Does Francis's Theology Substitute man's Becoming for God's Being?

St. Catherine of Sienna's first letter to Pope Gregory XI:

"Oh, sweet and true knowledge... if he loves himself for his own sake and not for God - he cannot do other than ill, and all virtue is dead in him. Such a one is like a woman who brings forth her sons dead."
(The Letters of Saint Catherine of Sienna,  page 86)

This letter seems to be speaking to the Vatican II school of the Nouvelle Theologie (New Theology) which is apparently central in Francis's thinking.

This theology appears to substitute man's becoming for God's being.


Francis says Cardinal Walter Kasper is "profound." The National Catholic Reporter called Kasper "the 'pope's [Francis's] theologian.'" His theology is one extreme example of this school of thought.


Kasper appears to not believe in being, but only in becoming because of his Hegelian philosophy.


The philosopher Thomas Stark said that one of Kasper's central beliefs is "historical process," that is man's historical becoming or change.


Remember that Francis's two favorite words are process and change.


In "German Idealism and Cardinal Kasper's Theological Project" for The Catholic World Report, Stark wrote:


"Kasper's...'spirit' that--Kasper himself says--is not identical to the third divine person, but is much more reminiscent of Hegel's absolute spirit, who in a historical process, synthesizing it's dialectical opposites in itself, develops into the whole."


Speaking of the less heretical theologians than Kasper and his disciple Francis who were members of Nouvelle theologie who believe in process or becoming and the dangers of this thinking, Fr. James McLucas, the former editor of the Latin Mass magazine, in a lecture said:


"It appears to emphasis the Person of Jesus, the Person of the Holy Spirit and the Person of the Father and the personal manner of each individual's sanctification as being created in the image of God."


"But here is the key. This is all true.We certainly need this emphasis. But personhood if it is not fully subjected to being and the objective nature of God, then personhood becomes often the vehicle for the substitution of man's becoming for God's being."


If one substitutes man's becoming for God's being then man is becoming nothing. Here is why:


If one believes in being, one believes a thing is a thing.


God is the fullness or total actuality of all things or being and is their creator. Our purpose or goal in life to go to God.


God is not a Kasperian "historical process" or change.


If one believes only in becoming without being, one believes nothing is becoming nothing or death.


G. K. Chesterton put it best:


"Most thinkers on realizing the apparent mutablility of being, have really forgotten their own realization of the being and believe only in the mutablility...It is only change."


"It would be more logical to call it nothing changing into nothing than to say (on this principles) that there ever was a moment when the thing was itself. St. Thomas maintains that the ordinary thing at any moment is something, but it is not everything it could be...While they describe a change which is really a change in nothing, he describes a changelessness which includes the change of everything."


"Things change because they are not complete, but their reality can only be explained as part of something that is complete. It is God." (The Dumb Ox)

If man goes to God who is Being Itseft then he receives the gifts of grace, truth and eternal life.


If men like Kasper and his disciple Francis substitutes man's becoming or change over and against God's Being or Changelessness then he gets nothing and eternal death.

The question needs to be asked since Francis's favorite word is change remembering what Chesterton said "it would be more logical to say it is nothing changing into nothing" which is what one gets if one is a disciple of Kasper:


Does Francis believe in nothing and eternal death according to G. K. Chesterton?

Francis Notes:

- 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)


Saint Robert Bellarmine, also, said "the Pope heretic is not deposed ipso facto, but must be declared deposed by the Church."

The AAS guidelines explicitly allows "sexually active adulterous couples facing 'complex circumstances' to 'access the sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist.'"

-  On February 2018, in Rorate Caeli, Catholic theologian Dr. John Lamont:

"The AAS statement... establishes that Pope Francis in Amoris Laetitia has affirmed propositions that are heretical in the strict sense."

- On December 2, 2017, Bishop Rene Gracida:

"Francis' heterodoxy is now official. He has published his letter to the Argentina bishops in Acta Apostlica Series making those letters magisterial documents."

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church by the bishops by the grace of God.

What is needed right now to save America from those who would destroy our God given rights is to pray at home or in church and if called to even go to outdoor prayer rallies in every town and city across the United States for God to pour out His grace on our country to save us from those who would use a Reichstag Fire-like incident to destroy our civil liberties.

Might it be Good for all of us & for Francis to Read about the "Gruesome Death of Arius"?

  I have read the letters of your piety , in which you have requested me to make known to you the events of my times relating to myself, and to give an account of that most impious heresy of the Arians , in consequence of which I have endured these sufferings, and also of the manner of the death of Arius . With two out of your three demands I have readily undertaken to comply, and have sent to your Godliness what I wrote to the Monks; from which you will be able to learn my own history as well as that of the heresy . But with respect to the other matter, I mean the death, I debated with myself for a long time, fearing lest any one should suppose that I was exulting in the death of that man. But yet, since a disputation which has taken place among you concerning the heresy , has issued in this question, whether Arius died after previously communicating with the Church ; I therefore was necessarily desirous of giving an account of his death, as thinking that the question woul
