The Late Patriarch Martini of Milan, Reuters, and the Anti-Catholic Propaganda


“To use the words of the Fathers of Trent, it is certain that the Church ‘was instructed by Jesus Christ and His Apostles and that all truth was daily taught it by the inspiration of the Holy Ghost.’ Therefore, it is obviously absurd and injurious to propose a certain ‘restoration and regeneration’ for her as though necessary for her safety and growth, as if she could be considered subject to defect or obscuration or other misfortune. Indeed these authors of novelties consider that a ‘foundation may be laid of a new human institution,’ and what [St.] Cyprian detested may come to pass, that what was a divine thing ‘may become a human church.'”
– Pope Gregory XVI, Mirari vos (On the Condemnation of Liberalism),
15 August 1832
Reuters, in its September 3 article “Late Cardinal represented Catholic Church that might have been,” and Carlo Martini, in his final interview remarking that “the Catholic Church was 200 years out of date,” fraudulently equate Liberal Catholicism with that Creed of which the Eternal Word Himself is the author (Heb. 12.2). Their lie consists in this:the Catholic Church as a human institution should, if it were to be regarded by man as still relevant to his life,  serve man’s interests (anyways, all directed toward his ‘happiness’ which is but the same end or purpose God has ordained for man after all) which change with the passing of time and, note ‘Liberal Catholicism’ in its essence,  it must adopt for its norm whatever holds ‘true’ and ‘good’ in the 1789 Declaration of the Rights of Man, notwithstanding the revolutionary spirit breathing upon its proponents who are but sworn enemies of Christ and of His Church! On the contrary, the Catholic Church, the body of Christ, is BOTH human AND divine – like her Head Who is the God-Man – with the human element in the service of the divine: bound to the divine service by the Commandments, by the “pompous” ceremonies and vestments fit for the Worship of His Sovereign Divine Majesty, by dogmatic formulations, and by strict moral precepts. Now, since the Eternal Truth made flesh (Jn. 1.14), the very principle and foundation upon which is built the constitution of the Church – bound and subject to Christ the Sovereign – can never be “out of date,” for Jesus Christ, yesterday, today; and the same for ever(Heb. 13.8), the “radical change” advocated by Martini – ostensibly in the name of ‘concern’ for the Church’s vitality – and spread abroad by the secular press runs into this: “… the Catholic Church that might have been dead– for the Catholic Church can never be subjected to a “radical” transformation, tantamount to mutation, in her monarchical constitution, in her Rite of Divine Worship, in her dogmatic formulations, and in her moral norms; her being overturned may only be wished for or even almost realized as accomplished but the gates of hell shall not prevail against [her] (Mt. 16.18).  Martini’s and Reuter’s agenda is nothing but the acceptance among Catholics of that anti-Catholic propaganda behind the great red dragon’s diabolical craft not only of ape-ing God but also His Church by means of a counterfeit Catholic Church (cf., our post “The Year that was 1929”), resembling the Church by retaining some of its trappings and even using her institutions, to make mockery of her: “See, the Catholic Church is not divine. ‘Are [you] afraid?’ It’s now high time to ‘rouse [yourselves]’ and defy her ‘out of date’ mentality on gender and sexuality.”

Martini, a wolf in the trappings of a Catholic prince, with Pope Benedict XVI

Martini was an openly-avowed ‘Liberal’. The ‘Catholic Church’ he represented could only be a figment of the perverted mind of “the worst enemies of the Church… these liberal ‘Catholics’” (Blessed Pope Pius IX, in Fr. P. Kramer, ed., The Devil’s Final Battle). Let us not be deceived, for such false apostles are deceitful workmen, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ: and no wonder: for Satan himself transformeth himself into an angel of light (2 Cor. 11.13-14), but a good minister of Christ Jesus, nourished up in the words of Faith, and of the good doctrine… (1 Tim. 4.6).

Pope Pius IX) – pastor of Milan: “A man of God… and a faithful pastor of the Church…” Mater Immaculata de Monte Carmelo, Stella Maris, ora pro nobis!
