Brother Michael Dimond Francis’ Recent Heresies
Francis’ June 1, 2014 address to the “Charismatic Renewal”:
“I thank Renewal in the Spirit, the ICCRS [International Catholic Charismatic Renewal Service] and the Catholic Fraternity for this opportunity to be with you, which is a source of great joy for me. I am grateful for the presence here of the first members of the renewal, who had an intense experience of the Holy Spirit’s power… You, the charismatic renewal, have received a great gift from the Lord. Your movement’s birth was willed by the Holy Spirit to be ‘a current of grace in the Church and for the Church’. This is your identity: to be a current of grace… When I think of charismatics, I think of the Church herself, but in a particular way: I think of a great orchestra, where all the instruments and voices are different from one another, yet all are needed to create the harmony of the music… a few months before entering the conclave, I was named the spiritual assistant for the charismatic renewal in Argentina by the Conference of Bishops… The charismatic renewal is a great force meant to serve the preaching of the Gospel in the joy of the Holy Spirit. You received the Holy Spirit… You, the people of God, the people of the charismatic renewal, must be careful not to lose the freedom which the Holy Spirit has given you!... Remember that ‘the charismatic renewal is de facto ecumenical in nature… The Catholic renewal rejoices in what the Holy Spirit is accomplishing in the other Churches’ .”
Antipope Francis promotes the “Charismatic” movement by saying that its “birth was willed by the Holy Spirit”. The antipopes of the Vatican II sect have repeatedly promoted the demonic “Charismatic” movement. However, the movement was not willed by the Holy Spirit, but rather the Devil. The “Charismatic” movement is not Catholic and is the product of an evil spirit. True Catholics know and believe that the gift of the Holy Spirit is given in Confirmation. Many “Charismatics”, on the other hand, believe that people receive the gift of the Holy Spirit in the “rites” of “the Charismatic movement”. They believe the “spirit” is transmitted when one is “slain in the spirit”, etc. It’s the devil’s substitute for Confirmation. That’s why people receive the Devil, instead of the Holy Spirit, when they participate in such rites. At some of these meetings people have oinked like pigs, barked like dogs, rolled on the ground, laughed hysterically, etc. Those things are clear signs of demonic possession and demonic activity. About 25 years ago I had a friend who told me he was once heavily involved in the “Charismatic” movement and their “prayer meetings”. He eventually left “the Charismatic” movement. But he told me that while present at one of their meetings a man put his hand on him, and then he felt a demon enter him. Antipope Francis closes his heretical address by saying that “Catholic charismatics” rejoice “in what the Holy Spirit is accomplishing in the other [non-Catholic] Churches”. His statement means that the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, is responsible for heretical and schismatic “churches”. That is heresy.
Francis’ June 5, 2014 address to “His Holiness” Aram I, after “a moment of prayer” at the ‘Redemptoris Mater’:
“Your Holiness, Dear Brother in Christ,
It is a particular joy for me to extend to Your Holiness, and to the distinguished members of your delegation, a cordial greeting in the Lord Jesus... It is a greeting which I also offer to the bishops, the clergy and all the faithful of the Catholicosate of Cilicia… One month ago, I had the pleasure of receiving His Holiness Catholicos Karekin II. Today I have the joy of welcoming Your Holiness, the Catholicos of the Great House of Cilicia. Together with you, I give thanks to the Lord for the continued growth of fraternal relations between us. I consider it a true gift from God that we can share this moment of encounter and common prayer. Your Holiness’ commitment to the cause of Christian unity is known to all. You have been especially active in the World Council of Churches… May he, the Paraclete, inspire our journey towards unity. May he teach us to strengthen the fraternal bonds which even now unite us in the one baptism and in the one faith.”
Aram I is a schismatic leader. Francis repeatedly calls the schismatic leader “Your Holiness”, and he refers to the members of his schismatic sect as “the faithful”. Antipope Francis talks about “common prayer” with schismatics and he praises them for being active in the heretical “World Council of Churches”. Francis ends by stating that he is united “in the one faith” with schismatics. Francis’ statements are completely heretical.
Francis’ June 8, 2014 reflection on “the meeting for peace” in the Holy Land – which would take place later in the day in the Vatican gardens:
“Dear Brothers and Sisters,
As you know, this evening at the Vatican, the Presidents of Israel and Palestine will join me and my brother, Bartholomaios, the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople, to invoke God...”
Antipope Francis promotes the fact that he will be invoking “God” with members of non-Catholic religions.
Francis’ June 8, 2014 address at “the meeting for peace” in the Vatican gardens:
“I also thank Your Holiness, my venerable Brother Bartholomaios, for joining me in welcoming these illustrious guests. Your presence here is a great gift… This meeting of prayer for peace in the Holy Land, in the Middle East and in the entire world is accompanied by the prayers of countless people of different cultures, nations, languages and religions: they have prayed for this meeting and even now they are united with us in the same supplication… Renew our hearts and minds, so that the word which always brings us together will be “brother”, and our way of life will always be that of: Shalom, Peace, Salaam! Amen.”
