Pope Francis and the Holy weeks over which he presides: Prophecy being fulfilled
It seems as if each year we can expect some sort of mockery and/or aberration of the Holy Week customs and ceremonies. This year, it started before Holy Week. Lent began by an order from the Vatican ‘not to sign people with the Sign of the Cross’ when administering the ashes. And note, of course, that Holy Water is still not available to us – we know the excuse, but here in Australia, we have no more community transmissions, everything is almost back to normal – why not Holy Water?? Could it be that by removing Holy Water fonts from the entrance of churches, billions of signs of the cross each day have been eradicated, usually made by people entering our Holy Places. Removing holy water also removes the its power against the demons. The evil one must be laughing at his own cunning and our gullibility, and our lack of holy courage.
The Traditional Rite according to the Roman Missal
According to the Rite of the roman Missal, the rite of foot washing on Holy Thursday was performed by a bishop washing the feet of some of his priests within a Cathedral or other significant Church as it was symbolic and representative of Jesus’ act; as close as possible, in imitation. This is what the popes had done over the years- and bishops.
From the reform of Pius XII it was then able to be led by priests enacting in accordance with the rubrics of the Roman Missal; allowing 12 men to be chosen and the Mass to be celebrated in the Evening – see (http://www.ncregister.com/blog/edward-pentin/pope-changes-rules-for-washing-of-the-feet-on-holy-thursday) quoting Arthur Roche (the Archbishop Secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments) explaining as now going:
“beyond the rather clerical and reserved sense, taking place in the public assembly with the direction for ‘twelve men’ which makes it more explicitly an imitative sign, almost a sacred representation, that facilitates what Jesus did, and had in mind, on the first Holy Thursday.” Furthermore, these men were to be chosen from among “the people of God”.
So, the washing of the feet on Holy Thursday, up until a few years ago, looked like this:

Mother of Salvation: Many substitutions will take place until the new religion is eventually formed
My dear children, the face of my Son’s Church on earth will change beyond recognition and will be substituted by one, which is not of my Son. Substitution after substitution will evolve as the Teachings of my Son will be turned upside down and replaced with false secular doctrines. …
…my Son’s Church will become part of a political movement on a grand scale…

- Book of Truth (29 March 2013 @ 7:00pm Message # 3 on Good Friday)
“Today I was betrayed….”
“My dearly beloved daughter when Judas Iscariot betrayed Me, he held My Head and kissed me on the cheek. When those who lead My Church say they love Me, and then betray Me, you will see, clearly, their kiss of betrayal.
Not at My Feet will they fall. It will not be My Feet they kiss, but those of My servants, My followers, My sinners. …”

- Also see prophecy dated 8 April 2014 @ 8:20pm: “You will know these traitors by their symbolic gestures, which insult My Divinity”.
See it at: https://missionofsalvation.com/message-1094/
Because of these prophecies, we have come to expect some sort of mockery/ change in Holy Week:
Note that it is not only the rubrics of the washing of the feet, but also the setting: that it is not done in a holy place, least of all at St Peter’s, which surely should be the Holy site of choice, being the seat of St Peter.
- First Pope Francis, straight after his (illicit) election in 2013 in a youth detention centre, broke away from tradition when it was not conducted in St Peter’s basilica or St John Lateran’s basilica. He also departed from tradition, in that he did not wash the feet of 12 priests.
“In 2014, Francis visited Don Gnocchi, a center for the elderly and disabled. On that occasion, the participants in the foot-washing ritual ranged in age from 16 to 86, and several were in wheelchairs with their feet swollen or disfigured. Four of them were women”. Not men. https://time.com/67081/pope-francis-washes-feet-easter/
So after flouting the rubrics, he decided to issue a decree allowing women to take part. He said they are now officially part of the people of God. His emphasis is on humanism -shows that he is trying to put gender equality first – he is tugging at our heart strings to raise the plight of the poor, the sick and the elderly… BUT the emphasis should be on what Christ did on Holy Thursday.

