The “duty” of young christians: “make noise all night”
A) The text of the speech by J.M.Bergoglio:
“Now I leave you. We’ll see each other tomorrow again. You do your part, which is to make a ruckus all night… And show your Christian joy, joy which the Lord gives you to be a community that follows Jesus”. (Greetings of Bergoglio -archbishop’s house in Kraków – Wednesday evening, 27 July 2016)
B) References to Scriptures:
“I am writing to you, young people, because you have overcome the Evil One. I have written to you, young people, because you are strong, and God’s word remains in you, and you have overcome the Evil One.” (1Jo 2:13b;14b)
“Do not love the world or what is in the world. If anyone does love the world, the love of the Father finds no place in him, because everything there is in the world – disordered bodily desires, disordered desires of the eyes, pride in possession – is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world, with all its disordered desires, is passing away. But whoever does the will of God remains for ever.” (1Jo 2:15-17)
“‘You are light for the world. A city built on a hill-top cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp to put it under a tub; they put it on the lamp-stand where it shines for everyone in the house. In the same way your light must shine in people’s sight, so that, seeing your good works, they may give praise to your Father in heaven.” (Mat 5:14-16)
Young Christians who want to live holiness must always be an example of holiness, day and night. Only in this way, young people that want to be saints and that strive to be holy, can be clothed by the Light of Christ. Jesus never spent His nights “making noise”. Jesus was a young man. He lived His youth. But He never let himself go into “making noise”, especially at night, when often He withdrew in prayer to be all one with the Father’s Heart.
Bergoglio’s teachings are worldly and diabolic. Bergoglio is animated by the spirit of the prince of this world and therefore teaches the things of the world, not what belongs to God. Who wants to remain holy must flee from Bergoglio’s teachings and follow the teachings and the example of Christ, that are alive and will increasingly shine in the Universal Christian Church of the New Jerusalem. And those who want to be clothed with the Light of Christ should come and see, to experience the authentic holiness and to escape what is world.
