As early as 1907, St. Pius X predicted in his encyclopedia feed that modernism would logically lead to a form of pantheism. from reconciliation document in our ageWe have seen an increasingly open expression of this principle.
Does God appear in some form in all religions, or does “Christ” represent God’s union with all mankind (as in happiness and hope and in John Paul II savior of man), can we still say that Christ represents the union of God with all creation?
in the encyclopedia laudato si’ 2017 There are several elements in this sense: “The Father is the ultimate source of everything, the loving and communicative foundation of all that exists. The Son, who represents Him, and through whom everything is created, is included in this earth.” It happened when he made it in Mary’s womb. The soul, the infinite bond of love, is present deep in the heart of the universe encouraging and stimulating new paths” (n. 238).
“For the Christian experience, all beings in the physical universe find their true meaning in the word incarnate, Because the Son of God has included in his person part of the physical universewhere it has introduced a germ of definite change” (n. 235).
“Christ has taken possession of this material world and now, having risen, dwells in the intimacy of every creature, surrounds it with His affection and penetrates it with His light” (n. 221).
All religions are equal, but paganism abounds
From such a point of view, if for the modernist, all religions are valid expressions of the vital incarnation of the divine in man, then idolatry is its most valid expression. Pope Francis had already illustrated this principle in his own way.
In his sermon on October 7, 2019, he asked: “What is the difference between wearing feathers on your head and the ‘tricorn’ worn by some officers in our decasters?” In his common cruel language, the Pope expressed the idea of the indifference of various religious manifestations, of all manifestations of the universal spirit of the Divine inherent in man.
This commentary is an expression of a broader thought, which has been expressed at times, more appropriately, by modern eclecticism. But if, to speak of the universe as a divinity, Christianity should attempt to use the image of the Avatar and take it as a paradigm for something else, as Teilhard and laudato si’The ancient pagans do not need such a leap.
therefore lies in the repeated appreciation of tribal culture laudato si’ (cf. Numbers 146 and 179), for its exemplary union with the divine universe, and therefore the pleasant image of Amerindian culture, presented by the Synod to the Amazon.
a tool of labor (IL) presents the life of this synod with a “biome” of Indians as a complete model: not only because they respect nature, but because they live a spiritual concept that encapsulates them in the whole. allows fit.
The praise of such a concept is very clear and repeated: in n. 104 suggests “recovering myths and updating community rites and ceremonies that contribute significantly to the process of ecological transformation.”
In fact, “indigenous rituals and ceremonies are essential to comprehensive health because they integrate the various cycles of human life and nature. They create harmony and balance between human beings and the universe. They protect life from the evils that cause it.” Both can be caused by humans. and other living beings. They help to cure diseases that harm the environment, human life and other living beings” (n. 87).
It would seem difficult to say more clearly that harmony with the universe is the result of the spiritual conception of the indigenous people and their rituals; But the text goes a long way. In then. 75 reads: “beats in families cosmic experience, […] After all, it is in the family where we learn to live in harmony: between people, between generations, with nature, in dialogue with spirits,
God Himself, understood as the spirit of the Divine inherent in man and the universe, working in all of this, even embodying Himself in it (in the Telhardian manner): “It is embodied for the Church. There is a great opportunity to discover the presence and of God: in the most diverse manifestations of creation; in the spirituality of the native peoples; in the manifestations of popular religiosity; in the various popular organizations that oppose large projects; and of a productive economy. In motion, sustainable and supportive that respects nature” (IL No. 33).
The Church has a role to “discover” this presence of God and to incorporate it into its own institutions and dogmas, as God manifests Himself in this pantheistic presence and above all in the spirituality of paganism, so the modernists believe in God. Reveal what you think about it.
Christian Pontiff and Pagan Rite
In light of this brief description, the participation of modern popes in actual pagan rites may no longer be surprising. We are not talking here about the sacraments authorized and conducted by the Pope in the eighty-six kinds of ecumenical meetings, but those in which he has personally attended.
Everyone knows the veneration of Pachamama by the Sovereign Pontiff and members of the Synod on Amazon in 2019; However, few people know that in the summer of 2017, on the occasion of the anniversary of diplomatic relations with Japan, a no theater performance was held in the Vatican with a classic play. hagoromo to which the element was associated NanbaiA Shinto ritual in which actors take on the role of deities dancing for peace and prosperity.
The Okina interpreter must purify himself before beginning. Among the sacrifices offered on the altar are menbkoa receptacle containing the masks used for the show and the masks used for Nanbai, It is therefore a true pagan ritual that took place many centuries ago in the palaces of the Apostles, on a Vatican hill cleansed from the martyrdom of St. Peter, the work of Constantine and St. Sylvester.
In July 2022, on the fourth day of his recent visit to Canada, a magician from the Huron-Wendet Nation performed “ritual purification (ritual purification) as part of a scheduled reception.blurred out) in all four directions” in front of the Pope, using sweet grass and animal feathers to disperse the sacred smoke lit in honor of the Great Spirit, Manitou.
The pontiff, having received turkey feathers and sweet grass, was then invited to participate in a “spiritual circle” from which “a sacred fire could be conceived”. The healer said that “the holy fire unites everything that is in creation.”
“We will honor earth, air, water and fire,” said the native in classical esoteric words. “We’re going to respect the mineral aspect, the vegetable aspect, and the human aspect.”
To “open the four directions”, the magician whistled the bone instrument four times while reciting special invocation sutras. Arriving at the “Western Gate”, he said: “I ask the Western Ancestor to grant us access to the Sacred Circle of Souls, to be united and strong with us.”
All those present were asked to lay their hands on their hearts. Video footage shows the pope, along with bishops and cardinals, all performing the pagan ceremonial order given to them.
In 1984, John Paul II, in Canada, had already attended the same ceremony as Pope Francis: but back then he reminisced the assassination attempt, then more recently, dipped in rare essence and blood to disperse the smoke He was given the wing of an eagle. A description of this ritual, similar to the ritual celebrated with Pope Francis, was published in the cross of September 8/9, 1984.
All the pagan rituals that John Paul II participated in cannot be listed here in their entirety: in terms of severity and extent, we refer only to the prayer in the Sacred Forest of Togo, the invocation of spirits by a shaman. with, and a purification ritual with the active participation of the deceased pontiff (see osservatore romano 11 August 1985).
In 1986, in India, the Pope was received with the singing of Vedic hymns (hence pagan and openly pantheistic) and many celebrations of a very distinctly Hindu nature, even with the celebration of Mass. was also mixed.
Finally, on a picturesque note, Pope Paul VI was the first to wear an Indian feathered headdress, during an audience at Castel Gandolfo in September 1974.
Nothing new under papal modernism…
