It is now time to return to the interview that Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis gave to Eugenio Scalfari of La Repubblica:
Scalfari: The meeting with Pope Francis took place
last Tuesday at his home in Santa Marta, in a small bare room with a
table and five or six chairs and a painting on the wall. It had been
preceded by a phone call I will never forget as long as I live.
was half past two in the afternoon. My phone rings and in a somewhat
shaky voice my secretary tells me: "I have the Pope on the line. I'll
put him through immediately."
I was still stunned when I heard
the voice of His Holiness on the other end of a the line saying, "Hello,
this is Pope Francis." "Hello Your Holiness", I say and then, "I am
shocked I did not expect you to call me." "Why so surprised? You wrote
me a letter asking to meet me in person. I had the same wish, so I'm
calling to fix an appointment. Let me look at my diary: I can't do
Wednesday, nor Monday, would Tuesday suit you?"
I answer, that's fine.
time is a little awkward, three in the afternoon, is that okay?
Otherwise it'll have to be another day." Your Holiness, the time is
fine. "So we agree: Tuesday 24 at 3 o'clock. At Santa Marta. You have to
come into the door at the Sant'Uffizio."
I don't know how to end
this call and let myself go, saying: "Can I embrace you by phone?" "Of
course, a hug from me too. Then we will do it in person, goodbye."
here I am. The Pope comes in and shakes my hand, and we sit down. The
Pope smiles and says: "Some of my colleagues who know you told me that
you will try to convert me."
Scalfari: It's a joke, I tell him. My friends think it is you want to convert me.
smiles again and replies: "Proselytism is solemn nonsense, it makes no
sense. We need to get to know each other, listen to each other and
improve our knowledge of the world around us. Sometimes after a meeting I
want to arrange another one because new ideas are born and I discover
new needs. This is important: to get to know people, listen, expand the
circle of ideas. The world is crisscrossed by roads that come closer
together and move apart, but the important thing is that they lead
towards the Good." (The Antipope: how the Church will change - Repubblica.it.)
Jorge Mario Bergoglio is of the devil. He hath not the Catholic Faith. In other words, he is totally bereft of the Catholic Faith. He is an arrogant, proud little devil. That is all that this man is. Indeed, as will be seen in part three later day, the Antipope boats of his "humility," which is in and of itself a testimony to his overweening pride from his own lips.
Leaving aside points that have been made in other articles recently, including in Francis: Apostle of Antichrist, part one, Francis: Apostle of Antichrist, part two and Francis: Apostle of Antichrist, part three, that our true popes neve gave interviews and they never preached every day of the week and they did not have their every "random thought" published far and wide, speaking and writing in measured terms as they carried themselves with the royal dignity that is befitting the Vicar of Our Lord Jesus Christ on earth and the Successor of Saint, the very visible head of the one true Church, the Catholic Church, Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis's disparagement of what he calls "proselytism" as "solemn nonsense" that makes "no sense" is blasphemous heresy.
Perhaps it is best to start with the mandate that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ gave to the Apostles on Ascension Thursday before He Ascended to His Co-Equal and Co-Eternal God the Father's right hand in glory forty days after His glorious Resurrection from the dead on Easter Sunday:
And the eleven disciples went into Galilee, unto the mountain where
Jesus had appointed them. And seeing him they adored: but some doubted.
And Jesus coming, spoke to them, saying: All power is given to me in
heaven and in earth. Going therefore, teach ye all nations; baptizing
them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and
behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world.
(Matthew 28: 16-20.)
"Solemn nonsense" that makes "no sense."
Perhaps those who keep who keep repeating that there has never been a period in the history of the Catholic Church when the See of Peter has been vacant for over half a century as some kind of "proof" that God would never permit a "super-long" papal vacancy (please see a refutation of this sloganistic canard as offered by late Father Martin Stepanich, O.F.M., S.T.D., An Objection to Sedevacantism: 'Perpetual Successors' to Peter; for another brilliant Father Stepanich letter, one that summarizes the sedevacantist case so very clearly, see: Father Stepanich Letter on Sedevacantism), when it is not sort of "proof" whatsoever, would like to give some "precedents" for a true and legitimate Successor of Saint Peter calling "proselytism" as "solemn nonsense" that makes "no sense."
There is, however, plenty of precedent within the counterfeit church of conciliarism for terming the seeking of converts to the true Faith as "proselytism" (which implies in the conciliar usage a process requiring fear, force and fraud) rather the simple missionary work of the Catholic Church in perfect obedience to her Mystical Spouse and Invisible Head, Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and there is plenty of precedent for the rejection of "proselytism" by the conciliar "popes" themselves.
