    MATTHEW 24:
    4 And Jesus answering, said to them: *Take heed that no man seduce you:
    5 For many will come in my name saying, I am Christ: and they will seduce many.

     
    2 CORINTHIANS 2:11
    That we may not be circumvented by Satan: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

    2 CORINTHIANS 11:14
    And no wonder: for Satan himself transformeth himself into an angel of light.

    2 THESSALONIANS 2:9
    Whose coming is according to the working of Satan, in all power, and signs, and lying wonders,

    APOCALYPSE 2:9
    I know thy tribulation and thy poverty, but thou art rich: and thou art blasphemed by those who say they are Jҽωs, and are not, but are the ѕуηαgσgυє of Satan.

    APOCALYPSE 3:9
    Behold, I will give of the ѕуηαgσgυє of Satan, who say they are Jҽωs, and are not, but do lie: Behold, I will make them to come and adore before thy feet: And they shall know, that I have loved thee.

  • Look up the legend surrounding the humble pretzel.  It is said that an Italian monk was making bread with only flour and water on account of the Lenten fast.  He shaped the bread so it resembled arms crossed in prayer, which was a common posture among early Christians.  The word pretzel itself refers to "little arms."  I won't speak to the pectoral cross but crossing arms in prayer isn't ipso facto masonic.

    2 Corinthians 4:3-4

    And if our gospel be also hid, it is hid to them that are lost, In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of unbelievers, that the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should not shine unto them.

    Yes the masons have hijacked a few Catholic symbols such as Christ’s age of 33 and the Rainbow.

  • Sola Ex Cathedra is every bit as much a heresy as Sola Scriptura
    1.)   Sola Ex Cathedra (Popes are only infallible when making
    an ex cathedra definition) is a heresy of semi-Trads.
    2.)   Sola Scriptura (only the Bible is infallible) is a heresy of Protestants.
     
    If the Popes could at times teach heresy, how would we know when they are teaching truth or error?  We would have to be the superior of the Pope to decide when he is teaching the truth and when he is teaching falsehood…that is a complete prideful delusion!
     
     
    OBJECTION # 1: Vatican I said the Pope is only infallible when speaking Ex Cathedra
     
    ANSWER # 1: While it is true that Ex Cathedra statements are infallible; it is absolutely NOT true that Ex Cathedra statements are the ONLY times Popes are infallible. Vatican I infallibly declares:
     
    The First Vatican Council  
    Dogmatic Constitution of Vatican I,Pastor Aeternus    
    Pope Pius IX, July 18, 1870 A.D.    
      
    “Indeed, their apostolic teaching was embraced by all the venerable fathers and reverenced and followed by all the holy orthodox doctors, for they knew very well that this see of St. Peter always remains unblemished by any error, in accordance with the divine promise of our Lord and Savior to the prince of his disciples: I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail; and when you have turned again, strengthen your brethren.    
      
    “This gift of truth and never-failing faith was therefore divinely conferred on Peter and his successors in this see so that they might discharge their exalted office for the salvation of all, and so that the whole flock of Christ might be kept away by them from the poisonous food of error and be nourished with the sustenance of heavenly doctrine.”    
     
    The First Vatican Council    
    Dogmatic Constitution on the Catholic Faith, Dei Filius    
    Pope Pius IX, 24 April 1870 A.D.    
      
    “Wherefore, by divine and Catholic faith all those things are to be believed which are contained in the word of God as found in Scripture and tradition, and which are proposed by the Church as matters to be believed as divinely revealed, whether by her solemn judgment or in her ordinary and universal magisterium.”   
      
    Humani Generis     
    On Modern Errors     
    Pope Pius XII – August 12, 1950     
      
    Paragraph 20: “Nor must it be thought that what is expounded in Encyclical Letters does not of itself demand consent, since in writing such Letters the Popes do not exercise the supreme power of their Teaching Authority. For these matters are taught with the ordinary teaching authority (magisterio ordinario), of which it is true to say: “He who heareth you, heareth me…”  (Lk. 10:16)   
     
    Notice above in Humani Generis, Pope Pius XII infallibly teaches that    
     
    • Encyclical Letters are the Ordinary Magisterium, "of which it is true to say: “He who heareth you, heareth me…”  (Lk. 10:16)    
    • So if we admit that Christ is infallible   
    • Then we must admit that Encyclicals and the Ordinary Magisterium are infallible.  
     
    OBJECTION # 2: The Vatican II Popes must be true Popes because otherwise Christ’s promise of always being with us would be false.
    ANSWER # 2: Actually, the exact opposite is true, the Vatican II Popes must be anti-popes because Christ promised to ALWAYS be with His Church and that His Church would never teach any error or heresy.
    How could you square: "I will be with you all days." with the supposed fact that Roncalli thru Bergoglio ARE true popes...then Christ's promised would have failed, then He would have allowed His Church to fail, He would have allowed His Church to be a vehicle of error and damnation.
     
    But on the other hand, if Roncalli thru Bergoglio are antipopes, then the Church is still indefectible, it simply hasn't had a valid pope since 1958...but at least the Church and a true Pope wouldn't be propagators of error and heresy!
     
    To put it another way, it is possible to have antipopes and interregnums (https://cmri.org/articles-on-the-traditional-catholic-faith/fr-edmund-james-oreilly-s-j-on-the-idea-of-a-long-term-vacancy-of-the-holy-see/), but it is not possible to have valid popes who teach heresy in Ecumenical Councils and Encyclicals.
     
    Here is another article that answers this objection:  
     
    OBJECTION: Vatican Council I taught that St. Peter has perpetual successors; therefore, long vacancies in the See of Peter are not possible.
     
    ANSWER: Nowhere does the Church determine how long a vacancy may exist in the See of Peter. Between the death of Pope Clement IV (November 29, 1268) and the ɛƖɛctıon of Pope Gregory X (September 1, 1271), there was an interregnum of nearly three years. During the Western Schism, there were three claimants to the See of Peter; theologians teach that even if none of them were pope, that would not be against the promise of Christ or the teaching of perpetual successors.
     
    Proof:
    A. Institutiones Theologiae Fundamentalis [1929], Rev. A. Dorsch
    — “The Church therefore is a society that is essentially monarchical. But this does not prevent the Church, for a short time after the death of a pope, or even for many years, from remaining deprived of her head [vel etiam per plures annos capite suo destituta manet].”
    B. The Relations of the Church to Society [1882], Fr. Edward J. O’Reilly, S.J.
    — “In the first place, there was all throughout from the death of Gregory XI in 1378, a Pope—with the exception, of course, of the intervals between deaths and ɛƖɛctıons to fill up the vacancies thereby created. There was, I say, at every given time a Pope, really invested with the dignity of Vicar of Christ and Head of the Church, whatever opinions might exist among many as to his genuineness; not that an interregnum covering the whole period would have been impossible or inconsistent with the promises of Christ, for this is by no means manifest, but that, as a matter of fact, there was not such an interregnum.”
    C. The Catholic’s Ready Answer [1915], Rev. M. P. Hill, S.J.
    — “If during the entire schism (nearly 40 years) there had been no Pope at all—that would not prove that the office and authority of Peter was not transmitted to the next Pope duly elected.”
    D. The Defense of the Catholic Church [1927] Fr. Francis X. Doyle, S.J.
    — “The Church is a visible society with a visible Ruler. If there can be any doubt about who that visible Ruler is, he is not visible, and hence, where there is any doubt about whether a person has been legitimately elected Pope, that doubt must be removed before he can become the visible head of Christ’s Church. Blessed Bellarmine, S.J., says: ‘A doubtful Pope must be considered as not Pope’; and Suarez, S.J., says: ‘At the time of the Council of Constance there were three men claiming to be Pope…. Hence, it could have been that not one of them was the true Pope, and in that case, there was no Pope at all….’”
    https://cmri.org/articles-on-the-traditional-catholic-faith/answering-the-objections-to-the-sedevacantist-position/
    TAKE A STEP BACK AND CONSIDER:
     
    If the Popes could at times teach heresy, how would we know when they are teaching truth or error?  We would have to be the superior of the Pope to decide when he is teaching the truth and when he is teaching falsehood…that is a complete prideful delusion!
     
