HERESIES AND ERRORS OF ANTIPOPE FRANCIS

PRIVATE EPISTLE #24


"The practice of the Church has always been the same, as is shown by the unanimous teaching of the Fathers, who were wont to hold as outside Catholic communion, and alien to the Church, whoever would recede in the least degree from any point of doctrine proposed by her authoritative Magisterium. Epiphanius, Augustine, Theodoret, drew up a long list of the heresies of their times. St. Augustine notes that other heresies may spring up, to a single one of which, should any one give his assent, he is by the very fact cut off from Catholic unity. "No one who merely disbelieves in all (these heresies) can for that reason regard himself as a Catholic or call himself one. For there may be or may arise some other heresies, which are not set out in this work of ours, and, if any one holds to one single one of these he is not a Catholic" (S. Augustinus, De Haeresibus, n. 88)." (Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum, 1896). [Therefore, all heretics are alien to the Church, and are not Catholic, including heretics like Antipope Francis].



“No one, therefore, unless in communion with Peter can share in his authority, since it is absurd to imagine that he who is outside can command in the Church.” (Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum (#15), June 29, 1896).  [Therefore, no heretic like Francis can be a Pope or rule over Catholics].

ACTS OR STATEMENTS OF HERESY OR ERROR BY ANTIPOPE FRANCIS

TRUE DOGMAS THAT ARE DENIED BY THE ACT OR STATEMENT

REJECTION OF PROSELYTISM/CONVERSION TO CATHOLICISM

He [Francis] smiles again and replies: "Proselytism is solemn nonsense, it makes no sense. We need to get to know each other, listen to each other and improve our knowledge of the world around us.”

“… the Church must do something, must change, must convert in order to become mother.  She must be fruitful!… This is not a question of seeking to proselytize, no, no!  To go ring the bell: ‘Would you like to come to this association called the Catholic Church?…’… The Church – Benedict XVI told us – does not grow through proselytism…”

On July 27, 2014 Antipope Francis conducted an interview with the Argentine weekly “Viva”.  In this interview he outlined ten suggestions for “happiness”.  Of course, none of them was to believe the gospel for salvation.  Instead, one of his tips was to not proselytize or attempt to convert others to the Catholic Faith, and also to “respect” idolatrous beliefs that cause their adherents to be damned forever. “Don't proselytize; respect others' beliefs. "We can inspire others through witness so that one grows together in communicating. But the worst thing of all is religious proselytism, which paralyzes: 'I am talking with you in order to persuade you,' No. Each person dialogues, starting with his and her own identity. The church grows by attraction, not proselytizing," the pope said.”

On July 26, 2014, Francis answered questions from apostate false “priests” from “the Diocese of Caserta”.  Francis recounts a story a “priest” told him about a woman who left “Catholicism” and joined a Protestant sect.  The “priest” told Francis that the woman (now a Protestant) kept a statue of The Blessed Virgin.  The Protestant woman said that she now keeps the statue in the closet, for fear that her Protestant “pastor” might find it.  Francis said the “priest” told him that the woman has not returned to “the Catholic Church”, and that “she continues to go to Protestant” services.  Francis then says: “And he did not go beyond that, and he did not urge her to return to the Catholic Church.  It is that prudent closeness, which knows just how far one can reach… Proselytism is a trap… And Pope Benedict has a beautiful expression.  He said it in Aparecida but I believe he repeated it elsewhere: ‘The Church grows not by proselytism, but by attraction.’”

"So, Venerable Brethren, it is clear why this Apostolic See has never allowed its subjects to take part in the assemblies of non-Catholics: for the union of Christians can only be promoted by promoting the return to the one true Church of Christ of those who are separated from it, for in the past they have unhappily left it. (Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos, 1928).


"When We consider the countless peoples who are TO BE called to the one fold and to the one haven of salvation by the preaching of these missionaries, We address to the heavenly Prince of Pastors the words of Ecclesiasticus: "For as thou hast been sanctified in us in their sight, so thou shalt be magnified among them in our presence, that they may know thee, as we also have known thee. that there is no God beside thee. O Lord." (Evangelii Praecones, Pope Pius XII, 1951).


Pope Pius XII, Fulgens Radiatur (# 11), March 21, 1947: “… he [St. Benedict] went south and arrived at a fort ‘called Cassino situated on the side of a high mountain; on this stood an old temple where Apollo was worshipped by the foolish country people, according to the custom of the ancient heathens.  Around it likewise grew groves, in which even till that time the mad multitude of infidels used to offer their idolatrous sacrifices.  The man of God coming to that place broke the idol, overthrew the altar, burned the groves, and of the temple of Apollo made a chapel of St. Martin.  Where the profane altar had stood he built a chapel of St. John; and by continual preaching he converted many of the people thereabout.’”


Pope Leo XIII, Ad Extremas (#1), June 24, 1893: “… the blessed Apostle Thomas who is rightly called the founder of preaching the Gospel to the Hindus.  Then, there is Francis XavierThrough his extraordinary perseverance, he converted hundreds of thousands of Hindus from the myths and vile superstitions of the Brahmans to the true religion.”


St. Francis Xavier [regarding the heathen children he had converted to the Catholic faith, +1543): “These children… show an ardent love for the Divine law, and an extraordinary zeal for our holy religion and imparting it to others.  Their hatred for idolatry is marvelous.  They get into feuds with the heathens about it… The children run at the idols, upset them, dash them down, break them to pieces, spit on them, trample on them, kick them about, and in short heap on them every possible outrage.”


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


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

PRAYING TO NON-CATHOLIC FALSE GODS/ATTENDING ASSEMBLIES AND SERVICES OF NON-CATHOLICS









Antipope Francis Meeting and Praying along with Protestant Heretics at a Protestant ceremony, showing he believes what they are doing is well and good










Antipope Francis lighting Jewish Menorah at Jewish Assembly with a Jewish yarmulke on his head.


In September 2004, Francis participated in a Jewish service inside a synagogue. Antipope Francis participated in a Jewish service inside a Synagogue in 2004 and on Nov. 9, 2005 Francis had another service in a Basilica commemorating deceased Jews. This included Francis lighting a candle in honor of them.


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

On June 7, 2010: Francis visited the Jewish Center in Argentina and called Jews “our elder brothers” and “the chosen people of God”. He also prayed in front of list of deceased Jews in order to honor them. June 7, 2010: Antipope Francis visited Jewish Center and calls them the “chosen people”


On October 11, 2012 Francis gave Rabbi Abraham Skorka - who is a well-known supporter of homosexuality – an honorary degree at a “Catholic” university. After the rabbi received the degree, he said: “We are waiting for the Messiah, but in order for him to come we have to prepare the land…” So the Rabbi explicitly rejected the Messiah Jesus Christ right in front of Francis.


