Pope Pius XII Condemned Francis's Amazon Synod's "False Mysticism"

Pope Pius XII in his encyclical Mystici Corporis Christi on the Mystical Body of Christ condemned the ideas of Pantheism which are apparently infused in the Amazon Synod.

These ideas were embodied in the Vatican indigenous rituals that appear to claim that man, nature and God are one and don't need Jesus Christ's saving grace because grace and nature are already intrinsic to each other.

Here is Pius XII's condemnation of the "false mysticism" of Pantheism:

"[T]here is a on the other hand a false mysticism creeping [into the Church], which, in its attempt to eliminate the immovable frontier that separate creatures from the Creator, falsifies the Sacred Scriptures... a distorted idea, a false teaching, impious, and sacrilegious"
(Crisis, "Art & Liturgy: The Splendor of Faith, January 13, 2012)

Francis said that the Amazon Synod is a "child" of his document Laudato si which in my opinion and the opinion of the Washington Post teachings a sub-set of Pantheism called Panentheism.
(Washington Post, "Pope Francis' environmental encyclical is even more radical than it appears," June 19, 2019, Quote from the article: "[P]anentheism in a papal encyclical!")

Many of the ideas in that document seem to have originated in the error of Henri de Lubac that nature and grace are not separate entities, but that grace is intrinsic to nature and human nature. Some say this passage of Pope Puis XII's encyclical was directed at de Lubac's teachings on grace.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

In Diane Montana's article at Lifesite this morning, on the subject of Synod funding derived from the pro-abortion Ford Foundation,a spokesman for REPAM is quoted as offering by way of defense that the Synod itself is pro-life.
What he means by this, however, is that "everything around us is life." If that doesn't smack of the panentheism of which you speak, nothing does.

Let us not overlook, however, the fact that Pius XII was the Pope who had to contend with the anti-life excesses associated with the Second World War. De Lubac himself, in other words, may have been more of a symptom than a cause. Where did his conflation of nature and grace, and the subsequent deification of "Nature" as an entity and end in and of itself, come from in the first place? From compromise with the spirit of his age. From the worldview of a man who called Nature his "cruel Queen." In short, straight from the pages of Mein Kampf itself.

In Laudato Si and its aftereffects, then, we are not dealing with indigenous paganism as much as very modern errors that come from Germamy in more ways than one.

Yes, Laudato si and the Amazon Synod appear to be more Nazi German "deep ecology" which the leftist globalists are using to push a one world government with the indigenous leftists as stage props.

But, most even well informed Catholics don't realize that the French "theologians" such as De Lubac and his collaborators Blondel are linked to the French Revolution Jansenists who engineered the Modernist tactic of pretending to be Catholic with ambitious Catholic sounding language which was ultimately Calvinist and almost always transformed into secular Calvinistic Socialism/Marxism and which eventually leads to paganistic idolatry which we see with the Democrat's Clinton inner circle such as Podesta.

Ettore Gotti Tedeschi called it 'gnostic environmentalism.' Fr. William Jenkins believes this uncannily calls what is going on. Fr. Jenkins is a priest member of the Society of St. Pius V who has posted several analyses, three so far, on the Amazon Synod on youtube.

Moreover, from France came Rousseau which is the basis for Kant's philosophical complex nonsense which brought us Hegel which begot Marxism and Nietzsche that fathered the present day postmodernism with its LBGT offspring who hate to be reminded that German Nationalist Socialism called Nazism which brought us "deep ecology" which is basically today's leftist globalist's Marxist/Socialist climate. change.

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N.

High-profile Lawyer Barnes: Amy Coney Barrett would be a Disaster

High-profile trial lawyer Robert Barnes who deals in civil, criminal and constitutional law reported on Twitter that Amy Coney Barrett would be a disaster. The Barnes Twitter report shows that Coney Barrett has " sid[ed] with the government on the lockdowns, on uncompensated takings, on excusing First Amendment infringements & Fourth Amendment violations...

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? Reason.com tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b
