Brother Michael Dimond
Francis’ Recent Heresies
Francis’ October 2, 2014 address to Mar Dinkha IV – schismatic “Patriarch of the Assyrian Church of the East”:
Beloved Brothers in Christ,
It is a moment of grace and true joy for me to be able to welcome you here… Through you, I express my greeting in the Lord to the Bishops, the clergy and the faithful of the Assyrian Church of the East… thus may we feel impelled by the Spirit to exchange, from now on, the spiritual treasures of our ecclesial Traditions, in order to live as true brothers, sharing the gifts that the Lord does not cease to bestow on our Churches, as a sign of his goodness and mercy.
Your Holiness, I thank you for your visit and I invoke upon you, your clergy and the faithful entrusted to your pastoral care, through the intercession of the All Holy Mother of God, an abundance of divine blessings.”
Antipope Francis calls followers of the schismatic sect “the faithful”, and he believes that God bestows gifts upon the schismatic church. Francis says that God has “entrusted” these souls to the “pastoral care” of the schismatic leader.
Francis’ October 8, 2014 general audience:
“Divisions among Christians, while they wound the Church, wound Christ; and divided, we cause a wound to Christ...”
Contrary to what Francis teaches, there are no divisions in faith among Christians. That’s because all Christians are united in one faith in the true Catholic Church. The true Catholic Church cannot be divided.
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)
Francis’ October 24, 2014 address to members of the “Orientale Lumen Foundation” - He talked about his upcoming trip to Turkey:
“In the coming days, your pilgrimage will stop at the Phanar, where you will meet the Ecumenical Patriarch, His Holiness Bartholomew I. I ask you to convey to him my warm and brotherly greetings together with the assurance of my affection and my esteem. As you know, I too am preparing to visit the Ecumenical Patriarch in November on the occasion of the Feast of the Apostle St Andrew, in response to the kind invitation of His Holiness Bartholomew. The visit of the Bishop of Rome to the Ecumenical Patriarch and the new meeting between Patriarch Bartholomew and myself will be a sign of the deep bond that unites the Sees of Rome and of Constantinople…”
Francis expresses his esteem for the schismatic “Orthodox” leader, “His Holiness” Bartholomew. He declares the schismatic to be the leader of the “See” of Constantinople. Antipope Francis says there is a “deep bond” that “unites” the “Catholic Church” to the schismatic church in Constantinople. The true Catholic Church has no bond or communion with schismatics.
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 27, 2014 address on inaugurating a bronze bust depicting Benedict XVI. The ceremony took place on the occasion of the “Pontifical Academy of Science’s Plenary Session”, dedicated “to the theme of evolution in the concept of nature”:
“You are addressing the highly complex topic of the evolution of the concept of nature… When we read in Genesis the account of Creation, we risk imagining that God was a magician, with such a magic wand as to be able to do everything. However, it was not like that… The Big-Bang, that is placed today at the origin of the world, does not contradict the divine intervention but exacts it. The evolution in nature is not opposed to the notion of Creation, because evolution presupposes the creation of beings that evolve.”
Antipope Francis promotes the unscientific idea of evolution. Francis says the biblical creation account, according to which God was “able to do everything” without evolution, is wrong. Francis once again mentions a “magic wand”.
Francis’ October 30, 2014 address to delegation of the “Old Catholic” Bishops’ Conference of “the Union of Utrecht”:
“Your Grace,Your Excellencies,
I am pleased to welcome you, the members of the Old Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Union of Utrecht, as your visit offers us a valuable opportunity to reflect on our shared ecumenical journey... In the meantime, in the heart of Europe, which is so confused about its own identity and vocation, there are many areas in which Catholics and Old Catholics can collaborate in meeting the profound spiritual crisis affecting individuals and societies. There is a thirst for God. There is a profound desire to recover a sense of purpose in life. There is an urgent need for a convincing witness to the truth and values of the Gospel. In this we can support and encourage one another, especially at the level of parishes and local communities.”
Here Francis addresses a delegation of the Union of Utrecht of “Old Catholic” churches. This particular Old Catholic group is in “full communion with the Anglican Communion and a member of the World Council of Churches”. This heretical and schismatic group has women “priests” and rejects papal infallibility. They have held “full communion” with the so-called Church of England since 1932. Antipope Francis believes that “the Catholic Church” can “collaborate” with these sect members in the current “spiritual crisis”. Francis declares them to be a “witness to the truth”. He also says that the “Catholic Church” can be supported and encouraged by this heretical and schismatic non-Catholic sect.
