Brother Michael Dimond Francis’ Recent Heresies
Francis’ answers to questions from the “Polish Bishops” before World Youth Day in Krakow on July 27, 2016:
“To want to innovate and change the parish structure? What I am saying may seem heretical, but it is how I see things. I believe the parish structure is analogous to the episcopal structure, different but analogous. The parish cannot be touched; it has to remain as a place of creativity, a reference point, a mother, all these things. It is where that inventiveness has to find expression. When a parish does all this, it becomes – with regard to missionary disciples – what I call a ‘parish that goes forth’… I don’t know if this is a simplistic answer, but I don’t have any other. I’m not a brilliant pastoral theologian, I just say whatever comes to mind.”
After giving his position on “parish structure”, Francis admits: “what I am saying may seem heretical, but it is how I see things”. Antipope Francis says the parish “has to remain as a place of creativity” and “inventiveness”.
Francis’ August 28, 2016 address “at the Angelus”:
“On Thursday, 1 September, we will celebrate the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, together with our Orthodox brothers and other Churches.”
Francis publicly announces that he will be joining the heretical and schismatic “Orthodox” and “other Churches” in prayer. Therefore, Francis is publicly announcing to the world that he will be committing mortal sin. By his words, he encourages others to join him in his mortally sinful behavior.
Francis’ September 1, 2016 message for the “World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation”:
“United with our Orthodox brothers and sisters, and with the support of other Churches and Christian communities... Patriarch Dimitrios, has long spoken out against the sin of harming creation and has drawn attention to the moral and spiritual crisis at the root of environmental problems… Christians or not, as people of faith and goodwill, we should be united in showing mercy to the earth as our common home and cherishing the world in which we live as a place for sharing and communion… Further, ‘to commit a crime against the natural world is a sin against ourselves and a sin against God.’… In the light of what is happening to our common home, may the present Jubilee of Mercy summon the Christian faithful ‘to profound interior conversion’ (Laudato Si’, 217), sustained particularly by the sacrament of Penance. During this Jubilee Year, let us learn to implore God’s mercy for those sins against creation that we have not hitherto acknowledged and confessed. Let us likewise commit ourselves to taking concrete steps towards ecological conversion, which requires a clear recognition of our responsibility to ourselves, our neighbors, creation and the Creator… The first step in this process is always an examination of conscience… Turning to this bountiful and merciful Father who awaits the return of each of his children, we can acknowledge our sins against creation, the poor and future generations. ‘Inasmuch as we all generate small ecological damage,’ we are called to acknowledge ‘our contribution, smaller or greater, to the disfigurement and destruction of creation.’ This is the first step on the path of conversion. In 2000, also a Jubilee Year, my predecessor Saint John Paul II asked Catholics to make amends for past and present religious intolerance, as well as for injustice towards Jews…”
Francis says that “Catholics” need to “acknowledge our sins against creation”, because “we all generate small ecological damage”. “Catholics” must commit to “taking concrete steps towards ecological conversion”, Francis declares. This is heretical nonsense.
Francis’ September 20, 2016 address to leaders of different religions after interreligious ceremony at “St. Francis’ Square” during the “30th World Day of Prayer for Peace”:
“Our religious traditions are diverse. But our differences are not the cause of conflict and dispute, or a cold distance between us. We have not prayed against one another today… we have rather prayed side by side and for each other… We who are here together and in peace believe and hope in a fraternal world. We desire that men and women of different religions may everywhere gather and promote harmony... As religious leaders, we are duty bound to be strong bridges of dialogue…”
According to Francis, differences about who God is and differences in religious belief are “not the cause of conflict and dispute”. Francis says he prays “side by side” with leaders of different false religions. Francis refers to them as “religious leaders”. Francis is an apostate.
