Appeal to the Holy Father

Holy Father,

In view of the Synod on the family to be held in October 2015, we filially address Your Holiness to express our fears and hopes regarding the future of the family.

Our fears arise from witnessing a decades-long sexual revolution promoted by an alliance of powerful organizations, political forces and the mass media that consistently work against the very existence of the family as the basic unit of society. Ever since the so-called May 1968 Sorbonne Revolution, a morality opposed to both Divine and natural law has been gradually and systematically imposed on us so implacably as to make it possible, for example, to teach the abhorrent “gender theory” to young children in many countries.

Catholic teaching on the Sixth Commandment of the Law of God shines like a beacon in face of this ominous ideological objective. This beacon attracts many people—overwhelmed by this hedonistic propaganda—to the chaste and fecund family model taught by the Gospel and in accordance with natural law.

Your Holiness, in light of information published on the last Synod, we note with anguish that, for millions of faithful Catholics, the beacon seems to have dimmed in face of the onslaught of lifestyles spread by anti-Christian lobbies. In fact we see widespread confusion arising from the possibility that a breach has been opened within the Church that would accept adultery—by permitting divorced and then civilly remarried Catholics to receive Holy Communion—and would virtually accept even homosexual unions when such practices are categorically condemned as being contrary to Divine and natural law.

Paradoxically, our hope stems from this confusion.

Truly, in these circumstances, a word from Your Holiness is the only way to clarify the growing confusion amongst the faithful. It would prevent the very teaching of Jesus Christ from being watered-down and would dispel the darkness looming over our children’s future should that beacon no longer light their way.

Holy Father, we implore You to say this word. We do so with a heart devoted to all that You are and represent. We do so with the certainty that Your word will never disassociate pastoral practice from the teaching bequeathed by Jesus Christ and his vicars—as this would only add to the confusion. Indeed Jesus taught us very clearly that there must be coherence between life and truth (cf. John 14:6-7); and He also warned us that the only way not to fall is to practice His doctrine. (cf. Matt. 7:24-27)

Asking for Your apostolic blessing, we assure You of our prayers to the Holy Family—Jesus, Mary and Joseph—to enlighten Your Holiness in these crucially important circumstances.

Sign the appeal here.

The Church is coming apart at the seams. And what are most Catholics doing? They are preparing to watch football in a state of deep sleep.

I fear the Antichrist is behind this and will make himself known shortly.....even this year.

Why have I not heard anything about this at my parish or the CFP?

The pope already is OK with adultery, cohabitation, same sex "marriages" and adoptions, gender "re-assignment", desecrated communions, etc. as he has already shown in his home diocese, and continued acceptance of these practices by the Vatican II church all over Europe. He won't do anything about it because that's what he wants, and what the gang of heretic Modernist cardinals advising him want.
You won't hear any peeps throughout Worcester Diocese because the bishop and his cronies at the chancery, the USCCB and the Catholic-Free Press have whored themselves to the Democrat Party a long time ago.

That appeal is too long. This Pope can't handle anything more than a few bites of text. I doubt he has even read one complete book.

Time was when Jesuits were the intellectuals and educators of Catholics. That was then and this is now.

Please reduce that petition to three of four sentences.

I really don't know what to do if the Pope denies that Jesus has come in the flesh in the Eucharist. I have the awful feeling that the priests in my country will go along with whatever nonsense the Pope says. I cannot partake of a false sacrament or worship a false god. Where then can I worship God if there is no loyal priest anywhere around here.?