Perhaps a few examples are in order to demonstrate that Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis is in perfect continuity and full, active and conscious communion with his two immediate predecessors, Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II and Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, and is in complete conformity with the teaching of his counterfeit church of conciliarism as found in the Vatican Ecumenical Directory:
1. I am very pleased to have this opportunity during my visit to Sri Lanka to meet representatives of the various religions which have lived together in harmony for a very long time on this Island: especially Buddhism, present for over two thousand years, Hinduism, also of very long standing, along with Islam and Christianity. This simultaneous presence of great religious traditions is a source of enrichment for Sri Lankan society. At the same time it is a challenge to believers and especially to religious leaders, to ensure that religion itself always remains a force for harmony and peace. On the occasion of my Pastoral Visit to the Catholics of Sri Lanka, I wish to reaffirm the Church’s, and my own, deep and abiding respect for the spiritual and cultural values of which you are the guardians.
Especially since the Second Vatican Council, the Catholic Church has been fully committed to pursuing the path of dialogue and cooperation with the members of other religions.
Interreligious dialogue is a precious means by which the followers of
the various religions discover shared points of contact in the spiritual
life, while acknowledging the differences which exist between them. The
Church respects the freedom of individuals to seek the truth and to
embrace it according to the dictates of conscience, and in this light she firmly rejects proselytism and the use of unethical means to gain conversions. (Meeting with representatives of other religions (January 21, 1995)
3. Catholics are invited to respond according to the directives of their
pastors, in solidarity and gratitude with the efforts that are being made in
many Churches and ecclesial Communities, and in the various organizations in
which they cooperate, to reestablish the unity of Christians. Where ecumenical
work is not being done, or not being done effectively, Catholics will seek to
promote it. Where it is being opposed or hampered by sectarian attitudes and
activities that lead to even greater divisions among those who confess the name
of Christ, they should be patient and persevering. At times, local Ordinaries,39
Synods of Eastern Catholic Churches and Episcopal Conferences may find it
necessary to take special measures to overcome the dangers of indifferentism or proselytism. This may especially be needed in the case of young
Churches. In all their contacts with members of other Churches and ecclesial
Communities, Catholics will act with honesty, prudence and knowledge of the
issues. This readiness to proceed gradually and with care, not glossing over
difficulties, is also a safeguard against succumbing to the temptations of
indifferentism and proselytism, which would be a failure of the true ecumenical
spirit. . . . .
79. Even though an ecumenical dimension should permeate all theological
formation, it is of particular importance that a course in ecumenism be given at
an appropriate point in the first cycle. Such a course should be compulsory. In
broad and adaptable terms, it might have the following content:
a) the notions of catholicity, of the visible and organic unity of
the Church, of the oecumene, ecumenism; from their historical origins to
the present meaning from the Catholic viewpoint;
b) the doctrinal basis of ecumenical activity with particular
reference to the already existing bonds of communion between Churches and
ecclesial Communities; 94
c) the history of ecumenism, which includes that of the divisions
and of the many attempts during the ages to reestablish unity, their
achievements and failures, the present state of the search for unity;
d) the purpose and method of ecumenism, the various forms of union
and of collaboration, the hope of re-establishing unity, the conditions of
unity, the concept of full and perfect unity;
e) the "institutional" aspect and the contemporary life in
the various Christian Communities: doctrinal tendencies, the real causes of
separations, missionary efforts, spirituality, forms of worship, need for better
knowledge of Eastern theology and spirituality; 95
f) some more specific problems such as shared worship, proselytism
and irenicism, religious freedom, mixed marriages, the role of the laity and, in
particular, of women in the Church;
g) spiritual ecumenism, especially the significance of prayer for
unity and other forms of tending towards the unity prayed for by Christ. . . .
125. Catholic ministers may lawfully administer the sacraments of penance,
Eucharist and the anointing of the sick to members of the Eastern Churches, who
ask for these sacraments of their own free will and are properly disposed.
In these particular cases also, due consideration should be given to the
discipline of the Eastern Churches for their own faithful and any suggestion of
proselytism should be avoided.
126. Catholics may read lessons at a sacramental liturgical celebration in
the Eastern Churches if they are invited to do so. An Eastern Christian may be
invited to read the lessons at similar services in Catholic churches. (DIRECTORY FOR THE APPLICATION OF PRINCIPLES AND NORMS ON ECUMENISM, March 25, 1993.)
22) Pastoral activity in the Catholic Church, Latin
as well as Eastern, no longer aims at having the faithful of one Church
pass over to the other; that is to say, it no longer aims at
proselytizing among the Orthodox. It aims at answering the spiritual
needs of its own faithful and it has no desire for expansion at the
expense of the Orthodox Church. Within these perspectives, so that there
will no longer be room for mistrust and suspicion, it is necessary that
there be reciprocal exchanges of information about various pastoral
projects and that thus cooperation between bishops and all those with
responsibilities in our Churches can be set in motion and develop.
