Caution Francis Speaks: "Ecumenism of Charity?"

Caution Francis Speaks: "Ecumenism of Charity?"
Yet Another Subcategory of "ecumenism"  Vatican II NewSpeak. Would someone please put a muzzle on this heretic!

 Antipope Francis strikes again...

 

The Pope’s visit to Lund and the ecumenism of charity

Francis underlines that dialogue with other Christian denominations is first and foremost a path (not conversion!) that goes beyond theological controversies and finds a concrete expression in a common effort to help the suffering.
Francis’ visit to Sweden from Monday 31 October to 1 November is certainly an important step forward on an ecumenical journey that is not easy. This is especially true given the main reason for the visit: the commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation and the 50th anniversary of the beginning of a dialogue between Catholics and Lutherans. But, besides these considerations regarding the exceptional nature of this step, is must be acknowledged that the visit fits perfectly into a process that began with the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council. (DIABOLICAL)
Partly because of his experience in Buenos Aires, Francis places particular emphasis on the fact that dialogue with other Christian denominations is above all a path that goes beyond theological controversies and finds a concrete expression in a common effort to help the suffering, the poor. This does not mean downplaying the fruits of theological dialogue and the often arduous work carried out by experts. Steps towards unity have been taken, particularly in relation to the Orthodox and Evangelical Churches, as is attested for instance by the fundamental joint declaration on justification, signed in 1998. It means recognising that the work of theologians, commissions, and dialogue at the highest levels is simply not enough. Most importantly, if it remains isolated, then there is a risk that everything will be constantly and indefinitely postponed.

“The signs of the times spur us towards a common testimony in the growing fullness of truth and love,” John Paul II said in Mainz in 1980.

“Faith that is lived from deep within amid a secularized world is the most powerful ecumenical force that brings us together, guiding us towards unity in the one Lord,” Benedict XVI said during an address in Erfurt in 2011. How does one bear witness to a common baptism and faith in Christ? There is an “ecumenism of blood”,(Heresy!) which Francis often talks about and which Ratzinger mentioned in Erfurt when he recalled that the martyrs of the Nazi era, the Catholics and Lutherans killed by the Nazis “brought us together and prompted that great initial ecumenical opening”. This ecumenism of blood is perceived not only in the tragic condition of persecution Christians face in many countries afflicted by a “piecemeal World War III”, but also in the spirit of unity and fraternity that exists between the different denominations, where the followers of Christ are a scant minority.

While “the ecumenism of blood” is sadly a reality (NO IT ISNT!!), there is another ecumenism Francis insists on along the path taken by his predecessors. It involves working together and testifying love for the poor, the discarded, the suffering and immigrants. Francis’ insistence on this and his emphasis on touching “Christ’s flesh” in those who suffer, is not a sociological consequence, something extra, a non-essential option in a person’s profession of the faith. Put simply, it is not an optional application of the Church’s social doctrine but is at the very heart of faith, an essential part of the Christian faith. It is something that is intimately linked to the evangelical message. Because we encounter the face of Jesus in those who are hungry, thirsty, naked, foreign or in prison, as we read in chapter 25 of Matthew’s Gospel. And so, Christians, sinners who are constantly regenerated through divine mercy which sustains the world, reach out to the poor, not in order to “bring” them something, but to let themselves be evangelised as they encounter Jesus in the face and flesh of the poor person.

Faced, for example, with the reality of immigrants and refugees fleeing wars in which the West held and continues to hold grave responsibilities, the Christian cannot help but see the faces of that girl from Nazareth and her husband, who were forced to flee a foreign (but welcoming) country to save the life of a child who was born in the precarious surroundings of a stable. The ecumenical gestures of “détente”, cordiality, fraternity as well as the precious work of theologians and expert commissions are all pieces of a mosaic the most important pieces of which, however, are entrusted to the testimony of Christians from each of the Churches. “By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you love one another.” “Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me”.
