Brother Michael Dimond
Francis’ Recent Heresies
Francis’ “homily” on October 1, 2016 at Mikheil Meskhi Stadium:
“… in a particular way I thank the faithful of the Georgian Orthodox Church who are present… please pray for me…”
Francis asks the “faithful” of the schismatic “Orthodox” church for their prayers.
Francis’ October 1, 2016 address during visit to the Church of the Assumption:
“Never fight! Let the theologians study the abstract realities of theology. But what should I do with a friend, neighbour, an Orthodox person? Be open, be a friend. ‘But should I make efforts to convert him or her?’ There is a very grave sin against ecumenism: proselytism. We should never proselytize the Orthodox! They are our brothers and sisters, disciples of Jesus Christ. Due to historical circumstances which are so complex we are where we are today. Both they and we believe in the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and we believe in the Holy Mother of God. ‘And so what should I do?’ Do not condemn. No. I must not do this. Friendship, walking together, praying for one another. Praying and carrying out works of charity together, when this is possible. This is ecumenism…”
Francis says that “Catholics” should never attempt to convert someone of the schismatic “Orthodox” faith. He says that it’s a “grave sin” to do so. Francis calls these schismatics “disciples” of Jesus Christ. He also says that “Catholics” should walk and pray with them. By his words Francis reasserts his position that a conversion from “Orthodox” to “Catholic” is meaningless and should never happen.
Francis’ October 2, 2016 press conference on return flight after his visit in the Caucasus:
Ketevan Kardava: “After your meeting with the Patriarch of Georgia, do you see a basis for future cooperation and constructive dialogue between you and the Orthodox and Catholic Churches regarding the existing doctrinal differences? You told us that we have more in common, that unites us, than what separates us. Thank you, I look forward to your response.”
Francis: “I had two surprises in Georgia. One is Georgia itself. I never imagined so much culture, so much faith, so much Christianity. They are a people of believers with a very ancient Christian culture, a people of many martyrs. I also discovered something I did not know: the deep roots of this Georgian faith. The second surprise was the Patriarch. He is a man of God; this man moved me. The times that I met him, I came away deeply moved, and with the feeling of having found a man of God. Truly, a man of God. As for the things that unite us and divide us, I would say this. Let us not start discussing issues of doctrine… Pray for one another. This is extremely important: prayer. And second, do things together… Let us do something together… Let us do some good for others, together; this we can do. This is the path of ecumenism… But let us start to walk together. With good will, we can do this. We must do this. Nowadays ecumenism means moving forward together, praying for one another.”
Comment: The “Orthodox” schismatic “Patriarch” is “truly a man of God” according to Antipope Francis. Francis once again asks schismatics for their prayers, and he says that he doesn’t want to discuss doctrine. Francis states this explicitly because true doctrine means absolutely nothing to him. In Sacred Scripture, however, St. John points out that doctrine does indeed matter. St John: “If any man come to you and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into the house nor say to him: God speed you” (2 John 1:10).
Joshua McElwee: “I would like to ask what would you say to a person who has suffered for years with his or her sexuality and truly feels that it is a biological problem, that his or her physical makeup does not correspond to what he or she considers his or her sexual identity? As a pastor and minister, how would you accompany these people?”
