Anti Pope Francis’ Heresies, The Apocalypse & The End of the World (Jorge Bergoglio Exposed)

There have been 260 valid popes in Catholic history, and more than 40 antipopes (i.e., men who posed as popes but had not been truly elected). There have been more than 200 papal vacancies (periods without a pope). The facts available on this website (see left linkbox) prove that the last six men who have claimed be popes – Francis I, Benedict XVI, John Paul II, John Paul I, Paul VI and John XXIII, the men who brought in Vatican II – have been and are antipopes. We prove that they are/were manifest heretics and not true Catholics. This section defends Catholic teaching and the teaching of the true popes; it exposes manifestly heretical antipopes who have been falsely posing as leaders of the Catholic Church.

Anti Pope Francis’ Heresies, The Apocalypse & The End of the World

Jorge Mario Bergoglio (born 17 December 1936) is an Argentine public figure who is de facto head of state of the Vatican City. His supporters in the Vatican II Church claim that he was elected “Pope of the Catholic Church” as Francis I in March 2013.

He was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina to a working-class family; both of his parents are of northern Italian (Piedmont) ancestry and his father was born in Italy. He joined the Society of Jesus just before the Second Vatican Council and was “ordained” as a priest of that sect in 1969 in the Invalid New Rite of Ordination. He was the Provincial Superior of the Jesuits in Argentina from 1973 to 1979. He began climbing the ranks of the Vatican II Church in Argentina as the Catholic faith was declining; he became “Archbishop” of Buenos Aires in 1998 and a Vatican II “Cardinal” in 2001 and Vatican II “Pope” in 2013.

The Amazing Heresies of Anti-Pope Francis

On March 13, 2013 Jorge Bergoglio from Argentina was elected Antipope Francis of the Vatican II sect.

This brief overview will prove, from Francis’ words and actions, that he is a complete heretic. We will be quoting from the Vatican’s official newspaper L’ Osservatore Romano, his public interviews and speeches, his Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium, and two of Francis’ books that document his beliefs on various topics – Conversations with Jorge Bergoglio and On Heaven and Earth.

The Vatican II sect has made quite a selection in electing ‘Cardinal’ Jorge Mario Bergoglio as antipope. On many levels, this is tremendous news for true Catholics and sedevacantists; for it completely tears the mask off the Counter Church. This is the Vatican II sect unveiled: its faithlessness, indifferentism, modernism and filth presented for all to see, without even the crafty efforts at subterfuge (and continuity with Tradition) which were made by the previous antipopes (possibly the False Prophet & the Antichrist). It’s a fitting end to (and a fitting choice for) the Counter Church in the very last stage of the Great Apostasy. Bergoglio is not only a layman (being ordained ‘priest’ in the invalid New Rite of Ordination), but is also an unabashed supporter of interfaith activity, false ecumenism, etc. He is also liturgically revolutionary. He’s a liberal, even by the standards of the Vatican II sect.

According to the assessment of false traditionalists who are consumed with Latin Masses under the authority of the Counter Church, Antipope Francis is a fierce enemy of the traditional Mass. He is perhaps the biggest enemy of the traditional Mass among the ‘cardinals.’ He is considered a nightmare choice for false traditionalists who accept the antipopes. For true Catholics, of course, all these facts further vindicates the true position of sedevacantism and makes a complete mockery of the position of false traditionalists (and all others) who have obstinately defended the Counter Church or the antipopes as valid popes – and rejected God and the faith in the process. It only makes the job of exposing the Counter Church much easier.

Francis’ Heresies on Atheism and Atheists

Antipope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium (# 254), Nov. 24, 2013: “Non-Christians [such as pagans and atheists], by God’s gracious initiative, when they are faithful to their own consciences, can live “justified by the grace of God”, and thus be “associated to the paschal mystery of Jesus Christ”… to the sacramental dimension of sanctifying grace... to live our own beliefs.”

It is infallibly taught in Sacred Scripture that everyone above the age of reason can know with certainty that there is a God. They know this by the things that are made: the trees, the grass, the sun, the moon, the stars, etc. Anyone who is an atheist or agnostic (who believes that God does not exist or is unknowable) is without excuse. The natural law convicts him. This is a revealed truth of Sacred Scripture.

Creation itself bears witness that there is a God, that is, a living, omnipotent and intelligent Being who created it. The apostle Paul wrote to the saints in Rome that since the creation of the world, God’s invisible qualities – His eternal power and Godhead – have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made (Romans 1:20); and David said that the heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament shows His handiwork (Psalm 19:1). Therefore, since the existence of God is so clearly witnessed by His works, those who deny His existence are without excuse. “The fool has said in his heart, ‘there is no God” (Psalm 53:1).

God defined infallibly, based on Romans 1, that the one true God can be known with certitude by the things which have been made, and by the natural light of human reason.

Romans 1:19-21: “Because that which is known of God is manifest in them. For God hath manifested it unto them. For the invisible things of Him, from the creation of the world, are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made; His eternal power also, and divinity: SO THAT THEY ARE INEXCUSABLE.”

Yet, the Vatican II sect officially teaches that one can be an atheist through no fault of his own:

Vatican II document, Lumen Gentium # 16: “Nor does divine providence deny the helps that are necessary for salvation to those who, through no fault of their own, have not yet attained to the express recognition of God yet who strive, not without divine grace, to lead an upright life.”

Vatican II is teaching here that there are some people who, THROUGH NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN, have not yet attained to the express recognition of God. In other words, there are people who, through no fault of their own, don’t believe in God (i.e., are atheists). This is heresy.

St. Paul teaches that atheists are inexcusable because God’s creation proves His existence. Vatican II and Francis, on the contrary, teaches that atheists can be excused and saved. This causes us to ask, “What bible was Vatican II and Francis using?” It must have been the revised satanic edition. Their statement about those who don’t acknowledge God is not only condemned by St. Paul, but also by Vatican Council I. Vatican I dogmatically defined the principle set forth in Romans 1 – which directly contradicts the teaching of atheism, agnosticism, Antipope Francis and the Vatican II sect.

Pope Pius IX, First Vatican Council, Session 3, On Revelation, Can. 1: “If anyone shall have said that the one true God, our Creator and Lord, cannot be known with certitude by those things which have been made, by the natural light of human reason: let him be anathema.”

Pope Pius IX, First Vatican Council, Session 3, On God the Creator, Can. 1: “If anyone shall have denied the one true God, Creator and Lord of visible and invisible things: let him be anathema.”

Vatican II and Francis falls directly under these anathemas by its heretical teaching above.

Francis respects regardless of beliefs

Yet despite this dogmatic teaching based on Romans 1, in On Heaven and Earth, pp. 12-13 Francis says he respects atheists and doesn’t try to convert them. He also says that their “life is not condemned”:

I do not approach the relationship in order to proselytize, or convert the atheist; I respect himnor would I say that his life is condemned, because I am convinced that I do not have the right to make a judgment about the honesty of that person… every man is the image of God, whether he is a believer or not. For that reason alone everyone has a series of virtues, qualities, and a greatness of his own.” (Francis, On Heaven and Earth, pp. 12-13)

In contrast to Francis, the Council of Florence dogmatically defined that any individual who has a view contrary to the Catholic Church’s teaching on Our Lord Jesus Christ or the Trinity, or any one of the truths about Our Lord or the Trinity, is rejected, condemned and anathematized by God.

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, Bull Cantate Domino, 1442, ex cathedra: “… the holy Roman Church, founded on the words of our Lord and Savior, firmly believes, professes and preaches one true God, almighty, immutable and eternal, Father, Son and Holy SpiritTherefore it [the Church] condemns, rejects, anathematizes and declares to be outside the Body of Christ [and of God], which is the Church, whoever holds opposing or contrary views.”

An atheists interviewed Francis for the Italian newspaper The Republic. The interview was published on October 1, 2013. Francis directly told the atheist that he has no intention of trying to convert him. Francis rejects proselytism four different times in this interview. Francis declared: “Proselytism is solemn nonsense, it makes no sense.”

Now, our Lord commanded the apostle to go and proselytize, to go and teach. He said: “Go ye therefore, and teach 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 commended you.” (Matthew 28:19)

How clear is that? And what’s really outrageous about this statement is that he’s essentially spitting on and mocking the martyrs, who suffered, died, were tortured, for teaching, preaching and spreading the true faith; and this apostate has the nerve to call it a solemn nonsense. That anyone claiming to be the Pope says such an evil statement, is incredible.

Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum (# 13), June 29, 1896: “Therefore if a man does not want to be, or to be called, a heretic, let him not strive to please this or that manbut let him hasten before all things to be in communion with the Roman See.”

Pope Pius IV, profession of faith, Council of Trent, ex cathedra: “This true Catholic faith, outside of which no one can be saved… I now profess and truly hold…”

The Catholic Church infallibly teaches that atheists are condemned and that they must be converted to the Catholic faith for salvation. Yet, Antipope Francis is dominating the headlines around the world with his assertion that people don’t need to believe in God to get to heaven.

Antipope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium (# 254), Nov. 24, 2013: “Non-Christians [such as atheists], by God’s gracious initiative, when they are faithful to their own consciences, can live “justified by the grace of God”, and thus be “associated to the paschal mystery of Jesus Christ”… to the sacramental dimension of sanctifying grace... to live our own beliefs.”

Some may argue that when Francis continued in his Evangelii Gaudium, saying: “they [false religions, practices and beliefs] can be channels which the Holy Spirit raises up in order to liberate non-Christians from atheistic immanentism or from purely individual religious experiences” -- that this means they will be converted. But we already know he doesn’t believe the Catholic Faith is necessary for salvation, and that he rejects proselytizing atheists; so that is not what he means. He is just saying it could happen - “they can” - not that it will, which is why he said: they can be justified if they follow their conscience. And then he ended saying: “which can help us better to live our own beliefs.” (Evangelii Gaudium, # 254)

His position is of course, heresy and apostasy. He made a similar statement in an open letter to the founder of the newspaper La Repubblica.

Statements like this only confirm what we’ve documented about the Vatican II antipopes, and what was proven in the video “What Francis Really Believes.” I’ve read Francis’ entire letter. The headlines accurately reflect what Antipope Francis wrote in his Evangelii Gaudium.

Concerning atheists, Francis wrote:

“First of all, you ask if the God of Christians forgives those who do not believe and do not seek faith. Given that - and this is fundamental - God’s mercy has no limits if he who asks for mercy does so in contrition and with a sincere heart, the issue for those who do not believe in God is in obeying their own conscience. In fact, listening and obeying it, means deciding about what is perceived to be good or to be evil. The goodness or the wickedness of our behavior depends on this decision.” (“Pope” Francisco writes to La Repubblica: “An open dialogue with non-believers”, 2013/09/11/)

Here Francis clearly indicates that people who don’t believe in God can be forgiven and saved if they obey their own conscience and follow what they perceive to be good; and later in his “Evangelii Gaudium” (254) he confirmed that this indeed was what he meant. So don’t allow any liar to claim that Francis’ statement has been misrepresented. It has not been misrepresented as Antipope Francis himself confirmed.

That’s an astounding heresy because it’s a basic dogma of Catholicism that faith is necessary for salvation. This is a fundamental issue. As Hebrews 11:6 says, “…without faith it is impossible to please God.”

The dogma of the Church, that no one can be justified, saved or pleasing to God without faith was taught throughout history and solemnly declared by the Council of Trent and Vatican I. Both Councils repeated the truth of Hebrews 11:6. Of course, it’s also a dogma that one must have the Catholic faith to be saved, and that no one can be saved outside the Catholic Church. These truths have been defined by many popes.

Francis’ heresy trashes and denies all of those proclamations, but it gets even worse, because there are specific dogmatic definitions against the notion that atheists can be excused or saved.

Based on Romans 1:20, which teaches that all who deny the existence of God are inexcusable, Vatican I solemnly declared in Canon 1, On Revelation, “If anyone shall have said that the one true God, our Creator and Lord, cannot be known with certitude by those things which have been made, by the natural light of human reason: let him be anathema.”

Therefore, the position that atheists can be excused for not recognizing what is clear from the natural light of human reason, namely, that there is a God, is an anathematized heresy.

In Canon 1, On God the Creator, Vatican I also declared, “If anyone shall have denied the one true God, Creator and Lord of visible and invisible things, let him be anathema.”

That means that anyone who denies God or His existence, is specifically anathematized.

Francis’ statements rejects these dogmatic definitions, in addition to all the others previously mentioned. People need to recognize the significance of this heresy.

The truth that one must have faith is a basic and fundamental teaching of Christianity. His statement that people can be saved without faith is equivalent to denying Jesus is God, that Mary is the Mother of God, or that Jesus rose again. They are all basic dogmas.

He has openly repudiated the teaching of Christianity, the necessity of faith. He is a complete heretic, not that more proof was required, but Francis’ statement in the interview, and later confirmed in his “Apostolic Exhortation” addressed to the “universal Church,” is another proof that he is not the pope, but a heretical non-Catholic antipope.

The organization he represents, the Vatican II sect, is not the Catholic Church, but the End Times Counter Church.

Francis’ Heretical Teaching on Homosexual “Civil Unions” and Homosexuality

As we will see, Francis says he respects those who favor the abomination of same sex “marriage”, and says he never was disrespectful to sodomites and perverts. Francis also says he does not “judge” homosexuals and that a person who is gay can have “good will”.

Discussing homosexuals (people in general and clergy), Francis said in July 2013:

If a person is gay and seeks God and has good will, who am I to judge them?

Francis claims to be the first Judge in the Catholic Church, a pope, and yet says “who am I to judge” homosexuals. It is shocking and a total inversion of Catholic morals… It is not surprising that Francis believes such horrible things when he idolizes man.

Also notice the following interesting statements Francis makes about gay “marriage” and homosexuals.

Francis, On Heaven and Earth, p. 117: “When the head of the Government of the City of Buenos Aires, Mauricio Macri, did not appeal the judge’s opinion right away authorizing a [same-sex] wedding, I felt that I had something to say, to inform; I saw myself with an obligation to state my opinion. It was the first time in eighteen years as bishop that I criticized a government official. If you analyze the two declarations that I formulated, at no time did I speak about homosexuals nor did I make any derogatory reference toward them… Macri told me that these were his convictions; I respected him for that, but the head of the Government does not have to transfer his personal convictions to law. In no moment did I speak disrespectfully about homosexuals…”

Here we see that Francis says he respects those who favor the abomination of same sex “marriage”, and that he never was disrespectful to sodomites and perverts.

Francis greets Argentine Pro-gay “marriage” president Nestor Kirchner

Francis also mentions how he allowed the pro-gay “marriage” supporting president of Argentina, Nestor Kirchner, to preside over a “Catholic” memorial service to honor deceased “Catholic priests” and seminarians:

Francis, Conversations, p. 145: “I even asked him to preside over the ceremony when he arrived at the church…”

Later when the apostate president died, Francis immediately offered a public “requiem mass” for him.

Francis also allowed politicians who are vocal pro-abortion and gay “marriage” supporters to receive “communion” at his installation “mass”.

LifeNews, Mars 20, 2013: “Pro-abortion Biden and Pelosi Received Communion at Mass for Antipope Francis - The communion issue was exacerbated when, despite their pro-abortion views, Vice President Joe Biden and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi both received communion at the Mass to celebrate Pope Francis’ inauguration. Biden’s office confirmed to the Washington Times that he had received communion and reporters in the White House presidential reporting pool confirmed in an email to LifeNews that Pelosi had received it as well. … “At a Mass during which our new Pope emphasized the duty public officials – and all the rest of us – have to protect the weakest among us, Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi have the audacity to receive Communion while publicly renouncing their responsibility to protect the weakest among us.”

It has now also been documented and confirmed that Francis favored homosexual civil unions when he was in Argentina. He just didn’t want a homosexual civil union to be called a marriage.

CNN, March 21, 2013: “Behind closed doors, pope supported civil unions in Argentina, activist says - Less than an hour after he fired off an angry letter to Catholic Church leaders about their handling of Argentina’s same-sex marriage debate, Marcelo Marquez says his phone rang. … "He [Francis, then the “archbishop” of Buenos Aires] told me. … ‘I’m in favor of gay rights and in any case, I also favor civil unions for homosexuals, but I believe that Argentina is not yet ready for a gay marriage law," said Marquez, a gay rights activist, a self-described devout Catholic and a former theology professor at a Catholic seminary.”

HuffingtonPost, March 20, 2013: “Pope Francis Advocated For Civil Unions For Gay Couples In 2010 As Argentina’s Cardinal Bergoglio - Pope Francis supported civil unions for gay couples as recently as 2010. … As Argentina’s legislature debated President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner’s bill to allow gay marriage, Francis -- then known as Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio -- suggested to his bishops that the Church support civil unions as a compromise of sorts. At the time, civil unions were already legal in parts of Argentina ABC noted. Civil unions were the “lesser of two evils,” said Sergio Rubin, authorized biographer for then-Cardinal Bergoglio, according to The New York Times. “He [Bergoglio] wagered on a position of greater dialogue with society.”

It has also been reported that Francis still favors homosexual civil unions as “Pope”.

DailyMail, March 10, 2014: “Pope to stop condemning same-sex civil partnerships hints leading cardinal in move which could be step towards Catholic gay marriage - Pope Francis has suggested that the Vatican could support gay civil unions in the future, according to one of the church’s most senior cardinals. Cardinal Timothy Dolan said that the pontiff wants the Catholic Church to study same-sex unions, ‘rather than condemn them’. Cardinal Dolan told American television that Francis wants church leaders to ‘look into it and see the reasons that have driven them.’ … In an interview to mark his first year in the church’s top job, Pope Francis last week reaffirmed the Vatican’s opposition to gay marriage but indicated that some types of civil unions could be acceptable to the church. The Pope restated the church’s teaching that ‘marriage is between a man and a woman,’ but added ‘We have to look at different cases and evaluate them in their variety.’ Some countries justify civil unions as a way to provide the same economic and legal rights to cohabitating couples as those who are married, the Pope said in the interview with Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera. … Francis’ comments are the first time that a Pope has indicated even tentative acceptance of civil unions, according to Vatican watchers. … In recognition for the perceived change in stance Francis appeared on the cover of gay magazine The Advocate as their person of the year.”

Sergio Rubin is an Argentine journalist and authorized biographer of Francis. He wrote (in 2010) the only biography of Jorge Bergoglio (now Antipope Francis) available at the time of his election. Rubin testified that while taking a strong stand against same-sex marriage, Bergoglio raised the possibility in 2010 with his bishops in Argentina that they support the idea of civil unions as a compromise position. On Gay Unions, a Pragmatist Before He Was a Pope. The article went on to say that “a majority of the bishops voted to overrule him”.

In addition to Marquez and Rubin’s testimonies, two other Argentine journalists and two senior officials of the Argentine “bishops conference”, supported Rubin’s account:

NCR Online, Apr. 12, 2013: “On March 19, The New York Times reported that when Argentina was gearing up for a bitter national debate on gay marriage in 2009 and 2010, Bergoglio quietly favored a compromise solution that would have included civil unions for same-sex couples. … On this score, I was told by three sources in Argentina that the Times basically got it right: Bergoglio did, in fact, favor civil unions. That was confirmed on background by two senior officials of the bishops’ conference in Argentina, both of whom worked with Bergoglio and took part in the behind-the-scenes discussions as the conference tried to shape its position. "Bergoglio supported civil unions," one of those officials told me. Mariano de Vedia, a veteran journalist for La Nación, has covered church/state issues in Argentina for years and said he could confirm Bergoglio’s position had been correctly described in the Times account. Guillermo Villarreal, a Catholic journalist in Argentina, said it was well known at the time that Bergoglio’s moderate position was opposed by Archbishop Héctor Rubén Aguer of La Plata, the leader of the hawks.”

This is heresy. It means that Francis approved perverted and abominable sexual behavior that is condemned in Scripture and Catholic teaching. His stance is no different at all from endorsing abortion under the condition that the state does not give abortion special or privileged status by using state funds for it.

All of this without a doubt proves that Francis is certainly not a Catholic. He’s not a pope, he’s not a lover of truth and of the true God, he’s not honest, he’s not seeking to convert souls to the one true faith, etc. As he cannot defend openly gay pseudo-marriage, he uses relativism to defend the “gay agenda”, reducing the issue of homosexuality to the mere political lobby. “If a person is gay and seeking God, who am I to judge her?”, says Antipope Francis.

Since Francis idolizes man, it’s no wonder he endorses such blasphemies and perversions. One hear the “You can’t judge!” heresy so many times it makes one sick. Heretics love this evil phrase and will recite it every time someone charitably rebukes their sinful lifestyle. They don’t seem to grasp the fact that God has already judged (Leviticus 20:13; 1 Corinthians 6:9).

More on Francis’ Heresies on Homosexuals and Homosexuality

Antipope Francis recently gave a shocking interview to the editor of the so-called Jesuit journal, La Civilta Cattolica. He was interviewed by Antonio Spadaro on behalf of La Civilta Cattolica, Thinking Faith, America and several other major Jesuit journals around the world. The interview was conducted in Italian. After the Italian text was officially approved, a team of five independent experts were commissioned to produce the English translation, which is also published by America.

We will be quoting from the English pdf translation found in the Jesuit journal Thinking Faith, Sept. 19, 2013.

The Antonio Spadaro Interview

On p. 7 of the interview, Francis is talking about homosexuals. He says:

“In Buenos Aires I used to receive letters from homosexuals persons who are ‘socially wounded’ because they tell me that they feel like the church has always condemned them. But the church does not want to do this. During the return flight from Rio de Janeiro I said that if a homosexual person is of good will and is in search of God, I am no one to judge.” He goes on to say, “it is not possible to interfere spiritually in the life of a person.” Thinking Faith, Sept. 19, 2013, p. 7.

He then re-quotes something he said previously about homosexuals:

“A person once asked me, in a provocative manner, if I approved of homosexuality. I replied with another question: “‘Tell me: when God looks at a gay person, does he endorse the existence of this person with love, or reject and condemn this person?’ We must always consider the person.” Thinking Faith, Sept. 19, 2013, p. 8.

This is wicked heresy! First he says, he’s “no one to judge” and that “the church does not want to do this [that is, condemn the homosexuals].” That’s interesting because the First Vatican Council declared that a Pope (a true Pope) is the supreme judge of the faithful. Francis doesn’t judge or condemn anyone because he’s not a Catholic and he’s not the Pope. Also, to say that the Church does not condemn homosexuals is equivalent to saying that God does not condemn homosexuals. There is no difference between the two.

Vatican Council I – A true Pope is Supreme Judge

Second, he’s discussing homosexuals. He says he’s no one to judge, and he teaches that God and the Church doesn’t condemn them or reject them. That indicates quite clearly, that homosexuals could be justified despite their wickedness and abominable behavior. And, we know Francis is including active homosexuals in his comments, because he makes no distinction between people who merely consider themselves to have a homosexual orientation, and those who engage in homosexual behavior.

Indeed, we know he’s talking about those who engage in homosexual acts because Francis refers to homosexuals who have claimed to him that they feel excluded. That obviously includes active homosexuals. In fact, in this very context Francis speaks of confession. “This is also the great benefit of confession as a sacrament: evaluating case by case and discerning what is the best thing to do for a person who seeks God and grace.” Thinking Faith, Sept. 19, 2013, p. 8.

The Vatican II sect would only consider homosexual acts, not the homosexual orientation, matters for confession. (both are equally wrong, however).

Antipope John Paul II, New Catechism, #2357: “Homosexuality… Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained.”

And Joseph Ratzinger (Benedict XVI) and John Paul II both approved of the following statement concerning homosexuality:

“Sacred Scripture condemns homosexual acts “as a serious depravity... (cf. Rom 1:24-27; 1 Cor 6:10; 1 Tim 1:10). This judgment of Scripture does not of course permit us to conclude that all those who suffer from this anomaly [homosexuality] are personally responsible for it, but it does attest to the fact that homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered”. …

The Sovereign Pontiff John Paul II, in the Audience of March 28, 2003, approved the present Considerations, adopted in the Ordinary Session of this Congregation, and ordered their publication.

Rome, from the Offices of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, June 3, 2003, Memorial of Saint Charles Lwanga and his Companions, Martyrs.

Joseph Card. Ratzinger

Prefect”

(Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), Considerations Regarding Proposals To Give Legal Recognition To Unions Between Homosexual Persons, nr. 4, 2003)

By the way, Scripture is quite clear that the homosexual orientation is unnatural and results from mortal sin, idolatry and apostasy. See Romans chapter 1.

Romans 1:26-27: “For this cause God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature. And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts one towards another, men with men working that which is filthy, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error.”

People can be delivered from it by the grace of God. See Overcoming Homosexuality.

Francis then speaks in the very same context of gay “marriage”. That obviously refers to, and includes practicing homosexuals. Francis also says in this very context, “that we must consider their situation” and look upon things with “mercy” which come in the context of his reference to confession, and which can only have meaning if he’s referring to practicing homosexuals, since the Vatican II sect would only consider homosexual acts, not the homosexual orientation, matters for confession.

Francis also applied his comments to both “homosexual persons” and to “homosexuality.”

Read carefully in context, there is no doubt that Francis’ teaching that he does not judge, condemn or reject homosexuals or homosexuality including practicing homosexuals. That is totally evil and it is heresy.

Vatican I – a Pope is the supreme judge of the faithful – Francis NO POPE!

Based upon Sacred Scripture, the Church has always taught that those who practice homosexuality, and have a homosexual orientation are condemned, judged and rejected.

1 Corinthians 6:9 explicitly teaches that homosexuals are rejected from the Kingdom of God and Romans 1:32 teaches that “not only they that do them, but they also that consent to them that do them… are worthy of death.” That means they are rejected and condemned, the opposite of what Francis teaches.

1 Corinthians 6:9-10: “Know you not that the unjust shall not possess the kingdom of God? Do not err: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, Nor the effeminate, nor sodomites [homosexuals], nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor railers, nor extortioners, shall possess the kingdom of God.”

Romans 1:32: “Who, having known the justice of God, did not understand that they who do such things, are worthy of death; and not only they that do them, but they also that consent to them that do them.”

So not only the people who are homosexuals are worthy of death, but also those who promote this sinful lifestyle! So this is a clear warning that homosexuals are judged and that they will be judged.

Pope St. Pius V, Horrendum Illud Scelus, August 30, 1568: “We establish that any priest or member of the clergy, either secular or regular, who commits such an execrable crime, by force of the present law be deprived of every clerical privilege, of every post, dignity and ecclesiastical benefit, and having been degraded by an ecclesiastical judge, let him be immediately delivered to the secular authority to be put to death, as mandated by law as the fitting punishment for laymen who have sunk into this abyss.” (In Bullarium Romanum, Rome: Typographia Reverendae Camerae Apostolicae, Mainardi, 1738, chap. 3, p. 33)

Francis’ position is heretical. It constitutes a new false Gospel.

The Church calls homosexuals out of their wickedness and out of their perversion. It calls them to convert. But as they are, they are in a state of condemnation.