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


August 2, 2005 Francis prayed before dead body of the Muslim president of the Islamic Center of Argentina. The body was placed east toward Mecca. The Islamic imam recited verses from the Koran and asked for blessings from Muhammad. Francis said: “With my prayer I ask the creator, the most merciful to repay him for all the good he did”.


Antipope Francis attended a convention of Pentecostal protestant heretics on July 28, 2014.

“I would like to thank all those who in different ways took part in the Vigil of Prayer and Fasting yesterday evening.  I thank all the people who joined in, adding the offering of their sufferings.  I thank the civil authorities, as well as the members of other Christian communities and of other religions, and the men and women of good will who on this occasion lived moments of prayer, of fasting and of reflection.” - Antipope Francis September 8, 2013 Appeal after the Angelus

Francis’ June 8, 2014 reflection on “the meeting for peace” in the Holy Land – which would take place later in the day in the Vatican gardens: “Dear Brothers and Sisters, As you know, this evening at the Vatican, the Presidents of Israel and Palestine will join me and my brother, Bartholomaios, the [Schismatic] Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople, to invoke God…”

Francis’ words on June 28, 2014 when he received a delegation of the Schismatic “Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople”: “The Solemnity of the Holy Patrons of the Church of Rome, the Apostles Peter and Paul, once again gives me the joy of greeting a delegation from the sister Church of Constantinople.  In extending to you a warm welcome, I express my gratitude to the Ecumenical Patriarch, His Holiness Bartholomaios I, and to the Holy Synod for having sent you to share with us in the joy of this feast.  I have vivid and moving memories of my recent meetings with my beloved brother Bartholomaios… I consider it a special gift from the Lord that we were able to venerate the holy places together and to pray at each other’s side

“…That false opinion which considers all religions to be more or less good and praiseworthy… 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 [i.e. COMMITTING APOSTASY]So, Venerable Brethren, it is clear why this Apostolic See has never allowed its subjects to take part in the assemblies of non-Catholics: for the union of Christians can only be promoted by promoting the return to the one true Church of Christ of those who are separated from it, for in the past they have unhappily left it. - (Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos #2, #10, 1928).


“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.” (Pope Pius XI Mortalium Animos #11)

Pope Pius VI, Charitas Quae (#29-31), April 13, 1791: “Keep as far from you as possible all intrusion and schism... Above all, avoid and condemn the sacrilegious intruders... Keep away from all intruders, whether called archbishops, bishops, or parish priests; do not hold communion with them especially in divine worship.”

Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitium (# 9): “There can be nothing more dangerous than those heretics who admit nearly the whole cycle of doctrine, and yet by one word, as with a drop of poison, infect the real and simple faith taught by our Lord and handed down by Apostolic tradition.

Pope Gregory XVI, Commissum divinitus (# 11), May 17, 1835: “… whoever dares to depart from the unity of Peter might understand that he no longer shares in the divine mystery…‘Whoever eats the Lamb outside of this house is unholy.’”

Pope Pius IX, Amantissimus (# 3), April 8, 1862: “… whoever eats of the Lamb and is not a member of the Church, has profaned.”

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

Council of Carthage: “One must neither pray nor sing psalms with heretics, and whoever shall communicate with those who are cut off from the communion of the Church, whether clergy or layman: let him be excommunicated.”

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

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

1917 Code of Canon Law, Canon 823: “Mass may not be said in churches of heretics or schismatics, even though they were in the past properly consecrated or blessed.”

Pope Innocent III, Fourth Lateran Council, 1215: “Moreover, we determine to subject to excommunication believers who receive, defend, or support heretics.”

1917 Code of Canon Law, Canon 1258.1: “It is unlawful for the faithful to assist in any active manner, or to take part in the sacred services of non-Catholics.”

In 1636 the Sacred Congregation for the Propagation of the Faith decreed that Catholics are not only banned from singing an acclamation for the schismatic Patriarchs of Constantinople but added that since the Patriarchs were also heretics they deserved to be cursed instead. (Rev. Szal, Communication of Catholics with Schismatics, CUA Canon Law Studies 264, Washington, CUA 1948, p. 182.)

St. Robert Bellarmine, Doctor of the Church, De Romano Pontifice, lib. IV, c. 9, no. 15.: “For men are not bound, or able to read hearts; BUT WHEN THEY SEE THAT SOMEONE IS A HERETIC BY HIS EXTERNAL WORKS, THEY JUDGE HIM TO BE A HERETIC PURE AND SIMPLE, AND CONDEMN HIM AS A HERETIC.”

1917 Code of Canon Law, Canon 1325§1: “Obligation to Profess the Faith. The faithful are bound to profess their faith openly whenever under the circumstances silence, evasion, or their manner of acting would otherwise implicitly amount to a denial of the faith, or would involve contempt of religion, an offense to God, or scandal to the neighbor.”

Pope Pius IX, Sept. 16, 1864, letter to the English Episcopate (CH 254): “That Christians and ecclesiastics should pray... under the direction of heretics and, what is worse, according to an intention which is radically impregnated and vitiated with heresy [such as a heretical mass presided over by a heretical priest that prays in communion with the apostate Vatican II sect and its antipope], is absolutely impossible to tolerate!”

Holy Office Decree, June 22, 1859: “Communication with heretics can be either in a condemned doctrine, or in rites and other signs indicative of adherence to a false [non-Catholic] sect, with the accompanying scandal of the faithful, to whom the Church therefore forbids this communion, lest the faith be lost or endangered. Whence St. John the Evangelist strictly commands: ‘if anyone comes to you and does not bring this (i.e., the Catholic) doctrine, do not receive him into the house, or say to him, Welcome. For he who says to him, Welcome, is sharer in his evil works.’ II John 20. These words evidently imply that everything is forbidden that is expressed by a welcome, in so far as it constitutes liturgical actions instituted to signify ecclesiastical unity. Wherefore we read that a law was enacted by the Fathers of the Council of Carthage ‘against praying or singing with heretics’ as is cited by Benedict XIV. It is therefore illicit to invite heretics to a choir during sacred services, to sing alternately with them, to give them peace or sacred ashes and other such tokens of external worship [with or in front of them], which are rightly and reasonably regarded as signs of interior bond and agreement. This is to be done neither in the active sense, namely by giving them such things, or in the passive sense, by accepting from them in their sacred services.” (SO Instruction Communicatio, 22 June 1859, in Collectanea S. Cong. de Prop. Fide 1:1176)

