Another troublesome Jesuit was Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, a priest during the first half of the century. Fancying himself to be a scientist, he dabbled in evolutionary theory and essentially helped get the snowball known as modernism rolling down the hill. Read here for more detail and some quotes. As you read his "prayer", can't you just hear Obi-Wan Kenobi say "may the force be with you"? That quote if from a Jesuit website so of course they bemoan his "suffering" by being hushed by the Vatican and his superiors (before they too were infected by modernism). Dr. Dietrich Von Hildebrand wrote a detailed critique of De Chardin that is well worth the read.
Both Rahner and De Chardin (now both deceased) played pivotal roles in the early days of the modernist corruption of the Catholic Church. But why am I bringing up these two men in this post?
I do so because Blessed Sacrament Church on Western Avenue in DC will be conducting "courses" on the writings of these two men starting next month. See page 4 of the Sept 4th bulletin. (A word to the Blessed Sacrament staff. Don't bother to try to pull the bulletin from your site; I already archived it.)
The language in the bulletin announcement would lead the unsuspecting parishioner to believe that the teachings of Chardin and Rahner are healthy when in reality they could imperil the salvation of those who accept and implement them. You might recall that this is the same parish that hosted book-signings by both Chris Matthews and Mark Shriver, both "katholycs" who use their bully-pulpits to promote baby-killing, gay #mowwidge and other mortal sins. See here and here for reports on our protest of the Chris Matthews appearance and here for our protest of the Shriver debacle.
I ask my readers to:
- Spread warning of this spiritual poison, particularly to those who attend Blessed Sacrament.
- Contact the parish (contact information is in the bulletin) and ask them to cancel both these series.
