URGENT: Tell your bishop to prohibit the “blessing” of sinful relationships in your diocese

  • 23,511
 

Pope Francis and Cardinal Victor Manuel Fernández have issued a text allowing “blessings for couples in irregular situations and for couples of the same sex” in contradiction to the unchangeable Catholic teaching that the Church cannot bless sinful relationships.

We must petition our bishops to prohibit such “blessings” in our dioceses, lest this abomination in God's eyes take hold at the local level.

Violating Divine Revelation and the constant Magisterial teaching of the Catholic Church, the Declaration “Fiducia Supplicans” allows Catholic clergy to provide “blessings” for same-sex couples, along with the norms outlined by the cardinal and the Pope.

Such relationships cannot receive God's blessing however, since they entail objectively sinful acts that contradict God's Word.

Indeed, in his first letter to the Corinthians, St. Paul states that homosexual actions are sinful, explaining that “neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers” will “inherit the kingdom of God,” but rather, according to his letter to the Romans, those who practice homosexuality will receive “in their own persons the due penalty for their error.”

Under the leadership of Cardinal Ratzinger in 1986, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) admonished bishops to ensure they, and any “pastoral programme” in the diocese are “clearly stating that homosexual activity is immoral”: 

But we wish to make it clear that departure from the Church’s teaching, or silence about it, in an effort to provide pastoral care is neither caring nor pastoral. Only what is true can ultimately be pastoral. The neglect of the Church’s position prevents homosexual men and women from receiving the care they need and deserve.

Therefore special concern and pastoral attention should be directed toward those who have this condition, lest they be led to believe that the living out of this orientation in homosexual activity is a morally acceptable option. It is not.

As recently as 2021, the CDF stated clearly that the Church does not “power to give the blessing to unions of persons of the same sex.”

The CDF stated that it is “not licit to impart a blessing on relationships, or partnerships, even stable, that involve sexual activity outside of marriage (i.e., outside the indissoluble union of a man and a woman open in itself to the transmission of life), as is the case of the unions between persons of the same sex.”

We must oppose Pope Francis' error before this diabolical practise takes hold in our parishes and dioceses.