FALSE RELIGIONS, THEIR FALSE RITES, AND THEIR ADHERENTS ARE RESPECTED, ESTEEMED, AND PRAISED

In On Heaven and Earth, page 236 Francis wrote about new religious belief systems and movements. He stated: “I am respectful of all new spiritual proposals… Surviving the passage of time is the major test of spiritual purity.” [Therefore Francis overtly states false religions are good and praiseworthy, and most any religion that is old is pure]

“To Muslims throughout the World.  It gives me great pleasure to greet you as you celebrate ‘Id al-Fitr’, so concluding this month of Ramadan, dedicated mainly to fasting, prayer and almsgiving.  It is a tradition by now that, on this occasion, the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue sends you a message of good wishes, together with a proposed theme for common reflection.  This year, the first of my Pontificate, I have decided to sign this traditional message myself and to send it to you, dear friends, as an expression of esteem and friendship for all Muslims, especially those who are religious leaders… Turning to mutual respect in interreligious relations, especially between Christians and Muslims, we are called to respect the religion of the other, its teachings, its symbols, its values. Particular respect is due to religious leaders and to places of worship… It is clear that, when we show respect for the religion of our neighbors or when we offer them our good wishes on the occasion of a religious celebration, we simply seek to share their joy…  Regarding the education of Muslim and Christian youth, we have to bring up our young people to think and speak respectfully of other religions and their followers, and to avoid ridiculing or denigrating their convictions and practices… With these sentiments, I reiterate my hope that all Christians and Muslims may be true promoters of mutual respect and friendship, in particular through education.  Finally, I send you my prayerful good wishes, that your lives may glorify the Almighty and give joy to those around you.  Happy Feast to you all!From the Vatican, 10 July 2013.  Franciscus” -Antipope Francis, July 10, 2013 Message to Muslims for the End of Ramadan

Francis’ May 3, 2014 address to the “bishops” of Sri Lanka: “Sri Lanka is a country not only of rich ethnic diversity, but also of various religious traditions; this highlights the importance of interreligious and ecumenical dialog for fostering mutual knowledge and enrichment… I urge you, therefore, to be ever vigilant and to work with governmental authorities and other religious leaders…”


“Therefore The Catholic Church condemns, rejects, anathematizes and declares to be outside the Body of Christ, which is the Church, WHOEVER holds opposing or contrary views.”-(Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, Cantate Domino, 1442 A.D.)


"Therefore the Catholic Church denounces all who after that time observe circumcision, the sabbath and other such legal prescriptions [the Jews] as strangers to the faith of Christ and unable to share in eternal salvation." (Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, Bull of Union with the Copts, 1442 A.D.)

"For since they hold it for certain that men destitute of all religious sense are very rarely to be found, they seem to have founded on that belief a hope that the nations, although they differ among themselves in certain religious matters, will without much difficulty come to agree as brethren in professing certain doctrines, which form as it were a common basis of the spiritual life. For which reason conventions, meetings and addresses are frequently arranged by these persons, at which a large number of listeners are present, and at which all without distinction are invited to join in the discussion, both infidels of every kind, and Christians, even those who have unhappily fallen away from Christ or who with obstinacy and pertinacity deny His divine nature and mission. Certainly such attempts can nowise be approved by Catholics, founded as they are on that false opinion which considers all religions to be more or less good and praiseworthy, since they all in different ways manifest and signify that sense which is inborn in us all, and by which we are led to 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." - (Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos, #2, 1928)

“Therefore The Catholic Church condemns, rejects, anathematizes and declares to be outside the Body of Christ, which is the Church, WHOEVER holds opposing or contrary views.”-(Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, Cantate Domino, 1442 A.D.)

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Basel, Session 19, Sept. 7, 1434: “… there is hope that very many from the abominable sect of Mahomet will be converted to the Catholic faith.”103


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

“Since the day We were raised to the Pontifical Chair France has been ever the object to us of a special solicitude and affection. For from her God, in the unfathomable designs of His mercy over the world, has in the course of ages by preference chosen Apostolic men destined to preach the true faith to the limits of the globe, and to carry the light of the Gospel to the nations yet plunged in the darkness of paganism. - Pope Leo XIII, Depuis le Jour, September 8, 1899.

Pope Leo XIII, Dec. 8, 1892: “Everyone should avoid familiarity or friendship with anyone suspected of belonging to masonry or to affiliated groups.  Know them by their fruits and avoid them.  Every familiarity should be avoided, not only with those impious libertines who openly promote the character of the sect, but also with those who hide under the mask of universal tolerance, respect for all religions…”


THE CRUSADES AND HOLY WARS OF CHRIST ARE EVIL


MAY 22, 2014: “This ‘closing off’ that imagines that those outside, everyone, cannot do good is a wall that leads to war and also to what some people throughout history have conceived of: killing in the name of God… And that, simply, is blasphemy. To say that you can kill in the name of God is blasphemy.”


SEPTEMBER 21, 2014: "Let no one consider themselves the 'armor' of God while planning and carrying out acts of violence and oppression.  May no one use religion as a pretext for actions against human dignity and against the fundamental rights of every man and woman, above all to the right to life and the right of everyone to religious freedom."


Francis’ May 26, 2014 address to the President of Israel Shimon Peres: “We think, for example, of recourse to violence and terrorism, all forms of discrimination on the basis of race or religion and signs of intolerance directed against individuals or places of worship, be they Jewish, Christian or Muslim…The presence of these communities and respect for their rights – as for the rights of all other religious groups and minorities – are the guarantee of a healthy pluralism and proof of the vitality of democratic values as they are authentically embodied in the daily life and workings of the State.  Mr President, you know that I pray for you and I know that you are praying for me… Shalom!”

“The same law is to be observed in regard to those who have no chief rulers (that is, are independent). Catholics who have girded themselves with the cross for the extermination of the heretics, shall enjoy the indulgences and privileges granted to those who go in defense of the Holy Land.”- Fourth Lateran Council, Pope Innocent III, 1215 A.D.


“Desiring with an ardent desire to liberate the Holy Land from the hands of the ungodly, we decree with the advice of prudent men who are fully familiar with the circumstances of the times, and with the approval of the council, that all who have taken the cross and have decided to cross the sea, hold themselves so prepared that they may, on June 1 of the year after next (1217), come together in the Kingdom of Sicily, some at Brundusium and others at Messana, where, God willing, we (the Pope) will be present personally to order and to bestow on the Christian army the divine and Apostolic blessing. Those who decide to make the journey by land, should strive to hold themselves prepared for the same time; for their aid and guidance we shall in the meantime appoint a competent legate a latere. Priests and other clerics who are with the Christian army, subjects as well as prelates, must be diligent in prayer and exhortation, teaching them (the crusaders) by word and example that they have always before their eyes the fear and love of God, lest they say or do something that might offend the majesty of the eternal King.” - Fourth Lateran Council, Pope Innocent III, 1215 A.D.