Francis: “First of all, in my life as a priest, as a bishop – and also as Pope – I have accompanied many people with homosexual tendencies and also homosexual activity. I have accompanied them, I have brought them closer to the Lord; some cannot do it, but I have always accompanied them and never abandoned anyone. This is what has to be done. Individuals have to be accompanied, as Jesus accompanies them. When a person who has this condition comes before Jesus, Jesus certainly does not say: ‘Go away because you are homosexual.’ No. What I was talking about has to do with the mischief going on these days with the indoctrination of gender theory. A French father told me that he was at the table speaking to his children – he is Catholic, his wife is Catholic, the children are Catholic, lukewarm Catholics, but Catholics – and he asked his ten-year old son: ‘And what do you want to be when you grow up?’ – ‘A girl.’ And his father realized that the schoolbooks were teaching gender theory. This is against the realities of nature. It is one thing if a person has this tendency, this option; some people even change sex. But it is another thing to teach this in schools, in order to change people’s way of thinking. I call this ‘ideological colonization.’ Last year I received a letter from a Spanish man who told me his story from the time when he was a child. He was born a female, a girl, and he suffered greatly because he felt that he was a boy but physically was a girl. He told his mother, when he was in his twenties, at 22, that he wanted to have an operation and so forth. His mother asked him not to do so as long as she was alive. She was elderly, and died soon after. He had the operation. He is a municipal employee in a town in Spain. He went to the bishop. The bishop helped him a great deal, he is a good bishop and he ‘wasted’ time to accompany this man. Then he got married. He changed his civil identity, he got married and he wrote me a letter saying that it would bring comfort to him to come see me with his bride: he, who had been she, but is he. I received them. They were pleased.”
Comment: Francis clearly teaches an abominable falsehood that Jesus will accept homosexuals. Francis indicates he doesn’t have a problem with those who have these unnatural inclinations or even those who get a “sex change” and then get “married”. The apostate Francis says that he received them and “they were pleased”. Francis endorses the “sex change” of a biological female who perversely attempts to be a male. He repeatedly calls the woman “he”! He even endorses the “transgender marriage” of that female who pretends to be a male! He is an abominable apostate.
Francis’ October 2, 2016 public address during visit to the mosque of Baku:
“Our being here together is a blessing. I thank the President of the Council of the Muslims in the Caucasus, who welcomes us with his customary hospitality, and the local religious Leaders of the Russian Orthodox Church, as well as the Leaders of the Jewish Communities. Meeting one another in fraternal friendship in this place of prayer is a powerful sign, one that shows the harmony which religions can build together, based on personal relations and on the good will of those responsible… I wish also to highlight the good relations that unite local Catholics to the Orthodox community in solid fraternity and daily affection which are an example for all, as well as the warm friendship shared with the Jewish community… There is here a desire to protect the great heritage of religions and, at the same time, a pursuit of deeper and more fruitful openness. The Catholic Church, for example, finds a place and lives in harmony among other religions that have far more members, demonstrating concretely that it is not opposition but cooperation that helps to build better and more peaceful societies. Our being together at this place is also in continuity with the many meetings that are held in Baku to promote dialogue and multiculturalism… out of respect for the dynamics of history, cultures and religious traditions. Religions have an enormous task: to accompany men and women looking for the meaning of life, helping them to understand… the vocation of human life is to set out towards the highest and truest love: this alone is the culmination of every authentically religious aspiration… Humanity therefore needs religion if it is to reach its goal. Religion is a compass that orients us to the good and steers us away from evil, which is always crouching at the door of a person’s heart (cf. Gen 4:7). Religions, therefore, have an educational task: to help bring out the best in each person. We, as guides, have a great responsibility, in order to offer authentic responses to men and women who are searching, who are often lost among the swirling contradictions of our time… Religions, on the contrary, which help to discern the good and put it into practice through deeds, prayer and diligent cultivation of the inner life… religions must never be instrumentalized, nor can they ever lend support to, or approve of, conflicts and disagreements. There is, furthermore, a fruitfulness deriving from the virtuous rapport between society and religions, that respectful alliance which needs to be built up and protected… it is the task of every civil society to support religion, which allows a light to shine through, indispensable for living… In this night of conflict that we are currently enduring, may religions be a dawn of peace, seeds of rebirth amid the devastation of death… may religions be active agents working to overcome the tragedies of the past and the tensions of the present. May the inestimable richness of these countries be known and valued: the treasures old and ever new of the wisdom, culture and religious sensibility of the people of the Caucasus, are a tremendous resource for the future of the region and especially for European culture; they are goods which we cannot renounce. Thank you.”
