Francis’ Recent Heresies
Francis’ October 4, 2013 Message to the World Council of Churches:
“On the occasion of the Tenth General Assembly of the World Council of Churches, I ask you to convey my cordial greetings and good wishes to all gathered in Busan, and in a particular way to the General Secretary, Dr Olav Fykse Tveit, and the representatives of the Christian communities present. I assure you of my close pastoral interest in the deliberations of the Assembly and I willingly reaffirm the commitment of the Catholic Church to continuing its long-standing cooperation with the World Council of Churches… For this reason, I trust that the present Assembly will help to consolidate the commitment of all Christ’s followers to intensified prayer and cooperation in the service of the Gospel… ensure a sound and integral education for the young, and guarantee for all the untrammeled exercise of religious liberty… Upon all gathered in Busan I invoke the abundant blessings of Almighty God, source of all life and of every spiritual gift.”
Antipope Francis promotes the non-Catholic “World Council of Churches”. He says that he has “close pastoral interest in the deliberations of the [Heretical] Assembly”. He then declares that the Catholic Church has a “long-standing cooperation with the World Council of Churches”. Only a non-Catholic sect would have a “long standing cooperation” with a heretical non-Catholic sect. He then indicates that members of the heretical “Council of Churches” are “Christ's followers”. He ends his message by asking the heretical “Council of Churches” to “guarantee untrammeled exercise of religious liberty”. The heretical idea of religious liberty has been specifically condemned by numerous popes. Nevertheless, Francis wants people to have an “untrammeled” right to publicly promote false religions and heresies. Untrammeled means “not restricted or hampered”.
Francis’ October 11, 2013 Message on the 70th anniversary of the deportation of the Jews of Rome:
“Distinguished Chief Rabbi
Esteemed Members of the Jewish Community of Rome,
I wish to join, through spiritual closeness and prayer, in the commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the deportation of the Jews of Rome. As we remember those tragic hours of October 1943, it is our duty to keep before our eyes the fate of those who were deported, to understand their fear, their pain and their desperation in order not to forget them, and to keep them alive in our prayers, along with their families, relatives and friends who mourned their loss…”
Francis considers the followers of the false religion of “Judaism” to be “esteemed”. He then declares his “spiritual closeness” to those who deny Jesus Christ. He ends by saying that we must not forget souls that died in rejection of Jesus, and therefore were darned. He says we must “keep them alive in our prayers,” even though Jesus has revealed that such people do not have life.
Francis’ October 11, 2013 Address to representatives of the Jewish community of Rome:
“Dear Friends of the Jewish Community of Rome, Shalom!
I am pleased to welcome you and to have the opportunity to deepen and expand upon the first meeting that was held with several of your representatives on 20 March. I greet all of you with affection, especially the Chief Rabbi, Dr Riccardo Di Segni… As the Bishop of Rome, I feel particularly close to the life of the city’s Jewish community: I know that with an uninterrupted presence of more than two thousand years, it is Western Europe’s most ancient community. For many centuries then, the Jewish community and the Church of Rome have lived together in this, our city… Paradoxically, the common tragedy of the war has taught us to journey together… The vast majority were not aware of the need to update the Christian understanding of Judaism and perhaps they knew very little about the life of the Jewish community… Here, too, as I often like to emphasize, the People of God have their own nose and they sense the path that God is asking them to take. In this case it is the path of friendship, closeness and fraternity. I hope to contribute here in Rome, as its Bishop, to this closeness and friendship, as I also had the grace – for indeed it was grace – to do with the Jewish community in Buenos Aires. Among the many things that can unite us is our common witness to the truth of the ‘Ten Commandments’, the Decalogue… Dear friends, I wish to thank you for your visit, and with you I invoke the protection and blessing of the Most High upon our common journey of friendship and trust. May he, in his goodness, grant his peace in our day. Thank you.”
Antipope Francis feels “close” to the Christ-rejecting Jewish community. He says that he journeys “together” with Jews. According to him, we need to know more “about the life of the Jewish community”. He thinks we should learn more about the life of those who reject The Life – Jesus Christ.
Antipope Francis then refers to Jews as “the People of God”. He says that Jews “sense the path that God is asking them to take”, even though, in reality, they reject Him (1 John 2:23). He then expresses his “closeness” to those who reject Jesus Christ. Antipope Francis declares more than once that dealing with those who reject Jesus is “grace”. Francis says Jews “witness to the truth of the ‘Ten Commandments’”. Jews reject Jesus Christ, and therefore deny God’s first commandment. Since their rejection of the Son means that they don’t have the Father, they cannot be witnesses to the truth of the Ten Commandments. Francis closes off his message of apostasy by asking for blessings for the “common journey” he is currently on with souls who reject Jesus Christ and the Catholic faith.
