ANTI-CAPITALIST, JESUIT POPE BERGOGLIO PENS A ANTI-CATHOLIC BOOK!!

Jesus betrayed by Judas 'Bergoglio'

“But this is your hour and the power of darkness.” – JESUS  Luke  22:53

Bergoglio is our Chastisement…

“Newpope Judas Bergoglio pens an anti-Catholic book… the ultimate betrayal!!”

Long gone are the days for True popes! Oh for the good old days of Pre-Conciliar Popes when encyclicals and letters, were in fact Catholic and for Catholics!

In his latest ploy to undermine God and the sacrum depositum fidei! Judas Bergoglio pens a book for the ‘secular world’ and as usual bashes true Catholics! Marxist Bergoglio is hoping to $$$ cash in on book sales which for the most part will only represent His anti-Catholic views.

 Bergoglio has called for a church devoted to the poor, a church that returned to its roots and the original healing ministry of Jesus. It was critical of self-righteous bureaucrats who would glorify themselves rather than Christ, and deplored those “dour judges bent on rooting out every threat and deviation” from doctrine. 

He emphasizes moral sincerity over dogma, an understanding of the complexities of the world and individual experience over rigid doctrine. 

He insists that his now-infamous “Who am I to judge” comment about gays was merely a repetition of the church’s teaching on homosexuality. (??)

The cry of Sodom and Gomorrha

SODOMY AN ABOMINATION TO GOD And the Lord said: The cry of Sodom and Gomorrha is multiplied, and their sin is become exceedingly grievous.

Sodomy is one of the four sins which cries to heaven for vengeance. An abomination to God!

“Truly, this vice is never to be compared with any other vice because it surpasses the enormity of all vices. It defiles everything, stains everything, and pollutes everything. And as for itself, it permits nothing pure, nothing clean, and nothing other than filth. – St. Peter Damian

“No sin in the world grips the soul as the accursed sodomy; this sin has always been detested by all those who live according to God. Deviant passion is close to madness; this vice disturbs the intellect, destroys elevation and generosity of soul, brings the mind down from great thoughts to the lowliest, makes the person slothful, irascible, obstinate and obdurate, servile and soft and incapable of anything; furthermore, agitated by an insatiable craving for pleasure, the person follows not reason but frenzy. They become blind and, when their thoughts should soar to high and great things, they are broken down and reduced to vile and useless and putrid things, which could never make them happy.  Just as people participate in the glory of God in different degrees, so also in hell some suffer more than others. He who lived with this vice of sodomy suffers more than another, for this is the greatest sin.” – St. Bernardine of Siena

The thing that the church needs most today is the ability to heal wounds and to warm the hearts of the faithful; it needs nearness, proximity. I see the church as a field hospital after battle. A person once asked me, in a provocative manner, if I approved of homosexuality. I replied with another question: Tell me: when God looks at a gay person does he endorse the existence of this person with love, or reject and condemn this person. We must always consider the person. The dogmatic and moral teachings of the church are not all equivalent. The church’s pastoral ministry cannot be obsessed with the transmission of a disjointed multitude of doctrines to be imposed insistently. If the Christian is a restorationist, a legalist, if he wants everything clear and safe, then he will find nothing. The view of the church’s teaching as a monolith to defend without nuance or different understandings is wrong. In his first book aimed at a general readership (secular, anti-catholic world), as usual Bergoglio chastises true Catholics  in the Church, saying they are undermining mercy in the name of doctrine!

Pope Francis claims he is a ‘sinner in God’s mercy’ who could have ended up in jail and reveals one of his nieces has married a divorced man 

  • Pope Francis reveals his ‘special relationship’ with prisoners in new book 

  • He reveals how the Catholic Church should be more welcoming of gays 

  • Book, which includes a series of interviews, to be published in 86 countries

Bergoglio has described himself as a ‘sinner’ in need of God’s mercy, as he reveals how the Roman Catholic’s debates over divorce have impacted on his own family. 

In the first book of his papacy, the Pope – a frequent visitor to prisons – told how he could have been in jail if he was wasn’t a pontiff and refers to his ‘special relationship’ with convicts. 

The revelation came as he declared one of his nieces had married a divorced man in the book The Name of God is Mercy.

Pope Francis, pictured here kissing a statue of baby Jesus a Mass in St. Peter's Basilica, at the Vatican, described himself as a 'sinner' in need of God's mercy 

In extracts, Francis said: ‘I have always been very much attached to them, precisely because of the awareness that I have of being a sinner.’

‘Every time I cross the doorway of a prison, I always ask myself, “Why are they are here, and not me?” I should be here, I should deserve to be here. Their fall could have been mine. I don’t feel superior to those in front of me.’

The book will be published on Tuesday in 86 countries and compromises a series of interviews, some of them highly personal, with the 79-year-old Argentine-born pope.

The pope, interviewed by veteran Vatican reporter Andrea Tornielli, talks of the power of ‘shame’, describing it as guidance from God for providing a moral path.

