Antipope Francis rejects the Papacy.

The dogma of the Papacy is not only that one man has supreme authority in the Church, but that everyone else in the Church must accept that authority. Antipope Francis rejects that dogma, and thus he rejects the Papacy.

Francis’ November 30, 2014 responses to questions from journalists on the return flight from Turkey:

Alexey Bukalov of Russia: “Your Holiness, in thanking you for what you have done for the orthodox world, I would like to know, after this visit, and after this extraordinary meeting with the Patriarch of Constantinople, what is the outlook for relations with the Patriarchate of Moscow?”

Francis: “Last month, [Metropolitan] Hilarion attended the Synod as a delegate of Patriarch Kirill… Unity is a journey we have to take, but we need to do it together. This is spiritual ecumenism: praying together, working together. There are so many works of charity, so much work… Teaching together… Moving forward together. This is spiritual ecumenism. Then there is an ecumenism of blood: when they kill Christians, we have so many martyrsstarting with those in Uganda, canonized 50 years ago:half were Anglican, half Catholic, but the ones [who killed them] didn’t say: ‘You’re Catholic… you’re Anglican…’ No: ‘You are Christian’, and so their blood mixed. This is the ecumenism of blood. Our martyrs are crying out: ‘We are one! We already have unity, in spirit and in blood’. I don’t know if I told you the anecdote about Hamburg, which I heard from the parish priest of Hamburg. Did I tell you? When I was in Germany, I went to Hamburg to celebrate a baptism, and the parish priest was working on the cause for canonization of a priest who had been guillotined by the Nazis for having taught catechesis to the children. During his work on this cause, he discovered that in line behind the priest in question, there was a Lutheran pastor condemned to the guillotine for the same reason. The blood of these two mixed. And this parish priest went to the bishop and said: ‘I’m not taking this cause forward only for the priest: it’s either for both or for neither!’. This is ecumenism of blood, which helps us so much, which tells us so much…  I’ll say something that a few, perhaps, are not able to understand: the Eastern Catholic Churches have a right to exist, but uniatism is a dated word. We cannot speak in these terms today. We need to find another way. Now, ‘we land’ in Moscow. I told Patriarch Kirill, and he agreed, there is a willingness to meet. I told him: ‘I’ll go wherever you want, you call me and I’ll come’; and he too wants this… Hilarion suggested that the commission, for which he presides over the Russian Orthodox part, hold a study meeting on the question of Primacy. We have to continue in the footsteps of John Paul II: ‘Help me to find a form of Primacy that we can agree on’. This is what I can tell you.”[1]

Antipope Francis answers a question about the “Orthodox” (who reject the Catholic faith) by saying we need to pray, work, teach, and move forward together. Francis teaches that we “already have unity, in spirit and in blood” with non-Catholics. The Catholic Church teaches that unity only exists in the true Catholic Church. Francis once again teaches that there are non-Catholic martyrs, and that Anglicans “saints” were “canonized 50 years ago”. This is totally heretical and condemned by the infallible teaching of true Catholic popes. He even says that it was good for a “parish priest” to push for the canonization of a Lutheran “pastor”!

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, “Cantate Domino,” Session 11, 1441, ex cathedra: “… no one, whatever almsgiving he has practiced, even if he has shed blood for the name of Christ, can be saved, unless he has remained within the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church.”[2]

Pope Pelagius II, epistle (2) Dilectionis vestrae, 585: “Those who were not willing to be at agreement in the Church of God, cannot remain with God; although given over to flames and fires, they burn, or thrown to wild beasts, they lay down their lives, there will not be for them that crown of faith, but the punishment of faithlessness, not a glorious result (of religious virtue), but the ruin of despair. Such a one can be slain; he cannot be crowned.”[3]

Antipope Francis then teaches that “uniatism” is “a dated word”. Francis insists that “we cannot speak in these terms today”. Uniatism is “the union of an Eastern Rite church with the Roman Church in which the authority of the Papacy is accepted”.[4] So, the schismatic Francis is publicly declaring that having the schismatic churches accept the Papacy is outdated teaching. This is a public rejection of the Papacy by Francis. Francis then talks about how he told schismatic “Patriarch” Kirill: “I’ll go wherever you want, you call me and I’ll come”. “Pope” Francis will go wherever the schismatic leader wants him to go. Francis’ desire to please the schismatic leader is like an obedient dog responding to the call of his owner. This is Francis’ idea of how a “pope” runs “the Catholic Church” – conforming immediately to the desires of those who lead heretical and schismatic sects. Francis then says that he’s open to a change in Catholic teaching on the Papacy. Francis wants to find “a form of Primacy that we can agree on”. Francis is willing to further deny the Papacy to appease the schismatic “Orthodox” church. What an abomination.

Mimmo Muolo, of Avvenire: “I was struck by a phrase you used this morning during the Divine Liturgy: ‘I want to assure each one of you here that, to reach the desired goal of full unity, the Catholic Church does not intend to impose any conditions’. We would like to ask you to more fully explain this phrase, if possible, and whether it was in regard to the issue of Primacy, to which you referred earlier.”

Francis:  “That is not a condition: it’s an agreement, because they too want it; it’s an agreement to find a form that is more closely in line with that of the first centuriesthe Church has the shortcoming, the sinful habit of focusing too much on herself… And when the Church focuses too much on herself, divisions arise. And that’s what happened after the first millennium.  At the table today, Bartholomew and I were talking about the moment when a cardinal – I don’t remember which one – went to convey the Pope’s excommunication to the Patriarch: the Church was focusing on herself too much at that moment! She wasn’t looking to Jesus Christ. I believe that all these problems which arise between us, among Christians – at least speaking about our Catholic Church – come from focusing on oneself: we become self-referential.”[5]

Here Francis says again that he wants an agreement (on the meaning of the Papacy) with the “Orthodox” that will be “more closely in line with that of the first centuries”. This denies Vatican I, which taught that Catholic truth on the Papacy was held in all generations of Church history. Francis’ statement clearly means “a form” of the “Papacy” that is in line with the schismatic “Orthodox” teaching on this issue. People need to consider this carefully, for it’s an unbelievable denial of the papal office. Next, Antipope Francis says the Holy Catholic Church has sin – that it has a “sinful habit”. The “sin,” according to Francis, is the teaching of Vatican I on the requirement of all professing Christians to accept papal primacy. Francis is calling Vatican I “sin”.

Pope Hadrian I, Second Council of Nicaea, 787: “… Christ our God, when He took for His Bride His Holy Catholic Church, having no blemish or wrinkle, promised he would guard her and assured His holy disciples saying, I am with you every day until the consummation of the world.”[6]

Francis says the Catholic Church “focuses too much on herself” and should also focus on the other heretical and schismatic churches. Francis then condemns Pope Saint Leo IX’s excommunication of Michael Cerularius, the “Patriarch” of Constantinople. An interesting fact to consider about this event is that Pope Saint Leo IX refused to call Cerularius “Ecumenical Patriarch”.[7] Yet, Francis and the other Vatican II antipopes repeatedly referred to the schismatic leaders of the “Orthodox” church of Constantinople as “Ecumenical Patriarch”.

Francis’ November 30, 2014 address “at the conclusion of the Liturgy”:

Your Holiness, beloved brother Bartholomew,

When I was the Archbishop of Buenos Aires, I often took part in the celebration of the Divine Liturgy of the Orthodox communities there. Today, the Lord has given me the singular grace to be present in this Patriarchal Church of Saint George for the celebration of the Feast of the holy Apostle Andrew, the first-called, the brother of Saint Peter, and the Patron Saint of the Ecumenical Patriarchate. Meeting each other, seeing each other face to face, exchanging the embrace of peace, and praying for each other, are all essential aspects of our journey towards the restoration of full communion… I believe that it is important to reaffirm respect for this principle as an essential condition, accepted by both, for the restoration of full communion, which does not signify the submission of one to the other, or assimilation. Rather, it means welcoming all the gifts that God has given to each…”[8]

Francis tells the schismatic leader that, when he was the “Archbishop” of Buenos Aires, he “often took part in the celebration of the Divine Liturgy of the Orthodox communities there”. The Catholic Church has taught throughout history that to take part in a schismatic liturgy is a mortal sin.  For example, if anyone looked at almost any moral theology manual before Vatican II, they would see that it clearly states that active participation in a non-Catholic service is a mortal sin. Francis speaks proudly of the mortal sins he “often took part in” back in Buenos Aires. Francis then asks the schismatics to pray for him. Francis explains what “the restoration of full communion” means to the leaders of the Vatican II sect. It means that the schismatics don’t need to submit to the Papacy or to any teachings of the Catholic Church they don’t agree with. Francis says that we must welcome “all the gifts that God has given” to the schismatic “Orthodox” church.

Francis’ November 30, 2014 common declaration with “Patriarch” Bartholomew:

“We, Pope Francis and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I, express our profound gratitude to God for the gift of this new encounter enabling us, in the presence of the members of the Holy Synod, the clergy and the faithful of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, to celebrate together the feast of Saint Andrew, the first–called and brother of the Apostle Peter… To this end, we offer the assurance of our fervent prayer as Pastors of the Church, askingour faithful to join us in praying ‘that all may be one, that the world may believe’ (Jn 17:21)… we also recognize the importance of promoting a constructive dialog with Islam based on mutual respect and friendship. Inspired by common values and strengthened by genuine fraternal sentiments, Muslims and Christians are called to work together for the sake of justice, peace and respect for the dignity and rights of every person… Our thoughts turn to all the faithful of our Churches throughout the world, whom we greet…”[9]

In his public declaration of “faith”, Francis teaches that an openly schismatic leader is a “pastor of the Church”. Francis says we are “called to work together” with Muslims with “respect”, “inspired by common values”. Francis also calls schismatics “the faithful”, and asks to join in prayer with them.

Francis’ November 29, 2014 address during “Ecumenical Prayer Service” with schismatic “Orthodox leader” Bartholomew:

Your Holiness, my dear Brother,

Each evening brings a mixed feeling of gratitude for the day which is ending and of hope-filled trust as night falls. This evening my heart is full of gratitude to God who allows me to be here in prayer with Your Holiness and with this sister Church after an eventful day during my Apostolic Visit… With this joyful hope, filled with gratitude and eager expectation, I extend to Your Holiness and to all present, and to the Church of Constantinople, my warm and fraternal best wishes on the Feast of your holy Patron.  And I ask a favour of you: to bless me and the Church of Rome.”[10]

Francis proclaims that the heretical and schismatic church in Constantinople is the true Church of Jesus Christ in Constantinople. Antipope Francis asks “His Holiness”, the leader of the schismatic “Church”, to bless him and the “Catholic Church”.  Antipope Francis is a schismatic.

Francis’ November 22, 2014 address to the fourthNational Missionary Conference of the Church in Italy”:

“In the Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium, I spoke of a ‘Church which goes forth’. A missionary Church cannot help but ‘go forth’, without fear to meet, to discover the novel, to speak of the joy of the Gospel. To all, without distinction. Not to proselytize…”[11]

Here Francis is addressing a “missionary conference”. Francis says attempting to convert people is not a part of missionary activity. Real Catholics know that missionary activity is, by definition, the work of trying to convert non-Catholics to the Catholic faith. Francis also tells them to go forth and “discover the novel”.

Francis’ October 31, 2014 address to members of “the Catholic Fraternity of the Charismatic Renewal”:

“I would like now to reflect upon some themes which I consider important. The first is unity in diversity. Uniformity is not Catholic, it is not Christian. Rather, unity in diversity. Catholic unity is different but it is one: this is curious! The cause of diversity is also the cause of unity: the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit does two things: he creates unity in diversity. Unity does not imply uniformity; it does not necessarily mean doing everything together or thinking in the same way. Nor does it signify a loss of identity. Unity in diversity is actually the opposite: it involves the joyful recognition and acceptance of the various gifts which the Holy Spirit gives to each one and the placing of these gifts at the service of all members of the Church. It meansknowing how to listen, to accept differences, and having the freedom to think differently and express oneself with complete respect towards the other who is my brother or sister. Do not be afraid of differences!The Charismatic Renewal has reminded the Church of the necessity and importance of the prayer of praise. When we speak of the prayer of praise in the Church, Charismatics come to mindSpiritual ecumenism is praying and proclaiming together that Jesus is Lord, and coming together to help the poor in all their poverty. This must be done while never forgetting in our day that the blood of Jesus, poured out by many Christian martyrs in various parts of the world, calls us and compels us towards the goal of unity. For persecutors, we are not divided, we are not Lutherans, Orthodox, Evangelicals, Catholics…No! We are one in their eyes! For persecutors we are Christians! They are not interested in anything else. This is the ecumenism of blood that we experience today. Remember: seek the unity which is the work of the Holy Spirit and do not be afraid of diversity. The breathing of Christians draws in the new air of the Holy Spirit and then exhales it upon the world: it is the prayer of praise and missionary outreach. Share baptism in the Holy Spiritwith everyone in the Church. Spiritual ecumenism and the ecumenism of blood. The unity of the Body of Christ.”[12]

In this heretical rant, Francis teaches that “Catholics” must fully embrace those who hold heretical positions. He shouts, “accept differences!”. He promotes the demonic, non-Catholic “Charismatic Renewal” and their so-called “baptism in the Holy Spirit”. Francis blasphemes the Holy Spirit by saying that He is the author of various heretical and schismatic sects and “Churches”. Francis says there are many non-Catholic martyrs. That is a rejection of the Catholic dogma that there are only Catholic martyrs. At the Council of Florence, Pope Eugene IV infallibly proclaimed that non-Catholics who even shed their blood “for Christ” go to Hell.

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, “Cantate Domino,” 1441, ex cathedra:  “The Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes, and proclaims that none of those existing outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans, but also Jews, heretics and schismatics can become participants in eternal life, but they will depart ‘into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels’ [Matt. 25:41], unless before the end of life they have been added to the flock; and that the unity of this ecclesiastical body is so strong that only for those who abide in it are the sacraments of the Church of benefit for salvation, and do fasts, almsgiving, and other functions of piety and exercises of a Christian soldier produce eternal rewards.  No one, whatever almsgiving he has practiced, even if he has shed blood for the name of Christ, can be saved, unless he has persevered within the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church.”

Catholic dogma is exactly the opposite of what the heretic Antipope Francis teaches. Francis says more than once that we shouldn’t be concerned with those who reject various Catholic teachings. Francis teaches “do not be afraid of diversity”, for it is “the new air of the Holy Spirit”. Antipope Francis teaches that the unity of the Body of Christ is a unity between “Catholics” and those “Christians” who reject Catholic teachings. That is a clear profession that Protestants, etc. are in the Body of Christ – a total rejection of Catholic dogma.

Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos (#10), Jan. 6, 1928: “… the union of Christians can only be promoted by promoting the return to the one true Church of Christ of those who are separated from it…”

Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos (#9), Jan. 6, 1928: “Everyone knows that John himself, the Apostle of love, who seems to reveal in his Gospel the secrets of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and who never ceased to impress on the memories of his followers the new commandment ‘Love one another,’ altogether forbade any intercourse with those who professed a mutilated and corrupt version of Christ’s teaching: ‘If any man come to you and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into the house nor say to him: God speed you.’”

We have again reached the end of another examination of Antipope Francis’ heresies. Consider the magnitude of Francis’ rejection of the Papacy in these heresies. He openly and repeatedly teaches that a pope is not to be recognized as the one with supreme authority in the Church. He teaches that the “Orthodox” and Protestants are not to accept the jurisdictional authority of St. Peter and his successors. That is an open rejection of the dogma of the Papacy. One could not ask for a more explicit example of heresy. To say that he is not a heretic, as the false traditionalists do, is an incredible blasphemy.

Yet, it has become obvious to me that most “Catholics” who have seen Francis’ heresies in word and deed, and still regard him as a Catholic, will never change their position, even if he taught heresy 50,000 times. That’s because they are faithless. Externals are more important to them than the teaching of Jesus Christ and His Church. They simply reject the Church’s teaching that only those who profess the true faith can be considered in the Church.

Pope Pius XII, Mystici Corporis Christi (#22). “Actually only those are to be included as members of the Church who have been baptized and profess the true faith.”[13]

The fact that Francis clearly rejects defined Catholic teaching on the Papacy – by teaching that the “Orthodox” don’t need to submit to the Papacy – is all one should need to see. It proves (without any doubt) that Francis is a heretic and that he does not profess the true faith. He does not teach that the faith of Rome is to be held.  Therefore, he cannot be considered a Catholic in the Church.

Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum (# 13), June 29, 1896: “You are not to be looked upon as holding the true Catholic faith if you do not teach that the faith of Rome is to be held.”

Pope Pius XII, Mystici Corporis Christi (# 23), June 29, 1943: “For not every offense, although it may be a grave evil, is such as by its very own nature to sever a man from the Body of the Church, as does schism or heresy or apostasy.”

It’s noteworthy that many of the false traditionalists, who obstinately reject the true position on this matter, are quite vocal in rejecting pro-abortion politicians as “not Catholic” and as “heretics”. Yet, Francis and the other Vatican II antipopes have taught heresies hundreds of times on matters that are every bit as dogmatic as the Church’s condemnation of abortion. The Church has also always taught that those who are public heretics are outside the Church and must be regarded as such. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be one faith in the Church.

Pope Boniface VIII, Unam Sanctam, Nov. 18, 1302: “One is my dove, my perfect one… which represents the one mystical body… And in this, ‘one Lord, one faith, one baptism’ (Eph. 4:5).”

In fact, the dogmas Francis denies have been defined more frequently than the Church’s opposition to abortion. But that fact doesn’t make any difference to those false traditionalists. Almost every month or week they will come out and complain or laugh about Francis’ latest blasphemy. They will endlessly whine about how Francis’ outrageous teaching is contrary to what true popes have taught throughout history. They will mock his false teaching and his false faith, failing to realize that they are only mocking themselves; for by recognizing him as a Catholic and the leader of the faithful, they simultaneously profess that his “faith” (and thus what they mock) is true. Nevertheless, since they are evil, they will continue to profess that the wolf (Francis) has authority over the sheep, and that he is not a heretic.

Their position is wicked, heretical, theologically ridiculous, and spiritually bankrupt. They are on the road to Hell, and they lead others to Hell. Those who hold this position (promoting heretics as Catholics) and those who follow such blind guides, who don’t serve Jesus Christ or believe in His faith, will pay the ultimate price in the eternal lake of fire.

Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum, June 29, 1896: “… can it be lawful for anyone to reject any of those truths without thereby sending himself headlong into open heresy? without thereby separating himself from the Church and in one sweeping act repudiating the entirety of Christian doctrine?…”

Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum, June 29, 1896: “… it is absurd to imagine that he who is outside the Church can command in the Church.”

Francis endorses Islam

Francis’ November 30, 2014 responses to questions from journalists on the return flight from Turkey:

Yasemin Taskin, Turkish television: “President Erdogan spoke about ‘Islamophobia’Taking interreligious dialog into consideration as well, what more can be done? That is, is interreligious dialog enough? Can more be done?”

Francis: “On Islamophobia: It’s true that there has been a reaction to these acts of terrorism, not just in this region but in Africa as well: ‘If this is Islam it makes me angry!’. So many Muslims feel offended, they say: ‘But that is not what we are. The Quran is a prophetic book of peace. This is not Islam’. I can understand this. And I sincerely believe that we cannot say all Muslims are terrorists, just as we cannot say that all Christians are fundamentalists– we also have fundamentalists among us, all religions have these small groups. I told the President [Erdogan] that it would be good to issue a clear condemnation against these kinds of groups. All religious leaders, scholars, clerics, intellectuals and politicians should do this.This way they hear it from their leaders’ mouth. There needs to be international condemnation from Muslims across the world.  It must be said, ‘no, this is not what the Quran is about!’… We need to take this qualitative leap, we need to bring about a dialog between religious figures of different faiths. This is a beautiful thing: men and women who meet other men and women and share experiences. We are not just talking about theology but religious experience. And this would be a beautiful step forward, beautiful. I really enjoyed that meeting. It was excellent.”[1]

Antipope Francis repeats what many Muslims say: “The Quran is a prophetic book of peace”. Francis doesn’t say he disagrees with that conclusion, but “can understand” those who would make that statement. Francis once again publicly condemns Catholic “fundamentalism”. He wants others to condemn it as well. Francis calls for a “dialog between religious figures of different faiths”, and says “we are not just talking about theology but religious experience”. This is modernism and apostasy.

Esma Cakir, Information Agency of Turkey: “What was the significance of that moment of such intense prayer that you had in the Mosque? Was it, for you, a way of turning to God? Is there something in particular that you would like to share with us?”

Francis: “I went to Turkey as a pilgrim, not a tourist. And I went especially for today’s feast. I went precisely in order to celebrate it with Patriarch Bartholomew. It was for a religious reason. But then, when I entered the Mosque, I couldn’t say: now, I’m a tourist! No,it was completely religious. And I saw that wonder! The Mufti explained things very well to me, with such meekness, and using the QuranHe explained it all to meAt that moment I felt the need to pray. So I asked him: ‘Shall we pray a little?’. To which he responded: ‘Yes, yes’. I prayed for Turkey, for peace, for the Mufti, for everyone and for myself, as I need it … I prayed, sincerely…”[2]

Antipope Francis answers a question about his visit to the mosque by saying that it was a religious experience. He explains that he was taught by the Islamic mufti from the Quran. Francis clearly admits that his reason for going into the mosque “was completely religious”. Francis describes being taught by the Muslim leader saying, “he explained it all to me”. At this point, Francis said he was so moved while in the mosque that he asked to pray with the Islamic leader. Francis says, “I felt the need to pray”. St Thomas Aquinas taught that if anyone were to worship at the tomb of Mohammed he would be deemed an apostate. Antipope Francis’ recent action without any doubt proves that he’s an apostate.

Francis’ November 28, 2014 address to the “President of Religious Affairsin Turkey and Muslim and Christian political and religious leaders”:

“I thank the President of this distinguished office for his cordial invitation which affords me the opportunity to share these moments with political and religious leaders, both Muslim and Christian. It is a tradition that Popes, when they visit different countries as part of their mission, meet also with the leaders and members of various religions. Without this openness to encounter and dialog, a Papal Visit would not fully correspond to its purposes… Good relations and dialog between religious leaders have, in fact, acquired great importance. They represent a clear message addressed to their respective communities which demonstrates that mutual respect and friendship are possible… Christians and Yazidis, have suffered and continue to suffer barbaric violence simply because of their ethnic and religious identity. They have been forcibly evicted from their homes, having to leave behind everything to save their lives and preserve their faith. This violence has also brought damage to sacred buildings, monuments, religious symbols and cultural patrimony… In a unique way, religious leaders can offer a vital contribution by expressing the values of their respective traditions.We, Muslims and Christians, are the bearers of spiritual treasures of inestimable worth. Among these we recognize some shared elements, though lived according to the traditions of each, such as the adoration of the All-Merciful God, reference to the Patriarch Abraham, prayer, almsgiving, fasting… elements which, when lived sincerely, can transform life and provide a sure foundation for dignity and fraternity. Recognizing and developing our common spiritual heritage – through interreligious dialog – helps us to promote and to uphold moral values, peace and freedom in society… Following my meeting with the President, I am also hopeful that this interreligious dialog will take on creative new forms. Mr President, I renew my gratitude to you and your colleagues for this meeting, which fills my heart with joy. I am grateful also to each one of you, for your presence and for your prayers which, in your kindness, you offer for me and my ministry.”[3]

In this speech Francis decries the destruction of “sacred” buildings, monuments, and religious symbols belonging to false religions like Yazidism. The Yazidis are “a Kurdish ethno-religious community whose syncretic but ancient religion Yazidism is linked to Zoroastrianism and ancient Mesopotamian religions”.[4] Francis proclaims that “Muslims and Christians, are the bearers of spiritual treasures of inestimable worth such as the adoration of the All-Merciful God”. Muslims deny that Jesus is God, yet Antipope Francis says they adore God. This is apostasy from the Catholic faith. Francis says Islamic “prayer, almsgiving, fasting” are elements that “can transform life”. Antipope Francis goes on to say that we have a “common spiritual heritage” with Muslims and that Muslims “uphold moral values”. Muslims allow a man to have up to four “wives”, among other things. That’s upholding moral values, according to the apostate Francis. At the end of his heretical speech, Francis says that he is “grateful” for the “prayers” of Muslim “religious leaders”. This is more pure evil promoted by Antipope Francis.

