CULTURAL MARXISM

CULTURAL MARXISM

October 18, 2015

Dr Cernea is a bold, right-thinking Catholic layperson. Such is what we laypeople all ought to be. We look to our bishops for wisdom and guidance, but we look to Christ and our Church first and foremost. If our bishops are no longer speaking the truth of the gospel, then we ourselves need to resist them and stand for orthodoxy and Church Magisterium.

Many Catholics have not heard of Cultural Marxism (please read Day 14 of my book Forty Days of Life). Such actually has been the thrust of the enemy through these last decades. “Basically, this is Marxism translated from economic to cultural terms. Its goal is the destruction of Western culture and the Christian religion It is today the ruling ideology of American elites.” (page 85). “Cultural Marxism is about socialism, social engineering, counter-culture, and Freudo-Marxism. It is about political correctness” (page 88). “Cultural Marxism is an open assault on faith, family and life.” (page 89).

How do we combat cultural Marxism? It is first of all knowing what our mission as Church is. It is, as Dr Cernea says, “to save souls.” What then should we do? “The solution is: Evangelization. Conversion.” This is something that our Church is no longer doing much of. Our parishes are very busy but are not evangelistic, continuing to leave the 99 lost sheep out in the cold. Our Church needs to get back to basics, and that is, to proclaim the gospel of salvation in Jesus. This needs to be done rapidly and massively.

The assault on faith, family and life continues, now even at the highest levels in the ongoing Synod. Our Church has rightly called us to the New Evangelization. We as CFC-FFL have rightly responded with the Live Christ, Share Christ (LCSC) movement. This is the way to go. Every Catholic needs to hear the authentic gospel, and be truly converted.

May our prelates at the Synod recognize the prophetic voice of the Spirit in Dr Cernea. And may all laypeople be as bold, as wise and as holy.

Romanian doctor makes blunt, powerful plea to pope and bishops in her Synod talk

The Church’s mission is to save souls. Evil, in this world, comes from sin. Not from income disparity or “climate change”.

ROME, October 17, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – Dr. Anca-Maria Cernea, Doctor at the Center for Diagnosis and Treatment-Victor Babes and President of the Association of Catholic Doctors of Bucharest (Romania) made the following presentation to Pope Francis and the Synod bishops on Friday:

Your Holiness, Synod Fathers, Brothers and Sisters, I represent the Association of Catholic Doctors from Bucharest.

I am from the Romanian Greek Catholic Church.

My father was a Christian political leader, who was imprisoned by the communists for 17 years. My parents were engaged to marry, but their wedding took place 17 years later.

My mother waited all those years for my father, although she didn’t even know if he was still alive. They have been heroically faithful to God and to their engagement.

Their example shows that God’s grace can overcame terrible social circumstances and material poverty.

We, as Catholic doctors, defending life and family, can see this is, first of all, a spiritual battle.

Material poverty and consumerism are not the primary cause of the family crisis.

The primary cause of the sexual and cultural revolution is ideological.

 

Our Lady of Fatima has said that Russia’s errors would spread all over the world.

It was first done under a violent form, classical Marxism, by killing tens of millions.

Now it’s being done mostly by cultural Marxism. There is continuity from Lenin’s sex revolution, through Gramsci and the Frankfurt school, to the current-day gay-rights and gender ideology.

Classical Marxism pretended to redesign society, through violent take-over of property.

 

Now the revolution goes deeper; it pretends to redefine family, sex identity and human nature.

This ideology calls itself progressive. But it is nothing else than the ancient serpent’s offer, for man to take control, to replace God, to arrange salvation here, in this world.

It’s an error of religious nature, it’s Gnosticism.

It’s the task of the shepherds to recognize it, and warn the flock against this danger.

“Seek ye therefore first the Kingdom of God, and His justice, and all these things shall be added unto you.”

The Church’s mission is to save souls. Evil, in this world, comes from sin. Not from income disparity or “climate change”.

 

The solution is: Evangelization. Conversion.

Not an ever increasing government control. Not a world government. These are nowadays the main agents imposing cultural Marxism to our nations, under the form of population control, reproductive health, gay rights, gender education, and so on.

What the world needs nowadays is not limitation of freedom, but real freedom, liberation from sin. Salvation.

Our Church was suppressed by the soviet occupation. But none of our 12 bishops betrayed their communion with the Holy Father. Our Church survived thanks to our bishops’ determination and example in resisting prisons and terror.

Our bishops asked the community not to follow the world. Not to cooperate with the communists.

 

Now we need Rome to tell the world: “Repent of your sins and turn to God for the Kingdom of Heaven is near”.

Not only us, the Catholic laity, but also many Christian Orthodox are anxiously praying for this Synod. Because, as they say, if the Catholic Church gives in to the spirit of this world, it is going to be very difficult for all the other Christians to resist it.