Francis’ October 31, 2014 address to members of “the Catholic Fraternity of the Charismatic Renewal”:
“I would like now to reflect upon some themes which I consider important. The first is unity in diversity. Uniformity is not Catholic, it is not Christian. Rather, unity in diversity. Catholic unity is different but it is one: this is curious! The cause of diversity is also the cause of unity: the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit does two things: he creates unity in diversity. Unity does not imply uniformity; it does not necessarily mean doing everything together or thinking in the same way. Nor does it signify a loss of identity. Unity in diversity is actually the opposite: it involves the joyful recognition and acceptance of the various gifts which the Holy Spirit gives to each one and the placing of these gifts at the service of all members of the Church. It means knowing how to listen, to accept differences, and having the freedom to think differently and express oneself with complete respect towards the other who is my brother or sister. Do not be afraid of differences!... The Charismatic Renewal has reminded the Church of the necessity and importance of the prayer of praise. When we speak of the prayer of praise in the Church, Charismatics come to mind… Spiritual ecumenism is praying and proclaiming together that Jesus is Lord, and coming together to help the poor in all their poverty. This must be done while never forgetting in our day that the blood of Jesus, poured out by many Christian martyrs in various parts of the world, calls us and compels us towards the goal of unity. For persecutors, we are not divided, we are not Lutherans, Orthodox, Evangelicals, Catholics…No! We are one in their eyes! For persecutors we are Christians! They are not interested in anything else. This is the ecumenism of blood that we experience today. Remember: seek the unity which is the work of the Holy Spirit and do not be afraid of diversity. The breathing of Christians draws in the new air of the Holy Spirit and then exhales it upon the world: it is the prayer of praise and missionary outreach. Share baptism in the Holy Spirit with everyone in the Church. Spiritual ecumenism and the ecumenism of blood. The unity of the Body of Christ.”
In this heretical rant, Francis teaches that “Catholics” must fully embrace those who hold heretical positions. He shouts, “accept differences!”. He promotes the demonic, non-Catholic “Charismatic Renewal” and their so-called “baptism in the Holy Spirit”. Francis blasphemes the Holy Spirit by saying that He is the author of various heretical and schismatic sects and “Churches”. Francis says there are many non-Catholic martyrs. That is a rejection of the Catholic dogma that there are only Catholic martyrs. At the Council of Florence, Pope Eugene IV infallibly proclaimed that non-Catholics who even shed their blood “for Christ” go to Hell.
Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, “Cantate Domino,” 1441, ex cathedra: “The Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes, and proclaims that none of those existing outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans, but also Jews, heretics and schismatics can become participants in eternal life, but they will depart ‘into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels’ [Matt. 25:41], unless before the end of life they have been added to the flock; and that the unity of this ecclesiastical body is so strong that only for those who abide in it are the sacraments of the Church of benefit for salvation, and do fasts, almsgiving, and other functions of piety and exercises of a Christian soldier produce eternal rewards. No one, whatever almsgiving he has practiced, even if he has shed blood for the name of Christ, can be saved, unless he has persevered within the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church.”
Catholic dogma is exactly the opposite of what the heretic Antipope Francis teaches. Francis says more than once that we shouldn’t be concerned with those who reject various Catholic teachings. Francis teaches “do not be afraid of diversity”, for it is “the new air of the Holy Spirit”. Antipope Francis teaches that the unity of the Body of Christ is a unity between “Catholics” and those “Christians” who reject Catholic teachings. That is a clear profession that Protestants, etc. are in the Body of Christ – a total rejection of Catholic dogma.
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…”
Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos (#9), Jan. 6, 1928: “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.’”
Francis’ November 1, 2014 “Angelus address”:
“Today we praise God for the countless host of saints from all ages: simple and ordinary men and women, who were at times ‘last’ for the world, but ‘first’ for God. At the same time we remember our departed loved ones by visiting the cemeteries: it is a source of great consolation to think that they are in the company of the Virgin Mary, the apostles, the martyrs and all the saints of Heaven!”
Francis here implies that all departed souls (including everyone’s loved ones) are in Heaven. No one is lost or even in Purgatory, according to him.
Francis’ November 7, 2014 address to “the Italian conference of major religious superiors”:
“I would say this is the first thing: to help the Church to grow by way of attraction. Without worrying about proselytizing…”
Francis tells “major religious superiors” that they should not worry about trying to convert others to the Catholic faith (proselytizing). That is apostasy.
Francis’ November 10, 2014 address to “bishops of Senegal, Mauritania, Cape Verde and Guinea-Bissau”:
“… develop a realistic and constructive dialog with Muslims, a dialog ever more necessary to be able to live with them in peaceful coexistence. Indeed, ‘if all of us who believe in God desire to promote reconciliation, justice and peace, we must work together to banish every form of discrimination, intolerance and religious fundamentalism’ (Africae Munus, n. 94).”