Francis’ November 21, 2014 “Apostolic Letter to menand women religious for the Year of Consecrated Life”:

“In this letter I do not hesitate to address a word to the consecrated men and women and to the members of fraternities and communities who belong to Churches of traditions other than the Catholic tradition. Monasticism is part of the heritage of the undivided Church, and is still very much alive in both the Orthodox Churches and the Catholic Church. The monastic tradition, and other later experiences from the time when the Church in the West was still united, have inspired analogous initiatives in the Ecclesial Communities of the reformed tradition. These have continued to give birth to further expressions of fraternal community and service… Nor can we forget that the phenomenon of monasticism and of other expressions of religious fraternity is present in all the great religions. There are instances, some long-standing, of inter-monastic dialog involving the Catholic Church and certain of the great religious traditions. I trust that the Year of Consecrated Life will be an opportunity to review the progress made, to make consecrated persons aware of this dialog, and to consider what further steps can be taken towardsgreater mutual understanding andgreater cooperation in the many common areas of service…”[5]

This is an “Apostolic Letter” from Antipope Francis – “the head of the Catholic Church”. It purports to be a letter on “consecrated life”. In the letter, the apostate Francis teaches that we can’t forget the “monasticism” present “in all the great religions”. He is referring to things such as the abomination of Buddhist “monks”. Francis promotes “inter-monastic dialog” and “greater cooperation” with the “consecrated” of non-Christian “religions”. He once again fully endorses Protestantism and even promotes Protestant and “reformed” monastic-like movements. He is a total apostate!

Francis’ November 25, 2014 address to the European Parliament and to the Council of Europe:

“Practically all of Europe is present in this hall, with its peoples, its languages, its cultural and religious expressions, all of which constitute the richness of this continent… In light of all this, I am gratified by the desire of the Council of Europe to invest in intercultural dialog, including its religious dimension, through the Exchange on the Religious Dimension of Intercultural Dialog. Here is a valuable opportunity for open, respectful and enriching exchangebetween persons and groups of different origins and ethnic, linguistic and religious traditions, in a spirit of understanding and mutual respect.”[6]

Francis says that the different false religions present in Europe make up the “richness” of that continent.

Some of Antipope Francis’ Heresies from October to November 2014

Francis’ October 2, 2014 address to Mar Dinkha IV – schismatic “Patriarch of the Assyrian Church of the East”:

Your Holiness,
Beloved Brothers in Christ,

It is a moment of grace and true joy for me to be able to welcome you here… Through you, I express my greeting in the Lord to the Bishops, the clergy and the faithful of the Assyrian Church of the East… thus may we feel impelled by the Spirit to exchange, from now on, the spiritual treasures of our ecclesial Traditions, in order to live as true brothers, sharing the gifts that the Lord does not cease to bestow on our Churches, as a sign of his goodness and mercy.

Your Holiness, I thank you for your visit and I invoke upon you, your clergy and the faithful entrusted to your pastoral care, through the intercession of the All Holy Mother of God, an abundance of divine blessings.”[1]

Antipope Francis calls followers of the schismatic sect “the faithful”, and he believes that God bestows gifts upon the schismatic church. Francis says that God has “entrusted” these souls to the “pastoral care” of the schismatic leader.

Francis’ October 8, 2014 general audience:

Divisions among Christians, while they wound the Church, wound Christ; and divided, we cause a wound to Christ…”[2]

Contrary to what Francis teaches, there are no divisions in faith among Christians. That’s because all Christians are united in one faith in the true Catholic Church. The true Catholic Church cannot be divided.

Pope Leo XIII: “The Church in respect of its unity belongs to the category of things indivisible by nature, though heretics try to divide it into many parts.” (Satis Cognitum #4, June 29,1896)

Francis’ October 24, 2014 address to members of the “Orientale Lumen Foundation” – He talked about his upcoming trip to Turkey:

“In the coming days, your pilgrimage will stop at the Phanar, where you will meet the Ecumenical Patriarch, His Holiness BartholomewI. I ask you to convey to him my warm and brotherly greetings together with the assurance of my affection and my esteem. As you know, I too am preparing to visit the Ecumenical Patriarch in November on the occasion of the Feast of the Apostle St Andrew, in response to the kind invitation of His Holiness Bartholomew. The visit of the Bishop of Rome to the Ecumenical Patriarch and the new meeting between Patriarch Bartholomew and myself will be a sign of the deep bond that unites the Sees of Rome and of Constantinople…”[3]

Francis expresses his esteem for the schismatic “Orthodox” leader, “His Holiness” Bartholomew. He declares the schismatic to be the leader of the “See” of Constantinople. Antipope Francis says there is a “deep bond” that “unites” the “Catholic Church” to the schismatic church in Constantinople. The true Catholic Church has no bond or communion with schismatics.

Pope St. Leo the Great, Sermon 129: “Wherefore, since outside the Catholic Church there is nothing perfect, nothing undefiled… we are in no way likened with those who are divided from the unity of the Body of Christ;we are joined in no communion.”

Francis’ October 27, 2014 address on inaugurating a bronze bust depicting Benedict XVI. The ceremony took place on the occasion of the “Pontifical Academy of Science’s Plenary Session”, dedicated “to the theme of evolution in the concept of nature”:

“You are addressing the highly complex topic of the evolution of the concept of nature… When we read in Genesis the account of Creation, we risk imagining that Godwas a magician, with such a magic wand as to be able to do everything. However, it was not like that… The Big-Bang, that is placed today at the origin of the world, does not contradict the divine intervention but exacts it. The evolution in nature is not opposed to the notion of Creation, because evolution presupposes the creation of beings that evolve.”[4]

Antipope Francis promotes the unscientific idea of evolution. Francis says the biblical creation account, according to which God was “able to do everything” without evolution, is wrong. Francis once again mentions a “magic wand”.

Francis’ October 30, 2014 address to delegation of the “Old Catholic” Bishops’ Conference of “the Union of Utrecht”:

Your Grace,Your Excellencies,

I am pleased to welcome you, the members of the Old Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Union of Utrecht, as your visit offers us a valuable opportunity to reflect on our shared ecumenical journey… In the meantime, in the heart of Europe, which is so confused about its own identity and vocation, there are many areas in which Catholics and Old Catholics can collaborate in meeting the profound spiritual crisis affecting individuals and societies. There is a thirst for God. There is a profound desire to recover a sense of purpose in life. There is an urgent need for a convincing witness to the truth and values of the Gospel. In this we can support and encourage one another, especially at the level of parishes and local communities.”[5]

Here Francis addresses a delegation of the Union of Utrecht of “Old Catholic” churches. This particular Old Catholic group is in “full communion with the Anglican Communion and a member of the World Council of Churches”. This heretical and schismatic group has women “priests” and rejects papal infallibility. They have held “full communion” with the so-called Church of England since 1932.[6] Antipope Francis believes that “the Catholic Church” can “collaborate” with these sect members in the current “spiritual crisis”. Francis declares them to be a “witness to the truth”. He also says that the “Catholic Church” can be supported and encouraged by this heretical and schismatic non-Catholic sect.

Francis’ October 31, 2014 address to members of “the Catholic Fraternity of the Charismatic Renewal”:

“I would like now to reflect upon some themes which I consider important. The first is unity in diversity. Uniformity is not Catholic, it is not Christian. Rather, unity in diversity. Catholic unity is different but it is one: this is curious! The cause of diversity is also the cause of unity: the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit does two things: he creates unity in diversity. Unity does not imply uniformity; it does not necessarily mean doing everything together or thinking in the same way. Nor does it signify a loss of identity. Unity in diversity is actually the opposite: it involves the joyful recognition and acceptance of the various gifts which the Holy Spirit gives to each one and the placing of these gifts at the service of all members of the Church. It meansknowing how to listen, to accept differences, and having the freedom to think differently and express oneself with complete respect towards the other who is my brother or sister. Do not be afraid of differences!The Charismatic Renewal has reminded the Church of the necessity and importance of the prayer of praise. When we speak of the prayer of praise in the Church, Charismatics come to mindSpiritual ecumenism is praying and proclaiming together that Jesus is Lord, and coming together to help the poor in all their poverty. This must be done while never forgetting in our day that the blood of Jesus, poured out by many Christian martyrs in various parts of the world, calls us and compels us towards the goal of unity. For persecutors, we are not divided, we are not Lutherans, Orthodox, Evangelicals, Catholics…No! We are one in their eyes! For persecutors we are Christians! They are not interested in anything else. This is the ecumenism of blood that we experience today. Remember: seek the unity which is the work of the Holy Spirit and do not be afraid of diversity. The breathing of Christians draws in the new air of the Holy Spirit and then exhales it upon the world: it is the prayer of praise and missionary outreach. Share baptism in the Holy Spiritwith everyone in the Church. Spiritual ecumenism and the ecumenism of blood. The unity of the Body of Christ.”[7]

In this heretical rant, Francis teaches that “Catholics” must fully embrace those who hold heretical positions. He shouts, “accept differences!”. He promotes the demonic, non-Catholic “Charismatic Renewal” and their so-called “baptism in the Holy Spirit”. Francis blasphemes the Holy Spirit by saying that He is the author of various heretical and schismatic sects and “Churches”. Francis says there are many non-Catholic martyrs. That is a rejection of the Catholic dogma that there are only Catholic martyrs. At the Council of Florence, Pope Eugene IV infallibly proclaimed that non-Catholics who even shed their blood “for Christ” go to Hell.

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, “Cantate Domino,” 1441, ex cathedra:  “The Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes, and proclaims that none of those existing outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans, but also Jews, heretics and schismatics can become participants in eternal life, but they will depart ‘into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels’ [Matt. 25:41], unless before the end of life they have been added to the flock; and that the unity of this ecclesiastical body is so strong that only for those who abide in it are the sacraments of the Church of benefit for salvation, and do fasts, almsgiving, and other functions of piety and exercises of a Christian soldier produce eternal rewards.  No one, whatever almsgiving he has practiced, even if he has shed blood for the name of Christ, can be saved, unless he has persevered within the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church.”

Catholic dogma is exactly the opposite of what the heretic Antipope Francis teaches. Francis says more than once that we shouldn’t be concerned with those who reject various Catholic teachings. Francis teaches “do not be afraid of diversity”, for it is “the new air of the Holy Spirit”. Antipope Francis teaches that the unity of the Body of Christ is a unity between “Catholics” and those “Christians” who reject Catholic teachings. That is a clear profession that Protestants, etc. are in the Body of Christ – a total rejection of Catholic dogma.

Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos (#10), Jan. 6, 1928: “… the union of Christians can only be promoted by promoting the return to the one true Church of Christ of those who are separated from it…”

Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos (#9), Jan. 6, 1928: “Everyone knows that John himself, the Apostle of love, who seems to reveal in his Gospel the secrets of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and who never ceased to impress on the memories of his followers the new commandment ‘Love one another,’ altogether forbade any intercourse with those who professed a mutilated and corrupt version of Christ’s teaching: ‘If any man come to you and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into the house nor say to him: God speed you.’”

Francis’ November 1, 2014 “Angelus address”:

“Today we praise God for the countless host of saints from all ages: simple and ordinary men and women, who were at times ‘last’ for the world, but ‘first’ for God. At the same time we remember our departed loved ones by visiting the cemeteries: it is a source of great consolation to think that they are in the company of the Virgin Mary, the apostles, the martyrs and all the saints of Heaven!”[8]

Francis here implies that all departed souls (including everyone’s loved ones) are in Heaven. No one is lost or even in Purgatory, according to him.

Francis’ November 7, 2014 address to “the Italian conference of major religious superiors”:

“I would say this is the first thing: to help the Church to grow by way of attraction. Without worrying about proselytizing…”[9]

Francis tells “major religious superiors” that they should not worry about trying to convert others to the Catholic faith (proselytizing). That is apostasy.

Francis’ November 10, 2014 address to “bishops of Senegal, Mauritania, Cape Verde and Guinea-Bissau”:

“… develop a realistic and constructive dialog with Muslims, a dialog ever more necessary to be able to live with them in peaceful coexistence. Indeed, ‘if all of us who believe in God desire to promote reconciliation, justice and peace, we must work together to banish every form of discrimination, intolerance and religious fundamentalism’ (Africae Munus, n. 94).”[10]

Francis teaches that there should be no intolerance for the false teachings of Islam. He also condemns all “religious fundamentalism”.

Francis’ November 20, 2014 address at the offices of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN:

“If we believe in the principle of the unity of the human family, based on the common paternity of God the Creator, and in the fraternity of human beings, no form of political or economic pressure that exploits the availability of foodstuffs can be considered acceptable. Political and economic pressure: here I think of our sister and mother, Earth, our planet, and of whether we are free of political and economic pressure and able to care for her, to avoid her destruction. We have two conferences ahead of us, in Peru and France, which pose the challenge to us of caring for our planet. I remember a phrase that I heard from an elderly man many years ago: God always forgives … our misdemeanours, our abuse, God always forgives; men forgive at times; but the Earth never forgives. We must care for our sister the Earth, our Mother Earth, so that she does not respond with destruction.”[11]

First of all, God doesn’t always forgive. For example, God doesn’t forgive mortal sin unless a true Catholic, with the intention of not committing the sin again, properly confesses the mortal sin to a validly ordained priest. If that doesn’t happen, the person’s mortal sin is not forgiven. Francis says “our Mother” Earth “never forgives”. Antipope Francis says that “Mother Earth” may “respond with destruction” if we are not careful in our dealings with “her”. Francis is teaching that we need to be more worried about “offending” the Earth (as if that is possible) than offending Almighty God. Francis has promoted this kind of pantheistic nonsense in the past. It is completely heretical.

Francis’ November 20, 2014 letter to “the Plenary of the Pontifical Council for Christian Unity”:

“All this has enabled closer contact with other Churches and Ecclesial Communities and new forms of cooperation to be developed. Ecumenical translations of the Sacred Scriptures have been very important in this regard. Christians of different Churches and Ecclesial Communities are working together… continue to trust in God who plants in the hearts of Christians the seeds of love and of unity, in order to confront with renewed momentum today’s ecumenical challenges: to cultivate spiritual ecumenism, to turn to advantage the ecumenism of blood, to walk together on the path of the Gospel.  Spiritual ecumenism, which reaches a high point in the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, lives and develops through countless channels… spread the oxygen of the authentic ecumenical spirit through the body of the Church; a network of acts, which see us united and working together in so many works of charity; and it is also a sharing of prayer, of meditation and other texts which circulate on the web and can contribute to raising awareness, respect and mutual esteem.With regard to the ecumenism of blood, Unitatis Redintegratio itself invited that we esteem it by acknowledging the God-given capacity of our brothers and sisters of other Churches and Christian communities to bear witness to Christ even to the supreme sacrifice (cf. n. 4). There has been no shortage of such witnesses in these 50 years and they continue even in our day. It is up to us to welcome them with faith and allow their strength to impel us to convert to an ever fuller brotherhood. Those who persecute Christ in his faithful make no differentiation between confessions: they persecute them simply because they are Christians.”[12]

Francis once again boldly proclaims the heresies of false ecumenism, non-Catholic martyrs, and that non-Catholic “Christians” are Christ’s faithful.

Francis’ November 21, 2014 “Apostolic Letter to men and women religious for the Year of Consecrated Life”:

“In this letter I do not hesitate to address a word to the consecrated men and women and to the members of fraternities and communities who belong to Churches of traditions other than the Catholic tradition. Monasticism is part of the heritage of the undivided Church, and is still very much alive in both the Orthodox Churches and the Catholic Church. The monastic tradition, and other later experiences from the time when the Church in the West was still united, have inspired analogous initiatives in the Ecclesial Communities of the reformed tradition. These have continued to give birth to further expressions of fraternal community and service… Nor can we forget that the phenomenon of monasticism and of other expressions of religious fraternity is present in all the great religions. There are instances, some long-standing, of inter-monastic dialog involving the Catholic Church and certain of the great religious traditions. I trust that the Year of Consecrated Life will be an opportunity to review the progress made, to make consecrated persons aware of this dialog, and to consider what further steps can be taken towardsgreater mutual understanding andgreater cooperation in the many common areas of service…”[13]

This is an “Apostolic Letter” from Antipope Francis – “the head of the Catholic Church”. It purports to be a letter on “consecrated life”. In the letter, the apostate Francis teaches that we can’t forget the “monasticism” present “in all the great religions”. He is referring to things such as the abomination of Buddhist “monks”. Francis promotes “inter-monastic dialog” and “greater cooperation” with the “consecrated” of non-Christian “religions”. He once again fully endorses Protestantism and even promotes Protestant and “reformed” monastic-like movements. He is a total apostate!

Francis’ November 22, 2014 address to the fourth “National Missionary Conference of the Church in Italy”:

“In the Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium, I spoke of a ‘Church which goes forth’. A missionary Church cannot help but ‘go forth’, without fear to meet, to discover the novel, to speak of the joy of the Gospel. To all, without distinction. Not to proselytize…”[14]

Here Francis is addressing a “missionary conference”. Francis says attempting to convert people is not a part of missionary activity. Real Catholics know that missionary activity is, by definition, the work of trying to convert non-Catholics to the Catholic faith. Francis also tells them to go forth and “discover the novel”.

Francis’ November 25, 2014 address to the European Parliament and to the Council of Europe:

“Practically all of Europe is present in this hall, with its peoples, its languages, its cultural and religious expressions, all of which constitute the richness of this continent… In light of all this, I am gratified by the desire of the Council of Europe to invest in intercultural dialog, including its religious dimension, through the Exchange on the Religious Dimension of Intercultural Dialog. Here is a valuable opportunity for open, respectful and enriching exchangebetween persons and groups of different origins and ethnic, linguistic and religious traditions, in a spirit of understanding and mutual respect.” [15]

Francis says that the different false religions present in Europe make up the “richness” of that continent.

Francis’ November 26, 2014 “catechesis” at his general audience:

“This is the Church’s destination: it is, as the Bible says, the ‘new Jerusalem’, ‘Paradise’. More than a place, it is a ‘state’ of soul in which our deepest hopes are fulfilled in superabundance and our being, as creatures and as children of God, reach their full maturity. We will finally be clothed in the joy, peace and love of God, completely, without any limit, and we will come face to face with Him! (cf. 1 Cor 13:12). It is beautiful to think of this, to think of Heaven. We will all be there together. It is beautiful, it gives strength to the soul.”[16]

Francis says Heaven is a “state” of soul in which “all” will be there together.  This seems to be very similar to what the apostate Antipope John Paul II taught on this subject.

Francis’ November 27, 2014 address to “pastors at the International Pastoral Congress”:

“In urban pastoral care, quality will come from the capacity of the Church and of every Christian to bear witness. When Pope Benedict said that the Church does not grow through proselytism but through attraction, he was speaking about this.”[17]

Here Francis tells us that the Vatican II sect’s idea of bearing witness to the faith means not trying to convert non-Catholics.  Francis once again quotes his apostate pal, Antipope Benedict XVI.

Francis’ November 28, 2014 address to Turkish political authorities:

Freedom of religion and freedom of expression, when truly guaranteed to each person, will help friendship to flourish and thus become an eloquent sign of peace… Mr President, interreligious and intercultural dialog can make an important contribution to attaining this lofty and urgent goal, so that there will be an end to all forms of fundamentalism and terrorism which gravely demean the dignity of every man and woman and exploit religion. Fanaticism and fundamentalism, as well as irrational fears which foster misunderstanding and discrimination, need to be countered by the solidarity of all believers. This solidarity must rest on the following pillars: respect for human life and for religious freedom, that is the freedom to worship and to live according to the moral teachings of one’s religion…”[18]

Here Antipope Francis condemns Catholic “fundamentalism”. Francis calls Muslims “believers”. Francis promotes the condemned heresies of freedom of religion, expression, worship, and living “according to the moral teachings of one’s [false] religion”.

Francis’ November 28, 2014 address to the “President of Religious Affairs in Turkey and Muslim and Christian political and religious leaders”:

“I thank the President of this distinguished office for his cordial invitation which affords me the opportunity to share these moments with political and religious leaders, both Muslim and Christian. It is a tradition that Popes, when they visit different countries as part of their mission, meet also with the leaders and members of various religions. Without this openness to encounter and dialog, a Papal Visit would not fully correspond to its purposes… Good relations and dialog between religious leaders have, in fact, acquired great importance. They represent a clear message addressed to their respective communities which demonstrates that mutual respect and friendship are possible… Christians and Yazidis, have suffered and continue to suffer barbaric violence simply because of their ethnic and religious identity. They have been forcibly evicted from their homes, having to leave behind everything to save their lives and preserve their faith. This violence has also brought damage to sacred buildings, monuments, religious symbols and cultural patrimony… In a unique way, religious leaders can offer a vital contribution by expressing the values of their respective traditions.We, Muslims and Christians, are the bearers of spiritual treasures of inestimable worth. Among these we recognize some shared elements, though lived according to the traditions of each, such as the adoration of the All-Merciful God, reference to the Patriarch Abraham, prayer, almsgiving, fasting… elements which, when lived sincerely, can transform life and provide a sure foundation for dignity and fraternity. Recognizing and developing our common spiritual heritage – through interreligious dialog – helps us to promote and to uphold moral values, peace and freedom in society… Following my meeting with the President, I am also hopeful that this interreligious dialog will take on creative new forms. Mr President, I renew my gratitude to you and your colleagues for this meeting, which fills my heart with joy. I am grateful also to each one of you, for your presence and for your prayers which, in your kindness, you offer for me and my ministry.”[19]

In this speech Francis decries the destruction of “sacred” buildings, monuments, and religious symbols belonging to false religions like Yazidism. The Yazidis are “a Kurdish ethno-religious community whose syncretic but ancient religion Yazidism is linked to Zoroastrianism and ancient Mesopotamian religions”.[20] Francis proclaims that “Muslims and Christians, are the bearers of spiritual treasures of inestimable worth such as the adoration of the All-Merciful God”. Muslims deny that Jesus is God, yet Antipope Francis says they adore God. This is apostasy from the Catholic faith. Francis says Islamic “prayer, almsgiving, fasting” are elements that “can transform life”. Antipope Francis goes on to say that we have a “common spiritual heritage” with Muslims and that Muslims “uphold moral values”. Muslims allow a man to have up to four “wives”, among other things. That’s upholding moral values, according to the apostate Francis. At the end of his heretical speech, Francis says that he is “grateful” for the “prayers” of Muslim “religious leaders”. This is more pure evil promoted by Antipope Francis.

Francis’ November 29, 2014 address during “Ecumenical Prayer Service” with schismatic “Orthodox leader” Bartholomew:

Your Holiness, my dear Brother,

Each evening brings a mixed feeling of gratitude for the day which is ending and of hope-filled trust as night falls. This evening my heart is full of gratitude to God who allows me to be here in prayer with Your Holiness and with this sister Church after an eventful day during my Apostolic Visit… With this joyful hope, filled with gratitude and eager expectation, I extend to Your Holiness and to all present, and to the Church of Constantinople, my warm and fraternal best wishes on the Feast of your holy Patron.  And I ask a favour of you: to bless me and the Church of Rome.”[21]

Francis proclaims that the heretical and schismatic church in Constantinople is the true Church of Jesus Christ in Constantinople. Antipope Francis asks “His Holiness”, the leader of the schismatic “Church”, to bless him and the “Catholic Church”. Antipope Francis is a schismatic.

Francis’ November 30, 2014 common declaration with “Patriarch” Bartholomew:

“We, Pope Francis and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I, express our profound gratitude to God for the gift of this new encounter enabling us, in the presence of the members of the Holy Synod, the clergy and the faithful of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, to celebrate together the feast of Saint Andrew, the first–called and brother of the Apostle Peter… To this end, we offer the assurance of our fervent prayer as Pastors of the Church, askingour faithful to join us in praying ‘that all may be one, that the world may believe’ (Jn 17:21)… we also recognize the importance of promoting a constructive dialog with Islam based on mutual respect and friendship. Inspired by common values and strengthened by genuine fraternal sentiments, Muslims and Christians are called to work together for the sake of justice, peace and respect for the dignity and rights of every person… Our thoughts turn to all the faithful of our Churches throughout the world, whom we greet…”[22]

In his public declaration of “faith”, Francis teaches that an openly schismatic leader is a “pastor of the Church”. Francis says we are “called to work together” with Muslims with “respect”, “inspired by common values”. Francis also calls schismatics “the faithful”, and asks to join in prayer with them.