“We too trusting in the mercy of God and the authority of the blessed apostles Peter and Paul, grant to faithful Christians who take up arms against them [the Cathar heretics], and who on the advice of bishops or other prelates seek to drive them out, a remission for two years of penance imposed on them, or, if their service shall be longer, we entrust it to the discretion of the bishops, to whom this task has been committed, to grant greater indulgence, according to their judgment, in proportion to the degree of their toil.”- Third Lateran Council, Pope Alexander III, 1177 A.D.


“To those who set out for Jerusalem and offer effective help towards the defence of the christian people and overcoming the tyranny of the infidels, we grant the remission of their sins, and we place their houses and families and all their goods under the protection of blessed Peter and the Roman church, just as has been decreed by our lord pope Urban.” - First Lateran Council, Pope Callistus II, 1123 A.D.


“Secular authorities, whatever office they may hold, shall be admonished and induced and if necessary compelled by ecclesiastical censure, that as they wish to be esteemed and numbered among the faithful, so for the defense of the faith they ought publicly to take an oath that they will strive in good faith and to the best of their ability to exterminate in the territories subject to their jurisdiction all heretics pointed out by the Church; so that whenever anyone shall have assumed authority, whether spiritual or temporal, let him be bound to confirm this decree by oath” (Fourth Lateran Council 1215 A.D., Pope Innocent III, Canon 3 on Heresy)


Pope Leo XIII, Dec. 8, 1892: “Everyone should avoid familiarity or friendship with anyone suspected of belonging to masonry or to affiliated groups.  Know them by their fruits and avoid them.  Every familiarity should be avoided, not only with those impious libertines who openly promote the character of the sect, but also with those who hide under the mask of universal tolerance, respect for all religions…”


THERE IS SALVATION OUTSIDE THE CATHOLIC CHURCH AND CATHOLIC FAITH FOR THOSE IN FALSE BELIEFS, EVEN ATHEISTS


“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 [i.e. not whether they hold the Catholic Faith].  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.”- Antipope Francis, July and August, 2013 Interview with Italian Newspaper La Repubblica.




“Whoever wills to be saved, before all things it is necessary that he holds the Catholic Faith. Unless a person keeps this faith whole and undefiled, without doubt he shall perish eternally."- Council of Florence, 1442 A.D. (citing the universal and infallible Athanasian Creed)


“Therefore it [the Catholic Church] condemns, reproves, anathematizes and declares to be outside the body of Christ, which is the church, whoever holds opposing or contrary views. Hence it condemns Sabellius, who confused the persons and altogether removed their real distinction. It condemns the Arians, the Eunomians and the Macedonians who say that only the Father is true God and place the Son and the holy Spirit in the order of creatures. It also condemns any others who make degrees or inequalities in the Trinity.” Council of Florence, Pope Eugene IV, ex cathedra, infallible


"The Catholic Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that all those who are outside the catholic church, not only pagans but also Jews or heretics and schismatics, cannot share in eternal life and will go into the everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels, unless they are joined to the Catholic Church before the end of their lives; that the unity of the ecclesiastical body is of such importance that only for those who abide in it do the church's sacraments contribute to salvation and do fasts, almsgiving and other works of piety and practices of the Christian militia produce eternal rewards; and that nobody can be saved, no matter how much he has given away in alms and even if he has shed his blood in the name of Christ, unless he has persevered in the bosom and the unity of the Catholic Church."- Cantate Domino, Council of Florence, 1442 A.D, Pope Eugene IV, ex cathedra.


"Furthermore, we declare, we proclaim, we define that it is absolutely necessary for the salvation of every human creature that they be subject to the Roman Pontiff."- Unam Sanctam, Pope Boniface VIII 1302 A.D.


“The practice of the Church has always been the same, as is shown by the unanimous teaching of the Fathers, who were wont to hold as outside Catholic communion, and alien to the Church, whoever would recede in the least degree from any point of doctrine proposed by her authoritative Magisterium. Epiphanius, Augustine, Theodoret, drew up a long list of the heresies of their times. St. Augustine notes that other heresies may spring up, to a single one of which, should any one give his assent, he is by the very fact cut off from Catholic unity. ‘No one who merely disbelieves in all (these heresies) can for that reason regard himself as a Catholic or call himself one. For there may be or may arise some other heresies, which are not set out in this work of ours, and, if any one holds to one single one of these he is not a Catholic’” (S. Augustinus, De Haeresibus, n. 88)." (Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum, 1896).


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.” (Pope Pius XI Mortalium Animos #11)


THE FALSE RELIGIONS ARE ENTITLED TO RELIGIOUS LIBERTY


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


Francis’ June 8, 2013 Discourse to the president of Italy:

“In the world today freedom of religion is often talked about rather than put into practice… One and all are duty bound to defend religious freedom and to promote it for everyone.  The shared protection of this moral good is also a guarantee of the entire community’s growth and development.”


Francis’ April 4, 2014 address to the Bishops of Tanzania: “I am particularly encouraged to know that Tanzania is committed to ensuring the freedom that followers of various religions enjoy to practice their faith.  The ongoing protection and promotion of this fundamental human right strengthens society by enabling believers, in fidelity to the dictates of their conscience and in respect for the dignity and rights of all…”


Francis’ May 26, 2014 address to the President of Israel Shimon Peres: “We think, for example, of recourse to violence and terrorism, all forms of discrimination on the basis of race or religion and signs of intolerance directed against individuals or places of worship, be they Jewish, Christian or Muslim…The presence of these communities and respect for their rights – as for the rights of all other religious groups and minorities – are the guarantee of a healthy pluralism and proof of the vitality of democratic values as they are authentically embodied in the daily life and workings of the State.  Mr President, you know that I pray for you and I know that you are praying for me… Shalom!”


Francis’ June 20, 2014 address at conference on “religious freedom and international law”: “The debate over religious freedom has become very intense recently, turning to both Governments and religious Confessions.  On this matter, the Catholic Church [this is incorrect, it is the Vatican II apostate sect] refers to the Declaration Dignitatis Humanae, one of the most important documents of the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council… Religious freedom is not only that of private thought or worship.  It is the liberty to live, both privately and publicly, according to the ethical principles resulting from found truth… Legal systems, therefore, whether state or international, are called upon to recognize, guarantee and protect religious freedom, which is an intrinsic right inherent to human nature, to the dignity of being free, and is also a sign of a healthy democracy and one of the principle sources of the legitimacy of the State.  Religious freedom, acknowledged in constitutions and laws and expressed in consistent conduct promotes the development of relationships of mutual respect among the diverse Confessions and their healthy collaboration with the State and political society… I truly hope that your conference defines in depth and great precision the justifications that obligate every legal system to respect and defend religious freedom.  I thank you for this contribution.”

