Lenten Meditations for Francis and Curia: Judas’ Suicide was a “Work of Mercy”

José Ferraz de Almeida Júnior, "The remorse of Judas" (1880)

The suicide of Judas – “a fact uncomfortable and embarrassing historical in which the Church is not afraid to come to terms” – was born “work of mercy”: with these thirty pieces of silver, which has unsuccessfully tried to return to the priests, ” it ends up to be built a cemetery to bury strangers “in Jerusalem. It is right on the “delicate question” of the suicide of Judas and his “loss of faith in the Lord”, that Father Giulio Michelini spoke in front of the Pope and his collaborators of the Roman Curia Wednesday morning, March 8, in the fifth meditation exercise spiritual, being in the Divine Master House in Ariccia. And for the preacher – who has received an email from testimony by a Franciscan brother, pastor in Aleppo, which describes the ordeal of the population – it is significant that the blood, in contrast to anti-Jewish accusations of deicide, moves especially from the fifth century , do not fall “on the head of Israel” but in the field bought at the price of blood of Christ and now, therefore, “work of mercy.”

  1. What are we to take from this? That everything, even the most horrific of sins, Deicide itself are actually good because they can/will produce good consequences? We all know good CAN always come from evil by man’s proper human faith response in face of it, but the no-Hell- “progressives” with Francis appear to mean much more. They mean that the possible good that may come from evil is likely a certainty and that for this reason good neutralizes and even justifies the evil itself. That is the synchronizing of Christianity with the full blown Eastern philosophy that evil coexists with good in a necessary symbiotic way. This syncrony however has already taken place in the Church, all it lacks is a formal recognition which Francis seems determined to see happen in order to create his New One World Religion. What else could explain the near complete absence of any warning of the ETERNAL consequences of sin in our Church today? Concern about sin relates mostly to the temporal consequences and our need of being happy and peaceful in this life. Just ask the typical priest today, for instance, if he believes Judas is in Hell today. Few priests even of the most conservative brand will give you a straight, “Yes!” This is true even though Jesus called him , “The Son of Perdition,” and that it would have been better for him had he not been born. This is despite the dire warnings of Our Lord Himself of the Lake of Fire and a judgment of “outer darkness” where men will be cast. This is despite what was revealed by Heaven to St. John about the “torment for ever and ever” of “fire and brimstone” for those who worship the Anti-Christ, and the Lake of Fire into which all who were not written in the Book of Life were cast. (Revelation 14 and 20) So the false new Christ (Anti-Christ) of Cardinal Kasper has already been introduced and welcomed in many Catholic parishes. So when the Anti-Christ is finally revealed in person these will only be getting who they have already invited into their Churches and who they have already been worshiping.