Francis (as usual) calls the schismatic leader “venerable”. He also endorses and promotes the prayers of “countless people” from various false religions. Francis says he is united with them in prayer.
Francis’ June 15, 2014 address to the community of Sant’ Egidio:
“The world suffocates without dialog: for this you also make your contribution, in order to promote friendship among religions.” 
Antipope Francis promotes “friendship among religions”, which means acceptance of false religions and their false teachings about God.
Francis’ June 16, 2014 address to “the diocese of Rome”:
“… the Church must do something, must change, must convert in order to become mother. She must be fruitful!... This is not a question of seeking to proselytize, no, no! To go ring the bell: ‘Would you like to come to this association called the Catholic Church?...’… The Church – Benedict XVI told us – does not grow through proselytism…”
Francis says the Church “must change” and “must convert”. This is heretical. Francis once again condemns proselytism – that is, attempting to convert non-Catholics to the Catholic faith. He has done this many times. To say that he has the Catholic faith, in the face of such a fact, is to blaspheme. Francis quotes the apostate Antipope Benedict XVI to support his rejection of converting non-Catholics.
Francis’ June 16, 2014 address to “His Grace” Justin Welby, the “Archbishop” of Canterbury:
“‘Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity!’ (Ps 133:1) Once again we meet, Your Grace, as co-workers in the Lord’s vineyard and fellow pilgrims on the path to his Kingdom. I welcome you and the distinguished members of your delegation… We must walk together. Your Grace, I thank you once more for your visit. I ask the Lord to shower his blessings on your ministry and to sustain you and your loved ones in joy and peace. Amen.”
Francis says that he is in “unity” with the non-Catholic leader, Justin Welby. He clearly teaches that Welby is in the Church when he says that he is a “co-worker in the Lord’s vineyard”! That is completely heretical. Francis also clearly indicates that the heretic Welby is on the road to the Kingdom of Heaven, rather than to Hell. Welby, by the way, in addition to being a complete heretic and schismatic, accepts homosexuality. Welby has spoken out strongly against “homophobia”. Welby also said: "You see gay relationships that are just stunning in the quality of the relationship". Francis (as usual) calls the non-Catholic leader Welby “Your Grace”. Antipope Francis ends by asking “the Lord to shower his blessings on your ministry”. Welby’s “ministry” is wicked, false, schismatic, and heretical. It leads souls to eternal damnation.
Francis’ June 20, 2014 address at conference on “religious freedom and international law”:
“The debate over religious freedom has become very intense recently, turning to both Governments and religious Confessions. On this matter, the Catholic Church refers to the Declaration Dignitatis Humanae, one of the most important documents of the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council… Religious freedom is not only that of private thought or worship. It is the liberty to live, both privately and publicly, according to the ethical principles resulting from found truth… Legal systems, therefore, whether state or international, are called upon to recognize, guarantee and protect religious freedom, which is an intrinsic right inherent to human nature, to the dignity of being free, and is also a sign of a healthy democracy and one of the principle sources of the legitimacy of the State. Religious freedom, acknowledged in constitutions and laws and expressed in consistent conduct promotes the development of relationships of mutual respect among the diverse Confessions and their healthy collaboration with the State and political society… I truly hope that your conference defines in depth and great precision the justifications that obligate every legal system to respect and defend religious freedom. I thank you for this contribution.” 
Francis’ statement that religious freedom must be guaranteed in law, and that everyone must be able to promote their beliefs publicly, has been consistently condemned by true popes. It alone would prove that he’s a heretic.
Francis’ June 26, 2014 address. He spoke about “Eastern Christians” and “ROACO”:
“… overcome persistent forms of discrimination, starting with those based on religion… in full respect for their identity and religious freedom.”
Antipope Francis teaches that there can be no discrimination of any kind against false religions.
Francis’ words on June 28, 2014 when he received a delegation of the “Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople”:
“The Solemnity of the Holy Patrons of the Church of Rome, the Apostles Peter and Paul, once again gives me the joy of greeting a delegation from the sister Church of Constantinople. In extending to you a warm welcome, I express my gratitude to the Ecumenical Patriarch, His Holiness Bartholomaios I, and to the Holy Synod for having sent you to share with us in the joy of this feast. I have vivid and moving memories of my recent meetings with my beloved brother Bartholomaios… I consider it a special gift from the Lord that we were able to venerate the holy places together and to pray at each other’s side… The joy of that meeting was then renewed when, in a certain sense, we concluded our pilgrimage here at the tomb of the Apostle Peter as we joined in fervent prayer, together with the Presidents of Israel and Palestine… We need to let ourselves be caught up in Christ’s loving gaze upon the Church, his Bride, in our journey of spiritual ecumenism. It is a journey upheld by the martyrdom of so many of our brothers and sisters who, by their witness to Jesus Christ the Lord, have brought about an ecumenism of blood. Dear members of the Delegation, with sentiments of sincere respect, friendship and love in Christ, I renew my heartfelt gratitude for your presence among us. I ask you to convey my greeting to my venerable brother Bartholomaios and to continue to pray for me…”
Francis calls the schismatic “Orthodox” church of Constantinople a “sister Church”, “the Holy Synod”, “The Church”, and Christ’s “Bride”. He calls the leader of the schismatic church his “beloved” and “venerable brother”. Antipope Francis says it is “a special gift from the Lord” to commit mortal sin by praying with the leader of a non-Catholic sect. Francis mentions joining in “fervent prayer” with the schismatic leader and political leaders from Israel and Palestine, who are of the Jewish and Muslim “faith”. Francis ends by saying that there are non-Catholic martyrs, promoting “an ecumenism of blood”, and asking the schismatics to “continue to pray for me”. Antipope Francis is a schismatic.