Francis begins by stating that being at the mosque with representatives of different false religions “is a blessing”. Francis promotes the mosque as “a place of prayer”. Francis then speaks of his hope for “harmony” between different “religions” who believe contradictory things on core religious matters and on even who God is. Francis speaks of how he believes “Catholics” are united with the schismatic “Orthodox”, even though the “Orthodox” reject many Catholic dogmas. Francis says the “Catholic Church” is not in opposition to other false religions, but in cooperation with them. Francis expresses respect for false religions and says that demonic non-Catholic religions “have an enormous task” helping people to understand “the meaning of life”. Francis says humanity needs “religion” – that means any “religion”. Francis says “religion” “orients us to the good and steers us away from evil”. But non-Catholic religions do the opposite of what Francis says: they orient people to evil. They lead people away from the truth and the one true religion, the Catholic religion, outside of which there is no salvation. Francis says that leaders of false religions “have an educational task: to help bring out the best in each person”. False religions can’t bring out the best in each person; instead they lead people to eternal damnation. This is more apostasy promoted by Antipope Francis. Francis calls the various leaders of false religions “guides” who “offer authentic responses to men and women who are searching”. Francis says various “religions” help people to “discern the good”. Francis utters the heresy that no “religion” can ever lend support to disagreements. Francis says that it is the duty of civil society to support “religion”. Francis is not referring only to the Catholic religion, but to any “religion”. This is directly contrary to the consistent teaching of Catholic popes throughout history. Francis says that non-Catholic “religions” allow “a light to shine through, indispensable for living”. Non-Catholic religions allow darkness and evil to shine through. They are indispensable to the Devil’s program to damn souls. Francis calls false religions “seeds of rebirth amid the devastation of death”. False religions lead those who follow them to the devastation of eternal death in Hell.
Francis’ October 2, 2016 address to Authorities and the Diplomatic Corps in Azerbaijan:
“… thanks to a society which recognizes the benefits of multiculturalism and of the necessary complementarity of cultures. This in turn leads to mutual collaboration and respect among the various components of civil society and among the adherents of various religious confessions… Every ethnic or ideological identity, as with every authentic religious path, must exclude attitudes and approaches which instrumentalize their own convictions, their own identity or the name of God in order to legitimize subjugation and supremacy. It is my sincere hope that Azerbaijan may continue along the way of cooperation between different cultures and religious confessions… I am moreover particularly pleased with the cordial relations enjoyed by the Catholic, Muslim, Orthodox and Jewish communities. It is my hope that the signs of friendship and cooperation may continue to increase. These good relations assume great significance for peaceful coexistence and for peace in the world, and they demonstrate that among the followers of different religious confessions cordial relations, respect and cooperation for the good of all are possible.”
According to Francis the apostate, the Catholic religion does not have supremacy over other “religions”. This is called religious indifferentism. Those who believe in religious indifferentism (like Francis) are apostates. Francis also promotes respect and cooperation between the various false religions.
