The members of the seven member Catholic and Muslim commission include Pope Francis’s personal secretary, Fr. Yoannis Lahzi Gaid, and the president of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, Archbishop Miguel Angel Ayuso Giuxot. In a statement on Monday, Aug. 26, Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni said that Pope Francis “encourages the efforts of the Committee to spread knowledge of the Document; he thanks the United Arab Emirates for the concrete commitment shown on behalf of human fraternity and he expresses the hope that similar initiatives can spring up throughout the world.”
“Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with
death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall
pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and
under falsehood have we hid ourselves: Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD,

corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make
What other popes have talked about, Pope Francis is
bringing to pass, with amazing progress in assembling the end times religion of
Chrislam. The Roman Catholic Religion is a counterfeit of biblical
Christianity, but that’s exactly what is needed to bring about the arrival of
Messiah of Antichrist. You are watching Mystery,
Babylon rising before your very eyes, as she prepares to take her
prophesied place on the end times stage.

The Abu Dhabi document drew controversy for
stating that a “pluralism and diversity” of religions is “willed by God.”
The passage inciting controversy reads:
Freedom is a right of every person: each individual enjoys the freedom of
belief, thought, expression and action. The pluralism and the
diversity of religions, color, sex, race and language are willed by God in
His wisdom, through which He created human beings. This divine wisdom is
the source from which the right to freedom of belief and the freedom to be
different derives. Therefore, the fact that people are forced to adhere to a
certain religion or culture must be rejected, as too the imposition of a
cultural way of life that others do not accept.
On March 1, 2019, during an ad limina visit of the
bishops of Central Asia to Rome, Bishop Schneider, whose diocese is located in
a predominantly Muslim nation, expressed concern about this
formulation to Pope Francis. The Pope said that the phrase in question on the
“diversity of religions” meant “the permissive will of God,” and he gave
explicit permission to Bishop Schneider and the other bishops present to quote
Bishop Schneider in turn asked the Pope to clarify the statement in an
official manner. Pope Francis appeared to offer an informal clarification at
general audience on April 3, 2019, but no official clarification or correction
to the text has been given to date.
Pietro (Peter, in English) Parolin is the head of the Roman Curia in the
Vatican as its secretary of state. He has been called “papabile, a candidate to
succeed Francis as pope.” An April 2019 article
on the Catholic website, Crux, stated that Pietro
Parolin has become “more powerful than you can possibly imagine.” And the
new constitution for reforming and governing the Roman Curia would make this
obvious. The Crux article ends with “…within the Roman Curia,
everyone will now know who’s boss: The Cardinal Secretary of State.”
I will be using Catholic websites in this writing to make the point that
there are many Catholics dissatisfied with this pope.
What is this New Catholic Constitution About?
Summary from the Catholic News Agency (CNA) website: Analysis: New
Vatican constitution to centralize power in state secretariat:
A long-serving curial official said, “…This is just the total centralization
of power in the office of the Secretary of State. Nothing can be done without
the pope’s approval, and nothing gets to the pope except through [Cardinal
Parolin] – it’s the creation of a vice-regency.”
An archbishop, currently serving in a senior curial role, said, “It is an
essentially Soviet model. Lots of meetings, lots of discussion, but in the end
the Secretary [of State] decides what will happen.”
Several curial staffers from different departments told CNA that their
congregations had returned “pages of suggested revisions,” and expressed deep
concerns about the document’s proposed centralization of curial operations…. – source
Summary from Crux: New Vatican doc displays simplified,
In its new mega-department for evangelization, the feminine genius, it says,
must be promoted in the church… as well as for the faithful who, in certain
cultures, live in polygamous relationships.
Publication of the document was expected in June, but due to the vast
response to the text of over 200 pages, publication is now tentatively set for
September. – source
The Vatican’s former Prefect of the Congregation for Doctrine, Cardinal
Gerhard Müller, has strongly criticized it. He said “the teaching of the Faith
is being mentioned as merely one random task of the pope among many others, and
most importantly, now to be subordinate to his secular duties.” The
Cardinal points out in this new constitution a “wrong and deviant use of
fundamental notions of Catholic theology…” He warns against a “secularization
of the concept of the Church,” as if she is “to be run like an international
company” and as if “it is about a balance of power” between a mother company
Fr. Thomas Weinandy, a member of the International Theological Commission
who was removed as an adviser to the US Conference of Catholic bishops in 2017
after his criticisms of Pope Francis, said there’s “no problem with making
Evangelization as the primary pastoral work of the Church,” but not if it means
not telling others of the “Mysteries of the Faith.” Without doctrine
and moral teaching, “there is no evangelization,” he continued. – source
Those “mysteries of the faith” of the Catholic church are indeed mysteries;
for you’ll find lots of doctrines of man in that system, but not many of its
beliefs in the Bible. More on that shortly.
Secularizing the Catholic Faith
It sounds like this new constitution, besides giving Peter Parolin power
over all the workings of the Catholic church, will increase the Vatican’s focus
on trying to join different belief systems to the “Mother Church” as it calls
The Vatican deal with China in September 2018 allows the Communist
government to recommend bishops of the Catholic church. Why agree to such a
blatant secular compromise?
The agreement states that China will recommend bishops before they’re
appointed by the pope, and stipulates that the pope can veto bishops that China
recommends, within limits. Francis, as part of the deal, lifted the
excommunication of seven bishops who had been appointed by China without
papal approval. Also, under the deal, two Vatican-aligned Chinese bishops
recognized by the pope have been asked to resign in favor of state-sanctioned
prelates. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that the Chinese
government is only going to select bishops who are loyal to the Communist
Party. Meanwhile, the persecution
of Chinese Catholics has continued, and of Protestants.
From America Magazine: Cardinal Parolin defends Vatican-China
agreement amid criticism:
At the symposium, “Stand Together to Defend International Religious
Freedom,” Parolin defended the Vatican-China agreement, saying, “We signed this
agreement to help advance religious freedom, to find normalization for the
Catholic community there, and then for all other religions to have space and a
role to play…” – source
Francis, Parolin and previous popes have shown they’re Marxist, Socialist,
or Communist themselves and/or have bowed to countries with those systems,
secularizing in order to keep seminaries open and “fatten up the Catholic
church.” You can read about this on
the Catholic website Tradition in Action.
Catechism #841 states that Muslims worship the same God as the Catholic
church; therefore, both Francis and Parolin call them brothers and sisters. But
the Muslim god is not the God of the Bible. And then there are the Vatican
prayers alongside Muslims, Buddhists, and Hindus, and reverence for their
precepts and teachings, claiming they “reflect a ray of Truth which enlightens
At the Second Vatican Council in 1965, the Catholic church declared its
attitude to other religions in a document called Nostra Aetate (which means ‘in our
time’). Here is an excerpt:
“In her tasks of promoting unity and love among men, indeed among nations,
considers above all what people have in common and what draws them
to fellowship. (n.1) Also, The Catholic Church rejects nothing that is true and
holy in these religions. She regards with sincere reverence those ways of
conduct and of life, those precepts and teachings which, though differing in
many aspects from the ones she holds and sets forth, nonetheless often reflect
a ray of that Truth which enlightens all men. (n.2).”
All this is building towards the one-world religion. No false religion will
have a role to play in salvation. Christ is the only way, the truth and the
life. No one comes to our Father in heaven except through Him (John 14:6).
The Bible, as we know, tells us in Revelation 17 about “Mystery
Babylon, the Mother of Harlots.” (Babylon refers to the root of all false
religion.) The woman dressed in purple and scarlet who sits on seven hills is
drunk with the blood of the saints (martyrs for Jesus who refuse to bow to
false doctrine). This Mother church will be aligned with the Antichrist in the
Tribulation until he has finished using her to gain power with his ten-nation
confederacy; then he will have her destroyed.
Two Popes at the End of Days?
Speaking of that destruction, Francis’ namesake prophesied centuries ago
about the time of the end when two popes are alive, one having stolen the
throne from the other – a time when the church of Rome will be destroyed.
