On March 13, 2013 Jorge Bergoglio from Argentina was elected antipope Francis of the Vatican II sect.
This brief overview will prove, from Francis’ words and actions, that he is a heretic. We will be quoting from the Vatican’s official newspaper L’ Osservatore Romano and two of Francis’ books that document his beliefs on various topics – Conversations with Jorge Bergoglio and On Heaven and Earth.
Francis’ Heresies on the Jews
Jews reject that Jesus Christ is God, but Jesus says in John 8:24: “For if you believe not that I am he, you shall die in your sin.”
The Catholic Church infallibly teaches that you must believe in Jesus Christ and have the Catholic faith for salvation. It teaches that it’s a mortal sin to observe or practice Judaism. But Francis endorses the false religion of Judaism and prays in Jewish synagogues:
Francis, Conversations With Jorge Bergoglio, p. 208: “Not long ago I was in a synagogue taking part in a ceremony. I prayed a lot and, while praying, I heard a phrase from one of the books of wisdom that had slipped my mind: ‘Lord, may I bear mockery in silence.’ It gave me much peace and joy.”
Francis, On Heaven and Earth, p. 188: “The Church officially recognizes that the People of Israel continue to be the Chosen People. Nowhere does it say: ‘You lost the game, now it is our turn.’ It is a recognition of the People of Israel.”
This clearly means that Francis holds that people who reject Jesus Christ are the chosen people in God’s sight. This is a blasphemy against God.
Francis, On Heaven and Earth, p. 37: “There also exists the ministerial intercession of a rabbi or a priest who prays or asks for the health of another and it is granted. What gives credibility to a person who is healing according to the law of God is simplicity, humility and the absence of a spectacle.”
So Francis believes that Jewish rabbis have a true spiritual ministry of intercession “according to the law of God”.
Francis, On Heaven and Earth, p. 220: Francis says to Jewish Rabbi Skorka: “I did not forget how you invited me twice to pray and to speak in the synagogue, and I invited you to speak to my seminarians about values.”
In the cathedral in Buenos Aires, Argentina on April 15, 1998 Francis held an interreligious service to honor deceased Jews. During this meeting, Francis said to the Jews: “we are all brothers, because we have the seal of God in our hearts”. The seal of God is baptism – which Jews reject.
In September 2004, Francis participated in a Jewish service inside a synagogue. Antipope Francis participated in a Jewish service inside a Synagogue in 2004and on Nov. 9, 2005 Francis had another service in a Basilica commemorating deceased Jews. This included Francis lighting a candle in honor of them.
In 2007, Francis attended Jewish Rosh Hashanah services at a synagogue in Argentina. He told the Jewish congregation during his visit that he went to the synagogue to examine his heart, “like a pilgrim, together with you, my elder brothers”. http://www.jta.org/news/article/2013/03/13/3121966/new-pope-francis-i-is-argentinian-cardinal-jorge-maria-bergoglio
On July 7, 2008 Francis endorsed Rabbi Sergio Bergman’s books. Francis called him a “believer” and said: “his job is the one of a rabbi who as our master helps us”.
On June 7, 2010: Francis visited the Jewish Center in Argentina and called Jews “our elder brothers” and “the chosen people of God”. He also prayed in front of list of deceased Jews in order to honor them. June 7, 2010: Antipope Francis visited Jewish Center and calls them the “chosen people”
On October 11, 2012 Francis gave Rabbi Abraham Skorka – who is a well-known supporter of homosexuality – an honorary degree at a “Catholic” university. After the rabbi received the degree, he said: “We are waiting for the Messiah, but in order for him to come we have to prepare the land…” So the Rabbi explicitly rejected the Messiah Jesus Christ right in front of Francis.
On November 12, 2012 Francis was the keynote speaker and took active part in another Jewish religious ceremony in the cathedral in Buenos Aires, Argentina. This Jewish religious ceremony was again dedicated to honor deceased Jews. The final candle commemorating deceased Jews was jointly lit by a rabbi and Francis. Under Francis’ direction, memorial services honoring deceased Jews have been celebrated in so-called Catholic churches in Argentina every year since 1998. http://eponymousflower.blogspot.com/2013/03/bnai-brith-memorial-liturgy-in.html
To take part in a Jewish religious ceremony for deceased Jews is complete apostasy from the Catholic faith.
On December 14, 2012, just a few months before his election as antipope – Francis celebrated Hanukkah with Jews in Argentina which included Francis lighting a menorah.
