“New Momentum” lineup shows conference will skew sharply to the Left

BOSTON (ChurchMilitant.com) – Dozens of liberal American bishops will be gathering later this month to craft plans for transmitting Amoris Laetitia’s “new paradigm” to parishes across the United States.

The schedule for February 19, 21 and 23, a series of “New Momentum Conferences” are being marketed as “tailor-made” programs to help U.S. bishops harness — and channel — the “new momentum” Amoris Laetitia is said to offer diocesan pastoral ministry.

Modeled on the October 2017 Boston College Amoris Laetitia symposium, the seminars will take place at three liberal Catholic universities: Boston College, the University of Notre Dame and Santa Clara University.

Participants include some of the leading liberals in the U.S. Catholic Church today.

The principal organizers of “New Momentum” are Cdl. Blase Cupich of Chicago; Cdl. Kevin Farrell, head of the Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life; and Boston College theologian, Fr. James Keenan, SJ.

Cupich is one of the most left-leaning bishops in the United States. He endorses Fr. James Martin, famous for his crusade to normalize homosexuality. After Martin was disinvited from several major speaking engagements over his controversial pro-gay stance, Cupich publicly invited him to speak at his cathedral in Chicago. Martin afterward boasted of the speaking invitation on his Twitter page. Cupich has suggested that active homosexuals should be admitted to Holy Communion.

Cupich has called repeatedly for American society to adopt “a consistent ethic of life” — a reference to the “seamless garment” theory of his modernist predecessor, Chicago Cdl. Joseph Bernardin. Cupich compares Planned Parenthood’s trafficking in aborted baby body parts with issues like joblessness and a broken immigration system — his “consistent ethic of life” in action. For years, he’s pressured his priests and seminarians to avoid praying in front of abortion mills and to refrain from supporting the annual 40 Days for Life campaign, which has saved more than 13,000 lives over the past decade. Cupich shows no objection to pro-abortion politicians receiving Holy Communion.

Cardinal Farrell is known for his emphasis on social justice and his praise of prelates favoring Holy Communion to civilly remarried divorcees.

Father Keenan is a long-time supporter of the gay agenda inside the Church. In 2003, just before Massachusetts became the first state to legalize same-sex “marriage,” he testified against a proposed amendment to the Commonwealth constitution that would have defined marriage as the stable union of one man and one woman. The bill, Keenan asserted, was “contrary to Catholic teaching on social justice,” falsely stating that “this same position has been endorsed by the U.S. Catholic Bishops.”

Cardinal Donald Wuerl (Washington, D.C.) and Abp. Wilton Gregory (Atlanta) are scheduled to speak at the upcoming Boston College seminar.

Wuerl proclaims the primacy of conscience, telling his priests and seminarians that in implementing Amoris Laetitia, the laity alone are culpable for their own moral choices, which include if and when to receive Holy Communion.

Gregory, meanwhile, is a leading advocate of the pro-gay agenda in the Church, promoting a pro-gay retreat in his archdiocese and providing New Ways Ministry and DignityUSA a permanent home at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Atlanta, despite Church censure for open opposition to Church teaching on homosexual acts.

In addition to Cupich, Cdl. Joseph Tobin (Newark) will present at the University of Notre Dame.

Tobin applauds Fr. James Martin’s work as “brave, prophetic and inspiring,” and has given his blessing to gay pilgrimages and Masses at his cathedral. He’s also among the few prelates to publicly criticize the dubia cardinals, calling critics of Amoris Laetitia “naive at best.” Tobin also advocates for female cardinals.

Bishop Robert McElroy (San Diego) will feature at the Santa Clara University conference. A top pro-gay prelate, McElroy was the first U.S. bishop to defy Church teaching by publicly declaring divorced and civilly remarried Catholics can receive Holy Communion. In September, McElroy blasted faithful Catholics as a “cancer” in the Church. In 2016, he called for the Church to drop the terms “intrinsically disordered” and “intrinsic evil” from its vocabulary, arguing they’re “judgmental.”

The “New Momentum” conferences will take place behind closed doors.

    The meetings are scheduled during the second week of Lent 2018 and the Word of God is kicked around behind closed doors by apostolic successors who have abandoned His simple teaching for vocabulary for paradigm-ing. Two thousand years ago, Jesus asked His Father to forgive them for not knowing what they were doing. They didn’t have Scripture and Tradition and Magisterium then, unlike these, in this world of lost souls.

  2. Makes me want to weep just thinking of all the faithful who will be led astray by these heretics.
    I thank God every day for our Archbishop! He is good and faithful and our seminarians are being trained up in the One True Faith.
    I pray daily for the hierarchy of the Church for their conversion and salvation. Amen.
    Pray with me,