We’re not to give extra-biblical prophecy the same credence as the
God-inspired Bible. But this prophecy and another that applies here, which will
also be discussed, only bear mentioning since they appear as though they’re
coming to pass…but only in part! Satan knows Bible prophecy too. What
better way to keep people deceived by mixing truth with lies?!
The first prophecy I’m referring to is the one by Francis of Assisi. Some
claim this prophecy was made up by dissenting members of the 13th
century Franciscan order and attributed to Francis of Assisi. No matter, for it
doesn’t deflect from what we see happening today. Keep this in mind, though:
when revealing this prophecy, Francis of Assisi still held to the false belief
in what he called the true pope and the true church, including Mary worship.
Not long before he died in 1226, Francis of Assisi gathered the members of
his order and warned them of great tribulations that would befall the Catholic
church in the end of days just before Christ’s return. Here is an excerpt:
“The devils will have unusual power; the immaculate purity of our Order, and
of others, will be so much obscured that there will be very few Christians who
will obey the true Sovereign Pontiff and the Roman Church with loyal
hearts and perfect charity. At the time of this tribulation, a man, not
canonically elected, will be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his
cunning, will endeavour to draw many into error and death. [Two popes alive at
the end of days.]
“Then scandals will be multiplied, our Order will be divided, and many
others will be entirely destroyed, because they will consent to error instead
of opposing it. There will be such diversity of opinions and
schisms among the people, the religious and the clergy, that, except
those days were shortened, according to the words of the Gospel, even the
elect would be led into error, were they not specially guided, amid such great
confusion, by the immense mercy of God…
“Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample
it under foot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even
by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Jesus Christ will
send them not a true Pastor, but a destroyer.” – from Works of the Seraphic
Father St. Francis Of Assisi [London: R. Washbourne, 1882], pp.
Interestingly, rumor has it that the papal throne was usurped from Benedict
with help from elitists including Obama and others that wanted the Marxist
Bergoglio (Francis) to be pope, who would be in line with their leftist values.
From Gloria.TV: Wikileaks: Clinton, Obama, Soros, Overthrew Pope
Benedict in Vatican Coup:
George Soros, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton orchestrated a coup in the
Vatican to overthrow the conservative Pope Benedict and replace him with
radical leftist Pope Francis, according to a group of Catholic leaders citing
evidence from various sources, including WikiLeaks emails. – source
This would make Francis not canonically elected. The canon law of
the Catholic church says a pope’s resignation is valid only if he makes the
decision in full freedom and without pressure from others.
Supernatural Signs in the Conclave?
I still remember the words of Cardinal Schönborn in speaking about how
Francis unexpectedly became pope.
From The Telegraph: Pope Francis elected after supernatural ‘signs’
in the Conclave, says Cardinal:
Schönborn, Archbishop of Vienna, said the surprise election of Pope Francis
came about because of a series of supernatural “signs” in the conclave,
including one which he could not speak about. He said he felt two strong signs
that Bergoglio (Francis) was “the chosen one.” Cardinal Schönborn went on to
say that he’s sure many cardinals “received similar signs during the Conclave.”
He said that without such signs, “It wouldn’t have been possible to have this
election so soon and so rapidly… It is as if he would say to the world ‘come
home, I wait for you.’” – source
The Schism in the Catholic Church Today
Even cardinals are calling for Francis to step down. Is he grooming his
cohort in case he steps down OR just wants to focus on other things and allow
Parolin to lead the sheep? Or something else. Did Francis usurp the throne from
Benedict? Will Pietro, the Roman Curia boss, usurp the throne from Francis? Oh
well, let’s move on.
A March 2019 article by Julia Meloni on the Catholic website OnePeterFive,
provided some interesting insight. Here is a summary of that article titled,
Cardinal Parolin: The Next Pope?
Last year, Archbishop Viganò alleged that Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Francis’s
handpicked secretary of state, was complicit with him in covering up the
allegations of decades
of sexual abuse of minors, seminarians and young priests by Cardinal
McCarrick. Despite this, Antonio Socci, a leading conservative Vatican-watcher,
says meetings of cardinals about a possible conclave have been taking place,
with Parolin as the clear frontrunner.
Socci says cardinals once loyal to Francis are so concerned about a schism
that they’re planning to appeal to him to step down. Their favored
candidate for replacement is understood to be Cardinal Pietro Parolin.
Why Parolin? According to Marco Tosatti, Parolin is a progressive
diplomat with ties to what is referred to as the Vatican’s St. Gallen
mafia, which wields a lot of power. Other Vatican-watchers call
him a clear “reformer” — a “pastor open to dialogue,”
in line with Francis’s “winds of change.”
Parolin is said to be a revolutionary without the wild
liability of Francis. To stay papabile, he’s been distancing
himself from some of the questionable aspects of Francis’s reign. He’s been
likened to a fireman, carefully controlling the blazes of this pontificate with
his diplomatic prowess.
Parolin supposedly was shipped off to Venezuela after a falling out with
Cardinal Bertone, Benedict’s secretary of state. Francis, who spoke positively about Parolin before becoming
pope, soon replaced Bertone with Parolin — who began loyally implementing Francis’s will. The pope,
in turn, lavished Parolin with power. Francis indulges him, and power has
drained from other Vatican departments toward this secretary of state.
It was Parolin who moved to suspend an external audit of the Vatican’s
Cardinal Zen says it’s Parolin who pushed Francis towards the deal with
Communist China to allow that government to recommend Catholic bishops, which
critics say betrays Chinese Catholics. He calls for Parolin’s resignation over
this betrayal. He says Parolin “got rid” of him, and calls Parolin “arrogant
and despotic, interested more in diplomatic (worldly) success than in the
triumph of the Faith.” In Wikipedia’s article on Parolin, a quote from Cardinal
Zen said Parolin “is dangerous.”
Parolin seems alarmingly friendly with cultural Marxists and other worldly
elites. In 2018, he was the first Vatican official to ever attend the secretive
Bilderberg Meeting, the summit of globalists with an agenda of open borders and
a one-world government. Parolin also joined Francis in promoting the U.N.’s menacing globalist
agenda. Although Parolin says the agenda must respect life in “all its stages,”
pro-life leaders warn that the Vatican’s collaboration with the UN will extend
abortion, smuggled into the agenda via coded language on “reproductive
In 2017, Parolin further cemented his revolutionary credentials, asserting
that Vatican II initiated an “irreversible” process. He quoted a theologian who
boasted: “Absolutely nothing will be as it was before!” Parolin praised the new
“seeds” of “synodality” — a term that, under Francis, has become synonymous
with permanent revolution.
Parolin is the only whispered-about candidate for pope with any real chance
of being elected; he is the smooth revolutionary, the master collaborator with
“I don’t think he has faith. He is just a good diplomat in a very secular,
mundane meaning,” Cardinal Zen says of Parolin. –source
Another interesting article from the Catholic website Lifesite News,
speaks of Francis’ and Parolin’s promotion of Bishop Robert McElroy in San
Diego. “Although McElroy says no clerical “gay subculture” exists in his
diocese, he is pro-homosexual, having defended a diocesan employee in a
same-sex “marriage,” told priests to embrace “LGBT families,” and has been
accused, along with Francis and Parolin, in knowing about ex-Cardinal
McCarrick’s serial sexual abuse of seminarians and ignoring the matter.”
Peter, the Roman
Now to the one you may be wondering about since reading the title of this
article. I’m sure many of you have heard about Malachy’s prophecy of the popes.
He gave the prophecy in Latin, and the name he gave of the last leader of the
Catholic church was Petrus Romanus, which translates Peter (Pietro, in Italian)
There is also what may contain truth in Malachy’s prophecy, but deception as
well. Satan knows about the Mother of Harlots church in Rome described in
Revelation, yet this prophecy appears to draw one in with its uncanny accuracy
in the descriptions of the popes, including the last pope or one who leads the Catholic
church in the Tribulation. There is no mention of the false religious system that
it has been and will continue to be.
