This is Pope Francis' idea of a priest in good standing?

This is Pope Francis' idea of a priest in good standing:

This is the "Social Gospel."  Venerable Anne Catherine Emmerich was shown this secular humanism which would disguise itself as Christianity:

"...this church was born without a Saviour, good works without faith, the communion of the unbelieving with the appearance but not the reality of virtue; in a word, the anti-Church whose centre is malice, error, falsehood, hypocrisy, tepidity, and the cunning of all the demons of the period... Its mysteries are to have no mysteries and, consequently, its action is temporal, finite, full of pride and presumption, a teacher of evil clothed in specious raiment."

An authentic charity always places God first. We read in the Catechism of the Catholic Church that, "Charity is the theological virtue by which we love God above all things for his own sake, and our neighbor as ourselves for the love of God" (1822).

Proponents of the Social Gospel attempt to reverse this order. They would have us put man first and God (if at all) after. For some 40 years now Catholics have been subjected to a watered-down Catholicism which seeks to replace many basic truths of the Faith with an emphasis on the temporal. It was Bishop Fulton John Sheen who said that the unrepentant sinner turns to 'social justice" to ease his conscience.

The results? In the words of Stephen Brady, President of Roman Catholic Faithful, "By direct promotion of, or by simply ignoring the use of the birth control pill by the faithful, the corrupt Hierarchy has purchased the souls of millions of Catholics who now live as unrepentant sinners. These compromised Catholics are, for the most part, the ones who are pro-choice, pro-homosexual, and represent the liberal wing of the Church that accept all the sinful innovations that have now found a home in the local parish. This sodomite sexual revolution, aided by the abortifacient pill, has brought on all of society's ills, including unchecked abortion, adultery, fornication, out-of-wedlock pregnancy, divorce, sexually transmitted disease like AIDS, and the complete breakdown of the family. This compromised morality, winked at by the Church Hierarchy, has brought about the corruption of every segment of society. The moral guidepost, known as the Catholic Church, has been so weakened by the current Church leadership, that any true moral guidance offered by a Bishop is now ignored."

We have seen this repeatedly. When a faithful Bishop or other member of the Church's hierarchy speaks out against sin, he almost inevitably receives criticism. Especially from the Main Stream Media. Recall what happened when Cardinal Francis Arinze spoke out against the evils of our day (abortion, contraception, sodomy etc) - all of which are destroying the family - in an address given at Georgetown University.

The Social Gospel is not the true Gospel of Christ. It is a counterfeit which has been constructed to pave the way for the Man of Sin.

"Fidel Castro is often portrayed as the "benevolent" dictator of Cuba, such portrayals are unarguably wrong. The evidence of his bloodthirsty and murderous nature is unequivocal and available for anyone who wants to know the truth. Unfortunately such evidence is rarely discussed by the news media and at schools. There's perhaps no more grizzly atrocity committed by Fidel Castro than the firing squads which he implemented. Beginning as a rebel, before he would eventually take power in Cuba, Fidel Castro used firing squad executions to enforce discipline, punish followers deemed disloyal or intimidate potential opposition. At the beginning of the Castro regime there was a reign of terror typical of revolutions in which the firing squad was used prominently but the executions continued for decades.

The Cuba Archive which documents deaths and disappearances resulting from Fidel Castro's Cuban revolution has documented 3,615 firing squad executions conducted by the Cuban state since Castro took over on January 1, 1959.

Opponents of the death penalty should be horrified at the amount of death Fidel Castro and his accomplices have directly caused. It's important to note that in Revolutionary Cuba there are none of the due process guarantees found in a western-style democracy. Most of Castro's firing squad victims were afforded only a perfunctory show trial the outcome of which was predetermined, some didn't even get that. Ernesto "Ché" Guevara is a popular culture icon, his face adorns posters and t-shirts around the globe. Most people don't realize that he was Fidel Castro's chief enforcer and had a personal hand in at least 100 firing squad executions, often delivering the coup de grace personally. In response to questions about Castro's firing squads Guevara once said, "To send men to the firing squad, judicial proof is unnecessary. These procedures are an archaic bourgeois detail. This is a revolution. And a revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate."

The true Christian, in the Creed, proclaims: Et exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum, et vitam venturi saeculi - 'We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come." But proponents of the "social gospel" have largely abandoned such a hope and prefer instead to embrace a humanitarian religion and to work for an earthly "utopia." Robert Hugh Benson, in his classic work entitled The Lord of the World, describes this humanitarian religion:

" becoming an actual religion itself; though anti-supernatural. It is a pantheism. Pantheism deifies all nature, God is the world, but naturally, man above all is God since he is the highest expression of nature. It is a religion devoid of the 'super' natural, because since God is nature itself, there is no longer a distinction between Creator and creature. The creature is God and hence arbitrator of his own destiny and establishes the moral law for himself....Humanitarianism is a religion devoid of the supernatural. It is developing a ritual under Freemasonry; it has a creed, 'God is man'; and the rest. It has, therefore, a real food of a sort to offer religious cravings: it idealizes and yet makes no demands upon the spiritual faculties..." (Introduction, p. xvii).