Francis’ “Common Declaration” with Michael Ramsey “Primate of the Anglican Communion” – Signed on October 5, 2016:
“Catholics and Anglicans recognize that we are heirs of the treasure of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the call to share that treasure with the whole world. We have received the Good News of Jesus Christ through the holy lives of men and women who preached the Gospel in word and deed and we have been commissioned, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, to be Christ’s witnesses ‘to the ends of the earth’ (Acts 1:8)… discovering and rejoicing in the deep Christian faith and holiness we find within each other’s traditions. These differences must not lead to a lessening of our ecumenical endeavors… Nor should our differences come in the way of our common prayer: not only can we pray together, we must pray together, giving voice to our shared faith and joy in the Gospel of Christ, the ancient Creeds, and the power of God’s love, made present in the Holy Spirit… Fifty years ago Pope Paul VI and Archbishop Ramsey took as their inspiration the words of the apostle: ‘Forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press towards the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus’. Today, ‘those things which are behind’ – the painful centuries of separation – have been partially healed by fifty years of friendship. We give thanks for the fifty years of the Anglican Centre in Rome dedicated to being a place of encounter and friendship. We have become partners and companions on our pilgrim journey, facing the same difficulties, and strengthening each other by learning to value the gifts which God has given to the other, and to receive them as our own in humility and gratitude… we take great encouragement from the meeting during these days of so many Catholic and Anglican bishops of the International Anglican-Roman Catholic Commission for Unity and Mission (IARCCUM) who, on the basis of all that they have in common, which generations of ARCIC scholars have painstakingly unveiled, are eager to go forward in collaborative mission and witness to the ‘ends of the earth’. Today we rejoice to commission them and send them forth in pairs as the Lord sent out the seventy-two disciples. Let their ecumenical mission to those on the margins of society be a witness to all of us, and let the message go out from this holy place, as the Good News was sent out so many centuries ago, that Catholics and Anglicans will work together to give voice to our common faith…
Rome, 5 October 2016
His Grace Justin Welby His Holiness Francis”
In this declaration of faith, Antipope Francis teaches that Anglicans (who are heretics and schismatics) are “witnesses” for Jesus Christ. Francis teaches that we can discover “the deep Christian faith and holiness” in the heresy and schism of Anglicanism. Francis once again promotes prayer with these non-Catholics which the Catholic Church has always taught is a mortal sin. Francis officially teaches his followers that “not only can we pray together, we must pray together”. Francis then teaches that Anglicanism is a faith he shares. Francis gives thanks for the “fifty years of the Anglican Centre”. Francis teaches the heresy that Anglican leaders have true bishops, when in reality they are just heretical laymen. Francis teaches that Anglicans are like the “seventy-two disciples” and “Catholics” have a “common faith” with them. He is a heretic.
Francis’ October 6, 2016 discourse to “His Grace the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Primates of the Anglican Communion”:
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Thank you for your presence. It is a beautiful sign of fraternity to see the Primates of so many Provinces of the Anglican Communion joining you here in Rome. We have solemnly celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of the historic meeting between Blessed Paul VI and Archbishop Michael Ramsey. That meeting has produced many fruits: we need think only of the opening of the Anglican Centre in Rome, the appointment of the Archbishop’s permanent representative to the Holy See, and the start of our theological dialogue…”
Francis calls the heretical layman who is the leader of the heretical Anglican sect “Archbishop”. Francis rejects Pope Leo XIII’s bull which declared that the Anglicans do not have valid priests. By calling Anglican Michael Ramsey “Archbishop”, Francis is also declaring that the heretical and schismatic non-Catholic layman has jurisdictional authority in the one true Church.
Francis’ October 12, 2016 address to participants in the “Conference of Secretaries of Christian World Communions”:
“There is another ecumenism which we must recognize and which today is often present: the ecumenism of blood. When terrorists or global powers persecute Christian minorities or Christians, when they do this they do not ask: ‘Are you Lutheran? Are you Orthodox? Are you Catholic? Are you a Reformed Christian? Are you Pentecostal?’. No. ‘You are Christian?’. They recognize this alone: the Christian. The enemy does not err; he knows well how to recognize where Jesus is. It is this ecumenism of blood. Today we are witnesses, and I think, for example, of our Coptic Orthodox brothers beheaded on the Libyan beach: they are our brothers. They bore witness to Jesus and died…”
Francis declares that as long as you claim to be Christian, it doesn’t matter if you are not a Catholic; you are a “Christian” and are a “witness”. This, of course, is heresy.
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.”
Francis’ October 13, 2016 address to participants of “a pilgrimage commemorating the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation”:
I am very happy to meet you on the occasion of your ecumenical pilgrimage which began in the land of Luther, Germany, and ended here at the See of the Bishop of Rome… The Apostle Paul tells us that, by virtue of our baptism, we all form the one Body of Christ. The different members, in fact, form one body. This is why we belong to each other and when one suffers, everyone suffers, when one rejoices, all rejoice (cf. 1 Cor 12:12, 26). Let us continue with confidence on our ecumenical journey… At the end of this month, God willing, I will go to Lund, Sweden, and together with the Lutheran World Federation, we will commemorate, after five centuries, the beginning of Luther’s reformation, and thank the Lord…”
Francis utters the heresy that non-Catholics who are baptized are part of the Body of Christ. However, the Catholic Church dogmatically teaches that heretics are most certainly not members of the Body of Christ. The Church teaches that when someone who rejects the Catholic Church is baptized his heresy is an impediment to his entrance into the Body of Christ, which is the Catholic Church.