Francis’ September 20, 2016 address to “religious leaders of the American Continents”:
“Religions play a very important role in this task of promoting care and respect for the environment, especially in this integral ecology. Faith in God leads us to know Him in his Creation, which is the fruit of his Love for us, and it calls us to look after and protect nature. Thus, it is necessary that religions promote a true education, at all levels... Our religious traditions are a necessary source of inspiration to foster a culture of encounter. Interreligious cooperation, based on the promotion of sincere and respectful dialogue, is essential. If there is no mutual respect there will be no interreligious dialogue. I remember that in my city, when I was a child, a parish priest ordered that the Evangelicals’ tents be burnt and, thank God, this was avoided. If there is no mutual respect, there will be no interreligious dialogue; it is the basis to be able to walk together and face challenges. This dialogue is founded on one’s identity and on mutual trust, which is born when we are able to recognize the other as a gift of God and accept that he has something to say to us. The other has something to communicate. Every encounter with the other is a small seed that is deposited… Moreover, it asks us to cooperate among ourselves and with men and women of good will, who do not profess a religion, in order to give effective answers to the many plagues of our world, such as war and hunger, the poverty that afflicts millions of people, the environmental crisis, violence, corruption and moral degradation, the crisis of the family, of the economy and, above all, the lack of hope. Today’s world suffers and needs our joint help, and thus it is asking us for it. Do you realize that this is light years away from any proselytistic concept?… It is necessary to show the positive values that are inherent in our religious traditions as a sure source of hope. Therefore, meetings such as the present one are important… Lastly, this meeting is taking place in the Year dedicated to the Jubilee of Mercy, whose universal value embraces both believers as well as non-believers, because God’s merciful love has no limits: not of culture, nor race, nor language, nor religion; it embraces all those who suffer in body and in spirit. Moreover, God’s love envelops the whole of His Creation and we, as believers, have the responsibility to defend, care for and heal the one who needs it.”
According to Francis, non-Catholic religions “are a necessary source of inspiration”. Francis teaches the heresy that there are people “of good will, who do not profess a religion”. Francis says that God’s love embraces even those who reject Him and practice false religions. But God’s merciful love only embraces those who truly accept Him, repent, and cooperate with His grace. Francis also, once again, rejects “any proselytistic concept”. He also states that values “inherent” in false religions are “a sure source of hope”. This is apostasy and a false gospel. Francis ends by calling the leaders of various false religions “believers”.
Francis’ September 24, 2016 address to “the survivors and families of the attack in Nice, France”:
“In particular I think of the Alpes-Maritimes Fraternité association, present here, which is made up of representatives of all the religious confessions, and this is a very beautiful sign of hope. I am delighted to see that among you interreligious relationships are very active, and this cannot but contribute to alleviate the wounds of these tragic events.”
An association “which is made up of representatives of all the religious confessions” is a “very beautiful sign of hope”, according to the apostate Antipope Francis.
Francis’ September 24, 2016 address to Eastern schismatic “Patriarch” Illa II “to overcome misunderstandings and fears”:
“I thank Your Holiness. I am deeply moved on hearing the Ave Maria which Your Holiness yourself composed. Only from a heart that loves the Holy Mother of God so much, from the heart of a son and indeed a child, can issue something so beautiful. It is a great joy and a special grace to be with you Your Holiness and Beatitude, and with the Venerable Metropolitans, Archbishops and Bishops, members of the Holy Synod… With the first historic visit of a Georgian Patriarch to the Vatican, Your Holiness opened a new chapter in relations between the Orthodox Church of Georgia and the Catholic Church. On that occasion, you exchanged with the Bishop of Rome a kiss of peace and a pledge to pray for one other. In this way, there has been a strengthening of the meaningful ties that have existed between our communities… Now, Divine Providence allows us to meet again and, faced with a world thirsting for mercy, unity and peace, asks us to ardently renew our commitment to the bonds which exist between us, of which our kiss of peace and our fraternal embrace are already an eloquent sign. The Orthodox Church of Georgia, rooted in the preaching of the Apostles, in particular that of the Apostle Andrew… Thank you, Holiness. May God bless Your Holiness and the Orthodox Church of Georgia…Thank you Holiness for your welcome and for your words. Thank you for your kindness and also for this fraternal commitment to pray for one another after our kiss of peace.”
Francis declares that a schismatic leader (“His Holiness”, according to Francis) “loves the Holy Mother of God so much”. Francis considers it a “great joy” and a “special grace” to be with schismatic leaders. Antipope Francis says the schismatic church is “rooted in the preaching of the Apostles”. He ends by asking God to bless this schismatic sect of Georgia!