The Church's mission is not to solve poverty. In fact, Jesus said that we would always have the poor with us (Mark 14: 7). The Church's mission is the salvation of souls. When a crowd of people went searching for Jesus and found Him on the other side of the Sea of Galilee, they said to Him, 'Rabbi, when did you come here?' And Jesus answered them, 'Truly, truly, I say to you you seek me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate your fill of the loaves. Do not labour for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you; for on Him has God the Father set His seal." The crowd said to Him, "What must we do, to be doing the works of God?" And Jesus answered them: "This is the work of God, that you believe in Him who He has sent." (John 6: 25-29).

The work of God is believing in Him whom the Father has sent. Jesus reveals Himself as the Bread of Life. He reveals in the synagogue who He is, where He comes from and the good things He has in store for those who believe in Him: faith, the Eucharist and eternal life.

Proponents of the 'social gospel" have forgotten that "man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God" (Matthew 4: 4). Crippled by distorted humanitarian ideals, such confused souls forget Our Lord's injunction to "seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things (food, drink, clothing etc) shall be yours as well." (Matthew 6: 33)

With every passing week we witness strange comments or bizarre behavior from this Pontiff. Is he intentionally trying to wreck the Church at a time when she needs a strong Vicar?

I remain gravely concerned.

At this point many Catholics have become concerned over Pope Francis' sympathy for socialistic ideology and so-called "Liberation Theology" which is nothing less than thinly-disguised Marxism.

Pray people....pray!

In my opinion, Pope Francis is an example par excellence of a Modernist heretic, who has surrounded himself with Modernist heretics. He has completely ignored the mission that Jesus Christ gave the Church - to baptize all nations, teach all that He taught. Pope Francis tells us not to even try to persuade someone to become Catholic, and further -gives a free pass to communists, atheists, the unrepentant, and all members of false religions. Like a true relativist he treats Catholicism as just another flavor, just as good any any other religion. He cannot bring himself to teach that it is the one true religion and you need to come into it. In fact he treats those people better than Traditional Catholics, who he actively tried to suppress with viciousness. This makes him an Anti-Pope. I believe the man is a complete fool and is in way over his head. Pope Leo XIII, in agreement with the entire Church before him, taught that anyone who failed to uphold the entirety of Catholic doctrine was not in Communion with the Church. John Paul II and all post Vatican II Popes taught just the opposite, that orthodox and protestants were still in communion. The Modernist church teaches everybody is OK where they're at. This is why the much-vaunted Vatican II crowd's "New Evangelization" has no traction whatsoever and is a complete flop, and the modern Church continues to abandon souls to the devil as the diabolical fog envelops it.

This world is so sick
since it removed the brick
the cornerstone, the pillar
and became the “GOD” killer

The only healing medication
is not a “vaccination”
but a remorseful return
if not, this world will burn

When plagues afflict us
we act like a wuss
We freak out about Ebola
“ try some Granola”

a worse disease is rampant
it comes to us very lambent
it’s the disease of immorality
of lawlessness and bestiality

God, the infinitely Merciful and Just
keep challenging Him, He’ll combust
who do we mortals think we are
a new sparkle shining Dog Star ?

We beg of You, Our Lord and Savior
bring a halt to the world’s barbaric behavior
As Your loyal followers, to You we cry out
help us even if You have to use a knout

2 Peter 3:10
But the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.

These are two quotes I obtained from "Harvesting the Fruit of Vatican II" website:

Quote #1 By God’s grace, neither what belongs to the structure of the Church of Christ nor that communion which still exists with the other Churches and Ecclesial Communities has been destroyed. Pope John Paul II Ut Unum Sint-11

Quote #2 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 by her authoritative Magisterium

Pope Leo XIII Satis Cognitum

Anyone can see these two Popes taught completely opposite on the issue of communion. The elder teaching is what the Church always taught over its history, the newer teaching was an innovation of Vatican II. So this is just another example of the "New Springtime" cancer in action.

We talk about Islam becoming radicalized, I wonder if this can happen to us. Fidel Castro is a communist which denies God. This elderly priest if comments are true has lost his mind. I heard him in the 1980's in Calif. Strange how they never change or can see God's works in events of the time.

Michael Dowd said...

Good summary of what's happening and what's not. I remember Pope Francis saying he didn't want the Church to become just another NGO which it does appear to be. Competing with Obama is not the way to go. Hope Pope Francis has a revelation.

Anne Catherine Emerich is now a Blessed which adds even more weight to her prophecy.

TLM said...

The ONLY aspect of Christianity Pope Francis is talking about is the injustice of the poor, and our obligation to help them. He even went so far as to say that helping the poor was the ONLY AVENUE to salvation! There are some that would read this message and say: "I guess I can be a mass murderer, but if I help the poor, that's the key to getting into Heaven." He is at the very least not being clear about his message. He is confusing the flock, could that really be his goal?

I remain with you David.....GRAVELY CONCERNED.