    Just think for a moment and you will realize how absurd it is to maintain that Roncalli thru Bergoglio are true Popes.
     
    1.)   If Popes could teach error and heresy in Encyclicals and Ecumenical Councils then why would we believe in the Trinity, maybe the Council of Nicea got that wrong?
     
    2.)   If true Popes could teach error and heresy in "Dogmatic Constitutions" of Ecumenical Councils, why would we believe in Purgatory or that there are 7 Sacraments, maybe the Council of Trent just got those things wrong?
     
    3.)   If true Popes could teach error and heresy in their Ordinary Magisterium as long as it isn't an ex cathedra statement, why would we believe that contraception is evil, that is not an Ex Cathedra statement, that is just taught in simple Encyclicals, maybe the Casti Connubbii
     
    4.)   If true Popes could teach error and heresy in their Ordinary Magisterium as long as it isn't an ex cathedra statement, why would we believe that any of the Saints, like St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Alphonsus Ligouri, St. Benedict, St. Francis of Assisi, St. Anthony Padua, St. Theresa of Avila, St. Magaret Mary Alocoque, etc. are real Saints, if the Church could error in Canonizations maybe the above Saints are just as fake as "St. John XXIII," "St. Paul VI" and "St. John Paul?"
     
    5.)   If true Popes could promulgate, approve and decree evil liturgies like the Novus Ordo, why would we go to the Traditional Latin Mass...maybe that is an evil liturgy approved and promulgated by Pope Pius V?
     
    OBJECTION # 3: We need to be so grateful for ____(fill in the blank: the SSPX, the Resistance, the FSSP, etc.) they give us the Sacraments and preach the Faith in its entirety to us!
     
    ANSWER # 3:  Do they preach that Ecumenical Councils are ALWAYS infallible and that Encyclicals are ALWAYS infallible?
     
    If not, then that is not the Faith in its entirety, it is a betrayal of some essential dogmas of the faith:
     
    What Does the Magisterium Teach?
    Humility is the path both to being a Catholic & to saving our soul.
     
    1.)   Heretics pick & choose which Magisterial teachings they accept & which they reject.
    2.)   Heretics judge for themselves (aka private judgment), they think they know better than the Magisterium.
    3.)   Heretics make themselves into their own popes, deciding which Magisterial teachings are true and which are false.
     
    1.)   Catholics do NOT pick & choose which Magisterial teachings to accept & which to reject, they MUST simply accept them all.
    2.)   Catholics do NOT judge for themselves (aka private judgment), they do NOT think they know better than the Magisterium.
    3.)   Catholics do NOT make themselves into their own popes, deciding which Magisterial teachings are true and which are false.
     
    Can you rebut the following by using infallible quotes from the Magisterium?  If not, then shouldn't we believe exactly what Vatican I, Humani Generis and Mortalium Animos teach?   
     
    1.)   You, nor I, nor the SSPX, nor the Resistance, nor Archbishop Lefebvre are infallible. 
    2.)   The Catholic Church is infallible. 
    3.)   The “…See of St. Peter ALWAYS remains unblemished by any error.” (Vatican I) It was given a “gift of truth and NEVER failing faith.” 
    4.)   The Solemn Magisterium is infallible. (Vatican I)
    5.)   The Ordinary Magisterium is infallible. (Humani Generis)
    6.)   Encyclicals and Ecumenical Councils are infallible.
    7.)   “…the power to teach, govern and administer the Sacraments, derive their supernatural efficacy and force of the building up of the body of Christ from the fact that Jesus Christ, hanging on the Cross, opened up to His Church the fountain of those divine gifts, which prevent her from ever teaching false doctrine.” (Mystici Corporis Christi) 
    8.)   Vatican II is heretical and countless subsequent Encyclicals of the V2 popes are heretical, (http://www.holyromancatholicchurch.org/heresies.html), therefore it is not possible for Roncalli thru Bergoglio to be Popes, because Vatican I infallibly teaches: 
     
    The First Vatican Council  
    Dogmatic Constitution of Vatican I,Pastor Aeternus    
    Pope Pius IX, July 18, 1870 A.D.    
      
    “Indeed, their apostolic teaching was embraced by all the venerable fathers and reverenced and followed by all the holy orthodox doctors, for they knew very well that this see of St. Peter always remains unblemished by any error, in accordance with the divine promise of our Lord and Savior to the prince of his disciples: I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail; and when you have turned again, strengthen your brethren.    
      
    “This gift of truth and never-failing faith was therefore divinely conferred on Peter and his successors in this see so that they might discharge their exalted office for the salvation of all, and so that the whole flock of Christ might be kept away by them from the poisonous food of error and be nourished with the sustenance of heavenly doctrine.”    
     
    The First Vatican Council    
    Dogmatic Constitution on the Catholic Faith, Dei Filius    
    Pope Pius IX, 24 April 1870 A.D.    
      
    “Wherefore, by divine and Catholic faith all those things are to be believed which are contained in the word of God as found in Scripture and tradition, and which are proposed by the Church as matters to be believed as divinely revealed, whether by her solemn judgment or in her ordinary and universal magisterium.”   
      
    Humani Generis     
    On Modern Errors     
    Pope Pius XII – August 12, 1950     
      
    Paragraph 20: “Nor must it be thought that what is expounded in Encyclical Letters does not of itself demand consent, since in writing such Letters the Popes do not exercise the supreme power of their Teaching Authority. For these matters are taught with the ordinary teaching authority (magisterio ordinario), of which it is true to say: “He who heareth you, heareth me…”  (Lk. 10:16)   
     
    Notice above in Humani Generis, Pope Pius XII infallibly teaches that    
     
    • Encyclical Letters are the Ordinary Magisterium, "of which it is true to say: “He who heareth you, heareth me…”  (Lk. 10:16)    
    • So if we admit that Christ is infallible   
    • Then we must admit that Encyclicals and the Ordinary Magisterium are infallible.  
     
    Mortalium Animos, Encyclical by Pope Pius XI, 1928  
     
    “The Magisterium of the Church (“Ecclesia Magisterium”) which in the divine wisdom was constituted on earth in order that revealed doctrines might remain intact forever, and that they might be brought with ease and security to the knowledge of men, … is daily exercised [cotidie exerceturthrough the Roman Pontiff and the Bishops who are in communion with him.” (Pius XI, Mortalium Animos, 1928)  
      
    Note Well: The Teaching Authority (Magisterium) of the Church is exercised every day…not just in extraordinary circumstances, so there is no way to maintain that Vatican II and 62 years worth of Encyclicals and Catechisms from 1958-2020 weren’t the Magisterium of the Church…the Church’s Magisterium is incapable of teaching heresies…thus it is proof positive that John XXIII – Francis are not now/have never been, true Popes.  
     
    Pope Pius XII, Mystici Corporis Christi, June 29, 1943:  
     
    22. Actually only those are to be included as members of the Church who have been baptized and profess the true faith, and who have not been so unfortunate as to separate themselves from the unity of the Body, or been excluded by legitimate authority for grave faults committed. “For in one spirit” says the Apostle, “were we all baptized into one Body, whether Jews or Gentiles, whether bond or free.” 17 As therefore in the true Christian community there is only one Body, one Spirit, one Lord, and one Baptism, so there can be only one faith. 18 And therefore if a man refuse to hear the Church let him be considered — so the Lord commands — as a heathen and a publican19 It follows that those are divided in faith or government cannot be living in the unity of such a Body, nor can they be living the life of its one Divine Spirit.  
     
