¿Por qué fracasó el Papa Francisco en Chile? (Gloria TV vídeo)

Duración 3:12 minutos


Lack of Enthusiasm: The Chilean newspaper “La Tercera” published an article about the lack of enthusiasm during Pope Francis’ trip to Chile, although this is allegedly a Catholic country. For Francis’ Mass in Maquhue/Temuco 400.000 people were expected. About half of this number showed up. Francis’ meeting with the youth was another flop. His visit was also accompanied by violent attacks against the Church. Francis’ problem: He appeals to the peripheries, but for attending his Masses he would need Catholics.

Low Attendance: In another article La Tercera tried to explain the reasons for the low attendance of the faithful during Pope Francis’ visit in Chile. The first reason is, according to the paper, the fact that the Church in Chile is in a crisis with only 44% of the country’s population declaring themselves to be Catholics. However, this would still account for over 7 million Catholics, enough to fill the events with Pope Francis. La Tercera did not mention the true reason for the low attendance: Pope Francis is mainly popular in circles which care little about the Church.

Mortal Sin: The news-page of the German bishops <> continues campaigning for a blessing for homosexuals living in pseudo-marriages. According to Catholic doctrine, gay pseudo-marriages constitute mortal sin. The portal quoted the dean of Limburg, Father Johannes zu Eltz, who wishes to have guidelines for liturgical blessings of homosexuals and bigamists. According to Eltz this blessing should express a mutual "responsibility" of the mortal sinners for each other. Eltz even uses the pretext that such blessings would reduce the danger to confuse marriages with homosexual pseudo-marriage. But in fact, the opposite would be the case.

The Reason for the Crack-Down: Hilary White suspects on her blog that Pope Francis’ crack-down on the formerly Sovereign Military Order of Malta was aimed at the effective suppression of its religious aspect in order to transform it into a secular medical NGO, run by the secularist German faction and their banker friends. According to White, Francis has ordered the knights to accept no more vocations until the constitutions are re-written.