Terry James said in his book review of Petrus Romanus by Tom Horn and
Chris Putnam, “Neither Tom Horn nor Cris Putnam–nor I, as your reviewer of this
book—claim that St. Malachy was a God-inspired prophet in the sense of an Old
Testament or New Testament prophet. He was not. However, I will tell you
without reservation that the little-known and sometimes previously undiscovered
facts these researchers have uncovered and constructed into an enthralling
picture of the one who will likely be the last pontiff are absolutely
Hal Lindsey reported on Malachy’s
prophecy before Francis became pope. He said, “I’m not saying that this
man’s prophecy rises to the same level of detail and accuracy as those in the
Bible. However, it does contain some remarkable predictions that seem to have
been fulfilled across the centuries and may bear relevance for today.” Hal
mentioned that some claim it’s a forgery, but he pointed out that – if it were
made up by an anti-Catholic Protestant, how does one explain away the fact that
it has been kept under guard in the Vatican archives since it was discovered in
1590? [Some claim the author was Cardinal Girolamo Simoncelli who lived from
1522 to 1605]. Regardless, it can’t be dated any later than 1590 no matter who
would have written it.
Malachy, a 12th-century bishop of Armagh in what is now Northern Ireland,
purportedly had a vision in which he foresaw all of the popes from the death of
Pope Innocent II until the destruction of the church and the return of Christ.
It is said that he gave an account of his visions to Pope Innocent II, but the
document remained unknown in the secret Vatican Archives until its discovery in
Malachy was obviously held in high esteem as he was canonized as a saint by
Pope Clement III on July 6, 1199, 50 years after his death.
Here is his prophecy of the last leader of the Catholic church:
“In extreme persecution will sit Peter the Roman (Petrus Romanus), who will
pasture his sheep in tribulations; and when these things are finished, the city
of seven hills [i.e. Rome] will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge
his people. The End.”
“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people,
that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues”
This new Catholic constitution is called PraedicateEvangelium
(Proclaim the Gospel). Yet Francis criticizes Protestants for
evangelizing, or proselytizing, as he put it. But that’s because he
doesn’t like the competition. And we don’t accept the man-made doctrines of the
Catholic church – at least not those of us who are Bible-believers – and we
haven’t joined the broad-way, emergent-divergent so-called “ecumenical”
bandwagon that promotes global unity among all religions under the guise of
tolerance and cooperation. Many Protestant pastors are guilty of the
same thing in these days of apostasy.
The most crucial error among many that the Catholic church
teaches is the following:
According to the RCC’s Canon 12, Council of Trent, “If any one shall say
that justifying faith is nothing else than confidence in the divine mercy
pardoning sins for Christ’s sake, or that it is that confidence alone by which
we are justified… let him be accursed.”
Yet, God’s Word tells us that justification/salvation is by faith:
“But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the
ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness” (Romans 4:5).
“Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord
Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:1).
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is
the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).
From Dave Hunt: “For the Catholic, salvation does not come through
personally receiving Christ as Savior but is a lengthy process that begins with
baptism and thereafter depends upon one’s continued relationship to the
[Catholic] Church. Salvation comes through participation in the sacraments,
penance, good works, suffering for one’s sins and the sins of others here
and/or in purgatory, indulgences to reduce time in purgatory, and almost
endless masses and Rosaries said on one’s behalf even after one’s death.
Catholic evangelism is by works, the very antithesis of “the gospel of the
grace of God” (Acts:20:24). – excerpt fromA Woman Rides the Beast,
This reminds us of what Christ said to the Pharisees and Scribes in Matthew
15:6-9: “…So for the sake of your tradition you have made void the word of God…
‘teaching as doctrines the commandments of men’”
Though the extra-biblical prophecies may contain partial truth concerning
certain events we see unfolding before us, there is only one source – the Bible
– that has proven to be 100% true. And it tells us of a coming one-world false
church and one-world Antichrist government. It speaks of rampant wickedness,
wars and rumor of wars, alignment of end-time nations against the Jews who are
back in their land of Israel, etc. The wildly insane weather we’re seeing is
not climate change; it’s God’s warning to turn back to Him and accept His free
We brethren can rest in “our Blessed Hope, and the glorious appearing of the
great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ” (Titus 2:13).
We who put our faith in Christ alone for our salvation (John 14:6; Acts
4:12) will be caught up in the twinkling of an eye (1 Corinthians 15:52) to
meet Jesus in the clouds (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18) and escape the coming wrath
(1 Thessalonians 5:9; Revelation 3:10).
As the late Jack Kelley would say, “We can almost hear the footsteps of the
The Vatican has sent a special message to all the world’s Muslims, wishing them “a peaceful and fruitful celebration of Ramadan.” “We Muslims and Christians are called to open ourselves to others, knowing and recognizing them as brothers and sisters,” the text states. “In this way, we can tear down walls raised out of fear and ignorance and seek together to build bridges of friendship that are fundamental for the good of all humanity.”
The endearing use of the phrase “brothers
and sisters” invokes a vision of harmony and peace together. This is not
the case between Muslims and Christians globally. This is Chrislam.
If I call someone who is not my biological
sibling my ‘brother or sister’ what exactly am I saying? Well, with the use of
that term, I am acknowledging that that person and myself share an overwhelming
and fundamental agreement about the major issues in life. The bible tells us
that two people cannot ‘walk together’ through life unless there be in
agreement with each other, as we see in the bible verse below. And when
we read the entire chapter from which that verse is taken, we see that verse is
used as a rebuke, which is exactly how I am using it here.
“Can two walk together, except they be agreed?”
Amos 3:3 (KJV)
Pope Francis continues his full court press of
wooing the Muslims and Islam into the folds of the Roman Catholic tent as he
One World Religion that Revelation 13, 17 and 18 tells us the
Roman pontiff will do. As we have long said, just as Rome used the armies of
Spain to enforce the demonic Spanish Inquisition for nearly 300 years, so will
Rome now seek to use the armies of Islamic jihad to promote the Roman Catholic
harlot at the point of a sword. You may not know much bible, you may not
believe in bible prophecy, but that doesn’t change the fact that you are
watching it come to life before your very eyes. The pope is effectively using false
teachers like Rick Warren to advance his cause.
Pope Francis is not merely a ‘defender of
Islam’, he is a promoter of Islam and by extension Sharia Law. He has been
working on this partnership and it soon will be completed, when it is, look
out. Rome will once again have an army, and at that point they will quit
pretending to be a lamb, and go right back to being the ‘roaring lion’ who only
comes to seek, kill and destroy. Pope Francis and his Roman religion is creating
Chrislam, the merger of counterfeit Christianity and Islam, and
he is doing it with impunity. He knows that ‘now is his hour’ and that the
‘power of darkness’ will continue to propel him forward. That’s how he can look
on Muslims who practice Sharia Law and preach hatred of the Jews and Israel as
‘brothers and sisters’ because he is one of them.
Vatican issues a happy Ramadan to all “Muslim brothers and sisters”
FROM JIHAD WATCH: Too many Christians live under
the worst conditions in Islamic countries, as they endure violent persecution
daily under the Sharia. The Pope of Islam is
living a lie and promoting the same. Ongoing, he has abandoned persecuted
Christians, and also persecuted other minority groups including minority Muslim
groups and other victims of jihad. He has also turned a blind eye to Islamic
supremacist assaults and jihad attacks in Western countries as a result of open
His pursuit of dialogue has never included the
demand that Islamic leaders and adherents accept religious freedoms, and the
equality of other faiths and human beings regardless of gender and personal
identity. The Pope does not promote a two way street in his so-called
advancement of “dialogue”. His expectation is that Christians must
embrace “dialogue”, “diversity” and “tolerance” of everyone—including
jihadists– but he has no such message and expectation of Muslims.
