... Francis became the first pontiff in history to visit a Waldensian evangelical church, when he attended the Waldensian temple in Turin...
“On the part of the Catholic Church, I ask your forgiveness, I ask it for the non-Christian and even inhuman attitudes and behaviour that we have showed you,” said Pope Francis.
He added: “In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, forgive us!”
The Waldensians claim to currently have 45,000 followers, mostly in Italy, Argentina and Uruguay...
In his remarks, Pope Francis said the principle benefit of ecumenism “is the rediscovery of the fraternity that unites all those who believe in Jesus Christ and are baptised in His Name.”
He added: “But the unity that is the fruit of the Holy Spirit does not mean uniformity. Brothers have in common the same origin, but they are not identical among themselves.”...
MHFM Comment: This is outrageous heresy and blasphemy. It of course constitutes another rejection of the Catholic faith and Catholic dogma by Antipope Francis. He is spitting on the teachings and actions of the Catholic Church. Below is a quote from the profession of faith Pope Innocent III prescribed for certain heretics converting from the Waldensian sect. Antipope Francis professes the opposite of what the Catholic Church and its members do.
Pope Innocent III, Eius Exemplo, Profession of Faith prescribed for people coming from the Waldensian Sect, Dec. 18, 1208: "By the heart we believe and by the mouth we confess the one Church, not of heretics but the Holy Roman, Catholic, and Apostolic (Church) outside which we believe that no one is saved."
