Francis’ Recent Heresies
Francis’ November 28, 2017 address:
“The religions can play a significant role in repairing the emotional, spiritual and psychological wounds of those who have suffered in the years of conflict. Drawing on deeply-held values, they can help to uproot the causes of conflict, build bridges of dialogue, seek justice and be a prophetic voice for all who suffer. It is a great sign of hope that leaders of the various religious traditions in this country are making efforts to work together, in a spirit of harmony and mutual respect, for peace, for helping the poor and for educating in authentic religious and human values. In seeking to build a culture of encounter and solidarity, they contribute to the common good and to laying the indispensable moral foundations for a future of hope and prosperity for coming generations… It is my hope that, in respectful cooperation with the followers of other religions, and all men and women of good will, they will help to open a new era of concord and progress for the people of this beloved nation. ‘Long live Myanmar!’”
The apostate Francis says that false religions can play a significant role repairing spiritual wounds and be a prophetic voice for all who suffer. Francis says it is “a great sign” to see different religions working together “in a spirit of harmony and mutual respect”. Francis then says that it’s a good thing for false religions to promote their “religious values”. When this happens, according to Francis, it lays “the indispensable moral foundations for a future of hope and prosperity for coming generations”. Francis ends by calling for “respectful cooperation with the followers of other religions”. This is religious indifferentism and apostasy from the Catholic faith.
Francis’ November 28, 2017 greeting to 17 “religious leaders” of Myanmar:
“First of all, thank you for coming. Perhaps I should have been the one to visit each one of you, but you have been generous and have spared me the effort. Thank you. As you were speaking, a prayer came to my mind, a prayer that we often recite, taken from the Book of Psalms: ‘How good it is to see brothers united’… We are all different and each confession has its richness, its traditions, its richness to give, to share… Unity is always achieved with differences… We have to understand the richness of our ethnic, religious, popular differences, and from these very differences dialog is born. From these differences one learns from the other, as brothers… As brothers who help one another to build this Country, which also has many geographic resources and differences. We must not be afraid of differences. Our Father is one; we are brothers… I thank you for having come to pay me this visit. In reality it is I who am visiting you, and I would like that, at least spiritually, you may welcome this visit; the visit of another brother… True divine harmony is created through differences. Differences are a resource for peace. Thank you very much. Allow me to recite a prayer, as a brother to brothers. An ancient blessing which includes us all: ‘May the Lord bless you and keep you, make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you. May he lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace’. Thank you!”
Francis says meeting with the leaders of false religions is an example of “brothers united”. He says that “each confession has its richness” to give and share. Francis utters the heretical nonsense that unity “is always achieved with differences” and adds: “True divine harmony is created through differences”. Francis says he is a brother of the leaders of false religions and that God blesses those who lead false religions.
Francis’ November 29, 2017 address during meeting with “Sangha Supreme Council of Buddhist Monks”:
“It is a great joy for me to be with you. I thank the Most Venerable Bhaddanta Dr Kumarabhivamsa, Chairman of the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee… Our meeting is an important occasion to renew and strengthen the bonds of friendship and respect between Buddhists and Catholics… Not only in Myanmar, but also throughout the world, people need this common witness by religious leaders… In the face of these challenges, we must never grow resigned. For on the basis of our respective spiritual traditions, we know that there is a way forward, a way that leads to healing, mutual understanding and respect… I express my esteem for all those in Myanmar who live in accord with the religious traditions of Buddhism. Through the teachings of the Buddha, and the dedicated witness of so many monks and nuns, the people of this land have been formed… The great challenge of our day is to help people be open to the transcendent. To be able to look deep within and to know themselves in such a way as to see their interconnectedness with all people. To realize that we cannot be isolated from one another. If we are to be united, as is our purpose, we need to surmount all forms of misunderstanding, intolerance, prejudice and hatred. How can we do this? The words of the Buddha offer each of us a guide: ‘Overcome the angry by non-anger; overcome the wicked by goodness; overcome the miser by generosity; overcome the liar by truth’ (Dhammapada, XVII, 223)… May that wisdom continue to inspire every effort to foster patience and understanding, and to heal the wounds of conflict that through the years have divided people of different cultures, ethnicities and religious convictions. Such efforts are never solely the purview of religious leaders… Indeed, if these efforts are to bear lasting fruit, greater cooperation between religious leaders will be required. In this, I want you to know that the Catholic Church is a willing partner… Such gatherings are essential if we are to deepen our understanding of one another and affirm our interconnectedness and common destiny… Dear friends, may Buddhists and Catholics walk together along this path… On behalf of my Catholic brothers and sisters, I express our readiness to continue walking with you and sowing seeds of peace and healing, compassion and hope in this land. Once more, I thank you for inviting me to be with you today. Upon all of you I invoke the divine blessings of joy and peace.”
