“Perhaps Soon We Will Have to Call Upon Saint Peter, to Denounce the Robber Synod”


Don Nicola: “Stalinist Methods” are in use in Rome

(Rome) The well-known liturgist Don Nicola Bux criticized last week the dismissal of respected moral theologians and the completion of the chairs of moral theology at the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Marriage and Family. Don Bux accuses those in the Vatican of using "Stalinist methods". Those who have the say today in the Church, according to the liturgist, "pastoralize the doctrine and dogmatize the pastoral.”

There is a paradox in the Church: while dialogue is promoted externally, the dictatorship is set up inside. The well-known liturgical expert compares  Amazon Synod convened for October with the robber synod of Ephesus.

Don Nicola Bux commented in a letter to Vaticanist Marco Tosatti, which he published last Thursday.

Dear Director, 
In the context of recent developments at the Pontifical Institute for Marriage and Family Studies, it is important to note the backwardness of the Church compared to the Middle Ages, when the theological disputes and conflicts between Franciscans and Dominicans took place on the basis that of whoever the had the best arguments. Meanwhile, we arrived at Stalinist methods with kid gloves. There is no argument and no more dispute in the Church. If one does not think as the boss, one is identified, cataloged and excluded. This is the damaging effect of the ideology of dialogue, which fits as long as one thinks the same as the one who preaches it.
To confirm pluralism and synodality, we now have the dismissal of ordinary professors, whose ideological reasons have deprived then of their chairs.
What would happen at any other university if that happened?
What academic prestige will remain at the Institute of John Paul II? The question is not only whether it will continue to be a university institution inspired by John Paul II, but whether it will even be a university institution at all. 
All this weighs heavily on the Rector as a man of the Academy, since he is in charge of this operation. He certainly did not act on it but on higher orders.
All this weighs heavily on the Rector as a man of the Academy, since he is in charge of this operation. He certainly did not act on it but on higher orders. 
In a brutal way, or with baseless reasons, it happens in seminaries, faculties, and Roman congregations and dicasteries. 
The paradox is that ecumenical and interreligious dialogue spreads outward, while the dictatorship of unified thought prevails internally.
Many ask themselves - always in the name of synodality and pluralism - should not the confrontation of all baptized be promoted, especially among all categories of theologians? A confrontation that Catholic thought has as a point of reference, according to the maxim of St. Vincent de Lerins: “Always, everywhere, and believed by all"?
Maybe the time will come when we have to get up and make our way against the whole world to St. Peter to denounce the new "Latrocinium Ephesinum". I want to explain that. The Second Council of Ephesus of 449, which became known among Catholic and Orthodox theologians as Latrocinium Ephesi or robber's synod of Ephesus (in Greek Ληστρική της Εφέσου), was a Christological Church meeting. Because of the resulting conflicts over the person of Jesus Christ and especially as a result of the conflicts after the Council of Chalcedon (451), the Christian churches were divided into Chalcedonian and pre-Chalcedonian churches. 
It seems that after the next synod, Jesus Christ will be outdated, because the Amazon and some other "European regions" no longer seem to need it for their salvation because it fits as it is. In the meantime, the "moral theology" of marriage and family, which John Paul II defended and propagated, and paid for it in person, is outdated. So we are in the harbingers of the Ephesian betrayal. 
So let us follow Benedict XVI, who expressed his solidarity with the deposed rector, and imagine Pope Francis, how annoyed he is, despite all his calls for pluralism, parrhesia and synodality. 
So let's take cover, especially teachers and students of the John Paul II Institute, before it's too late. All According to Saint Peter! 
Best regards
in Domino Iesu

"It seems that after the next synod, Jesus Christ will be outdated, because the Amazon and some other "European regions" no longer seem to need it for their salvation because it fits as it is."

One thing we know for sure, the Francis Church is abandoning Christ’s message while creating a platform for a pantheistic religion of the New World Order. Like Francis himself it all must be rejected as it is nothing more than an abandonment of both God, Man and the Catholic Church.

Let us call upon Saint Peter now for his intervention to stop this madman usurper of his throne.

"It seems that...." Conjecture.
"One thing we know for sure,..." Private, unsubstantiated opinion and who's "we"?
The rest is vent and sanctimonious pouting.
Well done again, Mr Dowd.

Michael Dowd said...

Thanks PW. It is always good to hear from a fan. Happy assumption (Assumption) day!

Tancred said...

The bathhouse take...

PW said...

Yes, for someone who claims that he doesn't read books, newspapers or otherwise keeps in touch with what is happening in the world, Dowd is a never ending source of informed commentary, isn't he?

Tancred said...

As opposed to you claiming to read books and study matters deeply. I’m so blessed to be graced with your presence.

PW said...

You're welcome.
And do have a word with the Dowd chap. A good book or two might expand his horizons.

susan said...

and PW Feybriel is a never ending source of mental flatulence.

PW said...

So, Yeehaaww, the resident anal retentive continues to linger like an old pong.

susan said...

and you would know from 'old pongs' feybriel....you just can't help but out yourself with every post.

Pathetic loser, no friends, blog stalker. nice.

So much for John Paul the Great’s Theology of the Bawdy being
the antidote to the Modernism infecting the Church.

PW said...

Yes, she's a frightening example of what happens when a virulent Gnostic form of religiosity takes possession of a person.

Tancred said...

That’s rich, Gnosticism and Freemasonry are your things.

Tancred said...

Books written by Luise Rinser’s boyfriend, the Benedictine Abbot of Milwaukee, the Trappist Buddhist and the Archbishop who probably forgot a dead hooker outside his chancery window, aren’t good.

Michael Dowd said...

PW.

Do you believe Vatican II made the Catholic better or worse?

PW said...

Mr Dowd, would it help to make you a better Christian if I told you?

JBQ said...

"Mental flatulence" is now added to my vocabulary courtesy of Susan.

Tancred said...

Too bad Gaybrielle is more interested in talking about himself than actually talking about the topic the adults are
discussing.
