Francis’ June 2, 2019 “words at the Regina Coeli”:
“I am grateful to His Beatitude Patriarch Daniel, to the Holy Synod, and to the clergy and faithful of the Romanian Orthodox Church for their fraternal welcome. May the Lord bless this ancient and illustrious Church and sustain it in its mission. [Applause] A fraternal applause for them all!”
Francis calls the schismatic leader “His Beatitude” and their Synod “Holy”. Francis calls the schismatic church an “illustrious Church”. Francis asks God to bless the schismatic church and “sustain it in its mission” of heresy and schism.
Francis’ June 5, 2019 reflection during “General Audience”:
“As Christians, we have the grace of living a season of fraternal relationships among the different Churches. In Romania the majority of the faithful belong to the Orthodox Church... With the Patriarch and the Holy Synod of the Romanian Orthodox Church, we had a very cordial meeting… This important ecumenical dimension of the journey culminated in the solemn prayer of the ‘Our Father’, in the new, imposing Orthodox Cathedral of Bucharest.”
Antipope Francis teaches that in Romania “the majority of the faithful belong to the [schismatic] Orthodox Church”. Therefore, according to Francis, “the faithful” are heretics and schismatics (i.e. people who reject Catholic dogmas and the Catholic Church).
Francis’ May 31, 2019 discourse during meeting in Bucharest “with authorities, diplomatic corps and civil society”:
“My respectful greeting goes likewise to all the Metropolitians and Bishops of the Holy Synod, and to all the faithful of the Romanian Orthodox Church.”
Francis’ May 5, 2019 greeting:
“As evidence of my esteem and affection for this venerable Orthodox Church of Bulgaria, I have had the joy of greeting and embracing my brother, His Holiness Patriarch Neofit and the Metropolitans of the Holy Synod.”
Francis says he has “esteem and affection” for the heretical and schismatic “Orthodox Church”, and declares it to be “venerable”!
Francis’ May 31, 2019 address during meeting “with the permanent Synod of the Romanian Orthodox Church”:
“Your Holiness, Venerable Metropolitians and Bishops of the Holy Synod... Here, as in so many other places nowadays, you have experienced the passover of death and resurrection: how many sons and daughters of this country, from various Churches and Christian communities, knew the Friday of persecution, endured the Saturday of silence and experienced the Sunday of rebirth. How many were the martyrs and confessors of the faith! In recent times, how many, from different confessions, stood side by side in prisons to support one another in turn! Today their example stands before us and before the young… Journeying together with the strength of memory. Not the memory of wrongs endured and inflicted, judgments and prejudices, excommunications that enclose us in a vicious circle and bring only barrenness… Our own journey has begun anew with the certainty that we are brothers and sisters walking side by side, sharing the faith… praying together under the protection of the Holy Mother of God, a time of invoking the Spirit for one another. May the Holy Spirit renew us, for he disdains uniformity and loves to shape unity from the most beautiful and harmonious diversity… Your Holiness and dear Brothers, let us journey together, to the praise of the Most Holy Trinity and for our mutual benefit, as we seek to help our brothers and sisters to see Jesus. I once more assure you of my gratitude and of my own affection, friendship, fraternity and prayer, and that of the Catholic Church.”
Francis starts off by declaring leaders of the schismatic church to be “Venerable”. Francis says “various Churches and Christian communities” have “martyrs and confessors of the faith”! He says “their example” of dying in their false faiths is an “example” which “stands before us and before the young”. Francis then utters the blasphemy that the Holy Spirit (The Spirit of Truth and Unity) “disdains uniformity and loves to shape unity from the most beautiful and harmonious diversity”. Francis closes by assuring the schismatics of his “gratitude” and the “affection” of “the Catholic Church”.
