Wanna Have A Mad Moment With God?

Cardinal Charles Bo of Yangon (Burma) is all enthused about the idea.  He gave an address centered around the Holy Family.  For the most part, his talk was rather nondescript.  However, as is often the case (we've seen enough of that in Pope Francis' writings) the poisonous blasphemies and heresies are buried within piles of verbosity.

This one occurs quite close to the beginning.  He opines that God "is not a macho monster, spewing fire and brimstone of vengeance.  He is a God intoxicated with love, indulging in extravagant sacrifice of His Son.  John captures those mad moments of God.."  (Italics mine)

Are you nauseated enough?  I put those words in italics because they are words associated with sinful qualities, particularly with sins of gluttony and imprudence.  Firstly, God is not "intoxicated" with anything.  He is Lord and Creator of the universe.  To suggest that He could ever lose command of His faculties is blasphemous.  I don't care what Cardinal Bo's reason is.  No good can be accomplished by blaspheming God.  Moreover, there is nothing "extravagant" about the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.  God willed it, so it is in perfect order; extravagance denotes sinful disorder.

That whole section, dripping with disgusting effeminacy, is something that we might expect out of some new-age woman-priest-wannabe witches' coven, not from a Prince of the Church.  Even worse, there are too many laity in the Church who are transfixed over this ooze, who prefer cheap sentiment over the objective truths of our Holy Faith.

Until Catholics sober up and think seriously on these matters, our church will continue to be blown about by every whim and fancy given to us by secular culture.  We need to guard ourselves and take up the Rosary daily if we're not doing so already.
