Notes re Communion

Ok let's first get rid of the category misattribution:
Holy Communion IS NOT MEDICINE - it is NOT A SACRAMENT OF MERCY.
The Blessed Sacrament is a food for those in a state of grace ie given unto those whom have already received mercy.
ie having received the medicine of the real sacrament of mercy - Confession.
Confession is the Sacramental manifestation of the 'field hospital' analogy. - and no matter how many times Pope Francis seeks to misrepresent Holy Communion as medicine for the sick rather than spiritual food for those in a state of grace? Catholic doctrine - and therefore the absolute inextricably linked pastoral praxis to actuate this doctrine will always remain the same - those in mortal sin CANNOT receive the Blessed Sacrament.
Secondly any reference to there being present insurmountable barriers which prevent anyone from stopping their sin now, repenting and receiving absolution with a firm purpose of amendment to not sin...
...together with any accusation against the Church that it is intolerably, mercilessly, legalistically COMMANDING THE IMPOSSIBLE - and unnecessarily and cruelly and unjustly excluding, ostracising and isolating those who "cannot immeditely change their lifestyles"....
...is not merely mendacious - it's heresy.
Primarily GOD commands that we repent now - and His Sacramental Grace within the confessional provides the absolution.
...and God DOES NOT COMMAND THE IMPOSSIBLE
Secondly nobody is ever forced to sin - nor do they ever need to continue to sin - nor is it ever impossible for them to leave a sinful life - immediately...
God always for everyone provides access to Sufficient Grace for anyone to receive and not sin or repent and be absolved and to change their lives...
There IS NO BARRIER - save personal free will refusing to accept that always-available Sufficient Grace.
To suggest there is any insurmountable obstacle to this grace and that no-one is ever free to immediately embrace and receive this grace - is the heresy of Gradualism.
Finally Pope Francis is inextricably eternally bound to the Deposit of Faith & Magisterial Moral teaching of Apostolic tradition and its defence, upholding and promotion throughout the Sensus fidelium making this manifest in creed, code and cult.
In Faith and Morals he is bound to Apostolic Tradition and its reiterated expounded defence by His Apostolic Predecessors in the Chair of Peter and in Oecumenical Councils.
ANY Pastoral Praxis which is inextricably linked to Doctrine can neither be in self-contrariety or severed from said doctrine. The Pastoral praxis is eternally bound to the deposit of faith and moral teaching.
A Pope is never bound in discipline or administrative matters by a Papal predecessor.
But only very few limited pastoral praxes are not inextricably bound to doctrine.
therefore His Holiness may only change, limit, cancel or impose any discipline upon a pastoral praxis which is not bound to doctrine.
Communion for those in a state of grace is a pastoral praxis grounded and absolutely linked not merely to doctrine within the Apostolic tradition but to the words of Our Lord & St Paul [the wedding garment and unworthy receivers condemning themselves]
IT IS NOT A DISCIPLINE
Therefore no Pope may permit Holy Communion to those in a state of Mortal Sin - not even God could do that.
And no Pope may delegate that which he cannot personally do to anyone else - he cannot claim to delegate that power to individual Bishops, or Bishops' Conference, or Parish Priests, or a lay-committees, or some ministers of mercy, or some pseudo-internal forum.
Nor Can a Pope in any way imply that one may be absolved from one's mortal sin and guilt save by sacramental grace - which for baptised adult sinners is to be found within the sacrament of Confession. There can never be any man-made replacement structure to replace this efficacy - eg penitential pathway or period of penance etc - the Sacrament of Confession and absolution is the only way to remove mortal sin and gain entrance to reception of the Blessed Sacrament.
His Holiness cannot say otherwise.
No Apostolic exhortation may say otherwise
Nor can His Holiness command or direct otherwise
Nor may His Holiness issue motu proprio commanding otherwise.
So let's make this very, very clear.
Cardinal Muller has already reiterated what the teachings and commands of the Church are in this regard - these cannot be changed - it's God's law - it's the words and actions of the Mystical Body of Christ.
A Pope cannot change them
..and should one ever attempt to do such - and in the process repudiate their role, mandate and commission as Christ's Vicar?
We have a problem...

God's reality is as God has made it - therefore that which is not - is not!!
God can therefore NOT perform the logically incoherent - the antinomial - He can't make a four-sided triangle, nor can He can perform that which is contrary to His nature by degree or contrariety eg He cannot lie or sin - He cannot learn anything new - and of course He cannot create a stone He cannot lift - The All-Powerful cannot be any-less-powerful...
Let God be God..don't revel in atheistic absurdity.

