THE DANGER OF "GNOSIS" AND NOT BEING CLEAR
Yet the Holy Father seems to be saying something else this morning at is his Mass at the Vatican Motel 6 where His Holiness lives. He seems to be saying that he has some inside "gnosis" (knowledge) about Jesus and His surprises. But the Holy Father isn't saying what this "gnosis" is or where we can find it. There is no description of what His Holiness means. So we are left to our own devises and our own "gnosis."
This is part of the Holy Father's message this morning:
"I ask myself: today we Christians who know the faith, the catechism, who go to Mass every Sunday, we Christians, we pastors are we content with ourselves? Because we have organized everything and do not need new visits from the Lord ... And the Lord continues to knock on the door of each one of us and of His Church, the pastors of the Church. Yes, the door of our hearts, of the heart of the Church, of her pastors will not open: and the Lord weeps, even today".
My Final comment: I am left scratching my head and asking, whatever does Pope Francis mean? What does His Holiness know that I don't know? what is His Holiness secret knowledge about so many in the Church who cause our Lord to weep today?????
Is it sin?
Is it the acceptance of sin?
Is it adultery?
Is it the acceptance of adultery?
Is it divorce?
Is it the acceptance of divorce?
Is it Holy Communion?
Is it the reception of Holy Communion in a state of mortal sin?
Is it the poor?
Is it homosexuality?
Is it the acceptance of the gay agenda?
Is it abortion?
Is it the church's embrace of pro choice ideologies?
Is it the poor who aren't given the truths of the Church?
Just what is it and are we now entering a new phase of the heresy of gnosticism?