Francis’ evil and heretical comments about homosexuality come at a time when acceptance of homosexuality is sweeping the World. It’s dominating. It’s moving so quickly that people who adhere to the Biblical position on homosexuality cannot even run a business in some places.

Francis doing the work of the Devil

Francis’ wicked statement is exactly what the world did not need to hear. It’s exactly the message the Devil wanted the World to hear to keep it moving without hindrance on its path of perversion.

On p. 8 Francis continues his discussion of homosexuality. He also gets into contraception and abortion. This is a passage which the media gave quite a lot of attention to, He says:

“We cannot insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods. This is not possible.” He goes on to say, “The teaching of the church, for that matter, is clear and I am a son of the church, but it is not necessary to talk about those issues all the time.” Thinking Faith, Sept. 19, 2013, p. 8.

Since the Vatican II sect does nothing to stop abortion, gay “marriage” and contraception, as proven by the fact that people who support those evils go to “communion” freely, not only at Francis’ false services, but all over the Vatican II sect, Francis’ statement that we should not talk about those issues all the time, clearly means in context, that he doesn’t want these issues stressed or emphasized, that he doesn’t want people to consider opposition to these evils, prerequisites or requirements to consider someone a Catholic.

In fact, in this context, he goes on to say, “The dogmatic and moral teachings of the church are not all equivalent… Proclamation in a missionary style focuses on the essentials, on the necessary things; … We have to find a new balance.”

When he says that, “we must focus on the essentials, on the necessary things,” and he’s speaking in the context of dogmatic and moral truths, such as the Church’s teaching against the aforementioned evils, he’s actually teaching the very false doctrine condemned by Pope Pius XI in Mortalium Animos.

Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos (# 9), January 6, 1928: “in connection with things which must be believed, it is nowise licit to use that distinction which some have seen fit to introduce between those articles of faith which are fundamental and those which are not fundamental, as they say, as if the former are to be accepted by all, while the latter may be left to the free assent of the faithful: for the supernatural virtue of faith has a formal cause, namely the authority of God revealing, and this is patient of no such distinction. For this reason it is that all who are truly Christ’s believe, for example, the Conception of the Mother of God without stain of original sin with the same faith as they believe the mystery of the August Trinity, and the Incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ, just as do the infallible teaching authority of the Roman Pontiff...”

Pius XI is condemning the idea that when you consider things that have been infallibly taught by the Church, some can be considered fundamental and others can be considered non-fundamental or as Francis says, “Some can be considered as essential and others can be considered non-essential,” from the standpoint of one’s obligation to accept those teachings when they are proposed to you. No, you must accept all of them!

Francis is clearly making the very distinction Pius XI condemned.

He’s saying it’s not really necessary to oppose abortion, gay “marriage” and contraception as his previous statements about how “he doesn’t judge or condemn the homosexuals” prove, and, as proven by the fact that people who support those evils go to “communion” freely, not only at Francis’ false services, but all over the Vatican II sect.

Feeding the poor-Francis’ essentials

What’s essential to him is “feeding the poor” and “accepting all sinners.” It doesn’t really matter if you oppose gay “marriage” contraception and abortion.

And, since the Vatican II sect doesn’t condemn the evils in reality, his attempt to de-emphasize these issues clearly indicates in context DON’T INSIST UPON THEM.

It is purely evil and it’s further proof he’s a complete heretic and apostate. The very distinction he draws is a heretical one condemned by the Church.

The fact that this is the meaning – that this is the meaning he is conveying – is precisely why the notorious Pro-abortion group, NARAL, thanked Antipope Francis for his comments.

Pro-choice NARAL love Francis!

They recognized that Francis’ statements mean that people do not have to insist upon opposition to abortion, contraception and gay “marriage.”

Now, on p. 3, Francis discusses his motto and that his motto is that of John XXIII. He says: “‘See everything, turn a blind eye to much; correct a little.’ John XXIII saw all things, the maximum dimension, but he chose to correct a few, the minimum dimension.” Thinking Faith, Sept. 19, 2013, p. 3

So Francis’ motto is that he turns a blind eye to much, and when you consider that the matters that he’s turning a blind eye to involve heresy, sin, the violation of God’s law, it shows you what a wicked apostate he is.

Apostate Francis-turning a blind eye

Francis’ homo-heresy interview is further proof that he’s a heretical non-Catholic antipope and that the organization he leads, the Vatican II sect is not the Catholic Church but the End Times Counter Church.

Francis’ Heresies on God

Francis has been making headlines ever since he was elected Antipope on March 13, 2013, and now he’s getting even more attention. “I believe in God, not in a Catholic God,” he said in an interview.

Antipope Francis, October 1, 2013: “And I believe in God. Not in a catholic God; a catholic God does not exist; God exists. And I believe in Jesus Christ, his incarnation. Jesus is my master/teacher and pastor, but God, the Father, Abba, is the light and the Creator. This is my Being. Do you think we are very far apart?” Francis said in the interview with the Italian newspaper La Repubblica.

Bergoglio is a complete Modernist on top of an apostate and heretic. First, he says, “There is no Catholic God;” which is complete heresy; and then he says, “And I believe in Jesus Christ, his [Francis’ non-Catholic God’s] incarnation.” Jesus is the Second Person of the Holy Trinity and is God, the Catholic God, He is the Incarnation of God and, as the Last Gospel makes clear, is God.

Francis then says, “God is my light, Jesus is my teacher. This is my Being. Do you think we are very far apart?” Yes, Francis, we believe you are very far apart. In fact, you are as far apart from God the Father as Hell is from Heaven!

Francis is clearly on a mission to try to destroy anything Catholic. He doesn’t even believe in the Catholic God, let alone believing that the Catholic faith is necessary for salvation. Francis is a clear Modernist/Heretic/Apostate, like Martin Luther was a Lutheran and Arius was an Arian. And modernism is a condemned heresy just like Arianism or Luthernism.

Francis’ Heresies on the Jews

Jews reject that Jesus Christ is God, but Jesus says in John 8:24: “For if you believe not that I am he, you shall die in your sin.”

Francis and the Jews

The Catholic Church infallibly teaches that you must believe in Jesus Christ and have the Catholic faith for salvation.

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, The Athanasian Creed, Sess. 8, Nov. 22, 1439, ex cathedra: “Whoever wishes to be saved, needs above all to hold the Catholic faith; unless each one preserves this whole and inviolate, he will without a doubt perish in eternity.”

It teaches that it’s a mortal sin to observe or practice Judaism. Jews practice the Old Law and reject the Trinity and the Divinity of Christ in addition to calling Christ a deceiver or a complete myth invented by the Christians – yet, despite this, many so-called Christians actually claim that the Jews are “good”, or that they can be saved or that they remain “God’s chosen” people.

The Catholic Church teaches the following about the cessation of the Old Law and about all who continue to observe it:

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, 1441, ex cathedra: “The Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes and teaches that the matter pertaining to the law of the Old Testament, the Mosaic law, which are divided into ceremonies, sacred rites, sacrifices, and sacraments… after our Lord’s comingceased, and the sacraments of the New Testament began, and that whoever, even after the passion, placed hope in these matters of the law and submitted himself to them as necessary for salvation, as if faith in Christ could not save without them, sinned mortally. All, therefore, who after that time (the promulgation of the Gospel) observe circumcision and the Sabbath (not to be mistaken with the Christian Sabbath) and the other requirements of the law [that is, practicing Jews], the holy Roman Church declares alien to the Christian faith and not in the least fit to participate in eternal salvation.”

But in his astounding Apostolic Exhortation, “Evangelii Gaudium,” which Francis, by the way addressed to the universal Church, he professes that the Jews have a valid covenant with God (247), contrary to the teaching of the Catholic Church in the dogmatic Council of Florence, as we just saw above.

Evangelii Gaudium

Antipope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium (# 247), Nov. 24, 2013: “We hold the Jewish people in special regard because their covenant with God has never been revoked...”

Francis went on to say: “As Christians, we cannot consider Judaism as a foreign religion; nor do we include the Jews among those called to turn from idols [false gods] and to serve the true God [i.e., Francis says Jews are not to be considered to be as those who turn from false gods in order to serve the true God Jesus Christ and the Trinity since he already believes they serve the true God!]... With them, we believe in the one God who acts in history, and with them we accept his revealed word.” (Evangelii Gaudium, # 247)

This is apostasy; it is a denial of Christ. It alone proves that Francis is not the Pope since he totally denies, rejects, and spits upon the Council of Florence.

Pope Gregory XVI, Mirari Vos (# 13), Aug. 15, 1832: “With the admonition of the apostle that ‘there is one God, one faith, one baptism’ (Eph. 4:5) may those fear who contrive the notion that the safe harbor of salvation is open to persons of any religion whatever. They should consider the testimony of Christ Himself that ‘those who are not with Christ are against Him,’ (Lk. 11:23) and that they disperse unhappily who do not gather with Him. Therefore, ‘without a doubt, they will perish forever, unless they hold the Catholic faith whole and inviolate’ (Athanasian Creed).”

It is true that some aspects of the Old Covenant are still valid because they are included in the New and Eternal Covenant of Jesus Christ, such as the ten commandments, but the Old Covenant itself (the agreement between God and the Jewish people) ceased with the coming of the Messiah. Therefore, to say that the Old Covenant is still valid is to assert that Judaism is a true religion and that Jesus Christ is not really the Messiah. It is also, as has been noted, to deny defined Catholic dogma, such as the teaching of The Council of Florence, which defined ex cathedra that the Old Law is now dead and that those who practice it (namely, the Jews) cannot be saved.

Pope Benedict XIV reiterated this dogma in his encyclical Ex Quo Primum.

Pope Benedict XIV, Ex Quo Primum (# 61): “The first consideration is that the ceremonies of the Mosaic Law were abrogated by the coming of Christ and that they can no longer be observed without sin after the promulgation of the Gospel.”

The destruction of the Jewish Temple in 70 A.D. by the Romans, leaving only the Western Wall, has always been understood by Catholics to signify God’s judgment on the Jews. The Jews pray at the Western Wall as the holiest site in Judaism. The destruction of the Temple prohibited Jews from being able to offer sacrifice, which meant that their religion had come to an end. The destruction of the Temple was God’s powerful sign to the Jews that the Messiah had come, that the Old Covenant had ceased, and that the Temple had been replaced by the Catholic Church. So when a Jew prays at the Western Wall, or leaves a prayer there, or participates in Jewish religious services, it is a denial that Jesus is the Messiah; it is an affirmation that he holds that the Old Covenant is still in force; and it is a pitiful and sad attempt to ignore God’s very obvious sign that the Jews must abandon the destroyed Temple (the obsolete faith) and enter the Catholic Church.

John Paul II, Benedict XVI and Francis praying at the Wailing or Western Wall in Jerusalem

But even though, as we have seen, “the Mosaic law, which are divided into ceremonies, sacred rites, sacrifices, and sacraments… after our Lord’s coming… ceased,” Antipope Francis endorses the false religion of Judaism and prays in Jewish synagogues:

Francis, Conversations With Jorge Bergoglio, p. 208: “Not long ago I was in a synagogue taking part in a ceremony. I prayed a lot and, while praying, I heard a phrase from one of the books of wisdom that had slipped my mind: ‘Lord, may I bear mockery in silence.’ It gave me much peace and joy.”

Contrary to Francis’ apostasy, the Catholic Church forbids Catholics to enter Jewish synagogues or the meetinghouses of the heretics “to join in prayer with them”.

Third Council of Constantinople, 680-681: “If any ecclesiastic or layman shall go into the synagogue of the Jews or the meetinghouses of the heretics to join in prayer with them, let them be deposed and deprived of communion. If any bishop or priest or deacon shall join in prayer with heretics, let him be suspended from communion.”

Council of Carthage: “One must neither pray nor sing psalms with heretics, and whoever shall communicate with those who are cut off from the communion of the Church, [i.e., heretics and schismatics such as Jews, Muslims, Protestants etc.] whether clergy or layman: let him be excommunicated.”

Francis also teaches that the people of Israel continue to be the “Chosen People” of God.

Francis, On Heaven and Earth, p. 188: “The [Vatican II] Church officially recognizes that the People of Israel continue to be the Chosen People. Nowhere does it say: ‘You lost the game, now it is our turn.’ It is a recognition of the People of Israel.”

This clearly means that Francis holds that people who reject Jesus Christ are the chosen people in God’s sight. This is a blasphemy against God.

This heresy on the Jews was also taught in Vatican II itself and by the other previous Vatican II antipopes.

Antipope Paul VI, Vatican II Declaration, Nostra Aetate (#4): “Although the Church is the new people of God, the Jews should not be presented as rejected or cursed by God, as if such views followed from the holy scriptures.”

For instance, Antipope John Paul II has repeatedly repudiated this dogma, a dogma taught by the Catholic Church for 2000 years, defined infallibly by the Council of Florence, and affirmed clearly by Pope Benedict XIV.

In an address to Jews in West Germany, Nov. 17, 1980, Antipope John Paul II spoke of quote, “the Old Covenant, never revoked by God…”

Antipope John Paul II, New Catechism of the Catholic Church, paragraph 121: “… for the Old Covenant has never been revoked.”

In 2001, the Pontifical Biblical Commission released a book entitled The Jewish People and Their Sacred Scriptures in the Christian Bible. This book rejects the dogma that the Old Covenant has ceased. It teaches that the Old Covenant is still valid, and that the Jews’ wait for the Coming of the Messiah (which was part of the Old Covenant) is also still valid. It teaches that Jesus doesn’t have to be seen as the prophesied Messiah; it is possible to see Him, as the Jews do, as not the Messiah and not the Son of God.

In section II, A, 5, The Jewish People and their Sacred Scriptures in the Christian Bible states:

Jewish messianic expectation is not in vain...”

In section II, A, 7, The Jewish People and their Sacred Scriptures in the Christian Bible states:

“…to read the Bible as Judaism does necessarily involves an implicit acceptance of all its presuppositions, that is, the full acceptance of what Judaism is, in particular, the authority of its writings and rabbinic traditions, which exclude faith in Jesus as Messiah and Son of GodChristians can and ought to admit that the Jewish reading of the Bible is a possible one…”

So, according to this Vatican book, Christians can and ought to admit that the Jewish position that Jesus is not the Son of God and the prophesied Messiah is a possible one! The preface for this totally heretical book was written by none other than Joseph Ratzinger, the now Benedict XVI.

This is antichrist!

1 John 2:22: “… he who denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist…”

Heresy is a rejection of a dogma of the Catholic Faith; apostasy is a rejection of the entire Christian Faith. This book contains both heresy and apostasy, fully endorsed by Benedict XVI.

When Vatican II teaches that Jews, despite not belonging to the Church, are not to be considered as rejected by God, that means they remain in a valid covenant with God and can be saved. That’s also how the apostates in the Vatican II sect understood and implemented Nostra Aetate. Francis’ heresy on the Old Covenant is simply a reiteration of the doctrine of Nostra Aetate and the statements of the previous antipopes. It is also a further formalization of that heresy as the official doctrine of the Counter Church, for Francis teaches it openly in an Apostolic Exhortation addressed to the entire Church.

In contrast to Francis’ and Vatican II’s official and heretical teaching that the Jewish people are “not rejected by God” as His “Chosen People” after the promulgation of the gospel, the Catholic Church rejects, condemns, anathematizes and repudiates the Jews as alienated from God and salvation “unless they are joined to the Church [and believe in Jesus Christ] before the end of their lives.” (Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, 1441, ex cathedra)

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, Bull Cantate Domino, 1442, ex cathedra: “… the holy Roman Church, founded on the words of our Lord and Savior, firmly believes, professes and preaches one true God, almighty, immutable and eternal, Father, Son and Holy SpiritTherefore it [the Church] condemns, rejects, anathematizes and declares to be outside the Body of Christ [and of God], which is the Church, whoever holds opposing or contrary views.”

Without even going into details, it should be obvious to all that the statement of Nostra Aetate (#4) and of Francis in On Heaven and Earth, p. 188 is heretical. Jews are rejected by God, because all who reject Jesus Christ are denied by God. This is a truth that Our Lord specifically revealed in Sacred Scripture.

Matthew 10:33: “But he that shall deny me before men, I will also deny before my Father who is in heaven.”

The word “deny” means to reject or to repudiate. Look it up in the dictionary. Therefore, Antipope Francis and the Vatican II sect and its antipopes are denying the divinely revealed truth of Matthew 10:33: he who denies Our Lord is rejected by Him. Thus, without even going farther into detail, one should easily see that Francis and Vatican II teaches blatant heresy. But it gets even worse when one considers this in more detail.

Consider the following. Council of Florence Bull Cantate Domino (quoted above) is a dogmatic definition on individuals who have a view on Our Lord Jesus Christ or the Holy Trinity that is contrary to that of the Church (e.g., Jews, etc.). The Council of Florence solemnly defines that whoever has a view contrary to the Church’s teaching on Our Lord and the Trinity (e.g., the Jews) is condemned and rejected. Note: the Council is not merely saying that the view contrary to Our Lord is rejected and condemned, but that the individual (e.g., the Jew) is condemned and rejected!

Francis – Jews not rejected by God

Francis’ Other Heresies on the Jews

Francis, On Heaven and Earth, p. 37: “There also exists the ministerial intercession of a rabbi or a priest who prays or asks for the health of another and it is granted. What gives credibility to a person who is healing according to the law of God is simplicity, humility and the absence of a spectacle.”

So Francis believes that Jewish rabbis who are rejected by God have a true spiritual ministry of intercession “according to the law of God”.

Francis, On Heaven and Earth, p. 220: Francis says to Jewish Rabbi Skorka: “I did not forget how you invited me twice to pray and to speak in the synagogue, and I invited you to speak to my seminarians about values.”

So Francis happily explains how he invited the Christ rejecting Jewish Rabbi Skorka to speak of values to his seminarians.

On the same page Francis also mentioned his interrreligious apostasy and explains how he, as “Archbishop” of Buenos Aires, brought about “changes” that recognized and benefited Christ rejecting false religions:

Francis, Francis, On Heaven and Earth, p. 220: “I do not know if you remember, when I began the Te Deum Masses as Archbishop, I came down with the nuncio accompanying the president and we walked him to the door. All of you, representatives from other faiths, would remain in your place, like puppets in an exhibition. I changed that: now the president goes up and greets all of the representatives of the other faiths. … but the representatives of other faiths also present their own prayers [at his interreligious prayer meetings]. Now there is greater participation.”

Here we clearly see that Antipope Francis directly approves of that members of all kinds of false religions are allowed to pray to the Devil in his own Church, which is total apostasy, and a mortal sin, and as if this is not evil enough, he is also directly instrumental in getting them there to pray to the Devil.

It would be laudable if this was done with an intention of converting them to Christ. However, as we have seen, Francis doesn’t believe in proselyting or converting anyone. For as Francis recently said in an interview to Eugenio Scalfari, an atheist, when being asked at one point if he was trying to convert him, Francis replied:

Convert you?” “Proselytism is solemn nonsense, it makes no sense.” The Repubblica, October 1, 2013

Thus all of Francis’ words and actions are merely concerned about “respecting” man and “respecting” their false religions – and trashing all about God’s true religion in the process. This is apostasy.

In the cathedral in Buenos Aires, Argentina on April 15, 1998 Francis held an interreligious service to honor deceased Jews. During this meeting, Francis said to the Jews: “we are all brothers, because we have the seal of God in our hearts”. The seal of God is baptism – which Jews reject.

The seal of God is Baptism, which the Jews reject

In September 2004, Francis participated in a Jewish service inside a synagogue and on November 9, 2005 Francis had another service in a Basilica commemorating deceased Jews. This included Francis lighting a candle in “honor” of them – i.e., the deceased condemned Jews.

The Catholic Church since the beginning has rejected the idea that an unbeliever in Christ could be saved. This is why, throughout the whole history of the Church, prayer, sacrifice and Christian burial were not allowed for unbelievers (and even catechumens) who died without faith and baptism.

Fr. William Jurgens, The Faith of the Early Fathers, Vol. 3, pp. 14-15: “If there were not a constant tradition in the Fathers that the Gospel message of ‘Unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Ghost [baptism] he cannot enter into the kingdom of God is to be taken absolutelythe tradition in fact is there; and it is likely enough to be found so constant as to constitute revelation.”

Therefore, one cannot attend non-Catholic services, funerals or weddings, let alone to pacify friends, relatives or co-workers and give non-Catholics the false impression that non-Catholic lives can lead to salvation or that non-Catholic weddings or religious services are pleasing to God.

Also, one definitely cannot go to the wedding reception or the funeral events after the services. To do so is to give the non-Catholics the same false impression: that their marriage is pleasing to God or that people can be saved as non-Catholics. A true Catholic must completely shun all events associated with non-Catholic funerals and weddings, including the reception events afterward.

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 form 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(II John 10).”

Francis attending a Jewish Rosh Hashanah service

In 2007, Francis attended Jewish Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) services at a synagogue in Argentina. He told the Jewish congregation during his visit that he went to the synagogue to examine his heart, “like a pilgrim, together with you, my elder brothers”.

On July 7, 2008 Francis endorsed Rabbi Sergio Bergman’s books. Francis called him a “believer” and said: “his job is the one of a rabbi who as our master helps us”.

Francis’ elder brothers

On June 7, 2010: Francis visited the Jewish Center in Argentina and called Jews “our elder brothers” and “the chosen people of God”. He also prayed in front of list of deceased Jews in order to “honor” them. Francis said: “That reminder is another link of pain, persecution and blood that the chosen people of God have suffered in history. I thank the Lord that on this day I am allowed to share part of the way with our elder brothers...” Again, Jews are no longer God’s chosen people since they reject Christ: “after our Lord’s coming [the old law, i.e., the Jewish religion]… ceased” (Dogmatic Council of Florence).

On October 11, 2012 Francis gave Rabbi Abraham Skorka – who is a Christ denier and a well-known supporter of homosexuality – an honorary degree at a “Catholic” university. After the rabbi received the degree, he said: “We are waiting for the Messiah [that is, they are still waiting for him to come whereas Christ the Messiah has already come], but in order for him to come we have to prepare the land…”

“Waiting for the Messiah”

So the Rabbi explicitly rejected the Messiah Jesus Christ right in front of Francis.

On November 12, 2012 Francis was the keynote speaker and took active part in another Jewish religious ceremony in the cathedral in Buenos Aires, Argentina. This Jewish religious ceremony was again dedicated to honor deceased Jews. The final candle commemorating deceased Jews was jointly lit by a rabbi and Francis.

Francis Commemorating Deceased Jews in Buenos Aires Cathedral

Under Francis’ direction, memorial services honoring deceased Jews have been celebrated in so-called Catholic churches in Argentina every year since 1998.

To take part in a Jewish religious ceremony for deceased, condemned Jews who died as enemies of Jesus Christ and of His Church is complete apostasy from the Catholic faith.

Apostolic Constitutions, Canon 65: “If any one, either of the clergy or laity, enters into a synagogue of the Jews or heretics to pray, let him be deprived and suspended.”

Council of Laodicea, Canon 33 (A.D. 364): “No one shall join in prayers with heretics or schismatics.”

Apostolic Constitutions, Canon 45: “Let a bishop, presbyter, or deacon, who has only prayed with heretics, be excommunicated: but if he has permitted them to perform any clerical office, let him be deposed.”

On March 13, 2013 just a few hours after Francis was elected Antipope, he sent out a greeting letter to the Christ-rejecting Chief Rabbi of Rome.

On March 25, 2013 Francis sent a telegram to Rome’s chief rabbi for Passover. This message constituted heresy and apostasy, because in it Antipope Francis endorsed the false religion of Judaism, and he encouraged the Jews to observe their rites. Francis said that he esteems Jews and asked them to pray for him. He also asked that God “continue to deliver you from all evil” even though the Rabbi rejects Jesus – the only One who can deliver us from evil (cf. Matthew 6:13). L’ Osservatore Romano, March 27, 2013, p. 4.

In his June 24, 2013 address to members of the International Jewish committee, Francis called Jews “believers”, and asked Jews to pray for him.

Francis calls Jews “believers” at International Jewish Committee

Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum (# 5), June 29, 1896: “Whoever is separated from the Church is united to an adulteress. He has cut himself off from the promises of the Church, and he who leaves the Church of Christ cannot arrive at the rewards of Christ.”

Antipope Francis Practices Judaism

Over the last few days Antipope Francis hosted his friend, Jewish Rabbi, Abraham Skorka at the Vatican.

Antipope Francis and Rabbi Skorka – Best Friends

Skorka recently gave an interview about his stay with Francis. The incredible interview reveals more of Francis’ astounding apostasy and full acceptance of Judaism.

Skorka explains that during his stay with Francis at the Vatican, which began on September 25th 2013, Francis helped him practice Judaism and observed ceremonies of the Mosaic Law. Francis also responded to Skorka’s Jewish prayers and Francis rejected proselytizing him, that is, trying to convert Skorka to Catholicism.

The article is called “Francis and Rabbi Skorka make history in the Vatican. Skorka says:

“‘I eat with him at breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday. He cares for me, and controls everything regarding my food to make sure it is all kosher [foods that conform to the Jewish dietary law], and according to my religious tradition. These are festive days, and I have to say certain prayers at meals, and, I expand the last prayer and translate it. He accompanies me together with the others at the table – his secretaries and a bishop, and they all say ‘Amen’ at the end,’ the Rabbi said. ‘We come together without burying our identities. I spoke to him about evangelization, and he stated emphatically, that the Catholic Church cannot engage in proselytism, he said.’”

Francis’ actions clearly constitute heresy and apostasy, a total rejection of Jesus Christ and the Catholic Faith, because the Catholic Church dogmatically teaches that observance of the Old Law is forbidden under pain of mortal sin and the loss of salvation, and that Judaism is a false religion from which people must be converted to be saved. Antipope Francis’ message denies those truths and the necessity of Christ, Himself.

Francis and Rabbi Skorka

Who will dare to deny Jesus Christ and call this wicked apostate, Francis, who totally rejects Jesus Christ and His necessity, a representative, nay, the leader of the Church of Jesus Christ?

Francis is a heretic; he’s not a Catholic – according to Catholic teaching, heretics cannot be valid Popes.

The Catholic Encyclopedia, “Heresy,” 1914, Vol. 7, p. 261: “The pope himself, if notoriously guilty of heresy, would cease to be pope because he would cease to be a member of the Church.”

Francis and the Jews

Francis is nothing more than a non-Catholic antipope, falsely posing as the leader of the Catholic Church.

As was noted earlier, the Council of Florence defined as a dogma that it’s a mortal sin to observe Judaism or the Mosaic Law after the promulgation of the Gospel. The Council also stated Judaism and the Mosaic Law cannot be observed without the loss of eternal salvation.

Council of Florence

That’s a solemnly defined teaching of the Catholic Church. By helping Skorka practice Judaism and observe ceremonies of the Old Law, Francis blatantly denies the dogmatic teaching of the Catholic Church. Francis encourages Skorka to commit mortal sin and practice a non-Christian religion which rejects Jesus.