Francis’ foreword to biography of “Orthodox” Patriarch of Constantinople, Bartholomew I. Francis’ words were published in the October 21, 2016 issue of L’ Osservatore Romano:
“It is with sentiments of heartfelt closeness that I join all those who celebrate, with joy and jubilation, the 25th anniversary this year of the election of His All-Holiness Bartholomew I as ecumenical patriarch. My first meeting with my beloved brother Bartholomew took place on the very day of the inauguration of my papal ministry, when he honored me with his presence in Rome. I felt that I was meeting a man who ‘walks by faith’ (cf. 2 Cor 5:7), who in his person and his manner expresses all the profound human and spiritual experience of the Orthodox tradition. On that occasion we embraced each other with sincere affection and mutual understanding. Our successive meetings in Jerusalem, Rome, and Constantinople have not only strengthened our spiritual affinity, but above all have deepened our shared consciousness of the common pastoral responsibility we have at this point in history, before the urgent challenges that Christians and the entire human family face today… The Church of Rome and the Church of Constantinople are united by a profound and long-standing bond… It is in this certainty and with an unfailing remembrance in prayer that I express to His All-Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew my heartfelt and fraternal good wishes for a long life in the love and consolation of the Triune and One God.
Francis celebrates with “joy and jubilation” the 25th anniversary of “the election” and installation of one of the biggest schismatics in the world and the leader of a false church. Leading a false, non-Catholic sect (and directing countless souls into heresy, schism, and eternal damnation) gets you the title of “All-Holiness” from the demonic Antipope Francis. Francis calls the schismatic leader his “beloved brother” and says that the schismatic’s presence “honored” him. Francis calls the spirituality of heresy and schism in the “Orthodox” spiritual experience “profound”. Francis speaks about the schismatic’s “common pastoral responsibility”. Francis also declares that the Vatican II sect is “united by a profound and long-standing bond” to the schismatic church. Francis hopes the schismatic leader continues to have a long life “in the love and consolation of the Triune and One God”.
Francis’ October 31, 2016 “homily” during “Common Ecumenical Prayer at the Lutheran Cathedral of Lund”:
“As Catholics and Lutherans, we have undertaken a common journey of reconciliation. Now, in the context of the commemoration of the Reformation of 1517, we have a new opportunity to accept a common path… We have the opportunity to mend a critical moment of our history by moving beyond the controversies and disagreements… Certainly, there was a sincere will on the part of both sides to profess and uphold the true faith, but at the same time we realize that we closed in on ourselves out of fear or bias with regard to the faith which others profess… With gratitude we acknowledge that the Reformation helped give greater centrality to sacred Scripture in the Church’s life… Let us ask the Lord that his word may keep us united, for it is a source of nourishment and life; without its inspiration we can do nothing. The spiritual experience of Martin Luther challenges us to remember that apart from God we can do nothing. ‘How can I get a propitious God?’ This is the question that haunted Luther. In effect, the question of a just relationship with God is the decisive question for our lives. As we know, Luther encountered that propitious God in the Good News of Jesus, incarnate, dead and risen. With the concept ‘by grace alone’, he reminds us that God always takes the initiative, prior to any human response, even as he seeks to awaken that response. The doctrine of justification thus expresses the essence of human existence before God… As Lutherans and Catholics, we pray together in this Cathedral, conscious that without God we can do nothing. We ask his help, so that we can be living members, abiding in him, ever in need of his grace, so that together we may bring his word to the world…”
Francis promotes the heresy that we can simply move beyond the fact that Lutherans deny numerous Catholic dogmas. He says we must “accept a common path” with them. Francis says Luther and his followers were of “sincere will to profess and uphold the true faith”. Francis says “Catholics” should have simply accepted Martin Luther’s decision to create a new “religion”. Luther’s new, false, man-made “Christian” religion led countless souls to embrace his counterfeit Christianity. Francis also praises Luther’s “spirituality” and his heretical teaching on justification. He says this about Martin Luther, one of the most evil men in history who tried to destroy the Catholic Church!