He said: ‘Shame is a grace: When we feel God’s mercy, we really are ashamed of ourselves. Despite all our past of wretchedness and sin, God remains faithful to us and raises us up.’

And turning to the jubilee year he launched on December 8, whose theme is divine mercy, the pope said: ‘The church condemns sin, because it has to tell the truth: this is a sin. But at the same time, it embraces the sinner who acknowledges what he is.

I hope that the jubilee will show the face of a Church which is rediscovering the womb of mercy…

‘A Church that goes out into the world… a field hospital whose characteristic is to spring up wherever there’s fighting. Not some elaborate structure, kitted out with everything… (but) a mobile structure, for saving (people), for fast intervention.’

Proselytism is solemn nonsense 1

The Pope also lays out his case for emphasizing the merciful face of the Catholic Church, saying God never tires of forgiving and actually prefers the sinners who repent over self-righteous moralizers who don’t.

In the book, he condemns what he calls the ‘scholars of law’ — the doctrinaire-minded rigorists who throughout the history of the church have challenged Jesus’s message of unconditional love and mercy for even the most wretched of sinners.

He says often these self-righteous Christians are hypocrites themselves, using the law to hide their own ‘deep wounds.’

‘These are men who live attached to the letter of the law but who neglect love; men who only know how to close doors and draw boundaries,’ Francis is quoted as saying.

The Vatican is officially launching the book Tuesday with a high-level panel discussion featuring Francis’ secretary of state, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, and ‘Life Is Beautiful’ actor Roberto Benigni, signaling the importance Francis places on getting the message out.

His thoughts around the church's teaching on homosexuality are also addressed in the book The Name of God is Mercy

In the book, he also calls for the Church to be more welcoming of gays. 

He insists that his now-infamous “Who am I to judge” comment about gays was merely a repetition of the church’s teaching on homosexuality. (???!)

Francis won praise from gays with the comment, uttered during his first press conference in 2013. 

Resist Bergoglio - An Absolute Heretic!!! He only leads souls to Hell....

If anyone says that it is possible that at some time, given the advancement of knowledge, a sense may be assigned to the dogmas propounded by the church which is different from that which the church has understood and understands: let him be anathema!

But many conservatives have criticized the remark as vague and incomplete since church teaching also holds that gay acts are ‘intrinsically disordered.’

Francis says the church has long held that gays should be treated with dignity and respect and seen as individuals. And he goes to some length throughout the text to cite scripture and previous popes to make clear that his radical agenda is fully rooted in the church’s basic teachings.

An extract read: ‘People should not be defined only by their sexual tendencies: Let us not forget that God loves all his creatures and we are destined to receive his infinite love.’

Council of Ancyra (A.D. 314)

“Those who have committed such crimes before age twenty, after fifteen years of penance, will be readmitted to the communion of prayer. Then, after remaining five years in that communion, let them receive the sacraments of oblation. However, let their lives be analyzed to establish how long a period of penance they should sustain in order to obtain mercy. For if they unrestrainedly gave themselves over to these crimes, let them devote more time to doing penance. However, those aged twenty and over and married who fall into these crimes, let them do penance for twenty-five years and [then] be received in the communion of prayer; and, remaining in it for five years, let them finally receive the sacraments of oblation. Moreover, if those who are married and over fifty years of age commit these crimes, let them obtain the grace of communion only at the end of their lives.”

CONciLIAR

Cardinal Schönborn spoke in the interview about a gay friend of his… after many temporary relationships, is now in a stable relationship. “It’s an improvement,” he said. They share “a life, they share their joys and sufferings, they help one another. It must be recognized that this person took an important step for his own good and the good of others, even though it certainly is not a situation the Church can consider ‘regular’.”

“We are all called to observe the situation, not gazing from above and beginning with abstract ideas, but with the gaze of pastors who scrutinize today’s reality in an evangelical spirit,” the cardinal said in an interview!!

Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind, because it is an abomination.  Leviticus: 18:22 DRV

If any one lie with a man as with a woman, both have committed an abomination, let them be put to death: their blood be upon them.  Leviticus: 20:13 DRV

For this cause God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature. And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts one towards another, men with men working that which is filthy, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error.  Romans 1:26, 27 – DRV

The cardinal says as a child of divorced parents he knows what it is to grow up in a ‘patchwork family!’

heretic bergoglio 1

A three-week Synod of Bishops to talk in the abstract about Catholic teaching on the family makes no sense to Austrian Cardinal Christoph Schönborn of Vienna.

“We are all called to observe the situation, not gazing from above and beginning with abstract ideas, but with the gaze of pastors who scrutinise today’s reality in an evangelical spirit,” the cardinal said in an interview with Jesuit Fr Antonio Spadaro, editor of La Civiltà Cattolica.

In the early September interview, the cardinal spoke about his experience at the extraordinary Synod of Bishops on the family last year, about his own parents’ divorce, about the relationships of his friends and about his hopes for the world Synod of Bishops on the family next month.