On March 13, 2013 just a few hours after Francis was elected Antipope, he sent out a greeting letter to the Christ-rejecting Chief Rabbi of Rome. Antipope Francis Writes Rome’s Chief Rabbi
On March 25, 2013 Francis sent a telegram to Rome’s chief rabbi for Passover. Francis said that he esteems Jews and asked them to pray for him. He also asked that God “continue to deliver you from all evil” even though the Rabbi rejects Jesus – the only One who can deliver us from evil.
L’ Osservatore Romano, March 27, 2013, p. 4.
In his June 24, 2013 address to members of the International Jewish committee, Francis called Jews believers, and asked Jews to pray for him.
Francis’ Heresies on Islam
August 2, 2005 Francis prayed before dead body of the Muslim president of the Islamic Center of Argentina. The body was placed east toward Mecca. The Islamic imam recited verses from the Koran and asked for blessings from Muhammad. Antipope Francis prays before the body of the deceased leader of the Islamic Center in ArgentinaFrancis said: “With my prayer I ask the creator, the most merciful to repay him for all the good he did”. Antipope Francis calls deceased Muslim leader a “believer” and prays that God “repay for all the good he did”
St. Thomas Aquinas taught: “If anyone were to worship at the tomb of Muhammad, he would be deemed an apostate”. Francis’ action of venerating the dead body of a Muslim leader is equivalent to worshipping at the tomb of Muhammad.
On June 29, 2010 Francis visited an Islamic Center and said: “I came as a brother to strengthen ties.”
In his Homily of July 8, 2013 Francis spoke to Muslims saying: “I also think with affection of those Muslim immigrants who this evening begin the fast of Ramadan, which I trust will bear abundant spiritual fruit.”
Francis Heresies On Other False Religions
In On Heaven and Earth, page 236 Francis wrote about new religious belief systems and movements. He stated: “I am respectful of all new spiritual proposals… Surviving the passage of time is the major test of spiritual purity.”
So, according to the apostate Francis, the false religion of Hinduism is a true and pure spirituality because it has been around for 3,000 years and has survived “the passage of time”.
Francis, Address, May 18, 2013: “… promote religious freedom for everyone, everyone! Every man and every woman must be free in his or her profession of religion, whatever it may be.” L’ Osservatore Romano, May 22, 2013, p. 11.
The Catholic Church condemns the idea that religious freedom should be a universal civil right.
After the September 11, 2001 attacks in America, Francis participated in a prayer meeting with the leaders of other false religions, at the foot of an Obelisk in Argentina. The obelisk is a masonic phallic symbol.
In his Jan. 6, 1928 encyclical Mortalium Animos Pope Pius XI condemned Catholic participation in interreligious prayer meetings as apostasy. He taught that those who favor this activity have abandoned the Catholic religion. He also said: “So, Venerable Brethren, it is clear why this Apostolic See has never allowed its subjects to take part in the assemblies of non-Catholics”.
But, as we have already seen, Francis has been involved in numerous interreligious prayer meetings.
On January 24, 2002, Francis invited many different leaders of false religions to pray in the cathedral in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The meeting included leaders from Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam and Judaism. Francis’ announcement during the meeting was that “every religious group will pray according to their faith, language and tradition, in full respect for others.” This is apostasy. Antipope Francis as “Cardinal” Bergoglio holds an interreligious meeting in Argentina in 2002
On May 5, 2006 Francis prayed with members of the Universal Parliament of Religions and in 2011 Francis held his own interreligious prayer meeting.
On March 20, 2013 Francis had a meeting with leaders of different religions which included schismatics, Jews and Muslims. Francis said: “Yesterday morning, during Holy Mass, through you I felt the spiritual presence of the communities which you represent…” (L’ Osservatore Romano, March 27, 2013, p. 7.) He went on to say that he esteems them.
As we have just shown, Francis completely rejects the infallible teaching of the Catholic Church that members of false religions need to accept the Catholic faith for salvation.
Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, 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.”
Francis Respects Atheists
In On Heaven and Earth, pp. 12-13 Francis says he respects atheists and doesn’t try to convert them: “I do not approach the relationship in order to proselytize, or convert the atheist; I respect him… nor would I say that his life is condemned, because I am convinced that I do not have the right to make a judgment about the honesty of that person… every man is the image of God, whether he is a believer or not. For that reason alone everyone has a series of virtues, qualities, and a greatness of his own.”
Francis Respects Those Who Commit Suicide
Francis, On Heaven and Earth, pp. 92-93: “There was a time when they did not perform funerals for those that committed suicide because they had not continued on towards the goal; they ended the path when they wanted to. But I still respect the one who commits suicide; he is a person who could not overcome the contradictions in his life. I do not reject him.”
Francis’ Teaching On Man
Francis, Conversations, p. 220: “For me, hope is in the human person… I believe in man. I’m not saying man is good or bad, just that I believe in man.”
