December 17, 2015, Public Statement by “the Holy See” from “the Meeting of the Bilateral Commission of the Delegations of the Chief Rabbinate of Israel and the Holy See’s Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews”:
“The Jewish delegation took the opportunity to express its appreciation regarding the new document issued by the Pontifical Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews on the occasion of the aforementioned anniversary. This document written for the Catholic faithful as a theological reflection on the relationship of the Church to the Jewish People and titled ‘The gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable’ (cf. Romans 11: 29), affirms the eternal validity of the Divine Covenant with the Jewish People who are called to be loyal to Torah. Accordingly the document affirms the integrity of the Jewish faith and understanding of Scripture and that there is no intent on the part of the Church to convert Jews. The text also refers with esteem to the meetings and statements of this bilateral committee of the Pontifical Commission with the Chief Rabbinate of Israel and urges greater cooperation between the Church and the Jewish People for a more just and peaceful world…”
By approving this document, Antipope Francis affirms the apostasy of the Vatican II sect: “that there is no intent on the part of the [Vatican II] Church to convert Jews”. This document alone is all someone should need to see to recognize that Antipope Francis and his Vatican II sect are not Catholic.
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’ January 17, 2016, speech greeting the Jewish community in the Synagogue in Rome:
“Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I am happy to be here today with you in this Great Synagogue… Our relationship is very close to my heart. Back in Buenos Aires I used to go to the synagogues and meet with the communities gathered there. I would follow the Jewish festivals and commemorations and give thanks to the Lord, who gives us life and who accompanies us over the course of history. Over time, a spiritual bond has been formed, fostering an authentic relationship of friendship and inspiring a common commitment. In interreligious dialogue it is fundamental that we encounter each other as brothers and sisters before our Creator and that we praise him; and that we respect and appreciate each other, and try to cooperate. And in the Jewish-Christian dialogue there is a unique and particular bond, by virtue of the Jewish roots of Christianity: Jews and Christians must therefore consider themselves brothers, united in the same God and by a rich common spiritual patrimony (cf. Declaration Nostra Aetate, n. 4), on which to build and to continue building the future.
With this visit I am following in the footsteps of my Predecessors. Pope John Paul II came here 30 years ago, on 13 April 1986; and Pope Benedict XVI was among you six years ago. John Paul II, on that occasion, coined the beautiful expression ‘elder brothers’, and indeed you are our elder brothers and sisters in the faith. We all belong to a single family, the family of God, who accompanies us and protects us as his people. Together, as Jews and as Catholics, we are called to take up our responsibilities for this city, bearing our contribution, especially spiritual… I hope that our closeness, mutual understanding and the mutual esteem between our two faith communities may continue to grow. That is why it is significant that I am among you precisely today, 17 January, when the Conference of Italian Bishops is celebrating the ‘Day of Dialogue between Catholics and Jews’… The inseparable bond that unites Christians and Jews is theologically clear. Christians, in order to understand themselves, cannot fail to refer to their Jewish roots… The violence of man toward man contradicts every religion worthy of this name, and in particular the three great monotheistic religions… Every human being, as a creature of God, is our brother or sister, independent of his or her origin or religious practice. Dear elder brothers and sisters, we should be truly grateful for everything that it has been possible to achieve over the last 50 years, because we have matured and our mutual understanding, trust and friendship have deepened. Let us pray together to the Lord that he lead us on our journey toward a good future, a better future. God has a project of salvation for us…”
Francis says he is happy to be back in the synagogue – a building dedicated to a false religion that rejects Catholicism and Jesus Christ. The apostate Francis says that in Buenos Aires he would visit synagogues and “would follow the Jewish festivals and commemorations and give thanks to the Lord”. At the Council of Florence, in the bull Cantate Domino, Pope Eugene IV declared that Jews and those who religiously follow the Old Law will be condemned. Francis, however, is teaching that it is permissible to practice the Old Law and Judaism. That is bold heresy against the Council of Florence. Francis then speaks of a “spiritual bond” with Christ-rejecting Jews and how they “praise” God. Francis says he appreciates Jews who reject Jesus and says they are “united in the same God” with “Catholics”, even though Jews reject the Trinity and that Jesus is God. Francis also says that Jews are our “elder brothers and sisters in the faith”. So, Christianity and “Judaism” are the same faith, according to the apostate antipope. Francis then says that Christ-rejecting Jews have a responsibility to protect the spiritual welfare of the city of Rome! The apostate Francis hopes the “closeness” and “esteem” he has for these Christ rejecters “may continue to grow”. Francis then says there is an “inseparable bond” uniting Jews and “Catholics”, and that it is “theologically clear”. Francis closes by asking for joint prayer with the members of this false religion, and he teaches that salvation is available for those who live and will die rejecting Jesus Christ. Francis completely rejects Catholic teaching and the words of the Bible.
1 John 2:23- “Whosoever denies the Son does not have the Father.”
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.”
