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.’

Bergoglio says he’s ‘scared of rigid, fundamentalist’ priests!

TRADITIONAL CATHOLICISM - BETTER A FEW CATHOLICS LEFT...

Anti-pope Bergoglio says he’s ‘scared of rigid, fundamentalist’ priests because ‘they bite!!!’

Lukewarm and anti-Catholic clergy within, is to be feared because they lead many souls into HELL!! If Bergoglio had any love for God and the faithful he would be more concerned about weeding out the sodomite and pedophile priests!

Pope Francis says that overly pious priests scare him, and he tries to stay clear of them as much as possible!!

According to Raw Story, the well-loved pope said on Friday during a conference on training for the priesthood that he is instinctively suspicious of priests who are hypocritical of their own religiousness.

“I will tell you sincerely, I’m scared of rigid priests,” the 78-year-old pope jokingly said. “I keep away from them. They bite!”

Pope Francis used humour to convey his message concerning a serious matter. A lot of unstable individuals seek out a clerical career, he explained, and unless they are weeded out properly by the church, the faithful will suffer.

This is why the pope strongly suggests that seminaries should always assess not just the spiritual state of candidates but also their physical and psychological condition. “There are often young men who are psychologically unstable without knowing it and who look for strong structures to support them. For some it is the police or the army but for others it is the clergy,” the pope said.

He warned that these disorders only manifest at a later date, so it will not be easy to spot it from the get-go.

However, the pope said he personally finds it worrisome when a priest takes pride in being extremely devout.

“When a youngster is too rigid, too fundamentalist, I don’t feel confident (about him). Behind it there is something he himself does not understand. Keep your eyes open!

“If you are sick, if you are neurotic, go and see a doctor, spiritual or physical,” Pope Francis then suggested to those who might be unfit to join the church. “The doctor will give you pills. But, please, don’t let the faithful pay for neurotic priests.

Caution Bergoglio Speaks: Scalfari’s New Editorial With Pope Francis’ Pearls

Caution Bergoglio gave another interview...

Caution Bergoglio gave another interview…

Bergoliata or Scalfariade: Scalfari’s New Editorial With Pope Francis’ Pearls

(Rome) The “interviews” by atheist and Freemason Eugenio Scalfari with Pope Francis have become as famous as infamous. On the 15th of March it was time again. Eugenio Scalfari has published in his house journal La Repubblica,   an editorial about Pope Francis. He’s cited actual or alleged statements  which Pope Francis is said to have expressed  in one of the conversations between the Catholic Church and head of the left, anti-clerical opinion makers. Scalfari would not be  Scalfari, if he did not present himself in his editorial as the main interpreter of the Argentine Pope’s thoughts and actions. This is only one page. The others are homework assignments that Scalfari is giving the Pope on the way. Tasks that  the Pope would have to do in the atheist’s terms. A new Bergogliata or new Scalfariada?

Scalfaris parallel magisterium with increased destructive power

The duo Scalfari-Bergoglio has appeared again on March 15 in the daily newspaper La Repubblica.  Whether virtual or real, who knows? It means it is difficult to distinguish which are reported as a direct playback of quotes  being in fact from Pope Francis and which are from  Scalfari in the role of a more or less accepted papal prompter. Above all  this says nothing about the broad impact.  It is at Scalfari’s disposal and it’s international. If he ascribes to the Pope something,  many readers will take it unquestioningly at face value. All the more so, the more clearly they are close to Scalfari’s positions.Yet it also plays hardly any role to point out that such private opinions expressed are not from the Pope of the papal Magisterium when the “unofficial” teachings are much more widespread than the official one.

The fact is that Scalfari’s Bergogliades promote a parallel magisterium, the ever deepening furrows in the sensus fideieats of the faithful. The following excerpts from the editorial require no comment. They are of a certain caliber, aimed at the Catholic doctrine and ecclesiastical discipline, whose destructive power has reached a new level.