23) The history of the relations between the
Orthodox Church and the Eastern Catholic Churches has been marked by
persecutions and sufferings. Whatever may have been these sufferings and
their causes, they do not justify any triumphalism; no one can glory in
them or draw an argument from them to accuse or disparage the other
Church. God alone knows His own witnesses. Whatever the past may have
been, it must be left to the mercy of God, and all the energies of the
Churches should be directed so that the present and the future conform
better to the will of Christ for His own.
24) It will also be necessary—on the part of both
Churches— that the bishops and all those with pastoral responsibilities
in the Churches scrupulously respect the religious liberty of the
faithful. In turn, the faithful must be able to express themselves for
this purpose. In fact, particularly in situations of conflict, religious
liberty requires that the faithful should be able to express their
opinion and to decide without pressure from outside if they wish to be
in communion either with the Orthodox Church or with the Catholic
Church. Religious freedom would be violated when, under the cover of
financial assistance, the faithful of one Church would be attracted to
the other, by promises, for example, of education and material benefits
that may be lacking in their own Church. In this context, it will be
necessary that social assistance, as well as every form of philanthropic
activity, be organized with common agreement so as to avoid creating
25) Furthermore, the
necessary respect for Christian freedom— one of the most precious gifts
received from Christ—should not become an occasion for undertaking a
pastoral project which may also involve the faithful of other Churches,
without previous consultation with the pastors of these Churches. Not
only should every form of pressure, of any kind whatsoever, be excluded,
but respect for consciences, motivated by an authentic exigency of
faith, is one of the principles guiding the pastoral concern of those
responsible in the two Churches and should be the object of their common
reflection (cf. Galatians 5:13). (Balamand Statement, June 24, 1993.
We all know there are numerous models of unity and
you know that the Catholic Church also has as her goal the full visible
unity of the disciples of Christ, as defined by the Second Vatican
Ecumenical Council in its various Documents (cf. Lumen Gentium, nn. 8, 13; Unitatis Redintegratio,
nn. 2, 4, etc.). This unity, we are convinced, indeed subsists in the
Catholic Church, without the possibility of ever being lost (cf. Unitatis Redintegratio, n. 4); the Church in fact has not totally disappeared from the world.
On the other hand, this unity does not mean
what could be called ecumenism of the return: that is, to deny and to
reject one's own faith history. Absolutely not!
It does not mean uniformity in all expressions of
theology and spirituality, in liturgical forms and in discipline. Unity
in multiplicity, and multiplicity in unity: in my Homily for the Solemnity of Sts Peter and Paul on 29 June last,
I insisted that full unity and true catholicity in the original sense
of the word go together. As a necessary condition for the achievement of
this coexistence, the commitment to unity must be constantly purified
and renewed; it must constantly grow and mature. (Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, Ecumenical meeting at the Archbishopric of Cologne English)
Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis has added much to this apostasy in his own apostate right.
Here are two such examples:
(Vatican Radio) Evangelization is not proselytizing. This
was the focus of Pope Francis’ remarks to faithful gathered for Mass on
Wednesday morning in the Chapel of the Domus Sanctae Marthae residence
in the Vatican. The Pope reiterated that the Christian who wants
to proclaim the Gospel must dialogue with everyone, knowing that no one
owns the truth, because the truth is received by the encounter with
Pope Francis stressed the
courageous attitude of Paul St Paul at the Areopagus, when, in speaking
to the Athenian crowd, he sought to build bridges to proclaim the
Gospel. The Pope called Paul’s attitude one that “seeks dialogue” and is
“closer to the heart” of the listener. The Pope said that this is the
reason why St Paul was a real pontifex: a “builder of bridges” and not
of walls. The Pope went on to say that this makes us think of the
attitude that a Christian ought always to have.
“A Christian,” said Pope Francis, “must proclaim Jesus Christ in
such a way that He be accepted: received, not refused – and Paul knows
that he has to sow the Gospel message. He knows that the proclamation of
Jesus Christ is not easy, but that it does not depend on him. He must
do everything possible, but the proclamation of Jesus Christ, the
proclamation of the truth, depends on the Holy Spirit. Jesus tells us in
today's Gospel: ‘When He shall come, the Spirit of truth, shall guide
you into all the truth.’ Paul does not say to the Athenians: ‘This is
the encyclopedia of truth. Study this and you have the truth, the
truth.’ No! The truth does not enter into an encyclopedia. The truth is
an encounter - it is a meeting with Supreme Truth: Jesus, the great truth. No one owns the truth. The we receive the truth when we meet [it].
