The Face of the New Church of "Mercy"

As Life Site News reports, Bishop Franz-Josef Bode (pictured above), who is no less than Vice President of the German Bishops’ Conference, “has called for a discussion about the possibility of blessing homosexual relationships. He believes there to be ‘much [that is] positive’ in such relationships.”
This was, of course, inevitable as an outcome of the manipulated Phony Synod on the Family, whose “midterm report,” concocted without the actual participation of the Synod Fathers and published to the world before they had even read it, called for “accepting and valuing [homosexuals’] sexual orientation,” declared that “homosexual unions” offer “precious support for the partners” and stressed the “positive aspects” of civil “remarriage” following divorce and simple cohabitation, while admitting the divorced and “remarried” to Holy Communion on a “case-by-case” basis. Even after rejection of these outrageous propositions, which failed to receive the requisite 2/3 majority of the Synod Fathers, Francis ordered them included in the acts of the Phony Synod for its second session in October 2015.
And now this prelate in the grip of lunacy — there is no other word for it — seriously proposes that the Church give her blessing to people who habitually engage in sodomy. Just look at the man and then recall Sister Lucia’s repeated reference to “diabolical disorientation” among the members of the hierarchy, which is undoubtedly a focus of the integral Third Secret of Fatima.
But diabolical disorientation is the most charitable explanation for Bode’s advocacy of such an abominable evil. Indeed, how does one reasonably avoid the conclusion that he is a knowing agent of ecclesial destruction, bent on eliminating any vestige of the authentic Catholic Faith? With good reason does Mathias von Gersdorff, a prominent German pro-life activist and author cited by Life Site News, observe on his blog that “The German progressivism does not wish a few things changed here and there, but it wishes to scrap the whole of Catholic teaching and to create a fundamentally new religion.” Bode’s suggestion that sodomitical unions receive the Church’s blessing signals an attempt to “introduce a new phase of destruction.” It would be Luther’s revenge, although even Luther would find it horrifying.
It should now be perfectly clear even to the most determined “normalists” that we are witnessing an eruption to the surface of the deepest forms of ecclesial corruption, and that this eruption has been unleashed through the mouth of the volcano that is “this disastrous papacy” and the ever-widening fissure in the human element of the Church that is Amoris Laetitia. When high-ranking prelates call for the blessing of sodomy, and the Pope does nothing to correct them but rather has opened the way to their audacious promotion of the most radical evil, how much longer can the hand of God be stayed?
I recall yet again the words of Our Lady of Akita, whose message Cardinal Ratzinger described as essentially the same as the Message of Fatima:
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!
“The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres… churches and altars sacked; the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.
“As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and priests.”
