In what has provoked in my gut the urge to vomit not unlike that which I felt that evening in March 2013 when Jorge Bergoglio emerged on the balcony of St. Peter's Basilica, the Bishop of Rome has blasphemed God the Father; accusing Him of being "unjust" for sending "His Son to a Cross!"
In rambling statements filled with incoherent blather upon a visit with patients and staff to the Paul VI Audience Hall from Rome's Bambino Gesù Children's Hospital, Bergoglio not only blasphemed the Most Holy Trinity, but insulted doctors insinuating "corruption" stating in front of children dying of cancer that, "corruption is the worst form" of that terrible disease, thus not only insulting the doctors but ridiculing the children's own suffering.
La Stampa's Vatican Insider has the full report:
"The Pope responded to three more questions in his speech. Answering a question put to him by Valentina Vanzi, a nurse in multi-speciality paediatrics, who asked why children suffer, he said: “I have no answer to this question. Nor has Jesus given an answer to these words. There is no answer to this question, all we can do is look at the crucifix and let it give us the answer”. The Pope added: “is God unjust? He was unjust with his son, he sent him to the cross, if we follow this logic then we have to say this. But it is our human existence, our flesh, that suffers in that child and when one suffers, people do not speak, they weep and pray in silence.” Francis then focused on the precious role nurses play, telling a personal joke: “ When I was 21 I had very serious pneumonia and we didn’t know what it was, we thought it was the flu, then I had very high fever so I was taken to hospital and they drew a lot of fluid from my lung. The doctor prescribed one million units of penicillin and 500 thousand units of streptomycin and then left. But the nun who was a nurse, told the other nurse: make it three million and one million, because she had a good nose for what the situation was. You have a good nose for illness, I’m not criticising doctor’s, they are great eh? But because of their closeness to the patient, nurses have a special ability to accompany and heal, because of their closeness.”
Is he that stupid? Is he that uneducated?
Perhaps, by looking at Holy Scripture, we can best rebuke this disgusting blasphemer on the matter of his commentary on God the Father.
5 For let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6 Who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7 But emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men, and in habit found as a man.
8 He humbled himself, becoming obedient unto death, even to the death of the cross.
9 For which cause God also hath exalted him, and hath given him a name which is above all names:
10 That in the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those that are in heaven, on earth, and under the earth:
11 And that every tongue should confess that the Lord Jesus Christ is in the glory of God the Father.
11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. 12 The hired hand is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it. 13 The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep.
14 “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me—15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. 17 The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again. 18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”
Jesus gave up His life. He, "laid it down" and then He "took it up again." The Father loved Him because of this! The Father did not sacrifice Him, Jesus sacrificed Himself, willingly, humbly. He was slaughtered as a lamb, the true Lamb of Sacrifice.
On December 20, 2013, he spoke to Vatican Radio, where they report:
The Mother of Jesus was the perfect icon of silence. From the proclamation of her exceptional maternity at Calvary. The Pope said he thinks about “how many times she remained quiet and how many times she did not say that which she felt in order to guard the mystery of her relationship with her Son,” up until the most raw silence “at the foot of the cross”.
“The Gospel does not tell us anything: if she spoke a word or not… She was silent, but in her heart, how many things [she] told the Lord! ‘You, that day, this and the other that we read, you had told me that he would be great, you had told me that you would have given him the throne of David, his forefather, that he would have reigned forever and now I see him there!’ Our Lady was human! And perhaps she even had the desire to say: ‘Lies! I was deceived!’ John Paul II would say this, speaking about Our Lady in that moment. But she, with her silence, hid the mystery that she did not understand and with this silence allowed for this mystery to grow and blossom in hope.”