The approach the bishops are called to take, he said, “is not first of all a critical gaze that highlights every failure, but a benevolent gaze that sees how much good will and how much effort there is even in the midst of much suffering”.

The next step, he said, is not to pretend that everything in all those situations is fine, but to help Catholics build on what is good, growing in holiness and faithfulness to God and to each other.

The Church’s ministers, the cardinal said, should recognize what is good where it is found. For example, he said, a civil marriage is better than simply living together, because it signifies a couple has made a formal, public commitment to one another. “Instead of talking about everything that is missing, we can draw close to this reality, noting what is positive in this love that is establishing itself.”

Cardinal Schönborn spoke in the interview about a gay friend of his who, after many temporary relationships, is now in a stable relationship. “It’s an improvement,” he said. They share “a life, they share their joys and sufferings, they help one another. It must be recognized that this person took an important step for his own good and the good of others, even though it certainly is not a situation the Church can consider ‘regular’.”

The Church’s negative “judgment about homosexual acts is necessary”, he said, “but the Church should not look in the bedroom first, but in the dining room! (??!) It must accompany people.”

Pastoral accompaniment “cannot transform an irregular situation into a regular one”, he said, “but there do exist paths for healing, for learning,” for moving gradually closer to a situation in compliance with Church teaching.

“We are not at risk of diluting the clarity [of Church teaching] while walking with people because we are called to walk in the faith,” he said. No synod member wants to change Church teaching.

However, he said, at the 2014 extraordinary synod it seemed that many synod members had very abstract ideas – and actually rather modern ideas – of what the reality of marriage is, ignoring that “for centuries, perhaps millennia”, marriage was a sacrament reserved to the upper classes who could afford a dowry and a ceremony.

“In the Vienna baptismal records of the 1800s, about half of the babies were illegitimate, children of all those servants in the upper-class homes who could not marry because they did not have the means,” he said.

FALSEMERCY OF NEWCHURCH OF ROT

The Sin of the Century is the Loss of the Sense of sin. – Pope Pius XII

More and more young people today are living together instead of marrying, many of them because of a lack of financial security, he said. The bishops need to ask themselves: “Are we here to deplore this phenomenon instead of asking ourselves what has changed?”

“There is a risk of easily pointing a finger at hedonism and individualism,” he said, when “it takes much more effort to observe the realities carefully” and respond helpfully.

Cardinal Schönborn said that being a child of divorced parents – and of a father who remarried – he knows what it is to grow up in a “patchwork family”. And despite it not conforming fully to the Church’s ideal, “I also experienced the radical goodness of the family” with grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins who helped out.

Unfortunately, he said, the media seem to have made the treatment of Catholics who are divorced and civilly remarried without an annulment into a “test case” for Pope Francis, asking: “In the end, will there be mercy for those in irregular unions?”, meaning allowing them to receive the sacraments.

But a blanket edict, he said, is not the attitude of Christ, the good shepherd; “the attitude of the Good Shepherd is, first of all, to accompany persons”, helping them heal.

They want mercy from the Church, the cardinal said, “but the first mercy to be requested is not that of the Church, it is mercy toward their children” and toward the ex-husband or ex-wife. The Church’s ministers can help them move in that direction, too, he said.

Satanic Fruits of Bergoglio: Fast and Free Annulments on the way!

Archbishop Lefebvre ora pro nobis!

Kyrie Eleison: Annulments to be handed out like candy in Newchurch of Rot!!

Pope radically simplifies Catholic marriage annulment procedures!

by Philip Pullella

(Reuters) – Pope Francis on Tuesday made it simpler and swifter for Catholics to secure a marriage annulment, the most radical such reform for 250 years, and told bishops to be more welcoming to divorced couples.

Under the old norms, it often took years to win an annulment, with hefty legal fees attached. Francis said the procedure should be free and the new rules mean that a marriage might be declared null and void in just 45 days in some cases.

The announcement came the week after Francis signaled a more merciful approach to women who had obtained abortions and was another sign of his drive to shake up the hidebound Roman Catholic Church and try to soften some of its more rigid rules.

In a document known as a Motu Proprio, Latin for “by his own initiative”, Francis reaffirmed traditional teaching on the “indissolubility of marriage”, making clear that the Vatican was not in any form promoting or sanctioning divorce.

However, he said he would make it easier for separated couples to obtain an annulment — a ruling whereby the Church decides that a marriage was not valid in the first place because certain prerequisites such as free will, psychological maturity and openness to having children were lacking.

Francis eliminated a previously mandatory review of an annulment decision by a second tribunal and gave bishops sweeping powers to judge quickly the most clear-cut cases.

He said he had decided to streamline procedures so that Catholics who sought annulments should not be “long oppressed by darkness of doubt”(?!) over whether they could have their marriages declared null and void.

MOST CHANGE IN 250 YEARS

Monsignor Pio Vito Pinto, dean of the Vatican appeals court that rules on annulments, told a news conference the new rules were the most substantive changes to the laws since the papacy of Benedict XIV, who reigned from 1740 to 1758.