Francis teaches that there should be no intolerance for the false teachings of Islam. He also condemns all “religious fundamentalism”.
Francis’ November 20, 2014 address at the offices of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN:
“If we believe in the principle of the unity of the human family, based on the common paternity of God the Creator, and in the fraternity of human beings, no form of political or economic pressure that exploits the availability of foodstuffs can be considered acceptable. Political and economic pressure: here I think of our sister and mother, Earth, our planet, and of whether we are free of political and economic pressure and able to care for her, to avoid her destruction. We have two conferences ahead of us, in Peru and France, which pose the challenge to us of caring for our planet. I remember a phrase that I heard from an elderly man many years ago: God always forgives … our misdemeanours, our abuse, God always forgives; men forgive at times; but the Earth never forgives. We must care for our sister the Earth, our Mother Earth, so that she does not respond with destruction.”
First of all, God doesn’t always forgive. For example, God doesn’t forgive mortal sin unless a true Catholic, with the intention of not committing the sin again, properly confesses the mortal sin to a validly ordained priest. If that doesn’t happen, the person’s mortal sin is not forgiven. Francis says “our Mother” Earth “never forgives”. Antipope Francis says that “Mother Earth” may “respond with destruction” if we are not careful in our dealings with “her”. Francis is teaching that we need to be more worried about “offending” the Earth (as if that is possible) than offending Almighty God. Francis has promoted this kind of pantheistic nonsense in the past. It is completely heretical.
Francis’ November 20, 2014 letter to “the Plenary of the Pontifical Council for Christian Unity”:
“All this has enabled closer contact with other Churches and Ecclesial Communities and new forms of cooperation to be developed. Ecumenical translations of the Sacred Scriptures have been very important in this regard. Christians of different Churches and Ecclesial Communities are working together… continue to trust in God who plants in the hearts of Christians the seeds of love and of unity, in order to confront with renewed momentum today’s ecumenical challenges: to cultivate spiritual ecumenism, to turn to advantage the ecumenism of blood, to walk together on the path of the Gospel. Spiritual ecumenism, which reaches a high point in the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, lives and develops through countless channels… spread the oxygen of the authentic ecumenical spirit through the body of the Church; a network of acts, which see us united and working together in so many works of charity; and it is also a sharing of prayer, of meditation and other texts which circulate on the web and can contribute to raising awareness, respect and mutual esteem. With regard to the ecumenism of blood, Unitatis Redintegratio itself invited that we esteem it by acknowledging the God-given capacity of our brothers and sisters of other Churches and Christian communities to bear witness to Christ even to the supreme sacrifice (cf. n. 4). There has been no shortage of such witnesses in these 50 years and they continue even in our day. It is up to us to welcome them with faith and allow their strength to impel us to convert to an ever fuller brotherhood. Those who persecute Christ in his faithful make no differentiation between confessions: they persecute them simply because they are Christians.”
Francis once again boldly proclaims the heresies of false ecumenism, non-Catholic martyrs, and that non-Catholic “Christians” are Christ’s faithful.
Francis’ November 21, 2014 “Apostolic Letter to men and women religious for the Year of Consecrated Life”:
“In this letter I do not hesitate to address a word to the consecrated men and women and to the members of fraternities and communities who belong to Churches of traditions other than the Catholic tradition. Monasticism is part of the heritage of the undivided Church, and is still very much alive in both the Orthodox Churches and the Catholic Church. The monastic tradition, and other later experiences from the time when the Church in the West was still united, have inspired analogous initiatives in the Ecclesial Communities of the reformed tradition. These have continued to give birth to further expressions of fraternal community and service… Nor can we forget that the phenomenon of monasticism and of other expressions of religious fraternity is present in all the great religions. There are instances, some long-standing, of inter-monastic dialog involving the Catholic Church and certain of the great religious traditions. I trust that the Year of Consecrated Life will be an opportunity to review the progress made, to make consecrated persons aware of this dialog, and to consider what further steps can be taken towards greater mutual understanding and greater cooperation in the many common areas of service…”
This is an “Apostolic Letter” from Antipope Francis – “the head of the Catholic Church”. It purports to be a letter on “consecrated life”. In the letter, the apostate Francis teaches that we can’t forget the “monasticism” present “in all the great religions”. He is referring to things such as the abomination of Buddhist “monks”. Francis promotes “inter-monastic dialog” and “greater cooperation” with the “consecrated” of non-Christian “religions”. He once again fully endorses Protestantism and even promotes Protestant and “reformed” monastic-like movements. He is a total apostate!
