Francis denies the divinity of Jesus?

CNS is reporting:

"In the latest edition of La Repubblica, Pope Francis' longtime atheist friend and interviewer, Eugenio Scalfari, claims that the Pope told him that once Jesus Christ became incarnate, he was a man, a 'man of exceptional virtues' but 'not at all a God.'
The teaching of the Catholic Church and most Christian churches is that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was incarnated as fully man and fully God.
As the Catechism of the Catholic Church states, "The unique and altogether singular event of the Incarnation of the Son of God does not mean that Jesus Christ is part God and part man, nor does it imply that he is the result of a confused mixture of the divine and the human. He became truly man while remaining truly God. Jesus Christ is true God and true man. During the first centuries, the Church had to defend and clarify this truth of faith against the heresies that falsified it. (464)"

Rome is losing the Faith.  See here.

This might explain why Saint Mary's in Orange has abandoned the Nicene Creed which says that Jesus is true God and true man. They love Francis the heretic.

Modernists hate Christ and the Church He founded. These words from the Nicene Creed really rankle them:

"We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,
and was made man."

They've lost the Faith but cannot admit this to themselves. And so, they still cloak their doings in a basic Christian terminology to perpetuate their lie that they're still Catholic. But instead of the salvation of souls, they concern themselves more with social work and social justice: clean water for Africans, clothing drives etc.

Pagan ceremonies at the Vatican and now this. Francis is not the Pope. He's a charlatan, an anti-Pope. Let's pray for his removal and that those who have been duped, who put this man above Jesus Himself, will wake up and be converted.

Alec, he's definitely not the Pope. He refuses to kneel before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. He's an impostor. Don't expect the modernists at St. Mary's to acknowledge this E. When Christ was mocked during a "homily," some of them laughed.

The Amazonian Synod is an exercise in the demonic:

Cardinal Manning delivered a series of lectures in 1861 under the title “The Present Crises of the Holy See Tested by Prophecy” in which Manning he foresaw a future crises in the Roman Catholic Church initiated by a false ecumenism and progressivist theology that many orthodox Catholics have loathed following the Second Vatican Council. Manning believed that this progressivist current would undermine the authority of the Church and ultimately result in a departure from the true faith by the nations together with the displacement of the true pope by a false prophet, thus ushering in the Antichrist and global apostasy. Manning also believed secret societies like the Freemasons were part of this conspiracy. “The secret societies have long ago undermined and honeycombed the Christian society of Europe, and are at this moment struggling onward towards Rome, the center of all Christian order in the world,”he wrote. But when he looked at the prophecy in Revelation 18 concerning the end-time destruction of Mystery Babylon, Manning saw it was the hand of God in judgment of worldwide apostasy emanating from Rome:
"We read in the Book Apocalypse, of the city of Rome, that she said in the pride of her heart, “I sit as a queen, and am no widow, and sorrow I shall not see. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day: death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be burned with fire, because God is strong who shall judge her.” Some of the greatest writers of the Church tell us that…the great City of Seven Hills…the city of Rome will probably become apostate…and that Rome will again be punished, for he will depart from it; and the judgment of God will fall…"

Manning explained how many of Catholicism’s greatest theologians agreed with this point of view:

"The apostasy of the city of Rome…and its destruction by Antichrist may be thoughts so new to many Catholics, that I think it well to recite the text of theologians, of greatest repute. First, Malvenda, who writes expressly on the subject, states as the opinion of Ribera, Gaspar Melus, Viegas, Suarez, Bellarmine, and Bosius, that Rome shall apostatize from the faith, drive away the Vicar of Christ, and return to its ancient paganism.

Francis is most likely the false prophet mentioned in scripture. At the very least, he is preparing the way for the appearance of the antichrist. All these things have been prophesied, and much more evil to come, before our Lord returns for His spotless remnant Church. Pray, and seek the intercession of Our Lady, that we may be counted among His chosen.God bless, and Mary keep you, Paul. In my prayers always. Maranatha, Lord.
