Liberal Jesuits Open Cardinal Newman Institute in Uppsala Sweden

Editor: The Cardinal Newman Insitute, run by Jesuits, is seeking donors and hope for financial support from conservatives who believe they're running a conservative locale. You might think this is a cause for rejoicing, but we'd encourage you to be cautious. Don't be fooled.

This weekend, after hundreds of years, a Catholic University will open its doors in Sweden. The "Newman Institute" in Uppsala.

Stockholm [kath.net/KAP] This weekend after centuries a Catholic University will open its doors in Sweden. The "Newman Institute" in Uppsala will, according to the school authorities, be the first Catholic educational establishment since the Protestant Revolt in the 16th Century, which has the authority, to issue academic degrees. In 1477 Pope Sixtus IV. had founded the last university in Uppsala, till now. The Jesuit directed University celebrates its opening on Sunday afternoon with three lectures, which will each explore Christendom of the past.

The English Cardinal John Henry Newman (1801-1890), who gives his name to the new institute, is among the most amazing figures in the Church History of the 19th Century. When he turned 44, the Anglican theological became a Catholic. In 1847 he was ordained a priest, and was named Cardinal by Leo XIII in 1879. The beatification of Newman on the 19th of September in Birmingham is a highpoint and completion of the Holy Father's trip to the United Kingdom.

  1. Indeed, don't be fooled. Thank you for posting this warning!

    I am a Swedish Catholic and it is also my opinion that the Church here in Sweden has suffered a great deal from these jesuits for several decades now. Over here, they seem to be up for anything: they organize little girls to serve at the altar instead of boys, they have holy communion distributed by lay people, chalice included. They don't offer teaching of traditional Church doctrine but rather continue on the line of the new theology. The professors at their newly founded institute are mainly modernists, apart from one Opus Dei, which is about as conservative as it gets.

    I leave you with one example of a course this Newman institute will offer next spring:
    The course will be about an era of great significance for 20th century theology within the Catholic Church as well as other traditions. Theologians who will be studied are among others Marie-Dominique Chenu, Yves Congar, Henri de Lubac, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and Michel de Certeau. How these theologians evolved and their respective central works will be studied. Participants will practice their ability to describe both the changing in theological thinking and the relation between theology and contemporary events.

    If you think I am just joking, have the following translated: http://www.newman.se/Kurser/modern_fransk_teol_v11.htm

  2. The fact the Roman Catholic Church has opened a university in Sweden is a spectacular religious achievement. The fact the Jesuit curriculum is lousy is par for the course.

  3. No idea how it is a spectacular achievement. Its another modernist money pit and the Jesuits should be held accountable.

    There is other information we'd like to *share* but can't, because of the source, but this is a bad place, and we thank the good Swede above who's helped to confirm this.

  4. From the sounds of this blog, Vatican II is an awful, liberal event that should be shunned?

    Are you sure you all are Catholic?

  5. Vatican II was shunned by most of the people who teach at Jesuit Schools and they appear to enjoy the approbation of the Church as well as substantial renumeration for their troubles.

    On more than one occasion, I've heard them urging the Church's destruction.

    So, before you wag your reproving woman's hand, look in the mirror.
