FRANCISDOCTRINE: Being Faithful Involves the Capacity for Change

FRANCISDOCTRINE: Being Faithful Involves the Capacity for Change 
MALACHI 3:6  For I am the Lord, and I change not

“Being faithful involves the capacity for change,” Pope Francis said November 23, 2017, in a video message for 7th Festival of the Social Doctrine of the Church.The festival runs November 23-26 in Verona, with the theme “Fidelity is Change.”




“The Word of God helps us to distinguish between the two “faces” of change: the first is trust, hope, openness to the new; the second is the difficulty of leaving certainties to head for the unknown,” the Holy Father said. He continued: “Indeed, it makes us feel calmer to stay in our enclosure, to conserve, to repeat the usual words and gestures – this makes us feel more secure – rather than to go out, to depart and to start up new processes.”

Text of the Video Message of the Holy Father
Dear brothers and sisters,
I greet you all, participants in the seventh Festival of the Social Doctrine of the Church, which this year is entitled “Fidelity is Change”. This expression, which intentionally causes a certain logical “surprise”, leads us to consider that, in reality, being faithful involves the capacity for change.
Let us think of the experience of Abraham, whom the Bible shows to us as a model of faith. When he was already elderly, God said to him, ““Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing” (Gen 12: 1-2). To be faithful, Abraham had to change, to depart. The Word of God helps us to distinguish between the two “faces” of change: the first is trust, hope, openness to the new; the second is the difficulty of leaving certainties to head for the unknown. Indeed, it makes us feel calmer to stay in our enclosure, to conserve, to repeat the usual words and gestures – this makes us feel more secure – rather than to go out, to depart and to start up new processes.
Let us ask ourselves, then, what happens if we keep our faith in God and man. We have seen in the story of Abraham the effect of the Lord’s calling: his life changed radically, he entered into a new story, unexpected horizons opened up to him, with new skies and new lands. When one responds to God, one always activates a process: something unexpected happens that leads us where we would never have imagined. This is important: a process is always activated, one goes ahead, one does not occupy spaces, one initiates processes.
Fidelity to man means coming out of oneself to meet the real person, his face, his need for tenderness and mercy, to make him come out of anonymity, from the peripheries of existence. Fidelity to man means opening the eyes and the heart to the poor, the sick, to those who have no work, to the many who are wounded by indifference and by an economy that discards and kills, to open oneself to refugees fleeing violence and war. Fidelity to man means defeating the centripetal force of one’s own interests, selfish interests, and making space for passion for the other, rejecting the temptation of desperation and keeping alive the flame of hope.
In such a way, fidelity to God and to man converge in a dynamic movement that takes the form of change in ourselves and change of reality, overcoming immobility and convenience, creating space and work for the young and for their future. Because change is healthy not only when things are going badly, but also when everything works well and we are tempted to make ourselves comfortable with the results obtained. Enlarging our service, participating in other projects, broadening the spaces of creativity, means welcoming the challenge of change precisely to remain faithful to God and to man. It seems to be a contradiction, but fidelity is this path that initiates processes and does not allow us to remain in the spaces that defend us from any creativity, spaces that in the end are of the type: “it has always been done this way”.
In sending you this brief message, I address a fraternal greeting to His Excellency Msgr. Zenti, bishop of Verona, city that hosts the Festival of the Social Doctrine of the Church, to Don Vincenzi and all his colleagues, speakers and volunteers. I hope that this initiative may contribute to inspiring and supporting the evangelizing mission of the Church in the world of work, the economy and politics.
I bless you, and I ask you, please. to pray for me. Thank you!

  6. The deceiver is so entrenched:
    The very very powerful/corrupt spill all their beans in:

    The Occult Technology of Power Conference

    It has that Georgia Guidestones Satanic vibe to it!

    "League of Shadows"

    Professor Q:
    "The so-called Left-Right political spectrum is our creation. In fact, it accurately reflects our

    careful, artificial polarization of the population on phony issues that prevents the issue of our power from arising in their minds.

    The Left supports civil liberties and opposes economic or entrepreneurial liberty.

    The Right supports economic liberty and opposes civil liberty.

    Of course neither can exist fully (which is our goal) without the other.

    We control the Right-Left conflict such that both forms of liberty are suppressed to the degree we require Our own liberty rests not on legal or moral "rights," but on our control of the government bureaucracy and courts which apply the complex,

    subjective regulations (CHANGE!!!)

    we dupe the public into supporting for our benefit...

    Innumerable meaningless conflicts to divert the attention of the public from our operations find fertile ground in the bitter hatreds of the Right/Left imbroglio.

    Right and Left are irreconcilable on racial policy, treatment of criminals, law enforcement, pornography, foreign policy, women's lib, and censorship to name just a few issues.

    Although censorship in the name of "fairness"

    has been useful in broadcasting and may yet be required in journalism, we generally do not take sides in these issues.

    Instead we attempt to prolong the conflicts by SUPPORTING BOTH SIDES as required.

    WAR, of course, is the ultimate diversionary conflict and the health of our system.

    WAR provides the perfect cover of emergency and crisis behind which we consolidate our power.

    Since nuclear war presents dangers even to us, more and more we have resorted to economic crisis, energy shortages, ecological hysteria, and managed political drama to fill the gap.

    Meaningless, brushfire wars, though, remain useful.

    We promote phony free enterprise on the RIGHT and phony democratic socialism on the LEFT.

    Thus, we obtain a

    "free enterprise" whose

    "competition" is carefully regulated by the

    bureaucracy we control and whose nationalized enterprises are controlled directly through our government.

    In this way we maintain a society in which the basis of our power, legal titles to property and money, remain secure, but in which the peril of free, unregulated competition is avoided and popular sovereignty is nullified.

    The democratic process is a sitting duck for our money power.

    Invariably we determine the candidates of the major parties and then proceed to pick the winners.

    Any attempts at campaign reforms simply put the rules of the game more firmly under our government's control..."

    ...and UP is DOWN!

    Like this:
    Satanism grows through the perversion of Religions and through the creation of new Religions. After having seen them grow up. After having seen if they have legs. They are then let go, or infil-traited, funded and supported.

    New religions like Protestantism, Calvinism, Mormonism with their polygamy, Pentecostals, Jehovaha's Witnesses, Children of God whose most famous stars are River and Joaquin Phoenix, and of course Sabattean Frankists are tested, and then used by the Satanists as seen fit..

    In "Wise as Serpents" by Springmeier he details the Satanic creation of this new religion, the Masonic background of Jehovaha's Witnesses founder William Taze Russell and the fact that Russell is a bloodline (See, "The Thirteen Bloodlines of the Illuminati by Springmeier) of the British Russell Illuminati making their money from Drug running to Hong Kong and China, a Russell creating the Sodomic Skull and Bones Society at Yale University and having Satanist Lord Bertrand Russell amongst their alumni.

    Calvin's previous name was Cohen as a Frankist Marrano Jew.

    Protestants were founded as a counterveiling force against Catholicism, after the Siege of Cambrai in 1507, by the Satanic Venetians whose Drug Running, Banking and Slave trading Venetian Empire is in a direct line from the Satanic Babylonian Empire to the Drug Running, Banking and Slave trading Roman Empire. Venetian Agent Luther was under the aegis of Venetian Cardinal Contarini..."
