IS IT AN ORTHODOX CHURCH THAT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SEX ABUSE SCANDAL IN CHILE AND ELSEWHERE?

Pope wants ‘prophetic Church’ in Chile, but what does it mean?


I thought this article from Crux would clear things up. But it doesn't. At first the blame is placed on St. John Paul II, then on Cardinal Ratzinger, then on Cardinal Sadono, and eventually Pope Benedict in terms of orthodox bishops who were chosen by them.

But then the article blames the heterodox who make the Church into a political society to work for the material progress of the poor, an NGO.

then blame is placed on Pope Francis for exacerbating the whole mess with an ignorant arrogance.

But then the elephant in the room is kind of ignored. The Church became self referential with its focus on itself rather than on Christ.

For the past 50 years we have worshipped the changes of Vatican II and Vatican II itself. We worship dialogue, religious liberty, ecumenism and dialogue with non believers, agnostics and atheists. We worship inclusivity, women in ministry, liturgical chaos and a loss of Catholic identity, spirituality and devotion. We worship the so called new and improved.

In other words we worship confused heterodoxy!

another meaningless buzzword. Shows a lot of intellectual heft (sarc)

What, indeed, does he mean by ‘prophetic’? What was the the least bit obscure about the Will or Law of God Almighty that gives the least bit of shade to what went on in Chile or South America? Or Ireland or Boston, for that matter?

"Prophetic" means announcing the presence of the Kingdom of God in the world.

OT Prophets spoke for God, announcing His will, proclaiming his law, calling the people to live according to the covenant.

John the Baptist, the last prophet, announced the presence among us of the Word of God in the flesh, Jesus Christ.

Baptized as Priests, Prophets, and Kings, we are to continue proclaiming the Word of God in the way we live our lives.
