"[Anti-Thomist] Francis Honors [Anti-Thomist] Prof. Jean-Luc Marion with one of World’s Top Theology Prizes"

"Oltvai argues that Pope Francis, born as Jorge Bergoglio in Buenos Aires, Argentina, departs from the Thomistic positions of his predecessor, while adopting the notions of the face, the gaze and the other in his pontifical communication, such as in Evangelii gaudium and Amoris Laetitia. This stands close to the philosophical positions of not only Levinas, but also those of Marion, a French Catholic theologian, phenomenological philosopher and a student of [postmodernist Heideggerian] Jacques Derrida." - Pablo Markin

A few days ago it was reported that Francis honored anti-Thomist theologian Jean-Luc Marion":

"Jean-Luc Marion... has been awarded the Ratzinger Prize for his lifetime achievements in theology."

"Awarded annually by Pope Francis and considered one of the world’s most prestigious awards for theological study." [https://news.uchicago.edu/story/pope-francis-honors-prof-jean-luc-marion-one-worlds-top-theology-prizes]

The Francis honored "top theolog[ian]" Marion has attacked Doctor of the Church St. Thomas Aquinas' Catholic philosophical metaphysics in his book "God Without Being" and elsewhere: 

"Marion writes 'God' crossed out, to show that the phenomenality of the biblical God, revealed above all in the Cross, is in constant contradiction with the idol-building proclivities of the human mind, of which metaphysics is one of the most impressive products.Dieu sans l'Etre was taken as an attack on Thomism, for which 'being' is the first of the divine names after the Tetragrammaton. On this point Marion has backtracked a little. He now claims that 'metaphysics', properly speaking, means only the modern onto-theo-logy that begins with Descartes, and that when Thomas Aquinas speaks of God as "being itself subsisting" (ipsum esse subsistens) he is close to Denys, for this God cannot be brought under the categories of metaphysics but exceeds them at every point. Apart from the implausibility of a definition of metaphysics that does not include Aristotle, I find it disappointing that Marion has not attempted to think through the tensions between his phenomenological approach to God and Thomas's metaphysical one. A phenomenological overcoming of the objectifying metaphysical horizons of Thomism remains one of the great tasks of contemporary theology..."

"... Conservative theologians... are alarmed by the novelty of his language and the potential dangers of talking of "God without being." [https://josephsoleary.typepad.com/my_weblog/2006/01/the_theological.html]

Scholar Graham Ward appears to say that the anti-Thomist is a postmodernist Heideggerian fideist:

"Marion's thesis situates... positing the trinitarian God... in distance, absence, the aporia, the anarchy which other postmodernist thinkers read as nihilism... "

"... In God Without Being, on the basis of a distinction (first declared by Heidegger) that the logic of philosophy and the logic of faith are irreconcilable." (The Modern Theologians, Page 332)  

The book An Eerdmans Reader in Contemporary Political Theolog says of Marion's apparent teacher of "distinction[s]" in philosophy and theology that the Nazi philosopher Martin "Heidegger has his own resolution of the mystery: being is nothing, but is the continual presencing of absence in time." (Page 682)

The scholar Pablo Markin states that Francis appears to "departs from...Thomistic positions" in his "close" following of anti-Thomist Marion's teachings in his encyclical Amoris Laetitia:

"Oltvai argues that Pope Francis, born as Jorge Bergoglio in Buenos Aires, Argentina, departs from the Thomistic positions of his predecessor, while adopting the notions of the face, the gaze and the other in his pontifical communication, such as in Evangelii gaudium and Amoris Laetitia. This stands close to the philosophical positions of not only Levinas, but also those of Marion, a French Catholic theologian, phenomenological philosopher and a student of [postmodernist Heideggerian] Jacques Derrida."

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Mass and the Church as well as for the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

"Remember when Trump was up by 600,000 votes in Pennsylvania?": A Hour which will Live in Infamy: 10:01pm November 3, 2020

  Matthew H @MattH_4America Remember when Trump was up by 600,000 votes in Pennsylvania? 1:07 PM · Jul 13, 2022 · Twitter Web App [https://twitter.com/MattH_4America/status/1547311877264400384] 10:01pm November 3, 2020, a hour which will live in infamy, the United States of America presidential electoral integrity was suddenly and deliberately attacked by the forces of the Democrat Machine and some corrupt collaborators within the Republican Party. It will be recorded that "under the pretense of COVID, executive branch officials across a number of key battleground states violated election procedures passed by the legislative branches of those states in a number of ways that opened up the process to fraud on a massive scale, never before seen in the history of this country" which makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks before. During the time before and after the attack the Democrat Machine and its corrupt collaborator

Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Francis teaches HERESY," now, the question is will he do a Skojec & a Schneider Cop Out

    Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation: "[T]he Pope... WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic , he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him , or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See." (The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306) Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Pope Francis teaches HERESY: Pope Pius XII condemned the heresy of Francis": Pope Francis on Feb 2 2022, taught, "that in Christ no one can ever truly separate us from those we love because the bond is an existential bond, a strong bond that is in our very nature...who have denied the faith, who are apostates." Pope Pius XII taught the exact opposite when he wrote of those: "who have not been so unfortunate as to separate themselves from the unity of the Body, or b

    "You cannot give Holy Communion to the abortionists, to the abortion promoters and providers, to the divorce and remarried. You cannot do it. St. Paul said you do not feed the Eucharist to dogs..."   "Right now they [the laity] are suffering in silence. They need to object. The laity, the sensus fidelium is that common sense among the laity who have accepted the magisterial teaching of the Church which is the foundation of their faith."     "Having accepted that when they hear something that is contradictory to the magisterial teaching of the Church, the sensus fidelium is a impulse that causes them to speak out and say no."     "That is not true. Don't say that. Stop! That is the sensus fidelium in action!"     "Not to sit and suffer in silence. That's crazy. That's weird. That's wrong. Speak up! Resist!
