Catechism of the Catholic Church (675)

'Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the “mystery of iniquity” in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh.' ~ Catechism of the Catholic Church (675)

The Self-Absorbed Promethean Neo Pelagians



Here come the self-absorbed, promethean neo-pelagians!
Let’s pray they trip up over banana skins and fall face down their marble stairs!
Ah, yes those self-absorbed, promethean neo-pelagians!
They could all drop down dead tomorrow and who would care?

Oh sometimes…

Being Pope is hard with
Christians so dark!
Christmas comes around
But it’s just a charade!
Lights and gifts and trees!
Amid war and misery!
The humanity!

Then there’s the…

Diseased curia!
Spiritual alzheimers!
Existential
Euthanasia!
Gossip, terrorists!
Can’t they close their lips!
Recall my fifteen tips…

Ah, but those self-absorbed, promethean neo-pelagians!
Let’s pray they trip up over banana skins and fall face down their marble stairs!
Ah, yes those self-absorbed, promethean neo-pelagians!
They could all drop down dead tomorrow and who would care?

I’m so sick of…

Christian bats!
Intellectual aristocrats!
Doctors of the law!
Pharisees and more!
Starched, anesthetised!
Vain priest-butterflies!
Rigid priests who bite!

And those…
Abstract ideologues!
Creed-reciting parrots!
Pickle-pepper faced!
Strutting like peacocks!
Leprous courtiers!
Corrupt clergymen!
Roaming everywhere!


Ah, but those self-absorbed, promethean neo-pelagians!
Let’s pray they trip up over banana skins and fall face down their marble stairs!
Ah, yes those self-absorbed, promethean neo-pelagians!
They could all drop down dead tomorrow and who would care?

Who’ll rid me of…

Gnostic, weathervanes!
Sourpuss, old maids!
Swindlers, scammers and
Superficial slaves!
Fundamentalist
And triumphalist
Restorationists!?

And the…

Airport bishoprics!
Christian hypocrites!
Querulous and disillusioned
Pessimists!
Liquid Christians!
Addicted to fashion!
Pastry-shop Christians!

Those…

Little monsters!
Moralistic quibblers!
Religious with a heart as sour as vinegar!
Existential tourists!
Disgusting narcissists!
Resisting the Spirit!

Wheeler-dealers!
Tycoons, entrepeneurs!
A band of the chosen in
A Church microclimate!
Yet even these are not as displeasing to me as

The self-absorbed, promethean neo-pelagians!
Let’s pray they trip up over banana skins and fall face down their marble stairs!
Ah, yes those self-absorbed, promethean neo-pelagians!
They could all drop down dead tomorrow and who would care?

The self-absorbed, promethean neo-pelagians!
Let’s pray they trip up over banana skins and fall face down their marble stairs!

They could all drop down dead tomorrow and who would care?

Could you possibly do a Pope Francis version of ‘A little list’? Meanwhile here’s one somebody did earlier about Obama. You're on it.

Surely you know all are saved. Don't obsess about the abortions, the euthanized, those under house arrest, or underground to escape communist or socialist persecution--they are in heaven or soon will be~!Forget them.