Francis’ November 30, 2014 responses to questions from journalists on the return flight from Turkey:

Yasemin Taskin, Turkish television: “President Erdogan spoke about ‘Islamophobia’Taking interreligious dialog into consideration as well, what more can be done? That is, is interreligious dialog enough? Can more be done?”

Francis: “On Islamophobia: It’s true that there has been a reaction to these acts of terrorism, not just in this region but in Africa as well: ‘If this is Islam it makes me angry!’. So many Muslims feel offended, they say: ‘But that is not what we are. The Quran is a prophetic book of peace. This is not Islam’. I can understand this. And I sincerely believe that we cannot say all Muslims are terrorists, just as we cannot say that all Christians are fundamentalists– we also have fundamentalists among us, all religions have these small groups. I told the President [Erdogan] that it would be good to issue a clear condemnation against these kinds of groups. All religious leaders, scholars, clerics, intellectuals and politicians should do this.This way they hear it from their leaders’ mouth. There needs to be international condemnation from Muslims across the world.  It must be said, ‘no, this is not what the Quran is about!’… We need to take this qualitative leap, we need to bring about a dialog between religious figures of different faiths. This is a beautiful thing: men and women who meet other men and women and share experiences. We are not just talking about theology but religious experience. And this would be a beautiful step forward, beautiful. I really enjoyed that meeting. It was excellent.”[23]

Antipope Francis repeats what many Muslims say: “The Quran is a prophetic book of peace”. Francis doesn’t say he disagrees with that conclusion, but “can understand” those who would make that statement. Francis once again publicly condemns Catholic “fundamentalism”. He wants others to condemn it as well. Francis calls for a “dialog between religious figures of different faiths”, and says “we are not just talking about theology but religious experience”. This is modernism and apostasy.

Esma Cakir, Information Agency of Turkey: “What was the significance of that moment of such intense prayer that you had in the Mosque? Was it, for you, a way of turning to God? Is there something in particular that you would like to share with us?”

Francis: “I went to Turkey as a pilgrim, not a tourist. And I went especially for today’s feast. I went precisely in order to celebrate it with Patriarch Bartholomew. It was for a religious reason. But then, when I entered the Mosque, I couldn’t say: now, I’m a tourist! No,it was completely religious. And I saw that wonder! The Mufti explained things very well to me, with such meekness, and using the QuranHe explained it all to meAt that moment I felt the need to pray. So I asked him: ‘Shall we pray a little?’. To which he responded: ‘Yes, yes’. I prayed for Turkey, for peace, for the Mufti, for everyone and for myself, as I need it … I prayed, sincerely…”[24]

Antipope Francis answers a question about his visit to the mosque by saying that it was a religious experience. He explains that he was taught by the Islamic mufti from the Quran. Francis clearly admits that his reason for going into the mosque “was completely religious”. Francis describes being taught by the Muslim leader saying, “he explained it all to me”. At this point, Francis said he was so moved while in the mosque that he asked to pray with the Islamic leader. Francis says, “I felt the need to pray”. St Thomas Aquinas taught that if anyone were to worship at the tomb of Mohammed he would be deemed an apostate. Antipope Francis’ recent action without any doubt proves that he’s an apostate.

Alexey Bukalov of Russia: “Your Holiness, in thanking you for what you have done for the orthodox world, I would like to know, after this visit, and after this extraordinary meeting with the Patriarch of Constantinople, what is the outlook for relations with the Patriarchate of Moscow?”

Francis: “Last month, [Metropolitan] Hilarion attended the Synod as a delegate of Patriarch Kirill… Unity is a journey we have to take, but we need to do it together. This is spiritual ecumenism: praying together, working together. There are so many works of charity, so much work… Teaching together… Moving forward together. This is spiritual ecumenism. Then there is an ecumenism of blood: when they kill Christians, we have so many martyrsstarting with those in Uganda, canonized 50 years ago:half were Anglican, half Catholic, but the ones [who killed them] didn’t say: ‘You’re Catholic… you’re Anglican…’ No: ‘You are Christian’, and so their blood mixed. This is the ecumenism of blood. Our martyrs are crying out: ‘We are one! We already have unity, in spirit and in blood’. I don’t know if I told you the anecdote about Hamburg, which I heard from the parish priest of Hamburg. Did I tell you? When I was in Germany, I went to Hamburg to celebrate a baptism, and the parish priest was working on the cause for canonization of a priest who had been guillotined by the Nazis for having taught catechesis to the children. During his work on this cause, he discovered that in line behind the priest in question, there was a Lutheran pastor condemned to the guillotine for the same reason. The blood of these two mixed. And this parish priest went to the bishop and said: ‘I’m not taking this cause forward only for the priest: it’s either for both or for neither!’. This is ecumenism of blood, which helps us so much, which tells us so much…  I’ll say something that a few, perhaps, are not able to understand: the Eastern Catholic Churches have a right to exist, but uniatism is a dated word. We cannot speak in these terms today. We need to find another way. Now, ‘we land’ in Moscow. I told Patriarch Kirill, and he agreed, there is a willingness to meet. I told him: ‘I’ll go wherever you want, you call me and I’ll come’; and he too wants this… Hilarion suggested that the commission, for which he presides over the Russian Orthodox part, hold a study meeting on the question of Primacy. We have to continue in the footsteps of John Paul II: ‘Help me to find a form of Primacy that we can agree on’. This is what I can tell you.” [25]

Antipope Francis answers a question about the “Orthodox” (who reject the Catholic faith) by saying we need to pray, work, teach, and move forward together. Francis teaches that we “already have unity, in spirit and in blood” with non-Catholics.  The Catholic Church teaches that unity only exists in the true Catholic Church.  Francis once again teaches that there are non-Catholic martyrs, and that Anglicans “saints” were “canonized 50 years ago”.  This is totally heretical and condemned by the infallible teaching of true Catholic popes.  He even says that it was good for a “parish priest” to push for the canonization of a Lutheran “pastor”!

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, “Cantate Domino,” Session 11, 1441, ex cathedra: “… no one, whatever almsgiving he has practiced, even if he has shed blood for the name of Christ, can be saved, unless he has remained within the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church.”[26]

Pope Pelagius II, epistle (2) Dilectionis vestrae, 585: “Those who were not willing to be at agreement in the Church of God, cannot remain with God; although given over to flames and fires, they burn, or thrown to wild beasts, they lay down their lives, there will not be for them that crown of faith, but the punishment of faithlessness, not a glorious result (of religious virtue), but the ruin of despair. Such a one can be slain; he cannot be crowned.”[27]

Antipope Francis then teaches that “uniatism” is “a dated word”. Francis insists that “we cannot speak in these terms today”. Uniatism is “the union of an Eastern Rite church with the Roman Church in which the authority of the Papacy is accepted”.[28] So, the schismatic Francis is publicly declaring that having the schismatic churches accept the Papacy is outdated teaching. This is another public rejection of the Papacy by Francis. Francis then talks about how he told schismatic “Patriarch” Kirill: “I’ll go wherever you want, you call me and I’ll come”. “Pope” Francis will go wherever the schismatic leader wants him to go. Francis’ desire to please the schismatic leader is like an obedient dog responding to the call of his owner. This is Francis’ idea of how a “pope” runs “the Catholic Church” – conforming immediately to the desires of those who lead heretical and schismatic sects. Francis then says that he’s open to a change in Catholic teaching on the Papacy. Francis wants to find “a form of Primacy that we can agree on”. Francis is willing to further deny the Papacy to appease the schismatic “Orthodox” church. What an abomination.

Mimmo Muolo, of Avvenire: “I was struck by a phrase you used this morning during the Divine Liturgy: ‘I want to assure each one of you here that, to reach the desired goal of full unity, the Catholic Church does not intend to impose any conditions’. We would like to ask you to more fully explain this phrase, if possible, and whether it was in regard to the issue of Primacy, to which you referred earlier.”

Francis:  “That is not a condition: it’s an agreement, because they too want it; it’s an agreement to find a form that is more closely in line with that of the first centuriesthe Church has the shortcoming, the sinful habit of focusing too much on herself… And when the Church focuses too much on herself, divisions arise. And that’s what happened after the first millennium.  At the table today, Bartholomew and I were talking about the moment when a cardinal – I don’t remember which one – went to convey the Pope’s excommunication to the Patriarch: the Church was focusing on herself too much at that moment! She wasn’t looking to Jesus Christ. I believe that all these problems which arise between us, among Christians – at least speaking about our Catholic Church – come from focusing on oneself: we become self-referential.”[29]

Here Francis says again that he wants an agreement (on the meaning of the Papacy) with the “Orthodox” that will be “more closely in line with that of the first centuries”. This denies Vatican I, which taught that Catholic truth on the Papacy was held in all generations of Church history. Francis’ statement clearly means “a form” of the “Papacy” that is in line with the schismatic “Orthodox” teaching on this issue. People need to consider this carefully, for it’s an unbelievable denial of the papal office. Next, Antipope Francis says the Holy Catholic Church has sin – that it has a “sinful habit”. The “sin,” according to Francis, is the teaching of Vatican I on the requirement of all professing Christians to accept papal primacy. Francis is calling Vatican I “sin”.

Pope Hadrian I, Second Council of Nicaea, 787: “… Christ our God, when He took for His Bride His Holy Catholic Church, having no blemish or wrinkle, promised he would guard her and assured His holy disciples saying, I am with you every day until the consummation of the world.”[30]

Francis says the Catholic Church “focuses too much on herself” and should also focus on the other heretical and schismatic churches. Francis then condemns Pope Saint Leo IX’s excommunication of Michael Cerularius, the “Patriarch” of Constantinople. An interesting fact to consider about this event is that Pope Saint Leo IX refused to call Cerularius “Ecumenical Patriarch”.[31] Yet, Francis and the other Vatican II antipopes repeatedly referred to the schismatic leaders of the “Orthodox” church of Constantinople as “Ecumenical Patriarch”.

Francis’ November 30, 2014 address “at the conclusion of the Liturgy”:

Your Holiness, beloved brother Bartholomew,

When I was the Archbishop of Buenos Aires, I often took part in the celebration of the Divine Liturgy of the Orthodox communities there. Today, the Lord has given me the singular grace to be present in this Patriarchal Church of Saint George for the celebration of the Feast of the holy Apostle Andrew, the first-called, the brother of Saint Peter, and the Patron Saint of the Ecumenical Patriarchate. Meeting each other, seeing each other face to face, exchanging the embrace of peace, and praying for each other, are all essential aspects of our journey towards the restoration of full communion… I believe that it is important to reaffirm respect for this principle as an essential condition, accepted by both, for the restoration of full communion, which does not signify the submission of one to the other, or assimilation. Rather, it means welcoming all the gifts that God has given to each…”[32]

Francis tells the schismatic leader that, when he was the “Archbishop” of Buenos Aires, he “often took part in the celebration of the Divine Liturgy of the Orthodox communities there”. The Catholic Church has taught throughout history that to take part in a schismatic liturgy is a mortal sin.  For example, if anyone looked at almost any moral theology manual before Vatican II, they would see that it clearly states that active participation in a non-Catholic service is a mortal sin. Francis speaks proudly of the mortal sins he “often took part in” back in Buenos Aires. Francis then asks the schismatics to pray for him. Francis explains what “the restoration of full communion” means to the leaders of the Vatican II sect. It means that the schismatics don’t need to submit to the Papacy or to any teachings of the Catholic Church they don’t agree with. Francis says that we must welcome “all the gifts that God has given” to the schismatic “Orthodox” church.

We have again reached the end of another examination of Antipope Francis’ heresies. Consider the magnitude of Francis’ rejection of the Papacy in these heresies. He openly and repeatedly teaches that a pope is not to be recognized as the one with supreme authority in the Church. The dogma of the Papacy is not only that one man has supreme authority in the Church, but that everyone else in the Church must accept that authority. Antipope Francis teaches that the “Orthodox” and Protestants are not to accept the jurisdictional authority of St. Peter and his successors. That is an open rejection of the dogma of the Papacy. One could not ask for a more explicit example of heresy. To say that he is not a heretic, as the false traditionalists do, is an incredible blasphemy.

Yet, it has become obvious to me that most “Catholics” who have seen Francis’ heresies in word and deed, and still regard him as a Catholic, will never change their position, even if he taught heresy 50,000 times. That’s because they are faithless. Externals are more important to them than the teaching of Jesus Christ and His Church. They simply reject the Church’s teaching that only those who profess the true faith can be considered in the Church.

Pope Pius XII, Mystici Corporis Christi (#22). “Actually only those are to be included as members of the Church who have been baptized and profess the true faith.”[33]

The fact that Francis clearly rejects defined Catholic teaching on the Papacy – by teaching that the “Orthodox” don’t need to submit to the Papacy – is all one should need to see. It proves (without any doubt) that Francis is a heretic and that he does not profess the true faith. He does not teach that the faith of Rome is to be held.  Therefore, he cannot be considered a Catholic in the Church.

Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum (# 13), June 29, 1896: “You are not to be looked upon as holding the true Catholic faith if you do not teach that the faith of Rome is to be held.”

Pope Pius XII, Mystici Corporis Christi (# 23), June 29, 1943: “For not every offense, although it may be a grave evil, is such as by its very own nature to sever a man from the Body of the Church, as does schism or heresy or apostasy.”

It’s noteworthy that many of the false traditionalists, who obstinately reject the true position on this matter, are quite vocal in rejecting pro-abortion politicians as “not Catholic” and as “heretics”. Yet, Francis and the other Vatican II antipopes have taught heresies hundreds of times on matters that are every bit as dogmatic as the Church’s condemnation of abortion. The Church has also always taught that those who are public heretics are outside the Church and must be regarded as such.  Otherwise, there wouldn’t be one faith in the Church.

Pope Boniface VIII, Unam Sanctam, Nov. 18, 1302: “One is my dove, my perfect one… which represents the one mystical body… And in this, ‘one Lord, one faith, one baptism’ (Eph. 4:5).”

In fact, the dogmas Francis denies have been defined more frequently than the Church’s opposition to abortion. But that fact doesn’t make any difference to those false traditionalists. Almost every month or week they will come out and complain or laugh about Francis’ latest blasphemy. They will endlessly whine about how Francis’ outrageous teaching is contrary to what true popes have taught throughout history. They will mock his false teaching and his false faith, failing to realize that they are only mocking themselves; for by recognizing him as a Catholic and the leader of the faithful, they simultaneously profess that his “faith” (and thus what they mock) is true. Nevertheless, since they are evil, they will continue to profess that the wolf (Francis) has authority over the sheep, and that he is not a heretic.

Their position is wicked, heretical, theologically ridiculous, and spiritually bankrupt. They are on the road to Hell, and they lead others to Hell. Those who hold this position (promoting heretics as Catholics) and those who follow such blind guides, who don’t serve Jesus Christ or believe in His faith, will pay the ultimate price in the eternal lake of fire.

Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum, June 29, 1896: “… can it be lawful for anyone to reject any of those truths without thereby sending himself headlong into open heresy? without thereby separating himself from the Church and in one sweeping act repudiating the entirety of Christian doctrine?…”

Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum, June 29, 1896: “… it is absurd to imagine that he who is outside the Church can command in the Church.”

Antipope Francis repeatedly teaches that there are Muslim “Martyrs”

Francis’ September 21, 2014 “Homily” in “Mother Teresa Square” in Tirana, Albania:

“Recalling the decades of atrocious suffering and harsh persecutions against Catholics, Orthodox and Muslims, we can say that Albania was a land of martyrs: many bishops, priests, men and women religious, laity, and clerics and ministers of other religions paid for their fidelity with their lives.”[1]

Francis says that heretics, Muslims, and members of “other religions” who died embracing their false religions were “martyrs”.  That is to teach that Muslims are martyrs!

Francis’ September 21, 2014 In-Flight interview with journalists on trip from Albania back to Rome:

Question: “Your Holiness set out with a certain idea of Albanians, of Albania.  How Albanians have suffered but are also tolerant.  Did you find any other qualities in the Albanians which you met?  Are these qualities the right ones to make the eagle return to the nest?”

Francis: “I would say that I came to a better understanding of those things you mentioned, but I was also able to see at close hand the suffering which you Albanians endured.  The matter of tolerance… I would put it differently.  Albanians are not so much ‘tolerant’ – they are brothers and sisters.  They have the ability to be brothers and sisters: and that is something more important.  And this is evident in the way they live with one another, in cooperation between Muslims, Orthodox and CatholicsThey cooperate, but as brothers and sisters…”

Question: “Your Holiness, what were your emotions as you drove down the central boulevard of Tirana, under the pictures of the clergy who were martyred during the communist regime, in a country in which until 25 years ago atheism had been officially imposed?”

Francis: “When I saw those photographs (and there were not only Catholics, but Orthodox also Muslims as wellSo I would say that all three religious groups bore witness to God and now they are bearing witness to brotherhood.”[2]

Francis says that Muslims are “brothers and sisters” and that deceased “martyred” Muslims “bore witness to God”.

Francis’ September 21, 2014 address to the political and civil authorities of Albania:

“I am very happy to be here with you, in this noble land of Albania, a land of heroes who sacrificed their lives for the independence of the nation, and a land of martyrs, who witnessed to their faith in difficult times of persecution… Respect for human rights – for you, ‘respect’ is an essential word – among which religious freedom and freedom of expression stand out, is the preliminary condition for a country’s social and economic developmentThere is a rather beautiful characteristic of Albania, one which is given great care and attention, and which gives me great joy: I am referring to the peaceful coexistence and collaboration that exists among followers of different religions.  The climate of respect andmutual trust between Catholics, Orthodox and Muslims is a precious gift to the country… What the experience in Albania shows, rather, is that a peaceful and fruitful coexistence between persons and communities of believers of different religions is not only desirable, but possible and realistic.  The peaceful coexistence of different religious communities is, in fact, an inestimable benefit to peace and to harmonious human advancementThis is something of value which needs to be protected and nourished each day, by providing an education which respects differences and particular identities, so that dialog and cooperation for the good of all may be promoted and strengthened by mutual understanding and esteemIt is a gift which we need to implore God in prayer.  May Albania always continue to walk this path, offering to others countries an inspiring example.”[3]

Francis mentions that the predominantly Muslim country of Albania is “a land of martyrs, who witnessed to their faith”.  He again speaks about collaboration “among followers of different [false] religions”.  Francis asks for “respect” and “trust” for Muslims.  Francis says that we should “esteem” differences between religions.  He also encourages and endorses idolatry again when he tells the non-Christians (who worship a false god or gods) to “implore God in prayer”.   This is total apostasy from the Catholic faith.

Francis’ September 24, 2014 “catechesis” at General Audience – Hespoke about his journey to Albania:

“This visit was born of my desire to go to a country which, after long being oppressed by an atheist and inhuman regime, is living the experience of peaceful coexistence among the country’s different religious components.  I felt it was important to encourage it on this path, that it may continue with tenacity to evaluate all the implications for the benefit of the common good. For this reason the Journey had at its center an interreligious meeting where I was able to observe, with great satisfaction, that the peaceful and fruitful coexistence between persons and communities of believers of different religions is not only desirable, but possible and realistic.  They are putting it into practice!  This entails an authentic and fruitful dialogue which spurns relativism and takes the identity of each one into account. What the various religious expressions have in common is, indeed, life’s journey, the good will to do good to one’s neighbor, without denying or diminishing their respective identity…  Travelling along Tirana’s principal boulevard which leads from the airport to the great central square, I was able to glimpse the portraits of 40 priests assassinated during the communist dictatorship, for whom the Cause of Beatification has been opened. These are joined by hundredsof Christian and Muslim religious men and women assassinated, tortured, imprisoned and deported simply because they believed in God. There were dark years during which religious freedom was razed to the ground and belief in God was prohibited.  Thousands of churches and mosques were destroyed, transformed into warehouses and cinemas which propagated the Marxist ideology.  Religious books were burned and parents were prohibited from giving their children the religious names of their ancestors.  The memory of these tragic events is essential for the future of a people. The memory of martyrs who resisted in faith is a guarantee for the future of Albania; because their blood was not shed in vain, but is a seed which will bear the fruit of peace and fraternal cooperation.  Today, in fact, Albania is an example not only of the rebirth of the Church, but also of the peaceful coexistence of religions.  Thus, the martyrs are not the defeated, but the victors…”[4]

Francis (once again) promotes an apostate interreligious prayer meeting.  Francis then complains about the fact that “mosques were destroyed”.  Islam, the false religion Antipope Francis promotes, has been condemned by true Catholic popes as “abominable” and “diabolical”.

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Basel, 1434: “… there is hope that very many from the abominable sect of Mahomet will be converted to the Catholic faith.”[5]

Pope Callixtus III: “I vow to… exalt the true Faith, and to extirpate the diabolical sect of the reprobate and faithless Mahomet [Islam] in the East.”[6]

Antipope Francis then clearly teaches that Muslims are “martyrs”.  He says that “their blood was not shed in vain” and will “bear fruit”.  Francis says that these Muslim “martyrs” are “the victors” and “resisted in faith”.  This is total apostasy.  At the Council of Florence Pope Eugene IV declared that anyone who dies outside the Catholic Church will be lost forever.

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, “Cantate Domino”, 1441, ex cathedra: “The Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that all those who are outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans but also Jews or heretics and schismatics, cannot share in eternal life and will go into the everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels, unless they are joined to the Church before the end of their lives; that the unity of this ecclesiastical body is of such importance that only for those who abide in it do the Church’s sacraments contribute to salvation and do fasts, almsgiving and other works of piety and practices of the Christian militia produce eternal rewards; and that nobody can be saved, no matter how much he has given away in alms and even if he has shed blood in the name of Christ, unless he has persevered in the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church.”

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, The Athanasian Creed, Sess. 8, Nov. 22, 1439, ex cathedra: “Whoever wishes to be saved, needs above all to hold the Catholic faith; unless each one preserves this whole and inviolate, he will without a doubt perish in eternity.”[7]

Pope Pelagius II, epistle (2) Dilectionis vestrae, 585: “Those who were not willing to be at agreement in the Church of God, cannot remain with God; although given over to flames and fires, they burn, or thrown to wild beasts, they lay down their lives, there will not be for them that crown of faith, but the punishment of faithlessness, not a glorious result (of religious virtue), but the ruin of despair. Such a one can be slain; he cannot be crowned.”[8]

Pope Pius IV, Council of Trent, “Iniunctum nobis”, Nov. 13, 1565, ex cathedra: “This true Catholic faith, outside of which no one can be saved… I now profess and truly hold…” (Denz. 1000)

Antipope Francis’ Heresies from August to September 2014

Francis’ August 17, 2014 address in South Korea to the “Bishops” of Asia:

“And so, with my identity and my empathy, my openness, I walk with the other.  I don’t try to make him come over to me, I don’t proselytizePopeBenedict told us clearly: ‘The Church does not grow by proselytizing, but by attracting’.”[1]

Francis condemns proselytizing.  He once again quotes his apostate buddy Benedict XVI who taught the same horrible heresy.

Francis’ August 17, 2014 Homily in South Korea:

“You have gathered here in Korea from all parts of Asia.  Each of you has a unique place and context where you are called to reflect God’s love.  The Asian continent, imbued with rich philosophical and religious traditions…”[2]

The presence of various false religions on a continent makes it “rich” according to Antipope Francis.

Francis’ August 18, 2014 speech to leaders of different “religions”:

“I thank you for the kindness and affection which you have shown by coming here to meet me.  Life is a journey, a long journey, but a journey which we cannot make by ourselves.  We need to walk together with our brothers and sisters in the presence of God.  So I thank you for this gesture of walking together in the presence of God: that is what God asked of Abraham.  We are brothers and sisters.  Let us acknowledge one another as brothers and sisters, and walk together.  May the Lord bless you.  And please, pray for me.  Thank you.”[3]

Antipope Francis declares that we need to walk together with different false religions.  He also says that they are our “brothers and sisters”, even though they are outside the true faith and on the road to eternal damnation.  Francis closes by asking the leaders of demonic non-Christian religions to “please, pray for me”.  Antipope Francis is an apostate.

Francis’ August 18, 2014 in-flight press conference from South Korea to Rome.