Francis’ interview with “Il Messaggero”. The interview was published on June 29, 2014: Question for Francis: “Why have you, from the very beginning, chosen to stress your role as the Bishop of Rome?”
Francis: “Francis’ first service is this: to be the Bishop of Rome.”
Question for Francis: “Where is Bergoglio’s Church headed?”
Francis: “Thank God, I have no Church; I follow Christ.”
The interviewer asks Francis about where his “Church” is headed. Antipope Francis, a person many consider to be the head of the Catholic Church, responds by saying: “Thank God, I have no Church.” This is an incredible heresy. It's a public statement that he is not a member of the Catholic Church, and that he is not the pope. Catholics profess belief in the Catholic Church in the Apostles' Creed, the Nicene-Constantinople Creed, and many dogmatic councils.
Francis’ June 29, 2014 homily for the feast day of St. Peter and St. Paul: “On this Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul, the principle patrons of Rome, we welcome with joy and gratitude the Delegation sent by the Ecumenical Patriarch, our venerable and beloved brother Bartholomaios, and led by Metropolitan Ioannis.”
Francis once again calls the schismatic leader “venerable and beloved”.
On July 26, 2014, Francis answered questions from “priests” from “the Diocese of Caserta”. Francis recounts a story a “priest” told him about a woman who left “Catholicism” and joined a Protestant sect. The “priest” told Francis that the woman (now a Protestant) kept a statue of The Blessed Virgin. The Protestant woman said that she now keeps the statue in the closet, for fear that her Protestant “pastor” might find it. Francis said the “priest” told him that the woman has not returned to “the Catholic Church”, and that “she continues to go to Protestant” services. Francis then says:
“And he did not go beyond that, and he did not urge her to return to the Catholic Church. It is that prudent closeness, which knows just how far one can reach… Proselytism is a trap… And Pope Benedict has a beautiful expression. He said it in Aparecida but I believe he repeated it elsewhere: ‘The Church grows not by proselytism, but by attraction.’” 
Francis once again confirms what he has said many times before: do “not urge” non-Catholics “to return to the Catholic Church”. This is word for word the opposite of Catholic teaching.
Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos (# 10), Jan. 6, 1928: “… 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…”
When teaching that horrible heresy, Francis once again quotes the apostate Antipope Benedict XVI (who likewise condemned proselytism).
Francis’ July 28, 2014 address during his visit to the “pastor” and community of the “Pentecostal Church of Reconciliation” in Caserta, Italy:
“Good morning, Brothers and Sisters,
My brother, Pastor Giovanni, began speaking about the center of our life: to be in the presence of Jesus… From the first moment of Christianity, there has been this temptation in the Christian community. ‘I am this; ‘I am that’, ‘No! I am the Church, you are the sect’… And thus who acquires us is he, the father of division. Not the Lord Jesus, who prayed for unity (Jn 17), he prayed! What does the Holy Spirit make? I said he makes something else, which one might think of as division, but it isn’t. The Holy Spirit creates ‘diversity’ in the Church. The First Letter to the Corinthians, chapter 12. He creates diversity! It’s true this diversity is so rich, so beautiful. But then, the same Holy Spirit creates unity, and this way the Church is one in diversity. And, to use a beautiful word of an Evangelist whom I love very much, a diversity ‘reconciled’ by the Holy Spirit. He does both these things: he creates the diversity of charismata and then makes harmony of the charismata… This is unity in diversity. It is on this path that we Christians do what we call by the theological name of ecumenism… Some may be shocked: ‘But the Pope went to the Evangelists!’ He went to visit his brothers! Yes! Because – and what I speak is the truth – they first came to visit me in Buenos Aires. And there is a witness here: Jorge Himitian can tell the story of when they came, they made the approach… And thus this friendship began, this closeness between the pastors of Buenos Aires, and here today. I thank you. I ask you to pray for me, I need it… that at least I won’t be so bad. Thank you!” 
Here Francis clearly teaches that heretical Protestant sects were willed by the Spirit! He also condemns the idea that one group says “I am the Church, you are the sect”! He says that position is from “the father of division”. He thus teaches that it’s of the Devil for the Catholic Church to teach that it alone is the true Church, with non-Catholic sects being false. Francis calls the Protestant “minister”, who is a layman, a “pastor” and “my brother”.
Francis then mentions his closeness with “pastors” of Protestant sects and asks them to pray for him. Francis declares that if these Protestants pray for him he “won’t be so bad”. He is a complete and total apostate.