The heretic Francis calls the Buddhist leader “venerable”. He says that he respects the practitioners of the demonic false religion of Buddhism. He expresses “esteem” for all those “who live in accord with the religious traditions of Buddhism”. Francis says that Buddhists are “religious leaders” who offer a “witness”. Francis promotes “the teachings of the Buddha” and praises the “dedicated witness of so many [Buddhist] monks and nuns”! Francis says that Buddhists “help people be open to the transcendent” and that “the words of the Buddha offer each of us a guide”. He adds that this “wisdom” continues to “inspire”. Francis says that “greater cooperation” between Buddhist leaders and “Catholic leaders” “will be required” and that “the Catholic Church” is a willing partner. Francis says that we need to “deepen our understanding” of Buddhism and “affirm our interconnectedness and common destiny” with Buddhists. Francis calls for Buddhists and “Catholics” to “walk together”. Francis then adds that he wants to continue to walk with Buddhists. He concludes by invoking “divine blessings” upon the leaders and followers of the diabolical “religion” of Buddhism – a false religion that leads all who follow it to eternal darnation.
Francis’ November 30, 2017 address to the “leaders and authorities of Bangladesh”:
“Although my visit is primarily addressed to Bangladesh’s Catholic community, a privileged moment will be my meeting tomorrow in Ramna with ecumenical and interreligious leaders. Together we will pray for peace and reaffirm our commitment to work for peace. Bangladesh is known for the harmony that has traditionally existed between followers of the various religions. This atmosphere of mutual respect, and a growing climate of interreligious dialogue, enables believers to express freely their deepest convictions about the meaning and purpose of life. In this way, they can contribute to promoting the spiritual values that are the sure basis for a just and peaceful society. In a world where religion is often – scandalously – misused to foment division, such a witness to its reconciling and unifying power is all the more necessary.”
Francis publicly announces that he will be committing mortal sin the following day when he prays with leaders of false religions. Francis says that he respects the leaders of false religions. He declares that leaders of false religions should be able to promote their false teachings so that “they can contribute to promoting the spiritual values” to society. The apostate then states that it’s scandalous to see divisions as a result of religion. He is a notorious heretic and an apostate promoter of religious indifferentism.
Francis’ November 30, 2017 message to “Patriarch Bartholomew”:
“To His Holiness Bartholomew Archbishop of Constantinople Ecumenical Patriarch
Though away from Rome on my Pastoral Visit to Myanmar and Bangladesh, I wish to extend my fraternal best wishes to Your Holiness and to the members of the Holy Synod, the clergy, the monks, and all the faithful gathered for the Divine Liturgy in the Patriarchal Church of Saint George for the liturgical commemoration of Saint Andrew the Apostle, brother of Simon Peter and first-called of the Apostles, the patron saint of the Church of Constantinople and of the Ecumenical Patriarchate. When the deacon invites those gathered during the Divine Liturgy to pray ‘for those who travel by land, sea, and air’, I ask you, please, to pray also for me… It is a source of joy to learn that on the eve of the feast of Saint Andrew, during a meeting attended by Your Holiness, the fiftieth anniversary of the visit of Pope Paul VI to the Phanar on 25 July 1967 was commemorated. That historic moment of communion between the Pastors of the Church of Rome and the Church of Constantinople brings to mind the words of Patriarch Athenagoras… I offer my heartfelt gratitude to Your Holiness for the generous and warm hospitality extended by the Metropolis of Leros of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, under the pastoral care of His Eminence Paisios, to the members of the Coordinating Committee of the Joint International Commission for Theological Dialogue between the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church. I wish to encourage anew this theological dialogue. The consensus reached by Catholics and Orthodox on certain fundamental theological principles regulating the relationship between primacy and synodality in the life of the Church in the first millennium can serve to evaluate, even critically, some theological categories and practices which evolved during the second millennium in conformity with those principles. Such consensus may enable us to envisage a common way of understanding the exercise of the ministry of the Bishop of Rome, in the context of synodality and at the service of the communion of the Church in the present context. This sensitive task needs to be pursued in an atmosphere of mutual openness and, above all, in obedience to the demands that the Holy Spirit makes of the Church.”
Francis (as always) calls the leader of the heretical and schismatic “Orthodox” sect “Your Holiness”. Francis (as always) calls the leader of the heretical and schismatic “Orthodox” church “Archbishop”. This means that Francis regards him as a jurisdictional leader in the one true Church of Christ. It also means that Francis regards the “Orthodox” church as part of the true Church of Jesus Christ. Francis calls (as always) the heretical and schismatic “Orthodox” synod “holy”. Francis asks the heretics and schismatics of the non-Catholic sect for their prayers. Francis then says he is open to a new understanding of what the Papacy should mean and how it should function, based upon the “insights” of the heretical “Orthodox” who reject the Papacy. Francis states: “Such consensus may enable us to envisage a common way of understanding the exercise of the ministry of the Bishop of Rome”! Francis therefore completely rejects Vatican I and the Catholic Church’s infallible teachings on the Office of St. Peter, which anathematize the position of the “Orthodox” on the issue.
Francis’ November 24, 2017 address to members of the Joint Commission for Theological Dialogue between the Catholic Church and the Assyrian Church of the East:
“Through you I convey my fraternal greeting in the Lord to His Holiness Mar Gewargis III, recalling with joy our cordial meeting a year ago… Arriving in some societies, émigrés encounter challenges stemming from an often difficult integration, and a marked secularization, which can hinder their efforts to preserve the spiritual riches of their traditions, and even prevent their witness of faith.”
Francis again calls the heretical and schismatic non-Catholic leader “His Holiness”. He speaks of “the spiritual riches” of non-Catholic traditions. He says that those “spiritual riches” should be preserved. He also refers to the non-Catholics’ “witness of faith” and expresses his view that it should not be prevented. He is a heretic and an apostate.