Question: “Your Holiness, what kind of relationship do you have with Benedict XVI? Is there a regular exchange of opinions and ideas, is there a common project after this Encyclical?”

Francis: “We see one another… Before leaving, I went to visit him.  Two weeks before, he had sent me an interesting article and asked my opinion about it… We have a normal relationship because – I keep coming back to this idea which may not please some theologians (and I am no theologian) – I think that a Pope emeritus should not be an exception; after so many centuries, this is our first Pope emeritus.  As he put it: ‘I’ve grown old, I don’t have the strength’.  It was a fine gesture, noble yet also courageous… Ours is really a relationship between brothers.  I have also said that I feel as if I have a grandfather in the house of wisdom: he is a man of wisdom, of nuance, and I find it good for me to listen to himHe also encourages me a lot.  This is the relationship we have…”

Question: “Today how do you handle this immense popularity?  How do you deal with it?”

Francis: “… I realize that this is not going to last long, two or three years, and then… off to the house of the Father.”

Question: “Holy Father, in your opinion, given the war in Gaza, was the prayer for peace held in the Vatican on 8 June last a failure?”

Francis: “That prayer for peace was absolutely not a failure.  First, the initiative did not come from me.  The initiative to pray together came from the two Presidents, from the President of the State of Israel and from the President of the State of Palestine… But now your question: Was it a failure?  No, I think that the door is open.  All four, as representatives and I wanted Bartholomaios to be there as the head of Orthodoxy, the Ecumenical Patriarch of Orthodoxy – I don’t want to use terms which may not please all of the Orthodox – as Ecumenical Patriarch, it was good that he was with us.  The door of prayer was openedAnd we said: ‘We need to pray’.”[4]

Francis mentions his close relationship with arch-heretic Benedict XVI.  Francis also says: “I don’t want to use terms which may not please all of the Orthodox”.  The “Orthodox” are heretics and schismatics.  Francis doesn’t want to use any terms that may not please them because he is also a heretic.

Francis’ August 26, 2014 “message to the representatives of world religions” at international “peace” meeting in Antwerp, Belgium:

“I ask you kindly to convey my warm greetings and cordial good wishes to the representatives of Christian Churches and Ecclesial Communities and to the many leaders of the world religions assembled in Antwerp from 7-9 September 2014 for the International Peace Meeting.  I thank the Diocese of Antwerp and the Community of Sant’ Egidio for organizing this gathering in which men and women of different religious traditions come together on a pilgrimage of prayer and dialog inspired by the ‘spirit of Assisi’It is here that our various religious traditions can, in ‘the spirit of Assisi’, make a specific contribution to peace.  We can do this through the power of prayerAll of us have come to realize that prayer and dialog are profoundly interrelated and mutually enriching.  It is my hope that these days of prayer and dialog will serve as a powerful reminder that the pursuit of peace and understanding through prayer can forge lasting bonds of unity… I invoke upon all taking part in the Meeting and all who sustain them by the support of their prayers, the abundant blessings of the God of peace.”[5]

Here Francis clearly endorses the false worship of non-Catholic religions.  In fact, by promoting the demonic “spirit of Assisi”, Francis actually endorses idolatry and worships false gods himself; for he promotes that the worship of false gods in non-Christian religions (which occurred at Assisi) has “power”, is “enriching”, and is to be promoted.  Francis also endorses prayer with the unbelievers and members of false religions.  He says that prayer with them “can forge lasting bonds of unity”.  Francis is an idolater and an apostate.  He is following Antipope John Paul II’s example in that regard.

Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos (# 2), Jan. 6, 1928: “For which reason conventions, meetings and addresses are frequently arranged by these persons, at which a large number of listeners are present, and at which all without distinction are invited to join in the discussion, both infidels of every kind, and Christians… Certainly such attempts can nowise be approved by Catholics, founded as they are on that false opinion which considers all religions to be more or less good and praiseworthy, since they all in different ways manifest and signify that sense which is inborn in us all, and by which we are led to God and to the obedient acknowledgment of His rule.  Not only are those who hold this opinion in error and deceived, but also in distorting the idea of true religion they reject it, and little by little, turn aside to naturalism and atheism, as it is called; from which it clearly follows that one who supports those who hold these theories and attempt to realize them, is altogether abandoning the divinely revealed religion.”

Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos (# 10): “So, Venerable Brethren, it is clear why this Apostolic See has never allowed its subjects to take part in the assemblies of non-Catholics…”

Francis’ August 27, 2014 “catechesis”:

“And if we look at the history of the Church,there are so many divisions among us ChristiansEven now we are divided.  Also in history, we Christians have made war among ourselves for theological differences.  Let us think of the 30 Years War.  But, this is not Christian.  We must also work for the unity of all Christians, to take the path of unity which is what Jesus wanted and prayed for.”[6]

Antipope Francis says that Christians are divided.  That’s heresy.  All true Christians (Catholics) are united in the one true Catholic faith.  Pope Pius XI teaches the opposite of Antipope Francis.

Pope Pius XI encyclical Mortalium Animos (#7), Jan. 6, 1928:  “And here it seems opportune to expound and to refute a certain false opinion, on which this whole question, as well as that complex movement by which non-Catholics seek to bring about the union of the Christian churches depends. For authors who favor this view are accustomed, times almost without number, to bring forward these words of Christ: ‘That they all may be one…. And there shall be one fold and one shepherd,’ with this signification however: that Christ Jesus merely expressed a desire and prayer, which still lacks its fulfillment. For they are of the opinion that the unity of faith and government, which is a note of the one true Church of Christ, has hardly up to the present time existed, and does not to-day exist.”

Pope Pius XI encyclical Mortalium Animos (#9): “Everyone knows that John himself, the Apostle of love, who seems to reveal in his Gospel the secrets of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and who never ceased to impress on the memories of his followers the new commandment ‘Love one another,’ altogether forbade any intercourse with those who professed a mutilated and corrupt version of Christ’s teaching: ‘If any man come to you and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into the house nor say to him: God speed you.’

Francis’ August 27, 2014 address during meeting with soccer athletes and coaches participating in the “Interreligious Match for Peace”:

“Dear Friends, good evening!  I am delighted to meet with you on the occasion of the Interreligious Match for Peace in which you will play tonight at Rome’s Olympic Stadium.  I thank you for readily fulfilling my wish to see champions and coaches from various countries and religions compete in a sporting event to bear witness to the feelings of brotherhood and friendship.  My special thanks go to the people and organizations that have contributed to the realization of this event… Indeed, tonight’s sporting event is a highly symbolic gesture to help one understand that it is possible to build a culture of encounter… Believers of different religions, while preserving their own identity, can coexist in harmony and mutualrespectexcluding any discrimination of race, language and religion.  You know that discrimination can be synonymous with scorn.  Discrimination is a form of scorn, and you, with this game tonight, will say ‘no’ to every kind of discrimination. Religions in particular are called to be vehicles of peace…”[7]

Francis teaches that members of false religions should preserve “their own identity”, and thus remain outside the Catholic Church and on the road to Hell.  Francis also teaches that we must exclude “any” discrimination based on religion.  Instead, he says that we should have “brotherhood” with people who reject the true faith.  His message is one of pure religious indifferentism.

Francis’ September 21, 2014 address during meeting with leaders of different “religions” and other “Christian denominations”:

“Dear Friends,

It is a great pleasure to be here at this meeting which brings together leaders of the main religious confessions present in Albania.  With deep respect I greet each one of you and the communities that you representYou know well how much pain comes from the denial of freedom of conscience and of religious freedom, and how from such a wound comes a humanity that is impoverished because it lacks hope and ideals to guide it.  The changes that have come since the 1990’s have had the positive effect, among other things, of creating the conditions for the exercise of authentic religious freedomThis has made it possible for each community to renew traditions which were never really extinguished, despite ferocious persecution.  With this religious freedom has also come the possibility for every person to offer, according to their own religious convictions, a positive contribution; firstly, to the moral reconstruction of the country… We cannot deny that intolerance towards those with different religious convictions is a particularly insidious enemy, one which today is being witnessed in various areas around the world.  All believers must be particularly vigilant so that, in living out with conviction our religious and ethical code, we may always express the mystery we intend to honor… Seen in this light, religious freedom is not a right which can be guaranteed solely by existing legislation, although laws are necessary.  Rather religious freedom is a shared space – like this one – an atmosphere of respect and cooperation that must be built with everyone’s participation, even those who have no religious convictions.  Allow me to outline two attitudes which can be especially helpful in the advancement of this fundamental freedom.  The first attitude is that of regarding every man and woman, even those of different religious traditions, not as rivals, less still enemies, but rather as brothers and sistersthe same applies to religious, cultural and national communities.  We need each other, and are entrusted to each other’s care.  Each religious tradition, from within, must be able to take account of others… But it is everyone together, for the good of the country and of humanity.  Continue to be a sign for your country, and beyond, that good relations and fruitful cooperation are truly possible among men and women of different religions.  And I ask a favor: pray for me.  I have great need of your prayers.  Thank you.”[8]

Francis begins by declaring his “deep respect” for leaders of false religions.  Francis then promotes the condemned heresy of religious liberty and freedom of conscience.  That was specifically condemned by the Catholic Church.

Pope Pius IX, Quanta Cura (# 3), Dec. 8, 1864: “From which totally false idea of social government they do not fear to foster THAT ERRONEOUS OPINION, most fatal in its effects on the Catholic Church and the salvation of souls, called by Our predecessor, Gregory XVI, an insanity, NAMELY, THAT LIBERTY OF CONSCIENCE AND WORSHIP IS EACH MAN’S PERSONAL RIGHT, WHICH OUGHT TO BE LEGALLY PROCLAIMED AND ASSERTED IN EVERY RIGHTLY CONSTITUTED SOCIETY…”

Antipope Francis then encourages souls embracing false religions to promote “their own religious convictions”.  Francis says it will cause a “positive contribution firstly to the moral reconstruction of the country”.  This is astounding apostasy.  He calls the leaders of false religions “believers” and encourages them to publicly promote their false religions “with conviction”.  Francis also says to the leaders of false religions: “we need each other”.  Francis closes his message of apostasy by asking the leaders of demonic religions to “pray for me.  I have great need of your prayers”.  That is to endorse idolatry by encouraging the worship of false gods.  Those who see Francis’ statements, and continue to say he has the Catholic faith, don’t have the Catholic faith.  They will go to Hell unless they convert to the true faith before death.

Francis’ September 21, 2014 “Homily” in “Mother Teresa Square” in Tirana, Albania:

“Recalling the decades of atrocious suffering and harsh persecutions against Catholics, Orthodox and Muslims, we can say that Albania was a land of martyrs: many bishops, priests, men and women religious, laity, and clerics and ministers of other religions paid for their fidelity with their lives.”[9]

Francis says that heretics, Muslims, and members of “other religions” who died embracing their false religions were “martyrs”.  That is to teach that Muslims are martyrs!

Francis’ September 21, 2014 In-Flight interview with journalists on trip from Albania back to Rome:

Question: “Your Holiness set out with a certain idea of Albanians, of Albania.  How Albanians have suffered but are also tolerant.  Did you find any other qualities in the Albanians which you met?  Are these qualities the right ones to make the eagle return to the nest?”

Francis: “I would say that I came to a better understanding of those things you mentioned, but I was also able to see at close hand the suffering which you Albanians endured.  The matter of tolerance… I would put it differently.  Albanians are not so much ‘tolerant’ – they are brothers and sisters.  They have the ability to be brothers and sisters: and that is something more important.  And this is evident in the way they live with one another, in cooperation between Muslims, Orthodox and CatholicsThey cooperate, but as brothers and sisters…”

Question: “Your Holiness, what were your emotions as you drove down the central boulevard of Tirana, under the pictures of the clergy who were martyred during the communist regime, in a country in which until 25 years ago atheism had been officially imposed?”

Francis: “When I saw those photographs (and there were not only Catholics, but Orthodox also Muslims as wellSo I would say that all three religious groups bore witness to God and now they are bearing witness to brotherhood.”

Question: “Now that you have made this visit to Albania, which is in Europe, what will be your next ones?”

Francis: “The next visits will be on 25 November to Strasbourg, for both the Council of Europe and the European Parliament.  And then 28 November, perhaps, to Turkey, to be present on the 30th for the Feast of St Andrew with Patriarch Bartholomaios.”[10]

Francis says that Muslims are “brothers and sisters” and that deceased “martyred” Muslims “bore witness to God”.  Francis then tells the press that he might have to take a special trip “to be present” with his fellow schismatic “Orthodox” leader, “Patriarch Bartholomaios”.

Francis’ September 21, 2014 address to the political and civil authorities of Albania:

“I am very happy to be here with you, in this noble land of Albania, a land of heroes who sacrificed their lives for the independence of the nation, and a land of martyrs, who witnessed to their faith in difficult times of persecution… Respect for human rights – for you, ‘respect’ is an essential word – among which religious freedom and freedom of expression stand out, is the preliminary condition for a country’s social and economic developmentThere is a rather beautiful characteristic of Albania, one which is given great care and attention, and which gives me great joy: I am referring to the peaceful coexistence and collaboration that exists among followers of different religions.  The climate of respect andmutual trust between Catholics, Orthodox and Muslims is a precious gift to the country… What the experience in Albania shows, rather, is that a peaceful and fruitful coexistence between persons and communities of believers of different religions is not only desirable, but possible and realistic.  The peaceful coexistence of different religious communities is, in fact, an inestimable benefit to peace and to harmonious human advancementThis is something of value which needs to be protected and nourished each day, by providing an education which respects differences and particular identities, so that dialog and cooperation for the good of all may be promoted and strengthened by mutual understanding and esteemIt is a gift which we need to implore God in prayer.  May Albania always continue to walk this path, offering to others countries an inspiring example.”[11]

Francis mentions that the predominantly Muslim country of Albania is “a land of martyrs, who witnessed to their faith”.  He again speaks about collaboration “among followers of different [false] religions”.  Francis asks for “respect” and “trust” for Muslims.  Francis says that we should “esteem” differences between religions.  He also encourages and endorses idolatry again when he tells the non-Christians (who worship a false god or gods) to “implore God in prayer”.   This is total apostasy from the Catholic faith.

Francis’ September 21, 2014 address at the Bethany Center:

“This Centre, furthermore, shows that it is possible to live together peacefully and fraternally as people of different ethnicities and followers of various religious confessionsHere differences do not prevent harmony, joy and peace, but rather become occasions for a greater mutual awareness and understanding.  The variety of religious experiences reveals a true and reverential love of neighbor; each religious community expresses itself through love…”[12]

Here Antipope Francis says that differences in religions don’t prevent joy.  He then praises the “variety of religious experiences” as if it’s good that people don’t believe in the Catholic faith and follow false religions.  He is an apostate.

Francis’ September 23, 2014 address to the “Bishops” of Ghana:

Be close to other Christian leaders and the heads of other religious communities. Ecumenical and interreligious cooperation, when carried outwith respect and an open heart, contributes to the social  harmony of your country, and enables growth in an understanding of the dignity of each person and a greater experience of our common humanity. Thankfully, Ghana has been spared much of the tribal, ethnic and religious divisions that have afflicted too many other parts of Africa, a continent whose promise, in part due to these divisions, has yet to be fulfilled.”[13]

Francis encourages “Catholic bishops” to “be close” to the “leaders and heads” of false “religions”.

Francis’ September 24, 2014 “catechesis” at General Audience – He spoke about his journey to Albania:

“This visit was born of my desire to go to a country which, after long being oppressed by an atheist and inhuman regime, is living the experience of peaceful coexistence among the country’s different religious components.  I felt it was important to encourage it on this path, that it may continue with tenacity to evaluate all the implications for the benefit of the common good. For this reason the Journey had at its center an interreligious meeting where I was able to observe, with great satisfaction, that the peaceful and fruitful coexistence between persons and communities of believers of different religions is not only desirable, but possible and realistic.  They are putting it into practice!  This entails an authentic and fruitful dialogue which spurns relativism and takes the identity of each one into account. What the various religious expressions have in common is, indeed, life’s journey, the good will to do good to one’s neighbor, without denying or diminishing their respective identity…  Travelling along Tirana’s principal boulevard which leads from the airport to the great central square, I was able to glimpse the portraits of 40 priests assassinated during the communist dictatorship, for whom the Cause of Beatification has been opened. These are joined by hundredsof Christian and Muslim religious men and women assassinated, tortured, imprisoned and deported simply because they believed in God. There were dark years during which religious freedom was razed to the ground and belief in God was prohibited.  Thousands of churches and mosques were destroyed, transformed into warehouses and cinemas which propagated the Marxist ideology.  Religious books were burned and parents were prohibited from giving their children the religious names of their ancestors.  The memory of these tragic events is essential for the future of a people. The memory of martyrs who resisted in faith is a guarantee for the future of Albania; because their blood was not shed in vain, but is a seed which will bear the fruit of peace and fraternal cooperation.  Today, in fact, Albania is an example not only of the rebirth of the Church, but also of the peaceful coexistence of religions.  Thus, the martyrs are not the defeated, but the victors…”[14]

Francis (once again) promotes an apostate interreligious prayer meeting.  Francis then complains about the fact that “mosques were destroyed”.  Islam, the false religion Antipope Francis promotes, has been condemned by true Catholic popes as “abominable” and “diabolical”.

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Basel, 1434: “… there is hope that very many from the abominable sect of Mahomet will be converted to the Catholic faith.”[15]

Pope Callixtus III: “I vow to… exalt the true Faith, and to extirpate the diabolical sect of the reprobate and faithless Mahomet [Islam] in the East.”[16]

Antipope Francis then clearly teaches that Muslims are “martyrs”.  He says that “their blood was not shed in vain” and will “bear fruit”.  Francis says that these Muslim “martyrs” are “the victors” and “resisted in faith”.  This is total apostasy.  At the Council of Florence Pope Eugene IV declared that anyone who dies outside the Catholic Church will be lost forever.

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, “Cantate Domino”, 1441, ex cathedra: “The Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that all those who are outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans but also Jews or heretics and schismatics, cannot share in eternal life and will go into the everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels, unless they are joined to the Church before the end of their lives; that the unity of this ecclesiastical body is of such importance that only for those who abide in it do the Church’s sacraments contribute to salvation and do fasts, almsgiving and other works of piety and practices of the Christian militia produce eternal rewards; and that nobody can be saved, no matter how much he has given away in alms and even if he has shed blood in the name of Christ, unless he has persevered in the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church.”

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, The Athanasian Creed, Sess. 8, Nov. 22, 1439, ex cathedra: “Whoever wishes to be saved, needs above all to hold the Catholic faith; unless each one preserves this whole and inviolate, he will without a doubt perish in eternity.”[17]

Pope Pelagius II, epistle (2) Dilectionis vestrae, 585: “Those who were not willing to be at agreement in the Church of God, cannot remain with God; although given over to flames and fires, they burn, or thrown to wild beasts, they lay down their lives, there will not be for them that crown of faith, but the punishment of faithlessness, not a glorious result (of religious virtue), but the ruin of despair. Such a one can be slain; he cannot be crowned.”[18]

Pope Pius IV, Council of Trent, “Iniunctum nobis”, Nov. 13, 1565, ex cathedra: “This true Catholic faith, outside of which no one can be saved… I now profess and truly hold…” (Denz. 1000)

Francis’ September 25, 2014 to participants in the meeting on “Evangelii Gaudium”:

“The Word of God entered with ‘patience’ at the moment of the Incarnation, and was constant until death on the Cross.  We do not have a ‘magic wand’ for everything…”[19]

Francis likes to speak of a “magic wand”, but Catholics don’t believe in magic.

Francis’ September 29, 2014 address to “United Bible Societies” on the occasion of the presentation of a new “inter-confessional Bible” at his General Audience:

The translation of the Bible into modern Argentine, prepared by Evangelicals and Catholics, has done so much good and does so much good… The preparation of an inter-confessional version is a particularly significant labor, considering how much the debates about Scripture have led to division, especially in the West.  This inter-confessional project, which has given you the opportunity to journey on a common path for several decades, has allowed you to entrust your heart to fellow travelers on the path, overcoming suspicions and skepticism, with the trust that flows from a shared love for the Word of God.”[20]

Here Antipope Francis endorses an “inter-confessional version” of the Bible.  He also dismisses the dogmas rejected by Protestants as simply “debates about Scripture” which “have led to division”.

Antipope Francis says “Thank God, I have no Church” and repeatedly rejects proselytism

Francis’ interview with “Il Messaggero”.  The interview was published on June 29, 2014:

Question for Francis: “Why have you, from the very beginning, chosen to stress your role as the Bishop of Rome?”

Francis: “Francis’ first service is this: to be the Bishop of Rome.”

Question for Francis: “Where is Bergoglio’s Church headed?”

Francis: “Thank God, I have no Church; I follow Christ.”[1]

The interviewer asks Francis about where his “Church” is headed.  Antipope Francis, a person many consider to be the head of the Catholic Church, responds by saying: “Thank God, I have no Church.”  This is an incredible heresy.  It’s a public statement that he is not a member of the Catholic Church, and that he is not the pope.  Catholics profess belief in the Catholic Church in the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene-Constantinople Creed, and many dogmatic councils.

 

Francis’ June 16, 2014 address to “the diocese of Rome”:

“… the Church must do something, must change, must convert in order to become mother.  She must be fruitful!… This is not a question of seeking to proselytize, no, no!  To go ring the bell: ‘Would you like to come to this association called the Catholic Church?…’… The Church – Benedict XVI told us – does not grow through proselytism…”[2]

Francis says the Church “must change” and “must convert”.  This is heretical.  Francis once again condemns proselytism – that is, attempting to convert non-Catholics to the Catholic faith.  He has done this many times.  To say that he has the Catholic faith, in the face of such a fact, is to blaspheme.  Francis quotes the apostate Antipope Benedict XVI to support his rejection of converting non-Catholics.

 

Francis’ June 16, 2014 address to “His Grace” Justin Welby, the “Archbishop” of Canterbury:

“‘Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity!’ (Ps 133:1)  Once again we meet, Your Graceas co-workers in the Lord’s vineyard and fellow pilgrims on the path to his Kingdom.  I welcome you and the distinguished members of your delegation… We must walk together. Your Grace, I thank you once more for your visit. I ask the Lord to shower his blessings on your ministry and to sustain you and your loved ones in joy and peace.  Amen.”[3]

Francis says that he is in “unity” with the non-Catholic leader, Justin Welby.  He clearly teaches that Welby is in the Church when he says that he is a “co-worker in the Lord’s vineyard”!  That is completely heretical.  Francis also clearly indicates that the heretic Welby is on the road to the Kingdom of Heaven, rather than to Hell.  Welby, by the way, in addition to being a complete heretic and schismatic, accepts homosexuality.  Welby has spoken out strongly against “homophobia”.  Welby also said: “You see gay relationships that are just stunning in the quality of the relationship”.[4]  Francis (as usual) calls the non-Catholic leader Welby “Your Grace”.  Antipope Francis ends by asking “the Lord to shower his blessings on your ministry”.  Welby’s “ministry” is wicked, false, schismatic, and heretical.  It leads souls to eternal damnation.

 

On July 26, 2014, Francis answered questions from “priests” from “the Diocese of Caserta”.  Francis recounts a story a “priest” told him about a woman who left “Catholicism” and joined a Protestant sect.  The “priest” told Francis that the woman (now a Protestant) kept a statue of The Blessed Virgin.  The Protestant woman said that she now keeps the statue in the closet, for fear that her Protestant “pastor” might find it.  Francis said the “priest” told him that the woman has not returned to “the Catholic Church”, and that “she continues to go to Protestant” services.  Francis then says: 

“And he did not go beyond that, and he did not urge her to return to the Catholic Church.  It is that prudent closeness, which knows just how far one can reach… Proselytism is a trap… And Pope Benedict has a beautiful expression.  He said it in Aparecida but I believe he repeated it elsewhere: ‘The Church grows not by proselytism, but by attraction.’”[5]

Francis once again confirms what he has said many times before: do “not urge” non-Catholics “to return to the Catholic Church”.  This is word for word the opposite of Catholic teaching.

Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos (# 10), Jan. 6, 1928: “… the union of Christians can only be promoted by promoting thereturn to the one true Church of Christ of those who are separated from it…”

When teaching that horrible heresy, Francis once again quotes the apostate Antipope Benedict XVI (who likewise condemned proselytism).