If the allegations are put to the Pope in his mouth, not be immediately and unambiguously denied and corrected, by the Pope, or by those who are engaged to the Holy See, they will cast an even darker shadow on the Argentine Pope and  pontificate. It is a Pope, for the masses who are so prone to idolatry, who is becoming more and more a stumbling block and irritation for believers.

“That which Francis Can Tell the Europe of Non-believers”

Eugenio Scalfari

[…] Whoever has had the grace to meet Pope Francis knows that the egoism of the most dangerous enemy of our species.  The animal is selfish because it is only guided by his instincts, the most important thing is their own survival. Man is also driven by socializing and he therefore feels love towards the other, in addition to the survival of the species to which he belongs. If egoism wins the upper hand and the love for others is suffocated, it darkens the divine spark which is in him and condemns himself.

HERETIC BERGOGLIO BELIEVES ALL ARE SAVED!!! NOT SO HUMBLE, WHO AM I TO JUDGE JORGE THE DESTROYER IS IN FOR ONE RUDE AWAKENING!!!

What happens to these extinct souls? Will they be punished? And how?

Francis’ answer is unambiguous and clear: There is no penalty but the annihilation of that soul. All others live on to share the  the happiness in the presence of the Father. The extinguished souls have no part in this feast, with the death of the body is its end and this is the motivation of the missionary Church: to save the lost. This is also the reason why Francis is through and through, a Jesuit. […] ”

Francis: “There is no penalty. The souls are extinguished “

This “extinction” of  souls poses “a big problem,” said Chiesa e postconcilio . “With the death of the body ends earthly existence, but immortality continues to participate in the glory of God (paradise) or eternal damnation as a result of rejection and rebellion against the Creator and Lord, universorum Rex.

 What more do you expect from Pope of Mercy, who has banished  justice and the sacrifice of Christ? Of which he does not speak and do not even celebrate? What else does  that “there is no going back” than its permanent reform?” asked the Roman Catholic blog.

“In any case, there are serious allegations that, even be they  distorted, will be publicly attributed to the Pope. For this reason it would be to deny a unique way to denounce it and that with maximum visibility. Just as serious  appears the inertia of that part of the clergy, which does not follow him without hesitation, as they have not done with any other pope  in the past 50 years,  but to actively wait for a solemn act of the Magisterium, that will never come. In the meantime, the confusion increases and with it, gives “darkness” free reign,  because certain Church leaders break down the Church equity entrusted to defend the mystical body. This is absolutely serious and really dramatic. It is useless to wait for formal acts of government. The dissolution has  become a part of the practice and the words of permission,” said Chiesa e postconcilio .

Scalfari’s “Homework” for the Pope I: abolish the Priesthood

The actual or alleged statements by Pope Francis are remarkable. You also remember the refusal of Francis to correct statements made ​​once before, let alone such as Scalfaris. Instead, the previous interviews, although Scalfari was revealed to have formulated the answers of the Pope himself,   have however kept faithful in content to the Pope’s statements, which  the Vatican publishing company published in book form.

Scalfari continues: “In no other religion are there  priests called to celibacy and no other religion’s doctrine was converted into a codex. The Jews have their writings and their rules, but the rabbis are teachers, they have neither a sacrament nor celibacy obligations. They represent and interpret the Scriptures. That’s their job, nothing more.

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, in France, Urges Europe to Open Its Arms to Refugees!!

francis share wealth

Bergoglio: “We cannot allow the Mediterranean to become a vast cemetery!” “The boats landing daily on the shores of Europe are filled with men and women who need acceptance and assistance.”                        

STRASBOURG, France — Bearding Europe’s populist lion in its den on Tuesday, Pope Francis told the European Parliament, an elected assembly with many anti-immigration nationalist members, that Europe had become too “fearful and self-absorbed,” and that it needed to recover its confidence and give “acceptance and assistance” to people fleeing war and poverty.

But the pope also embraced one of the favorite themes of populist politicians who are hostile to the European Union. He warned that the 28-nation bloc faced “growing mistrust on the part of citizens toward institutions considered to be aloof, engaged in laying down rules perceived as insensitive to individual peoples, if not downright harmful.”