    23. Nor must one imagine that the Body of the Church, just because it bears the name of Christ, is made up during the days of its earthly pilgrimage only of members conspicuous for their holiness, or that it consists only of those whom God has predestined to eternal happiness. it is owing to the Savior’s infinite mercy that place is allowed in His Mystical Body here below for those whom, of old, He did not exclude from the banquet. For not every offense, 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.  
     
    31. Just as at the first moment of the Incarnation the Son of the Eternal Father adorned with the fullness of the Holy Spirit the human nature which was substantially united to Him, that it might be a fitting instrument of the Divinity in the sanguinary work of the Redemption, so at the hour of His precious death He willed that His Church should be enriched with the abundant gifts of the Paraclete in order that in dispensing the divine fruits of the Redemption she might be, for the Incarnate Word, a powerful instrument that would never fail. For both the juridical mission of the Church, and the power to teach, govern and administer the Sacraments, derive their supernatural efficacy and force of the building up of the body of Christ from the fact that Jesus Christ, hanging on the Cross, opened up to His Church the fountain of those divine gifts, which prevent her from ever teaching false doctrine and enable her to rule them for the salvation of their souls through divinely enlightened pastors and to bestow on them an abundance of heavenly graces.

    And yet you point out the errors of the post-conciliar popes yourself. And you are not the superior of the pope, I take it. And yet you are taking it upon yourself to point out the errors. How would anyone have ever known that the post-conciliar popes have taught error, if no one is allowed to question a true pope? Someone had to first raise a concern about the errors of the post-conciliar popes in order for a problem to even be addressed. But, according to you, we can NEVER EVER question a true pope. Not ever. So in reality, no one should have ever dared to question the post-conciliar popes (or any pope) in the first place, correct?

  • We are to correct these Popes.  
    Pope Francis was never taught the true faith.  
    He was brain washed by liberals.

    There are lots of disturbing things about the V2 papal claimaints.

    Wojtyla walked around with this almost grotesque crozier that some people acquainted with the subject say closely resembles a Satanic "bent/broken cross".  He also regularly appeared with upside-down crosses.  Sure, the explanation if that of St Peter, but to anyone with Catholic sensibilities it suggests Satanism.

    Look at the grotesque artwork at the Vatican, especially in the Paul VI Audience Hall (it looks like hell's gates opening).  Montini also wore the Masonic "ephod of Caiaphas" and his mother's grave has Masonic symbols on it.

    Teachings of Francis I
    Scripture or Past Church Teaching
     
     
    Atheism
     
    On Heaven and Earth2, pp. 12-13: “I do not approach the relationship in order to proselytize, or convert the atheist; I respect him… nor 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."
     
    "If any one deny the one true God, Creator and Lord of all things visible and invisible, let him be anathema" (Conc. Vatican., Sess. III, "De fide", can. i).
     
    "If anyone shall have said that the one true God, our Creator and our Lord, cannot be known with certitude by those things which have been made, by the natural light of human reason: let him be anathema" (First Vatican Council, Sess III, can. 2/1: Denz. 1806; cf. D. 1785).
     
    And to you who are troubled, rest with us when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven, with the angels of his power, in a flame of fire, giving vengeance to them who know not God, and who obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, who shall suffer eternal punishment in destruction, from the face of the Lord, and from the glory of his power.” II Thessalonians I: 7-9
     
    Francis I response to open letter3 published Sep 2013: “First of all, you ask if the God of the 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.
     
    "...faith is the beginning of human salvation, the foundation, and the root of all Justification; without which it is impossible to please God..." Council of Trent, Chapter VIII

    Interview with the Italian newspaper La Repubblica1, September 24, 2013: “I believe in God, not in a Catholic God, there is no Catholic God, there is God and I believe in Jesus Christ, his incarnation. Jesus is my teacher and my pastor, but God, the Father, Abba, is the light and the Creator. This is my Being.”
     
    Comment: Our Catholic God is the Trinity, which is different from the Gods professed by non-Christians:
     
    "the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God, and yet there are not three Gods but one God." Athanasian Creed
     
    “Q. 1400. Name some of the more essential religious truths we must know and believe. 2.(2) That in God there are three Divine Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, and these Divine Persons are called the Blessed Trinity.” Baltimore Catechism

    Capital Punishment (The Death Penalty)
     
    Letter to the President of the International Commission against the death penalty9, March 20, 2015: "Today capital punishment is unacceptable, however serious the condemned’s crime may have been. It is an offence to the inviolability of life and to the dignity of the human person which contradicts God’s plan for man and for society and his merciful justice, and it fails to conform to any just purpose of punishment.".....
     “All Christians and men of good will are thus called today to fight not only for the abolition of the death penalty, whether legal or illegal, and in all its forms, but also in order to improve prison conditions, with respect for the human dignity of the people deprived of their freedom

     
     
     
    To participants in the meeting promoted by the pontifical Council for promoting the new evangelization24, Oct 11, 2017:  “It must be clearly stated that the death penalty is an inhumane measure that, regardless of how it is carried out, abases human dignity. It is per se contrary to the Gospel…"  L’Osservatore Romano, October 13, 2017, pp. 7,11
     
    The same divine authority that forbids the killing of a human being establishes certain exceptions, as when God authorizes killing by a general law or when He gives an explicit commission to an individual for a limited time. The agent who executes the killing does not commit homicide; he is an instrument as is the sword with which he cuts. Therefore, it is in no way contrary to the commandment, 'Thou shalt not kill' to wage war at God's bidding, or for the representatives of public authority to put criminals to death, according to the law, that is, the will of the most just reason” St. Augustine, The City of God, Book 1, chapter 21
     
    Therefore if a man be dangerous and infectious to the community, on account of some sin, it is praiseworthy and healthful that he be killed in order to safeguard the common good, since "a little leaven corrupteth the whole lump” (1 Cor. 5:6)” St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica, Whether It Is Lawful to Kill Sinners?
     
    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” Pius XII, Address to the First International Congress of Histopathology of the Nervous System, 14 Sep 1952, XIV, 328
     
    "The infliction of capital punishment is not contrary to the teaching of the Catholic Church, and the power of the State to visit upon culprits the penalty of death derives much authority from revelation and from the writings of theologians” Catholic Encyclopedia, Capital Punishment

    Cohabitation / Concubinage
     
    Address to the Diocese of Rome’s Pastoral Congress, Q&A Session14, Jun 16, 2016: “They prefer to cohabitate, and this is a challenge, a task. Not to ask ‘why don’t you marry?’ No, to accompany, to wait, and to help them to mature, help fidelity to mature.”........ “I’ve seen a lot of fidelity in these cohabitations, and I am sure that this is a real marriage, they have the grace of a real marriage because of their fidelity.”
     