 

Francis’ July 28, 2014 address during his visit to the “pastor” and community of the “Pentecostal Church of Reconciliation” in Caserta, Italy:

“Good morning, Brothers and Sisters,

My brother, Pastor Giovanni, began speaking about the center of our life: to be in the presence of Jesus… From the first moment of Christianity, there has been this temptation in the Christian community.  ‘I am this; ‘I am that’,  ‘No!  I am the Church, you are the sect’… And thus who acquires us is he, the father of division.  Not the Lord Jesus, who prayed for unity (Jn 17), he prayed!  What does the Holy Spirit make?  I said he makes something else, which one might think of as division, but it isn’t.  The Holy Spirit creates ‘diversity’ in the Church.  The First Letter to the Corinthians, chapter 12.  He creates diversity!It’s true this diversity is so rich, so beautiful.  But then, the same Holy Spirit creates unity, and this way the Church is one in diversity.  And, to use a beautiful word of an Evangelist whom I love very much, a diversity ‘reconciled’ by the Holy Spirit.  He does both these things: he creates the diversity of charismata and then makes harmony of the charismata… This is unity in diversity.  It is on this path that we Christians do what we call by the theological name of ecumenism… Some may be shocked: ‘But the Pope went to the Evangelists!’  He went to visit his brothers!  Yes!  Because – and what I speak is the truth – they first came to visit me in Buenos Aires.  And there is a witness here: Jorge Himitian can tell the story of when they came, they made the approach… And thus this friendship began, this closeness between the pastors of Buenos Aires, and here today.  I thank you.  I ask you to pray for me, I need it… that at least I won’t be so bad.  Thank you!”[6]

Here Francis clearly teaches that heretical Protestant sects were willed by the Spirit!  He also condemns the idea that one group says “I am the Church, you are the sect”!  He says that position is from “the father of division”.  He thus teaches that it’s of the Devil for the Catholic Church to teach that it alone is the true Church, with non-Catholic sects being false.  Francis calls the Protestant “minister”, who is a layman, a “pastor” and “my brother”.

Francis then mentions his closeness with “pastors” of Protestant sects and asks them to pray for him.  Francis declares that if these Protestants pray for him he “won’t be so bad”.  He is a complete and total apostate.

Antipope Francis’ Heresies from June to July 2014

Francis’ June 1, 2014 address to the “Charismatic Renewal”:

“I thank Renewal in the Spirit, the ICCRS [International Catholic Charismatic Renewal Service] and the Catholic Fraternity for this opportunity to be with you, which is a source of great joy for me.  I am grateful for the presence here of the first members of the renewal, who had an intense experience of the Holy Spirit’s power… You, the charismatic renewal, have received a great gift from the Lord.  Your movement’s birth was willed by the Holy Spirit to be ‘a current of grace in the Church and for the Church’.  This is your identity: to be a current of grace… When I think of charismatics, I think of the Church herself, but in a particular way: I think of a great orchestra, where all the instruments and voices are different from one another, yet all are needed to create the harmony of the music… a few months before entering the conclave, I was named the spiritual assistant for the charismatic renewal in Argentina by the Conference of Bishops… The charismatic renewal is a great force meant to serve the preaching of the Gospel in the joy of the Holy Spirit.  You received the Holy SpiritYou, the people of God, the people of the charismatic renewal, must be careful not to lose the freedom which the Holy Spirit has given you!Remember that ‘the charismatic renewal is de facto ecumenical in natureThe Catholic renewal rejoices in what the Holy Spirit is accomplishing in the other Churches’ .”[1]

Antipope Francis promotes the “Charismatic” movement by saying that its “birth was willed by the Holy Spirit”.  The antipopes of the Vatican II sect have repeatedly promoted the demonic “Charismatic” movement.  However, the movement was not willed by the Holy Spirit, but rather the Devil.  The “Charismatic” movement is not Catholic and is the product of an evil spirit.  True Catholics know and believe that the gift of the Holy Spirit is given in Confirmation.  Many “Charismatics”, on the other hand, believe that people receive the gift of the Holy Spirit in the “rites” of “the Charismatic movement”.  They believe the “spirit” is transmitted when one is “slain in the spirit”, etc.  It’s the devil’s substitute for Confirmation.  That’s why people receive the Devil, instead of the Holy Spirit, when they participate in such rites.  At some of these meetings people have oinked like pigs, barked like dogs, rolled on the ground, laughed hysterically, etc.  Those things are clear signs of demonic possession and demonic activity.  About 25 years ago I had a friend who told me he was once heavily involved in the “Charismatic” movement and their “prayer meetings”.  He eventually left “the Charismatic” movement.  But he told me that while present at one of their meetings a man put his hand on him, and then he felt a demon enter him.  Antipope Francis closes his heretical address by saying that “Catholic charismatics” rejoice “in what the Holy Spirit is accomplishing in the other [non-Catholic] Churches”.  His statement means that the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, is responsible for heretical and schismatic “churches”.  That is heresy.

Francis’ June 5, 2014 address to “His Holiness” Aram I, after “a moment of prayer” at the ‘Redemptoris Mater’:

Your Holiness,
Dear Brother in Christ,

It is a particular joy for me to extend to Your Holiness, and to the distinguished members of your delegation, a cordial greeting in the Lord Jesus…  It is a greeting which I also offer to the bishops, the clergy and all the faithful of the Catholicosate of Cilicia… One month ago, I had the pleasure of receiving His Holiness Catholicos Karekin II.  Today I have the joy of welcoming Your Holiness, the Catholicos of the Great House of Cilicia.  Together with you, I give thanks to the Lord for the continued growth of fraternal relations between us.  I consider it a true gift from God that we can share this moment of encounter and common prayerYour Holiness’ commitment to the cause of Christian unity is known to all.  You have been especially active in the World Council of Churches… May he, the Paraclete, inspire our journey towards unity.  May he teach us to strengthen the fraternal bonds which even now unite us in the one baptism and in the one faith.”[2]

Aram I is a schismatic leader.  Francis repeatedly calls the schismatic leader “Your Holiness”, and he refers to the members of his schismatic sect as “the faithful”.  Antipope Francis talks about “common prayer” with schismatics and he praises them for being active in the heretical “World Council of Churches”.  Francis ends by stating that he is united “in the one faith” with schismatics.  Francis’ statements are completely heretical.

Francis’ June 8, 2014 reflection on “the meeting for peace” in the Holy Land – which would take place later in the day in the Vatican gardens:

“Dear Brothers and Sisters,

As you know, this evening at the Vatican, the Presidents of Israel and Palestine will join meand my brother, Bartholomaios, the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople, to invoke God…”[3]

Antipope Francis promotes the fact that he will be invoking “God” with members of non-Catholic religions.

Francis’ June 8, 2014 address at “the meeting for peace” in the Vatican gardens:

“I also thank Your Holiness, my venerable BrotherBartholomaios, for joining me in welcoming these illustrious guestsYour presence here is a great giftThis meeting of prayer for peace in the Holy Land, in the Middle East and in the entire world is accompanied by the prayers of countless people of different cultures, nations, languages and religions: they have prayed for this meeting and even now they are united with us in the same supplication… Renew our hearts and minds, so that the word which always brings us together will be “brother”, and our way of life will always be that of: Shalom, Peace, Salaam! Amen.”[4]

Francis (as usual) calls the schismatic leader “venerable”.  He also endorses and promotes the prayers of “countless people” from various false religions.  Francis says he is united with them in prayer.

Francis’ June 15, 2014 address to the community of Sant’ Egidio:

“The world suffocates without dialog: for this you also make your contribution, in order to promote friendship among religions.” [5]

Antipope Francis promotes “friendship among religions”, which means acceptance of false religions and their false teachings about God.

Francis’ June 16, 2014 address to “the diocese of Rome”:

“… the Church must do something, must change, must convert in order to become mother.  She must be fruitful!… This is not a question of seeking to proselytize,no, no!  To go ring the bell: ‘Would you like to come to this association called the Catholic Church?…’… The Church – Benedict XVI told us – does not grow through proselytism…”[6]

Francis says the Church “must change” and “must convert”.  This is heretical.  Francis once again condemns proselytism – that is, attempting to convert non-Catholics to the Catholic faith.  He has done this many times.  To say that he has the Catholic faith, in the face of such a fact, is to blaspheme.  Francis quotes the apostate Antipope Benedict XVI to support his rejection of converting non-Catholics.

Francis’ June 16, 2014 address to “His Grace” Justin Welby, the “Archbishop” of Canterbury:

“‘Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity!’ (Ps 133:1)  Once again we meet, Your Grace, as co-workers in the Lord’s vineyard and fellow pilgrims on the path to his Kingdom.  I welcome you and the distinguished members of your delegation… We must walk together.Your Grace, I thank you once more for your visit.I ask the Lord to shower his blessings on your ministryand to sustain you and your loved ones in joy and peace.  Amen.”[7]

Francis says that he is in “unity” with the non-Catholic leader, Justin Welby.  He clearly teaches that Welby is in the Church when he says that he is a “co-worker in the Lord’s vineyard”!  That is completely heretical.  Francis also clearly indicates that the heretic Welby is on the road to the Kingdom of Heaven, rather than to Hell.  Welby, by the way, in addition to being a complete heretic and schismatic, accepts homosexuality.  Welby has spoken out strongly against “homophobia”.  Welby also said: “You see gay relationships that are just stunning in the quality of the relationship”.[8]  Francis (as usual) calls the non-Catholic leader Welby “Your Grace”.  Antipope Francis ends by asking “the Lord to shower his blessings on your ministry”.  Welby’s “ministry” is wicked, false, schismatic, and heretical.  It leads souls to eternal damnation.

Francis’ June 20, 2014 address at conference on “religious freedom and international law”:

“The debate over religious freedom has become very intense recently, turning to both Governments and religious Confessions.  On this matter, the Catholic Church refers to the Declaration Dignitatis Humanae, one of the most important documents of the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council… Religious freedom is not only that of private thought or worshipIt is the liberty to live, both privately and publicly, according to the ethical principles resulting from found truth… Legal systems, therefore, whether state or international, are called upon to recognize, guarantee and protect religious freedom, which is an intrinsic right inherent to human nature, to the dignity of being free, and is also a sign of a healthy democracy and one of the principle sources of the legitimacy of the State.  Religious freedom, acknowledged in constitutions and laws and expressed in consistent conduct promotes the development of relationships of mutual respect among the diverse Confessions and their healthy collaboration with the State and political society… I truly hope that your conference defines in depth and great precision the justifications that obligate every legal system to respect and defend religious freedom.  I thank you for this contribution.” [9]

Francis’ statement that religious freedom must be guaranteed in law, and that everyone must be able to promote their beliefs publicly, has been consistently condemned by true popes.  It alone would prove that he’s a heretic.

Francis’ June 26, 2014 address.  He spoke about “Eastern Christians” and “ROACO”:

“… overcome persistent forms of discrimination, starting with those based on religion… in full respect for their identity and religious freedom.”[10]

Antipope Francis teaches that there can be no discrimination of any kind against false religions.

Francis’ words on June 28, 2014 when he received a delegation of the “Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople”:

“The Solemnity of the Holy Patrons of the Church of Rome, the Apostles Peter and Paul, once again gives me the joy of greeting a delegation from the sister Church of Constantinople.  In extending to you a warm welcome, I express my gratitude to the Ecumenical Patriarch, His Holiness Bartholomaios I, and to the Holy Synod for having sent you to share with us in the joy of this feast.  I have vivid and moving memories of my recent meetings with my beloved brother Bartholomaios… I consider it a special gift from the Lord that we were able to venerate the holy places together and to pray at each other’s side… The joy of that meeting was then renewed when, in a certain sense, we concluded our pilgrimage here at the tomb of the Apostle Peter as we joined in fervent prayer, together with the Presidents of Israel and Palestine… We need to let ourselves be caught up in Christ’s loving gaze upon the Church, his Bride, in our journey of spiritual ecumenism.  It is a journey upheld by the martyrdomof so many of our brothers and sisters who, by their witness to Jesus Christ the Lord, have brought about an ecumenism of blood.  Dear members of the Delegation, with sentiments of sincere respect, friendship and love in Christ, I renew my heartfelt gratitude for your presence among us.  I ask you to convey my greeting to my venerable brother Bartholomaios and to continue to pray for me…”[11]

Francis calls the schismatic “Orthodox” church of Constantinople a “sister Church”, “the Holy Synod”, “The Church”, and Christ’s “Bride”.  He calls the leader of the schismatic church his “beloved” and “venerable brother”.  Antipope Francis says it is “a special gift from the Lord” to commit mortal sin by praying with the leader of a non-Catholic sect.  Francis mentions joining in “fervent prayer” with the schismatic leader and political leaders from Israel and Palestine, who are of the Jewish and Muslim “faith”.  Francis ends by saying that there are non-Catholic martyrs, promoting “an ecumenism of blood”, and asking the schismatics to “continue to pray for me”.  Antipope Francis is a schismatic.

Francis’ interview with “Il Messaggero”.  The interview was published on June 29, 2014:

Question for Francis: “Why have you, from the very beginning, chosen to stress your role as the Bishop of Rome?”

Francis: “Francis’ first service is this: to be the Bishop of Rome.”

Question for Francis: “Where is Bergoglio’s Church headed?”

Francis: “Thank God, I have no Church; I follow Christ.”[12]

The interviewer asks Francis about where his “Church” is headed.  Antipope Francis, a person many consider to be the head of the Catholic Church, responds by saying: “Thank God, I have no Church.”  This is an incredible heresy.  It’s a public statement that he is not a member of the Catholic Church, and that he is not the pope.  Catholics profess belief in the Catholic Church in the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene-Constantinople Creed, and many dogmatic councils.

Francis’ June 29, 2014 homily for the feast day of St. Peter and St. Paul:

“On this Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul, the principle patrons of Rome, we welcome with joy and gratitude the Delegation sent by the Ecumenical Patriarch, our venerable and beloved brother Bartholomaios, and led by Metropolitan Ioannis.”[13]

Francis once again calls the schismatic leader “venerable and beloved”.

On July 26, 2014, Francis answered questions from “priests” from “the Diocese of Caserta”.  Francis recounts a story a “priest” told him about a woman who left “Catholicism” and joined a Protestant sect.  The “priest” told Francis that the woman (now a Protestant) kept a statue of The Blessed Virgin.  The Protestant woman said that she now keeps the statue in the closet, for fear that her Protestant “pastor” might find it.  Francis said the “priest” told him that the woman has not returned to “the Catholic Church”, and that “she continues to go to Protestant” services.  Francis then says: 

“And he did not go beyond that, and he did not urge her to return to the Catholic Church.  It is that prudent closeness, which knows just how far one can reach… Proselytism is a trap… And Pope Benedict has a beautiful expression.  He said it in Aparecida but I believe he repeated it elsewhere: ‘The Church grows not by proselytism, but by attraction.’” [14]

Francis once again confirms what he has said many times before: do “not urge” non-Catholics “to return to the Catholic Church”.  This is word for word the opposite of Catholic teaching.

Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos (# 10), Jan. 6, 1928: “… the union of Christians can only be promoted by promoting thereturn to the one true Church of Christ of those who are separated from it…”

When teaching that horrible heresy, Francis once again quotes the apostate Antipope Benedict XVI (who likewise condemned proselytism).

Francis’ July 28, 2014 address during his visit to the “pastor” and community of the “Pentecostal Church of Reconciliation” in Caserta, Italy:

“Good morning, Brothers and Sisters,

My brother, Pastor Giovanni, began speaking about the center of our life: to be in the presence of Jesus… From the first moment of Christianity, there has been this temptation in the Christian community.  ‘I am this; ‘I am that’,  ‘No!  I am the Church, you are the sect’… And thus who acquires us is he, the father of division.  Not the Lord Jesus, who prayed for unity (Jn 17), he prayed!  What does the Holy Spirit make?  I said he makes something else, which one might think of as division, but it isn’t.  The Holy Spirit creates ‘diversity’ in the Church.  The First Letter to the Corinthians, chapter 12.  He creates diversity!It’s true this diversity is so rich, so beautiful.  But then, the same Holy Spirit creates unity, and this way the Church is one in diversity.  And, to use a beautiful word of an Evangelist whom I love very much, a diversity ‘reconciled’ by the Holy Spirit.  He does both these things: he creates the diversity of charismata and then makes harmony of the charismata… This is unity in diversity.  It is on this path that we Christians do what we call by the theological name of ecumenism… Some may be shocked: ‘But the Pope went to the Evangelists!’  He went to visit his brothers!  Yes!  Because – and what I speak is the truth – they first came to visit me in Buenos Aires.  And there is a witness here: Jorge Himitian can tell the story of when they came, they made the approach… And thus this friendship began, this closeness between the pastors of Buenos Aires, and here today.  I thank you.  I ask you to pray for me, I need itthat at least I won’t be so bad.  Thank you!” [15]

Here Francis clearly teaches that heretical Protestant sects were willed by the Spirit!  He also condemns the idea that one group says “I am the Church, you are the sect”!  He says that position is from “the father of division”.  He thus teaches that it’s of the Devil for the Catholic Church to teach that it alone is the true Church, with non-Catholic sects being false.  Francis calls the Protestant “minister”, who is a layman, a “pastor” and “my brother”.

Francis then mentions his closeness with “pastors” of Protestant sects and asks them to pray for him.  Francis declares that if these Protestants pray for him he “won’t be so bad”.  He is a complete and total apostate.

Antipope Francis’ Heresies from April to May 2014

Francis’ April 2, 2014 telegram message to Mor Ignatius Aphrem, the new “Supreme Patriarch” of the Syrian “Orthodox” church:

I received with joy the news of the election of Your Holiness as Patriarch of Antioch and all the East and Supreme Head of the Universal Syrian Orthodox Church.  I gladly extend to you and to the clergy and faithful of the Syrian Orthodox Patriarchate my good wishes and prayerful solidarity, asking the Holy Spirit to bestow his abundant blessings upon your lofty ministryIt is my prayer that Your Holiness may be a spiritual father for your people…” [1]

Francis expresses “joy” about the “election” of a new schismatic leader, Mor Ignatius Aphrem.  He claims that the schismatic leader is the “Patriarch” of the city of Antioch, Turkey “and all the East”.  Antipope Francis calls Mor Ignatius Aphrem’s schismatic followers “faithful”.  He also says that it’s a “lofty ministry” to be a leading schismatic.

Francis’ April 7, 2014 Address to “Bishops” of Tanzania:

I am particularly encouraged to know that Tanzania is committed to ensuring the freedom that followers of various religions enjoy to practice their faithThe ongoing protection and promotion of this fundamental human right strengthens society by enabling believers, in fidelity to the dictates of their conscience and in respect for the dignity and rights of all…”[2]

The apostate Francis is “particularly encouraged to know” that a country ensures freedom for various false religions to publicly practice their “faith”.  He says this “strengthens society”.  He calls the practitioners of various false religions “believers”.

Francis’ May 3, 2014 address to the “bishops” of Sri Lanka:

“Sri Lanka is a country not only of rich ethnic diversity, but also of various religious traditions; this highlights the importance of interreligious and ecumenical dialog for fostering mutual knowledge and enrichment… I urge you, therefore, to be ever vigilant and to work with governmental authorities and other religious leaders…”[3]

Antipope Francis praises Sri Lanka for its presence of various false religions.  He indicates that false religions are a source of “enrichment”.

Francis’ May 5, 2014 letter to Tawadros II, schismatic “pope” of Alexandria, Egypt:

“To His Holiness Tawadros II

Pope of Alexandria and

Patriarch of the See of Saint Mark

As the first anniversary of our fraternal meeting in Rome on 10 May 2013 approaches, I take this opportunity to write to Your Holiness as a way of reliving the joy and gratitude we experienced on that occasion.  Our encounter strengthened those spiritual bonds which unite the See of Peter and the See of Markwe already experience a real communion… Building upon our shared moment of prayer in the course of Your Holiness’s visit to Rome, let us continue to pray to God… From the Vatican, 5 May 2014

Francis” [4]

Francis says the schismatic leader is the leader of “the See of Mark”.  He claims Catholics are united with “spiritual bonds” to the schismatic.  He asserts that the Catholic Church “experiences a real communion” with schismatics.  The Catholic Church teaches precisely the opposite of the schismatic Antipope Francis.

Pope St. Leo the Great, Sermon 129: “Wherefore, since outside the Catholic Church there is nothing perfect, nothing undefiled… we are in no way likened with those who are divided from the unity of the Body of Christ; we are joined in no communion.”

Francis’ May 8, 2014 address welcoming “His Holiness” Karekin II, schismatic “supreme Patriarch” of the Armenian “Apostolic Church” with whom Francis shared “a moment of prayer”:

His Holiness,

Dear Brothers in Christ

I gladly offer a most heartfelt welcome to you and to the distinguished delegation accompanying you… I wish to thank Your Holiness for the effective support given to ecumenical dialog, and in particular to the work of the joint commission for theological dialog between the Catholic Church and the Oriental Orthodox Churches, and for the skillful theological contributions offered by representatives… Let us pray for each other: may the Holy Spirit enlighten us and lead us…”[5]

Francis asks the schismatic leader to pray for him.  He says that schismatic theologians are “skillful” and thanks them for their schismatic contributions.

Francis’ May 19, 2014 message sent to the “Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialog”, “Cardinal” Jean-Louis Tauran:

“To My Venerable Brother

Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran

President of the Pontifical Council

For Interreligious Dialog

On the occasion of this important commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialog, I am pleased to convey my warm greeting to you, Venerable Brother… As I had the chance to recall in the very first days of my ministry as the Bishop of Rome, ‘the Catholic Church is conscious of the importance of promoting friendship and respect between men and women of different religious traditions’…

Francis” [6]

“Cardinal” Jean-Louis Tauran is the apostate who sends out greetings to various false religions every year.  Those greetings of apostasy are published in the Vatican’s newspaper, L’ Osservatore Romano.  As we can see, Francis fully endorses Tauran’s “ministry” of apostasy.

Francis’ May 19, 2014 General Audience looking back at his “pilgrimage to the Holy Land”:

“As you know, in the past days I made a pilgrimage to the Holy Land… that blessed Land which saw the historical presence of Jesus and where fundamental events for Judaism, Christianity and Islam took place… my meeting with His Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew, our beloved brother in Christ, represented the culminating moment of the visit.  Together we prayed at the Sepulchre of Jesus, and with us were the Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem Theophilos III and the Apostolic Armenian PatriarchWe are all brothers in Christ and with Patriarch Bartholomew we are friends, brothers, and we have shared the desire to walk together, to do all that we can do from this day forward: pray together, work together for God’s flockThe Spirit allows one to adopt these attitudes in daily life, with people of various cultures and religions, and thus to become ‘craftsmen’ of peace…” [7]

Antipope Francis praises the fact that the Middle East has seen important events for the false religion of Islam.  He calls a schismatic leader “our beloved brother in Christ”, and he mentions how he prayed with schismatic leaders.  Praying with the leaders of non-Catholic religions has always been forbidden by the Catholic Church.  Francis also says that schismatic leaders are leaders of “God’s flock”.

Francis’ May 21, 2014 “catechesis” at General Audience:

“Once I was in the countryside and I heard a saying from a simple person who had a great love for flowers and took care of them.  He said to me: ‘We must take care of the beautiful things that God has given us!  Creation is ours so that we can receive good things from it.  God forgives always, we men forgive sometimes, but creation never forgives and if you don’t care for it, it will destroy you’.  This should make us think…”[8]

Francis speaks about how “creation never forgives”.  That is pantheistic nonsense.  Francis seems to be saying that creation will judge us, in addition to God.  In fact, he seems to indicate that even though God will forgive, one will still have to answer to “creation”.