- PF washed and kissed the feet of refugees at a refugee shelter. The 12 incarcerated prisoners, included Muslim, Orthodox, Hindu and Catholic refugees. This was a further break from tradition, when it included women and girls and non-Christians, outside of the rules of the Roman Missal. The Missal says that the people must be pre-chosen from the people of God. ( See prophecy above: ‘Not at My Feet….)
These gestures represented humanism and the equality of religions. PF even said “we are all children of the same God.” As reported by The Washington Post . https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2016/03/25/children-of-the-same-god-pope-francis-washes-the-feet-of-muslim-migrants/
Pope Francis washed the feet of Paliano prisoners 14th April and told them, “we are all sinners”.
On Good Friday, at the Adoration of the Cross ceremony, Francis did not kiss the feet of Jesus on the Cross, as prescribed by the rubrics. But the previous day, at the foot washing ceremony of Holy Thursday, he had washed and kissed the feet of people including 2 Moslems and a Buddhist. Kissing the feet was not meant to be a part of the ceremony. It was yet another substitution, which he began last year. After the feet are washed, they are dried.
The next day, on Good Friday, 2018, he fulfilled the prophecy of 2013 (see prophecy above: ‘…Judas kissed Me on the cheek…kiss of betrayal..‘) when he did not kiss Jesus’ feet at the Adoration of the Cross, but His face.

Francis kissed the feet of the South Sudan political leaders. (See prophecy above re “political leaders”) https://catholicismpure.wordpress.com/2019/04/12/showtime-francis-kneels-to-kiss-feet-of-south-sudan-politicians/ )
Holy week ceremonies were celebrated without the presence of the Faithful due to “health concerns”. Churches were closed and the faithful locked out!!
This year, many things occurred during Holy Week:
First of all, what saddened me was the Stations of the Cross, which focussed not on the passion and suffering of Jesus, caused by our sins, but on children’s concerns. The prayers merely reinforced an attitude of “poor me”. These prayers did not display to children, that it is Jesus, whom they should be contemplating, and offering their love to, and recognizing the immense Love He has for us. It is teaching children to focus on themselves. Besides all this, the petitions, such as bed-wetting, etc are an immense trivialization and mockery of the Sufferings of Christ. PF held these Stations at an all but empty St. Peter’s Square.
Secondly, Pope Francis ‘sermon about Judas directly refutes the Catholic Church’s stance and the words of Jesus Himself. The newspaper of the Holy See, L’Osservatore Romano, dedicated the first three pages of its Maundy Thursday edition to praising Judas Iscariot! It involves a picture of a naked Jesus bending over and tenderly ministering to dead Judas’ body. During his Mass at Santa Marta on Wednesday of Holy Week, Francis stated that Christ himself never called Judas “traitor”:
“The Church always taught that Christ was offering Judas a last chance to dissuade him from committing his heinous crime. But Judas rejected that chance. St. Augustine says that he received this sublime invitation to avoid his own perdition but he rejected it and persisted in his evil purpose.
It is Our Lord Jesus Christ himself who refers to Judas as a damned soul. Christ speaks of the Apostles, saying: “I have guarded them, and not one of them has been lost, except the son of perdition.” (John 17:12)
Strong definitive words from the lips of Christ!
About the betrayal of Judas St. Mark reports: “And when they were at table and eating, Jesus said: Amen I say to you, one of you who eateth with me shall betray me. And they began to be sorrowful, and to say to him one by one: Is it I? And He answered them and said: One of the twelve, who dippeth his hand with me in the dish.
“And the Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written of him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of man shall be betrayed. It were better for him if that man had not been born.” (Mk 14: 18-21)
Thirdly, the Sacred and Solemn Mass of the Lord’s Supper was celebrated in the apartment (private chapel) of a cardinal accused of embezzlement. It was described as an “act of Mercy”. It is highly inappropriate. It should have been in a public place – (St Peter’s would be most fitting) – not a “private chapel”, of one who had been stripped of his status as cardinal. Where was PF for his supposed ‘flock’ at that time?
from Book of Truth: https://missionofsalvation.com/Message-1302/
“…It will take time before all of these changes will come about but the seeds have been planted. All religion will be united as one and then merged with governments as part of a new global unit and they will lead the way until the man of sin enters it to take up his seat. Many substitutions will take place until the new religion is eventually formed and it will proclaim everything that appears, on the surface, to be for the good of all.
Pray, pray, pray dear children for the strength to endure the pain, which will ensue. My Son, Jesus Christ, cries tears of great sorrow at the way in which He is to be betrayed and for the souls who will be lost to Him on the way. It will be up to His loyal sacred servants to steer the ship, which will keep His True Church on course as it sails into choppy and stormy waters. But please be assured that every good grace will be accorded to those who remain true to the Saviour and Redeemer of the world during these harrowing and difficult times.
Your beloved Mother
Mother of Salvation.”
Each year, more evidence that the Book of Truth prophecies regarding Holy Week being used to mock Christ, and make substitutions have taken place. For those whose eyes are open…
