    Catholics Condemn Pope’s ‘Sacrilege,’ ‘Blasphemy’ Further globalist push for 'One World Religion' VATICAN CITY (ChurchMilitant.com) - Pope Francis' call for a multifaith day of prayer asking God "to end this pandemic" has provoked a blistering backlash, with thousands of Catholics accusing the pontiff of "syncretism," "blasphemy" and "sacrilege."      Vatican News is promoting the "syncretistic" event "I would like to remind you that on May 14, believers of every religion are invited to unite themselves spiritually in a day of prayer, fasting and works of charity, to implore God to help humanity overcome the coronavirus pandemic," the pontiff announced Tuesday. ...

    The Modern Church WANTS to be Nonessential Remember the Amazon Synod? Seems like a lifetime ago, and yet it was the last thing anyone saw before the lights went out.Francis says the Covid pandemic is Pachamama's response to climate change. I would argue that it's actually God's response to Pachamama. But who am I to judge? One good thing about the pandemic? It put the Francis Road Show to Perdition on hold. The humble pontiff was right in the middle of building his new Tower of Babel when God stepped in: No "Global Education Pact," no Economy Francesco, no World...

    Commandment #1 Thou shalt fear the Lord thy God, and shalt serve him only, and thou shalt swear by his name. You shall not go after the strange gods of all the nations, that are round about you: Because the Lord thy God is a jealous God in the midst of thee: lest at any time the wrath of the Lord thy God be kindled against thee, and take thee away from the face of the earth. - Deuteronomy 6:13-15  As clouds go, the October SINod in Rome was jet black; a new low amid ever new depths of doctrinal...

(Celebrating the 5th Anniversary of Laudato Si) Francis being amazing... again To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day yesterday, Pope Francis issued a weird sort of papal confession to Pachamama during one of his increasingly bizarre Wednesday Audiences: "We have sinned against the earth,” confessed His Holiness, prompting Christians around the world to lament: Wouldn’t it be great if Francis cared this much about aborted babies?Understandably, several news agencies rendered this as a kind of blasphemous play on the words of the Our Father: “Pope says nature will not forgive our trespasses.”   Speaking from...

    [Barf Alert] Pope Francis on Earth Day: We Have ‘Polluted and Despoiled’ the Planet ROME — Pope Francis issued a severe indictment Wednesday of humanity’s failure to care for the planet, as environmentalists commemorate the 50th anniversary of “Earth Day.”“Because of our selfishness we have failed in our responsibility to be guardians and stewards of the earth,” the pope said in his video-streamed General Audience. “We need only take a frank look at the facts to see that our common home is falling into serious disrepair.”“We have polluted and despoiled it, endangering our very lives,” the pontiff continued. “For this...

Like the pillar of fire that led the children of Israel by night (Ex. 13:21), the miraculous "star" which constantly "went before them" (Matt. 2:9) signalled the Divine nature of their trek and the fulfilment of the great Messianic prophesies of the time with...

    Pope Francis says coronavirus may be ‘nature’s response’ to climate crisis An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth and a global pandemic for a natural disaster. Pope Francis said in a new interview published Wednesday that he believes the coronavirus outbreak is “nature’s response” to humans failing to save the ecosystem. “We did not respond to the partial catastrophes," the Pope said in an email interview in The Tablet and Commonwealth magazines. “Who now speaks of the fires in Australia, or remembers that 18 months ago a boat could cross the North Pole because the glaciers had...

April 8, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Despite the current corona crisis, the Pan-Amazonian ecclesial network REPAM announced on 3 April that Pope Francis has approved of the establishment of a new episcopal body of the bishops of the Amazon region which had been proposed by the Amazon Synod's final document.  This is the first proof that Pope Francis did not abrogate or censor the Synod's final documents...

    Pope Francis Strips God’s Wrath From Mass for Pandemic Catholics mock new liturgy as 'April Fools' joke' VATICAN CITY (ChurchMilitant.com) - The new "Mass in Time of Pandemic," published on April 1 by the Vatican's Congregation for Divine Worship, has been stripped of all references to the "wrath of God." The liturgy, approved by Pope Francis, eliminates all prayers emphasizing "repentance" — references which abound in the "Recordare domine testamenti" [Remember, Lord, thy covenant] votive Mass — composed and used for deliverance from pestilences since the Black Plague in the mid-14th century.   Old "Mass for Deliverance from Death in Time of Pestilence" In the...