“The pope is seeking to respond pastorally to the tens of thousands of couples who are experiencing profound pain and alienation as a result of broken marriages,” said Father James Bretzke, theology professor at Boston College.

Francis took charge of the 1.2 billion member Church in 2013, replacing Pope Benedict, a theological hardliner well liked by conservatives for seeking to reaffirm traditional Catholic identity.

The Argentine pope has appeared a much more approachable figure and has spoken repeatedly of the need for the Church to show mercy and understand the needs of Catholics struggling to live by its rules.

Catholics who divorce and remarry in civil ceremonies are considered by the Church to be still married to their first spouse and living in a state of sin. This bars them from receiving sacraments such as communion.

While not changing this position, Francis wrote on Tuesday that bishops should show “particular pastoral concern” for divorced and remarried Catholics.

Many couples and priests have complained that the complex procedures discourage even those with legitimate grounds for an annulment from trying to obtain one.

Some 50,000 annulment procedures were launched last year, nearly half of them in the United States, according to the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate at Georgetown University.

Francis is due to pay a landmark visit to the United States next month, where his progressive views on climate change and condemnation of rampant capitalism look certain to put him at loggerheads with Republican presidential hopefuls.

Heresy: Pope may ride to rescue of interfaith marriages / Sermon Padre Pfeiffer

Absolute Truth Must be Unchangeable!!!!!  Pope St. Pius X

Are you a divorced non-Christian in love with a Catholic and are hoping to marry in a church? Are you dreading the long arduous process you have to go through to do so? Well it may not be so tortuous if the Pope has his way. In the current process the non-Christian must apply to the Pope through a tribunal and then wait for over a year for permission to be granted. But Pope Francis is likely to ease restrictions on the marriage of divorced non-Catholics to Catholics.

“In all likelihood the Holy Father [Pope] might be generous and decide that the Archbishop can give his consent for the remarriage of a divorced non-Christian with a Catholic. We will know in October when over 1,200 bishops from across the world meet in the Vatican,” said Reverend Dr John Abraham, the judicial vicar.

Though the church does not believe in divorce as a concept, it practices a detailed and exhaustive procedure before allowing a divorced non-Christian to marry a Catholic in church. The tribunal, consisting of three judges, studies the case and decides whether to send a final dossier to the Vatican to seek the permission of the Pope.

According to Reverend Abraham thus far only seven cases have been sent to Rome from Karnataka, since the tribunal began in 1971.

“But if the divorced non-Christian party gets baptized before the marriage then they can seek the permission through the Archbishop and not the Pope,” clarifies Reverend Abraham.

“But it is ridiculous if the Pope has to sit and give permission for every Catholic who wants to marry a non-Christian,” said 23-year-old Rhea D’Souza who is planning her marriage to a divorced non-Christian. (!!)

“So my partner has to apply to the Church requesting the Pope to annul his marriage. This whole process itself will take several months or even years as there are over 150 cases being filed every year,” she adds.
First the tribunal checks if the non-Christian in question has obtained a divorce from a civil court. After this the tribunal will summon the former spouse and other family members to check if the divorce was by mutual consent, and carried out in a fair and just manner. “It is important for us to find out if the ex-spouse was keen on staying in the marriage. We take statements of the ex-spouse, parents and other family members. In case we find out that the Catholic fell in love with the non-Christian while he’she was married, and that was the reason for the dissolution of the marriage then we will not give permission for the marriage to go ahead. The church cannot accept its own child to sin and be the reason for a broken marriage,” Reverend Abraham adds.
The tribunal then finds out whether there are valid reasons to annul the marriage, even if it is a non-Christian one. “Some of the grounds to annul the previous wedlock of a non-Christian include mental stability of the ex-spouse, whether the party [who is keen on marrying a Catholic] was forced or cheated into the first marriage, whether the marriage was consummated,” explains Vicar General of Bengaluru Archdiocese S Jayanathan.
The church also finds out whether the ex-spouse or the children from the first wedlock have been well cared for and their requirements have been taken care of.

“Once these issues have been set right by the divorcee and we feel that the two parties [from the previous wedding] are not willing to reconcile then we petition the Pope and the process of getting a reply from the Vatican takes about six months and then another four months to complete the paperwork before the two can marry in or outside the church,” says Reverend Abraham. In case this procedure is defied by the two parties and ends up in a civil court marriage, then the Church will not consider wedlock valid.

‘No need to convert’?? Absolute Heresy! NO SALVATION OUTSIDE THE CHURCH!

False Church: ‘No need to convert’ – Proselytism is solemn nonsense – Bergoglio 

Vicar general S Jayanathan and Judicial vicar Reverend John Abraham stated that the church does not insist on a non-Christian converting to Christianity in order to marry a Catholic, even if the ceremony were to be held in a church. The Church allows the marriage of a non-Christian to a Catholic on two conditions: One, that all children born out of this marriage will be baptized in a Catholic church. Two, the non-Christian party will accept the marriage as unbreakable and that he/she will not re-marry. “Though we don’t forbid non-Christians from converting, there is no obligation on the party to convert if they want to marry in the church,” Abraham told BM.

