Is Pope Francis Views On Socialism/Capitalism At Odds With The Previous 10 Popes ?

As we look at the ideology of Socialism and look at the writings and teachings of the popes for several decades, we see the contrast of Pope Francis views with many Catholic Papal pronouncements from the past.

All the same, it is not out of place to review the condemnation of Socialism by the popes starting with Pope Pius IX and ending with Pope Benedict XVI. But why is it that the current Pope Francis views on Socialism and Capitalism seems to be at odds with the views of his last 10 predecessors?

This glaring contrast is a very dangerous indication of the state of our Catholic faith, so we must pray for Pope Francis everyday.

Gustavo Solimeo on April 8, 2010, in their website: tfpstudentaction.org published “What the Popes Really Say About Socialism.”

Let’s look at what they say:

  1. Pope PIUS IX (1846-1878)      

The Overthrow of Order

“You are aware indeed, that the goal of this most iniquitous plot is to drive people to overthrow the entire order of human affairs and to draw them over to the wicked theories of this Socialism and Communism, by confusing them with perverted teachings.”

(Encyclical Nostis et Nobiscum, December 8,1849)

2.    Pope Leo XIII (1878-1903)

Overthrow is Deliberately Planned

“…For, the fear of God and reverence for divine laws being taken away, the authority of rulers despised, sedition permitted and approved, and the popular passions urged on to lawlessness, with no restraint save that of punishment, a change and overthrow of all things will necessarily follow. Yea, this change and overthrow is deliberately planned and put forward by many associations of communists and socialists.”
(Encyclical Humanum Genus, April 20, 1884, n. 27)

2 a.    Pope Leo XIII (1878 – 1903)

Debasing the Natural Union of Man and Woman

“They [socialists, communists, or nihilists] debase the natural union of man and woman, which is held sacred even among barbarous peoples; and its bond, by which the family is chiefly held together, they weaken, or even deliver up to lust.
(Encyclical Quod Apostolici Muneris, December 28,1878, n. 1)

2 b.    Pope Leo XIII (1878 – 1903)

The Harvest of Misery

“…there is need for a union of brave minds with all the resources they can command. The harvest of misery is before our eyes, and the dreadful projects of the most disastrous national upheavals are threatening us from the growing power of the socialistic movement.”
(Encyclical Graves de Communi Re, January 18, 1901, n. 21)

3.    Pope St. Pius X (1903 – 1914)

The Dream of Re-Shaping Society will Bring Socialism

“But stranger still, alarming and saddening at the same time, are the audacity and frivolity of men who call themselves Catholics and dream of re-shaping society under such conditions, and of establishing on earth, over and beyond the pale of the Catholic Church, ‘the reign of love and justice’ … What are they going to produce? … A mere verbal and chimerical construction in which we shall see, glowing in a jumble, and in seductive confusion, the words Liberty, Justice, Fraternity, Love, Equality, and human exultation, all resting upon an ill-understood human dignity. It will be a tumultuous agitation, sterile for the end proposed, but which will benefit the less Utopian exploiters of the people. Yes, we can truly say that the Sillon, its eyes fixed on a chimera, brings Socialism in its train.”
(Apostolic Letter Notre Charge Apostolique [“Our Apostolic Mandate”] to the French Bishops, August 15, 1910, condemning the movement Le Sillon)

4.  Pope Benedict XV  (1914 – 1922)

Never Forget the Condemnation of Socialism

“It is not our intention here to repeat the arguments which clearly expose the errors of Socialism and of similar doctrines. Our predecessor, Leo XIII, most wisely did so in truly memorable Encyclicals; and you, Venerable Brethren, will take the greatest care that those grave precepts are never forgotten, but that whenever circumstances call for it, they should be clearly expounded and inculcated in Catholic associations and congresses, in sermons and in the Catholic press.”
(Encyclical Ad Beatissimi Apostolorum,     November 1, 1914, n. 13)

5.   Pope Pius XI (1922 – 1939)

Socialism Cannot Be Reconciled with Catholic Doctrine

“We make this pronouncement: Whether considered as a doctrine, or an historical fact, or a movement, Socialism, if it remains truly Socialism, even after it has yielded to truth and justice on the points which we have mentioned, cannot be reconciled with the teachings of the Catholic Church because its concept of society itself is utterly foreign to Christian truth.”(Encyclical Quadragesimo Anno, May 15, 1931, n. 117)