But why did Paul act as he did? First, the Pope said, because “this
is the way” of Jesus who “spoke with everyone” with sinners, publicans,
teachers of the law. Paul, therefore, “follows the attitude of Jesus”:
“The Christian who would bring the Gospel must go down this road:
[must] listen to everyone! But now is a good time in the life of the
Church: the last 50 or 60 years have been a good time - for I remember
when as a child one would hear in Catholic families, in my family, ‘No,
we cannot go to their house, because they are not married in the Church,
eh!’. It was as an exclusion. No, you could not go! Neither could we go
to [the houses of] socialists or atheists. Now, thank God, people do
not says such things, right? [Such an attitude] was a defense of the
faith, but it was one of walls: the LORD made bridges. First: Paul has
this attitude, because it was the attitude of Jesus. Second, Paul is aware that he must evangelize, not proselytize.
Citing his predecessor, Pope Benedict, Francis went on to say that the
Church “does not grow by means of proselytizing," but “by attraction, by
witnessing, by preaching,” and Paul had this attitude: proclamation
does not make proselytization – and he succeeds, because, “he did not
doubt his Lord.” The Pope warned that, “Christians who are afraid to
build bridges and prefer to build walls are Christians who are not sure
of their faith, not sure of Jesus Christ.” The Pope exhorted Christians
to do as Paul did and begin to “build bridges and to move forward”:
teaches us this journey of evangelization, because Jesus did, because
he is well aware that evangelization is not proselytizing: it is because
he is sure of Jesus Christ and does not need to justify himself [or] to
seek reasons to justify himself. When the Church loses this apostolic
courage, she becomes a stalled Church, a tidy Church a nice, a Church
that is nice to look at, but that is without fertility, because she has
lost the courage to go to the outskirts, where there are many people who
are victims of idolatry, worldliness of weak thought, [of] so many
things. Let us today ask St Paul to give us this apostolic courage,
this spiritual fervor, so that we might be confident. ‘But Father,’ [you
might say], ‘we might make mistakes…’ ... ‘[Well, what of it,’ I might
respond], ‘Get on with you: if you make a mistake, you get up and go
forward: that is the way. Those who do not walk in order not to err,
make a the more serious mistake. (Miss Frances at Wednesday Mass: build bridges, not walls.)
Pope Francis said, "Do
you need to convince the other to become Catholic? No, no, no! Go out
and meet him, he is your brother. This is enough. Go out and help him
and Jesus will do the rest.
"Your heart, when you encounter those in
greater need, will start to grow and grow and grow," the pope said.
"Encounters multiply our ability to love." (Francis the Insane Dreamer, Rebel and Miscreant joins pilgrims -- via video -- at Shrine of St. Cajetan.)
So much for the Apostles, all
but one of whom traveled to distant lands to seek with urgency the
unconditional conversion of non-Catholics to the true Faith.
So much for the Fathers and the Doctors of the Church.
So much for the eleven million martyr during killed by the caesars and the minions between 67 A.D. and 313 A.D.
So much for the work of Saint Patrick in Ireland.
So much for the work of Saint Augustine of Canterbury in England.
So much for the work of Saint Boniface in Germany.
So much for the work of Saint Henry the Emperor in seeking the evangelization of Central Europe, including Hungary.
So much for the work of Saint Hyacinth in Bohemia, in his own native Poland and in parts of Russia.
So much for the work of Saint Francis of Assisi to convert the Mohammedans.
So much for the work of Saint Vincent Ferrer with the
Jews and Mohammedans of southern France and in parts of the Iberian
So much for the work of Saint Francis de Sales with the Calvinists in Switzerland and France.
So much for the work of Saint Francis Xavier in India and Japan.
So much for the martyrdom of Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen at the hands of the Calvinists.
So much for the martyrdom of Saint Josaphat at the hands of the Orthodox.
So much for the work and the martyrdom of the English Martyrs.
So much for the work and the martyrdom of the North American Martyrs.
In contradistinction to the conciliar "popes," including Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis, Pope Pius IX
knew that he had the solemn Apostolic duty to seek
with urgency the unconditional conversion of all men to the one, true
Church. He told
Protestants that their state "does not guarantee for them the security
of salvation." He did not want to die to face a terrible judgment from
Christ the King for not having done everything in his power to seek the
conversion of non-Catholics to the true Faith:
"It is for this reason that so many who do not share
'the communion and the truth of the Catholic Church' must make use of
the occasion of the Council, by the means of the Catholic Church, which
received in Her bosom their ancestors, proposes [further] demonstration
of profound unity and of firm vital force; hear the requirements
[demands] of her heart, they must engage themselves to leave this state
that does not guarantee for them the security of salvation. She
does not hesitate to raise to the Lord of mercy most fervent prayers to
tear down of the walls of division, to dissipate the haze of errors, and
lead them back within holy Mother Church, where their Ancestors found
salutary pastures of life; where, in an exclusive way, is conserved and
transmitted whole the doctrine of Jesus Christ and wherein is dispensed
the mysteries of heavenly grace.