    “It is a grievous sin for unmarried men to have concubines ...Wherefore, the holy Synod, that it may by suitable remedies provide against this exceeding evil, ordains that these concubinaries, whether unmarried or married, of whatsoever state, dignity, and condition they may be, if, after having been three times admonished on this subject by the Ordinary, even ex officio, they shall not have put away their concubines, and have separated themselves from all connexion with them, they shall be smitten with excommunication; from which they shall not be absolved until they have really obeyed the admonition given them.” Council of Trent, Ch. VIII, Concubinage is severely punished
     
    “13. But in all these affairs, one of your aims should be to instill in the faithful a greater aversion for sins which scandalize others; your priests should share this aim. You are aware of the increase in the number of those who sin in a scandalous manner: those who blaspheme the heavenly saints and the holy name of God as well; those who live in concubinage.....So, make the faithful consider the seriousness of sins of this kind and the heavy penalties for them, both for the guilt of the sin itself and for the spiritual danger in which they place their brothers by the infection of their bad example. For it is written: "Woe to the world because of scandals . . . Woe to that man by whom the scandal comes!" Pope Pius IX, On the Church in the Pontifical States, December 8, 1849
     
    "The scandal of concubinage is removed by marriage, which should be made known to those who were scandalized, either by the pastor or by the parties themselves." Canon Law 1043
     
    "Hence if both parties intended and expressed the intention in some way or other to enter upon a mere Concubinage, there would be no marriage." Canon Law 1082
     
    "If a marriage is found invalid, as, for instance, among the Gallas, where slaves contract a contubernium or legalized concubinage, the parties must be separated until they are lawfully married" Canon Law 1084
     
    "Therefore concubinage must be given up because incompatible with Christian morals" Canon Law 1124

    ƈσmmυɳιsm
     
    Conversations with Jorge Bergoglio4, 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…
     
    "See to it, Venerable Brethren, that the Faithful do not allow themselves to be deceived! ƈσmmυɳιsm is intrinsically wrong, and no one who would save Christian civilization may collaborate with it in any undertaking whatsoever. Those who permit themselves to be deceived into lending their aid towards the triumph of ƈσmmυɳιsm in their own country, will be the first to fall victims of their error. And the greater the antiquity and grandeur of the Christian civilization in the regions where ƈσmmυɳιsm successfully penetrates, so much more devastating will be the hatred displayed by the godless" Encyclical On Atheistic ƈσmmυɳιsm by Pope Pius XI, 1937
     
    "To this goal also tends the unspeakable doctrine of ƈσmmυɳιsm, as it is called, a doctrine most opposed to the very natural law. For if this doctrine were accepted, the complete destruction of everyone's laws, government, property, and even of human society itself would follow." Encyclical On Faith and Religion by Pope Pius IX, 1846

    Contraception
     
    In-flight interview from Mexico15, Feb 17, 2016: “The great Paul VI, in a difficult situation in Africa, permitted nuns to use a form of artificial contraceptives in cases of rape.....On the other hand, avoiding pregnancy is not an absolute evil. In certain cases, as in this one (the Zika virus outbreak), or in the one I mentioned of Blessed Paul VI, it was clear.”
     
    "But no reason, however grave, may be put forward by which anything intrinsically against nature may become conformable to nature and morally good. Since, therefore, the conjugal act is destined primarily by nature for the begetting of children, those who in exercising it deliberately frustrate its natural power and purpose sin against nature and commit a deed which is shameful and intrinsically vicious."
    "...any use whatsoever of matrimony exercised in such a way that the act is deliberately frustrated in its natural power to generate life is an offense against the law of God and of nature, and those who indulge in such are branded with the guilt of a grave sin."
    "...No difficulty can arise that justifies the putting aside of the law of God which forbids all acts intrinsically evil." Pope Pius XI, Encyclical On Christian Marriage, Dec 31, 1930
     
    "A negative precept of natural law which prohibits a thing intrinsically evil can never be lawfully transgressed not even under the influence of the fear of death, (Lib. I, tr. ii, c. iv, dub. 2, n. 1) So that it is not lawful to do a thing which is wrong in itself, even to escape death" Catholic Encyclopedia, Hermann Busembaum

    Conversion/Proselytizing
     
    Church of the Assumption, Tbilisi, Georgia16, Oct 1, 2016: “Never fight! Let the theologians study the abstract realities of theology. But what should I do with a friend, neighbour, an Orthodox person? Be open, be a friend. ‘But should I make efforts to convert him or her?’ There is a very grave sin against ecumenism: proselytism. We should never proselytize the Orthodox!” L’ Osservatore Romano, October 7, 2016, p. 11
     
    Comment: If proselytizing is a grave sin, why did all of the Catholic missionaries throughout the history of the Church dedicate their lives to it?
     
    "… St. Francis De Sales had volunteered to re-evangelize the Chablais, a region in France south of Geneva consisting of some 72,000 souls, almost all of whom were now Calvinists, since their ancestors had succumbed to Protestantism 60 years before… St. Francis' first few months saw mostly failure, as he spent a very cold winter tramping over the countryside, receiving a frigid welcome and sometimes sleeping in hay lofts at night. So he resorted to writing pamphlets - which he posted on walls and slipped under doors. By this method he was able to reach the souls he was after, such that at the end of 4 years, almost the entire population of 72,000 had returned to the ancient Catholic Faith." The Catholic Controversy, St. Francis De Sales
     
    Discourse to Priests, Men and Women Religious, Seminarians21 Sep 9, 2017: “On one of my trips, World Youth Day in Poland [Krakow 2016], during a lunch with 15 young people and the Archbishop, one of them asked me: ‘What can I tell my young friend who is an atheist, who does not believe, what reasoning can I use?’. And it struck me how to reply: ‘Look, the last thing you must do is say anything’. He just stared at me.” L’Osservatore Romano, Sep 22, 2017, p. 10
     
    "Having protected their persons (the Jҽωs), St. Vincent now proceeded to the salvation of their souls. He preached to them, held controversial meetings with the most learned of them, and converted them by the thousand. In 1391, he converted 7,000 Jҽωs in Valencia alone, and 10,000 more throughout the kingdom." The Angel of the Judgment - A Life of St. Vincent Ferrer (imprimatur 1953)

    Ecumenism & Religious Freedom
     
    Address in St. Peter's Square5, 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.
     
    General Audience with representatives of the world’s various religions11, Oct 28, 2015: "the Church regards with esteem the believers of all religions, appreciating their spiritual and moral commitment…Now, to conclude this Audience, I invite everyone, each one on his or her own, to pray in silence. May each one do so according to his or her own religious tradition.”
    L’ Osservatore Romano, October 30, 2015, pp. 3-4
    "The Catholic Church is alone in keeping the true worship. This is the fount of truth, this the house of Faith, this the temple of God: if any man enter not here, or if any man go forth from it, he is a stranger to the hope of life and salvation.” Encyclical "Mortalium Animos" (On Religious Unity), by Pope Pius XI in 1928
     
    "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 God and 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." Encyclical "Mortalium Animos" (On Religious Unity), by Pope Pius XI in 1928
     
    Evangelii Gaudium6, November, 2013: “Non-Christians, 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

    Address to the representatives of the Yazidi community23, Jan 24, 2018: “Every person has the right to profess his or her own religious creed freely and without constraint…” L’ Osservatore Romano, January 26, 2018, p. 1
    "Now We consider another abundant source of the evils with which the Church is afflicted at present: indifferentism. This perverse opinion is spread on all sides by the fɾαυd of the wicked who claim that it is possible to obtain the eternal salvation of the soul by the profession of any kind of religion, as long as morality is maintained. Surely, in so clear a matter, you will drive this dєαdlу error far from the people committed to your care. With the admonition of the apostle that "there is one God, one faith, one baptism"."

    Vatican radio message8, May 24, 2015: “I feel like saying something that may sound controversial, or even heretical, perhaps. But there is someone who “knows” that, despite our differences, we are one. It is he who is persecuting us. It is he who is persecuting Christians today, he who is anointing us with (the blood of) martyrdom. He knows that Christians are disciples of Christ: that they are one, that they are brothers! He doesn’t care if they are Evangelicals, or Orthodox, Lutherans, Catholics or Apostolic…he doesn’t care! They are Christians.
     