Public discontent with the European Union’s bureaucracy, widely seen as wasteful, elitist and self-serving, helped propel France’s far-right National Front party and several other once-fringe nationalist groups to strong gains in May elections for the European Parliament. In France, the National Front came ahead of all other parties.

Complaining that Europe had lost its vitality and often seemed “elderly and haggard,” the pope took a swipe at technocrats who seek to draw together Europe through rigid rules and regulations, warning that “the great ideas which once inspired Europe seem to have lost their attraction, only to be replaced by the bureaucratic technicalities of its institutions.”

The European Parliament, which meets in both this French city near the German border and the Belgian capital, Brussels, has become an emblem of the waste and detachment from ordinary people’s concerns that have drained support from the so-called European project, a half-century-long push for greater integration.

Francis, an Argentine who last year became the first non-European pope in more than a millennium, spent less than four hours in Strasbourg, the shortest foreign trip by a modern pope. After addressing the European Parliament, he spoke to the Council of Europe, a second European assembly based in Strasbourg with a palatial building, little authority and virtually no resonance with the general public.

The last time a pope addressed the European Parliament was in 1988, when Pope John Paul II faced heckling from Ian Paisley, a Protestant pastor and member of the assembly from Northern Ireland. Mr. Paisley accused the pope of being “the Antichrist,” and secularists denounced him over his insistent warnings that Europe faced ruin if it did not recover its Christian roots.

Pope Francis, by contrast, faced no such disruptions and instead stirred repeated rounds of applause from members of Parliament. He referred to Europe’s Christian past and the dangers of losing it but focused instead on current issues like poverty, immigration and joblessness.

John Thavis, an American writer on the Roman Catholic Church and author of “The Vatican Diaries,” said Pope Francis had a very different take on Europe than his two immediate predecessors, a Pole and a German, for whom “Europe was the center of the universe.”

Francis, he said, shared their concern about declining Christian faith among Europeans, but “his priorities do not include picking an ideological battle with secularists” as “he is more focused on the here and now.”

In his speech to the European Parliament, Francis received particularly loud applause with remarks that seemed to challenge a largely German-scripted economic policy rooted in austerity as the cure to Europe’s economic ills. “The time has come to promote policies which create employment, but above all, there is a need to restore dignity to labor by ensuring proper working conditions,” the pope said.

After his election as pontiff last year after the surprise retirement of Benedict XVI, Francis signaled his interest in the plight of the dispossessed by making his first trip outside Rome to the Italian island of Lampedusa, near where scores of immigrants have drowned while trying to reach Europe from Africa in flimsy boats. He denounced what he called the “globalization of indifference” to the suffering of immigrants and returned to the theme in Strasbourg.

Pope: Judas A Sinner, But No Worse than Anyone Else!!

The first sacrilegious Communion was committed by Judas Iscariot!

Not according to Jesus Christ!

Filius quidem hominis vadit, sicut scriptum est de illo: vae autem homini illi, per quem Filius hominis tradetur! bonum erat ei, si natus non fuisset homo ille.

The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written of him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of man shall be betrayed: it were better for him, if that man had not been born.  Matthew 26: 24 – DRV

Then Jesus said to the twelve: Will you also go away? And Simon Peter answered him: Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life. And we have believed and have known, that thou art the Christ, the Son of God. Jesus answered them: Have not I chosen you twelve; and one of you is a devil? Now he meant Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon: for this same was about to betray him, whereas he was one of the twelve.   Matthew 6: 67-71 DRV

Betrayer Judas Iscariot committed the MOST GRAVE SIN OF DEICIDE!! The Gravest of sins which a sinner can commit is Deicide and as usual Francis – Bergoglio has no concept of the grave matter of Mortal Sin and has has only compassion for the victim only the Poor Sinner. We are talking about a man who has no regard for God’s Divine Law! Bergoglio is our Chastisement.

Jesus betrayed by Judas 'Bergoglio'

VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis says Judas Iscariot was not the only sinner among the Twelve Apostles but he was the one who “closed himself to love.”

