Francis’ Recent Heresies
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
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”. 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.”
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:
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.”
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.”
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…’”
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.”
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.” 
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”:
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 other. It 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.”
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 praiseworthy… Not only are those who hold this opinion in error and deceived, but also in distorting the idea of true religion they reject it… 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 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.”