    “…because the preceding errors and many others are contained in the books or writings of Martin Luther, we likewise condemn, reprobate, and reject completely the books and all the writings and sermons of the said Martin, whether in Latin or any other language, containing the said errors or any one of them; and we wish them to be regarded as utterly condemned, reprobated, and rejected. We forbid each and every one of the faithful of either sex, in virtue of holy obedience and under the above penalties to be incurred automatically, to read, assert, preach, praise, print, publish, or defend them. They will incur these penalties if they presume to uphold them in any way, personally or through another or others, directly or indirectly, tacitly or explicitly, publicly or occultly, either in their own homes or in other public or private places.” Condemning the Errors of Martin Luther (Exsurge Domine), Pope Leo X, June 15, 1520

    Evolution of Doctrine
     
    To participants in the meeting promoted by the pontifical Council for promoting the new evangelization24, Oct 11, 2017: “Doctrine cannot be preserved without allowing it to develop, nor can it be tied to an interpretation that is rigid and immutable without demeaning the working of the Holy Spirit.
    L’ Osservatore Romano, October 13, 2017, pp. 7,11
     
    I sincerely hold that the doctrine of faith was handed down to us from the apostles through the orthodox Fathers in exactly the same meaning and always in the same purport. Therefore, I entirely reject the heretical misrepresentation that dogmas evolve and change from one meaning to another different from the one which the Church held previously.” Pope St. Pius X, Oath against Modernism
     
    "Nor do We merely desire that Catholics should shrink from the errors of Modernism, but also from the tendencies or what is called the spirit of Modernism. Those who are infected by that spirit develop a keen dislike for all that savours of antiquity and become eager searchers after novelties in everything: in the way in which they carry out religious functions, in the ruling of Catholic institutions, and even in private exercises of piety. Therefore it is Our will that the law of our forefathers should still be held sacred: "Let there be no innovation; keep to what has been handed down."

    False Gods
     
    In 2012, Cardinal Bergoglio held an interreligious prayer meeting in the Cathedral of Buenos Aires with the leaders of false religions including Judaism and Protestant sects. In this prayer meeting he allowed the members of these false religions to pray aloud to their false gods in the Cathedral. Bergoglio has been known to organize other similar meetings (similar to his two predecessors) that are well documented and photographed in the news.
    "First Commandment of God: I am the Lord thy God, thou shall not have strange gods before Me"
     
    Q: What else does the First Commandment forbid?
    A: The First Commandment also forbids all dealings with the devil, and all association with anti-Christian sects.
     The Catechism of Saint Pius X, The First Commandment

     
    When it is said: Thou shalt not have strange gods before me, it is equivalent to saying: Thou shalt worship me the true God; thou shalt not worship strange gods.” The Catechism of Trent, The First Commandment
     
    “As the true God can tolerate no strange gods, the true Church of Christ can tolerate no strange Churches beside herself, or, what amounts to the same, she can recognize none as theoretically justified.” Catholic Encyclopedia, Religious Toleration

There is no hell, there is the disappearance of sinful souls.

    Islam
     
    Evangelii Gaudium6, November, 2013: “We must never forget that they [the Moslems] ‘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’.
     
    Address to the President of Religious Affairs in Turkey and Muslim and Christian political and religious leaders12, Nov 28, 2014: "We, Muslims and Christians, are the bearers of spiritual treasures of inestimable worth. Among these we recognize some shared elements, though lived according to the traditions of each, such as the adoration of the All-Merciful God, reference to the Patriarch Abraham, prayer, almsgiving, fasting… elements which, when lived sincerely, can transform life and provide a sure foundation for dignity and fraternity."
     
    Comment: Catholics and Muslims do not adore the same God (Catholics adore the Blessed Trinity):

    "Speaking generally, the faithful are forbidden to take part in any religious rites, considered as such, of pagans, Mohammedans, or Jҽωs, and all the more to practice them through a kind of survival of their primitive superstitions.

    Comment: How can Catholics commemorate one of the greatest disasters ever to befall the Church?
     
    "The Reformation destroyed the unity of faith and ecclesiastical organization of the Christian peoples of Europe, cut many millions off from the true Catholic Church, and robbed them of the greatest portion of the salutary means for the cultivation and maintenance of the supernatural life. Incalculable harm was thereby wrought from the religious standpoint. The false fundamental doctrine of justification by faith alone, taught by the Reformers, produced a lamentable shallowness in religious life. Zeal for good works disappeared, the asceticism which the Church had practised from her foundation was despised, charitable and ecclesiastical objects were no longer properly cultivated, supernatural interests fell into the background, and naturalistic aspirations aiming at the purely mundane, became widespread. The denial of the Divinely instituted authority of the Church, both as regards doctrine and ecclesiastical government, opened wide the door to every eccentricity, gave rise to the endless division into sects and the never-ending disputes characteristic of Protestantism, and could not but lead to the complete unbelief which necessarily arises from the Protestant principles..."

    Sacrament of Confession
     
    Vatican radio7 June 15, 2013: “True reconciliation means that God in Christ took on our sins and He became the sinner for us.  When we go to Confession, for example, it isn’t that we say our sin and God forgives us.  No, not that! We look for Jesus Christ and say:  ‘This is your sin, and I will sin again‘.  And Jesus likes that, because it was his mission:  to become the sinner for us, to liberate us.
     
    In the Sacrament of Penance the repentant Christian confesses his sins to a duly authorized priest, who, standing in the place of God, pronounces the absolution by means of which they are forgiven.” The Catechism Explained (Spirago-Clarke, 1899), Sacrament of Penance
     
    Q: How many conditions are necessary to make a good confession?
    A: To make a good confession five things are necessary: (1) Examination of conscience; (2) Sorrow for having offended God; (3) A resolution of sinning no more; (4) Confession of our sins; (5) Satisfaction or penance” Catechism of Saint Pius X, The Sacrament of Penance

    Sacrament of Marriage
     
    Address to the Diocese of Rome’s Pastoral Congress, Q&A Session14, Jun 16, 2016: "....the great majority of our sacramental marriages are null. Because they say ‘yes, for the rest of my life!’ but they don’t know what they are saying. Because they have a different culture. They say it, they have good will, but they don’t know.”

    On Heaven and Earth2, p. 114: Concerning same-sex marriage: “Religion has the right to give an opinion as long as it is in service to the people.” “The religious minister does not have the right to force anything on anyone’s private life. If God, in creation, ran the risk of making us free, who am I to get involved? We condemn spiritual harassment that takes place when a minister imposes directives, conduct, and demands in such a way that it takes away the freedom of the other person. God left the freedom to sin in our hands.” He later adds: “I insist that our opinion about the marriage between two people of the same sex is not based on religion, but rather on anthropology.
     
    "Q: Which are the sins that are said to cry to God for vengeance?

    Sex Education
     
    Conversations with Jorge Bergoglio4, p. 111: “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.
     
    Another very grave danger is that naturalism which nowadays invades the field of education in that most delicate matter of purity of morals. Far too common is the error of those who with dangerous assurance and under an ugly term propagate a so-called sex-education, falsely imagining they can forearm youths against the dangers of sensuality by means purely natural, such as a foolhardy initiation and precautionary instruction for all indiscriminately, even in public; and, worse still, by exposing them at an early age to the occasions, in order to accustom them, so it is argued, and as it were to harden them against such dangers.” Pope Pius XI, Dec. 31, 1931

    Teachings of Francis IScripture or Past Church Teaching
    Atheism
    On Heaven and Earth2, pp. 12-13: “I do not approach the relationship in order to proselytize, or convert the atheist; I respect him… nor 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."
     
    "If any one deny the one true God, Creator and Lord of all things visible and invisible, let him be anathema" (Conc. Vatican., Sess. III, "De fide", can. i).
     
    "If anyone shall have said that the one true God, our Creator and our Lord, cannot be known with certitude by those things which have been made, by the natural light of human reason: let him be anathema" (First Vatican Council, Sess III, can. 2/1: Denz. 1806; cf. D. 1785).
     
    And to you who are troubled, rest with us when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven, with the angels of his power, in a flame of fire, giving vengeance to them who know not God, and who obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, who shall suffer eternal punishment in destruction, from the face of the Lord, and from the glory of his power.” II Thessalonians I: 7-9
     
    Francis I response to open letter3 published Sep 2013: “First of all, you ask if the God of the 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.
     