In a homily during his morning Mass at the Vatican on Tuesday, the pope spoke of the universality of sin while encouraging the faithful to fully immerse themselves in the Catholic Church and not simply stand on the threshold of their faith.

Francis stressed that Jesus opened the doors of his church to everyone without distinction, irrespective of their sins, and built the church on the foundation of the Apostles, “all of them sinners.”

“As St. Paul says, this church is built on the foundations of the Apostles; he chose 12 of them. All of them sinners,” the pope said in his homily.

“Judas was not the one who sinned the most: I don’t know who sinned the most. … Judas, poor man(!!!) is the one who closed himself to love and that is why he became a traitor. And they all ran away during the difficult time of the Passion and left Jesus alone. They are all sinners.”

The pope said Jesus wanted everyone to be inside the church he created, not as strangers simply passing through, but with the “rights of a citizen” with their roots in the church.

Francis has referred to the role of Judas several times since becoming pope in 2013. In May last year, he said that Judas had stood apart “in his solitude” and his selfishness grew to the point where he betrayed Jesus.

The pope warned that those who “isolate their conscience in selfishness” end up losing and Judas ended up that way as “an idolater, attached to money” for the 30 pieces of silver he received for betraying Jesus.

Bergoglio: First Communion -70 years ago to the day / God does Not Exist!!

Pope Francis greets the crowd during his general audience in St Peter's Square today (CNS)

Pope Francis recalls his first Communion

Unable to resist telling the world about a personal event that is dear to his heart, Pope Francis said that 70 years ago to the day, he celebrated his first Communion.

“They say that you shouldn’t talk about personal things, but I can’t resist the temptation,” he said at his weekly general audience in St Peter’s Square today.

“Today I am so thankful to the Lord because 70 years ago I made my first Communion,” he said with a broad smile. “Let us all thank the Lord for our baptism, all of us thank him for our first Communion,” he said.

The 77-year-old Pope revealed the personal detail to underline what it means to enter into communion with the Catholic Church and to seek communion with Christians who belong to other confessions or traditions.

This theme of Christian unity was part of the series of audience talks the Pope has been giving on the nature of the Church. Leading the general audience meant Pope Francis skipped the morning session of the extraordinary Synod of Bishops, which is meeting to discuss the pastoral care of families.

In his catechesis, the Pope lamented the long history of divisions among Christians, saying such separations “wound the Church and wound Christ,” whose desire is “that they may all be one, so that the world may believe.”

People’s efforts to share the Gospel message will be “much more credible” when all Christians show they are “able to live in communion and love each other,” the pope said.

Unity was already under threat while Jesus was still with his disciples, who would argue “among themselves who was better, who was more important,” the pope said. In fact, history shows “the church is tempted by evil, which tries to divide her, and has been marked unfortunately by serious and painful divisions;” some breaks have lasted so long it’s hard to recall all the reasons for the separation to begin with and to find possible solutions, he said.

The reasons Christian communities are divided, he said, include differences in “dogmatic and moral principles and theological concepts, pastoral differences, political motives and self-interest to the point of clashing due to resentments and personal ambition.”

But one thing is certain, he said, “in one way or another, behind these lacerations there is always pride and selfishness, which are the cause of every disagreement and make us intolerant, incapable of listening and accepting those who have a view or a position that is different from ours.”

What can Christians do today in light of so many divisions, he asked. Will people be resigned to the current state of affairs and give up, be indifferent, “or will we firmly believe that one can and must walk in the direction of reconciliation and full communion?”

Full communion, he said, is “everyone being able to participate together in the body and blood of Christ.”

Catholics are called to pray for Christian unity, be open to “dialogue and encounter,” welcome what is “valid and positive that is offered us even from those who think differently from us or who pose a different position.”

The Pope said, “It’s painful” to see so many divisions among Christians when they all believe in Jesus Christ as Lord, God the Father and the Holy Spirit.

Focusing on what unites Christians and not what divides them involves “concretely adhering to the truth, together with the ability to forgive, feeling a part of the same Christian family” and working together in charity helping others, he said.