"It is therefore by
force of the right of Our supreme Apostolic ministry, entrusted to us by
the same Christ the Lord, which, having to carry out with [supreme]
participation all the duties of the good Shepherd and to follow and
embrace with paternal love all the men of the world, we send this Letter
of Ours to all the Christians from whom We are separated, with
which we exhort them warmly and beseech them with insistence to hasten
to return to the one fold of Christ; we desire in fact from the depths
of the heart their salvation in Christ Jesus, and we fear having to
render an account one day to Him, Our Judge, if, through some
possibility, we have not pointed out and prepared the way for them to
attain eternal salvation. In all Our prayers and supplications,
with thankfulness, day and night we never omit to ask for them, with
humble insistence, from the eternal Shepherd of souls the abundance of
goods and heavenly graces. And since, if also, we fulfill in the earth
the office of vicar, with all our heart we await with open arms the
return of the wayward sons to the Catholic Church, in order to receive
them with infinite fondness into the house of the Heavenly Father and to
enrich them with its inexhaustible treasures. By our greatest wish for
the return to the truth and the communion with the Catholic Church, upon
which depends not only the salvation of all of them, but above all also
of the whole Christian society: the entire world in fact cannot enjoy
true peace if it is not of one fold and one shepherd." (Pope Pius IX, Iam Vos Omnes, September 13, 1868.)
Pope Pius IX feared to have to
render an account to Christ the King if he had, "through some
possibility," "not pointed out and prepared the way for them to attain
eternal salvation. Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis, a brutal ecclesiastical tyrant, does not.
Pope Pius IX was a Catholic and thus a true and legitimate Successor of Saint Peter.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio is a heretic who is nothing other than an insane dreamer, rebel and miscreant.
Pope Leo XIII also sought
with urgency the unconditional conversion of non-Catholics to the true
Faith, addressing the Orthodox as follows in Praeclara Gratulationis Publicae, June 20, 1884:
Weigh carefully in your minds and before God the nature of Our request.
It is not for any human motive, but impelled by Divine Charity and a
desire for the salvation of all, that We advise the reconciliation and
union with the Church of Rome; and We mean a perfect and
complete union, such as could not subsist in any way if nothing else was
brought about but a certain kind of agreement in the Tenets of Belief
and an intercourse of Fraternal love. The True Union between Christians
is that which Jesus Christ, the Author of the Church, instituted and
desired, and which consists in a Unity of Faith and Unity of Government. (Pope Leo XIII, referring to the Orthodox in Praeclara Gratulationis Publicae, June 20, 1884.)
the nascent ecumenical movement of his own day that would triumph at the
"Second" Vatican Council and in the "magisterium" of the conciliar
"popes," Pope Pius XI was just as direct in inviting non-Catholics to
convert to the the Faith:
Let, therefore, the separated children
draw nigh to the Apostolic See, set up in the City which Peter and Paul,
the Princes of the Apostles, consecrated by their blood; to that See,
We repeat, which is "the root and womb whence the Church of God
springs," not with the intention and the hope that "the Church of the
living God, the pillar and ground of the truth" will cast aside the
integrity of the faith and tolerate their errors, but, on the contrary,
that they themselves submit to its teaching and government.
Would that it were Our happy lot to do that which so many of Our
predecessors could not, to embrace with fatherly affection those
children, whose unhappy separation from Us We now bewail. Would that God
our Savior, "Who will have all men to be saved and to come to the
knowledge of the truth," would hear us when We humbly beg that He
would deign to recall all who stray to the unity of the Church! In this
most important undertaking We ask and wish that others should ask the
prayers of Blessed Mary the Virgin, Mother of divine grace, victorious
over all heresies and Help of Christians, that She may implore for Us
the speedy coming of the much hoped-for day, when all men shall hear the
voice of Her divine Son, and shall be "careful to keep the unity of the
Spirit in the bond of peace." (Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos, January 6, 1928.)
The Catholic Church is indeed
"the pillar and ground of the truth, which is why she can never cast
aside the "integrity of the faith" in order to tolerate the errors of
non-Catholics. Her shepherds have unhesitatingly invited all
non-Catholics to submit to the teaching and government of the Catholic
Church, which was founded by Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ
upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope.
Alas, Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis believes that it is a virtue to
tolerate the errors of non-Catholics. There is, of course, a certain
logic in this as he is steeped in heresy and error himself, expecting us
to tolerate him as a "pope" despite this fact.
Perhaps Jorge Mario
Bergoglio/Francis t would like to
tell Our Lady herself, to whom he professes a devotion while promoting
doctrines and presiding over liturgies that are repugnant to her, that
she was wrong to seek the conversion of Catholic apostate Pierre
Port-Combet, who had apostatized to become a devotee of the hideous
revolutionary named John Calvin:
Then the Lady said, "Where does that heretic live who cut the willow tree? Does he not want to be converted?"