Francis’ November 22, 2014 address to the fourth “National Missionary Conference of the Church in Italy”:
“In the Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium, I spoke of a ‘Church which goes forth’. A missionary Church cannot help but ‘go forth’, without fear to meet, to discover the novel, to speak of the joy of the Gospel. To all, without distinction. Not to proselytize…”
Here Francis is addressing a “missionary conference”. Francis says attempting to convert people is not a part of missionary activity. Real Catholics know that missionary activity is, by definition, the work of trying to convert non-Catholics to the Catholic faith. Francis also tells them to go forth and “discover the novel”.
Francis’ November 25, 2014 address to the European Parliament and to the Council of Europe:
“Practically all of Europe is present in this hall, with its peoples, its languages, its cultural and religious expressions, all of which constitute the richness of this continent… In light of all this, I am gratified by the desire of the Council of Europe to invest in intercultural dialog, including its religious dimension, through the Exchange on the Religious Dimension of Intercultural Dialog. Here is a valuable opportunity for open, respectful and enriching exchange between persons and groups of different origins and ethnic, linguistic and religious traditions, in a spirit of understanding and mutual respect.” 
Francis says that the different false religions present in Europe make up the “richness” of that continent.
Francis’ November 26, 2014 “catechesis” at his general audience:
“This is the Church’s destination: it is, as the Bible says, the ‘new Jerusalem’, ‘Paradise’. More than a place, it is a ‘state’ of soul in which our deepest hopes are fulfilled in superabundance and our being, as creatures and as children of God, reach their full maturity. We will finally be clothed in the joy, peace and love of God, completely, without any limit, and we will come face to face with Him! (cf. 1 Cor 13:12). It is beautiful to think of this, to think of Heaven. We will all be there together. It is beautiful, it gives strength to the soul.”
Francis says Heaven is a “state” of soul in which “all” will be there together. This seems to be very similar to what the apostate Antipope John Paul II taught on this subject.
Francis’ November 27, 2014 address to “pastors at the International Pastoral Congress”:
“In urban pastoral care, quality will come from the capacity of the Church and of every Christian to bear witness. When Pope Benedict said that the Church does not grow through proselytism but through attraction, he was speaking about this.”
Here Francis tells us that the Vatican II sect’s idea of bearing witness to the faith means not trying to convert non-Catholics. Francis once again quotes his apostate pal, Antipope Benedict XVI.
Francis’ November 28, 2014 address to Turkish political authorities:
“Freedom of religion and freedom of expression, when truly guaranteed to each person, will help friendship to flourish and thus become an eloquent sign of peace… Mr President, interreligious and intercultural dialog can make an important contribution to attaining this lofty and urgent goal, so that there will be an end to all forms of fundamentalism and terrorism which gravely demean the dignity of every man and woman and exploit religion. Fanaticism and fundamentalism, as well as irrational fears which foster misunderstanding and discrimination, need to be countered by the solidarity of all believers. This solidarity must rest on the following pillars: respect for human life and for religious freedom, that is the freedom to worship and to live according to the moral teachings of one’s religion…”
Here Antipope Francis condemns Catholic “fundamentalism”. Francis calls Muslims “believers”. Francis promotes the condemned heresies of freedom of religion, expression, worship, and living “according to the moral teachings of one’s [false] religion”.
Francis’ November 28, 2014 address to the “President of Religious Affairs in Turkey and Muslim and Christian political and religious leaders”:
“I thank the President of this distinguished office for his cordial invitation which affords me the opportunity to share these moments with political and religious leaders, both Muslim and Christian. It is a tradition that Popes, when they visit different countries as part of their mission, meet also with the leaders and members of various religions. Without this openness to encounter and dialog, a Papal Visit would not fully correspond to its purposes… Good relations and dialog between religious leaders have, in fact, acquired great importance. They represent a clear message addressed to their respective communities which demonstrates that mutual respect and friendship are possible… Christians and Yazidis, have suffered and continue to suffer barbaric violence simply because of their ethnic and religious identity. They have been forcibly evicted from their homes, having to leave behind everything to save their lives and preserve their faith. This violence has also brought damage to sacred buildings, monuments, religious symbols and cultural patrimony… In a unique way, religious leaders can offer a vital contribution by expressing the values of their respective traditions. We, Muslims and Christians, are the bearers of spiritual treasures of inestimable worth. Among these we recognize some shared elements, though lived according to the traditions of each, such as the adoration of the All-Merciful God, reference to the Patriarch Abraham, prayer, almsgiving, fasting… elements which, when lived sincerely, can transform life and provide a sure foundation for dignity and fraternity. Recognizing and developing our common spiritual heritage – through interreligious dialog – helps us to promote and to uphold moral values, peace and freedom in society… Following my meeting with the President, I am also hopeful that this interreligious dialog will take on creative new forms. Mr President, I renew my gratitude to you and your colleagues for this meeting, which fills my heart with joy. I am grateful also to each one of you, for your presence and for your prayers which, in your kindness, you offer for me and my ministry.”