Francis’ action in this regard are heresy and apostasy because his deeds as well as words manifest his position, that it’s acceptable to practice Judaism, observe the Old Law and reject Jesus. And that position is a denial of Catholic dogma, as St. Thomas Aquinas taught, “Now man can make profession of his inward faith, by deeds as well as by words: and in either profession, if he makes a false declaration he sins mortally.” (Summa Theologica, I-II; Q. 103, A. 4).

Concerning Francis’ profession of faith in deed, he takes part in condemned Jewish worship, contrary to Catholic teaching, he takes part in non-Catholic worship. He even uses his “authority” to organize kosher meals and other aspects of condemned Jewish worship, so the Jews can observe the Mosaic laws contrary to the profession of the true faith.

Kosher Francis hosts Jewish leaders for kosher lunch and prays with them

In one such meeting in January 2014, Francis hosted Argentine Jewish leaders for a kosher lunch and joint prayer. Together Francis and the Jewish leaders intoned Psalm 133 in Hebrew, which says, “How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity.”

Francis thus professes in word and deed that Jews who reject the Son have unity with God the Father. The profession of the true faith is precisely the opposite. No one who denies the Son has salvation or unity with the Father. “No one who denies the Son has the Father.” (1 John 2:23)

“... whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.” (1 John 5:12)

So the answer to our question: “Does Francis profess the true faith?” - could not be more clear.

It’s a fact that Francis does not profess, state and display the true faith, but a false non-Catholic faith.

Francis displays a false non-Catholic faith

In his 1943 encyclical, Mystici Corporis Christii, Pope Pius XII taught, “Actually only those are to be included as members of the Church who have received the laver of regeneration and profess the true faith...” It is the teaching of the Catholic Church that you can only consider as members of the Catholic Church those who have received the laver of regeneration (that is, water baptism) and profess the true faith.

According to Catholic teaching, therefore, Francis cannot be counted among the members of the Church, for only those who are baptized and profess the true faith are to be considered members of the Church.

That’s precisely why Pope Leo XIII declared in the encyclical “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.”

Skorka’s revelation that Francis also rejects trying to evangelize/proselytize/convert him, further proves that Francis rejects the defined Catholic dogma, ‘Outside the Church There is No Salvation,’ and the dogma that faith in Jesus Christ is necessary for salvation.

Francis is not just a complete apostate who endorses Judaism and repudiates Catholic teaching, but it’s true to say that Francis is actually a practicing Jew. That’s because Francis celebrates Jewish holidays and has repeatedly participated in Jewish ceremonies and worship.

Bergoglio Celebrating Hanukkah with Argentinian Jews, December 2012

On December 14, 2012, just a few months before his election as antipope – Francis celebrated Hanukkah with Jews in the synagogue which included Francis lighting a menorah, and as Rabbi Skorka noted, when Skorka said his prayers and conducted Judaic ceremonies in observance of the Old Law and on the festival days of Judaism, Francis helped and even participated by saying ‘Amen.’ Francis has thus repeatedly engaged in active participation in Judaism.

That means that in addition to being a heretical antipope, who falsely claims to be a Catholic, Francis is a practicing Jew!

Francis’ Heresies on Islam

Islam is a false religion which denies the Divinity of Christ and rejects the Most Holy Trinity. Besides rejecting the true God, Islam allows polygamy up to four wives, and its followers (Muslims) spread this false religion with a zeal unequalled by the others. Islam is the most viciously anti-Christian major false religion in the world. To convert to Christianity in many Islamic countries means death. The propagation of the true Faith is strictly prohibited by the Muslims. Islamic society is one of the most evil things in human history.

The Catholic Church officially considers Islam an “abominable” and “diabolical” sect.

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Basel, Session 19, Sept. 7, 1434: “… there is hope that very many from the abominable sect of Mahomet will be converted to the Catholic faith.”

Pope Callixtus III, 1455: “I vow to… exalt the true Faith, and to extirpate the diabolical sect of the reprobate and faithless Mahomet [Islam] in the East.”

An “abomination” is something that is abhorrent in God’s sight; it’s something that He has no esteem for and no respect for. Something “diabolical” is something of the Devil. Islam rejects, among many other dogmas, the Divinity of Jesus Christ and the Trinity. Its followers are outside the pale of salvation so long as they remain Muslims.

Pope Clement V, Council of Vienne, 1311-1312: “It is an insult to the holy name and a disgrace to the Christian faith that in certain parts of the world subject to Christian princes where Saracens [i.e., the followers of Islam, also called Muslims] live, sometimes apart, sometimes intermingled with Christians, the Saracen priests, commonly called Zabazala, in their temples or mosques, in which the Saracens meet to adore the infidel Mahomet, loudly invoke and extol his name each day at certain hours from a high place… There is a place, moreover, where once was buried a certain Saracen whom other Saracens venerate as a saint. This brings disrepute on our faith and gives great scandal to the faithful. These practices cannot be tolerated without displeasing the divine majesty. We therefore, with the sacred council’s approval, strictly forbid such practices henceforth in Christian lands. We enjoin on Catholic princes, one and all… They are to remove this offense together from their territories and take care that their subjects remove it, so that they may thereby attain the reward of eternal happiness. They are to forbid expressly the public invocation of the sacrilegious name of Mahomet… Those who presume to act otherwise are to be so chastised by the princes for their irreverence, that others may be deterred from such boldness.”

While the Church teaches that all who die as non-Catholics are lost, it also teaches that no one should be forced to embrace baptism, since belief is a free act of the will.

Pope Leo XIII, Immortale Dei (#36), Nov. 1, 1885: “And, in fact, the Church is wont to take earnest heed that no one shall be forced to embrace the Catholic faith against his will, for, as St. Augustine wisely reminds us, ‘Man cannot believe otherwise than of his own will.’”

The teaching of the Council of Vienne that Christian princes should enforce their civil authority to forbid the public expression of the false religion of Islam shows again that Islam is a false religion which leads souls to Hell (not Heaven) and displeases God.

Yet on August 2, 2005 Francis payed honor and prayed before the dead body of the sworn enemy of Jesus Christ, the eternally condemned Muslim president of the Islamic Center of Argentina. The body was placed east toward Mecca.

Antipope Francis prays at the Islamic Center of Argentina

Francis said: “With my prayer I ask the creator, the most merciful to repay him for all the good he did”.

The Islamic imam recited verses from the Koran and asked for “blessings” from Muhammad in the presence of Francis. The Koran and its writer, Muhammad, and all Muslims who adhere to it blasphemes the Trinity, denies the Divinity of Christ, and says those who believe in it are as excrement. It also says that all Christians are damned.

St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica, Pt. II, Q. 12, A. 1, Obj. 2: “… if anyone were to… worship at the tomb of Mahomet, he would be deemed an apostate.”

St. Thomas says that one who worships at the tomb of Mahomet is to be deemed an apostate; Francis’ action of venerating the dead body of a Muslim leader who rejected and blasphemed Christ and the Christian religion during his life is equivalent to worshipping at the tomb of the reprobate Muhammad. That’s why no pope in history ever even went into a mosque or participated in a false religious ceremony; they all knew that to even go there would be to signify the acceptance of the false religion.

John Paul II bowed to and kissed the Koran
On May 14, 1999, John Paul II bowed to and kissed the Koran. The Koran is the Muslims’ “holy” book which blasphemes the Most Holy Trinity and denies the Divinity of Jesus Christ. To revere the holy book of a false religion has always been considered an act of apostasy – a complete rejection of the true religion. This act alone made John Paul II an apostate; for it is equivalent to worshipping at the tomb of Mahomet, which St. Thomas points out would make one an apostate.

Antipope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium (# 252), Nov. 24, 2013: “The sacred writings of Islam...”

On June 29, 2010 Francis visited an Islamic Center and said: “I came as a brother to strengthen ties.”

Francis “strengthening ties” with Muslim brothers

In his Homily of July 8, 2013 Francis spoke to Muslims saying: “I also think with affection of those Muslim immigrants who this evening begin the fast of Ramadan, which I trust will bear abundant spiritual fruit.”

Francis wants to grow in esteem with the believers of this diabolical sect; he says they are his brothers; he wishes them “abundant spiritual fruit” during their Ramadan fast. This is simply apostasy.

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, 1441, ex cathedra: “The Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that all those who are outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans but also Jews or heretics and schismatics, cannot share in eternal life and will go into the everlasting fire which was prepared for the Devil and his angels, unless they are joined to the Church before the end of their lives; that the unity of this ecclesiastical body is of such importance that only for those who abide in it do the Church’s sacraments contribute to salvation and do fasts, almsgiving and other works of piety and practices blood in the name of Christ, unless he has persevered in the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church.”

Please notice that as the Council of Florence was dogmatically defining the necessity of the Catholic Faith for salvation, it emphasized the prayers, almsgiving and fasts of those inside the bosom of the Church. It stated that such almsgiving will not profit one who is outside the Church.

Antipope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium (# 252), Nov. 24, 2013: “it is admirable to see how Muslims both young and old, men and women, make time for daily prayer and faithfully take part in religious services.”

It’s interesting that Vatican II, in praising the Muslims and their false religion, uses almost the exact same language as the Council of Florence, but again with a contrary meaning: Vatican II document, Nostra aetate # 3, just as Francis does, praises the fasts, almsgiving and prayers of members of a false non-Catholic religion.

Vatican II document, Nostra aetate # 3: “The Church also looks upon Muslims with respect. They worship the one God living and subsistent, merciful and almighty, creator of heaven and earth, who has spoken to humanity and to whose decrees, even the hidden ones, they seek to submit themselves wholeheartedly, just as Abraham, to whom the Islamic faith readily relates itself, submitted to GodHence they have regard for the moral life and worship God in prayer, almsgiving and fasting.”

Here we find Vatican II teaching that Muslims worship the one God, the Creator of Heaven and Earth. This is similar to, but slightly different from, the heresy in Lumen Gentium. The false god of the Muslims (which is not the Trinity) didn’t create Heaven and Earth. The Most Holy Trinity created Heaven and Earth.

Pope St. Leo IX, Congratulamur vehementer, April 13, 1053: “For I firmly believe that the Holy Trinity, the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, is one omnipotent God, and in the Trinity the whole Godhead is co-essential and consubstantial, co-eternal and co-omnipotent, and of one will, power, majesty; the creator of all creation, from whom all things, through whom all things, in whom all things which are in heaven or on earth, visible or invisible. Likewise I believe that each person in the Holy Trinity is the one true God, complete and perfect.”

Moslems don’t worship the one true God, the Holy Trinity, together with Catholics. To assert that Muslims do worship the same God as Catholics is heresy. Even a child can understand that we don’t have the same God.

Pope Gregory XVI, Summo Iugiter Studio (# 6), May 27, 1832: “Therefore, they must instruct them in the true worship of God, which is unique to the Catholic religion.”

Pope St. Gregory the Great: “The holy universal Church teaches that it is not possible to worship God truly except in Her...”

Pope Gregory XVI, Summo Iugiter Studio (# 2), May 27, 1832: “Finally some of these misguided people attempt to persuade themselves and others that men are not saved only in the Catholic religion, but that even heretics may attain eternal life.”

Perhaps the most striking heresy in the whole of Vatican II is found in Lumen Gentium 16. Here we find the Vatican II sect and it’s antipopes teaching that the Muslims’ god (who is not Jesus Christ) will judge mankind on the last day. This means Jesus Christ will not judge mankind on the last day, but rather the god whom the Muslims worship will. This is a denial of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ to judge the living and the dead.

Vatican II document, Lumen Gentium # 16: “But the plan of salvation also embraces those who acknowledge the Creator, and among these the MOSLEMS are first; they profess to hold the faith of Abraham AND ALONG WITH US THEY WORSHIP THE ONE MERCIFUL GOD WHO WILL JUDGE HUMANITY ON THE LAST DAY.”

Paul VI, Address, Sept. 18, 1969: “… Moslemsalong with us adore the one and merciful God, who on the last day will judge mankind.”

Paul VI, Address, Dec. 2, 1977: “… the Moslems (who) profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind’s judge on the last day, as the Second Vatican Council solemnly declared.”

John Paul II, New Catechism (paragraph 841): “… Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind’s judge on the last day.”

Antipope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium (# 252), Nov. 24, 2013: “Islam... they “profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, who will judge humanity on the last day...”

This is an amazing blasphemy! Catholics are worshippers of Jesus Christ and the Most Holy Trinity; the Muslims are not! And Moslems certainly don’t worship God who will judge mankind on the last day, Jesus Christ.

Pope St. Damasus I, Council of Rome, Can. 15: “If anyone does not say that HE (JESUS CHRIST) WILL COME TO JUDGE THE LIVING AND THE DEAD, HE IS A HERETIC.”

Some people attempt to defend this awful heresy of Vatican II by asserting that Muslims acknowledge and worship one all-powerful God. They argue thus: There is only one God. And since Muslims worship one all-powerful God – not many deities, as the polytheists – they worship the same all-powerful God that we Catholics do.

If it were true that Muslims worship the same God as Catholics because they worship one, all-powerful God, then anyone who professes to worship one, all-powerful God worships the one true God together with Catholics. There is no way around that. That would mean that those who worship Lucifer as the one true and all-powerful God worship the same God as Catholics! But this is clearly absurd. This should prove to anyone that the teaching of Vatican II is heretical. Those who reject the Holy Trinity don’t worship the same God as those who worship the Holy Trinity!

It’s clearly a denial of the Most Holy Trinity to assert that Muslims worship the true God without worshipping the Trinity. Secondly, and even worse when considered carefully, is the astounding statement that Muslims worship the One Merciful God Who will judge humanity on the last day! This is an incredible heresy. Muslims don’t worship Jesus Christ, who is humanity’s supreme judge on the last day. Therefore, they don’t worship God who will judge mankind on the last day! To say that Muslims do worship God who will judge mankind on the last day, as Vatican II does in Lumen Gentium 16, is to deny that Jesus Christ will judge mankind on the last day.

Pope St. Damasus I, Council of Rome, Can. 15: “If anyone does not say that HE (JESUS CHRIST) WILL COME TO JUDGE THE LIVING AND THE DEAD, HE IS A HERETIC.”

Vatican II also teaches that the Catholic Church looks upon Muslims with respect, who seek to submit themselves to God wholeheartedly, just as Abraham did. But Vatican II’s admiration for the infidel Muslims is not shared by the Catholic Church. The Church desires the conversion and eternal happiness of all the Muslims, but she recognizes that Islam is a horrible and false religion. She doesn’t pretend that they submit themselves to God. She knows that they belong to a false religion.

Pope Benedict XIV, Quod Provinciale, Aug. 1, 1754: “The Provincial Council of your province of Albania… decreed most solemnly in its third canon, among other matters, as you know, that Turkish or Mohammedan names should not be given either to children or adults in baptism… This should not be hard for any one of you, venerable brothers, for none of the schismatics and heretics has been rash enough to take a Mohammedan name, and unless your justice abounds more than theirs, you shall not enter the kingdom of God.”

In his July 10, 2013 message to Muslims for the end of Ramadan, Francis said: “esteem and friendship for all Muslims, especially those who are religious leaders. … Christians and Muslims, we are called to respect the religion of the other, its teachings, its symbols, its values. Particular respect is due to religious leaders and to places of worship. … think and speak respectfully of other religions and their followers, and to avoid ridiculing or denigrating their convictions and practices. … Happy Feast to you all!” (From the Vatican, Pontifical Messages, 10 July 2013)

To esteem and respect false religions, its teaching or its adherence as Francis does is condemned in Catholic teaching. In fact, to esteem and respect false religions that rejects Jesus Christ and the Trinity is equivalent to denying and disrespecting the Divinity of Jesus Christ, the Trinity, the Divine Maternity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, etc. It is apostasy from the Catholic Faith. As Pope Pius XI taught in Mortalium Animos (# 2), Jan. 6, 1928: “… it clearly follows that one who supports those who hold these theories and attempt to realize them, is altogether abandoning the divinely revealed religion.”

John Paul II also taught that Muslims and Catholics have the same God and that Catholics and Muslims together worship the one true God. John Paul II repeated this heresy of Vatican II countless times.

John Paul II, Encyclical On Social Concerns (# 47), Dec. 30, 1987: “… Muslims who, like us, believe in the just and merciful God.”

John Paul II, Homily, Oct. 13, 1989: “… the followers of Islam who believe in the same good and just God.”

John Paul II, Homily, Jan. 28, 1990: “… our Muslim brothers and sisters… who worship as we do the one and merciful God.”

John Paul II, General Audience, May 16, 2001: “… the believers of Islam, to whom we are united by the adoration of the one God.”

John Paul II, General Audience, May 5, 1999: “Today I would like to repeat what I said to young Muslims some years ago in Casablanca: ‘We believe in the same God…’”

This is blasphemy and apostasy. Muslims reject the Most Holy Trinity. They don’t worship the one true God. By asserting that Muslims and Catholics believe in the same God over and over again, John Paul II denied the Most Holy Trinity over and over again. Furthermore, one is struck by the specificity with which John Paul II (just like Vatican II) denied Jesus Christ in many of these quotations.

Here is what Benedict XVI thought about this false religion which rejects Christ and the Trinity:

Benedict XVI, General Audience, Sept. 20, 2006: “I hope that in the various circumstances during my Visit – for example, when in Munich I emphasized how important it is to respect what is sacred to others – that my deep respect for the great religions, and especially the Muslims, who ‘worship God…’ appeared quite clear!”

Notice that he has “deep respect” for not only the false religion of Islam, but other false religions as well, in addition to the Muslim “believers” themselves whom he says, “worship God”.

Benedict XVI, Address, Dec. 22, 2006: “My visit to Turkey afforded me the opportunity to show also publicly my respect for the Islamic Religion, a respect, moreover, which the Second Vatican Council (declaration Nostra Aetate #3) pointed out to us as an attitude that is only right.”

Notice that Benedict XVI admits here that Vatican II itself teaches respect for the false religion of Islam.

Benedict XVI, Address, Sept. 25, 2006: “I would like to reiterate today all the esteem and the profound respect that I have for Muslim believers, calling to mind the words of the Second Vatican Council which for the Catholic Church are the magna Carta of Muslim-Catholic dialogue: ‘The Church looks upon Muslims with respect. They worship the one God living and subsistent… At this time when for Muslims the spiritual journey of the month of Ramadan is beginning, I address to all of them my cordial good wishes, praying that the Almighty may grant them serene and peaceful lives. May the God of peace fill you with the abundance of his Blessings, together with the communities you represent!”

Benedict XVI respects the believers of this diabolical sect; he says they worship God; he wishes them God’s blessings during their “spiritual journey” of Ramadan. This is simply apostasy.

Benedict XVI, Pilgrim Fellowship of Faith, 2002, p. 273: “… Islam, too, … has inherited from Israel and the Christians the same God…”

Islam and Christianity don’t have the same God. The followers of Islam reject the Trinity. Christians worship the Trinity. This is simply apostasy.

Here is what Paul VI thought about this false religion which rejects Christ and the Trinity:

Paul VI, Speech, Sept. 9, 1972: “We would also like you to know that the Church recognizes the riches of the Islamic faith – a faith that binds us to the one God.”

Paul VI speaks about the “riches” of the Islamic Faith, a “Faith” that rejects Jesus Christ and the Trinity. He says this “Faith” binds us to the One God. This is apostasy.

Paul VI, Address to Muslim Ambassador, June 4, 1976: “… Moroccan Moslems… our brothers in faith in the one God. You will always be made very welcome and you will find esteem and understanding here.”

He says that Muslims are “brothers in the Faith in the one God.” This is apostasy. He then says that Muslims will always find esteem at the Vatican (i.e., the Vatican II sect).

Francis’ Heresies on Other False Religions

The Catholic Church teaches that all non-Catholic religions are false. There is only one true Church, outside of which no one can be saved. This is Catholic dogma.

Pope St. Gregory the Great, 590-604: “The holy universal Church teaches that it is not possible to worship God truly except in her and asserts that all who are outside of her will not be saved.” (The Papal Encyclicals, Vol. 1 (1740-1878), p. 230.)

All of the other religions belong to the Devil. This is the teaching of Jesus Christ, the Catholic Church and Sacred Scripture.

But the things which the heathens sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God.” (1 Corinthians 10:20)

For all the gods of the Gentiles are devils: but the Lord made the heavens.” (Psalm 95:5)

Anyone who shows esteem or respect for non-Christian religions, or regards them as good or deserving of respect, denies and disrespects Jesus Christ and is an apostate.

Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos (# 2), Jan. 6, 1928: “… that false opinion which considers all religions to be more or less good and praiseworthyNot only are those who hold this opinion in error and deceived, but also in distorting the idea of true religion they reject it, and little by little, turn aside to naturalism and atheism, as it is called; from which it clearly follows that one who supports those who hold these theories and attempt to realize them, is altogether abandoning the divinely revealed religion.”

Yet in On Heaven and Earth, p. 236 Francis wrote about new religious belief systems and movements. He stated: “I am respectful of all new spiritual proposals… Surviving the passage of time is the major test of spiritual purity.”

Hinduism has survived the “passage of time”

So, according to the apostate Francis, the false religion of Hinduism that leads souls to Hell is a “respectful” and “pure” spirituality because it has been around for 3,000 years and has survived “the passage of time”.

Kali, one of the approximately 330,000 false gods worshipped by the Hindus – a religion not condemned, but praised by Vatican II

Notice how specifically Francis’ praise for the false religion of Hinduism is contradicted by Pope Leo XIII:

Pope Leo XIII, Ad Extremas (#1), June 24, 1893: “Our thoughts turn first of all to the blessed Apostle Thomas who is rightly called the founder of preaching the Gospel to the Hindus. Then, there is Francis Xavier… Through his extraordinary perseverance, he converted hundreds of thousands of Hindus from the myths and vile superstitions of the Brahmans to the true religion. In the footsteps of this holy man followed numerous priests… they are continuing these noble efforts; nevertheless, in the vast reaches of the Earth, many are still deprived of the truth, miserably imprisoned in the darkness of superstition.”

Further, in his Apostolic Exhortation, “Evangelii Gaudium,” Francis professes that it’s admirable for Muslims to participate in daily Islamic prayers and religious services (252). He professes that non-Christians are justified by the grace of God (254), directly contrary to the Catholic profession of faith and Catholic dogma that only Christians, that is, those with the catholic faith can be justified. And, (254) of that document, Francis also speaks of non-Christian rites, signs and expressions, in other words, the false beliefs and wicked practices of non-Christian and pagan religions, as “God’s working” and things which “the Holy Spirit raises up.”

That, of course, is directly opposed to the profession of the Catholic faith, that false and non-Christian religions are the products of evil spirits.

Since we know from Sacred Scripture and Catholic teaching that Satan is the author of all non-Christian religions (see 1 Corinthians 10:20), what is being stated here by Antipope Francis is that the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, is actually the spirit of lies – Satan. This is an unbelievable blasphemy against God.

The Vatican II document, Nostra aetate also made sure to remind the world how great Buddhism is, and how this false religion leads to the highest illumination.

Vatican II document, Nostra aetate # 2: “In Buddhism, according to its various forms, the radical inadequacy of this changeable world is acknowledged and a way is taught whereby those with a devout and trustful spirit may be able to reach either a state of perfect freedom or, relying on their own efforts or on help from a higher source, the highest illumination.”

Vatican II says that in Buddhism “a way is taught” whereby men can reach the highest illumination! This is apostasy. This is one of the worst heresies in Vatican II. Further, read how Paul VI (the man who solemnly promulgated Vatican II) understood its teaching on Buddhism.

Paul VI, General Audience to Japanese Buddhists, Sept. 5, 1973: “It is a great pleasure for us to welcome the members of the Japanese Buddhists Europe Tour, honored followers of the Soto-shu sect of BuddhismAt the Second Vatican Council the Catholic Church exhorted her sons and daughters to study and evaluate the religious traditions of mankind and to ‘learn by sincere and patient dialogue what treasures a bountiful God has distributed among the nations of the earth’ (Ad Gentes, 11)… Buddhism is one of the riches of Asia…”

Basing himself on Vatican II (which he solemnly promulgated), Paul VI says that this false and pagan religion is one of the “riches of Asia”!

Vatican II also praises the false religion of Hinduism for its inexhaustible wealth of “penetrating philosophical investigations,” as well as its ascetical life and deep meditation.

Vatican II document, Nostra aetate # 2: “Thus in Hinduism the divine mystery is explored and propounded with an inexhaustible wealth of myths and penetrating philosophical investigations, and liberation is sought from the distresses of our state either through various forms of ascetical life or deep meditation or taking refuge in God with loving confidence.”

Truly two different religions:

Pope Leo XIII, Ad Extremas (#1), June 24, 1893: “… Through his extraordinary perseverance, he converted hundreds of thousands of Hindus from the myths and vile superstitions of the Brahmans to the true religion. In the footsteps of this holy man followed numerous priests… they are continuing these noble efforts; nevertheless, in the vast reaches of the Earth, many are still deprived of the truth, miserably imprisoned in the darkness of superstition.”

Pope Pius IX, Qui Pluribus (# 15), Nov. 9, 1846: “Also perverse is that shocking theory that it makes no difference to which religion one belongs, a theory greatly at variance even with reason. By means of this theory, those crafty men remove all distinction between virtue and vice, truth and error, honorable and vile action. They pretend that men can gain eternal salvation by the practice of any religion, as if there could ever be any sharing between justice and iniquity, any collaboration between light and darkness, or any agreement between Christ and Belial.”

Antipope Francis, On Heaven and Earth, p. 236: “I am respectful of all new spiritual proposals… Surviving the passage of time is the major test of spiritual purity.”

Vatican II document, Nostra aetate (# 2): “Thus in Hinduism the divine mystery is explored and propounded with an inexhaustible wealth of myths and penetrating philosophical investigations, and liberation is sought from the distresses of our state either through various forms of ascetical life or deep meditation or taking refuge in God with loving confidence.”

Antipope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium (# 254), Nov. 24, 2013: “Non-Christians [such as pagans and atheists], by God’s gracious initiative, when they are faithful to their own consciences, can live “justified by the grace of God”, and thus be “associated to the paschal mystery of Jesus Christ”… to the sacramental dimension of sanctifying grace... to live our own beliefs.”

Amid all of this blasphemy in Vatican II and Francis, no mention is made that these infidels must be converted to Christ; no prayer is offered that the Faith may be granted to them; and no admonition that these idolaters must be delivered from their impiety and the darkness of their superstitions. What we see is praise and esteem for these religions of the Devil. What we see is an unequivocal syncretism, which treats all religions as if they are paths to God.

Antipope Francis on Non-Catholic “Saints and Martyrs”

On December 14th, 2013, La Stampa published an interview that antipope Francis gave to the journalist, Andrea Tornielli.

In that interview antipope Francis teaches another massive heresy in addition to making numerous scandalous statements.

Francis discusses “ecumenism” with Anglicans, Lutherans and the so-called Orthodox.

He clearly teaches the condemned heresy that there are non-Catholic Saints and Martyrs. In fact, he even promotes the idea that a Lutheran “pastor” could be advanced to beatification.