Francis’ October 31, 2016 “Joint Statement on the occasion of the Joint Catholic-Lutheran Commemoration of the Reformation”:
“With this Joint Statement, we express joyful gratitude to God for this moment of common prayer in the Cathedral of Lund, as we begin the year commemorating the five hundredth anniversary of the Reformation… While we are profoundly thankful for the spiritual and theological gifts received through the Reformation, we also confess and lament before Christ that Lutherans and Catholics have wounded the visible unity of the Church. Theological differences were accompanied by prejudice and conflicts, and religion was instrumentalized for political ends. Our common faith in Jesus Christ and our baptism demand of us a daily conversion, by which we cast off the historical disagreements and conflicts that impede the ministry of reconciliation… we commit ourselves to further growth in communion rooted in Baptism… On this auspicious occasion, we express our gratitude to our brothers and sisters representing the various Christian World Communions and Fellowships who are present and join us in prayer. As we recommit ourselves to move from conflict to communion, we do so as part of the one Body of Christ, into which we are incorporated through Baptism. We invite our ecumenical partners to remind us of our commitments and to encourage us. We ask them to continue to pray for us, to walk with us, to support us in living out the prayerful commitments we express today… We call upon all Lutheran and Catholic parishes and communities to be bold and creative, joyful and hopeful in their commitment to continue the great journey ahead of us. Rather than conflicts of the past, God’s gift of unity among us shall guide cooperation and deepen our solidarity. By drawing close in faith to Christ, by praying together, by listening to one another, by living Christ’s love in our relationships, we, Catholics and Lutherans, open ourselves to the power of the Triune God. Rooted in Christ and witnessing to him, we renew our determination to be faithful heralds of God’s boundless love for all humanity.”
Francis begins by promoting the mortally sinful activity of praying with Lutherans and “commemorating the five hundredth anniversary of the Reformation”. Francis promotes a joint statement of faith with Lutherans. The total heretic and schismatic Francis then says he is “profoundly thankful for the spiritual and theological gifts received through the Reformation”! Luther’s rejection of biblical and Catholic teachings and his creation of a false religion are “spiritual and theological gifts” according Antipope Francis. The apostate Francis declares that Catholics have “wounded the visible unity of the Church”. This is heresy. It outrageously blames Catholics for the heresy of Protestants. It falsely asserts that the Church’s unity is impaired when heretics (such as Protestants) leave the Church. No. When Protestants and other heretics leave the Church the unity remains intact.
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 (# 4): “Furthermore, the eminence of the Church arises from its unity, as the principle of its constitution – a unity surpassing all else, and having nothing like unto it or equal to it.”
Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum (# 5): “… This unity cannot be broken, nor the one body divided…”
Francis also says “we cast off the historical disagreements and conflicts”. That means that the Lutherans’ rejection of Catholic teaching is meaningless, according to him. Francis also promotes prayer with non-Catholics and that they are “part of the one Body of Christ”. This is notorious heresy.
Francis’ October 31, 2016 address at ecumenical event in Malmo:
“I thank God for this joint commemoration of the five-hundredth anniversary of the Reformation.”
Francis thanks God for an ecumenical commemoration for “the five-hundredth anniversary of the [Protestant] Reformation”. It is amazing that some people can read these outrageously heretical statements from Antipope Francis over and over again, and still believe or tell others that he has the Catholic faith. If they remain on their current path, they will pay the ultimate price for their lies in eternal fire.