    "...faith is the beginning of human salvation, the foundation, and the root of all Justification; without which it is impossible to please God..." Council of Trent, Chapter VIII

    Blessed Trinity
    Interview with the Italian newspaper La Repubblica1, September 24, 2013: “I believe in God, not in a Catholic God, there is no Catholic God, there is God and I believe in Jesus Christ, his incarnation. Jesus is my teacher and my pastor, but God, the Father, Abba, is the light and the Creator. This is my Being.”
     
    Comment: Our Catholic God is the Trinity, which is different from the Gods professed by non-Christians:
     
    "the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God, and yet there are not three Gods but one God." Athanasian Creed
     
    “Q. 1400. Name some of the more essential religious truths we must know and believe. 2.(2) That in God there are three Divine Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, and these Divine Persons are called the Blessed Trinity.” Baltimore Catechism

    Capital Punishment (The Death Penalty)
    Letter to the President of the International Commission against the death penalty9, March 20, 2015: "Today capital punishment is unacceptable, however serious the condemned’s crime may have been. It is an offence to the inviolability of life and to the dignity of the human person which contradicts God’s plan for man and for society and his merciful justice, and it fails to conform to any just purpose of punishment.".....
     “All Christians and men of good will are thus called today to fight not only for the abolition of the death penalty, whether legal or illegal, and in all its forms, but also in order to improve prison conditions, with respect for the human dignity of the people deprived of their freedom

     
     
     
    To participants in the meeting promoted by the pontifical Council for promoting the new evangelization24, Oct 11, 2017:  “It must be clearly stated that the death penalty is an inhumane measure that, regardless of how it is carried out, abases human dignity. It is per se contrary to the Gospel…"  L’Osservatore Romano, October 13, 2017, pp. 7,11
     
    The same divine authority that forbids the killing of a human being establishes certain exceptions, as when God authorizes killing by a general law or when He gives an explicit commission to an individual for a limited time. The agent who executes the killing does not commit homicide; he is an instrument as is the sword with which he cuts. Therefore, it is in no way contrary to the commandment, 'Thou shalt not kill' to wage war at God's bidding, or for the representatives of public authority to put criminals to death, according to the law, that is, the will of the most just reason” St. Augustine, The City of God, Book 1, chapter 21
     
    Therefore if a man be dangerous and infectious to the community, on account of some sin, it is praiseworthy and healthful that he be killed in order to safeguard the common good, since "a little leaven corrupteth the whole lump” (1 Cor. 5:6)” St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica, Whether It Is Lawful to Kill Sinners?
     
    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” Pius XII, Address to the First International Congress of Histopathology of the Nervous System, 14 Sep 1952, XIV, 328
     
    "The infliction of capital punishment is not contrary to the teaching of the Catholic Church, and the power of the State to visit upon culprits the penalty of death derives much authority from revelation and from the writings of theologians” Catholic Encyclopedia, Capital Punishment

    Cohabitation / Concubinage
    Address to the Diocese of Rome’s Pastoral Congress, Q&A Session14, Jun 16, 2016: “They prefer to cohabitate, and this is a challenge, a task. Not to ask ‘why don’t you marry?’ No, to accompany, to wait, and to help them to mature, help fidelity to mature.”........ “I’ve seen a lot of fidelity in these cohabitations, and I am sure that this is a real marriage, they have the grace of a real marriage because of their fidelity.”
     
    “It is a grievous sin for unmarried men to have concubines ...Wherefore, the holy Synod, that it may by suitable remedies provide against this exceeding evil, ordains that these concubinaries, whether unmarried or married, of whatsoever state, dignity, and condition they may be, if, after having been three times admonished on this subject by the Ordinary, even ex officio, they shall not have put away their concubines, and have separated themselves from all connexion with them, they shall be smitten with excommunication; from which they shall not be absolved until they have really obeyed the admonition given them.” Council of Trent, Ch. VIII, Concubinage is severely punished
     
    “13. But in all these affairs, one of your aims should be to instill in the faithful a greater aversion for sins which scandalize others; your priests should share this aim. You are aware of the increase in the number of those who sin in a scandalous manner: those who blaspheme the heavenly saints and the holy name of God as well; those who live in concubinage.....So, make the faithful consider the seriousness of sins of this kind and the heavy penalties for them, both for the guilt of the sin itself and for the spiritual danger in which they place their brothers by the infection of their bad example. For it is written: "Woe to the world because of scandals . . . Woe to that man by whom the scandal comes!" Pope Pius IX, On the Church in the Pontifical States, December 8, 1849
     
    "The scandal of concubinage is removed by marriage, which should be made known to those who were scandalized, either by the pastor or by the parties themselves." Canon Law 1043
     
    "Hence if both parties intended and expressed the intention in some way or other to enter upon a mere Concubinage, there would be no marriage." Canon Law 1082
     
    "If a marriage is found invalid, as, for instance, among the Gallas, where slaves contract a contubernium or legalized concubinage, the parties must be separated until they are lawfully married" Canon Law 1084
     
    "Therefore concubinage must be given up because incompatible with Christian morals" Canon Law 1124

    ƈσmmυɳιsm
    Conversations with Jorge Bergoglio4, 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…
     
    "See to it, Venerable Brethren, that the Faithful do not allow themselves to be deceived! ƈσmmυɳιsm is intrinsically wrong, and no one who would save Christian civilization may collaborate with it in any undertaking whatsoever. Those who permit themselves to be deceived into lending their aid towards the triumph of ƈσmmυɳιsm in their own country, will be the first to fall victims of their error. And the greater the antiquity and grandeur of the Christian civilization in the regions where ƈσmmυɳιsm successfully penetrates, so much more devastating will be the hatred displayed by the godless" Encyclical On Atheistic ƈσmmυɳιsm by Pope Pius XI, 1937
     
    "To this goal also tends the unspeakable doctrine of ƈσmmυɳιsm, as it is called, a doctrine most opposed to the very natural law. For if this doctrine were accepted, the complete destruction of everyone's laws, government, property, and even of human society itself would follow."

    Contraception
    In-flight interview from Mexico15, Feb 17, 2016: “The great Paul VI, in a difficult situation in Africa, permitted nuns to use a form of artificial contraceptives in cases of rape.....On the other hand, avoiding pregnancy is not an absolute evil. In certain cases, as in this one (the Zika virus outbreak), or in the one I mentioned of Blessed Paul VI, it was clear.”
     
    "But no reason, however grave, may be put forward by which anything intrinsically against nature may become conformable to nature and morally good. Since, therefore, the conjugal act is destined primarily by nature for the begetting of children, those who in exercising it deliberately frustrate its natural power and purpose sin against nature and commit a deed which is shameful and intrinsically vicious."
    "...any use whatsoever of matrimony exercised in such a way that the act is deliberately frustrated in its natural power to generate life is an offense against the law of God and of nature, and those who indulge in such are branded with the guilt of a grave sin."
    "...No difficulty can arise that justifies the putting aside of the law of God which forbids all acts intrinsically evil." Pope Pius XI, Encyclical On Christian Marriage, Dec 31, 1930
     
    "A negative precept of natural law which prohibits a thing intrinsically evil can never be lawfully transgressed not even under the influence of the fear of death, (Lib. I, tr. ii, c. iv, dub. 2, n. 1) So that it is not lawful to do a thing which is wrong in itself, even to escape death" Catholic Encyclopedia, Hermann Busembaum

    Conversion/Proselytizing
    Church of the Assumption, Tbilisi, Georgia16, Oct 1, 2016: “Never fight! Let the theologians study the abstract realities of theology. But what should I do with a friend, neighbour, an Orthodox person? Be open, be a friend. ‘But should I make efforts to convert him or her?’ There is a very grave sin against ecumenism: proselytism. We should never proselytize the Orthodox!” L’ Osservatore Romano, October 7, 2016, p. 11
     
    Comment: If proselytizing is a grave sin, why did all of the Catholic missionaries throughout the history of the Church dedicate their lives to it?
     
