“In this light, I read Chapter IV of the instrumentum, grafs 51-63, with keen interest. The chapter does a good job of describing the anthropological and cultural challenges facing our young people. In fact, describing today’s problems, and noting the need to accompany young people as they face those problems, are strengths of the instrumentum overall. But I believe graf 51 is misleading when it speaks of young people as the “watchmen and seismographs of every age.” This is false flattery, and it masks a loss of adult trust in the continuing beauty and power of the beliefs we have received.

In reality, young people are too often products of the age, shaped in part by the words, the love, the confidence, and the witness of their parents and teachers, but more profoundly today by a culture that is both deeply appealing and essentially atheist.

The elders of the faith community have the task of passing the truth of the Gospel from age to age, undamaged by compromise or deformation. Yet too often my generation of leaders, in our families and in the Church, has abdicated that responsibility out of a combination of ignorance, cowardice and laziness in forming young people to carry the faith into the future. Shaping young lives is hard work in the face of a hostile culture. The clergy sexual abuse crisis is precisely a result of the self-indulgence and confusion introduced into the Church in my lifetime, even among those tasked with teaching and leading. And minors — our young people — have paid the price for it.

Finally, what the Church holds to be true about human sexuality is not a stumbling block. It is the only real path to joy and wholeness. There is no such thing as an “LGBTQ Catholic” or a “transgender Catholic” or a “heterosexual Catholic,” as if our sexual appetites defined who we are; as if these designations described discrete communities of differing but equal integrity within the real ecclesial community, the body of Jesus Christ. This has never been true in the life of the Church, and is not true now. It follows that “LGBTQ” and similar language should not be used in Church documents, because using it suggests that these are real, autonomous groups, and the Church simply doesn’t categorize people that way.”

“For 2,000 years, the Magisterium has been the Church teaching. It’s what the word Magisterium means, coming from magister — teacher. The individual members, learning from the Magisterium the sweet divine truths, conform their lives to these truths, over time, with the assistance of grace through the sacraments, to become more like Christ. Cupich is saying the Church has had it backwards for 2,000 years. The people, families specifically, in their mortally sinful situations, they become the teachers of the bishops.”

“His view of the Church, the Catholic Church, the universal Church, shifts the Church to a non-universal Church where everyone makes the decisions for himself guided by his own interpretations of whatever the Holy Spirit sticks in his head. None of this is Catholic. In fact, it is the very definition of Protestantism. So yes, to go from being the Catholic Church to no longer the Catholic Church is the most prime example of a paradigm shift that could be imagined.


A terror for souls.

BLOGGER’S NOTE:  Father James Martin may I make a correction?  Someday Ex-Gays will be Saints in the Church.  If our Lord willed that those who have suffered in the past and now in the present merited Purgatory or Heaven because they despised their disorder I’m with the Christ.

This blogger supports the true teachings of the Catholic Church and stands with those who are Ex-Gay and the Courage Apostolate. 

I also have compassion for those who oppose the teaching but I do not agree with you.

At this time Father James Martin should be removed from the Vatican.

BLOGGER’S NOTE:  I haven’t heard from the Liberals in the church not one piece of biblical teaching on what Jesus taught about marriage.  What if the Holy Spirit is already speaking right now in favor of what Jesus taught us.  The Pope can’t teach error and he cannot be swayed by what we say which is already written in the Truth.