The Pope has also declared Rome to be a “city
of bridges, never walls!,” and further stated that “Jesus
demands” we take in Muslim migrants. Meanwhile, he lives in a walled city
within Rome, surrounded by security, and he is not taking in any migrants
Robert Sarah — prefect of the Congregation for Divine
Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments — compared “the modern influx of
Muslim migrants to the invasions of barbarian tribes that ultimately brought
down the Roman Empire in a.d. 475.” Sarah also warned that “it is a false
exegesis [interpretation of scriptural text] to use the Word of God to promote
migration. God never wanted these rifts.”
For the Pope’s trip to Morocco, Vatican media
promotions abandoned the traditional papal insignia and replaced it with the
cross and the crescent; and the crescent did not appear “alongside the cross,
as if a companion to it. Rather, the Islamic symbol encircles the Christian
one” symbolizing a kind of submission
Islamic law, Muslim lives are explicitly worth more than those
of non-Muslims. The Shafi’i Sharia manual Reliance of the Traveller dictates:
“The indemnity for the death or injury of a woman is one-half the indemnity
paid for a man. The indemnity paid for a Jew or Christian is one-third the
indemnity paid for a Muslim. The indemnity paid for a Zoroastrian is
one-fifteenth that of a Muslim.” (o4.9) Sikhs rank even lower, as they are not
People of the Book. The Pope addresses none of this.
Pope Francis has accurately been hailed the “defender of Islam”. As
Robert Spencer rightly notes:
Pope Francis is not only disastrously wrongheaded about an obvious fact that
is reinforced by every day’s headlines; he is also deceiving and misleading his
people about a matter of utmost importance, and keeping them ignorant and
complacent about a growing and advancing threat. source
“Vatican Pope Francis Wishes Happy Ramadan to ‘Muslim Brothers and Sisters’
The Vatican has sent
a special message to all the world’s Muslims, wishing them “a
peaceful and fruitful celebration of Ramadan.” The month of Ramadan, which
began this year on May 5, is “a month for strengthening the spiritual bonds we
share in Muslim-Christian friendship,” reads the message from the
Vatican’s office of interreligious dialogue bearing the title “Christians and
Muslims: Promoting Universal Fraternity.”
“We Muslims and Christians are called to open ourselves to others, knowing
and recognizing them as brothers and sisters,” the text states. “In this way,
we can tear down walls raised out of fear and ignorance and seek together to
build bridges of friendship that are fundamental for the good of all humanity.”
“We thus cultivate in our families and in our political, civil and religious
institutions, a new way of life where violence is rejected, and the human
person respected,” reads the message, which bears the signature of Bishop
Miguel Ángel Ayuso Guixot, secretary of the Pontifical
Council for Interreligious Dialogue.
Our religions invite us to “remain rooted in the
values of peace; to defend the values of mutual understanding, human fraternity
and harmonious coexistence; to re-establish wisdom, justice and love,” the text
says, citing a
joint declaration signed by Pope Francis and the Grand Imam Ahmed a-Tayyeb in
Abu Dhabi this past February.
IN THE NAME OF ALLAH: THE END TIMES
‘UNIVERSAL PEACE DOCUMENT’ POPE FRANCIS SIGNED WITH ISLAMIC LEADER MAKES NO
REFERENCE OF ANY KIND TO JESUS CHRIST OR THE BIBLE
That same declaration brought down heavy
criticism on the pope particularly due to the assertion that the plurality and
diversity of religions “are willed by God in His wisdom,” just as God wills a
plurality of colors, sexes, races, and languages.
A number of Catholic theologians raised objections to the statement, insisting
that it seemed to suggest that either God actively wills error, or that all
religions are equally valid paths to God. The existence of a variety of colors,
races, and languages in humanity is very different from a variety of
contradictory claims about God’s identity and way of acting, they said.
In early April, Francis walked back the earlier statement,
clarifying that in reality God only permits the existence of many
religions without actively willing it. The Vatican’s Ramadan message steers
clear of such theological swampland.
“We are encouraged, therefore, to continue advancing the culture of dialogue
as a means of cooperation and as a method of growing in knowledge of one
another,” the message says.
Pope Francis, like other popes before him, desires global government. This was made clear in his call for globalism on Thursday, during a speech before the members of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences within the Apostolic Palace. Francis demanded that a new “supranational, legal constituted body” enforce the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (IE population control) and their climate change policies.
than calling for the outright abolition of Nation States, the Pope insisted
they all be subjected to external, global governing authorities.
I am beginning to think that Pope Francis, who is also the ruling king of the Roman Vatican City
state nation, is perhaps getting ready to make a real power move
soon. From his throne at the papal Apostolic Palace, King Francis spoke frankly
of his desire to see global rule on a far-greater scale and scope than that of
the United Nations, and the end of borders, walls and nationalism. To boil it
down into only 3 words, King Francis called for a One World Government.
“And they worshipped the
dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying,
Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And
there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power
was given unto him to continue forty and two months.” Revelation 13:4,5 (KJV)
When I first started reading the ‘Left Behind‘
novels back in the mid-90’s, yes I understood it was based on bible prophecy
but when I looked around at the world around me, it seemed more like fantasy.
Flash-forward 23 years later to 2019, and I am struggling to tell the
difference between ‘Left Behind’ and the evening news. That’s how close we are
to the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church,
and the start of the time of Jacob’s trouble after
“And they had a king over
them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in
the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his
name Apollyon.” Revelation 9:11 (KJV)
Yes sir, King Francis edges closer and closer every day to pulling
that prophecy trigger that he was born to pull. All I can say is “pull it,
baby, pull it!”, and let’s get this thing started. I am ready to go., hope
y’all are as well. Flight #777 on Titus213 Airlines now boarding…are you
ready for what comes next?
“And the woman was arrayed
in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and
pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of
her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY,
BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” Revelation 17:4,5 (KJV)
The bible says in Revelation 13 that the Antichrist will control both the
world by the dual means of a global One World Religion, and a global One World
Government. In Revelation 17 it tells us that that system which is called a
‘harlot’, ‘mystery’, and is likened to ancient Babylon, is the Roman Catholic Church.
Francis Calls For One World Government, Attacks Border Walls and National
FROM PULPIT & PEN: Pope Francis, like other popes before him, desires global
government. This was made clear in his call for globalism on Thursday, during a
speech before the members of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences
within the Apostolic
Palace. Francis demanded that a new “supranational,
legal constituted body” enforce the United Nations’ Sustainable Development
Goals (IE population control) and their climate change policies.
In other words, the United Nations
isn’t globally powerful enough, and another global body is needed
to govern the nations.
The plenary session was entitled “Nation, State, Nation-State,” and
included speakers from within Romanism who demanded that all Nation States be
governed by a global, one-world government. Speakers included Hans Joachim
Schellnhuber, a Marxist and German climatologist who claimed that without
global government the world’s climate would be irrevocably harmed and Cardinal
Walter Kasper who spoke on Social Justice.
Rather than calling for the outright
abolition of Nation States, the Pope insisted they all be subjected to
external, global governing authorities.
The Pope said, “Individual nations must be given the power to operate as
far as they can reach…but groups of neighboring nations — as is already the case
— can strengthen their cooperation by attributing the exercise of certain
functions and services to intergovernmental institutions that manage their
The Pope commented, “…The Church has warned persons, peoples and governments
about deviations from this attachment when it is about excluding and hating
others, when it becomes conflictual nationalism that builds walls, indeed even
racism or anti-Semitism.”
He continued, “The Church observes
with concern the re-emergence, almost everywhere in the world, of aggressive
currents towards foreigners, especially immigrants, as well as that growing
nationalism which neglects the common good
The 20-page document is a follow-up to the 2017 Filial Correction of Pope Francis that was signed originally by 62 scholars and which stated that the Pope has “effectively upheld 7 heretical positions about marriage, the moral life, and the reception of the sacraments, and has caused these heretical opinions to spread in the Catholic Church,” especially in light of his 2016 exhortation Amoris Laetitia. The authors of the open letter state in a summary of their letter that it has now become clear that Pope Francis is aware of his own positions contrary to the faith and that the time has come to go a “stage further” by claiming that Pope Francis is “guilty of the crime of heresy.”