Francis’ October 21, 2013 address to delegation of the Lutheran World Federation:
“Dear Lutheran Brothers and Sisters,
Dear Catholic Brothers,
I warmly welcome you, the members of the Lutheran World Federation and the representatives of the Lutheran-Catholic Commission on Unity. This meeting follows upon my very cordial and pleasant meeting with you, dear Bishop Younan, and with the Secretary of the Lutheran World Federation, the Reverend Junge, during the inaugural celebration of my ministry as the Bishop of Rome. It is with a sense of profound gratitude to our Lord Jesus Christ that I think of the many advances made in relations between Lutherans and Catholics in these past decades, not only through theological dialogue, but also through fraternal cooperation in a variety of pastoral settings, and above all, in the commitment to progress in spiritual ecumenism… This year, as a result of a now fifty year old theological dialogue and with a view to the commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, the text of the Lutheran-Catholic Commission on Unity was published, with the significant title: From Conflict to Communion, Lutheran-Catholic Common Commemoration of the Reformation in 2017. I believe that it is truly important for everyone to confront in dialogue the historical reality of the Reformation, its consequences and the responses it elicited... In light of this decades-long journey and of the many examples of fraternal communion between Lutherans and Catholics which we have witnessed, and encouraged by faith in the grace given to us in the Lord Jesus Christ, I am certain that we will continue our journey of dialogue and of communion…”
Francis promotes ecumenism and a positive “commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation”! The so-called “Reformation” was one of the greatest evils in history. It has led to countless souls embracing the heresy of Protestantism and being lost for all eternity. Antipope Francis then expresses the “communion” he holds with Lutherans. The true Catholic Church, however, has declared that it is “joined in no communion” with those who reject Catholic teaching.
Pope St. Leo the Great, Sermon 129: “Wherefore, since outside the Catholic Church there is nothing perfect, nothing undefiled… we are in no way likened with those who are divided from the unity of the Body of Christ; we are joined in no communion.”
Francis’ October 24, 2013 address to a delegation of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, an international Jewish organization:
I welcome this Delegation from the Simon Wiesenthal Center, an international Jewish organization for the defense of human rights. I am aware that this meeting had been planned some time ago by my predecessor Benedict XVI, whom you asked to visit and who remains in our affectionate thoughts and prayers… Today I wish to emphasize that the problem of intolerance must be confronted in all its forms: whenever any minority is persecuted and marginalized because of its religious convictions or ethnic identity, the wellbeing of society as a whole is endangered and each one of us must feel affected… Above all we must be able to transmit a passion for meeting and coming to know others, promoting an active and responsible involvement of our young people. It is here that commitment to the service of society and to those most in need acquires a special value. I encourage you to continue to pass on to the young the importance of working together to reject walls and build bridges between our cultures and our faith traditions. May we go forward with trust, courage and hope! Shalom!”
Francis teaches that if people who promote wicked “religious convictions” are “marginalized”, the “wellbeing of society as a whole is endangered”! This is complete apostasy promoted by Antipope Francis. He then speaks to Christ-rejecting Jews as if they are missionaries for God in the world and solid guides for souls. He is an abominable heretic.
Francis’ October 30, 2013 appeal at General Audience:
“At the end of the Audience I will greet a Delegation of Iraqi Superintendents, with representatives of various religious groups, which make up the wealth of that land. They are accompanied by Cardinal Tauran, President of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue.”
Francis says that the representatives of various false religions from Iraq “make up the wealth of that land”. This is apostasy.
Francis’ November 25, 2013 letter to “Ecumenical Patriarch” on the Feast of St. Andrew:
“To His Holiness Bartholomaios I
Archbishop of Constantinople Ecumenical Patriarch
‘Peace be to the brothers, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ’ (Eph 6:23).
After welcoming with joy the delegation which Your Holiness sent to Rome for the feast of Sts Peter and Paul, it is with the same joy that I convey, through this message entrusted to Cardinal Kurt Koch, President for Promoting Christian Unity, my spiritual closeness on the feast of St Andrew, Peter’s brother and the patron saint of the Ecumenical Patriarchate. With the heartfelt affection reserved for beloved brothers, I offer my prayerful best wishes to Your Holiness, to the members of the Holy Synod, to the clergy, monks and all the faithful, and – together with my Catholic brothers and sisters – join your own prayer on this festive occasion. Your Holiness, beloved brother in Christ, this is the first time that I address you on the occasion of the feast of the Apostle Andrew, the first-called. I take this opportunity to assure you of my intention to pursue fraternal relations between the Church of Rome and the Ecumenical Patriarchate. It is for me a source of great reassurance to reflect on the depth and the authenticity of our existing bonds, the fruit of a grace-filled journey along which the Lord has guided our Churches since the historic encounter in Jerusalem between Pope Paul VI and Patriarch Athenagoras, the 50th anniversary of which we will celebrate shortly. God, the source of all peace and love, has taught us throughout these years to regard one another as members of the same family… United in Christ, therefore, we already experience the joy of authentic brothers in Christ… Today, as then, Christians of East and West must give common witness so that, strengthened by the Spirit of the risen Christ, they may disseminate the message of salvation to the entire world… It is with sentiments of profound esteem and warm friendship in Christ that I invoke abundant blessings on Your Holiness and on all the faithful of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, asking the intercession of the Virgin Mother of God and of the holy apostles and martyrs Peter and Andrew.”