Pierre [Port-Combet, who had become a Calvinist] mumbled an answer. The Lady became more serious, "Do
you think that I do not know that you are the heretic? Realize that
your end is at hand. If you do not return to the True Faith, you will be
cast into Hell! But if you change your beliefs, I shall protect you
before God. Tell people to pray that they may gain the good graces
which, God in His mercy has offered to them."
Pierre was filled with sorrow and shame and moved
away from the Lady. Suddenly realizing that he was being rude, Pierre
stepped closer to her, but she had moved away and was already near the
little hill. He ran after her begging, "Please stop and listen to me. I
want to apologize to you and I want you to help me!"
The Lady stopped and turned. By the time Pierre
caught up to her, she was floating in the air and was already
disappearing from sight. Suddenly, Pierre realized that the Most Blessed
Virgin Mary had appeared to him! He fell to his knees and cried buckets
of tears, "Jesus and Mary I promise you that I will change my life and
become a good Catholic. I am sorry for what I have done and I beg you
please, to help me change my life…"
On August 14, 1656,
Pierre became very sick. An Augustinian priest came to hear his
confession and accepted him back into the Catholic Church. Pierre
received Holy Communion the next day on the Feast of the Assumption.
After Pierre returned to the Catholic Faith, many others followed him.
His son and five daughters came back to the Catholic Church as well as
many Calvinists and Protestants. Five weeks later on September 8, 1656,
Pierre died and was buried under the miraculous willow tree, just as he
had asked. (Our Lady of the Willow Tree.)
There is not one wretched thing about conciliarism that has the approval of the Mother of God.
According to Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis, Catholics must expand their "circle of ideas" when the truth of the man is that the Catholic Church is the sole and infallible repository of the entirety of Divine Revelation, which consists of Sacred Scripture and Sacred or Apostolic Tradition. We need to seek with urgency the conversion of all non-Catholics to the true Church, outside of which there is no salvation and without which there can be no true social order.
Bergoglio/Francis believes that it is "good enough" for men to seek "the Good" as they following their "autonomous conscience:"
Scalfari: Your Holiness, is there is a single vision of the Good? And who decides what it is?
Bergoglio: "Each of us has a vision of good and of evil. We have to encourage people to move towards what they think is Good."
Holiness, you wrote that in your letter to me. The conscience is
autonomous, you said, and everyone must obey his conscience. I think
that's one of the most courageous steps taken by a Pope.
I repeat it here. Everyone has his own idea of good and evil and must
choose to follow the good and fight evil as he conceives them. That
would be enough to make the world a better place." (The Antipope: how the Church will change - Repubblica.it.)
"Everyone has his own idea of good and evil and must choose to follow the good and fight evil as he conceives them. That would would enough to make the world a better place."
Some have asked what is going on with "Pope" Francis.
Apostasy, that's what. This is is not difficult. This is really simple. A figure of Antichrist is spitting directly in our faces and some have to scratch their heads to wonder "what is going on" with "Pope" Francis.
"We have to encourage people to move towards what they think is Good"?
Thus it is that the baby-killing doctor is making the world a "better place" by choosing what he thinks "is Good."
Thus it is that a practicing sodomite is making the world a "better place" by choosing what he thinks " is Good."
Thus it is that Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro is making the world a "better place" by choosing what he thinks " is Good" as he governs as a reckless statist with no regard for the laws of God and man.
Martin Luther, John Calvin, John Wesley, Henry VIII, Thomas Cranmer, Elizabeth I, Maximilian Robespierre, Otto von Bismarck, the Italian Freemasons who overthrow the Papal States, Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong, Ho Chi Minh, Plutarco Elias Calles and, among so many others, Adolf Hitler each made the world a "better place" by choosing what they thought was "Good."
Pope Gregory XVI, writing in Mirari Vos, August 15, 1832, explained to us where "liberty of conscience" (and human consciences must be rightly formed) would lead men over the course of time:
This shameful font of indifferentism gives rise to
that absurd and erroneous proposition which claims that liberty of
conscience must be maintained for everyone. It spreads ruin in sacred
and civil affairs, though some repeat over and over again with the
greatest impudence that some advantage accrues to religion from it. "But the death of the soul is worse than freedom of error,"
as Augustine was wont to say. When all restraints are removed by which
men are kept on the narrow path of truth, their nature, which is already
inclined to evil, propels them to ruin. Then truly "the bottomless pit"
is open from which John saw smoke ascending which obscured the sun, and
out of which locusts flew forth to devastate the earth. Thence
comes transformation of minds, corruption of youths, contempt of sacred
things and holy laws -- in other words, a pestilence more deadly to the
state than any other. Experience shows, even from earliest times, that
cities renowned for wealth, dominion, and glory perished as a result of
this single evil, namely immoderate freedom of opinion, license of free
speech, and desire for novelty.