Pope Francis doll to hit shelves in July ahead of US visit!

New Order Bergoglio Doll

New Order Bergoglio Doll

Pennsylvania toy company Bleacher Creatures is known for their sports and entertainment dolls, but have taken on the leader of the Catholic Church as their latest muse. 

The manufacturers have created a plush version of Pope Francis, ahead of his visit to the United States this fall.

The 10-inch figurine features Francis in a white cassock and pelligrina, and a fringed, gold fascia. A silver pectoral cross suspended from a silver chain, a white zucchetto, and black shoes complete the outfit.

The surprising addition to the Bleacher Creatures collection was actually a natural progression, according to CEO Matthew Hoffman.

“Everyone agrees that [the Pope is] an inspirational figure who’s tremendously popular around the world,” Hoffman explained. “He fits in perfectly in our universe of true-to-life plush figures.”

The company was founded in 2011 after Hoffman had difficulty finding MLB toys for his children at ballparks. He decided to create the dolls himself, and made $1 million in revenue in six months.

Now, Bleacher Creatures has MLB, NFL, NBA, and NHL dolls, and recently signed licensing deals with DC Comics and Warner Bros. Batman, Superman, and other comic book stars will get their own Bleacher Creatures soon.

The Pope Francis doll is $19.99, and will be available for purchase in July. Hoffman doesn’t forsee any backlash against the product.

“We’ve done our due diligence and I don’t think we’re upsetting anyone,” he said. “And yes, we have reached out to the Vatican and would love to officially partner with them.”

Synod Chief: Pope Francis approved family synod’s controversial mid-term report before publication!!

Resist Bergoglio!!

Resist Bergoglio!!

Not a real shocker!  New Order Bergoglio continues doing what he always has done, please the people of the world and continue to mock God and our Holy Catholic faith.

(LifeSiteNews.com) – The lead organizer of the Vatican’s Synod on the Family has revealed that Pope Francis approved the controversial mid-term report from the meeting before it was published. Until now, Pope Francis’ role in the document’s publication has been left to conjecture.

The Relatio post disceptationem, as it is called, was intended as a provisional summary of the debate from the Synod’s first week. But after it was released it was strongly criticized by numerous Synod fathers, including Cardinals Raymond Burke, Gerhard Muller, George Pell, and Wilfrid Napier, some publicly and some behind meeting doors.

Some critics have even described it as the worst official document in the history of the Church.

Cardinal Lorenzo Baldisseri, secretary general of the Synod of Bishops, spoke about the pope’s role regarding the Synod documents in an interview with Aleteia at a Pontifical Council for the Family conference last week.

“The documents were all seen and approved by the Pope, with the approval of his presence,” Baldisseri said. “Even the documents during the [Extraordinary] Synod, such as the Relatio ante disceptatationem [the preliminary report], the Relatio post disceptationem [interim report], and the Relatio synodi [final report] were seen by him before they were published.”

“This point is important not only because of his authority, but also it puts the Secretary General at ease,” the cardinal added – “wryly,” according to Aleteia.

In its most controversial sections, the Relatio post disceptationem, or “report after the debate,” asked whether “accepting and valuing [homosexuals’] sexual orientation” could align with Catholic doctrine; proposed allowing Communion for divorced-and-remarried Catholics on a “case-by-case basis”; and said pastors should emphasize the “positive aspects” of lifestyles the Church considers gravely sinful, including civil remarriage after divorce and premarital cohabitation.

Its most controversial provisions were left out of the Synod’s final report, the Relatio synodi, but many critics have called on the Vatican nevertheless to rescind the interim document.

Cardinal Baldisseri also confirmed that the pope ordered that several controversial sections in the proposed Relatio synodi, or final report, be included in the published version even though they failed to get the necessary two-thirds vote from the Synod fathers.

“It was the Pope’s decision to include the points that did not receive the two-thirds majority,” he said.

“The Pope said: ‘These three points received an absolute majority. They were therefore not rejected with a ‘no,’ as they received more than 50 percent approval. They are therefore issues that still need to be developed. We as a Church want a consensus. These texts can be modified, that’s clear. Once there has been further reflection, they can be modified.”

These sections were re-published as part of the Lineamenta, without a note that they were rejected, that was sent out to the world’s bishops for discussion in preparation for the next Synod in October 2015.

Aleteia’s Diane Montagna writes that these latter comments from Baldisseri came in response to a question from a representative of a Venezuelan-based family organization, who asked for anonymity. This man expressed the “shock” and “concern” that has been the response of many Catholics around the world, particularly those involved in the struggle to defend life and family.

Baldisseri said, however, that the “shock” was misplaced. “We shouldn’t be shocked that there is a different position from the ‘common doctrine,’” he said. (?!!)

