Francis’ Recent Heresies
Francis’ March 17, 2013 Angelus address:
“In the past few days I have been reading a book by a Cardinal – Cardinal Kasper, a clever theologian, a good theologian – on mercy.”
Francis praises the apostate “Cardinal” Walter Kasper as a “good theologian”. Kasper believes that “remarried” persons should be allowed to receive Holy Communion. He also does not condemn the use of artificial contraception. Like Francis, Kasper also rejects the necessity for non-Catholics to convert. He even admits that Vatican II abandoned traditional Catholic dogma on that point. Many in the Vatican II “Church” call Kasper, “The Pope’s Theologian”.
Francis’ March 25, 2013 Telegram to Riccardo Di Segni, Chief Rabbi of the Jewish Community in Rome:
“A few days after our meeting, and with renewed gratitude to you for having desired to honor the celebration of the beginning of my ministry with your presence and that of other distinguished members of the Jewish Community, I take great pleasure in extending my warmest best wishes to you and Rome’s entire Jewish community on the occasion of the Great Feast of Pesach. May the Almighty, who freed His people from slavery in Egypt to guide them to the Promised Land, continue to deliver you from all evil and to accompany you with his blessing. I ask you to pray for me while I likewise assure you of my prayers for you, confident that we can deepen our ties of mutual esteem and friendship. ”
Francis gives his best wishes to the rabbi and to Jews as they celebrate their Christ-less “feast”. Antipope Francis then asks God to “continue to deliver you from all evil”. This means (according to Francis) that these Jews who reject Jesus Christ and the entire Catholic faith have already been delivered from evil. Jesus Christ is the only one who can deliver us from evil. Colossians 1:14-15: “Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of the Son of his love, in whom we have redemption through his blood, the remission of sins.” Francis denies the Christian faith. Francis closes his heretical telegram by telling Christ-rejecting Jews that he esteems them. Francis is an apostate.
Francis’ March 18, 2013 message to Justin Welby “Archbishop” of Canterbury:
“I thank you for the kind words contained in your message to me at my election, and I wish in turn to offer my greetings and best wishes on the occasion of your Enthronement at Canterbury Cathedral… Please be assured of my prayers as you take up your new responsibilities, and I ask you to pray for me…”
Justin Welby claims to be the “Archbishop” of Canterbury. He is the current leader of the heretical and schismatic “Church of England”. But Antipope Francis gives this leader of a heretical sect “best wishes” on the occasion of his installation as head of a non-Catholic church. Francis tells Welby: “pray for me”. Besides his numerous heretical and schismatic positions, Arch-heretic Welby supports female “bishops”. Welby has also stated: "I know I need to listen very attentively to the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender) communities…”
Francis’ March 20, 2013 address to representatives of other “churches” and “religions”:
“It is a source of particular joy for me to meet today with you, the delegates of the Orthodox Churches, of the Oriental Orthodox Churches and of the Ecclesial Communities of the West… Yesterday morning, during Holy Mass, through you I felt the spiritual presence of the communities which you represent… I also greet and cordially thank all of you, dear friends who are followers of other religious traditions; first Muslims, who worship God as one, living and merciful, and invoke him in prayer, and all of you, I greatly appreciate your presence: in it, I see a tangible sign of a will to grow in mutual esteem… Dear friends, once again I thank you for your presence…”
Francis praises the schismatic “Orthodox” communities by saying he felt their “spiritual presence”. He then says that he esteems Muslims and that they invoke God in prayer. However, since Muslims reject the Holy Trinity, they do not invoke God.
Francis’ May 10, 2013 greeting to head of the Coptic “Orthodox” church of Egypt:
“…I welcome Your Holiness and the distinguished members of your delegation… Today’s visit strengthens the bonds of friendship and brotherhood that already exist between the See of Peter and the See of Mark, heir to an inestimable heritage of martyrs, theologians, holy monks and faithful disciples of Christ… we are glad to recognize that we are united by one Baptism, of which our common prayer is a special expression… The institution of a ‘National Council of Christian Churches’ which you strongly desired, represents an important sign of the will of all believers in Christ… Your Holiness, in sincerely assuring you of my prayers that the whole flock entrusted to your pastoral care may be ever faithful to the Lord’s call, I invoke the protection of both St Peter and St Mark…”
Francis calls the leader of the schismatic “Orthodox” church “Holiness”. Francis says the schismatics have an “inestimable heritage of martyrs” and “holy monks”. He also states that schismatics are “faithful disciples of Christ”. Francis then praises the building up of an “institution” of non-Catholic churches. Antipope Francis closes off his heretical greeting by stating that God has entrusted His flock to a schismatic.
