(LifeSiteNews) — Swiss Bishop Marian Eleganti warned about heresies entering into the Church through the Synodal process in a Lenten reflection. He also criticized the repeated use of the term “inclusivity” and stressed that the Church is also exclusive when it comes to sin.
“Major synodal processes are underway around the world,” Eleganti said in a video message, “and the term inclusivity comes up very often.”
“All should come to know the Lord and find their home in the bosom of the Church through faith and baptism. But there is also exclusivity in the good sense of the word,” the Swiss bishop explained.

“When I own a house, I naturally want to welcome anyone who is a friendly and honest guest in my house, but I close my house to thieves,” he continued. “There I am exclusive. We must not lose these distinctions.”
“Of course, we want everyone to be at home in the Church. This includes also the so-called minorities that are always the subject of the word inclusion. Homosexuals, the divorced and remarried, to just name a few. But this inclusion does not mean that we approve of everything, that we no longer call out sin.”
Liberal bishops around the world continue promoting heterodox views on homosexuality, female priests, divorce, contraception, and more — advancing anti-Catholic positions that jeopardize the salvation of souls.
Such bishops often sideline, ignore and even persecute traditional Catholics who simply ask that the Faith be preserved and passed on to their children.
But traditional Catholics cannot be silenced any longer, which is why we are uniting in this international boycott of modernist bishops and dioceses until the deposit of Faith is upheld by the hierarchy again.
SIGN: We will not fund modernist bishops or priests who undermine the Catholic Faith, but rather direct our contributions towards faithful clergy and orders that work for the salvation of souls.
There are countless examples of bishops working against Christ's Church in calling for divine law to be ignored in favor of sexual, doctrinal and liturgical deviancy, even trying to clamp down on Catholics who practise the Faith.
Just last year, Cardinal Cupich banned traditional prayers after Mass, and more recently has curtailed the Traditional Latin Mass in his diocese.

Who but a devil would ban these prayers after Mass
The attack on the Faith is out in the open, with modernist bishops causing scandal in countless ways:
- Shutting down the Latin Mass in numerous parishes
- Rejecting the Church's teaching on sodomy
- Ignoring Vatican cover-ups of abuse by fellow bishops
- Celebrating LGBT Masses
- And so much more!
We have seen enough. Now is the time to show true Catholic unity against those who undermine the Faith - do not be bullied into submission by these men who would disfigure Christ's Church.
JOIN THE BOYCOTT & SHARE! Tell everyone you know to STOP giving money to bishops who attack the Catholic Faith.
"We therefore commit to a financial boycott of modernist bishops until the hierarchy resolves to uphold the entire deposit of Faith."
If the bishops refuse to uphold and protect the teaching of Christ's Bride, the Catholic Church, then we must refuse to support them until they repent.
P.S. — Demanding that liberal bishops be held to account through financial boycott will help save the Church from doctrinal and pastoral ruin. This is the first step in restoring the Faith for future generations. Our time is now, so please join us by signing today!

“We love the people, but we reject, with Christ, with God, the sin. We distinguish between right and wrong, between good and evil, between orthodox in the sense of the faith of the Church, and heretical, where opinions and positions are held that simply contradict the faith of the Church. There we must be exclusive.“
Eleganti said that in the Church Councils of the past, the term “anathema sit” (let him be anathema) was often used to express that people who hold certain positions cannot be part of the Universal Church. He furthermore stressed that we have to be exclusive regarding the spirit of the Antichrist.
“Of course, we can’t cultivate a welcoming culture here. Rather, we must be exclusive in the best sense of the word so that the Church and the simple hearts do not suffer any damage,” he said.
“And perhaps it would be necessary to remove from office bishops who obviously hold heretical views and think in categories that are more political, sociological, but not sacramental, mystical and not in the good sense of the word theological.”
“We don’t need Reformation 2.0, but a real renewal of thought,” he said. “This begins first and foremost in the heart of the individual.”
The Swiss bishop concluded his message by wishing all viewers a blessed Lent.
In November 2022 Eleganti condemned Pope Francis’ Synod on Synodality as a “marketing campaign” for heresy. He also criticized the heterodox German Synodal Way, which openly calls for a change in the Catholic Church’s immutable teaching on sexuality and its anthropology.