He assured the 300 conference attendees that “there’s no reason to be scandalized that there is a cardinal or a theologian saying something that’s different than the so-called ‘common doctrine.’ This doesn’t imply a going against. It means reflecting. Because dogma has its own evolution; that is a development, not a change.”

Montagna told LifeSiteNews.com that she had wanted to “be fair” to the cardinal, so she made a recording of all his comments to ensure that she could reproduce the quotes correctly.

She writes, “The Cardinal also informed us that the 46 questions published in the Lineamenta were the work of both the General Secretariat and the 15 members of the Council of the Secretariat. Responses are due April 15th.”

Baldisseri’s comments confirm the claim by another of the Church’s highest ranking prelates, Cardinal Reinhardt Marx, a member of the pope’s private council of nine cardinals, and the head of the German bishops’ conference. Marx said that it was Pope Francis who had “pushed the door open” on these topics.

“Up to now, these two issues have been absolutely non-negotiable. Although they had failed to get the two-thirds majority, the majority of the synod fathers had nevertheless voted in their favor,” he told Die Ziet.

“They are still part of the text,” Marx said. “I especially asked the pope about that, and the pope said he wanted all the points published together with all the voting results. He wanted everyone in the church to see where we stood.”

What some have argued is the Synod’s apparent program of easing the Church’s opposition to adultery, homosexuality, and other sexual sins has prompted some prelates to identify it as one of the great crisis points of Church history. Bishop Athanasius Schneider, who did not attend the Synod but said he had reflected deeply on the proceedings, said that it is a sign that the Church is entering a period comparable to that of its tumultuous early centuries.

“We are living in an un-Christian society, in a new paganism,” Schneider told an interviewer after the Synod closed.

“The temptation today for the clergy is to adapt to the new world to the new paganism, to be collaborationists. We are in a similar situation to the first centuries, when the majority of the society was pagan, and Christianity was discriminated against.”

He continued, “Unfortunately there were in the first century members of the clergy and even bishops who put grains of incense in front of the statue of the Emperor or of a pagan idol or who delivered the books of the Holy Scripture to be burned.”

In our times, he said, clergy and bishops are not being asked to pinch incense to the emperor, but “to collaborate with the pagan world today in this dissolution of the Sixth Commandment and in the revision of the way God created man and woman.” These clergy, he said, would be “traitors of the Faith; they are participating ultimately in pagan sacrifice.”

Pope backtracks on rabbit comments

Pope Francis gestures as he speaks with journalists on the flight back from Istanbul to Rome

Pope Francis on Wednesday described large families as a “gift from God”, just days after he said Catholics did not need to “breed like rabbits”.

In an apparent row back from comments he made on his way back from the Philippines, the Argentinian pontiff argued that an unfair economic system is the primary cause of poverty, rather than overpopulation.

“The meetings with families and young people in Manila were stand-out moments during the visit to the Philippines,” Francis told a crowd of around 7000 gathered in St Peter’s square for his weekly audience.

“Healthy families are essential to the life of society. It provides us with consolation and hope to see so many large families who welcome children as a gift from God,” he said.

“These families know that each child is a blessing.”

Francis surprised reporters on the papal plane on Sunday by recounting an anecdote about how he had once asked a mother who had seven children by caesarian section and was pregnant with her eighth if she wanted to “leave behind seven young orphans”.

“She said, ‘I trust in God.’ But God gave us the means to be responsible,” Francis said. “Some think – and excuse the term – that to be good Catholics, they must be like rabbits.”

Following the Church’s teachings did not mean “Christians should have children one after the other”, he added in comments that made headlines worldwide.

Catholic teaching prohibits the use of artificial contraception but allows the use of the so-called rhythm method, where couples avoid unwanted pregnancy by planning sex on days during the woman’s menstrual cycle on which she is less likely to conceive.

Poverty link

Francis’s comments had particular resonance in the Philippines, where large families are seen by some as perpetuating and exacerbating poverty levels which act as a restraint on development.

The Church claims more than 80 percent of the country’s 100 million as its followers and it waged a 15-year battle to block a family planning law. The law was finally introduced last year, allowing the state to distribute free contraceptives.

The Church’s opposition to contraception was formalised by former pope Paul VI in 1968, as the birth control pill was beginning to be widely used in the developed world.

On Sunday, the current pontiff described his predecessor as a “prophet” who had been rightly concerned about ideas advocating restrictions on the poor having children.

At the same time, Francis appeared to approvingly cite population experts who say three children per family is an ideal number.

Whatever his exact thinking on the subject, the emphasis was different on Wednesday.

“I hear some people saying that families with many children and the birth of many babies are among the causes of poverty,” the pope said.

“That seems to me to be a simplistic opinion. I can say, we all can say, that the principal cause of poverty is an economic system that has removed man from its centre and replaced him with the God of money.”