Prominent Catholic clergymen and scholars
including Fr. Aidan Nichols, one of the best-known theologians in the
English-speaking world, have issued an open letter accusing Pope Francis of
The Roman Catholic Church is not the Church that Jesus
started, but to unsaved lost people it kind of looks and sounds like it. Kind
of. Well, maybe a little? OK, not at all, but you get what I mean. The Roman
counterfeit fools a lot of people because of its outer veneer of religiosity.
But even within those parameters, the papacy of Pope
Francis is making a lot of high-level Catholics pretty mad. Why?
Let’s take a look and see.
“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come
out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye
receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath
remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto
her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her
double.” Revelation 18:4-6 (KJV)
But I have a news flash for this band of 31 Catholic
theologians that might surprise them, and why they might want to retract their
demands that Pope Francis stop all his religious shenanigans. Francis is only doing
what the bible says the last pope in the end times is supposed to do. The bible
says that there will be a One World Religion
in Revelation 13, and Pope Francis is taking steps to make that happen. The
bible says in Revelation 13, 17 and 18, that there will be a One World
Government over which the king of Vatican City will rule the
world, albeit for a short time, and Pope Francis is working to bring that to
pass as well.
So if these ‘high-ranking’ theologians knew anything about
the bible, what they would be doing is
getting saved, leaving the Roman Catholic counterfeit, and prepare to leave
this world in the Pretribulation
Rapture of the Church. Flight #777 on Titus213 Airlines is now
boarding.! Ahh…you look at life just a little differently when you’re a bible
believer. I’ll take that over being a ‘high-ranking theologian’ any day.
Prominent clergy, scholars accuse Pope Francis of heresy in open letter
FROM LIFE SITE NEWS: They ask the bishops of the Catholic
Church, to whom the open letter is addressed, to “take the steps necessary to
deal with the grave situation” of a pope committing this crime. The authors
base their charge of heresy on the manifold manifestations of Pope Francis’
embrace of positions contrary to the faith and his dubious support of prelates
who in their lives have shown themselves to have a clear disrespect for the
Church’s faith and morals.
“We take this measure as a last resort to respond to the accumulating harm
caused by Pope Francis’s words and actions over several years, which have given
rise to one of the worst crises in the history of the Catholic Church,” the
authors state. The open letter is available in Dutch, Italian, German, French,
Among the signatories are well-respected scholars such as
Father Thomas Crean, Fr. John Hunwicke, Professor John Rist, Dr. Anna Silvas,
Professor Claudio Pierantoni, Dr. Peter Kwasniewski, and Dr. John
Lamont. The text is dated “Easter Week” and appears on the traditional
Feast Day of St. Catherine of Siena, a saint who counseled and admonished
several popes in her time.
The 20-page document is
a follow-up to the 2017 Filial Correction of
Pope Francis that was signed originally by 62 scholars and which stated that
the Pope has “effectively upheld 7 heretical positions about marriage, the
moral life, and the reception of the sacraments, and has caused these heretical
opinions to spread in the Catholic Church,” especially in light of his 2016
exhortation Amoris Laetitia.
The authors of the open letter state in a summary
of their letter (read below) that it has now become clear that
Pope Francis is aware of his own positions contrary to the faith and that
the time has come to go a “stage further” by claiming that Pope Francis is
“guilty of the crime of heresy.”
“We limit ourselves to accusing him of heresy on occasions where he has
publicly denied truths of the faith, and then consistently acted in a way that
demonstrates that he disbelieves these truths that he has publicly denied,” the
They clarify that they are not claiming Pope Francis has “denied truths of
the faith in pronouncements that satisfy the conditions for an infallible papal
“We assert that this would be impossible, since it would be incompatible
with the guidance given to the Church by the Holy Spirit,” they state. In light
of this situation, the authors call upon the bishops of the Church to take
action since a “heretical papacy may not be tolerated or dissimulated to avoid
a worse evil.”
For this reason, the authors “respectfully request the
bishops of the Church to investigate the accusations contained in the letter,
so that if they judge them to be well founded they may free the Church from her
present distress, in accordance with the hallowed adage, Salus
animarum prima lex (‘the salvation of souls is the highest
law’). The bishops can do this, the writers suggest, “by admonishing Pope
Francis to reject these heresies, and if he should persistently refuse, by
declaring that he has freely deprived himself of the papacy.”
The authors first present in detail – and with theological references to
substantiate their claims – the different positions against the faith Pope
Francis has shown himself to hold, propagate, or support, including “seven
propositions contradicting divinely revealed truth.”
One of the heresies the authors accuse Pope Francis of
committing is expressed in the following proposition: “A Christian believer can
have full knowledge of a divine law and voluntarily choose to break it in a
serious matter, but not be in a state of mortal sin as a result of this
action.” Many of these heretical statements touch on questions of marriage and
the family and are to be found in Amoris Laetitia,
but there is also a new claim made by Pope Francis in 2019 – namely, that the
“diversity of religions” is “willed by God” – that is listed in the open
In one section of the open letter, the authors list the
many prelates as well as lay people, who, despite openly dissenting from
Catholic doctrine and morals — either by word or by deed — have been by Pope
Francis either publicly praised (such as Emma Bonino) or raised to influential
positions (such as Cardinal Oscar Rodrigez Maradiaga). On this list are names
such as Cardinal Blase Cupich, Cardinal Godfried Danneels, Cardinal Donald
Wuerl, Bishop Gustavo Zanchetta, and Bishop Juan Barros.
The fact that Pope Francis never responded to the dubia (questions)
concerning Amoris Laetitia published
by Cardinals Carlo Caffarra, Joachim Meisner, Walter Brandmüller, and Raymond
Burke is mentioned. Moreover, the authors point out that Pope Francis has
changed the members of the Pontifical Academy for Life to such an extent that
orthodox Catholic experts have been replaced by heterodox experts, such as
Father Maurizio Chiodi.
Addressing the bishops of the world – among whom are to be
found all the present 222 cardinals – the authors of the open letter express
their gratitude toward those bishops who have defended Catholic doctrine by
their own personal witnesses.
“We recognise with gratitude that some among you have reaffirmed the truths
contrary to the heresies which we have listed, or else have warned of serious
dangers threatening the Church in this pontificate,” they state. Here, the
dubia cardinals, but also Cardinal Willem Eijk, are mentioned. The authors also
thank Cardinal Gerhard Müller for his Manifesto
The authors believe, however, that at this time in history,
six years into the Francis pontificate, more is needed, namely a more direct
and authoritative approach. They recognize their own limits when they tell the
bishops: “Despite the evidence that we have put forward in this letter, we
recognise that it does not belong to us to declare the pope guilty of the
delict of heresy in a way that would have canonical consequences for
“We therefore appeal to you as our spiritual fathers, vicars of Christ
within your own jurisdictions and not vicars of the Roman pontiff, publicly to
admonish Pope Francis to abjure the heresies that he has professed. Even
prescinding from the question of his personal adherence to these heretical
beliefs, the Pope’s behaviour in regard to the seven propositions contradicting
divinely revealed truth, mentioned at the beginning of this Letter, justifies
the accusation of the delict of heresy. It is beyond a doubt that he promotes
and spreads heretical views on these points. Promoting and spreading heresy
provides sufficient grounds in itself for an accusation of the delict of
heresy. There is, therefore, superabundant reason for the bishops to take the
accusation of heresy seriously and to try to remedy the situation,” they state.
The authors make it clear that it is up to the bishops to take action and
that they do not need a majority among the bishops to do so.
“Since Pope Francis has manifested heresy by his actions as well as by his
words, any abjuration must involve repudiating and reversing these actions,
including his nomination of bishops and cardinals who have supported these
heresies by their words or actions. Such an admonition is a duty of fraternal charity
to the Pope, as well as a duty to the Church,” they state.
“If – which God forbid! – Pope Francis does not bear the fruit of true
repentance in response to these admonitions, we request that you carry out your
duty of office to declare that he has committed the canonical delict of heresy
and that he must suffer the canonical consequences of this crime,” they add.