Francis says that “Today there is an ecumenism of blood… whether people are Anglican, Lutheran, Catholic or Orthodox.”

Concerning the various groups, he says, “We are united in blood.” He then says, “I knew a parish priest in Hamburg who was dealing with the beatification cause of a Catholic priest guillotined by the Nazis for teaching children the catechism. After him, in the list of condemned individuals, was a Lutheran pastor who was killed for the same reason. Their blood was mixed. The parish priest told me he had gone to the bishop and said to him: “I will continue to deal with the cause, but both of their causes, not just the Catholic priest’s.” [Francis:] This is what ecumenism of blood is...”

Notice that Francis endorses and promotes the idea that a Lutheran who is killed could be advanced to “beatification.” This is formal heresy.

Pope Gregory XVI, Mirari Vos (# 13), Aug. 15, 1832: “With the admonition of the apostle that ‘there is one God, one faith, one baptism’ (Eph. 4:5) may those fear who contrive the notion that the safe harbor of salvation is open to persons of any religion whatever.”

Nothing could more clearly deny the solemnly defined Catholic dogma on No Salvation Outside the Church.

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, 1441, ex cathedra: “The Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that all those who are outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans but also Jews or heretics and schismatics cannot share in eternal life and will go into the everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels, unless they are joined to the Church before the end of their lives, and that no one, whatsoever 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 Eugene IV on the necessity of belonging to the Catholic Church for Salvation

This solemnly defined dogma of the Council of Florence was repeated by Pope Pius XI:

Pope Pius XI, Rappresentanti in terra (# 99), Dec. 31, 1929: “It stands out conspicuously in the lives of numerous saints, whom the Church, and she alone, produces, in whom is perfectly realized the purpose of Christian education…”

Pope Pelagius II declared the same in 585, a truth that has always been taught in the Church.

Pope Pelagius II, 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 the fire, 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.”

Francis is a formal heretic and an antipope.

Francis, Thinking Faith, p. 6: “I see the sanctity of God’s people… There is a ‘holy middle class’ … I see holiness in the patience of the people of God; a woman who is raising children, a man who works to bring home the bread, the sick, the elderly priests, the sisters, my dad, my mom, my grandmother Rosa… she is a saint.”

The point is, that he thinks everyone’s holy. He thinks everyone’s a saint; sin means nothing to this apostate. Anything goes. Everyone’s essentially going to heaven and everything’s fine, as long as you feed the poor and accept sinners and judge no one.

In the interview, Francis also makes it clear, once again, that he fully accepts the schismatic “Orthodox.” The “Orthodox” reject the papacy and other Catholic dogmas. Francis even calls “Orthodox” schismatic Tawadros, the leader of the Coptic schismatics, a mystic. Tawadros is a public heretic who leads a large group of individuals who dissent from Catholic teaching.

Tawadros the schismatic “Orthodox”

Francis has also rejected the necessity for “Orthodox” schismatics, like Tawadros to convert.

Francis is also asked about remarried divorcees receiving “communion.” He doesn’t rule it out but even endorse it even though he was given numerous opportunities to do so.

DailyMail, April 24, 2014: “The divorced woman Pope Francis ‘phoned to tell it was OK to take communion’ in strict breach of Catholic teaching - An Argentinian divorcee who got a personal phone call from the Pope to calm her worries about whether she could take communion as a divorced woman has been pictured for the first time. Jaqueline Sabetta, who married her new husband in 1994, asked the pontiff for advice about taking the Eucharist, which is traditionally forbidden for divorcees. In a significant break from Catholic doctrine, Pope Francis told her that she would be ‘doing no harm’. Mrs Sabetta, who is from Santa Fe in the Pope’s home country of Argentina, wrote to him last year asking what to do, ‘given that to take communion would be violating one of the rules of the church’. Seven months later she was amazed to receive a phone call at home from someone who ‘presented himself as father Bergoglio’, the Pope’s name before he was elected to lead the church. After apologising for the lateness of his response, Pope Francis reportedly said: ‘It is a question that we are discussing at the Vatican, because a divorced person who takes communion is not doing any harm.’ Last month he told a morning mass in Rome that divorcees should not be condemned, but rather, ‘accompanied’. The extraordinary phone call was revealed by Mrs Sabetta’s new husband Julio, who posted about it on Facebook on Easter Monday. The couple, who are both divorced from their first partners, married in 1994 and have two children. … The news will be a balm to Catholic divorcees around the world who presently feel excluded from the church by a sense of shame. A formal change in doctrine is expected be discussed at the Extraordinary Synod for the Family in October this year. In the run up to the gathering, which is similar to a parliament, the Vatican has commissioned a ‘sex survey’ from every diocese in the world asking for parishioners’ opinions on divorce, gay marriage and celibacy.”

It is important to remember Malachi 2:16: “I hate divorce, says the LORD God of Israel.” According to the Bible, marriage is a lifetime commitment. “So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate” (Matthew 19:6).

Matthew 19:9: “And I say to you, that whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and he that shall marry her that is put away, committeth adultery.”

Douay-Rheims Catholic Bible commentary explains: “Except it be: In the case of fornication, that is, of adultery, the wife may be put away [i.e., separation (not divorce)]: but even then the husband cannot marry another as long as the wife is living.”

Pope Leo XIII, Dum Multa (# 2), Dec. 24, 1902: “It follows then that the marriage of Christians when fully accomplished… cannot be dissolved for any reason other than the death of either spouse, according to the holy words: ‘What God has joined, let no man put asunder.’”

Divorce and remarriage is adultery. Antipope Francis, by teaching that “communion” can be given to these adulterers, thus encourages that sacrileges and mortal sins against Jesus Christ’s Body and Blood should be committed in his churches. “Give not that which is holy to dogs; neither cast ye your pearls before swine” (Matthew 7:6). That is why the Catholic Church has always refused divorcees to receive communion. Yet Francis has no problem with mortal sinners and adulterers receiving “Holy Communion” at his Church.

Francis makes a total mockery of the blood of the saints and martyrs who died for even one article of the Catholic faith. St. Thomas More, for example, was martyred because he refused to accept and acknowledge King Henry VIII’s invalid and sacrilegious marriage to Catherine of Aragon. So much for his martyrdom, according to Francis.

Speaking of God, Francis also says: “He waits for us; he never tires of waiting for us.”

Actually, God does tire of waiting for people, that’s why He condemns most people to Hell (Matthew 7:13).

Most people are condemned to Hell

Francis is a manifest heretic. According to Catholic Papal teaching a heretic cannot be a valid pope. Francis is an antipope.

Francis’ Heretical Teaching on Religious Freedom

Antipope Francis, Address, May 18, 2013: “… promote religious freedom for everyone, everyone! Every man and every woman must be free in his or her profession of religion, whatever it may be.” L’ Osservatore Romano, May 22, 2013, p. 11.

In his encyclical “Evangelii Gaudium” (255), Francis also professes that Religious Freedom, whereby everyone has the right to promote any religious view in public, is to be viewed a fundamental human right.

Antipope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium (# 255), Nov. 24, 2013: “The Synod Fathers spoke of the importance of respect for religious freedom, viewed as a fundamental human right. This includes “the freedom to choose the religion which one judges to be true and to manifest one’s beliefs in public”. A healthy pluralism, one which genuinely respects differences and values them as such, does not entail privatizing religions in an attempt to reduce them to the quiet obscurity of the individual’s conscience or to relegate them to the enclosed precincts of churches, synagogues or mosques. This would represent, in effect, a new form of discrimination and authoritarianism. The respect due to the agnostic or non-believing minority should not be arbitrarily imposed in a way that silences the convictions of the believing majority or ignores the wealth of religious traditions.”

The Catholic Church condemns the idea that religious freedom should be a universal civil right.

Pope Gregory XVI, Inter Praecipuas (# 14), May 8, 1844: “Experience shows that there is no more direct way of alienating the populace from fidelity and obedience to their leaders than through that indifference to religion propagated by the sect members under the name of religious liberty.”

Pope Leo XIII, Libertas (# 42), June 20, 1888: “From what has been said it follows that it is quite unlawful to demand, to defend, or to grant unconditional freedom of thought, of speech, or writing, or of worship, as if these were so many rights given by nature to man.”

Pope Leo XIII, Immortale Dei (# 34), Nov. 1, 1885: “Thus, Gregory XVI in his encyclical letter Mirari Vos, dated August 15, 1832, inveighed with weighty words against the sophisms which even at his time were being publicly inculcated – namely, that no preference should be shown for any particular form of worship; that it is right for individuals to form their own personal judgments about religion; that each man’s conscience is his sole and all-sufficing guide; and that it is lawful for every man to publish his own views, whatever they may be, and even to conspire against the state.”

Vatican II’s declaration on religious liberty was without question the most notorious of all the documents of Vatican II. This is because its teaching on religious liberty was so heretical, so contrary to the teaching of the Catholic Magisterium, that even the most liberal heretics had trouble rationalizing it.

Vatican II teaches that religious liberty should be a civil right, which is directly condemned by Pope Pius IX. Vatican II also says that this right to religious liberty applies to public, as well as private, expression; and that no one should be prevented from the public expression or practice of his religion:

Vatican II document, Dignitatis humanae # 2: “This Vatican synod declares that the human person has a right to religious freedom. Such freedom consists in this, that all should have such immunity from coercion by individuals, or by groups, or by any human power, that no one should be forced to act against his conscience in religious matters, nor prevented from acting according to his conscience, whether in private or in public, within due limits… This right of the human person to religious freedom should have such recognition in the regulation of society as to become a civil right.”

Vatican II document, Dignitatis humanae # 2: “Therefore this right to non-interference persists even in those who do not carry out their obligations of seeking the truth and standing by it; and the exercise of this right should not be curtailed, as long as due public order is preserved.”

It’s a dogma of the Catholic Church that States have a right, and indeed a duty, to prevent the members of false religions from publicly propagating and practicing their false faiths. States must do this to protect the common good – the good of souls – which is harmed by the public dissemination of evil. This is why the Catholic Church has always taught that Catholicism should be the only religion of the State, and that the State should exclude and forbid the public profession and propagation of any other.

We will now look at three propositions that were condemned by Pope Pius IX in his authoritative Syllabus of Errors.

Pope Pius IX, Syllabus of Errors (# 77), Dec. 8, 1864: “In this age of ours it is no longer expedient that the Catholic religion should be the only religion of the state, to the exclusion of all other cults whatsoever.” – Condemned statement by Pope Pius IX.

Notice, the idea that the Catholic religion should not be the only religion of the State, to the exclusion of other religions, is condemned. That means that the Catholic religion should be the only religion of the State and that the others should be excluded from public worship, profession, practice and propagation. The Catholic Church however doesn’t force nonbelievers to believe in the Catholic Faith, since belief (by definition) is a free act of the will.

Pope Leo XIII, Immortale Dei (#36), Nov. 1, 1885: “And, in fact, the Church is wont to take earnest heed that no one shall be forced to embrace the Catholic faith against his will, for, as St. Augustine wisely reminds us, ‘Man cannot believe otherwise than of his own will.’”

However, it teaches that Catholic States must forbid the propagation and public profession of false religions which lead souls to Hell.

Pope Pius IX, Syllabus of Errors (# 78), Dec. 8, 1864: “Hence in certain regions of Catholic name, it has been laudably sanctioned by law that men immigrating there be allowed to have public exercises of any form of worship of their own.” – Condemned statement by Pope Pius IX.

Pope Pius IX, Syllabus of Errors (# 55), Dec. 8, 1864: “The Church is to be separated from the state, and the state from the Church.” – Condemned statement by Pope Pius IX.

In Quanta Cura, Pope Pius IX also condemned the idea that every man should be granted the civil right to religious liberty.

Pope Pius IX, Quanta Cura (# 3), Dec. 8, 1864: “From which totally false idea of social government they do not fear to foster THAT ERRONEOUS OPINION, most fatal in its effects on the Catholic Church and the salvation of souls, called by Our predecessor, Gregory XVI, an insanity, NAMELY, THAT ‘LIBERTY OF CONSCIENCE AND WORSHIP IS EACH MAN’S PERSONAL RIGHT, WHICH OUGHT TO BE LEGALLY PROCLAIMED AND ASSERTED IN EVERY RIGHTLY CONSTITUTED SOCIETY…”

Thus it is abundantly clear that the teaching of Vatican II is direct heresy against the infallible teaching of Pope Pius IX and a host of other popes. The teaching of Vatican II on religious liberty could literally have been added to the errors of the Syllabus of Errors condemned by Pope Pius IX.

Vatican II’s heretical teaching on religious liberty (which Antipope Francis adheres too) is precisely the reason why, following Vatican II, a number of Catholic nations changed their Catholic constitutions in favor of secular ones! The Catholic constitutions of Spain and Colombia were actually suppressed at the express direction of the Vatican, and the laws of those countries changed to permit the public practice of non-Catholic religions.

Before changing its laws, the Spanish law decreed that the only ceremonies and public manifestations of religion would be Catholic.

Changes to the Spanish Catholic Law as a result of the teaching of Vatican II

The “Fuero de los Espanoles,” the fundamental law of the Spanish State adopted on July 17, 1945, forbade all propaganda activities on the part of false religions.

Article 6, 1: “The profession and practice of the Catholic Religion, which is that of the Spanish State, will enjoy official protection.”

Article 6, 2: “… the only ceremonies and other open manifestations of religion allowed will be Catholic.”

We can see that, in conformity with traditional Catholic teaching, the Spanish law decreed that the only ceremonies and public manifestations of religion would be Catholic. After Vatican II, however, the “Ley Organica del Estado” (Jan. 10, 1967) replaced this second paragraph of article 6 with the following:

The State will assume the protection of religious liberty which will be under the protection of the Judiciary responsible for safeguarding morals and public order.”

Moreover, the preamble to the Constitution of Spain, modified by this same “Ley Organica del Estado” after Vatican II, explicitly declared:

“... Given the modification introduced in Article 6 by the `Ley Organica del Estado,’ ratified by referendum of the nation, in order to adapt its text to the conciliar Declaration on religious liberty promulgated Dec. 7, 1965 [by Vatican II], which demands the explicit recognition of this right [religious liberty], and conforms moreover to the second fundamental Principle of the Movement according to which the teaching of the Church ought to inspire our laws…”

We can see that the second section of Article 6 of the 1945 Constitution was replaced by that of the 1967 precisely in order to bring the laws of Spain into agreement with the declaration of Vatican II! Perhaps this revision of Catholic laws in a Catholic country, which was made in order to conform to the new religion of Vatican II (now presided over by Antipope Francis), illustrates more than anything else the forces at work here. Spain went from a Catholic nation to a godless one, which now gives legal protection to divorce, sodomy, pornography and contraception, all thanks to Vatican II.

In line with its heretical teaching on religious liberty, Vatican II teaches the heresy that all religions have liberty of speech and liberty of the press.

Vatican II document, Dignitatis Humanae # 4: “In addition, religious communities are entitled to teach and give witness to their faith publicly in speech and writing without hindrance.”

The idea that everyone has the right to liberty of speech and the press has been condemned by many popes. We will only quote Pope Gregory XVI. Notice that Pope Gregory XVI called this idea (the very thing taught by Vatican II) harmful and “never sufficiently denounced.”

Pope Gregory XVI, Mirari Vos (# 15), Aug. 15, 1832: “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.”

All of this Catholic teaching directly contradicts the heretical teaching of Vatican II.

Francis on Interreligious Prayer Meetings

September 11, 2001

After the September 11, 2001 attacks in America, Francis participated in a interreligious prayer meeting with the leaders of other false religions, at the foot of an Obelisk in Argentina. The obelisk is a masonic phallic symbol.

In his Jan. 6, 1928 encyclical Mortalium Animos Pope Pius XI specifically condemned Catholic participation in interreligious prayer meetings as apostasy. He taught that those who favor this activity have abandoned the Catholic religion.

Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos (# 2), Jan. 6, 1928: “For since they [who seek to unite] hold it for certain that men destitute of all religious sense are very rarely to be found, they seem to have founded on that belief a hope that the nations, although they differ among themselves in certain religious matters, will without much difficulty come to agree as brethren in professing certain doctrines, which form as it were a common basis of the spiritual life. For which reason conventions, meetings and addresses are frequently arranged by these persons, at which a large number of listeners are present, and at which all without distinction are invited to join in the discussion, both infidels of every kind, and Christians, even those who have unhappily fallen away from Christ or who with obstinacy and pertinacity deny His divine nature and mission. Certainly such attempts can nowise be approved by Catholics, founded as they are on that false opinion which considers all religions to be more or less good and praiseworthy, since they all in different ways manifest and signify that sense which is inborn in us all, and by which we are led to the obedient acknowledgment of His rule. Not only are those who hold this opinion in error and deceived, but also in distorting the idea of true religion they reject it, and little by little, turn aside to naturalism and atheism, as it is called; from which it clearly follows that one who supports those who hold these theories and attempt to realize them, is altogether abandoning the divinely revealed religion.”

He also said: “So, Venerable Brethren, it is clear why this Apostolic See has never allowed its subjects to take part in the assemblies of non-Catholics.” (Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos # 10)

But, as we have already seen, Francis has been involved in numerous interreligious prayer meetings.

Francis commits interreligious apostasy with various false religions

On January 24, 2002, Francis invited many different leaders of false religions to pray in the cathedral in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The meeting included leaders from Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam and Judaism. Francis’ announcement during the meeting was that “every religious group will pray according to their faith, language and tradition, in full respect for others.” This is apostasy.

Universal Parliament of Religions

On May 5, 2006 Francis prayed with members of the “Universal Parliament of Religions” and in 2011 Francis held his own interreligious prayer meeting.

On March 20, 2013 Francis had a meeting with leaders of different religions which included schismatics, Jews and Muslims. Francis said: “Yesterday morning, during Holy Mass, through you I felt the spiritual presence of the communities which you represent…” L’ Osservatore Romano, March 27, 2013, p. 7.

A heretic, by infallible definition, is of bad faith and brings down upon his head eternal punishment.

Pope St. Celestine I, Council of Ephesus, 431: “... all heretics corrupt the true expressions of the Holy Spirit with their own evil minds and they draw down on their own heads an inextinguishable flame.”

As we have clearly shown, Francis completely rejects the infallible teaching of the Catholic Church that members of false religions need to accept the Catholic faith for salvation.

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, 1439, ex cathedra: “Whoever wishes to be saved, needs above all to hold the Catholic faith. Unless each one preserves this whole and inviolate, he will without a doubt perish in eternity.”

Francis’ Heresies on the Church

Francis, Thinking Faith, p. 13: “The view of the church’s teaching as a monolith to defend without nuance or different understanding is wrong.”

In the context of discussing the deposit of faith and how the Church’ teaching is transmitted from one era to another, he plainly states that it is wrong to view the church’s teaching as a monolith, that is as something with an immoveable or inflexible character that is to be defended without different understanding.

He therefore openly teaches that it is wrong to believe the Church’s teaching, that is, that dogma cannot have an understanding that is different from what it had before. That is blatant heresy!

The First Vatican Council infallibly declared:

“Hence, also that understanding of its [the Church’s] sacred dogmas must be perpetually retained, which Holy Mother Church has once declared; and there must never be a recession from that meaning under the specious name of a deeper understanding.”

Vatican I condemns Antipope Francis

It also taught that there must be “the same doctrine, the same sense, and the same understanding.”

The idea that the understanding of Church teaching or dogma (such as the dogma on the Divinity of Christ) can be different from what it was previously is heresy and heresy on a basic rudimentary matter of faith. It absolutely proves that Francis is not remotely a Catholic.

In fact, consistent with his heretical views that the understanding of Church teaching can change with time, he also says in this context, “Here, human self-understanding changes with time and so also human consciousness deepens.” Thinking Faith, Sept. 19, 2013, p.13

It is condemned heresy to believe that the understanding of Church teaching changes with time.

As the First Vatican Council declared on January 6, 1870:

If anyone says that it is possible that at some time given the advancement of knowledge, a sense may be assigned to the dogmas propounded by the Church which is different from that which the Church has understood and understands: let him be anathema.” (Pope Pius IX, Vatican Council I, Session 3, On Faith and Reason, 4:3)

And as Pope Gregory XVI taught in Mirari Vos (#7) in 1832:

“… nothing of the things appointed ought to be diminished; nothing changed; nothing added; but they must be preserved both as regards expression and meaning.”

Pope Gregory XVI condemns Antipope Francis

Francis Accepts And Respects Those Who Commit Suicide

Francis, On Heaven and Earth, pp. 92-93: “There was a time when they did not perform funerals for those that committed suicide because they had not continued on towards the goal; they ended the path when they wanted to. But I still respect the one who commits suicide; he is a person who could not overcome the contradictions in his life. I do not reject him.”

Antipope Francis says he does not “reject” and that he will “respect” the faithless one who despairs of God and commits suicide. This is heresy and a direct denial of tradition and the Gospel.

Contrary to Francis, the Catholic Church condemns and rejects those who “holds opposing or contrary views” and “who depart this life in actual mortal sin”.

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, Bull Cantate Domino, 1442, ex cathedra: “… it [the Holy Roman Church] condemns, rejects, anathematizes and declares to be outside the Body of Christ, which is the Church, whoever holds opposing or contrary views.”

Pope Gregory X, Council of Lyons II, 1274: “We define also that… the souls of those who depart this life in actual mortal sin, or in original sin alone, go straightaway to hell, but to undergo punishments of different kinds.” (Denz. 464)

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, “Letentur coeli,” Sess. 6, July 6, 1439, ex cathedra: “We define also that… the souls of those who depart this life in actual mortal sin, or in original sin alone, go straightaway to hell, but to undergo punishments of different kinds.” (Denz. 693)

The Church does not “respect” suicides. Rather, the Church dishonors them by refusing them Christian burial due to the fact that they are not saved.

The Catholic Encyclopedia, Vol. 3, p. 72: “Christian burial is refused to suicides (this prohibition is as old as the fourth century)…”

1 Corinthians 3:16-17: “Know you not, that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? But if any man violate the temple of God, him shall God destroy. For the temple of God is holy, which you are.”

The Bible mentions seven specific people who committed suicide: Abimelech (Judges 9:54), Saul (1 Samuel 31:4), Saul’s armor-bearer (1 Samuel 31:4-6), Ahithophel (2 Samuel 17:23), Zimri (1 Kings 16:18), Razias (2 Maccabees 14:37-46), and Judas (Matthew 27:5). Five of them were wicked, sinful men (although not enough is said regarding Saul’s armor-bearer to make a judgment as to his character). Haydock Bible Commentary however relates, “that to avoid a little shame and temporal punishment, they [both] rushed into those [punishments] which are inconceivably great and eternal [i.e., hell]”).

People will definitely lose their soul by committing suicide. Suicide is the ultimate statement of unbelief. People commit suicide because they don’t have faith that God will help them, and we are saved by faith. “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope” (Jeremiah 29:11). One must persevere and trust God to the end, not end their lives through suicide.

The Bible views suicide as equal to murder, which is what it is—self-murder. God is the only one who is to decide when and how a person should die.

The Catholic Encyclopedia, Vol. 14, "Suicide", 1912: “That suicide is unlawful is the teaching of Holy Scripture and of the Church, which condemns the act as a most atrocious crime and, in hatred of the sin and to arouse the horror of its children, denies the suicide Christian burial [thus affirming that persons eternal damnation]. Moreover, suicide is directly opposed to the most powerful and invincible tendency of every creature and especially of man, the preservation of life. Finally, for a sane man deliberately to take his own life, he must, as a general rule, first have annihilated in himself all that he possessed of spiritual life, since suicide is in absolute contradiction to everything that the Christian religion teaches us as to the end and object of life and, except in cases of insanity, is usually the natural termination of a life of disorder, weakness, and cowardice.”

Francis’ Heretical Teaching on Sin

Francis, Conversations, pp. 120-121: “I often say that the only glory we have, as Saint Paul says, is that of being sinners.”

Saint Paul doesn’t say this. This is outrageous.

Francis then goes on to say on the next page:

“That’s why, for me, sin is not a stain I need to clean.” (Francis, Conversations, p. 122)

Francis – a question of sin

Francis, Conversations, p. 129: “… it is a problem of sin. For four years Argentina has been living a sinful existence because it has not taken responsibility for those who have no food or work.”

Notice that the only sin Francis speaks of is not giving people food or work; he says nothing about sins against God and God’s faith.

Antipope Francis, La Repubblica, October 1, 2013: “The most serious of the evils that afflict the world these days are youth unemployment and the loneliness of the old. … This, to me, is the most urgent problem that the Church is facing.”

Francis on Communism

Francis, Conversations, p. 39: “It’s true that I was, like the rest of my family, a practicing Catholic. But my mind was not made solely for religious questions… I read Our Word and Proposals, a publication by the Communist Party, and I loved every article ever written by Leonidas Barletta, one of their best-known members…”

Francis, On Heaven and Earth, p. 131: “I remember that in high school there was a Communist professor. We had a wonderful relationship with him, he questioned us about everything and it was good for us, but he never lied to us.”

Francis says he loves the writings of Communist Leonidas Barletta, and says that a Communist professor he had “never lied to us” - yet communism is a gigantic lie from the pits of Hell.

Francis on the Death Penalty

Francis, Conversations, p. 101: “… there is now an increasing awareness of the immorality of the death penalty.”

This statement is completely heretical. The Catholic Church and the Bible has always supported the legitimacy of the death penalty for extremely grave crimes. In fact, God Himself sanctioned the death penalty not only in the Old Testament but in the New Testament as well (see Acts 5:1-11).

In the Old Testament law God commanded the death penalty for various acts: murder (Exodus 21:12), kidnapping (Exodus 21:16), bestiality (Exodus 22:19), adultery (Leviticus 20:10), homosexuality (Leviticus 20:13), being a false prophet (Deuteronomy 13:5), prostitution and rape (Deuteronomy 22:24), and several other crimes.

One of the first Popes to take a stand in favor of the death penalty was Innocent I in the year 405. In response to a query from the Bishop of Toulouse, Pope Innocent I based his position on Paul’s Letter to the Romans. He wrote:

“It must be remembered that power was granted by God [to the magistrates], and to avenge crime by the sword was permitted. He who carries out this vengeance is God’s minister (Rm 13:1-4). Why should we condemn a practice that all hold to be permitted by God? We uphold, therefore, what has been observed until now, in order not to alter the discipline and so that we may not appear to act contrary to God’s authority.” (Pope Innocent I, Epist. 6, C. 3. 8, ad Exsuperium, Episcopum Tolosanum, 20 February 405, PL 20,495)

Pope Innocent III (1161-1216) likewise taught:

“The secular power can without mortal sin carry out a sentence of death, provided it proceeds in imposing the penalty not from hatred but with judgment, not carelessly but with due solicitude.” (Pope Innocent III, Denzinger 795; 425)

Pope Pius XII (1876-1958) in more recent times also defended the legitimacy of the death penalty:

“Even in the case of the death penalty the State does not dispose of the individual’s right to life. Rather public authority limits itself to depriving the offender of the good of life in expiation for his guilt, after he, through his crime, deprived himself of his own right to life.” (Pope Pius XII, Address to the First International Congress of Histopathology of the Nervous System, 14 September 1952, XIV, 328)

In the Catechism of the Council of Trent (1566), it says:

“The power of life and death is permitted to certain civil magistrates because theirs is the responsibility under law to punish the guilty and protect the innocent. Far from being guilty of breaking this commandment [Thou shall not kill], such an execution of justice is precisely an act of obedience to it. For the purpose of the law is to protect and foster human life. This purpose is fulfilled when the legitimate authority of the State is exercised by taking the guilty lives of those who have taken innocent lives. In the Psalms we find a vindication of this right: “Morning by morning I will destroy all the wicked in the land, cutting off all evildoers from the city of the Lord” (Ps. 101:8).” (Roman Catechism of the Council of Trent, 1566, Part III, 5, n. 4)

Thus, it is totally heretical and unbiblical to claim that God, the Bible or the Church opposes the death penalty.