    "… St. Francis De Sales had volunteered to re-evangelize the Chablais, a region in France south of Geneva consisting of some 72,000 souls, almost all of whom were now Calvinists, since their ancestors had succumbed to Protestantism 60 years before… St. Francis' first few months saw mostly failure, as he spent a very cold winter tramping over the countryside, receiving a frigid welcome and sometimes sleeping in hay lofts at night. So he resorted to writing pamphlets - which he posted on walls and slipped under doors. By this method he was able to reach the souls he was after, such that at the end of 4 years, almost the entire population of 72,000 had returned to the ancient Catholic Faith." The Catholic Controversy, St. Francis De Sales
     
    Discourse to Priests, Men and Women Religious, Seminarians21 Sep 9, 2017: “On one of my trips, World Youth Day in Poland [Krakow 2016], during a lunch with 15 young people and the Archbishop, one of them asked me: ‘What can I tell my young friend who is an atheist, who does not believe, what reasoning can I use?’. And it struck me how to reply: ‘Look, the last thing you must do is say anything’. He just stared at me.” L’Osservatore Romano, Sep 22, 2017, p. 10
     
    "Having protected their persons (the Jҽωs), St. Vincent now proceeded to the salvation of their souls.

May each one do so according to his or her own religious tradition.”
    L’ Osservatore Romano, October 30, 2015, pp. 3-4
    "The Catholic Church is alone in keeping the true worship. This is the fount of truth, this the house of Faith, this the temple of God: if any man enter not here, or if any man go forth from it, he is a stranger to the hope of life and salvation.” Encyclical "Mortalium Animos" (On Religious Unity), by Pope Pius XI in 1928
     
    "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 God and 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."

It is he who is persecuting Christians today, he who is anointing us with (the blood of) martyrdom. He knows that Christians are disciples of Christ: that they are one, that they are brothers! He doesn’t care if they are Evangelicals, or Orthodox, Lutherans, Catholics or Apostolic…he doesn’t care! They are Christians.

We forbid each and every one of the faithful of either sex, in virtue of holy obedience and under the above penalties to be incurred automatically, to read, assert, preach, praise, print, publish, or defend them. They will incur these penalties if they presume to uphold them in any way, personally or through another or others, directly or indirectly, tacitly or explicitly, publicly or occultly, either in their own homes or in other public or private places.” Condemning the Errors of Martin Luther (Exsurge Domine), Pope Leo X, June 15, 1520

    Evolution of Doctrine
    To participants in the meeting promoted by the pontifical Council for promoting the new evangelization24, Oct 11, 2017: “Doctrine cannot be preserved without allowing it to develop, nor can it be tied to an interpretation that is rigid and immutable without demeaning the working of the Holy Spirit.
    L’ Osservatore Romano, October 13, 2017, pp. 7,11
     
    I sincerely hold that the doctrine of faith was handed down to us from the apostles through the orthodox Fathers in exactly the same meaning and always in the same purport. Therefore, I entirely reject the heretical misrepresentation that dogmas evolve and change from one meaning to another different from the one which the Church held previously.” Pope St. Pius X, Oath against Modernism
     
    "Nor do We merely desire that Catholics should shrink from the errors of Modernism, but also from the tendencies or what is called the spirit of Modernism. Those who are infected by that spirit develop a keen dislike for all that savours of antiquity and become eager searchers after novelties in everything: in the way in which they carry out religious functions, in the ruling of Catholic institutions, and even in private exercises of piety. Therefore it is Our will that the law of our forefathers should still be held sacred: "Let there be no innovation; keep to what has been handed down."

    False Gods
    In 2012, Cardinal Bergoglio held an interreligious prayer meeting in the Cathedral of Buenos Aires with the leaders of false religions including Judaism and Protestant sects. In this prayer meeting he allowed the members of these false religions to pray aloud to their false gods in the Cathedral. Bergoglio has been known to organize other similar meetings (similar to his two predecessors) that are well documented and photographed in the news."First Commandment of God: I am the Lord thy God, thou shall not have strange gods before Me"
     
    Q: What else does the First Commandment forbid?
    A: The First Commandment also forbids all dealings with the devil, and all association with anti-Christian sects.
     The Catechism of Saint Pius X, The First Commandment

     
    When it is said: Thou shalt not have strange gods before me, it is equivalent to saying: Thou shalt worship me the true God; thou shalt not worship strange gods.” The Catechism of Trent, The First Commandment

    Evangelii Gaudium6, November, 2013: “We must never forget that they [the Moslems] ‘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’.
     
    Address to the President of Religious Affairs in Turkey and Muslim and Christian political and religious leaders12, Nov 28, 2014: "We, Muslims and Christians, are the bearers of spiritual treasures of inestimable worth. Among these we recognize some shared elements, though lived according to the traditions of each, such as the adoration of the All-Merciful God, reference to the Patriarch Abraham, prayer, almsgiving, fasting… elements which, when lived sincerely, can transform life and provide a sure foundation for dignity and fraternity."
     
    Comment: Catholics and Muslims do not adore the same God (Catholics adore the Blessed Trinity):

    Prayer in Common
    Conversations with Jorge Bergoglio4, p. 208: “Not long ago I was in a ѕуηαgσgυє 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.”

    Comment: How can Catholics commemorate one of the greatest disasters ever to befall the Church?
     
    "The Reformation destroyed the unity of faith and ecclesiastical organization of the Christian peoples of Europe, cut many millions off from the true Catholic Church, and robbed them of the greatest portion of the salutary means for the cultivation and maintenance of the supernatural life. Incalculable harm was thereby wrought from the religious standpoint. The false fundamental doctrine of justification by faith alone, taught by the Reformers, produced a lamentable shallowness in religious life. Zeal for good works disappeared, the asceticism which the Church had practised from her foundation was despised, charitable and ecclesiastical objects were no longer properly cultivated, supernatural interests fell into the background, and naturalistic aspirations aiming at the purely mundane, became widespread. The denial of the Divinely instituted authority of the Church, both as regards doctrine and ecclesiastical government, opened wide the door to every eccentricity, gave rise to the endless division into sects and the never-ending disputes characteristic of Protestantism, and could not but lead to the complete unbelief which necessarily arises from the Protestant principles..."

    Sacrament of Confession
    Vatican radio7 June 15, 2013: “True reconciliation means that God in Christ took on our sins and He became the sinner for us.  When we go to Confession, for example, it isn’t that we say our sin and God forgives us.  No, not that! We look for Jesus Christ and say:  ‘This is your sin, and I will sin again‘.  And Jesus likes that, because it was his mission:  to become the sinner for us, to liberate us.
     
    In the Sacrament of Penance the repentant Christian confesses his sins to a duly authorized priest, who, standing in the place of God, pronounces the absolution by means of which they are forgiven.” The Catechism Explained (Spirago-Clarke, 1899), Sacrament of Penance
     
    Q: How many conditions are necessary to make a good confession?
    A: To make a good confession five things are necessary: (1) Examination of conscience; (2) Sorrow for having offended God; (3) A resolution of sinning no more; (4) Confession of our sins; (5) Satisfaction or penance” Catechism of Saint Pius X, The Sacrament of Penance

    Sex Education
    Conversations with Jorge Bergoglio4, p. 111: “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.
     
