[title cont.: ...Renounces Free Market Economics as Crude and Naive]
Since his coronation, Pope Francis has made waves throughout the Catholic community, often shunning generally accepted Papal tradition for a more modern and progressive world. He is, for lack of a better term, a reformer. From refusing the luxurious living quarters traditionally reserved for the head of the Church in the Vatican, to turning Catholic dogma on its head by suggesting its OK to be gay when he addressed the issue by asking, Who am I to judge? Francis is unlike any popes who have come before him.
By some accounts, he has been a positive influence, as evidenced by a growing interest in Catholicism since he took the reigns of the Church. For others, especially those who have followed the centuries old prophecies of Saint Malachy, his message is being approached with caution and skepticism.
Now, in his first encyclical, a Papal letter sent to Bishops of the Roman Catholic Church, Francis has once again caused an uproar by claiming free market capitalism and trickle-down economics are unproven theories not backed with facts.
It is no longer simply about exploitation and oppression, but something new, the pontiff wrote in the 85-page document. Exclusion ultimately has to do with what it means to be a part of the society in which we live; those excluded are no longer societys underside or its fringes or its disenfranchised they are no longer even a part of it. The excluded are not the exploited but the outcast, the leftovers.
The pope also denounced trickle-down theories of economics promoted by many conservatives and politicians who espouse an unregulated free market.
In this context, some people continue to defend trickle-down theories which assume that economic growth, encouraged by a free market, will inevitably succeed in bringing about greater justice and inclusiveness in the world, he said. This opinion, which has never been confirmed by the facts, expresses a crude and naïve trust in the goodness of those wielding economic power and in the sacralized workings of the prevailing economic system. Meanwhile, the excluded are still waiting.
In addition to restating opposition by the Catholic Church to abortion, the new Pope criticized free market capitalism and advocated wealth redistribution, notes Kurt Nimmo of Infowars about the Popes latest ideas.
While the free market system as it exists today is certainly not ideal, especially considering the elite political machinations taking place behind the scenes on a global scale (including within the halls of the Vatican itself), Pope Francis seems to indicate in his encyclical that the solution is wealth redistribution on a global scale.
Helping the poor and destitute has always been a tenet of Christianity and Catholicism, but the Popes statements become suspect for a variety of reasons, with one of the keys being the notion that he is the fulfillment of a prophecy that claims Francis will be the Pope that ushers in an era right out of the Book of Revelations.
The hesitation for many in subscribing to Francis message of reformation is attributed to a document referred to as the Prophecy of the Popes, which was hidden in the vaults of the Vatican for nearly 900 years, but followed closely by insiders:
In 1139 A.D. the Catholic Saint Malachy was said to have experienced visions during a trip to Rome. He subsequently put these visions to paper and penned a document containing 112 short phrases purporting to describe all future popes that would head the Catholic Church. Though not a part of official Catholic dogma or church teachings, this Prophecy of the Popes is well known by Vatican officials and church scholars because it has been remarkably accurate about naming the last 111 heads of one of the worlds oldest and most widespread religions.
According to researchers, theologians and evangelical scholars, the phrases Malachy scribed in his writings offer up the nature, name, destiny or coat of arms of every pope in succession and culminate with the naming of the 112th pope.
Now, according to prophecy, the 112th Pope will step up to head the Church, and he will be named Petrus Romanus, or Peter the Roman.
Heres the scary part, and one that has given Catholics and other theologians pause, because according to Malachys prophecy, Petrus Romanus is to be the final pope, who will oversee not only the destruction of the Catholic Church, but the world as we know it:
In extreme persecution the seat of the Holy Roman Church will be occupied by Peter the Roman
Who will pasture his sheep in many tribulations and when these things are finished, the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the terrible or fearsome judge will judge his people.
Prophecy of the Popes Attributed to St. Malachy circa 1139 A.D.
Tom Horn of Raiders News Update and one of the worlds foremost experts on the subject published a book in 2012 with theologian Chris Putnam titled Petrus Romanus: The Final Pope Is Here. In their book, the researches claim that the 111th Pope, Benedict, would resign from his position, something that had not happened for 600 years. Benedict did, in fact, resign less than a year later and was replaced by current Pope Francis.
According to Horn, though Francis name does not directly match that of Petrus Romanus, he may well be fulfilling the age-old prophecy of Malachy:
Horn has said a pope of Italian descent would fulfill the prophecy, noting Bergoglio is the son of Italian parents and a Jesuit.
Being a Jesuit is a very important aspect of our prediction in our book, Horn told WND in an email.
He also sees significance in Bergoglio naming himself after Francis of Assisi, an Italian, or Roman, priest whose original name was Francesco di Pietro (Peter) di Bernardone, literally, Peter the Roman.
Whats more, in a recent interview Tom Horn tied together Malachys writings with the research of other Vatican scholars and theologians which indicate that, while Francis himself may not be the biblical anti-christ, he may be the world leader who introduces him, supports his ideas and helps to convince unwitting followers to put their trust in him.