Doctrine unfolds through theological processes in which the formal and final ends remain absolutely clear through positive explicative apologetic manfiestative and tri-illative processes - it DOES NOT change!! It may alter in emphasis and remedial reformative anamnetic reclamation of that which has been diminished or under-emphasised but apostolic tradition as upheld by the magisterium and manifested in the sensus fidelium in creed code and cult and reiterated by papal decrees and oecumenical councils is always and eternally the established deposit of Faith - it can NEVER be altered or be contra-indicative of its inherent form by whim or arbitrary opinion or majority vote of the zeitgeist - Dei Verbum 8 was in categorical error in this regard and can only be considered as an ill-considered contra-magisterial reflection - as Pope Benedict in his repeated recollection of the authentic magisterial teaching in this regard reminds us - nothing can diametrically change - nothing may be repudiated - nothing innovative may be imposed - and NO Directive towards Pastoral Praxis may EVER be either counter-intuitively undermining or deliberately contrary to the established Doctrine which gives it an apologetic justification.

HOW they are going to do it?
..and remember their ultimate aim - which is actually the destruction of the Church and the creation of fragmentary decentralised autocephalous national Churches which will invent their own rules and pastoral praxes and be only nominally united with Rome under Peter - therefore any real re-unification will become impossible - they are seeking to protestantise and turn the One True Church into a pseudo-anglican diverse multiplicity within a confederacy.
Realise their tactics - then you can stop them - the first tactic is going to be Gradualism
Now the 'Law of Graduality' to which St John Paul II refers in
Familiaris Consortio refers to the common-sense blatantly obvious
perception of the gradual effects of a person's repentance and striving
for holiness - how we gradually recover from sin and gradually move
along the path to perfection.
Nobody will deny this is our Pastoral imperative - we are there to exact the seven corporal and seven spiritual works of mercy and the beatitudes among the faithful for
subsidiarity, solidarity, justice and the common good...we are to Love
our neighbour and help lift them out of sin and assist them on the road
to perfection as we gradually mutually stumble along the long journey
home.
BUT Cardinals Erdo and Nichols [and later the #Relatio] misrepresented this Law of Graduality and instead made it appear as if the law of Graduality also refers to 'Gradiuality of the Law' - ie a Gradualist stategy - which is ironically what St JP2
condemns in Familiaris Consortio [remember this was a response to the
Bishops of Synod 80 who wished active homosexuals, co-habiting couples
and the divorced/civilly remarried to have access to the sacraments] -
as well as in the beginning of Evangelium Vitae but most specifically in
Veritatis Splendor 68
Gradualism refers to the formal/efficient causal 'Principle of Graduality which is a means and a strategy towards achieving perfection grounded upon two premises:
a] God has NOT provided enough readily available grace for a sinner to stop sinning
b]The dignity of the human being is so diminished by sin that they cannot
escape their sinfulness except by diminishing the intensity and amount
of their sins on a gradual incremental basis. [a sin-controlled diet - a
pastoral personal sin-reduction fitness regime]
Now the Gospels directly contradict this -
Our Lord's own words "Be Ye Perfect" & "Go and sin no more" &
"you are right where you say you are not married" & the parables of
Luke 10-15, - especially the rich fool - the parable of the pearl of
great price etc... 2Corinthians state categorically that God has
provided us with enough grace to get out of sin, to repent and to strive
for perfection....
Gradualism as a strategy and means - the
Gradualness of the Law- is a heresy - condemned by early Church fathers
such as Chrysostom , Ambrose, Jerome & especially Augustine -
continue through the history of the Church and Thomism calls it a grave
heresy against both God and the human person - Suarez goes so far as to
call in the great heresy against the Love of God - that He does not give
us enough grace to escape from sin is a diabolical lie....
And then we get to the Council of Trent session six where Gradualism is anathematised..
Gradualism- ie we are poor sinners and must be left to keep on sinning just a
little less and a little less badly every day - is an inherent
underlying premise within the Relatio..- it even blatantly states
according to the principle of Gradualism - [a condemned principle being
advocated!!] - and thus it poisons every aspect of it
i.e. it doesn't matter how tolerant, charitable, merciful or compassionate the
relatio's conclusions appear - they are all grounded on the false
premise of a lie about God and human dignity and thus the whole
principle and proposals for pastoral implementations - are false too...
...and what's worse - we already have the chaos of the heresy of
incrementalism leaving the Pro-Life movement in ruins where human lives
are considered negotiable and exceptions and compromises are justified
in order to rescue some lives by selling out other lives - the Caiaphas
principle
...what happens IF a gradualist premise is permitted as a pastoral response to any moral or doctrinal neuralgic issue or crisis?
If gradualism is justified once?
It - being like a virus - will be given free-rein to attack every other moral issue
Look how gradualism has distorted and perverted Natural Family Planning from
being a critical recourse for a grave reason in the time of emergency
and potential prevention of a moral evil - into a normative practice
which may be engaged in by a couple for ANY reason whatsoever - it is
backdoor contraception by omission!
If gradualism is permitted for instance in regard to the divorced and civilly remarried?
Gradualism is given a precedent
...and Humanae Vitae lies is the gravest of danger
For it was the pre-Humanae Vitae vatican commission which endorsed the use of artificial contraception on gradualist grounds
..and if Humanae Vitae falls?
So does every other aspect of Catholic moral teaching on life, love, sexuality and the family...
Gradualism has declared war upon us - and we need to fight back and realise what a
toxic pernicious evil it is...a lie which destroys everything around it....
