makes abortion illegal in all circumstances. If women in Ireland want an abortion, currently, they have to fly to England. The current Taoiseach (or Prime Minister) wants to have a vote on possibly repealing it and legalizing abortion.
    There is a God, but there probably is no Pope Francis.

    Aha! Now it makes sense. Thank you.
    .
    If St. Patrick was successful the first time I wonder what it would take to convert Ireland THIS time?
    .
    My missal says that he found Ireland pagan and left it Catholic.
    .
    Tradition says he chased all the snakes out of Ireland but now it looks like the snakes have made a come-back.

    There's pro-life Democrats, especially in the South. One of them is Dan Lipinski of suburban Chicago.

    Sinn Fein were, back at the beginning of the 20th century, the champions for Irish freedom from the English occupation of Catholic Ireland.

    Today, supposedly representing the Catholics in the North of Ireland, they are anti-Catholic, trying to get the Protestants of Nt Ireland to vote in queer 'marriage' and abortion. Here in the south they are pushing every anti-catholic campaign one can think of. They are Lucifer's army.