In this speech Francis decries the destruction of “sacred” buildings, monuments, and religious symbols belonging to false religions like Yazidism. The Yazidis are “a Kurdish ethno-religious community whose syncretic but ancient religion Yazidism is linked to Zoroastrianism and ancient Mesopotamian religions”. Francis proclaims that “Muslims and Christians, are the bearers of spiritual treasures of inestimable worth such as the adoration of the All-Merciful God”. Muslims deny that Jesus is God, yet Antipope Francis says they adore God. This is apostasy from the Catholic faith. Francis says Islamic “prayer, almsgiving, fasting” are elements that “can transform life”. Antipope Francis goes on to say that we have a “common spiritual heritage” with Muslims and that Muslims “uphold moral values”. Muslims allow a man to have up to four “wives”, among other things. That’s upholding moral values, according to the apostate Francis. At the end of his heretical speech, Francis says that he is “grateful” for the “prayers” of Muslim “religious leaders”. This is more pure evil promoted by Antipope Francis.
Francis’ November 29, 2014 address during “Ecumenical Prayer Service” with schismatic “Orthodox leader” Bartholomew:
“Your Holiness, my dear Brother,
Each evening brings a mixed feeling of gratitude for the day which is ending and of hope-filled trust as night falls. This evening my heart is full of gratitude to God who allows me to be here in prayer with Your Holiness and with this sister Church after an eventful day during my Apostolic Visit... With this joyful hope, filled with gratitude and eager expectation, I extend to Your Holiness and to all present, and to the Church of Constantinople, my warm and fraternal best wishes on the Feast of your holy Patron. And I ask a favour of you: to bless me and the Church of Rome.”
Francis proclaims that the heretical and schismatic church in Constantinople is the true Church of Jesus Christ in Constantinople. Antipope Francis asks “His Holiness”, the leader of the schismatic “Church”, to bless him and the “Catholic Church”. Antipope Francis is a schismatic.
Francis’ November 30, 2014 common declaration with “Patriarch” Bartholomew:
“We, Pope Francis and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I, express our profound gratitude to God for the gift of this new encounter enabling us, in the presence of the members of the Holy Synod, the clergy and the faithful of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, to celebrate together the feast of Saint Andrew, the first–called and brother of the Apostle Peter… To this end, we offer the assurance of our fervent prayer as Pastors of the Church, asking our faithful to join us in praying ‘that all may be one, that the world may believe’ (Jn 17:21)… we also recognize the importance of promoting a constructive dialog with Islam based on mutual respect and friendship. Inspired by common values and strengthened by genuine fraternal sentiments, Muslims and Christians are called to work together for the sake of justice, peace and respect for the dignity and rights of every person… Our thoughts turn to all the faithful of our Churches throughout the world, whom we greet…”
In his public declaration of “faith”, Francis teaches that an openly schismatic leader is a “pastor of the Church”. Francis says we are “called to work together” with Muslims with “respect”, “inspired by common values”. Francis also calls schismatics “the faithful”, and asks to join in prayer with them.
Francis’ November 30, 2014 responses to questions from journalists on the return flight from Turkey:
Yasemin Taskin, Turkish television: “President Erdogan spoke about ‘Islamophobia’…Taking interreligious dialog into consideration as well, what more can be done? That is, is interreligious dialog enough? Can more be done?”
Francis: “On Islamophobia: It's true that there has been a reaction to these acts of terrorism, not just in this region but in Africa as well: ‘If this is Islam it makes me angry!’. So many Muslims feel offended, they say: ‘But that is not what we are. The Quran is a prophetic book of peace. This is not Islam’. I can understand this. And I sincerely believe that we cannot say all Muslims are terrorists, just as we cannot say that all Christians are fundamentalists – we also have fundamentalists among us, all religions have these small groups. I told the President [Erdogan] that it would be good to issue a clear condemnation against these kinds of groups. All religious leaders, scholars, clerics, intellectuals and politicians should do this. This way they hear it from their leaders' mouth. There needs to be international condemnation from Muslims across the world. It must be said, ‘no, this is not what the Quran is about!’... We need to take this qualitative leap, we need to bring about a dialog between religious figures of different faiths. This is a beautiful thing: men and women who meet other men and women and share experiences. We are not just talking about theology but religious experience. And this would be a beautiful step forward, beautiful. I really enjoyed that meeting. It was excellent.”