Francis’ May 24, 2014 address to the Jordanian authorities:

“I also greet the members of the Royal Family, the government and the people of Jordan, this land so rich in history and with such great religious significance for Judaism, Christianity and IslamI take this opportunity to reiterate my profound respect and esteem for the Muslim community and my appreciation for the leadership of His Majesty the King in promoting a better understanding of the virtues taught by Islam and a climate of serene coexistence between the faithful of the different religions… I am grateful that Jordan has supported a number of important initiatives aimed at advancing interreligious dialog and understanding between Jews, Christians and Muslims.  I think in particular of the Amman Message and the support given within the United Nations Organization to the annual celebration of World Interfaith Harmony WeekReligious freedom is in fact a fundamental human right and I cannot fail to express my hope that it will be upheld throughout the Middle East and the entire world.  The right to religious freedom ‘includes on the individual and collective levels the freedom to follow one’s conscience in religious matters and, at the same time, freedom of worship… (it also includes) the freedom to choose the religion which one judges to be true and to manifest one’s beliefs in public’ (Ecclesia in Medio Oriente, n. 26)… Salaam!” [9]

Francis once again praises a country for its historical “religious significance” to the false religion of Islam.  Antipope Francis then expresses his desire to “reiterate” his “profound respect and esteem for the Muslim community”.  This means that he has “profound esteem” for people who deny the divinity of Jesus Christ and the entire Catholic faith.  Antipope Francis announces his “appreciation” for “promoting a better understanding of the virtues taught by Islam”.  Francis speaks of “the faithful of the different religions”.  Francis then praises “the annual celebration of World Interfaith Harmony Week”.  Francis closes this message of apostasy by promoting the condemned heresy of religious liberty.

Pope Gregory XVI, Inter Praecipuas (# 14), May 8, 1844: “Experience shows that there is no more direct way of alienating the populace from fidelity and obedience to their leaders than through that indifference to religion propagated by the sect members under the name of religious liberty.”

Pope Pius IX, Syllabus of Errors, # 78: “Hence in certain regions of Catholic name, it has been laudably sanctioned by law that men immigrating there be allowed to have public exercises of any form of worship of their own.” – Condemned.

Pope Pius IX, Quanta Cura (#’s 3-6), Dec. 8, 1864, ex cathedra: “From which totally false idea of social government they do not fear to foster that erroneous opinion, most fatal in its effects on the Catholic Church and the salvation of souls, called by Our predecessor, Gregory XVI, an insanity, NAMELY, THAT ‘LIBERTY OF CONSCIENCE AND WORSHIP IS EACH MAN’S PERSONAL RIGHT, WHICH OUGHT TO BE LEGALLY PROCLAIMED AND ASSERTED IN EVERY RIGHTLY CONSTITUTED SOCIETY; and that a right resides in the citizens to an absolute liberty, which should be restrained by no authority whether ecclesiastical or civil, WHEREBY THEY MAY BE ABLE OPENLY AND PUBLICLY TO MANIFEST AND DECLARE ANY OF THEIR IDEAS WHATEVER, EITHER BY WORD OF MOUTH, BY THE PRESS, OR IN ANY OTHER WAY.’  But while they rashly affirm this, they do not understand and note that they are preaching ‘liberty of perdition’…  Therefore, BY OUR APOSTOLIC AUTHORITY, WE REPROBATE, PROSCRIBE, AND CONDEMN ALL THE SINGULAR AND EVIL OPINIONS AND DOCTRINES SPECIALLY MENTIONED IN THIS LETTER, AND WILL AND COMMAND THAT THEY BE THOROUGHLY HELD BY ALL THE CHILDREN OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH AS REPROBATED, PROSCRIBED AND CONDEMNED.” (Denz. 1690; 1699)

Francis’ May 24, 2014 Address to the Palestinian authorities:

“… religious freedom.  Respect for this fundamental human right is, in fact, one of the essential conditions for peace, fraternity and harmony.  It tells the world that it is possible and necessary to build harmony and understanding between different cultures and religions.  It also testifies to the fact that, since the important things we share are so many, it is possible to find a means of serene, ordered and peaceful coexistence, accepting our differences and rejoicing that, as children of the one God, we are all brothers and sisters… Salaam!” [10]

Francis calls for “harmony” with religions that reject Jesus and the Catholic faith.  Francis proclaims that we must go about “accepting our differences”.  That is a clear promotion of religious indifferentism.  Francis says that all the people adhering to these false religions are “children of the one God”.  The Catholic Church teaches that people only become children of God through baptism and the true Catholic faith.

Francis’ May 24, 2014 “Homily” at “Mass” in Amman:

Let us ask the Spirit to prepare our hearts to encounter our brothers and sisters, so that we may overcome our differences rooted in political thinking, language, culture and religion.” [11]

Antipope Francis wants people to overcome differences in religion.  He asks “the Holy Spirit” to prepare hearts to accept false religions and their false beliefs.

Francis’ May 25, 2014 address to Israeli government at their airport in Lod, near Tel Aviv:

“… I have come as a pilgrim to the Holy Land, rich in history and home to the principle events in the origin and growth of the three great monotheistic religions, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.  As such, it is of immense spiritual significance for a great part of humanity.”[12]

Francis once again praises a land because it has witnessed events that started and helped grow false religions like Islam!  Antipope Francis calls this something “of immense spiritual significance”.  He is a complete apostate.

Francis’ May 25, 2014 common declaration with “Orthodox Patriarch” of Constantinople, Bartholomew:

“… only the Holy Spirit can lead us, that of communion in legitimate diversity… The embrace exchanged between Pope Paul VI and Patriarch Athenagoras here in Jerusalem, after many centuries of silence, paved the way for a momentous gesture, the removal from the memory and from the midst of the Church of the acts of mutual excommunication of 1054… Over these years, God, the source of all peace and love, has taught us to regard one another as members of the same Christian familyso that we may confess our faith in the same Gospel of Christ, as received by the Apostles and expressed and transmitted to us by the Ecumenical Councils and the Church Fathers… There is likewise an urgent need for effective and committed cooperation of Christians in order to safeguard everywhere the right to express publicly one’s faith… In this regard, we invite all Christians to promote an authentic dialog with Judaism, Islam and other religious traditionsWe encourage all parties regardless of their religious convictions to continue to work for reconciliationUnited in our intentions, and recalling the example, 50 years ago here in Jerusalem, of Pope Paul VI and Patriarch Athenagoras, we call upon all Christians, together with believers of every religious tradition and all people of good will, to recognize the urgency of the hour that compels us to seek the reconciliation and unity of the human family… ” [13]

Francis speaks of “communion in diversity” with schismatics as a work of the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit only leads people to communion in the true Catholic faith, not in diversity.  That’s another example of Francis teaching that schismatics don’t need conversion.  Francis also clearly teaches that the schismatics are in the Church of Christ by stating that they are part of the “same Christian family”.  That is totally heretical.  Francis then declares that a true pope’s excommunication of the schismatics in 1054 was removed by Antipope Paul VI.

Francis’ May 25, 2014 “ecumenical celebration” with “Patriarch” Bartholomew:

“Here I reiterate the hope already expressed by my predecessors for a continued dialog with our brothers and sisters in Christ, aimed at finding a means of exercising the specific ministry of the Bishop of Rome which, in fidelity to his mission, can be open to a new situation and can be, in the present context, a service of love and of communion acknowledged by all (cf. John Paul II, Ut Unum Sint, n. 95-96)… When Christians of different confessions suffer together, side by side, and assist one another with fraternal charity, there is born an ecumenism of suffering, an ecumenism of blood, which proves particularly powerful not only for those situations in which it occurs, but also, by virtue of the communion of the saints, for the whole Church as well.  Those who kill, persecute Christians out of hatred, do not ask if they are Orthodox or Catholics: they are Christians.  The blood of Christians is the same.” [14]

Francis once again says schismatics are “our brothers and sisters in Christ”.  Antipope Francis then speaks of “finding a means of exercising the specific ministry” of the “Papacy” that “can be open to a new situation”.  This means that Francis is open to dramatic changes to the Catholic Church’s infallible teaching on the Papacy.  Antipope John Paul II had previously promoted that completely heretical idea.  With his statement about the “ecumenism of blood”, Antipope Francis also indicates that he believes there are non-Catholic martyrs.  That is heresy.

Francis’ May 26, 2014 meeting with Muslim community during a visit to the Dome of the Rock.

Francis addressed the “Grand Mufti” of Jerusalem:

“Your Excellency,

Dear Muslim Faithful,

Dear Friends,

I am grateful for the opportunity to meet with you in this sacred place.  I thank you for the courteous invitation you have extended to me and, in particular, I wish to thank the Grand Mufti and the President of the Supreme Muslim Council… I am particularly happy, therefore, to be with you, dear Muslim faithful, brothersDear brothers, dear friends, from this holy place I make a heartfelt plea to all people and to all communities who look to Abraham: may we respect and love one another as brothers and sisters!… May we work together for justice and peace!  Salaam!”[15]

Francis gave this heretical address to the Islamic leader at the Dome of the Rock.  He calls the Islamic Dome of the Rock site “this holy place” and “sacred”!  That is incredible apostasy.  It is actually to worship a false god.  The Dome of the Rock is considered the third holiest site in the false religion of Islam.  Antipope Francis states that Muslims should be called the “faithful”.  The Catholic Church only considers baptized Catholics “faithful”.  Francis’ statement is heresy.  Francis calls Muslims our “brothers and sisters”, but Catholics are not part of the same family with members of false religions.

Francis’ May 26, 2014 address to the chief rabbis of Israel:

Distinguished Chief Rabbis of Israel

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I am particularly pleased to be here with you today… As you know, from the time I was Archbishop of Buenos Aires, I have counted many Jews among my friends.  Today two friends who are rabbis are here with usTogether we organized rewarding occasions of encounter and dialog; with them I also experienced significant moments of sharing on a spiritual level.  In the first months of my pontificate, I was able to receive various organizations and representatives from the Jewish community worldwide… these testify to our mutual desire to know one another better, to listen to each other and to build bonds of true fraternity… Here I would like to mention in particular the growing importance of the dialog between the Chief Rabbinate of Israel and the Holy See’s Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews.  Inspired by the visit of Pope John Paul II to the Holy Land, this dialog was inaugurated in 2002 and is already in its twelfth year.  I would like to think that, in terms of the Jewish tradition of the Bar Mitzvah, it is just coming of age.  I am confident that it will continue and have a bright future in years to come.  We need to do more than simply establish reciprocal and respectful relations on a human level: we are also called, as Christians and Jews, to reflect deeply on the spiritual significance of the bond existing between us.  It is a bond whose origins are from on high… Mutual understanding of our spiritual heritage, appreciation for what we have in common and respect in matters on which we disagree: all these can help to guide us to a closer relationship, an intention which we put in God’s hands.  Together, we can make a great contribution to the cause of peace; together, we can bear witness… Shalom!”[16]

Francis says he experienced “significant moments of sharing on a spiritual level” with rabbis who reject Jesus and the Catholic faith.  Francis talks about a spiritual “bond existing” with Christ-rejecting Jews.  There is no existing bond that Catholics have with people who reject Jesus and the Catholic faith.  Francis declares that Jews “bear witness”.  Jews only “bear witness” to the fact that they have rejected Jesus and embraced a false religion that leads to damnation.

Francis’ May 26, 2014 address to the President of Israel Shimon Peres:

“I am grateful to you, Mr President, for your kind and sage words of greeting and your warm welcome.  I am happy to be able to meet you once again, this time in Jerusalem, the city which preserves the Holy Places dear to the three great religions which worship the God who called Abraham.  The Holy Places are not monuments or museums for tourists, but places where communities of believers daily express their faith and culture, and carry out their works of charity.  Precisely for this reason, their sacred character must be perpetually maintained and protection given not only to the legacy of the past but also to all those who will visit these sites today and to those who will visit them in the future… Peacemaking demands first and foremost respect for the dignity and freedom of every human person, which Jews, Christians and Muslims alike believe to be created by God and destined to eternal life… There is likewise need for a firm rejection of all that is opposed to the cultivation of peace and respectful relations between Jews, Christians and Muslims.  We think, for example, of recourse to violence and terrorism, all forms of discrimination on the basis of race or religion… and signs of intolerance directed against individuals or places of worship, be they Jewish, Christian or Muslim…The presence of these communities and respect for their rights – as for the rights of all other religious groups and minorities – are the guarantee of a healthy pluralism and proof of the vitality of democratic values as they are authentically embodied in the daily life and workings of the State.  Mr President, you know that I pray for you and I know that you are praying for me… Shalom!”[17]

Francis is glad that Jerusalem “preserves the Holy Places dear to the three great religions”.  Concerning those “Holy Places” of false religions, Francis even says that “their sacred character must be perpetually maintained” so that people in the future can use them!  Francis clearly teaches that Islam and Judaism, along with their evil places of worship, are “sacred”!  That is apostasy and idolatry.  Francis calls those false religions “great”.  Francis says their followers worship God and calls them “believers”.  He is glad that people can “daily express their faith” at their “Holy Places”.  Antipope Francis also teaches that “every human person” is “destined to eternal life”.  That is to teach universal salvation.  Francis then denounces any kind of discrimination or “intolerance” of false religions and their evil teachings.  He ends his heretical address to the Christ-rejecting President of Israel by thanking him for praying for him.

Pope Gregory XVI, Mirari Vos (# 13), Aug. 15, 1832: “With the admonition of the apostle that ‘there is one God, one faith, one baptism’ (Eph. 4:5) may those fear who contrive the notion that the safe harbor of salvation is open to persons of any religion whatever.  They should consider the testimony of Christ Himself that ‘those who are not with Christ are against Him,’ (Lk. 11:23) and that they disperse unhappily who do not gather with Him. Therefore, ‘without a doubt, they will perish forever, unless they hold the Catholic faith whole and inviolate’” (Athanasian Creed).

Francis’ May 26, 2014 answers to questions from representatives from the international media:

Question for Francis: “Thank you, Your Holiness.  During your pilgrimage, you spoke at length, and on a number of occasions met with Patriarch Bartholomaios.  We were wondering if you also spoke about concrete means of rapprochement, if you also had occasion to speak about this.  I wonder also if perhaps the Catholic Church could be able to learn something from the Orthodox Churches – I am speaking of married priests, a question which many Catholics in Germany consider urgent.”

Francis: “But the Catholic Church has married priests, no?  Greek Catholics, Coptic Catholics, no?  They exist, in the Eastern rites, there are married priests.  Because celibacy is not a dogma of faith… Since it is not a dogma of faith, the door is always open: at this time we have not spoken about this, as a program, at least not now… With Bartholomaios, this subject was not broached because it is secondary, really, in our relations with the Orthodox… Bartholomaios himself told me so in these days.  To walk together, to pray together, to cooperate on the many things we can do together, to join in helping one another.  For example, with our churchesIn Rome, and in numerous other cities, many Orthodox communities use Catholic churches at certain times as a help in this moving forward… And with Bartholomaios we spoke as brothers.  We like each other, we tell each other about our difficulties in governance.”[18]

Francis talks about his mortally sinful activity of praying with a schismatic leader of a non-Catholic church.  Antipope Francis boasts that schismatics use “Catholic Churches” for their sinful and schismatic masses, etc.  He thinks it’s great.

Antipope Francis’ Heresies from January to March 2014

Francis’ January 11, 2014 Address to “clergy and laity” from the “Orthodox”

churches who are completing their “theological formation” in Rome:

“I am meeting with you at the start of this year, in which we recall the 50th anniversary of the foundation of the Catholic Committee for Cultural Collaboration with the Orthodox Churches and the Eastern Orthodox Churches… The Second Vatican Council had not yet concluded, when Paul VI established the Catholic Committee for Cultural Collaboration… Today as then, with the help of generous benefactors, it allocates scholarships to members of the clergy and lay people in the Orthodox Churches and Eastern Orthodox Churches who wish to complete their theological studies at academic institutions of the Catholic Church, and sustains other joint ecumenical projects… I thank God for giving me this beautiful occasion to meet with you and to tell you that the Bishop of Rome wishes you well.”[1]

The Catholic Church doesn’t give scholarships to schismatics or reward people for “ecumenical projects”, but Francis’ sect does.

Francis’ January 13, 2014 Address to the diplomatic corps:

“Asia, in fact, has a long history of peaceful coexistence between its different civil, ethnic and religious groups.  Such reciprocal respect needs to be encouraged… The Holy See looks, instead, with lively hope to the signs of openness coming from countries of great religious and cultural traditions, with whom it wishes to cooperate in the pursuit of the common good.”[2]

Francis declares countries of various false religions to be “countries of great religious traditions”.  He thus considers false, non-Catholic religions to be good and positive.  He’s a heretic who preaches religious indifferentism.

Francis’ January 22, 2014 “catechesis” at General Audience:

“Every year, an ecumenical group from a region of the world, under the guidance of the World Council of Churches and the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, suggests the theme and prepares reflections for the Week of Prayer… Division among us Christians is a scandal… Let us go forward on this path, praying for the unity of Christians, that this scandal lessens and that it may cease among us.”[3]

Francis says that “an ecumenical group under the guidance of the World Council of Churches… suggests the theme and prepares reflections for the Week of Prayer”.  This is more proof that Francis’ sect is not the Catholic Church.  The Catholic Church would never allow “an ecumenical group”, which is under “the guidance” of a non-Catholic organization, to prepare reflections for a “week of prayer” throughout the Catholic world.  Pope Pius XI taught in Mortalium Animos (# 10), Jan. 6, 1928: “… this Apostolic See has never allowed its subjects to take part in the assemblies of non-Catholics…”

Francis’ January 25, 2014 “homily” concluding ecumenical “Vespers” with “Orthodox Archbishop” Gennadios Zervos and David Moxon, the “Archbishop” of Canterbury’s Representative.  They prayed together before St. Peter’s tomb:

“As we find ourselves in his presence, we realize all the more that we may not regard divisions in the Church as something natural… Our divisions wound Christ’s body, they impair the witness which we are called to give to him before the world… Pope John Paul held up ecumenical dialog as an ordinary and indispensable aspect of the life of each Particular Church.”[4]

Contrary to what Francis says, there are no divisions in the Church of Christ.  Only Catholics are Christians, and the true Catholic faithful are united in the true Church.  The Church remains one and undivided.  This is one of the four marks of the true Catholic Church, but it’s not a mark of Francis’ heretical sect.

Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum (# 4), June 29, 1896: “The Church in respect of its unity belongs to the category of things indivisible by nature…”

Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum (# 5): ” …This unity cannot be broken, nor the one body divided by the separation of its constituent parts.”

Francis’ February 13, 2014 greeting to the American Jewish Committee:

“Next year we will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of the Second Vatican Council Nostra Aetate, which today constitutes for the Church the sure point of reference for relations with our ‘elder brothers’.  From this document, our reflection on the spiritual patrimony which unites us and which is the foundation of our dialog has developed with renewed vigor.  This foundation is theological, and not simply an expression of our desire for reciprocal respect and esteem.  Therefore, it is important that our dialog be always profoundly marked by the awareness of our relationship with God.  In addition to dialog, it is also important to find ways in which Jews and Christians can cooperate in constructing a more just and fraternal world… It is a God given duty, one which reflects his holy will and his justice; it is a true religious obligation.  Finally, in order that our efforts may not be fruitless, it is important that we dedicate ourselves to transmitting to new generations the heritage of our mutual knowledge, esteem and friendship which has, thanks to the commitment of associations like yours, grown over these years.  It is my hope therefore that the study of relations with Judaism may continue to flourish in seminariesand in centers of formation for lay Catholics…  Dear friends, in a few months I will have the joy of visiting Jerusalem… Accompany me, please, with your prayers, so that this pilgrimage may bring forth the fruits of communion, hope and peace.  Shalom!”[5]

Francis says that “Christians” are “united” to Jews who reject Jesus Christ and the Catholic faith.  He proclaims his “esteem” for them, even though they reject the true God, lead people astray and do that which is mortally sinful.  He says “it is important” to transmit “to new generations” esteem for people who adhere to a false religion and reject the Son of God.  He hopes “the study of relations” with people who practice the false religion of Judaism “may continue to flourish in seminaries and in centers of formation for lay Catholics”.  He ends by asking those who reject Christ for their “prayers”.  Antipope Francis is an antichrist.

Francis’ February 13, 2014 Address to “Bishops” of Bulgaria. 

Francis invited them to continue “dialog” with the “Orthodox” church:

“Your communities, dear Brothers, live and work next to those of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church.  Therefore, I ask you to convey my cordial greeting to Patriarch Neofit, who in a few days will celebrate the first anniversary of his canonical election, and I warmly invite you to continue the efforts to promote an ever more intense and fraternal dialog with the Orthodox Church… It is also a sign of what a lasting memory Archbishop Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli left in his nine years working in Bulgaria as the Apostolic Delegate.  When taking his leave of the country, he thus expressed himself: ‘Wherever I happen to live, if someone from Bulgaria comes to my house, during the night, amidst life’s problems, he will always find a lit lamp.  Knock, knock.  He will not be asked if he is Catholic or Orthodox, he is a brother from Bulgaria!  Enter with both arms, open fraternally, a warm friendly heart, will welcome him with joy’ (Christmas Homily, 25 December 1934).”[6]

Patriarch Neophyte is the current head of the Bulgarian “Orthodox” Church.[7]  His “reign” (as leader of the schismatic “Orthodox” church of Bulgaria) began on February 24, 2013.  Antipope Francis sends a greeting in order to “celebrate” the election of the schismatic to a position of leadership in the schismatic sect.  Francis declares the “election” to be a “canonical election”.  This proves that Francis considers the elections of schismatic leaders, to positions of leadership in schismatic non-Catholic sects, to be elections occurring inside the one true Church.  That, of course, is completely heretical.

Francis’ March 5, 2014 Interview granted to Ferruccio De Bortoli,

Editor-in-Chief of the Italian daily newspaper ‘Corriere della Sera’:

Ferruccio De Bortoli: “Were you displeased by the accusations of being a Marxist, especially in America, after the promulgation of ‘Evangelii gaudium’?”

Francis: “Not at all.  I have never shared the Marxist ideology because it is not true; but I have known many great people who professed Marxism.”

Ferruccio De Bortoli: “Why did Cardinal Walter Kasper’s report in the last Consistory (on the abyss between the doctrine on marriage and the family and the real life of many Christians) generate so much division among the cardinals?…”

Francis: “Cardinal Kasper offered a beautiful and profound presentation, which will soon be published in GermanHe addressed five points, the fifth of which is that of second marriages.”

Ferruccio De Bortoli: “A half-century after Paul VI’s ‘Humanae vitae’ can the Church take up again the issue of birth control?  Cardinal Martini, your confrere, held that the moment had already come.”

Francis: “Everything depends on how Humanae vitae is interpreted.  Paul VI himself, towards the end, recommended to confessors much mercy and attention in concrete situations.”

Ferruccio De Bortoli: “Will your upcoming visit to the Holy Land lead to an agreement of inter-communion with the Orthodox, which Paul VI, 50 years ago, almost signed with [Patriarch] Athenagoras?”

Francis: “We are all impatient about achieving ‘signed and sealed’ results.  But the path of unity with the Orthodox above all means walking and working togetherit is important that we walk togetherOrthodox theology is very rich.  And I believe that, at this time, they have great theologiansTheir vision of the Church and collegiality is marvelous.”[8]

Marxism is “a worldview that focuses on a materialist understanding of societal development.”[9]  Francis says Marxism “is not true”, but “great people” profess the evil of Marxism.  So, professing that which is evil can make you “great”.  Francis says that the apostate Walter Kasper’s presentation on marriage at the last “Consistory” was “beautiful and profound”.  Antipope Francis specifically mentions Kasper’s fifth point on “second marriages”.  Kasper, in the fifth point of his presentation on marriage, suggests that “divorced and remarried Catholics can be allowed to receive Holy Communion in individual cases under certain conditions after an appropriate penance”.[10]  So, it would seem that Francis agrees with Kasper’s teaching, which allows the “sacraments” to be given to those living in adultery (a second “marriage”).  Francis also opens the door on the use of artificial contraception for “Catholics”.  Francis is asked: “… can the Church take up again the issue of birth control?”  Francis responds: “Everything depends on how Human vitae is interpreted”.  Francis also says that we must walk and work together with the schismatic “Orthodox”.  He declares the heretical and schismatic “Orthodox” theology to be “very rich”.  He ends by stating that the schismatic “Orthodox” have “great theologians”, and that their vision of the Church is “marvelous”.  He is a total heretic.

Francis’ March 7, 2014 Address to the General Secretary of the “World Council of Churches”.

