DO NOT take Amoris Laetitiae seriously; Ignore it!

The Latin title of the post-synodal Apostolic Exhortation to be released this Friday is Amoris Laetitiae, which literally translates to "The Joy of Sex." The unholy see is insisting that the official English title is "The Joy of Love." 

Don't expect anything good out of this. This document is expected to not only open the door to divorced and civilly remarried Catholics to receive the sacraments (officially), but the implications could be much worse for anyone who is under the direct jurisdiction of the bishops. For example, this document could include:
  • The recognition of gay and lesbian couples as Catholics in good standing;
  • The requirement that priests officiate at weddings of cohabitating couples, interfaith couples, and gay and lesbian couples;
  • The requirement that priests and deacons baptize all infants regardless of the religious or marital situation of the parents;
  • The universal requirement that Catholic schools admit all children regardless of religion or sexual orientation of the students or parents/guardians;
  • The mandate of sex education in all Catholic schools;
  • The mandate that no one be denied the right to serve as a godparent, Confirmation sponsor, or bridesmaid or groomsman on account of gender, religion, or sexual orientation;
  • The mandate that everyone who requests Christian burial gets it. 
This is scary! 

Thank God Benedict XVI is still (barely) hanging on. Once he passes away I hope it is after Bergoglio. 

I did not remain a Catholic to accept modernist errors. 

I am the only Catholic in New England who publicly (via this blog) defends the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony and who can receive it. 


If you want to learn from a real theologian from relatively modern times about Holy Matrimony, read Three To Get Married by Bishop Sheen. I read it recently, and this belongs in every Pre-Cana class. The third person is God.