Antipope Francis repeats what many Muslims say: “The Quran is a prophetic book of peace”. Francis doesn’t say he disagrees with that conclusion, but “can understand” those who would make that statement. Francis once again publicly condemns Catholic “fundamentalism”. He wants others to condemn it as well. Francis calls for a “dialog between religious figures of different faiths”, and says “we are not just talking about theology but religious experience”. This is modernism and apostasy.
Esma Cakir, Information Agency of Turkey: “What was the significance of that moment of such intense prayer that you had in the Mosque? Was it, for you, a way of turning to God? Is there something in particular that you would like to share with us?”
Francis: “I went to Turkey as a pilgrim, not a tourist. And I went especially for today’s feast. I went precisely in order to celebrate it with Patriarch Bartholomew. It was for a religious reason. But then, when I entered the Mosque, I couldn't say: now, I’m a tourist! No, it was completely religious. And I saw that wonder! The Mufti explained things very well to me, with such meekness, and using the Quran… He explained it all to me... At that moment I felt the need to pray. So I asked him: ‘Shall we pray a little?’. To which he responded: ‘Yes, yes’. I prayed for Turkey, for peace, for the Mufti, for everyone and for myself, as I need it … I prayed, sincerely...”
Antipope Francis answers a question about his visit to the mosque by saying that it was a religious experience. He explains that he was taught by the Islamic mufti from the Quran. Francis clearly admits that his reason for going into the mosque “was completely religious”. Francis describes being taught by the Muslim leader saying, “he explained it all to me”. At this point, Francis said he was so moved while in the mosque that he asked to pray with the Islamic leader. Francis says, “I felt the need to pray”. St Thomas Aquinas taught that if anyone were to worship at the tomb of Mohammed he would be deemed an apostate. Antipope Francis’ recent action without any doubt proves that he’s an apostate.
Alexey Bukalov of Russia: “Your Holiness, in thanking you for what you have done for the orthodox world, I would like to know, after this visit, and after this extraordinary meeting with the Patriarch of Constantinople, what is the outlook for relations with the Patriarchate of Moscow?”
Francis: “Last month, [Metropolitan] Hilarion attended the Synod as a delegate of Patriarch Kirill… Unity is a journey we have to take, but we need to do it together. This is spiritual ecumenism: praying together, working together. There are so many works of charity, so much work... Teaching together... Moving forward together. This is spiritual ecumenism. Then there is an ecumenism of blood: when they kill Christians, we have so many martyrs... starting with those in Uganda, canonized 50 years ago: half were Anglican, half Catholic, but the ones [who killed them] didn't say: ‘You're Catholic... you're Anglican...’ No: ‘You are Christian’, and so their blood mixed. This is the ecumenism of blood. Our martyrs are crying out: ‘We are one! We already have unity, in spirit and in blood’. I don't know if I told you the anecdote about Hamburg, which I heard from the parish priest of Hamburg. Did I tell you? When I was in Germany, I went to Hamburg to celebrate a baptism, and the parish priest was working on the cause for canonization of a priest who had been guillotined by the Nazis for having taught catechesis to the children. During his work on this cause, he discovered that in line behind the priest in question, there was a Lutheran pastor condemned to the guillotine for the same reason. The blood of these two mixed. And this parish priest went to the bishop and said: ‘I'm not taking this cause forward only for the priest: it's either for both or for neither!’. This is ecumenism of blood, which helps us so much, which tells us so much... I’ll say something that a few, perhaps, are not able to understand: the Eastern Catholic Churches have a right to exist, but uniatism is a dated word. We cannot speak in these terms today. We need to find another way. Now, ‘we land’ in Moscow. I told Patriarch Kirill, and he agreed, there is a willingness to meet. I told him: ‘I'll go wherever you want, you call me and I’ll come’; and he too wants this… Hilarion suggested that the commission, for which he presides over the Russian Orthodox part, hold a study meeting on the question of Primacy. We have to continue in the footsteps of John Paul II: ‘Help me to find a form of Primacy that we can agree on’. This is what I can tell you.” 
Antipope Francis answers a question about the “Orthodox” (who reject the Catholic faith) by saying we need to pray, work, teach, and move forward together. Francis teaches that we “already have unity, in spirit and in blood” with non-Catholics. The Catholic Church teaches that unity only exists in the true Catholic Church. Francis once again teaches that there are non-Catholic martyrs, and that Anglicans “saints” were “canonized 50 years ago”. This is totally heretical and condemned by the infallible teaching of true Catholic popes. He even says that it was good for a “parish priest” to push for the canonization of a Lutheran “pastor”!
Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, “Cantate Domino,” Session 11, 1441, ex cathedra: “… no one, whatever almsgiving he has practiced, even if he has shed blood for the name of Christ, can be saved, unless he has remained within the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church.”