Francis Promotes Sex Education

The Catholic Church condemns sex education. Yet in Conversations, p. 111 Antipope Francis boldly states:

The Church is not opposed to sex education. Personally, I believe that it ought to be available throughout children’s upbringing, adapted to different age groups. In truth, the Church always provided sex education, although I acknowledge that it hasn’t always been adequate.” (Francis, Conversations, p. 111)

Pope Pius XI in his encyclical Divini illius magistri specifically condemned sex education. In doing so, he pointed out that it’s not ignorance of such things which lead to sins in this regard, but rather exposure to such enticements.

Pope Pius XI, Divini illius magistri, Dec. 31, 1931: “But much more pernicious are those opinions and teachings regarding the following of nature absolutely as a guide. These enter upon a certain phase of human education which is full of difficulties, namely, that which has to do with moral integrity and chastity. For here and there a great many foolishly and dangerously hold and advance the method of education, WHICH IS DISGUSTINGLY CALLED ‘SEXUAL,’ since they foolishly feel that they can, by merely natural means, after discarding every religious and pious aid, warn youth against sensuality and excess, by initiating and instructing all of them, without distinction of sex, even publicly, in hazardous doctrines; and what is worse, by exposing them prematurely to the occasions, in order that their minds having become accustomed, as they say, may grow hardened to the dangers of puberty.

But in this such persons gravely err, because they do not take into account the inborn weakness of human nature, and that law planted within our members, which, to use the words of the Apostle Paul, ‘fights against the law of my mind’ (Rom. 7:23); and besides, they rashly deny what we have learned from daily experience, that young people certainly more than others fall into disgraceful acts, not so much because of an imperfect knowledge of the intellect as because of a will exposed to enticements and unsupported by divine assistance.”

In blatant disregard of this teaching, sex education programs, including graphic ones, are implemented in most if not all Vatican II “Catholic schools” over whom Antipope Francis now presides as their head, thus corrupting the innocence of Catholic children from their earliest years. In fact, it would be a gross understatement to merely call these programs “sex education.” They are more correctly labeled “sex initiation” or indoctrination in filth.

One mother, whose child was receiving this kind of most filthy “sex education” in the “Catholic” school, expressed her outrage to the so-called bishop; but to no avail:

A concerned mother’s Phone conversations with Chancery: “[After giving extremely graphic details too filthy even to mention, she says:] The last two months have been a nightmare. I believed in the beginning it would be easy to stop the filthy material from being taught in schools. I was confident that if any decent person would just look at the material, they would be repulsed and stop it immediately. I was naive to think the Archbishop or his "department heads" cared anything for souls. Instead, what I found was a Chancery full of people with deadened consciences and deformed judgments----- "white washed sepulchers with dead men’s bones." Every parent in this diocese should be alarmed that such people have been put in charge of caring for and teaching innocent and vulnerable children. It is scandalous!”

Vatican II’s declaration on “Christian Education” is without a doubt the justification for the sex ed programs in modern day “Catholic” schools.

Antipope Paul VI, Gravissimum Educationis (# 1), Oct. 28, 1965: “… children and adolescents must be helped to develop their physical, moral and intellectual gifts harmoniously… As they grow older, they should receive sex education of a positive and prudent kind.”

Antipope Francis promotes the corruption of youth and the innocence of children by supporting sex education

Matthew 18:6: “But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea.”

Pope Leo XIII, Exeunte iam anno (# 10), Dec. 25, 1888: “Now the whole essence of a Christian life is to reject the corruption of the world and to oppose constantly any indulgence in it…”

Francis Encourages Priests To Leave The Priesthood If They Fall In Love

Francis, Conversations, pp. 118-119: “There are times when a priest does fall in love and must reassess his vocation and his life. Then he must go to the bishop and tell him, ‘I’ve made up my mind… I didn’t know I was going to feel something so beautiful… I truly love this woman’, and he asks to leave the priesthood. And what do you do in these cases? [Francis:] I stay with him; I accompany him on his spiritual journey. If he is sure of his decision, I even help him find work… We request what is called ‘dispensation,’ permission from Rome, and then he would be allowed to receive the sacrament of marriage.”

So Francis will help a man who has taken a permanent vow of chastity before God to break his vow and leave the priesthood. What an outrageous blasphemy against God! The Catholic Church has never allowed a priest to leave the priesthood and get married. This is a heretical and unbiblical invention promoted after Vatican II.

Pope Pius IV, Council of Trent, Sess. 23, Can. 4, July 15, 1563: “If any one saith, that, by sacred ordination… he who has once been a priest, can again become a layman; let him be anathema.”

Widows, priests, monks and all those who have vowed perpetual chastity to Our Lord must remain pure and chaste until their death or else they will have “damnation,” according to God’s Holy Word in St. Paul’s First Letter to Timothy.

1 Timothy 5:11-12, 15: “For when they have grown wanton in Christ, they will marry: Having damnation, because they have made void their first faith. … For some are already turned aside after Satan.”

Thus, a vow of perpetual chastity before God cannot ever be abrogated or dispensed since it is of Divine Faith that people who have vowed their chastity to God and spiritually married Christ must remain chaste and faithful to Him until their death, or else they will have damnation. As Haydock Commentary correctly explains 1 Timothy 5:11-12, 15:

Ver. 11.for when they have grown wanton in Christ, which may signify in the Church of Christ, or as others translate, against Christ; when they have been nourished in plenty, indulging their appetite in eating and drinking, in company and conversation, in private familiarities, and even sometimes in sacrilegious fornications against Christ and their vows, they are for marrying again. See St. Jerome. (Witham)”

Ver. 12. Having, or incurring and making themselves liable to damnation, by a breach of their first faith, their vow or promise, (Witham) by which they had engaged themselves to Christ. (Challoner)”

Ver. 15. For some are already turned aside after Satan, by breaking the vows they had made. "Yet it does not follow, (says St. Augustine in the same place [de Bono viduitatis, chap. viii.]) that they who abstain not from such sins may marry after their vows. They might indeed marry before they vowed; but this being done, unless they keep them they justly incur damnation." "Why is it, (says he again, on Psalm lxxv.) they made void their first faith? but that they made vows, and kept them not. But let not this (says he) make you abstain from such vows [of virginity or chastity], for you are not to comply with them by your own strength; you will fall, if you presume on yourselves; but if you confide in him to whom you made these vows, you will securely comply with them." How different was the doctrine and practice of the first and chief of the late pretended reformers, who were many of them apostates after such vows? (Witham)”

Those blessed men and women who enter into a Heavenly Marriage with our Bridegroom, Our Lord Jesus Christ, commit literal adultery if they at some point in time should change their mind and “marry” another person or have sexual relations with anyone. In former times adultery was heavily punished, and even today, most people recognize that adultery is an especially evil deed. But if committing adultery against a human and mortal person is so shameful and evil, how much more evil must it not to be to reject, defile and be unfaithful to one’s eternal marriage to Our Lord Jesus Christ – Our Heavenly Spouse – and commit adultery with a mortal man or woman like a filthy adulterer? That’s why all those who have vowed their chastity to Christ and then breaks it, are damned.

Since Antipope Francis encourages priests to break their promise or vow of eternal chastity before God and even says that he would help them to get “married”, this means that he encourages and approves of them in their damnation and in their spiritual adultery against God. This is outrageous apostasy!

The Revelations of St. Bridget, Book 7, Chapter 10: “[The mother of God says to the Bride, St. Bridget:] God himself, through the infusion of his Holy Spirit, put into the heart of the pope then guiding the Church another law more acceptable [than that in the Old Law] and [more] pleasing to him in this matter: namely, by pouring this infusion into the heart of the pope so that he established a statute in the universal Church that Christian priests, who have so holy and so worthy an office, namely, of consecrating this precious Sacrament [of Christ true Body and Blood], should by no means live in the easily contaminated, carnal delight of marriage.

Know this too: that if some pope concedes to priests a license to contract carnal marriage, God will condemn him to a sentence as great, in a spiritual way, as that which the law justly inflicts in a corporeal way on a man who has transgressed so gravely that he must have his eyes gouged out, his tongue and lips, nose and ears cut off, his hands and feet amputated, all his body’s blood spilled out to grow completely cold, and finally, his whole bloodless corpse cast out to be devoured by dogs and other wild beasts. Similar things would truly happen in a spiritual way to that pope who were to go against the aforementioned preordinance and will of God and concede to priests such a license to contract marriage.

For that same pope would be totally deprived by God of his spiritual sight and hearing, and of his spiritual words and deeds. All his spiritual wisdom would grow completely cold; and finally, after his death, his soul would be cast out to be tortured eternally in hell so that there it might become the food of demons everlastingly and without end. Yes, even if Saint Gregory the Pope had made this statute, in the aforesaid sentence he would never have obtained mercy from God if he had not humbly revoked his statute before his death.”

Francis’ Teaching on Man

Francis, Conversations, p. 220: “For me, hope is in the human person… I believe in man. I’m not saying man is good or bad, just that I believe in man.”

Since Antipope Francis rejects God and His laws and even encourages people such as priests to abandon Him and His perpetual service, and even approves of them to commit spiritual adultery against Him, it can indeed truly be said that Francis “believe in man” and not God.

“I believe in man”

Francis’ Heretical Teaching on Heretics and Schismatics

Francis on Heretics and schismatics

Heretics and schismatics, such as Protestants and the Eastern Orthodox, are outside the Catholic Church and must be converted to the Catholic Faith for unity and salvation. It’s necessary for them to accept all the Catholic dogmas and councils, including the dogmatic definitions at Vatican I in 1870. This is infallible Catholic teaching.

Pope Pius IX, Vatican Council I, ex cathedra: “… all the faithful of Christ must believe that the Apostolic See and the Roman Pontiff hold primacy over the whole world… This is the doctrine of Catholic truth from which no one can deviate and keep his faith and salvation.”

The Church itself was founded by Our Lord upon the Papal Primacy, as the Gospel declares (Matthew 16:18-20) and as Catholic dogma defines:

Pope Boniface VIII, Unam Sanctam, Nov. 18, 1302, ex cathedra: “…we declare, we proclaim, we define that it is absolutely necessary for salvation that every human creature be subject to the Roman Pontiff..”

The Catholic Church teaches that those baptized persons who embrace heretical or schismatic sects will lose their souls. Jesus founded His Church upon St. Peter and declared that whoever does not hear the Church be considered as the heathen and publican (Matthew 18:17). He also commanded His followers to observe “all things whatsoever” He has commanded (Matthew 28:20). The Eastern schismatic sects (such as the “Orthodox”) and the Protestant sects are breakoff movements that have separated from the Catholic Church. By separating themselves from the one Church of Christ, they leave the path of salvation and enter the path of perdition.

Pope Pius XII, Mystici Corporis Christi (# 23), June 29, 1943: “For not every sin, however grave it may be, is such as of its own nature to sever a man from the Body of the Church, as does schism or heresy or apostasy.”

These sects obstinately and pertinaciously reject one or more of the truths that Christ clearly instituted, such as the Papacy (which is rejected by Eastern “Orthodoxy” as well as the Protestants but proved in Matthew 16; John 21; etc.), Confession (John 20:23), the Eucharist (John 6:54), and other dogmas of the Catholic Faith. In order to be saved one must assent to all the things which the Catholic Church, based on Scripture and Tradition, has infallibly defined as dogmas of the Faith.

Pope Innocent III, Eius exemplo, 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 of which we believe that no one is saved.”

Pope Pius IX, Vatican Council I, 1870, Sess. 4, Chap. 3, ex cathedra: “… all the faithful of Christ must believe that the Apostolic See and the Roman Pontiff hold primacy over the whole world, and the Pontiff of Rome himself is the successor of the blessed Peter, the chief of the apostles, and is the true vicar of Christ and head of the whole Church... Furthermore We teach and declare that the Roman Church, by the disposition of the Lord, holds the sovereignty of ordinary power over all others… This is the doctrine of Catholic truth from which no one can deviate and keep his faith and salvation.”

However In On Heaven and Earth, p. 72 Francis quotes what his grandmother told him when he was younger about the heretical Protestants, “… ‘they are Protestants, but they are good.’ That was the wisdom of the true religion.”

Protestant are not “good,” but are evil. They are heretics and on their way to Hell for obstinately rejecting Jesus Christ and the true faith He established. They are not priests, nor pastors, nor spiritual guides nor someone one should lead people to for “spiritual healing”.

Protestantism is the rejection of many dogmas of the Catholic Faith. Protestantism is not only heresy, but the most notorious collection of heresies with which the Church ever had to contend.

Pope Pius XI, Rerum omnium perturbationem (# 4), Jan. 26, 1923: “… the heresies begotten by the [Protestant] Reformation. It is in these heresies that we discover the beginnings of that apostasy of mankind from the Church, the sad and disastrous effects of which are deplored, even to the present hour, by every fair mind.”

Pope Gregory XVI, Encyclical, May 8, 1844: “But later even more care was required when the Lutherans and Calvinists dared to oppose the changeless doctrine of the faith with an almost incredible variety of errors. They left no means untried to deceive the faithful with perverse explanations of the sacred books...”

Now if any person that is a member of a protestant or schismatical sect is truly of good will and does not resist God’s grace calling him to conversion, this person will of course be converted and brought back to the Catholic faith for unity and salvation.

St. Thomas Aquinas, De Veritate, 14, A. 11, ad 1: “It is the characteristic of Divine Providence to provide every man with what is necessary for salvation… provided on his part there is no hindrance. In the case of a man who seeks good and shuns evil, by the leading of natural reason, God would either reveal to him through internal inspiration what had to be believed [to be saved], or would send some preacher of the faith to him…”

When Antipope Francis was “Archbishop” in Argentina, “Cardinal” Bergoglio would frequently recommend “Catholics” seeking an exorcism to a Lutheran exorcist. He is also reported to have been very interested in the spiritual practices and activities of this heretic.

Diario Popular (Argentina), March 18, 2013: “The Story of Pope Francis’ Favorite Exorcist – Manuel Acuña, a Lutheran priest, specializes in spiritual healing and is a personal friend of the Holy Father, who used to refer him each time there were signs of diabolic possession in a person. … This was neither the first time something like this happened nor the last, in the long history of exorcisms performed by today’s proud demon-expelling right-hand man of the head of the Vatican. "He and I are very good friends, the Holy Father is an extraordinary person. We know each other very well and he has a great deal of respect for spiritual healing. Due to his honest interest in anything related to healing, every time we were on the phone, he made time to ask me about this topic and to check on how my activity was being carried on. He is very knowledgeable." However, Acuna became somewhat enigmatic when asked about diabolic possession cases that came directly from Bergoglio’s office. "To speak about that would be really compromising for today’s pope. I love and admire him too much to jeopardize him in the least", the priest said.”

Jorge Bergoglio and his favorite “exorcist” Manuel Acuña

Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum (# 13), June 29, 1896: “Therefore if a man does not want to be, or to be called, a heretic, let him not strive to please this or that man… but let him hasten before all things to be in communion with the Roman See.”

In 2006, Francis made headlines for his meetings with protestants in the Luna Park arena, Buenos Aires, where, together with preacher of the Vatican II “Pontifical House”, Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa, he kneeled and was “blessed” by Protestant “ministers”, in a common act of ecumenical worship in which he, in practice, accepted the validity of the “powers” of the TV-pastors.

Francis, then “Archbishop” of Buenos Aires, kneels down to receive the “blessing” of Protestant “ministers” and “Fr.” Raniero Cantalamessa - Buenos Aires, 2006

Francis did the same thing immediately after being elected antipope on 3/13/13. Francis (instead of “blessing” the people) asked the people to “bless” him (this included numerous members of various non-Catholic religions). L’ Osservatore Romano, March 20, 2013, p. 1.

Francis asking the people to “bless” him

Manuel Acuña, Francis favorite “exorcist”, said the following interesting and prophetic words concerning Francis election and subsequent actions:

“His election was very emotional for me. He did not expect it, but God chose him among his children. It was beautiful when he asked the people to pray for him. Everyone did it and do it. We believe he will unfold an extraordinary papacy, opening the gates of the church to those most in need, to the excluded and the marginalized. It is an honor to share this time with him, and even more as Argentinians. There is a lot to do," Father Acuna added with a lot of emotion.” Diario Popular, Argentina, March 18, 2013

Yes, Antipope Francis was indeed chosen, but not by God, but by Satan among his children; and we can indeed see quite clearly the extraordinary unfoldment of his antipapacy so far by his total apostasy from God; and his church indeed has flung open the gates of Hell far and wide for everyone to enter, whether they be atheists, Jews, Protestants, Schismatics, homosexuals, etc. All can be saved and none can be judged in this church. Yes one doesn’t even have to believe in God to be saved, says Antipope Francis.

On March 18, 2013, Francis wrote to the new leader of the Anglican sect. He called the layman Justin Welby “reverend,” even though the Catholic Church under Pope Leo XIII infallibly declared that the Anglican rite of ordination is totally invalid.

Both Francis and Welby are mere laymen

Pope Leo XIII, Apostolicae Curae, Sept. 13, 1896: “… of Our own motion and certain knowledge We pronounce and declare that Ordinations carried out according to the Anglican rite have been and are absolutely null and utterly void.”

In making this solemn (infallible) pronouncement, it must be understood that Pope Leo XIII was not making Anglican Ordinations invalid, but rather he was declaring that they were always invalid due to defects in the rite (for the exact same reasons, also see Why The New Vatican II Mass & New Vatican II Rite Of Ordination Are Invalid).

Francis said Welby has a “pastoral ministry” and he called him “Archbishop” of Canterbury which means he believes that the leader of the heretical and schismatic Anglican sect is the true jurisdictional leader of the one true Church for Canterbury, England, and that he has a spiritual ministry to perform there. This is heresy. Welby is not a bishop, nor a pastor nor a spiritual guide. He also asked the heretical and schismatic leader to pray for him. L’ Osservatore Romano, March 27, 2013, p. 6.

In his June 14, 2013 address to the schismatic Welby, Francis welcomes him “not as a guest or a stranger, but as a fellow citizen of the Saints, and the Family of God.” Francis thus emphatically teaches that the non-Catholic Welby, whom Francis calls “Your Grace”, is a member of the Church of Christ. This is outrageous heresy. Francis then says he is “deeply grateful” that the heretical and schismatic layman prayed for him. Francis goes on to say that he has profound respect for Anglicans and that there is now a better appreciation for Anglican spiritual and so-called liturgical traditions.

As it is taught in Vatican II, Francis holds that Protestants and the “Orthodox” are in the Church of Christ, and that they don’t need to be converted to the Catholic faith for salvation. That is heresy.

Pope Pelagius II, epistle (2) Dilectionis vestrae, 585: “Does he who does not hold this unity of the Church believe that he has the faith? Does he who deserts and resists the chair of Peter, on which the Church was founded, have confidence that he is in the Church?”

Francis and the schismatic “Orthodox Pope”

Francis, May 10, 2013 Greeting to schismatic “Orthodox Pope” of Alexandria, Egypt: “Your Holiness, in sincerely assuring you of my prayers that the whole flock entrusted to your pastoral care may be ever faithful to the Lord’s call, I invoke the protection of both St. Peter and St. Mark.” L’ Osservatore Romano, May 15, 2013, p. 3.

Francis calls the schismatic “Holiness”, thus calling schism “holy”, and says God entrusts his flock to a schismatic. He also calls him a pastor which means he believes the schismatic leader is a true jurisdictional leader and true spiritual guide of the one true Church of Christ.

The Eastern Schismatics (the so-called “Orthodox”, whose leader Francis calls “holiness”) reject the dogma of the Papacy, which means that they reject the supreme authority of all the true popes in history. They reject the dogma of Papal Infallibility: the truth that a pope teaches infallibly when speaking from the Chair of Peter. They reject the dogma of the Immaculate Conception, they refuse to accept the last 13 Councils of the Roman Catholic Church, they deny that the Holy Ghost proceeds from the Second person of the Trinity (the Son), and they allow divorce and re-marriage.

Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum (# 15): “From this it must be clearly understood that Bishops are deprived of the right and power of ruling, if they deliberately secede from Peter and his successors; because, by this secession, they are separated from the foundation on which the whole edifice must rest. They are therefore outside the edifice itself…”

In his June 28, 2013 discourse to a delegation of the schismatic Eastern “Orthodox” Church of Constantinople, Francis begs them to pray for him, saying: “I ask you, finally, to pray for me – I need your prayers…” L’ Osservatore Romano, July 3, 2013, p. 5. And on June 19, 2013 in a General Audience, Francis said: “… today, before leaving home, I spent 40 minutes, more or less, half an hour, with an evangelical pastor and we prayed together…” L’ Osservatore Romano, June 26, 2013, p. 11.

Pope St. Leo the Great, Sermon 129: “Wherefore, since outside the Catholic Church there is nothing perfect, nothing undefiled, the Apostle declaring that "all that is not of faith is sin" (Romans 14:23), 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.”

In On Heaven and Earth, pp. 217-218, Francis recommends that different denominations “walk together in a reconciled diversity… by doing things together, by praying together… without nullifying the diverse traditions”.

Here Francis promotes the heresy that we should not convert non-Catholics but walk and pray together with them without nullifying their diverse heretical and schismatic traditions.

Here are the words of a real Catholic pope, Pope Benedict XIV, on the exact same topic.

Pope Benedict XIV, Allatae Sunt (# 19), July 26, 1755: “First, the missionary who is attempting with God’s help to bring back Greek and eastern schismatics to unity should devote all his effort to the single objective of delivering them from doctrines at variance with the Catholic faith.”

Pope Benedict XIV, Allatae Sunt (# 19): “For the only work entrusted to the missionary is that of recalling the Oriental to the Catholic faith…”

One can easily see the difference between the two religions: the Catholic religion teaches that all of its teachings must be accepted and that non-Catholics need to be converted. The non-Catholic religion of Antipope Francis (the Vatican II religion) teaches that the Catholic faith is meaningless and that non-Catholics should not be converted.

Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos (# 10), Jan. 6, 1928: “… for 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…”

Mortalium Animos

In Lumen Gentium 15, Vatican II teaches heresy on the issue of those who are united with the Church. If one were to sum up the characteristics of the unity of the Catholic Church, it would be that the Church is united with those baptized persons who accept the Catholic Faith in its entirety and remain under the unifying factor of the Papacy. To put it another way: those people with whom the Catholic Church is surely not united are those who don’t accept the Catholic Faith in its entirety or the Papacy. But Vatican II lists those two criteria for unity and teaches just the opposite!

Vatican II document, Lumen Gentium # 15: “For several reasons the Church recognizes that it is joined to those who, though baptized and so honoured with the Christian name, do not profess the faith in its entirety or do not preserve communion under the successor of St. Peter.”

Vatican II says that the Church is united with those who don’t accept the Faith and the Papacy. This is totally heretical. It’s the opposite of the teaching of the Church. As we see below, it’s a dogma that those who reject the Papacy, or any portion of the Faith, are not joined to the Catholic Church.

Pope Pius IX, Amantissimus (# 3), April 8, 1862: “There are other, almost countless, proofs drawn from the most trustworthy witnesses which clearly and openly testify with great faith, exactitude, respect and obedience that all who want to belong to the true and only Church of Christ must honor and obey this Apostolic See and the Roman Pontiff.”

Pope Pius VI, Charitas (# 32), April 13, 1791: “Finally, in one word, stay close to Us. For no one can be in the Church of Christ without being in unity with its visible head and founded on the See of Peter.”

Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum (# 9), June 29, 1896: “The practice of the Church has always been the same, as is shown by the unanimous teaching of the Fathers, WHO WERE WONT TO HOLD AS OUTSIDE CATHOLIC COMMUNION, AND ALIEN TO THE CHURCH, WHOEVER WOULD RECEDE IN THE LEAST DEGREE FROM ANY POINT OF DOCTRINE PROPOSED BY HER AUTHORITATIVE MAGISTERIUM.”

However, Benedict XVI teaches that Protestants and Eastern Schismatics don’t need to be converted, and don’t need to accept Vatican Council I. He says that non-Catholics are not required to accept the Papal Primacy:

Benedict XVI, Principles of Catholic Theology (1982), p. 198: “Nor is it possible, on the other hand, for him to regard as the only possible form and, consequently, as binding on all Christians the form this primacy [the papacy] has taken in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The symbolic gestures of Pope Paul VI and, in particular, his kneeling before the representative of the Ecumenical Patriarch [the schismatic Patriarch Athenagoras] were an attempt to express precisely this…”

Benedict XVI is referring to the Papal Primacy here, and he says that all Christians are not bound to believe in the Papal Primacy as defined by Vatican I in 1870! This means that Benedict XVI claims to be a Catholic and the pope while he holds that heretics and schismatics are not bound to believe in the Papacy! This is one of the greatest frauds in human history. Further, notice that Benedict XVI even admits that Paul VI’s ecumenical gestures with the schismatics were meant to show precisely that the schismatics don’t have to accept the Papal Primacy. This is a blatant denial of Vatican Council I.

In his outrageous Directory for the Application of the Principles and Norms of Ecumenism (#125), Antipope John Paul encourages interfaith worship with these Eastern Schismatics and states that: “… any suggestion of proselytism should be avoided.”

To proselytize is to try to convert someone. So Antipope John Paul II is stating that any effort to try to convert the Eastern Schismatics should be avoided.

In 1993, the Vatican signed the Balamand Statement with the Eastern Schismatics, the so-called Orthodox Church. In this Balamand Statement, which was approved by Antipope John Paul II, any attempt to convert the Eastern Schismatics is rejected as “the outdated ecclesiology of return to the Catholic Church.” (Balamand Statement, June 24, 1993, nn. 13 and 30.) Notice how this statement word for word denies the Catholic dogma that non-Catholics must return to the Catholic Church for salvation and Christian unity.

So it is a fact that Antipope John Paul II and his false Church reject word-for-word the dogma of the Catholic faith: that Christian unity is only achieved by conversion to Catholicism, as we see again in the next quote.

Antipope John Paul II, Homily, Jan. 25, 1993: “The way to achieve Christian unity, in fact,’ says the document of the Pontifical Commission for Russia, ‘is not proselytism but fraternal dialogue...”