Let theologians debate and discuss the issues at hand and “seek the theological truth because it is a duty,” he said. “But we, we will walk together, praying for one another, doing charitable work and that is how we will build communion by walking together.”

Later in the audience, the Pope expressed his support of organ donation, calling it “a distinctive witness of love for others.”

Pointing to the October 11 European day of awareness about organ donation, the Pope emphasized the need to safeguard the rights of donors by ensuring “certainty of death”, given the existence of some questions about methods of ascertaining brain death in an individual.

Pope Francis asked that “abuses, trafficking and the sale (of organs) be avoided.” While riding in his popemobile to greet pilgrims at the beginning of audience, Pope Francis pointed to an exuberant young boy, who was cheering along with his classmates, all sporting orange baseball caps.

The Pope gestured as if to ask the boy if he wanted to go for a ride, and the boy enthusiastically agreed and tried to jump the high wooden barrier, succeeding only with the help of a Vatican guard. One of the boy’s classmates didn’t want to be left behind and the pope gestured for him to come along, too.

The two boys, about 8 or 10 years old, sat down behind the Pope in the popemobile, hugged each other and pumped their fists in the air with excitement.

The Pope let them ride several laps around the square, and when he brought them back to their group, a guard insisted the boys not get down without giving the pope a kiss on the cheek.

Francis: “God does Not Exist! … There is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit!”

 October 9, 2014. Exactly 56 years since the death of Pope Pius XII. Vatican Radio publishes a summary of the “Pope’s” latest homily, quoting him as follows:

 So often [people ask]: ‘But do you believe?’: ‘Yes! Yes! ‘; ‘What do you believe in?’; ‘In God!’; ‘But what is God for you?’; ‘God, God’. But God does not exist: Do not be shocked! So God does not exist! There is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, they are persons, they are not some vague idea in the clouds … This God spray does not exist! The three persons exist!

Bergoglio speaking well of his own again…

Bergoglio: There are bombs in here!! Yes, Bergoglio is absolutely correct! The worst bomb inside the Vatican! Threatens the life of the church, it “sows destruction” and “destroys the lives of others!!”

Pope launches alarm, tells Vatican security force to be ‘gossip police!!’

VATICAN CITY – The biggest threat facing the Vatican isn’t a bomb or bullet from the outside, but the insidious work of mischief-makers within, who plant discord and resentment, Pope Francis told the Vatican’s security force.

“There are bombs in here, very dangerous bombs in here,” he told security personnel. “Please, keep your eyes open, because in the darkness of so many wicked lives, the enemy has sown weeds,” he said in his homily.

To help celebrate the Vatican security service’s patron saint, St. Michael the archangel, the pope celebrated Mass for security personnel in the chapel of the office governing Vatican City State Sept. 27. The Vatican newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano, published excerpts from the homily Sept. 29, the feast of the archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael.

The pope told his own “guardian angels” that their vocation is “to safeguard this state” so the church and the pope “can be free” to carry out their mission.

In addition to the more colorful Swiss Guard, the Vatican’s other security body is its own police force, the gendarme corps. The corps of about 130 men is responsible for papal security, crowd control in St. Peter’s Square and safety, law and order within the Vatican.

The pope said a good guardian, like the archangel, “has the courage to get rid of demons” and has the intelligence to be able to pick them out from the crowd. “He can’t be, excuse my terminology, an idiot; he has to be quick on the uptake and alert.”

He said he knows their job is to be like sentinels, keeping watch and guarding entrances, “doors and windows so no bombs get in.”

But, “I want to tell you something a bit sad; there are bombs in here” and it doesn’t matter if it’s “a homemade bomb or an atomic bomb,” every single one is “dangerous” and “there are many.”

“The worst bomb inside the Vatican is gossip,” which “threatens the life of the church and the life of (the Vatican) every day,” he said, because it “sows destruction” and “destroys the lives of others.”