Francis’ Heretical Teaching On Sin
Francis, Conversations, pp. 120-121: “I often say that the only glory we have, as Saint Paul says, is that of being sinners.”
Saint Paul doesn’t say this. This is outrageous. Francis then goes on to say on the next page:
“That’s why, for me, sin is not a stain I need to clean.”
Francis, Conversations, p. 129: “… it is a problem of sin. For four years Argentina has been living a sinful existence because it has not taken responsibility for those who have no food or work.”
Notice that the only sin Francis speaks of is not giving people food or work; he says nothing about sins against God and God’s faith.
Francis On Communism
Francis, On Heaven and Earth, p. 131: “I remember that in high school there was a Communist professor. We had a wonderful relationship with him, he questioned us about everything and it was good for us, but he never lied to us.”
Francis, Conversations, p. 39: “It’s true that I was, like the rest of my family, a practicing Catholic. But my mind was not made solely for religious questions… I read Our Word and Proposals, a publication by the Communist Party, and I loved every article ever written by Leonidas Barletta, one of their best-known members…”
Francis On the Death Penalty
Francis, Conversations, p. 101: “… there is now an increasing awareness of the immorality of the death penalty.”
This statement is completely heretical. The Catholic Church has always supported the legitimacy of the death penalty for extremely grave crimes.
Francis Promotes Sex Education
Francis, Conversations, p. 111: “The Church is not opposed to sex education. Personally, I believe that it ought to be available throughout children’s upbringing, adapted to different age groups. In truth, the Church always provided sex education, although I acknowledge that it hasn’t always been adequate.”
Pope Pius XI, Dec. 31, 1931: “For here and there a great many foolishly and dangerously hold and advance the method of education, which is disgustingly called ‘sexual’…”
Francis Encourages Priests To Leave The Priesthood If They Fall In Love
Francis, Conversations, pp. 118-119: “There are times when a priest does fall in love and must reassess his vocation and his life. Then he must go to the bishop and tell him, ‘I’ve made up my mind… I didn’t know I was going to feel something so beautiful… I truly love this woman’, and he asks to leave the priesthood.
- And what do you do in these cases?
Francis: I stay with him; I accompany him on his spiritual journey. If he is sure of his decision, I even help him find work… We request what is called ‘dispensation,’ permission from Rome, and then he would be allowed to receive the sacrament of marriage.”
So Francis will help a man who has taken a permanent vow of chastity before God to break his vow and leave the priesthood. What a heretic. The Catholic Church has never allowed a priest to leave the priesthood and get married. This is a heretical invention promoted after Vatican II.
Francis’ heretical teaching on gay “marriage” and homosexuality
It has now been documented and confirmed that Francis favored homosexual civil unions when he was in Argentina. He just didn’t want a homosexual civil union to be called a marriage. This is heresy. It means that Francis approved perverted and abominable sexual behavior that is condemned in Scripture and Catholic teaching. His stance is no different at all from endorsing abortion under the condition that the state does not give abortion special or privileged status by using state funds for it.
Notice the following interesting statements Francis makes about gay “marriage” and homosexuals.
Francis, On Heaven and Earth, p. 117: “When the head of the Government of the City of Buenos Aires, Mauricio Macri, did not appeal the judge’s opinion right away authorizing a [same-sex] wedding. I felt that I had something to say, to inform; I saw myself with an obligation to state my opinion. It was the first time in eighteen years as bishop that I criticized a government official. If you analyze the two declarations that I formulated, at no time did I speak about homosexuals nor did I make any derogatory reference toward them… Macri told me that these were his convictions; I respected him for that, but the head of the Government does not have to transfer his personal convictions to law. In no moment did I speak disrespectfully about homosexuals…”
Francis says he respects those who favor the abomination of same sex “marriage”, and says he never was disrespectful to sodomites and perverts.
Francis also mentions how he allowed the pro-gay “marriage” supporting president of Argentina, Nestor Kirchner, to preside over a “Catholic” memorial service to honor deceased “Catholic priests” and seminarians:
Francis, Conversations, p. 145: “I even asked him to preside over the ceremony when he arrived at the church…”
Later when the apostate president died, Francis immediately offered a public “requiem mass” for him.
Francis also allowed politicians who are vocal pro-abortion and gay “marriage” supporters to receive “communion” at his installation “mass”.
Francis’ heretical teaching on Heretics and Schismatics
On Heaven and Earth, p. 128: “I also do not agree with religion classes that entail discrimination against non-Catholics…”
In Argentina, Francis would recommend “Catholics” seeking an exorcism to a Lutheran exorcist.