    Italy Has Been Chastised. But by Whom? As things now stand, worldwide the number of reported cases of the viral disease misdescribed as “the coronavirus” — there are many coronaviruses circulating in the world, including the one that causes the common cold — stands at 576,000, while the fatalities attributed to the disease stand at 26,000. That’s a fatality rate of 4.5%, but that is based on a tiny sample of the world’s population of 7 billion with a large selection bias in favor of those who are sick or very sick and have sought medical attention. In fact, among...

    Pope Believes Chinese Virus Is Nature’s Wrath ROME (ChurchMilitant.com) - Pope Francis is weighing in on one of the most troubling theological questions of all time: Does God bring about natural disasters and other trials to punish humans for their sins? His answer is "No."Dr. Gavin Ashenden But Mother Nature does. In a Skype interview aired on Spanish television, Francis suggested the global pandemic is nature's response to man's ecological sins: "God always forgives. We forgive from time to time. Nature never forgives. Fires, earthquakes ... nature is kicking in so that we take care of nature." Some analysts note that embedded within the pontiff's remarks...

    Pope Francis: Coronavirus Pandemic Is Nature ‘Throwing a Tantrum’ ROME — Pope Francis told a Spanish journalist Sunday that nature never forgives and the coronavirus pandemic is nature’s cry for humans to take better care of creation. Asked by a Spanish journalist via Skype whether the COVID-19 pandemic is nature’s way of taking “revenge” on humanity, the pontiff suggested that nature is calling for attention.“There’s a saying, which you have heard: ‘God always forgives. We sometimes forgive. Nature never forgives,’” the pope said. “Fires, earthquakes … nature is throwing a tantrum so that we will take care of her.”

    Deranged Doctrines in Francis’ Querida Amazonia Querida Amazonia (QA) contains some crazy statements which have gone unnoticed.In §5, Francis says he wants to awaken the whole world's “affection” for the Amazon region which he calls nothing less than a “sacred mystery,” a term which designates the Sacraments.According to Francis we cannot only “love” the Amazon region but “we can feel intimately a part of it.” As a consequence the region will become “like a mother to us” (55).Francis insists that we shouldn't view the peoples who live isolated from the outside world, as "'uncivilised' savages." Instead, he presents them euphemistically...

    I filed my column just after it came out; I cannot claim to have deeply studied the papal document, Querida Amazonia. Given more time, I’d hesitate to study it any deeper. Like many Catholics, who at least aspire to be “faithful” and “traditional,” I simply rejoice in what it doesn’t say. It doesn’t, in itself, advance such campaigns as those for the marriage of priests, or the ordination of women. It does recommend the appalling Amazon Synod Final Report, rather than ignore it, or better, refute it. This is the “footnote” tactic, tried by Bergoglio before. But now it can...

The pope wrote that it is 'possible to take up an indigenous symbol in some way, without necessarily considering it as idolatry February 12, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – In his new exhortation released today on the Amazon Synod, Pope Francis made statements about “indigenous” symbols and “certain religious practices” that could be interpreted as a defense of the use of the controversial “Pachamama” statues during the synod in Rome last year. In section 78 of Querida Amazonia, Pope Francis states that people should “not be quick to describe...

HERZOGENRATH, Germany, February 10, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — The German diocese of Aachen has pressured a parish not to host a talk by Alexander Tschugguel, who in October 2019 threw the Pachamama statues displayed in a church into the Tiber River. According to a press release put out by parish priest Father Guido Rodheudt, the diocese feared that the talk, including a discussion immediately...

    “We see ourselves not as an owner of wild rice but a symbiotic partner and a parallel entity from the Creator,” says Frank Bibeau, a lawyer from the Anishinaabe indigenous group in the United States and Canada. Harvesters use flailing sticks to beat the wild rice — or manoomin, by its Anishinaabe name — and release grain into the air. “A good portion of the rice gets sent out in all directions to reseed the rice. Maybe half of it or a little more falls into the canoe for food,” Bibeau explains. “So we are part of the natural reseeding...
