THE SERVANT GENERAL
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.

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
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
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.