IN THE NAME OF ALLAH: THE END TIMES ‘UNIVERSAL
PEACE DOCUMENT’ POPE FRANCIS SIGNED WITH ISLAMIC LEADER MAKES NO REFERENCE OF
ANY KIND TO JESUS CHRIST OR THE BIBLE
Thus, the authors state, “these actions do not need to be
taken by all the bishops of the Catholic Church, or even by a majority of them.
A substantial and representative part of the faithful bishops of the Church
would have the power to take these actions.”

French President Emmanuel Macron says the Roman Catholic Notre Dame
cathedral should be rebuilt in line with diversity; architect suggests an
Islamic minaret be included
With each passing day, it begins to appear more
and more that the spectacular fire that engulfed the Roman Catholic Notre Dame
cathedral in Paris was set intentionally. President
Emmanuel Macron is now recommending the structure be rebuilt with Islamic
minarets to ‘reflect the diversity’ of France. Kinda crazy, yes? Well, actuall,
no. It makes perfect sense.
“And the kings of the earth, who have committed
fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for
her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, Standing afar off for the
fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty
city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.” Revelation
It makes perfect sense when you jog your memory
just a tad back to February of this year, where we witnessed the Roman Catholic
Pope Francis traveled to Abu Dhabi where he met with the leader of Sunni Islam,
Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb. What did he do there? Well, after Pope Francis kissed Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb
on the mouth, the two signed a historic declaration of fraternity,
calling for peace between nations, religions and races, in front of a global
audience of religious leaders from Christianity, Islam, Judaism and other
faiths. I do love me a little Rev 17 in the morning
to get my day going, how about you?
“The plan of salvation also includes those who
acknowledge the Creator, in the first place
amongst whom are the 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.” from the Catechism of the Catholic
Forgot about that, didn’t ya? That’s why NTEB is
here, to remind you and help you to connect the end times dots. Almost 7 weeks
to the day that Pope Francis signs a covenant with a main leader of Islam, one
of the world’s greatest symbols of Roman Catholicism suddenly burns. Now it
will be rebuilt to celebrate the pope’s One
World Religion of Chrislam by topping it with Muslim
minarets to show that it was conquered.
The burning down of Notre Dame was symbolic of the steady burn of French
culture, as the country’s globalist leaders continue to bow to everything
multiculturalism has to offer.
FROM JIHAD WATCH: France flagged “more than
78,000 people” as jihadist
security threats in 2017; three churches a day are attacked there;
anti-Semitism is so prevalent (and violent) in France that it prompted the
President of the Confederation of Jews in France to conclude that
“in a few decades, there will be no Jews in France.”
But none of these facts have troubled globalist
Emmanuel Macron (and company), whose focus is on making everyone feel welcome
in France, no matter what. Never mind those who choose not to integrate. This
can be partially explained due to the fact that Macron does not believe that
there is anything substantial to integrate into. He once declared that there is
such thing” as a true Frenchman or true Dane. So it follows that Macron has
a few ideas of his own about the rebuilding of the Notre Dame cathedral that
would reflect his undying commitment to “diversity,” even if they are callous
toward Christians and those who respect France’s heritage. Macron does not
believe that the rebuilding of the Notre Dame should be intended to restore the
glory of the ancient Gothic cathedral (with the painstaking labor that went
into it); instead, Macron wants it to be recreated to be “consistent with
our modern, diverse nation.”
Now what might that mean? Here’s an indicator:
an architect has proposed that the new structure include a minaret. A minaret
is a type of tower built into mosques as a visual focal point and used for the
Islamic call to prayer. The architect sees fit to “memorialize Algerians who protested
the French government in the 1960s” since “these victims of the state could be
memorialized by replacing the spire with – why not? – a graceful minaret.”
Given the obscene insensitivity displayed by Macron and others, it would come
as no surprise if indeed a minaret were installed at Notre Dame, as a
declaration of victory over France’s history and democracy.
Macron undoubtedly knows that Islamic countries
— among others — value their own history and culture, but he has no such
respect for French culture, and so it would follow that he would believe that
there is no culture in France to protect. The burning down of Notre Dame was
symbolic of the steady burn of French culture, as the country’s globalist
leaders continue to bow to everything multiculturalism has to offer.
“Macron says Notre Dame should be rebuilt consistent with the modern,
diverse France – and architects suggest a glass roof, steel spire and
of Europe, April 23, 2019:
Macron’s initial promise to restore the magnificent cathedral to its former
glory has been shoved aside. Now he says it will be rebuilt “consistent with
our modern, diverse nation”, and at the same time the French Government has
announced an international competition to redesign the Notre Dame spire.
After the announcement designers haven’t missed
the opportunity to respond with their ideas, proposing that it should not be
faithfully restored, but rebuilt with “contemporary” features such as a glass
roof, steel spire, or even a minaret.
The Telegraph published an article claiming it would be a “travesty” to
restore Notre Dame, while Rolling Stone quoted a Harvard architecture historian
as saying that the burning of a building “so overburdened with meaning… feels
like an act of liberation.”
Lord Norman Foster, arguably Britain’s most
famous modern architect, has unveiled a design topping the ancient cathedral
with a glass and steel canopy with a featureless glass and steel spire, which
he describes as “a work of art about light” which would be “contemporary and
very spiritual and capture the confident spirit of the time”.
Ian Ritchie, a modern architect most famous for the so-called Spire of Dublin
– a metal spike erected in the Irish capital – is mulling a proposal along
similar lines, which he describes as “a refracting, super-slender reflecting
crystal to heaven” or a “beautiful contemporary tracery of glass crystals and
stainless steel” – i.e. a featureless glass and steel spire.
Perhaps most controversial is a proposal in Domus, the architecture magazine,
by Tom Wilkinson, for the fallen spire to be replaced with an Islamic minaret
Pope Francis the reformer is being challenged by his conservative
predecessor – who now has a far-right backing including Steve Bannon
Sat 20 Apr 2019 03.00 EDT
Last modified on Sat 20 Apr 2019 03.37 EDT
In his pre-Easter address to pilgrims
gathering in Rome, Pope
Francis highlighted Jesus’s words as he died on the cross on the first Good
Friday: “Forgive them, Father, for they know not what they do.” We all, the
Argentinian pontiff stressed, need to find the courage to forgive those who
have wronged us.
Those remarks sparked speculation about who exactly Francis was struggling
to forgive. Top of most lists in Rome this Easter is his predecessor, Pope
Emeritus Benedict XVI, who decided
in 2013 to break with 600 years of work-unto-death papal tradition and
retire. This opened Catholicism’s door to the breath of fresh air that is
Francis. And, for the past six years, as the winds of change have blown through
the church, Benedict has by and large kept a respectful silence, ignoring the
ever louder pleas of traditionalist Catholics who want the 92-year-old to join
them in opposing Francis’s reform agenda.
That changed earlier this month, when Benedict published a 6,000-word
article in a German magazine. It made headlines by blaming the clerical
abuse scandal on the moral relativism of the 1960s sexual revolution, and the
“homosexual cliques” that allowed this “lawlessness” to infect seminaries. It
is a line of argument that directly – and, conservative cardinals insist,
pointedly – contradicts all Francis’s efforts (including a summit of world
bishops in the Vatican in February) to tackle the damage done by paedophile
priests by pointing the finger at a dominant culture within the church; a
culture that encourages priests and bishops to operate as if they are above the
moral guidelines they preach, and regard themselves as beyond the sanction of
Neither explanation has convinced some lifelong Catholics who, as a result
this Easter, will stay away from church services. The Francis version at least
has the virtue of not flying in the face of all contemporary research, which
doesn’t conflate sexual attraction between consenting adults of the same gender
with the brutal and systematic violation of children.