Walter Kasper, a high-ranking member of the Vatican II Church, understands this quite well. Kasper was made a “cardinal” and the head of the Vatican’s Council for Promoting Christian Unity by John Paul II. Benedict XVI confirmed Kasper in his position as head of the Vatican’s Council for Promoting Christian Unity. Expressing the view of both John Paul II and Benedict XVI, Kasper stated:

“… today we no longer understand ecumenism in the sense of a return, by which the others would ‘be converted’ and return to being ‘Catholics’. This was expressly abandoned by Vatican II.”

Pope Leo XIII declared in the encyclical “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.”

In its Decree on Ecumenism, Vatican II also teaches that Eastern heretics and schismatics help the Church to grow.

Vatican II document, Unitatis redintegratio (#’s 13-15): “We now turn our attention to the two chief types of division as they affect the seamless robe of Christ. The first division occurred in the east, when the dogmatic formulas of the councils of Ephesus and Chalcedon were challenged, and later when ecclesiastical communion between the eastern patriarchates and the Roman See was dissolved… Everyone knows with what great love the Christians of the east celebrate the sacred liturgy… Hence, through the celebration of the Holy Eucharist in each of these Churches, the Church of God is built up and grows, and through concelebration their communion with one another is made manifest.”

The Catholic Church teaches that heretics are the gates of Hell.

Pope Vigilius, Second Council of Constantinople, 553: “These matters having been treated with thorough-going exactness, we bear in mind what was promised about the holy Church and Him who said the gates of hell will not prevail against it (by these we understand the death-dealing tongues of heretics)… and so we count along with the devil, the father of lies, the uncontrolled tongues of heretics and their heretical writings, together with the heretics themselves who have persisted in their heresy even to death.”

Pope St. Leo IX, In terra pax hominibus, Sept. 2, 1053, to the “Father” of the Eastern Orthodox, Michael Cerularius, Chap. 7: “The holy Church built upon a rock, that is Christ, and upon Peter or Cephas, the son of John who first was called Simon, because by the gates of Hell, that is, by the disputations of heretics which lead the vain to destruction, it would never be overcome.”

On p. 9 of the Thinking Faith interview with Antonio Spadaro, Francis is asked about his ecumenism and the schismatic “Orthodox” who don’t accept Papal Infallibility and the Papal Primacy of Jurisdiction. He says:

“Maybe it is time to change the method of the Synod of Bishops, because it seems to me that the current method is not dynamic. This will also have ecumenical value, especially with our Orthodox brethren. From them we can learn more about the meaning of episcopal collegiality and the tradition of synodality.”

He goes on to say that it is important to “recognize what the Spirit has sown in the other as a gift for us.” Thinking Faith, Sept. 19, 2013, p. 9.

Before I continue, note he’s saying that the Holy Spirit sows things in schismatics who reject Catholic dogma. To reject Catholic dogma is to reject Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, the Faith, etc. He’s saying we should learn from them how to work on the local level, how to use synods etc.

Pope St. Celestine I, Council of Ephesus, 431: “… ALL HERETICS corrupt the true expressions of the Holy Spirit with their own evil minds and they draw down on their own heads an inextinguishable flame.”

He goes on to say:

“I want to continue the discussions that was begun in 2007 by the joint [Catholic-Orthodox] commission on how to exercise the Petrine Primacy, which led to the signing of the Ravenna Document.” Thinking Faith, Sept. 19, 2013, p. 9.

Antipope Benedict with schismatic Orthodox

In 2007, a commission under Benedict XVI officially approved the Ravenna Document. The Ravenna Document was a joint statement by the Vatican II sect and the schismatic Orthodox. This statement officially approved the “Orthodox” view of the Church, how they work locally; it clearly teaches that they’re in the Church, since they have the Eucharist, etc. That’s a heresy that’s also taught in Vatican II.

It praises autocephalous Churches, that is schismatic independent churches, which reject the Papacy and appoints its own head, not subject to the authority of an external patriarch or archbishop. It says that they are an expression of the Spirit of the Church, and it denies the necessity for the schismatics to embrace Catholic teaching on the Papacy in various ways. It’s complete heresy and schism. Francis says that’s the way to go... That heresy and schism is the way!

But that’s not even the worst thing he says about schismatic Orthodox in this passage, or the most theologically significant thing.

Antipope Benedict XVI approved Ravenna Document with schismatic “Orthodox”

The most important thing he says comes next. He is then asked how he envisions the future unity of the Church in the light of these comments. He answers, “We must walk united with our differences: there is no other way to become one. This is the way of Jesus.” Thinking Faith, Sept. 19, 2013, p. 10.

That’s an open blatant statement that the schismatic Orthodox do not need to be, and shall not be converted to the Catholic Faith. He says that there is no other way to achieve unity; no other way to become one, to walk united with our differences, that is with their rejection of the Papacy.

That is total heresy! It’s a denial of many Catholic dogmas, the necessity of the Catholic Faith for salvation, the necessity of the schismatics to convert, and it’s exactly opposite of what Pope Pius XI taught in Mortalium Animos in 1928. He said:

“… for 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...”

Notice that Francis not only blatantly denies that teaching, proving that he’s a heretic, but, Pius XI says that the only way to promote Christian unity is by telling them to convert, whereas Francis says that the only way to promote unity is to walk united in differences. So he’s not only denying the Catholic teaching, he is saying that his view, his heretical view, is the only way that must be followed. It’s just total heresy and blasphemy!

Antipope Francis with schismatic Orthodox

This heresy on the Orthodox which was also taught by the previous Vatican II antipopes in various ways, carries great theological significance because it denies dogmatic truths at the heart of Vatican Council I.

Vatican I made it quite clear in various statements that no one can remain in the Church of Christ without accepting Catholic teaching on Papal Infallibility and Papal Primacy of Jurisdiction.

Pope Pius IX, Amantissimus (# 3), April 8, 1862: “There are other, almost countless, proofs drawn from the most trustworthy witnesses which clearly and openly testify with great faith, exactitude, respect and obedience that all who want to belong to the true and only Church of Christ must honor and obey this Apostolic See and the Roman Pontiff.”

Vatican I declares Francis – No Pope!

Francis teaches the opposite. He rejects, spits upon and trashes Vatican I. If you adhere to the teaching of Vatican I, you must reject Francis. His denial of Vatican I is a prime reason among others that he’s not the Pope!

Francis’ Heresies on Christian Education

On the occasion of World Youth Day, Rio 2013, journalist Gerson Camarotti of Globo News, 29/07/2013, interviewed Francis. Near the end of the interview (27:17 min mark), Francis came with a tremendous declaration:

“If a child is hungry and has no education, what should interest us is to stop him being hungry and him to have education. If the education is given by Catholics, by Protestants, by Orthodox or by Jews, I do not care.”

Francis in his total religious and spiritual indifferentism and total concern for materialism and corporeal matters, says he doesn’t care how a child is educated. Well if you are educated in false doctrine, in doctrine of perdition, which the Jews teach who reject Christ completely and who in the Talmud teach murder, stealing, sexual immorality etc., what good is the education? what good does that education do for you? and what good is being filled with food and being given an education from apostates, pagans or from heretics? It does one no good.

Pope Gregory XVI, Mirari Vos (# 13), Aug. 15, 1832: “Now We consider another abundant source of the evils with which the Church is afflicted at present: indifferentism.”

Pope St. Pius X wrote specifically about education. He said the following:

Pope St. Pius X, Acerbo nimis (# 2), April 15, 1905: “Our Predecessor, Benedict XIV, had just cause to write: ‘We declare that a great number of those who are condemned to eternal punishment suffer that everlasting calamity because of ignorance of those mysteries of faith which must be known and believed in order to be numbered among the elect.’”

Pope St. Pius X, Acerbo nimis (# 6), April 15, 1905: “How many and how grave are the consequences of ignorance in matters of religion! And on the other hand, how necessary and how beneficial is religious instruction! It is indeed vain to expect a fulfillment of the duties of a Christian by one who does not even know them.”

We can see that Pope St. Pius X is very clear and that he is condemning Francis’ words. Pope St. Pius X is seeking to truly feed his flock by giving them the truth to save their souls, whereas Francis says he doesn’t care.

The Catholic Church infallibly teaches that it is absolutely necessary for everyone above reason to positively know about the most holy mysteries of our great religion in order to be saved. These mysteries are the Trinity and the Incarnation. Those who speak about invincible ignorance and that ignorance about the Catholic faith can somehow save a person are thoroughly mistaken and refuted by these words below. They are also refuted by Our Lord’s words in the Gospel.

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, Sess. 8, Nov. 22, 1439, ex cathedra: “Whoever wishes to be saved, needs above all to hold the Catholic faith; unless each one preserves this whole and inviolate, he will without a doubt perish in eternity.– But the Catholic faith is this, that we worship one God in the Trinity, and the Trinity in unity; neither confounding the persons, nor dividing the substance; for there is one person of the Father, another of the Son, another of the Holy Spirit, their glory is equal, their majesty coeternal...and in this Trinity there is nothing first or later, nothing greater or less, but all three persons are coeternal and coequal with one another, so that in every respect, as has already been said above, both unity in Trinity, and Trinity in unity must be worshipped. Therefore let him who wishes to be saved, think thus concerning the Trinity.

But it is necessary for eternal salvation that he faithfully believe also in the incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ... the Son of God is God and man... This is the Catholic faith; unless each one believes this faithfully and firmly, he cannot be saved.”

This is why every Doctor of the Church held that no adult could be saved without knowledge of the Trinity and the Incarnation.

In On Heaven and Earth, p. 128 Antipope Francis shared a dialogue with his friend, Rabbi Skorka, on religious education:

“Skorka: ‘[Children] should be exposed to the full spectrum of ideas and not just one point of view. Of course I share that belief, which is why I am against having religious instruction in public schools as they have had in the past.’ Bergolio: ‘I also do not agree with religion classes that entail discrimination against non-Catholics…’”

Francis said to the Jewish Rabbi Skorka that he “does not agree with religious discrimination against non-Catholics in religion classes.” He said this in response to Skorka’s statement that “I am against having religious instruction in public schools as they have had in the past.” In the past (at least in Catholic countries) the only allowed religious instruction was Catholic, and all false religious practices was banned and discriminated against from public places. Did Antipope Francis have a problem with this? If Francis response to Rabbi Skorka would be followed in practice, it would be impossible to teach children soul saving truths in “religion classes” if no discrimination against a false religion is allowed. Remember, Francis was against “discrimination against non-Catholics”.

As a Catholic, one must of course always discriminate against a false religion and their practitioners whether in religion classes or outside it in order to instruct them in the true religion and save their souls; and it definitively includes telling them basic Catholic truths such as that they, and their religions, are of the devil and that they are servants of the devil and that they will be damned to Hell for all eternity and separated from God unless they repent and convert before their deaths.

Psalms 95:5: “For all the gods of the Gentiles are devils…”

1 Corinthians 10:20: “But the things which the heathens sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God. And I would not that you should be made partakers with devils.”

Pope Leo XII, Ubi Primum (# 14), May 5, 1824: “It is impossible for the most true God, who is Truth itself, the best, the wisest Provider, and the Rewarder of good men, to approve all sects who profess false teachings which are often inconsistent with one another and contradictory, and to confer eternal rewards on their members… by divine faith we hold one Lord, one faith, one baptism… This is why we profess that there is no salvation outside the Church.”

Vatican II also teaches that all people have an inalienable right to education according to their own religious principles and traditions, no matter what they may be.

Antipope Paul VI, Gravissimum Educationis (# 1), Oct. 28, 1965: “All people of whatever race, condition and age, since they are endowed with the dignity of persons, have an inalienable right to education corresponding to their proper destiny, suited to their particular talents, sex, culture and inherited traditions...”

Antipope Paul VI, Gravissimum Educationis (# 7), Oct. 28, 1965: “… so that education can be imparted to their children in all schools according to the families’ own moral and religious principles.”

This means that a person has the right to be educated in satanism if that is his or her moral and religious principle. Obviously such an idea is contrary to the teaching of the Catholic Church.

Pope Leo XII, Ubi Primum (# 12), May 5, 1824: “Under the gentle appearance of piety and liberality this sect professes what they call tolerance or indifferentism. It preaches that not only in civil affairs, which is not Our concern here, but also in religion, God has given every individual a wide freedom to embrace and adopt without danger to his salvation whatever sect or opinion appeals to him on the basis of his private judgment.”

Thus it is totally obvious that Vatican II’s teaching on religious education is not shared by the Catholic Church. The Church desires the instruction and eternal happiness of all the infidels, pagans and heretics. She doesn’t pretend that they have an “inalienable right to education corresponding to their… own moral and [false] religious principles.” She knows that they belong to a false religion and that they need to be instructed in the Catholic religion in order to be saved.

Pope St. Pius X, Acerbo nimis, April 15, 1905: “7. We must now consider upon whom rests the obligation to dissipate this most pernicious ignorance and to impart in its stead the knowledge that is wholly indispensable. There can be no doubt, Venerable Brethren, that this most important duty rests upon all who are pastors of souls. On them, by command of Christ, rest the obligations of knowing and of feeding the flocks committed to their care; and to feed implies, first of all, to teach. "I will give you pastors according to my own heart," God promised through Jeremias, "and they shall feed you with knowledge and doctrine." [Jer. 3: 15] Hence the Apostle Paul said: "Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel," [I Cor. 1:17] thereby indicating that the first duty of all those who are entrusted in any way with the government of the Church is to instruct the faithful in the things of God.

“8. We do not think it necessary to set forth here the praises of such instruction or to point out how meritorious it is in God’s sight. If, assuredly, the alms with which we relieve the needs of the poor are highly praised by the Lord, how much more precious in His eyes, then, will be the zeal and labor expended in teaching and admonishing, by which we provide not for the passing needs of the body but for the eternal profit of the soul! Nothing, surely, is more desirable, nothing more acceptable to Jesus Christ, the Savior of souls, Who testifies of Himself through Isaias: "To bring good news to the poor he has sent me." [Luke 4:18]

“9. Here then it is well to emphasize and insist that for a priest there is no duty more grave or obligation more binding than this.”

It should be totally obvious that the Church is about saving souls, about the salvation of eternal souls. It’s not about feeding the poor, giving them heaven here on earth. It’s about giving them heaven for all eternity. Sure we give alms to the poor, we help the poor. But that it not the main mission of the Church, or of the Pope, or of the priesthood. Pope St. Pius X clearly said that it’s “not for the passing needs of the body but for the eternal profit of the soul” and that “there is no duty more grave or obligation more binding than this.”

Francis the Liturgical Revolutionary and Enemy of the Traditional Latin Mass

Antipope Francis is a fierce enemy of the traditional Mass. He is perhaps the biggest enemy of the traditional Mass among the ‘cardinals.’ He is considered a nightmare choice for false traditionalists who love tradition and accept the antipopes. In fact, every ‘priest’ in Buenos Aires who tried to implement the Traditional Mass in his own parish out of their own initiative, without authorization from Jorge Mario Bergoglio, then “Archbishop” of Buenos Aires, was ordered to stop.

Consider that Bergoglio was not the only “Bishop” of the whole of Argentina, but the “Archbishop” of Buenos Aires. Naturally, his powers were limited to the Archdiocese of Buenos Aires, which is territorially very small, limited to the area of the Federal Capital itself – and, even then, not in the churches of the Military Ordinariate, as in all countries. So basically what happened in Bergoglio’s jurisdiction was that the traditional Mass was “non-existent.” How Summorum Pontificum [permission to celebrate the Tridentine Mass] was blocked and trampled on in Buenos Aires: facts, not fantasy and disinformation

The same blogger also stated that, “He [Bergoglio] has persecuted every single priest who made an effort to wear a cassock, preach with firmness, or that was simply interested in Summorum Pontificum [i.e., the Latin Mass].” A Buenos Aires journalist describes the Horror of Bergoglio

Here is a picture of Francis celebrating a modernist Vatican II kiddie “Mass” with female liturgical dancing.

Francis’ kiddy “Mass”

Francis, Thinking Faith, p. 9: “We have to work harder to develop a profound theology of the woman.”

Francis, On Heaven and Earth, p. 102: “In Catholicism, for example, many women lead a liturgy of the word...”

The Catholic Church condemns the idea that females should serve the priest or the altar in the celebration of mass.

Pope Benedict XIV, Allatae Sunt (# 29), July 26, 1755: Pope Gelasius in his ninth letter (chap. 26) to the bishops of Lucania condemned the evil practice which had been introduced of women serving the priest at the celebration of Mass. Since this abuse had spread to the Greeks, Innocent IV strictly forbade it in his letter to the bishop of Tusculum: ‘Women should not dare to serve at the altar; they should be altogether refused this ministry.’ We too have forbidden this practice in the same words in Our oft-repeated constitution Etsi Pastoralis, sect. 6, no. 21.”

In Thinking Faith, p. 9, Francis discusses Vatican II, that wicked false council which taught numerous heresies. He says “Vatican II is absolutely irreversible.” He also says, “It’s fruits are enormous. Just recall the liturgy.”

Evil fruits of Vatican II – Blasphemy and spiritual indifference

Francis thinks that the liturgical fruits of Vatican II are tremendous. Anyone who has any conservatism knows they were evil and horrible and disastrous.

Fruits of Vatican II

For true Catholics, of course, all these facts further vindicates the true position of sedevacantism and makes a complete mockery of the position of false traditionalists (and all others) who have obstinately defended the Counter Church or the antipopes as valid popes and rejected God and the faith in the process. It only makes the job of exposing the Counter Church much easier.

Francis – “It’s fruits [Vatican II] are enormous. Just recall the liturgy.”

For those who don’t know, on April 3, 1969, Paul VI replaced the Traditional Latin Mass in the Vatican II churches with his own creation, the New Mass or Novus Ordo. Since that time, the world has seen the following in the Vatican II churches which celebrate the New Mass or Novus Ordo:

The world has seen Clown Masses, in which the “priest” dresses as a clown in utter mockery of God.

The world has seen a priest dressed as Dracula; in a football jersey accompanied by cheerleaders; a cheese-head…

driving a Volkswagen down the aisle of church as the people sing hosanna. There have been disco Masses…

...gymnastic performances during the New Mass; balloon Masses; Carnival Masses;

nude Masses, at which scantily clad or nude people take part. The world has seen juggling Masses, at which a juggler performs during the New Mass.

The world has seen priests celebrate the New Mass with Dorito Chips;

with Mountain Dew; on a cardboard box; with cookies; with Chinese tea accompanied by ancestor worship; with a basketball as the priest bounces it all over the altar; with a guitar as the priest plays a solo performance. The world has witnessed the New Mass with a priest almost totally nude as he dances around the altar or with other high-wire abominations…

The world has seen New Masses with priests dressed in native pagan costumes;

with a Jewish Menorah placed on the altar;

with a statue of Buddha on the altar; with nuns making offerings to female goddesses; with lectors and gift bearers dressed up as voodoo Satanists. The world has seen the New Mass at which the performer is dressed in a tuxedo and tells jokes. The world has seen rock concerts at the New Mass;

guitar and polka New Masses;

a puppet New Mass; a New Mass where the people gather round the altar dressed as devils;

a New Mass where people perform lewd dances to the beat of a steel drum band. The world has seen a New Mass where nuns dressed as pagan vestal virgins make pagan offerings.

The world has also seen New Masses incorporating every false religion. There have been Buddhist New masses;

Hindu and Muslim New Masses;

New Masses where Jews and Unitarians offer candles to false gods. There are churches where the entire congregation says Mass with the priest;

where the priest sometimes talks to the people instead of saying Mass.

What we have catalogued is just a tiny sampling of the kind of thing that occurs in every diocese in the world where the New Mass is celebrated, to one degree or another. Our Lord tells us, “By their fruits you shall know them” (Mt. 7:16). The fruits of the New Mass are incalculably scandalous, sacrilegious and idolatrous. This is because the New Mass itself, is a false, invalid Mass and an abomination.

Pro-abortion politician John Kerry receiving “communion” at a Novus Ordo Mass

Even an organization which defends the New Mass was forced to admit the following about the typical New Mass – i.e., the New Mass normally offered in the churches (without even necessarily considering the aforementioned abominations and sacrileges that are commonplace): “Most of the New Masses we’ve attended… are happy-clappy festivities, the music is atrocious, the sermons are vacuous, and they are irreverent...” New Oxford Review, Berkeley, CA, November, 2006, “Notes.”

“Cardinal” Bergoglio giving “communion” in the hand in 2004

Francis has of course given communion in the hand throughout his life. Francis has never offered a valid mass, not just because he offers the invalid New Mass, but also because he was “ordained” on 12/13/69 in the new, invalid Vatican II rite of ordination.

Francis, like his predecessor Benedict XVI, was “consecrated a bishop” in the new, invalid rite of consecration for Bishops. A true pope is the bishop of Rome. Francis is not a bishop. That’s another reason he is not the pope.

And since Francis was “ordained priest” in the invalid New Rite of Ordination on Dec. 13, 1969; this means he is not even a validly ordained priest!

Antipope Francis gave “Communion” to Pro-Aborts

As expected at Antipope Francis’ installation mass, no one who wanted “communion” was refused. That means that Antipope Francis enabled many of the most notorious supporters of abortion and other evils in the world to receive “communion.” This included, among many others, Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi.

Antipope Francis I

Reports confirmed that both Biden and Pelosi received “communion” at Francis’ service. It was also remarkable to consider the comments of one commentator of the Vatican II sect with respect to this matter.

The woman, a devoted and deluded supporter of the antipopes, claimed that when Bergoglio was a “Bishop” he was opposed to pro-abortion figures receiving “communion.” - Yeah, sure!

For that reason, she opined, as “Pope” Francis, during his installation mass, he would not distribute communion to the abortion supporters himself, but would instead, allow his 500 or so “priests” to do it.

Installation “Mass” of Antipope Francis

O.K. So, according to her, it’s fine if the pro-abortionists receive communion at Francis’ service, even if it’s from priests Francis himself has empowered to distribute communion, as long as the pro-abortionists don’t receive it directly from Francis himself.

Consider the evil and stupidity involved in such a conclusion.

Of course, since he allowed them to receive “communion,” and implemented a policy to refuse no one, their reception from the “priests” is equivalent to having received it from his hand (or at least, with his approval)! There is no difference!

Notorious pro-abortionists present at installation “Mass”

The Vatican II sect accepts abortion. The Vatican II sect is pro-abortion. The Vatican II sect has never excommunicated anyone who votes in favor of allowing abortion. Antipope Francis accepts those who are pro-abortion. That’s a fact!

The self deception, justification for evil, and hatred of the truth, exhibited by the people who maintain a position similar to the woman I’ve just described, is remarkable, and that’s why God, in His Justice has given these heretics, not only a completely non-Catholic, apostate Antipope, but a layman as their leader.

Antipope Francis also singled out Jews, heretics and pagans as part of his “homily.” They also sat in an elevated, and distinguished position at his service. Moreover, Antipope Francis made sure to pray with the so-called “Orthodox” Patriarch of Constantinople, Bartholomew, a notorious heretic and schismatic, who rejects the Papacy and Vatican I.

“Orthodox” Patriarch of Constantinople

This heretical act by Antipope Francis, demonstrates without any doubt, that he considers the so-called “Orthodox” to be in the Church of Christ, just as the previous antipopes did, and that position is blatantly heretical, of course.

Antipope Francis’ homily was also completely meaningless and empty. It concerned how we should be “protectors, loving, caring, and even not to be afraid to embrace tenderness.” He doesn’t explain what any of that means.

He also spoke about the destruction of death, while right in his audience, are people who support the most notorious, and destructive form of death, such as abortion. He not only doesn’t say anything against them, he not only honors them, and allows them to be present, but he enables them to receive “communion.”

Jewish Rabbis attend installation “Mass”

He also speaks about how we must help the poorest and the neediest, and the most helpless, while he says nothing at all about the evil of abortion, which destroys infants, who are, naturally speaking, the most helpless and the neediest.

His “homily” was nothing more than the completely empty, meaningless, and faithless message from a Novus Ordo layman, falsely posing as a cleric, someone who couldn’t care less about the issues of faith, and whose message only consists of an amorphous, undefined recommendation to be good to your neighbor, and help the poor, which would be embraced by members of almost any religion.

Preparing table for the empty, invalid Novus Ordo “Mass”

There is much more on Antipope Francis, including how what we’re seeing fits into the Apocalypse, which we will hopefully cover soon, but I wanted to offer some quick comments about his installation “Mass.”

Antipope Francis approved of the False Apparition of Medjugorje

MedjugorjeToday, March 17, 2013: “As Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Pope Francis opened his diocese to Medjugorje priests, and asked Fr. Jozo Zovko to bless him. And shortly before he left for the papal conclave in Rome, he approved of visionary Ivan Dragicevic’s public apparition arrangements that drew 10,000 people.”

The so-called Marian apparitions at Medjugorje are hoaxes made by the Devil with the intention to lead souls astray. A true apparition from Our Lady cannot contain heresies, but Medjugorje contains numerous condemned heresies as one can see in this article: Medjugorje Hoax Exposed.

Yet Antipope Francis was “very happy” his fellow “Archbishop” went to Medjugorje.

MedjugorjeToday, March 13, 2013: “Medjugorje has been a cause of joy for the new Pope Francis, one of his fellow Archbishops from Argentina told during his visit in May 2006. Monsignor Emilio Ognenovich, retired Archbishop of Mercedes-Luján (Argentina) visited Medjugorje from May 25th to 31st 2006, and then told Medjugorje’s official parish website: ‘I will share my own personal conviction with my fellow bishops in the Bishops Conference of Argentina, and also with our cardinal, Mons. Bergoglio, who was very happy when I told him that I was going to Medjugorje.’”

Freemasons Endorse Francis; Antipope Francis is a Freemason?

Francis giving the sign of Master of the Second Veil in Freemasonry?

Francis was recently praised by the Grand Masters of the Grand Orient Lodges of Italy and Argentina. They publicly supported Francis’ election as the new antipope.

Freemasons praise Antipope Francis

The Eponymous Flower, Wednesday, September 4, 2013: “Freemasons of the Grand Orient Attempt to Pocket Pope Francis. (Rimini) "Get back out of the catacombs and give back human dignity is the invitation to Pope Francis and the Rimini Meeting, it is a theme and a path which the Grand Orient of Italy and has anticipated," that is the message of Freemasonry on its website. The Grand Orient of Italy, located in Palazzo Giustiniani in Rome is the most important centre of Freemasonry on the Apennine Peninsula. The Freemasons applaud the Pope and try to usurp him. He ultimately represents only what Freemasonry has long since adulterated. … "The simple cross that he has worn on the white robe, offers hope that a Church of the people has been won back for dialogue with all people of good will and of Freemasonry, which, - as the example of Latin America shows - works for the welfare and progress of humanity oriented to Simon Bolivar, Salvador Allende and Jose Marti, just to name a few." said Corrispondenza Romana.”

The article went on to say: “It’s easy to love him [Francis]!”