In On Heaven and Earth, p.72 Francis quotes what his grandmother told him when he was younger, “… ‘they are Protestants, but they are good.’ That was the wisdom of the true religion.”
In 2006, Francis knelt to receive a blessing from protestants during an ecumenical meeting. Francis in a 2006 interreligious prayer meeting – he kneels to be “blessed” by a Protestant “minister”
Francis did the same thing immediately after being elected antipope on 3/13/13. Francis (instead of blessing the people) asked the people to bless him (this included numerous members of various non-Catholic religions). L’ Osservatore Romano, March 20, 2013, p. 1.
On March 18, 2013, Francis wrote to the new leader of the Anglican sect. He called the layman Justin Welby “reverend,” even though the Catholic Church under Pope Leo XIII reaffirmed on September 13, 1896 that the Anglican rite of ordination is totally invalid. Francis said Welby has a “pastoral ministry” and he called him “Archbishop” of Canterbury which means he believes that the leader of the heretical and schismatic Anglican sect is the true jurisdictional leader of the one true Church for Canterbury, England. He also asked the heretical and schismatic leader to pray for him. L’ Osservatore Romano, March 27, 2013, p. 6.
In his June 14, 2013 address to the schismatic Welby, Francis welcomes him “not as a guest or a stranger, but as a fellow citizen of the Saints, and the Family of God.” Francis thus emphatically teaches that the non-Catholic Welby, whom Francis calls “Your Grace”, is a member of the Church of Christ. This is outrageous heresy. Francis then says he is “deeply grateful” that the heretical and schismatic layman prayed for him. Francis goes on to say that he has profound respect for Anglicans and that there is now a better appreciation for Anglican spiritual and so-called liturgical traditions.
As it is taught in Vatican II, Francis holds that Protestants and the “Orthodox” are in the Church of Christ, and that they don’t need to be converted to the Catholic faith for salvation. That is heresy.
Francis, May 10, 2013 Greeting to schismatic “Orthodox Pope” of Alexandria, Egypt: “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.” L’ Osservatore Romano, May 15, 2013, p. 3.
Francis calls the schismatic “Holiness” and says God entrusted his flock to a schismatic. He also calls him a pastor which means he believes the schismatic leader is a true jurisdictional leader of the one true Church of Christ.
In his June 28, 2013 discourse to a delegation of the schismatic Eastern “Orthodox” Church of Constantinople, Francis begs them to pray for him, saying: “I ask you, finally, to pray for me – I need your prayers…” L’ Osservatore Romano, July 3, 2013, p. 5.
Francis, General Audience, June 19, 2013: “… today, before leaving home, I spent 40 minutes, more or less, half an hour, with an evangelical pastor and we prayed together…” L’ Osservatore Romano, June 26, 2013, p. 11.
In On Heaven and Earth, pp. 217-218, Francis recommends that different denominations “walk together in a reconciled diversity… by doing things together, by praying together… without nullifying the diverse traditions”.
Here Francis promotes the heresy that we should not convert non-Catholics but walk and pray together with them without nullifying their diverse heretical and schismatic traditions.
Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos: “…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…”
Francis the liturgical revolutionary
Here is Francis celebrating a modernist kiddie “Mass” with female liturgical dancing.
Francis, On Heaven and Earth, p. 102: “In Catholicism, for example, many women lead a liturgy of the word…”
Francis has of course given “communion” in the hand throughout his life. Francis has never offered a valid mass, not just because he offers the invalid New Mass, but also because he was “ordained” on 12/13/69 in the new, invalid rite of ordination. Francis, like his predecessor Benedict XVI, was “consecrated a bishop” in the new, invalid rite of consecration. A true pope is the bishop of Rome. Francis is not a bishop. That’s another reason he is not the pope.
Freemasons Endorse Francis
Francis was recently praised by the Grand Masters of the Grand Orient Lodges of Italy and Argentina. They publicly supported Francis’ election as the new antipope.
In this picture taken of Francis, we can see him giving what looks like the sign of the master of the second veil in Freemasonry. This is a clear hand gesture given by Freemasons throughout history. It would be no surprise to find out that Francis is a Freemason, because his beliefs which have been manifested by his words and deeds are indeed masonic. The main teaching of Freemasonry is that all religions lead to God. As we have clearly proven in this brief overview of Francis – this is exactly what he believes. 1 minute video: Proof Antipope Francis is a Freemason?
In short, Francis firmly believes and teaches the same heresies that have been promoted by the other Vatican II antipopes. Francis is a total heretic and an apostate. Catholic dogma defines that a heretic is not a member of the Catholic Church. It is therefore infallible that Francis is not a valid pope but a heretical non-Catholic antipope.comments powered by Disqus