“This shameful font of indifferentism gives rise to that absurd and erroneous proposition which claims that liberty of conscience must be maintained for everyone. It spreads ruin in sacred and civil affairs, though some repeat over and over again with the greatest impudence that some advantage accrues to religion from it. "But the death of the soul is worse than freedom of error," as Augustine was wont to say. When all restraints are removed by which men are kept on the narrow path of truth, their nature, which is already inclined to evil, propels them to ruin. Then truly "the bottomless pit" is open from which John saw smoke ascending which obscured the sun, and out of which locusts flew forth to devastate the earth. Thence comes transformation of minds, corruption of youths, contempt of sacred things and holy laws -- in other words, a pestilence more deadly to the state than any other. Experience shows, even from earliest times, that cities renowned for wealth, dominion, and glory perished as a result of this single evil, namely immoderate freedom of opinion, license of free speech, and desire for novelty. Here We must include that harmful and never sufficiently denounced freedom to publish any writings whatever and disseminate them to the people, which some dare to demand and promote with so great a clamor. We are horrified to see what monstrous doctrines and prodigious errors are disseminated far and wide in countless books, pamphlets, and other writings which, though small in weight, are very great in malice. We are in tears at the abuse which proceeds from them over the face of the earth. Some are so carried away that they contentiously assert that the flock of errors arising from them is sufficiently compensated by the publication of some book which defends religion and truth. Every law condemns deliberately doing evil simply because there is some hope that good may result. Is there any sane man who would say poison ought to be distributed, sold publicly, stored, and even drunk because some antidote is available and those who use it may be snatched from death again and again?” (Gregory XVI, Mirair Vos, 1832).

"And from this wholly false idea of social organization they do not fear to foster that erroneous opinion, especially fatal to the Catholic Church and the salvation of souls, called by our predecessor, Gregory XVI, insanity, namely that the ‘liberty of conscience and worship is the proper right of every man, and should be proclaimed by law in every correctly established society’... Each and every doctrine individually mentioned in this letter, by Our Apostolic authority We reject, proscribe and condemn; and We wish and command that they be considered as absolutely rejected by all the sons of the Church." (Pope Pius IX, Quanta Cura, 1864).

There is certainly no need of many words, in addressing you, to make you fully recognize by how lethal a wound the Catholic religion in France is struck by this article. For when the liberty of all "religions" is indiscriminately asserted, by this very fact truth is confounded with error and the holy and immaculate Spouse of Christ, the Church, outside of which there can be no salvation, is set on a par with the sects of heretics and with Judaic perfidy itself. For when favour and patronage is promised even to the sects of heretics and their ministers, not only their persons, but also their very errors, are tolerated and fostered: a system of errors in which is contained that fatal and never sufficiently to be deplored HERESY which, as St. Augustine says (de Haeresibus, no.72), "asserts that all heretics proceed correctly and tell the truth: which is so absurd that it seems incredible to me." (Pope Pius VII, Post Tam Diuturnas, 1814).

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


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


Pope Leo XIII, Dec. 8, 1892: “Everyone should avoid familiarity or friendship with anyone suspected of belonging to masonry or to affiliated groups.  Know them by their fruits and avoid them.  Every familiarity should be avoided, not only with those impious libertines who openly promote the character of the sect, but also with those who hide under the mask of universal tolerance, respect for all religions…”

THE CATHOLIC GOD AND CATHOLIC CHURCH DO NOT EXIST


“I believe in God, not in a Catholic God; there is no Catholic God,” Francis said.  (Conversation with an Atheist, October 1, 2013).


“Question for Francis: ‘Where is Bergoglio’s Church headed?’  Francis: ‘Thank God, I have no Church; I follow Christ.’” Interview with Il Messaggero, June 29, 2014


Apostles Creed:

I believe in God, the Father almighty,

creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, our Lord,

who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,

born of the Virgin Mary,

suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, died, and was buried;

he descended into hell.

On the third day he rose again;

he ascended into heaven,

he is seated at the right hand of the Father,

and he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

the Holy Catholic Church,

the communion of saints,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting. Amen.


The Church professes this and other creeds to distinguish the true Catholic God from the false gods.


Jesus requires all men to profess the Catholic Faith, because Jesus professes the Catholic Faith.  Jesus is Catholic.


“Whoever wills to be saved, before all things it is necessary that he holds the Catholic Faith. Unless a person keeps this faith whole and undefiled, without doubt he shall perish eternally."- Council of Florence, 1442 A.D. (citing the universal and infallible Athanasian Creed)


Pope Clement VI, Super quibusdam, Sept. 20, 1351:

“We ask: In the first place, whether you and the Church of the Armenians which is obedient to you, believe that all those who in baptism have received the same Catholic faith, and afterwards have withdrawn and will withdraw in the future from the communion of THIS SAME ROMAN CHURCH, WHICH ONE ALONE IS CATHOLIC, are schismatic and heretical, if they remain obstinately separated from the faith of this Roman Church.”



SODOMY IS NOT A VICE AND MAY EVEN BE APPROVED BY GOD, THE PONTIFF HAS NO AUTHORITY TO JUDGE SODOMITES


“If someone is gay [a sodomite] and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?”  Antipope Francis taking questions from news reporters on a plane, July 29, 2013.


To author Francesca Pardi, who writes childrens’ books promoting marriage of sodomites: “His holiness is grateful for the thoughtful gesture and for the feelings which it evoked, hoping for an always more fruitful activity in the service of young generations and the spread of genuine human and Christian values”.July 9, 2015, Antipope Francis letter.


“Let all who are found guilty of that unnatural vice for which the wrath of God came down upon the sons of disobedience and destroyed the five cities with fire, if they are clerics be expelled from the clergy or confined in monasteries to do penance; if they are laymen they are to incur excommunication and be completely separated from the society of the faithful. If any cleric without clear and necessary cause presumes to frequent convents of nuns, let the bishop keep him away; and if he does not stop, let him be ineligible for an ecclesiastical benefice.”- Pope Alexander III, Third Lateran Ecumenical Council, 1179 A.D ex cathedra law of the Church.

Only four months after coming into the Chair of Peter, Leo IX held a synod and condemned the two notorious evils of the day - simony, the buying, selling or exchange of ecclesiastical favors, offices, annulments and other spiritual considerations and clerical sexual incontinence, including concubinage (permanent or long-standing cohabitation) and sodomy.