6.  Pope Pius XII (1939 – 1958)

The Church Will Fight Socialism to  the End

“[The Church undertook] the protection of the individual and the family against a current threatening to bring about a total socialization which in the end would make the specter of the ‘Leviathan’ become a shocking reality. The Church will fight this battle to the end, for it is a question of supreme values: the dignity of man and the salvation of souls.” (“Radio message to the Katholikentag of Vienna,” September 14, 1952 in Discorsi e Radiomessaggi, vol. XIV, p. 314)

6 a.   Pope Pius XII (1939 – 1958)

The All-Powerful State Harms True Prosperity

“To consider the State as something ultimate to which everything else should be subordinated and directed, cannot fail to harm the true and lasting prosperity of nations.” (Encyclical Summi Pontificatus, October 20, 1939, n. 60)

7.    Pope St. John XXIII (1958 – 1963)

No Catholic could subscribe even to moderate socialism

“Pope Pius XI further emphasized the fundamental opposition between Communism and Christianity, and made it clear that no Catholic could subscribe even to moderate Socialism. The reason is that Socialism is founded on a doctrine of human society which is bounded by time and takes no account of any objective other than that of material well-being. Since, therefore, it proposes a form of social organization which aims solely at production; it places too severe a restraint on human liberty, at the same time flouting the true notion of social authority.” (Encyclical Mater et Magistra, May 15, 1961, n. 34)

8.   Pope Paul VI  (1963 -1978)

Christians Tend to Idealize Socialism

“Too often Christians attracted by socialism tend to idealize it in terms which, apart from anything else, are very general: a will for justice, solidarity and equality. They refuse to recognize the limitations of the historical socialist movements, which remain conditioned by the ideologies from which they originated.” (Apostolic Letter Octogesima Adveniens, May 14, 1971, n. 31)

9.   Pope St. John Paul II (1978-2005)

Socialism: Danger of a “simple and radical solution”

“It may seem surprising that ‘socialism’ appeared at the beginning of the Pope’s critique of solutions to the ‘question of the working class’ at a time when ‘socialism’ was not yet in the form of a strong and powerful State, with all the resources which that implies, as was later to happen. However, he correctly judged the danger posed to the masses by the attractive presentation of this simple and radical solution to the ‘question of the working class.’” (Encyclical Centesimus Annus – On the 100th anniversary of Pope Leo XIII’s Rerum Novarum, May 1, 1991, n. 12)

10.   Pope Benedict XVI (2005-2013)

We do not Need a State which Controls Everything

“The State which would provide everything, absorbing everything into itself, would ultimately become a mere bureaucracy incapable of guaranteeing the very thing which the suffering person -every person – needs: namely, loving personal concern. We do not need a State which regulates and controls everything, but a State which, in accordance with the principle of subsidiarity, generously acknowledges and supports initiatives arising from the different social forces and combines spontaneity with closeness to those in need. … In the end, the claim that just social structures would make works of charity superfluous masks a materialist conception of man: the mistaken notion that man can live ‘by bread alone’ (Mt 4:4; cf. Dt 8:3) – a conviction that demeans man and ultimately disregards all that is specifically human.” (Encyclical Deus Caritas Est, December 25, 2005, n. 28)

Who Are The Residents And Occupants Of The Swamp that Trump Promised To Get Rid of?

 

 

 

 

 

Answer: They are the ones currently creating turmoil and chaos for President Donald J. Trump. They are scared to death about Trump’s promise to the American people: “TO DRAIN THE SWAMP” They know full-well that Trump is deadly serious and so therefore they manufacture lies, shout in their shrill, liberal, and socialist voices about impeaching Trump, with absolutely no evidence or cause.

Democratic Scandals Never get Special Prosecutor Appointments. Why?

 

 

Why is it that the numerous scandals that transpired under the Obama Administration never generated the appointment of a special prosecutor? The answer is unabashedly simple: because Republicans have no spine. They can not and do not fight back! That’s why I am now an Independent.

What are some of those Democratic-Liberal Scandals?                                     