But what Benedict’s intervention – and apparent rebuke of his successor –
mostly lays bare is how hard it is proving for an absolute monarchy like the
Catholic church to operate when it has not one, but two living popes. Indeed it
explains why, for six centuries, papal retirement was regarded as not an
Perhaps if Francis and Benedict were of like mind, it might just work, but
for all their posing as good neighbours (the emeritus pope lives within the
grounds of the Vatican), the two of them represent opposite poles of Catholicism. Where
Francis wants to work with the modern world, Benedict sees the church as
immovable. Where Francis was a pastoral figure and “outsider” throughout his
clerical career before his election, Benedict was a dusty academic and Vatican
“insider”. And where Francis believes he inherited a church in crisis (and not
just over clerical abuse), Benedict is convinced that he and his predecessor
John Paul II had settled all the outstanding questions about its future in
perpetuity (eg restating the ban on female priests).
That chasm between the two popes is not just an administrative matter for
them to manage with as good a grace as possible (and the normally relaxed
Francis was looking pretty on edge when he paid
a birthday visit to Benedict earlier this month). There is a small but
vocal minority of ultra-conservative Catholics who are doing their damnedest to
tempt Benedict out of purdah so he can lead their attack on Francis.
These traditionalist figures, who congregate round retired cardinal Raymond
Burke, (sacked from his Vatican job by Francis), have their own websites
and journals, especially in the United States. They look on in horror, and not
just at Francis’s drive to relegate sexual morality down the list of priorities
for his church. Their social conservatism is matched by political concerns.
Where Francis is prophetically pro-refugee, pro-environment and pro-global
cooperation, this wing of the church most emphatically is not.
The ramifications go far beyond the fraught politics of Catholicism. There
are two more prominent figures the pope might have had in mind when he was
recommending forgiveness this Easter: former Donald Trump right-hand man Steve
Bannon, and Italy’s far-right interior minister, Matteo Salvini. Both men are
cradle Catholics, so much so that Salvini recently tried to pass legislation to
put crucifixes in all public spaces in Italy. The Vatican fiercely
resisted this suggestion, believing it to be a transparent ruse to turn a
religious symbol into a party political vote-winner.
Bannon has long made plain that he regards the current leader of his church
to an enemy. “He’s the administrator of the church, and he’s also a
politician,” he tells NBC in a broadcast interview this Easter. “This is the
problem … He’s constantly putting all the faults in the world on the populist
Populism and nationalism, the pope has warned, is what brought the continent
Adolf Hitler. “Fear can drive you crazy,” he said on a recent trip to Panama.
“But you can go round Europe and it’s [populism] catching fire,” objects
Bannon on NBC. “The pope is just wrong.”
There is a profound irony here, because Bannon is the sort of
ultra-traditionalist Catholic who, when Benedict John Paul II was in charge of
the show, was fond of telling more liberal Catholics (who every survey shows
represent the majority of Church members in the developed world) to stop their
complaining and do as they were told by the successor of Saint Peter, who Jesus
handpicked for leadership. Under Francis, though, Bannon is getting a dose of
his own medicine. And spitting it out.
No longer welcome in the White House, Bannon has come to Europe to stir up
the far right. And that includes Catholic traditionalists, whom he courts
through his links with the Dignitatis Humanae religious institute outside Rome,
of which he is patron and Cardinal Burke the president.
Salvini is one of Bannon’s closest allies and is leading the Italian
government’s clampdown on migrants. So strongly does he object to Francis’s
championing of the rights and human dignity of the same migrants, that Salvini
has even appeared in public brandishing a T-shirt with the slogan, “Benedict is
This is a new take on the “birther” slur that Bannon and Trump directed at
Barack Obama, making up tales of him not being born in the US to claim he
wasn’t really the president. Now Francis’s legitimacy is being undermined by
the suggestion that Benedict didn’t have the right to retire and so remains the
Knowing that such nonsense is being pedalled publicly, you cannot help but
speculate what Benedict intended by publishing his letter earlier this month.
Was he signalling that he was throwing his lot in with the Francis-haters as
they have been urging him to do? Or was it rather the small conservative circle
around this frail, elderly, ailing pontiff who were using his name to fight
their own battles?
Whatever the truth, no one can be in any doubt this Easter that there are
two rival camps, if not yet rival popes, fighting it out for ultimate power at
God’s business address on Earth.
Pope Francis joined the Moroccan monarch in declaring the city the “common patrimony” of Christians, Jews and Muslims, on the first day of a visit to the North African country. The spiritual leader of the world’s 1.3 billion Catholics was invited by King Mohammed VI for the sake of “inter-religious dialogue,” according to Moroccan authorities. The statement Thursday made no mention of any Jewish link to Jerusalem.
Francis and Moroccan King Mohammed VI called on Saturday for Jerusalem to be
preserved as a symbol of peaceful coexistence where Jews, Muslims and
Christians can be allowed to worship freely.
Just like everything that comes out of the mouth of the Roman pope, it was a
tiny nugget of truth encompassed about with layers and layers of lies. Yes,
Jerusalem is claimed by Jews, Christians and Muslims, absolutely, but of those
three only the first two are mentioned in the bible as being ordained by God.
The Muslims are the bastard children of Abraham, and are specifically mentioned
in the Bible as have none inheritance. The children of Abraham
through Hagar are to be “cast out” as we see here:
“For it is written, that
Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. But he
who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was
by promise. Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman
and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of
the freewoman.” Galatians 4:22,23,30 (KJV)
So that takes care of Lie #1 of Pope Francis, let’s move on to the second
whopper he told in Morocco. This idea that Jerusalem cannot belong solely to
the Jews because it “has to be shared” is another oft-repeated fact that is
just not so. The bible says that the Battle of Armageddon, seen below in
Joel 3, is fought over the fact that somebody, namely Antichrist, has “parted”
God’s land of Israel in general, and Jerusalem in particular. That’s right,
Jerusalem belongs to God.
“For, behold, in those
days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and
Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the
valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my
heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my
land.” Joel 3:1,2 (KJV)
Isn’t it funny how whenever the Roman pontiff talks about Jerusalem, he
never mentions that it is the capital of Israel and as such is not up to be
shared by whoever feels like grabbing a piece of it? He speaks of Jerusalem like
a commodity that can be bought and sold, and indeed it will be. By Antichrist
in the time of Jacob’s trouble.
in Morocco urges Jerusalem be protected for all religions
FROM THE TIME OF ISRAEL: Pope Francis joined the Moroccan monarch in declaring the
city the “common patrimony” of Christians, Jews and Muslims, on the first day
of a visit to the North African country. The spiritual leader of the world’s
1.3 billion Catholics was invited by King Mohammed VI for the sake of
“inter-religious dialogue,” according to Moroccan authorities.
In a joint statement, the two
leaders said Jerusalem was “common patrimony of humanity and especially the
followers of the three monotheistic religions,” during the pontiff’s visit to
“The specific multi-religious
character, the spiritual dimension and the particular cultural identity of
Jerusalem… must be protected and promoted,” they said in the declaration
released by the Vatican.
The statement contrasted sharply with a joint communique put out by Mohammed and Jordan’s
King Abdullah on Thursday vowing to safeguard Jerusalem against attempts to
change its Islamic or Christian identity.
The statement Thursday made no
mention of any Jewish link to Jerusalem.
Improving relations with other religions has been a priority for the Argentine
pontiff, whose papacy has been marred by a wave of child sex abuse allegations
ANTICHRIST: POPE FRANCIS TELLS
CATHOLICS IN ROME THAT A ‘PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP’ WITH JESUS IS ‘DANGEROUS AND
Addressing thousands of Moroccans who had braved the rain to attend the welcome
ceremony, Francis said it was “essential to oppose fanaticism.”
He stressed the need for
“appropriate preparation of future religious guides”, ahead of meeting trainee
imams later on Saturday.
Catholics are a tiny minority in the country where 99 percent of the
population is Muslim. The king is revered across West Africa as “commander of
Speaking at the ceremony at the Tour
Hassan mosque and nearby mausoleum in Rabat, Francis defended “freedom of
conscience” and “religious freedom.”
“Live as brothers,” he told a crowd
of around 25,000, after arriving from the airport in his Popemobile, passing
rows of Moroccan and Vatican City flags.