“Since the Roman pontiff, by the divine right of the apostolic primacy, governs the whole church, We likewise teach and declare that HE IS THE SUPREME JUDGE OF THE FAITHFUL”- Pope Pius IX, Vatican I, “On the Power and Character of the Primacy of the Roman Pontiff”, 18 July 1870, infallible.

THE EASTERN SCHISMATICS ARE MARTYRS AND DISCIPLES OF CHRIST


Francis’ May 25, 2014 “ecumenical celebration” with Schismatic “Patriarch” Bartholomew: “Here I reiterate the hope already expressed by my predecessors for a continued dialog with our brothers and sisters in Christ, aimed at finding a means of exercising the specific ministry of the Bishop of Rome which, in fidelity to his mission, can be open to a new situation and can be, in the present context, a service of love and of communion acknowledged by all (cf. John Paul II, Ut Unum Sint, n. 95-96)… When Christians of different confessions suffer together, side by side, and assist one another with fraternal charity, there is born an ecumenism of suffering, an ecumenism of blood, which proves particularly powerful not only for those situations in which it occurs, but also, by virtue of the communion of the saints, for the whole Church as well.  Those who kill, persecute Christians out of hatred, do not ask if they are [Schismatics] Orthodox or Catholics: they are Christians.  The blood of Christians is the same.


Francis’ May 10, 2013 greeting to head of the Coptic Schismatic church of Egypt:

“…I welcome Your Holiness and the distinguished members of your delegation… Today’s visit strengthens the bonds of friendship and brotherhood that already exist between the See of Peter and the See of Mark, heir to an inestimable heritage of martyrs [claiming schismatic martyrs are inestimable and can be saved], theologians, holy monks and faithful disciples of Christ [claiming schismatics have Catholic faith and are Christ’s disciples]… we are glad to recognize that we are united by one Baptism, of which our common prayer is a special expression… The institution of a ‘National Council of Christian Churches’ which you strongly desired, represents an important sign of the will of all believers in Christ… Your Holiness, in sincerely assuring you of my prayers that the whole flock entrusted to your pastoral care may be ever faithful to the Lord’s call, I invoke the protection of both St Peter and St Mark…”


Francis’ April 2, 2014 telegram message to Mor Ignatius Aphrem, the new “Supreme Patriarch” of the Syrian  Schismatic church:

“I received with joy the news of the election of Your Holiness as Patriarch of Antioch and all the East and Supreme Head of the Universal Syrian Orthodox Church.  I gladly extend to you and to the clergy and faithful of the Syrian Orthodox Patriarchate my good wishes and prayerful solidarity, asking the Holy Spirit to bestow his abundant blessings upon your lofty [schismatic] ministry.  It is my prayer that Your Holiness may be a spiritual father for your people…”

Francis’ May 5, 2014 letter to Tawadros II, schismatic “pope” of Alexandria, Egypt: “To His Holiness [Schismatic] Tawadros II Pope of Alexandria and Patriarch of the See of Saint Mark.  As the first anniversary of our fraternal meeting in Rome on 10 May 2013 approaches, I take this opportunity to write to Your Holiness as a way of reliving the joy and gratitude we experienced on that occasion.  Our encounter strengthened those spiritual bonds which unite the See of Peter and the See of Markwe already experience a real communion… Building upon our shared moment of prayer in the course of Your Holiness’s visit to Rome, let us continue

Francis’ words on June 28, 2014 when he received a delegation of the Schismatic “Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople”: “The joy of that meeting was then renewed when, in a certain sense, we concluded our pilgrimage here at the tomb of the Apostle Peter as we joined in fervent prayer, together with the Presidents of Israel and Palestine… We need to let ourselves be caught up in Christ’s loving gaze upon the Church, his Bride, in our journey of spiritual ecumenism.  It is a journey upheld by the martyrdom of so many of our brothers and sisters who, by their witness to Jesus Christ the Lord, have brought about an ecumenism of blood.  Dear members of the Delegation, with sentiments of sincere respect, friendship and love in Christ, I renew my heartfelt gratitude for your presence among us.  I ask you to convey my greeting to my venerable brother Bartholomaios and to continue to pray for me…”




“Therefore, if the Greeks or others should say that they are not confided to Peter and to his successors, they must confess not being the sheep of Christ, since Our Lord says in John 'there is one sheepfold and one shepherd.’”- Unam Sanctam (Pope Boniface VIII, 1302 A.D.)

"The Catholic Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that… schismatics, cannot share in eternal life and will go into the everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels…  even if he has shed his blood in the name of Christ”- Cantate Domino, Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, 1442 A.D., ex cathedra

"Consider the fact that whoever has not been in the peace and unity of the Church cannot have the Lord. ...Although given over to flames and fires, they burn, or, thrown to wild beasts, they lay down their lives, there will not be (for them) that crown of faith but the punishment of faithlessness. ...Such a one can be slain, he cannot be crowned. ...[If] slain outside the Church, he cannot attain the rewards of the Church." (Pope Pelagius II)


Pope St. Leo the Great, Sermon 129: “Wherefore, since outside the Catholic Church there is nothing perfect, nothing undefiled… we are in no way likened with those who are divided from the unity of the Body of Christ; we are joined in no communion.



THE ETHNICITIES SHOULD INTERMARRY AND BE UNITED INTO A SINGLE GOVERNMENT AND NATION (LIKE BABEL)


Not surprisingly, the Antipope has also contradicted the recent statements and teachings of Pope Boniface VIII, that the nations of the earth should remain separated:


On July 27, 2014 Antipope Francis conducted an interview with the Argentine weekly “Viva”.  In this interview he praised Sweden for being completely open and allowing immigrants from other tribes to immigrant into it, and dilute its Caucasian population.  He did not condemn intermarriage between the Swedish and the aliens.  He called this “generosity”, and noted that any anti-immigration policies in Europe show that it is “afraid”.