While there are many religious and laypeople in the Vatican who are “sowing good seed,” the devil is still getting his way by using others “to sow weeds.”

Even the pope is not immune to this temptation, he said; it’s a danger “for me, too,” because “the devil gives you that yearning.”

So in addition to looking for the usual security threats, the pope told the security guards to also crack down on backstabbing and courageously call people out.

Stop them in their tracks and say, “Please sir, please ma’am, please father, please sister, please your Excellency, please your Eminence, please Holy Father, don’t gossip; that’s not allowed here,” the pope said.

Whatever gripes or problems people have, they should take them directly to the people involved without also complaining to the world, he said.

The sower of weeds meets a bitter end, he said, in “burning furnaces” and condemned to “disgrace and eternal abomination.”

But thanks to the security police’s added vigilance and help, “the final word written about our lives will be, ‘He was a good person. He sowed good seed,’ and not, ‘He was dreadful, he planted bombs of discord’ — that would be very sad.”

Pope Santa Marta: ‘Is it blasphemy when Jesus complains??

francis caution francis speaks

Is it blasphemy when Jesus complains – ‘Father, why have You forsaken me’? This is the mystery.’

Reflecting on the First Reading of the day, in which Job curses the day he was born, the Pope noted that his prayer at first appears to us like a curse. Pope Francis recalled how Job was “put to the test”, how he “lost his entire family, everything he possessed”, how he lost his health and “his body had become a plague, a disgusting plague”. The Pope said in that moment “he had lost all patience and he says these things. They are ugly! But he was always accustomed to speak the truth and this is the truth that he feels at that moment”. Pope Francis recalled how even Jeremiah, “uses almost the same words: ‘Cursed be the day I was born!'”, and then he asked: “But is this man blaspheming? This is my question: Is this man who is so very alone, blaspheming?”.

“Is it blasphemy when Jesus complains – ‘Father, why have You forsaken me’? This is the mystery. I have often listened to people who are experiencing difficult and painful situations, who have lost a great deal or feel lonely and abandoned and they come to complain and ask these questions: Why? Why? They rebel against God. And I say, ‘Continue to pray just like this, because this is a prayer’. It was a prayer when Jesus said to his father: ‘Why  have You forsaken me!'”.

The Pope continued that what Job is doing in the First Reading is praying, because prayer means being truthful before God. This was the only way Job could pray. “We should pray with reality – he added – true prayer comes from the heart, from the moment that we are living in”. “It is prayer in times of darkness, in those moments of life that seem hopeless, where we cannot see the horizon”. And so many people, so many today, are in the same situation as Job. So many good people, just like Job, do not understand what has happened to them, or why. Many brothers and sisters who have no hope. Just think of the tragedies, the great tragedies, for example, of these brothers and sisters of ours who because they are Christians were driven out of their homes and left with nothing: ‘But, Lord, I have believed in you. Why? Is believing in you a curse, Lord? ‘”.

“Just think of the elderly who are sidelined – he continued – think of the sick, of the many lonely people in hospitals”. The Pope assured that the Church prays for all of these people and for those of us when we walk in darkness. “The Church prays! She takes this pain upon herself and prays”. And those of us who “are not sick, or hungry, who have no pressing needs, when we suffer a little darkness of soul, act like martyrs and stop praying”. 

The Pope continued that there are even those who say: “I am angry with God, I will not go to Mass”. “But why? Over some trifling thing” is the answer. Pope Francis recalled that St. Therese of the Child Jesus, in the last months of her life, “tried to think of heaven, but heard a voice within herself, telling her not to be silly, not to be led astray by fantasies. Do you know what awaits you? Nothing!”.

We all go through this situation, we experience this situation. There are so many people who think it all ends in nothing.  Yet Saint Teresa, prayed and asked for strength to persevere in the dark. This is calledentering into patience. Our life is too easy, our complaints are overdramatized. Faced with the complaints of so many people, of so many brothers and sisters who are in the dark, who have almost lost all memory, almost lost all hope – who are experiencing this exile from themselves, who are exiled, even from themselves – nothing! Jesus walked this path: from sunset on the Mount of Olives to the last word from the Cross: ‘Father, why have you forsaken me!”.

