Antipope Francis & False Charity
Francis' notion of what constitutes charity has been thoroughly refuted...
Francis is at it again, building walls and creating chaos within the Church. This time he's saying:
“…This rigidity [the solid Catholic Faith of young traditional
Catholics who prefer the Latin Mass] always hides something, insecurity
or even something else. Rigidity is defensive. True love is not rigid.”
Wrong. This liberal notion charity has already been thoroughly refuted.
In his classic work Liberalism is a Sin," Fr. Felix Sarda Y Salvany writes:
"Charity is a supernatural virtue which induces us to love God above all
things and our neighbors as ourselves for the love of God. Thus after
God, we ought to love our neighbor as ourselves, and this not in any
way, but for the love of God and in obedience to His law. And now what
is to love? Amare est velle bonum, replies the philosopher: "To love is
to wish good to him whom we love." To whom does charity command us to
wish good? To our neighbor, that is to say, not to this or that man only
but to everyone. What is that good which true love wishes? First of all
supernatural good; then goods of the natural order, which are not
incompatible with it. All this is included in the phrase "for the love
It follows, therefore, that we can love our neighbor, when displeasing
him, when opposing him, when causing him some material injury and even,
on certain occasions, when depriving him of life. All is reduced to this
in short: Whether in the instance where we displease, oppose or
humiliate him, it is or is not for his own good, or for the good of
someone whose rights are superior to his, or simply for the greater
service of God.
If it is shown, that in displeasing or offending our neighbor, we act
for his good, it is evident that we love him even when opposing or
crossing him. The physician cauterizing his patient or cutting off his
gangrened limb may none the less love him. When we correct the wicked by
restraining or by punishing them none the less do we love them. This is
charity and perfect charity. It is often necessary to displease or
offend one person, not for his own good, but to deliver another from the
evil he is inflicting. It is then an obligation of charity to repel the
unjust violence of the aggressor; one may inflict as much injury on the
aggressor as is necessary for the defense. Such would be the case
should one see a highwayman attacking a traveler. In this instance, to
kill, wound, or at least take such measures as to render the aggressor
impotent, would be an act of true charity.
The good of all good is the divine good, just as God is for all men the
neighbor of all neighbors. In consequence the love due to a man inasmuch
as he is our neighbor ought always to be subordinated to that which is
due to our common Lord. For His love and in His service we must not
hesitate to offend men. The degree of our offense towards men can only
be measured by the degree of our obligation to him. Charity is primarily
the love of God, secondarily the love of our neighbor for God's sake.
To sacrifice the first is to abandon the latter. Therefore to offend our
neighbor for the love of God is a true act of charity. Not to offend
our neighbor for the love of God is a sin. Modern Liberalism reverses this order. It imposes a false notion of
charity; our neighbor first, and, if at all, God afterwards."
This is why he puts the creature before the Creator. This is why he
condemns traditional Catholics as "rigid" and "sick," even while showing
great respect for active sodomized who demand a change in Church
teaching, such as Simon Cazal. See here.
If anyone is sick, it's Francis. See Romans 1: 25.