Francis once again declares the leader (and followers) of a heretical and schismatic church to be “holy”. Francis encourages mortal sin by telling “Catholics” to join in prayer with schismatics. He celebrates “existing bonds” with schismatics. He says that he is a member “of the same family”. That clearly means that schismatics are in the Church of Christ. That is totally heretical. He says that the Lord guides the schismatic church. Antipope Francis teaches that schismatics are Christians and that they are “strengthened” by the “Spirit”. Since God only leads people to the truth – the Catholic truth which the schismatics reject – Francis’ statement is an insult to God.
Contrary to what Francis teaches, the Catholic Church teaches that heretics and schismatics are not Christians.
Francis then proclaims that he is “united” with the schismatic, and that the schismatic leader disseminates “the message of salvation to the entire world”. Antipope Francis is a schismatic.
Francis’ November 28, 2013 address at meeting with participants of the “Plenary Assembly of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue”:
“The Catholic Church is aware of the value of promoting friendship and respect among men and women of different religious traditions… The theme chosen for your meeting, ‘Members of different religious traditions in society’, is therefore particularly relevant… Throughout history we have seen the tragedy of narrow-mindedness. The recognition of the fundamental right of religious freedom in all of its dimensions is unavoidable. The Magisterium of the Church has spoken about this with great commitment in recent decades. We are convinced that world peace passes by this route.”
Francis once again promotes “respect” for false religions that lead souls to everlasting darnation. Once again, he also promotes the condemned heresy of religious liberty. Francis says that “the Magisterium” has taught religious freedom “with great commitment”. However, the true Catholic Magisterium has condemned the very heresy which Antipope Francis claims is the teaching of the Magisterium. Francis ends his heretical address by declaring that world peace comes from guaranteeing “the right” to promote false beliefs about God.
Francis’ November 30, 2013 address to Greek-Melkite community:
“In particular, I urge that there be mutual respect between different religious confessions, in order to ensure for all a future based on the inalienable rights of the person, including religious freedom. For centuries, your Church has understood how to live peacefully with other religions and is called to fulfill a role of brotherhood in the Middle East… On this Feast of the Apostle St Andrew, brother of St Peter, my thoughts turn to His Holiness Bartholomaios, Patriarch of Constantinople, and to the Orthodox Churches, so many Sister Churches. Let us pray to the Lord that he help us to proceed on the path of ecumenism, in fidelity to the principles of the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council. May he help you always collaborators to be in evangelization, cultivating an ecumenical and interreligious sensitivity.”
Francis urges respect for non-Catholic “religious confessions”. He says that the Catholic Church needs to live in “brotherhood” with “other religions”. He then identifies heretical and schismatic churches as “Sister Churches”. Antipope Francis proclaims: “let us pray to the Lord” to “proceed on the path of ecumenism” and cultivate “an ecumenical and interreligious sensitivity”. What an apostate!
Francis’ December 6, 2013 telegram upon learning of the death of Nelson Mandela:
“It was with sadness that I learned of the death of former President Nelson Mandela, and I send prayerful condolences to all the Mandela family, to the members of the Government and to all the people of South Africa. In commending the soul of the deceased to the infinite mercy of Almighty God, I ask the Lord to console and strengthen all who mourn his loss... I pray that the late President’s example will inspire generations of South Africans...”
Francis prays for the deceased non-Catholic and communist Nelson Mandela. Antipope Francis prays that the communist’s “example” will “inspire generations”.
Francis’ December 25, 2013 Urbi et Orbi Christmas message:
“We have seen how powerful prayer is! And I am happy today too, that the followers of different religious confessions are joining us in our prayer for peace in Syria. Let us never lose the courage of prayer!”
Francis proclaims how happy he is that people who reject the true God are joining him in prayer. According to Francis, the prayers offered by the followers of false religions are “powerful”. That’s what he proclaims to the city and to the world. Antipope Francis is an apostate.
