Benedict XVI’s November 15, 2009 Message of condolence to “Orthodox Archbishop” Amfilohije on the news of the death of Serbian “Orthodox” Patriarch Pavle who died recently at age 95: “To His Eminence Amfilohije Archbishop of Cetinje Metropolitan of Montenegro Locum Terens of the Patriarchal Throne Holy Synod of the Serbian Orthodox Church - I received the sorrowful news that the Lord has called to himself His Holiness Pavle, Patriarch of the Serbian Orthodox Church. I would like to offer you, to the Holy Synod and to all the Members of the Church my profound condolences, assuring you of my union in prayer with all who are mourning their Father and Pastor. In his long life at the service of the Gospel, the Late Patriarch bore a witness of faith and spiritual fortitude also in particularly difficult moments, marked by conflicts and wars… May the sorrow at Patriarch Pavle’s passing be transformed into sure hope in his ‘birth in Heaven’, and may his memory continue to inspire vigorous spiritual growth in the people he served with dedication and generosity.”
Benedict XVI states that the Lord Jesus called this schismatic leader to Heaven, and that he (Benedict XVI) is in a union of prayer with the members of the schismatic “Orthodox” Church. Benedict XVI declares the deceased schismatic leader to be a “Father and Pastor” of the true Church of Jesus Christ. He declares that the schismatic had a “long life at the service of the Gospel” and was a “witness of faith.” He then declares that we should have sure hope that this lifelong schismatic leader went immediately to Heaven. He then states that the memory of the schismatic should “continue to inspire vigorous spiritual growth.”
December 4, 2009 Speech of Benedict XVI to “His Beatitude” Anastasios “Archbishop” of Tirana, Albania and other representatives of the “Orthodox” Church of Albania. “Your Beatitude, ‘Grace to you and peace from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ’ (2 Thess 1:2) I am pleased to extend a fraternal welcome to Your Beatitude and to the other distinguished representatives of the Autocephalous Orthodox Church of Albania accompanying you today… During the latter half of the past century, the Christians in Albania, both Orthodox and Catholic, kept the faith alive there in spite of an extremely repressive and hostile atheistic regime; and, as is well known, many Christians paid cruelly for that faith with their lives. The fall of that regime has happily given way to the reconstruction of the Catholic and Orthodox communities in Albania. The missionary activity of Your Beatitude is recognized, particularly in the reconstruction of places and worship, the formation of the clergy and the catechetical work now being done, a movement of renewal which Your Beatitude has rightly described as Ngjallja (Resurrection)… These are timely efforts to promote mutual understanding and tangible cooperation, not only between Catholics and Orthodox, but also among Christians, Muslims and Bektashi. I rejoice with Your Beatitude and with all the Albania people in this spiritual renewal”
Benedict XVI states that the Orthodox “kept the faith alive.” So, to be promoting heresy and schism is “keeping the faith alive.” He’s also happy that the “Orthodox” faith is being reconstructed in Albania. Benedict XVI praises the schismatic missionary activity, including building schismatic churches, training schismatic clergy and promoting heresies and schism.
December 17, 2009 Address to New Ambassador of Finland: “I am pleased to note the increasing cooperation and dialogue between the different Christian communities in Finland. I thank Your Excellency for the greetings that you bring from the Lutheran and Orthodox Archbishops, and I ask you kindly to reciprocate. These signs of growing fraternity among the followers of Christ argue well for the development of mutual understanding and respect between newly arrived immigrants of various religions and their Finnish hosts..”
He states that the Lutherans and “Orthodox” have archbishops. The Catholic Church teaches that Lutherans do not have valid priests or bishops. To call people “archbishops” is to indicate that they are jurisdictional bishops of the one true Church of Jesus Christ.
December 21, 2009 Address to members of the Roman Curia and Papal Representatives in the Vatican: “My visit to Yad Vashem represented an overwhelming encounter with the cruelty of human sin, with the hatred of a blind ideology which, with no justification, consigned millions of human beings to death and thereby, in the end, even wished to eliminate God from the world, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and the God of Jesus Christ.”
He states here that to kill a Jew is to kill God Himself. What a blasphemy!
December 17, 2009 Address to New Ambassador of Sudan: “Public authorities need to ensure that the fundamental human right of religious freedom be truly enjoyed by people of all faiths… Both Muslim and Christian parents share the same affection and concern for their children and their welfare, especially regarding their religious upbringing.” 
December 17, 2009 Address to New Ambassador to Denmark: “Concerning this it is not only the duty of the various religions to emphasize and defend the primacy of the human being and of the human spirit but also of the State. The State is duty-bound to do so mainly through an ambitious policy that provides for all citizens – equal – access to spiritual goods. In fact, these spiritual goods enhance the riches of the social bond and encourage the human being to pursue his spiritual quest. Last Spring, during my Apostolic Visit to the different countries of the Middle East, I suggested on various occasions that religion in general be considered as a ‘new starting point’ for peace. It is true that throughout history religions have often caused conflict. But it is also true that religions which lived according to their profound essence were and are an effective factor for reconciliation and peace. At this historical time religions too, through open and sincere dialogue, must seek the way to purification so as to correspond ever better to their true vocation… The peaceful coexistence of the different religious traditions in each nation is sometimes difficult. Rather than a political problem, this coexistence is also a problem that arises within these traditions themselves. Each believer is called to question God about his will for every human situation. In recognizing God as the one Creator of the human being – of every human being, regardless of his or her religious denomination, social condition or political opinion – each person will respect the other in his oneness and in his difference. Before God there is no category or hierarchy of the human person, inferior or superior, dominating or protected. For him there is only the human being whom he created through love and whom he wants to see living in his family and in society, in brotherly harmony. The discovery of God’s wise plan for the human being leads to recognition of his love. For the believer or person of good will, the resolution of human conflicts, such as the delicate coexistence of the different religions can be transformed into human coexistence in an order full of goodness and wisdom whose origins and dynamism are in God. This coexistence with respect for the nature of things and their inherent wisdom that comes from God - the tranquillitas ordinis - is called peace. Interreligious dialogue makes its own specific contribution to this slow genesis that resists immediate human, political or economic interests. It is sometimes difficult for the political and economic world to give the human being priority; to consider and to admit the importance and need of the religious factor and to guarantee religion its true nature and place in the public dimension is an even more sensitive task. Peace, so longed for, will only be born from the joint action of the individual, who discovers his true nature in God, and of the leaders of civil and religious societies who – with respect for the dignity and faith of each one – will be able to recognize and give to religion its noble and authentic role of fulfilling and perfecting the human person. Here it is a matter of a global recomposition, both temporal and spiritual, that will permit a new start on the path towards the peace that God wishes to be universal.”
Benedict XVI utters the outrageous heresy that all “religions” on planet Earth (which includes Satanism) “are an effective factor for reconciliation and peace.” Benedict states that all “religions” have a true vocation from God! He then says we should respect differences in religious belief regardless of what a person’s religion might be! He says that, in God’s eyes, no one is superior or inferior. He closes off his diabolical address by repeating that we need to respect the false religion of everyone. This is apostasy; the entire speech is an expression of general religious indifferentism.