1.  2012 Benghazi, Libya Attack on the American Embassy.                 2.  IRS Conservative Targeting Scandal.                                                             3.  Traitor Bowe Bergdahl -failure to prosecute.                                          4. Violation of Immigration laws- by allowing illegals to stay in US. 5.  Clinton Classified Email Scandal.

Now Trump who is barely over his 100 days in Office is hit with Special Prosecutor, Robert Mueller.

Now, I’m predicting, contrary to all the Liberal-Democratic efforts trying to unseat and impeach Donal J. Trump from the presidency of the United States and after Robert Mueller’s conclusion of his Special Investigation into Trump-Russia alleged collusion. Trump will be cleared and all of these Democratic-Liberal forces will look absolutely Stupid

Dear God, Help Our Country And Nation!

A Small Seed With A Reputation

The Mustard Seed

mustard-seedFrom Jesus words in Matthew 17, verse 20: “Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

And from Matthew 13, verse 31-32: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. 32 Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.”

The smallness of the seed is emphasized in order to describe the greatness and power of faith and the Kingdom of God.

That faith, when planted, nurtured and cultivated with care produces results beyond ones expectations. And the Kingdom of God blooms from that seed of faith that Christ has brought to the world from His Father.

That seed of faith now in our current day and age, has grown into a  tree is being hated and in danger of being rooted out. Why? Because it is the tree planted by Jesus Christ.

 

2. Conservative Ideas Versus Liberal Arguments

CONSERVATIVE IDEAS PROMOTE PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY WHILE LIBERAL BELIEFS EMPHASIZE GOVERNMENT CONTROL

liberal-conservative

Liberals emphasize the need for government to solve problems while Conservative ideals teach personal responsibility, limited government, free markets, traditional American values and a strong national defense.

Because people love “free stuff”, they think a liberal administration is doing them good. They do not realize that the “free”stuff are not really free. They come from us – the people—from our over 20 Trillion debt. That’s why personal responsibility is so essential. That’s why we must question our legislators why they allow our over 20 trillion debt to continue to pile up?  That’s why the actions of Hillary Clinton are more detrimental to our country than the words of Donald Trump. Actions definitely speak much louder than words. Evil comes to fruition with actions. With what Hillary has done in Benghazi, Libya, with the death of the Ambassador and his three compatriots. With her destruction of thousands of classified emails, with their corrupt foundation, that clearly distribute government favors for contributions to their foundation are active endeavors that will continue to contribute to the destruction of America and American values. Yes, there is evil in what Trump has said but the evil in what Hillary has done is more pervasive and destructive. That’s why Trump is a better choice.

 

 

Things That Really Matter

1. Political Corruption & Correctness Versus Truth
2. Conservative ideas Versus Liberal Arguments.
3. Country or Nationalistic Values Versus World Government
4. Christian Ethics and Values Versus Islamic Teachings

These are only 4 of the many serious topics plaguing our society and world. And correctly understanding where each side lies in the realm of GOOD VERSUS EVIL IS VERY ESSENTIAL!

If you suspect your beliefs and understanding concerning all of the above are confused or at the very least, shaky—–you need a lot of study and a lot of God’s WISDOM obtained from serious prayer and contact (not superficial prayer that selfishly asks for benefits only) with and from God; So He can help us understand that real prayer means caring for everything that can harm the world he created and fighting for what’s right & good in unity with all of God’s teachings.

Let’s start with #1. “Political Corruption & Correctness Versus Truth & Judge Jeanine Pirro:

 

 

A Wonderful And Inspiring Little Video

In life, we have joy and happiness, longing and sadness, apprehension, worry,  and a multitude of other feelings that occupy our lives because we are only human and are subjected to all of these normal human life experiences. We share, we comment, we learn and we teach; and every so often we encounter a beautiful experience that we want to really share—and this little video says it all but says it with wonderful simplicity.

The Irony Of Personal Opinion

Today as I watched tributes to Muhammad Ali, I could not help but focus on 2 videos that are expressing the exact opposition to each other———These videos make us think about the polarities affecting our society and our world. Be the judge.

1. Billy Crystal’s tribute to Ali

2. A Black Woman’s Claim Why She Never Liked Muhammad Ali
