Ecumenism is Heresy!

How does a Catholic sin against faith??

A Catholic sins against Faith by Apostasy, heresy, indifferentism and by taking part in non-Catholic worship.” Catechism of the Council of Trent, Catechism of Pope St. Pius X and The Baltimore Catechism).

“St. Anthony the Abbot would not speak to a heretic, except to exhort him to the true faith; and he drove all heretics from his mountain, calling them venomous serpents.” – St. Athanasius on the life of St. Anthony the Hermit.

Argentine artist rocks Pope Francis during a general audience

One of the most iconic moments of Pope Francis’ papacy came when he embraced two of his friends at the Wailing Wall. The image resonated because Abraham Skorka is Jewish, and Omar Abboud is Muslim. The three leaders of different faiths came together to demand peace.

During a general audience, the Argentine artist Gustavo Masó presented a painting inspired by the scene to Pope Francis.

“I took that as a nudge, we’ll say, from which to begin to build the image aesthetically. It is also an interreligious meeting. Then, I found it interesting that they are three Argentines and they did not have hurt feelings. I thought it would be interesting to capture that moment.”

He tried to include in the painting the three fundamental books of the world’s three biggest monotheistic religions: the Bible, the Koran and the Torah. Omar Abboud, the Muslim representative, signed on transparent paper since Islam does not allow writing on the Koran.

“Pope Francis took part with a Bible, also on the cover, with the word peace. They are the three words written in three languages: Arabic, Hebrew and Spanish.”

It was the first work that Gustavo Masó made for the Pope, who personally advised him to create something about the bond between different religions.

“A bond was established with the Vatican last year once I finished these two works to mark the canonization of Pope John Paul II and John XXIII. We agreed to carry out a new work with an interreligous character.”

The historical hug made headlines worldwide. Gustavo Masó added that he wanted to amplify that news flash so that it would have enduring power.