Pope Francis concluded that there are two things that can help in such situations: “First, to prepare ourselves for when the darkness comes” which perhaps, will not be as hard as that of Job, “but which will come.  Prepare your heart for that moment”. Second: “Pray, pray as the Church prays, pray with the Church for so many brothers and sisters who suffer exile from themselves, who are in darkness and suffering, without hope at hand.” It is the prayer of the Church for these ‘Suffering Jesus’ who are everywhere”.

Bergoglio: Paul’s preaching didn’t come from a Pontifical University No! No! No!

francis one does not assume - sacred theology

Bergoglio: Paul’s preaching didn’t come from a Pontifical University No! No! No!

Bergoglio: Christian identity is not “academic degrees”, but being moved by the Holy Spirit…

“If we Christians do not fully understand the things of the Spirit, if we do not give or offer witness then we no identity”. “Often, so often, we find among our faithful, simple old women who perhaps didn’t even finish elementary school, but who can speak to us of things better than any theologian, because they have the Spirit of Christ.”

Vatican City (AsiaNews) – Christian identity does not come from knowledge, or “degrees”, but from being moved by the Holy Spirit, like Jesus, whose “authority” came from “the special anointing of the Holy Spirit”. This was the reflection proposed by Pope Francis during the mass celebrated this morning at Casa Santa Marta taken from the Gospel passage on the “authority” of Jesus.

He said the people were astonished at Christ’s teaching because he spoke with authority. Inspired by the passage from the Gospel Pope dwelt on the nature of Our Lord’s authority and, as a consequence that of the Christian. He said that Jesus was “not a common preacher,” because his “authority” comes from the ‘”special anointing of the Holy Spirit.” Jesus, he said, is “the Son of God, anointed and sent” to “bring salvation, to bring freedom.” And some, he noted, “were scandalized” by this style that belonged to Jesus, by its identity and freedom:

“We too can ask ourselves, what is our identity as Christians? Paul puts it very well today when he says: ‘And we speak about them not with words taught by human wisdom’. Paul’s preaching is not the result of a course at the Lateran, or the Gregorian [Pontifical Universities – ed]… No, no, no! Not human wisdom, no! But taught by the Spirit: Paul preached with the anointing of the Spirit, expressing spiritual things of the Spirit in spiritual terms. Man cannot understand the things of the Spirit of God by his own strength: Man alone cannot understand this!”

The ‘Bishop of Rome’, continued that this is why “if we Christians do not fully understand the things of the Spirit, if we do not give or offer witness then we no identity”. For some, he said, “these things of the Spirit are foolishness, they are not able to understand them”. The man moved by the Spirit, however, “judges everything: He is free and cannot be judged by anyone!!?”

“Now, we have the thought of Christ and that is the Spirit of Christ. This is the Christian identity. Not having the spirit of the world, that way of thinking, that way of judging … You can have five degrees in theology, but not have the Spirit of God! Maybe you’ll be a great theologian, but you are not a Christian because you do not have the Spirit of God !. That which gives authority, that which gives identity is the Holy Spirit, the anointing of the Holy Spirit.”

Pope Francis said that this is why “the people did not love those preachers, those teachers of the law, because they only spoke of theology, they did not speak to hearts, they gave no freedom”. These, he added, “were unable to help the people find their own identity, because they were not anointed by the Holy Spirit.”

“The authority of Jesus – and the authority of the Christian – comes from this ability to understand the things of the Spirit, to speak the language of the Spirit. It is from this anointing of the Holy Spirit. Often, so often, we find among our faithful, simple old women who perhaps didn’t even finish elementary school, but who can speak to us of things better than any theologian, because they have the Spirit of Christ. Exactly like St. Paul. We all need to ask for this. Lord grant us Christian identity, which You had. Grant us Your Spirit. Grant us Your way of thinking, feeling, speaking: May the Lord grant us the anointing of the Holy Spirit.”