Francis’ June 8, 2013 Discourse to the president of Italy:
“In the world today freedom of religion is often talked about rather than put into practice… One and all are duty bound to defend religious freedom and to promote it for everyone. The shared protection of this moral good is also a guarantee of the entire community’s growth and development.”
Francis says “all are duty bound” to promote religious freedom for everyone. He says that protecting everyone’s “right” to promote false beliefs about God will be “a guarantee of the entire community’s growth and development.” Francis declares that the propagation of various false religions is a “moral good”. This heretical notion has been condemned by numerous popes as completely contrary to the teaching of the Catholic Church.
Francis’ June 14, 2013 Address to “the Archbishop of Canterbury” Justin Welby:
“Your Grace… pleased and honored as we are… to welcome you ‘not as a guest or a stranger, but as a fellow citizen of the Saints and the Family of God’ (cf. Eph 2:19-20). I know that during Your Grace’s installation in Canterbury Cathedral you remembered in prayer the new Bishop of Rome. I am deeply grateful to you – and since we began our respective ministries within days of each other, I think we will always have a particular reason to support one another in prayer… This journey has been brought about both via theological dialogue, through the work of the Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission, and via the growth of cordial relations at every level through shared daily lives in a spirit of profound mutual respect and sincere cooperation… I am sure this will enable the spiritual, liturgical and pastoral traditions that form the Anglican patrimony to be better known in the Catholic world.”
Francis repeatedly calls the heretical leader of the non-Catholic church “Your Grace”. To be a leader of a heretical “Church” is a “Grace” according to Francis. Francis declares Welby to be “a fellow citizen of the Saints and the Family of God”. Francis is therefore stating emphatically that Welby is a member of the Church of Christ. Antipope Francis then says he is “deeply grateful” that the heretical leader remembered him in his prayers. Francis then says he is happy that the spiritual and liturgical “traditions” of the heretical and schismatic Anglican sect will become better known in the “Catholic” world. He is a complete heretic.
Francis’ June 19, 2013 Catechesis at General Audience:
“So much damage to the Church comes from division among Christians, from biases, from narrow interests. Division among us, but also division among communities: Evangelical Christians, Orthodox Christians, Catholic Christians, why are we divided? We must try to bring about unity. I will tell you something: today, before leaving home, I spent 40 minutes, more or less, half an hour, with an evangelical pastor and we prayed together and sought unity. Because we have to pray together as Catholics and also with other Christians…”
When heretics deny Catholic teaching and leave the Church, they do not injure or damage the Church. They simply leave the Church of Christ.
Pope Leo XIII: “The Church in respect of its unity belongs to the category of things indivisible by nature, though heretics try to divide it into many parts.” (Satis Cognitum #4, June 29, 1896)
Non-Catholics are not part of the Church, and therefore they are not Christians. So, there is no division among real Christians (Catholics). Antipope Francis then mentions that he spent around a half an hour praying with an “evangelical pastor”. It is absolutely forbidden, under pain of mortal sin, to pray with a leader of a non-Catholic church.
Francis’ June 24, 2013 Address to the International Jewish Committee on Interreligious Consultations:
“Dear Brothers and Sisters, Shalom… During my time as Archbishop of Buenos Aires – as the President mentioned – I had the joy of maintaining relations of sincere friendship with leaders of the Jewish world. We talked often of our respective religious identities, the image of man found in the Scriptures, and how to keep an awareness of God alive in a world now secularized in many ways… we welcomed each other, and this helped all of us grow as people and as believers… Humanity needs our joint witness… With this word, Peace – Shalom – I conclude my words, asking for your prayers and assuring you of my own. Thank you.”
Francis claims Christ-rejecting Jews “keep an awareness of God alive”. He says Jews help people “grow” as “believers”. To call Jews who reject Christ, and therefore reject the Father, “believers” is heresy and apostasy. Francis then declares that Jews act as witnesses to humanity for God. At the end of his heretical address, he asks the rejecters of Jesus Christ for their “prayers”.
Francis’ June 28, 2013 Discourse to the “Ecumenical” Patriarchate of Constantinople, led by Eastern “Orthodox Metropolitan” Ioannis (Zizioulas) of Pergamon:
“I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to His Holiness Bartholomaios I and to the Holy Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, who this year have chosen once again to send a high ranking delegation. I ask you, finally, to pray for me – I need your prayers – and to ask your people to pray for me...”
Francis calls the schismatic “Orthodox” synod “holy”. Antipope Francis then asks the schismatic delegation and their schismatic followers to pray for him. Francis exclaims, “I need your prayers” to the schismatics.