A pithy Pope

Francis’s “rabbit” comments came shortly after he made waves by suggesting, in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo massacre, that anyone who mocked someone else’s faith could expect a violent response.

“If a good friend speaks badly of my mother, he can expect to get punched,” he said.

The comment, which was widely criticised in liberal circles, reflected the 78-year-old’s tendency to express his ideas on complex issues of theology and religious practise in pithy soundbites.

These have included “a poor Church, for the poor,” which he coined at the start of a papacy marked by efforts to reach out to the world’s downtrodden while simultaneously slimming down and shaking up the Vatican’s once spendthrift bureaucracy.

“Who am I to judge,” encapsulated the more compassionate approach he wants the Church to adopt on homosexuality.

Such comments have helped make Francis a global superstar and bring lapsed Catholics back to the Church in huge numbers but both the “rabbits” and Charlie Hebdo comments have shown his communications touch is not infallible.

Pope Francis Equates Christian Fundamentalists to Islamist Killers & Terrorists!

Resist Bergoglio!

Resist Bergoglio!

Pope Francis equated Christianity with Islam while leaving Turkey.
“We have our share of fundamentalists” too.

The pope also said fighting poverty and hunger were key to defeating Islamist killers.
Ugh.
The Jerusalem Post reported:

Pope Francis said Sunday that equating Islam with violence was wrong and called on Muslim leaders to issue a global condemnation of terrorism to help dispel the stereotype.

Francis, the leader of 1.2 billion Roman Catholics, told reporters aboard his plane returning from a visit to Turkey that he understood why Muslims were offended by many in the West who automatically equated their religion with terrorism.

Francis’ predecessor, Benedict XVI, caused storms of protest throughout the Islamic world in 2006, when he made a speech that suggested to many Muslims that he believed Islam espoused violence.

Benedict said he had been misunderstood and apologized. But this year, the image of a violent religion has once more been promoted by Islamic State, who have seized swathes of Syria and Iraq, slaughtering or driving out Shi’ite Muslims, Christians and others who do not share their radical brand of Sunni Islam.

The Argentine pope, who has been trying to foster cooperation with moderate Islam in order to work for peace and protect Christians in the Middle East, said it was wrong for anyone to react to terrorism by being “enraged” against Islam.

“You just can’t say that, just as you can’t say that all Christians are fundamentalists. We have our share of them (fundamentalists). All religions have these little groups,” he said.

Muslims slaughtered 683 innocents THIS WEEK.
Christian fundamentalists have killed no one.
Someone needs to talk with this pope!!

Pope Francis vs. St. Francis of Assisi – the “Blue Mosque” Affair

Pope Francis vs. St. Francis of Assisi

Contrast: Francis at the Blue Mosque, Francis of Assisi before the Sultan

By John Vennari

Pope Francis has “dared to do what none of his predecessors had ever done,” Le Figero’s Jean-Marie Guénois rejoiced, “to pray openly, side-by-side with a Muslim dignitary”.

The event took place at the Blue Mosque on November 29, the second day of Francis’ visit to Istanbul.

In 2006, Pope Benedict XVI – the ever-zealous advocate of Conciliar ecumenism – visited the Mosque but supposedly remained in contemplation. This gave rise to speculation as to whether or not the Pontiff actually prayed in the Mosque, and also gave rise to scandal.

Francis, according to Guénois, removed any hint of ambiguity. The Pontiff “bowed his head for long time while deeply closing his eyes from two to three minutes, in order to obviously pray – and to make clear he was praying. And this was in the direction of Mihrab, the niche in the wall framed by two pillars that indicates the qibla, that is, the direction of the Kaaba in Mecca.”

Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi confirmed that the act was, in fact, a “silent adoration.” According to Lombardi, the Pope had also said to the Muslim Mufti, “we must adore God.”[1]

Ecumenism sin against faith

This action defies Catholic Tradition, spurns the perennial Papal doctrine against religious indifferentism, and mocks true Catholics such as St. Francis of Assisi who visited Muslims for one purpose alone, to convert them to Christ’s one true Church.

Bergoglio: Contra Saint Francis

Present-day Catholics, starting with the majority of Church leaders, appear to be ruled by sentiment rather than objective truth. We’ve seen the alleged comparisons made between St. Francis of Assisi and the Papa Bergoglio: Both are named “Francis,” both are concerned for the poor, both preach a kind of poverty, both “dialogue” with Muslims. Therefore, they are alike: Pope Francis follows in the footsteps of Francis of Assisi.

The assessment could not be more false. Here we will only contrast Francis of Assisi with Papa Bergoglio concerning Islam.

Saint Francis sought to convert Muslims from the darkness of their false religion to Christ’s one true Church for salvation.

By contrast, Pope Francis visits Muslims to pursue more dialogue, to revel in artificial religious camaraderie, and to indirectly assure Muslims they are on their own legitimate path to “God” and need not convert to Christ’s Church.

Such a program would horrify St. Francis of Assisi, as it would horrify any right-thinking Catholic.