“It is right and proper to be concerned regarding the dilution of a particular ethnic and racial people.  God separated the nations at Babel, primarily into the three main tribes that descended from Shem, Ham, and Japheth.  God clearly reveals His intention to keep the nations unique and separate at Babel, and through the unique blessings granted among Noah’s sons.  God commanded the Apostles to preach the gospel unto the nations (plural).  This doctrine that respected ethnic distinctions was commonly taught throughout the Catholic Church and in Catholic history, and was based on scriptural prudence and insight.  In 2014, Boniface X decreed in his “Regarding the Apostate Jews, Ethnic Immigration, and Miscegenation of the Races” that it is improper to attempt to amalgamate the races and tribes into a single unitary race or whole, to intermarry and intermingle them, and to unite the nations into a single governmental order, as contrary to this decree at Babel.  “Each ethnicity was created by Our Lord Jesus Christ, and the scriptures proclaim that Christ created every unique nation, and each nation was always intended to stand on its own, to be its own people, to care for its own, and not to intermingle as in the days of Babel. All nations are called to submission to the Roman Pontiff, and in submission to the Catholic Church, and each nation must be nurtured and promoted in the Catholic Faith, but it is contrary to the wisdom of Our Lord Jesus Christ, who separated the nations with a distinct purpose, to attempt to intermingle them again, and intermarry them.” (Regarding the Apostate Jews, Ethnic Immigration, and Miscegenation of the Races, Pope Boniface X, 2014.)

THE PROTESTANT HERETICS ARE BROTHER BELIEVERS IN CHRIST AND ON THE WAY OF SALVATION

“Good morning, Brothers and Sisters,My brother, [Protestant] Pastor Giovanni, began speaking about the center of our life: to be in the presence of Jesus… From the first moment of Christianity, there has been this temptation in the Christian community.  ‘I am this; ‘I am that’,  ‘No! I am the Church, you are the sect’… And thus who acquires us is he, the father of division.  Not the Lord Jesus, who prayed for unity (Jn 17), he prayed!  What does the Holy Spirit make?  I said he makes something else, which one might think of as division, but it isn’t.  The Holy Spirit creates ‘diversity’ in the Church.  The First Letter to the Corinthians, chapter 12.  He creates diversity!  It’s true this diversity is so rich, so beautiful.  But then, the same Holy Spirit creates unity, and this way the Church is one in diversity.  And, to use a beautiful word of an Evangelist whom I love very much, a diversity ‘reconciled’ by the Holy Spirit.  He does both these things: he creates the diversity of charismata and then makes harmony of the charismata… This is unity in diversity.  It is on this path that we Christians do what we call by the theological name of ecumenism… Some may be shocked: ‘But the Pope went to the [Pentecostal Protestant] Evangelists!’  He went to visit his brothers!  Yes!  Because – and what I speak is the truth – they first came to visit me in Buenos Aires.  And there is a witness here: Jorge Himitian can tell the story of when they came, they made the approach… And thus this friendship began, this closeness between the pastors of Buenos Aires, and here today.  I thank you.  I ask you to pray for me, I need it… that at least I won’t be so bad.  Thank you!”

Antipope Francis July 1, 2014 address to the “Charismatic Renewal”:You [“charismatics”] received the Holy Spirit… You, the people of God, the people of the charismatic renewal, must be careful not to lose the freedom which the Holy Spirit has given you!… Remember that ‘the charismatic renewal is de facto ecumenical in nature… The Catholic renewal rejoices in what the Holy Spirit is accomplishing in the other [heretical Protestant] Churches .” The “charismatic movement”, founded by Protestant heretics, is clearly demonic and has nothing to do with original Roman Catholicism.  These Protestant heretics laugh and cry hysterically at their meetings and many have reported being possessed.

Francis’ June 16, 2014 address to “His Grace” Heretic Justin Welby, the Protestant heretical “Archbishop” of Canterbury: “‘Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity!’ (Ps 133:1)  Once again we meet, Your Grace, as co-workers in the Lord’s vineyard and fellow pilgrims on the path to his Kingdom.  I welcome you and the distinguished members of your delegation… We must walk together.  Your Grace, I thank you once more for your visit.  I ask the Lord to shower his blessings on your ministry and to sustain you and your loved ones in joy and peace.  Amen.”



“Therefore, if the Greeks or others should say that they are not confided to Peter and to his successors, they must confess not being the sheep of Christ, since Our Lord says in John 'there is one sheepfold and one shepherd.’”- Unam Sanctam (Pope Boniface VIII, 1302 A.D.)

"The Catholic Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that… heretics, cannot share in eternal life and will go into the everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels…  even if he has shed his blood in the name of Christ”- Cantate Domino, Council of Florence, 1442 A.D.

“The practice of the Church has always been the same, as is shown by the unanimous teaching of the Fathers, who were wont to hold as outside Catholic communion, and alien to the Church, whoever would recede in the least degree from any point of doctrine proposed by her authoritative Magisterium. Epiphanius, Augustine, Theodoret, drew up a long list of the heresies of their times. St. Augustine notes that other heresies may spring up, to a single one of which, should any one give his assent, he is by the very fact cut off from Catholic unity. ‘No one who merely disbelieves in all (these heresies) can for that reason regard himself as a Catholic or call himself one. For there may be or may arise some other heresies, which are not set out in this work of ours, and, if any one holds to one single one of these he is not a Catholic’” (S. Augustinus, De Haeresibus, n. 88)." (Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum, 1896).

“Whoever wills to be saved, before all things it is necessary that he holds the Catholic Faith. Unless a person keeps this faith whole and undefiled, without doubt he shall perish eternally."- Council of Florence, 1442 A.D. (citing the universal and infallible Athanasian Creed)

“Therefore The Catholic Church condemns, rejects, anathematizes and declares to be outside the Body of Christ, which is the Church, WHOEVER holds opposing or contrary views.”-(Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, Cantate Domino, 1442 A.D.)

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

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH CONSISTS OF A MULTITUDE OF DIFFERENT HERETICAL AND SCHISMATIC SECTS, AND IS DIVIDED IN FAITH AND GOVERNMENT

Francis’ September 25, 2013 catechesis at General Audience: “It is we who create wounds!  And if we look at the divisions that still exist among Christians, Catholics, Orthodox, Protestants… we are aware of the effort required to make this unity fully visible.”

Pope Pius XI encyclical Mortalium Animos 7:  “And here it seems opportune to expound and to refute a certain false opinion, on which this whole question, as well as that complex movement by which non-Catholics seek to bring about the union of the Christian churches depends. For authors who favor this view are accustomed, times almost without number, to bring forward these words of Christ: ‘That they all may be one…. And there shall be one fold and one shepherd,’ with this signification however: that Christ Jesus merely expressed a desire and prayer, which still lacks its fulfillment. For they are of the opinion that the unity of faith and government, WHICH IS A NOTE OF THE ONE TRUE CHURCH OF CHRIST, has hardly up to the present time existed, and does not to-day exist.”

Pope Clement VI, Super quibusdam, Sept. 20, 1351:

“We ask: In the first place, whether you and the Church of the Armenians which is obedient to you, believe that all those who in baptism have received the same Catholic faith, and afterwards have withdrawn and will withdraw in the future from the communion of THIS SAME ROMAN CHURCH, WHICH ONE ALONE IS CATHOLIC, are schismatic and heretical, if they remain obstinately separated from the faith of this Roman Church.”

