This will be the shortest article that I have ever written.
Yes, at any time in my sixty-two and one-half years of life as of this very day.
To the point.
No lengthy historical backgrounds.
No references to the popular culture of th 1950s an early 1960s.
Are you ready?
Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s Ding Dong School Of Apostasy lesson at the Casa Santa Marta on Thursday, May 22, 2014, a Paschaltide ferial day and the Feast of Saint Rita of Cascia, who led a very joyful life precisely because the mortifications she undertook as an religious sister of the Order of Saint Augustine, included the following passage:
“Joy, which is like the sign of a Christian. A Christian without joy is either not a Christian or he is sick. There’s no other type! He is not doing well health-wise! A healthy Christian is a joyful Christian. I once said that there are Christians with faces like pickled peppers [sour faces – ed] … Always with these [long] faces! Some souls are also like this, this is bad! These are not Christians. A Christian without joy is not Christian. Joy is like the seal of a Christian. Even in pain, tribulations, even in persecutions“. (Healthy are the Joyful–or is that Joyful are the healthy?)
Ignoring entirely Jorge’s attack on those whose “sad” countenances disturb as just another manifestation of his own compulsive need to belittle and, if necessary, to persecute those who can be considered “too traditional” in their beliefs and practices, here is my own definition of a healthful and joyful Christian:
A HEALTHY, JOYFUL CHRISTIAN IS ONE WHO DOES NOT HAVE TO PAY ANY ATTENTION TO, NO LESS WRITE ABOUT, JORGE MARIO BERGOGLIO’S DIATRIBES.
A HEALTHY, JOYFUL CHRISTIAN IS ONE WHO RECOGNIZES THAT JORGE MARIO IS A HERETIC AND CANNOT BE A TRUE AND LEGITIMATE SUCCESSOR OF SAINT PETER.
A HEALTHY, JOYFUL CHRISTIAN IS ONE WHO UNDERSTANDS THAT THE CATHOLIC CHURCH CAN NEVER BE THE AUTHOR OF HERESY, APOSTASY, RELIGIOUS INDIFFERENTISM, SCANDAL, SACRILEGE, BLASPHEMY AND LITURGICAL ABOMINATION.
This very joyful Catholic, who is very tired of having to deal with the unhealthy Argentine Apostate, is going to get some sleep before becoming unhealthy by having to read and then comment upon The Road to Gehenna Road Show with Jorge, Abe and Omar.