Francis’ address was given in the presence of a delegation of the “World Council of Churches”:

“Dear Brother,

Dear Friends from the World Council of Churches… This meeting marks one more stage, an important one, in the longstanding and fruitful relationship between the Catholic Church and the World Council of ChurchesThe Bishop of Rome is grateful to you for the work you are doing in support of Christian unity… May the Spirit of the Lord sustain every oneof youand your families, your colleagues at the World Council of Churches and all those who have the cause of Christian unity at heart.  Pray also for me that the Lord may permit me to be a docile instrument of his will and a servant of unity.  May the peace and grace of the Lord accompany all of you.”[11]

Antipope Francis’ sect has a “longstanding and fruitful relationship” with the non-Catholic, notoriously heretical “World Council of Churches”.  Antipope Francis says he is “grateful… for the work” they are doing.  He indicates that the “Spirit of the Lord” is behind their non-Catholic organization.  Francis ends by asking the leaders of the notoriously heretical and schismatic non-Catholic organization to “pray also for me”.

Francis’ March 21, 2014 telegram to “Syriac-Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch and all the East”.

The telegram was sent after Francis learned of the death of leader of the Syrian “Orthodox” church:

“With deep sorrow I have learned of the passing of His Holiness Ignatius Zakka I Iwas, father and chief pastor of the Syrian Orthodox Church of Antioch and all the East, and I hasten to express to you, to the Bishops, clergy and lay faithful, my personal condolences and the prayerful closeness of all Catholics at this time of deeply-felt loss.  The whole Christian world has lost one of its outstanding spiritual leaders, courageous and wise in leading people through very difficult times… His Holiness was a man of dialog and peace with regard to the followers of all religious traditions.  In particular I give heartfelt thanks to God for his constant work to improve relations among Christians and, from the time he attended the Second Vatican Council as an observer, for his extraordinary contribution to strengthening communion between Syrian Orthodox Christians and the Catholic faithfulMay the Almighty receive him into his kingdom and grant him eternal rest, and may the memory of his long and devoted service to the Church live on as a challenge and a stimulus to all.

Francis”[12]

As usual, Francis declares the deceased leader of the heretical and schismatic church “His Holiness”.  Antipope Francis says he was the “chief pastor” of “all the East”.  Identifying the schismatic as a “pastor”, and even a “chief pastor” over an area, clearly indicates that Francis considers the schismatic to have authority in the Church of Christ.  That is heretical, schismatic and blasphemous.  It clearly denies the dogma that heretics such as Ignatius Zakka were not part of the Church of Christ, and that they possess no authority in the Church.

Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum (#15), June 29, 1896 – Bishops Separated from Peter and his Successors Lose All Jurisdiction: “From this it must be clearly understood that Bishops are deprived of the right and power of ruling, if they deliberately secede from Peter and his successors; because, by this secession, they are separated from the foundation on which the whole edifice must rest.  They are therefore outside the edifice itselfand for this very reason they are separated from the fold, whose leader is the Chief Pastor; they are exiled from that Kingdom, the keys of which were given by Christ to Peter alone.”

Francis declares the schismatic leader was one of the world’s “outstanding spiritual leaders”.  Francis says the schismatic was “strengthening communion” between the “Orthodox Christians and the Catholic faithful”.  Pope St. Leo the Great taught that “we are joined in no communion” with non-Catholics like the “Orthodox”.

Pope St. Leo the Great, Sermon 129: “Wherefore, since outside the Catholic Church there is nothing perfect, nothing undefiled… we are in no way likened with those who are divided from the unity of the Body of Christ; we are joined in no communion.”

Pope St. Leo the Great teaches the opposite of Antipope Francis.  Francis then prays that the schismatic leader’s “memory” and “devoted service to the Church live on”.  He ends his schismatic telegram by clearly teaching that the schismatic can be saved outside the Catholic Church.  He thus rejects the defined dogma: Outside the Catholic Church There is No Salvation.  Antipope Francis is a bold schismatic and heretic.

Francis’ March 24, 2014 to “Bishops” of Guinea:

“… I encourage you to deepen your relations with your fellow citizens who are Muslim, by learning to accept one another’s different ways of being, thinking and expression.”[13]

Antipope Francis encourages full acceptance of Islam’s different views and evil doctrines “of being, thinking and expression”.

Francis’ March 31, 2014 Interview with a group of youth

(between the ages of 18 to 27) from Flanders, Belgium:

A girl: “I don’t believe in God, but your actions and your ideals inspire me.  Perhaps you have a message for all of us, for young Christians, for people who don’t believe or have other beliefs or believe in a different way?”

Francis: “We are all brothersBelievers, non-believers, or those of one religious confession or another, Jews, Muslims… we are all brothers.  Man is at the center of history, and in my opinion this is very important: man is at the center.”

(Translator) She (the girl) has posed this question because sometimes it is not easy in Belgium, for example, to speak of one’s own faith… because so many don’t believe, and she said, “I want to pose this question because I also want to have the strength to bear witness”.

Francis: “There it is, now I understand the root of the question.  Bearing witness with simplicity.  Because if you wave your faith as a flag, like during the crusades, and you go out andproselytize, that doesn’t work… I give it with humility, without proselytizing.”[14]

Francis declares that he is a “brother” with those who are Jews, Muslims and atheists.  This is heretical.  Antipope Francis once again condemns attempts to convert non-Catholics to the Catholic faith (proselytizing).  Francis is a heretic, schismatic and an apostate.

Antipope Francis’ Heresies from Interviews in 2013

Francis’ August 19, 2013 Interview with Antonio Spadaro:

Francis: “In Buenos Aires I used to receive letters from homosexual persons who are ‘socially wounded’ because they tell me that they feel like the church has always condemned them.  But the church does not want to do this.  During the return flight from Rio de Janeiro I said that if a homosexual person is of good will and is in search of God, I am no one to judge… 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.  Here we enter into the mystery of the human being.”

Antonio Spadaro: So I ask: “How can we reconcile in harmony Petrine primacy and collegiality?  Which roads are feasible also from an ecumenical perspective?”

Francis: “We must walk together: the people, the bishops and the pope.  Synodality should be lived at various levels.  Maybe it is time to change the methods of the Synod of Bishops, because it seems to me that the current method is not dynamic.  This will also have ecumenical value, especially with our Orthodox brethrenFrom them we can learn more about the meaning of episcopal collegiality and the tradition of synodality.  The joint effort of reflection, looking at how the church was governed in the early centuries, before the breakup between East and West, will bear fruit in due time.  In ecumenical relations it is important not only to know each other better, but also to recognize what the Spirit has sown in the other as a gift for us.  I want to continue the discussion that was begun in 2007 by the joint [Catholic-Orthodox] commission on how to exercise the Petrine primacy, which led to the signing of the Ravenna Document.  We must continue on this path.”

Antonio Spadaro: “I ask how Pope Francis envisions the future unity of the church in light of this response.”

Francis: “We must walk united with our differences: there is no other way to become one.  This is the way of Jesus… We must therefore investigate further the role of women in the church.  We have to work harder to develop a profound theology of the woman.  Only by making this step will it be possible to better reflect on their function within the church.  The feminine genius is needed wherever we make important decisions.  The challenge today is this: to think about the specific place of women also in those places where the authority of the church is exercised for various areas of the church.” [1]

Antipope Francis says that the Church does not want to condemn homosexuals.  However, that is what the Catholic Church does (see 1 Cor. 6:9-10).  Francis does not believe that homosexuals are in mortal sin and on the road to eternal damnation.  That’s what his statement means.  Francis then talks about homosexuals “of good will”.  There is no such thing.  He ends his statement on homosexuality by saying that God doesn’t necessarily reject the homosexual.  Francis then says that “the Catholic Church” can learn from the schismatic “Orthodox” sect about how “the Catholic Church” should be run.  Francis declares that the Holy Spirit has “sown” things in the schismatic churches “as a gift for us”.  This is a blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.  Francis then utters the heresy that we need to “walk united with our differences”.  That clearly means that the schismatics don’t need to be converted to the Catholic faith.  He blasphemously asserts that this is the way of Jesus.  At the end, Francis also seems to indicate that women should be involved “whenever” his sect makes “important decisions”.  That’s contrary to Catholic teaching.

From November 27-29, 2013 the Union of Superiors General of religious institutes for men came to Rome for their 82nd General Assembly.  Francis spoke to the Assembly.  The following words were witnessed by Antonio Spadaro:

Spadaro speaking of Francis’ speech said: “Francis then made explicit reference to Benedict XVI: ‘He said that the Church grows by witness, not by proselytism’… Pope Francis recounted that the previous day he met with the Prior of Taize, Frere Alois: ‘Monks at Taize – among them, Catholic, Calvinist, Lutheran, etc. – all live a real life of brotherhood togetherThey are an impressive apostolic role model for young peopleThe fraternal community has an enormous power to call people together.’” [2]

Antipope Francis states that ecumenical “religious communities” are “an impressive apostolic role model for young people”.  This is completely heretical.  Francis also explicitly says the Church grows “not by proselytism”.  This is the opposite of what Jesus commanded – to go and preach the gospel to every creature.  His statement is very similar to a heretical speech he gave on October 4, 2013.  That speech was not included in the list of Francis’ heresies from October 2013.  But it will be listed now:

Francis’ October 4, 2013 Meeting with “priests and religious of the Diocese” in the Cathedral of San Rufino:

“The pastoral visit that has just ended and the diocesan synod which you are about to celebrate are intense moments of growth for this Church which God has blessed in a special way.  The Church grows, but not through proselytizing: no, no!  The Church grows, but not through proselytizing.”[3]

This statement from Francis is totally heretical.  He is teaching the opposite of what Jesus proclaimed and the Catholic Church has taught for two thousand years.

Francis’ Interview with the founder of ‘La Repubblica’, non-believer Eugenio Scalfari.  The interview was published in ‘La Repubblica’ on October 1, 2013:

Francis: “One of my collaborators who knows you told me that you will try to convert me”.

Scalfari: “It was a joke… My friends think that it will be you who will try to convert me.”

Francis: “Proselytism is downright nonsense; it doesn’t make any sense.”

Scalfari: “Your Holiness, is there only one vision of the Good?  And who determines what it is?”

Francis: “Each one of us has his own vision of the Good and also of Evil.  We have to urge it [the vision] to move towards what one perceives as the Good”.

Scalfari: “Your Holiness, you wrote this in the letter you sent me.  Conscience is autonomous, you said, and each person must obey his own conscience.  I think that this is one of the most courageous statements a Pope has ever made.

Francis: “And now I repeat itEveryone has his own idea of Good and Evil and he has to choose to follow the Good and to fight Evil as he understands it.  This would be enough to improve the world… It is not proselytism.”[4]

Francis declares that trying to convert others to the Catholic faith is “downright nonsense” and that it “doesn’t make any sense”!  Antipope Francis then says that every person has his own idea of good and evil.  Whatever a person thinks is good or evil is what that person should follow, according to him.  Notice, he doesn’t say that you should follow what the Catholic Church says is good, but whatever your conscience determines that to be!  This is complete modernist wickedness, heresy and apostasy.

Francis’ October 11, 2013 Answers to questions from non-believer and ‘La Repubblica’founder Eugenio Scalfari:

“Dear Dr. Scalfari… You asked me, at the end of your first article, what should be said to the Jewish brethren… in the light of the Second Vatican Council, we have rediscovered that the Jewish people remain for us the holy root from which Jesus was born.  I too have cultivated many friendships through the years with my Jewish brothers in Argentina… God has never neglected his faithfulness to the covenant with Israel, and that, through the awful trials of these last centuries, the Jews have preserved their faith in GodAnd for this, we, the Church and the whole human family, can never be sufficiently grateful to them.  Moreover, persevering with faith in the God of the Covenant… what interests you is to understand the attitude of the Church towards those who do not share faith in Jesus.  Above all, you ask if the God of Christians forgives those who do not believe and who do not seek faith.  Given the premise, and this is fundamental, that the mercy of God is limitless for those who turn to him with a sincere and contrite heart, the issue for the unbeliever lies in obeying his or her conscienceThere is sin, even for those who have no faith, when conscience is not followedListening to and obeying conscience means deciding in the face of what is understood to be good or evil.  It is on the basis of this choice that the goodness or evil of our actions is determined.”[5]

Francis declares that all of us should be grateful to Jews for preserving “their faith in God”, even though they reject God and the Catholic faith.  Francis then repeats his heretical teaching that people must simply follow their conscience (not the Catholic faith).  He teaches that “the unbeliever” will be saved simply by “obeying his or her conscience”, and that sin only happens if someone doesn’t follow his or her conscience.  This is apostasy from the Catholic faith.

Francis’ Interview given to the Italian newspaper ‘La Stampa’ published on December 15, 2013:

Question: “This coming January marks the 50th anniversary of Paul VI’s historic visit to the Holy Land.  Will you go there?”

Francis: “I too would like to go there, to meet my brother Bartholomew, the Patriarch of Constantinople, and commemorate this 50th anniversary with him, renewing that embrace which took place between Pope Montini and Athenagoras in Jerusalem in 1964.  We are preparing for this…”

Question: “Some of the passages in the ‘Evangelii Gaudium’ attracted criticism from so-called ‘ultraconservatives’ in the USA.  As a Pope, how does it feel to be called a ‘Marxist’?”

Francis: “… I have met many Marxists in my life who are good people, so I don’t feel offended.”

Question: “You announced a ‘conversion of the papacy’.  Did a concrete path emerge from your encounters with the Orthodox Patriarchs?”

Francis: “John Paul II spoke even more explicitly about a way of exercising primacy that is open to a new situation.  Not just from the point of view of ecumenical relations but also as regards relations with the Curia and local Churches.  Over the course of these first nine months, I have received visits from many Orthodox brothers: Bartholomew, Hilarion, the theologian Zizioulas, the Copt Tawadros.  The latter is a mystic, he would enter the chapel, remove his shoes and go and pray.  I felt like their brother.  They have the apostolic succession; I received them as brother bishopsWe blessed each other; one brother blesses the other, one brother is called Peter and the other Andrew, Mark, Thomas.”

Question: “Is Christian unity a priority for you?”

Francis: “Yes, for me ecumenism is a priorityToday there is an ecumenism of blood.  In some countries, they kill Christians for wearing a cross or carrying a Bible, and before they kill them they do not ask whether they are Anglican, Lutheran, Catholic or OrthodoxOur blood is mixed…  I knew a parish priest in Hamburg who was working for the cause of beatification of a Catholic priest guillotined by the Nazis for teaching children the catechism.  Just after him on the list of condemned individuals was a Lutheran pastor who was killed for the same reason.  Their blood was mixed.  The parish priest told me he had gone to the bishop and said to him: ‘I will continue to work for the cause, but both of their causes, not just the Catholic priests.’  This is what the ecumenism of blood is.  It exists today;”[6]

Antipope Francis says that many Marxists  are “good people”.  In reality, there is no such thing as a Marxist who is a good person.  Francis indicates that he’s open to seeing the papacy exercised in a new way.  He then declares the leaders of schismatic churches to be “brothers”, and says that he was blessed by them.  He declares one of them to be “a mystic”.  He compares the schismatic leaders to apostles of Christ’s church: “one brother is called Peter and the other Andrew, Mark, Thomas”.  Francis also says that ecumenism is a priority and that “there is an ecumenism of blood”.  He teaches that there are non-Catholic martyrs.  That’s a blatant denial of the dogma defined by Pope Eugene IV at the Council of Florence: that no one, even if he sheds blood in the name of Christ, can be saved unless he dies in the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church.  Francis even endorses the idea that a Lutheran could be advanced for ‘beatification’ and ‘canonization’.  Antipope Francis ends by stating that no matter what heretical or schismatic sect you belong to, you’re a part of the true Church of Jesus Christ. He is a complete heretic and apostate.

Antipope Francis’ Heresies from October to December 2013

Francis’ October 4, 2013 Message to the World Council of Churches:

“On the occasion of the Tenth General Assembly of the World Council of Churches, I ask you to convey my cordial greetings and good wishes to all gathered in Busan, and in a particular way to the General Secretary, Dr Olav Fykse Tveit, and the representatives of the Christian communities present.  I assure you of my close pastoral interest in the deliberations of the Assembly and I willingly reaffirm the commitment of the Catholic Church to continuing its long-standing cooperation with the World Council of Churches… For this reason, I trust that the present Assembly will help to consolidate the commitment of all Christ’s followers to intensified prayer and cooperation in the service of the Gospel… ensure a sound and integral education for the young, and guarantee for all the untrammeled exercise of religious liberty… Upon all gathered in Busan I invoke the abundant blessings of Almighty God, source of all life and of every spiritual gift.”[1]

Antipope Francis promotes the non-Catholic “World Council of Churches”.  He says that he has “close pastoral interest in the deliberations of the [Heretical] Assembly”.  He then declares that the Catholic Church has a “long-standing cooperation with the World Council of Churches”.  Only a non-Catholic sect would have a “long standing cooperation” with a heretical non-Catholic sect.  He then indicates that members of the heretical “Council of Churches” are “Christ’s followers”.  He ends his message by asking the heretical “Council of Churches” to “guarantee untrammeled exercise of religious liberty”.  The heretical idea of religious liberty has been specifically condemned by numerous popes.  Nevertheless, Francis wants people to have an “untrammeled” right to publicly promote false religions and heresies.  Untrammeled means “not restricted or hampered”.

Francis’ October 11, 2013 Message on the 70th anniversary of the deportation of the Jews of Rome:

Distinguished Chief Rabbi

Esteemed Members of the Jewish Community of Rome,

I wish to join, through spiritual closeness and prayer, in the commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the deportation of the Jews of Rome.  As we remember those tragic hours of October 1943, it is our duty to keep before our eyes the fate of those who were deported, to understand their fear, their pain and their desperation in order not to forget them, and to keep them alive in our prayers, along with their families, relatives and friends who mourned their loss…”[2]

Francis considers the followers of the false religion of “Judaism” to be “esteemed”.  He then declares his “spiritual closeness” to those who deny Jesus Christ.  He ends by saying that we must not forget souls that died in rejection of Jesus, and therefore were damned.  He says we must “keep them alive in our prayers,” even though Jesus has revealed that such people do not have life.

Francis’ October 11, 2013 Address to representatives of the Jewish community of Rome:

“Dear Friends of the Jewish Community of Rome, Shalom!

I am pleased to welcome you and to have the opportunity to deepen and expand upon the first meeting that was held with several of your representatives on 20 March.  I greet all of you with affection, especially the Chief Rabbi, Dr Riccardo Di Segni… As the Bishop of Rome, I feel particularly close to the life of the city’s Jewish community: I know that with an uninterrupted presence of more than two thousand years, it is Western Europe’s most ancient community.  For many centuries then, the Jewish community and the Church of Rome have lived together in this, our city… Paradoxically, the common tragedy of the war has taught us to journey together… The vast majority were not aware of the need to update the Christian understanding of Judaism and perhaps they knew very little about the life of the Jewish community… Here, too, as I often like to emphasize, the People of God have their own nose and they sense the path that God is asking them to take.  In this case it is the path of friendship, closeness and fraternityI hope to contribute here in Rome, as its Bishop, to this closeness and friendship, as I also had the grace – for indeed it was grace – to do with the Jewish community in Buenos Aires.  Among the many things that can unite us is our common witness to the truth of the ‘Ten Commandments’, the Decalogue… Dear friends, I wish to thank you for your visit, and with you I invoke the protection and blessing of the Most High upon our common journey of friendship and trust.  May he, in his goodness, grant his peace in our day.  Thank you.”[3]

Antipope Francis feels “close” to the Christ-rejecting Jewish community.  He says that he journeys “together” with Jews.  According to him, we need to know more “about the life of the Jewish community”.  He thinks we should learn more about the life of those who reject The Life – Jesus Christ.

Antipope Francis then refers to Jews as “the People of God”.  He says that Jews “sense the path that God is asking them to take”, even though, in reality, they reject Him (1 John 2:23).  He then expresses his “closeness” to those who reject Jesus Christ.  Antipope Francis declares more than once that dealing with those who reject Jesus is “grace”.  Francis says Jews “witness to the truth of the ‘Ten Commandments’”.  Jews reject Jesus Christ, and therefore deny God’s first commandment.  Since their rejection of the Son means that they don’t have the Father, they cannot be witnesses to the truth of the Ten Commandments.  Francis closes off his message of apostasy by asking for blessings for the “common journey” he is currently on with souls who reject Jesus Christ and the Catholic faith.

Francis’ October 21, 2013 address to delegation of the Lutheran World Federation:

Dear Lutheran Brothers and Sisters,

Dear Catholic Brothers,

I warmly welcome you, the members of the Lutheran World Federation and the representatives of the Lutheran-Catholic Commission on Unity.  This meeting follows upon my very cordial and pleasant meeting with you, dear Bishop Younan, and with the Secretary of the Lutheran World Federation, the Reverend Junge, during the inaugural celebration of my ministry as the Bishop of Rome.  It is with a sense of profound gratitude to our Lord Jesus Christ that I think of the many advances made in relations between Lutherans and Catholics in these past decades, not only through theological dialogue, but also through fraternal cooperation in a variety of pastoral settings, and above all, in the commitment to progress in spiritual ecumenism… This year, as a result of a now fifty year old theological dialogue and with a view to the commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, the text of the Lutheran-Catholic Commission on Unity was published, with the significant title: From Conflict to Communion, Lutheran-Catholic Common Commemoration of the Reformation in 2017.  I believe that it is truly important for everyone to confront in dialogue the historical reality of the Reformation, its consequences and the responses it elicited… In light of this decades-long journey and of the many examples of fraternal communion between Lutherans and Catholics which we have witnessed, and encouraged by faith in the grace given to us in the Lord Jesus Christ, I am certain that we will continue our journey of dialogue and of communion…”[4]

Francis promotes ecumenism and a positive “commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation”!  The so-called “Reformation” was one of the greatest evils in history.  It has led to countless souls embracing the heresy of Protestantism and being lost for all eternity.  Antipope Francis then expresses the “communion” he holds with Lutherans.  The true Catholic Church, however, has declared that it is “joined in no communion” with those who reject Catholic teaching.

Pope St. Leo the Great, Sermon 129: “Wherefore, since outside the Catholic Church there is nothing perfect, nothing undefiled… we are in no way likened with those who are divided from the unity of the Body of Christ; we are joined in no communion.”

Francis’ October 24, 2013 address to a delegation of the Simon Wiesenthal Center,

an international Jewish organization:

“Dear Friends,

I welcome this Delegation from the Simon Wiesenthal Center, an international Jewish organization for the defense of human rights.  I am aware that this meeting had been planned some time ago by my predecessor Benedict XVI, whom you asked to visit and who remains in our affectionate thoughts and prayers… Today I wish to emphasize that the problem of intolerance must be confronted in all its forms: whenever any minority is persecuted and marginalized because of its religious convictions or ethnic identity, the wellbeing of society as a whole is endangered and each one of us must feel affected… Above all we must be able to transmit a passion for meeting and coming to know others, promoting an active and responsible involvement of our young people.  It is here that commitment to the service of society and to those most in need acquires a special valueI encourage you to continue to pass on to the young the importance of working together to reject walls and build bridges between our cultures and our faith traditions.  May we go forward with trust, courage and hope!  Shalom!”[5]

Francis teaches that if people who promote wicked “religious convictions” are “marginalized”, the “wellbeing of society as a whole is endangered”!  This is complete apostasy promoted by Antipope Francis.  He then speaks to Christ-rejecting Jews as if they are missionaries for God in the world and solid guides for souls.  He is an abominable heretic.

Francis’ October 30, 2013 appeal at General Audience:

“At the end of the Audience I will greet a Delegation of Iraqi Superintendents, with representatives of various religious groups, which make up the wealth of that land.  They are accompanied by Cardinal Tauran, President of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue.”[6]

Francis says that the representatives of various false religions from Iraq “make up the wealth of that land”.  This is apostasy.

Francis’ November 25, 2013 letter to “Ecumenical Patriarch” on the Feast of St.Andrew:

“To His Holiness Bartholomaios I

Archbishop of Constantinople Ecumenical Patriarch

‘Peace be to the brothers, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ’ (Eph 6:23).