Jorge Bergoglio makes freemasonic hand sign?

In this picture taken of Francis, we can see him giving what looks like the sign of the master of the second veil in Freemasonry.

This is a clear hand gesture given by Freemasons throughout history. It would be no surprise to find out that Francis is a Freemason, because his beliefs which have been manifested by his words and deeds are indeed masonic. The main teaching of Freemasonry is that all religions lead to God. As we have clearly proven in this overview of Francis – this is exactly what he believes.

Francis – a friend of “all religions”

Pope Leo XIII, Custodi di Quella fede (# 15), Dec. 8, 1892: “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...”

In short, Francis firmly believes and teaches the same heresies that have been promoted by the other Vatican II antipopes. Francis is a total heretic and an apostate. Catholic dogma defines that a heretic is not a member of the Catholic Church. It is therefore infallible that Francis is not a valid pope but a heretical non-Catholic antipope.

Other Statements and Heresies of Francis

On p. 10 of the English translation of the La Civilta Cattolica interview with Antonio Spadaro, Francis praises uncertainty and condemns doctrinal security:

“If a person says that he met God with total certainty and is not touched by a margin of uncertainty, then this is not good. For me, this is an important key. If one has the answers to all the questions—that is the proof that God is not with him. It means that he is a false prophet using religion for himself. The great leaders of the people of God, like Moses, have always left room for doubt. You must leave room for the Lord, not for our certainties; we must be humble. Uncertainty is in every true discernment that is open to finding confirmation in spiritual consolation.” Thinking Faith, Sept. 19, 2013, p. 10.

In this context Francis speaks of how it’s necessary to have uncertainty and doubt about your encounter with God and beliefs about God and he cites Moses as an example of this even though Moses was uncertain not about God, but about himself! He says that if you’re certain of your position, that’s a sign that you are not of God. He even criticizes the view which declares with certitude that “God is here,” even though that’s exactly what the Catholic Church teaches about God’s Presence in His Church, and among the faithful believers, and on His definite Eucharistic Presence in True Masses and Tabernacles.

As the Council of Trent infallibly taught:

Pope Julius III, Council of Trent (1551): “If anyone denies that in the sacrament of the most holy Eucharist there are truly, really, and substantially contained the body and blood together with the soul and divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ, and therefore the whole Christ, but shall say that He is in it as by a sign or figure, let him be anathema.” (Can. 1 on the Eucharist)

He also says “those who today always look for disciplinarian solutions, those who long for an exaggerated doctrinal ‘security,’ those who stubbornly try to recover a past that no longer existsThinking Faith, Sept. 19, 2013, p. 12. – these are the people he’s denouncing, the people who have “doctrinal security” and “certainty”, “those who stubbornly try to recover a past that no longer exists”.

“Doctrinal security” and “certainty” is what the Church provides for us, especially in its past teachings, yet he’s criticizing doctrinal security and “a past that no longer exists”. But, he goes on to say, “I have dogmatic certainty.” So he does have one. He says:

I have dogmatic certainty: God is in every person’s life. God is in everyone’s life, even if the life of a person has been a disaster, even if it is destroyed by vices, drugs or anything else – God is in this person’s life.” Thinking Faith, Sept. 19, 2013, p. 12.

So you should doubt things and forget about dogmatic security and certainty and a past that no longer exists except in one area, that no matter how sinful you are, no matter how much you reject God, God is still with you.

This is just wicked faithlessness. It’s also interesting that the article begins by noting that Francis has austere and simple living quarters. Francis also claims to spend an hour a day in front of the “Blessed Sacrament” and to pray constantly. He’s obviously not spending time in front of the Blessed Sacrament, because it’s not present in the Novus Ordo “Mass.”

Francis I and Benedict XVI – deceiving piety

But this is an example of how externals can be deceiving. Acts of apparent piety can be deceiving. Francis is totally evil as his complete rejection of Christ and the Catholic Faith shows.

When a person rejects the Faith of God, it does not matter what else he or she does. Faith is essential. Without faith it’s impossible to please God, as Hebrews 11:6 says. That’s why we see throughout the Scriptures that faith is important to God.

St. Paul preaching about Faith

Those who deny faith sever the initial connection to Him and are worthless in His sight. That’s why if people are rejecting the faith you cannot judge them by what other activities they may be involved with. You must judge them based on their conformity to the rule of faith.

On p. 2, Francis also says, “... the entrance [to my apartment] is really tight. People can come only in dribs and drabs, and I cannot live without people. I need to live my life with others.”

I find that interesting because he says he must constantly be around other people. Francis is clearly evil, and, according to many Saints and Doctors of the Church, evil people generally hate solitude and have never found God in solitude.

Francis cannot stand solitude

Francis also makes numerous statements which prove that he’s a total modernist. What he says is essentially exactly what Pius X condemned in his encyclical against the modernists.

For example, on p. 5, Francis speaks of how “There is no full identity without belonging to a people. No one is saved alone, as an isolated individual, but God attracts us looking at the complex web of relationships that take place in the human community.”

He’s speaking of the collective community. In No. 23, of Pacendi, the encyclical against the Modernists, Pius X said, “What, then, is the Church? [According to the modernists] It is the product of the collective conscience…”

That’s what Francis is essentially saying. He also speaks of experience. On p. 6 he refers to “it is the experience of ‘holy mother the hierarchical church’”. He makes this statement in the context of speaking about how the faithful considered as a whole possess infallibility, which is based on their collective experience. Modernists frequently speak of experience. He says:

And all the faithful, considered as a whole, are infallible in matters of belief, and the people display this infallibilitas in credendo, this infallibility in believing, through a supernatural sense of the faith of all the people walking together. … And, of course, we must be very careful not to think that this infallibilitas of all the faithful I am talking about in the light of Vatican II is a form of populism.” Thinking Faith, Sept. 19, 2013, p. 6-7.

Pius X pointed out that the Modernist heretics apply experience to tradition to destroy it, they don’t view tradition as something handed down and faithfully guarded, but as something to be viewed in the light of people’s “experience” and by “the human community… considered as a whole.” That’s the language Francis uses because he’s a modernist; he’s not a Catholic.

A HERETIC CANNOT BE A VALID POPE

St. Robert Bellarmine: “A pope who is a manifest heretic automatically (per se) ceases to be pope and head, just as he ceases automatically to be a Christian and a member of the Church. Wherefore, he can be judged and punished by the Church. This is the teaching of all the ancient Fathers who teach that manifest heretics immediately lose all jurisdiction.” (De Romano Pontifice, II, 30)

It is a proven fact that Bergoglio (Francis I) is a non-Catholic heretic. The Catholic Church infallibly teaches that a heretic cannot be validly elected Pope (see the Bull Cum ex Apostolatus Officio below), since a heretic is not a member of the Catholic Church. Jorge Bergoglio therefore is a non-Catholic Antipope whose election was utterly null and void.

Pope Paul IV, Bull Cum ex Apostolatus Officio, Feb. 15, 1559: “6. In addition, [by this Our Constitution, which is to remain valid in perpetuity We enact, determine, decree and define:-] that if ever at any time it shall appear that any Bishop, even if he be acting as an Archbishop, Patriarch or Primate; or any Cardinal of the aforesaid Roman Church, or, as has already been mentioned, any legate, or even the Roman Pontiff, prior to his promotion or his elevation as Cardinal or Roman Pontiff, has deviated from the Catholic Faith or fallen into some heresy:

(i) the promotion or elevation, even if it shall have been uncontested and by the unanimous assent of all the Cardinals, shall be null, void and worthless;

(ii) it shall not be possible for it to acquire validity (nor for it to be said that it has thus acquired validity) through the acceptance of the office, of consecration, of subsequent authority, nor through possession of administration, nor through the putative enthronement of a Roman Pontiff, or Veneration, or obedience accorded to such by all, nor through the lapse of any period of time in the foregoing situation;

(iii) it shall not be held as partially legitimate in any way

(vi) those thus promoted or elevated shall be deprived automatically, and without need for any further declaration, of all dignity, position, honour, title, authority, office and power….

10. No one at all, therefore, may infringe this document of our approbation, re-introduction, sanction, statute and derogation of wills and decrees, or by rash presumption contradict it. If anyone, however, should presume to attempt this, let him know that he is destined to incur the wrath of Almighty God and of the blessed Apostles, Peter and Paul.

Given in Rome at Saint Peter’s in the year of the Incarnation of the Lord 1559, 15th February, in the fourth year of our Pontificate.

+ I, Paul, Bishop of the Catholic Church…”

In the Apocalypse, chapters 17 and 18, there is predicted that a whore will arise in the last days from the city of seven hills, which is Rome. This whore will tread upon the blood of the martyrs and saints. This whore is clearly contrasted with the immaculate bride of Christ, the Catholic Church. In other words, the whore of Babylon will be a false church from Rome that will appear in the last days. This Whore of Babylon is the Vatican II sect, a false bride which arises in Rome in the last days in order to deceive the Catholic Faithful.

In her appearance at La Salette, France, Sept. 19, 1846, the Blessed Mother predicted: “Rome will lose the Faith and become the seat of the Anti-Christ… the Church will be in eclipse.”

The Teaching of the Catholic Church on Heresy

To understand why Francis cannot be the Pope, one must understand heresy and apostasy. Heresy is the obstinate denial or doubt by a baptized person of an article of divine and Catholic Faith. In other words, a baptized person who deliberately denies an authoritative teaching of the Catholic Church is a heretic. Pope Leo XIII proclaims this teaching in his encyclical Satis Cognitum.

Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum (# 9), June 29, 1896: “The practice of the Church has always been the same, as is shown by the unanimous teaching of the Fathers, who were wont to hold as outside Catholic communion, and alien to the Church, whoever would recede in the least degree from any point of doctrine proposed by her authoritative Magisterium.”

Apostasy, on the other hand, is not merely the denial or doubt of one or more teachings of the Catholic Church, but a complete rejection of the Christian Faith altogether. In this article we have shown that Francis is both a heretic and an apostate.

As the teaching of Pope Leo XIII shows, a heretic is outside Catholic communion and alien to the Church. The same therefore goes for apostates, since all apostates are also heretics. The fact that a heretic is outside the Catholic Church is a defined dogma affirmed by many Popes. A heretic cannot be inside the Catholic Church, because by denying the faith he is automatically expelled from Her.

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, ex cathedra: “The Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that all those who are outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans but also Jews or heretics and schismatics…”

We see here that Pope Eugene IV defined infallibly that all heretics are outside the Catholic Church.

Pope Innocent III, Eius exemplo, 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 of which we believe that no one is saved.”

We see in this solemn profession of faith of Pope Innocent III that the one true Church of Christ cannot include heretics.

In fact, so foreign are heretics to the Catholic Church that the Catholic Church has actually defined that heretics are the gates of hell.

Pope Vigilius, Second Council of Constantinople, 553: “… we bear in mind what was promised about the holy Church and Him who said the gates of hell will not prevail against it (by these we understand the death-dealing tongues of heretics)…”

Pope St. Leo IX, Sept. 2, 1053: “The holy Church built upon a rock, that is Christ, and upon Peter… because by the gates of Hell, that is, by the disputations of heretics which lead the vain to destruction, it would never be overcome.”

Thus, it is infallible Catholic truth that a heretic cannot be a member of the Catholic Church. Many other authorities could be brought forward to further prove this point, but we will simply quote Pope Leo XIII again, who summarizes this dogmatic teaching of the Church quite well.

Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum (# 9): “No one who merely disbelieves in all (these heresies) can for that reason regard himself as a Catholic or call himself one. For there may be or may arise some other heresies, which are not set out in this work of ours, and, if any one holds to a single one of these he is not a Catholic.”

And because a heretic cannot be a Catholic or a member of the Catholic Church, it is a fact that a heretic cannot be a Pope, because a Pope is the head of the Catholic Church.

Pope Pius IX, First Vatican Council, Sess. IV, Chap. 3: “… the Pontiff of Rome himself is the successor of the blessed Peter, the chief of the apostles, and is the true vicar of Christ and head of the whole Church…”

The Pope is the head of the whole Catholic Church. And we already saw that heretics cannot be members of the Catholic Church. Therefore, it is infallible that a heretic cannot be a Pope, because a heretic cannot be the head of that which he is not a member. This is why the Saints and Doctors of the Church consistently teach that if a Pope were to become a manifest heretic he would immediately lose the office of Pope.

St. Antoninus: “In the case in which the pope would become a heretic, he would find himself, by that fact alone and without any other sentence, separated from the Church. A head separated from a body cannot, as long as it remains separated, be head of the same body from which it was cut off. A pope who would be separated from the Church by heresy, therefore, would by that very fact itself cease to be head of the Church. He could not be a heretic and remain pope, because, since he is outside of the Church, he cannot possess the keys of the Church.” (Summa Theologica, cited in Actes de Vatican I. V. Frond pub.)

St. Alphonsus, Bishop and Doctor of the Church: “If ever a Pope, as a private person, should fall into heresy, he would at once fall from the Pontificate.” (Oeuvres Complètes. 9:232)

St. Francis De Sales, Bishop and Doctor of the Church: “Now when the Pope is explicitly a heretic, he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church…” (The Catholic Controversy, TAN Books, pp. 305-306)

St. Robert Bellarmine, Cardinal and Doctor of the Church: “This principle is most certain. The non-Christian cannot in any way be Pope, as Cajetan himself admits. The reason for this is that he cannot be head of what he is not a member; now he who is not a Christian is not a member of the Church, and a manifest heretic is not a Christian, as is clearly taught by St. Cyprian, St. Athanasius, St. Augustine, St. Jerome and others; therefore the manifest heretic cannot be Pope.” (De Romano Pontifice, II, 30)

The testimonies of these great Catholic saints show that it is impossible for a heretic to be the head of the Catholic Church, because he is not a member of Her. This is not to say that a wicked man, who was not a heretic, could not be Pope. A wicked man who did not deny the faith could certainly be Pope, as Church history shows; but a heretic who denies the faith can never be Pope, because heresy places one outside the Church, while immorality without heresy places one in a state of mortal sin but not outside the Church.

Pope Pius XII, Mystici Corporis Christi (# 23), June 29, 1943: “For not every sin, however grave it may be, is such as of its own nature to sever a man from the Body of the Church, as does schism or heresy or apostasy.”

We can see that it’s the teaching of the Catholic Church that a man is severed from the Church and Salvation by heresy, schism or apostasy.

Moreover, in judging that Francis is a heretic and is not the Pope (and is therefore an Antipope), one is not judging the Holy See; rather, as the teaching already quoted shows, one is correctly identifying that a manifest heretic is outside the Church and therefore cannot occupy the Holy See.

In two of his coronation sermons, Pope Innocent III (1198-1216) — considered one of the greatest canonists of his time — explained how a pope can “wither away into heresy” and “not believe” the Faith and that a pope who falls into the sin of heresy is already “judged.”

Pope Innocent III: “Without faith it is impossible to please God.’… And so the faith of the Apostolic See never failed, even in the most trying circumstances [turbatione], but always continued intact and undiminished, so that the privilege of Peter remained constant and unshaken. “To this end faith is so necessary for me that, though I have for other sins God alone as my judge, it is alone for a sin committed against faith that I may be judged by the Church. [propter solum peccatum quod in fide commititur possem ab Ecclesia judicari.] For ‘he who does not believe is already judged’.” (Sermo 2: In Consecratione, PL 218:656)

Pope Innocent III: “You are the salt of the earth… Still less can the Roman Pontiff boast, for he can be judged by men — or rather he can be shown to be judged, if he manifestly ‘loses his savor’ in heresy. [quia potest ab hominibus judicari, vel potius judicatus ostendi, si videlicet evanescit in haeresim.] For he who does not believe is already judged.” (Sermo 4: In Consecratione, PL 218:670)

Another translation of Sermon 4 reads:

Pope Innocent III: “The Roman Pontiff has no superior but God. Who, therefore, (should a pope ‘lose his savor’) could cast him out or trample him under foot—since of the pope it is said ‘gather thy flock into thy fold’? Truly, he should not flatter himself about his power, nor should he rashly glory in his honor and high estate, because the less he is judged by man, the more he is judged by God. Still the less can the Roman Pontiff glory because he can be judged by men or rather, can be shown to be already judged, if, for example, he should wither away into heresy; because “he who does not believe is already judged.” (St. John 3:18) In such a case it should be said of him: ‘If salt should lose its savor, it is good for nothing but to be cast out and trampled under foot by men.’” (Sermo 4: In Consecratione, PL 218:670)

A pope who commits the sin of heresy, then, can indeed be “shown to be judged.”

St. Robert Bellarmine: “A pope who is a manifest heretic automatically (per se) ceases to be pope and head, just as he ceases automatically to be a Christian and a member of the Church. Wherefore, he can be judged and punished by the Church. This is the teaching of all the ancient Fathers who teach that manifest heretics immediately lose all jurisdiction.” (De Romano Pontifice, II, 30)

And the truth expressed by these saints, such as St. Robert Bellarmine, that a heretic cannot be the Pope, is not merely their fallible opinion, as some defenders of Francis have argued; rather, the teaching expressed by these saints is a dogmatic fact. It is rooted in the infallible dogma that heretics cannot be members of the Catholic Church, which is why Pope Innocent III taught that a Pope is “already judged, if, for example, he should wither away into heresy.”

Therefore, to hold the position that a heretic can be the Pope is heretical. So let no defender of Francis tell you that it does not matter whether or not he is a heretic, or that even if he is a heretic he can still be the Pope. No, this is not true, as we have proven. If Francis is the Pope, he cannot be a heretic. He must be a Catholic and a member of the Catholic Church. But, as we have shown, Francis is definitely neither a Catholic nor a member of the Catholic Church. Therefore, he absolutely cannot be its head.

Concluding Points

So the question that everyone professing to be Catholic must ask himself is this: Is Francis the head of my Church? Or is Francis part of a different religion?

If Antipope Francis is part of a different religion, and who would dare deny this, then he cannot be the head of the Catholic Church.

St. Francis De Sales, Doctor of the Church: “It would indeed be one of the strangest monsters that could be seen – if the head of the Church were not of the Church.” (The Catholic Controversy, p. 45)

This is why Pope Paul IV solemnly taught in his Feb. 15, 1559 Bull, cum ex Apostolatus officio, that it is impossible for a heretic to be validly elected Pope.

Furthermore, there are those who have rightfully acknowledged that the Vatican II Church is clearly not the Catholic Church, but they still maintain that Antipope Francis is the Pope. They hold that Antipope Francis can be a true Pope despite the fact that he is the head of a non-Catholic Church. To them we must say, in addition to what has been stated so far, that such a position separates Pope from Church, which is impossible.

Pope Leo XIII, Jan. 22, 1899: “Where Peter is, there is the Church.”

Therefore, to acknowledge the Vatican II Church as a false Church requires that one acknowledge its head, Antipope Francis, as a false Peter. On the other hand, to acknowledge Antipope Francis as a true Peter requires that one acknowledge his false Vatican II Church as a true Church.

Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum (#15) June 29, 1896: “When the divine founder decreed that the Church should be one in faith, in government, and in communion, He chose Peter and his successors as the principle and center, as it were, of this unity.”

Moreover, to obstinately acknowledge Antipope Francis as a true Pope requires that you have the same faith as he does, and are in communion with his Vatican II Church.

Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum (# 10), June 29, 1896: “For this reason, as the unity of the faith is of necessity required for the unity of the Church, inasmuch as it is the body of the faithful, so also for this same unity, inasmuch as the Church is a divinely constituted society, unity of government, which effects and involves unity of communion, is necessary jure divino (by divine law).”

And this is precisely why this issue is so important. Because to affirm that a particular person is your Pope, the head of your Church, means, by divine law, that you share communion and faith with that person and with his Church.

Pope Gregory XVI, on the Church and Papacy, May 17, 1835: “… Christ established this ecclesiastical power for the benefit of unity. And what is this unity unless one person is placed in charge of the whole Church who protects it and joins all its members in the one profession of faith…”

Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos (#9), on the unity of the Church: “… that unity can only arise from one teaching authority, one law of belief and one faith of Christians.”

Pope Pius X, Encyclical, May 26, 1910: “… the Church remains immutable and constant, ‘as the pillar and foundation of truth,’ in professing one identical doctrine…”

St. Francis De Sales, Doctor of the Church: “The Church is a holy university or general company of men united and collected together in the profession of one same Christian faith…” (The Catholic Controversy, p. 161)

But to affirm that you profess the same faith as Antipope Francis, after seeing the facts that we have presented, is literally to deny the faith and break communion with the Catholic Church.

So, in order to profess the Catholic Faith whole and undefiled, and in order to declare that one is not part of a false Church, one must denounce Francis as a non-Catholic Antipope. A person cannot use the excuse that he does not have the authority to make this judgment about Antipope Francis either, because the judgment that a Catholic makes about Antipope Francis, is the exact same judgment, with the exact same authority, that a Catholic makes when he professes that he does not belong to the Lutheran, Calvinist, Presbyterian or Baptist sects; and that he is not in the same Church as those who deny Catholic teaching.

Catholics distinguish the true Church from the members of these countless sects, not by a specific declaration from Church authority about every single one of these people and their sects (which would be impossible for the Church to give), but rather by their open rejection of Catholic teaching, or by their open membership in a non-Catholic religious community, or by their open profession of a non-Catholic Faith. This has always been the way that the true Church has distinguished itself from heretical sects and the members of the true Church from the members of heretical sects.

Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum (# 9), June 29, 1896: “The practice of the Church has always been the same, as is shown by the unanimous teaching of the Fathers, WHO WERE WONT TO HOLD AS OUTSIDE CATHOLIC COMMUNION, AND ALIEN TO THE CHURCH, WHOEVER WOULD RECEDE IN THE LEAST DEGREE FROM ANY POINT OF DOCTRINE PROPOSED BY HER AUTHORITATIVE MAGISTERIUM.”

St. Robert Bellarmine, De Romano Pontifice, II, 30: “… for men are not bound, or able to read hearts; BUT WHEN THEY SEE THAT SOMEONE IS A HERETIC BY HIS EXTERNAL WORKS, THEY JUDGE HIM TO BE A HERETIC PURE AND SIMPLE, AND CONDEMN HIM AS A HERETIC.”

Therefore, to say that you don’t feel that you have the authority to figure out the undeniable fact that Antipope Francis is a non-Catholic, and the head of a non-Catholic Church, means that you don’t have the authority to determine that any heretic is a non-Catholic and outside the Church. This means that you don’t have the authority to distinguish between the true Church and the countless heretical sects in the world. It means that you don’t have the authority to distinguish between the true Church and a faceless blob of baptized heretics.

Therefore, those who assert that Antipope Francis is the Pope, after seeing the facts that we have presented, are in communion with a non-Catholic sect, the non-Catholic Church of Antipope Francis. They are sharing faith with a non-Catholic heretic, Antipope Francis. They are asserting that a manifest heretic, Antipope Francis, is a member of the Catholic Church, which is a denial of Catholic dogma. They are asserting that Catholics have no authority to distinguish the true Church of Christ from a heretical sect or the members of the true Church of Christ from the members of heretical sects; and they are asserting that a true Pope can authoritatively promulgate false doctrines.

The truth, on the other hand, is that Antipope Francis is not a true successor of Peter; but rather, he is another one of the more than 40 Antipopes which the Church has had to deal with in her long history.

The truth is that none of the four men who foisted upon the world this new Vatican II religion were true successors of Peter, but Antipope revolutionaries, who tried to impose a new faith, a new Mass and a new Gospel.

The truth is that God has allowed a counterfeit Catholic Church to be set up in the times of the great apostasy, in which we are living. This counterfeit Church attempts to eclipse the true Church of Christ, which God allows as a punishment for sin in the greatest tribulation that the world has ever seen.

The truth is that when there is a true Pope he is the center of unity in the Church; however, it is also true that the Church can be without a true Pope for a long period of time. This period of time when the Chair of Peter is vacant occurs every time a Pope dies, and has lasted for as long as 3 1/2 years in Church history. This period of time when the Church is without a Pope is called a Papal interregnum, which, according to theologians, such as the 19th century Fr. Edmund O’Reilly, could easily last longer than 35 years. Thus, there is nothing incompatible with the promises of Christ to His Church for Him to leave the Church without a Pope for decades through the worst part of the great apostasy; in fact, it is in not having a true Pope to guide people through the great apostasy which makes this apostasy so devastating to so many.

The truth remains that the Catholic Church is the one Church founded by Christ to which all must belong in order to be saved, and that this Church still exists in a remnant of Catholics who maintain the infallible teachings of the true Popes throughout history.

St. Athanasius: “Even if Catholics faithful to Tradition were reduced to a handful, they would be the true Church.”

At one point in the Church’s history, only a few years before Gregory’s [Nazianz] present preaching (+380 A.D.), perhaps the number of Catholic bishops in possession of sees, as opposed to Arian bishops in possession of sees, was no greater than something between 1% and 3% of the total. Had doctrine been determined by popularity, today we should all be deniers of Christ and opponents of the Spirit.” (W.A. Jurgens, The Faith of the Early Fathers, Vol. 2, p. 39.)

If the Arian heresy was so bad that approximately 1% of the jurisdictional bishops remained Catholic and 99% became Arian, and the Great Apostasy preceding the Second Coming of Christ is predicted to be even worse – the worst apostasy of all time – then one should not be surprised by the fact that there are barely or any authentically Catholic priests in the world today and no fully Catholic jurisdictional (i.e., governing) bishops to speak of and that an Antipope is reigning from Rome (as predicted by Our Lady of La Salette) and heading a counterfeit Catholic Church of apostasy, as the foregoing has so clearly shown.

The truth is that God has not abandoned His Catholic Church; it remains the immaculate Bride of Christ, and the gates of hell will never prevail against this Church that Jesus founded upon Peter the Rock.

Pope Vigilius, Second Council of Constantinople, 553: “… we bear in mind what was promised about the holy Church and Him who said the gates of hell will not prevail against it (by these we understand the death-dealing tongues of heretics)…”

Pope Innocent III, Eius exemplo, 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 of which we believe that no one is saved.”

See the video “What Francis Really believes” and our website for more information about Francis’ apostasy and the true Catholic faith.

Why Francis Must Not Be Considered the Pope

The Catholic Church teaches the following truths: (1) baptized persons who dissent from an authoritative teaching of the Catholic Church become heretics. By such dissent heretics are automatically expelled from the Church. As a consequence of their automatic expulsion from the Church, heretics are incapable of holding an office in the Church including that of the papacy, for they are not even members of the Church.

(2) the authoritative teaching of the Catholic Church’s magisterium is infallible. As a consequence the magisterium cannot authoritatively promulgate or endorse false doctrine.

In view of the current situation of the Church, the conclusion derived from these two truths are (1) since Francis, the man currently regarded by many as the Catholic pope, clearly rejects numerous Catholic teaching and endorses religious indifferentism, he is a heretic who cannot hold the papal office, for he is not even a member of the Catholic Church, and (2) since Francis presides over a body which adheres to the false teachings of Vatican II and considers these teachings as authoritative, he cannot in fact yield the infallible teaching authority of the Catholic magisterium.