A visit between a pope and the man considered a prophet by millions of Latter-day Saints would have been unimaginable to leaders and members in both churches 50 years ago. Clandestine olive branches and decades of détente were necessary, according to sources from both faiths interviewed for this story. That is exactly what has happened. In fact, today’s meeting is a culmination of a web of deepening and expanding alliances between the Latter-day Saints and the Roman Catholic Church and its many sister organizations.
Pope Francis of the Roman Catholic Church and Prophet President Russell M.
Nelson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints met today at the
Vatican in the first-ever face-to-face discussion between the heads of the two
During his reign as both king of Vatican City and as the
pope of the Catholic Church, Jorge Mario Bergoglio has been widening his tent
and making preparations for the coming One World Religion of Antichrist. From
pawns like Rick Warren who gushingly calls him ‘our pope’,
all the way up to signing a ‘Universal
Peace Document‘ with a high-ranking leader of Islam, Pope Francis is a
man on an end
“For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath
of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with
her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her
delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my
people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her
plagues.” Revelation 18:3,4 (KJV)
Now a secret, closed-door meeting with the head ‘prophet’ of
the Mormon Church, Russell Nelson, reveals the expansion of another end
times partnership as the Vatican adds more pieces to their end times
chessboard. The Roman harlot is on the move, and trading in the souls in men.
Pope Francis meets with Mormon President Nelson in the Vatican
FROM THE DESERET NEWS: “The differences in doctrine are
real and they’re important,” President Nelson said afterward as he stood just
outside St. Peter’s Square, “but they’re not nearly as important as the things
we have in common — our concern for human suffering, the importance of
religious liberty for all of society, and the importance of building bridges of
friendship instead of building walls of segregation.”
The two world religious leaders shared a belief that faith in God brings
morality and stability to society. “If we have a godless society, we have a
rudderless ship,” President Nelson said.
The pope extended the invitation for a private audience to the Latter-day
Saint leader in conjunction with President Nelson’s trip this weekend to Italy,
where he will dedicate thehistory-making
new Rome Italy Temple.
The two men met for 30-35 minutes and also discussed their mutual concern
for the youth in their churches, their concern about secularization and the
desire for people to worship God, President Nelson said.
President M. Russell Ballard, president of the Quorum
of the Twelve Apostles, joined President Nelson in the meeting, along
with Elder Massimo De Feo, a General Authority Seventy, and Elder Alessandro
Dini Ciacci, an Area Seventy. President Nelson’s executive secretary, Mark
Woodruff, also attended.
The pope presented President Nelson with two gifts, his declarations on the
family and on the Islamic faith. President Nelson gave the pope a Lladro
figurine of the Christus statue and a copy of “The Family: A Proclamation to
After the meeting, the Latter-day Saint leaders smiled as
they walked arm in arm down Via
della Conciliazione — the Road of the Conciliation — to address a large
media contingent with the iconic St. Peter’s Basilica in the background.
The most senior Latter-day Saint leader to meet with a pope before today was
President Henry B. Eyring, who was greeted by Pope Francis in November 2014
when both spoke at an international marriage summit at the Vatican. President
Eyring then was the first counselor in the First Presidency.
A visit between a pope and the man considered a prophet by millions of
Latter-day Saints would have been unimaginable to leaders and members in both
churches 50 years ago. Clandestine olive branches and decades of détente were
necessary, according to sources from both faiths interviewed for this story. That
is exactly what has happened. In fact, today’s meeting is a culmination of a
web of deepening and expanding alliances between the Latter-day Saints and the
Roman Catholic Church and its many sister organizations.
That growing relationship has intensified during the past
decade, resulting in collaborations that now have the two churches working
side-by-side all over the world on projects vast and tiny.
The Deseret News conducted more than 20 interviews with people from both
faiths around the world, from Bosnia to Rome and from Salt Lake City to Norway,
to provide a definitive look at how the churches’ combined efforts are not only
helping to resolve differences between their own members but delivering
emergency humanitarian aid to some of the world’s most vulnerable people
many at the U.S.-Mexico border — as well as working to defend
religious liberty and to bolster families.
“We explained to His Holiness that we work side by side, that we have
projects with Catholic Relief Services all over the world, in over 43
countries,” President Ballard said. “We’ve been shoulder-to-shoulder as
partners, and try to relieve suffering, trying to help people that are
struggling. He was very interested in that and was very cordial , very kind to
Rome and Salt Lake City
On Thursday, Catholics and Latter-day Saints indeed worked
side-by-side to help the homeless and refugees in their respective
headquarters, Rome and Salt Lake City.
That appeared impossible in the 1950s when, fearing their own congregations
would be scandalized if church members knew they were meeting, the leader of
the Latter-day Saints came to Salt Lake City’s Holy Cross Hospital for
conversations with the head of the Salt Lake City Catholic diocese.
The official logo of the Pope’s visit was chosen from about 50 entries in a competition. An explanatory note accompanying the logo’s release says that a cross and a crescent in the logo are symbols of Christianity and Islam which highlight the interreligious relations between Christians and Muslims. In fact, during the 2-day trip, Pope Francis will meet the leader of Moroccan Muslims, 800 years after the meeting between St. Francis of Assisi and Sultan Al-Malik al-Kāmil of Egypt.
The Vatican released the logo for Pope Francis’ Apostolic Journey to
Morocco, whose theme is hope. “Servant of Hope” is the theme of the Pope’s
visit to Morocco on March 30-31.
Catholics have gotten mad at me over the years whenever I
talk about how the Vatican is pushing the hybrid bastard religion
of Chrislam, which is to say the merging of apostate Christianity with
the religion of castaway Ishmael, who is the father is Islam. Yet just this
week, the Vatican rolled out a new logo for Pope Francis’ upcoming visit to the
Muslim nation of Morocco, and what is the design? Chrislam.
“And there came one of the seven angels which had
the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew
unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many
waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and
the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her
fornication.” Revelation 17:1,2 (KJV)
The pope’s new logo shows a New Age style cross that is
encircled about with the crescent moon of Islam, with the colors of yellow and
white for the Vatican, and red and green for Islam. That, my friends, is not
only the pope’s new logo, it will also serve as the official logo for Chrislam.
I am sure Rick
Warren had a hand in all this, just gotta find a link to prove it. If
you come across one please send it to me.
Vatican releases logo for Pope Francis’ visit to Morocco
FROM VATICAN NEWS: The Holy Father is making the Apostolic
Visit in response to the invitation of King Mohammed VI and the Bishops of the
country. The trip to the Muslim-majority nation includes the cities of
Rabat and Casablanca, and will be the Pope’s 26th outside Italy.
The official logo of the Pope’s visit was chosen from about
50 entries in a competition. An explanatory note accompanying the logo’s
release says that a cross and a crescent in the logo are symbols of
Christianity and Islam which highlight the interreligious relations between
Christians and Muslims.
In fact, during the 2-day trip, Pope Francis will meet the
leader of Moroccan Muslims, 800 years after the meeting between St. Francis of
Assisi and Sultan Al-Malik al-Kāmil of Egypt.
The logo has the colours of the two countries: green and red for Morocco,
yellow and white (background) for the Vatican.
Under Pope Francis’ name is the motto of the visit:
“Servant of Hope” because the Pope is known as the Servant of the Servants of
God. The motto is also the title of the pastoral letter that the Regional
Episcopal Conference of North Africa (known by its French acronym CERNA) gave
to Pope Francis during its last ‘ad limina ’ visit to Rome in 2015.
“Morocco” is written in Arabic to honour the country that is hosting the
Prior to the Morocco visit, the Pope is scheduled to make a trip to the
United Arab Emirates on February 3-5.
Addressing the Diplomatic Corps on Monday in the Vatican, Pope Francis said
that his visit to the 2 predominantly Muslim countries, “represent two
important opportunities to advance interreligious dialogue and mutual
understanding between the followers of both religions, in this year that marks
the eight-hundredth anniversary of the historic meeting between Saint Francis
of Assisi and Sultan al-Malik al-Kāmil.”
