A temper tantrum. Yes, Pope Francis chalked up the covid-19 outbreak to a "temper tantrum" - his words - that nature is throwing so that we "will take care of her". How in hades does he make up this crap? Understand that in this gibberish, he is personifying nature by ascribing to it irascibility.
Let's remember what the Amazon Synod, and in fact most synods and all those meetings with Jeffrey Sachs et al were all about. They were about establishing the de facto religion of earth-worship. That was a big impetus in defiling Churches in Rome along with the open worship of the pachamama idols in the Vatican gardens, with the pope in attendance. I and many others believe that this covid-19 pandemic is nothing less than a Divine chastisement for our many sins against Him - idolatreis, blasphemies, baby-slaughter, the elevation of homosexual perversions, etc. Let's recall that the pachamama disaster happened in Italy, and the greatest number of casualties are in Italy.
However, instead of repenance, the world and the Church are doubling down on sinful conduct. At a time when they should be multiplying Masses and allowing for greater access to the Sacraments, our bishops are restricting access to the sacraments and even eliminating them, going so far as to shutter the Churches. In their claim to be acting out of concern for public safety, they cut off the prime source of God's grace, heaping more disrespect upon God. I salute those dedicated priests who are having to work around various strictures laid upon them by their errant bishops (drive-through confessions, drive-up exposition of Blessed Sacrament, etc). At any rate, pachamama isn't the only occasion for idolatry. We now have "public safety", "compliance with authority" (even when that authority goes outside its own constitutional bounds), etc. Yes, for too many - even for otherwise faithful Catholics - public safety, good in and of itself, has been made into an idol.
Listen now to the words of Archbishop Lenga of Poland. Growing up in Poland, this prelate knows a thing or two about living under a tyranny and the perils of subjugating the One True Faith to the dictates of secular powers-that-be.
