LIVESTREAM: According to news reports, President Biden who has strongly advocated for the expansion of legalized and government-funded abortion, transgenderism, and has officiated gay-marriage was told by Pope Francis at their 10/29/2021 meeting at the Vatican that he should keep receiving Holy Eucharist. A recommendation which is not only a violation of canon law but of sacred scripture and tradition; for a manifest grave sinner to receive the Holy Eucharist unworthily.
Based upon the three duties of the Pope that we can glean from Sacred Scripture, is there evidence that Pope Francis is actually the successor of the first Pope, Saint Peter, or he is just a duly elected Pope, operating as an administrator? After watching the video, what do you think?
To be sure, Traditionis Custodes, is nothing but another sorry bullet shot in the direction of those who Pope Francis calls rigid, and we will suffer this blow because it will only unite us closer to Him who shed His blood first.
This is my critical review of the new documentary on Pope Francis, “Francesco,” including his comments on homosexual civil unions and his statement that God created people to be gay. “Francesco” was directed by Evgeny Afineevsky – francescofilm.com
n 4 February 2019 Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Ahamad al-Tayyib, signed a document on “Fratellanza Umana per la Pace Mondiale e la convivenza comune… Human Fraternity for world peace and living together”. The one paragraph of …
hen four patriarchs, twenty-two cardinals, and eighty bishops gathered together in the Cathedral of Pisa under the presidency of Cardinal Gui de Malesset, Bishop of Palestrina, their goal was not just to end the Western Schism, but return the seat …
That being said, I honestly don’t think this document will have any substantive impact, unless Pope Francis reigns for another seven plus years or the next Pope is a Progressive like him. The reason why I say that is because if you just look around, you’ll see that the dye has already been cast.
In the strongest words possible, I vehemently agree that this video is an offense against God by equating Him with Allah and Buddah and reducing His Holy Glory to subjective-love, and it does along with the narrative that I’ve been building that the Promotion of Indifferentism is a Pillar in the Reform of Francis.
I’m open to hearing other thoughts about this new Ecclesiology by Pope Francis, but from what I’ve read, it seems to me that this new ‘Gerontocracy’ Synodal Church no longer fits all (arguable ‘any’) of the Theological Marks of the Church that Jesus promised that the gates of Hell would not prevail against.
The Holy Spirit will prevail in His Catholic Church – He always does! As for the Reformation of Pope Francis, this failed Synod on the Family may have weakened his Papacy forever. It all depends on how his upcoming Apostolic Exhortation will be received having found no consensus on issues up for discussion.
Pope Francis has made it abundantly clear that he is indifferent, if not altogether, uninterested in people converting to Catholicism.
After Pope Francis published his Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium, which, in part, attempted to highlight the concern that the rich should have for the poor and the marginalized, he became known in conservative circles as the Pope of the Redistribution of …
While we are on safe ground theologically as Christians if we want to believe that Jesus felt dereliction, we cannot believe that God lost hope; that God despaired.
Evangelization says that I have something worthwhile for you to hear that might change your life for the better if you respond to it, and when they do positively respond to what they heard us say, we have proselytized; we have made a convert.
As interesting as the Reform of Francis will be, the thing to remember is that they are only a blip on the screen of what the Holy Spirit is doing, and we have to continue to distinguish between reforms of substance (i.e. suppression of the Latin Mass and assignment of like-minded Bishops) versus reforms of style (big tent ecumenism and no red shoes). The reforms of style won’t last past his papacy, but the reforms of substance may.
Rather than saying that, “celibacy was established in the tenth century,” what Pope Francis probably meant to say (charitable me)/should have said (me being quite frank) was that celibacy for the clergy was officially mandated as a discipline in the 12th century by an ecumenical council for the first time.
Over the past few days I’ve taken notice some international interest in my ‘Dichotomy of Judgement’ article. I don’t know if this ‘Don’t Criticize Pope Francis Police’ is an American phenomenon or not, but the translated articles below offer some color of what some Italians and French are thinking about Pope Francis’ non-judgmental theology.
There are three big problems with what Pope Francis said in his homily. Altogether the Pope’s non-judgmental theology tends towards indifferentism and apathy towards sin, in that he would have us just ignore what everyone is doing and mind our own business and, essentially, not love.
Modern Catholic Comic. Lesia asks Brock what he thinks about Pope Francis telling a woman living in ‘sin’ that she can still receive communion.
The letter I mailed to Pope Francis in March of 2014.
The Reformation of Francis means to remake the Catholic Church in his image; a feat that no previous Pope has dared to exercise to this extent. More than that, he is now working to solidify his makeover of the Church by appointing Bishops who share his vision.
You know it’s gotten substantially worrisome when you get an email-blast from the heretical and dissenting Catholic organization Call to Action stating how encouraged they are “by Pope Francis’s remarks in his interview with Rev. Antonio Sporado, S. J.”
Back in July (2013) Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia was responsible for more than a few headlines in the Catholic blogosphere, when he mentioned in an interview in Rio de Janeiro during World Youth Day that the right-wing of the Catholic Church …
Whereas, Benedict sought to challenge us to grow closer to Christ through a deeper encounter of Him in the Gospels, Francis is challenging us to grow closer to the Lord through a deeper and more meaningful encounter with Him in the needs of our neighbor.
