Sorry Francis devotees: "Nemo dat quod non habet"

As The Wild Voice notes: "Pope Francis claimed that the miracle of Jesus multiplying the bread and fish was really a miracle of 'sharing,' not multiplying."

This rationalist interpretation of the Sacred Scriptures has been thoroughly refuted.  See Father John Echert's excellent explanation at EWTN's website here.

Today, many bishops, priests, religious and laity, puffed up with satanic pride, have become enamored with themselves and their "intellectual prowess." And like their master, the father of all lies (John 8: 44), these too are now rebelling against God and His Holy Church.

These sons of Hell spend much of their waking hours contradicting Sacred Scripture, denying dogma and popularizing immorality. These pseudo-intellectuals arrogantly divinize man's intellect while ridiculing the Word of God. Saint Paul spoke of these disciples of Lucifer in 2 Timothy 4: 1-4: "I charge you to preach the word, to stay with this task whether convenient or inconvenient - correcting, reproving, appealing - constantly teaching and never losing patience. For the time will come when people will not tolerate sound doctrine, but, following their own desires, will surround themselves with teachers who tickle their ears. They will stop listening to the truth and will wander off to fables."

In Romans 1, Saint Paul emphasizes the fact that there is a connection between a refusal to acknowledge and obey God and a subsequent degeneration of morality. And yet, with all the sex abuse scandals within the Church and all the sexual immorality and dissent, there has been very little discussion about this truth. False worship and pride in one's own intellect cause spiritual blindness and subject men to the destructive and degrading drives of fallen nature - most especially in the area of sex. Saint Paul tells us that people who fall into such spiritual blindness begin to encourage others to do so. And so infidelity spreads like a cancer.

There is an increasingly hostile attitude toward Sacred Scripture on the part of many who believe that they can "correct" God's Word. Still others, as you note, alter the scriptures because a particular verse convicts them.

Contrast this arrogance with the Church Fathers. When confronted with such an arrogant approach to God's Word, they responded in no uncertain terms:

"They have not feared to lay hands upon the sacred Scriptures, saying that they have corrected them. Nor is it likely that they themselves are ignorant of how very bold their offense is. For either they do not believe that the sacred Scriptures were spoken by the Holy Spirit, in which case they are unbelievers, or if they regard themselves as being wiser than the Holy Spirit, what else can they be but demoniacs." (St. Hippolytus of Rome, "Fragment" in Eusebius, History of the Church, 5, ch. 28).

Ask yourself, "Why would Francis deny Jesus' miracle of the feeding of the five thousand?

God is almighty.  This means that He can, by His Will alone, create all things, bring them into existence.  This is Church dogma.  This dogma contains two truths: God can create all things and, moreover, through a simple act of His Will.

Sacred Scripture states this explicitly: "For thou didst create all things, and by thy will they existed and were created" (Apoc. 4:11).

It requires infinite power to call out of nothing (ex nihilo) even a single grain of sand.  And yet we read in God's Holy Word that, "God said, 'Let there be light': and there was light...'Let the gathered into one place...' And it was so...'Let the earth being forth living creatures...' And it was so" (Gen 1).

And this same God cannot multiply loaves and fishes?

There are those who, having succumbed to spiritual blindness due to a lack of an authentic prayer life, hold up Francis as a "Shepherd."  Those if us who have remained in the Faith while committing ourselves to prayer, see him for what he is: the Destroyer foretold by Saint Francis.

There is an old Latin axiom:"Nemo dat quod non habet" - "You cannot give what you do not have."

Francis clearly does not possess the Catholic Faith.  How then can he transmit it to others?

Francis is the Destroyer whose mission is to destroy everything catholic in the Church.
..."for in those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true pastor, but a destroyer."
(Prophecy of Saint Francis of Assisi).
The chastisement has begun, the Catholic Church first.
I was in Holy Land by early last october. The priest who guided us was the same kind of arrogant modernist mind as our Pope. He strived destroying everything I had been taught about Jesus in my youth.
For example he dared to throw doubts on the virginal conception of Jesus, he said that Jesus wasn't born in Bethlehem but in Nazareth and explained the miracle of the feeding of the five thousand in the same way as the Pope Francis.
I said him: "So, if Jesus wasn't conceived by the Holy Spirit in Mary's womb, then he was the son of Joseph, not the Son of God."
He remained silent.
I was fed up of this bad priest.

Excellent point! Good for you, jac! Thank you for shutting him up and putting him in his place after he dared to proclaim untruths and try to spread that evil nonsense. Those who do not gather, really do scatter! I’m glad you stopped him as he was spreading great error and about the business of attempting to scatter, (whether conscious of it or not.)
If only there were more like you who weren’t afraid to proclaim the truth, no matter what, ... in season and out of season...and everywhere. God bless you.