After welcoming with joy the delegation which Your Holiness sent to Rome for the feast of Sts Peter and Paul, it is with the same joy that I convey, through this message entrusted to Cardinal Kurt Koch, President for Promoting Christian Unity, my spiritual closeness on the feast of St Andrew, Peter’s brother and the patron saint of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.  With the heartfelt affection reserved for beloved brothers, I offer my prayerful best wishes to Your Holiness, to the members of the Holy Synod, to the clergy, monks and all the faithful, and – together with my Catholic brothers and sisters – join your own prayer on this festive occasion.  Your Holiness, beloved brother in Christ, this is the first time that I address you on the occasion of the feast of the Apostle Andrew, the first-called.   I take this opportunity to assure you of my intention to pursue fraternal relations between the Church of Rome and the Ecumenical Patriarchate.  It is for me a source of great reassurance to reflect on the depth and the authenticity of our existing bonds, the fruit of a grace-filled journey along which the Lord has guided our Churches since the historic encounter in Jerusalem between Pope Paul VI and Patriarch Athenagoras, the 50th anniversary of which we will celebrate shortly.  God, the source of all peace and love, has taught us throughout these years to regard one another as members of the same familyUnited in Christ, therefore, we already experience the joy of authentic brothers in Christ… Today, as then, Christians of East and West must give common witness so that, strengthened by the Spirit of the risen Christ, they may disseminate the message of salvation to the entire worldIt is with sentiments of profound esteem and warm friendship in Christ that I invoke abundant blessings on Your Holiness and on all the faithful of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, asking the intercession of the Virgin Mother of God and of the holy apostles and martyrs Peter and Andrew.”[7]

Francis once again declares the leader (and followers) of a heretical and schismatic church to be “holy”.  Francis encourages mortal sin by telling “Catholics” to join in prayer with schismatics.  He celebrates “existing bonds” with schismatics.  He says that he is a member “of the same family”.  That clearly means that schismatics are in the Church of Christ.  That is totally heretical.  He says that the Lord guides the schismatic church.  Antipope Francis teaches that schismatics are Christians and that they are “strengthened” by the “Spirit”.  Since God only leads people to the truth – the Catholic truth which the schismatics reject – Francis’ statement is an insult to God.

Contrary to what Francis teaches, the Catholic Church teaches that heretics and schismatics are not Christians.

Francis then proclaims that he is “united” with the schismatic, and that the schismatic leader disseminates “the message of salvation to the entire world”.  Antipope Francis is a schismatic.

Francis’ November 28, 2013 address at meeting with participants of the “Plenary Assembly of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue”:

“The Catholic Church is aware of the value of promoting friendship and respect among men and women of different religious traditions… The theme chosen for your meeting, ‘Members of different religious traditions in society’, is therefore particularly relevant… Throughout history we have seen the tragedy of narrow-mindedness.  The recognition of the fundamental right of religious freedom in all of its dimensions is unavoidable.  The Magisterium of the Church has spoken about this with great commitment in recent decades.  We are convinced that world peace passes by this route.”[8]

Francis once again promotes “respect” for false religions that lead souls to everlasting damnation.  Once again, he also promotes the condemned heresy of religious liberty.  Francis says that “the Magisterium” has taught religious freedom “with great commitment”.  However, the true Catholic Magisterium has condemned the very heresy which Antipope Francis claims is the teaching of the Magisterium.  Francis ends his heretical address by declaring that world peace comes from guaranteeing “the right” to promote false beliefs about God.

Francis’ November 30, 2013 address to Greek-Melkite community:

“In particular, I urge that there be mutual respect between different religious confessions, in order to ensure for all a future based on the inalienable rights of the person, including religious freedom.  For centuries, your Church has understood how to live peacefully with other religions and is called to fulfill a role of brotherhood in the Middle East… On this Feast of the Apostle St Andrew, brother of St Peter, my thoughts turn to His Holiness Bartholomaios, Patriarch of Constantinople, and to the Orthodox Churches, so many Sister ChurchesLet us pray to the Lord that he help us to proceed on the path of ecumenism, in fidelity to the principles of the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council.  May he help you always collaborators to be in evangelization, cultivating an ecumenical and interreligious sensitivity.”[9]

Francis urges respect for non-Catholic “religious confessions”.  He says that the Catholic Church needs to live in “brotherhood” with “other religions”.  He then identifies heretical and schismatic churches as “Sister Churches”.  Antipope Francis proclaims: “let us pray to the Lord” to “proceed on the path of ecumenism” and cultivate “an ecumenical and interreligious sensitivity”.  What an apostate!

Francis’ December 6, 2013 telegram upon learning of the death of Nelson Mandela:

“It was with sadness that I learned of the death of former President Nelson Mandela, and I send prayerful condolences to all the Mandela family, to the members of the Government and to all the people of South Africa.  In commending the soul of the deceased to the infinite mercy of Almighty God, I ask the Lord to console and strengthen all who mourn his loss… I pray that the late President’s example will inspire generations of South Africans…”[10]

Francis prays for the deceased non-Catholic and communist Nelson Mandela.  Antipope Francis prays that the communist’s “example” will “inspire generations”.

Francis’ December 25, 2013 Urbi et Orbi Christmas message:

We have seen how powerful prayer is!  And I am happy today too, that the followers of different religious confessions are joining us in our prayer for peace in Syria.  Let us never lose the courage of prayer!”[11]

Francis proclaims how happy he is that people who reject the true God are joining him in prayer.  According to Francis, the prayers offered by the followers of false religions are “powerful”.  That’s what he proclaims to the city and to the world.  Antipope Francis is an apostate.

Antipope Francis’ Heresies from July to September 2013

Francis’ July 10, 2013 Message to Muslims for the end of Ramadan:

To Muslims throughout the World

It gives me great pleasure to greet you as you celebrate ‘Id al-Fitr’, so concluding this month of Ramadan, dedicated mainly to fasting, prayer and almsgiving.  It is a tradition by now that, on this occasion, the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue sends you a message of good wishes, together with a proposed theme for common reflection.  This year, the first of my Pontificate, I have decided to sign this traditional message myself and to send it to you, dear friends, as an expression of esteem and friendship for all Muslims, especially those who are religious leaders… Turning to mutual respect in interreligious relations, especially between Christians and Muslims, we are called to respect the religion of the other, its teachings, its symbols, its values.  Particular respect is due to religious leaders and to places of worship… It is clear that, when we show respect for the religion of our neighbors or when we offer them our good wishes on the occasion of a religious celebration, we simply seek to share their joy…  Regarding the education of Muslim and Christian youth, we have to bring up our young people to think and speak respectfully of other religions and their followers, and to avoid ridiculing or denigrating their convictions and practices… With these sentiments, I reiterate my hope that all Christians and Muslims may be true promoters of mutual respect and friendship, in particular through education.  Finally, I send you my prayerful good wishes, that your lives may glorify the Almighty and give joy to those around you.  Happy Feast to you all!

From the Vatican, 10 July 2013

Franciscus”[1]

Eid al-Fitr is an Islamic “feast day” instituted by the false prophet Muhammad.  Eid al-Fitr is “an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of Ramadan”.[2]  It gives Francis “great pleasure” to see souls embracing and practicing the false religion of Islam!  He mentions that every year the Vatican sends out “a message of good wishes” to Muslims.  Typically, the message is not signed personally by the Antipope, but by one of his representatives.  This year, however, Francis signed it himself as “an expression of esteem” for “all Muslims, especially those who are religious leaders”.  Antipope Francis declares that he esteems all Muslims – “especially those who are religious leaders”!  This is apostasy from the Catholic faith.  Francis then says: “we are called to respect the religion of the other, its teachings, its symbols, its values”.  Francis thus teaches that we are to respect the evil and false doctrines of non-Catholic religions.  Francis’ words necessarily mean that we must respect the Islamic teaching that Jesus Christ is not God and that there is no Holy Trinity.  Francis then says that “particular respect” is due to “leaders” of false religions and their “places of worship”!  So, according to him, we should respect temples of idolatry and every other place where false worship is conducted.  He also says we should “offer them our good wishes on the occasion of a religious celebration” to “share their joy”.  Antipope Francis says that we need to educate “Christian youth” to “think and speak respectfully of other religions”.  Francis caps off his message of complete apostasy by telling Muslims, “Happy Feast to you all!”

Francis’ August 11, 2013 Angelus reflection:

“I would like to greet the Muslims of the whole world, our brothers and sisters, who recently celebrated the end of the month of Ramadan, dedicated in a special way to fasting, prayer and almsgiving.  As I wrote in my message for this occasion, I hope that all Christians and Muslims will work to promote mutual respect especially through the education of the new generations.”[3]

This is just another message from Antipope Francis respecting the false religion of Islam.

Francis’ September 5, 2013 address to the Malankara “Orthodox” Syrian Church:

Your Holiness,

Dear Brothers in Christ,

It is a joy for me to meet Your Holiness and the distinguished delegation of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church… With deep affection I welcome Your Holiness and the members of your delegation and I ask you to convey my cordial greetings to the Bishops, clergy and faithful of the Malankara Orthodox Church… a concrete path of dialogue with the institution of a mixed commission, which brought to birth the agreement of 1990, on the day of Pentecost, a commission which continues its important work and which has brought us to significant steps on themes such as the common use of buildings of worship and cemeteries, the mutual concession of spiritual and even liturgical resources in specific pastoral situations, and the necessity to identify new forms of collaboration when faced with growing social and religious challenges.”[4]

As usual, Francis declares the leader of a schismatic “orthodox” church to be “Your Holiness” and the schismatic followers the “faithful”.  Antipope Francis praises the “significant steps” that have occurred with the “Orthodox” church.  He says that the Vatican II sect is sharing churches and cemeteries with the schismatic “Orthodox”, among other things.  Antipope Francis is a schismatic.

Francis’ September 8, 2013 appeal after Angelus:

I would like to thank all those who in different ways took part in the Vigil of Prayer and Fasting yesterday evening.  I thank all the people who joined in, adding the offering of their sufferings.  I thank the civil authorities, as well as the members of other Christian communities and of other religions, and the men and women of good will who on this occasion lived moments of prayer, of fasting and of reflection.”[5]

Here, Antipope Francis thanks members of false religions for their prayers and fasting.

Francis’ September 27, 2013 address to participants in the international conference on catechesis:

“Remember what Benedict XVI said: ‘The Church does not grow by proselytizing…’”[6]

Proselytizing is attempting to convert people to the Catholic faith.  Francis repeats what the heretic Benedict XVI taught: that “the Church” should not attempt to convert others to the Catholic faith.

Francis’ September 25, 2013 catechesis at General Audience:

“It is we who create wounds!  And if we look at the divisions that still exist among Christians, Catholics, Orthodox, Protestants… we are aware of the effort required to make this unity fully visible.”[7]

Francis’ statement denies Catholic teaching on the unity of the Church.  The Christian (Catholic) Church is one and undivided.  Francis’ “Christian” communion, on the other hand, is divided.  That’s because it’s not the Christian Church, and it includes heretics and schismatics of various kinds.

Pope Pius XI encyclical Mortalium Animos 7:  “And here it seems opportune to expound and to refute a certain false opinion, on which this whole question, as well as that complex movement by which non-Catholics seek to bring about the union of the Christian churches depends. For authors who favor this view are accustomed, times almost without number, to bring forward these words of Christ: ‘That they all may be one…. And there shall be one fold and one shepherd,’ with this signification however: that Christ Jesus merely expressed a desire and prayer, which still lacks its fulfillment. For they are of the opinion that the unity of faith and government, which is a note of the one true Church of Christ, has hardly up to the present time existed, and does not to-day exist.” [8]

Pope Pius XI encyclical Mortalium Animos 9: “Everyone knows that John himself, the Apostle of love, who seems to reveal in his Gospel the secrets of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and who never ceased to impress on the memories of his followers the new commandment ‘Love one another,’ altogether forbade any intercourse with those who professed a mutilated and corrupt version of Christ’s teaching: ‘If any man come to you and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into the house nor say to him: God speed you.’  For which reason, since charity is based on a complete and sincere faith, the disciples of Christ must be united principally by the bond of one faith.  Who then can conceive a Christian Federation, the members of which retain each his own opinions and private judgment, even in matters which concern the object of faith, even though they be repugnant to the opinions of the rest?  And in what manner, We ask, can men who follow contrary opinions, belong to one and the same Federation of the faithful?”

Francis’ September 30, 2013 address at audience granted to “religious and ecclesial communities”:

“Your Beatitudes,

Your Eminences,

Distinguished Representatives of the

Churches, of Ecclesial Communities and of the great Religions,

I wish to extend my heartfelt gratitude to you for making this visit.  It gives me great joy!  You are experiencing intense days at a meeting which gathers together people of different religions with the meaningful and challenging theme: ‘The courage of hope’…

I wish to extend my thanks to the Community of Saint’ Egidio for having perseveringly followed the road laid out at Blessed John Paul II’s historic meeting in Assisi: to keep the light of hope burning, by praying and working for peace.  It took place in 1986, in a world still marked by the division of opposing blocs.  It was within that context that the Pope invited religious leaders to pray for peace: it was no longer a question of one against the other, but of one standing next to the otherIt should not and could not have remained an isolated event.  You have continued on this path and have increased its momentum by involving significant personalities from all religions in the dialogue, as well as secular and humanist representatives.  Precisely in recent months, we have felt that the world needs the ‘spirit’ which animated that historic encounter

As leaders of different religions there is much we can do.  Peace is the responsibility of everyone.  To pray for peace, to work for peace!  A religious leader is always a man or woman of peace, for the commandment of peace is inscribed in the depths of the religious traditions that we represent.

As religious leaders, we are called to be true ‘people of dialogue’, to cooperate in building peace not as intermediaries but as authentic mediators.”[9]

Antipope Francis declares false religions to be “great religions”.  He also praises the apostate interreligious “prayer meeting” at Assisi and declares it to be “the light of hope”.  Francis says there should be more Assisi-like meetings, and that “the world needs the” demonic “spirit which animated” it.  Pope Pius XI declared that those who support gatherings like Assisi have abandoned the Catholic religion.

Antipope Francis also says that we should not stand against non-Catholic (and therefore false) religions, but stand “one” with them.  He also declares the leaders of false religions to be “authentic mediators”.  Francis preaches religious indifferentism and apostasy.

Pope Pius XI encyclical Mortalium Animos 2: “For which reason conventions, meetings and addresses are frequently arranged by these persons, at which a large number of listeners are present, and at which all without distinction are invited to join in the discussion, both infidels of every kind, and Christians, even those who have unhappily fallen away from Christ or who with obstinacy and pertinacity deny His divine nature and mission. Certainly such attempts can nowise be approved by Catholics, founded as they are on that false opinion which considers all religions to be more or less good and praiseworthyNot only are those who hold this opinion in error and deceived, but also in distorting the idea of true religion they reject itfrom which it clearly follows that one who supports those who hold these theories and attempt to realize them, is altogether abandoning the divinely revealed religion.”

Pope Pius XI encyclical Mortalium Animos 10: “So, Venerable Brethren, it is clear why this Apostolic See has never allowed its subjects to take part in the assemblies of non-Catholics: for the union of Christians can only be promoted by promoting the return to the one true Church of Christ of those who are separated from it…”

Pope Pius XI encyclical Mortalium Animos 11: “The Catholic Church is alone in keeping the true worship. This is the fount of truth, this the house of Faith, this the temple of God: if any man enter not here, or if any man go forth from it, he is a stranger to the hope of life and salvation.”

Antipope Francis’ Heresies from March to June 2013

Francis’ March 17, 2013 Angelus address:

“In the past few days I have been reading a book by a Cardinal – Cardinal Kasper, a clever theologian, a good theologian – on mercy.”[1]

Francis praises the apostate “Cardinal” Walter Kasper as a “good theologian”.  Kasper believes that “remarried” persons should be allowed to receive Holy Communion.  He also does not condemn the use of artificial contraception.  Like Francis, Kasper also rejects the necessity for non-Catholics to convert.  He even admits that Vatican II abandoned traditional Catholic dogma on that point.  Many in the Vatican II “Church” call Kasper, “The Pope’s Theologian”.

Francis’ March 25, 2013 Telegram to Riccardo Di Segni, Chief Rabbi of the Jewish Community in Rome:

“A few days after our meeting, and with renewed gratitude to you for having desired to honor the celebration of the beginning of my ministry with your presence and that of other distinguished members of the Jewish Community, I take great pleasure in extending my warmest best wishes to you and Rome’s entire Jewish community on the occasion of the Great Feast of PesachMay the Almighty, who freed His people from slavery in Egypt to guide them to the Promised Land, continue to deliver you from all evil and to accompany you with his blessing.  I ask you to pray for me while I likewise assure you of my prayers for you, confident that we can deepen our ties of mutual esteem and friendship. ”[2]

Francis gives his best wishes to the rabbi and to Jews as they celebrate their Christ-less “feast”.  Antipope Francis then asks God to “continue to deliver you from all evil”.  This means (according to Francis) that these Jews who reject Jesus Christ and the entire Catholic faith have already been delivered from evil.  Jesus Christ is the only one who can deliver us from evil.  Colossians 1:14-15: “Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of the Son of his love, in whom we have redemption through his blood, the remission of sins.”  Francis denies the Christian faith.  Francis closes his heretical telegram by telling Christ-rejecting Jews that he esteems them.  Francis is an apostate.

Francis’ March 18, 2013 message to Justin Welby “Archbishop” of Canterbury:

“I thank you for the kind words contained in your message to me at my election, and I wish in turn to offer my greetings and best wishes on the occasion of your Enthronement at Canterbury Cathedral… Please be assured of my prayers as you take up your new responsibilities, and I ask you to pray for me…”[3]

Justin Welby claims to be the “Archbishop” of Canterbury.  He is the current leader of the heretical and schismatic “Church of England”.  But Antipope Francis gives this leader of a heretical sect “best wishes” on the occasion of his installation as head of a non-Catholic church.  Francis tells Welby: “pray for me”.  Besides his numerous heretical and schismatic positions, Arch-heretic Welby supports female “bishops”. Welby has also stated: “I know I need to listen very attentively to the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender) communities…”[4]

Francis’ March 20, 2013 address to representatives of other “churches” and “religions”:

“It is a source of particular joy for me to meet today with you, the delegates of the Orthodox Churches, of the Oriental Orthodox Churches and of the Ecclesial Communities of the West… Yesterday morning, during Holy Mass, through you I felt the spiritual presence of the communities which you represent… I also greet and cordially thank all of you, dear friends who are followers of other religious traditions; first Muslims, who worship God as one, living and merciful, and invoke him in prayer, and all of you, I greatly appreciate your presence: in it, I see a tangible sign of a will to grow in mutual esteem… Dear friends, once again I thank you for your presence…”[5]

Francis praises the schismatic “Orthodox” communities by saying he felt their “spiritual presence”.  He then says that he esteems Muslims and that they invoke God in prayer.  However, since Muslims reject the Holy Trinity, they do not invoke God.

Francis’ May 10, 2013 greeting to head of the Coptic “Orthodox” church of Egypt:

“…I welcome Your Holiness and the distinguished members of your delegation… Today’s visit strengthens the bonds of friendship and brotherhood that already exist between the See of Peter and the See of Mark, heir to an inestimable heritage of martyrs, theologians, holy monks and faithful disciples of Christ… we are glad to recognize that we are united by one Baptism, of which our common prayer is a special expression… The institution of a ‘National Council of Christian Churches’ which you strongly desired, represents an important sign of the will of all believers in Christ… Your Holiness, in sincerely assuring you of my prayers that the whole flock entrusted to your pastoral care may be ever faithful to the Lord’s call, I invoke the protection of both St Peter and St Mark…”[6]

Francis calls the leader of the schismatic “Orthodox” church “Holiness”.  Francis says the schismatics have an “inestimable heritage of martyrs” and “holy monks”.  He also states that schismatics are “faithful disciples of Christ”.  Francis then praises the building up of an “institution” of non-Catholic churches.  Antipope Francis closes off his heretical greeting by stating that God has entrusted His flock to a schismatic.

Francis’ June 8, 2013 Discourse to the president of Italy:

“In the world today freedom of religion is often talked about rather than put into practice… One and all are duty bound to defend religious freedom and to promote it for everyone.  The shared protection of this moral good is also a guarantee of the entire community’s growth and development.”[7]

Francis says “all are duty bound” to promote religious freedom for everyone.  He says that protecting everyone’s “right” to promote false beliefs about God will be “a guarantee of the entire community’s growth and development.”  Francis declares that the propagation of various false religions is a “moral good”.  This heretical notion has been condemned by numerous popes as completely contrary to the teaching of the Catholic Church.

Francis’ June 14, 2013 Address to “the Archbishop of Canterbury” Justin Welby:

Your Grace… pleased and honored as we are… to welcome you ‘not as a guest or a stranger, but as a fellow citizen of the Saints and the Family of God’ (cf. Eph 2:19-20).  I know that during Your Grace’s installation in Canterbury Cathedral you remembered in prayer the new Bishop of Rome.  I am deeply grateful to you – and since we began our respective ministries within days of each other, I think we will always have a particular reason to support one another in prayer… This journey has been brought about both via theological dialogue, through the work of the Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission, and via the growth of cordial relations at every level through shared daily lives in a spirit of profound mutual respect and sincere cooperation… I am sure this will enable the spiritual, liturgical and pastoral traditions that form the Anglican patrimony to be better known in the Catholic world.”[8]

Francis repeatedly calls the heretical leader of the non-Catholic church “Your Grace”.  To be a leader of a heretical “Church” is a “Grace” according to Francis.  Francis declares Welby to be “a fellow citizen of the Saints and the Family of God”.  Francis is therefore stating emphatically that Welby is a member of the Church of Christ.  Antipope Francis then says he is “deeply grateful” that the heretical leader remembered him in his prayers.  Francis then says he is happy that the spiritual and liturgical “traditions” of the heretical and schismatic Anglican sect will become better known in the “Catholic” world.  He is a complete heretic.

Francis’ June 19, 2013 Catechesis at General Audience:

So much damage to the Church comes from division among Christians, from biases, from narrow interests.  Division among us, but also division among communities: Evangelical Christians, Orthodox Christians, Catholic Christians, why are we divided?  We must try to bring about unity.  I will tell you something: today, before leaving home, I spent 40 minutes, more or less, half an hour, with an evangelical pastor and we prayed together and sought unity.  Because we have to pray together as Catholics and also with other Christians…”[9]

When heretics deny Catholic teaching and leave the Church, they do not injure or damage the Church.  They simply leave the Church of Christ.

Pope Leo XIII: “The Church in respect of its unity belongs to the category of things indivisible by nature, though heretics try to divide it into many parts.” (Satis Cognitum #4, June 29, 1896)

Non-Catholics are not part of the Church, and therefore they are not Christians.  So, there is no division among real Christians (Catholics).  Antipope Francis then mentions that he spent around a half an hour praying with an “evangelical pastor”.  It is absolutely forbidden, under pain of mortal sin, to pray with a leader of a non-Catholic church.

Francis’ June 24, 2013 Address to the International Jewish Committee on Interreligious Consultations:

“Dear Brothers and Sisters, Shalom… During my time as Archbishop of Buenos Aires – as the President mentioned – I had the joy of maintaining relations of sincere friendship with leaders of the Jewish world.  We talked often of our respective religious identities, the image of man found in the Scriptures, and how to keep an awareness of God alive in a world now secularized in many ways… we welcomed each other, and this helped all of us grow as people and as believersHumanity needs our joint witness…  With this word, Peace – Shalom – I conclude my words, asking for your prayers and assuring you of my own.  Thank you.”[10]

Francis claims Christ-rejecting Jews “keep an awareness of God alive”.  He says Jews help people “grow” as “believers”.  To call Jews who reject Christ, and therefore reject the Father, “believers” is heresy and apostasy.  Francis then declares that Jews act as witnesses to humanity for God.  At the end of his heretical address, he asks the rejecters of Jesus Christ for their “prayers”.

Francis’ June 28, 2013 Discourse to the “Ecumenical” Patriarchate of Constantinople, led by Eastern “Orthodox Metropolitan” Ioannis (Zizioulas) of Pergamon:

“I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to His Holiness Bartholomaios I and to the Holy Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, who this year have chosen once again to send a high ranking delegation. I ask you, finally, to pray for me – I need your prayersand to ask your people to pray for me…”[11]

Francis calls the schismatic “Orthodox” synod “holy”.  Antipope Francis then asks the schismatic delegation and their schismatic followers to pray for him.  Francis exclaims, “I need your prayers” to the schismatics.