Antipope Francis - a manifest heretic

He is therefore not the pope and the chair of St. Peter is vacant.

Both truths, that is (1) the Church’s teaching on heretics, and (2) the Church’s teaching on the infallibility of the magisterium prove that Francis is not the pope but a heretical non-Catholic antipope.

Both arguments are definitive and irrefutable. They have been substantiated in tremendous detail and with abundant documentation. But there’s another argument that reaches the same conclusion, perhaps even more simply and directly, and it does so without even entering into a discussion of the theological principles, facts or arguments which demonstrate that Francis is a heretic and must be considered one, and/or, that the Vatican II sect has used what would be infallible authority if its leaders were valid Catholic popes, to impose its false doctrine.

This third argument, which reaches the same conclusion without the aforementioned steps of argumentation, concerns merely recognizing the Catholic Church’s teaching on professing the true faith and simply recognizing the content of Francis’ profession of faith.

In his 1943 encyclical, Mystici Corporis Christii (# 22), Pope Pius XII taught, “Actually only those are to be included as members of the Church who have received the laver of regeneration and profess the true faith...” It is the teaching of the Catholic Church that you can only consider as members of the Catholic Church those “who have received the laver of regeneration (that is, water baptism) and profess the true faith.”

Consider this very carefully.

If someone does not profess the true faith, he cannot be considered a member of the Catholic Church.

In the Latin of Mystici Corporis (# 22), the word for ‘profess’ is ‘profitentur.’ Profitentur is the third person plural of the verb ‘profiteor’ - which means profess, publicly declare, openly confess.

The verb refers to what is stated, displayed or acknowledged out in the open. To be considered part of the Church, one must publicly state, display and declare the true faith. In the Latin, of Mystici Corporis (# 22), the words for ‘and the true faith,’ are ‘veramque fidem.’

So the simple question is does Francis profess, state and display the true faith?

In considering the question, remember that to be considered a member of the Church, you cannot simply call yourself a Catholic, but profess or display a false faith. There are numerous schismatic bodies that claim the name “Catholic.”

What you call yourself is not relevant to this particular issue. What matters is that to be considered part of the Church, the faith you profess must be the true faith, ‘veram fidem.’

Before answering the question whether Francis professes and displays the true faith, note that the very same Latin word, profiteor - which was used by Pius XII in his Mystici Corporis, was also used by Pope Eugene IV in the Council of Florence. In the solemn dogmatic Bull, Cantate Domino, 1441, Pope Eugene IV declared:

“It [The Holy Roman Church] firmly believes, professes (profitetur) and preaches that all those who are outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans but also Jews or heretics and schismatics, cannot share in eternal life and will go into the everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels, unless they are joined to the Church before the end of their lives; that the unity of the ecclesiastical body is of such importance that only for those who abide in it do the Church’s Sacraments contribute to salvation and do fasts, almsgiving and other works of piety and practices of the Christian militia produce eternal rewards, and that nobody can be saved, no matter how much he has given away in alms and even if he has shed blood in the name of Christ, unless he has persevered in the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church.”

Cantate Domino of Pope Eugene IV

In defining this point of the true faith the Council used profitetur, professes, the third person singular of the very same verb, profiteor - which Pius XII used. Hence the profession of the true faith on salvation is the following: (1) all who die outside the Catholic Church are not saved (2) it’s so necessary and important to belong to the Catholic Church that spiritual practices will only be productive for salvation for those in it, and (3) it’s so necessary to join the Catholic Church that even if you shed blood in the name of Christ you will not be saved if you are not part of the Catholic Church.

If someone professes, states or displays a position contrary to this truth on the doctrine of salvation, he is not professing the true faith. He is professing a false non-Catholic faith.

That’s precisely why Pope Leo XIII declared in the encyclical 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 Leo XIII’s encyclical

Moreover, the Council of Florence defined as a dogma that it’s a mortal sin to observe Judaism or the Mosaic Law after the promulgation of the Gospel. In doing so the Council again used the very same word profitetur, professes, from the very same verb, profiteor.

Thus, professing the true faith on Judaism, means stating, declaring, displaying that the observance of Judaism or the Mosaic Law is condemned, mortally sinful and incompatible with salvation. If someone professes a different position on the Jews and their religious practices, he is not professing the true faith. He is professing a false non-Catholic faith.

Kosher Frank - antipope

So, the question is - does Francis profess the true faith?

Of course, the answer, as any honest person familiar with our material knows, is a resounding and thunderous, No!

Antipope Francis on converting to Catholic Church – No No No!

In less than a year, Francis has publicly repudiated the necessity for non-Catholics to convert to the Catholic Church approximately ten different times. He did so emphatically three times in one speech on August 7, 2013.

Antipope Francis gives a resounding No!

He said, “Do you need to convince the other to become Catholic? No, no, no!”

It is indisputable, Francis does not profess the true faith. He professes, displays and states a false non-Catholic faith. In his interview with Eugenio Scalfari, Francis repeatedly denounced converting non-Catholics. He explicitly stated that he has no intention of converting the atheist.

He assured his good friend, Abraham Skorka that the Catholic Church cannot engage in evangelization of Jews or others.

Frank doesn’t make sense - unity without conversion!

In his interview with Antonio Spadaro, he stated that the way for unity with the “Orthodox” is not their conversion, but for them to remain non-Catholic.

In a December 14, 2013 interview with La Stampa, Francis taught that there are non-Catholic saints and martyrs and even endorsed the idea that a Lutheran minister could be advanced to “canonization.”

He has taught that atheists and others can be saved without the faith by following what they consider to be good.

In his astounding Apostolic Exhortation, “Evangelii Gaudium,” which Francis, by the way addressed to the “universal Church” (51), he professes that the Jews have a valid covenant with God (247), contrary to the teaching of the Catholic Church.

Evangelii Gaudium

He professes that it’s admirable for Muslims to participate in daily Islamic prayers and religious services (252). He professes that non-Christians are justified by the grace of God (254), directly contrary to the Catholic profession of faith and Catholic dogma that only Christians, that is, those with the catholic faith can be justified. And, (254) of that document, Francis also speaks of non-Christian rites, signs and expressions, in other words, the false beliefs and wicked practices of non-Christian and pagan religions, as “God’s working” and things which “the Holy Spirit raises up.”

That, of course, is directly opposed to the profession of the Catholic faith, that false and non-Christian religions are the products of evil spirits.

In (255), Francis professes that Religious Freedom, whereby everyone has the right to promote any religious view in public, is to be viewed a fundamental human right, directly contrary to the Catholic profession of faith. He professes a false non-Catholic faith.

Many other examples could be given before and after his “election.” Furthermore, keep in mind that a profession of faith can be made not only by word, such as the words we’ve just cited from Francis, but also by deed.

Profession of faith by deed

St. Thomas Aquinas taught: “Now man can make profession of his inward faith, by deeds as well as by words: and in either profession, if he makes a false declaration he sins mortally.” (Summa Theologica, I-II; Q. 103, A. 4)

Concerning Francis’ profession in deed, he takes part in condemned Jewish worship, contrary to Catholic teaching, he takes part in non-Catholic worship. He even uses his “authority” to organize kosher meals and other aspects of condemned Jewish worship, so the Jews can observe the Mosaic laws contrary to the profession of the true faith.

Kosher Francis hosts Jewish leaders for kosher lunch and prays with them

In one such meeting in January 2014, Francis hosted Argentine Jewish leaders for a kosher lunch and joint prayer. Together Francis and the Jewish leaders intoned Psalm 133 in Hebrew, which says, “How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity.”

Francis thus professes in word and deed that Jews who reject the Son have unity with God the Father. The profession of the true faith is precisely the opposite. No one who denies the Son has salvation or unity with the Father. “No one who denies the Son has the Father.” 1 John 2:23.

“... whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.” 1 John 5:12.

So the answer to our question: “Does Francis profess the true faith?” - could not be more clear.

It’s a fact that Francis does not profess, state and display the true faith, but a false non-Catholic faith.

Francis displays a false non-Catholic faith

According to Catholic teaching, therefore, he cannot be counted among the members of the Church, for only those who are baptized and profess the true faith are to be considered members of the Church, as we covered earlier.

The significance and force of this argument should be apparent. It proves that Francis cannot be considered a member of the Catholic Church without even venturing into a discussion of whether he is personally guilty of heresy. We don’t need to go there although one can go there quite effectively if one chooses to.

Rather, we can prove that Francis must not be considered a member of the Catholic Church based on a simple recognition and observation of the content of his external profession of faith. Now, of course, the fact that Francis does not profess the true faith, but a false faith is connected to the fact that he is a heretic.

The reason he doesn’t profess the true faith is that he’s a heretic and an apostate, a fact which can be, and has been proven without any doubt. But, it’s not even necessary to venture into the territory of whether he is personally a heretic, to prove that he cannot be considered a member of the Catholic Church. The point is proven by a simple observation of the content of his external profession of faith and an observation of the content of the true faith.

Heretic greets heretic

In fact, many false traditionalists who decry the new religion and its new teachings, but accept Francis, make such an observation. They know there is a contradiction between the pre-Vatican II religion and the post-Vatican II on matters of faith. They compare the new teaching on matters of faith with the previous teaching, and they complain about the discontinuity.

Heretics of all colors proven in the external forum

They fail, however, to reach the conclusion Catholic teaching requires when confronted by a discontinuity between two professions of faith in the external forum. Someone who professes a false faith cannot be considered in the true Church with those who profess the true faith. To consider one who professes a false faith in the true Church with those who profess the true faith, is heresy. It denies the Church’s unity, a mark of the Church, a supernatural protection and promise given to us by Jesus Christ Himself.

For, by holding that one who professes a false faith, such as Francis, is to be considered in the true Church, one either contradicts the truth that all in the Church have the same faith, or one equates the profession of the true faith, for example, that non-Catholics need to join the Catholic Church, with the profession of a false faith, that is, Francis’ profession that non-Catholics don’t need to join the Catholic Church.

Moreover, once it’s clear that Francis cannot be counted among the members of the Church, the debate about whether he is the pope is over. Everything hinges on whether he is to be considered a member of the Catholic Church, for contrary to what you might read in a typically misleading and false traditionalist publication, the issue of whether someone outside the Church, for example, a heretic can hold the Papal Office is not an open question - it’s a settled issue.

As Pope Leo XIII taught in Satis Cognitum, #15, June, 1896: “No one, therefore, unless in communion with Peter can share in this authority, since it is absurd to imagine that he who is outside can command in the Church.” It’s absurd to maintain that someone outside the Church can command in the Church.

It’s therefore certain that someone who is outside the Church cannot be the pope, for the papacy is an office which, by Divine Law involves power to command. The fact that one outside the Church, a heretic, etc., cannot be the pope, is further confirmed by the dogma that the pope is the visible head of the Church, and you cannot be the head of the Church if you are not a member of it.

False traditionalists who obstinately teach that someone outside the Church, a heretic, a non-member etc., can be considered the pope are promoting that which is absurd, condemned and contrary to the explicit teaching of the magisterium. Therefore, the very observation that Francis professes a false faith ends the debate about whether he is to be considered pope. He is NOT!

This observation also applies to the previous Vatican II antipopes, of course; they profess a false faith as well. It would apply to anyone who endorses and promotes false ecumenism, such as all the Novus Ordo “Bishops” in communion with antipope Francis.

Novus Ordo promoting false ecumenism

As Pope Pius XI, in Mortalium Animos (# 2), Jan. 6, 1928, taught: to promote false ecumenism is to promote a false faith. Therefore, anyone who promotes false ecumenism cannot be considered in the Church, since that person does not profess the true faith.

The consequences of these facts are profound. They prove that the very recognition of Francis as the pope, is a recognition of his faith as true. Consider that deeply. As much as false traditionalists might complain about this conclusion, there is no escape from it.

Their typical tactic of accepting Francis but ignoring or dissenting from his profession of faith won’t work, for Francis is not simply committing theological mistakes while professing the true faith. No, he openly professes a false faith on issues of Catholic teaching and the basic profession of the true faith.

Thus, the very recognition of Francis as the pope, is a statement that the faith he professes is true. That means that all who obstinately consider Francis to be the pope in the face of the facts, necessarily do the following:

They confess that rejecting the conversion of non-Catholics, rejecting the conversion of Jews, rejecting the conversion of atheists, and rejecting the conversion of schismatics, IS THE TRUE FAITH.

They profess that the promotion of false ecumenism IS THE TRUE FAITH; they profess that teaching that Protestants and schismatics, who reject the Papacy and other Catholic dogmas, are in the Church of Christ, IS THE TRUE FAITH.

They profess that the endorsement of non-Catholics as “saints and martyrs” IS THE TRUE FAITH. They profess that supporting a Lutheran for “canonization” IS THE TRUE FAITH.

They profess that the public promotion of religious liberty as a fundamental human right, according to which false religions cannot be curtailed in the public expression of false beliefs, IS THE TRUE FAITH.

They profess that teaching non-Christians are “justified by the Grace of God,” IS THE TRUE FAITH.

They profess that the promotion of Islamic prayers and religious services as “admirable” IS THE TRUE FAITH.

They profess that considering the rites and beliefs of non-Christian religions to be the work of the Holy Ghost IS THE TRUE FAITH.

They profess that Jews can have the Father while rejecting the Son IS THE TRUE FAITH.

There’s no way around it, for if they say that the faith Francis professes is false, they are saying he is not the pope, for someone who professes a false faith cannot be considered the pope.

Hence, by stating that he is the pope they are saying that his profession of faith is true, and that is nothing short of diabolical! That’s why this issue is serious.

Conclusion: the heretic Francis - cannot be considered to be the pope!

It’s imperative for people to reject Francis as a heretical non-Catholic antipope, for by failing to do so, people are falling into the acceptance of heresy and apostasy and the identification of a false faith with true faith.

St. Malachy’s Prophecy of Popes and Antipopes

One of the most well known predictions in Catholic history is the prophecy of the Popes and Antipopes that is attributed to St. Malachy.

St. Malachy was a Catholic Bishop born in 1094 in Ireland. He died in the presence of his good friend, St. Bernard in 1148. St. Bernard said that St. Malachy foretold the day and hour of his own death. St. Malachy was canonized in 1190.

A reading for his feast day mentions that he was blessed with the gift of prophecy.

St. Malachy

According to the 1913 Catholic Encyclopedia, under the title of Prophecy, it says that St. Malachy was called to Rome in 1139 by Pope Innocent II. While in Rome it is reported that St. Malachy experienced a vision of future claimants to the papacy, until the second coming of Jesus Christ.

St. Bernard and St. Malachy

St. Malachy wrote 112 short Latin phrases describing all these future claimants to the Papacy giving titles to both Popes and Antipopes. The document was then reportedly placed in the Vatican secret archives and wasn’t discovered until 1556 by a Vatican Librarian. The document was first published 39 years later in 1595, by historian Arnold de Wyon, in a book called “Tree of Life.”

De Wyon was assisted in his translation of the document by Alfonso Chaconne, a well known scholar of medieval manuscripts. Chaconne was given the job of authenticating the document and making sure it wasn’t a forgery. After examining the document, Chaconne verified it as authentic.

1913 Catholic Encyclopedia

While God apparently showed St. Malachy the different men, who in the future would claim to be the leaders of the Catholic Church, He did not necessarily reveal to St. Malachy whether these future claimants to the Papacy were good or evil, and He did not reveal to him whether they were true Popes or Antipopes.

St. Malachy was simply shown the men, who until the end of human history, would present themselves to the world as the leaders of the Catholic Church. Furthermore, as humanity moved closer and closer to the end of the world, God wanted people in the last days to have some idea how close they were to the Second Coming of Christ.

The Vatican - the Papacy

St. Malachy’s descriptions of future claimants to the Papacy usually include at least one or more of the following things concerning the claimant: his coat of arms, his family’s coat of arms, his birth name or birth place, or cities in which he would live during his life.

St. Malachy also described major figures or events that would overshadow the reigns of some of the claimants to the Papacy.

As mentioned earlier, the prophecies of St. Malachy were published for the first time in 1595.

St. Malachy’s list of Popes before 1595

There is a controversy over St. Malachy’s pre 1595 predictions.

Many believe that since St. Malachy’s list was only publicly available for the first time in 1595, the predictions referring to pre 1595 claimants, constitute no proof of authenticity. Moreover, some believe that since St. Malachy’s prophecy wasn’t publicly released until hundreds of years after it was reportedly first made, doubt exists about the entire prophecy.

However, a good response to that objection can be found by considering a very important Biblical manuscript called “Codex Vaticanus.” Codex Vaticanus is considered to be the oldest surviving copy of an almost complete Bible.

St. Malachy’s prophecies first published in Lignum Vitae in 1595

It was originally produced in the late 4th century, but its whereabouts were uncertain for more than one thousand years until it was identified in the Vatican Library in the 15th century.

So, Codex Vaticanus, like St. Malachy’s document was discovered at the Vatican after being lost for an extremely long period of time, yet Biblical scholars generally accept Codex Vaticanus as authentic, despite its uncertain whereabouts for more than 1000 years after its original production, a far longer period of time than St. Malachy’s document was lost.

St. Malachy’s List of Popes before 1595

Nevertheless, since there is controversy over the St. Malachy prophecy before 1595, we will not consider any examples of his predictions that concern Papal claimants before 1595, but only those after 1595.

St. Malachy describes Pope Innocent X as “Joyfulness of the Cross.”

Pope Innocent X -
[1644 - 1655]

It is very interesting that Innocent X was finally elected Pope on the feast day of the Exultation of the Cross, after a long and difficult conclave.

St. Malachy describes Pope Pius VI as “Apostolic Wanderer.”

Pope Pius VI -
[1775 - 1799]

During Pius VI’s reign, he travelled to Germany to confer with Emperor Joseph II. In the last two years of his reign, he was forced by revolutionaries to flee Rome. After a very difficult journey over the Alps, he died in France. He was definitely a “Wanderer.”

St. Malachy describes Pope Pius VII as “Greedy Eagle.”

Pope Pius VII -
[1800 - 1823]

This Pope’s reign was overshadowed by Napoleon whose symbol was an eagle. Napoleon’s complete reign as Emperor took place during Pius VII’s reign as Pope. Napoleon and Pius VII were continually in conflict, Napoleon ordering that the Pope comply with his demands.

After Pius VII excommunicated Napoleon, he was kidnapped and imprisoned by Napoleon’s officers. Eventually Napoleon formed an agreement with Pius VII that weighed heavily in his own favour.

Pope Pius IX -
[1846 - 1878]

St. Malachy describes Pope Pius IX as “Cross from the Cross.”

Pius IX was the last Pope to govern the Papal States. He ended up a prisoner in the Vatican after the House of Savoy, whose coat of arms is a White Cross, reunited Italy and removed Pius IX from his control of the Papal States.

Pope Leo XIII -
[1878 - 1903]

St. Malachy describes Pope Leo XIII as “Light in the Sky.”

Pope Leo XIII’s coat of arms features a comet in the sky. Bishops of the Catholic Church create a coat of arms. Pope Leo XIII was made a bishop on February 19, 1843. That means that Leo XIII created his coat of arms which featured a comet in the sky, 35 years before he became Pope in 1878. He was thus identified with a light in the sky long before he became Pope, or knew that he would become Pope.

Pope Leo XIII

St. Malachy describes Pope Pius X as “Fire Burning.”

Pope Pius X -
[1903 - 1914]

Pius X’s reign saw the Russian/Japanese war, the Mexican Revolution, and the 1st and 2nd Balkan Wars. It was also at the end of his reign, that World War I began, which set Europe on fire.

St. Malachy describes Benedict XV as “Religion Laid Waste.”

Pope Benedict XV -
[1914 - 1922]

Benedict XV reigned during World War I and the Communist Revolution in Russia, which led to millions of Catholics being put to death. On p. 328, of his 1996 book, Memoirs, Mikhail Gorbachev said that the Soviet/Communist State laid waste to religion by carrying out “a wholesale war on religion.”

St. Malachy describes Antipope John XXIII as “Pastor and Sailor.”

Antipope John XXIII -
[1958 - 1963]

During his reign, John XXIII would frequently wear clothing featuring a large sailboat. Also, before being elected Antipope in 1958, John XXIII was the “Patriarch of Venice” from 1953 to 1958.

City of Sailors

St. Malachy describes Antipope Paul VI as “Flower of Flowers.”

Antipope Paul VI -
[1963 - 1978]

Interestingly, Paul VI happened to have three lily flowers on his coat of arms.

St. Malachy describes Antipope John Paul I as “From the Half Moon.”

John Paul I began his reign on August 26, 1978 when the moon appeared exactly half full.

Antipope John Paul I -
[1978 - 1978]

So he literally began his reign from the half moon. John Paul I also comes from the diocese of Belluno, which means “Beautiful Moon.”

St. Malachy describes Antipope John Paul II as “Of the Solar Eclipse.”

John Paul II was born on May 18, 1920, the day of a solar eclipse. On the day of John Paul II’s funeral, April 8, 2005, there was also an eclipse of the sun. This is a striking fulfillment of St. Malachy’s prophecy. In the apparitions of Our Lady of La Salette, France, September 19, 1846, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to two little children and said, “Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the Antichrist. … The Church will be in eclipse.”

Antipope John Paul II -
[1978 - 2005]

Our Lady predicted that outside a remnant of Catholics who will preserve the true faith, most people will not see or find real Catholicism because for one reason, the Church will seem to be dominated, blocked out or eclipsed by something.

That something was John Paul II. He was the eclipse of the Catholic Church.

Eclipse of the Sun

The predictions made by Our Lady at La Salette and Fatima concerning what would happen to the Catholic Church, are covered in detail in our video “The Third Secret of Fatima.”

According to St. Malachy, the final claimant to the Papacy is described as “Petrus Romanus” - Peter the Roman.

Peter the Roman

St. Malachy says about the last claimant, that, “In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit Peter the Roman, who will feed the sheep in many tribulations: and when these things are finished, the city of seven hills [Rome] will be destroyed, and the dreadful Judge will judge His people. The End.”

Malachy’s prophecy about to be fulfilled

Keep in mind that St. Malachy predicted both Popes and Antipopes, whoever would claim to be the Bishop of Rome.

Destruction of Rome commences

The reason St. Malachy called him Peter the Roman, is because St. Peter, as Bishop of Rome and the first pope, had the name Peter, and St. Malachy calls the last man who will claim to be the Bishop of Rome, by the same name, Peter; and since Francis, according to St. Malachy’s list is the final claimant to the Roman See, before the destruction of Rome, he calls him Peter the Roman.

Another reason St. Malachy called Francis ‘the Roman’ is that Francis has emphasized the title of ‘Bishop of Rome’ in a unique way.

Antipope Francis has generally avoided the title of ‘Pope’ and other titles associated with claimants to the Papacy.

Reluctant to use Papal title

The Official Vatican Directory lists a number of different titles for claimants to the Papacy, but Francis has rejected all these titles except the one title of ‘Bishop of Rome,’ which he specifically requested. Francis has stressed in a highly unusual way that he is merely acting as if his authority is limited locally to Rome.

In fact, in his very first words after his ‘election,’ Francis explicitly stated, that the reason for a conclave was ‘to give a Bishop to Rome.’

‘bishop’ of Rome

Francis is perhaps the only claimant in history who mentioned the title of ‘Bishop of Rome’ in his very first words to the world after his ‘election.’ He was therefore immediately identified with Rome or in a particular way as a Roman.

It is striking that in his initial appearances he repeatedly referred to himself as the ‘Bishop of Rome,’ rather than emphasizing his role as an authority figure in the ‘Universal Church.’

Official Vatican Directory

Also Francis was the first claimant in history to sign his name in Italian rather than Latin in the Vatican’s Official Directory. Italian is the language of modern Romans which Francis happens to speak perfectly, whereas Latin is the language of the Church throughout the world.

This is another example of Francis’ emphasis on a particular local or Roman role instead of a universal one.

Interestingly, Francis chose the name of the most well known Saint of Italy, St. Francis of Assisi. Assisi is only 2 hours from Rome.

St. Francis’ middle name
is Peter

During his life, St. Francis went to Rome, and St. Francis’ middle name and his father’s name happens to be Peter. St. Malachy also says that “Peter the Roman” will feed people during many tribulations.

It is very interesting that while antipope Francis doesn’t care if someone rejects Jesus Christ or the Catholic faith, he does claim to care about physically feeding people in need. On p. 129 of his 2010 book, Conversations with Jorge Bergoglio, Francis says the sin being committed in Argentina is failing to provide food and work for people. He says nothing about sins against God and God’s faith.

Conversations with
Jorge Bergoglio

Conversations with Jorge Bergoglio, p. 129. “It is a problem of sin. For four years Argentina has been living a sinful existence, because it has not taken responsibility for those who have no food or work.”

Feeding the people

If tribulations occurred in the world in which people were without food or other necessities, Francis would probably go to extremes to feed those people and would therefore fulfill what St. Malachy said, “He will feed the sheep in many tribulations.”

“Feeding the Poor”

On December 14th, 2013, La Stampa published an interview that antipope Francis gave to the journalist, Andrea Tornielli. It’s interesting that in the interview, Francis makes numerous references to how important it is to “feed people.” “With all the food that is left over and thrown away we could feed so many… we have enough food in the world to feed everyone.” For why the reason behind Francis’ determination to feed people is interesting, consider what St. Malachy said, “He will feed the sheep in many tribulations.”

Non-Catholics who believe in St. Malachy’s prophecies, yet reject the Roman Catholic Church, should deeply consider what St. Malachy says here. He refers to the Roman Church which everyone admits is the Roman Catholic Church, and he calls it “Holy.”

Malachy’s prophecy

If the Roman Catholic Church were a false Church, there would be no way that St. Malachy would describe it as “Holy,” and only God could have given St. Malachy the ability to make such incredible accurate predictions about the future.

God would not have given such incredible insights about future events to a believer and leader of a false religion.

What is also extremely interesting is that St. Malachy describes Rome being destroyed by fire at the end of Francis’ reign.

Destruction by fire

If correct, this fits perfectly with the prophecies in the Apocalypse about how Babylon/Rome is destroyed at the end of the world.

Rome is destroyed

Francis has been described in news headlines, as the “End of the World” Pope, or the man from the end of the world, because Argentina, the country he comes from, is geographically located, some would say, at the end of the world.

So if 1000 years from now, we were to look back at the complete list of Popes and Antipopes in history, Francis would be described as the one at “the end of the world.”

Destroyed by fire

Perhaps, in a way of unknowingly fulfilling prophecy, Francis made the following striking statement in his opening words to the people, after his “election” as Antipope, that is, during his very first address to the world from the balcony of St. Peters.

End of the world claimant to the Papacy

Francis said, “The other Cardinals went all the way to the end of the world to find him,” and then added, “Here we are.”

Translator of Francis’ address: “You know that the duty of the conclave was to give a bishop to Rome. My fellow Cardinals went and found one, all the way at the end of the world, but, here we are.”

“But here we are.” - The End.
