Coppersmith priests rev up for more disobedience - Zum zum zum!

This evil iniative began last month.
We pray for the Holy Father

and
the Church in Austria.


About 300 of Austria’s 4,200 priests
(a minority of 7.1%,
no doubt they are mostly old liberals from the 1960's era)
have pledged to take part in
Aufruf zum -zum zum!- Ungehorsam
(Call to Disobedience),

an initiative launched in June.

The Call to Disobedience manifesto cites
“the Roman refusal of a long-overdue Church reform
and the inaction of bishops.”

Dissenters who support the document pledge:


- to pray for Church reform at every liturgy, since “in the presence of God there is freedom of speech”
- not to deny the Holy Eucharist to “believers of good will,” including non-Catholic Christians and those who have remarried outside the Church
- to avoid offering Mass more than once on Sundays and holy days and to avoid making use of visiting priests--instead holding a “self-designed” Liturgy of the Word
- to describe such a Liturgy of the Word with the distribution of Holy Communion as a “priestless Eucharistic celebration”; “thus we fulfill the Sunday obligation in a time of priest shortage”
- to “ignore” canonical norms that restrict the preaching of the homily to clergy
- to oppose parish mergers, insisting instead that each parish have its own individual leader, “whether man or woman”
- to “use every opportunity to speak out openly in favor of the admission of the married and of women to the priesthood” ...
All so much foolish talk endangering the salvation of souls.

Our Lord said:
I came down from heaven,
not to do my own will,
but the will of him that sent me.
(Jn. 6:38)

Time on Earth is running out.
Eternity approaches.
Soon death will come,
judgment will follow
and then
Heaven or Hell for ever.

Alexander the coppersmith
hath done me much evil:
the Lord will reward him according to his works:
(2 Timothy 4:14)

I wouldn't say they were liberals, which can be used for those with certain political views. I would say they are priests who have fallen in love with their own image, so they think that their ideas are God's ideas. They don't care about damaging the Church, as long as they get their own way.

At least it is less than one in twelve, perhaps things are improving!

This is really horrible....every time I think I have seen the worst in men and the world, something else comes along which is even worse! Holy Mary, protect Thy faithful children and the Church on earth and prevent us from falling prey to the demon who is acting through these "priests"! Divine Master, Who is a Model for us all ~ but especially for Thy priests ~ open the eyes of all before it is too late!

Some of these suggested things, such as ordaining married men to the priesthood and having only one Sunday Liturgy, are ancient and traditional in the Eastern Catholic Churches.

However, the "freedom of speech" in the Church is hogwash.

However, the only way to reform the Church is for each individual member to reform himself, and that means reform according to Tradition, such as the received fasting practices, prayer life, doctrine, and the like.

Obviously, this won't happen overnight.

Why would any priest (of the Western rite) oppose offering Holy Mass more than once on Sunday? It is like a man opposing his own lungs receiving air.