Here We must include that harmful and never
sufficiently denounced freedom to publish any writings whatever and
disseminate them to the people, which some dare to demand and promote
with so great a clamor. We are horrified to see what monstrous doctrines
and prodigious errors are disseminated far and wide in countless books,
pamphlets, and other writings which, though small in weight, are very
great in malice. We are in tears at the abuse which proceeds from them
over the face of the earth. Some are so carried away that they
contentiously assert that the flock of errors arising from them is
sufficiently compensated by the publication of some book which defends
religion and truth. Every law condemns deliberately doing evil simply
because there is some hope that good may result. Is there any sane man
who would say poison ought to be distributed, sold publicly, stored, and
even drunk because some antidote is available and those who use it may
be snatched from death again and again? (Pope Gregory XVI, Mirari Vos, August 15, 1832.)
Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis's false, apostates beliefs about "tolerating" error, if not encouraging its spread in the name of "liberty of conscience," were condemned by Popes Leo XIII and Saint Pius X:
Everyone should avoid familiarity or friendship with anyone suspected of
belonging to masonry or to affiliated groups. Know them by their fruits
and avoid them. Every familiarity should be avoided, not only with
those impious libertines who openly promote the character of the sect, but
also with those who hide under the mask of universal tolerance, respect
for all religions, and the craving to reconcile the maxims of the
Gospel with those of the revolution. These men seek to reconcile Christ
and Belial, the Church of God and the state without God. (Pope Leo XIII, Custodi di Quella Fede, December 8, 1892.)
This being said, what must be thought of the promiscuity in which young
Catholics will be caught up with heterodox and unbelieving folk in a
work of this nature? Is it not a thousand-fold more dangerous for them
than a neutral association? What are we to think of this appeal
to all the heterodox, and to all the unbelievers, to prove the
excellence of their convictions in the social sphere in a sort of
apologetic contest? Has not this contest lasted for nineteen
centuries in conditions less dangerous for the faith of Catholics? And
was it not all to the credit of the Catholic Church? What are we
to think of this respect for all errors, and of this strange invitation
made by a Catholic to all the dissidents to strengthen their
convictions through study so that they may have more and more abundant
sources of fresh forces? What are we to think of an association in which
all religions and even Free-Thought may express themselves openly and
in complete freedom? For the Sillonists who, in public lectures
and elsewhere, proudly proclaim their personal faith, certainly do not
intend to silence others nor do they intend to prevent a Protestant from
asserting his Protestantism, and the skeptic from affirming his
skepticism. Finally, what are we to think of a Catholic who, on entering
his study group, leaves his Catholicism outside the door so as not to
alarm his comrades who, “dreaming of disinterested social action, are
not inclined to make it serve the triumph of interests, coteries and
even convictions whatever they may be”? Such is the profession of faith
of the New Democratic Committee for Social Action which has taken over
the main objective of the previous organization and which, they say,
“breaking the double meaning which surround the Greater Sillon both in
reactionary and anti-clerical circles”, is now open to all men “who
respect moral and religious forces and who are convinced that no genuine
social emancipation is possible without the leaven of generous
idealism.” (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)
Anyone who cannot see that Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis believes in apostasy and speaks as an apostate is willfully blind, most likely for the sake of filthy lucre and/or for the fear of losing human respect and having to admit to others he has been mistaken, or is simply intellectually dishonest.
To the final two excerpts of the Bergoglio-Scalfari interview for this part of the continuing series of commentaries to appear on this website:
Scalfari: Is the Church doing that?
that is the purpose of our mission: to identify the material and
immaterial needs of the people and try to meet them as we can. Do you
know what agape is?" (The Antipope: how the Church will change - Repubblica.it.)
The first law and hence the mission of the Catholic Church is the salvation of souls. Her "mission" does have to "identify" the material and "immaterial" needs of the people. She has known how to serve the supernatural and temporal needs of her children from her very birth on Pentecost Sunday. Back to the insanity.
Scalfari: Yes, I know.
Bergoglio: "It is love
of others, as our Lord preached. It is not proselytizing, it is love.
Love for one's neighbor, that leavening that serves the common good."
Scalfari: Love your neighbor as yourself.
Bergoglio: "Exactly so."
Scalfari: Jesus in his preaching said that agape, love for others, is the only way to love God. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Bergoglio : "You're
not wrong. The Son of God became incarnate in the souls of men to
instill the feeling of brotherhood. All are brothers and all children of
God. Abba, as he called the Father. I will show you the way, he said.