The Nicene-Constantinople Creed, 381, ex cathedra: “We believe in… one holy Catholic and apostolic Church.”

It is so evident from the clear and frequent testimonies of Holy Writ that the true Church of Jesus Christ is one, that no Christian can dare to deny it. But in judging and determining the nature of this unity many have erred in various ways. Not the foundation of the Church alone, but its whole constitution, belongs to the class of things effected by Christ's free choice. For this reason the entire case must be judged by what was actually done. We must consequently investigate not how the Church may possibly be one, but how He, who founded it, willed that it should be one. But when we consider what was actually done we find that Jesus Christ did not, in point of fact, institute a Church to embrace several communities similar in nature, but in themselves distinct, and lacking those bonds which render the Church unique and indivisible after that manner in which in the symbol of our faith we profess: "I believe in one Church." "The Church in respect of its unity belongs to the category of things indivisible by nature, though heretics try to divide it into many parts...We say, therefore, that the Catholic Church is unique in its essence, in its doctrine, in its origin, and in its excellence...Furthermore, the eminence of the Church arises from its unity, as the principle of its constitution - a unity surpassing all else, and having nothing like unto it or equal to it" (S. Clemens Alexandrinus, Stronmatum lib. viii., c. 17). For this reason Christ, speaking of the mystical edifice, mentions only one Church, which he calls His own - "I will build my church.” - Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum #4, June 29, 1896.


THE APOSTATE JEWS’ ERRORS ARE TO BE RESPECTED, AND THE APOSTATE JEWS ARE NOT ACCURSED OR DENOUNCED

"With the approach of the High Holidays I reach my closeness to the Jewish Community and best wishes. I join in prayer to my older [non-Catholic Jewish] brothers and, please, I ask you to pray for me. May God bless you." Message from Cardinal Bergoglio occasion of the Jewish New Year celebrations, sent through the Jewish News Agency (8-9-2.010)

Distinguished Chief Rabbis of Israel, Dear Brothers and Sisters, I am particularly pleased to be here with you today… As you know, from the time I was Archbishop of Buenos Aires, I have counted many Jews among my friends.  Today two friends who are rabbis are here with us.  Together we organized rewarding occasions of encounter and dialog; with them I also experienced significant moments of sharing on a spiritual level.  In the first months of my pontificate, I was able to receive various organizations and representatives from the Jewish community worldwide… these testify to our mutual desire to know one another better, to listen to each other and to build bonds of true fraternity… Here I would like to mention in particular the growing importance of the dialog between the Chief Rabbinate of Israel and the Holy See’s Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews.  Inspired by the visit of Pope John Paul II to the Holy Land, this dialog was inaugurated in 2002 and is already in its twelfth year.  I would like to think that, in terms of the Jewish tradition of the Bar Mitzvah, it is just coming of age.  I am confident that it will continue and have a bright future in years to come.  We need to do more than simply establish reciprocal and respectful relations on a human level: we are also called, as Christians and Jews, to reflect deeply on the spiritual significance of the bond existing between us.  It is a bond whose origins are from on high… Mutual understanding of our spiritual heritage, appreciation for what we have in common and respect in matters on which we disagree: all these can help to guide us to a closer relationship, an intention which we put in God’s hands.  Together, we can make a great contribution to the cause of peace; together, we can bear witness… Shalom!”

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


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

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

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


On March 25, 2013 Francis sent a telegram to Rome’s chief rabbi for Passover. Francis said that he esteems Jews and asked them to pray for him. He also asked that God “CONTINUE to deliver you from ALL evil” even though the Rabbi rejects Jesus – the only One who can deliver us from evil.  The rabbi clearly has not been delivered from all evil, since he rejects the Catholic Faith and is therefore damned.  Of course, no mention is made of this eternally important fact by Antipope Francis.

L’ Osservatore Romano, March 27, 2013, p. 4.

“Therefore The Catholic Church condemns, rejects, anathematizes and declares to be outside the Body of Christ, which is the Church, WHOEVER holds opposing or contrary views.”-(Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, Cantate Domino, 1442 A.D.)


Therefore the Catholic Church denounces all who after that time observe circumcision, the sabbath and other such legal prescriptions [the Jews] as strangers to the faith of Christ and unable to share in eternal salvation.(Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, Bull of Union with the Copts, 1442 A.D.)

MUSLIMS HAVE FAITH AND ARE MARTYRS OF GOD

Francis’ September 21, 2014 “Homily” in “Mother Teresa Square” in Tirana, Albania: “Recalling the decades of atrocious suffering and harsh persecutions against Catholics, Orthodox [Schismatics] and Muslims, we can say that Albania was a land of martyrs: many bishops, priests, men and women religious, laity, and clerics and ministers of other religions paid for their fidelity with their lives.”

Francis’ September 21, 2014 In-Flight interview with journalists on trip from Albania back to Rome:  Question: “Your Holiness, what were your emotions as you drove down the central boulevard of Tirana, under the pictures of the clergy who were martyred during the communist regime, in a country in which until 25 years ago atheism had been officially imposed?” Francis: “When I saw those photographs (and there were not only Catholics, but [Schismatic] Orthodox also Muslims as well… So I would say that all three religious groups bore witness to God and now they are bearing witness to brotherhood.”

"The Catholic Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that all those who are outside the catholic church, not only pagans but also Jews or heretics and schismatics, cannot share in eternal life and will go into the everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels, unless they are joined to the Catholic Church before the end of their lives; that the unity of the ecclesiastical body is of such importance that only for those who abide in it do the church's sacraments contribute to salvation and do fasts, almsgiving and other works of piety and practices of the Christian militia produce eternal rewards; and that nobody can be saved, no matter how much he has given away in alms and even if he has shed his blood in the name of Christ, unless he has persevered in the bosom and the unity of the Catholic Church."- Cantate Domino, Council of Florence, 1442 A.D.

"Consider the fact that whoever has not been in the peace and unity of the Church cannot have the Lord. ...Although given over to flames and fires, they burn, or, thrown to wild beasts, they lay down their lives, there will not be (for them) that crown of faith but the punishment of faithlessness. ...Such a one can be slain, he cannot be crowned. ...[If] slain outside the Church, he cannot attain the rewards of the Church." (Pope Pelagius II)

“Whoever wills to be saved, before all things it is necessary that he holds the Catholic Faith. Unless a person keeps this Faith whole and undefiled, without doubt he shall perish eternally."- Council of Florence, 1442 A.D. (citing the universal and infallible Athanasian Creed)

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

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