    Another very grave danger is that naturalism which nowadays invades the field of education in that most delicate matter of purity of morals. Far too common is the error of those who with dangerous assurance and under an ugly term propagate a so-called sex-education, falsely imagining they can forearm youths against the dangers of sensuality by means purely natural, such as a foolhardy initiation and precautionary instruction for all indiscriminately, even in public; and, worse still, by exposing them at an early age to the occasions, in order to accustom them, so it is argued, and as it were to harden them against such dangers.” Pope Pius XI, Dec. 31, 1931

But I still respect the one who commits ѕυιcιdє; he is a person who could not overcome the contradictions in his life. I do not reject him.
     
    "Q: Why does God, in the Fifth Commandment, forbid the taking of one's own life or ѕυιcιdє?
    A: In the Fifth Commandment God forbids ѕυιcιdє, because man is not the master of his own life no more than of the life of another. Hence the Church punishes ѕυιcιdє by deprivation of Christian burial.” Catechism of Saint Pius X, The Fifth Commandment

  • Okay.  Because I’m now morally certain, I’m going to go ahead and call the Bernardin-Bergoglio pectoral cross as an icon of the Antichrist.  There’s just too much evidence.

    Mark Docherty has made a post at his place that is a compendium of everything about the Antichrist icon so far, with all of the pictures.  It is a great resource to help spread the word on this.

    Now that thousands and thousands of eyes are on this thing, several more horrifying motifs have been identified.

    First, the animal on the far left is a swine.  Look at the thickness of the body and especially the hindquarters.  No sheep looks like that. That’s a ham if ever I saw one.  As Mark Docherty said, “I smell bacon.”  I smell bacon too.  Definitely.  Swine NEVER have any positive connotation in Scripture or iconography. In fact, because Our Lord cast the demons into the herd of swine, who then promptly committed ѕυιcιdє by running en masse off a cliff, swine have a very, very consistent tie to the demonic and to hell and damnation.






    That’s a pig, folks.

    Next, the “grass”.  A lot of people think it looks more like flames.  Especially since it goes ABOVE the animals.  I agree. It subsumes the animals completely.  They aren’t standing upon it.

    Finally, the tunic.  A BUNCH of people emailed in about the tunic.  Not only is there a phallus shape front and center, but the folds on the viewer’s right look suspiciously like a hand grasping the phallus.

    Now here is what is going to happen, so you’re prepared.  Any discussion of this will be the target of GASLIGHTING.  “Mentally ill cօռspιʀαcʏ theorists,” “filthy-minded sex perverts,” blah, blah, blah.  You know yourself.  Are you a filthy-minded sex pervert?  Probably not.  So don’t be bothered by the GASLIGHTING.  Are the things we have described either clearly visible (like the backwards-facing leg and the swine on the left) or sufficiently plausible as to factor into the calculus?  Of course they are.  DON’T FALL FOR GASLIGHTING.

    Additionally, let’s think tactically from the enemy’s perspective for a moment.  If you were Bernardin, an actual Satanist and infiltrator to the highest levels of the Catholic Church, wouldn’t you get your kicks from wearing something, like this pectoral cross image, that contained satanic iconography, but at the same time was subtle enough for you to wear openly, mocking God and the faithful as you walked around, laughing interiorly at the “stupid rubes” who couldn’t see what you were LITERALLY dangling in front of them?  Of course.  THAT’S THE ENTIRE POINT.

    The backstory on Antipope Bergoglio’s connection to this wretched thing as having originated with him doesn’t check out.  Bernardin was CLEARLY wearing this thing (the swine is just visible) before he ordained Wilton Gregory a bishop in ARSH 1983.  We know this from THIS picture of Gregory emcee-ing Bernardin’s Mass.  Bishops don’t emcee outside of Papal Masses.





    The “artist”, whose signature is beneath the feet of the figure, was a sculptor from Genoa, Italy named Antonio Vedele.  Vedele is the man who sculpted the image as a mold, which was then cast into metal.  Apparently, Vedele, who died in ARSH 1997, passed the original mold to a student of his during the 1970s named Giuseppe Albrizzi who then cast more of them.  Bergoglio started wearing his copy while Archbishop of Buenos Aires in the 1990s.  But it is important to note that the Vedele Antichrist pectoral cross did NOT originate with Bergoglio in Buenos Aires, but was also worn for decades previously by the KNOWN SATANIST PEDOPHILE sơdơmITE Cardinal Joseph Bernardin.  I doubt Antipope Bergoglio’s cross is Bernardin’s, as Bernardin was probably buried with his in ARSH 1996. But they are absolutely the cast from the same Vedele mold. They are identical.

    I can find nothing about Antonio Vedele except his dates (ARSH 1930-1997) and the fact that he was a sculptor, working mostly in silver, in Genoa.

    WHAT TO DO IF YOU HAVE AN ICON OF THE ANTICHRIST/”POPE FRANCIS CROSS”

    Folks, this icon of the Antichrist has been sold AGGRESSIVELY in many forms for the past eight years as “The Pope Francis Cross”.  It is sold as a pendant, keychain fob, and most sickeningly, it is used where the Crucifix should be on “Pope Francis Rosaries”.  ANYONE who has bought any Rosaries, especially souvenir Rosaries from Rome or any other pilgrimage site or church gift shop, needs to check and make sure this satanic image is NOT in their home. There are countless THOUSANDS of these things polluting the planet. Maybe millions.

    FOLKS, THIS IS TOTALLY UNCHARTED TERRITORY. NEVER BEFORE IN HISTORY HAS ANYTHING LIKE THIS EVER HAPPENED, SO YES, WE NEED TO DEMONSTRATE INTELLECTUAL SELF-SUFFICIENCY IN THIS SITUATION AND UNDERSTAND THAT THERE IS NO PLAYBOOK FOR DESTROYING “OFFICIAL” SACRAMENTALS WITH SATANIC IMAGERY.

    BECAUSE THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE.

    IF you have an icon of the Antichrist under the “Pope Francis Cross” brand, here are instructions for disposing of it.

    IF IT IS A ROSARY:

    Break the rosary into pieces (metal clippers to break the chain) so that it is unusable as a Rosary.  If you can, damage and deface the Antichrist icon portion specifically.  Then, DISPOSE OF IT IN RUNNING WATER.  For most people this means throwing it off a bridge.

    Our Lady is not only not going to be offended by you destroying a Rosary with an icon of the Antichrist (and probably an image of the Antipope) on it, I’m sure she will be grateful.  Just make sure you have another Rosary to use, and if your Rosary isn’t blessed, GET IT BLESSED!

    IF IT IS A PENDANT OR KEYCHAIN:

    Deface and destroy it as best you can.  If it is a silver pendant, consider asking a jeweler to melt it down. Then THROW WHATEVER IS LEFT INTO RUNNING WATER.

    As always, I hope this helps.

    Our Lady, Undoer of Knots, pray for us.

    Lord Jesus Christ, the Good Shepherd, have mercy on us.

    The sedes here are grasping at straws, as usual. I don't see anything satanic about the cross.

  • Good grief.

    The sedes here are grasping at straws, as usual. I don't see anything satanic about the cross.
    So the writings that is posted by 54rosary are nothing but straws.  I pity you!


    For your information, the term sedevacantist is a CATHOLIC TERM, approved by the Papacy who in the past even put out a stamp with those words, SEDEVACANTIST.


    Terms that are used (within the faith today)  that are novelty are NOVUS Order, R&R along with other initials, which seem to be growing in numbers, as now I see Bennvacantism or whatever,   I am not objecting to SSPX in general just making a point about newness.

    I'm okay with you taking pity on me. I could use it!

    Not to worry, Myrna. Even though I complain about sedeism, I believe that the Resistance will become, eventually, sedevacantist, since the sedes are determined to take it over. That will happen, but it will likely be after Bishop Williamson and Bp. Faure go to their eternal reward. Probably not before that. So take heart! 

    The sedes aren't going to allow the Resistance to exist forever, as we can see daily on this forum. They will win in the end, because they will be allowed to.
