Most recents (10)

Leading up to the election

We had about 20 bishops on Twitter

Spiritually abusing the flock

Telling us to vote for Trump

This was a violation of our conscience

As they tried to convince us

To forget the Gospel and accept lies as truth

This must never happen again.
A year ago

The USCCB set the stage for more spiritual abuse

They ignored Pope Francis

Instead, they declared abortion "preeminent"

This made it impossible to dialogue with other Catholics, who just parroted "preeminent"

In their minds, we were "pro aborts" or "leftists" 2/2
He continues to stir the pot even after the election

Using his position to spiritually abuse Biden and Harris

As well as the rest of us

Who used our God-given conscience to vote for them, because we can clearly see that Trump is a danger to humanity itself.

"El proyecto del Nuevo Orden Mundial consiste en el establecimiento de la tiranía por parte de la masonería". #MonseñorViganò
"Podemos decir que el Nuevo Orden Mundial es la antítesis de la societas christiana , concreta la Civitas diaboli opuesta a la Civitas Dei , en la eterna lucha entre la Luz y la Oscuridad, el Bien y el Mal, Dios y Satanás". #MonseñorViganò

As a Catholic who loves Francis and the encyclical #FratelliTutti, I couldn't agree more with @benedictrogers's piece below, & the sense of being "heartbroken".

There's also an added sense of irony with respect to the human rights crisis facing #Uyghurs

foreignpolicy.com/2020/10/19/pop…
To some extent, the encyclical was inspired by the Grand Imam Ahmad Al-Tayyeb, who together with Pope Francis declared:

“God has created all human beings equal in rights, duties and dignity, and has called them to live together as brothers and sisters” (see paragraph 5).
Grand Imam Ahmad Al-Tayyeb is the current Grand Imam of al-Azhar and former president of al-Azhar University

In 2017 Uyghurs studying at al-Azhar were forcibly returned

This was one of the first high profile actions in the crackdown under Chen Quanguo

For those concerned with the “Catholic Vote,” consider the vision of #FratelliTutti with its call to universal fraternity and an emphasis on the common good, which excludes no one.
“Saint Francis expressed the essence of a fraternal openness that allows us to acknowledge, appreciate and love each person, regardless of physical proximity, regardless of where he or she was born or lives.” [1]
“Francis felt himself a brother to the sun, the sea and the wind, yet he knew that he was even close to those of his own flesh.” [2]

La mitad de mis amigos de twitter sois españoles; la otra mitad, latinoamericanos. En este día de la Hispanidad voy a tratar de aclarar una confusión muy común ¿Cuál es nuestra patrona: la Virgen del Pilar, la de Guadalupe o la Inmaculada? Lo deslío en el #Hilodelas3Vírgenes
En España, no cabe duda: el 12 de octubre es el Día del Pilar. Una devoción mariana tan extendida que es raro el pueblo que no cuente con una imagen de ella. Además, es un nombre muy común, centenares de miles de mujeres lo lleváis, ¡Felicidades!.
Al coincidir su fiesta el #12Octubre con el día de la llegada de Colón a América y día de la #FiestaNacional en España, muchos caen en el error de creerla patrona de España y de la Hispanidad, pero no es del todo así.

1/ Since there’s been some discussion about #FratelliTutti’s presentation of Saint Francis of Assisi, let me list various FACTS that undermine some MYTHS about this holy man in a Thread.👇
2/ As I recently noted, Saint Francis told the Muslim Sultan al-Kamil he was there to explicate the truth of the Christian faith and save the sultan’s soul. He was not there for diplomatic pleasantries. #FratelliTutti
3/ Saint Francis was “fiercely orthodox” on faith and morals: he thought that friars guilty of liturgical abuses or heresy should be remanded to higher church authorities. #FratelliTutti

Gospel: Today's Parable of the Good Samaritan (Lk 10) is beautifully exegeted in Pope Francis's encyclical #FratelliTutti: "The parable shows us how a community can be rebuilt by men and women who identify with the vulnerability of others....
....who reject the creation of a society of exclusion, and act instead as neighbors, lifting up and rehabilitating the fallen for the sake of the common good....
At the same time, it warns us about the attitude of those who think only of themselves and fail to shoulder the inevitable responsibilities of life as it is."

"The best way to dominate and gain control over people is to spread despair and discouragement, even under the guise of defending certain values."

Just digging into #FratelliTutti - but of course, this resonates.

"The organization of societies worldwide is still far from reflecting clearly that women possess same dignity & identical rights as men. We say one thing with words, but our decisions & reality tell another story."

Glad to see but this is true of the Church, too. #FratelliTutti
These two sentences from #FratelliTutti: "War, terrorist attacks, racial or religious persecution, and many other affronts to human dignity are judged differently, depending on how convenient it proves for certain, primarily economic, interests..."

I'm reading #FratelliTutti (FT below) today and I will post some good lines here, then a blog post with a summary / key quotes. Hopefully, this is helpful
"It is my desire that, in this our time, by acknowledging the dignity of each human person, we can contribute to the rebirth of a universal aspiration to fraternity. Fraternity between all men and women." -@Pontifex, Fratelli Tutti 8
"For decades, it seemed that the world had learned a lesson from its many wars and disasters, and was slowly moving towards various forms of integration." Fratelli Tutti 10

This introduces a repeated theme in Chapter 1: the need to see others as brothers & sisters over enemies.

Hi. I'm a #Catholic theologian. I'm up, I have coffee and I'm live tweeting #FratelliTutti : (1/n)
Creating this doc, "I have felt particularly encouraged by the Grand Imam Ahmad Al-Tayyeb, with whom I met in Abu Dhabi, where we declared that “God has created all human beings equal in rights, duties and dignity, and has called them to live together as brothers and sisters” (5)
"As I was writing this letter, the Covid-19 pandemic unexpectedly erupted, exposing our false securities..Anyone who thinks that the only lesson to be learned was the need to improve what we were already doing, or to refine existing systems and regulations, is denying reality."(7
