MEDJUGORJE POPE FRANCIS' VERDICT....

MEDJUGORJE POPE FRANCIS' RULING....THE CALUMNY CHAPEL OF MEDJUGORJE

 
......Calumny.......
 

-Calumny of Apelles, Sandro Boticelli Circa 1495
 
....commentary on the painting....
 
On the right of the painting sits Midas with very large ears, extending his hand to Slander while she is still at some distance from him. Near him, on one side, stand two women—Ignorance and Suspicion. On the other side, Slander (Calumny) is coming up, a woman beautiful beyond measure, but full of malignant passion and excitement, evincing as she does fury and wrath by carrying in her left hand a blazing torch and with the other dragging by the hair a young man who stretches out his hands to heaven and calls the gods to witness his innocence. She is conducted by a pale ugly man who has piercing eye and looks as if he had wasted away in long illness; he represents envy. There are two women in attendance to Slander, one is Fraud and the other Conspiracy. They are followed by a woman dressed in deep mourning, with black clothes all in tatters—she is Repentance. At all events, she is turning back with tears in her eyes and casting a stealthy glance, full of shame, at Truth, who is slowly approaching.
 
-Lucian (On Calumny)
Calumny

Latin: (Calvor, to use artifice, to deceive)

“Etymologically any form of ruse or fraud employed to deceive another, particularly in judicial proceedings. In its more commonly accepted signification it means the unjust damaging of the good name of another by imputing to him a crime or fault of which he is not guilty. The sin thus committed is in a general sense mortal, just as is detraction..... Objectively, a calumny is a mortal sin when it is calculated to do serious harm to the person so traduced. Just as in the instance of wrongful damage to person or estate, so the calumniator is bound to adequate reparation for the injury perpetrated by the blackening of another's good name. He is obliged (1) to retract his false statements, and that even though his own reputation may necessarily as a consequence suffer. (2) He must also make good whatever other losses have been sustained by the innocent party as a result of his libellous utterances, provided these same have been in some measure (in confuso) foreseen by him. In canon law the phrase juramentum calumniae is employed to indicate the oath taken by the parties to a litigation, by which they averred that the action was brought and the defence offered in good faith.”

-Catholic Encyclopedia

..we see that in MEDJUGORJE serious harm has been meted upon the Authoritative character of two good Bishops at Mostar since many in the clergy as well as the lay faithful have openly ignored his directives....which is to desist from attributing any supernatural character to these messages...and to submit all messages to him.. the current 4th commission had not abrogated his authority on the matter & it is the Bishop’s canonical duty to guide the faithful and many have willfully ignored this duty to comply...thus spreading scandal in the Church and leading many to complicit membership of the CALUMNY CHAPEL OF MEDJUGORJE...



-Taking of Christ, Caravaggio 1602

..now if one is objective and uses reason along with faith in the articles and laws of the Church one is able if guided by Counsel (prudence or the execution of right reason guided by the HOLY SPIRIT)..one will see that the sin of detraction and calumny is being committed against the good BISHOP of Mostar as well as his predecessor....since many proponents of MEDJUGORJE willfully claim that he has never had any authority but only personal opinion equivalent in measure to any lay person to discern these visions or to vanquish the promotion of such phenomenon as a supernatural occurrence....indeed this is no true..since according to the Canons of Church of which God is the first efficient formal cause we see it written...

Can. 375 §1. Bishops, who by divine institution succeed to the place of the Apostles through the Holy Spirit who has been given to them, are constituted pastors in the Church, so that they are teachers of doctrine, priests of sacred worship, and ministers of governance.

Can. 377 §1. The Supreme Pontiff freely appoints bishops or confirms those legitimately elected

...so one sees the Bishop is entrusted with the duty to govern the faithful with whom he is entrusted...the Pope has appointed such Bishop and so if one defies a Bishop they are defying the Supreme Pontiff indirectly....true Bishops who compel us to sin are not to be obeyed since this would fall out of the spiritual jurisdiction of their authority..however at MEDJUGORJE two good Bishops have never given anyone permission to sin through a directive....and so according to the law of the Church we are bound to obey....indeed until the results of the 4th commission are made public the faithful are bound by the Bishop’s ruling as well as the Zadar Commission of not to make any pilgrimage a validation of supernatural events which call for further study if necessary....

Indeed the apparition itself has calumniated the Bishop which is quite quite a pity...from the chronicles of the apparition one reads...

"On 19 06 1983, being present the visionaries Jakov, Marija and Ivica, Our Lady appeared. After having answered some questions about the sick, by herself began to talk about you, Excellency. These are the thoughts that she told me : Tell the Bishop that I seek a quick conversion from him towards the happenings in Medjugorje, before it is too late. May he accept these events with plenty of love, understanding and great responsibility. I want him to avoid creating conflicts between priests and to stop publicizing their negative behaviours.
The Holy Father has given all bishops the duty to fulfill certain tasks in their respective dioceses. Among these, bishops are to solve problems and arguments. The bishop is the spiritual father of all the parishes in Hercegovina. For this reason I seek his conversion towards these events. I am sending my second-last warning. If what I seek does not come about, my judgement and the judgement of my Son await the Bishop. This means that he has not found the way to my Son Jesus
.

...what judgement could the Virgin be speaking of since private revelations are never required for eternal salvation since they are not part of the deposit of faith and no one is obliged to believe...indeed the Virgin by making this statement is damaging the Bishops freedom and repudiating his fidelity to the doctrines of the Church...in effect she is saying he is a BAD Catholic....and so giving the faithful more fodder with which to defame his good character...

As well one reads.....

"26 April 1982 Monday
The bishop - she says – doesn’t possess a scrap of the true love of God for those two.
With regard to the bishop, Ivica and Ivan should be peaceful because he has placed a too heavy load on their shoulders, only to get rid of them. In fact, he has begun with the younger (friars) and then more and more forward [...] The bishop is not acting according to the will of God, and can do what he wants. But one day justice will be done, of the sort you haven’t seen for a long time. I will begin to slowly tidy all this and many Friars will be irradiated by a great happiness.
"

..now only God is the just judge...for Our Lady to read the breadth and depth of one’s soul in such a way is incorrect theologically speaking ...true we can judge whether a person has acted in a sinful manner but we cannot judge the content of the soul...by this statement Our Lady has caused many people to have a negative impression of the Bishop who is only doing his duty according to God’s Church which is no sin...it is calumnious for Our Lady to speak this way and as Pope Francis said recently in a homily..calumny is a device of the DEVIL....



“Calumny aims to destroy the work of God, and calumny comes from a very evil thing: it is born of hatred. And hate is the work of Satan. Calumny destroys the work of God in people, in their souls. Calumny uses lies to get ahead.” Be in no doubt, he said: “Where there is calumny, there is Satan himself."

..many good Catholics have been deceived by the spin doctors who promote MEDJUGORJE as a place where supernatural apparitions occur ..these are effectively bypassing the lawful agents of the Church....some do this through lack of prudence some do this knowingly and so incur greater guilt before God....

..now let us all examine ourselves through a spirit of honesty and simplicity so that we do not let the vice of the devil implant itself insidiously in our soul...amen
