  • Even the Devil can quote Scripture, Poche. Just because Bergoglio talks about the Stations of the Cross, it means nothing.

    He also speaks against the do it yourself masses and he speaks in favor of the importance of prayer in relation to works of charity.

  • Francis also emphasized that the liturgy is not a “do-it-yourself” zone ...

    And he forcefully condemned the practice of placing beachballs on the altar.

  • Yes, it is possible to find examples of Pope Francis saying or doing good things.

    Indeed, not even Satan himself is pure evil ... otherwise he would not exist.  For every thing which exists, there's some good there.  OK, so Francis is at least 10-15% Catholic.  All is now good with the Church.

    Every Good Friday the Pope publicly prays the Stations of the Cross at the Coliseum.

  • Francis also emphasized that the liturgy is not a “do-it-yourself” zone and urged the Vatican officials, “as in other areas of ecclesial life,” to avoid “ideological polarizations” and an attitude of “perpetual dialectics” against those with differing ideas about the liturgy.

    I guess that means no more clown masses.
    No, Poche.  I think Pope Francis means no more criticizing clown masses.

  • Pope Francis called for the Sacrament of Confession to be elevated in the pastoral life of the Church during a Lenten penitential liturgy in St. Peter’s Basilica Friday.
    “Confession is the passage from misery to mercy,” Pope Francis said in his homily for the Lenten reconciliation service March 29.
    “Let us restore to this sacrament the place it deserves in life and pastoral ministry!” he said.
    The pope said that receiving pardon for our sins through a priest is “always a new, distinctive and unique experience.”
    “We pass from being alone with our miseries … to being raised up and encouraged by the Lord who grants us a new start,” he said.
    Following the homily, Pope Francis led a silent examination of conscience. The pope then heard the confessions of several penitents in St. Peter’s Basilica.
    Other priests were also available throughout the basilica to hear individual confessions.
    Pope Francis recommended that people approaching the Sacrament of Reconciliation spend time looking at a crucifix after making their confession. It would be beautiful, he said, to remain with “eyes fixed on Jesus who has just set us free: no longer looking at our miseries, but rather at his mercy.”
    “To look at the Crucified One and say with amazement: ‘That’s where my sins ended up. You took them upon yourself. You didn’t point your finger at me; instead, you opened your arms and forgave me once again,’” he said.
    “For this is the heart of Confession: not the sins we declare, but the divine love we receive, of which we are ever in need,” Francis added.
    The penitential service marked the beginning of the “24 Hours for the Lord” initiative held annually on the fourth Friday and Saturday of Lent.
    The pope reflected, “How many times do we feel alone, that we have lost our way in life? How many times do we no longer know how to begin again, overwhelmed by the effort to accept ourselves? We need to start over, but we don’t know where to begin.”
    “Only by being forgiven can we set out again with fresh confidence, after having experienced the joy of being loved by the Father to the full,” he said.
    Earlier in the day, Pope Francis met with seminarians and young priests taking part in an internal Vatican forum on formation for the sacrament.
    Many perceive the Sacrament of Confession -- and with it a sense of sin -- to be in crisis in the contemporary world, he said, and stressed that the formation of priests is necessary to overcome the crisis and to “offer an ever more qualified service capable of really manifesting the beauty of the Divine Mercy.”
    “If we want to be free from evil, we have to make room for the Lord who forgives and heals,” Francis said.
    “Evil is strong, it has a seductive power: it attracts and fascinates. Our own efforts are not enough to detach ourselves from it: we need a greater love. Without God, we cannot overcome evil,” he said. “Only his love raises us up from within, only his tender love poured out into our hearts makes us free.”
    “This is the heart of Confession: not the sins we declare, but the divine love we receive, of which we are ever in need,” Pope Francis said.

  • Pope Francis celebrated the feast of his patron St. George – Jorge in Spanish – by giving away rosaries to 6,000 young people from Milan, asking them to pray for him through Mary’s intercession.
    The rosaries came from World Youth Day in Panama and were given to the Milanese youth during a Mass celebrated by Archbishop Mario Delpini of Milan in St. Peter’s Basilica Tuesday morning.

  •  Pope Francis Wednesday reminded those who think belief in the devil is antiquated or outdated that Satan really exists and that Jesus himself experienced his temptations and overcame them.
    “So began the public life of Jesus, with the temptation that comes from Satan. Satan was present,” the pope said May 1.
    “Many people say: ‘But why talk about the devil, which is an ancient thing? The devil does not exist.’ But look at what the Gospel teaches you,” Francis emphasized. “Jesus confronted the devil, he was tempted by Satan. But Jesus rejects every temptation and comes out victorious.”
    He advised people to remember in their own moments of temptation that “Jesus has already fought this temptation for us.”

  • And just the other day Pope Francis was talking about how the old Mosaic law was obsolete.