Pope Pelagius II, epistle (2) Dilectionis vestrae, 585: “Those who were not willing to be at agreement in the Church of God, cannot remain with God; although given over to flames and fires, they burn, or thrown to wild beasts, they lay down their lives, there will not be for them that crown of faith, but the punishment of faithlessness, not a glorious result (of religious virtue), but the ruin of despair. Such a one can be slain; he cannot be crowned.”
Antipope Francis then teaches that “uniatism” is “a dated word”. Francis insists that “we cannot speak in these terms today”. Uniatism is “the union of an Eastern Rite church with the Roman Church in which the authority of the Papacy is accepted”. So, the schismatic Francis is publicly declaring that having the schismatic churches accept the Papacy is outdated teaching. This is another public rejection of the Papacy by Francis. Francis then talks about how he told schismatic “Patriarch” Kirill: “I'll go wherever you want, you call me and I’ll come”. “Pope” Francis will go wherever the schismatic leader wants him to go. Francis’ desire to please the schismatic leader is like an obedient dog responding to the call of his owner. This is Francis’ idea of how a “pope” runs “the Catholic Church” – conforming immediately to the desires of those who lead heretical and schismatic sects. Francis then says that he’s open to a change in Catholic teaching on the Papacy. Francis wants to find “a form of Primacy that we can agree on”. Francis is willing to further deny the Papacy to appease the schismatic “Orthodox” church. What an abomination.
Mimmo Muolo, of Avvenire: “I was struck by a phrase you used this morning during the Divine Liturgy: ‘I want to assure each one of you here that, to reach the desired goal of full unity, the Catholic Church does not intend to impose any conditions’. We would like to ask you to more fully explain this phrase, if possible, and whether it was in regard to the issue of Primacy, to which you referred earlier.”
Francis: “That is not a condition: it's an agreement, because they too want it; it's an agreement to find a form that is more closely in line with that of the first centuries… the Church has the shortcoming, the sinful habit of focusing too much on herself… And when the Church focuses too much on herself, divisions arise. And that's what happened after the first millennium. At the table today, Bartholomew and I were talking about the moment when a cardinal – I don't remember which one – went to convey the Pope’s excommunication to the Patriarch: the Church was focusing on herself too much at that moment! She wasn't looking to Jesus Christ. I believe that all these problems which arise between us, among Christians – at least speaking about our Catholic Church – come from focusing on oneself: we become self-referential.”
Here Francis says again that he wants an agreement (on the meaning of the Papacy) with the “Orthodox” that will be “more closely in line with that of the first centuries”. This denies Vatican I, which taught that Catholic truth on the Papacy was held in all generations of Church history. Francis’ statement clearly means “a form” of the “Papacy” that is in line with the schismatic “Orthodox” teaching on this issue. People need to consider this carefully, for it’s an unbelievable denial of the papal office. Next, Antipope Francis says the Holy Catholic Church has sin – that it has a “sinful habit”. The “sin,” according to Francis, is the teaching of Vatican I on the requirement of all professing Christians to accept papal primacy. Francis is calling Vatican I “sin”.
Pope Hadrian I, Second Council of Nicaea, 787: “… Christ our God, when He took for His Bride His Holy Catholic Church, having no blemish or wrinkle, promised he would guard her and assured His holy disciples saying, I am with you every day until the consummation of the world.”
Francis says the Catholic Church “focuses too much on herself” and should also focus on the other heretical and schismatic churches. Francis then condemns Pope Saint Leo IX’s excommunication of Michael Cerularius, the “Patriarch” of Constantinople. An interesting fact to consider about this event is that Pope Saint Leo IX refused to call Cerularius “Ecumenical Patriarch". Yet, Francis and the other Vatican II antipopes repeatedly referred to the schismatic leaders of the “Orthodox” church of Constantinople as “Ecumenical Patriarch".
Francis’ November 30, 2014 address “at the conclusion of the Liturgy”:
“Your Holiness, beloved brother Bartholomew,
When I was the Archbishop of Buenos Aires, I often took part in the celebration of the Divine Liturgy of the Orthodox communities there. Today, the Lord has given me the singular grace to be present in this Patriarchal Church of Saint George for the celebration of the Feast of the holy Apostle Andrew, the first-called, the brother of Saint Peter, and the Patron Saint of the Ecumenical Patriarchate. Meeting each other, seeing each other face to face, exchanging the embrace of peace, and praying for each other, are all essential aspects of our journey towards the restoration of full communion… I believe that it is important to reaffirm respect for this principle as an essential condition, accepted by both, for the restoration of full communion, which does not signify the submission of one to the other, or assimilation. Rather, it means welcoming all the gifts that God has given to each…”
Francis tells the schismatic leader that, when he was the “Archbishop” of Buenos Aires, he “often took part in the celebration of the Divine Liturgy of the Orthodox communities there”. The Catholic Church has taught throughout history that to take part in a schismatic liturgy is a mortal sin. For example, if anyone looked at almost any moral theology manual before Vatican II, they would see that it clearly states that active participation in a non-Catholic service is a mortal sin. Francis speaks proudly of the mortal sins he “often took part in” back in Buenos Aires. Francis then asks the schismatics to pray for him. Francis explains what “the restoration of full communion” means to the leaders of the Vatican II sect. It means that the schismatics don’t need to submit to the Papacy or to any teachings of the Catholic Church they don’t agree with. Francis says that we must welcome “all the gifts that God has given” to the schismatic “Orthodox” church.
