Before We criticize the statement attributed to John Paul II, We must
give Our understanding of his words. First of all, by including in his
treatment of sex not only normal persons but also those who are mentally
handicapped he is making his teaching apply as if it were universal and
applicable to all men, that is, it leaves no one out. It even leaves out
the element of choice. In other words, if one chooses celibacy he becomes
less than human. Why is that? He says that his teaching on the use of sex
is a “constitutive dimension of the person.” Hence, if what
he proposes in regard to sex is denied or just neglected there is a defect
in the human person. In other words if one who does not have sex “encounter
and communion” he/she is less than a perfect human being.
To repeat, John Paul II says that each and every man “is from
his beginning called to actualize himself in encounter and communion…in
the sexual dimension.” That statement contradicts not only
the defined teaching of the Council of Trent, as it is quoted above,
but it also goes
counter to all Catholic teaching and practice.
As a starter, it belittles Our Lord Jesus Christ, who was celibate. Likewise,
it belittles the Blessed Virgin, Mary who was celibate even in her marriage
to St. Joseph, also celibate.
When Christ spoke of eunuchs in Matthew 19, 12 He say of the voluntary
eunuchs or single life, “He that can take it let him take it.” By
His example He shows that being celibate in no way diminishes the perfection
of the person.
St. Paul extols the excellence of voluntary celibacy in (I Cor.7-8) where
he wished that all would be as he was, that is, celibate. He certainly
did not want to advise his listeners to embrace a state of life that was
less perfect than the marriage state. In fact in our fallen nature marriage
may even be a hindrance to attaining high sanctity, while the very condition
of dedicated celibacy opens the road to higher sanctity and thus to a higher
degree of bliss in heaven.
While she extols the superiority of voluntary celibacy over marriage,
the Church in no way demeans the state of matrimony. Sex in lawful marriage
is necessary for the perfection of society, and therefore in its place
it is good, and it was so ordained by the creator.
When Our Lord spoke of the future life in heaven He said, “in the
resurrection they shall neither marry nor be married, but shall be as the
angels of God in heaven” (Mt. 22, 30). It is clear that what is transitory,
something lived on this earth and not in heaven, cannot belong to the perfection
of the human person. It sure would be ridiculous to assert that all the
Saints in heaven are less than perfect human beings, that is, human cripples.
John Paul II, by including the mentally handicapped among those who are
called on to “actualize himself in encounter and communion” of
sex, flies in the face of the moral order. Sex is permitted only in the
context of a valid marriage. The mentally impaired (the insane) cannot
make the contract of a valid marriage. Hence, according to John Paul II
sex “encounter and communion” belongs to the insane where no
marriage is even possible.
While speaking with the Apostles, Our Lord told them of their future reward,
and in that talk he extolled abnegation and even the giving up of a wife.
He said (Math 19, 29) “And every one that hath left house or brethren
or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands for my name’s
sake, shall receive a hundredfold and shall possess life everlasting.”
It is interesting to note that there were Novus Ordo idols during and
after bogus Council Vatican II (1962-1965). Those men watered down the
practice of celibacy by having what they call “chase love” affairs.
The real marriage union between Mary and Joseph was had to conceal the
virgin birth of Christ from the public, which could very well have accused
the Blessed Virgin of illicit sex in conceiving Christ, had the celibate
Joseph not been beside her, appearing as her partner in conceiving Christ.
The fact is Mary conceived only by the operation of the Holy Ghost.
During and after bogus Council Vatican II (1962-1965) some priests became
idealistic leaders of the bogus direction of the faith. They traveled extensively
and spoke to large audiences, plus they published all kinds of papers on
what was billed as the new theology. Pastors and Religious superiors held
up those perpetrators of evil as tin gods. If they said something, no matter
how bizarre, it had to be accepted as true, and like it or not, their subjects
had to verbally accept it or remain silent.
We recall most clearly three priests who quite secretly had their consorts,
in practice, billed as unions with chaste love. Before bogus Council Vatican
II chastity was viewed as a virtue that could be maintained only by prayer
and constant vigilance, and that will forever be the truth.
Here are the names of the priests We must criticize as perverters of holy
purity and a scandal especially to the younger clergy.
The first one was Father Hans Urs von Balthasar, and his so-called chase
lover was Adrienne von Seyer. The twofold evil in that situation was the
fact that bishops and Religious superiors urged on their subject the acceptance
of their perverted doctrines and liturgical aberrations. As this was public
knowledge, when We (prior to Our elevation to the papacy) criticized those
men as being outside of correct Church teachings Our superiors accused
Us as being involved in “negative thinking.” Just think of
it; “negative thinking” leaves the subject in the air. It does
not say he is wrong. It merely says that he is involved in a bad-thinking
process – whatever that could be!
Another very popular priest writer was Father Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.
He was an exotic leader in studies on evolution, a discipline that no Catholic
may pursue. In the first book of the Bible, that is, the book of Genesis,
God revealed that, “In the beginning God created heaven and earth.” De
Chardin’s lady-lover was a Protestant divorcee, Lucille Swan. The
bad air of the Novus Ordo religion produced many sick minds, and those
in charge of the clergy, foisted those aberrations onto their subjects.
As We look back We utter a prayer for Our deceased superiors, so that if
they made it to purgatory, they may rest in peace.
It is hardly possible for any Novus Ordo library to be without the writings
of Father Karl Rahner, S.J. He, like the other two priests We exposed,
generally appeared in civilian clothes having a dress shirt with a necktie.
That put in disrepute the Roman Collar as a sign of the priest. The priests
who still continued wearing the Roman Collar were looked down upon as being
out of step with the times. The lady lover of Father Karl Rahmer, S.J.
was Luise Rinser. It is interesting to note that Luise Rinser was able
to publish her letters, but the Jesuits have forbidden the publication
of Father Rahmer’s letters. Amazingly Karl Rahmer and his lady-love
claimed to “walk on the peak of chase sexual love.” We remind
anybody who wished to dabble in such a dangerous and novel life style what
God says in (Eccl. 3: 27), he “who loves danger will perish in it.”
Even to this day the Teilhardians say, that “without the feminine,
man has no access to maturity and spiritual fullness.” There is every
reason to believe that John Paul II and/or those who helped him to compose
the document given above were influenced by the Teilhardian concept of
the necessity of sex “encounter and communion.” In other words
all of them are telling the world that where there is no sex encounter
and communion there is no perfect human person or existence.
It would be a disservice to those in the married state to neglect to treat
the matter of development and perfection in their married state. The Creator
instituted marriage when he gave Eve, His newly created woman, to Adam
to be his wife.
The right order of things must always be kept in perspective. The purpose
of religious life in perfect chastity has for its purpose the perfection
of the individual. Those in the married state are also to develop, even
become saints as far as possible. However, the perfection of the spouses
is in the service of bringing children into this world.
On October 29, 1951 Pope Pius XII gave an allocution to midwives. We shall
give a paragraph from his allocution that is most important for the correct
understanding of the present dispute about the end of marriage in contrast
to the end for which a life in chastity is involved. We quote,