Saint Francis and the Sultan

Around the year 1220 Saint Francis of Assisi sailed to Egypt to join the Christian army that was besieging Damietta. He did not go to fight alongside Crusaders but to preach Christ to the Infidels.

Saint Francis approached the Papal Legate who was with the army and “requested leave to cross over to the Muslim lines to preach to the Muslims.”

This rattled the Papal Legate, who knew the Sultan had offered a golden ducat for the head of any Christian sent to him.
In response, the Papal Legate simply asked Francis not to bring shame on the Christian name.

That was all Francis needed. He and some companions struck out at once for the Sultan’s camp.

They saw two lambs on the road while on their way. Francis took this as a good sign, saying to his comrades, “Behold I send you forth as sheep among wolves.”

Muslim soldiers apprehended Francis, took him before the Sultan and Francis began to preach. He spoke with power and conviction, zeal and fire. The love of God flowed through him. He was like a blast furnace, infectious, captivating.

The Sultan found himself drawn in by the power of Francis’ words, and ordered him to be treated with courtesy while at camp.

It appears that Francis stayed for a few days, and the Sultan asked Francis to remain in his court.

“Willingly,” answered Francis, “if you and your people will convert to Christ.”

Francis continued, “If you hesitate as to the merits of the law of Muhammad and the faith of Christ, command that a great fire be lighted, and I together with your priests, will enter the fire that you may know which is the more worthy and true.”

The Sultan replied that none of their Muftis would accept the challenge.

“Then if you promise for yourself and your people, to come to the worship of Christ if I come out of the fire unhurt,” Francis responded, “I will enter the fire alone.”

He added, “If I am burnt up, impute it to my sins, but if the Divine Power protects me, acknowledge Christ to be true God and the Savior of all.”

The Sultan dared not accept the challenge from the holy mendicant, but was captivated by Francis nonetheless, and asked him to accept some precious gifts if not for himself, then at least for the poor.

Francis responded this was not the purpose of his visit, and returned to Europe.[2]

What do you notice?

1) Saint Francis preached to the Sultan for no other purpose than the conversion of the Muslims;

2) The Sultan refused to convert, so Francis stopped the dialogue.

Saint Francis of Assisi: No Ecumenist

Saint Francis of Assisi was firmly committed to the truth that “outside the Catholic Church, there is no salvation.” He was an apostle of Christ who preached the Gospel,

1) for the salvation of those souls who were already Catholic, but had fallen away from the Gospel ideal;

2) for the salvation of infidels and non-believers, whom he knew would be lost if they did not embrace Christ and His one true Church.

Unusual Meeting at the Vatican: Communism: A Friend of the Poor?

communism a friend of the poor - Newchurch Bergoglio

Message to Vatican’s World Meeting of Popular Movements: ‘Detestable’ Communism is the Worst Enemy of the Poor!

It is not uncommon to hear that communism was “a good idea poorly implemented.”

In spite of its actual experiences – all ending with catastrophic results – the idea that communism contains a “positive core” and is “friendly to the poor” reemerged at the World Meeting of Popular Movements organized at the Vatican from October 28 to 30 by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace. It was held in the presence of Pope Francis and over one hundred representatives from movements often linked to the extreme left.

Besides being doctrinally questionable, this thesis is historically false. On the Catholic side, it was enunciated by Jacques Maritain, the ideologue of Catholic Action’s turn to the left. He applied it indiscriminately to both socialism and communism: “In the nineteenth century, socialism has been a protest of human consciousness and its more generous instincts against evils that cried out to heaven…. Socialism has loved the poor.”[1]

In this lyrical vision, Maritain included Soviet Communism: “For the first time in history, Maxim Gorky recently wrote about Soviet communism, the true love of man is organized as a creative force and sets as a goal the emancipation of thousands of workers. We believe in the profound sincerity of Gorky’s words.”[2]

This was also the thesis of Uruguayan Alberto Methol Ferré, philosophical mentor to an entire generation of Latin American churchmen of the “populist” line. According to Methol, the evil of Marxism lies only in his atheism: “The Church essentially rejected Marxism on account of the atheism it contained.” However, the system of Karl Marx had a valid element: “Marxism’s more valid [aspect] was its critique of capitalism.”[3]

his “valid” element leads the Uruguayan philosopher to defend aspects of the so-called liberation theology, of Marxist origin: “The theology of liberation can also be viewed as an attempt to assume the best of Marxism…. This theology has rendered an invaluable service by rethinking policy in light of the common good and therefore in close relationship with the preferential option for the poor and [for] justice.”[4]

It is amazing to see personages from the Catholic world exalting a system which the Magisterium of the Church defined as “detestable sect,”[5] “abominable sect,”[6] “intrinsically evil” system,[7] “shame of our time,”[8] the result of a “fundamental error;”[9] a system with which, in the words of Pius XI, “no collaboration can be admitted in any field.” Indeed, by a decree of the Holy Office of 1949, any collaboration with communism would lead to excommunication latae sententiae.