We have again reached the end of another examination of Antipope Francis’ heresies. Consider the magnitude of Francis’ rejection of the Papacy in these heresies. He openly and repeatedly teaches that a pope is not to be recognized as the one with supreme authority in the Church. The dogma of the Papacy is not only that one man has supreme authority in the Church, but that everyone else in the Church must accept that authority. Antipope Francis teaches that the “Orthodox” and Protestants are not to accept the jurisdictional authority of St. Peter and his successors. That is an open rejection of the dogma of the Papacy. One could not ask for a more explicit example of heresy. To say that he is not a heretic, as the false traditionalists do, is an incredible blasphemy.
Yet, it has become obvious to me that most “Catholics” who have seen Francis’ heresies in word and deed, and still regard him as a Catholic, will never change their position, even if he taught heresy 50,000 times. That’s because they are faithless. Externals are more important to them than the teaching of Jesus Christ and His Church. They simply reject the Church’s teaching that only those who profess the true faith can be considered in the Church. For more detailed information on this subject, see this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmV8-TDjwKo or this article: Catholic Teaching On Heresy, Judging Heretics, and Sedevacantism - Refuting False Traditionalists.
Pope Pius XII, Mystici Corporis Christi (#22). “Actually only those are to be included as members of the Church who have been baptized and profess the true faith.”
The fact that Francis clearly rejects defined Catholic teaching on the Papacy - by teaching that the “Orthodox” don’t need to submit to the Papacy - is all one should need to see. It proves (without any doubt) that Francis is a heretic and that he does not profess the true faith. He does not teach that the faith of Rome is to be held. Therefore, he cannot be considered a Catholic in the Church.
Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum (# 13), June 29, 1896: “You are not to be looked upon as holding the true Catholic faith if you do not teach that the faith of Rome is to be held.”
Pope Pius XII, Mystici Corporis Christi (# 23), June 29, 1943: “For not every offense, although it may be a grave evil, is such as by its very own nature to sever a man from the Body of the Church, as does schism or heresy or apostasy.”
It’s noteworthy that many of the false traditionalists, who obstinately reject the true position on this matter, are quite vocal in rejecting pro-abortion politicians as “not Catholic” and as “heretics”. Yet, Francis and the other Vatican II antipopes have taught heresies hundreds of times on matters that are every bit as dogmatic as the Church’s condemnation of abortion. The Church has also always taught that those who are public heretics are outside the Church and must be regarded as such. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be one faith in the Church.
Pope Boniface VIII, Unam Sanctam, Nov. 18, 1302: “One is my dove, my perfect one… which represents the one mystical body… And in this, ‘one Lord, one faith, one baptism’ (Eph. 4:5).”
In fact, the dogmas Francis denies have been defined more frequently than the Church’s opposition to abortion. But that fact doesn’t make any difference to those false traditionalists. Almost every month or week they will come out and complain or laugh about Francis’ latest blasphemy. They will endlessly whine about how Francis’ outrageous teaching is contrary to what true popes have taught throughout history. They will mock his false teaching and his false faith, failing to realize that they are only mocking themselves; for by recognizing him as a Catholic and the leader of the faithful, they simultaneously profess that his “faith” (and thus what they mock) is true. Nevertheless, since they are evil, they will continue to profess that the wolf (Francis) has authority over the sheep, and that he is not a heretic.
Their position is wicked, heretical, theologically ridiculous, and spiritually bankrupt. They are on the road to Hell, and they lead others to Hell. Those who hold this position (promoting heretics as Catholics) and those who follow such blind guides, who don’t serve Jesus Christ or believe in His faith, will pay the ultimate price in the eternal lake of fire.
Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum, June 29, 1896: “… can it be lawful for anyone to reject any of those truths without thereby sending himself headlong into open heresy? without thereby separating himself from the Church and in one sweeping act repudiating the entirety of Christian doctrine?…”
Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum, June 29, 1896: “… it is absurd to imagine that he who is outside the Church can command in the Church.”