Follow me and you will find the Father and you will all be his children
and he will take delight in you. Agape, the love of each one of us for
the other, from the closest to the furthest, is in fact the only way
that Jesus has given us to find the way of salvation and of the
Beatitudes." (The Antipope: how the Church will change - Repubblica.it.)
This is pure Judeo-Masonry.
The Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Son, became Incarnate in the Virginal and Immaculate Womb of His Most Blessed Mother by the power of the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost, to pay back in His own Sacred Humanity what was owed to Him in His Infinity as God, the debt of human sin.
Yes, Our Lord came to teach us and to instruct us and to unite as brothers in the Catholic Faith and by no other means. Yet it is that Bergoglio/Francis does not believe that one has to be Catholic to truly know, love and serve Him, something will be covered in part three of this series later this afternoon or early evening.
Saint Anthony Mary Claret's wonderful description of what constitutes true love of God comes to mind here:
Having been entirely convinced of the utility and necessity of love to be a good missionary, I resolved to go in search for this hidden treasure, though I should have to sell everything in order to find it. I meditated on the means to acquire it, and I discovered that it can be acquired:
1) By observing with exactitude the commandments and the laws of God.
2) By practicing the evangelical counsels.
3) By corresponding faithfully to divine inspirations.
4) By making the daily meditation carefully.
5) By asking and longing for love continually and incessantly, without ever failing to ask or without getting tired of asking , even though it tarry in the coming. It is necessary to pray to Jesus and Mary for it, and especially to ask Our Father in Heaven for it through the merits of Jesus and His Blessed Mother, and to be most sure that Our Heavenly Father will send the Holy Spirit with this love who prays in this manner.
6) The sixth means is to hunger and thirst for this live, just as he who is really and truly hungry in his body always thinks of how he can satisfy his hunger, and to this end asks anyone who might be in a position to help him. It thus that I am determined to seek for love with ardent desires and aspirations. With this in view I go to Our Lord and say to Him with my love, my glory, my hope, and my refuge: Thou art my life and my last end! O my love my happiness, my preserver, my joy, I love Thee! O my reformer, my master, my Father, and my love." (Saint Anthony Mary Claret, The Autobiography of Saint Anthony Mary Claret, republished by TAN Books and Publishers, 1985, pp 120-121.)
Much to the chagrin (or perhaps not) of Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis, he stands condemned by Saint Anthony Mary Claret's true love of God and his own apostolic, missionary zeal for souls, which is displayed with tireless energy and zeal as the Archbishop of Santiago, Cuba.
Let Saint Anthony Mary Claret explain the real reason why society is perishing before our very eyes:
The sole reason why society is perishing is because it has refused to hear the word of the Church, which is the word of life, the word of God. All plans for salvation will be sterile if the great word of the Catholic Church is not restored in all its fullness.
The right to preach and instruct the people which the Church ha received from God Himself in the persons of the Apostles, has been usurped by a crowd of prattling newspapermen and ignorant babblers. The ministry of the world of God, which is the most elevated and important of all--because by it the earth has been conquered--has turned from a ministry of salvation to an abominable ministry of ruin. As nothing or nobody could check the triumph of the word of God in the time of the Apostles, so also will no one or nothing be able to repress the ravages of false preaching and doctrines unless by opposing them with the preaching of priests and by the distribution of abundant good books and other holy and profitable works.
"O my God, I give Thee my word that I will labor, preach, write and circulate good books and pamphlets in abundance, so as to exterminate evil by good." (Saint Anthony Mary Claret, The Autobiography of Saint Anthony Mary Claret, republished by TAN Books and Publishers, 1985, p. 8.)
Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis does not believe that the word of the Catholic Church must be restored in all its fullness. Indeed, he condemns "restorationists." He is an apostate, and the interview he gave to Eugenio Scalfari in La Repubblica only adds exclamation point after exclamation point to this inescapable fact that so many still want to ignore in spite of all of the evidence he is giving to testify in behalf of its veracity.
As noted in part one of this commentary, suffice it to say for the moment that Bergoglio/Francis said nothing really "new" in his interview with Eugenio Scalfari. He is, as noted at the beginning of this segment, simply saying what has been said by his predecessors in a more vulgar and direct way without all of his immediate predecessor's use of paradox and contradiction. There is nothing random about at all.
This is the month of Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary. It is a good idea to pray a Rosary in reparation for Bergoglio's apostasies and that many Catholics will use this moment to recognize that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ desires to rain down graces upon them through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of His Most Blessed Mother in order to reject conciliarism and its false officials and false doctrines and sacrilegious liturgies once and for all.
Isn't it time to pray a Rosary now?
Vivat Christus Rex! Viva Cristo Rey!

Saint Joseph, pray for us.
Saints Peter and Paul, pray for us.