Something big is coming it does involve the war of wars and I believe that were on the precipice of it right now.
I want to talk about the strategems that I believe will be used to initiate it
It is a war between good and evil but on the surface it might not appear to be because its also going to include believers against believers and Im talking about some of the biggest ministries in the world
Tom Horn Full Interview with Steve Quayle on the Hagmann and Hagmann Report:
*Note: This is a 3 hour interview and worth listening to in full. For those with limited time, we suggest forwarding to about 1:03:00 into the interview where Tom Horn details his research.
Stepping outside of Church dogma by attacking the concept of free market capitalism may soon be revealed to be a politically motivated move by the Pope with much deeper implications.
At this point, while we should not necessarily ignore Malachys prophecy or the Popes enyclical, some skepticism is certainly understandable.
Until Francis begins to put his support behind world leaders or political movements, it remains difficult, if not impossible, to confirm the Pope has ulterior motives and is, in fact, fulfillment of prophecy. However, the goings on in the world suggest that Tom Horn is on target with his assessment that something big is coming. And the fact that there are over one billion Catholics globally indicates that whatever happens will also involve the Church as well as this pope.
History proves that the Roman Catholic Church has been directly involved in confrontations since its very inception, so its involvement now would not be without precedent.
When God is angry with us, when he wants to punish us, he sends incompetent and lousey priests. This Pope is the 112th Pope of the Malachy Prophecies.
If you don't know what that means, I strongly suggest reading the entire article.
Does he still believe Christ is the only way to salvation, or is that too old fashioned?
Pray America is Waking
Who am I to judge?
The media is focusing on only a small part of his document. It is mostly about evangelization.
May there is one page on economics.
Did you read the entire document?
I wish this Pope would focus on his own profession and refrain from commenting on economics....a subject he knows nothing about.
Coming from Argentina you would think he would know how precisely how excessive taxation and spending can bankrupt government.
If the Pope is into “wealth distribution,” he should practice what he preaches.
Auction off the Vatican art treasures in London and New York and give the money to the poor around the world.
Same with the Catholic bishops in America. They want amnesty? EBT cards and/or welfare for Mexican illegals in the U.S.? Then help cover the economic cost by paying real estate taxes on church properties in the U.S.
Maybe we should redistribute the wealth from wealthy black Muslims back to poor Christian whites.
Don’t forget this Peter the Roman Pope also has access to the order of Albino Assassin Monks as well as the supercomputer underneath the Vatican with all the Protestant names and locations. So he could be the most dangerous Peter the Roman Pope ever.
It’s the only thing that makes sense.
The author is whacko. I can’t read past the third word in this article.
A Pope is installed at a Mass. There is no coronation to it.
BTW, do you remember how everyone dissed Pope Benedict’s encyclicals when they first came out? Same thing here.
Did you join their crowd?
And this latest supposedly Marxist or socialist screed is the victim of a bad translation. What he actually said was that free market economics alone will not save anybody. That's straight out of the Catechism.
Father Z's blog explains how the Spanish was mis-translated. You know Fr. Z is a straight-up traditional priest, and he has had his moments of worry about Pope Francis. But not only have mistranslations and omissions come to light, Pope Francis himself has clarified and contradicted where it seems necessary.
We have to be careful not to run with what the media is saying about this pope. They desperately want him to be what you fear him to be. So you probably have a somewhat misleading impression of him here.
I don't much care for Jesuits generally*, and of course Latin America is full of liberation-theology types. But given Pope Francis' track record I'm inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt. And my due obedience.
*I was told long ago that the best way to tell the Good Jesuits from the Other Kind is to look at their shoes. A Good Jesuit will have beat-up, down at heels, grungy old shoes, because he's serious about his vow of Poverty. And Pope Francis is not going to change that - nor is he going to change his gregarious nature by isolating himself in the Papal Apartments.
In a few posts you will read “his words were taken out of context”.
Everyday it seems the man says strange things
since there is no 112 this one must surely be the anti...
Don’t forget the tiger blood and Adonis DNA.
that does it. I am done with this “pope”
Nature will take care of the third world poor. One bad growing season will sort things out.
“Francis has once again caused an uproar by claiming free market capitalism and trickle-down economics are unproven theories not backed with facts.”
Which is why he’s in the religion game and not the economics game.
God has a timeline that is a mystery to us. In the West, we bemoan how our culture has drifted away from Christ. But, at the same time, there has been an incredible awakening in Africa and Asia as millions have braved real persecution to follow Christ. On the whole, is the world drifting away or moving towards Jesus?
In Revelation, Daniel, and Matthew, we learn about God’s ultimate plan for humanity. Whatever this pope is, he is just another human.
In the US and Europe, we need to find our way back to Christ and the cross—not to save the world from God’s wrath, but to prepare ourselves to be a part of his plan by being one of his when the time comes.
you can’t hide, Dan Brown, I know that’s you!
Many of the Chinese people I know say the same thing about Mao Zedong...
